Iraq is now Obama’s War!

You own it now Barack

A prophetic warning from then-President George W. Bush before he left office about what would happen if the U.S. withdrew troops from Iraq too soon is getting new attention in light of the Islamic State’s gains, as each of his predictions appears to be coming true.

Bush, as discussed on “The Kelly File,” made the remarks  (Video) in the White House briefing room on July 12, 2007, as he argued against those who sought an immediate troop withdrawal.  

“To begin withdrawing before our commanders tell us we are ready would be dangerous for Iraq, for the region and for the United States,” Bush cautioned.

He then ticked off a string of predictions about what would happen if the U.S. left too early.

“It would mean surrendering the future of Iraq to Al Qaeda.

“It would mean that we’d be risking mass killings on a horrific scale.

“It would mean we allow the terrorists to establish a safe haven in Iraq to replace the one they lost in Afghanistan.  

“It would mean we’d be increasing the probability that American troops would have to return at some later date to confront an enemy that is even more dangerous.”

Bush speechwriter Marc Thiessen says all these predictions have come true.

“Every single thing that President Bush said there in that statement is happening today,” he told Fox News.

To Bush’s first warning, the Islamic State terror group is effectively the successor to Al Qaeda in Iraq – and they’ve overrun several major cities in Iraq’s north while claiming broad swaths of territory in Syria. Further, the group has been behind mass killings of Iraqi civilians as well as the recent execution by beheading of two American journalists.

The Obama administration has warned that the group’s violence threatens to approach genocide levels.

Though President Obama says combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, American troops are nevertheless returning in some capacity. The president on Wednesday announced an expanded airstrike campaign against the group in Iraq and Syria, and is sending hundreds more U.S. military personnel into Iraq.

Some lawmakers and analysts say this could have been avoided if the Obama administration had left a residual force in Iraq, or at least had responded sooner to ISIS’ gains in northern Iraq over the past year.

Bush, before he left office, signed an agreement setting the stage for U.S. troops to withdraw by December 2011.

Obama, though, was urged by military advisers to keep thousands of service members after that deadline to help the shaky Iraqi government. But when Washington and Baghdad were unable to reach a renewed agreement governing the presence of U.S. forces in the country, the Obama administration withdrew virtually all troops at the end of 2011.

“We needed to leave a stabilizing force behind, and we didn’t.  And of course, we know the rest is history,” Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., told Fox News.

Political Correctness

by AFVet

4bc29294fc7acb1fffe4fdc06ed1a5e5

Over the last six years, politically correct terms have been rammed down our throats incessantly.

The president has refused to address ISIS as the terrorist Islamic barbaric organization it is, because in his mind that may be politically incorrect.

FBI manuals have been revised to eliminate any reference to Islam.

In a response to a reporter in Wales, during a press conference, he stated that it will be very hard to ‘contain them now given the territory that they have accumulated’.

This from a president that was given information one year ago that ISIS was on the march.

So, instead of stopping them from invading Iraq, he dithered.

Thousands of innocent people have been killed in very revolting manners by primitive Islamic barbarians that we had the capability to stop.

Thousands have escaped only to become refugees.

They have no Air Force or Navy,…just ground based weapons that could have been destroyed early on in their campaign to establish an Islamic caliphate and kill anyone that refuses to accept Sharia law and it’s tenants.

It is a shame that we have been harnessed with a president that is incapable of making decisions in a timely manner.

A president that was elected by people that had no idea of whom they were electing and for the most part didn’t really care.

A president that does not have the experience to surround himself with advisers that see what is coming on the horizon, instead they have the tendency to use endless chatter against people that are more than happy to die for Allah.

Perhaps this is God’s way of giving US a slap on the hand, but, in the next two years, this United States of America will face one of the greatest tests we have ever faced.

Have faith America, we outnumber them and we need to show them that in November.

America’s Biggest Terrorism Threat = Barack Obama

Glenn Beck predicted this while Obama ignored the warning

6077_427670680602317_612790271_n21

Well Mr. President, a fine mess you’ve gotten us in to this time. 

Will you ever learn or is that beyond the ability of a Community Organizer?

America has gone from bad to worse under your feeble socialistic agenda and now the world has become a cup of trembling because of your narrow view of what is happening and what should have been done in the Middle East.

140612143116-cnnx-iraq-map-new-story-body

You seem to think the world is wrong and you are right in spite of the glaring facts in front of you.

