And So Her 2016 Presidential Campaign Begins, Hillary Clinton Blames Rise of Islamic Militants (ISIS) on Obama’s Failed Policies & “Stupid Stuff”

Hillary Clinton blames Islamic militants rise on Barack Obama’s failed policies. But what difference does it make Hillary?

Suddenly, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton blames US foreign policy failures under President Barack Obama for the rise of Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria. Of course the follow up question would be, what foreign policy? In an interview with The Atlantic, Hillary suggested that Obama lacked a strategy for dealing with the jihadist threat. She said, “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.”  Hillary was  referring to an Obama slogan. OUCH. Hey Libs and Dems, that’s Hillary Clinton agreeing with Conservatives and Republicans. How are them apples?

Obama and Hillary in friendlier times

The Gateway Pundit reminds us of what Clinton was saying on September 2011. In an interview with VOA Hillary Clinton said, “Al-Qaeda was on the path of defeat.”

Former secretary of state Hillary Clinton blamed the rise of Islamist militants in Iraq and Syria on failures of US policy under President Barack Obama, in an interview published Sunday.

Clinton specifically faulted the US decision to stay on the sidelines of the insurgency against Syria’s President Bashar al-Assad as opening the way for the most extreme rebel faction, the Islamic State.

“The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad —- there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle -— the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled,” Clinton told the Atlantic.

Clinton, widely considered an undeclared presidential candidate, was an unsuccessful advocate of arming the Syrian rebels when she was secretary of state during Obama’s first term.

Hillary has lost that luvin’, sycophant feeling

The Atlantic: Hillary Clinton: ‘Failure’ to Help Syrian Rebels Led to the Rise of ISIS.

President Obama has long ridiculed the idea that the U.S., early in the Syrian civil war, could have shaped the forces fighting the Assad regime, thereby stopping al Qaeda-inspired groups—like the one rampaging across Syria and Iraq today—from seizing control of the rebellion. In an interview in February, the president told me that “when you have a professional army … fighting against a farmer, a carpenter, an engineer who started out as protesters and suddenly now see themselves in the midst of a civil conflict—the notion that we could have, in a clean way that didn’t commit U.S. military forces, changed the equation on the ground there was never true.”

Well, his former secretary of state, Hillary Rodham Clinton, isn’t buying it. In an interview with me earlier this week, she used her sharpest language yet to describe the “failure” that resulted from the decision to keep the U.S. on the sidelines during the first phase of the Syrian uprising.

“The failure to help build up a credible fighting force of the people who were the originators of the protests against Assad—there were Islamists, there were secularists, there was everything in the middle—the failure to do that left a big vacuum, which the jihadists have now filled,” Clinton said.

At one point, I mentioned the slogan President Obama recently coined to describe his foreign-policy doctrine: “Don’t do stupid shit” (an expression often rendered as “Don’t do stupid stuff” in less-than-private encounters).

This is what Clinton said about Obama’s slogan: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.”

She softened the blow by noting that Obama was “trying to communicate to the American people that he’s not going to do something crazy,” but she repeatedly suggested that the U.S. sometimes appears to be withdrawing from the world stage.

But Hillary, what difference does it make? Oh, it suddenly becomes something to speak out and talk about to distance yourself from Obama’s failed policies because you want to run for president in 2016.

NBC/WSJ Poll: Barack Obama Approval Rating Hits All-Time Low … Also, 71% Say Country Headed in Wrong Direction

AMERICANS ARE FINALLY FED UP WITH BARACK OBAMA’S DISASTROUS PRESIDENCY … HOW’S THE “HOPEY-CHANGEY” STUFF WORKING OUT FOR YA?

