Killing Kennedy-The Movie Review

I was 16 years old when Kennedy was shot so I have a good solid memory from then. I was on a class trip to Valley Forge, Pa. with my civics class. When we got there we were told that the president had been shot so we immediately turned back and were sent home. As I was walking home I was greeted by an excited friend of mine with his arms raging and flailing in the air saying, “They shot the president and governor. They’re trying to kill off the whole damn government,”

That week-end I was glued to the TV set and when Oswald was killed by Jack Ruby on Sunday it   became a lifelong obsession with me.  I still to this day have  the newspaper articles about it, I have the original Life magazine with Oswald on the cover holding his rifle and Marxist propaganda papers in his hand and the Saturday Evening Post with a Norman Rockwell like painting of Kennedy on the cover. I’ve read and still have the Mark Lane Book and LP record “Rush to  Judgment” and the Robert Sam Anson book  “They’ve Killed the President”.  I also must be  the only owner of a VHS video interview with a man named James Fields in prison who claims to have been the other shooter in the assassination called “Interview With an Assassin” He has  since passed away. So it was with great interest that I naturally view the movie” Killing Kennedy” on the National Geographic channel based on the book by Bill O’Reilly which I am also currently reading.

The movie was directed by Ridley Scott who is best known for films like “Blade Runner”, “Thelma and Louise” and many others. I was very much surprised that the film struck straight to the facts. No loosely based story or taking liberties like so many supposedly true movies do today. It was like you were actually viewing history as it happened.

Rob Lowe portrays Kennedy and they do a remarkable job of making him look exactly like Kennedy even sounding like him. The last time I saw Kennedy portrayed so exactly was William Devane in “The Guns of August” back in the 70’s about the Cuban missile crisis. Killing Kennedy is interspersed with actual film clips from then with Walter Cronkite and Chet Huntley among others. New actress Ginnefer Goodwin plays Jackie and also looks and talks just like her. They have everything exact down to the slightest detail including her famous pink dress that later becomes blood splattered and matching pill box hat.

Another new actor Will Rothaar plays Oswald and Michelle Trachtenberg (who I remember from the Buffy the Vampire Slayer series) plays Marina Oswald. These two characters are hard to get look-alikes for, but the film does a remarkable job. They even have Oswald posing in the exact same position of holding his rifle and marxist propaganda papers in his hand and him shooting General Walker (who was an outspoken anti-communist speaker) through his window and missing.

The film doesn’t delve into any conspiracy theories and sticks straight to the facts which makes  it interesting and fast moving. In reading O’Reilly’s book he describes a scene with Jack Kennedy in the white house swimming pool with two lovely ladies when Jackie walks in on him just stares and walks away while a secret service agent tries to stop her. I was surprised to see this scene in there also done so exactly. O’Reilly’s book does delve into Kennedy’s sexual prowness and the secret service covering up for him with Jackie and the fact that Jackie knew but, never said anything.  I thought the movie was done perfectly and I remembered every incident portrayed so accurately in it. The only thing they didn’t show was Gov. Connolly turning to Jack in the car right before he was killed and saying that now famous quote, ”Well Mr. President you can’t say Dallas doesn‘t love you today.”

I’ve read most of the conspiracy theories over the years all of which are interesting, some more plausible than others and naturally the further away you get from such incidents it is easier to imagine more things happened than really did.  The only question I have is how does a guy like Oswald who was known for missing the targets  on the shooting range while in the marines and misses a general right outside his window  with a rifle with a scope on it suddenly pull off the crime of the century  with a moving target and a rifle not known for its’ accuracy and handling? We’ll probably never know and can only speculate.

Many reviewers are saying the movie lacks authenticity and lackluster.I guess these reviewers are so into seeing emotion and characterization in movies today or weren’t around when it happened to notice that this is not a so called docudrama, but an a actual,accurate depiction of real events. To those critics I say “Life is not always like the movies you know.” If you get a chance to see Killing Kennedy on cable or DVD then by all means do so. In the meantime check out the link below for some scenes from the movie. I also have a link lto Mark Lane’s film Rush to Judgement which shows actual interviews with Oswald and the Dallas police. I report you decide.

Mr.President, Tear Down This Website. You Can’t Make This Stuff Up!!!

 

Obama is totally out of touch with what’s going on with his Obamcare and not in touch with the people at all. In fact a new CBS poll shows him at a 37% approval rate and 57% disapproval rate and things that are happening with the website are like something out of a Mad Magazine parody. Obama says he doesn’t know what’s going on and reads everything from the papers. I guess that’s what happens when you go on too many vacations all the time. Just when the Obamacare experience appears to be able to go no lower – the website malfunctions, millions of policies are canceled outright, only thousands are able to sign up via online offerings, prices for policies are skyrocketing, and more –

In Colorado a man went to sign up for Obamcare and his dog got signed up instead. Shane Smith, of Fort Collins, says his dog Baxter received a letter informing him that a health insurance account had been opened in his name through Connect for Health Colorado.

“I thought, ‘Wow, this is so awesome,’” Smith said with a laugh. “They have gone out of their way to insure my 14-year-old Yorkie.”

Smith had called Connect for Health Colorado to sign himself up for insurance because his old plan was cancelled due to Obamacare.

He’s not sure exactly how the confirmation letter went to his dog, but he says he thinks it’s because of a series of security questions a representative asked him over the phone.

HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius went to a special media gathering to promote Obamcare and helped a woman sign up for Obamacare only to have the computer crash and a sign came up saying  the site was down.

So far people connected with the site say 70% of the site isn’t finished yet. They have had three years to get this up and running and spent almost a trillion dollars on it and it still doesn’t work. Meanwhile kids all over are creating websites and selling things off of them and a group of college techies got a similar website up and running for nothing, yet this administration can’t get  the website to work. Obamacare has since been compromised by hackers and people’s private information has leaked out. Friends, you can’t make this stuff up!!!

The latest HHS report says to expect a new wave of cancellations to the tune of 60-100 million more cancellations by the mid-term elections next year in addition to the five million already cancelled.  The administration admitted they knew back in 2010 that  there would be cancellations and now say they won’t be able to meet the deadline slated for the end of the month. Cancellations are expected to hit small businesses and some large businesses too.

The latest CBS poll shows only 7% say to keep the plan as is, 48% said it needs some changes and 43% said to repeal it all together.

People lost their plans, can’t get a new plan and are being fined for not getting the Obama plan. Meanwhile Obama is blaming republicans for Obamacare failures. That’s it. When all else fails blame Bush. No, folks, you can’t make this stuff up.

In poll after poll after poll, people are saying Obama is dishonest and not trustworthy, he’s not a strong leader and doesn’t understand the problems of the people. I said that at the beginning of his  term back in 2008.  A recent Rasmussen poll also showed if the election were held today, Romney would win, but it’s too late now. I guess chalk it up to buyer’s remorse.

Obamacare Death Spiral… *

DC insurance boss fired after criticism of Obamacare ‘fix’… *

THOUSANDS OF DOCTORS DROPPED FROM HEALTH PLANS… *

Mr.Fix-it,Un-Fix it

I was reading section of the Obamcare survival guide and it stated that there are 90,000   doctors in the country and 30,000 would be layed off due to Obamacare. Well now it’s happening as United Health has stated they plan to lay off thousands of doctors in 10 states.

The House voted on a bill that would allow insurance plans  to sell to people that would allow them to keep their doctors.

The U.S. House Friday passed a bill that would allow health insurance companies to keep selling policies that don’t comply with Affordable Care Act standards.

The 261-157 vote on the Keep Your Health Plan Act sponsored by Rep. Fred Upton, R-Mich., included 39 Democrats.

The plan would allow companies to sell non-compliant policies to current and new customers, and wouldn’t require the providers to alert consumers about the required ACA benefits that are not included.

