MSNBC Analyzes Obama's "Lets Talk First Strategy" Says Nothing About Libya

Has Obama’s ‘let’s talk’ approach worked with US adversaries? A report card...

I get it - Libya is not on "America's Top Enemy" list - a veritable politically correct "Axis Of Evil" list except conjured this time by rather than the President.

  • Iran
  • Syria
  • North Korea 
  • Venezuela
  • Burma
It is almost like cherry picked the list because they were attempting to skew the grade.

How is it that Syria and Burma made it BUT Libya - where American bombs actually were dropped did not appear in the article?  

There has been recent chatter about the "fraud" in indicting an author for what they failed to mention.  The more accurate analysis is that it is legitimate to build a real world reference model about the issue that the author is discussing and then noting how whatever force that binds them prevents them from constructing a legitimate model.  

Not only did Obama not "Talk To Libya" he "Talked To Americans", telling us that the International Coup in Libya was a "Humanitarian Mission".

I guess we can't mention the drones in Pakistan.

How Can The Sri Lankis Expect The American Left To Support Their Protests Against American Bombings When They Use These RACIST Pictures Of Obama?

Protests Around The World Against The US Military Bombing of Pakistan.

(Note - this picture appears in the Dec 27th edition of "The Final Call")

This picture is just not acceptable.
I mean, these protesters, while understandably outraged over the news that US military fighter plane/drones have bombed Pakistan, killing their people - are they really justified in using this RACIST picture of Obama eating chicken?

They have lost all credibility - at least with me.

President Bush bombed them as well.  All they ever did was to "burn Bush in effigy".   Why the RACIST attack on Obama when he kills people?

I suggest that if the aggrieved people around the world want to protest against American Imperialist Power - just as was detailed in "The Confessions Of An Economic Hit Man" - they need to avoid using RACIST references if they seek to get more American leftists to "occupy" the streets along with them.

Obama: "I Don't Over-Promise. I Let My Pragmatic Obama Bots Do My Marketing To The Progressive Masses For Me"


With a loyal base who is watching the interview attentively, looking for talking points from their "grand poobah" that they can use as they remain on message - it stands to reason that President Obama had no problem dropping his statements from 3 years ago that a failure to turn around the economy are grounds for him to be sent home packing.

All that the sitting President Of The United States needed to do is to blame the opposition for destroying the economy, talk about "Growing Income Inequality" and this would be sufficient enough to have these mass of supporters to agree, without noting that the "Mission Accomplished Cities" that they dominate with their public policy have also shown no sign of a strong recovery.

The conscious memory of all factions of the American electorate is sparsely populated.  Both of the main sides lie to themselves as a necessary means of promoting their party into high places.  Lost in this is the necessary "self respect".  This respect which is necessary to prevent a person from "losing THEMSELVES" as a necessary first step in standing with their team.

Obama is a politician.  The purpose of this blog is to go beyond a focus upon Obama and to retain focus upon the masses of people who respond to him as a force, altering their consciousness in a manner akin to standing too close to a microwave oven.

Obama realizes that those who his campaign sold "Hope and Change" to some years ago and who he saw partying in Grant Park are not inclined to do an inventory of what they ordered and what showed up on their doorsteps.   His job in campaign 2012 is to get the masses unified at the "line of scrimmage" and in fighting shape.   As such they will be compelled to remain silent about the "parcel at their door" that is less heavy than they expected.  To focus upon these grievances from the past campaign might ruin his THEIR chances in the upcoming campaign.

The popular adoption of "Income Inequality" provides the progressives with face-saving means of looking past the fact that their previous local takeover has failed to deliver the promised economic, academic and social justice advances that were promised during the run up to the takeover.

With a firm understanding that the base would rather "fight" than demand "self-accountability" the task of the Obama 2012 campaign is merely to compel the sitting President to have an "out of body experience" and pretend that his only hand played in the present condition was 3 years of fighting on their behalf.  The enemy is the one who stopped him.

