Obama: Dancing Barefoot on the Embers
American Thinker ^ | 7/12/2014 | James Lewis

Posted on 07/12/2014 3:41:56 AM PDT by markomalley

I can remember several times when Obama just started to laugh in public at various disasters triggered by his policies.

Happy laughter now seems to be the official White House reaction to domestic and international chaos and human suffering. You could call it leading with Obama’s big strength --  a great smile on TV -- while avoiding the worst of his weaknesses -- his inability to actually solve anything.

About a year ago when painfully high black unemployment figures were mentioned, especially among young black men, Obama gave a happy smile in response. Then when “NATO” (i.e., the U.S.) started to bomb and overthrow the stabilizing regime of Gadaffi in Libya in a plot to arm Syria’s Al Qaeda rebels with American weapons, including MANPADS, Obama gave us his fabulous movie star smile after being asked whether U.S. Presidents should not ask Congress for authorization to go to war. Now those weapons are being used by ISIS to kill people in Syria and Iraq, as it is marching on Baghdad and el-Maliki, our supposed ally. When the administration is asked to stop the march of barbarism in Iraq, it just gives a collective shrug. What, me worry?

Now the ISIS has a reported 88 pounds of enriched uranium and half a billion dollars stolen from Mosul banks, but “administration officials” are telling us not to worry.

Our southern border has been openly breached by our good neighbor Mexico and Central American corruptocracies, working hand-in-hand with the Sinaloa Cartel, La Raza, people smugglers (including children) and Valerie Jarrett, who has met with the Children’s Crusade organizers --- who are not allowed to talk to the media…

I disagree. When Obama has that stupid smile on he knows he's dancing on the Constitution and the graves of the Founding Fathers.

I absolutely abhor this man and his cabal.

-——including MANPADS-——

While that has been reported, so far as I know, there is no evidence in the form of downed Syrian bombers or other aircraft. If ISIL had MANPADS the Syrian airforce would not be bombing as effectively

He’s high. At first I thought cocaine, but with the laughter, I’m wondering if he picked up some highTHC bud in California or Washington or Colorado (or all - since they’re all pot states) and that’s what’s giving him the giggles

“Now the ISIS has a reported 88 pounds of enriched uranium and half a billion dollars stolen from Mosul banks, but “administration officials” are telling us not to worry.”

This bothers me. All the way up until just recently nothing
like this “88 pounds of enriched uranium” ever existed in
Iraq. Remember “Bush lied, there are no weapons of mass
destruction in Iraq”. Now we are finding out that the material for these weapons are being stolen from Iraq.
One, if the material was there all along, why wasn’t it
seized and taken out of Iraq or why is it still there?
Two, if it was never there in the first place, who put it
there?
We recently had some nuclear bombs come up missing and now, out of the blue, there’s this enriched uranium
just laying around?

I don’t buy it. This is looking more and more like a
false flag setup to me.

As if his goal is to make America better. When will these conservative commentators get that his and his crew's aim is to destroy the country as we know it.

The video has been scrubbed, but if anyone can post the 60 Minutes video where he is giggling, smirking and laughing through the interview, it would be worth watching.

I know not many agree with my opinion but I have stated more than once that the regime and their laughing fool have been pushing the House of Representatives to initiate impeachment hearing against him.

I don’t know if Boehner had that in mind when he stated no impeachment against him will happen but, it seems to me, after that was said the maniacal laughing fool started to act totally disinterested and detached from the office of the president of the country.

They needed those riots across the country.

After seeing how some people continue to insist on “incompetence” as an explanation of what is happening I wonder if they would consider the beheading of Daniel Pearl to be the unfortunate result of an amateurish attempt to shave the hair from his neck. This is NOT sarcasm, I am perfectly serious.

RAMIFICATIONS OF THE BORDER INVASION
NRO reports adult illegals posing as unaccompanied alien children are attempting to enroll at Massachusetts public high schools. Some of them had gray hair, saying they’re 17 years old, and claim to have have no documentation.

Gray haired men enrolling in schools?

Mmmmmm.......sounds like drug lords infiltrating schools---planning to set up lifelong lucrative businesses getting kids addicted......giving out free samples.

Could also be sex traffickers ---lining up kiddies for johns..... and for pedophiles who pay big bucks to get ahold of the little darlings.

But I guess tolerant and compassionate libbers are OK with that (/snix).

Hugo Chavez taught Boobamba a little trick---if you don't have the votes to win---you import them from destitute countries. If you promise them billions in remittances they'll gladly empty out their villages.

Mexico made deal to send more illegal aliens to the U.S
Examiner.com ^ | 7/09/14 | Dave Gibson / FR by blueyon

On Monday, Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto and Guatemalan president Otto Perez Molina held a joint press conference in Playas de Catazaja, Mexico, to officially announce an agreement to make it easier for those making the illegal journey to the United States from Central America, to cross into Mexico.

