Barack Obama, our next President

SOUNDS LIKE BUSH WIth Scandals Raging At Home, Obama (Conveniently) Discovers Chemical Weapons Use in Syria,Barely a week after President Obama announced the ascendance of the left-neocon, humanitarian interventionist cultists Susan Rice and Samantha Power to the top of his foreign policy team, and in a time of choking scandal, alas a light at the end of the tunnel has appeared for the Obama regime: his old friend war!

The entirety of the US corporate media is breathlessly -- and, predictably, in lockstep -- amplifying the Obama administration's sudden amazingly convenient discovery that the Syrian government has used chemical weapons after all!

Just a few weeks ago the US Intelligence Community did not believe claims that the Syrian government used chemicals, then, after scolded by the Israelis they changed their tune to a very qualified "maybe." Now, with no formal investigation at all and no word on the chain of evidence or its source, we are told with absolute certainty that the Assad government has used the weapons. And they can't tell us because it is secret! Just like magic these things happen when needed!

And who has come forward to announce this breaking news discovery? Obama's rising national security council staff star Ben Rhodes, who,

"...earned a master's degree in fiction-writing from New York University just a few years ago . He did not have a degree in government, diplomacy, national security; nor has he served in the CIA, or the military. He was toiling away not that long ago on a novel called 'The Oasis of Love" about a mega church in Houston, a dog track, and a failed romance."

Rhodes is known as "the man behind the Benghazi cover-up" for his alleged role in altering the White House talking points and is suspected by some insiders to be the author of Obama's "red line" language threatening Syria.

Us old Democrats sure are having fun. One of my fellow Democrats with a large belly was doing a sales job presentation and at the beginning, he said he would move along quickly as none of us were slow southerners, as if southerners were all dumb rednecks.
He then proceeded to make us sit there at the beginning of his demonstration as he forgot what to enter and didn't write down anything to prepare. We sat there for about 10 minutes waiting for this smart northern liberal.
Is this a feeble attempt at humor or a cry for help from a mentally ill moron?

Consider that in the early 1960s, about 20 percent of black children and just 2 to 3 percent of white children were born to unmarried mothers, while the rate of unwed Hispanic births was somewhere in between.
By 2009, nearly 75 percent of black births, 53 percent of Hispanic births and 29 percent of white births were outside of marriage, according to the report.
A decline in marriage rates has followed the same path. In 1960, more than half of all black women were married, along with more than 66 percent of Hispanic and white women. By 2010, just 25 percent of black women, 40 percent of Hispanic women and half of white women were married.
“That the decline of traditional families occurred across racial and ethnic groups indicates that factors driving the decline do not lie solely within the black community, but in the larger social and economic context,” the report finds.
Acs said that the Moynihan report’s main conclusion about the importance of traditional families has been vindicated by research that shows children from two-parent families typically fare better educationally, financially and emotionally.
“Family structure is important,” he said.“Fathers do matter.”
To improve prospects for struggling black families, the report calls for reducing structural barriers to black economic progress, enhancing the incentives for working in the mainstream economy and improving family dynamics.

Just below your post is a Death post I responded to where he than claims he is not talking about Iraq so I am wrong. This claim came to me after in a earlier post he claimed he WASN'T talking about Libya.

The information that first came out described him as a magistrate judge. Apparently, this was incorrect.
But since that's been cleared up...
Why did Holder go "judge shopping" to illegally confiscate a journalist's emails and phone records?
Why did Judge Lamberth overturn the first two judges' refusal to give Holder permission to break the law?
These are two indisputable facts. Got answers?
It's not "judge shopping" you nitwit it called the judicial appeals process. When a plaintiff, in this case the DOJ, believes that a lower court was in error in their ruling then it presents its case to the next higher level. That's what the plaintiffs in the Prop. 8 did when a lower court ruled against the and what the Republicans did when DOMA was similarly ruled unconstitutional.
Why did Judge Lamberth overturn the previous rulings? Because they were, in his judgment , in error stupid! You may not like the ruling but hell I didn't like the decision in Citizen's United either, but it is what it is.
The DOJ has the responsibility to investigate leaks that harm national security. In this case Rosen revealed the existence of CIA sources inside of North Korea. This could jeopardize the lives of these sources and affect our ability to get intelligence concerning that country's nuclear program.
At any rate a legal warrant was obtained and therefore no laws were broken.
But you've just got your panties in a twist because it was a Fox reporter that was being investigated.

But, the most significant factor was programming the voting machines to steal votes.
It was child's play to find the locations where the Demcorats were so stupid they programmed the voting machines to steal 100 percent of the vote. It's virtually impossible to find the locations where the Democrats weren't that stupid and programmed the machines to steal one in three of one in four votes.

The FBI never canvassed Boston mosques until four days after the April 15th attacks.
If the Russians tell you that someone has been radicalized and you go check and see the mosques that they went to, then you get the articles of incorporation, as I have for the group that created the Boston mosques where these Tsarnaevs attended, and youll find out the name Alamoudi.
Youll remember because while you were FBI Director, this man who was so helpful to the Clinton administration with so many big things, he gets arrested at Dulles Airport by the FBI and hes now doing over 20 years for supporting terrorism.
This is the guy that started the mosques where your Tsarnaevs were attending and you didnt even bother to go check about the mosques?
And then when you have the pictures, why did no one go to the mosque and say, who are these guys? They attend may attend here? Why was that not done since such a thorough job was done?

Omitting Mosques from surveillance and making it classified keeps prying eyes from connecting Obama's joined at the hip, slobbering love affair with the Muslim Brotherhood.

Gohmert was much too kind to this scumbag. I would have been blunt. This entire administration including the FBI are incompetent and should resign. The terrorists were identified to them by the Russians and for some strange reason they refused to do anything about it

Looks like another stand down order from O.
So, now you're going to believe the Russians ? In communist Russia, anyone who claims his right of free speech is 'radicalized'. In America, a person's right to free speech is protected by the government,even yours,--understand the difference between a democratic country and a dictatorial one now?