In the most recent NBC/WSJ poll, Barack Obama’s approval rating has hit an all-time low as only 40% approve while an overwhelming 54% disapprove.  It appears the American people have finally grown weary of Obama’s disastrous presidency and 6 years into “Hope and Change,” Barack Obama has no one else left to blame but himself. He has had his opportunity to make positive change, and has only made things worse. An amazing 71% say that the country is headed in the wrong direction, while only 21% say we are on the right track. This number can be easily explained when individuals looks at the domestic and foreign policy issues and see nothing positive. The recession continues as the real unemployment rate is closer to 18%, the US debt continues to spiral out of control, median incomes are down, the US-Mexican border crisis, scandals abound and the the Middle East on the brink, failures in Iraq and Afghanistan, rise of terrorism and Obama siding with, not our allies. Even liberal Democrats have come to the reality that he is nothing but a liar.

Other poor poll results for Barack Obama handling domestic and foreign policy issues:

  • The economy: 53% disapprove – 42% approve
  • Foreign policy: 60% disapprove – 36% approve

Full poll results (pdf.)

Poll_NBC-WSJ 080614

Six in 10 Americans are dissatisfied with the state of the U.S. economy, more than 70 percent believe the country is headed in the wrong direction, and nearly 80 percent are down on the country’s political system, according to the latest NBC News / Wall Street Journal poll.

The frustration carries over to the nation’s political leaders, with President Barack Obama’s overall approval rating hitting a new low at 40 percent, and a mere 14 percent of the public giving Congress a thumbs up.

“We’re in the summer of our discontent,” said Democratic pollster Peter Hart, who conducted this survey with Republican pollster Bill McInturff. “Americans are cranky, unhappy… It is with everything going on the world.”

What’s more, a combined 71 percent say the recession personally impacted them “a lot” or “just some,” and 64 percent say it’s still having an effect on them.

Then there are these numbers in the poll:

  • 40 percent say someone in their household lost a job in the past five years;
  • 27 percent say they have more than $5,000 in student-loan debt for either themselves or their children;
  • 20 percent have more than $2,000 in credit card debt they are unable to pay off month to month;
  • 17 percent say they have a parent or a child over 21 years old living with them for financial or health reasons.

Check out the average job approval polling at RCP, if not for that bias Republican Rasmussen poll, Obama’s average approval would be at 40%.

Sarah Palin’s Challenge to the WAPO to Engage in the Same Aggressive Investigative Journalism as They Did with Richard Nixon and Watergate

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin challenges the Washington Post to cover Obama’s proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, “not even a smidgen,” in the same manner that they did in their tireless and aggressive manner they did President Richard Nixon and the Watergate scandal.

Sorry, I am not sure if MSM, integrity and good journalism can be used in the same sentence anymore.

Nixon_Watergate_WAPO

Sarah Palin’s Facebook Challenge to the Washington Post:

To reclaim your credibility (and the mainstream media’s, at large), I challenge you to engage in the same aggressive investigative journalism you courageously employed 42 years ago covering President Nixon. The public knows of our current president’s incompetence, denials, and cover-ups, but would be well served if we could count on your resources to dig deep for truth in all matters pertaining to Team Obama.

One example: your reporters kept tracking an obscure break-in story and that led to revealing a grave problem in the White House. The Washington Post’s reputation soared as the model of good journalism. Today, you’ve fallen like a lead balloon. Whereas you once doggedly covered the 18.5 minute gap in Nixon’s White House communications, you’ve virtually ignored the Obama Administration’s 1.2 million minutes of deleted communications by just one of the agencies under Obama’s executive branch. I’m speaking of the Lois Lerner IRS harassment-of-conservatives scandal wherein Lerner “lost” pertinent email communications. You’ve allowed Obama to skate with his proclamation that absolutely no wrongdoing occurred at the IRS, “not even a smidgen.”

The list of Obama abuses and impeachable offenses is long. I challenge you to lift a finger and help protect democracy, allow justice for all, and ensure domestic tranquility by doing your job reporting current corrupt events fairly. If not, you prove yourselves incompetent and in bed with Obama, not caring one iota about media integrity.