This plan was supported by 39 democrats who defected and went with the republicans. It is a fair act but opponents like Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid  say it under minds Obamcare and Obama himself said he would veto any bill like that that comes to his desk. He is ruling like a king and not a president of the people. He rules by executive orders more than any president ever has and does just what the wants. I’ve said it before, Obamacare is not about health care, but about power as the government takes over one sixth of the U.S. economy from the private sector. Besides, most people have healthcare. If you go to any emergency room there are signs saying no patient can be denied. If a person doesn’t have insurance there are many ways to overcome that thru either charity care, or passing it onto the state or referring them to hospitals that take charity cases.

Obama said he heard the American people after 5 million lost their health insurance and said they can have it extended for a year. This makes matters worse. He’s only doing it for the mid- term elections coming up next year. He met with the CEO’s of insurance companies and they told them they couldn’t do that once people are dropped because it would mean a lot of extra expense in paperwork and employee time. In other words Obama is saying we’ll give you your insurance back for one year then take it away from you again.

(Reuters) – UnitedHealth Group dropped thousands of doctors from its networks in recent weeks, leaving many elderly patients unsure whether they need to switch plans to continue seeing their doctors, the Wall Street Journal reported on Friday.

The insurer said in October that underfunding of Medicare Advantage plans for the elderly could not be fully offset by the company’s other healthcare business. The company also reported spending more healthcare premiums on medical claims in the third quarter, due mainly to government cuts to payments for Medicare Advantage services.

The Journal report said that doctors in at least 10 states were notified of being laid off the plans, some citing “significant changes and pressures in the healthcare environment.” According to the notices, the terminations can be appealed within 30 days.

Looks like it was the Democrats and Obama all along that was lying to the American people. And Harry Reid of the senate that was not allowing the GOP bills to come to the floor for a vote because Obama and Valerie Jarrett told him not to allow it for any reason. And it was Valerie Jarrett that told the President not to compromise or even talk to the GOP about the the Shut down of Government. Obama and Reid and Jarrett were the ones who planed that mess from the WH.

Based on new poll data the President’s approval rating hovers between 37-41%. This negative rating is the worst of his presidency and is due to the nightmarish launch of Obamacare, his signature program. In his news conference the other day, the President even admitted that he “fumbled” the rollout of Obamacare. It was due to his administration’s utter incompetence, and the waste, fraud and abuse that characterize Obamacare and every government program.

MY advice is for us ALL, regardless of Party, do what is legal and effective to DEFEND our economy, create more jobs, and embrace our REPUBLIC! Check out  the links I have provided below:

Ben Carson: ‘Ideologue’ Obama Should Have Consulted Insurance Experts

Beware China,Iran and North Korea

While  the country is being obsessed with Obamcare discussions, China revealed that its’ nuclear powered submarines can reach American cities and Iran and North Korea are arming and testing for such an event too and slowly, but surely they are drawing their plans against us. Does Obama know anything about this too or will we have to  wait  to hear him say he “read about it in the newspapers  like everyone else” like he said about the NSA, IRS spying, Fast and Furious and Benghazi. By then it may be too late for millions of Americans.

Chinese state-run media revealed for the first time this week that Beijing’s nuclear submarines can attack American cities as a means to counter balance U.S. nuclear deterrence in the Pacific. With  Obama in charge China sees how weak we really are. They don’t respect us nor do they fear us. Oh there was a time but its long past by at least 5 years ago. The only thing Obama is now concerned about is global warming. If the the Chinese launch it going to get plenty warm and quick. Obama has long planned for the United States to be removed as the world’s only remaining super power. He has done everything he possibly could to push an agenda to destroy the United States any way he can and is doing it  turning us into a communist /socialist nation.

Retired Army Lt. Gen. William G. “Jerry” Boykin, who was with Delta Force and later Deputy Under Secretary of Defense for Intelligence under President George W. Bush, says it is worrying that four-star generals are being retired at the rate that has occurred under Obama. Obama has removed 195 top officers over the last five years.

“Over the past three years, it is unprecedented for the number of four-star generals to be relieved of duty, and not necessarily relieved for cause,” Boykin said.

“I believe there is a purging of the military,” he said. “The problem is worse than we have ever seen.”

People scoff and say these countries are small and don’t have a delivery system,but consider what Dr.Peter Fry,Director of  theTask Force on Natronal and Homeland Security said recently in an interview with World Net Daily:

The most devastating threat is posed by an electromagnetic pulse, or EMP, and a former member of the congressional EMP commission says both the North Korean and Iranian nuclear programs are focused on taking out our nation’s power grids.

“It is why Iran wants the bomb. We know that from the EMP commission because, in their open source-military writings, they describe using a nuclear weapon to eliminate the United States as an actor from the world stage by means of an EMP attack,” said Dr. Peter Pry, who is also executive director of the Task Force on National and Homeland Security.

“Let’s not forget that earlier this year North Korea, which has the bomb and, in fact, we assess they probably have what are called super EMP nuclear weapons, which is a nuclear weapon specifically designed to make the EMP effect. That’s why all three of their nuclear tests have been so low yield. They’re designed to produce gamma rays, not a big explosion. It’s the gamma rays that make the EMP effect,” Pry told WND. “North Korea, in April, threatened to destroy the United States. The evidence is right there in the headlines if people would only pay attention to them.”

General Boykin has also backed up the EMP attack theory and  has said all Iran has to do is launch a nuclear missile from International waters and explode it 100 miles over us and the shear vibration would knock out all our grids and most people would die in about five days if not from starvation and lack of power then by radiation from the bomb.

Unlike his predecessor Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, whose hateful rhetoric made him easy to dismiss, the new Iranian president hides his dangerous views beneath a veneer of charm. Even with sanctioins against them,Iran is going ahead with their nuclear technology and has said they already have 32 nuclear facilities around the country. They don’t care about their own people so sanctions don’t bother them. North Korea has already detonated three nucelar bomb explosion tests. While these countries are building up on their weapons and supply, Obama is deliberately dismanteling ours and disarming us. He has already closed down the missile bases outside Poland which were interceptor missiles and had decreased our nuclar arsenal quite  substantially. Yes all this is going on while we are  distracted by Obamacare.

The Lies of Obamacare

 David Letterman has his top ten list so I am having my top 6 list of Obamacare lies starting with No.6 and working down to No. 1. Here we go:

6) Obamcare is a website where you can go and compare and purchase healthcare plans just like you would buy a TV on Amazon. (Tell that to the millions who have  had trouble logging on).

5) The plan I’m proposing will reduce the deficit by 4 trillion dollars over the long term. (He’s already doubled the debt and deficit and has spent more than all the presidents put together from Washington to Bush. We are now at 17 trillion).

4) The plan I’m proposing will cost 900 billion (It’s already almost two trillion with a capital ’T’ and rising).

3) I want to lower premiums by $2500 per family (Families are seeing their premiums rise as much as $7000 for a family of four).

2) If you like your doctor you can keep your doctor.(Health plans are dropping doctors by the thousands. Obamcare’s plan calls for eventually laying off 30,000 doctors out of the 90,000 we have).

And the No. 1 lie about Obamcare is: If you like your healthcare plan you can keep your healthcare plan ( Obama has said he prefers single payer where we all are responsible to the government which is what Obamcare is all about. It’s not about healthcare, but about control).

Recently on Sean Hannity’s TV show, Congressman Mike Rogers of Michigan said “Obamcare is ruining insurance for 85% of the people who have it in favor of 15% of the people who don’t.” He is so right.

Bill O’Reilly has it right when he said recently, “People don’t care if it doesn’t concern them. Guns to the Mexican cartels no big deal, four people assasinated in Benghazi,no big deal, but Obamacare affects everyone so now they are concerned.”

