Obama: Pot, Kettle, Black
Obama exposes his blatant hypocrisy:
Obama said the rebels' sophisticated weaponry and training needed to shoot down aircraft "is coming from Russia" and said the United States could ratchet up sanctions on Russia if it continues to support the rebels.
You mean the way your administration was arming ISIS allies in Syria?
And more hypocrisy:
Our immediate focus will be on recovering those who were lost, investigating exactly what happened and putting forward the facts. And I want to point out there will likely be misinformation as well. I think it's very important for folks to sift through what is factually based and what is simply speculation.
You mean like blaming Benghazi attacks on a Youtube video?

Gotta Love the Poles
Poland’s Foreign Minister Radek Sikorski did not mince words when going into detail over his view of the Obama administration and its impact upon American foreign relations with other nations who once considered themselves staunch allies of the United States. Now, after nearly six years of Barack Obama, those former allies view relations with the U.S. as “worthless”.“You know that the Polish-US alliance isn’t worth anything.”
“It is downright harmful, because it creates a false sense of security … Complete bullshit. We’ll get in conflict with the Germans, Russians and we’ll think that everything is super, because we gave the Americans a blow job. Losers. Complete losers.”Obama's doing a heckuva job in our relations with the leaders in Eastern European freedom there, no?

Breaking! Obama Sucks at Presidency
e percentage of Americans approving of President Barack Obama’s handling of foreign policy issues has dropped to the lowest level of his presidency as he faces multiple overseas challenges, including in Iraq, according to a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll.Well what did you expect, that an Illinois politician would run the country better than they ran their own FUBAR state?
click for image credit
Additionally, the public is evenly split on whether Obama is a competent manager of the federal bureaucracy. And a majority of respondents – 54 percent – believe the term-limited president is no longer able to lead the country.
Say what you want about Cheney, he is at the very least super intelligent and very effective at his job.
Meanwhile Eric at Media Matters doubles down on his denail, snorts a big old line and continues to point his finger at Fox News. As if, "Look Squirrel!" will bring Ambassador Stevens back to life and save the Holy One's presidency.
Update: New Libyan Government that Obama helped install condemns US for capturing terrorist who murdered out Ambassador.
So hows that Gaddafi is dead thing working out for you Mr. President?

IRS: Computer Crash Deleted Lois Lerner's Emails
The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) claimed Friday that it cannot produce Lois Lerner’s emails to and from the White House and other administration departments due to a supposed computer crash.
The IRS previously agreed to hand over all of the ex-IRS official’s emails from 2009 to 2011 to the House Ways and Means Committee, chaired by Rep. Dave Camp. But the IRS claimed Friday that it has Lerner’s emails to and from other IRS officials but it cannot produce emails to and from the Treasury and Justice Departments, the Federal Election Commission, or Democratic offices.
I'm sure the White House can provide the emails from their end, right?

Obama: MY Government
President Obama, a Constitutional scholar, seems to have forgotten the first few words of the Constitution of the United States: "We the people..."
In justifying his illegal prison swap, Obama insisted that his government was unanimous in agreeing to the exchange:
It's not your government, Mr. Obama. It is our government. That's why we elect representatives to make certain our voices are also counted.
When will this madness end?

Speculation: Bergdahl Thought He, Not Obama, Was Messiah Who Could Talk the Taliban Into Being Nice
So, does this mean that he was merely AWOL and not a deserter? The key difference being that someone who is AWOL plans to come back. AllahP has a pretty lengthy piece cobbling together a plausible counter narrative to the "Bergdahl was a traitor who joined the Taliban" and the "Bergdahl was a naive idiot trying to walk to India" narrative.
Unfortunately, this one doesn't paint Bergdahl in much better light. This one claims Bergdahl had a messiah complex and thought that his singular awesomeness would be enough to talk the Taliban into ... get this ... a negotiated truce.
Which makes him sound even more insane. Also, it makes him sound exactly like our Commander in Chief:
That’s the kook theory in a nutshell. Bergdahl may well have been disgusted with the U.S. and its mission and left to seek out the Taliban — not to “actively collaborate” with them, though, but to fulfill some odd fantasy that he was going to negotiate the end of the war. Remember, there are reports that he tried to escape from the Taliban at least twice. None of that would absolve him from the charge of desertion but it would challenge the suspicion, raised by former squad mates Evan Buetow and Justin Gerleve, that he was helping the Taliban improve the precision of their attacks on U.S. convoys.Plausible? About as plausible as any of the other scenarios.
And yet, if true, the fact that we would call Bergdahl a kook for thinking in the precise manner as Barack Obama and the entire State Department says a lot about our current state of political affairs.
Let me just also note that I'm not particularly invested in this or any other theories as to why Bergdahl left his post. I'm just throwing it out there as one of a number of plausible theories. Take a look at AllahP's post, apparently a number of news agencies have tried to track down the letter Bergdahl has been alleged to have left behind when he deserted and can't find it.
Even more speculation by Howie: If wonder if there are boobies below the fold?