Loathed are the Pragmatic Obama Bots to do interpolation of the local "Mission Accomplished Zones" where their ideology and party has won but the people have lost greatly.  It is the "Struggle Motion", the activities that produce unity and purpose that matters more to the Progressive-Fundamentalist than does his ability to manage the human resources toward an effective end.

Obama - Achieving PNAC Ends By Dropping The Right-Wing Militaristic Pose

The best way to inspect the antics of the "Machine Progressives" is to make note of the positions of the "Unattached Progressives" who are more willing to call out the US government AND the Commander In Chief that is advancing the policies that they protested against previously.

Confessions Of A CIA Predator Drone Pilot

Downed CIA Drone In Iran Likely Part Of CIA's Operations

Indeed things have CHANGED.
In the years that I have been watching "Democracy Now" the name of the American "CIA" was accompanied with sufficient indictment of the scheme by the right-wing American government in power at the time to wreak havoc in Haiti, South America or some unfortunate nation in Africa or the Middle East.

Today, while I credit "Democracy Now" for reporting consistently on such matters - there appears to be little appetite among the forces that typically "occupy the streets" in protest of American imperialist intervention to take what Amy Goodwin is likely to report on about this latest find, using it as an indictment against the right-wing scoundrels who have no respect for democracy or sovereign rule.

The new moniker appears to be:
"Dropping The Bellicose Right Wing Imperialist Public Pose Will Still Advancing The Ends Detailed In The Project For A New American Century While Not Triggering Sufficient Anti-War Protests"

Despit The Will Of The "Pragmatic Obamabots".......Obama's Approval Rating Falls Lower Than That Of JImmy Carter - 1 Year Out From The Election

Obama's Job Approval Drops Below Carter's

President Obama's slow ride down Gallup's daily presidential job approval index has finally passed below Jimmy Carter, earning Obama the worst job approval rating of any president at this stage of his term in modern political history.
Since March, Obama's job approval rating has hovered above Carter's, considered among the 20th century's worst presidents, but today Obama's punctured Carter's dismal job approval line. On their comparison chart, Gallup put Obama's job approval rating at 43 percent compared to Carter's 51 percent.

The Endless Coping Skills Of The Entrenched JingOists

"The Investment Of Our Life Savings Into 'Hope And Change' has not brought us the prosperity that we had convinced ourselves it would bring forth as we wrote the check.   So we have found a new way of coping which allows us to avoid going to our investment broker and demand a "Return On Our Investments...................."

This is because WE ARE The INVESTMENT BROKER who 'Self-Convinced Us' that we were making a wise investment choice.

We can't sue ourselves for misappropriation.

As long as we stay unified - no one will file a lawsuit against ourselves in defense of our self-interests.

MSNBC's Chris Matthews Breaks With His Network's Talking Points - Demands Clarity On Obama's Second Term

I give tentative credit to MSNBC's Chris Matthews.
The qualification for my limited recognition of what he did IS NOT because he expressed unconditional criticism of Obama - he should have been doing this all along.   Instead his network is just as guilty of being an extension of the Democratic Party as they accuse Fox News as being hacks for the GOP.

Credit is due to Matthews because, for the first time in Obama's term he has expressed HIS VISION of the country in a manner that is separate and distinct from Obama's vision.  In as much as he is not hearing what Obama is communicating in this area - this "constructive feedback" was necessary to provide to the Obama campaign and administration a front channel warning that he is not merely in the fight on behalf of Obama for the "fight alone".

The real test of this new found consciousness in Chris Matthews will come if he shows that he is able to become the objective journalist that Larry Elder (himself not an objective journalist) challenged him to become. 

