Charles Krauthammer Rips Barack Obama On His Afghan Troop Withdrwal Announcement as “An Act of Personal Narcissism”
I think it is worse than a political act to announce the leaving, its kind of an act of Personal Narcissism.
Charles Krauthammer shredded President Barack Obama on ‘Special Report with Bret Baier’ stating that Obama’s announcement of troop withdrawal in Afghanistan was an act if personal narcissism. Earlier on Tuesday, Obama had announced plans to leave 9,800 U.S. troops in Afghanistan after the formal troop withdrawal at the end of this year. The politician, “Narcissist” in Chief Obama stated that he will bring those troops home in 2016 before the election. Krauthammer went on to say, slamming Obama for announcing a withdrawal in advance …
“When this was talked about a few months ago in the press, there was a mention of the fact that if the full withdrawal happened in 2016, that would allow Obama to leave office having fulfilled the promise to liquidate the wars.
Is that how we are now setting the strategic of the United States of America in a war zone, where so many have died and so much treasure and blood has been spent so that a president can leave office looking good?”
Montel Williams Gives a Passionate Speech on Memorial Day and the War on Veterans that All Should Listen To … I Dont Care About Politics, What I care About Is That This Country Lives Up to Its Obligations to Veterans
KUDOS to Montel Williams …
TV celebrity and US military veteran Montel Williams provided a speech on Memorial Day that all should listen to. He blasted both President Obama and the Congress for not acting on behalf of veterans and their required healthcare. As Montel stated, “I don’t care about politics” … what I care about is that this country live up to its obligations to its veterans. AMEN BROTHER! Williams was referring to the current VA healthcare scandal where individuals were systemically cooking the books to make it appear that veterans were being seen timely on waiting lists.
“Whether you agree with me politically or not, I know you agree with me on this, ” he said. “We can argue about whether we like football or basketball as soldiers or sailors, airmen, marine or coast guardsmen … when it comes time, we never leave a soldier on the battlefield.”
We’re at war,” Williams said, “Guys are still dying. How dare this nation treat us this way.”
Senator Diane Feinstein (D-CA) Calls Benghazi Special Committee: ‘It’s a Hunting Mission for a Lynch Mob”
I think the Democrats protest too much …
On Sunday during CNN’s State of the Union with Candy Crowley, liberal Senator Dianne Feinstein D-CA) called the House Select Committee on Benghazi is “ridiculous.” and said … “I think it’s a hunting mission for a lynch mob.” However, the American people overwhelmingly think different from Di-Fi as 67% support the creation of a Benghazi Special Committee and 51% believe the Obama Administration knowingly lied about blaiming a video tape for the terror attack for political purposes.

For Democrats, its all about protecting Hillary Clinton’s back side at this point for 2016.
FOX News Poll: 67% Support Creation of Benghazi Special Committee … 51% Believe Obama Admin Knowingly Lied About Blaiming Video Tape for Political Purposes
The Obama White House, Hillary Clinton and Democrats are overwhelmingly on the wrong side of the American people when it comes to finding the truth as to what happened in Benghazi and who covered it up.
According to a recent FOX News poll, an amazing 67% believe that a special committee should be created in order to investigate the Obama administrations decisions and activities surrounding the 2012 terrorist attack in Benghazi, Libya that resulted in the death of four Americans, including US ambassador Chris Stevens. This as Barack Obama, former secretary of state Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Nancy Peleosi and the rest of Democrats scoff at the idea of a special committee as a conspiratorial witch hunt. Sorry, but 67% is hardly a minority of people just out to get Obama. The poll also finds that 51% of respondents believe that Obama administration “knowingly lied” about the September 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya “to help the President Obama during his re-election campaign” against Mitt Romney.
Complete FOX News Poll can be seen HERE.
Fully two-thirds of the public endorses the propriety and necessity of forming this select committee, which all but seven House Democrats opposed. Fewer than 30 percent have embraced the official White House line on the matter — and by a 16-point margin, Americans say the Obama administration’s general goal has been to deceive, rather than elucidate the truth, regarding Benghazi.
More numbers lay bare the depth of the public’s cynicism over this entire episode: A majority (51/39) believes Obama’s team “knowingly lied” about the cause of the attack to boost the president’s re-election bid, and a similarly-sized majority (50/40) says Hillary Clinton has been deceitful about the raid. Seventy-two percent of respondents believe the Obama administration bears at least some responsibility for what happened, with another super-majority (68/27) blaming the administration for the fact that nobody has been brought to justice for the assassinations.