Report: al Qaeda Totally on the Run, 50% More Jihadis This Year than 3 Years Ago
So, if Obama's policies to defeat al Qaeda are working so much better than George W. Bush's, then why are there way more al Qaeda today then when George W. Bush was in office?
This isn't rocket science. When you have a mixture of policies meant to decrease something, and instead it radically increases ... then you know you're doing something wrong. Something very, very wrong:
The threat to the U.S. from global jihadist groups has escalated in the past three years, with the number of groups increasing by more than 50% and the estimated number of militants doubling, according to a report to be released on Thursday.Obama: Let's give this guy another Nobel Peace Prize.
The report by the Rand Corp. think tank, which used public data to take a kind of global census of al Qaeda and related groups, will say the civil war in Syria has been the largest driver of the growth of jihadist activity. Syria is the location that has seen the greatest growth in number of groups and numbers of militants, which now make up more than half of the number of al Qaeda-sympathizing jihadists world-wide.

Smartest White House Ever Accidentally Outs CIA Chief in Kabul
Man, these guys working for President Obama are so super smart. Part of the highly educated technocratic elite. Way more smarter than that the last batch of political hacks who worked for President Chimpy McHalliburton:
The CIA’s top officer in Kabul was exposed Saturday by the White House when his name was inadvertently included on a list provided to news organizations of senior U.S. officials participating in President Obama’s surprise visit with U.S. troops.So, what's the big deal?
The White House recognized the mistake and quickly issued a revised list that did not include the individual, who had been identified on the initial release as the “Chief of Station” in Kabul, a designation used by the CIA for its highest-ranking spy in a country.
The identities of at least three CIA station chiefs in Pakistan have been exposed in recent years. In one case, a CIA officer became a target of death threats after his cover was blown, forcing the agency to rush him out of the country.Aren't you glad our government is in such wise hands?
Heads should roll, but they won't. And then when Congress investigates for lack of White House action we'll be told this is old news and a distraction from important stuff, like amnesty for millions of illegal aliens.

IRS DC Office Directed Targeting of Conservative Groups
Judicial Watch today released a new batch of Internal Revenue Service (IRS) documents revealing that its handling of Tea Party applications was directed out of the agency’s headquarters in Washington, DC. The documents also show extensive pressure on the IRS by Senator Carl Levin (D-MI) to shut down conservative-leaning tax-exempt organizations. The IRS’ emails by Lois Lerner detail her misleading explanations to investigators about the targeting of Tea Party organizations.The Obama administration, the most transparent BS lie pushing administration ever. And I'm including Slick Willie so that's saying something.
The documents came in response to an October 2013 Judicial Watch Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the agency refused to respond to four FOIA requests dating back to May 2013 (Judicial Watch, Inc. v. Internal Revenue Service (No. 1:13-cv-01559)).
One key email string from July 2012 confirms that IRS Tea Party scrutiny was directed from Washington, DC. On July 6, 2010, Holly Paz (the former Director of the IRS Rulings and Agreements Division and current Manager of Exempt Organizations Guidance) asks IRS lawyer Steven Grodnitzky “to let Cindy and Sharon know how we have been handling Tea Party applications in the last few months.” Cindy Thomas is the former director of the IRS Exempt Organizations office in Cincinnati and Sharon Camarillo was a Senior Manager in their Los Angeles office. Grodnitzky, a top lawyer in the Exempt Organization Technical unit (EOT) in Washington, DC, responds:

