Obama's Disastrous Press Conference

The full grim spectacle is here; RedState's Streiff (who asks, "How disastrous was Obama's press conference?") offers his thoughts and a two minute clip which shows Obama's usual petulance when he is proven wrong, yet again.

Twitchy documents the live reaction to the presser, in which the press, for once, did not have Obama's act. In fact, they seemed to have his ass, asking the same question over and over, which annoyed him greatly, because he wouldn't actually answer it in any sensible way.

A man who keeps offering the same empty answers -- "allies have to step up," "a warped ideology on the wrong side of history," "contrary to our values," etc. -- cannot complain this petulantly about being asked the same questions.

The other thing people noticed is that Obama gave his typical bloodless "I'd rather be golfing" sort of listless drone about the dead of Paris and his alleged enemies in ISIS, but then, as usual, became interested and emotionally engaged when he was asked about his real enemies, Republicans and Americans.


Obama also re-stated what had already been put out over the weekend: That there would be no shift in our strategy in Syria. As they say in government, don't fix what's not working.

He also, incredibly, declared that he didn't believe he had shown "any [previous] hesitation to act."

He's a remarkable man, in all the wrong ways. He is the apotheosis of progressivism, the avatar and godling that is the living embodiment of all their cowardices, lies, hypocrisies, self-flatteries, and stupidities.

One self-flattery they're fond of is claiming they have "evidence-based" reasoning, not ideology-based reasoning, and that their minds are supple things that readily incorporate new information and plot new strategies accordingly.

Obama is the ultimate exemplar of this fiction. He claims that he's always interested in "whatever works" and he's constantly engaging in high-level cognition about the world, and yet no matter what the news, no matter how badly his strategies and ideological priors have been shown to fail, he clings to them with the devotion of a child to his woobie.

The 8-strikes-a-day "strategy" to defeat ISIS? Complete failure. So we're sticking to that.

Bringing in 10,000 Syrian refugees, despite having no way to vet them and despite two such refugees participating in the Paris attacks? Complete failure. So we're sticking to that.

And on, and on, and on.

And all he can do is repeat the rote words, "twisted ideology" and "wrong side of history."

This is progressivism's greatest mind showing all its supple neuroelectric brilliance?

This pathetic Chatty Cathy programmed to only say six different things, no matter what the input?

Quoting David French again: Obama should not be the president of the United States. He was born to be the president of Oberlin College's department of diversity studies.

He views the world as nothing but a series of petty faculty squabbles and cannot conceive of murder and slaughter having any more meaning that someone shit-talking him in the faculty lounge.

Behold, the beautiful and delicate rhetorical stylings of our cultural and political elite. They’re the improvisational jazz musicians of American diplomacy, always ready with just the right word to solidify alliances, avoid unnecessary confrontation, and reassure Americans they know exactly what they’re doing in the face of bloody violence. This is what happens when the academic Left runs American foreign policy.

For those who’ve lived under a rock for the past four-plus decades, the American academy has been characterized by two prime impulses: one substantive, the other stylistic. First, there's the substantive claim that the problems of the world can largely -- if not entirely -- be traced back to America’s sins and the sins of our Western allies, most notably Israel. These sins have caused the peoples of the world to accumulate a long list of "legitimate grievances," and the problem of anti-American or anti-Israeli violence is therefore best dealt with by dealing with the underlying grievance.

Thus the fury at George Bush and the steadfast belief that it was American foreign policy and not a particular strain of Islamic theology that fanned the fires of jihad. Thus the fury at Israel when it asserts its right of self-defense, even to the point of blaming the rise of the Islamic State on Israeli/Palestinian relations, when the Islamic State is fighting its wars against Shiites, Kurds, Yazidis, and Americans.

Next, there's the sophomoric, malicious style of campus rhetoric, where stigma is the preferred method of argument. It’s hard to overstate the propensity towards name-calling even of "elite" academics, and the culture of the academy is one where groupthink is enforced and reinforced through vicious rhetoric. Their opponents can’t be merely wrong. Instead they are racist, bigoted, homophobic, or -- despite professed love of the disabled -- "Aspergery."

The arrogance is overwhelming, and the fake tough-guy posture of name-calling elitists is laughable to everyone but themselves.

By the way, there where what- at least three studies by the military stating we should leave a large number of troops in Iraq to complete the job and avoid...exactly what is happening now.

It was his usual rambling, re-statements of the obvious, but it was the long pauses at weird places within a statement. Like in the middle of a thought.

