U.S. needed Iraqi foothold that prez abandoned

Boston Herald  ...." Now imagine the world today — the exploding Egypt, sarin-gas Syria, bombs-in-Benghazi world — if Obama had treated Iraq the way America treated Germany, Japan and Korea. Imagine the Middle East with a fully functioning U.S. military base on the border of Iran and Syria, able to project power right on Bashar Assad and the ayatollahs’ doorsteps.
"Alas, we can only imagine …
"Syria, as bad as it is, isn’t even close to the greatest foreign policy failure of the Obama administration. It’s a symptom of Obama’s abandonment of the region. And the high (low?) point of that policy was Obama’s decision to abandon the moderate, pro-Western citizens of Iraq to the extremists."
 

Soldiers of Allah, Not America

How many more Nidal Hasans are in our military ranks?

Michelle Malkin "A military jury sentenced unrepentant Fort Hood jihadist Nidal Hasan to death on Wednesday. But if another murderous Muslim soldier’s case is any indication, Hasan may be sitting in the catbird seat for years to come. And our men and women in uniform will remain endangered by Islamic vigilantes in their own ranks.
"Remember Sergeant Hasan Akbar? On March 23, 2003, this hate-filled soldier with the 326th Engineer Battalion lobbed stolen hand grenades and shot his M-4 automatic rifle into three tents filled with sleeping commanding officers at the 101st Airborne Division’s 1st Brigade operations center in Kuwait."....

"Political correctness is an American soldier of Allah’s best friend."

‘AMATEUR HOUR’: Krauthammer slams Obama’s sudden decision to delay Syria strike (UPDATED)

Daily Caller
"Immediately following his statement from the Rose Garden on Saturday, which President Barack Obama said he would delay a strike on Syria until seeking authorization from Congress, Washington Post columnist Charles Krauthammer took to Fox News to slam the president.
"Krauthammer criticized Obama for the way he has handled the unfolding of events surrounding the crisis in Syria.
“' [T]he most astonishing thing is the lack of any urgency,” Krauthammer said. “As you say, Congress will be back in a week. He says, ‘I can strike in a day or a week or a month,’ as if he is a judge handing down a sentence and the execution can be any time in the future. There is a war going on. Do you think everybody is going to hold their breath, hold their arms, step aside until Obama decides when he wants to go to Congress?".... 


UPDATE: Obama seeking political cover by asking for a Congressional vote on Syria intervention   "Syria is already crowing about a victory, and it must be admitted that Obama has lost face throughout the Middle East and the world. As has the United States of America, so long as he occupies the Oval Office. The influence, especially the deterrence the United States is able to exercise has been diminished. Obama's ill-considered red line has already cost the United States dearly."..

2 Million Bikers to DC

'Million Muslim March' tries Hijack of '2 Million Bikers to DC' Rally
"While the "Million Muslim March on DC" has fueled a wide range of US reactions, major event organizers for a rival US protest group were treated to a rather remarkable episode of infiltrative subterfuge from both the Million Muslim March group and its stealthy media disciples behind the scenes."

"[Belinda] Bee may be right, in fact, as she points to the Muslim practice of "Taqiyya", which in shi'ia Islam means to subvert or hide the truth in order to further the aims of Islam."

Jordan – Our Next Ally Sold Out?

Rabid Republican Blog 
"By now most thinking people understand Obama’s game. He’s squarely on the side of [or in the midst of] the Muslim Brotherhood.  One-by-one the countries of the Middle East are being taken down,  essentially handed over intact – to the MB.
"Israel – “the illegal occupiers– is slowly being surrounded. Jordan is needed for this conquest,  and Abdullah will not go along.  Watch the news America – and observe how it plays out."

Reading list on Obama's Syrian conundrum

130829redline-obama-syria-cartoon
Syria Red Line  ...."Anyway, It looks like Assad has jumped the Red Line. Now we have to respond or lose credibility and, according to the polls, the American people have no stomach for another war."
 