Those running the Washington Post’s show now, compared to those during the Nixon era, are too afraid of being uninvited to the permanent political class’ cocktail parties and petty gossip fests, making you all a bunch of wusses. I challenge you to get to work.

CNN Poll Redux: If Rematch of 2012 Presidental Election Were Held Today … Mitt Romney Beats Barack Obama 53% to 44%

AMERICA’S BUYER’S REMORSE …

According to a recent CNN poll, if a 2012 presidential election rematch was held today, Mitt Romney would defeat Barack Obama 53% to 44%. It would appear the the American voters are having buyer’s remorse and if they had the opportunity to redo the 2012 presidential election, they would vote much differently. In 2012 Obama won the popular vote, 51% to 47%; however, after American voters learned of Obama’s lies with regards to Obamacare, the IRS-targeting scandals of conservative non-profit groups, a continued poor economic recovery, one Obama foreign policy disaster after another and an electorate that has grown weary of this scandal ridden, apathetic, golf playing and fund-raising President … Obama now loses to Romney, 44% to 54%.

Suppose that for some reason a presidential election were being held today and you had to choose between Barack Obama and Mitt Romney. Who would you be more likely to vote for?

Full poll results.

Poll_CNN_Redux 2012 Prez Election

If a rematch of the 2012 presidential election were held today, GOP nominee Mitt Romney would top President Barack Obama in the popular vote, according to a new national survey.

But a CNN/ORC International poll also indicates that if Romney changes his mind and runs again for the White House, Hillary Clinton would best him by double digits in a hypothetical showdown.

According to the poll, if the 2012 election were somehow held again, Romney would capture 53% of the popular vote, with the President at 44%. Obama beat Romney 51%-47% in the popular vote in the 2012 contest. And he won the all-important Electoral College by a wider margin, 332 electoral votes to Romney’s 206.

Last November, an ABC News/Washington Post survey indicated that if the 2012 election were held again, Romney would have had a 49%-45% edge over Obama in the popular vote.

Nice try by CNN to add that Hillary Clinton beats Romney 55% to 42% and make the comparison that it is some how the same as the Obama-Romney redo. Leave it to the liberal media to compare apples to oranges. The Clinton/Romney poll is simply a popularity contest of a hypothetical election that will never take place. However, the Romney/Obama poll numbers are from a knowing public that has seen the Obama promises, political lies and scandals for themselves. There is nothing hypothetical about the facts that Barack Obama is a failed president, who is considered the worst president since WWII and many, if they had the chance would change their vote and never have reelected him.

Laura Ingraham Comes to Nashville, TN to Support Joe Carr for US Senate … Beat Lamar Rally … Retire Lamar, Vote for Joe Carr!!!

Laura Ingraham rocks the Millennium Maxwell House. 

Conservative talk show host Laura Ingraham came to Nashville, Tennessee in support of  Joe Carr in his efforts to defeat establishment GOP US Senator Lamar Alexander in the upcoming Republican primary. At the “Beat Lamar Rally” Ingraham held nothing back and blasted the out of touch incumbent Alexander as a senator who has lost touch with Tennessee in front of a crowd between 600 and 700 people. Laura Ingraham stated out with the old and in with the new as she compared Alexander to an old sweater. Ingraham looks to do for Carr what she did for Tea Party challenger David Brat in his shocking primary victory over Majority Leader Eric Cantor in Virginia.

TENNESSEE … ITS TIME TO TEACH ESTABLISHMENT REPUBLICANS AND THE GOP PARTY A LESSON THAT WILL NOT SOON FORGET!!!

Facebook: Joe Carr for US Senate

In a speech that seemed to tap into the audience’s deep-seated concerns over immigration and the pace of change in the country, Ingraham spoke for 45 minutes to a packed house at the Millennium Maxwell House Hotel that attended a “Beat Lamar” rally for Carr.

