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.
Boko Haram Islamists Beheads 40 People with Chainsaws During Nigeria Elections as Barack Obama Golfs in Florida
NIGERIAN CHAINSAW MASSACRE …
Once again we are witness to the world in flames as terrorists in Nigeria kill scores of individuals as they continue their heinous acts. As reported at RT, Boko Haram beheaded 40 people with chainsaws during the Nigeria elections. But of course Barack Obama would tell you that Islam is a religion of peace. Speaking of Barack Obama, he spent the weekend working hard, worrying about the terror in the world by golfing in Florida.
Militants from extremist group Boko Haram attacked several Nigerian towns, torching houses and fatally shooting those who fled before reportedly beheading some of the bodies with chainsaws. The string of terror attacks comes amid the presidential vote.
At least 25 people were killed and more than 30 injured in the village of Buratai in Borno state, local officials confirmed.
Surviving witnesses described gruesome scenes of murder, saying that not only did the extremists set homes on fire and shoot those trying to escape, but also decapitated the bodies.
Pic – The Economist: Hmm, he looks so natural
Local politician Ibrahim Adamu, who fled the scene, told CNN that Boko Haram “slaughtered their victims like rams and decapitated them,” adding that “they burned a large part of the village and we are afraid some residents were burnt in the homes because most people had gone to bed when the gunmen struck.”
Shh, don’t let people know I could care less about terrorism and radical Islam
Meanwhile, at least 14 people were killed in separate attacks by the radical Islamist group in the towns of Biri and Dukku, located in Gombe state. The victims included a legislator, AP reported.
The attacks came after the Nigerian military announced Friday that it had cleared all major centers in the northeast from militants. They also coincide with the country’s presidential election, which Boko Haram had vowed to derail.
Note to Michael Jordan, don’t be shocked by your next IRS audit …
In an interview with Ahmad Rashad, NBA great and Hall of Famer Michael Jordan trash-talked President Barack Obama’s golf game, calling him “a hack” and a “shitty golfer.” Talk about some straight talk. Rashad, looked at the camera with a concerned and puzzled lok following Jordan’s hack comment and said, “if he really wanted to say that, the president of the United States is a hack? YES HE DID BOBBY MOORE, I mean Ahmad Rashad. What part about the fact that Michael Jordan is bigger than Barack Obama don’t you get? It must be another disappointing day for Barack Obama, Democrats are running away from him, can’t remember his name or even if they had voted for him in the past. Now,
“I never played with Obama but I would,” he said. “But no, it’s OK I’d take him out. He’s a hack. It’d be all day playing with him.”
Rashad, looking awkwardly at the camera, asked Jordan if he really wanted to “say that, the president of the United States is a hack?”
“I never said he wasn’t a great politician,” Jordan said. “I’m just saying he’s a sh***y golfer.”
A note to Michael Jordan … I am saying that Obama isn’t a great politician, in fact he is a political hack as well.
Barack Obama Plays 200th Round of Golf as the Second Ebola Case Emerges in Texas with Healthcare Worker Who Treated Thomas Eric Duncan
THIS PRESIDENT JUST DOES NOT GIVE A $HIT … 200th ROUND OF GOLF AFTER EBOLA PHOTO-OP.
As ‘We the People” of the United States of America learned that there was a second case of Ebola in Texas and the first ever transmitted case of Ebola in America, Barack Obama went golfing. Yup, after Americans learned that a female nurse who cared for and has extensive contact with Thomas Eric Duncan, the individual who traveled to Dallas, Texas from Liberia who died from Ebola, had tested positive for Ebola … The Golfer in Chief once again went golfing for his 200th round since he became president. UNREAL. Obama just doesn’t care. WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS MAN? Is he really that detached from reality that he does not comprehend that it is his role to protect America and Americans, not play golf?
Americans are wondering why flights to the US from Liberian are not being banned, nurses and healthcare workers are wondering why they are not being properly trained, I am wondering why those testing positive with Ebola are not sent to specific healthcare facilities that deal with Ebola and Obama plays golf.
After hearing the news shortly after midnight early Sunday morning that a second Ebola case had been diagnosed in a Texas Presbyterian Hospital nurse, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings stayed up through the night putting together an action plan.