We already know that Chris Matthews and the entire MSNBC establishment desire to do what they need to do to ensure a successful reelection for President Obama.  In the midst of their nightly roasts of their Conservative enemies, however we have:

  • Three Years And Counting Of + $1.2 Trillion Budget Shortfalls
  • An International Coup In Libya That They Went Along In Marketing It As A "Humanitarian Mission"
  • A Violation Of THEIR STANDARD Of "Due Process" As The US Military Identified "Terror Suspects" And Blew Them Up With Unmanned Drones
  • School Reform Placed On The Backburner After The Progressive-Fundamentalists Successfully Derailed "No Child Left Behind"
  • The Inability To Link The Present Economic Collapse Of Several "Mission Accomplished Cities" With The Decades Of Growth In Their Ideological Control Over Them - Instead Of Demanding Evidence Of "Growth" From The Local People They Invested In After Being Convinced That They Are Traveling The Right Path - The Occupiers Instead Choose To Nationalize Their Indictment
Chris Matthews indicted "White voters" as having a tinge of RACISM for allowing their support for Obama to fall below 40%.   This same man is not intellectually curious enough to investigate why Black voter support remains at 91% in a recent poll despite the pain suffered.

The bottom line of all of this is - when your own vision is made subordinate to the "Political Team" that you are a part of then you also must accept that when people SEE who you are and learn that you will work for the team more than pursuing your own interests - it is YOU who have compromised yourself and you deserve to be perpetually shorted.

As Obama Expands US Military Presence In Australia And Africa The "Pragmatic Obamabots" Drop Their "Radical Anti-War Pose" For Complicity In Imperialism In Deference To Obama

The Obama Presidential Term Of 2009-2013 will one day be viewed by historians as the time period where Progressives were seen yielding many of what most thought were their "core values".

We must understand the mechanics of what is going on.
On my sister blog "Within The Black Community" I document how Black, otherwise Progressive individuals are made to remain strangely silent as the US government does things domestically and the "American Military War Machine" does other things internationally that would have otherwise had them taking to the streets.   With the US military having bombed an African nation while participating in a coup against a sovereign nation it is unthinkable that any other US President could have gotten away with such an action except for a scant amount of protests from certain diehards.

Please note - as part of my longitudinal study on "What makes the Black Progressive Political Discourse Tick" I attended an "Anti-Libya War" presentation.  At the end of this program in which they noted that Ronald Reagan had lead the original desecration of Libya by dropping a bomb in Gaddahfi's living room, killing one of his daughters - they noted that Obama had blown the entire house up, killing his son and other relatives.

Alas, however, at the end of the program - there was consensus among the crowd of speakers that they are STILL going to vote for Obama in 2012 over any Republican alternative.

Though Obama is acting like a Republican Imperialist - they agreed that he was better than having a "Complete Ideological Adversary" in office.

The root of their compromised state then is that they, unlike Martin Luther King Jr who they praise for his integrity - value "DOMESTIC SOCIAL JUSTICE" over being true to their calling on the international scene.

Thus - GREATER than their core interests in retaining their integrity to "Progressivism" is their defense against the Conservative adversary.   Specifically - Black people can be compelled prioritize just about anything IF the situation is framed as a "Racial Threat".  Regardless of the results had by the "favorable machine in power" (see Detroit) the Embedded Confidence Man Messaging Machine will convince the masses that things would be even worse if the enemy was in power.  Not only would their Permanent Interests be shattered - they would also experience the grief of seeing the ideological enemy in power.

The Same Model, Expanded To All Progressives Nationally

Journalist George S Schuyler noted that there is no "Black Progressive Movement" in the 1940s Harlem, there is ONLY a "Progressive Movement".  That Blacks had no specific and custom outcomes that they sought that could be distinguished from their White counterparts.

I agree with Schuyler.

Logic holds then that the same behavior that is noted among "Black Progressive-Fundamentalists" can also be noted among Progressives of any race in America when it comes to Obama and his military expansion.

Even though "Tax The Rich" and "Scale Down The US Military, Bringing Our Imperialist Troops Home" were two key platforms for progressives in their deficit reduction plan - with Obama as the Commander In Chief it is far easier for them to stand behind him and help him fight for "Tax Increases On The 1%" than they  are able to stand strongly opposed to Obama for his latest military expansion efforts both in Australia and Eastern Africa.  (We should also include the expansion of the CIA in East Africa as the unarmed Drones over Ethiopia belong to the CIA.  The key difference between the CIA drones and the US Military Drones is that the mod kit to add weapons have not been applied - as of yet).