Now everyone is unhappy as more and more people get cancellations than signed up for Obamacare. Even liberals are finally waking up. Democrat strategist Kirsten Powers (whom I’ve noticed is slowly coming around) had her insurance dropped and found out she has to spend $300 more for the same deductible in another company.

We spent $684 million dollars of taxpayer money for something that doesn’t work. They never did security checks on it and personal information can be revealed. Even creators of it admitted they can’t log into it. Sean Hannity recently had a CEO of a software company on his show who said he could do the same thing and create a website for 1 million dollars. Obamcare is causing people to lose their jobs as companies layoff and cut back to save expenses and the cost of Obamcare. The rhetoric versus the reality doesn’t match. The people were promised one thing and they are not getting it. They were grossly irresponsible with our money. As Ray Stevens says in his song ‘We the People’,  “I don’t think it’s one bit funny/how they take so much of our money/ and do things with it I don’t understand.”

Speaking of Sean Hannity, Obama said you can call the 800 number for Obamcare and register there so Sean did just that on his radio show. The woman who answered was very polite and courteous and truthful and answered all his questions to his satisfaction. Because she spoke with him she was fired. Sean checked with his accountant and is gifting her $13,000 for her and $13,000 for her son bringing a total of $26,000 which was her yearly salary. Sean also set up a website for a job for her . He also had her on his TV show last night. She got hundreds of offers and is taking one. Sean is very generous that way and has helped people in the past. He had the scholarship fund with Oliver North for kids whose parents were killed in wars. That’s more than Obama would do.

Whitehouse Planned Shutdown

Like Judas of old Obama lied and deceived,

The republicans caused the shutdown he wants us to believe,

But I see thru his eyes and I see thru his brain,

Like I see thru the water that runs down my drain.____________with apologies to Bob Dylan’s “Masters of War.”

The shutdown is over and the world didn’t come to an end. Obama and his gang got everything they wanted and the republicans got nothing except being blamed for it. Obama and the mainstream media blamed the republicans all thru this, but this writer wasn’t fooled. Even talk show host Sean Hannity correctly referred to it as the Obama-Reid shut down and so he should. If the republicans caused the shut down why would Ted Cruz, Rand Paul and Mike Lee tear down the barriers at the war monuments? It has also been revealed that the signs made up and posted around the country at different federal sights saying they were closed, were made up six months before the shutdown with paper work leading back to the white house. If republicans were responsible for the shut down why did Obama give the order to all the park rangers to cause as much pain as possible?

According to an article that appeared on World Net Daily; The shutdown was deliberately orchestrated by the White House, according to the former foreign editor of Newsweek and editor-in-chief of the New York Times Magazine.

Why would the White House intentionally cause such pain and havoc across the country?

It is a ploy to win votes, concluded author Ed Klein.

He told the New York Post that President Obama’s closest adviser, Valerie Jarrett, developed a strategy to force a showdown with Republicans over Obamcare.

Jarrett recommended shutting down government because, Klein said, she believed voters would pin the blame on Republicans.

And that would give Democrats the opportunity to win control of the House of Representatives in the 2014 midterm elections.

The lie that the U.S., would default was another ploy constructed by the white house with the media scaring companies and people to death with their countdown to default each day when none of it was true again showing that the mainstream media is an extension of the Obama white house. Even Obama himself believes his own lies about himself and what he puts out for public consumption .A sure sign of a mental disorder.

In writing for Newsmax ,writer Peter Morici explained that Obama used deception and demagoguery to get his victory. Each month the government collects $250 billion in taxes, and if the Congress decided not to raise the debt ceiling, Treasury Secretary Lew would have had adequate resources to pay the $23 billion in interest to the public. The Wall Street Journal simply confirmed that the new law signed by President Obama overnight “permits the Treasury to borrow normally through Feb. 7, and preserves Treasury’s emergency flexibility to avoid default for a period of time after that date.”

At a minimum, that means another $400 billion or $500 billion in debt for American taxpayers, as the nation has been spending roughly $3.6 or $3.7 trillion a year, and taking in only $2.5 trillion.

But such numbers were nowhere to be found. The Chicago Tribune simply said Obama now has permission for “borrowing to continue through Feb. 7.”

The whole debate started as defunding for Obamcare. At first the republicans asked for a defunding, but keeping the budget, then they asked for a delay, then they asked that special exemptions  for congress and unions be removed, then finally they asked that Obama sit down with them .Each time Obama said “no” until they finally agreed. That’s when Boehner and his crew wimped out and gave into Obama and Reid and postponed the talks until January so they just kicked the can down the road. The media and Obama and Reid blamed republicans for THEIR shutdown and everyone in the U.S. went along for the ride and  believed  the great deceiver and media and blamed them too.

You have to watch out for Obama. He’s worse than a used car salesman and con artist all rolled into one. He’s the great conniver. The great deceiver.  

  When this debate started from the ACA (Affordable Care Act aka Obamacare)  people thought they were going to get free healthcare and that people who couldn’t afford healthcare will now have it even though the CBO says 30 million will still be without care.

Now many are finding that was all a lie too as doctors will be laid off, people are seeing their premiums go up as much as 75-100% in some states. U.S. Healthcare recently announced they are laying off 3000 doctors in the state of Connecticut who treat medicare patients so they will have a monopoly on them.

Government controlled healthcare is not about healthcare, but control. Obama isn’t expecting the ACA to work at all he has planned for it to fail so he can rush single-payer healthcare through. The “glitches” in the state exchanges are intentional, too, because this rogue regime is hoping to postpone the “big reveal” until after the mid-term elections. If the plan is revealed too soon, Obama will lose both chambers of the legislature to Republican control.

The plan is if they can manage to keep control of the Senate (and they even dream of taking back control of the House), they will implement their real agenda: single-payer nationalized healthcare paid for by those “filthy rich one-percenters” who will finally be forced to pay their ‘fair’ share!” Obama said he was going to transform America and he’s doing it. Shame,shame on all you ignorant people who voted for him, believed his rhetoric and lies and let this happen to our beautiful country.

As one comment to an artricle I read so  aptly put it:

Let’s see if I’ve got this straight. After last night, we gained nothing — no defunding of Obamacare,  no limit on the debt ceiling, etc. — but Obama and the Dems got everything they wanted. And now I’m working more hours to make less money and pay more taxes for people who want to freeload. Plus I may end up with healthcare that I don’t want that costs me three times as much as, which is worthless since I’ll have a $5000 deductible. And on top of it all, I’m being labeled an anarchist, jihadist, racist, etc., simply because I don’t  agree with all this? Gee, what country are we in?

Captain Phillips: A Review

Captain Richard Phillips was at the helm of the US-flagged Maersk Alabama when it was attacked by pirates off the Horn of Africa in 2009. After a failed bid to take the entire crew hostage, the pirates seized Phillips instead holding him in a lifeboat for several days until US Navy SEALS came to the rescue.

Such is the story and film about Captain Phillips starring Tom Hanks as the real Captain Phillips. The film is a very accurate depiction of what he and his crew went thru in 2009. You can really see and feel the intensity in Hanks face as he portrays Captain Phillips in captivity of the pirates off the Somali coast. The real Captain Phillips says Hanks did a good job portraying what  happened, but the real life situation was a lot worse because they can’t portray everything that went on. Tom Hanks plays Captain Phillips as the no non-sense all business captain of the Maersk Alabama with a cargo of medical and food supplies being delivered to Mombasa, Africa.

The crew is very adament about going so close to the Somali coast because of all the reports of pirates along there. Captain Phillips is very stern and strict about anyone who wants to leave they will drop them off at the next port so they continue on.

I thought the picture did a good job in not going overboard making the pirates too sympathetic but did show that they are controlled by tribal war lords in their country who force them to rob ships for huge sums of money.

Captain Phillips and his crew try to ward off the pirates with hoses surrounding the ship but to no avail.  The pirates board the ship while the crew hides below deck trying to outwit them while they take Phillips hostage.

