Obama’s deliberate destruction of America becomes more obvious every day. Pearl necklace clutchers will moan, groan, and whine about this. But for fighters like us it is a great opportunity to attack and prevail.
For those of us who have seen Obama as the treacherous boob he is from the beginning we mock the hand-wringers and Henny-Penny’s frantically flapping their feathers headlessly. Why do we mock the Chicken Littles? What do we see that can be in any way described as “good”?
We see that now Barack Obama has two bona fide, self-inflicted, death-bringing wounds, afflicting his scrawny political body. It’s not that there weren’t many Obama scandals and treacheries before. There were. But the news ones have traction none of the others had. It can be argued that the earlier scandals led to the present moment when the latest Obama scandals and treacheries hit home.
The self-inflicted ObamaCare catastrophe continues to bleed Obama dry domestically. The Iran deal treachery threatens to eat through his bones on foreign shores.
In line with all recent polls, today a CNN poll shows Obama personal qualities sliding underwater well above his nose. Obama is being eaten alive by his lies and treacheries:
Only four out of 10 Americans believe President Barack Obama can manage the federal government effectively, according to a new national poll.
And a CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning also indicates that 53% of Americans now believe that Obama is not honest and trustworthy, the first time that a clear majority in CNN polling has felt that way.
According to the survey, conducted last Monday through Wednesday, 40% say the President can manage the government effectively. That 40% figure is down 12 percentage points from June and is the worst score Obama received among the nine personal characteristics tested in the new poll.
“A lot of attention has focused on the President’s numbers on honesty in new polling the past three weeks, but it looks like the recent controversy over Obamacare has had a bigger impact on his status as an effective manager of the government, and that may be what is really driving the drop in Obama’s approval rating this fall,” CNN Polling Director Keating Holland said.
Does being an effective manager count more than honesty?
“Just ask Bill Clinton, whose overall approval ratings remained high during and after the Monica Lewinsky scandal because three-quarters of all Americans thought he could get things done, even though only about one in five said he was honest,” Holland added.
Obama’s woes are not limited to honesty and his managerial skills. Fifty-six percent say he is not a person they admire, and an equal number say he does not agree with them on important issues. Fifty-six percent also say he does not inspire confidence, and 53% don’t view him as a strong and decisive leader. All of those figures are all-time records for Obama in CNN polling.”
Obama’s saggy flaccidity is thus far due to the horror that is ObamaCare. The brain dead DailyKooks will continue to defend ObamaCare but those who want to survive know ObamaCare kills. Increasingly Obama Democrats set to turn on Obama if Healthcare.gov isn’t ready next week and they are taking futile steps to try to live:
“Some Capitol Hill Democrats are preparing to launch broadsides against President Barack Obama if the Affordable Care Act website isn’t fixed by the end of the month.
That will come in the form of more aggressive scrutiny in Republican-led oversight hearings, open advocacy for further delay in the enrollment deadline and individual coverage mandate, and more calls for a staff shake-up in the White House. [snip]
The building frustration — expressed in part Nov. 15 when 39 House Democrats voted for a GOP bill that would have let consumers keep expiring insurance plans — is driven by the fear that Obama’s failed rollout has suddenly left scores of Democrats vulnerable to defeat in the House and Senate. [snip]
Not only are Democrats watching helplessly as visions of taking over the House begin to dissolve, but they increasingly perceive the danger that the Senate could flip into GOP hands and that Obama’s final three years in office could be a total loss for their party’s agenda.“
The brain dead will continue to defend ObamaCare and Obama. But the “strategists” are looking at the numbers and even their Hopium addled brains are perceiving what we perceive:
“Some party strategists say they’re in denial.
And that perceived gap between party spin and facts on the ground is fueling worries that the White House and Democratic higher-ups aren’t taking the possible electoral blowback seriously enough or doing enough to shield their candidates. Democratic contenders in the toughest races are distinctly less convinced that Obamacare will fade as an election-year issue — and they can’t afford to just cross their fingers that things get ironed out or that Republicans revert to political hara-kiri. [snip]
Polls, however, suggest Democrats should be worried. A CBS News poll released Wednesday showed Obama with a 37 percent approval rating, his lowest figure ever in that survey. Another all-time low in the poll: approval of Obamacare, which stood at 31 percent.
