Barack Obama as Divisive and Clueless as Ever on Labor Day … “If I Were Looking for a New Job … I’d Join a Union”
IT’S TOO BAD BARACK OBAMA WAS NOT LOOKING FOR A NEW JOB NOW …
Barack Obama used Labor Day as yet another opportunity to spew divisiveness and and make a political speech. Barack Obama told a union audience in Wisconsin on Monday that while “Republicans in Congress love to say no,” he is the one who “placed a bet on America’s workers” and would “join a union” if he were looking for a new job. I guess mum was the word as Obama has said “NO” to the XL Keystone Pipeline and the thousands of jobs that would create for Americans, namely union workers. What a feckless, pathetic president who after six years of failure is still blaming others. Obama touted his accomplishments as president as real unemployment in the United States is at between 12.6% and 18%.
What is truly sick, is Barack Obama showed more passion at this union event than he did in his response to ISIS where he had no plan. Obama has done everything to destroy job growth in America as labor unions go along and act as his useful idiots.
CNN – The Divider in Chief was at it again:
The President used the Labor Day gathering of 6,000 union members and their families to herald organized labor’s role in passing the 40-hour work week, overtime pay for workers and a minimum wage. Standing before helmet-clad workers sporting “We Are One” t-shirts, Obama also said he would likely join a union.
“If I were looking for a good job that lets me build some security for my job, I’d join a union,” the President said to raucous applause. “If I were busting my butt in the service industry and wanted an honest day’s pay for an honest day’s work, I’d join a union…I’d want a union looking out for me and if I cared about these things I’d also want more Democrats looking out for me.”
The midterms are important for Democrats and Obama’s legacy. Midterms in a second term are historically bad for the President’s party, and Democrats are facing the prospect of losing the Senate and staying the minority in the House in 2014.
“Republicans in Congress love to say no,” Obama said. “Those are just facts, the facts of life. They say no to everything.”
Barack Obama’s toxic presidency could cost Democrats control of the US Senate in 2014.
In 2008 many Democrats were swept into office on Barack Obama’s coattails like Mark Begich in Alaska, Kay Hagen in North Carolina, Jeff Merkley in Oregon, Al Franken in Minnesota, Jeanne Shaheen in New Hampshire, and Democrat victories in Red states like Max Baucus in Montana, Tim Johnson in South Dakota, Mark Pryor in Arkansas and Mary Landrieu in Louisiana. However, that was then, this is now and 2014 presents the Democrat party with a Barack Obama “no-fly” zone to stay away from Senate races. From Obamamessiah to the toxic president in just 6 short years. Other than going to maybe Minnesota or Oregon, Obama will be a no show in the rest of the states. However, voters do not let that fool you … all of the Democrats above are fully behind Barack Obama’s agenda and have voted for Obamacare and illegal’s getting amnesty. Once the election is over, all of the above Democrat Senators will go right back to doing Obama’s bidding.
In an election that Republicans want to make all about President Barack Obama, the White House is determined to make him all but disappear in the battleground states that matter.
The White House is putting the finishing touches on a post-Labor Day schedule that will send the president to states where he’s still popular, such as: Michigan, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania, Illinois and California, Obama officials and Democratic operatives said this week.
But in the red states that will determine control of the Senate, Obama will remain scarce. That means no personal campaign visits to states like Arkansas, Alaska, Louisiana and North Carolina. He may do some targeted outreach through robocalls, digital ads and conference calls, but the campaign plan is clear: Stay away from candidates he’s already hurting.
Obama’s no-fly zone for certain Senate campaigns reflects the deep concern among Democrats about his drag on the national ticket. Obama can’t seem to get his poll numbers out of the low 40s, he’s struggled through an endless stream of foreign policy crises, and he’s the last person that many candidates want to be forced to defend on the campaign trail.
There are 36 U.S. Senate seats up for election in 2014. Of those seats, 15 are currently held by Republicans and 21 are held by Democrats. The GOP need a net pick up of 6 seats to retain control of the Senate. The control of the Senate will be determined by the below 13 states: 1 incumbent Republican, 1 open Republican, 6 Incumbent Democrat and 5 open Democrat.