What Im not interested in doing is posing or pursuing some notion of American leadership, or American winning or whatever other slogans they come up with, that has no relationship to what actually is going to work to protect the American people and Americas allies, Mr. Obama said at a news conference in Turkey. I m too busy for that.

72 as we know those republicans are much worse to humanity than those misunderstood yutes chilling with Isis.
I mean Isis was predictable by Republicans warmongering and leaving Iraq and Afghanistan.

Yemen, Syria, and Libya, undermining Egypt, undermining Turkey were righteous decisions.

but because of Bush and Republican ideas we must now take in hundreds of thousands of syrian and other ME refugees.

and than my last comment on end of thread
o i read DC is under threat so of course they probably asre bringing out every asset known to man to protect themselves. and i'm certain the WH is alos.

so my question becomes , why are They so worried if all the open border crossers are just people wanting to be free from poverty and want a better life?
and the new refugees They claim are vetted and the cream of humanity?
so what's the worry?

Many of them survived quite well, or have you never heard of the Ottoman empire? Or the Mamaluks?

And it really doesn't matter if they survive as a functioning government. What matters is that in the process of failing they will try their best to destroy Western civilization.

Exactly, its not about the gospel, its not about Christ, its not about God, its not about salvation, its not about sin, its not about love... its about turning away poor people, greed, homeless people, palestinians, and motherhood.

This is the kind of thing that enraged Jesus Christ when he was on earth. Drove him berserk. The stuff that made him tear up the temple, that prompted him to call people whitewashed tombs and hypocrites. This is the sort of thing that stokes the hottest fires of hell.

The suffering of the policies they advocate for and work tirelessly to implement will have to be much, much worse than now.

And even when that day comes, the truth laid bare before their eyes, they will just say,"That's okay. I'm still right and everything I believe in is true and good. But the conservatives won this time." There will be no acknowledgement that they, themselves, were wrong and stupid. Their strategies and tactics will change but not their fundamental core beliefs.

105 You'd think that the person who lived under Islam during his formative years would have a better understanding of the different facets of the religion and attempt to see that when they fight each other we win. When the crabs are all in the same pot trying to get out, there is never any need to put a lid on top. As one approaches escape, without fail another will pull him back inside.

Permitting the adherents of the different sects of Islam to escape to our country will undoubtedly go down in history as his most damning legacy. Those who do not actively engage their representatives and express their outrage will someday have to look themselves in the mirror when the inevitable happens; whether midair, enjoying a football game, having a leisurely dinner out, or enjoying a band at a nightclub.

I also wrote Catholic Charities of New Orleans, who hosting the "refugees" (with Federal taxpayer funds) during their 90 day settlement period and helping them sign up for DHS (welfare) programs to tell them what I think of them helping ISIS to infiltrate this country while ISIS beheads Christians in the Middle East.

I think it's because I can justify Hiroshima and Nagasaki on the grounds that their bombing ended WWII. Nuking Raqqa won't end this war, not by a long shot.

168 Obama is right in one sense.

EU-NATO members should have at least 100k combat troops at the ready. But they don't. I believe Poland and the Baltic nations have - or are in process of standing up two new brigades - maybe 6k troops total. Polish troops are pretty bad ass - and I expect Lithuanian troops to be of the same caliber.

Germany/Netherlands and Norway are in process of creating a "spearhead" of approx. 3500 fast reaction troops supposedly ready by mid-summer 2016.

That's it. That's the best Europe can do.

192 I have two questions:

1) These governors who say they're not accepting any Syrian "refugees", how are they going to enforce that?

2) Like another commenter remarked in a previous thread, with a sizable percentage of the population that is more concerned with free shit and whatever -ism that's popular, what is the incentive for the rest to fight for them? I understand that ISIS needs to be dealt with, but with the current ROE as it is, plus the general apathy, if not hostility, of the crazy fucks in the five-sided nuthouse towards the troops, and with recruitment struggling, who's going to be willing to fight for a nation that's willing to commit suicide?

Nuts. They would still be there, just in a different shape. Why not just blame the Sykes-Picot Agreement?

We should do nothing. There is no way that a death cult will survive as a caliphate/state/whatever. Rand is right about this, even though I can't stand the rest of the libertarian fantasies.

That is what the Byzantines and Sassanids said...ISIS seems to be following the trajectory of a growing ancient/medieval kingdom, and, yes, there is no reason to think that the model will not work in the modern world. Their crisis will come when they have to make the transition from an expansionistic state based on plunder to a static/less-aggressive state based on taxation and trade. That makes the difference between a flash-in-the-pan kingdom and the beginnings of an empire. So far I haven't seen anything to suggest that they will not make the transition successfully.