Republicans are placing their chips on Obamacare as their defining 2014 issue and putting their money where their mouths are. [snip]
“We’re trying to deny what everyone knows is happening,” said one Democratic pollster who is a veteran of competitive congressional races. “Anybody who is halfway intelligent knows this is a big … problem for us. It’s impossible not to see. We can try to hide our heads in the sand and pretend it’s not a problem, but it is.”
On the home front, an army of termites is chewing on the foundations of ObamaCare – and has already reduced the massive timbers of deception into wobbly toothpicks. Add to this crumbling edifice, the foreign policy treachery that will destroy the last refuge of second term presidencies.
Barack Obama’s treachery against Israel is no surprise to us. In late October 2012 we wrote:
“For Israel, it’s about paying with their lives when Obama is more “flexible” after the election – if he wins. Ohio voters have to keep that in mind.
Israel has been completely surprised by the announcement this weekend that “no preconditions” Obama has agreed to “talks” with Iran. Obama frequently made the assertion that he was keeping Israel not only informed but consulted as to actions that affect Israeli lives. But Israel is once again victimized by Obama treachery. It’s an October surprise of treachery which had better be discussed by Mitt Romney at tomorrow’s foreign policy debate.
As of now, it is clear “nobody owning up to US-Iran talks story“. We expect Mitt Romney will make Obama own up to this latest treachery.
Obama promised Hope and Change in 2008. Only Iran now has Hope – Hope that their nuclear status will Change followed by a charred Israel. Israel is in great danger and we hope that consideration is made by Ohio voters and all Americans as they weigh their vote on the economy and jobs.”
“Nailed it” is the term used for such predictive powers. Mitt Romney failed to do what he needed to do but even if he had there were too many ears not willing to listen. Many of us tried to get the truth out. We knew Obama for the treacherous monster he is and wrote about it when many dared only the politest of words.
In June of 2009 we did not use polite words as we tied Barack Obama and his Jew-baiting to the historic treachery of the Sudetenland:
“Not since the days of the Völkischer Beobachter has the world witnessed the tolerance for Jew baiting in the Big Media gossip sheets and in the American government.
The Jew baiting is taking place in the context of Barack Obama’s speech last week when he parroted Arab theories against Israel, as Israeli Prime Minister Bibi Netanyahu prepares to deliver a response speech on Sunday, and as Iran votes on Friday.
The context for Obama’s speech and this week’s events is that there is, among many Americans and citizens of many nations, the notion that Israel is screwing the world and dreams of peace for their own narrow (self-preservation) interests. This notion, shared by many non-Jews and even many Jews (mostly those safely ensconced in the West Side of Manhattan and other precincts in New York City) is that if only Israel would cooperate and stop its silly self-preservation notions the celestial choirs would sing out and there would be peace in the Middle East region. Folly.
This magic wand philosophy is more properly termed a “Sudentenland” mentality – this time the calls are aimed at the existence of the Jewish state of Israel.”
We now know how those Iranian elections turned out and can see the uncloaked Obama hatred of Israel. The difference is that now even in the West Side precincts of Obama loving Jews the stench of truth, like the acrid smoke of the Auschwitz ovens, can be smelled. Via video: Schumer not exactly thrilled with the Obama-Kerry Iran deal:
NY Senator Chuck Schumer assured pro-Israel Jews, Sunday evening, that Democrats and Republicans are untied to stop President Obama from easing the sanctions on Iran, until Iran destroys its nuclear capabilities and gets rid of all centrifuges and enriched uranium.
