More “Achievements” For Obama To Include In His SOTU? *Open Thread*

by

With Obama’s final (YeHAW) SOTU Address coming up next Tuesday, I am sure he and his writers are going through ALL the major “achievements” Obama’s policies have brought this year.

Take for instance Iran. Right now, Iran and our ally (?), Saudi Arabia, are now embroiled. Needless to say, the Obama White House has been a bit silent over the current bombing going on by both sides. Iran, as you may know, took offense at Saudi Arabia beheading one of their clerics, so they bombed the Saudi Arabian Embassy in Tehran. Well, Saudi Arabia wasn’t going to take THAT lying down, so not only did they cut ties of a diplomatic variety with Iran, THEY* just bombed the Iranian Embassy in Yemen. Take THAT, Iran! (* That should read they ALLEGEDLY bombed the Iranian Embassy. A report tonigh on “Special Report” noted that there did not seem to be any visual damage to the embassy. Oh, and guess wit whom most of the countries in the region are aligning themselves? It ain’t Iran, I can tell you.)

And the White House? Well, that response is basically crickets. And you know why. Because of the ridiculous, idiotic, disastrous, giveaway to Iran by the Obama White House and the Kerry State Department.

Which makes THIS little video out of Iran even more indicative of how very problematic this whole deal with Iran is:

Uh, yeah. What could POSSIBLY go wrong with all of those missiles on which they have their hands, huh? Yep – that’s going into the SOTU – not.

And how about all of those Syrian refugees Obama and Democrats have been trying to guilt-trip us into taking after Obama’s disastrous policies with Syria? Perhaps Obama will borrow from his buddy, Angela Merkel, who made an impassioned speech on New Year’s about the need for compassion for these Syrian refugees and to embrace them. From the Daily Mail:

[…] The influx of more than a million refugees should be welcomed as an ‘opportunity’, Angela Merkel told Germans last night.

The country’s leader used her New Year address to urge citizens not to have ‘coldness in their hearts’ but to embrace the 1.1million newcomers.

Mrs Merkel has been blamed for fuelling the European migrant crisis by promising to welcome those who make it to Germany.

She was initially praised by Germans for her decision to allow many of those escaping war and poverty to stay. But with the numbers of migrants from the Middle East and Africa reaching more than a million, doubts have grown and her popularity has suffered. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

I can see Obama parroting the “opportunity” phrasing of Merkel about these refugees who have poured into Germany. No doubt, his ego and his cultish followers would never consider that his popularity could be damaged by such a plea based on emotionalism, or by his wanting to throw open wide the doors to these people who cannot possibly be vetted no matter what the Administration says.

And I am not sure it would matter if they WERE vetted. Why? Well, check out this little testimony following the events of New Year’s Eve in Cologne, Germany (it has English subtitles):

Yeah. That is what is going on in Germany now with the influx of Syrian (and alleged Syrian) refugees as the EU has loosened its borders. Hell, even with THIS, Merkel thinks the borders should stay open. No, seriously – she does.

And to these attacks, check out what Dana Loesch and Megyn Kelly have to say about the whole event, including the unbelievably assholic comments by the Mayor of Cologne. You won’t believe what SHE had to say. To the video:

Yes, Merkel and Obama are two peas in a pod. I can just see Obama praising Merkel and using her open door policy for these refugees as an arm-twister for us in his SOTU, can’t you?

Oh, WAIT! I almost forgot with all that is going on about the two Gitmo detainees the President has had released this week. I have no doubt THIS will make it into his SOTU, how he is fulfilling his campaign promise no matter HOW dangerous these detainees are to our national security. From Fox News:

The Pentagon on Wednesday announced that two Guantanamo Bay inmates with Al Qaeda ties are being sent to Ghana, the first in a wave of 17 detainees expected to be transferred from the prison camp.

Mahmud Umar Muhammad Bin Atef and Khalid Muhammad Salih Al-Dhuby will be transferred from Guantanamo to the custody of the government of Ghana.

Bin Atef is an admitted member of the Taliban and fought for Usama bin Laden, while Al-Dhuby trained with Al Qaeda in Afghanistan.

The two inmates are the first of a group of 17 detainees expected to be transferred out of Guantanamo Bay that includes “multiple bad guys” and “Al Qaeda followers,” a source who has reviewed the list told Fox News.

With the announcement of the transfer, 105 detainees remain there.

Both detainees spent close to 14 years at Guantanamo

The Pentagon had earlier determined that bin Atef was a high risk to the U.S. and to American interests, while Al-Dhuby posed a medium risk. […] (Click here to read the rest.)

