Former President Jimmy Carter Says, Obama’s Successes on World Stage “Have Been Minimal” … “US’s Influence & Prestige & Respect in the World is probably Lower than it was 6 or 7 Years Ago.” (VIDEO)
JIMMY CARTER SAYS OBAMA HAS HAD MINIMAL SUCCESSES ON THE WORLD STAGE … I GUESS THAT IS A GOOD THING FOR THE WORLD.
Former President Jimmy Carter ripped Barack Obama in a recent interview stating that Obama’s successes on the world stage “have been minimal.” WOW, that says a lot coming from this disaster of a president on the world stage. Not only did Carter say that Obama’s accomplishments were minimal, he also stated that US influence and prestige in the world was lower than it was 6 or 7 years ago. But Carter doesn’t want to be called a racist so he says’ he doesn’t blame Obama for his failures on the world stage. Of course Obama isn’t to blame, why would anyone in the Democrat party hold him accountable for his failures? Um, then who is to blame, GWB? Or would it be Hillary Clinton’s fault? After all, Carter proclaimed John Kerry was “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had.”
After proclaiming John Kerry “one of the best secretaries of state we’ve ever had,” Carter dumped cold water on Obama’s record abroad.
“On the world stage, I think [Obama’s accomplishments] have been minimal,” Carter said. “I think he has done some good things domestically, like health reform and so forth. But on the world stage, just to be objective about it, I can’t think of many nations in the world where we have a better relationship now than when he took over.”
“I would say the U.S.’s influence and prestige and respect in the world is probably lower than it was six or seven years ago,” Carter said.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME … OBAMA GOES GOLFING ON THE LUSH GREENS IN PALM SPRINGS IN THE MIDST OF A DROUGHT IN CALI?
Could Barack Obama be more of an uncaring, elitists hypocrite? It is well documented that this man has some type of mental obsession when it comes to playing golf as he has provided some of the worst optics of any president, especially rushing to play golf following his address to the nation the day after video of James Foley being beheaded by ISIS. Now, in the midst of California’s terrible drought, where water restrictions are in place and people are being fined for the over-use of water, the Golfer in Chief headed to Palm Springs to play golf for the weekend. ARE YOU JOKING? As the Washington Times aptly states, it is par for the course! Obama swoops into drought-ravaged Calif. for golf weekend.
Where is the liberal LEFT and the environmental-wackos losing their minds over this? Their beloved Obamamessiah playing golf on the biggest waste of water going? Image if he were a Republican what the hue & cry would be. Honestly, he just doesn’t care and the rules do not apply to King Obama. He would tell you to sacrifice, but not for thee.
With four fund-raisers and an awkward reconciliation with the House minority leader, Nancy Pelosi, behind him, President Obama returned to a beloved golf oasis here for a weekend getaway with friends.
This time, though, was different. A punishing drought has raised questions about whether such oases can survive, and about the president’s weekend here.
The vast emerald green courses in the area are watered by a disappearing Colorado River and an underground aquifer that has fallen about 55 feet since 1970.
While environmentalists generally support the president, some grumbled that he needed to take up a new hobby or indulge it someplace else.
“President Obama needs to take a mulligan and rethink golfing in Palm Springs in the middle of a drought,” said Erich Pica, the president of Friends of the Earth, using a golfing term that refers to a do-over after a bad shot. “It takes copious amounts of water to maintain a golf course, and it just sends the wrong message to the people of California just as they are being asked to cut back on water use.”
Meanwhile, on Father’s Day, Michelle Obama, Sasha and Malia were no where to be found as they were in Europe. Another fantastic optic.
HE SAID WHAT!!!
Barack Obama admitted on Monday at the G7 Conference in Germany that he does not yet have a “complete strategy” to defeat ISIS. WHAT!!! How in the hell could we not have a complete strategy, actually it would appear that Obama does not even have a partial strategy when it comes to taking on the savage terrorists of ISIS. Obama is the worst president this country has ever seen. Obama would not know what leadership was if he tripped over it. It is incomprehensible to imagine that after all this time that Obama has no strategy when it comes to ISIS. I would ask the following question, will the real JV please stand up. If there was ever a question, that would be you Barack Obama. In the end, this man just does not care about fighting terrorism. These comments should frighten the hell out of Americans.