Treacherous 2×4 Schumer is getting a graduate course in Treachery by Professor of Treachery Barack Obama. Israel is in grave danger:
Jeffrey Goldberg, always willing to find a friendly mask to place over Obama’s treacherous face, sees the Obama Iran hand clasp for what it is even though Goldberg’s delusions about Obama are still intact:
“U.S. President Barack Obama has had two overarching goals in the Iran crisis. The first was to stop the Iranian regime from gaining possession of a nuclear weapon. The second was to prevent Israel from attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities.
This weekend, the president achieved one of these goals. He boxed-in Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu so comprehensively that it’s unimaginable Israel will strike Iran in the foreseeable future. Netanyahu had his best chance to attack in 2010 and 2011, and he missed it. He came close but was swayed by Obama’s demand that he keep his planes parked. It would be a foolhardy act — one that could turn Israel into a true pariah state, and bring about the collapse of sanctions and possible war in the Middle East — if Israel were to attack Iran now, in the middle of negotiations.”
We know that Netanyahu is in a very difficult position. We don’t think Netanyahu will attack Iran alone. But that does not mean that we believe Netanyahu and Israel will not attack. What Goldberg does not want to admit is that Obama’s treachery does not only threaten Israel. There are others.
There are many aware of Obama’s treachery and the danger Obama poses to international order. Obama loves chaos. Just as the fools that voted for Obama and ObamaCare are learning not to trust Obama but to oppose Obama – the world at large, threatened by Obama is learning how treacherous Obama is and the danger Obama poses:
“World Doubts Obama Will Enforce Red Line on Iran
World leaders say President Obama’s credibility to enforce the deadline has been badly damaged.
The interim nuclear deal struck on Sunday morning avoids outright confrontation with Iran for six months, but foreign leaders and international experts warned that the gamble over reaching a final deal could substantially raise the risk of open conflict.
Over 200 officials, lawmakers, and experts from more than 50 countries were meeting at the Halifax International Security Forum as news broke over the weekend, many suggested that President Obama’s credibility to stop Iran from going nuclear after the deadline if no final deal is reached had been badly damaged by his wavering red lines on Syria. [snip]
If there’s no final deal, the prospects of war will rise and a weakened Obama administration will be less able to prevent it.
“My worry is not over the next six months,” said Dov Zakheim, former undersecretary of Defense in the Bush administration. “The problem to me is that the president has once again laid out another red line and his track record with red lines is ambiguous. The red line this time is the six months.”
“What happens if nothing more is achieved after the six month period or Iran cheats and nobody does anything about it? If either of those things happen, I believe the Israelis will attack,” he said. [snip]
Obama previously set a red line regarding Syria, warning that the use of chemical weapons by the Assad regime would trigger an international response. Following the Aug. 21 chemical weapons attack there that killed over 1,400 Syrians, Obama decided to launch limited military strikes against Syria and then reversed himself when Syria agreed to give up its chemical weapons capabilities.
Several foreign officials said that the Syrian red line episode had eroded the Obama administration’s credibility around the world, which raises questions over promises made about Iran.
“When you draw red lines and then they are crossed and you don’t do anything about it, two things happen: Your enemies become emboldened and your allies become less sure,” said British Member of Parliament Liam Fox, a former Secretary of State for Defence. “That’s been the problem.”
Moshe Ya’alon, Israel’s Minister of Defense, said America’s actions throughout the Arab Spring, including Obama’s failure to enforce his Syria red line, have created the impression that the West is not willing or able to confront Iran and its Shiite Muslim allies, who are bent on expanding their regional influence and pursuing a nuclear capability despite any interim deal.
“According to the Sunni Arab camp, the West is in retreat… According to the Iranian perspective, the West is the Great Satan America. In this regard, the West should be defeated, according to the Iranian ideology,” he said. “Regarding the deal, they feel like there is weakness on behalf of the West which might be exploited by them to defeat the West.”“
During Obama’s Syria buffoonery the claim he made was that he did not draw the red line, that the world drew the red line when it banned chemical weapons. But with the Iran deal Obama betrays international law:
“Iran is correct, the agreement is a de facto recognition of its “right” to enrich uranium.
