Obama: Media makes you think world is falling apart
President Obama on Friday said social media and the nightly news are partly to blame for the sense that the world is falling apart.
"I can see why a lot of folks are troubled," Obama told a group of donors gathered at a Democratic National Committee barbecue in Purchase, N.Y.
But the president said that current foreign policy crises across the world are not comparable to the challenges the U.S. faced during the Cold War.
Acknowledging "the barbarity" of Islamist militants and Russia "reasserting the notion that might means right," Obama, though, dismissed the notion that he was facing unprecedented challenges.
The worlds always been messy ... were just noticing now in part because of social media, he said, according to a White House pool report.

Concerns grow Obama underestimated Islamist, Russian threats
September 2, 2014
Miscalculations on Syria, Russia, Iraq, al Qaeda diminish allies confidence in U.S.
From Russia to Syria to Iraq to al Qaeda, President Obama and his aides have underestimated the motives and capabilities of U.S. adversaries.
With regard to some, the Obama team initially characterized bad actors as U.S. partners, such as in the cases of Russian President Vladimir Putin and Syrian President Bashar Assad.
In other instances, Mr. Obama ridiculed as a JV team the rampaging Islamic State terrorist group, said al Qaeda was on the run and declared Iraq secure as he pulled out all troops against the militarys advice.

Judicial Watch: DOJ Admits Lois Lerners E-mails Exist
August 25, 2014
A Justice Department official admitted that former IRS official Lois Lerners apparently missing e-mails actually exist on a backup server, but the government doesnt plan to retrieve them.
A Department of Justice attorney told a Judicial Watch attorney on Friday that it turns out the federal government backs up all computer records in case something terrible happens in Washington and theres a catastrophe, so the government can continue operating, Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton told Fox Newss Shannon Bream.
But it would be too hard to go get Lois Lerners e-mails from that backup system, Fitton continued, paraphrasing the DOJ official.So, everything weve been hearing about scratched hard drives, about missing e-mails of Lois Lerner, other IRS officials, other officials in the Obama administration, its all been a pack of malarkey. They could get these records, but they dont want to.
Fitton said his group plans to ask a federal judge to order the IRS to hand over the e-mails, which conservative opponents of Lerner want to see in order to determine if there is a link between President Obamas team and the IRSs targeting of tea-party groups.

Ex Republican and Conservative Virginia Gov. McDonnell and Wife Found Guilty !!!!!!
RICHMOND, Va.A jury found former Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife Maureen guilty of a slate of public corruption charges on Thursday, rejecting the couple's defense that their marriage was too broken for them to conspire and that they didn't break the law by accepting lavish gifts in exchange for backing a wealthy donor's business.
Mr. McDonnell was convicted on 11 conspiracy-related counts, and Mrs. McDonnell was convicted on nine counts, including conspiracy and obstruction of justice. The couple had pleaded not guilty to 14 charges each.
The jury of seven men and five women deliberated for about 48 hours after hearing testimony for more than a month in federal court in the Eastern District of Virginia. The courthouse is a short walk from the governor's mansion the McDonnell's inhabited from 2010 through January of this year.
Mr. McDonnell ran on family values, and wasteful government spending !!!

Ex- Republican Va. governor guilty of public corruption !!!!!!!!
RICHMOND, Va. A federal trial mired in soap-opera details of a broken marriage inside the governor's mansion ended in the harsh light of a jury convicting former Gov. Bob McDonnell and his wife, Maureen, on multiple public corruption charges Thursday.
Jurors rejected a defense built on assertions the couple was barely speaking when Bob McDonnell was in office and that they could not possibly have conspired to trade access to their power for $165,000 in loans and luxury gifts.
The largess was courtesy of a businessman, the prosecution's star witness, who was seeking to win backing from the powerful couple for one of his company's nutritional supplements.
The former governor was found guilty on 11 of 13 federal charges filed against him, his wife on nine of 13 charges filed against her. The indictment carried 14 total charges. Sentencing is scheduled for Jan. 6.
The jury deliberated about 18 hours over three days without a single question, despite the complicated nature of the evidence and indictment. After the verdicts were read and family members wept in the courtroom, the McDonnells -- married for 38 years -- left separately.
The ex-governor, a onetime political star who soared to hold the same office as Thomas Jefferson and Patrick Henry and was touted in Republican circles as a possible running mate for 2012 presidential candidate Mitt Romney, walked into a witness waiting room. Maureen McDonnell came out later, hugging one of her daughters while weeping loudly, and went into a separate waiting room.
When an ashen-faced Bob McDonnell finally emerged from the courthouse to climb into a waiting blue Mercedes, he was mobbed by TV cameras. "All I can say is that my trust remains in the Lord," he said quietly.
Here is a guy that wanted Obama impeached !!

Washington Post Finds Obamas ISIS Strategy Sort Of
Washington Post columnist David Ignatius has found Barack Obamas strategy to degrade and destroy that terrorist army ISIS. Sort of.
In his column today, Ignatius writes,Obama does seem to have a strategy, and it gets pretty good marks from allies abroad.
Awesome! What is it?
The next line in his piece is,But many components arent ready yet, and some arent fully conceptualized. Um
A strategy that isnt ready yet could still be a strategy, but one with major components not yet fully conceptualized, to me, isnt really a strategy.
Its more like an idea or two. And given the fact that the President of the United States has had a year AND the entire Pentagon at his disposal, an idea or two is literally the bare minimum you should expect from a janitor.

David Gregory Slams Obama:Big, Expansive Terrorist Threat Amassed On His Watch
NBCs David Gregory had some unpredictably harsh words for the White House during an interview with Senator Dick Durbin on Sunday, noting that a big, expansive terrorist threat that has amassed under President Obamas watch.
The Meet the Press host spoke with the Illinois Democrat over the limited air campaign ordered by the president to blunt the advance of ultra-violent jihadists in northern Iraq. Gregory requested the senators insight as to how the United States found itself again involved in the region.
Is the problem that the Obama administration wanting to be something other than President Bush got out of the business of confronting terrorism on a big, global scale and just dealt with it in a more limited way? he asked.Is it an underreaction to the terrorist threat?
Durbin tried to steer the conversation specifically back to Iraq, but Gregory cut him off.Im talking about the terrorist threat! he said.Im talking about fighting terrorism.
The Obama team said,We are not in the business of a global fight against terror, were fighting al-Qaida in limited forms, the NBC host continued.This is a big, expansive terrorist threat that has amassed on his watch.