King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia Warned the West Will be the Next Target of ISIS Jihadists Unless there is “Rapid” Action
Saudi Arabia’s King Abdullah says the West will be next unless ISIS is dealt with quickly …
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia warns the West of ISIS stating, “If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month.” King Abdullah warned that ISIS jihadists must be dealt with quickly, saying a lack of action would be “unacceptable” in the face of the terrorist phenomenon. Of course I would ask two question. One, what has King Abdullah and Saudi Arabia done to quell ISIS or terrorists and two, take rapid action, doesn’t King Abdullah realize that in Obama, he is talking to a ditherer?
King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia has warned that the West will be the next target of the jihadists sweeping through Syria and Iraq, unless there is “rapid” action.
“If we ignore them, I am sure they will reach Europe in a month and America in another month,” he said in remarks quoted on Saturday by Asharq al-Awsat daily and Saudi-backed Al-Arabiya television station.
“Terrorism knows no border and its danger could affect several countries outside the Middle East,” said the king who was speaking at a welcoming ceremony on Friday for new ambassadors, including a new envoy from Saudi ally the United States.
The Islamic State (IS) jihadist group has prompted widespread concern as it advances in both Syria and Iraq, killing hundreds of people, including in gruesome beheadings and mass executions.
Lack of action would be “unacceptable” in the face of the phenomenon, King Abdullah said.
“You see how they (jihadists) carry out beheadings and make children show the severed heads in the street,” he said, condemning the “cruelty” of such acts.
“It is no secret to you, what they have done and what they have yet to do. I ask you to transmit this message to your leaders: ‘Fight terrorism with force, reason and (necessary) speed’.”

Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) Says President Obama ‘Too Cautious’ on ISIS
Barack Obama, the Ditherer in Chief …
This Sunday on Meet the Press, Senate Intelligence Committee Chair Dianne Feinstein called Barack Obama a ditherer in dealing with ISIS. Host Andra Mitchell asked, “The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years. So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet? The Democrat Senator from California Feinstein’s exact response was, “I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious. Maybe in this instance, too cautious.” In other words, a ditherer.
- to be uncertain or indecisive
- state of indecision
- to act irresolutely; vacillate.
- To be nervously irresolute in acting or doing
ditherer – noun: a person who dawdles or is indecisive, pictorial definition, see Barack Obama.
ANDREA MITCHELL: The fact is, they have been on the march now for months, if not years. So why does the president still say we don’t have a strategy yet? Doesn’t that project weakness from the White House?
DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Well, I mean, I know what you want me to say. But I’m not going to say it in that sense. I think I’ve learned one thing about this president, and that is he’s very cautious. Maybe in this instance, too cautious. I do know that the military, I know that the State Department, I know that others have been putting plans together.
And so hopefully, those plans will coalesce into a strategy that can encourage that coalition from Arab nations, Jordan’s at jeopardy, Lebanon’s at jeopardy, the UAA and other countries are in jeopardy. So there is good reason for people to come together now and begin to approach this as a very real threat, that it in fact is.
ANDREA MITCHELL: The president back in January told The New Yorker magazine, David Remnick, that ISIS is the JV team. That was clearly wrong.
DIANNE FEINSTEIN: Well, I think it’s wrong too. I think it’s a major varsity team. And if you want to use those kinds of monikers. But I see nothing that compares with its viciousness. I’ve been on the intelligence committee now since before 9/11, and I’ve watched this evolution of non-state actors into world terror very carefully and closely.
And this is really the first group that has the wherewithal in terms of financing, the fighting machine in terms of a structure– a heavy equipment, heave explosives, the ability to move quickly, I mean, they crossed the border into Iraq before we even knew it happened. So this is a group of people who are extraordinarily dangerous. And they’ll kill with abandon

British Prime Minister David Cameron Warned that his County is Facing the “Greatest Terrorist Threat” in history … UK Raises Terror Threat Level, Citing Risks out of Syria and Iraq
HEY AMERICA, TAKE A LOOK HOW A REAL LEADER REACTS TO A TERROR THREAT …
British Prime Minister conducted a press conference at 10 Downing Street to do what US President Barack Obama could not, be a leader and put into perspective the terror threat that ISIS poses to the UK and the world. PM David Cameron stated, that while the “Taliban facilitated al-Qaida terrorism, the Islamic State group is “effectively a state run by terrorists ” and their ambition to create an Islamist caliphate is not something that could be ignored. Juxtapose that with Obama who underestimated ISIS as they “jayvee” and stated the other day that “we do not have a strategy” to deal with ISIS.