Commentary Mag; About That Special Relationship  "Some are fretting about whether the special relationship that has bound the United States and the United Kingdom since World War II has been damaged by the House of Common’s vote against British participation in Syria and Prime Minister’s David Cameron’s decision to accept the Commons’ verdict. The New York Times’ Roger Cohen, who has been writing from the UK for some time now, says in his column today that “Britain’s decision not to stand with the United States, its closest ally, in possible military action to punish the Syrian regime for a deadly chemical weapons attack marks a watershed moment that leaves the ‘special relationship’ in search of meaning and Britain in search of its role in the world.”
Obama should have kept that bust of Winston Churchill.
Political Cartoons by Steve Breen
Caroline Glick; Obama's bread and circuses  ...."The most important of those questions are: What US interests are at stake in Syria? How should the US go about advancing them? What does Syria's use of chemical weapons means for the US's position in the region? How would the planned US military action in Syria impact US deterrent strength, national interests and credibility regionally and worldwide? Syria is not an easy case. Thirty months into the war there, it is clear that the good guys, such as they are, are not in a position to win."

Jennifer Rubin; 10 things you need to know about Kerry’s remarks
"Secretary of State John Kerry just delivered a compelling case for military action against
Iraq Syria. Here is what you need to know:"....
Reason number eight was my personal favorite:
On a personal level this is tremendous vindication for the Bush administration and those who were vilified. It turns out unilateral action based on a combination of humanitarian and strategic based on intelligence about WMD use is justified. That said, the difference may be that George W Bush did something about it and Kerry’s boss, who won’t come out of the witness-protection program, isn’t likely to remove Bashar al-Assad in the way Bush took out Sadaam Hussein.
From Germany; Humanitarian Aid Is Possible
"It is most unfortunate that Obama has pushed himself into a corner with his talk of a “red line.” Getting himself out of this situation will come with heavy consequences: He will be publicly portrayed as a toothless tiger."
 
 “Anything that happens in this area is in Israel’s interest. Such aggression will first of all benefit Israel, secondly, the military efforts of Al Nusra, al Qaeda’s armed group in Syria. “So the Americans would be serving Israel first and Al Qaeda second.”
Mark SteynPerfunctory and ineffectual war-making in Syria is worse than nothing.
I see the Obama “reset” is going so swimmingly that the president is now threatening to go to war against a dictator who gassed his own people. Don’t worry, this isn’t anything like the dictator who gassed his own people that the discredited warmonger Bush spent 2002 and early 2003 staggering ever more punchily around the country inveighing against. The 2003 dictator who gassed his own people was the leader of the Baath Party of Iraq. The 2013 dictator who gassed his own people is the leader of the Baath Party of Syria. Whole other ball of wax.

Shamed into War

Charles Krauthammer

 If Obama is going to strike Syria, he should do it constitutionally and with purpose.

"Having leaked to the world, and thus to Syrian president Bashar Assad, a detailed briefing of the coming U.S. air attack on Syria — (1) the source (offshore warships and perhaps a bomber or two), (2) the weapon (cruise missiles), (3) the duration (two or three days), (4) the purpose (punishment, not “regime change”) — perhaps we should be publishing the exact time the bombs will fall, lest we disrupt dinner in Damascus.

"So much for the element of surprise. Into his third year of dithering, two years after declaring Assad had to go, one year after drawing — then erasing — his own red line on chemical weapons, Barack Obama has been stirred to action."
 


The Pros and Cons of Attacking Syria  "PJ Media's columnists weigh in on intervening in Syria as the Obama administration decides how to respond to the use of chemical weapons. Updated: Michael Ledeen, Victor Davis Hanson and Roger Kimball provide their analyses."
It’s pointless to take potshots at Obama for failing to act on Syria. What we should say is this: “Iran is the main source of instability in the Middle East. Iran’s intervention in Syria has turned the country into a slaughterhouse. By showing weakness to Iran, the Obama administration encourages its murderous activities elsewhere in the region.”

Obama Perpetuates Racial Dissonance

Intellectual Conservative  "What bothers me more than anything is that people who don't know any more than I do, feel they have a right to protest so-called injustice through looting, vandalism and violence as revenge directed toward the innocent."