Oh, awesome. And while I am speaking of terrorists, Megyn Kelly mentioned the “University of Jihad” in Syria on her program last night. Oh, yes – they have themselves a school to teach the finer points of waging jihad (h/t Megyn Kelly show):

Oh my heavens. This is just astonishing. Just astonishing. Wow. Well, I am sure THAT is not making Obama’s SOTU address, nor his blowing off dealing with Assad, something the Administration claims will come to a head in – wait for it – 2017. That would be MARCH of 2017, to be specific.

So, yeah – I have no doubt Obama will leave out what is going on in Syria, what is going on with Syrian refugees, and how the Middle East is imploding under his watch. One thing I am sure he will have IN his speech, though, is attacking Republicans, something he has made a regular staple of all of his talks, including his Gun Control Show the other day.

There are so many other things going on this week that I have no doubt will not make the final Obama SOTU, but which should be. This is an Open Thread, so feel free to add some of your own!

    As you said, “Merkel and Obama” are two peas in a pod. Two idiots that cannot understand that their “job” as leaders of their country is to protect the “citizens” of the country. First and foremost. And yet they don’t’ seem to understand that at all.

    All the delicate little snowflakes on campus who feel “violated” if someone looks at them the wrong way, may find a new meaning for violated with some of the Muslim refugees they welcome.

    Understand I am not now and never would make fun of woman who have been raped. It is a vile and disgusting crime that has nothing to do with sex and everything to do with power over women. The sooner these idiot liberals understand that, the better for women all over the world.

    And “Mutti” Merkel had better start protecting her own. As for that repulsive Mayor of Cologne who is willing to sacrifice the women of her town for PC, she is vile and if they re-elect her they are saying that Germans don’t mind having their women molested. Not even the 7 year olds.

    Good for Megyn for getting this out – the Left Stream Media is too concerned with PC and Islamaphobia concerns to care if women are being abused around the world. They, in fact, want to bring men with a culture of abuse to our country. It boggles the mind.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      It really is astonishing how little the media is following this. If it wasn’t for that young man in Germany who took it upon himself to report what was happening, I doubt many of us would know abt it. And THAT speaks volumes.

      You ain’t only kidding abt that Mayor. Can you BELIEVE she is blaming the WOMEN for the abhorrent, violent behavior of these men?? WTH?? And yes, if Cologne re-elects her, they have made their opinion on women very clear indeed.

      I just cannot believe Merkel is not stopping refugees in her country, and that she is still championing the open border policy of the EU. That is beyond PC-ness run amok – considering the impact on her people, it is downright criminal. Or it should be.

    • mcnorman Says:

      Did you see what one of the deviants said about Ms. Merkel?

      Leaked police report claims senior police officers feared fatalities and that one of those involved in attacks told officers: “I am Syrian. You have to treat me kindly. Mrs Merkel invited me”

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Oh. My. GOSH. I am literally SMH at that. THAT is what she has wrought on her country. Right there, all summed up by that quote.

        Astonishing.

        • mcnorman Says:

          Horror cannot describe what she has done. The border folks know and understand this only TOO well. It is a nightmare.
          Many years ago, a friend had her father house sit for her one weekend. He was murdered during a robbery. They caught the two illegal alien deviants. They were returned to Mexico without ever seeing inside of a prison. No time, just returned after taking a life. That was in 1982. Now, it’s even easier.

          • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

            OHMYGOSH, mcnorman! That is terrible!!! Wow, just WOW – I am just stunned at what these people in power do, or DON’T do, for those whom they are supposed to represent…

    The Muslim War On Women Comes To Germany

    By Daniel Greenfield

    The only way for European women to have a future is to fight Muslim migration.

    This New Year’s Eve in a crowd of 1,000 men, hundreds of Muslim refugees prowled, assaulting and robbing any woman they could find. A police officer described seeing crying women stumble toward him after midnight. He managed to rescue one woman whose clothes had been torn off her body from a group of her attackers, but could not save her friends because the mob had begun hurling fireworks at him.

    http://www.frontpagemag.com/fpm/261362/muslim-war-women-comes-germany-daniel-greenfield

    Evidently Mutti Merkel doesn’t understand, anymore than Barack Obama, that the leader of a country’s first duty is to protect it’s citizens. These two seem to think their job is to welcome refugees that seek to harm their citizens. I hope those women who were assaulted were among the one’s who welcomed the refugees with open arms. Because those that didn’t want them or welcome them don’t deserve to receive the repercussions of that stupidity.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Thank heavens for people like Megyn Kelly and Daniel Greenfield. I realize that the audiences they reach may not be the ones who need to hear it, but WE hear it. This kind of thing is PRECISELY what should be in the debates between presidential candidates once the nominees are chosen. I would LOVE to hear the Dems defend these practices by those whom they have insisted upon letting in to our nations.

