Why are we getting so worked up about the Syrian red line?



Barry
August 20 2012

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized,” the president said a year ago last week. “That would change my calculus. That would change my equation.”







Currently the death toll in Syria is around 100,000 killed by various means other than by chemical weapons. 1429 at last count were killed by chemical weapons. So 100,000 vs 1429. Sometimes you have to put your foot down... according to Barry. I was under the firm belief... when your dead your dead!
BTW... Barry's track record in Egypt and Libya doesn't exactly inspire confidence. 
Weren't we told with 100% certainty Benghazi was the result of a video?
Was that not total bullshit?


I’m no fan of Assad but just what is a Syrian rebel? One of these so-called rebels (Al-Qaeda affiliates) cut a priest's head off about a month ago and Beck had a video of one gutting his enemy and eating his heart and liver.


Muslims killing Muslims. 
I could care less and we should stay the hell out of it!

Tomorrows news today:

FOX, CBS, ABC, NBC... 6 months after... (if) we rescue Syria.



GUARANTEED etched in stone!!!!

Barry's way out. 
He'll put it to the "do nothing" Congress and they'll vote no then blame them claiming his hands are tied.


But the real story is this:


 The internet and news shows claim Barry "boxed himself in" on the Syrian situation with his bravado red line rhetoric. "He painted himself into a corner" they say. In other words he made a promise he may not keep. Another report said if he doesn't act it will devastate is credibility. What credibility? The only promise he has ever kept was "transforming America" into what it is today. 

So what's the big deal? The road less traveled as he likes to call it is paved with broken promises and flat out lies. Christ... he's noted for it!

These are a few examples. 


1. Promise to Cut Deficit in Half during first term. 

Which means we should have been around $5.3 trillion. Instead we were at $16.1 trillion. More than 3 times more!


2.  “If we have not gotten our troops out by the time I am president, it is the first thing I will do. I will get our troops home, we will end this war. You can take that to the bank.”

I did and the check bounced.


3.  Promises to close Guantanamo Bay. 
Still open last time I checked. 


4.  “If you like the healthcare plan and the doctor you have, you can keep it.”
Not so much.

5.  "The only involvement I had with Acorn was doing some stuff with the justice department."

They're joined at the hip.


6.  “My father served in World War II”

 His father was born 6-19-1936. 
Germany invaded Poland in 1939. Do the math.


7.   Most transparent presidency ever...."Public will have 5 days to look at every bill that lands on my desk". 

Really? I seem to remember Reid hammering it out in some back room in total secrecy. I'm still waiting for it to hit C-Span like he promised.


8.  Called Bush unpatriotic and irresponsible for a $10.6 trillion deficit yet Barry increased it to almost $17 trillion with 3 years to go!!!!


9.   Barry said in a news conference in the White House Rose Garden that he was committed to fully fixing problems (scandal) at the IRS, saying any employees involved in targeting conservative groups would be held accountable for their "outrageous'' actions.

"Low level rogue employees in Cincinnati" as grown immeasurably. So far not one targeted group has been contacted by the FBI. No one went to jail. Paid vacation leave seems to be the punitive SOP. Barry himself has now taken a different tack calling it a "phony scandal" 


10.  And speaking of "phony scandals" we have Benghazi which reeks with real scandal. 4 dead Americans and no one lifted a finger to help. Barry, Hillary, etc nobody knows anything. Wonder what would have happened if Trayvon Martin was in the Libyan Embassy?

11.  "ObamaCare isn't going to cost one dime."

We're now about to spend $700 million just to market it! That's before we get to any specifics concerning the actual (real) cost of the plan itself.

 Imagine W came up with BushCare
 and you were fined if you didn't sign up. 

---------------------------------------------------

Barry has a long history of  over promising and under delivering.  

He wanted to be president. 
But he never wanted to be A president.

And that's one hell of a big difference!

Where's Barry?





Forget about the Trayvon Martin case. 

What could be more despicable than this?

Antonio West (Santiago) was 13 months old when he was shot between the eyes ...in his baby stroller!!!




By this steaming pile DeMarquise Elkins.



  Did Barry have a son named Antonio?



88-year-old World War II Delbert "Shorty" Belton beaten to death by...



These two Gangsta's

Kenan Adams-Kinard (Left) and Demetrius Gleen



What about the white kid who was beaten in a vicious attack on a school bus by 3 black teens?

