Obama Is Putting Americans In Danger

It’s no secret that Obama has implemented a strategy of apology and appeasement to our enemies but the extent of his control over government agencies to lie on his behalf is alarming. Finally, the liberal media outlets are no longer able to ignore the truth about this failed president – if only because their ratings have tanked so badly as they continued to report lies and protect the most inept presidency since Jimmy Carter.

The coverup in Lybia is like nothing we have ever seen in our lifetime as droves of shameful politicians told bold face lie after bold face lie and completely insulted the collective intelligence of the American people.

Obama is a dictator no better than Chavez who is trying to impose his warped view of the world on Americans who are just realizing how horribly destructive this president is as the so-called leader of the free world. This was a TERRORIST attack. Americans were killed in Lybia by TERRORISTS. That’s it. Bottom line. And, there are a bunch of sick people in the White House trying impose their radical fantasy that if you don’t use the word terrorist, then it isn’t true.

The American people deserve better than this and we all need to stand together as we did on 9/11/2001 and get this crazed maniac out of office.

Obama Is No Decisive Leader

Captain Phillips Is Alive Thanks To The Indpendent Decisions of Our Brave Military

Captain Phillips Is Alive Thanks To The Indpendent Decisions of Our Brave Military

This story is from several different sources and I’d like to start it off with a quick glossary:

DEVGRU/NSWC: Development Group/Naval Special Warfare Command
ROE: Rules of Engagement
OSC: on-scene commander
RIB: Rigid Inflatable Boat
BHO: Barack Hussein Obama

BS: bull*#t 🙂

Having spoken to some SEAL pals here in Virginia Beach yesterday and asking why this thing dragged out for 4 days, I got the following:

1. Barack Hussein Obama (BHO) wouldn’t authorize the DEVGRU/NSWC SEAL teams to the scene for 36 hours going against OSC (on scene commander) recommendation.

2. Once they arrived, BHO imposed restrictions on their ROE that they couldn’t do anything unless the hostage’s life was in “imminent” danger

3. The first time the hostage jumped into the sea, the SEALS had the pirates all sighted in, but could not fire due to ROE restriction

4. When the navy RIB came under fire as it approached with supplies, no fire was returned due to ROE restrictions. As the pirates were shooting at the RIB, they were exposed and the SEALS had them all dialed in.

5. BHO specifically denied two rescue plans developed by the Bainbridge CPN and SEAL teams.

6. Bainbridge CPN and SEAL team CDR finally decide they have the OpArea and OSC authority to solely determine risk to hostage. 4 hours later, 3 dead pirates.

7. BHO immediately claims credit for his “daring and decisive” behaviour. As usual with him, it’s BS.

Read the following accurate account.

Philips’ first leap into the warm, dark water of the Indian Ocean hadn’t worked out as well. With the Bainbridge in range and a rescue by his country’s Navy possible, Philips threw himself off of his lifeboat prison, enabling Navy shooters onboard the destroyer a clear shot at his captors and none was taken.

The guidance from National Command Authority, the president of the United States , Barack Obama had been clear: a peaceful solution was the only acceptable outcome to this standoff unless the hostage’s life was in clear, extreme danger.

The next day, a small Navy boat approaching the floating raft was fired on by the Somali pirates and again no fire was returned and no pirates killed. This was again due to the cautious stance assumed by Navy personnel, thanks to the combination of a lack of clear guidance from Washington and a mandate from the commander in chief’s staff not to act until Obama, a man with no background of dealing with such issues and no track record of decisiveness, decided that any outcome other than a peaceful solution would be acceptable.

After taking fire from the Somali kidnappers again Saturday night, the OSC decided he’d had enough.

Keeping his authority to act in the case of a clear and present danger to the hostage’s life, and having heard nothing from Washington since yet another request to mount a rescue operation had been denied the day before, the Navy officer, unnamed in all media reports to date, decided the AK47 one captor had leveled at Philips’ back was a threat to the hostage’s life and ordered the NSWC team to take their shots.

Three rounds downrange later, all three brigands became enemy KIA and Philips was safe.

There is upside, downside, and spin-side to the series of events over the last week that culminated in yesterday’s dramatic rescue of an American hostage.

Almost immediately following word of the rescue, the Obama administration and its supporters claimed victory against pirates in the Indian Ocean and [1] declared that the dramatic end to the standoff put to rest questions of the inexperienced president’s toughness and decisiveness.

Despite the Obama administration’s (and its sycophants’) attempt to spin yesterday’s success as a result of bold, decisive leadership by the inexperienced president, the reality is nothing of the sort. What should have been a standoff lasting only hours, as long as it took the USS Bainbridge and its team of NSWC operators to steam to the location, became an embarrassing four day and counting standoff between a ragtag handful of criminals with rifles and a U.S. Navy warship.

Former Countrywide Executives Profit From Their Crimes

Stanford Kurland, formerly of Countrywide, has a new venture.

Stanford Kurland, formerly of Countrywide, has a new venture.

What do you think would happen if you ran your business with absolute reckless disregard for ethics or the law, with greed as your only motivator?  Would you be able to sleep at night?  What if the government found out?  They could close your business, or worse, send you to jail, right?

Wrong.  The government could simply let you take your money and walk away with no penance so you can start another venture where you’ll profit from your previous illegal/immoral business deals.

Any executive involved in the mortgage meltdown should be banned from profiting in any way from their criminal behavior.  The government should use the bailout money to run this very type of business and let the American taxpayers profit from foreclosed homes and not the serial crooks responsible for toppling the global economy.

The New York Times published an article yesterday about this very scenario, invovling former executives the dirtiest of all lenders in the real estate shell game, Countrywide.  You can read this article in it’s entirety here.

I’m Sorry, Mr. President, You Don’t “Get It”

Obama has promised to hold to account the perpetrators of this financial crisis.  “I know how unpopular it is to be seen as helping banks right now, especially when everyone is suffering in part from their bad decisions,” Obama said. “I promise you – I get it.”

I’m sorry.  You don’t get it.  The fact that you acknowledge ‘everyone is suffering’, yet enact legislation that creates unprecedented inequities for a majority of Americans, proves your ignorance.  Where is the balance?

“I understand that on any given day, Wall Street may be more comforted by an approach that gives banks bailouts with no strings attached, and that holds nobody accountable for their reckless decisions,” Obama stated. “But such an approach won’t solve the problem.”

Please, tell me, Mr. President.  Where is the accountability?  Where are the strings?  Under your current plan, the banks receiving government bailout money are in no way required to assist American taxpayers or to disclose a detailed account of their allocation of taxpayer money.

The Associated Press did some fact checking and published the following this morning:

OBAMA: “We have launched a housing plan that will help responsible families facing the threat of foreclosure lower their monthly payments and refinance their mortgages. It’s a plan that won’t help speculators or that neighbor down the street who bought a house he could never hope to afford, but it will help millions of Americans who are struggling with declining home values.”

THE FACTS: If the administration has come up with a way to ensure money only goes to those who got in honest trouble, it hasn’t said so.

I would like to add the following FACTS:

  • If you are unemployed, you are not eligible.
  • If you are current on your mortgage, you are not eligible (you must be in default)
  • If you have a non-conforming loan (greater than $400+K), you are not eligible.

Can the Obama administration clarify the President’s comments from last night?

You can find the entire “Fact Check” published by the Associated Press here.
