“No matter how cynical you become, it’s never enough to keep up” – Lily Tomlin

In the “Age of Obama” being cynical has become the norm and truly it is never enough to keep up. While he has no strategy in dealing with the newly formed “caliphate” in the ME, that does not stop BO from three fundraisers and a wedding this weekend. Nothing like an extended paycayshun to clear the mind (it’s a sure bet a few rounds of golf will fit in quite nicely too). After four years of reports of the growing threat he still doesn’t know what to do? “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse,” he said. “We don’t have a strategy yet.”   After this from his own State Dept;

“ISIS is al Qaeda,” McGurk said. “It’s al Qaeda and it’s a global jihadist organization. That’s where the thousands of foreign fighters coming into Syria and Iraq, they’re drawn to the global jihad. ISIS is reaching for the mantle of the global jihad. It is in competition with the leader of al Qaeda in Pakistan for that mantle. That’s what its leader Abu al-Baghdadi — that’s his goal. This is an extremely serious threat to us. Extremely serious threat to the region and something we have to begin to confront with our partners in the region.”

When he’s off teleprompter the truth comes out, he’s as dumb as the day is long. Words have meaning and, they have power. He plays head games with words, doing his best to change the meaning, and sending his hacks out to tell us we didn’t understand what he said, what he really meant, and was lost in translation by the media. Never mind he is on video saying exactly what was reported “we don’t have a strategy”.  All he has done is sign sweeping orders that undermine our way of life and keep us in economic doldrums. What he calls “fair”. We’re the ones with the J-VEE team. It’s very much like a group of high school sophomores squealing with delight by being voted in as class president and co. They’re not as bright as they think nor are we as stupid as they think.

For your weekend entertainment. US media will be sponsoring a new reality show, Three Fundraisers and a MSNBC Wedding, starring Buh-rock and MO Obama with a supporting cast of thousands, filmed in very wide screen. Trailer to pique interest is at the following link. Note the widescreen shots.

Walking with MO is one of the co-stars. We lovingly think of her as Val-J. Does it get any better?

Why, yes it does. Buh-rock will find some way to bypass Congress to enact the UN Climate Change rules. This is a bigger threat to national security than Islamic crazies cutting off heads and committing genocide.

In preparation for this agreement, to be signed at a United Nations summit meeting in 2015 in Paris, the negotiators are meeting with diplomats from other countries to broker a deal to commit some of the world’s largest economies to enact laws to reduce their carbon pollution. But under the Constitution, a president may enter into a legally binding treaty only if it is approved by a two-thirds majority of the Senate.

To sidestep that requirement, President Obama’s climate negotiators are devising what they call a “politically binding” deal that would “name and shame” countries into cutting their emissions. The deal is likely to face strong objections from Republicans on Capitol Hill and from poor countries around the world, but negotiators say it may be the only realistic path. […]

When not pontificating on the climate our protagonist will be reminding us that we are a bunch of racists who do not understand what “fair” actually means. It isn’t “fair” of us to demand the southern border be secured. There are no bad guys trying to cross it, just lovely women and children who need our help. Of course the US media will be reporting on our shameful reactions to the rainbow of diversity being shoved down our throats by executive actions. Not to mention our alarm at knowing jihadists can re-enter the country because they have passports. Or, enter at our southern border as reported by Judicial Watch of an imminent threat

Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued.  Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.

Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas.

Don’t expect the media to report any of this any time soon. It doesn’t support the “narrative” and might spoil the “image” of Buh-rock. The talking heads are out in full force telling us Al Qaeda/ISIL (Islamic State in the Levant)can’t reach us and we’re just being paranoid. While Buh-rock will spend hours discussing the existential meaning of life, he does nothing to protect life itself.