In contrast, President Barack Obama’s response is being criticized as not adequately prioritizing the crisis. As Fox News Channel’s Greta Van Susteren tweeted, Obama made a phone call to Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia Burwell and then “headed out to play golf.” CBS White House correspondent Mark Knoller had posted that the press corps had been escorted to vans in the presidential motorcade to go to the golf course, but then were led back to the White House for a photo opp of Obama on the phone with Burwell that “lasted only 40 seconds.” Knoller tweeted several photos of Obama wearing a casual windbreaker, sitting at his desk in the Oval Office while speaking on the phone.
Knoller also reported shortly after 11:30 a.m. Eastern Time that Obama has arrived at Fort Belvoir Golf Club for “his 200th round of golf as President.” The Golf Channel confirmed that this was the 200th round of golf for Obama — or, as they dubbed him, the “First Duffer” — since he became president.
CNN Poll: 90% of Americans Believe that ISIS is a Threat to America, the Terror Group that Obama Called the Jayvee
JAYVEE HUH? NEVER HAS THE UNITED STATES HAD A MORE DANGEROUS PRESIDENT IN THE WHITE HOUSE …
How out of touch, clueless and dangerous is Barack Obama? 90% of Americans believe that ISIS is a threat to America, this while Obama considered them the Jayee and was too busy golfing and vacationing, rather than developing any type of strategy for this terror group. The president knew about ISIS and the threat it posed for well over a year and did nothing. Not until he was forced to after two Americans were brutally beheaded by ISIS and Obama was forced to admit he had no strategy, With the anniversary of 9-11 just days away, 71% of Americans believe that ISIS already have terrorists in the United States. All this while Barack Obama dithers and has been 100% derelict in his duties. Obama is supposed to address Congress on Wednesday about his plans to confront ISIS. How could any president be so late to the game with no strategy?
President Barack Obama plans to address the nation Wednesday about his plan to confront ISIL, but the poll also shows that many Americans don’t consider the president and his administration prepared to deal with the group. Of the respondents, 67 percent said the president does not have a clear plan,
Americans are increasingly concerned that ISIS represents a direct terror threat, fearful that ISIS agents are living in the United States, according to a new CNN/ORC International poll. Most now support military action against the terrorist group.
Seven in 10 Americans believe ISIS has the resources to launch an attack against the United States, just days before President Barack Obama plans to address the nation on the subject.
The poll released Monday shows that Americans favor:
- Additional airstrikes against ISIS (76% favor, 23% oppose)
- Military aid to forces fighting ISIS (62% favor, 37% oppose)
- Providing humanitarian aid to people fleeing ISIS (83% favor, 16% oppose)
Barack Obama Supposedly Outraged Over Beheading of Journalist James Foley, Vows to Stay on Course … The Golf Course that Is
WHAT IS WRONG WITH THIS PRESIDENT, HAS HE NO SENSE OF COMMON DECENCY?
How does Barack Obama spend eight minutes professing outrage over the beheading of American journalist James Foley at the hands of ISIS and then minutes later rush off to the gold course and yuk it up with his friends? WHO DOES THIS? It is unbelievable that a US President could be so out of touch, so self-consumed, so ignorant and so void of conscience that they disrespect the family and the memory of James Foley. Let alone disrespect the United States. Get off the golf course you clown and take you job seriously. You are the President and the Commander in Chief of the United States of America … ACT LIKE IT!
And just when you thought Obama’s golfing after his faux ISIS outrage could not get any worse, from Twitchy comes the Fist Bump in Chief. Here is your Hope & Change America. Here is the president you not only elected once, the one that you some how managed to reelect. What a tone deaf, insensitive, cold, uncaring individual. Obama could care less about James Foley and the safety and security of the United States. Such things are an inconvenience to his tee times.
From The Daily News via Powerline comes the headline and the disgusting and reprehensible optics of Barack Obama golfing while the heartbroken parents of James Foley gives a presser of their brutal son’s death at the hands of ISIS. Some one may want to put an AMBER ALERT out for Obama’s missing soul and conscience. At what point will Obama make US national security and dealing with ISIS more important than his golf game? Sadly, it would appear Obama is more concerned with shooting par than ISIS.
Even MSNBC’s Chris Mathhews took exception with Barack Obama, not so much with the presidents golfing, but instead Obama’s statement regarding ISIS’s beheading of American journalist James Foley.
“I don’t know why he used the word ‘justice.’ It’s not appropriate here. This is an attack on our country, we have to react to it,” an upset Chris Matthews reacted to a video excerpt of President Obama’s statement today about the beheading by an ISIS member of American freelance journalist James Foley.
President Barack Obama teed off again on Thursday, just 24 hours after pictures of his wide grin on the golf course drew condemnation in the wake of the beheading of American photojournalist James Foley.