Big Hollywood on Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus' Sexual Act a Far Cry from Days When Music Mattered
"And I will still offer that, based on the VMAs, with the exception of a few outcroppings of talent, the lunar landscape of quality music is pretty barren. Music as a pop art expression has been replaced with prancing divas, thug rappers, coiffed boy bands or barely legal teen angels whose sexual aggression make this father of an adolescent girl cringe.

Miley Cyrus Grabs Crotch Anew for Promotional Photos    ...."The 20-year-old, who has taken to copying Madonna and Rihanna's favoured crotch grabbing move, tries her hand at it again in one shot, where she makes the lewd gesture in a pair of  PVC black and white checked trousers and a white crop top, in front of a neon Bangerz sign. "

"Cyrus exposes part of her behind in another photograph and flashes her thong underwear in another."

Camille Paglia: Miley Cyrus 'Cringingly Unsexy'  "Critic Camille Paglia says the problem with Miley Cyrus' performance at Sunday's VMAs wasn't that it was “Disgusting!” “Raunchy!” Desperate!” as some reviews would have it. The real concert is that the untalented Cyrus doesn’t understand that sexual eroticism without limits that make that eroticism titillating is pointless."

Obama's rhetoric comes up short compared to past presidents

Ed Lasky  "When a President wants to put adversaries on notice, he and his team members should not preemptively tip their hands or display their weakness.
"The Obama administration does both (as well as reveal our secrets and plans) time and time again.
"What a great commander-in-chief."

Nation’s only black Senator not invited to speak at March on Washington

Tim ScottRed Alert Politics    "Noticeably absent from the speaker line-up at the Let Freedom Ring event commemorating the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington today: the nation’s only black Senator, Tim Scott.  .... was not invited to participate in the historic event, a spokesperson for the Senator confirmed to Red Alert Politics in an email.
"African-American leaders who did receive an invitation to speak at included Rep. John Lewis (D-Ga.) – who participated in the original March – Martin Luther King III, MSNBC host Al Sharpton and movie stars Jamie Foxx, Oprah Winfrey and Forest Whitaker.
Update: Talking Points Memo is reporting that a source involved in planning the March on Washington says Scott wasn’t invited because he declined to attend the event as a spectator.

 

The Good: Health Care Premiums Will Drop or Stay Same Under Obamacare – The Bad: If You Make Less Than $20K Per Year…

Weasel Zippers  "Apparently the only way to benefit from Obamacare is to live near the poverty line."
Via National Journal:
Whether the quality of care in the new market is comparable to private offerings remains to be seen. But one thing is clear: The cost of care in the new market doesn’t stack up. A single wage earner must make less than $20,000 to see his or her current premiums drop or stay the same under Obamacare, an independent review by National Journal found. That’s equivalent to approximately 34 percent of all single workers in the U.S. seeing any benefit in the new system. For those seeking family-of-four coverage under the ACA, about 43 percent will see cost savings. Families must earn less than or equal to $62,300, or they, too, will be looking at a bigger bill.

Barack Obama uses the March on Washington to attack his opponents. This man is shameless

 
UK Telegraph  "Barack Obama's speech on the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington was classic Obama: beautifully delivered, moving, deceptive, divisive, frustrating. And, of course, it was far more about Barack Obama than it was Martin Luther King Jr."
....
"And you wonder why Republicans won't deal with this President? He uses a day that ought to be marked by national unity as an opportunity to deliver a stump speech, even though he's not running for election..... Are we here to celebrate America's genius or damn its failures?

It's Super-Media! With the Power to Detect Non-Existent Racism

Ann Coulter "The media's fixation on the Trayvon Martin case, while ignoring much more brutal crimes with clearer racial motivations, is a return to pre-O.J. America.
"The thesis of my book, "Mugged: Racial Demagoguery From the Seventies to Obama" -- out in paperback this week! -- is that after decades of liberals play-acting Racist America, wherein they cast themselves as civil rights champions, and other, random white people as Bull Connor (a Democrat), it all ended with the O.J. verdict.
"That's when white America said, That's it. The white guilt bank is shut down. It was one of the best things that ever happened to America -- especially for black people."

