CNN: Obama doesn’t get to 50% approval … on anything

Hot Air

That analysis comes from CNN’s John King, who notes that Barack Obama has had some, er, problems connecting with the public in his second term. In the poll released yesterday, CNN asked respondents for opinions on twelve issues, and Obama didn’t get to 50% on a single one — but had majority disapproval for all but two:

In fact, his overall approval rating in the CNN series has barely budged from the announcement over a year ago that the IRS had targeted Obama’s political opponents in Tea Party organizations. It’s also about the same time that whistleblowers emerged to dispute the White House/State Department narrative on Benghazi, too. At that point, CNN had Obama’s job approval rating at 53/45, roughly where it had been since his re-election. It hasn’t been above 45% since.

Only on environmental policy did Obama register a positive reaction, but it’s mighty thin at 49/45. He scored 49/49 on terrorism, but most of the poll was conducted before Americans found out that Obama released five of the most dangerous Taliban figures from Guantanamo Bay — and did so illegally. Don’t expect that number to remain balanced for long, in other words. On issues closer to the midterm focus, Obama performs abysmally:

  • Economy – 38/61, down from 43/56 in September
  • Health care – 36/63, was 42/55
  • Foreign affairs – 40/57, same
  • Helping the middle class – 40/58, was not asked in September
  • The VA – 37/58 (new)
  • Ukraine – 38/53 (new)

The economy will be the real danger area for Democrats in the midterms, especially those running in red and purple states, and so will health care. Those are the top two issues respondents named for the most important issue in the country, 40% and 19% respectively — and they used to be Democratic Party strengths. The White House wants to talk about the environment and immigration, but neither of them even reach double digits on the priority list CNN gets from its survey.

This is the price of incompetence, and this was before the Bergdahl disaster. It’s left the White House and its Democrat allies no room to pivot anywhere. As King and his panel conclude, it’s not so much disagreement on the issues as it is a vote of no confidence in the man who’s implementing them.


Barack Hussein Obama Legacy: Enemy to Humankind

Gulag Bound


In essence, Obama didn’t release 5 Islamic terrorists. It appears that he freed 6.


There are so many crimes committed by Obama and his syndicate that choosing a few for any column is–almost–a monumental task. For example, Obama does not uphold many US laws…if he doesn’t like them. In most Presidential Administrations this–in itself–would be considered a crime. In the Obama syndicate, however, it isn’t even a blip on the country’s radar…and certainly not worthy of the now Marxist Media’s attention.

Actually, almost no crime committed by Dictator-in-Chief Obama and his growing criminal syndicate appears to attract much interest–at all–from the traditional (aka totalitarian-supporting) US media. The only thing important to the media has been protecting one of their own–Obama–whom they view as being a Marxist; something the American press has strangely loved for decades and who will destroy the golden goose USA that has allowed them to spew their bile. Note: On the Left, stupidity seems to have no perceptible boundaries.

Obama admits: it’s ‘absolutely’ possible that released prisoners may attack us again

Free Republic

OK, sure. We released some really bad guys as part of President Obama’s illegal deal with the Taliban. But, hey, don’t worry. None of these guys will ever be rejoining their terrorist organizations, and none of them will ever pose a threat again. Right?


According to none other than President Obama, it’s entirely possible that the five recently released prisoners will attack us again – once the homecoming parties die down, of course.

The President made the claimed this morning during a press conference in Poland:

“In terms of potential threats, the release of the Taliban who were being held in Guantanamo was conditioned on the Qataris keeping eyes on them and creating a structure in which we can monitor their activities. We will be keeping eyes on them.

Is there the possibility of some of them trying to return to activities that are detrimental to us? Absolutely. That’s been true of all the prisoners that were released from Guantanamo – there’s a certain recidivism rate that takes place.

I wouldn’t be doing it if I thought that it was contrary to American national security, and we have confidence that we will be in a position to go after them if in fact they are engaging in activities that threaten our defenses.

But this is what happens at the end of wars.