Bombshell: Emails Prove Obama Administration Orchestrated Benghazi Attack Lies
I'm literally speechless. Not because I didn't believe this already, just that the Administration would be so stupid as to put this in writing. Consider it a smoking gun. It's a press release, which I guess means I can quote it at length:
Judicial Watch announced today that on April 18, 2014, it obtained 41 new Benghazi-related State Department documents. They include a newly declassified email showing then-White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes and other Obama administration public relations officials attempting to orchestrate a campaign to “reinforce” President Obama and to portray the Benghazi consulate terrorist attack as being “rooted in an Internet video, and not a failure of policy.” Other documents show that State Department officials initially described the incident as an “attack” a possible kidnap attempt....In other words: lie to the public about the video so that they will be distracted from the Administration's failure.
The Rhodes email was sent on sent on Friday, September 14, 2012, at 8:09 p.m. with the subject line: “RE: PREP CALL with Susan, Saturday at 4:00 pm ET.” The documents show that the “prep” was for Amb. Rice’s Sunday news show appearances to discuss the Benghazi attack.
The document lists as a “Goal”: “To underscore that these protests are rooted in and [sic] Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.”...
In the days following the Knopf email, Rice appeared on ABC, CBS, NBC, Fox News and CNN still claiming the assaults occurred “spontaneously” in response to the “hateful video.”

Pessimism Reaches New Lows As Analyst Predicts a Nuclear Saudi Arabia and an Empowered and More Dangerous al Qaeda
The House Committee on Foreign Affairs had a subcommittee meeting a couple of days ago which asked the question, "Is al-Qaeda Winning? Grading the Administration's Counterterrorism Policy?" There were five people giving testimony, all of whom seemed to agree that al Qaeda was not on the run despite the "core" in Pakistan losing some ground and who's assessments ranged from the administration is doing what it can to counter the threat but we shouldn't let our guard down to god of the sweet meteor of relief, we pray that you will send end it all before it's too late:
All conditions are set for a series of significant terrorist attacks against the US and its allies over the next few years. But that's not the worst news. Conditions are also set for state collapse in Iraq, Syria, Lebanon, Yemen, and possibly Jordan. Saudi Arabia, facing a complex succession soon, is likely to acquire nuclear weapons shortly, if it has not already done so. Turkey and Egypt confront major crises. Almost all of Northern and Equatorial Africa is violent, unstable, and facing a growing al Qaeda threat. And Vladimir Putin's assault on Ukraine is likely to empower al Qaeda-aligned jihadists in Crimea and in Russia itself. That eventuality is, of course, less worrisome than the prospect of conventional and partisan war on the European continent, likely threatening NATO allies. The international order and global stability are collapsing in a way we have not seen since the 1930s. There is little prospect of this trend reversing of its own accord, and managing it will require massive efforts by the US and its allies over a generation or more.And on that cheerful note ... HOPENCHANGE!

Lois Lerner Personally Approved Malik Obama's IRS Application for Tax Exempt Status for Barack H. Obama Foundation Within 30 Days
Its quite clear that Obama uses the Chicago Way management style. See next post.
Gateway Pundit: Obama’s IRS unfairly targeting hundreds of conservative groups, but President Obama’s radical half-brother “got a sweetheart deal” from the IRS.So in a way Obama's operative Lerner helped facilitate the funding of Hamas a specially designated terrorist entity. An entity he himself just called terrorists in his State of the Union Speech.
According to the Daily Caller, Lois Lerner, the senior IRS official at the center of the decision to target tea party groups for burdensome tax scrutiny, signed paperwork granting tax-exempt status to the Barack H. Obama Foundation, a shady charity headed by the president’s half-brother that operated illegally for years. Lerner approved the foundation’s tax status within a month of filing.
If she was acting this way because her boss wanted her to then he also lent material support to terrorists.
Isn't that kind of like an impeachable offense? Hmmmm?

New Year, Same Ol' Sh*t
Sorry folks, as an academic meathead I am given more vacation than even this guy.
What was it that Spider Man's uncle told him right before he croaked? With great responsibility comes great vacations.
Something like that.
So I just popped onto the intertubez from my penthouse sweet overlooking the vast South Pacific while sipping a drink with a bunch of fruit and a little umbrella. Yeah, I might be a drunk, but if I am it's the kind of being a drunk that you don't share with your friends. Do they have a 12 step program for girl-drink drunks?
Anyhoo, just wanted to pop in and say hola. So, hola!
Is it just this basketball sized coconut filled with blue alcohol talking or does the world actually seem less safe today for Muslims then the day President Obama won the Nobel Peace Prize for "resetting" US relations with the Islamic world? Because I keep waking up to news that Muslims are dying all over the Muslim world because other Muslims don't think they're the right kind of Muslim.
But, you know, BUSHHITLER!
It's not that I blame Obama for any of this. I don't. When someone murders someone else, I blame the murderer not the guy thousands of miles away telling the cameras about how awesome their foreign policy is and, yes, aren't we all just so lucky to have him as President?
But I think it's pretty telling that the US news media has pretty much given up on covering the bloodshed all over the Muslim world because ... OBAMA.
I can't believe I have to put up with three more years of this sh*t.
Anway, I'll be back next week.