The Southern Border Program to Improve Passage, will provide for more border checkpoints along Mexico's border with Guatemala, and offer more protection and even emergency medical care to those making their way north. The illegal aliens will receive a so-called Regional Visitor's Card, according to El Universal. (Excerpt) Read more at examiner.com ...

INVESTOR'S BUSINESS DAILY---Central America Border Rush Fueled By Remittances
(extortion racket---US taxpayers to prop up corrupt govts)

......52,000 unaccompanied illegals crossed the south Texas border this year.....as the political debate focused on immigration enforcement, a key economic factor has been lost in the clamor. Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras, which are supplying three-quarters of the latest cross-border flood, and are dependent on their diaspora in the US to prop up their own woeful economies.

Immigrants send back billions of dollars to their families. Remittances have risen to 16.5% of El Salvador's GDP, 15.7% of Honduras' and 10% of Guatemala's, according to World Bank data. Nicaragua, the Dominican Republic and Bolivia rely on remittances for 4.1% to 9.7% of GDP.

But the figure drops precipitously for every other country in Latin America. Mexico, with the largest immigrant population in the U.S. with as many as 13 million people, now relies on remittances for just 2% of GDP.

Migrant remittances to Mexico were $22 billion in 2013, 29% below their 2006 peak. For Colombia, once a locus of drug-war violence, that has turned itself around, remittances are only 1.1% of GDP. Free-market star Chile's figure is 0%.

It's not surprising to see Central American leaders urging the U.S. to let the newest arrivals stay. Those migrants' remittances offer a lifeline to desperately poor countries. While the money goes to families, it helps the broader economy......and ultimately fills government coffers.

A 2008 Pew Research Center survey found that 54% of foreign-born Hispanics send remittances to their home countries, compared to 17% of U.S.-born Hispanics. Undocumented immigrants are believed to send more cash home than either.

Virtually all the cash received by the three remittance outliers is from the U.S. (Guatemala 89%, El Salvador 90%, Honduras 87%).

This article contains the 60 Minutes interview. The part everyone talks about begins at 13:10. The article in itself is interesting, as the author discusses Obama’s narcissism and includes quotes from Sam Vaknin.

We knew this sort of thing was going to happen!

Those of us who decided to put on our big Boy and Girl pants and vote for Romney (Even though he was the last choice for most of us) were ridiculed, called RINO’s, and generally treated like sh*t for putting our support behind Romney to defeat the Marxist.

To those who didn’t vote, you hold some responsibility for where we’re currently at. You saw the damage Obama did in his first term, with a promise to complete his destruction on our nation, but it was more important for you to destroy Romney.

As bad as Romney is:

* He doesn’t hate the Constitution

* He doesn’t hate businesses

* He doesn’t hate tax cuts

* He doesn’t hate Christianity and religion

* He doesn’t hate oil exploration and the Keystone Pipeline

* He doesn’t hate our traditional allies...namely Israel

OBAMA...YES TO ALL!

All of this and yet FReepers and other like-minded douchebags saw Romney as more of a threat to Obama! You people who didn’t vote in the last Presidential election are NO Patriots! You are enablers who allowed a Marxist a 2nd term!

Obama, the Democrat Party, and Leftists everywhere thank you for your selfishness and stupidity.

Saying “inability to solve problems” misses the essential point of obama and his policies. In the fundamental transformation of America, all of these problems besetting the country are of his design and not intended to be solved. Stop giving him implicit credit for being well-intentioned but stupid and incompetent. He’s just evil along with his policies.

I voted for that moron, Romney, as did every member of my family. He didn’t even want it himself, participating in a foreign policy debate and not hammering the king on Benghazi. He let himself be bullied by Candy Crowley. He never fought after the first debate. He is worthless and a liberal. He threw the game against Ted Kennedy in 1994. This was a re-run.

I don’t blame people for not voting for Romney. How about blaming the real agents of this disaster instead of a bunch of phantom non-voters. Do you really think Obama won the thing legitimately? Romney was the Wendell Willkie of modern elections.

If your candidate cannot earn the votes they do not win. Our votes are now owned or owed to the Republican Party or anyone or anything else. Period.

It is not our duty to elect any idiot who gets the nomination, that idiot has to EARN our vote.

The marxist won a second term, because the GOPE nominated the worst possible candidate.

That is the reason. Trying to blame voters instead of the candidate and party is ridiculous. The candidate and party are the only ones responsible for attracting votes.

Of course you are all correct that Obuttwipe's actions are intentionally destructive, not "incompetence." Despite what most write, I think conservative commentators know that as well, but for some reason most are still afraid to come right out and say it. Which is almost as infuriating.