While many progressive find mental solace in the notion that there is a "hidden hand" force that forces the hand of Obama, compelling him to do things that are "not in his progressive nature" - the truth is that these forces, if they exist - should be watching how much easier it is for them to carry out imperialist operations when there is a "Favorable Commander In Chief" that the Anti-War Left is not going to run a propaganda campaign against.

Special Operations Commander: Bin Laden Take Down Narrative Is A Lie By The Obama Administration

Fear not folks - this story "has no legs".
Whereas Pat Tillman's narrative that was crafted by the US Military was made into fodder by the left wing media - something beyond Osama Bin Laden being less than an "honorable man" will compel these same muckrakers to not feast upon this story.

The key point that I am making is that the US GOVERNMENT/MILITARY largely continues to do the same thing - regardless of who is in office.

It is more interesting to look at the beholden lemmings that go along when "their team" is in power.  The great show is to see how much that was cast as their "moral compass" gets distorted by the magnetic waves that attract them toward the bright light in the dark of the night that they fly around.

Spec-Ops Command: SEAL raid book 'a lie'

WASHINGTON — The U.S. Special Operations Command is calling a former Navy SEAL's alternate version of the raid that killed Osama bin Laden a bogus work of fiction.

"It's just not true," U.S. Special Operations Command spokesman Col. Tim Nye said. "It's not how it happened."
Laden with conspiracy theories and attacks on the Obama White House, Chuck Pfarrer's book, "SEAL Target Geronimo" claims an alternative version of the raid in which the SEAL team shot bin Laden within 90 seconds of arriving at the Pakistan compound where the al-Qaida mastermind was holed up.
Pfarrer claims the White House issued a fictional and damaging account of the raid that made the SEALs looks inept. He says President Barack Obama's speedy acknowledgement of the raid was a craven political move that rendered much of the intelligence gathered on the raid useless.
Pfarrer's account broke into Amazon's top 20 book sales list last week, and Pfarrer has appeared on Fox News, CNN and in other venues to promote it.
"I have truth on my side," Pfarrer said in an interview with The Associated Press. "I spoke to the guys on the ground and in the secondary bird," he said, referring to the aircraft carrying a second SEAL team as a backup rescue squad.
"This is a fabrication," Nye countered, issuing an on-the-record denial on behalf of Navy SEAL Adm. Bill McRaven, who took command of all special operations in midyear.
In his previous role, McRaven oversaw the raid in May as head of the military's elite counterterrorism unit, the Joint Special Operations Command. Nye said McRaven was concerned the book would lead Americans to doubt the administration's version of events.

If Progressive Heroine Ella Baker Were Alive Today Would She Believe That Italy's Imperialist Interests In Africa Has Substantively Changed Since Her Opposition To Their Incursion In Africa During Her Day?

Much credit is due to the late Black Progressive historian Manning Marable in reference to his book "Malcolm X - A Life Of Reinvention".

As I make my way through the audio book there is a large collection of gems that I am extracting which provide important details of the relationships and debates during the late 50's - early 60's between various individuals and groups that were involved with (or in some cases tried to stay out of) "The Civil Rights Movement".

The name Ella Baker came up in the book "Malcolm X" because Marable sought to give some context in the development of the "Southern Christian Leadership Conference" as well as other progressive civil rights organizations that Ms Baker was involved in.  While Baker and Malcolm X were not necessarily direct collaborators the both were important players in the constellation of voices during this period.

From Wikipedia

While I was personally interested to hear that the great journalist George S Schuyler was a close friend with Ella Baker - during his time as a left wing radical (before becoming a staunch conservative and critical of several elements and antics of "The Civil Rights Movement") it was more interesting to learn about Ella Bakers stance against the invasion of Ethiopia by the colonial power Italy.