Britain raised the country’s terror threat level from substantial to severe just before Cameron held his news conference. The threat level means a terrorist attack is considered highly likely. Cameron warned that the return of hundreds of murderous extremists posed a greater threat to our security than Al Qaeda or the IRA ever did. Cameron further went on to say that Islamist terrorists cannot be ‘appeased’ and need to be faced down. Where was Obama, at a fund raiser of course.
The UK government raised its terror threat level Friday from “substantial” to “severe,” the fourth highest of five levels, in response to events in Iraq and Syria, where ISIS militants have seized a large swath of territory.
“That means that a terrorist attack is highly likely, but there is no intelligence to suggest that an attack is imminent,” Home Secretary Theresa May said.
The “root cause” of Britain’s terror threat is “Islamist extremism,” Prime Minister David Cameron said. The execution of American journalist James Foley is clear evidence that ISIS’s fight in Iraq and Syria “is not some foreign conflict thousands of miles from home that we can hope to ignore,” according to the UK leader.
Just curious, when was the last time or any time that you would ever hear the following words out of Barack Obama’s mouth when it came to discussing American values, protecting American values and standing up for American values? During David Cameron’s speech he said the following:
Britain is an open, tolerant and free nation. We are a country that backs everyone community who want to work hard, make a contribution and build a life for themselves and their family. But we cannot stand by and allow our openness be confused with the tolerance of extremism. Or one that encourages different cultures to lead separate lives and allows people to behave in ways that run completely counter to British values. Adhering to British values is not an option or a choice, it is a duty of those who live in these islands. And in the end, it is only by standing up for these values that we will defeat this extremism, protect our way of life and keep our people safe.
WHEN IT ALL ENDS OBAMA WILL BE THE WORST PRESIDENT IN AMERICAN HISTORY …
According to the most recent Gallup poll, Barack Obama’s “strongly disapproval” rating is more than double that of his “strong approval” one. Republicans have gone from 58% strongly disapprove in 2009 to 75% strongly disapprove in 2014. However, the real story may be in the disillusionment of Democrats. In 2009, 65% of Democrats had a strong approval of the Obamamessiah but in 2004 that percentage has dropped to 38%. It would appear that Barack Obama was not the one that they had been waiting for.
Americans are more than twice as likely to say they “strongly disapprove” (39%) of President Barack Obama’s job performance as they are to say they “strongly approve” (17%). The percentage of Americans who strongly disapprove of Obama has increased over time, while the percentage who strongly approve has dropped by almost half.
In the first year of Obama’s presidency, the percentages of Americans who had strong views about the job he was doing were essentially tied, but the strongly negative responses now significantly outweigh the strongly positive ones. The largest segment of Americans today, 39%, strongly disapprove of Obama’s job performance, while 14% moderately disapprove. Another 27% moderately approve, while 17% strongly approve.
Strong disapproval of the president’s job performance has been within 30% to 39% the four times Gallup has asked the question — in 2009, 2010, 2011, and now this year — but has risen by five percentage points since 2011, and by nine points since the first month Obama was in office. At the same time, strong approval has fallen by nine points in the last three years, and by 15 points since January 2009.
WHO IS THE JAYVEE MR PRESIDENT … MORE FROM AMERICA’S WORST PRESIDENT, EVER!!!
UNBELIEVABLE … President Barack Hussein Obama admitted during his speech yesterday that “WE DO NOT HAVE A STRATEGY YET” to deal with ISIS. JUST UNREAL. ISIS terrorists have been slaughtered innocent victims, taking over city after city in Syria and Iraq in the most brutal fashion. They just brutally murdered another couple hundred Syrian soldiers this week and beheaded American journalist James Foley . But instead Obama says he does not don’t want to put the cart before the horse. Get of the friggin golf course Obama and do your job. How unprepared, how detached, how derelict of their duty could a president possibly be? Just how dangerous could one president possibly be? And this clown had the audacity to call ISIS the Jayvee … Obama may want to look in the mirror and see he the real jayvee team consists of.
But I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet. I think what I’ve seen in some of the news reports suggests that folks are getting a little further ahead of where we’re at than we currently are. And I think that’s not just my assessment, but the assessment of our military, as well. We need to make sure that we’ve got clear plans, that we’re developing them. At that point, I will consult with Congress and make sure that their voices are heard.
But there’s no point in me asking for action on the part of Congress before I know exactly what it is that is going to be required for us to get the job done.