The Naming of Leftist Catastrophes

FreedomWorks  "This week, a global warming climate change alarmist group decided it would be great fun to petition the World Meteorological Organization to start naming violent storms after prominent deniers of their theory, despite a complete lack of evidence that violent storms are any more numerous today than in other years: "[W]e propose a new naming system, one that names
extreme storms caused by climate change, after the political makers who deny climate change and obstruct climate policy.” Well, since the foolhardy pursuit of solutions to this myth, among many others, has caused countless economic and environmental catastrophes, let's turn the tables and name Leftist catastrophes, both economic and environmental, after the prominent progressives who have caused such widespread destruction and suffering."

California pols could target tax status of Boy Scouts, youth groups over 'discrimination'

Joshua Rhett Miller

"California lawmakers are cruising toward a final vote on a bill that could threaten the tax-exempt status of American-as-apple-pie groups — ranging from the Boy Scouts to Little League — if their membership policies are found to be discriminatory. 
"If passed, the bill, SB 323, would remove an exemption from state taxes for any nonprofit youth group that discriminates on the basis of “gender identity, race, sexual orientation, nationality, religion, or religious affiliation.” Well-known organizations like Girl Scouts of the USA, Boy Scouts of America, and Little League International Baseball and Softball were cited in the bill, which was introduced in February by Democratic state Sen. Ricardo Lara." 

MSNBC ratings down double digits

American Thinker  "It appears that even liberals can't stomach the relentlessly partisan slant of MSNBC news coverage, where the president is hyped, his initiatives dutifully praised, and Republicans predictably bashed. Their on air personalities are shrill, their political analysis so banal, it elicits somnolence in most viewers. About the only thing the network has going for it is the untentional hilarity that ensues when the hosts try to turn some Obama failure into a roaring success.
"Can't wait for their coverage of Obamacare rollout next month."

 Maddow's Dishonest Scare Parade on NC Voting  "Last night the great David Webb filled in for Sean Hannity on Fox News. Webb put on Allen West and Juan Williams to talk about urban malaise. The visuals at Fox must have been too much for Rachel Maddow, because she put up an hour-long show designed to scare people about voting rights. Her already small audience might have been even smaller otherwise."

Martin Luther King Jr. celebration fifty years later

La Raza Uses MLK’s “I Have A Dream” Speech Anniversary To Push For Amnesty…
CAIR To Link “Islamophobia” To Civil Rights Movement…
“ 'Islamophobia … is just the latest manifestation of the same intolerance faced by Dr. King and other civil rights leaders of his time,” CAIR Executive Director Nihad Awad said in a statement. “Like other forms of intolerance, Islamophobia is a threat to our nation’s values and to the social tapestry that continues to draw people to our shores from every nation on earth.' ”

Yet another racism hoax revealed  "But instead, because it is invariably progressives who launch these hoaxes because they just "know" that the racism is out there and want to "illustrate" it, too often the penalties for these crimes are light or nonexistent."

Obama: My speech won't be as 'good' as MLK's But it will be all about Barack Obama.
""We honor them not by giving another speech ourselves — because it won't be as good — but instead by just doing the day-to-day work to make sure this is a more equal and more just society."
"The president also said in the interview that King would have approved of his signature health care law."

The most magnificent thing about Martin Luther King’s 1963 speech was its faith in the American Dream – a dream that today’s radicals laugh and sneer at      "Not for King any mocking of the founding fathers of America, who have in recent years been judged by radical Leftists to have been racist and evil (in the words of The Nation magazine just last month, Thomas Jefferson was a “slave-owning rapist”). Instead, King extolled the “magnificent words of the Constitution and the Declaration of Independence” and talked about all men’s “inalienable rights of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness”."

Miley Cyrus and American culture

 Victor Davis Hanson; An American Satyricon   "Transvestitism and sexual ambiguity are likewise Petronian themes; in our day, the controversy rages over whether convicted felon Bradley Manning is now a woman because he says he is. The politically correct term “transgendered” trumps biology; and if you doubt that, you are a homophobe or worse. As in the Roman Satyricon, our popular culture also displays a sick fascination with images of teen sex. So how does one trump the now-boring sexual shamelessness of Lady Gaga — still squirming about in a skimpy thong — at an MTV awards ceremony? Bring out former Disney teenage star Miley Cyrus in a vinyl bikini, wearing some sort of huge foam finger on her hand to simulate lewd sex acts."

