Obama's Soft Words on Terrorism and Genocide

Obama's chief responsibilities, as he defines them, are golfing, and managing domestic political expectations.

When a President speaks fulsomely about a foreign policy crisis, he informs the public in no uncertain terms that something is badly wrong in the world.

He also, as a natural consequence, inculcates in them an expectation that something will be done about it.

If the public is informed that something is badly wrong in the world, they tend to give the president lower approval ratings, at least until they see that something will be done about it, at which point his ratings rise to their previous level, or, if the something done about it actually improves the situation, his ratings rise above where they'd been.

So alerting the public that Something Is Wrong creates a political risk for a president. Particularly if the president is strongly inclined not to do anything at all about it.

In that case, the president does not want to animate the public, rouse their passion, and stir their consciences. Doing so, of course, enlists them into supporting the idea of doing something, and if nothing is done, they will then hold it against the president.

Ron Fournier and Charles Krauthammer are stunned that Obama uses such passion-less passive-constructions and weak language to describe the outrages of Hamas, and barely speaks at all about ISIS.

But it makes perfect political sense for Obama to do so.

He does not wish to stir the public, because he does not wish to do anything about these things. Ergo, it makes sense for him to use the most soporific language possible in speaking about Hamas and ISIS.

Watching the press conference yesterday, I noticed how dreamy and sleepy the president's words were.

But this I think is no accident. He wants the public to go to sleep. He does not want them to rise at the sound of alarm; he wants them to hit the snooze button and drift back into peaceful dreams.

A foreign policy crisis is only a political crisis for the president if the public is actually aware of the crisis and actively thinking about it.

If the American public is not so aware and actively engaged in a real foreign policy crisis, then it is no political crisis at all to the American president. In this case at least, a tree which falls in the forest with no one to hear it does not make any sound, nor any impression in Gallup's tracking polls.

Obama's words are calculated to "show concern" at a level acceptable to the most members of his voting base, while deliberately avoiding showing any sort of genuine concern which would actually prompt the public to expect, or even demand, action.

This is obvious to any American voter, at least to those few of us who care to pay attention.

Alas, it is also obvious to any foreign menace.

Obama is telling them, nearly explicitly, that he's not going to do anything about them, no matter how outrageous their violations, unless, somehow, their violations become so notorious that the American public finds out about them from someone other than the President, or, indeed, from someone other than the American media, which is all too willing to play stories at the precise level of unconcerned fake "concern" that Obama feels is in his best tactical political interests.

This principle is at work with everything else TFG has screwed up during his Reign of Error. Substitute "foreign policy" for "the economy" and you won't find much difference.

If TFG can convince most of America that "it's all okay," and to "keep calm," then anyone who is upset about it- anyone who *gets* emotional about the goings-on in Gaza or Iraq is automatically not of the majority "emotional tribe," and therefore can be safely ignored.

That is- he's not only signaling that he intends to do nothing about it; he's also signalling that only a crazy-pants would *want* to do something about it.

He sees a subsets of his own citizens - republicans, Tea Party, the 1% - as the greatest threat....to his presidency, so he is most often mocking and denouncing them.

He has no will to stop them; they aren't the ones standing between himself and his desired fundamental change of America.

107 Yet again those who claim to be on the side of reason and who
complain about how those awful liberals don't think but only emote are
complaining that the President isn't out there boohooing over something.



The point, for those who missed it, is to use reason - not emotion - to reach a conclusion and adopt a position. The knock on liberals is that they fail to do this.

Having reached a conclusion, evincing some emotion in expressing it is entirely appropriate in cases such as this. It's not as if he's talking about increasing the chocolate ration from 30 grams per week to 20 grams per week.

Anywho, everybody responds differently to that situation. I tend to get pissed off and double down. But he's been mostly apathetic and disinterested in the job of president since he took office. He's much more interested in the title of president.

Initially acclaimed to be a great orator with a rich baritone voice that proved a shrill lie, his TOTUS trained him in the hypnotic skills of drone.

183 Time for a brief movie review.

"Day of the Siege: September Eleven 1683" (Netflix streaming)

A story about the Turkish siege of Vienna. Main character: Franciscan monk Marco (F. Murray Abraham), minor character, Sobieski, King of Poland. My read: the Turkish characters are treated with a bit of sympathy and PC, but over-all the movie is a subtle Christian call-to-arms. The battles scenes are CGI-heavy, but OK. Spoiler alert (heh): The Emperor is weak and cowardly, and the Christians win. Overall, a good movie, but not as good as Populaire. Finis.

189 Obama has finally accomplished something: he's achieved what's he desires in the foreign policy realm.

He's hightailed it out of Iraq and Afghanistan quickly so he wouldn't have to address these problems. He can now passive-agressively pick the winners and losers in his world: Hamas and ISIS on one hand, Israelis and minority Iraqis on the other.

In the meantime, he throws parties for African dictators when he's not talking to interesting Italians at dinner parties.

