Jimmy Carter’s infamous “malaise” speech in 1979 was inspirational by comparison. Carter focused on a “crisis of confidence in the future” while Obama scolded the country for losing confidence in him. Carter tried to lift up America, Obama came to put it down.Total. Effing. Ownage.
He meant his attacks to be especially vicious, but the spectacle was more sad than provocative. The president needs a rest from the job as much as we need a new president.
Forty-nine innocent people were gunned down in a gay nightclub by an Islamic terrorist, another 53 lie wounded, yet Obama feels only his own pain. Public confidence in his effort to combat terrorism on his own peculiar terms while soft-pedaling the links to Islam were among the casualties in the Pulse nightclub. The world knows he’s a failure and he can’t stand the embarrassment.
...Oh, would he love to run against Mitt Romney again.

Awesome! Obama Recovery Holding Down The Averages
Among the 10 jobs projected to grow the fastest in coming years, half pay less than $25,000 a year, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics. And three-quarters pay less than the typical annual wage of $35,540.But hey who needs money because now when you get an Obama McJob you probably qualify for Medicaid.
Many of these hot jobs are in health care. As the country ages, more of us will need medical and personal assistance. So personal care aides, home health aides and nursing assistants, which all pay $12 an hour or less for a 40-hour workweek, are on the list, which looks at the occupations that will grow the most (in terms of numbers) between 2014 and 2024.
The only health care job that pays well and that's adding lots of positions is registered nurse, which comes with a median wage of $66,640.

White House Censors French President Hollande For Describing Islamic Terrorism
So now Obama is censoring the Free Speech of the one nation that helped us win our independence from the UK, supported us in 1812 and sold us 1/3 of our land?
The White House website has censored a video of French Pres. Francois Hollande saying that “Islamist terrorism” is at the “roots of terrorism.”So here where the free speech is protected by the Constitution our "leader" censors our oldest ally?
The White House briefly pulled video of a press event on terrorism with Pres. Obama, and when it reappeared on the WhiteHouse.gov website and YouTube, the audio of Hollande’s translator goes silent, beginning with the words “Islamist terrorism,” then begins again at the end of his sentence.
Even the audio of Hollande saying the words “Islamist terrorism” in French have, apparently, been edited from the video.
According to the official White House transcript of Hollande’s remarks, Hollande refers to “Islamist terrorism.” The audio of the bold text in brackets is missing from the video – the only point in the video were the audio is absent:
Tell me again why we have not impeached this President for cowardice?

Shocking News! Obama's State Department Are TFP
The State Department announced Wednesday that it will miss the congressionally-mandated deadline for deciding whether the murder of Christians in territory controlled by the Islamic State should be deemed a genocide.
In 2015, President Obama signed a provision in the omnibus government funding bill requiring Secretary of State John Kerry to determine by Thursday, March 17 whether the Islamic State's actions legally constitute genocide. But State Department spokesman Mark Toner said Wednesday that Kerry will let that deadline lapse, and ask for more time.

Sandcrawler PSA: If Obama Were Republican Things Would Be Really Bad
"Be very glad we don't have a Republican president," Walter Russell Mead told us in May of last year, warning that if such were so we would be enduring a "merciless media pounding" on the series of "failures, mistakes, and false starts" that have been our lot since Obama took office. Instead, we have a Democrat who is allowed by the press to fail quietly, discreetly, and off center stage.