The only character I felt sorry for was a conflicted 16 year old who Phillips tries to reason with. The others are real maniacs due to an herb they take called”Khat” which when taken induces feelings of heightened euphoria and mania and there is internal conflicting going on between them. They manage to get $30,000 from the ship, but say that isn’t enough and want millions. They are very aggressive and feel they are on a mission too and can’t turn back once it’s started.

Later on when Phillip s is being held hostage in the enclosed lifeboat he tells the head pirate,  “You have $30,000 you could be going back to Somalia, but now you have the whole U.S. Navy out there.”

To which the pirate replies, “We have bosses. They have rules.”

“Well I have bosses too,” Phillips replies.

The movie is very intense and holds your attention from start to finish and Captain Philips went back to sea again in 2010. The lead pirate is now serving 33 years in an American prison for piracy.

The actor portraying the lead pirate was picked from 700 other actors living in a Somali neighborhood in Minnesota. In an interview he said he grew up in Somalia and has seen the war and devastation by the warlords in their country. When he was picked he said he “Couldn’t wait to play opposite that Forrest Gump guy.” :D

Philips says he is no hero and just did what he had to do to survive. His real life crew tells a different story and are suing him for 50 million dollars for going to close to the Somali coast and endangering their lives. They claim he is self serving and arrogant and they didn’t like sailing with him. His wife says she never goes on any of the ships with him because as soon as he steps on the ships he is all business. He’s portrayed that way in the movie too. I’m including two links below so you can judge for yourself. Also check out the two cool trailers for the film.

The Real Obama-Reid Shutdown

Jack Wheeler is a brilliant man who was the author of Reagan’s strategy to break the back of the Soviet Union with the star wars race and expose their inner weakness. For years he wrote a weekly intelligence update that was extremely interesting and well structured and informative. He consults(ed) with several mega corporations on global trends and the future, etc. He is in semi-retirement now. He is a true patriot with a no-nonsense approach to everything. He is also a somewhat well-known mountain climber and adventurer. The paragraph below excerpted from one of his writings describes Obama perfectly:
Written by Dr. Jack Wheeler

“The O-man, Barack Hussein Obama, is an eloquently tailored empty suit. No resume, no accomplishments, no experience, no original ideas, no understanding of how the economy works, no understanding of how the world works, no balls, nothing but abstract, empty rhetoric devoid of real substance.”

As I watched Obama’s press conference today I couldn’t help but think of Mr. Wheeler’s quote here. Obama’s answers to the press’ questions were all empty rhetoric. He said he’s ”willing to engage any leader on any issue and he’s always been willing to compromise all his political life.” WHAAAATTT????? All he’s been doing in these last few months of the debt limit and healthcare debate was to “refuse to negotiate” with  republicans. He went further to say that the senate democrats have been rejected by the GOP and “it’s not his way or the hiway as republicans are saying.” Oh yes it is Mr. President. You have stood fast in saying you won’t negotiate with the house and refused all their suggestions from defunding to delaying to sitting down and discussing the healthcare and debt ceiling debate and compromising. Each time he said no and now he has the audacity to say he’s always been willing to compromise?  He went on to mention in that arrogant, sarcastic tone of his that  “neither party has a monopoly on ideas and that the republicans are holding him for ransom.” As with everything with this guy it’s always saying one thing and doing the exact opposite.

He called for civility and said  that’s an easy word to follow yet it is his minions like Pelosi, Harry Reid, Chris Mathews, Ed Schultz that are  constantly being uncivil in their language calling republicans “terrorists” arsonists”  “obstructionists” and “people with bombs strapped to their chests.”

The shutdown is from Obama and Reid, but the ass kissing Obama mania media would have you believe it’s the republicans who are responsible. It was Obama who shut down the WW11 memorial in Washington and then ordered barb wire put around it after republicans removed the barricades. It was Obama who ordered the Vietnam memorial shut down. It was Obama who told the two senators from Colorado to keep the Grand Canyon shut down after they offered to keep it open with state funds. It was Obama who gave the order to park rangers to inflict as much pain as possible on the people. Obama still hasn’t opened the whitehouse to public tours since the sequester, but yet it’s the republicans fault.

In his song Mr. President” Ray Stevens a sums it up exactly saying “  Mr. President we have illegal aliens coming across our border/ drug lords creating mayhem and disorder/States trying to pay their benefits/stock market’s in the toilet/job market’s in the pits/Mr. President what are you going to do?

To which Obama replies:  “Listen real close to what I say/ Never let a good crisis go to waste/ I’m going to take off my coat and roll up my sleeves / turn on the telepromter and give another speech./ Act real cool and talk real soft then go out and play another round of golf / Blame George Bush and his capitalist ways / then shoot a few hoops and call it a day.”

And so it goes. Check out the full video below  :D

Feeling the Effects of Obamacare

Michael Cerpok, is a high school drop-out, one of six kids born to a school teacher, and doesn’t come from a wealthy family. He has run two businesses for more than 25 years and says he may have to do more to literally stay alive.
 
“I’ve worked hard because I’ve had to, and I’ve had to, because cancer runs in my family,” says Cerpok, who picked his current health insurance based on that family history. His monthly premium is just about half of his monthly take-home pay.
 
Back in 2006, he found out he had an incurable form of leukemia that requires ongoing treatment until he dies. In 2012, his treatment bill was more than $350,000. But because of his insurance, his out-of-pocket was only $4,500.  
That’s about to change because Michael just got a letter from his insurance carrier saying as of January 1, he would be dropped from coverage because of new regulations under Obamacare. His doctor at the Mayo Clinic may be gone as well.
 
So everyone might have insurance,but not everything will be covered.

 A few years ago when Obmacare was in the making, many critics, including myself, warned the people just how devastating it is to you with the shortage of doctors, long waits to see a doctor or to get procedure, the fifteen non medical panels that decide who gets what procedure and who doesn’t and the huge costs to everyone. The Obamcare supporters all ‘poohed poohed’ us and were in euphoria over how everyone will finally have insurance and from the first black president too.” Ooooo’,Ahhhh” they all swooned. Well now that it’s here guess what? It’s all true, I always said hundreds of times, ‘OBAMCARE IS BASED ON COST EFFECTIVENESS VERSUS AVERAGE LIFE SPAN.’ Obamcare is not about healthcare, it’s about control.!!!

Back in March a friend of mine was involved in a car accident that damaged his knee severely. He needed an operation and had to wait six months for approval from his insurance co. His company is Geico who are notorious for not paying anyway, but with the advent of Obamcare and new regulations it added to the time he needed to get the operation. He finally got approval for the operation and while he was waiting he was in such pain and couldn’t walk so he called 9-1-1 to take him to the hospital. He was in one of the best hospitals in N.J.,  but  there  was only one doctor on in the Emergency room due to cut backs. He asked for a pain medication and they told him that he needed to speak to his surgeon about that. There was a time you used to be able to get treated in an Emergency room, but now they have cut back on that and just suggest what you can do except for extreme cases..He finally had the  operation and was restricted to his home to recover. He had a physical therapist come to his home and he could only give him a half hour session instead of an hour because of “cutbacks due to Obamcare” he told my friend. My friend also needed a nurse and social worker and was hoping the social worker could recommend someone to clean his apartment for him. They told him they no longer do that because of recent cutbacks. Obamcare  at its’ finest. Both the social worker and physical therapist displayed their displeasure with Obamcare.

My friend also needed a stronger narcotic for his pain and the doctor approved of it, but when his mother went to the hospital to pick it up she was given the third degree by the nurse at the desk. She was there almost an hour answering questions. She felt likes she was an illegal alien when she was born here in America and is 83 years old.