Barack Obama White House Told Former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to Lie to American People About Social Security Adding to National Debt
TURBO TAX TIMMY SAYS OBAMA WHITE HOUSE TOLD HIM TO LIE TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE …
In his memoir ‘Stress Test’ former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner says the Obama White House wanted him to mislead and lie to Americans about the long term costs of Social Security on Sunday talk shows. SOUND FAMILIAR? According to Geithner, the White House communications director specifically told him not to say that Social Security contributes to the national deficit in an upcoming appearance on the Sunday morning talk shows, even though he believes it does, because it might inflame and anger the Democratic base. What, say it isn’t so … the Obama Administration wanted their minions to lie to the American people?!? ‘Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, signaling that we [Democrats] intended to protect Social Security. Lies, lies and more lies from the Obama administration that makes everything about politics.
However, before we give Geithner any medals for his truthfulness, maybe he would like to explain why he did not resign? It is a crime what this administration has perpetrated upon the American people. If a Republican presidency had been caught in this many lies and scandals, the MSM would have drummed them out of office.
The White House wanted Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to lie on Sunday talk shows to downplay the part Social Security played in driving the deficit, it was revealed today.
Geithner writes in his memoir Stress Test, out today, that the White House communications director asked him to downplay the long term cost of Social Security spending to mollify the Democratic Party’s base.
‘I remember during one Roosevelt Room prep session before I appeared on the Sunday shows, I objected when Dan Pfeiffer wanted me to say Social Security didn’t contribute to the deficit. It wasn’t a main driver of our future deficits, but it did contribute,’ he says.
‘Pfeiffer said the line was a ‘dog whistle’ to the left, a phrase I had never heard before. He had to explain that the phrase was code to the Democratic base, signaling that we intended to protect Social Security.’
UREAL … How many more lies must the Obama administration be caught in before “We the People” disregard everything that they say?
ABC’s Jon Karl Hammers WH Spokesman Jay Carney On Revisionist Benghazi Talking Points, Susan Rice Interviews & Smoking Gun Email Linked to Obama White House
Baghdad Bob Jay Carney grilled by ABC’s Jon Karl over new explosive emails linking the Obama White House over Benghazi untruthful talking points. Watch Jay twist, turn and spin … What does the Obama administration do when caught in a lie … Lie some more.
In the wake of Judicial Watch gaining a “smoking” email via FOIA lawsuit, the Obama administration is trying to explain away the obvious … they put politics over the death of four Americans, including a US Ambassador, in an attempt to distract from the truth during an election. ABC’s Jon Karl was relentless with WH spin-man Carney and just grilling him on the faux Benghazi talking points. Karl asked Carney why the Rhodes email is only now being made public? Carney actually said that the document (email) was not about Benghazi. Will the MSM finally do their job and go after the Obama administration?
Yup, not a smidgin of coverup in Benghazi whatsoever. What is being overlooked though, as Carney and Karl argue over whether the talking point email had to specifically do with Benghazi, which it did, Hugh Hewitt makes an important point in that every one of the Rhodes email goals, Not “The Truth” Every One Of Four Goals Urges A Lie.
More from Powerline on the absolutely ridiculous answer given by Jay Carney to the White House reporters regarding the email and that it was not about Benghazi.
Carney’s answer is ridiculous. Of course the email bears more broadly on conditions across the Middle East, but it relates most specifically to Benghazi. Why was Susan Rice appearing on every Sunday morning talk show? Because four Americans were killed in Benghazi. Why was the administration’s top political team gathering to prepare her for those appearances? Because four Americans were killed in Benghazi. Why does the email begin with the stated goal of conveying that the Obama administration is doing everything it can to protect its people abroad? Because four Americans were killed in Benghazi. Why is the group talking about “bringing people who harm Americans to justice”? The only place where Americans were harmed was Benghazi. Obviously, the email relates to Benghazi. And equally obviously, its reference to “underscor[ing] that these protests are rooted in an internet video, and not a broader failure of policy” was intended to deflect blame for the deaths of four Americans in Benghazi.
Remember when Barack Obama said in April 17, 2014 about Obamacare, “This thing is working” … then again he also said you could keep your insurance if you liked it.