President Obama said Monday the United States does not have a complete plan to train and equip Iraqi forces to fight the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS), saying Baghdad needs to show a greater commitment to building a fighting force.
“We don’t yet have a complete strategy,” Obama told reporters during a news conference at the G-7 summit of leading industrial nations in Germany.
Obama’s comments are a surprising admission nine months into the U.S.-led coalition’s campaign against the terror group.
The strategy to fight ISIS, but Obama certainly had a well thought out strategy and plan to lie to the American people to pass Obamacare, didn’t he?
HOW CAN ANY AGENCY CONTINUE TO OPERATE WITH A 95% FAILURE RATE?
What a joke, The TSA is a complete and total farce. According to an internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration, it revealed TSA security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials. 95%!!! It really makes one wonder how we have not been hit by terrorism. But don’t worry, those TSA agents can sure harass granny and little kids. With a failure rate like this of detecting bombs and weapons being attempted to carry on a plane, it is just “plane” $hit luck that a commercial aircraft has not been blown out of the sky. This is just simply unacceptable.
And what happened to the man at the head of this colossal failure … why he was reassigned to another position to screw that up as well. Reassigned???!!! How can anyone have a 5% success rate and retain employment? Be a government employee of course.
An internal investigation of the Transportation Security Administration revealed security failures at dozens of the nation’s busiest airports, where undercover investigators were able to smuggle mock explosives or banned weapons through checkpoints in 95 percent of trials, ABC News has learned.
The series of tests were conducted by Homeland Security Red Teams who pose as passengers, setting out to beat the system.
According to officials briefed on the results of a recent Homeland Security Inspector General’s report, TSA agents failed 67 out of 70 tests, with Red Team members repeatedly able to get potential weapons through checkpoints.
In one test an undercover agent was stopped after setting off an alarm at a magnetometer, but TSA screeners failed to detect a fake explosive device that was taped to his back during a follow-on pat down.
Officials would not divulge the exact time period of the testing other than to say it concluded recently.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson was apparently so frustrated by the findings he sought a detailed briefing on them last week at TSA headquarters in Arlington, Virginia, according to sources. U.S. officials insisted changes have already been made at airports to address vulnerabilities identified by the latest tests.
“Upon learning the initial findings of the Office of Inspector General’s report, Secretary Johnson immediately directed TSA to implement a series of actions, several of which are now in place, to address the issues raised in the report,” the DHS said in a written statement to ABC News.
Former President George W. Bush Has a Greater Favorability Rating Than Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama
MISS HIM YET?
According to a recent CNN/ORC poll, former President George W. Bush has a greater favorability rating than both Barack Obama and 2016 Democrat wannabe president Hillary Clinton. GWB has a 52% favorably and 43 unfavorable … Obama has a 49% favorable and 49% unfavorable rating and a job approval of 45% approve, 52% disapprove. George W. Bush even polls better than the presumptive Democrat 2016 presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
The complete poll can be read HERE.

President Barack Obama’s job approval numbers are sinking as American attitudes about the nation’s progress have taken a turn for the worse, according to a new CNN/ORC poll.
A majority of the public once again say things in the U.S. are going pretty badly and disapproval of Obama’s job performance has climbed back above 50% as well.
According to the poll, 52% of adults had a favorable impression of George W. Bush, 43% unfavorable. When Bush left office in 2009, only about one-third of Americans said they had a positive opinion of him. This new poll presents a notable shift as Bush’s overall favorability has remained well below 50% for much of his time as a presidential alum.
Overall, 47% say things in the country are going well, 52% that they’re going badly. That’s a reversal from March, when 53% said things were going well, the highest share to say so during Obama’s presidency. The shift comes across partisan and demographic lines, with no one group’s opinions driving the overall change.
Obama’s approval rating has suffered a similar blow.
While it’s dropped since April, going from a near-even 48% approve to 47% disapprove split to a negative-tilting 52% disapprove to 45% approve, the rising disapproval ratings come across party lines, from both men and women, from whites and non-whites.
UNREAL … YOUR HARD EARNED TAX DOLLARS HANDED OVER TO SO-CALLED GREEN ENERGY AND NO ACCOUNTABILITY.