To be clear - I did not read about Ella Baker's activism against Italian/European imperialism within Africa from the "Malcolm X" book.   I learned about it from my additional research on Ella Baker - the name that rolls off of the lips of so many Black activist progressives today.

("What Would Ella Baker Do About The NATO Coup In Libya Today?)

I have no intention of hijacking anything about Ella Baker's legacy, presupposing that I could predict what she would do if she were alive today.  In fact I hate it when people try to do this.

Instead it is far more interesting to make reference to a figure that various Black Progressive-Fundamentalists from Van Jones to certain spoken word artists use and then contrast her views about Imperialism In Africa against the views held today by people who do try to walk in her shoes.

It was the Wikipedia entry about Ella Baker that I learned:

The purpose of this blog is less "About Obama" and instead is about how staunch Progressives have CHANGED in accommodation of Obama.  This is not a "political gotcha" blog intent on making shallow indictments, then assuming that I have 'won' by proving someone's hypocrisy.

My intent is on modeling and then analyzing "Progressivism" and how political pragamatism and, in some cases ideological bigotry shapes it as it seeks to deal with its demons. (Demons meaning the choice to remain dogmatically "progressive" versus politically expedient loyal Democrats - as the force cast by the Republican enemy justify "right-wing" actions done in the name of protection).

Did The Agenda Of Italy And Europe Change Over Africa In 75 Years Since The Second Italo-Abyssinian War?

Of course Ethiopia is a very different nation than in Libya in a number of ways:

  • Prevailing Religion
  • Cultural Pasts
  • Proximity To Europe
  • Petroleum and Commercial Holdings

The common tie in my argument is the European nation of Italy.  

The Italians invaded Ethiopia while "The League Of Nations" was impotent in forcing Italy to obey "international law".  Upon its successful conquest - other imperialist powers applauded Italy for its "accomplishment" and efficiency.  This appears to be the JUSTIFICATION in the minds of the back slappers.

The war appears to have been started when an African leader, Emperor Haile Selassie dared to express disapproval for some borderlines drawn by European colonialists and then went "doubled daring" as he flexed his military muscles in affirming his nation's right to the land mass in dispute.

The template is clear:

  • An African nation stands up for its own independence and self determination
  • External powers who's interests are threatened seek to compel the African nation to yield
  • A military incursion is initiated to enforce the will of the external/ colonial force

The information that I have seen does not sufficiently mention the prevailing sentiments of the citizens of Ethiopia with regards to this external intervention but it seems reasonable that they would be against these foreign forces.

Italy Bombs Libya Under The Guise Of NATO - Along With The United States - Lead By Commander In Chief Obama

The White House Confirms That American Drones Will Provide Surveillance Over Ethiopia

If Ella Baker was on the staff of MSNBC's "The" would she see the track record of bombing attacks by the United States and NATO using  "US Drones" in Pakistan, Yemen, Libya and Somalia 
and be wary that the assurances from Commander In Chief Obama that these drones will be unarmed, might not be followed in the future?   These drones likely have the mounting brackets to hold munitions already.

Would Ella Baker wake up at 2am in order to make it to the White House just prior to the 3am phone call that the Commander In Chief receives from the US Military - asking permission to execute another bombing campaign in the name of a "Humanitarian Mission"?

The Age Of "More Agreeable" American Rendition Has Arrived - Thanks To A "Change We Can Believe In" In The Role Of Commander In Chief

17,000 Bombing Sorties By NATO Upon The Sovereign African Nation Of Libya

After the dust cleared from the 17,001st bombing mission disabled the convoy that toppled former leader Gaddahfi was riding in, the rebels saw him running toward a storm drain, dragged him out and then shot him.

Gaddahfi was heard pleading to be Water Boarded rather than the new mode of rendition adopted by the United States.

Until their conservative Republican enemies bow down and acknowledge Obama's EQUAL ability to leverage American Military Might against nation's of color around the world - these JingOists will continue their battle for respect against their enemy using other nations as the flora and fauna in their quest.

