Obama’s new Secretary of State John Kerry has displayed his ignorance for the world to see.
First, he decided to skip Israel on his first trip abroad as Secretary of State, and visit Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Qater instead. Then, we found out that he’s scheduling his second dining experience with Syria’s mass murderer president Bashar al-Assad, who’s brutally killed more than 24,000 Syrian civilians since March 2011.
“Secretary of State John Kerry says the greatest challenge to U.S. foreign policy is not emerging China or Middle East instability. It’s Congress… He called the budget impasse a threat. The State Department has said automatic spending cuts would jeopardize $2.6 billion in aid, security assistance and other international programs. Kerry said legislators need to avoid “senseless cuts.” Otherwise, he said his credibility as a diplomat might be damaged.”
Update: The oh-so-illustrious John Kerry has already made a ridiculous gaffe: “On the eve of his first trip abroad, John Kerry invented the Central Asian country of “Kyrzakhstan.” He was attempting to praise U.S. diplomats’ work in emerging democracies in the region, and said “they support democratic institutions in Kyrzakhstan and Georgia.””
Update #2: John Kerry just keeps ’em coming! He’s now been quoted expressing “his “hope” that “Iran itself will make its choice to move down the path of a diplomatic solution.” In response to Obama’s “diplomacy” policy, Iran has been ramping up its nuclear program, initiating proxy attacks against Israel, and threatening to kidnap Americans. Iran’s government spokesman announced that Obama’s foolish offer of diplomacy toward Iran shows that America has “failed.” And John Kerry is here to make sure that America keeps failing.
Update #3: John Kerry has made a bizarre ‘defense’ of U.S. 1st Amendment freedom of speech during his European tour: “In America, you have a right to be stupid, if you want to be.” John Kerry is trash talking Americans abroad, and the U.S. Secretary of State doesn’t have a right to be stupid– a mere 1 month into the job, he deserves to be impeached.
Not only does Vice President Joe Biden believe that he’s President of the United States while constantly making idiotic gaffes (such as not knowing what century we’re living in, forgetting what state he’s in, and referring to Obama as “Clinton”)— now he says he believes that Americans are “tired of being tired” and are “no longer worried” about the U.S. economy or foreign policy.
After conservative talk radio host Alex Jones debated gun control with liberal CNN reporter Piers Morgan, CNN aired a show in which liberals (including Piers Morgan) laughed and fantasized about the idea of shooting Alex Jones.
There have also been dozens of open threats of violence made against conservatives by oh-so-peace-loving liberals who want “gun control,” but Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is too partisan to take any action against them. Obama’s Department of Homeland Security only targets right-wing American citizens.
What is going on with Democrats?
1. We have VP Joe Biden advising Americans “if you want to protect yourself, get a double barrel shotgun… Buy a shotgun! Buy a shotgun!” with his typical crazy-eyed look.
Biden has even more advice: “So you want to keep people away in an earthquake? Buy some shotgun shells.”
Biden just can’t shut up: “… you want to keep someone away from your house, just fire the shotgun through the door.”
3. Obama is wasting everyone’s time by responding to recent gun violence by “calling on research on the effect of media and video games on gun violence.” Hmmm I wonder… could there be any correlation?? This is a topic that’s already been extensively researched, and the research results are common sense. Furthermore, Obama’s unconstitutional, counterproductive anti-gun policies only serve to make it look like he’s taking meaningful action. All the gratuitous, desensitizing violence in the entertainment industry is a mere footnote to Obama— it’s not a central part of his gun control discussion because Hollywood supports him politically.
Obama supports radical Islam in the Middle East. There is no other way to explain Obama’s bizarre behavior in relation to Libya:
June 2011: “President Obama’s decision to involve U.S. military forces in an unconstitutional, unexplained mission in Libya has left many Americans seeking answers and action from Congress.” Although Obama had previously shaken hands with Libya’s dictator Gaddafi, Obama ensured Gaddafi’s demise and opened a window for radical Islamists to take over Libya.
September 2012: The U.S. Consulate in Libya was destroyed by radical Islamists who killed 4 American diplomats on the 9/11 anniversary— it turns out that Obama’s State Department had credible information that the attack was going to happen 48 hours prior, but didn’t warn the American diplomats they were in danger. During the attack, there was an urgent request for military assistance that the Obama Administration denied. After the attack, Obama and his administration lied to the American people and said the attack occurred because of spontaneous mob reacting to an anti-Islam youtube video, and was not a terrorist attack. Obama also referred to the deaths of the 4 American diplomats as mere “bumps in the road.”
October 2012: A known ringleader of the attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya walks freely in the streets of Libya without fear of arrest. The only person arrested was the creator of the anti-Islam youtube video.
February 2013: Defense Secretary Leon Panetta has now testified that Obama was absent and didn’t communicate with him at all on the night of the Libya terrorist attack— and the next morning, Obama was figuratively absent, leaving “operational details, including knowledge of what resources were available to help the Americans under siege, “up to us.”” While Americans were under attack in Libya, Obama– with his priorities completely out of whack– was making a 1-hour call to Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu “to defuse a controversy about President Obama’s refusal to meet with Netanyahu two weeks later at the U.N. General Assembly.”