The Daily Caller is reporting that the IRS has handed out billions of dollars to support Barack Obama’s green energy projects. You know, those one’s like those unsuccessful and bankrupt companies like Solyndra. And it gets worse, if possible. The IRS is not tracking the money to see how it was being spent. ARE YOU KIDDING, WHEN WILL THIS ALL STOP!!! The IRS, the organization who makes people’s lives miserable for not properly tracking their income, does not have to do the same with tax payer dollars? Talk about the ultimate in hypocrisy. Honestly, the IRS really does need to be abolished and converted into an entity that just counts the tax revenue sent in by Americans from a flat or fair tax and no longer allowed to harass or divvy out monies at the bequest of a president.
A new government watchdog report found that the Internal Revenue service has handed out billions of dollars to support green energy projects, and then failed to mention how the money was spent on building new power generation.
The Government Accountability Office (GAO) reports that IRS tax subsidies to green energy operators “accounted for an estimated $13.7 billion in forgone revenue to the federal government for renewable projects and $1.4 billion for traditional projects” between 2004 and 2013.
That’s a lot of money, but the IRS can’t (or won’t) tell government auditors how much green energy generating capacity their tax subsidies are supporting. The GAO says the IRS “is not required to collect project level data from all taxpayers” who claim an Investment Tax Credit (ITC) or Production Tax Credit (PTC).
“IRS officials stated that IRS is unlikely to collect additional data on these tax credits unless it is directed to do so,” the GAO reported. “Since 1994, GAO has encouraged greater scrutiny of tax expenditures, including data collection. Without project-level data on the ITC and PTC, Congress cannot evaluate their effectiveness as it considers whether to reauthorize or extend them.”
GDP Grew 0.2% For Q1 2015 >>> GDP Shrank 0.7% For Q1 2015.
The GDP was originally said to have grown at a meager 0.2% for the first quarter of 2015 back in April. That was bad enough, however, it gets worse. The GDP was revised down to -0.7%. That means that the economy actually shrank by 0.7%. There was no growth. Way to go Barack Obama with your lousy economic plan that has done nothing but make money for the Wall Street ultra-rich. The GDP in Q4 2014 was 2.6%. It would appear we are headed in the wrong direction. The report was the government’s second estimate of first-quarter GDP. It will publish a final estimate in June. Wow, it may actually get revised to an even worse number.
A tax cut or reduction of regulation is certainly not on the table for this socialist president. Of course Obama and his minions will point to the unemployment number of 5.4% for the uninformed in America. The reality is that unemployment is in double digits.
The U.S. economy went into reverse in the first three months of this year as a severe winter and a widening trade deficit took a harsher toll than initially thought.
The overall economy as measured by the gross domestic product contracted at an annual rate of 0.7 percent in the January-March period, the Commerce Department reported Friday.
The revised figure, weaker than the government’s initial estimate of a meager 0.2 percent growth rate, reflects a bigger trade gap and slower consumer spending. It marked the first decline since a 2.1 percent contraction in the first three months of 2014, a slump that was also blamed on winter weather.
Bill O’Reilly Talking Points Blasts Barack Obama, Pelosi and Reid For Their Failure in War on Terror
Bill O’Reilly blasted President Barack Obama for his weak foreign policy and the dire consequences it has created in the Middle East, Europe the Far East and across the world. O’Reilly called it a perfect storm of weakness. What happened to Obama’s promise to downgrade terrorism as he seems to make climate change a more important topic than terrorism? Obama’s lack of leadership, the most reluctant leader this country has ever seen, has been the focal point of why evil has been on the rise. Bill O’Reilly stated, “by withholding American power abroad, the president is plunging the world into a very dark place. When order collapses, so does civilized society.”
Bill O’Reilly ended his rant by saying, “God help the next president of the United States.” I would go one further and say, God help the citizens of the United States.
War and Peace in the United States
He ripped Obama, Harry Reid, and Nancy Pelosi for “saying various thing that make absolutely no sense at all” while ISIS is growing in power in the Middle East.
O’Reilly went through all the unintended consequences of Obama’s weak foreign policy, which includes China’s expansion and Vladimir Putin feeling he can just walk all over the United States. O’Reilly said he’s “simply aghast that American foreign policy is so bad.”
