Fox News Poll: Barack Obama Hits All-Time Low Job Approval at 38%, 54% Disapprove … Only 33% Believe Obama has Improved America’s Image around the World
Barack Obama’s 38% job approval is well deserved, he did it the old-fashioned way … HE EARNED IT!!!
Can you say ‘EPIC FAILURE’ and it would appear the American people may finally be fed up with Obama’s disastrous presidency. According to the most recent Fox News poll, President Barack Obama has hit an all-time low in his job approval, as an anemic 38% approve of the job he is doing while a whopping 54% disapprove. But wait, a look inside the numbers and the news gets even worse for Obama and Democrats. Obama’s numbers on healthcare, the economy and foreign policy are abysmal.
Just how many Democrats are going to want this president near him during the 2014 elections?
For the first time in a Fox News poll, fewer than four voters in ten — 38 percent — approve of President Obama’s job performance. Fifty-four percent disapprove. Before now Obama’s worst job rating was 40-55 percent in November 2013. Last month 42 percent approved and 53 percent disapproved (February 2014).
Approval of Obama among Democrats stands at 71 percent, near its 69 percent record low (September 2013). For independents, 28 percent approve, which is also near the 25 percent all-time low among this group (July 2013). And approval of Obama among Republicans hits a new low of five percent.
Full poll results can be read HERE.
Most all of Obama’s poll numbers are now in the 30′s. Across the board whether it be domestic or foreign policy, Obama has failed. Now we can only hope America can survive another 3 years with this president.
- Healthcare: 36% Approve - 59% Disapprove
- Economy: 36% Approve - 58% Disapprove
- Foreign Policy: 33% Approve – 56% Disapprove
- Do you think the country is better off than it was five years ago, or not? 34% Yes - 60% No – 5% the Same
Wait, let’s try to find some good news for Obama and his lockstep Democrats in their poll. Oh sorry, there is none. On items that Americans were asked as to whether Barack Obama mostly succeeded or Mostly failed, Obama got an “F”. What happened to that president who said that he would make America respected once again in the world?
- Making the country safer: 41% Mostly Succeeded – 48% Mostly Failed (In Oct. 2012 Obama’s poll numbers were 52% – 38%)
- Improving health care: 36% Mostly Succeeded – 57% Mostly Failed
- Creating new jobs: 33% Mostly Succeeded – 59% Mostly Failed
- Improving America’s image around the world: 33% Mostly Succeeded – 59% Mostly Failed

US Homeland Security is warning airlines to beware of possible terror shoe bombs. Hmm, haven’t the Islamists already tried this?
According to accounts, there is no specific threat or known plot, but obviously the NSA must have overheard someones cell phone conversation or read their emails. As reported at NBC News, several officials familiar with the advisory that “very recent intelligence” considered credible warns of possible attempts to attack passenger jets using explosives concealed in shoes. One would have thought after the failed attempt by Richard Reid, that the cat would have been out of the bag as to this method of delivering a bomb. Sadly, these terrorists are persistent on killing innocent people in the name of Allah.
Hmm, I guess Al-Qaeda is not on the run, they might even be in the friendly skies.
The U.S. government has warned airlines to pay particular attention to the possibility of terrorists attempting to hide explosives in shoes, a result of new intelligence, according to two people familiar with the situation.
The officials stressed there is no specific threat or known plot.
Intelligence collected by the United States and other countries has indicated terror groups have been working on new shoe-bomb designs, the sources said Wednesday.
That knowledge prompted the Department of Homeland Security to warn airlines to be on the lookout for explosives hidden in shoes on flights from overseas to the United States, they said.
A separate intelligence official underscored the warning was issued out of a sense of heightened caution.
“This threat is not specific or credible enough to require a specific response. DHS often issues these alerts out of an abundance of caution, but this does not necessarily rise to the level of facilitating a response,” the intelligence official said.