According to a recent WSJ/NBC poll, Americans could not disagree more with President Obama as an incredible 8% say that Obamacare “is working well the way it is.” 8%!!! Do you realize just how bad something has to be to get 8%? But what else would we expect from a law passed along partisan Democrat lines, which no one read and where Barack Obama, Democrats and their shills in the MSM intentionally lied to the American people that under Obamacare you could keep your insurance if you lied it and you could keep your doctor is you liked them, period!
Take a look Democrats as to what you face in the 2014 midterm elections. Feel like running on Obamacare?
Full poll results HERE.
Obama says, “This thing is working” …
Now the latest edition of the WSJ/NBC poll suggests just how few Americans agree with that statement. A mere 8% of respondents in the new survey say that the Affordable Care Act “is working well the way it is.”
There are differences of opinion on how to respond to the mess Washington has created, but few Americans think it’s time to shut down the debate over the health law. A full 49% say that the law should either be scrapped entirely or given “a major overhaul,” while 40% say the law needs “minor modifications to improve it.”
Mr. Obama’s 44% approval rating lags his 50% disapproval rating. And while 36% of respondents say the health law is a good idea, 46% say it’s a bad idea. Congressional Democrats up for re-election this fall may be especially troubled by these results given that 43% of survey respondents voted for Barack Obama in 2012, versus 34% who voted for Mitt Romney. In the actual 2012 race, Mr. Obama bested Mr. Romney by four percentage points.
Newsbusters points out that shills in the MSM are still trying to spin Obamacare’s poll ratings as a good thing. Chuck Todd tried to spin the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll that shows half of Americans disapprove of Obama as “Improvement” for the Democrat.Hey Chuck, did you see that 8% number? How about the 36% of respondents who said that the health law is a good idea? Or the 54% who disapprove of Obama’s handling of the economy?
Todd argued that “The poll numbers are better, they’re still not good, okay? There is slight improvement on the health care law. And that directly related to slight improvement for President Obama.” Yet, Todd’s own statements don’t hold up to the actual findings of the NBC/WSJ poll.
The Smoking Email: Benghazi Email Documents Point to White House on Misleading Talking Points … White House Deputy Strategic Communications Adviser Ben Rhodes
THE SMOKING BENGHAZI-GATE EMAIL … THEY ARE WHO WE THOUGHT THEY WERE … OBAMA PLAYING POLITICS WITH AMERICANS DYING.
Yup, not a smidgen of deceit, corruption and cover up …
As reported at the Washington Free Beacon, previously unreleased internal Obama administration emails show that there was a coordinated effort made in the days following the Benghazi consulate terror attacks that left four Americans dead, including Ambassador Chris Stevens, to portray the incident as “rooted in [an] Internet video, and not [in] a broader failure or policy.” The documents were gained by Judicial Watch, as result of a June 21, 2013, Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the Department of State. The documents show explicitly that emails sent by senior White House adviser Ben Rhodes to other top administration officials reveal an effort to insulate President Barack Obama from the attacks that killed four Americans. WH adviser Rhodes also sent this email to top White House officials like David Plouffe and Jay Carney just a day before National Security Adviser Susan Rice made her infamous Sunday news show appearances to discuss the attack. Rice would then go on all five Sunday talk shows and lie to America and blame a video regarding what happened in Benghazi to protect Obama politically.
AMERICANS DIED AND OBAMA LIED … How much more proof do you need America to show that the Obama administration purposely and willfully orchestrated the Benghazi attack lies in order to distract the American public from Obama’s foreign policy failures ahead of an election? Usually the cover up is worse than the crime, but in this case four Americans died.
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” and a possible kidnap attempt.
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 Internet video, and not a broader failure or policy.”
Rhodes returns to the “Internet video” scenario later in the email, the first point in a section labeled “Top-lines”:
[W]e’ve made our views on this video crystal clear. The United States government had nothing to do with it. We reject its message and its contents. We find it disgusting and reprehensible. But there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this movie with violence. And we are working to make sure that people around the globe hear that message.
More from The National Review Online:
He wrote that the president and administration “find [the video] disgusting and reprehensible,” but said that “there is absolutely no justification at all for responding to this move with violence.”
Additionally, Rhodes recommended Rice herald President Obama ahead of the upcoming elections.
“I think that people have come to trust that President Obama provides leadership that is steady and statesmanlike,” Rhodes wrote. “There are always going to be challenges that emerge around the world, and time and again, he has shown that we can meet them.”