Obama Administration's "Death Panel" Against American Citizens Turned Terrorist Falls Through The Cracks Of The Left-Wing Extra-Constitutional Actions Watch

Obama Administration debated the issue of killing an American citizen, Anwar al-Awlaki, and then penned a memo justifying their actions.

With the operation successfully carried out, after the dust has settled at the location where the bomb dropped - it appears that there is little interest for this issue among the left-wing sources that chomped at the bit over Bush era "Torture Memos".


Credit the news gathering element of the NY Times and Washington Post for enumerating the facts about the targeting and killing of an American citizen who was working for Al Queda.  
The best way to understand the entire situation with these two news operations is that this news, while posted, has not been grasped by the opinion arms of their papers.

They have no interest in using these points to bludgeon the Obama Administration, thus giving his right-wing adversaries some ammo.   Instead the larger progressive opinion swam has been more inclined to put aside their moral indignation and instead point out how THE RIGHT, despite Obama doing all that they favor - still  does not accept his legitimacy.

In the wake of this disingenuous argument they can't bring themselves to note how much THEY have abandoned their own "Permanent Interests" against American Militarianism and abuses by the American CIA in doing "Extra-Judicial Killings" for no other reason than OBAMA is the Commander In Chief that approved the operation.

I told you that the guest in the video on the James Zogby Show perfectly captured the consciousness of the "Pragmantic Obama Bot/ JingOists".   They can't bring themselves to see that the best way that "the right wing" to achieve their militarist agenda is to silence the left by placing a favorable progressive President into power that they don't wish to topple.

They are a MOLESTATION of the Rev Dr Martin Luther King Jr disposition who prioritized his demand for "International Justice" over "Domestic Social Justice Programs".

●The drone program has killed more than 2,000 militants and civilians since 2001, a staggering figure for an agency that has a long history of supporting proxy forces in bloody conflicts but rarely pulled the trigger on its own.
●The CIA’s Counterterrorism Center, which had 300 employees on the day of the attacks, now exceeds al-Qaeda’s core membership around the globe. With about 2,000 on its staff, the CTC accounts for 10 percent of the agency’s workforce, has designated officers in almost every significant overseas post and controls the CIA’s expanding fleet of drones.

The Lost Solyandra Half A Billion - Clouded Vision Due To Ideological Bigotry

President Obama came out in strong defense of the billions in loan guarantees made by his administration to solar panel manufacturer Solyndra because it was important for the nation to retain competitiveness against the Chinese.  Since their government is backing businesses in this market segment it was important that the USA do the same.

Despite the fact that there were ample warnings of the shaky finances for the firm and their miscalculation that higher priced high capacity cells would trump the lower cost models - the operatives within the Obama Administration pushed forward with the loan.  As news of politically connected lobbyists are discovered we see how things have change "After Obama".

There are news reports upon the administration - just as all others.   
Then there is a drum beat of opposition forces that are intent upon taking these news reports and using them to take out the administration.  Their antics are then REPORTED UPON as news and, over time, the snowball effect of negative criticism takes place against a President.

The left are the traditional muckrakers when it comes to exposing crony capitalism run by well connected insiders.   In this case the cross between "Green Energy" and "Crony Capitalism" has them remaining silence because they like this President and they like "Green Energy".   They have chosen to not use this incident as proof that one's ideology can blind their fiduciary responsibilities in guarding the Treasury.

Due Process For "American Terrorists" In The Age Of Obama - "It Sux Being You"

To be clear - The ACLU should be credited for its consistency on the matter.  They have been calling out their views of illegal procedures as it relates to how "terror suspects" are handled by the US government.  Those of which are American citizens in particular.

The point that we must understand is that they big difference between then and now is with the news media and the array of left-wing interest groups.  Previously they sought to take down an unfavorable president.  Thus they took the news feed from the ACLU and used it for their indictments and protests.

Today their goal is to protect a favorable president so, even though the ACLU is putting out news feeds the forces of amplification have disconnected the RCA cable from their amplifier.

Samir Khan was an American citizen who departed the United States in order to work as a media operative for Al Queda.