Chicago Tribune: Liberal ignore Middle American anxiety at their peril

New Yorker: None of the Democrats has a strategy for ISIS

331 310 It will also be like the Chattanooga, TN shooting and UC Merced stabbing - near total blackout of information. ISIS will have to make it really big, and really obvious, or Obama will find a way to shrug it off as random gun violence...and then push harder to end the 2nd Amendment.

I honestly get more of my news from British outlets these days. The day of the attacks, while Shep Smith was wringing his hands on FNC, Sky News was having a serious discussion about terrorism.

337 With regards to the refugees, I hope there is a realistic way to help Middle Eastern Christians as well as pro-American minorities such as the Kurds.

Requires religious discrimination, which is perfectly legal in the context of immigration, but which the left doesn't like (unless Christians are the ones being discriminated against).

My brother is a policeman in the city there, and I asked him a few days ago if they had figured out if the shooter was connected with ISIS, and he says they are still working on the investigation. He also said that one of the benefits for him of the attack was that he got to hang out with some of the FBI and other national security types, and was pretty impressed with them.

But, their ultimate point isn't just to GET to Western Europe and North America. Their ultimate goal is to breed.

Their ideal outcome is to breed with us Caucasian folks in order to thin the white herd as it is. They want to create a multi-racial world, and in such, be able to allow their ideology to seep into every crevice of the Earth.

So, even if 49 out of 50 states disallowed Syrian refugees, they would still pick out weak white women, procreate, and then spread out all over our once great land.

401 @168 EU-NATO members should have at least 100k combat troops at the ready. But they don't. I believe Poland and the Baltic nations have - or are in process of standing up two new brigades - maybe 6k troops total. Polish troops are pretty bad ass - and I expect Lithuanian troops to be of the same caliber.
--------------------

Quite a few NATO nations have over 100,000 military personnel (even Greece!), including Poland. So I suspect I'm missing some nuance in your comment.

Also, having 100,000 troops simply isn't practical for some of the very small nations. The most dramatic example of this would be Luxemburg, which has a population that's only slightly over 500,000. It could probably afford a larger military (the country has a little over a thousand active duty personnel), but 100,000 would cripple it economically.

How to handle those who believe we should leave ISIS alone...
1. Engage in conversation, and ask if military force is appropriate.
2. When he says "No," ask, "Why not?"
3.
Wait until he says something to the effect of "Because that would just
cause more innocent deaths, which would be awful and we should not cause
more violence."
4. When he's in mid sentence, punch him in the face as hard as you can.
5.
When he gets back up to punch you, point out that it would be a mistake
and contrary to his values to strike you, because that would be awful
and he should not cause more violence.
6. Wait until he agrees, and has pledged not to commit additional violence.
7. Punch him in the face again, harder this time.
8. Repeat steps 5 through 7 until he understands that sometimes it is necessary to punch back."

Bomb people, not rubble. Make it obvious that 1) we are going to win and 2) jihadism hurts not only jihadis but anyone else who happens to be around them and even Islam itself, and the "moderates" will decided that they need to stamp out radicalism among them. "Moderates" can't persuade the radicals to be peaceful on a textual basis, only on a tactical basis ("Jihad is currently a counterproductive tactic") and as long as the Jihadis appear to be winning the moderates, who sympathize with their long term goal, will tolerate them.

476 Shep Smith's rant should have been followed by a censorship buzz with a note, you're fired, running across the screen.

What a line-up - one liberal general after another to support his claim that violence alone in the process of getting rid of terrorism hasn't worked so far.

Let me see here.....from what I can tell they have done everything BUT ruthless violence to put a stop on it. Air strikes when only they can confirm there won't be any collateral damage. Taking out their infrastructure only AFTER telling them to get out of the way or they would get hurt. Stopping money flow through the banks, spying, etc.

Shep, when they start blowing up the mosques and schools and homes that they learned this stuff in, when they start bombing civilian crowds that gather in material support of the terrorists - then, and only then, can you say if 'extreme violence' against them works or not.

Until then, we are giving them a little slap on the wrist.

Of course, the French electorate shortly thereafter dumped the perceptive Sarkozy for the bland socialist nonentity Hollande, on whose incompetent watch the Paris slaughter occurred.

