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?
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)
THANKS BARACK OBAMA … THE JV HAS TAKEN RAMADI.
Barack Obama’s failed foreign policy continues as Ramadi falls to ISIS in Iraq to ISIS. Thanks Barack! According to iCasualties, via the Gateway Pundit, the United States lost 1335 soldiers in Anbar Province during Operation Iraqi Freedom and another 8,205 soldiers were injured in fighting in Anbar. During the presidency of George W. Bush, the terrorists were truly on the run thanks to the surge. However, with all that American treasure and blood lost, Barack Obama found a way to render it all futile as he prematurely withdrew US troops from Iraq paving the way for ISIS to retake Iraq. UNREAL.
With Memorial Day coming up, Obama should simply be ashamed of himself and what he has done to the memory and legacy of Our brave fallen soldiers in Iraq.
The capture of Ramadi — a major city in Anbar province — by ISIS forces yesterday is another indicator of the Obama administration’s failed policies in Iraq, a foreign policy expert said yesterday.
The contested city of Ramadi fell to the Islamic State group yesterday, as Iraqi forces abandoned their weapons and armored vehicles, fleeing the provincial capital despite intensified U.S.-led airstrikes. Bodies littered the streets as local officials reported the militants carried out mass killings of Iraqi security forces and civilians.
“Ramadi has fallen,” said Muhannad Haimour, a spokesman for the governor of Anbar province. “The city was completely taken. … The military is fleeing.”
Yesterday’s retreat recalled the collapse of Iraqi security forces in last summer’s ISIS blitz, and calls into question the Obama administration’s hopes of relying solely on airstrikes to support the Iraqi forces.
“It’s a reminder the complete withdrawal from Iraq in 2011 was one of the worst diplomatic mistakes in the last decade,” said Victor Davis Hanson, a senior fellow at the Hoover Institute. “Anybody who knew Iraq knew that the Iraqi Army in 2011 was not going to be able to take care of itself.
“It’s a tragedy that was preventable,” Hanson said. “It made no sense. We created a vacuum and ISIS was born. When the president left he said, ‘I’m leaving a stable and secure Iraq.’?”
Hey Obama, who is the JV? You might want to look in the mirror on that one.
IMAGE THAT, BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA LIED ABOUT SOMETHING …
On Sunday in the London Review of Books, author Seymour M. Hersh , published as expose alleging that President Obama deceived Americans with his narrative of the 2011 assassination of Osama bin Laden. Hersh accuses Obama of rushing to take credit for the al Qaeda leader’s death. Read the full story at The Hill.
An expose published on Sunday alleges that President Obama deceived Americans with his narrative of the 2011 assassination of Osama bin Laden.
Author Seymour M. Hersh accuses Obama of rushing to take credit for the al Qaeda leader’s death.
This decision, Hersh argues in the London Review of Books, forced the military and intelligence communities to scramble and then corroborate the president’s version of events.
“High-level lying nonetheless remains the modus operandi of U.S. policy, along with secret prisons, drone attacks, Special Forces night raids, bypassing the chain of command, and cutting out those who might say no,” Hersh wrote of the Obama administration’s counterterrorism policies.
Hersh based his report on a single, anonymous source. This individual, he said, is a “retired senior intelligence official who was knowledgeable about the initial intelligence about bin Laden’s presence in Abottabad.”
Hersh’s source alleged that the Pakistani government had an active role in approving and implementing the raid on bin Laden’s compound.
CBS News/NY Times Poll: Race Relations Worst In Over Two Decades … 61% Call Race Relations in the US “BAD”
THANKS BARACK … YOU HAVE MADE MATTERS WORSE … OBAMA IS TRULY THE DIVIDER IN CHIEF.
According to a new CBS News-New York Times poll, 61% of Americans characterize race relations in the United States as “bad.” Thanks to Barack Obama, the most decisive president ever, the first black elected president of the United States has actually made race relations in the US worse, rather than better. You should be so proud of yourself. This is what the Obama presidency has accomplished, the poll states that for the first time since 1997 a majorities of both white and black Americans believe race relations in the U.S. are poor. Obama is an abject failure. This man could have done so much for race relations in the United States, he could have bridged the divide like Nelson Mandela did in South Africa between whites and blacks, but instead, because of his radical left agenda, his hateful black theology teachings and a religious mentor like Rev. Jeremiah “God Damn America” Wright, Barack Obama has made race relations worse in the US. This will forever he Obama’s legacy.
Is it any wonder why Barack Obama has created the worst race relations in two decades … It appears Obama was listening in the pews to his mentor Rev. Jeremiah Wright
A new poll released Monday indicated that Americans believe race relations are at their worst in more than two decades.
The CBS News/New York Times poll said 61 percent of Americans characterize race relations in the U.S. as “bad,” including a majority of white and black respondents. The figure is the highest since 1992.
A total of 79 percent of African-Americans believe police are more likely to use deadly force against a black person than against a white person, while 53 percent of whites believe race does not play a role, the survey said.
Black respondents were also more likely than white respondents to believe their local police make them feel anxious rather than safe, the poll said.
This was also the first time since 1997 that majorities of both white and black Americans believe race relations in the U.S. are poor, the poll said. Opinions among white Americans have grown sharply more negative in the poll even compared with earlier this year – with 62 percent of whites saying race relations are bad compared with just 35 percent in February.
Black respondents have historically had a more negative view than white respondents about race relations, but the level of pessimism is now similar, according to the poll.
Also, fewer than one in five white Americans think race relations are getting better – with 44 percent responding that relations are getting worse and 37 percent saying they’re staying about the same.
Most respondents – 64 percent of whites and 57 percent of blacks – thought the unrest in Baltimore following Gray’s death was not justified, the poll said.
This poll isn’t much better than the Bloomberg poll in 2014.
Dr. Ben Carson, who just announced that he was running for president for 2016, previously stated in November 2014 that race relations were better prior to President Barack Obama. He said that things have gotten worse because of Obama’s manipulation of minority communities