That was true for George Washington, that was true for Abraham Lincoln, that was true for FDR. That’s been true of every combat situation. That at some point, you make sure that you try to get your folks back …and that’s the right thing to do.”

Obama Administration: We Support New Hamas Government – Will Continue to Fund (Another Illegal Move)


Gateway Pundit

The Obama State Department told reporters the US supports the new Hamas-Fatah Palestinian government.
What a surprise.

U.S. law is very clear about aid to Hamas– 
US law bans funding to Hamas-backed governments stretch back to the 2006 Palestinian Anti-Terrorism Act. Recent language from the 2012 approps bill restricts aid from going “to Hamas or any entity effectively controlled by Hamas, any power-sharing government of which Hamas is a member, or that results from an agreement with Hamas and over which Hamas exercises undue influence.”

The Free Beacon reported:

State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki tentatively approved of Palestine’s new unity government Monday, saying “Based on what we know now, we intend to work with this government.”

“But,” Psaki continued, “we’ll be watching closely to ensure that it upholds the principles that President Abbas reiterated today.”

Asked if this means that the U.S. will continue to provide aid to the Palestinian government, she replied “It does. But we will continue to evaluate the composition and policies of the new government and calibrate our approach accordingly.”


Obama Apologizes for Prisoner Swap, Judge Napolitano Says He Should Be Impeached


The Daily Sheeple

The AP has reported that the White House has apologized for not giving key lawmakers advance notice of the controversial Bowe Bergdahl prisoner swap:

Sens. Dianne Feinstein of California and Saxby Chambliss of Georgia, the top Democrat and Republican respectively on the Senate Select committee on Intelligence, said White House officials called them Monday to say the lack of notification had been an oversight. Feinstein said she received a call from Deputy National Security Adviser Tony Blinken.

The White House damage control comes as Republican lawmakers accused the White House of putting U.S. service men and women at risk by releasing the five top Taliban members being held in Guantanamo in exchange for Bergdahl.

An oversight?

How is that possible, when Obama himself signed the 30 day advance notice into law last year?

The Twenty Fifth Amendment & Barack Obama’s Mental Illness


Freedom Outpost

Some days, reading the news produces much frustration, anger and resentment that it is best to leave it lie as the head-shaking, fist-pounding and feet-stamping cause my poor little companion, who is now suffering congestive heart failure, to rise from her sleep, running throughout the house barking incessantly. Not only that, it does my blood pressure no good either and I have excellent blood pressure. What I have concluded from watching this administration and Congress through all their shenanigans is every person in Congress, the Obama administration and the alphabet agency department heads all have a mental disorder. The mental disorders vary, but it is evident in their very actions these people epitomize the phrase, “the patients are running the asylum.”

The main mental disorder coming from the piece of straw occupying the Oval Office is none other than mythomania or psuedological fanstastica. Those are fancy names for habitual pathological liars. According to much of the literature, this disorder, also known as Pathological Lying Disorder, is not included in the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual for Mental Disorders (DSM-IV). However, many psychiatrists and psychologists consider this problem a distinct mental disorder. While mythomania can be a symptom of other mental illnesses, the defining characteristic of mythomania as a separate mental illness is the person cannot help lying even when the lie causes harm. This type of lying is more than a habit, as in compulsive lying, or a “white lie” told to spare someone’s feelings. It is a regular type of lying, without compunction, to achieve a desired goal or outcome.


Take a look at these characteristics of Mythomania and compare them to the innumerable lies told by Obama.

  • the lies often have some element of truth and are not entirely improbable, a manifestation of delusion or psychosis; and if confronted, the individual can, even unwillingly, admit truth;
  • the tendency is long-lasting, unprovoked by social pressure or an immediate situation as it is an innate personality trait;
  • there is a definite internal motive, not external, for the behavior;
  • the fabrications tend to project the liar in a favorable light.

This disorder is more than the covering your backside type that has been witnessed by some in Washington.

