Political fallout from sequestration continues…

Obama ushered in his second term by throwing U.S. national security over the fiscal cliff.

Afterward, the Obama Administration failed to provide any evidence that the federal government has been damaged by the sequester. In fact, the federal government was so capable of handling the required “budget cuts” that the Obama Administration worried the American people would favor additional budget cuts to rein in out-of-control government spending.  In order to advance its agenda, the Obama Administration instructed federal agencies “to make sure the cuts are as painful as President Obama promised they would be.”

Obama was so intent on deceiving the American people that his administration “overreached three times… attempting to illustrate the negative impact of the sequester spending cuts in the short term, giving fodder to those seeking to play down the impact of the cuts. On Monday, Homeland Security Secretary Janet Napolitano told reporters that major airports had seen lines ballooning to 150-200 percent their normal size. The Transportation Security Administration later clarified that it was not yet seeing longer-than-normal checkpoint lines… On Friday, meanwhile, President Obama said that janitors at the U.S. Capitol would receive a pay cut due to the sequester cuts. Carlos Elias, the superintendent of the U.S. Capitol building and the Capitol Visitors Center, quickly emailed employees to say “This is NOT TRUE,” adding that “The pay and benefits of EACH of our employees WILL NOT be impacted.”… The prior Sunday, Education Secretary Arne Duncan had said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that “There are literally teachers now who are getting pink slips, who are getting notices that they can’t come back this fall.” He later acknowledged that he “misspoke” after fact checkers found no evidence for the claim.”

There have been so many absurdities coming from the Obama Administration after the sequester that it’s difficult to keep count:

John Kerry is a disgrace.

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.

But now we realize that John Kerry isn’t just immoral and insulting to our allies– he’s also ignorant of world affairs:

“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.”

Actually, John Kerry never had any credibility as a diplomat.

… which is why Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov didn’t bother to return John Kerry’s phone call for 6 DAYS.

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.

VP Joe Biden: Comedian.

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.

Obama was “absent” during the Libya terrorist attack

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.”

Obama supports radical Islam in the Middle East

We already know that Obama encouraged the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, embraced Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Morsi, and sent $1 billion of American taxpayer dollars as “foreign aid” to the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian government. We also know that Obama attacked Libya and opened a window for radical Islamists to take over the country— which led to the brutal terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate in Libya by “militia associated with Al Qaeda.” Some of those same participants subsequently killed American hostages in Algeria.

Recently, Obama nominated an anti-Israel pro-terrorist Secretary of Defense who was endorsed by Iran’s foreign ministry. VP Joe Biden also raised the possibility of direct U.S.-Iran talks, despite the fact that the U.S. has never before agreed to one-on-one talks with Iran’s genocidal and illegitimate regime.  Iran is extending its influence in the Middle East, due to Obama’s failed foreign policy– Ahmadinejad recently made the first visit to Egypt by an Iranian president since Tehran’s 1979 Islamic revolution. To top it off, Iran-supported Syria is getting a visit from Obama’s new Secretary of State John Kerry— where Syria’s mass murderer president Bashar al-Assad will dine with John Kerry “again” after killing more than 24,000 Syrian civilians.

Frighteningly, Secretary of State John Kerry opened his confirmation hearing by saying “that he will do his best to implement “President Obama’s vision for the world”.”

Obama insults our ally Israel again and again

It’s easy to lose count of how many times Obama has insulted Israel (America’s #1 ally in the Middle East) and its Prime Minister Netanyahu.  Here are only the latest stories:

Update: “John Kerry will skip Israel as part of his first trip abroad as secretary of State, the Obama administration announced Tuesday… Kerry will instead visit nine nations in Europe and the Middle East – Great Britain, Germany, France, Italy, Turkey, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Abu Dhabi and Qatar.”

Obama-supporter Al Gore sells his cable TV company to Al Jazeera because it shares his “point of view”

The pro-Obama “pro-environment” Al Gore has shown his true colors: When Glenn Beck’s right-wing news outlet The Blaze tried to buy Gore’s left-wing news outlet Current TV, “Current TV refused The Blaze’s offer because “the legacy of who the network goes to is important to us and we are sensitive to networks not aligned with our point of view.”  After Glenn Beck’s offer was rejected, Current TV  was sold to Al Jazeera for $500 million.

Al Jazeera hates America and Israel, and spouts radical Islamic propaganda— but Democrat Obama-supporter Al Gore believes that it’s Al Jazeera (not Glenn Beck) that shares his “point of view.”  The icing on the cake of this deal: it turns out that Al Jazeera is funded by Middle East oil profits, making Al Gore the world’s biggest hypocrite.

Syria loads chemical weapons into bombs, and there’s nothing we can do about it.

According to the Obama Administration, there’s nothing that the U.S. can do about the Syrian government using chemical weapons— which constitutes an international war crime– against civilians.  However, under the Obama Administration’s “logic,” Libya could be attacked despite the fact that it posed no threat to U.S. national security and 100 U.S. troops could randomly be sent to Uganda.

Morsi is Egypt’s “new pharaoh,” and Obama is his #1 fan from the West.

The “Arab Spring” soon revealed itself to be the “Arab Winter” under Obama’s failed foreign policy.  As we recall: Obama openly supported Morsi by encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, and then invited the virulently anti-Semitic Morsi (the Muslim Brotherhood’s new leader of Egypt) to meet with him.  Now, Morsi has seized “absolute power” in Egypt and is being dubbed the “new pharaoh” by rioters. But Egyptians aren’t the only ones who now live in a more dangerous world: some believe that Egypt has become “the new Iran” constituting a huge threat to both U.S. and Israeli national security.

Obama gets re-elected: The world gets a step closer to World War III

1 week after Obama got re-elected, Israel was attacked by hundreds of rockets from Gaza. There is a report that at least one rocket was fired from Egypt into Israel– Egypt, which Obama helped turn from a relatively pro-U.S. regime that supported Israel’s efforts to defeat Palestinian terrorists into a Muslim Brotherhood radical Islamist regime that now attacks Israel in an act of war.  The Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi has even visited Gaza to condemn Israel for defending its borders from these terrorists’ rocket attacks.

We have learned that Iran now “has finished installing nearly 3,000 nuclear-fuel production machines at its underground military facility near the holy city of Qom, providing Tehran the capability to double its production of medium-enriched uranium in the coming months.” So this is the result of Obama’s “diplomacy” and “tough” economic sanctions on Iran: IRAN CONTINUES TO GET CLOSER TO ACQUIRING NUCLEAR WEAPONS.  And, how predictable: Palestinian terrorists are currently firing Iranian-made missiles into Israel. If Iran acquires nuclear weapons: you can bet that terrorists around the world will acquire them too.

This photo from Drudge Report says it all:

The only thing between total destruction and the Jewish people– an ancient, long-persecuted religion and culture (which has been the object of repeated attempts at genocide)– is modern military technology: the “Iron Dome,” a device that intercepts the terrorists’ missiles in mid-air.