Comparing U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander to an old sweater, a hooked fish, beige wallpaper and a baseball player who has struck out, Ingraham urged listeners to believe Carr, a three-term state representative from Lascassas, can upset the incumbent senator in the Aug. 7 Republican primary.

She said Alexander has failed to stand up to liberals and Democrats, whom she said were more concerned with reshaping America than standing up for their interests.

“I’m here to tell you that he still is not hearing you,” she said.

Breitbart.com: Laura Ingraham at Rally for Joe Carr: Lamar Alexander is Old, Out of Touch, In With the New

“I say this, and I mean it: Lamar Alexander, he’s probably not an evil guy, he probably doesn’t hate the Tea Party, I don’t think he knows the Tea Party, I don’t think that’s what he’s about, I really don’t,” she said.

On amnesty, she explained, Alexander was wrong on the number one issue in the country, citing the recent Gallup poll showing that the issue was at the top of voters’ concerns. She criticized Alexander for supporting the Senate “Gang of Eight” immigration bill, working with Senate Democrats like Sens. Chuck Schumer (NY) and Dick Durbin (IL).

“What planet are you living on, are you that naive, that tired, or are you that bought off?” she asked, as the delighted crowd applauded.

Ingraham noted that the modern left was filled with “utter distain” for conservatives and their values, and said today’s Democrats weren’t the moderate Democrats of Alexander’s era.

“They think you are more dangerous any day of the week than ISIS or Al-Qaeda,” she said as the crowd booed.

Ingraham encouraged all voters in Tennessee to work hard for Carr in the remaining days of the election to send a loud message to the Washington establishment.

“We have to grab the establishment by the lapels and say very forcefully — No. You. Won’t,” she said.

The “Divider in Chief” Barack Obama … American Voters strongly Believe the United States is a More Divided Nation Under Obama

THE DIVIDED STATES OF AMERICA …

Since the beginning of his presidency and even before during the 2008 presidential election Barack Obama pitted black against white, poor against rich, old against the young, men against women, the USA against its allies, the government against the people and used the race card as often like he was playing golf. It should come as no surprise that the “community agitator” has divided America. That is was agitators do. According to a recent Rasmussen poll, 67% of likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it was four years ago.  It would seem that Barack Obama is not the one that we have been waiting for.

Obama Divider

 Sixty-seven percent (67%) of Likely U.S. Voters say America is a more divided nation than it was four years ago. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just seven percent (7%) think the country is less divided now, while 21% rate the level of division as about the same.(To see survey question wording, click here.)

Among voters who see more division or about the same level of it, 35% believe President Obama is to blame. But 34% point the finger at Republicans in Congress instead. Twenty-three percent (23%) say they’re both to blame. Just five percent (5%) attribute the division to something else.

One can only hope that Obama has not divided America beyond repair.

Sarah Palin Uses the “I” Word for Obama & Fires Back at Attorney General Eric Holder at Western Conservative Summit … “I Don’t Need Lectures From Eric Holder”

PALIN SHREDS THE ALL …

At the Western Conservative Summit in Denver, Colorado former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin slammed President Barack Obama, Attorney General Eric Holder and the gutless GOP establishment Congress who do nothing about a lawless president. Palin stated, you hear politicians these days denouncing Barack Obama saying he is a lawless, imperial president who ignores court orders and changes laws by executive fiat. And refuses to enforce laws that he just doesn’t like.” Palin went on to say, “That is true, but the question is … hey politicians what ya going to do about it?” Then she went there with the “I ” word. Palin said, “we need a little less talk and a lot more action …  There is only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors and it’s impeachment.”

Then Palin fired back at Eric Holder, “I don’t need lectures from Eric Holder, a guy, get this, so incompetent that he denied voter fraud existed even after someone claimed that they were Eric Holder and they got his ballot and they voted in D.C.”

“Oh dear, Eric. Not many cabinet members in U.S. history have been held in contempt of Congress, but he still wants to weigh in,” Palin said.