Khan was killed by a American CIA drone strike in Yemen as another American citizen - Senior Al Qaeda leader Anwar al-Awlaki.  This is not a debate on the JUSTIFICATION of this air strike in the larger "War On Terror".

This post is a documentation of the differences in the "care and handling" in the calls for "Due Process" from the usual suspects.

Relatives of Samir Khan, the former Long Island man killed last week in a U.S. drone strike in Yemen, broke their silence this week to question the government's tactics in pursuing American citizens who were deemed terrorists.
Khan, a naturalized U.S. citizen born in Saudi Arabia, was killed alongside American-born Muslim cleric Anwar al-Awlaki, leader of al-Qaida in the Arabian Peninsula.
Khan, 25, published Inspire, an online magazine encouraging terror acts, but relatives who live in Charlotte, N.C., asked why the killings took place without trials.
A statement from Zafar and Sarah Khan said, "Our late son Samir Khan never broke any law and was never implicated of any crime. . . . Why couldn't there have been a capture and trial? Where is the justice?"
The statement went on to cite the U.S. Constitution's Fifth Amendment due-process clause, which says no person should be deprived of life without due process, "yet our government assassinated two of its citizens."
Jibril Hough, a family spokesman affiliated with the Islamic Center of Charlotte, said Khan's relatives, who are citizens, felt it necessary to speak out as Americans.
"They know this is a broader discussion that America needs to take up," he said.
But David Schanzer, director of the Triangle Center on Terrorism and Homeland Security at Duke University, in Durham, N.C., said al-Awlaki and Khan had turned themselves into enemies of the state.
"If you join an armed foreign force that is in conflict with the U.S., you have become a legitimate target," Schanzer said.
President Barack Obama said the strike that killed al-Awlaki and Khan was "a major blow to al-Qaida's most active operational affiliate" and gave no signs of stepping back such operations. "We will be determined, we will be deliberate, we will be relentless, we will be resolute in our commitment to destroy terrorist networks that aim to kill Americans."
Hough said the American Civil Liberties Union has been in touch with the Khans.
ACLU Deputy Legal Director Jameel Jaffer criticized the killings: "The government's authority to use lethal force against its own citizens should be limited to circumstances in which the threat to life is concrete, specific and imminent."

I have to credit President Obama for learning the hand that he was dealt and adeptly using it.   On the one hand he has the advantage of hindsight to understand the mistakes made by the Bush Administration on the subject of handling of terror suspects and the progressive flash back it triggered.   Secondly Obama is keenly aware that his left-wing base is loathed to stand against him and he is able to cross a line that is further beyond where Bush could have gone with reference to the Left.

By killing terror suspects Obama has destroyed the being that the ACLU and others can claim 'habeas corpus" over.  The suspect's body has been blown to bits and thus there is no body that they can demand due process for any longer.   It effectively "cuts to the chase" and closes the debate.   Where as Bush had - a prison and several human beings alive who can give testimony to the ACLU lawyers - under Obama the ACLU only has body fragments and their words are inadmissible in court.

In an ironic turn of events the JingOists use Obama's boldness to note that his right wing critics don't give him CREDIT for being strong.   In their own dishonesty they move from the debate over justifications and/or due process and instead render an indictment against their enemies charging them with "moving the goal posts" in their willingness to accept Obama.

In their own bigoted blindness they can't see that now BOTH LEFT AND RIGHT ARE IN AGREEMENT OVER KILLING TERRORISTS.   Ironically Obama brought the left MORE RIGHTWARD!!!!!!

This is what happens when you have "Permanent Friends" rather than "Permanent Interests".  You begin to "take one for the team" but that ONE becomes a total compromise as the transactions continue to flow.

We are not at the point of attempting to figure out "What Can Obama DO Before The Left Will Rise Up Against Him?"