Yet even with the small turnout, there was a theme amongst Obama’s protesters/supporters (supportesters?): They didn’t want him to change his political agenda — instead, they demanded that he assume dictatorial powers so that he could finally implement the radical plans with which they already agree. The message of the day was: Stop dilly-dallying around, Mr. President: Ignore the Constitution and just make The Revolution happen, as you promised!So this is how liberty dies...with thunderous applause.

For a long time, the U.S. president retained a much higher popularity on the other side of the Atlantic than that of the average European leader, even when his popularity collapsed among his own citizens. Obama resembled neither Angela Merkel nor Nicolas Sarkozy. Obama was a cool president.Chapeau pointe Maetenloch
This summer, the image caved in. The "Yes We Can" president became the "Yes We Scan" leader. In press cartoons, large ears pushed out. It's not the repulsion inspired by his predecessor, George W. Bush — not yet — but the charm is gone. Without Hillary Clinton's talents, Barack Obama is not cool, he is cold.

Obama's Facebook, Twitter PWND by Syrian eHadis
This is funny for a lot of reasons:
President Barack Obama's social media updates were temporarily hijacked Monday due to an apparent exploit in the URL shortener his team uses to promote Organizing for Action, an organization that promotes Obamacare.
Modified OFA links included in Obama's Twitter and Facebook updates, though now corrected, directed visitors to a 24-minute "Syria facing terrorism" video for a short period of time. The Syrian Electronic Army (SEA) has claimed responsibility for the exploit. The virtual army of hackers also said that it had accessed Obama's campaign e-mail accounts.

Morgan Jones' job was training the unarmed guards who manned the compound's gates.

Morgan had nothing to do with the militia, but they worried him so much, he could not keep quiet.
Morgan Jones: I was saying, "These guys are no good. You need to-- you need to get 'em out of here."
Lara Logan: You also kept saying, "If this place is attacked these guys are not going to stand and fight?"

Charity Pays Death Gratuity for Slain Soldiers that Obama DOD Won't
As I pointed out a couple of days ago, Congress already authorized the payment of Death Gratutity to fallen soldiers during the partial shut down. But the Obama DOD chose to read the statue in the most restrictive way refusing to pay the $100 k Death Gratuity to the families of those who paid the ultimate sacrifice. This follows a general pattern of the Administration trying to make the shut down hurt more than it has to as a matter of political policy: He wants you to suffer so you'll blame the Republicans.
But in this case we weren't talking about artificial barriers put up to keep you from seeing Mt. Rushmore -- childish and inconvenient -- we're talking about direct payments to families who just lost a loved one. Not hypothetical payments to soldiers' families, actual payments of men killed in combat last week.
But I just got word from the IAVA that the Fisher House Foundation has stepped up and offered to make payments to the families where the DOD has failed them. These people are heroes.

FUBAR: DOD Refusing to Pay Death Benefits Because of "Shut Down" UPDATE: Obama Intentionally Withholding Benefits
If this doesn't make you mad, you hate America. No, I'm not kidding.
Go to the link. It's not hypothetical. A ranger unit was attacked over the weekend in Afghanistan with heavy casualties. The families of those who just made the ultimate sacrifice are getting an IOU.
This is insane. It's ass kicking time.
UPDATE: It gets worse. This in from the House Armed Services Committee:
We flagged this early last week. Chairman Joe Wilson from South Carolina runs our military personnel subcommittee and sent this letter up to Secretary Hagel on Friday.So, how far will the Obama Admin go to make the partial shutdown as inconvenient as possible? So far they're willing to deny death benefits for fallen soldiers, even though Congress already authorized the paying of those benefits.
In it, we attached the list of pay and benefits that are included in the Pay Our Military Act. See the list below the letter. The House interrupted this as including the Death Gratuity. The Obama Administration chose to read it as not including the Death Gratuity.
So now we are working to give them the specific authorization for Death Gratuity in shutdown. I'd expect that bill to hit the floor very soon.
Obama is trying to be an asshole. He succeeded.
