Obama’s Policies to Empower ISIS Exposed

 

Family Security Matters

For months, many Western observers have been closely following the minute-by-minute developments concerning the battle between Islamic State and coalition forces in the hopes that such data will help them discern what the future may hold.

Yet knowledge of the end game has been available for anyone viewing the Obama administration with the eyes of a hedgehog, not a fox.

In an article published over seven months ago, I anticipated the main developments to have taken place since U.S. President Obama declared war (i.e., “airstrikes”) on the Islamic State in September, 2014.  Titled “Does Obama Need ‘Time to Defeat or Forget ISIS?”  I made the following predictions, all of which have come true, and in the same sequence:

Several Players From 1972 Dolphins Refusing To Attend White House Ceremony Because of Obama’s Policies…

Weasel Zippers

Love it.

(CNSNews.com) – The White House said Monday that it is not disappointed that some members of the 1972 Miami Dolphins have decided not to attend a White House ceremony Tuesday that honors them 41 years after they won the Super Bowl.

“No. People are certainly allowed to make whatever decision they’d like to make on that,” White House principal deputy press secretary Josh Earnest said when asked whether the White House was disappointed that several members of the team won’t appear with President Barack Obama because of political differences.

Hall of Famer Jim Langer told the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, “We’ve got some real moral compass issues in Washington.”

“I don’t want to be in a room with those people and pretend I’m having a good time. I can’t do that. If that [angers] people, so be it,” Langer said.

Manny Fernandez told the paper, “I’ll just say my views are diametrically opposed to the President’s.

“Enough said. Let’s leave it at that. I hope everyone enjoys the trip who goes,” Fernandez added.

Bob Kuechenberg, a former offensive lineman for the Dolphins, said, “I want to be careful, because mom said if you have nothing good to say about someone, then don’t say anything.”

“I don’t have anything good to say about someone,” Kuechenberg said. “I just don’t believe in this administration at all. So I don’t belong. Anyone on the left or the right has to respect one man’s opinion.”

“I don’t belong there, I’ll tell you that,” Kuechenberg added. “Without being critical, I can just tell you I don’t belong. It would be hypocritical of me to be there. I don’t want to do that. I just don’t believe in this administration at all. So I don’t belong. Anyone on the left or the right has to respect one man’s opinion.”

10 Things That Would Be Happening Today If Obama’s Policies Were Working

Townhall

Barack Obama has “already held more re-election fundraising events than every elected president since Richard Nixon combined.” Yet, despite the fact that he has been campaigning almost non-stop since the 2010 election, aside from trying to steal credit from the SEALs for killing Osama Bin Laden, you very seldom hear Obama talk about his record. This is especially noteworthy because like him or hate him, Obama has passed a lot of legislation.

So, if Barack Obama has such an extensive record, why is it that Republicans are the ones that are always talking about it while Obama tries to steer the conversation to anything else? Simple: Obama is a failed President.

President Incompetent

American Thinker
Whether or not you support President Obama’s policies, one thing is becoming increasingly obvious: he simply lacks competence. The best indicator of this is his in effectiveness in accomplishing any of his own objectives. His first year in office resembles a quarterback who never completes a pass. His list of failures is all too familiar-health care reform, closing Guantanamo, cap-and-trade, and so on. He has failed to accomplish any of his self-identified top priorities. Other than getting himself elected, he appears to have a very limited range of abilities.
For conservatives the president’s incompetence is a mixed blessing. Conservatives are breathing sighs of relief that health care reform and cap-and-trade have crashed and burned. For his supporters his ineffectiveness must be painful to watch.
Nevertheless, the fact that the most powerful man in the world is incompetent is not a good situation. Unfortunately, he is in a position to do major damage and has, in fact, already done so. His poorly conceived economic policies have unnecessarily prolonged and deepened the recession. His foreign policy missteps have jeopardized our national security.
The frequency of the apologies and backtracks the president and his cabinet have had to make demonstrates that they don’t seem to think before they speak or act. The president likes to make promises but seems to have no serious intention to actually deliver on them. Almost immediately after taking office he promised to close Guantanamo. Doing so is obviously a much more complicated and difficult undertaking than he envisioned. As George H. W. Bush discovered, there’s no such thing as a free promise. His broken promise not to raise taxes cost him a second term.
Mr. Obama is also ineffective in helping fellow Democrats win elections. Unless his success rate improves, he will earn the title of “the biggest loser.” Democrat candidates this year may well be telling him, “thanks but no thanks.”
The president is not a good strategist. He is not a good judge of probabilities. He has a tendency for picking fights he has little or no chance of winning. It almost appears that he likes losing.
Competence is mainly an issue for leaders of democratic countries. A dictator does not necessarily need to worry about it. A dictator gets things done through brute force, which is also the way he maintains his power. The citizenry pays a price for his incompetence, but the dictator does not.
Mr. Obama has surrounded himself with similarly incompetent personnel. Ann Coulter has described Joe Biden as “Obama’s assassination insurance.” A president’s press secretary is his public spokesman and primary interface with the press. You have to wonder what possessed him to hire someone like Robert Gibbs for that position. Mr. Gibbs is not an impressive persona, to put it mildly. Numerous other cabinet members have also been an embarrassment.
Most of Mr. Obama’s supporters have yet to admit that he is incompetent. It’s becoming increasingly obvious, however, and they can’t be happy with his lack of results. The evidence of his incompetence is bound to accumulate further, and denial will be increasingly hard to maintain.
If anyone is surprised by Mr. Obama’s incompetence, you would have to wonder why. When he was running for the presidency, on what basis would anyone have assumed that he was competent? He had about the thinnest resume of anyone who had ever run for the office, with virtually zero executive experience. He really was the “hope” candidate, elected by voters relying on hope rather than evidence or common sense.
Election results in New Jersey, Virginia, and Massachusetts demonstrate that many voters are suffering buyers’ remorse. Unfortunately they have three years left on an unbreakable purchase contract.
What is the probability that Mr. Obama will “grow in office” and develop competence? It’s not high. After the president had gratuitously trashed his city for the second time, the mayor of Las Vegas, Oscar Goodman, observed that “the president is a real slow learner.”
Mr. Obama seems to be immune to feedback. He, in fact, brags about his stubbornness and refusal to give up on Obamacare in the face of overwhelming public disapproval and the high cost of prolonging a hopeless endeavor. The change candidate is himself unwilling to change.
Although Mr. Obama’s incompetence will persist, other important corrective steps are already underway. Conservatives are more energized and motivated than perhaps any time in memory. We may very well see a Democrat electoral bloodbath in November. Judging from how much fun Scott Brown’s victory was for conservatives, it could be a time to cherish.