  3. kenoshamarge Says:

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Apparently not. It is just astonishing to me that the media continues to carry the water that Dems are the ONLY ones who care abt women. Some of, if not all of, the most sexist men I have ever met were died-in-the-wool Democrats. There are so many ways in which the Dems have made clear what they REALLY think of women, and lauding Bill Clinton is just one more of them…

  4. Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

    A friend had the following video up at Facebook. It is an astonishing look at how the Left has tried to frame Hitler as a right winger when he was, in fact, a Democratic Socialist, just like someone currently running for the Presidency of the USA. Make that TWO people, since Hillary was incapable of distinguishing Socialists from Democrats.

    Here’s the link:

    Here is another piece on the gang rapes by the Muslim male “refugees”:

    http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2016/01/07/muslim-male-refugees-are-raping-women-in-europe-n2100918

    And apparently, ABC news did cover it, but it seemed to minimize the numbers by saying “dozens of women…”

    Desperate, Dishonest Donald Trump Goes Birther on Ted Cruz

    You knew it was coming!

    Donald Trump said in an interview that rival Ted Cruz’s Canadian birthplace was a “very precarious” issue that could make the Texas senator vulnerable if he became the Republican presidential nominee.

    “Republicans are going to have to ask themselves the question: ‘Do we want a candidate who could be tied up in court for two years?’ That’d be a big problem,” Trump said when asked about the topic.

    This is how Donald Trump operates: whenever he’s threatened by someone in the polls, he tries to smear his opponents. He did so with Dr. Ben Carson, calling him pathological, and he now does the same with Ted Cruz by trying to convince voters he isn’t eligible to become president because he wasn’t born in the United States.

    Sadly for the billionaire businessman, however, there is one minor problem: in September of last year he admitted that Cruz is eligible.

    https://pjmedia.com/trending/2016/1/6/desperate-dishonest-donald-trump-goes-birther-on-ted-cruz

    If this writer thinks that Trump’s b.s. will matter to the Trumpkins he’s sadly mistaken. Like Obots they have chosen their man and will not let anything he says or does confuse that choice.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      The unbelievably disingenuous manner in which Trump raised this question spoke to who he is, too. So passive/aggressive. All while shrugging his shoulders, “hey, I’m just saying, not that anyone has really raised this but me, but someone might just bring up whether or not Cruz is a US citizen…”

      It is far, FAR, past time for people to go after Trump, as this Federalist article highlights: http://thefederalist.com/2016/01/07/to-take-down-trump-you-must-attack-him-personally/

      I mean, really – if they are SO afraid of him going after them personally, they don’t deserve the office they seek. He is all the things you have said, and the writer above has said, and many others of us have said. People MUST speak up to this big-time bully, and that means pointing out ALL of his foibles, missteps, liberal connections, and more. While it may not move all the Trumpkins off of him, hopefully it will move enough people to someone who has the gravitas to be President.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        This is an important part of this piece, IMO:

        Yes, it will be the politics of personal destruction; the dirty little demon in the closet that has done so much to turn our political system into a cesspool of institutionalized mean-spiritedness. It’s an infection, true, and maybe someday another dynamic will take root, some kind of ceasefire, but, until then, it’s a good idea to accept the reality as it is, rather than as we might like it to be.

        At first it will be called sour grapes and unfair, and people will rush to his defense, claiming, well, of course the establishment wants him gone—they have everything to lose, so they smear him, the Golden Boy. If the effort to unravel the Trump folklore is as thin and weak-kneed as in the past, he will skate on it all once again.

        More likely, a small crack in the dam will appear. Trump and his supporters will do their best to put fingers in the dyke, but eventually it will give way, and when that happens there will be the biggest political pile-on since… well, maybe ever.

    Stranger than Fiction: Hollywood Gets Benghazi Right

    “This is a true story.” Those words appear onscreen to open 13 Hours, the major motion picture about Benghazi, in theaters on January 15. And with them, director Michael Bay announced that he is taking sides in the long-running debate over the attacks there on September 11, 2012.

    For three years, the White House and its defenders in the media have characterized the Libya raids as a tragedy, a series of unfortunate events that were utterly unpreventable and for which no one is much to blame. Many of those who were on the ground in Libya, CIA contractors and diplomats alike, see them as something quite different. To them, Benghazi represents bureaucratic indifference and incompetence before the attacks, deadly governmental indecision and fecklessness during the attacks, and official deception and dishonesty after the attacks.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Marge, I was LITERALLY just writing abt that movie in a post for another day. I have been looking forward to this movie SO much, and will be seeing it next weekend, no doubt about it.

      It is amazing that Hollywood gets this one right, and I understand they don’t mention Obama or Clinton by name. But the STORY of these brave men, their courage and bravery, are writ large, as it should be.

      Thanks for this!