Recently on Rush Limbaugh’s radio show a senior citizen woman called up saying she went to her regular doctor to renew her prescription  and the nurse at the desk asked her all kinds of questions  about her other family members and daughter if they had any illnesses. When she said her daughter had several illnesses she was being treated for  they asked her all questions about that. The woman told them if they wanted to know anything about her daughter to ask her. She asked them why all the questions and they said it was for the new system. She said she normally takes about fifteen minutes to get her prescription, but this took about an hour. Rush asked her if they asked if her daughter was a lesbian and she said no, but it wouldn’t surprise her if they did. Rush said that’s coming next.

When Obamacare first came out it was under the guise it would be free and the other insurances would pay for it. Now that part has been taken out of the White House website and people are finding out the average cost is between $125-$200  per person per month. A family of four would pay about $800per month so do the math and figure it out. Obama said families would see their health care costs drop by $2500 and now most families are seeing their costs rising by $7,500. Companies all over the United States are dropping their employees to part time to avoid paying the costs and it is killing jobs and making us apart time economy. Many people are opting to paying the fine for not having insurance and will pay for doctor visits out of their pocket. Insurance rates will get so high to make up for people dropping out that eventually they will close. This is the Obama plan, to shut down the insurance companies so everyone is dependent on government. Obama took 700 billion out of medicare to pay for Obamcare and plans on taking another 700 billion out  for that also. With the baby boomers all retiring there won’t be enough of the next generations to pay for it and medical experts predict medicare will be gone in about ten years. See it is all about control of the population. To get control of the people you get control of healthcare..!!!!

Republicans wanted to defund Obamcare, but fund the rest of the government. Obama said, ”if you defund Obamacare  we won’t let you fund benefits for veterans and other sites around the country.” It’s his way or the hiway while trying to blame the republicans when it’s the dems and Obama who are shutting down the government. Republicans want to keep the government running, but Obama won’t negotiate with them. Each time the republicans tried  to make concessions  and compromise in the healthcare debate. First they said they would defund, then they suggested delaying it, then get rid of special exemptions for congress and others that applied for it and then let’s sit down and talk. Each time with Obama, it was “no,no,no, no”, yet it’s the republicans fault for shutting down the government and the Obama lapdogs in the media go along with it. The democrats and Obama are the party of NO not the republicans as they want you to believe. Don’t fall for it. 62% of the American people are against this law that was shoved down our throats..

Last Warning For the Trainwreck Known as Obamcare

Despite last-minute efforts, ObamaCare officially begins on Tuesday, Oct 1st. But even as open enrollment is set to start, most Americans still don’t understand what they have to do. Already, huge tax increases and fees are hitting — impacting individuals and businesses. There are more than 20,000 pages of ObamaCare rules and regulations. If you don’t know these provisions it could cost you dearly in skyrocketing insurance rates and mountains of new taxes and surcharges.Here is a partial list of only some of the changes in this train wreck you can expect:*Insurance rates are expected to skyrocket and are already doing so. People will eventually pay doctors out of pocket rather than pay the high rates. After a while with enough people doing this insurance companies will shut down and everyone will be forced to turn to the government which is what Obama wants. Obama said   people will see their insurance rates drop by $2500 instead they were rising to $7,500. Obamacare will cost each person about $100-200 a month. That’s not affordable so they will opt to pay the fine instead and pay out of pocket to doctors.

 *Medicare benefits will shrink. Obama to0k 750 billion dollars out of medicare to pay for Obamacare and plans to take another 750 billion out of it. Also the baby boomers are retiring and there won’t be sufficient costs to cover them.

*The government will decide the benefits of every insurance policy.

*New Obamacare capital gains tax adds a 3.8 surcharge to certain income groups.

*There will be a new income tax on health deductions.

*New excise tax on cadillac health plans that hits employers with a 40% penalty over a certain threshold.

*Long term care for the sick won’t be covered such as nursing homes.

*If you sell your house there will be a 10% charge that will go to Obamacare to help finance it.

*Be prepared for the coming doctor shortage as doctors will be laid off to help cover costs and there will be long waits for a procedure or MRI or cat scan just like Canada and Europe and people may die.

*A fifteen member non medical panel will come between you and your doctor to decide if you should warrant a certain procedure or not. The cut-off date for a major procedure is age 70. After that you can expect minimal care like being put on a pain pill or comfort care. These are the so called “death panels” that Sarah Palin warned us about.

This came about  when at a town hall  meeting a woman told Obama that her 80 year old mother needed a heart transplant and no doctor would take her until she found one doctor who said her mother had such a yen to live he was willing to take a chance. He did and the woman said her mother lived another 15 years. Obama’s reaction was “I’d just put her on a pain pill.”

This is only part and partial of the horrors facing us in this monster known as Obamcare.

Doug Patton in his commentary on GOPUSA said it best:

In a few days, the century-long dream of every utopian-minded socialist from Woodrow Wilson to Hillary Clinton will become a reality. And when it does, those who mocked Sarah Palin for daring to tell us the truth that Obamacare will lead to health care rationing, which will lead to defacto death panels, will have reached another milestone in their march toward “equality.”

“If you like your health care plan, you can keep your health care plan.
If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.” – Two of the biggest lies so far
in Barack Obama’s mendacity-filled presidency

On Halloween Day, 2008 — appropriately enough, since his tenure as president has been a nightmare that makes Freddy Kruger look like Santa Claus — candidate Barack Obama told the American people, “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America.” Well, guess what. He meant it.

But in an exclusive interview with Newsmax, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell insisted that Republicans weren’t fighting a lost cause to defund Obamacare as part of legislation to prevent the federal government from shutting down next week.

“I don’t think it was a waste of time,” the Kentucky Republican said. “The American people do fully understand that still, not a single Republican in the House or Senate favors this awful new law — and if they will send us enough additional new members to get rid of it, we will.”

In addition to delaying final implementation of the Affordable Care Act for a year, the House bill would repeal a tax on medical devices that helps pay for the law, said Rep. Devin Nunes, R-Calif.

As one responder to an article I read said “I hope every jerk that voted for this  guy in the WH faces a death panel one day.”

Obama’s Speech-Putin’s Ruse

                                  

I’m starting this blog with some comments that appeared on the GOPUSA site I agree with about Obama’s speech followed by my commentary as usual. In the first comment Lurch is the nickname for Kerry :D

Leave it to Lurch to suck up to the Communists led by Putin again. I think all of this was and is that he could get close to his heros again and take orders from them. Only Lurch and his stupes in the State Department would believe that the weapons will be confiscated and destroyed. All the time they will be sitting there on the Russian Naval Base awaiting the next use of them by Assad. Lurch, dig out the old files and see that you always have to verify everything that the Russkies sign onto. Complete incompetents. Mean while the illegal invasion continues on our Southern Borders non-stop.

Obama is way out of his league on international politics … Putin ( Russia’s Prime minister) will eat Obama alive every time. That is what happens when a totally inept community organizer, with zero governance experience is elected to the nations highest office. Obama’s election to office is indicator of the American voters ignorance of current events and politics.

If we accept this deal, we have surrendered our status as the super power of the world.

You can NEVER take use of force off the table.

But paint me as one of those tin foil hat wearers, who believes this is exactly what Obama wants. He despises this country for the prosperity we have achieved over the past two hundred years and now he has the power, along with willing traitors in our congress and the statist media, to put us in the kind of harm’s way, we will never recover from.