What about the Australian baseball player Christopher Lane who was  shot and killed by three teens because they "were bored"

We hear nothing from Barry.

 He's only interested in "perceived" white on black crime. That's why we had the beer summit and the adoption of Trayvon Martin. I can't say I blame him. If he was concerned with black crime he would have no time to play golf. 

But I can help him with this. Barry said when he was young and walking into a department store they would keep an eye on him. He also said upon entering a elevator with a single white woman sharing the ride he saw her clutch her purse a little more tightly. As he walked down the street he could hear the locks click on the car doors as he strode by. He referred to this as racism. Just to clue you in Barry... this is awareness learned over time from the high crime rate in the black community... it's called reality. They don't call it "the Hood" for nothing. 

Maybe Jesse Jackson put it best. Who knows more about racism then him? Well...maybe Al. But this is what Jackson had to say 12-12-1993.

 "There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps and start thinking about robbery. Then look around and see somebody white and feel relieved."

http://www.nytimes.com/1993/12/12/opinion/in-america-a-sea-change-on-crime.html

You know what Barry... don't give me anymore of your crocodile tears horse shit!
The only difference between you and Al is he has his own show and you're just a part timer on The View. It amazes me how the rest of America can't see through you like I can.

Even the mother of the Civil Rights Movement wasn't safe. Rosa Parks Detroit home was broken into and she was mugged by this guy in 1994.

33 shocking facts since Barry became president






On a tip from Phil McCafferty




(Source)
Conservative Action Alerts





Barry has been running around the country taking credit for an “economic recovery”, but the truth is that things have not gotten better under Obama. Compared to when he first took office, a smaller percentage of the working age population is employed, the quality of our jobs has declined substantially and the middle class has been absolutely shredded. If we are really in the middle of an “economic recovery”, why is the homeownership rate the lowest that it has been in 18 years? Why has the number of Americans on food stamps increased by nearly 50 percent while Obama has been in the White House? Why has the national debt gotten more than 6 trillion dollars larger during the Obama era? Obama should not be “taking credit” for anything when it comes to the economy. In fact, he should be deeply apologizing to the American people.

And of course Obama is being delusional if he thinks that he is actually “running the economy”. The Federal Reserve has far more power over the U.S. economy and the U.S. financial system than he does. But the mainstream media loves to fixate on the presidency, so presidents always get far too much credit or far too much blame for economic conditions.

But if you do want to focus on “the change” that has taken place since Barack Obama entered the White House, there is no way in the world that you can claim that things have actually gotten better during that time frame. The cold, hard reality of the matter is that the U.S. economy has been steadily declining for over a decade, and this decline has continued while Obama has been living at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

It is getting very tiring listening to Obama supporters try to claim that Obama has improved the economy. That is a false claim that is not even remotely close to reality. The following are 33 shocking facts which show how badly the U.S. economy has tanked since Obama became president…




#1  When Barack Obama entered the White House, 60.6 percent of working age Americans had a job. Today, only 58.7 percent of working age Americans have a job.

#2  Since Obama has been president, seven out of every eight jobsthat have been “created” in the U.S. economy have been part-time jobs.

#3  The number of full-time workers in the United States is still nearly 6 million below the old record that was set back in 2007.

#4  It is hard to believe, but an astounding 53 percent of all American workers now make less than $30,000 a year.

#5  40 percent of all workers in the United States actually make less than what a full-time minimum wage worker made back in 1968.

#6  When the Obama era began, the average duration of unemployment in this country was 19.8 weeks. Today, it is 36.6 weeks.

#7  During the first four years of Obama, the number of Americans “not in the labor force” soared by an astounding 8,332,000. That far exceeds any previous four year total.

#8  According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the middle class is taking home a smaller share of the overall income pie than has ever been recorded before.

#9  When Obama was elected, the homeownership rate in the United States was 67.5 percent. Today, it is 65.0 percent. That is the lowest that it has been in 18 years.

#10  When Obama entered the White House, the mortgage delinquency rate was 7.85 percent. Today, it is 9.72 percent.

#11  In 2008, the U.S. trade deficit with China was 268 billion dollars. Last year, it was 315 billion dollars.

#12  When Obama first became president, 12.5 million Americans had manufacturing jobs. Today, only 11.9 million Americans have manufacturing jobs.