Parents Television Council Condemns VMA Awards, Calls for End of Bundled Cable   "The Parents Television Council, outraged at the sexually acts displayed at Sunday's MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) has called for Congress to pass the Television Consumer Freedom Act of 2013."
 
Miley Cyrus Simply Followed Crude Culture's Marching Orders  "No one is calling for a creative boycott. It's just an example on how little negative effect such a performance can have on a career.
"Cyrus may never earn the "respect" of her more talented peers, but it's clear that's not her goal. Besides, our culture prefers young performers to let it all out hang out rather than let their art speak for them."
 

Race relations in the era of Obama

Black lawmakers lament flaring of racial tensions under Obama  "When President Obama follows in Martin Luther King Jr.’s footsteps on Wednesday with an address at the Lincoln Memorial, he will face a nation where race remains the great divide.

"Black lawmakers say the election of the nation’s first African-America president has not been a salve for racial tensions, a view that the public has also voiced in recent polling."

Colin Powell sprinkles gasoline on racial fires of resentment  "By delegitimizing the judicial system, Powell harms the American social order.  When respect for law declines, brute force tends to become the principal alternative mode of dispute resolution.  "How far he has fallen since his years of honorable service in the United States Army. I used to respect him."

A Discussion On Race, Crime And The Inconvenient Facts  "The racial violence issue in the U.S. just won't go away. Still in the aftermath of Trayvon Martin and George Zimmerman, now it erupts in Oklahoma. A troubling corollary also adheres, though not universally recognized: 
"The racial victimhood industry demonstrably cares little about the facts, for example, in cases such as Martin—Zimmerman. The ultimate legal and factual aspects, therefore, become peripheral to the larger societal issue because the race hustlers have been aggressing regardless of the still-opaque full truth.

If Miley Cyrus really, really, really wanted to shock people...

Iowahawk 
 
 Dear Miley Cyrus:
"We get it already. You’re not a kid anymore. That Teddy Bear-to-porn maven motif at the 2013 MTV VMAs was so unsubtle even the kind of people who like the VMAs couldn’t miss it. Ditto the latex bikini and relentless “twerking.” Besides, you’re belaboring the point. It’s been abundantly clear for some time you killed Hannah Montana and you’re pole-dancing on her grave."....

After MSNBC Broadcasts 20-Minute Sharpton Speech, MSNBC Anchors Fawn Over Him as 'Peerless' Civil Rights Leader of Our Time

Newsbusters  "Does Al Sharpton run MSNBC now? On Saturday, the cable network broadcast hours of live coverage of the Sharpton-organized 50th anniversary of the March on Washington. When Sharpton prepared for his keynote speech on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, his friend Rev. Franklyn Richardson singled him out as “the one who has become the voice of this era.” They broadcast Sharpton’s entire 20-minute speech live.

"When he was finished on stage, MSNBC’s Ed Schultz, Melissa Harris-Perry, and Michael Eric Dyson formed a hallelujah chorus, all praising Sharpton in the same glowing light as the "peerless" and "pre-eminent" civil rights leader of our time, like he was paying everyone’s salary:

HARRIS-PERRY: Joining me now for ongoing coverage of today's events is MSNBC’s Ed Schultz, host of The Ed Show. So nice to have you.
SCHULTZ: A fabulous last hour. A number of different speeches. There's no doubt that Reverend Sharpton is the contemporary civil rights leader of our time.

When the going gets tough, Obama goes golfing

American Thinker  "While his underlings selflessly toil to determine whether or not all the Assad government of Syria used chemical weapons against its own people (as seen on TV), President Obama played a 5 hour round of golf Sunday, closing in on a presidential total of 150 rounds of golf in four and half years. Meanwhile, The Royal Navy is ready for strikes on Syria, should Obama decide that his red line is more than the empty threat it seems to be.