Well I will go along with your commentary and do believe O is intentionally sinking this country,
However, my opinion is that he is destroying us from within … socially, economically and morally. He is succeeding where Obama Bin Laden failed

 The above comments were on the  GOPUSA site and I agree with them totally. I thought Obama’s speech was weak and self centered as usual as he is saying he’s the one who ends wars and is taking credit for his threat for using force for ending this stalemate. Meanwhile new surveys show that 2/3 of the American people trust Putin more than they do Obama. If Obama is really concerned about “the children” over there we should have sent in a strike three years ago when the rebels were more pro-American  instead of now  when they are mostly Al-Suriyah, Al-Nusra and Al Qaeda  which are the most aggressive groups

Meanwhile Putin is playing Obama like a fiddle and the Assad agreement was just a clever  ruse on Putin’s part. While Obama is taking credit for Putin’s suggestion of having Assad hand over his weapons to U.N. inspectors he (Putin) is supplying Iran with S-3000 surface to air missiles and shield over their nuke plants in case we want  to  strike  them. Striking Iran’s nuke plants is what we should have done long ago  to show we are powerful and mean business, but wimpy Obama didn’t do that so now they are a year away from developing a nuke and carrying out their plan to destroy Isreal  and destroy us too in the process with Russia  shielding them with a missile shield.

Russia in 2007 signed a contract to deliver five of the advanced ground-to-air weapons — which can take out aircraft or guided missiles — to Iran at a cost of $800 million.

In 2010, then-president Dmitry Medvedev cancelled the contract after coming under strong US and Israeli pressure not to go ahead with the sale of the weapons system, drawing vehement protests from Tehran.

The source told Kommersant that Russia’s offer would depend on Iran’s withdrawing a $4 billion lawsuit that it has lodged at an international court in Geneva against Russia’s arms export agency.

While all this is going on the white house released a statement saying they would continue to pursue those responsible for the deaths of four U.S. citizens in Benghazi. What a total misconception. What a total bunch of B.S. The American people will not fall for that. It’s been a year and they know who the culprits are and the media even interviewed them at one point. Obviously he (Obama) studied at the OJ Simpson school of finding the perpetrators.

Last night on Sean Hannity’s show   the father of Ty Woods appeared with Col. Olver North and read a letter he sent to Obama demanding answers to the deaths and who gave the order to stand down.

In the United States, the families of those killed a year ago at the consulate say the Obama administration has yet to tell them what really happened, and why it is that none of the killers has been captured or killed.

“It’s hard. I never expected this from my government,” Patricia Smith, mother of Sean Smith, told Fox News. “All they have to do is tell me the truth.”  Sean Smith was a consulate information officer  who  was  among the four people killed in the Sept. 11, 2012, attack by al-Qaeda-linked terrorists.

The White House on Wednesday pledged it would continue to pursue those responsible for the deaths of four U.S. citizens a year ago in Benghazi, Libya.

“The events of last year, losing four brave Americans – Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Glen Doherty and Tyrone Woods – brought home the reality of the challenges we face in the world,” press secretary Jay Carney said in a statement marking the first anniversary of the Benghazi attack and the 12th anniversary of the terrorist attacks in New York, Washington and Pennsylvania.

As one commenter astutely said:

“First thing he (Obama)  should do is admit to lying to the American people. Secondly, explain why security was denied when requested. Thirdly, who gave the order to stand down and refuse to go to the aid of the Americans. This is just another shell game this administration plays in order to cover for their incompetence. The same people who now want to bomb innocent civilians are doing so to cover for all the scandals confronting them, Benghazi, IRS , AP and NSA. The say they will do something about Benghazi which seems unlikely, but when are they going to do something about the others?”

We have had some blatant scandal level cover ups within the Obama administration and every one of them have fizzled out as Obama, Eric Holder, liberal Congressional leaders, and the liberal media continue to ignore efforts to find out what happened and who was responsible for the decisions involved. And for who is Holder, who is supposed to be our chief law enforcer, but is really our chief law breaker, doing this? Well our current President of course…as Holder is the “enforcer” for the Obama led Chicago style takeover of our federal government.

NOW PUTIN ARMS IRAN!

Hypocrisy When It Comes To Obama

The nation recently celebrated Martin Luther King’s million man march and famous speech in Washington D.C. in which he declared, ”I have  a dream where we judge a person not by the color of his skin ,but the content of their character.” Enter Barack Obama. Ask anyone why they voted for him and blacks say “Because he’s black”’ and whites say, ”because he’s the first black president,” even though nobody knew anything about him and the  media never properly vetted him. If you dare criticize Obama you are labled a racist. Today there are still many unanswered questions about him from who his real father is, his fraudulent birth certificates (he listed three versions), his fraudulent social security number (they claim it was a typo),his questionable college attendance since there are no records of him attending Occidental or Columbia and no pictures of him  in any yearbooks or newspapers and nobody remembers him at either college, and how a young kid fresh from Indonesia  with no job could afford both colleges and there is no record of him taking out any loans, but he’s the first black president so that’s all that matters and if you criticize him on any of these you’re branded a racist. What happened to judging a person by the content of their character and not the color of their skin? MLK must be turning in his grave. I wonder what these people think if they knew MLK was a republican?

Recently on his radio show, Rush Limbaugh said the reason republicans in congress are reluctant to criticize Obama with the exception of Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio is because of being labeled a racist.

Well lo and behold, wonder of wonders, two leading Hollywood leftists, Ed Asner and  Mike Farrell are speaking out against their guy Obama on Syria and admit that Hollywood is not speaking out against Obama like they did with George Bush for fear of being labeled anti-black.

Another reason some Hollywood progressives have been reticent to speak out against war in Syria, according to Asner, is fear of being called racist.

“A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama,” he said.

Farrell and Asner both say that beating the war drums on Syria is one of many mistakes Obama has made.

“I voted for him, but I’m not proud. He hasn’t thrown himself on the funeral pyre. I wanted him to sacrifice himself. Instead, he has proved himself to be a corporatist, and as long as he’s a corporatist, he’s not my president,” Asner said. “A lot of people have lost hope — with the betrayals, the NSA spying … People aren’t getting active because ‘Who gives a shit?’ is essentially the bottom line.”

Adds Farrell: “I’m frankly deeply disappointed in the president’s foreign policy, war-making, his reliance on military rather than diplomatic responses, his use of drones, continued allowance of the Guantanamo prison. He’s a disappointment to me and other people I know.”

As much as Obama is loved by Hollywood power-brokers, Asner says he doesn’t fear backlash by speaking against the president.

“Hollywood can’t mobilize for that either,” he joked. “If they try to punish me, what are they gonna do? Take away my pension.

Another one speaking out against Obama going into Syria is his biggest cheerleader Chris Mathews. What’s the matter Chris, lose that Obama thrill running up and down your leg?

Many people are viewing  the attack on Syria as a beginning of biblical fulfillment of the coming  end of times with Damascus being leveled “Behold, Damascus is about to be removed from being a city, and will become a fallen ruin,” reads Isaiah 17, a passage some Christians say they believe details a horrific event that leaves the city uninhabitable and leads to worldwide tribulation and the second coming of Christ. Damascus is the Syrian capital and one of the world’s oldest cities.

Another passage in Isaiah 19 deals with civil war in Egypt and the rise of a “fierce king.”

Talk of those prophecies has intensified as President Barack Obama considers a U.S. military strike on Syria in response to what Washington says is evidence that the Syrian leadership used chemical weapons against its own people. In turn, Syria vows to retaliate against neighboring Israel if the U.S. strikes.

Speaking at a news conference in Paris, Sec.of State John Kerry said the videos make clear that the attack is not something Americans can ignore.

The United States has accused Syrian President Bashar Assad’s government of using chemical weapons in an Aug. 21 assault, and cited intelligence reports as saying it killed at least 1,429 people, including more than 400 children. The videos show the victims exhibiting what appear to be symptoms of nerve gas poisoning.

“Those videos make it clear to people that these are real human beings, real children, parents being affected in ways that are unacceptable to anybody, anywhere by any standards,” Kerry said. “And the United States of America that has always stood with others to say we will not allow this – this is not our values, it’s not who we are.”