ISIS Murders Four Kurdish Soldiers in Revenge Video
So ISIS seems a little pissed off about the raid on the prison. Our hearts go out to the Kurds.
A video purportedly from ISIS surfaced online Friday and shows the terrorists beheading four Kurdish Peshmerga fighters in retaliation for the daring raid by U.S.-led coalition forces last week in northern Iraq.
At the end of the 15-minute video, a masked English-speaking man delivers a warning to U.S. President Barack Obama before he executes one of the prisoners, who is wearing an orange jumpsuit.
The three other prisoners are also seen being beheaded at the end of the video and Arabic text appears onscreen. It translates as "Peshmerga soldiers that Americans came down to rescue."
Earlier in the video, ISIS also claims to show the aftermath of the raid during which 70 hostages were rescued by Kurdish, U.S. and Iraqi forces from an ISIS prison in Hawija, in the northern Iraq province of Kirkuk.
Here is the English spoken bu the first killer to Obama. He sounds American to me. But he's not very eloquent, obviously reciting a prepared statement in a halting fashion. Despite his claims of "victory" it seems we made quite the mess for ISIS.
Obama you have learned a new lesson. Six of the soldiers of the Caliphate faced Four Hundred of your children. They killed and injured them by Allah's grace. You are probably surprised by this.This man then beheads the first prisoner as the other three are forced to watch. Its a as gruesome a beheading as I've witnessed.
Oh Crusader, it is the support of Allah.
You did not gain anything, you returned to your bases and with losses and humiliation. Obama you wage war against Allah, he supports us against you. It is the promise of Allah. Allah will never fail in his promise.
Then a warning in Arabic is given to the Kurds and the other three prisoners are beheaded. (screencap and video below the fold)
The video is available here by request.
(I'm not around to approve the requests so if you didn't get it by now, sorry.)
Its not clear if the following strike was before or after the video. But from the damage shown on the ground it may be after.

Obama Paid the Price For Turkish Airbases
Turkish fighter jets, which on Friday attacked Islamic State targets in Syria, have launched a wave of airstrikes in northern Iraq, targeting camps of the militant Kurdistan Workers’ Party for the first time in four years, the prime minister’s office said Saturday.Nice job Obama you just sold out the very last progressive people in the Middle East who supported freedom and loved the United States.
The Iraq raids, which began late Friday and continued into Saturday, effectively ended an unstable two-year cease-fire between the Turkish government and the Kurdish militants, also known by the initials of their Kurdish name, P.K.K. After a three-decade conflict that claimed at least 40,000 lives, the two sides reached a fragile peace in 2013, though there have been a few minor clashes since then.
Obama, Sir. You suck. And I don't just mean suck in the ordinary sense, you megafookingsuckshitthroughastraw.

Uncle Samuel in comments posted a link to a very similar analogy at HopeNChange Cartoons (all emphasis is the author's):
The pilot was locked out of the cockpit.
That phrase finally revealed the full horror of the crash of Germanwings flight 9525. Co-pilot Andreas Lubitz waited for the pilot to leave the cockpit, then locked the door to prevent his re-entry. After which Lubitz, for reasons unknown and perhaps unknowable, deliberately steered the jet into a harrowing 8 minute plunge ending in an explosive 434 mph impact with a rocky mountainside. 150 men, women and children met an immediate, unthinkably violent death.
Lubitz, in his single-minded madness, couldn't be stopped because anyone who could change the jet's disastrous course was locked out.
It's hard to imagine the growing feelings of fear and helplessness that the passengers felt as the unforgiving landscape rushed up to meet them. Hard - but not impossible.
Because America is in trouble. We feel the descent in the pits of our stomachs. We hear the shake and rattle of structures stressed beyond their limits. We don't know where we're going anymore, but do know it isn't good. And above all, we feel helpless because Barack Obama has locked us out.

Obama Out To Fire Every Honest Man in His Administration
I mean Stalin sure as hell would have never tolerated these kind of open public contradictions and by golly Obama doesn't have too either.
A few days ago Chuck Hagel was warning Americans that our military capability was being threatened and now Obama is forcing him to resign. Sounds like Hagel might be a little too honest for this administration:Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel will step down from his position at the request of President Barack Obama, who is seeking to reassure critics of his foreign policy with the move, a senior administration official confirmed to CNN Monday.
The New York Times reported Monday that Obama is expected to appear in the Rose Garden on Monday to announce Hagel’s resignation, having asked him to step down last Friday.
The move, White House officials told the Times, was meant to acknowledge that the new national security threats facing the nation — most notably the rise of the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria — call for different capabilities than those possessed by Hagel.

