In the recently released, but largely unheralded, National Security Strategy of the United States, the new buzz-word was “strategic patience.” As our unarmed Marines hastily departed Yemen, and ISIS closed in on their fellow devil-dogs in Iraq, the President was more than showing patience: he was making video about taking selfies.
The new National Security Strategy of the United States, which was a year late and strangely dropped on a Friday – a technique usually reserved for documents the administration doesn’t want to be read – opens with a a letter from President Obama. In it, he states that his answer to the threats and challenges that face the nation is “strategic patience.” Instead of tackling the dangers of the word proactively and head-on, America will play a waiting game. This fits neatly into previous approaches from the White House that have emphasized “leading from behind.” Given the geopolitical realties of today’s world, American voters should draw their own report card of what a reactive and “patient” approach has brought the Republic in the last six years:
  • The Global Jihadist Movement: Not only is Al Qaeda not on the ropes, but ISIS /The Islamic State has overtaken it as a fully-fledged insurgency which is so powerful that latest reports have it attacking the base in Iraq where US Marines are deployed to assist the Iraqi army in standing itself back up after being routed last Summer. As media attention focuses again on the Middle East, especially after the gruesome immolation of Lt. Moaz al-Kasasbeh of the Royal Jordanian Air Force, the Jihadist movement grows ever stronger in Africa, with Boko Haram killing thousands and enslaving hundreds of Christian girls. Back home, we have the unprecedented statement by the director of the FBI that the Bureau is investigating ISIS activity in 49 states of the union. (Every state except Sarah Palin’s Alaska).
  • On the Shia side of this global war, we see that not only is Iran very deftly outmaneuvering the administration when it comes to its nuclear program, its proxies are gaining ground in South Asia and the Middle East, most especially in Yemen, where the Houthis have captured the capital. This despite the fact that Yemen was lauded last year by the President as one of the true success stories of his counterterrorism strategy.
  • The most populous and important Arab Muslim state, Egypt, has not responded well to “strategic patience” – or rather, strategic neglect and rejection of the White House. When the fundamentalist Muslim Brotherhood government of Mohammad Morsi was deposed by General Sisi, Cairo became the black sheep of the region as far as the administration is considered. This despite the fact that now-president Sisi is the only Muslim leader since 9/11 to openly call for a “religious revolution” in Islam aimed against the violent jihadists that threaten his nation as much as ours.
  • With the “pivot to Asia” declared by then-Secretary Clinton resulting in nominal, if any actual, redirection of our attention to the region, China has proceeded to build up its military and use it to intimidate its neighbors and lay claim to new territories in ways that could very easily lead to a shooting war in the region.
  • And in Europe, Vladimir Putin has managed to break a 60-plus year international taboo by using force to redraw borders and annex the territory of a neighboring state. Clearly, the former KGB colonel believes in being a pro-active leader.
This is just a short version of a disturbing list that could be made much longer. The empirical truth on the ground is that we have enemies at home and abroad, enemies who believe neither in “leading from behind” nor in “strategic patience.” At the same time, the most powerful nation the world has ever seen has a Commander-in-Chief who is Absent With Out Leave.

Obama is a clown. Anybody disagree?

We will as long as we do our homework and elect a President and his family that have class. Do not listen to the MSM or the flowery speeches by anyone. Actions need to count more.

My personal view is nominal.  My personal worry is for my kids and grand kids who will have to live through, and deal with the results of this fool's presidency.

wonder how patient he would be if it were his kids under threat of beheading. Then again he is one of the coldest person I have ever seen.

WHILE OUR TROOPS ARE LEFT BASICALLY DEFENSELESS TO DEAL WITH THE MOST EVIL ENEMY ON THIS SIDE OF HELL, POTUS TAKES SELFIES . YOU CANT GET ANY LOWER THAN THAT .

For a long time now the United States has been the only country strong enough that others listen to what we think and therefore our opinion has influenced world politics for the last 60 years. The Obama left says we have no right to tell anyone else what to do but they turn right around and tell everyone what to do when it suits them.

The truth is that with great power comes great responsibility. Abdicating that responsibility out of some silly notion of "fairness" is ridiculous and irresponsible. The vacuum created by Obama's foreign policy has resulted in a world in which anarchy is more and more prevalent. The disparity between what the Obama Administrations says and what it does tells me that chaos is what they want. The fact that their various press relations people find it hard to impossible to explain his actions tells you that they are trying to conceal their real intent. People whose intent is honest do not need two days and multiple meetings to answer a simple question from the press.

One thing is clear, the Obama administration is not being honest with the American people or the leaders of our allied countries. Millions of people know what I am saying is true but few will directly confront this administration out of respect for the office of President or for fear of the consequences. For those operating out of respect let me suggest that Barack Hussein Obama and his accomplices have trashed every diplomatic protocol, disrespected the traditions and leaders of every country he has visited, shown compassion and understanding for no one and trashed every bit of our tradition and culture. In short he has trampled on everything the Presidency of the United States has stood for since its inception. This man is owed all of the respect he has shown the office which is NONE.   For those concerned about the repercussions of speaking truth to power, there is reason to fear but acting in spite of fear is called courage. We could use a healthy dose of that about now!