‘Admit it,’ a White House pool reporter emailed the press corps. ‘You all made small-dollar bets that POTUS would be playing golf today. And … you would be right!’
‘We are at the Farm Neck Golf Club at 1:13 pm. and POTUS is hitting the links again.’
The president drew fire Wednesday after reacting to Foley’s on-camera slaying for just five minutes, and then gripping his driver.
He had told a global audience minutes earlier that ‘when people harm Americans, anywhere, we do what’s necessary to see that justice is done.’
Then he was seen laughing with friends and fist-bumping them during a five-hour round at Farm Neck on Martha’s Vineyard.
Does Barack Obama even care anymore?
The Daily Telegraph opines that President Barack Obama has already checked out of his job. Matt K Lewis, a senior contributor at The Daily Caller, writes that “The degree to which Barack Obama is now phoning it in – sleepwalking perfunctorily through his second term, amid golf rounds and dinner parties – is astonishing.” If it was not bad enough during Obama’s first term with his over-usage of greens and fairways as other more important issues were taking place, the One’s second term has been even worse. Rome is burning and
Nero Obama is shamefully playing golf and going to fund raisers.If Obama does not care anymore and has checked out, as witnessed by his actions or lack of action … can he just do us all a favor and leave the White House early? I am sure many would not mind, including Democrats.
And based on his recent handling of situations much more serious than a possible post-presidential move to sunny California, it seems as if “No Drama Obama” is no longer even worried about keeping up appearances; he doesn’t care enough to fake it.
Consider this: In recent days, a) Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 was shot down, apparently by Russian separatists in Ukraine, b) In the Gaza strip, the numbers killed continued to mount as Israelis and Palestinians exchange rocket fire, c) a huge influx of children fleeing Central American poverty and gang warfare swamped America’s southern border, creating a humanitarian crisis. And, oh yeah, d) Christians living in Mosul were given the choice to either convert to Islam or flee the area they have inhabited for nearly two thousand years.
You know what else has happened during this time? a) Obama played many rounds of golf, b) he attended numerous fund-raisers, c) he dined on barbecue in Texas and burgers in Delaware, and d) he almost appeared on the comedian Jimmy Kimmel’s late-night television show in Hollywood.
I say “almost” because the White House finally relented. “We ultimately elected not to have the president do that interview over the course of this trip,” the White House press secretary, Josh Earnest, conceded. “And that is at least in part related to the challenges of doing a comedy show in the midst of some of these other more serious matters that the president’s dealing with in the international scene.”
Previously Judge Jeanine Pirro blasted Barack Obama for his apathy on crucial current events and told him, “It’s Time to Get Your ‘Big Boy Pants On’ & Stop Kidding Around.”
Also, Sean Hanity offered up a blistering monologue telling Barack Obama, ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”

President Barack Obama, A Man of the People in His Rancho Mirage, $4.25 Million, Gated Community Future Home
Rancho Mirage, California … Obama may be coming to town, there goes the neighborhood.
Rumor has it that Barack and Michelle Obama are buying a home in Rancho Mirage, CA for $4.5 million. Hmm, so is this the reason why Obama continued to tank the economy and not to get the US out of a recession so that he could buy a home after his president days in Rancho Mirage $4.25 million, when 8 years ago the same home went for 12.5 million? Oh yes, Obama is just a man of the people. When is the Left going to understand that Barack Obama is a 1%’er. He would rather be in Martha’s Vineyard than mingling with the blue collar riff-raff. The White House says the “rumors” about the home are not true. Which means that they are 100% true because the Obama WH is the most lying, dishonest and corrupt one that this country has sadly ever seen.
Just curious, who thinks it is fair that under Obama millions of people lost their jobs, homes and business and he gets to buy a home like this after increasing the national debt to historic levels? Hmm, wonder what the carbon footprint is on this home?
President Obama and his wife, Michelle, could be the owners of a home in Rancho Mirage listed at $4.25 million before the month is out.
The First Family is believed to be in escrow on a contemporary home in a gated community where entertainers Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope and Bing Crosby once maintained estates.
The White House said rumors regarding a home in Rancho Mirage are not true.
But area real estate agents, who spoke on condition of anonymity, said the Obamas are the buyers of the Rancho Mirage home. Listing agents Marc Lange and Carl Blea of HOM Sotheby’s International declined to comment.
I have an idea. If the tax payers pay for the home, can Obama move there and leave the White House Now!!!