#13  Median household income in America has fallen for four consecutive years. Overall, it has declined by over $4000 during that time span.

#14  The poverty rate has shot up to 16.1 percent. That is actually higher than when the War on Poverty began in 1965.

#15  During Obama’s first term, the number of Americans on food stamps increased by an average of about 11,000 per day.

#16  When Barack Obama entered the White House, there were about 32 million Americans on food stamps. Today, there are more than 47 million Americans on food stamps.

#17  At this point, more than a million public school students in the United States are homeless. This is the first time that has ever happened in our history. That number has risen by 57 percent since the 2006-2007 school year.

#18  When Barack Obama took office, the average price of a gallon of regular gasoline was $1.85. Today, it is $3.53.

#19  Electricity bills in the United States have risen faster than the overall rate of inflation for five years in a row.

#20  Health insurance costs have risen by 29 percent since Barack Obama became president, and Obamacare is going to make things far worse.

#21  The United States has fallen in the global economic competitiveness rankings compiled by the World Economic Forum for four years in a row.

#22  According to economist Tim Kane, the following is how the number of startup jobs per 1000 Americans breaks down by presidential administration

Bush Sr.: 11.3

Clinton: 11.2

Bush Jr.: 10.8

Obama: 7.8

#23  In 2008, that total amount of student loan debt in this country was 440 billion dollars. At this point, it has shot up to about a trillion dollars.

#24  According to one recent survey, 76 percent of all Americans are living paycheck to paycheck.

#25  During Obama’s first term, the number of Americans collecting federal disability insurance rose by more than 18 percent.

#26  The total amount of money that the federal government gives directly to the American people has grown by 32 percent since Barack Obama became president.

#27  According to the Survey of Income and Program Participation conducted by the U.S. Census, well over 100 million Americans are enrolled in at least one welfare program run by the federal government.

#28  As I wrote about the other day, American households are now receiving more money directly from the federal government than they are paying to the government in taxes.

#29  Under Barack Obama, the velocity of money (a very important indicator of economic health) has plunged to a post-World War II low.

#30  At the end of 2008, the Federal Reserve held $475.9 billion worth of U.S. Treasury bonds. Today, Fed holdings of U.S. Treasury bonds have skyrocketed past the 2 trillion dollar mark.

#31  When Barack Obama was first elected, the U.S. debt to GDP ratio was under 70 percent. Today, it is up to 101 percent.

#32  During Obama’s first term, the federal government accumulated more new debt than it did under the first 42 U.S presidents combined.

#33  When you break it down, the amount of new debt accumulated by the U.S. government during Obama’s first term comes to approximately$50,521 for every single household in the United States. Are you able to pay your share?

Rise in violence 'linked to climate change'...sure it is




No doubt you have read Chicago's rise in crime is directly linked to climate change. 
But now it has spread worldwide.



The first rise in violence occurred when Cain killed Able. I can see the good Lord now sitting on a cloud scratching his head...got to do something about this climate change. 


This story below, and I do mean story could have served Barry quite well.


Reporter: What happened in Benghazi?
Barry: It was the result of a video

vs

Reporter: What happened in Benghazi?
Barry: It was violence linked to climate change

One is about as plausible as the other.



National Weather Service meteorologist Gary Conte:

It felt like the first day of fall, the kind of day for which the word "lovely" was made, the clear, autumnal sky at once flat and deep, stretched taut over the city.

At 7 am, the temperature was 67 degrees. At 8 am, it was 70. By 9 am, it had risen to 73. But by then, no one was thinking about the weather.

Tuesday, September 11, 2001





The researchers looked at 60 studies from around the world, with data spanning hundreds of years. 

OK... they want to conflate violence with climate change siting "60 studies" that "span hundreds of years".

How in the hell do you do that without once mentioning the words Islam or Muslim?

Rise in violence 'linked to climate change'

2 August 2013 Last updated at 03:18 ET By Rebecca Morelle Science reporter, BBC World Service 


The researchers believe that war and personal conflicts are links to shifts in climate 


Shifts in climate are strongly linked to increases in violence around the world, a study suggests.


US scientists found that even small changes in temperature or rainfall correlated with a rise in assaults, rapes and murders, as well as group conflicts and war.


The team says with the current projected levels of climate change, the world is likely to become a more violent place.


The study is published in Science.