New Olympic Terror Threats Ahead of Sochi Winter Games … US Warns Airlines About Toothpaste Tube Bomb
Just ahead of the start of the Sochi Winter Olympics and a new terror threat …
The United States Department of Homeland Security has issued a warning to US and some foreign airlines travelers to Russia for the Sochi Olympic Games to be on the look out for tubes of toothpaste. According to the ABC report, that cited a senior U.S. official, intelligence has indicated that toothpaste tubes can hold ingredients that could be used to construct a bomb aboard a plane. The information “specifically targets flights to Russia.” This threat was also linked to the arrests of two women in France. The women, reportedly 23- and 30-years-old, were of Chechen descent. Leading up to the Olympics in Sochi, there have been many terror attacks in the region, concerns of black widows already being in the area, and promises by Chechen terrorists of delivering “surprise packages.”
The Department of Homeland Security has issued a warning to U.S. and some foreign airlines traveling to Russia for the Olympic Games to be on the lookout for toothpaste containers, which some intelligence indicates may actually hold ingredients that could be used to construct a bomb aboard a plane, a senior U.S. official told ABC News.
The official did not provide further details about the warning or the intelligence that prompted it, but an official with the Department of Homeland Security, while declining to discuss the specific warning, said the department “regularly shares relevant information with domestic and international partners, including those associated with international events such as the Sochi Olympics.”
“While we are not aware of a specific threat to the homeland at this time, this routine communication is an important part of our commitment to making sure we meet that priority,” the official said. “As always, our security apparatus includes a number of measures, both seen and unseen, and DHS will continue to adjust security measures to fit an ever evolving threat environment.”
A federal law enforcement source said the information is largely intended for foreign carriers and the generic threat is not directed at the U.S. homeland. The Russian government has been informed, the source said.
Going to the Olympics, leave your toothpaste at home.
In an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper last week, U.S. President Barack Obama said that he believes “Sochi is safe.” Great, this coming from the man who said, if you like your healthcare plan, you can keep your health care plan. Some how this is hardly a vote of confidence for the Winter Olympic Games.
Former Defense Secretary Robert Gates RIPS Barack Obama’s Leadership in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War” … Obama Douted, “Outright Convinced It” [the Surge Mission] Would Fail”
Commander in Chief?
Really, Barack Obama, the so-called Commander in Chief sent 30,000 of America’s bravest and treasured resources into harms way in the Afghanistan surge and did not even believe in the mission? Robert Gates writes in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War,” the president was “skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail.”
Why would some one commit troops to a mission that one did not believe in? This is enormously troubling. Was it merely political?
Barack Obama: Commander in Chief or President Photo-Op?
In a new memoir, former defense secretary Robert Gates unleashes harsh judgments about President Obama’s leadership and his commitment to the Afghanistan war, writing that by early 2010 he had concluded the president “doesn’t believe in his own strategy, and doesn’t consider the war to be his. For him, it’s all about getting out.”
Leveling one of the more serious charges that a defense secretary could make against a commander in chief sending forces into combat, Gates asserts that Obama had more than doubts about the course he had charted in Afghanistan. The president was “skeptical if not outright convinced it would fail,” Gates writes in “Duty: Memoirs of a Secretary at War.”
Obama, after months of contentious discussion with Gates and other top advisers, deployed 30,000 more troops in a final push to stabilize Afghanistan before a phased withdrawal beginning in mid-2011. “I never doubted Obama’s support for the troops, only his support for their mission,” Gates writes.

VIDEO – CNN: Et tu Bob? Fmr. Defense Secretary slams Obama on Afghanistan in new memoir
At a March 3, 2011, National Security Council meeting, Gates writes, the president opened with a “blast.” Obama criticized the military for “popping off in the press” and said he would push back hard against any delay in beginning the withdrawal.
According to Gates, Obama concluded, “?‘If I believe I am being gamed . . .’ and left the sentence hanging there with the clear implication the consequences would be dire.”