Obama and the Middle East; Rhetoric Running on Empty

Victor Davis Hanson   "The latest disclosure — and the most grave — of the Assad regime’s supposed deployments of chemical weapons puts the West in general and the U.S. in particular in an untenable position."
....
"The president’s rhetorical quiver is empty. After tough talk about boots on the ground and the good war in Afghanistan, deadlines to Iran, and redlines to Syria, all of which proved sorta/kinda pipe dreams, there are no more “make no mistake about/let me be perfectly clear/game-changer/I’m not kidding” arrows. Assad knows that, and the world knows it as well. In other words, another Obama speech will earn guffaws."
....
"All of the above hypotheticals and diplomatic nuances would not matter to a Churchill, Truman, or Reagan. They would size up the humanitarian crisis, grasp the strategic consequences of legitimizing the use of WMD, weigh the prior rhetorical investment of the U.S. in warning against what apparently is now happening, and craft an air strategy that might stop the violence without pulling U.S. ground troops into the mess — and act with dispatch and moral confidence.
"And now? Enough said."

Obama should express condolences for Lane's death, says governor


The Hill  "The silence over Lane's shooting has infuriated conservatives, in light of the extremely vocal stance Obama personally took during the Trayvon Martin shooting.  

"Two of the teenagers involved in Lane’s slaying were black. Conservatives have noted that one of the teens, James Edwards, sent out tweets that he hated white people on his Twitter account.
But Jason Hicks, the district attorney for Stephens County, where Lane was killed, said there was no evidence to treat the case as a hate crime."

"But instead of leaving — as most busy journalists have to do in order to meet their deadlines — I stuck around for two more hours. I introduced myself to more than a dozen of the protesters. And I learned something that I’m sure I wouldn’t have learned had I followed the usual media formula.
"The first thing I learned is these protesters were clueless about the pipeline they were protesting, and about oil and economics in general."

And the press takes these people seriously.

How Responsible Is Obama for the Oklahoma Killing?

 136424 600 Oklahoma Shooting cartoons
How Responsible Is Obama for the Oklahoma Killing?  See also: The Hood Comes to Duncan, Oklahoma
"Ayeee I knocked out 5 woods since Zimmerman court!" young James Edwards tweeted on July 15 in the wake of George Zimmerman's acquittal for the shooting death of Trayvon Martin. Edwards's tweets surfaced after he and two of his homies were charged with killing Australian baseball player Chris Lane in Duncan, Oklahoma, last Friday.

For the record, "woods" is short for peckerwoods, a derogatory term for white people. If Edwards, who is black, knocked out five woods as claimed, he would hardly be unique. As Colin Flaherty chillingly documents in his frequently updated book, White Girl Bleed A Lot, the "knock-out game" has become something of a recreational outlet for bored black youths.
....
"By this time, the White House had access to all the information the Sanford Police Department did.  The courageous step for Obama would have been to defend the Sanford Police Department and to demand an end to the media lynching of George Zimmerman.  As an African American, he had more latitude to do this than a white politician would have.  Instead, he chose to identify fully with the black "victim.' "....
"....As to George Zimmerman and his extended family, still in hiding after a year and a half of death threats, Obama offered not a word of hope or encouragement.  Nor did he rebuke those whose threats forced the Zimmermans into an internal exile."
....
...."Instead, he tacitly encouraged his audience to project their anger and anxiety on to racial scapegoat, George Zimmerman and, indirectly at least, on to other "woods" like Chris Lane.  If nothing else, Lane's killing gives Obama one final chance to set the record straight.  Smart money says he won't do it."

The sources of Obama’s tragic Syria policy

PowerLine   "Caroline Glick presents a powerful indictment of the Obama administration’s foreign policy. Perhaps the most damning part of her indictment pertains to Syria, where Obama’s impotence in the face of Assad’s crossing of a “red line” by engaging in chemical warfare represents a national embarrassment and humanitarian disaster.
"President Obama’s impotence stems from his well-justified fear that intervening against Assad would bring radical Islamists to power. But according to Glick, it is Obama’s fault that radicals have come to dominate the Syrian opposition:"   Ms. Glick's article here.