I am so tired of the theater, I don't even want to watch the news anymore, we are being played, no President in history would ever get away with all he has done the problem is our Congress, they are not protecting or listen to the People of the US, either they are scared of the Blacks or bought off,  we need to put pressure on them either they do the job we sent them there to do or they too will be accountable for treason as well they are turning the other eye, its all theater don't waste your time or frustration, its all the 1 World Order George Soros is running the ship he needs to go then we must  demand Congress to rid the Muslim Brotherhood connection in the WH not until then will I believe we have any control, its in the hands of God it is too big for us just to shout out we need to march and demand all in the WH if they go along to get along they must step down, this fraud needs to be removed its all Congress fault they will not make a move, we have so much on this fraud and his regime and yet they turn the other eye may God help us all we need a revolution then and only then will they be scared of the People of these US Amen

" The empirical truth on the ground is that we have enemies at home and abroad, ....."

The enemies abroad cannot be confronted and defeated because the enemies at home are, sadly, those of our own government.

The enemies at home are plural, and reside in virtually every branch of government, from local to federal, and the agencies of each. That is not to suggest that all government is bad, it is not, but all government is indeed infected with it.

Like any infection, if left unattended or recognized, it will most certainly worsen, and it certainly has. The same mindset of a hanging or dimpled chad ballot counter in the election of 2000 has now progressed to congress, the executive, the supreme court, state legislatures and local governments, infiltrating the minds of many into acts of delusion while professing they are doing the business of the people.

Boehner, proudly and forcefully, proclaims the House has done its Constitutional duty by sending a host of bills to the Senate, yet continues to adamantly refuse impeachment proceedings. And all others in congress allow Boehner to continue without any effective protest at all, and in doing so let Obama continue transforming America unrestrained, and thus supporting him in doing so.

If an Article V COS ever commences the one thing it must address is the impeachment of all, without fail, of those who refuse to be bound by their oath as required by the second and third  paragraphs of Article VI of the Constitution.

The Supreme Law of the Land has been ignored, along with God who purposed the founding of the Nation.

My opinion.

Our leader has been AWOL since first day of first term.

ALERT ALERT

Joe Biden Vows: Give Taxpayer-Funded Obamacare To All Illegal Aliens In U.S.

Former Vice President and 2020 Democrat presidential primary candidate Joe Biden is vowing to give Obamacare, funded by American taxpayers, to all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens living in the United States.

During an interview with Telemundo’s Jose Diaz-Balart, Biden forgot that Obamacare technically bans illegal aliens from enrolling in healthcare plans — although illegal aliens are still able to obtain subsidized and free healthcare at Americans’ expense — and promised that under his plan, all 11 to 22 million illegal aliens would be able to get Obamacare.

The exchange went as follows:

DIAZ-BALART: When I … NBC moderated that first debate with you, I didn’t … I don’t recall a clear answer, under your plan should … would the 11, 12 million undocumented immigrants that live in the United States, that have been here many for generations, would they have access …

BIDEN: Yes.

DIAZ-BALART: — to health insurance.

BIDEN: Yes, they … if they can buy into the system like everybody else.

DIAZ-BALART: Because you know, in [Obamacare] they can’t.

BIDEN: Yeah. Yeah, I know. Well they can, that’s my point. They continue to be able to do that.

DIAN-BALART: They cannot under the ObamaCare.

BIDEN: Well and that’s my point, they will though. They will be able to buy into … [illegal aliens] would be able to buy in, just like anyone else could.

Biden joins Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT), Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and South Bend, Indiana, Mayor Pete Buttigieg — among other 2020 Democrats — in committing to forcing American taxpayers to pay for healthcare for illegal aliens who arrive in the U.S.

Already, due to loopholes, American taxpayers are spending nearly $20 billion every year to provide illegal aliens with subsidized healthcare, emergency room visits, and other health services.

Under the 2020 Democrats’ plan to provide taxpayer-funded healthcare to all illegal aliens living in the U.S., Americans would be billed potentially $660 billion every decade just to cover the costs. Other research has found that the plan would cost Americans at least $23 billion every year.

As Breitbart News has reported, experts have said that giving taxpayer-funded healthcare to effectively all foreign nationals who can make it to America’s borders would drive “strong incentives for people with serious health problems to enter the country or remain longer than their visas allow in order to get government-funded care.”

Despite 2020 Democrats’ continued push for taxpayer-funded healthcare for illegal aliens, American voters are overwhelmingly opposed to the plan. The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC News survey revealed that the healthcare-for-illegal-aliens plan is the least popular policy position, with opposition from 62 percent of U.S. voters.

Similarly, a CNN poll from July discovered that 63 percent of likely swing voters oppose providing healthcare to illegal aliens, along with nearly 6-in-10 of all likely U.S. voters and 61 percent of moderates. A Rasmussen Reports survey also found that likely voters, by a majority of 55 percent, oppose giving healthcare to even the most low-income illegal aliens.