Gates continues: “I was pretty upset myself. I thought implicitly accusing” Petraeus, and perhaps Mullen and Gates himself, “of gaming him in front of thirty people in the Situation Room was inappropriate, not to mention highly disrespectful of Petraeus. As I sat there, I thought: the president doesn’t trust his commander, can’t stand [Afghanistan President Hamid] Karzai, doesn’t believe in his own strategy, and doesn’t consider the war to be his. For him, it’s all about getting out.”
Arizona Governor Steven Seagal?
Steven Seagal, the actor and martial arts expert says he is considering a run to be the governor of Arizona. Seagal said in an interview with ABC15 that the number one problem facing America today is open border. The 61 year old actor stated that because of the US open borders “any type of terrorism could come, and does come”. Seagal had a pretty much common sense and factual approach on his views of borders amnesty and the need to secure our borders. Seagal goes on to discuss his association with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio and that when they arrest someone who commits a crime, they do not care whether they are Mexican, Irish, French, German or Chinese.
Seagal says he’s had discussions with Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio about the prospective bid, but has other priorities to consider.
The 61-year-old Seagal made the comments while talking about his newly released reality series “Steven Seagal – Lawman: Maricopa County” (The Lost Episodes.)
According to Seagal, the number one problem facing the U.S. is its open borders.
He told ABC that the country’s leading problem today is open borders, ‘I don’t think our biggest problem is Islamist terrorism in America. Oh I don’t think that’s it at all,’ he said. ‘The biggest problem is open borders. I think that across these borders, any type of terrorism can occur.’
He believes that open borders are, ‘ a tremendous oversight by the current administration.’
He quoted Reagan who said, ‘If you don’t have security on your borders you don’t have a country.’
One other issue Seagal would address is that of amnesty.
‘You have to be very careful with blanket pardons,’ he said.If you’re gonna pardon people you should do a background on them to make sure they’re safe for society.’
Seagal also told ABC that all he and Arpaio care about on their tv show is ‘whether or not you’re a criminal.’
He says that he and the tough sheriff do not discriminate based on race or nationality.
Far Left Journalist Glenn Greenwald Says to MSNBC: I Defend Snowden Like You Defend Obama “24 Hours a Day”
When the Far Left attack each other … with the Truth.
Lefty journalist Glenn Greenwald defended himself and his actions when he was asked by MSNBC’s Kristen Welker if he was acting as a spokesman for whistle-blower Edward Snowden. Greenwald’s response was priceless, “We’re on MSNBC now, where close to 24 hours a day the agenda of President Obama and the Democratic Party are promoted, defended, glorified.” OUCH!!! But he did not stop there … “Sure, I do defend him just like people on MSNBC defend President Obama and his officials and Democratic Party leaders 24 hours a day.”
Sit back, grab the popcorn and a beverage and watch Lib on Lib duke it out …
I think that’s ludicrous is what I say to that,” Greenwald shot back. “Every journalist has an agenda. We’re on MSNBC now, where close to 24 hours a day the agenda of President Obama and the Democratic Party are promoted, defended, glorified, the agenda of the Republican Party is undermined. That doesn’t mean the people who appear on MSNBC aren’t journalists, they are.”
He said that every journalist has a “viewpoint” and he doesn’t hide the fact that he finds Snowden’s decision to expose the NSA’s surveillance programs “heroic.”
“Sure, I do defend him just like people on MSNBC defend President Obama and his officials and Democratic Party leaders 24 hours a day.”
It’s not just me who is laughing that anyone on BSNBC would have the CO-JONES to ask anyone if what they did affects their journalist integrity, the Lonely Conservative is getting a good chuckle herself.

GOOD GRIEF, ARE YOU KIDDING ME … I FEEL SO MUCH SAFER … WAR ON
TERRORISM SOCK MONKEYS!!!