Palin pushed back on Holder’s claim that race might still be a major factor in America, calling it a “disgusting, false charge.”

“Try to get it,” Palin said. “Illegal immigration hurts all Americans – all races and backgrounds.”

Western Conservative Summit: 7-19-14

The Hill:

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin hit back at Attorney General Eric Holder on Saturday for criticizing her call to impeach President Obama over the border crisis.

“I don’t need lectures from Eric Holder, a guy – get this – so incompetent that he denied voter fraud existed even after someone claimed that they were Eric Holder and they got his ballot and they voted in D.C.,” Palin said at the Western Conservative Summit in Denver.

Palin was referring to an April 2012 video by a conservative activist that showed a man entering a Washington, D.C., polling center and requesting Holder’s ballot, offering up the official’s mailing address. The video did not actually show a ballot being cast in Holder’s name.

Earlier this month the former Republican vice presidential candidate called for the president’s impeachment for his handling of illegal immigration. “This unsecured border crisis is the last straw that makes the battered wife say ‘no mas,’” Palin wrote on the Breitbart website.

Holder said in an interview aired Sunday on ABC’s “This Week” that Palin “wasn’t a particularly good vice presidential candidate” and “an even worse judge of who ought to be impeached and why.”

“Oh dear, Eric. Not many cabinet members in U.S. history have been held in contempt of Congress, but he still wants to weigh in,” Palin said.

Palin pushed back on Holder’s claim that race might still be a major factor in America, calling it a “disgusting, false charge.”

“Try to get it,” Palin said. “Illegal immigration hurts all Americans – all races and backgrounds.”

Sean Hannity Blasts President Barack Obama in Blistering Monologue … ‘It’s Time for a Wake-Up Call’ … “It Is Time for You to Get Engaged.”

BARACK OBAMA, ITS TIME TO LEAD, NOT DIVIDE …

Last night Sean Hannity blasted Barack Obama in a blistering monologue begging, asking and demanding that this president ‘WAKE UP” and get engaged in the turmoil in both domestic and foreign policy. Much of which Obama has no one to blame but himself. Although he will try and pass the buck. It is becoming evident that Obama is the “Bystander” in Chief and refuses to step up to the plate and lead. But instead Obama attends fundraisers, plays golf and goes on vacation to Martha’s Vineyard.

Hannity stated that our world is in an alarming state of emergency, between Israel’s ground war into Gaza to protect itself from Hamas, Malaysia flight ML17 blown out of the sky in an unspeakable act killing innocent men, women and children, ISIS on the rise, Al-Qaeda on the move, the Middle East on fire, Russia and Putin flexing its muscles, Obama administration scandals like IRS-gate and Benghazi-gate, and a US domestic policy of out of control national debt and a discouraged work force. Let us not forget the crisis we have on our Southern border caused by Obama’s lack of protecting or borders. Then there is that Obamacare thing.

Hannity said, “It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities. So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.” Hannity went on to say, “Mr. President for you to stand up. It is time for you to lead. It’s time to skip for once your lavish million dollar Marha’s Vineyard vacation. It’s time for you to put down those golf clubs. I thing 180 rounds of gold is quite enough. It is time for you to lead by example. [...] You need to spend more time in The Oval Office. You need to be in the Situation Room. You may be surprised to learn what has actually happened in the six years since you have become the leader of the free world.”

“It is shocking to see a president of the United States, the free world, with such a lack of urgency and priorities,” Hannity said. “So I say to the president tonight: It is time for action, it’s time for urgency. It is time for you to get engaged.”

Hannity then skewered the president over his handling of domestic matters.

“Mr. President, why don’t you consider the events of these past 24 hours to be a very, very costly and deadly wake up call,” Hannity said. “And while all this was happening yesterday, you spent 40 seconds dealing with the killing of nearly 300 innocent people and for your secretary of state to tell Israel to restrain itself again and again. It’s time for a wakeup call.