Perhaps you would have been better off had you listened to Glenn Beck’s warnings on the Middle East instead of trying to make him out to be a right wing loon. 

Glenn Beck has proven himself to be so very right, and you, have proven yourself to be so very wrong time and again.

In 2008, Joe Biden said it best in the debates when he said: 

Barack Obama is not qualified to be president.

biden_obama_not_qualified

It appears you have proven Joe Biden to be correct as America slides deeper into decline under your leadership.

You Mr. President have been proven wrong about Egypt, Libya, Iran, Syria, Iraq  and the newest threat, ISIS whom you referred to as a…

JV Terrorist Group.

This is the price that is being paid for your Lethal Ineptitude Mr. President

Obama’s ‘Keystone Cop’ Administration has got to Go!

keystone cop

By now I am sure that just about every American is fed up with the Key Stone Cops we elected to represent us in Washington.  Over the last ten or fifteen years we have watched our political leaders play out their greedy games and childish attacks on one another all the while ignoring the wants and needs of their constituents.  We have watched them in their march to grab as much power as they can from We the People all the while lining their pockets with the fruits of our labor.

I say Enough is Enough already because the time has come for us to put into power a 3rd Party that will insure our constitutional rights and put an end to the stalemate we have been seeing in our nations capitol.

The time has come and is long overdo for the Tea Party to pull itself up by its Grass Roots and become a real contender in our nations political arena.

Caliphate: Glenn Beck’s Dire Warning has become Our Reality!

The Islamic State Terror Group’s Spokesman Has a Message for the United States: ‘I Say to America…’

(Warning: This Video is very Graphic)

“I say to America, that the Islamic Caliphate has been established,” Abu Mosa said. “And we will not stop.”

“Don’t be cowards and attack us with drones,” he continued. “Instead send your soldiers, the ones we humiliated in Iraq. We will humiliate them everywhere, God willing, and we will raise the flag of Allah in the White House.”

Glenn Beck’s Dire Message was scoffed at back in those days when he was on Fox News and yet today that message has become our new reality.  This President’s policy of removing our troops from Iraq without leaving a contingency force in place is just one more example of how he has turned the Middle East into a…

Middle East Crisis – Border Crisis – Ukraine Crisis and Obama’s Fundraising Trips

the-amateurHat tip to Fox News for this Report

 President Obama began his three-day West Coast fundraising tour in Seattle with an admission that mushrooming global crises were adding anxiety to an American public already concerned about the economy. 

“Part of people’s concern is just the sense that around the world the old order isn’t holding and we’re not quite yet where we need to be based on the new order,” said Obama, who later cautioned against letting those anxieties lead to cynicism and a lack of interest in democracy.

“People who really need government to work for them on their behalf, they withdraw, they opt out, and that makes government even more dysfunctional,” he said.

The president already has taken heat for making time for a burger stop and fundraisers last week shortly after Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was downed over Ukraine, killing hundreds. While the president repeatedly has addressed the tragedy in public, he also spent his Sunday playing golf at Fort Belvoir. 

Later Tuesday, Obama will attend a Democratic Party fundraiser in Seattle, before catching Air Force One to San Francisco. He’ll end the three-day swing later this week in Los Angeles. 

The White House has defended the president’s busy political schedule, which the president’s team largely has not changed in response to world events. 

Obamax-large“What the president is looking at and what his team is looking at is, does he have what he needs to do his job?”

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters on Monday, in response to questions about the president’s fundraising. 

Asked about Obama’s fundraising last week in New York, Earnest said it was not a mistake and noted that the president made calls to the leaders of Ukraine and Malaysia amid the Flight 17 tragedy. 

“When the president travels, he travels with an array of staff and advisers and communications equipment that allows him to do his job from wherever he happens to be,” Earnest said. “And if it becomes clear that there’s a need for him to come back to the White House in order to fulfill those functions, then we’ll make a change in his schedule. Right now, it’s not apparent that that’s the case.” 

But Republican critics have questioned the president’s stay-the-course strategy on fundraisers. 

In response to the White House defense of its own itinerary, the Republican National Committee tweeted: “The White House still feels Obama’s choice of burgers & fundraisers over responding to crises was the right one.” 

Aside from the Malaysia Airlines tragedy and deliberations over how to respond to the suspected Russian connection, the administration continues to grapple with the surge of illegal immigrant minors along the U.S.-Texas border, and with the mounting death toll in the war between Israelis and Palestinians in the Gaza Strip. 

mm

After Texas Gov. Rick Perry announced the deployment of National Guard personnel to the border in his state to deal with the surge, Rep. Louie Gohmert, R-Texas, ribbed the president for his schedule. 

