“If we have to use force, it is because we are America. We are the indispensable nation. We stand tall. We see farther into the future.”
— Madeleine Albright, secretary of state (1997–2001), Clinton administration

It is a judgment on Barack Obama’s timorous, apologetic, and irresponsible conduct of foreign affairs that Madeleine Albright’s words, spoken little more than 15 years ago, now sound as antique as a pronouncement by Harry Truman at the onset of the Cold War, the great challenge America confronted bravely and without equivocation generations ago. Obama has set in motion policies meant to make America far from indispensable — a diminished nation that “leads from behind,” if at all; a nation with a downsized military, chronically uncertain about its meaning and its mission as it skulks in the wings of the world stage.

Albright made her statement about Iraq when Democrats were still supporting their country’s confrontation with the sadistic dictator Saddam Hussein, and before they defected from the war, shortly after its battles were under way. Obama opposed America’s war with Iraq and then opposed the military surge that finally brought victory. As president, Obama presided over the withdrawal of all American forces from Iraq, against the wishes of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who wanted a continuing military presence — withdrawal paid for in the blood of thousands of American men and women in arms. Obama thus turned that benighted nation over to the malign influences of America’s chief enemy in the Middle East, Iran.

Far from shouldering his responsibility as the commander-in-chief of America’s global War on Terror and embracing it as this generation’s equivalent of the Cold War, Obama showed his distaste for the entire enterprise by dropping the term “War on Terror” and replacing it with an Orwellian phrase — “overseas contingency operations.” Minimizing the Islamist threat to the United States is not an oversight of the Obama administration; that is its policy.

I do hope this Benghazi scandal will bring obummer down and impeach him & carry poor uncle joe with him.

This is a truly extraordinary article; READ IT. It'll give new shape and meaning to a lot of stuff you already know.

Make that 'a whole lot of very scary stuff' you already know. Only now you'll know why and you'll be even more scared.

Here's just one take-away lesson: Obama is just the latest lead player in a several movie series that's not getting better and cannot end happily.

Here's the link from this post:

He looks pitiful, no class, arrogant geek,use once and throw away,please donot recycle,he's leading us down the hole of no return,so let's hope and pray he is ousted by "The only Judge not tainted,"let him judge him and send him back home ( Kenya ) if they want him back since he said he wasn't born there,like he was ashamed of his heritage ,the man with no country to call home ???

The Smiling Cobra.

That Kenyan born Marxist Muslim "Manchurian Candidate" betrayed America the day that Bill and Hilliary Clinton, The Illuminati Elites and a very stupid majority of Americans got him illegally elected to the office of POTUS!

Don Cordell for President is here to Restore not Change America when you are finally tired of complaining and ready to elect someone who will stop the selling of our nation. I'm not a Republican or Democrat, but an Independent not controlled by either party.

How do I deceive thee..........let me count the ways, Sound familiar?  At this point in time the answer to this question concerning Obama and his cabinet apointees is insurmountable.  A better question would be: name some of the things that Obama did to help this  Great Nation.   #1-                                       .   Enough said. Need I say more?

Obamas whole rotten life revolved around Marxist, commies, haters of America from his MOMME to

 bill ayres the domestic terrorist and that rotten demonic spirit  the evil rev wright. Obamas brian is programed for Americas destruction. he like all tyrant's past and present must stopped to save our nation.

He is a total embarrassment to this country! He may as well wear a pink shirt and march with those stupid CODE P.I.N.K. anti-American and anti-Military bimbos and bozos!

    Would it not be simpler to ask " how did Obamass NOT betray America ?

SICK: Leprosy On The Rise In Los Angeles 

Ahh, the joys of open borders and Democrat leadership.

California is not just a public toilet but now there is evidence that leprosy is on the rise in Los Angeles County.

Barack Obama changed US law in 2016 and allowed immigrants with blistering STDs and leprosy to migrate to the US.

Medscape reported:

Leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, is rarely seen in the United States, but cases continue to emerge in Los Angeles County, a new report says.

“Hansen’s disease still exists, and we need to educate medical students and physicians,” coauthor Dr. Maria Teresa Ochoa from Keck Medical Center of the University of Southern California, Los Angeles, told Reuters Health by email.

Dr. Ochoa and colleagues identified 187 patients with the disease in a review of medical records from their leprosy clinic spanning 1973 to 2018. Most patients were Latino, originating from Mexico, and they experienced a median delay in diagnosis of more than three years, the team reports JAMA Dermatology, online August 7.

Multibacillary leprosy (MB) cases outnumbered paucibacillary leprosy (PB) cases by nearly eight to one (88.6% vs. 11.4%, respectively), and Latino patients were more likely than non-Latino patients to have MB, as were patients from Central or South America (versus other regions).

Most patients (80.7%) received multidrug therapy, and most (92.6%) received antibiotics for more than two years, especially if they had MB.

Only about half of patients (56.7%) had World Health Organization (WHO) grade 0 disability (no signs or symptoms suggestive of leprosy or disability) at the one-year follow-up, whereas 16.0% had grade 1 disability (loss of protective sensation) and 26.2% had grade 2 disability (visible deformity) at the last follow-up.

Among the patients who lost protective sensation, 87.7% (50/57) did not regain it following therapy.