Where was Kerry when Saddam gassed 5000 people in one day and killed a million of his own people. Kerry, Hilary, Harry Reid and I bet even Obama were castigating Bush for going into Iraq. Kerry bashed our troops just like he did in the 60’s saying “American soldiers were terrorizing Iraqui women and children in the dead of night kicking their doors down.” Now all of a sudden they want to do this “across the bow” strike on Syria that will open up a whole can of worms? Assad has Russia, Iran, and North Korea in back of him while all we have is “moral support” This can kick off  WW 111. Incidentally the so called stockpiles of gas Assad has are the WMD’s we were looking for in Iraq. Saddam had them shipped out before, during and after the war by Russian soldiers disguised  as Iraqis which is why we didn’t find them so Bush didn’t lie after all. Besides, Germany said Saddam had them, France said he had them, Britain said he had them and Saudi Arabia said he had them and he did have them until he shipped them out to Syria.

At a recent press conference Obama’s chief of Staff   Denis McDonough said Obama, Congress and the rest of the world no longer doubt the fact Assad carried out such horrific crimes against his people.” McDonough also said we have no military allies just  their moral support and don’t need them for just a missile strike.

As one commenter noted: “How can we believe ANYTHING, especially since this press conference was filled with BLATANT LIES…

LIE – “We feel very good about the support we have”
….REALITY – Obama et al are HORRIFIED at the broad coalition AGAINST their plans.

LIES – “Nobody now debates the intelligence” – “Everybody believes that Bashar al-Assad used chemical weapons against his own people”
….REALITY – Everyone doubts the intelligence. Many wonder whether the rebels themselves did this to bring us into the war.

LIE – “If chemical weapons are moved to the front lines, it means a greater risk of them being proliferated”
….REALITY – If chemical weapons are moved to the front lines, they will be USED, not “proliferated”

Columnist Kyle Smith in today’s N.Y.Post said,”Ruthless dictators who have been murdering their own citizens by the thousands aren’t likely to be scared by a pre-announced two day show of fireworks. Obama’s message that we should send  in a “clear and decisive very limited way”is another classic. Dictators don’t do limited.They do ruthless. That’s how they passed their final exam in dictator school.”

As columnist Charles Krauthammer  said, ”I say send a text. It’s less expensive.” :D

Obama’s War-Kerry’s Lies

Obama is down to a 35% approval rating in the polls. The world no longer hates us, they are now laughing at us so what’s a weak president to do? Come up with a war strategy only this time it’s not working. People from both sides liberals and conservatives are opposed to us getting involved. Over 70% of all liberals, Conservatives and Indepedents COMBINED are against this idiot’s stance on bombing Syria.  He blames Syria for gassing 1,400 civilians as an excuse for us to go in. But he says we are not putting boots on the ground, this will only the a limited war lasting a few days and this is not about regime  change. So why bother going in at all?

It’s interesting to note that all the people who opposed Bush in Iraq are now for Obama in Syria. By all the people I mean the main outspoken protestors like Obama, Pelosi and Kerry. We went into Iraq after  9/11. Saddam had weapons of mass destruction he cleverly kept shifting around so the inspectors couldn’t find them and eventually shipped them all to Syria. Saddam gassed 5000 people  in one day and killed over a million of his own people and they spoke out against us being there, but Assad  supposedly gassing ,and there is no real proof he did, 1,400 people is enough to warrant us getting involved. What hypocrisy!!!!

“I just don’t agree that a majority are al-Qaeda and the bad guys” Kerry’s own words. Lord help us, this is what we now have leading our country. Obama and this complete idiot. Maybe he should watch Glen Becks video of a Muslim tearing out the heart of a man and then eating it. These are the people in Syria that these two complete idiots want to give arms to. Folks we are in trouble!

It  appears that the Obama Administration has been arming Al Qaeda and other radical Islamist terrorist since the beginning of the Arab Spring. In fact, each day brings us closer to identifying the White House as the primary source for much of what is being fronted as the Arab Spring.

Recent revelations from Egyptian and other credible sources are painting a not so pleasant picture of a conspiracy between the White House and prominent members of the Muslim Brotherhood to destabilize several moderate secular Arab States in the name of Democracy. Obama supported overthrowing Mubarek who at least kept the peace with Isreal and stability in the region in favor of Morsi who was with the muslim brotherhood and favored sharia law for Egypt and annihilating Isreal until the military overthrew him much to Obama’s chagrin.  The same was with Quadaffi. He was a brutal dictator but was supplying us with useful information until he was overthrown. Now Obama is going after Assad.  Obama has even placed radical muslim brotherhood members in his administration.

It appears that the Obama regime has been arming radical elements of Islam and his Muslim Brotherhood friends, since the inception of the Arab Spring in Egypt and Libya. Stock piles of sophisticated weapons are arriving in Syria from what clearly were Libyan sources and there is now evidence of a Bengahzi connection and arms to Syrian rebels. All of which are illegal acts of war and violations to both US and International law.

As Sara Palin so eloquently put it: “President  Obama wants America involved in Syria’s civil war pitting the antagonistic Assad regime against equally antagonistic Al Qaeda affiliated rebels. But he’s not quite sure which side is doing what, what the ultimate end game is, or even whose side we should be on. Haven’t we learned? WAGs (wild assed guesses) don’t work in war. “

“As I said before, if we are dangerously uncertain of the outcome and are led into war by a Commander-in-chief who can’t recognize that this conflict is pitting Islamic extremists against an authoritarian regime with both sides shouting “Allah Akbar” at each other, then let Allah sort it out.”

Doug Patton on  GOPUSA site had this to say “Of course, in Obama’s case, it is not a matter of personal scandal like it was for Clinton. By telling the world a year ago that he was drawing a red line in the hot desert sands of Syria — that red line being the use of chemical weapons — he created the debacle that currently threatens to engulf the Middle East. He blustered at the time that if the regime of Bashar al-Assad crosses that red line, there will be a price to pay. No one yet knows what that price will be, but from the current discussion, it appears that it will involve the destruction of at least three camels, four sheep, a half-dozen goats and an abandoned aspirin factory. That oughta show ‘em!

What it will do, in all likelihood, is unify the Islamic crazies in the Middle East and turn Assad into a regional hero, emboldening him to attack Israel secure in the knowledge that the United States has no stomach for a wider war.

Yet there was the ever-arrogant Barack Obama, standing at the podium in Stockholm on Wednesday, embarrassing himself yet again (and, by extension, the fools who elected him) by announcing in response to a reporter’s question about his crumbling credibility, “I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.”

Obama is a symbol of much of today’s generation, which accepts no responsibility for anything. Therefore, when something goes wrong among his cockamamie plans, it must be someone else’s fault. Usually, of course, it would be George Bush’s fault, but even Obama couldn’t bring himself to tell that one again, not in this case. No, this time it’s the whole world’s fault. And Congress.  And  America. It’s American credibility that will suffer, he told the world, not his. Unbelievable. “

Meanwhile John (I voted for the 87 billion before I voted against it) Kerry says that the rebels are moderate muslims. Moderate muslims? Hasn’t he seen the video of one of the rebels eating the heart and liver of a Syrian soldier he just killed or the video of rebels shooting seven captured soldiers in the back of the head? It’s really outlandish that John (I served in Vietnam) Kerry would support us going into Syria since he is the one who compared American troops to Ghengis Khan in his Vietnam hearings and said American troops were terrorizing women and children in the dead of night in Iraq. Now when it’s convenient for his side he supports us going into Syria. First it was to be a limited war, then no boots on the ground, now he’s saying 73,000 troops will be needed to remove all the gas weapons there. Kerry was also supporting Assad recently and had dinner with him. Nancy Pelosi also stuck up for Assad. Now all of a sudden he’s our enemy just to satisfy their agenda mainly to make Obama look strong while he supports radical muslim regimes.