As “David Kahane” wrote in Rules for Radical Conservatives:

And look at the results: we’ve gotten an entire generation of journalists to frame every issue through the structuralist lens of race, class, ethnicity and gender (which is what we used to call sex before sex became so commonplace that it’s more titillating to think about having gender these days than it is to think about having sex).  It doesn’t matter what the news event: once past the actual report of the event, the press can be counted on now to move the story to the next level, to interpret it in the media’s own alternative universe of bias, discrimination, glass ceilings and unicorns.

The show will go on for another two years, cancellation is not an option.

 

 UPDATE:  Breitbart Texas has exclusively obtained a leaked document warning federal agents about an ISIS-related terrorism threat across the entire US-Mexico border. Though the document focuses on the Texas-Mexico border, Breitbart Texas has confirmed that federal agents across the entire US-Mexico border have received the ISIS terror warning.

  1. President Obama has angered wealthy jet-setting New Yorkers with his travel plans this weekend because much of New York’s airspace will be shut down during his visit to the state.
    The timing of the President’s trip to New York’s Westchester County today for a series of weekend fundraisers could not have come at a worst time because it will be during the Labor Day weekend.
    According to CBS, the Federal Aviation Administration will put the skies over New York City on lock down until Saturday.

    The no-fly zone will last from Friday afternoon and all day Saturday

  2. ‘Barney Fife is in charge’: Obama under fire for ‘we don’t have a strategy’ gaffe on ISIS as he’s accused of having ‘head buried in hole on first green’
    •Texas congressman compares Obama to bumbling deputy Barney Fife from ‘The Andy Griffith Show’
    •Pentagon insider says Joint Chiefs of Staff are ‘seeing red’ and ‘spitting nails’ following Obama’s candid admission
    •Generals are ‘losing confidence in their mission,’ said a former senior aide to a retired defense secretary
    •House Intel Committee Chairman Mike Rogers said Obama’s performance was ‘really shocking given the severity of the threat’
    •White House press secretary said the administration isn’t concerned about the comment, but about the ‘way it was being reported’

  3. That vision thingy…there is no “there” there

    When Barack Obama campaigned for the White House in 2008, that hardly seemed like his problem. Obama would take in the whole sweep of American history in his speeches to suggest that his candidacy was its culmination. His heavy-handed propaganda​—​from the Greek columns to Shepard Fairey’s “Hope” poster​—​suggested a man with a vision surplus.

    In the sixth year of his presidency, it is clear that Obama does not have much of a vision at all.[snip]

    In the final analysis, Obama’s vision seems to have been for Barack Obama to be in the White House, which he accomplished more than five years ago. No wonder he has so much time to go golfing these days.

  4. Throughout his presidency, he has excelled at explaining what the United States cannot do and cannot afford, and his remarks Thursday were no exception. “Ukraine is not a member of NATO,” he said. “We don’t have those treaty obligations with Ukraine.” If Iraq doesn’t form an acceptable government, it’s “unrealistic” to think the United States can defeat the Islamic
    State.
    It’s time Mr. Obama started emphasizing what the United States can do instead of what it cannot.

  5. They leave, ACLU and the courts drag them back….

    As part of a legal settlement that will allow some illegal immigrants who deported themselves from Southern California to return to the United States, the federal government has agreed to advertise the settlement on various Mexican and Spanish-language media outlets.

    The ACLU filed a class-action lawsuit last year on behalf of eleven illegal immigrants who deported themselves. The settlement reached on Wednesday will only cover “longtime California residents with relatives who are U.S. citizens and… young migrants whose parents brought them into the country illegally” who deported themselves between 2009 and 2013. An ACLU official has indicated that there were nearly 250,000 people who were “deported voluntarily from Southern California between 2009 and 2013” and estimated to the Los Angeles Times that the “number of repatriations could reach into the hundreds or thousands.”

  6. That is soooo special…tie up traffic for everyone to partay down!

    Kass and Wagner, dubbed by Vogue the political “‘It-couple’ of the year,” are getting married at Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Pocantico Hills, N.Y. Kass is the Obama family’s personal chef and the president’s senior policy adviser for nutrition policy. He is also the executive director of “Let’s Move.” Wagner hosts the MSNBC weekday program “Now with Alex Wagner.”

