America’s enemies can count Obama as a friend. We already knew that Obama supports Egypt’s Muslim Brotherhood President Morsi (who wants to destroy Israel and the U.S.), invited Iranian diplomats to a 4th of July hot dog celebration, hung a Mao Zedong ornament on the White House Christmas tree, and received campaign endorsements from 3 dictators who hate America and its way of life.
So it’s probably unsurprising that Obama rolled out the welcome mat for a Chinese general who threatened nuclear war against America: “A Chinese general who once threatened to use nuclear weapons against hundreds of U.S. cities will visit the Pentagon this week as part of a U.S.-China military exchange program. Maj. Gen. Zhu Chenghu, who is head of China’s National Defense University, will take part in a “familiarization exchange”… Zhu is best known for inflammatory comments made to two foreign news reporters in 2005 when he said China would use nuclear weapons against the United States in any conflict over Taiwan.”
After encouraging the Muslim Brotherhood take-over of Egypt, embracing Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian President Morsi, and sending $1 billion of American taxpayer dollars as “foreign aid” to the Muslim Brotherhood Egyptian government, it’s readily apparent that Obama has sacrificed both American and Israeli national security. Morsi has been meeting with Iran’s genocidal President Ahmadinejad, has expressed his desire to “destroy the Jews and their supporters,” and now: “Mohammed Morsi described Jews as ‘descendants of apes and pigs’. The Muslim Brotherhood leader is also reported to have asked Egyptians to ‘nurse our children and our grandchildren on hatred’.” Isn’t it amazing that America is going into a downward spiral of debt slavery so that Obama can spend American taxpayer dollars to prop up Morsi’s destructive Egyptian regime?
Bob Woodward, who famously reported the Watergate scandal that led to the resignation of Richard Nixon, is continuing to report that Obama is to blame for the implementation of the sequester— he says that the sequester is “the “brain child” of the White House” and “Obama personally approved of the plan.” The White House has “pushed back” against Bob Woodward on Twitter– a move that Obama already regrets.
Now, Bob Woodward’s pride is taking front center stage, and he’s “ripped into President Barack Obama… for a decision not to deploy an aircraft carrier to the Persian Gulf because of budget concerns. “Can you imagine Ronald Reagan sitting there and saying, ‘Oh, by the way, I can’t do this because of some budget document?'” Woodward said. “Or George W. Bush saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to invade Iraq because I can’t get the aircraft carriers I need?'” Or even Bill Clinton saying, ‘You know, I’m not going to attack Saddam Hussein’s intelligence headquarters,’ … because of some budget document?”… “Under the Constitution, the President is commander-in-chief and employs the force. And so we now have the President going out because of this piece of paper and this agreement. ‘I can’t do what I need to do to protect the country,'” Woodward said. “That’s a kind of madness that I haven’t seen in a long time,” he said.”
Update: Wow, this really is war! Bob Woodward told CNN that a “very senior person” at the White House warned him in an email that he would “regret doing this.”
Update #2: Fox News made a very interesting point about Woodward’s response: “There was something very quaint about Bob Woodward’s concern about the attacks he’s been receiving from the Obama White House. Here’s what Woodward told Politico: “I think if Obama himself saw the way they’re dealing with some of this, he would say, ‘Whoa, we don’t tell any reporter ‘you’re going to regret challenging us.’ ” Woodward assumes that if only President Obama knew about the nastygrams and threats and attacks from his team the president would step in and rein in his over-eager staffers. If only Obama knew! Woodward, once celebrated by Democrats for yanking down Richard Nixon’s imperial presidency, now seems puzzled by the doings of the current and even more imperial Obama presidency.” Obama is responsible for his own administration, but Woodward– perhaps out of fear of being labeled a racist for criticizing ‘the first African-American President’?– continues to make excuses for Obama, and is reluctant to place blame on Obama directly. Every action of the Obama Administration is attributable to Obama directly– he is directly responsible for those to whom he delegates authority, and he’s responsible for knowing what’s going on: this is a legal principle.
Update #3: It’s now been revealed that “A day after Woodward’s claim that a senior White House official had told him he would “regret” writing a column criticizing President Obama’s stance on the sequester, Lanny Davis, a longtime close advisor to President Bill Clinton, told WMAL’s Mornings on the Mall Thursday he had received similar threats for newspaper columns he had written about Obama in the Washington Times.”
Davis told WMAL that his editor, John Solomon, “received a phone call from a senior Obama White House official who didn’t like some of my columns, even though I’m a supporter of Obama. I couldn’t imagine why this call was made.” Davis says the Obama aide told Solomon, “that if he continued to run my columns, he would lose, or his reporters would lose their White House credentials.”… “I called three senior people at the White House, and I said, ‘I want this person to be told this can never happen again, and it’s inappropriate.’ I got a call back from someone who was in the White House saying it will never happen again.””