He's a fucking wreck of a president and a human being as well. It's what happens when you don't have a father figure in your life.

200 Despite the asinine and banal demographics of the erstwhile chattering classes, the brutal reality is that politics is not a sewing circle or a coffee klatch. Nor is it a grad school-level debate society. It has grave consequences. It matters for whom you vote and for whom you don't vote. And an Idiocracy populace inevitably leads to an Idiocracy government, along with a nation's decline.

214 The thing for me is that I believe that at some level the US ought to be involved in foreign affairs (of state), and that the use of force should be a tool that can be wielded by the US.


But then I look at the feckless, spineless, treasonous, corrupt, incompetent, opportunist political scum that the national "we" have elected as our chosen representatives, and I would not trust them to do a proper job of being a dog-catcher, much less be allowed to commit our men and women to combat in any capacity and in any location.

Declare victory, even though Obama doesn't have a clue what that is, bring everyone and everything home, and wait until it comes here, because it will come even though we protest against it. On US soil, you can probably count on only half the population being the enemy at crunch time, whereas overseas the enemy is more like 90+% of the population even in times of peace.

Oh, and if you want to speed up the arrival of bad times here, defund the shit out of Israel, leave them hanging in the wind, and demonstrate to the world what a pseudo-ally the US has become. That will really play well in many world capitals that still think we might just be able to get our act together if pressed.

The Gambia
The worst of the dictatorships Barbour supports is the Gambia where dictator for life Yahya Jammeh maintains an iron grip on political life. Jammeh continues to be one of Africa's worst dictators and he has been roundly criticized throughout Africa and Europe. He recently called homosexuals "ungodly vermin" and threatened to behead them in 2008. He claimed he had invented an herbal remedy cure for AIDS in 2007.


The international media group Reporters Without Borders (RSF) has condemned Jammeh for its "absolute intolerance of any form of criticism" in the Gambia, with death threats, surveillance and arbitrary night-time detentions a routine condition for journalists "who do not sing the government's praises." Jammeh even stole an election in 2011 but Barbour's firm continued to work with him. Barbour's firm was paid a $45,000 monthly retainer from the Gambian dictatorship to lobby the U.S. government for U.S. taxpayer money in 2013, according to government documents.

A friend of mine is 6'5" and a huge guy. Not
fat but he's got linebacker shoulders. He also has no idea how to fight
and is the kind of person who would throw a punch with his thumb inside
his fist. That being said, he's always handy to take along when going
out because, as I've told him many a time, when people look at him all
they see is 6'5" linebacker. They don't know that I hit harder than he
ever could.



I bring this up for no reason whatsoever.

Stature only means something if you're willing to take advantage of it. I had a mentor who was 5' even. And I wouldn't dream of messing with him, I'll save the details but he was 5' of badass.

I had a troop I trained who was 6' something, would go try out every year for the Houston Oilers (yes, I'm that old) as a DE. worthless. In fact, I threw him out of my dorm and tossed his campaign hat down the center aisle after I took it from him. (hint: do not mac daddy female trainees and let me catch you, because I will fuck your world)

Size means nothing. Intent and ability.

265 " Most Americans don't really give a fuck about foreign policy. Right or wrong, it's reality. "

-
Whether "most Americans" willingly address foreign policy in public discussion will depend on their ideological affiliation with the nation's leadership.

Also on whether efforts to voice opposition were acknowledged after phone calls and letters to elected officials were made.

And what the "Tea Party" victorious candidate whose platform was SMALLER GOVERNMENT manages to achieve for citizen tax payers from public office against the rub of incumbents and rampant corruption.

Finally, there's the DHS recording everything, even going to the unprecedented extreme to "remove" US Goverment's Attorney's witness testimony from a court record, not satisfied to "redact" -- FABRICATING illegitimate WRONG official court records.

IF YOU LET THEM delete reality and juxtapose virtual reality in place "you will have never been," (Thulsa Doom).

Fundamentally, people refuse to address their own faults, and would rather ignore anything "uncomfortable" which today is too subtle an adjective for US foreign policy.

Most people today don't think, just react. And if something's a bother, to hell with it.

Hence, the pain scale. When US foreign policy tragically impacts the personal lives of Americans, most Americans will care. When US foreign policy causes our nation's competitors to turn against us, Americans will give a fuck about themselves suffering the results of US foreign policy.

Demise of the US petro-dollar; the straw that broke the US camel's back interventionist war; the "no such thing as borders" UN/US policy to force all people to accept status as just another commodity for exploitation...

273 Daily Mail:

Pictured outside the White House waving and grinning with his wife President Obiang of Equatorial Guinea is Africa's longest serving dictator after seizing power from his uncle and mentor (who used to hang regime critics from the capital's street lights) in 1979.

Since then he has won the yearly elections with 99% of the vote. Taking the lead from his uncle, he has since had shot or jailed virtually all political opponents and ruled the country with an iron fist. Despite running one of sub-Saharas biggest oil-producing countries and amassing a personal wealth in excess of an estimated $600million, he's far from generous with his riches.