515 @415 Stolen from elsewhere.

How to handle those who believe we should leave ISIS alone...
1. Engage in conversation, and ask if military force is appropriate.
2. When he says "No," ask, "Why not?"
3.

Wait until he says something to the effect of "Because that would just

cause more innocent deaths, which would be awful and we should not cause

more violence."
4. When he's in mid sentence, punch him in the face as hard as you can.
5.

When he gets back up to punch you, point out that it would be a mistake

and contrary to his values to strike you, because that would be awful

and he should not cause more violence.
6. Wait until he agrees, and has pledged not to commit additional violence.
7. Punch him in the face again, harder this time.
8. Repeat steps 5 through 7 until he understands that sometimes it is necessary to punch back."

Quite a few NATO nations have over 100,000 military personnel (even Greece!), including Poland. So I suspect I'm missing some nuance in your comment.

More fun with NATO figures -

According to Wiki, the US spent the most in military expenditures in 2014 as a percentage of GDP at 3.5 percent. The next four countries on the list all spent 2.2 percent of their GDP on military expenditures. They are France (no surprise), Turkey (again, no surprise), UK (no surprise), and Greece(!). Estonia had the 6th highest expenditures as a percentage of GDP, at 2 percent.

Name an issue where Hillary's created distance from Obama. Oh yeah, she'd go further than Obama's executive orders to enable Illegal Immigration.

This isn't something they can simply wish away because it will come up in every single debate. Especially if there are more attacks.

Libya was Hillary's idea.

He's only in Syria because Mosul fell and he looks bad, and because Kobane was going to be overrun and look bad.

He's trying to pull us out of the ME.

He may even be right about that, too.

The problem is he doesn't say that. He still talks tough.

Maybe he doesn't want to reveal this plan to our allies.

He says, "We've contained them from the start....", implying we've held them back from spreading out of Iraq and Syria, hence the name ISIS. Yet, he continues to call them ISIL which suggests they spread their influence all along the eastern Mediterranean region call the Levant. In other words, Mr. president "genius" is giving them far more credit than credits due.

563 This is how I feel about Obama and his family. If I saw a group of ISIS fanatics in the process of publicly beheading him while raping his wife and daughters, and I had the power to stop them...I would not do so. He has made it clear since before his first inauguration that he hates people like me for my race, gender and sexual orientation. Well, I don't guess he should be surprised that I reciprocate the feelings in spades.

What sympathy I have for anyone in the U.S. Government at this point is reserved for those in the military who have the sad misfortune to have this traitorous, bastard son of a whore as their commander in chief. THEY have my sympathy. Obama and the rest of them? I wish them nothing but ill. He is not my president and he never has been.

Posted by: mac at November 17, 2015 03:10 AM (ilMXv)

564 I can't condone the "rape and beheading...do nothing" approach of mac. We need to stop their evil then commit to our version of it against them.

I had an Afghan interpreter near Konduz. He was always proselytizing to me, telling my how perfect Islam is. I told him bluntly many times that I was not allowed, forbidden by the US Military in fact, to discuss my religion with host country nationals and that I would appreciate it if he stopped.

He didn't. One day, I said: "Let me tell you the difference between Islam and Christianity. We will sacrifice our eternal souls to protect our daughters from harm but you won't sacrifice your family honor." That ended the conversation.

Years later, I was discussing the matter with my Chaplain and he said that really only 10% of Muslims are extremists but they are similar to the WWJD Christians. The difference is the when people weigh their actions against how they perceive Christ would act, it is to instill forgiveness or goodness into the believer. The What Would Mohammed Do crowd are similar but different, he said. Would Mohammed behead apostates? Yup. Stone women to death for adultery? Yup. Indiscriminately kill infidels? Yup.

In this conversation, I stumbled upon what I think is an absolute truth. We are, in America, Judeo-Christian but we have a bad case of practicing the faith only on the important holidays.

Probably 90% of us are Easter Baptists and Sunday Catholics. We rely on having a forgiving God who will take our works in total on Judgement Day but we know we will have some explaining to do.

Now combine the whole story I have told here. We will sacrifice our eternal souls for our children but only 90% of us are really devout. They will sacrifice their children but only about 10% are true extremists.

We only need to fear 10% of them. They should fear 90% of us. We are the crusaders. We know will commit great evil to protect our loved ones. We know we are sinners and, if pressed to do so, will wash our sins away with the blood of Muslims and protect our innocent at the same time.

We know these days will come. We should get started so we can get it over with.