Obama’s thuggery is completely out of control. Journalist Ron Fournier has now come forward with the same story:
Fournier says: “I had angered the White House, particularly a senior White House official who I am unable to identify because I promised the person anonymity… The official angered by my Woodward tweet sent me an indignant e-mail. “What’s next, a Nazi analogy?” the official wrote, chastising me for spreading “bull**** like that” I was not offended by the note, mild in comparison to past exchanges with this official. But it was the last straw in a relationship that had deteriorated… I received several e-mails and telephone calls from this White House official filled with vulgarity, abusive language, and virtually the same phrase that Politico characterized as a veiled threat.”
Obama’s strategy is beyond the obvious:
- Attempt to de-legitimize and silence news organizations (such as Fox News) that hold Obama accountable for his actions and broadcast both supporting and opposing viewpoints on the Obama Administration.
- Monitor journalists to ensure they are in line with Obama’s agenda.
- Refuse to answer journalists’ questions, and pre-package journalists’ questions.
- Get angry at local reporters who ask tough questions.
- Lanny Davis and Bob Woodward are proof that Obama gets angry at national reporters who ask tough questions too, even if they’re liberal!
Update: Obama is spamming everyone— not just Republicans.
The Obama Administration’s corruption is staggering. After overlooking the misuse of stimulus funds for Obama’s political cronies and the nomination of political donors for influential public positions (including John Kerry), even MSNBC is stunned: “MSNBC’s Chuck Todd criticized Monday the new fundraising efforts of President Obama’s dark money group, Organizing for Action, calling a scheme for high donors to meet regularly with Obama “the definition of selling access.” Todd was describing the quarterly meetings that will be enjoyed by OFA’s $500,000 donors.” Disturbingly, “Giving or raising $500,000 or more puts donors on a national advisory board for Mr. Obama’s group and the privilege of attending quarterly meetings with the president, along with other meetings at the White House.”
Hilariously, “the organization’s leadership has been courting corporate donors” and Chuck Todd has expressed confusion over the fact that Obama (while campaigning) said he believed that “money has a strangle hold over the entire political system.”
And it gets funnier: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney ran away from the podium while reporters were still questioning him about this issue, after failing “to defend this arrangement” and “implausibly stating that the Obama group is somehow not related to Obama.”
Forget the U.S. Constitution: Obama says, “Where Congress is not willing to act, we’re going to go ahead and do it ourselves.”
Update: “President Barack Obama is tired of waiting for Congress to move on legislation to reduce carbon emissions, and his administration is poised to move forward on actions to do just that—including a move that will effectively eliminate the possibility of any new coal plant opening in the United States, experts say.” So, not only is Obama once again acting unilaterally and trashing the separation of powers– but he’s also following through on his promise to destroy the coal industry.
Strange Update: Does Obama have a split personality disorder too? America is incredulous now that he’s been taped saying this: “You know, the one thing about being president is, after four years, you get pretty humble… You realize all the mistakes you made. But you also realize you can’t do things by yourself. That’s not how our system works. You’ve got to have the help and the goodwill of Congress.” Right…
“Robert Gibbs, President Barack Obama’s former press secretary, says that he was once instructed by the White House not to acknowledge the administration’s use of drones. “When I went through the process of becoming press secretary, one of the first things they told me was, you’re not even to acknowledge the drone program,” Gibbs said on MSNBC’s “Up With Chris Hayes” on Sunday. “You’re not even to discuss that it exists.””
Gibbs acknowledged the obvious: “I think what the president has seen is, our denial of the existence of the program when it’s obviously happening undermines people’s confidence overall in the decisions that their government makes.”
Update: Wait, why isn’t Nancy Pelosi speaking out about this? A few years ago, the CIA confirmed that Pelosi lied to the media when she claimed the Bush Administration didn’t brief her about enhanced interrogation techniques used against al-Qaeda prisoners. Now, she would be able to legitimately claim that the Obama Administration didn’t brief her about drone strikes on al-Qaeda terrorists– but being the two-faced scumbag politician that she is, Pelosi is silent.
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.
The mainstream media still loves Obama, although they can’t hide their frustration about his lack of transparency. Journalists are “expressing frustration over… lack of access this weekend to President Obama, who was on a golfing vacation in Florida.” This statement was released:
“Speaking on behalf of the White House Correspondents Association, I can say a broad cross section of our members from print, radio, online and TV have today expressed extreme frustration to me about having absolutely no access to the President of the United States this entire weekend… There is a very simple but important principle we will continue to fight for today and in the days ahead: transparency.”
Obama’s self-proclaimed “most transparent administration in history” (a laughable claim) needs to hide the fact that Obama is taking excessive luxurious vacations.
Update: Obama’s golfing vacation in Florida with Tiger Woods this past weekend cost American taxpayers a whopping $989,207.
Update: Gas prices in 2013 could hit record highs– “so far this year, prices are surging sooner and faster than ever before.”