A TSA agent confiscated “Rooster Monkburn’s” six shooter and threaten to call the police on Phyllis May of Redmond, Washington at the St. Louis, Missouri airport. Just one small, actually very small detail, Rooster Monkburn is a sock monkey and the pistol confiscated might be about 2 inches in size. REALLY, you can’t make this stuff up. So much for common sense these days. The TSA agent actually said, she was confiscating the tiny toy because “it looks like a gun.” Wow, so does that mean if I pointed my fore finger and thumb like a gun, they would cut my fingers off because they looked like a gun as well?
So instead of racially profiling terrorists, we disarm sock monkeys instead. You know, there is stupid, there is frigging stupid and then there is TSA stupid. When exactly did we lose all semblance of common sense in America?
“His pistol was in there,” she says of the sock monkey “Rooster Monkburn,” a take-off on John Wayne character “Rooster Cogburn” from the film “True Grit”. May and her husband were going through the screening process when she noticed that one of her bags was missing.
“And the (TSA agent) held it up and said ‘whose is this?’” she said. “I realized oh, my God this is my bag.”
May said the TSA agent went through the bag, through the sewing supplies and found the two-inch long pistol.
“She said ‘this is a gun,’” said May. “I said no, it’s not a gun it’s a prop for my monkey.”
“She said ‘If I held it up to your neck, you wouldn’t know if it was real or not,’ and I said ‘really?’” said May.
The TSA agent told May she would have to confiscate the tiny gun and was supposed to call the police.
“I said well go ahead,” said May. “And I said really? You’re kidding me right, and she said no it looks like a gun.”
“She took my monkey’s gun,” said May, who has retained her sense of humor.
No terrorist groups, including the Taliban, Al-Qaeda, Hamas, Hezbollah or the Muslim Brotherhood, have taken credit for “Rooster Monkburn” and his pistol who we all know his real name is Abdul.
Jay Leno Says: President Obama Promised Iran ‘If You Like Your Uranium, You Can Keep Your Uranium’ to Get Them to Sign Nuclear Deal
Exactly why is NBC getting rid of Jay Leno, he is hysterical …
Late night talk show host Jay Leno has finally figured out how President Barack Hussein Obama got Iran to sign the nuclear agreement. He said during his monologue, “Well, apparently what got the Iranians to sign this deal was the promise from President Obama. He told the Iranians, if you like your uranium, you can keep your uranium”. Sadly, if this matter was not so serious and dangerous to the security of the United States and our allies, it might be even more funny.
From Washington Free Beacon:
JAY LENO: Well, apparently what got the Iranians to sign this deal was the promise from President Obama. He told the Iranians, if you like your uranium, you can keep your uranium. So, I don’t know. Well, President Obama’s approval rating is now down at the lowest point of his presidency. It’s down to 37%. In fact, here’s how bad it’s gotten. You know the Thanksgiving turkey he’s pardoning this week? The turkey said, no pictures. I don’t want pictures. [ laughter ]

UNREAL, Barack Obama Has Not Called Israel Yet on Signed Iran Nuclear Agreement … Israeli PM Netanyahu Calls It a “Historical Mistake” Then Kerry Says There is “No Daylight” Between Israel & the US”
The Audacity of Obama and his Minions, Ain’t No Way to Treat America’s Friends Barack … Israel PM Netanyahu finding out what it s like to be an American lied to and disrespected by the Obama Administration.
How is the following possible? Not only did President Barack Obama not call Israeli officials before the nuclear agreement was signed last night in Geneva between Iran and the six world powers, but as of this morning as reported on FOX News, Obama still hasn’t called Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu about the agreement. This is just simply shameful and disrespectful. Israel is our greatest ally in the Middle East and a direct target of Iran. Just this past week in a speech, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei described Israel as “a rabid dog” and the public responded with calls of ‘Death to America! Death to Israel!’
Maybe Obama previously told Netanyahu that we have to pass the nuclear deal to see what’s in it and promised him that they can keep their same secure Israel, if they like it?