Rush Limbaugh recently theorized that the Syrian rebels gassed their own people and blamed it on Assad so we’d step in, overthrow Assad since they can’t do it themselves and the they’d be in charge. Being the way things are going over there and considering who Obama is supporting it sounds plausible to me.

Syria: Obama’s War

Obama is low in the ratings.Only 35% support him so what’s a weak president to do? Come up with an excuse to support a war to make him look strong and decisive. Only with Obama it doesn’t work. The people are war weary now with Iraq and Afghanistan and the pentagon says we have no more funds for a war. Furthermore,Obama,picked the wrong country to go to war with. It is a country  at war with forces from within and no side is worth supporting here. I, myself  don’t trust either side John Kerry comes up with a scenario about how Assad gassed 1,300 of his people with Sarin gas.Most probably sent by Saddam during the Iraq war when our intelligence spotted trucks driven by Russians out of Iraq and into Syria before,during and after the war(my words not his). Kerry and co.said what an atrocity this is and went into great detail describing all the bodies of men,women and children lining the streets of Damascus wrapped in sheets. The speech sounded eerily like his famous anti-Vietnam “winter soldier’s speech” before congress in the sixties where he described the so called atrocities committed by our soldiers “reminiscent of Genghis Khan”to Vietnamese civilians which there was no proof of.

As former Lt.Col.Ralph Peters so truthfully put it,”Saddam killed over a million of his people with gas. Where was Kerry then?” I’ll tell you where Ralph.He was probably stirring up the anti-Bush /Iraq war population. Now this time Kerry can say he was against the war before he was for it.

Now it’s Obama’s war as he hems and haws about going in or not,threatening Assad and tells where we intend to hit and with what kind of missiles not to cause regime change,but just to scare  him. WHAT A WIMPY EXCUSE for a president. Assad must be shaking in his boots. Even John McCain said Assad must be euphoric over Obama’s decision.

Obama said he was prepared to go it alone. All the countries except France backed out. He was prepared to override the constitution again like he has done so many times, but the outcry to go before congress was so great he decided to go before them to get permission. Assad in the meantime has Iran,Russia and North Korea backing him.

President Obama’s decision to seek Congressional approval for a military strike in response to reports of a chemical weapons attack in Syria drew a range of reactions from Syrians on Sunday, with rebel leaders expressing disappointment and government leaders questioning Mr. Obama’s leadership.

Syria’s government on Sunday mocked Mr. Obama’s decision, saying it was a sign of weakness. A state-run newspaper, Al Thawra, called it “the start of the historic American retreat,” and said Mr. Obama had hesitated because of a “sense of implicit defeat and the disappearance of his allies,” along with fears that an intervention could become “an open war.”

Many Syrian opposition leaders expressed disappointment about the move, and called on Congress to approve a military strike. The leaders said any intervention should be accompanied by more arms for the rebels.

“Dictatorships like Iran and North Korea are watching closely to see how the free world responds to the Assad regime’s use of chemical weapons against the Syrian people,” the opposition coalition said in a statement issued in Istanbul.

Still, some rebel leaders were angry. A member of Syria’s opposition National Coalition, Samir Nachar, called Mr. Obama a “weak president who cannot make the right decision when it comes to such an urgent crisis.”

Assad has said if we launch missiles into Syria, he’ll launch missiles into Israel which caused Israel to go on a massive buy of gas masks. This poses another problem for Obama as Israel  is our ally in the middle east and Obama has demonstrated disdain for  them and snubbed Netanyahu on occasions. One respondent to an article I read posed this theory: He said this is what Obama may be wanting to happen.  Assad attacks Israel and they retaliate and Obama steps in with a peace treaty making him look like a hero. I don’t think that theory is too far off.

Obama doesn’t have the brains to be where he’s at. Everything he says is the exact opposite of what he actually does.. His whole life is a lie, everything he does is orchestrated by someone else putting the words in his mouth, and others being paid to destroy this country , one step at a time.

The reason he dithers so much on everything is because everything about this guy is a facade. They took an incompetent Communist racist, taught him to read a teleprompter, gave him papers which no one has seen, grades which no one has seen, and told the sheeple that if they don’t vote for him they are racists. He’s told what to say, when to say it, where to say it, how to say it and can’t say anything other than what he’s told to say. As one comment  I saw said,  “In his college application he claims he is a citizen of Kenya. Did he lie about being a citizen of Kenya and thus his diploma is now in jeopardy or is he really a citizen of Kenya and thus not eligible for the presidency? Either way, he gained the presidency fraudulently. What a shame for a president and now we risk another illegal war in the middle east with Syria. I say stay out of there and let them fight it out.

Syria: A Theraputic Strike?

In 2007 then Senator Obam said “The president does not have the power under the constitution to unilaterally authorize a military attack in a situation that does not involve stopping an actual imminent threat to the nation” in response to Bush’s decision to go into Iraq. Sen. Joe Biden echoed that sentiment that same year saying he would call for a president’s impeachment if that were to happen. Therefore if we are to go by their words what they are doing is unconstitutional.
The left criticized Bush to no end for going into Iraq and Afghanistan. Now it is the right who is criticizing the left and Obama for Syria. The fighting in Syria has been going on for 30 months with 100,000 dead. If they were so interested in helping out they should have gone in then and not now. Maybe more lives might have been saved. Obama wants UN approval to have strikes in Syria when lawmakers are saying he should be going to congress first as they have the power to declare war. Bush went to congress first for Iraq and got approval, but then again since when does Obama go by the constitution anyway.
The problem with Syria will be exactly like Egypt where we helped push out a pro-American leader with Mubarek who at least honored the peace with Isreal and replaced him with Morsi and the muslim brotherhood. If they overthrow Assad, a radical muslim leadership will no doubt take over and our alley in Isreal will be at greater risk of being annihilated. By supporting the rebels we are supporting Al Queda who make up seven out of ten factions of the rebels. Our air force would become their air force. Obama said any attack would only last hours and not days but by helping the rebels Obama will be helping Al Queda get in power there. By bombing Syria Obama can say he held up his end of the threat. Who’s side is he on anyway? He didn’t help our ambassador and embassy people in Benghazi when they called for help and the muslims took over and now he will be helping Al Queda. Never forget his famous words “I will support the muslims if the winds take a different direction” and that’s just what he is doing. He’s supporting radical muslims. Because of his weak leadership, our allies don’t trust us and enemies don’t fear us. China, Japan and Great Britain as well as others are looking on him as irrelevant.
John Kerry gave a public speech condemning the gassing of civilians and in great detail calling what is going on in Syria “a moral obscenity.” If you listen to it and listen to his anti-Vietnam speech before congress in 1968 they are eerily similar.
It is not sure who really used gas the rebels or Assad. Assad says the rebels are using it because why would he use gas where his troops are and we say it is Assad doing it.

“Failure awaits the United States as in all previous wars it has unleashed, starting with Vietnam and up to the present day,” the Syrian President told the pro-Kremlin Izvestia newspaper in an interview published on Monday, which the Russian daily said was conducted in Damascus.

Mr Assad said Syrian government forces had been close to the area, in suburbs of Damascus, where rebel forces accused his troops of firing poison gas projectiles last week, and there was no clear front line there.

“Would any state use chemical or any other weapons of mass destruction in a place where its own forces are concentrated? That would go against elementary logic,” Mr Assad told Izvestia. “So, accusations of this kind are entirely political and the reason for them is the government forces’ series of victories over the terrorists,” he said, referring to rebels fighting in the two-year-old civil war.

During the Iraq war I remember reading that Saddam shipped his WMD’s out to Syria during and before the war which included nerve gas. This is where Assad is getting it from. As a quote from a responder to an article I saw said, “From what I see, the events of the world are simply happening too fast for Mr. Obama to cope. Add to that his naive ideological outlook, and we are seeing a foreign policy train wreck in process.” We need strength in leadership where we have none now.