As the provisions of Obamacare kick into gear during Obama’s second term, we can see the consequences playing out:
- The IRS has announced that under Obamacare the cheapest health insurance plan available in 2016 for a family will cost $20,000 for the year.
- Obamacare will push 7 million people out of their job-based insurance coverage — nearly twice the previous estimate, according to the latest estimates from the Congressional Budget Office.
- Hospitals and medical professionals can’t function under Obamacare: As an example, a Pennsylvania hospital has announced that it “will stop delivering babies after March 31 because its obstetricians are either leaving or refocusing their practices, and because hospital officials believe they can’t afford it based on projected reimbursements under looming federal health care reforms.”
- Oops: Obama’s “pathway to citizenship” for illegal immigrants could increase the projected cost of Obamacare by $300 billion over the next decade, according to the Republican side of the Senate Budget Committee (which based its calculation on the Congressional Budget Office’s estimate that 7 million illegal immigrants are without insurance and 85% of them have incomes low enough to qualify for Obamacare benefits).
Wow, the Democrats really screwed up on this one– after disregarding the Constitution and passing Obamacare without reading the bill (since Democrats know what’s best for the American people, who can’t take care of themselves– right?), their constituents are confused about why they’re experiencing rising costs and higher insurance premiums because of Obamacare.
Update: Democrats trumpeted Obamacare as bringing an end to “discrimination against Americans with pre-existing conditions.” Well, that didn’t last long! Just as the provisions of Obamacare are starting to take effect in 2013, we’ve been told that “Tens of thousands of Americans who cannot get health insurance because of preexisting medical problems will be blocked from a program designed to help them because funding is running low. Obama administration officials said Friday that the state-based “high-risk pools” set up under the 2010 health-care law will be closed to new applicants as soon as Saturday and no later than March 2, depending on the state.” This is just more evidence that Obamacare is a dismal failure– it was marketed as a miraculous solution to America’s healthcare problems, but was dependent on non-existent funding.
Updated: “Survivors of the November 2009 Fort Hood massacre have created a YouTube video urging the Obama administration to “stop the government charade: the Fort Hood terror attack was not ‘workplace violence.’”
The video was created by the organization The Coalition of the Fort Hood Heroes, which includes 160 victims and family members. The Coalition is also demanding a formal apology, Purple Heart awards for the soldiers and fair compensation for all injuries. In the 14-minute video, survivors point to Hasan’s known al-Qaida connection to bolster their claim the attack was an act of terror. The Muslim Army psychiatrist, who shouted “Allahu akbar” multiple times as he carried out the assault, had corresponded with a top al-Qaida recruiter over a dozen times in the six months leading up to the attack, according to the FBI.”
Updated again: Fort Hood hero Sgt. Kimberly Munley says President Obama broke his promise to the victims: “Betrayed is a good word… Not to the least little bit have the victims been taken care of, in fact they’ve been neglected.”
Who could forget the so-called “Obamaphone lady” who ranted “Everybody in Cleveland, low minorities, got Obama phone. Keep Obama in president, you know? He gave us a phone!”?
It’s now been revealed that “The U.S. government spent about $2.2 billion last year to provide phones to low-income Americans, but a Wall Street Journal review of the program shows that a large number of those who received the phones haven’t proved they are eligible to receive them.” What a combination: government waste AND fraud!
It’s pretty scary to find out that the head of Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is disconnected from reality. In 2009, Janet Napolitano infamously claimed that “the system worked” after an underwear bomber successfully smuggled explosive liquid onto a jet.
Now, Janet Napolitano has been quoted: “I believe the border is secure. I believe the border’s a safe border.” Every American knows this isn’t true– we have approximately 12 million illegal immigrants in the U.S., a U.S. Border Patrol agent was shot dead (and another was wounded) recently, a Texas farmer reported that “a federal law enforcement agent told him to buy a bulletproof vest to use while working in his fields,” etc.
Following Obama’s unwise and untimely Iraq withdrawal, Iraq is reported to be “unraveling” with death squads, bombings, and ethnic tensions. And Afghanistan is such a disaster that Obama quickly broke his campaign promise to pull-out American troops by 2014.
Now, we’ve been informed by VP Joe Biden that Obama “doesn’t want to go” to Iraq and Afghanistan.
After issuing a turkey fryer warning in 2011, Obama’s Department of Homeland Security decided to spend 2012 formulating another oh-so-useful bit of advice using American taxpayer dollars: “Is your workplace getting shot up by a crazed gunman? No problem — just grab a pair of scissors and fight back! That’s some of the helpful advice in a new instructional video from the Department of Homeland Security that was posted on the agency’s Web site just a month after the massacre at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut.”
So, let’s get this straight: Obama wants gun-free zones. And if a criminal (who by definition would break the law) comes in with a gun, Obama wants to reassure the American people that they can fight back with scissors. As for Obama, he’s decided keep his gun-toting 24/7 armed security team for the rest of his life.