ABC News/WAPO Poll Gives Barack Obama Poor Grade on Handling Crisis of Illegals Coming into the United States Over Mexican Border
Imagine that, President Barack Obama gets low marks on yet another important key issue.
A recent ABC News/WAPO poll gives Obama extremely poor marks on dealing with illegals crossing the US-Mexican border as only 33% approve of his handling of the situation while 58% of all respondents disapprove and 60% of registered voters. How could anyone agree with Obama’s handling of this when he thought going to a fundraiser in Texas was more important than seeing the crisis for himself, first hand?
It’s one of the hottest national debates this summer: What to do about the influx of unaccompanied and undocumented children from Central America who are crossing from Mexico into the U.S.
A new national poll indicates that a majority of Americans approve of President Barack Obama’s short term remedy, but most give the President and his GOP critics in Congress a thumbs down on how they’re handling the crisis along the country’s southern border.
Barack Obama Goes Golfing & Fund Raising as Iraq Implodes & All the Sacrifices of Americans Soldiers are Lost to ISIS Terrorists Thanks to Obama
Barack Obama, a complete and epic failure as Commander in Chief … Obama just doesn’t care about America, the military or Americans!
It was said from the outset by many intelligent and common sense thinking people that a premature exit from Iraq by the US military would result in the fall of the Iraq government to insurgents. However, Barack Obama was never one of those intelligent people either as a US Senator or as a president. In order to keep his campaign promise to end the war in Iraq, he sacrificed any victory and all of the sacrifices and lives of those brave American soldiers who fought, died and were injured. Now Iraq is in dire straights as Islamic jihadists take over the country.
In January 2007 then Senator Barack Obama went on Face the Nation to share his foreign policy brilliance stating, “One of the things that I strongly disagree with Senator McCain is, this notion that we have future catastrophe to look forward to if we start phasing down troops.” Guess who was wrong, Epically Wrong! Has there ever been a worse Commander in Chief, ever? Iraq is in complete chaos. City after city are falling in Iraq as Iraq implodes.
Barack Obama stood by and watched Iraq fall to terrorists. There were multiple requests from Iraq for United States airstrikes against the insurgents in staging areas; however, they were turned down. What is up with our Commander in Chief refusing to help militarily in Iraq? Why is he emboldening terrorists? As Ralph Peters said on Fox News, the Jihadi conquest of Iraq the biggest Islamist victory since 12th century. Welcome to Obama’s Jihadi state.
“Patty Ann, this is President Obama’s real legacy. The creation of the first jihadi state in modern history stretching from central Syria to Central Iraq and now approaching Baghdad all because President Obama saw everything through a political lense. He’s gonna end the War in Iraq. He refused to negotiate seriously for residual US presence.
And now, just to put this in perspective for viewers, with this jihadi conquest of Mosul and jihadi forces approaching Baghdad, this is shaping up to be the biggest Arab jihadi victory since the 12th Century, 1187, and the fall of Crusader Jerusalem. This is momentous.
I can’t overstate the importance of Obama’s jihadi state in the heart of the Middle East.”
So what exactly is Obama trying to accomplish except to try and dispirit America? Barack Obama released 5 Taliban insurgents from GITMO for one military deserter, Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl. Something that the American people are against, and the number will only continue to grow, the more and more the truth comes out. Obama has all but lost Iraq. All of the gains from brave American military soldiers all seem for naught. Sadly, many veterans feel their accomplishments were a waste. A note to the US military veterans of Iraq, what you did was not a waste, your actions were destroyed by Obama more hellbent on a political ideology than winning a war.
Instead, this joke of a president continues and doubles down on his failed foreign policy.Obama spoke on Friday from the White House with some of the most gutless talk from a US president ever. Instead of taking decisive action to help Iraq, Obama is going to continue to dither. UNREAL.
‘We will not be sending US troops back into combat but I had asked my national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces. And I’ll be reviewing those options in the days ahead. I do want to be clear though. This is not solely or even primarily a military challenge.”
Barack Obama stated on Friday, he would be reviewing options from his national security team to prepare a range of other options that could help support Iraq security forces. Hmm, really? Looks like as Iraq falls to ISIS terrorists, Barack Obama is going to go golfing and fundraising. For the love of God, are you serious? After all, aren’t we glad that our US president has his priorities straight?
The president’s handlers scoped out some golf courses and gave a list to Obama just in case he wants to spend Father’s Day on the links.
Obama plans to take a short flight to Orange County Saturday to raise money for the Democratic National Committee at a closed-door event at a private home.
