Pentagon Official: Obama Conducting Foreign Policy Based On Polling — Not US Safety

The Syrian civil war, which is about to enter its fourth year, has presented the Obama administration with one of its most difficult national security challenges to date. A political solution seems impossible if it means dictator Bashir al-Assad has to go. And meanwhile, as al-Qaida has grown in strength — including the potential to gain chemical weapons — the White House has crafted a foreign policy more closely based on domestic opinion polling than U.S. strategic interest, placing this country and its citizens at risk.

What began as protests against the brutal regime of al-Assad quickly escalated into a civil war resulting in well over 100,000 civilian casualties. Some humanitarian organizations put that number at over 150,000. To make matters worse, nearly all of the parties to the conflict are sworn enemies of the United States.

On one side you have al-Assad, a known war criminal suspected of having used chemical weapons against his own people, and his external state sponsors and supporters — Russia, the Lebanese Hezbollah and Iran.

POLL: Should Barack Obama be Impeached?

On the other side you have a coalition of rebel forces — an estimated 50 percent of whom have links to al-Qaida or have a similar ideology — and a large number of foreign fighters and terrorists. One terrorist rebel group, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), has been so extreme and barbaric in its actions and ideology that al-Qaida senior leadership took the unprecedented step of kicking ISIL out of al-Qaida’s terrorist umbrella network. Just imagine how bad you have to be to get kicked out of al-Qaida, a group known for decapitating Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl, throwing acid in the face of school girls and the 9/11 attacks.

With what appears to be all of America’s worst enemies fighting one another in a place far from America’s homeland, it’s no wonder that many Americans find themselves saying, “Good, let them all kill each other.” While that sounds nice in theory, the reality is that this protracted conflict has created the perfect environment for al-Qaida to thrive and begin plotting its next attack against the U.S.

Even that misses the whole point.  The scum-ban-n-chief's foreign policy is intended to

1. get Americans killed, at home and abroad.

2. destroy our economy

3. destroy our moral, resolve and courage

4. wipeout any vocal disgust or disagreement with his shenanigans.

5. solidify obedience to the ruling dynasty he's building

Does anyone get this yet?

He's a pot smoking junkie and can't run anything.  Get him out of our White House and now.

Polling,,,B/S, he did it because he could and because he knows very well Bonner will set down and say nothing about it.

WHEN YOU HAVE A MARXIST MUSLIM COMMUNIST "MANCHURIAN CANDIDATE WHO IS INTENT UPON THE TOTAL DESTRUCTION OF AMERICA, WHAT BETTER WAY THAN TO DECLARE WAR ON NON MEMBERS OF HIS BELOVED MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD?

Frankmusic:  I agree. Seems the father speaks perfect whatever that lingo is. As soon as he said it, obama was smiling big time.

I do not know the lady, but the two men here need to stand in front of a firing squad for treason.

No one has the balls to impeach that fool. It won't happen.

LIGHTER SIDE

ALERT ALERT

Breaking:  FBI Admits Comey Leaked Memos 
 That Were Classified   Material! 

The FBI turned over the Comey memos to Congress today after missing their deadline earlier in the week.

Congressional leaders threatened to impeach deep state leaders if they continued to stall on the memos.

Fired FBI Chief James Comey wrote about the memos in his book and leaked the documents to reporters last year. Congress has not yet had a chance to look at the memos — Until tonight.

AND—– THE MEMOS ARE CLASSIFIED!

Meaning Fired FBI Chief James Comey leaked CLASSIFIED DOCUMENTS TO THE PRESS.

From the report:

From the DOJ to Congress:

Therefore, pursuant to your request, we are providing the requested memoranda in both the redacted and unredacted formats for your convenience. Consistent with your request, we are providing an unclassified version of the documents redacted to remove any classified information.

The DOJ wrote Congressional leaders this evening.

Hannity: Good news for Trump, crushing blows for the left

GOP Congressional Leaders Nunes, Gowdy And Goodlatte Release Statement On Comey Memos

House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued a statement on the memos later tonight.

The House chairmen note that the memos prove that fired Director Comey never felt obstructed or threatened from his relationship with the president.

And… former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel.

The Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence published the statement tonight:

Today House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence Chairman Devin Nunes (R-Ca.), House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Va.), and House Oversight and Government Reform Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) issued the following statement:

“We have long argued former Director Comey’s self-styled memos should be in the public domain, subject to any classification redactions. These memos are significant for both what is in them and what is not.

Former Director Comey’s memos show the President made clear he wanted allegations of collusion, coordination, and conspiracy between his campaign and Russia fully investigated. The memos also made clear the ‘cloud’ President Trump wanted lifted was not the Russian interference in the 2016 election cloud, rather it was the salacious, unsubstantiated allegations related to personal conduct leveled in the dossier.

The memos also show former Director Comey never wrote that he felt obstructed or threatened. While former Director Comey went to great lengths to set dining room scenes, discuss height requirements, describe the multiple times he felt complimented, and myriad other extraneous facts, he never once mentioned the most relevant fact of all, which was whether he felt obstructed in his investigation.

The memos also make certain what has become increasingly clear of late: former Director Comey has at least two different standards in his interactions with others. He chose not to memorialize conversations with President Obama, Attorney General Lynch, Secretary Clinton, Andrew McCabe or others, but he immediately began to memorialize conversations with President Trump. It is significant former Director Comey made no effort to memorialize conversations with former Attorney General Lynch despite concerns apparently significant enough to warrant his unprecedented appropriation of the charging decision away from her and the Department of Justice in July of 2016.

These memos also lay bare the notion that former Director Comey is not motivated by animus. He was willing to work for someone he deemed morally unsuited for office, capable of lying, requiring of personal loyalty, worthy of impeachment, and sharing the traits of a mob boss. Former Director Comey was willing to overlook all of the aforementioned characteristics in order to keep his job. In his eyes, the real crime was his own firing.

The memos show Comey was blind to biases within the FBI and had terrible judgment with respect to his deputy Andrew McCabe. On multiple occasions he, in his own words, defended the character of McCabe after President Trump questioned McCabe.

Finally, former Director Comey leaked at least one of these memos for the stated purpose of spurring the appointment of Special Counsel, yet he took no steps to spur the appointment of Special Counsel when he had significant concerns about the objectivity of the Department of Justice under Attorney General Loretta Lynch.

As we have consistently said, rather than making a criminal case for obstruction or interference with an ongoing investigation, these memos would be Defense Exhibit A should such a charge be made.”