Marshall Burke, from the University of California, Berkeley, said: "This is a relationship we observe across time and across all major continents around the world. The relationship we find between these climate variables and conflict outcomes are often very large."


The researchers looked at 60 studies from around the world, with data spanning hundreds of years. 


They report a "substantial" correlation between climate and conflict.


Their examples include an increase in domestic violence in India during recent droughts, and a spike in assaults, rapes and murders during heatwaves in the US.


The report also suggests rising temperatures correlated with larger conflicts, including ethnic clashes in Europe and civil wars in Africa. 


Biological root? 


Mr Burke said: "We want to be careful, you don't want to attribute any single event to climate in particular, but there are some really interesting results."


The researchers say they are now trying to understand why this causal relationship exists.


"The literature offers a couple of different hints," explained Mr Burke.


"One of the main mechanisms that seems to be at play is changes in economic conditions. We know that climate affects economic conditions around the world, particularly agrarian parts of the world. 


"There is lots of evidence that changes in economic conditions affect people's decisions about whether or not to join a rebellion, for example."


But he said there could also be a physiological basis, because some studies suggest that heat causes people to be prone to aggression.


"It is a major priority for future research to distinguish between what is going on in each particular situation."


The scientists say that with the current projected levels of climate change the world is likely to become a more violent place.


They estimate that a 2C (3.6F) rise in global temperature could see personal crimes increase by about 15%, and group conflicts rise by more than 50% in some regions.


Commenting on the research, Dr Stephan Harrison from the University of Exeter said it was a "timely study".


"What they have found is entirely plausible... For example, we already know that hotter and drier weather causes an increase in urban violence. Likewise, during cooler and wetter weather people tend to stay indoors, and the threat diminishes."


However, other researchers have questioned whether climate breeds conflict.


Work published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences suggested that this environmental factor was not to blame for civil war in Africa.


Instead, Dr Halvard Buhaug, from the Peace Research Institute Oslo, Norway, concluded that the conflict was linked to other factors such as high infant mortality, proximity to international borders and high local population density.


Commenting on the latest research, he said: "I disagree with the sweeping conclusion (the authors) draw and believe that their strong statement about a general causal link between climate and conflict is unwarranted by the empirical analysis that they provide.


"I was surprised to see not a single reference to a real-world conflict that plausibly would not have occurred in the absence of observed climatic extremes. If the authors wish to claim a strong causal link, providing some form of case validation is critical."

NAACP: In the world of politics you better learn how to suck it up




Source: Breitbart


On Tuesday, the Missouri State National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) issued a statement asking for federal involvement in the case of a rodeo clown who wore an Obama mask and then asked the crowd if they'd like to see Obama run down by a bull. "The activities at the Missouri State Fair targeting and inciting violence against our President are serious and warrant a full review by both the Secret Service and the Justice Department," said State President Mary Ratliff. "Incidents involving individuals acting out with extreme violent behavior in movie theaters, schools, churches, political appearances, and outdoor events in general speaks volume to the irresponsible behavior of all the parties involved with the incendiary events at the Missouri State Fair." 




In this 21 second video the NAACP  would go in to convulsions if  Barry was substituted for Bush. Get a grip... grow a spine... you whining Sharptons!

Conservatives eat this stuff for breakfast!

 Barry and Oprah are a bigger threat to the NAACP than this clown. It's beginning to sink in, the need for there existence,  and they don't like it.
They're grasping at straws, because without racism, they're out of business.




Ratliff went on to condemn the state's funding of the State Fair: "our Legislature has failed to support Medicare Expansion in Missouri, has consistently attempted to dismantle our Human Rights Commission, fail to adequately fund urban schools -- (who) are predominately African American -- yet they are subsidizing the Missouri State Fair to the tune of $400,000; we are calling for the subsidy to stop...[Governor Nixon's] planned Pancake Breakfast for Thursday should be his 'Last Supper' at the Missouri State Fair in response to the racially intolerant attacks on his Commander in Chief."

California Gov. Brown signs transgender-student bill


Before


After




California Gov. Jerry Brown signed a controversial bill into law Monday afternoon allowing the state's transgender public school students to choose which bathrooms they use and whether they participate in boy or girl sports.




The law would cover the state's 6.2 million elementary and high school kids in public schools.

Supporters say the law will help cut down on bullying against transgender students, The families of transgender students have been waging local battles with school districts around the country over what restrooms and locker rooms their children can use.