The "Most Threatened American President In History" Has More Security Protection And Is More Secure Than Most Of The People Who Claim That RACISM Is The Reason For The Threats

Even though the head of the Secret Service - the man who assigns the favorite Secret Service Agents that the Obama family has taken a liking to has denied that President Obama has any greater level of threat than other presidents during his Congressional testimony these claims are still reported by Racism Chasers as they talk among themselves.

A key part of their justification to defend Obama at all costs and regardless of their own present standing economically, academically and security-wise is that "Obama is under attack from his enemies and they are driven by RACISM(!!)".    This allows these masses to of JingOists to stack rank the importance of "self-preservation" above their un-admitted disappointment of having a large gap between the expectations that were hyped up and the reality that transpired after the fact.

They prefer to invest their mental and emotional resources into Obama's protection when the Secret Service is far more competent and capable of doing so.

Obama Says "Americans Are Not Better Off Today Than 4 Years Ago" Because He Knows His Supporters Who Are Suffering Aren't Coming After Him

President Obama: America 'Not Better Off' Today than Four Years Ago

You can read the details for yourself at the above link.

One thing is for sure - When you hear a politician being brutally honest about the eroded conditions on his watch rather than heard spinning and cherry picking points that are favorable to him, you should understand that this is a politician that is very confident that his base of supporters are not going to come after him with their pitchforks.    Instead they are hearing words of empathy for their plight.

They merely need to "support him harder" - poking their common enemy with the pitchfork.

I've Got His Back

Sadly a significant number of people who are moved by the "coolness" of this graphic are also prone to:

  • Put aside any TRANSPARENT enumeration of the value of the "Hope & Change" that sufficiently motivated them to make an investment of their ballots and their "development hopes"
  • And have the majority of their future investments based upon the consequences of allowing his enemies to return to power
  • With the pattern established of yielding the enforcement of their "return on investments" - this sets up the "national struggle" which has them looking past their "mission accomplished" local institutions where they are all alone by themselves and instead focus upon the battle against their enemy over the resource pool that the national government can build up via debt and taxation
  • They will never define themselves with the competence of leveraging their local institutions to build up the desired standard of living on the backs of their people who have matriculated through the institutions.

Obama 2012: "Yes We Could Have Done A Whole Lost Worse"

  1. Some people will see an editorial cartoon that comes painfully close to the talking points being cast by various JingOists.  From this they will do some soul searching and realize that it is time for CHANGE as they work to stand firm on the defense of their permanent interests
  2. Others will see this cartoon and allege that the first Black president is drawn to look like a circus clown.  As they agree that this is RACIST - they'll compel a large portion of "Pragmatic Obama Bots" who should take heed at #1 to retain their defensive posture, supporting Obama because he is under "racist attack"

One Political Cartoon That Will Never Be Updated

Obama must be the best "Fiscal Conservative" in history.

As A JingOist If They Believe That Obama's Jobs Program Is Wrong Because It Is "Off The Books Spending" Like The Iraq/Afghanistan War

Consistency in one's stances across various domains that challenge it is proof of integrity. For far too many people this is an impossible measure for them to live up to. Since most of their stances are rendered in INDICTMENTS - they count on the fact that their fellow travelers will never point out their inconsitency. For years we have heard the Progressive-Fundamentalist Left argue that the "Supplimental Spending Authorizations" used to fund the war operations in Iraq and Afghanistan through the Bush Administration were wrong because this spended was non-budgeted. Even though this argument makes no sense since CONGRESS must approve every penny spent by the executive branch - it is merely a nitpicking argument. The money still ends up in the American debt tally. Fast forward to today. In addition to a $768 billion stimulus package from a few years ago, their darling, President Obama now proposes a $447 billion "Jobs Program". I know this because I have seen the new Democratic National Committee commercials that are pressing Americans to demand support for this bill running on television no less than 4 times since last night. I don't know a lot of things but one thing I do know is that we are NOT going to hear these same critics of "off budget spending" stand against this latest spending proposal by Obama. They are merely hoping that no one notices that it too did not go through the standard budgeting process. Besides - Media Matters or Huffington Post won't be making the indictment and thus the JingOists won't have it on their dashboard of talking points.