“Benghazi Emails Show White House Effort to Protect Obama — Staff attempted to insulate president’s policies from criticism ahead of election.” It’s everything that we knew!It’s everything we suspected about Benghazi. And remember, we still don’t know where Obama was for five to seven hours. The president of the United States was off the grid. At five o’clock, in the middle of the attack, the last he says to Hillary and Panetta or whoever it was (paraphrasing), “You guys handle it, take care of it,” and he’s gone. So goes the story.
And now we’ve got these e-mails saying that the White House staff redid the talking points. They massaged everything in order to protect Obama, plausible deniability, to make it appear, running of the election, Obama had no clue what was going on. It was not his policy, this or that. He was not involved. Whatever it took, the White House did. That’s the latest from this release from Benghazi. And, yeah, it’s too late for 2012, but it’s not too late for November this year, folks.
FLASHBACK TO FEB 24, 2014 Interview on Meet the Press … Susan Rice Says She Has No Regrets Over Initial Benghazi Interviews, ‘Patently False’ That I Misled American People.
SNL’s Mocks Obama’s Shilling of Obamacare … Obama Takes Selfies with the Pope and Kisses Justin Bieber on the Lips to Push Healthcare.gov
SNL mocks Barack Obama for his over the top, excessive selling of Obamacare. But then again, hasn’t Obama made a complete mockery of the presidency?
In the final 48 hours before the deadline to sign up for healthcare, Obama’s aides forced him to be photographed in Pharrell’s hat and alongside Kim Kardashian and Harry Styles. And “a cat dressed as Elsa from Frozen.” And BatKid. And the Pope.
Top Obama Adviser Valerie Jarrett Admits Pushing Hollywood Writers to Obamacare into scripts of TV Shows and Movies … Joseph Goebbels Would Be So Proud
UNBELIEVABLE ACTIONS OF OBAMA ADMINISTRATION … ACTUALLY THIS SHOULD BE TERRIFYING TO AMERICANS.
To attract people, to win over people to that which I have realized as being true, that is called propaganda.
In the beginning there is the understanding, this understanding uses propaganda as a tool to find those men, that shall turn understanding into politics.
Success is the important thing. Propaganda is not a matter for average minds, but rather a matter for practitioners. It is not supposed to be lovely or theoretically correct.
I do not care if I give wonderful, aesthetically elegant speeches, or speak so that women cry. The point of a political speech is to persuade people of what we think right. (Joseph Goebbels)
What might be most shocking about the below Valerie Jarrett interview with ‘Top That’ on Pop Sugar.com is that Democrats and especially the Obama Administration does not even hide it anymore that they and the media are the Democrat-Media Complex. White House adviser Valerie Jarrett was out in LA this week meeting with television and movie producers and writers to encourage them to include favorable Obamacare mentions in their scripts. ARE YOU KIDDING!!! A government going to the media to shill their agenda for script and product placement to make it appear that they are mainstream and brainwash the people with propaganda. This is still the United States, is it not?
“That’s the cool thing,” a host said to the presidential advisor. “You’ve been reaching out to people that are, you know, outside of the norm of what the president might work with. Who else are you working with? Like celebrities, personalities, things like that?”
“You name it,” said Jarrett. “That’s part of why I’m in L.A. I’m meeting with writers of various TV shows and movies to try to get it into the scripts.” When Jarrett says “it into the scripts,” she’s referring to getting references to Obamacare, the president’s signature legislation, into the scripts of TV shows and movies.
Joseph Goebbels, Nazi Minister of propaganda, would be so proud of Valerie Jarrett’s actions.
Control of the arts and media was not just a matter of personnel. Soon the content of every newspaper, book, novel, play, film, broadcast and concert, from the level of nationally-known publishers and orchestras to local newspapers and village choirs, was subject to supervision by the Propaganda Ministry, although a process of self-censorship was soon effectively operating in all these fields, leaving the Ministry in Berlin free to concentrate on the most politically sensitive areas such as insuring that both major newspapers, and the new far-reaching, instantaneous state radio presented the unified Nazi worldview. In his 1933 speech, “Radio as the Eighth Great Power” Goebbels said:
“We .. intend a principled transformation in the worldview of our entire society, a revolution of the greatest possible extent that will leave nothing out, changing the life of our nation in every regard …
The following are Joseph Goebbels’ quotes. It would be pretty difficult to tell whether they were from the Nazi minister of propaganda, or Team Obama:
- “Think of the press as a great keyboard on which the government can play.” (Joseph Goebbels)
- “It is the absolute right of the State to supervise the formation of public opinion.” (Joseph Goebbels)