Protests by the administration – Secretary of State John Kerry in particular – that the deal does not recognize a “right” of Iran to enrich uranium are Obamacare-style lies, false for what they leave out.
The deal, as Kerry contends, does not explicitly recognize a “right.” But it clearly does so implicitly. [snip]
Final deal allows enrichment. Just a matter of how much.
Here’s why this is so incredibly significant.
Allowing Iran to enrich is contrary to UN resolutions and U.S. policy. It’s a big concession, even before the most serious talks have started. It gets us to the table – by giving away the chair.
What this means is that from now on – forever – the United States and the UN will be forced to try to keep tabs on an enrichment program and ensure that Iran does not achieve the “breakout” point it’s already so close to.
How do you do that? You can’t. For Iran to be deprived on a nuclear weapon, it has to be deprived of the materials and processes to make one. The Iranians know that with an enrichment program in place, they’ll eventually, one way or another, get nuclear-grade material.“
Israel knows all this. Israel also knows that perhaps the only way to destroy the Hitler bunkers of nuclear materials is to use tactical nuclear weapons. So Israel is restrained. Israel realizes it cannot attack alone. But Israel is not alone. Barack Obama and the United States have abandoned Israel. But there is another:
“Iran nuclear deal: Saudi Arabia warns it will strike out on its own Saudi Arabia claims they were kept in the dark by Western allies over Iran nuclear deal and says it will strike out on its own
A senior advisor to the Saudi royal family has accused its Western allies of deceiving the oil rich kingdom in striking the nuclear accord with Iran and said Riyadh would follow an independent foreign policy.
Nawaf Obaid told a think tank meeting in London that Saudi Arabia was determined to pursue its own foreign and policy goals. Having in the past been reactive to events, the leading Sunni Muslim nation was determined to be pro-active in future.
Mr Obaid said that while Saudi Arabia knew that the US was talking directly to Iran through a channel in the Gulf state of Oman, Washington had not directly briefed its ally.
“We were lied to, things were hidden from us,” he said.”
Saudi Arabia once was a military weakling. No longer:
“The RSAF has developed from a largely defensive military force into one with an advanced offensive capability. The RSAF maintains the third largest fleet of F-15s after the USAF and the JASDF.”
The Saudi Air Force and the Israeli Air Defense forces constitute sufficient air power to attack Iran successfully. The economics of Iranian retaliation against Israel and oil rich Saudi Arabia would force the European powers and the United States to move from collaboration with Iran to protection of Israel and Saudi Arabia. Of course this is just a fantasy on our part, right?:
“Officals: Israelis in secret trip to inspect Saudi bases. Could be used as staging ground for strikes against Iran
TEL AVIV — Israeli personnel in recent days were in Saudi Arabia to inspect bases that could be used as a staging ground to launch attacks against Iran, according to informed Egyptian intelligence officials.
The officials said Israel, Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan and other Arab and Persian Gulf countries have been discussing the next steps toward possible strikes on Iran’s nuclear sites.
The officials said the U.S. passed strong messages to Israel and the Saudis that the Americans control radar capabilities over the skies near Iran and that no strike should be launched without permission from the Obama administration.
It was unclear whether the purported visit to Saudi Arabia by Israeli military and intelligence officials signals any real preparation for a strike or if the trip was meant to keep pressure on the West amid Israeli fears about the current deal with Tehran.
The trip came prior to the announcement today of the deal with Western powers that aims to halt key parts of Iran’s nuclear program in exchange for sanctions relief.
At a cabinet meeting in Jerusalem today, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu slammed what he called a “bad” and “dangerous” deal, while affirming that Israel will not allow Iran to go nuclear.
“Israel is not obligated by this agreement,” Netanyahu said. “I want to make clear we will not allow Iran to obtain military nuclear capability.”
Saudi Arabia united with it’s most hated enemy? Impossible right? Right?
As Obama’s ObamaCare crumbles at home, Obama’s treacheries abroad unite old enemies. That’s good news.