“The fact is if the president weren’t so busy playing golf or pool, he would know the integration has been happening,” Gohmert told Fox News, referring to collaboration along the border between various Border Patrol and security officials. 

Obama did abandon one idea for the trip, however. The White House had been in touch with late-night talk show host Jimmy Kimmel about a presidential appearance on his show during the stop in Los Angeles, but is not going forward. 

“We elected not to do it this time, but hope we can arrange to do it in the near future,” a White House official said. 

But on the fundraising trail, Obama remains a potent draw among the Democratic Party’s wealthy donors, who pay up to $32,400 to be in intimate settings with the president. 

The fundraising highlight of the trip will be a Democratic National Committee event Wednesday at the Beverly Hills home of Shonda Rhimes, the producer of the ABC series “Scandal,” a drama set in modern-day Washington. Kerry Washington, who plays the lead role in the show, is among the hosts. 

So far this 2013-14 election cycle, Obama has attended 73 fundraising events for Democratic Party groups. During the 2009-10 midterm cycle, when Republicans won control of the House, Obama attended 98 fundraisers, according to CBS News White House reporter Mark Knoller, who keeps detailed records of presidential travels and events. 

Obama has outpaced his predecessor in fundraising, having attended 395 fundraisers during his presidency as of this week. According to Knoller’s statistics, then-President George W. Bush had attended 217 at the same point in his second term. 

The 395 is more than Bush attended during his entire presidency. 

1940017_791758964186399_1426092954_n

Obama has devoted much of his effort to the Democratic National Committee, which last month raised $9 million and cut its debt to $3 million from a one-time high of $23 million. Obama also will raise money for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, the political arm of the party that assists Democratic House incumbents and candidates. 

While the House is expected to remain in Republican hands after the election, the fate of the Democratic-controlled Senate is much more in question, raising the stakes for fundraising. 

Obama has at least one bit of policy-driven business set aside for the trip. In Los Angeles on Thursday he plans to go to a community college to draw attention to jobs training, particularly for work requiring specialized skills, like health care.

Happy Days Are Gone Again…by Bob Mack

Happy Days Are Gone Again

There is a grave threat in the White House. If he is not thrown out or otherwise constrained in the near future, national security will inevitably become a top priority for Americans, forced by tragedy, not just to give up “piña coladas and getting caught in the rain,” but to survive a Dark Age into which their president led them. (No Mr. President, You are the ‘Serious Threat to Everybody’s Future’)

“I think this is an administration that, we’re coming to find out, is one of almost unimaginable incompetence…” – Brit Hume

“Obama is not worse than we thought. Liberals are worse than we thought.” – Christopher Chantrill

It’s fortunate for both our enemies and the Democrats (terms no longer mutually exclusive) that the average American has the attention span of a geriatric squirrel. Otherwise he or she might recall the fall of Saigon in ’75 and the killing fields of Cambodia — fiascoes likewise made possible by the Party of Cut and Run.

That the party of Harry Truman and John Kennedy has degenerated into a home for wayward socialists — Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Hillary Clinton — is tragic; that the American people grant such odious scoundrels sanctuary in the nation’s capitol is bewildering; that they elevated a security risk like Barry Soetoro, AKA Barry Soebarkah, AKA Barack Obama to the highest office in the land is a downright travesty.

The current President of the United States is a man with a past murkier than a cup of Turkish coffee; a man who serves an ideology as red as an oozing tomato; a man who heads the most corrupt and lawless gang of miscreants to come out of Chicago since Prohibition. And he’s either the most incompetent individual to ever rest his bony keister on the Presidential seal, or he’s the most treacherous. And no one seems to care.

“It doesn’t matter a whit what’s going on with the popularity of the president. He may lose the Senate, but he is governing without the Congress. He has got his — he has got his own Constitution that he is operating under. He now regulates the entire healthcare system. And the story that was missed among all the scandals that are supposedly undoing his presidency is the climate change regulations. This is all by regulation. Nothing in legislation. He doesn’t need the Congress, which is going to revolutionize and put control of U.S. energy, which is the U.S. economy, in the Environmental Protection Agency. You want to run America? Don’t run for the presidency. Get yourself appointed head of the E.P.A. It makes Stalin’s five-year plans look like a picnic…

(Is the Obama administration finished?)