The average income of his citizens is $2 a day, few live beyond 53 and 20 per cent of children die before they reach five years of age. Last year the country ranked 163 out of 177 on Transparency International. There is no freedom of the press, the country's one television station is government-run and clean water is scarce. In 2011, the United States' Department of Justice made moves to seize more than $70 million in assets from President Obiang's son, Teodorin Nguema Obiang Mangue.
Justice Department lawyers alleged Nguema, on top of his official government salary of $100,000, used his position to amass more than $100 million through corruption and money laundering, including a $30 million dollar mansion in Malibu, California, a $38.5 million Gulfstream jet and one of the world's finest Michael Jackson memorabilia collections including the red and black 'Thriller jacket' and Jackson's crystal-studded 'Bad Tour' glove worth more than $2m. He was also the focus of a corruption investigation in France who seized his 101-room Paris mansion, a collection of cars and other luxury assets. He has repeatedly denied the allegations.

Posted by: Flatbush Joe at August 07, 2014 02:24 PM (ZPrif)

274 I would wager that well over 50% of the American voting public now assumes that Obama "lets certain bad things slide" because he actually wants them to happen.

Thus, when he weakly mumbles about the bad news, he's not just trying to lower expectations that he will address the "crisis": He's actually trying to deceive people into thinking that he and we have the same political goals; and that he's failing to address this particular international "crisis" merely because he is weak and lazy. That's actually what he wants us to think. Because us thinking that is better than the alternative: that we realize he's "letting it happen" because he actively wants it to happen.

Almost all of these issues revolve around two themes:

- Weakening America's global influence; and
- Promoting the Caliphate.

If you re-examine Obama's "passivity" with a new paradigm-assumption that he's anti-America and pro-Islam then it all makes sense. (His calculated inaction makes sense, that is.)

Obama is banking on the aphorism "All that is required for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." He thinks "All that is required for the collapse of American capitalism and the rise of populist Islam is for the America president to do nothing."

I'm in that 50% of voters who doubt his allegiance to our goals and values.

His constantly being late for public appearances is a symptom of something. The question is what.

333 Granted, I'm not one to toss out compliments easily, especially when it comes to Ace's website. However, after just visiting the Daily Caller, I've got to say something nice.

Sure, we all make fun of Pixy and Ace for the backwoods, duct tape and bailing wire pieced-together blog that has the technological prowness of Ford Pinto. But after trying to play a video of Justin Amash through the Daily Caller's maze of ads and fucked up code, I'm happy to be able to luxuriate in the non-locked-up flow of information here.

Well done, Ace and Pixy.

Who's ever closest to Tucker Carlson, lean over and smack him up side his fat head for that website.

Fits the Ace theory. Acknowledgement of the loss of a two star in a war Obama has won and is successfully closing down might impel even some LiVs to say WTF?

336 Couldn't one of these trolls link to their An Hero channel and be done with it?

337 Yeah, the really ugly part of that conspiracy theory (heading into truther level here) is that the person who witnessed that is Diana Feinstein's former aid who was found dead.

I used to say about the Clinton administration that there might not be any truth to the Vince Foster rumors, but there was one hell of a political thriller just waiting to be written based on the concepts.

Sorry, I just finished reading MD's latest column. It's just .... awesome. Nearly, but not quite, as awesome as "Dumb and Dumber". Or Pauly Shore. Oh, man.

I saw a bumper sticker a couple of weeks back that said "Free? Christian? Thank a Pole! Vienna 1683"
I had to look it up.

342 1 I just received an email tease from James O'Keefe that he'll release more on border crisis that will embarrass US Government Monday.

That's a lie. The US government is incapable of embarrassment.

344 I haven't forgiven him for his betrayal of the Green Revolution.
And everything he's done since has only increased the amount I despise him.

Do you remember when Bumbles took office in 2008 and "The Apology Tour", he can be embarrassed by what past admins did

346 214. Hrothgar "Declare victory...."

The point of sending our men/women to re-educate or annihilate populations occupying desirable natural resources.

Bush: War over there so we don't have it over here...

A "victory"? When the Patriot Act and DHS are no longer coercing this post-constitutional America into Oligarchs/Serfs, revisionist "meritocracy" according to PC standards of "more special" deserving.

Given: the only way to end a never ending war is by ending it. Armistice, beware reparations perpetuating the next war episode.

As if the "home by Christmas" interventionist wars that never end don't prove to be all deceit, corruption, destruction of civilization as we knew it.

Secret Peace Plan: Retreat
Nixinger's Secret Peace Plan ended the Vietnam War in time to be the first POTUS to visit Communist China, and then to make Red China the most favored trade nation, in time to begin the absolute demise of America's Middle Class dying in global epidemic ruin just as the US treaties an alliance with Vietnam vs. China.