“By withholding American power abroad,” he concluded, “the president is plunging the world into a very dark place. When order collapses, so does civilized society, and we are seeing that all over this planet.”

STRIKE 2: The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals today told Barack Obama where he can stick his pen …
Today, the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals of the United States has dealt Barack Obama’s Executive order on Amnesty a tremendous blow. Two of three judges on a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans sided on the rule of law and the US Constitution. Judges Jerry E. Smith and Jennifer Elrod both ruled and refused to lift an injunction against President Obama’s deportation amnesty and said the president’s new program, known as Deferred Action for Parental Accountability (DAPA), is a binding policy that should have gone through the usual public notice and comment period instead of being announced unilaterally by Mr. Obama and Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson late last year
A federal appeals court on Tuesday denied the Obama administration’s request to lift a hold on the president’s executive actions on immigration, which would have granted protection from deportation as well as work permits to millions of immigrants in the country illegally.
Two of three judges on a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, in New Orleans, left in place an injunction by a Federal District Court judge in Brownsville, Tex. The ruling comes in a lawsuit filed by Texas and 25 other states against actions President Obama took in November. Many of the initiatives were scheduled to take effect this month.
The appeals court found that the states had sufficient legal grounds to bring the lawsuit and that the administration had not shown that it would be harmed if the injunction remained in place and the programs were further delayed.
Also denied was a request by the administration to limit the injunction to the states bringing the lawsuit. The ruling is a second setback for programs the president hoped would be a major piece of his legacy, raising new uncertainty about whether they will take effect before the end of his term and casting doubts on the confidence of administration lawyers that their case was very strong.
Remember when Obama said he didn’t have the power to pass such amnesty and then did it anyhow?
WHERE IS THE COALTION AIR STRIKE … ISIS Holds Military Parade in West Anbar Celebrating Victory in Ramadi
AM I MISSING SOMETHING … HOW IN THE HELL IS OBAMA’S COALITION AIR CAMPAIGN NOT TARGETING THIS ISIS VICTORY PARADE!!!
File this one under unbelievable. Following ISIS’s victory in Rimadi, that the Obama White House and their spin doctors are calling a setback, ISIS conducted a victory parade through Rimadi like conquering heroes. WHAT THE HELL!!! Are you kidding me that the Coalition of the Willing, which more like under the leadership of Barack Obama is more the the Coalition of the Unwilling.
Who is the JV, looks more and more like Obama everyday.
How was this row of ISIS terrorists not taken out? It is obvious that Barack Obama is not serious in the slightest of eliminating ISIS. These columns of ISIS vehicles would have been easier to hit than clay pigeons. Remember when Obama pledged to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the Islamic State? Yeah, you can keep your doctor and insurance too.
Hmm, look like ducks on a pond just waiting for an airstrike …
IT HAS been apparent for some time that the United States lacks a strategy to fulfill President Obama’s pledge to “degrade and ultimately destroy” the Islamic State since it has no plan to root out the terrorists’ base in Syria. There was hope, though, that Mr. Obama’s half-measures might be enough to blunt the Islamic State’s advances in Iraq, leaving the Syria problem for the next U.S. president. With the stunning fall of Ramadi on Sunday, even that modest optimism is questionable.
“ISIL is on the defensive, and ISIL is going to lose,” Mr. Obama declared on Feb. 11, using an acronym for the Islamic State. “We’ve seen reports of sinking morale among ISIL fighters as they realize the futility of their cause.” The Iraqi army’s capture of Tikrit the following month seemed to provide confirmation.
But U.S. airstrikes late last week proved powerless to block a sophisticated Islamic State offensive to capture Ramadi, the capital of Anbar province 80 miles west of Baghdad. Once again, the Islamist terrorists are slaughtering captives and sending civilians fleeing in fear. Once again, they have seized U.S. military equipment, including about 30 vehicles the government sent into Ramadi the day before its fall. Once again, in the absence of more intensive help from the United States, the Iraqi government is turning to Shiite militia and the Iranian armed forces that support them. Iran’s defense minister, Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan, flew into Baghdad on Monday. (read the rest)