Mythomaniacs or pathological liars, lie to get their own way, frequently change their stories and get defensive when asked. These types of individuals care not for the truth as they do not value truth. Of course pathological lying is also a symptom of antisocial personality disorder (psychopath) and narcissistic personality disorder.

If there is any question, I believe Obama is a mythomaniac along with a psychopath, narcissist and a sociopath. Follow the links, take a look at the diagnostic criteria used and come to your own conclusion. Obama has been called a narcissist and a liar, which is true. His personality trait disorders go further than the superficial meaning given to being a narcissist (self-absorbed) and a liar (telling falsehoods). I know. I’m preaching to the choir.

As the old saying goes, “birds of a feather flock together,” so it would make sense that Obama would surround himself with those most like him and those most like him would flock to support him. Ergo, there are plenty of member of Congress who are backing Obama to the hilt and exhibiting the same sort of traits – think Harry Reid, Nancy Pelosi, Dianne Feinstein, along with almost every Democrat in the Senate. It seems the rule of law has gone out the window in Washington. As in antisocial personality disorder, the violations of law by Obama and members of Congress are a typical symptom.

Let’s face facts here. There is a man in the White House who does not need to be leading this country due to his numerous mental disorders. By the same token, there are members of Congress who do not need to be in Congress because of the same mental disorders.

Basically, we have a modern day Hitler in the White House. No psychiatrist or psychologist would dare step up to the plate and call out Hitler as the mentally ill individual he was. It would mean their lives. And I’m sure just as there would have been 10 psychiatrists who would declare Hitler mentally ill, there would have been 10 who thought the man sane. Unfortunately, this is what the United States is facing. And, the excuse of “we were just following what we were told” will be the mantra of those engaged in perpetrating this ruse, just as those on trial in Nuremberg claimed.

What about those in military service? Do you follow someone who is mentally ill because they hold a title superior to yours when evidence is blatant that person suffers from mental illness? As a junior officer can remove a commanding officer for mental compromise or incapacity, should not the same be true of those individuals sitting in Congress or the Presidential office?

When John F. Kennedy was elected in 1960, many had reservations because Kennedy suffered from Addison’s Disease. Kennedy’s doctors denied it, hushed it up and the issue was dropped, but history now divulges the fact that Kennedy suffered from Addison’s disease. The concern stemmed from the moodiness, irritability and depression that is part of the symptoms of Addison’s along with the amount of steroid medication Kennedy was administered daily. Kennedy’s opponents were rightly concerned as any president should be as physically, mentally and emotionally fit and stable as possible due to the nature of the job. One would not want a “hot head” in a position to “push the button” on an nuclear arsenal because the head of a country irked him nor would one want a president who suffered a physical ailment with a symptom of “mental impairment” that would jeopardize decision-making capability or affect mental capacity.

Yes, this man occupying the Oval Office is using the Alinksy playbook along with many other tactics with the “ends justifying the means;” however, disregarding that and looking at the diagnostic criteria of the previously listed mental disorders, one could conclude it takes a person with these mental disorders to increase the exponential rate at which the playbook is implemented to achieve a totalitarian government. The American public should be able to see this; however, the majority of the masses have been bribed with government money, the “special group” they identify with being given elevated status, they refuse to see it or they themselves support totalitarianism.

Many individuals have been denied positions or removed from positions because of being “unfit.” In fact, many mothers have lost their children because someone, rightly or wrongly, declared them “unfit.”

The Difference Between the Real World and Obama’s

Family Security Matters

I keep wondering what it must have been like to be a young student at West Point listening to their Commander in Chief’s platitudes and ignorance wash over them. West Point is where our nation’s future leaders in war receive an education in how to protect the nation by crushing our enemies, if Presidents and Congress will let them.

Unfortunately for them, this President seems to think that climate change is the nation’s biggest enemy and that a loose coalition of Islamic fanatics is the other. There was no talk of an increasingly aggressive China, a Russia that seized Crimea and would like a chunk of the Ukraine, or an Iran that got out from under some strong financial sanctions and will continue to build its own nuclear weapons no matter what Obama and other negotiators may want.