"Now, every transgender student in California will be able to get up in the morning knowing that when they go to school as their authentic self they will have the same fair chance at success as their classmates," Masen Davis, Executive Director of Transgender Law Center said.

While California is the first state to pass a law of this magnitude, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Washington and Colorado have all adopted policies designed to protect transgendered pupils.

Not everyone is on board.

Opponents of the bill say allowing students of one gender to use facilities intended for the other could invade the other students' privacy.

Randy Thomasson, of savecalifornia.com, says the law would "damage" kids.

"This radical bill warps the gender expectations of children by forcing all California public schools to permit biological boys in girls restrooms, showers, clubs and on girls sports teams and biological girls in boys restrooms, showers, clubs and sports teams," Thomasson said. "This is insanity."

The California bill, which was backed by a coalition of organizations including Transgender Law Center, Gay-Straight Alliance Network, Gender Spectrum, Equality California, ACLU of California, National Center for Lesbian Rights and statewide teacher and parent organizations.

Obama warns disabled veterans prolonged sequester could put their benefits in jeopardy


During these "desperate times" there always seems to be enough money for Barry. Extravagance is no stranger to him and his brood. 
The dog actually flew privately to Marth's Vineyard on a MV-22 Osprey aircraft!


Barry tried to pull this same crap before during the government shut down. The first thing out of his mouth was, "I can't guarantee you those social security checks are going to go out."

So the first checks to go (according to him) are what people worked hard for, not the welfare checks to the freeloading bums who just sit on their ass and collect for doing nothing from one generation to the next.

We'll see how that works out.

Saturday, Aug.10, 2013: President Obama speaks to injured veterans and guests at the Disabled American Veterans National Convention in Orlando, Fla. (AP)


President Obama took his case for ending the sequester to hundreds of disabled veterans Saturday, saying he protected their benefits from the "reckless" cuts to the federal budget but suggesting next year might be different.

"It's hurting our military. I made it clear that your veteran's benefits are exempt from this year's sequester," the president said to the applause of hundreds at the Disabled American Veterans' convention in Orlando, Fla. "But I want to tell you going forward the best way to protect the VA care you have earned is to get rid of this sequester altogether."

The president but the blame squarely on Congress, which returns in about four weeks to work on a new federal budget and increasing the federal debt limit.

"We've got these reckless, across-the-board budget cuts called the sequester that are hitting a lot of folks hard," Obama said. "Congress needs to come together and agree on a responsible plan that reduces our deficit and keeps our promises to our veterans and keeps our promises to future generations."

The cuts went into effect in March after Congress and the White House failed to agree on a more balanced plan to cut government spending.

Some Republicans have meanwhile said the president shares in the responsibility, considering he signed the 2011 Budget Control Act that raised the debt ceiling and led to sequester.

The president also told the veterans the government is making progress in reducing the backlog of disability claims but acknowledged the slow pace.

"It hasn't gone as fast as I've wanted," he said.

The staggering backlog of disability claims for compensation for illness and injury caused by military service has been a main concern for veterans.

The number of claims waiting to be processed ballooned under Obama, largely because the administration made it easier for Vietnam veterans who were exposed to the Agent Orange defoliant to get benefits.

The backlog recently has begun to shrink due to steps by the Department of Veterans Affairs, including requiring claims processors to work overtime and transitioning to a new computer system to help speed the judgment of claims. About 780,000 claims are pending. Currently, about 500,000 are considered backlogged, down from about 611,000 in March.

A claim is deemed backlogged if it has been in the system for 125 days, or roughly four months.

Cutting the backlog was part of a five-point plan the president unveiled that also included better health care for veterans and more funding for prosthetics for disabled veterans.

The president also discussed research into traumatic brain injury, post-traumatic stress disorder and suicide among veterans and troops, as well as efforts to help veterans earn college degrees or get the credentials needed to compete for high-skilled jobs.

Beyond the backlogged claims, Republican lawmakers have begun to hammer the department on the issue of patient safety. A congressional hearing in Atlanta this past week focused on poor patient care linked to four deaths. Another hearing is scheduled for next month in Pittsburgh, where five veterans died as a result of a Legionnaire's disease outbreak in 2011-12.

Rep. Jeff Miller, R-Fla., chairman of the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, said he hoped Obama would use his appearance at the convention to make a personal commitment to solving both issues.