These Aren't The EMails We Didn't Look For
June, the IRS announced that a critical two-year segment of Lois Lerner’s emails were lost in a hard drive crash. Conveniently, these emails perfectly corresponded with the time when Tea Party groups were being targeted for extra scrutiny and possible criminal prosecution.
Since the IRS is a government agency, many reasonable people were convinced there had to be other places to look for records. Especially since the IRS expects us to live like hoarders, meticulously keeping every receipt to avoid running afoul of their agency. Now, five months later, the IRS admits that it still hasn’t searched any of its backup systems.
What Obama Really Thinks of You
Megyn Kelly on the Kelly File revealed a second video of ObamaCARE architect Jonathan Gruber calling the American voters stupid. This video is from October of last year and could have also been used in the mid-term elections this, but for whatever reason wasn’t. Here is the second video of Jonathan Gruber calling the American voter stupid. If you want to skip ahead in this video of Megyn Kelly’s earlier discussion, right the Gruber’s remarks, go to 2 minutes and 22 seconds.
I saw Mr. Gruber's MSNBC interview and all I can say is, Filed under Assmaggots.
At least this time we aren't stupid American voters. After a first video of Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber, talking about the bill being vague to fool stupid American Voters. And a second video outed last night by Megyn Kelly, below is video #3. This one from a speech at the University of Rhode Island in November 2012. This time he talks about then Senator, now Secretary of State John Kerry helping him take advantage of the economically unsophisticated American voter.
Which is why a Jury of American voters would probably send him to the gallows if they ever knew the truth. That the SUPPORTERS of Obamacare were intentionally misled, sold a bill of goods. That would neither help them nor anyone else.
Because the truth is that even though Mr. Gruber claims that if you get hit by a car you can go bankrupt, well no you can sue the driver. But even after Obamacare, even after you pay more, even after your subsidy, even after yout Obamacare plan pays you can still be bankrupt.
And the "evil insurance companies" still get theirs while you get the shaft.
So very clever.
As if filing bankruptcy and letting the provider claim the loss was a "worse" system.
Yes it was worse, because the healthcare system that sucked uop 18 percent of the economy will get just what they demanded from Obama to drop their opposition to Obamacare. Now they will get even more than 18% of the GDP and will get to keep more of that 18%. Obama sold you out to the healthcare industry and lied to YOU, telling you you would benefit when the only benefit was to the industry his wife Michelle worked in.

It Was A Mistake When Obama Said 'Make No Mistake"
I really think it's gotten to the point where Obama can say anything he wants and nobody really believes him anymore.
Former White House Senior Adviser David Axelrod said on Sunday it was a mistake for President Barack Obama to say that his policies are on the ballot this fall.
Appearing on NBC's "Meet the Press," Axelrod said that if he were still an Obama adviser he would not have included the line in the president's speech last week in which Obama said: "I'm not on the ballot this fall... but make no mistake, these policies are on the ballot -- every single one of them."
"It was a mistake," Axelrod said. (Source)

Oh No We Didn't Underestimate The threat
Or why James Clapper should be fired!
ISW has predicted the rise of the Islamic State since 2012. Read our forecasts here.(pdf)
The Institute for the Study of War (ISW) provides accurate geostrategic forecasts and advanced warning of growing threats. ISW analysts have accurately forecasted the political fragmentation of Iraq and the return of al Qaeda in Iraq (AQI), now the Islamic State of Iraq and al-Sham (ISIS), since 2011. ISW analysts have correctly predicted the origins, pathways, methods, and aims of ISIS’s return.
ISW conducts strategic forecasting as a core intellectual contribution to foreign policy. ISW’s leaders believe that strategic surprise can be averted by monitoring the trajectories of complex problems over time, even from unclassified information. Over the last 18 months, ISW has published a number of forecasts that anticipated the resurgence of AQI, the devolution of the Iraqi Security Forces, and the emergence of the ISIS campaign to control territory inside Iraq and Syria. This document is a compilation of forecasts made by ISW’s analysts that have come true. Strategic forecasting does not presume that complex situations will always unfold as predicted. ISW strives to apply concrete knowledge of the present in order to deliver insight about the future. ISW hopes that this policy makers can use these insights in order to take a proactive rather than a reactive posture to emerging crisis situations and prevent their escalation.Except that the guy doing the firing was also the one who directed him to say a lot of stupid stuff. I mean canning Clapper without Canning his boss is just, you know, pissing into the wind.
Or the President could just read Jawa Report.
A Google search for the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, starting in Jan 2012 and ending in December 2013 yields over 10 pages of results.

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.

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.

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 ...