And Obama continues to dither.
More from Powerline, STRATEGY, WHAT STRATEGY?
And yet, by Obama’s own account, he has barely begun the process of developing a strategy to combat ISIL. How can this be? Well, from August 9 until August 25, he was on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard–apparently not the traditional presidential “working vacation.” Before that, who knows? Was there something that Obama had to do between June and the present that was more important than developing a strategy to stop the terrorist organization that was marauding across Iraq and Syria? Apparently so. Fundraising, most likely–the one thing Obama is good at.
The fact that we have arrived at this late date, and our president says “We don’t have a strategy yet,” testifies to the utter fecklessness and incompetence of the Obama administration.
Pew Research/USA Today Poll: African Americans Think Race Relations Have Gotten Worse Since 2009 Under Barack Obama
WHO DIDN’T SEE THIS COMING FROM A COMMUNITY AGITATOR …
Wasn’t the election of Barack Obama supposed to make everything better in the United States, including race relation? Wasn’t the election of the first black president supposed to bridge the divide between races? Well a recent Pew Research/USA Today poll says, not so much, especially among blacks. The poll shows that blacks have a 64% positive view of relations between the races, down 12 points from 76% in 2009. Hmm, I guess an Obama administration of perpetual dividing and race baiting would do that.
The new national survey by the Pew Research Center and USA TODAY, conducted August 20 -24 among 1, 501 adults, finds that overall perceptions of relations between blacks and
whites are only modestly changed from five years ago.
Currently, 69% of the public, including majorities of both whites (75%) and blacks (64%), say blacks and whites in this country get along “very well” or “pretty well.” Since
2009, the share of blacks with a positive view of relations between the races has fallen 12 points (from 76% to 64%) while remaining largely unchanged among whites (80% in 2009).
Full poll can be read HERE.
From the WAPO: Blacks give police lower marks than whites.
WOW, Check Out the Weak Response for Barack Obama While Talking at The American Legion’s 96th National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina
TALK ABOUT AWKWARD SILENCE TO THE MISLEADER IN CHIEF…
Here is one group of people that could care less about Barack Obama’s cheap talk. President Obama spoke yesterday at the American Legion’s 96th National Convention in Charlotte, North Carolina and needless to say his words fell incredibly flat. The reaction from those in attendance could not even be qualified as a golf clap. Some of his lines are just met with silence and a delayed clap. It might have been a tie as to who wanted to be at Obama’s speech more, him or those in attendance. What a different response this president gets when he is not dividing and race baiting.
A seemingly weaker response followed when Obama said America’s “longest war” in Afghanistan would soon come to a “responsible end.”
However, one of the most awkward moments came when the president had to wait several seconds for any response from the audience.
“As we go forward, we will continue to partner with Afghans so their country can never again be used to launch attacks against the United States,” he said.
Several seconds of awkward silence followed before scattered clapping is heard.
TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT THE REAL WAR ON WOMAN …
ISIS is now demanding a 6.6 million ransom for a 26 year old woman from the West Coast who was kidnapped a year ago while doing humanitarian work in Syria. The unidentified woman is one of at least three known hostages of Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also known as ISIL) in Syria. ISIS is demanding the $6.6 million ransom and the release of Aafia Siddiqui, who was convicted of attempting to kill U.S. officials in 2010.
A third American hostage held by ISIS has been identified as a 26-year-old American woman who was kidnapped a year ago while doing humanitarian relief work in Syria. The terror group is demanding $6.6 million and the release of U.S. prisoners for the life of the young woman, whom a representative for the family requested not be identified.
She is the third of at least four Americans who were known to be held by ISIS, the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. American journalist James Foley was executed by the group in a video that appeared online last week. Another writer, Steven Sotloff, was seen alive but under duress in the same footage.
The Other McCain brings up an interesting point to ponder, is there Equal Rights for Hostages? A position of not negotiation with terrorists should really know no race, creed, religion, color or gender. If we did, terrornapping or jihadinapping of women would become common place.
The United States refused to pay a ransom for James Foley, and it would be sexist discrimination to pay ransom for a woman.
I will say this, of ISIS ever beheaded an America woman who’s only crime was doing humanitarian work, even the dithering Barack Obama would be forced to become a war-hawk as it would be pretty difficult to spew the rhetoric of the GOP war on woman and then have one beheaded by the Jayvee team.