Following the signing of the nuclear agreement, Israeli PM Netanyahu blasted it as a ‘historic mistake.’
Israel on Sunday lashed out at the Geneva nuclear deal brokered by world powers as being heavily stacked in Iran’s favour, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling it a “historic mistake.”
Following a months-long diplomatic campaign warning of the dangers of easing economic sanctions on Iran in exchange for steps to curb its contested nuclear programme, senior cabinet ministers chimed in, with one saying Israel reserved the right to strike Iran on its own.
Netanyahu told his cabinet on Sunday that “what was achieved yesterday in Geneva is not a historic agreement but rather a historic mistake,” according to a post on spokesman Ofir Gendelman’s Twitter account.
Then Obama’s Secretary of State
Thurstan Howell III John Kerry goes on ‘This Week’ with George Stephanopoulos and lies that Israel supported the nuclear deal with Iran, claiming there is “no daylight” between Israel and the US”. UNBELIEVABLE. No daylight? There is so much daylight you could drive a truck thru it, or a nuclear missile. This administration is just incapable of telling the truth on anything. This is just frightening. How in the hell did these people get reelected? The lied about taking over 1/6th of the United State’s economy with Obamacare, now they are doing the same with ours and Israel’s national security.
“Israel and the United States absolutely share the same goal here. There is no daylight between us, with respect to what we want to achieve at this point,” Kerry told “This Week” anchor George Stephanopoulos shortly after the deal was reached. “We both want to make it certain Iran cannot have a nuclear weapon. And Iran cannot be in a place where they can breakout and suddenly get that nuclear weapon.”
NSA Collecting Hundreds of Millions of Contact Lists from Personal E-mail & IM Accounts, Including Americans
The government may be shut down, but the NSA is not …
Nothing is off limits to the NSA and so much for anything personal privacy. According to the NSA and their collection techniques, we are guilty until proven innocent. According to the WAPO, “Each day, the presentation said, the NSA collects contacts from an estimated 500,000 buddy lists on live-chat services as well as from the inbox displays of Web-based e-mail accounts.” But don’t worry, President Barack Obama previously stated that the NSA’s email collecting program “does not apply to U.S. citizens.” Of course this is the same individual who says that the Obamacare website is a success, it is just “glitchy”.
The National Security Agency is harvesting hundreds of millions of contact lists from personal e-mail and instant messaging accounts around the world, many of them belonging to Americans, according to senior intelligence officials and top-secret documents provided by former NSA contractor Edward Snowden.
The collection program, which has not been disclosed before, intercepts e-mail address books and “buddy lists” from instant messaging services as they move across global data links. Online services often transmit those contacts when a user logs on, composes a message, or synchronizes a computer or mobile device with information stored on remote servers.
Rather than targeting individual users, the NSA is gathering contact lists in large numbers that amount to a sizable fraction of the world’s e-mail and instant messaging accounts. Analysis of that data enables the agency to search for hidden connections and to map relationships within a much smaller universe of foreign intelligence targets.
During a single day last year, the NSA’s Special Source Operations branch collected 444,743 e-mail address books from Yahoo, 105,068 from Hotmail, 82,857 from Facebook, 33,697 from Gmail and 22,881 from unspecified other providers, according to an internal NSA PowerPoint presentation. Those figures, described as a typical daily intake in the document, correspond to a rate of more than 250?million a year.
From The Hill … Maybe some one might want to define and quantify what “required to minimize the ‘acquisition, use and dissemination’ of contacts of U.S. citizens” is!
Shawn Turner, a spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said the program is aimed at “valid foreign intelligence targets,” including terrorists, drug smugglers and human traffickers. He added that the NSA is required to minimize the “acquisition, use and dissemination” of contacts of U.S. citizens.
But of course because of media bias, we hear really nothing of this invasion of privacy. However, as the Lonely Conservative states, image if a Republican was in the White House?