    Both Barack and Michelle Obama are attending the wedding according to a Politico source.

  7. Alarms sounding….Buh-rock fluffs it off….pay no attention to the “messy”, it will go away because Buh-rock is ignoring it. Does he really think he is being reassuring?

    We’re “pretty safe”! Well, Obama certainly is – he has the Secret Service and I guess there is no intel suggesting ISIS has managed to plant IEDs on golf carts. Send in the clowns? We have to wake them up first.

    The WaPo editors are exhorting Obama to talk to his own team, including his Secretary of State and Attorney General:

    Similarly, his senior advisers uniformly have warned of the unprecedented threat to America and Americans represented by Islamic extremists in Syria and Iraq. But Mr. Obama didn’t seem to agree. “Now, ISIL [the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant] poses an immediate threat to the people of Iraq and to people throughout the region,” he said. “My priority at this point is to make sure that the gains that ISIL made in Iraq are rolled back.” Contrast that ambition with this vow from Secretary of State John F. Kerry: “And make no mistake: We will continue to confront ISIL wherever it tries to spread its despicable hatred. The world must know that the United States of America will never back down in the face of such evil.”

    The discrepancies raise the question of whether Mr. Obama controls his own administration, but that’s not the most disturbing element. His advisers are only stating the obvious: Russia has invaded Ukraine. The Islamic State and the Americans it is training are a danger to the United States. When Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. says the threat they pose is “in some ways . . . more frightening than anything I think I’ve seen as attorney general,” it’s not because he is a warmonger or an alarmist. He’s describing the world as he sees it

  8. Don’t you find it a bit unusual…Val-J born in Iran (lived there during her formative years), MO associating with Mrs. Farrakhan in her early days in Chicago, BO adopted by a Muslim, living in Indonesia attending a madrassa? All into appeasement of Iran….

    Obama’s “we-don’t-have-a-strategy” gaffe was so egregious as to distract attention from the fact that he does indeed have a strategy, which has blown up in his face. His strategy is accommodation with Iran at all costs. As I wrote earlier this month, our ISIS problem derives from our Iran problem: Bashar Assad’s ethnic cleansing, which has displaced 4 million Syrians internally and driven 3 million out of the country, was possible because of Iranian backing. The refugee flood in Iraq and Syria gives ISIS an unlimited pool of recruits. Iraqi Sunni support for ISIS, including the participation of some of Saddam Hussein’s best officers, is a response to Iran’s de facto takeover of Iraq.

    The Sunni see what Buh-rock is doing, they aren’t stupid either….

    in that region, air power could drastically weaken ISIS, if not quite eradicate it. It certainly could contain its advances (as fewer than 100 American sorties already have in northern Iraq). But the underlying problem will remain: Iran’s depredations have triggered an economic and demographic catastrophe in the region, and that catastrophe has created the snowball effect we call ISIS.

    • Waiting for 2012

      With that circle motif on the belt, she almost literally is wearing a boob belt.

      Wee Won #2 certainly is growing up (I haven’t been following these clowns for quite a while, so it seems so to me.)

  10. Waiting for 2012

    Lynn II-I just saw your post about your new baby! Congratulations! She will now have a wonderful future, thanks to you. What a cutie-ie she is! We need more pics!

    • Two months old now…loved to bits… Thank you!

  11. Waiting for 2012

    “Cutie-pie”, sorry! 🙂

  12. this warmed my heart ….

    Many local businesses in Ferguson were vandalized, looted, and even set on fire as demonstrators took to the streets to protest the shooting. Sadly, innocent business owners have been left to foot the bills. This is where the St. Louis Tea Party realized they could help.

    The group spread the word of the “BUYcott” event on Facebook, hoping to get at least 20 people to show up and spend their hard-earned money at local Ferguson businesses on August 21. They apparently ended up with a group of about 40 “(mostly) white people” — and something amazing happened.
