Saturday Movie Matinee: “The Most Narcissistic, Self-Absorbed President We’ve Ever Had”

Sean Hannity had Lt. Col. Ralph Peters on to talk about Obama’s weird detachment in the face of  alarming world events  – something even people left-of-center have been noticing,  and commenting on.

“Sean, as you know – I share your anger, but we all should be feeling a great deal of sorrow because of the missed opportunity,”  Peters began. “One of the many tragedies here is, had our first mixed race president been merely competent – been less arrogant, a bit more capable – if  he had just been an average president – a Taft or Coolidge – it would have been so great for this country. He could have brought people together – it would have been great for our image in the world.”

That is the most tragic thing about Obama, I’ve always thought. The first black president purposefully divided a country that so wanted to like him. But he never wanted to be the president of the whole United States.  He only wanted to be the president of  the left-wing of his party. He is fundamentally transforming the country not because he loves it but because he thinks it’s inadequate and unfair and he’s the man to improve it. People who love their country and don’t want it changed, he has no use for and he’s made that abundantly clear time and time again.

Peters continued with this devastating indictment: “he doesn’t really connect with people. He doesn’t care about other human beings. I think he’s the most narcissistic, self-absorbed president we’ve ever had.”

He added, “Sean, I don’t think we could have picked a worse man in these times to be our…president – I can’t say leader because he’s not a leader – but to be our president.”

“He just doesn’t like America very much. He’s not grateful to it. He doesn’t like our system of government – the separation of powers – clearly he doesn’t like that. He’d much rather have the Hugo Chavez or Juan Peron model. He’s a man who doesn’t like our military, who believes America is the problem – as we heard as far back as the Cairo speech – I mean, we have a man – he’s  not a cipher exactly in the oval office, but he’s a man who’s been elected president of a country he doesn’t really like, and whose population he distrusts and whose military he despises.”

Mediaite: Bill O’Reilly Mock MSNBC Krystal Ball Over Malaysia Airline MH17 Prank Call:

Bill O’Reilly and Bernard Goldberg could barely contain how unbelievably ridiculous they found it that MSNBC embarrassed itself today with an “exclusive” interview on MH17 that turned out to be a prank call. Both men mocked Krystal Ball in particular, calling her “inexperienced,” and Goldberg saying she’s a “moron” that makes Ron Burgundy look good.

O’Reilly surmised that Ball must not have heard the comment about Howard Stern’s ass, because “nobody in their right mind would continue a phone call with somebody who uttered that crudity… even somebody as inexperienced as that woman.”

Red State: I stand with Glenn Beck, not Robert Malthus:

I see a pattern in the online debates over Glenn Beck’s plan to bring a few thousand hot meals to children sent alone to to the US from Mexico. Anytime someone defends the practice, his critics get derailed in a massive non sequitur, beginning to argue about the gravity of the illegal immigration crisis, the economics of illegal immigration, and other related topics. The net effect is to say or to imply that the defender of Glenn Beck is simply wrong on illegal immigration.

The fact is, Glenn Beck’s actions are right or wrong independent of the correct policy on illegal immigration, and the entire debate is indicative of a moral decay that extreme leftists have injected into our rhetoric. We need to throw off their influence, now.

Let’s get this out of the way now. The President and his party have no regard for the people of Mexico. We saw that with the Fast and Furious scandal, and we see it now with their unguarded, reckless rhetoric that, as Beck himself has said, “engineered a humanitarian crisis in order to advance progressive policies on illegal immigration.” It’s amoral political posturing, degrading the rule of law and creating a horrible situation.

RightWingNews: Mexico Made a Deal To Send More Illegal Immigrants to the US:

   It’s official: the illegal immigration crisis we’re seeing right now is nothing less than an invasion of the United States, made possible by the Mexican and Guatemalan governments — and of course, our own Dear Leader, who is sitting blithely by, letting it all happen. The presidents of Mexico and Guatemala, Enrique Pena Nieto and Otto Perez Molina, just held a press conference announcing how exactly they were facilitating the illegal invasion into the United States by their countrymen.

Breitbart: EXCLUSIVE: TSA ALLOWING ILLEGALS TO FLY WITHOUT VERIFIABLE ID, SAYS BORDER PATROL UNION:

MCALLEN, Texas—Illegal aliens are being allowed to fly on commercial airliners without valid identification, according to the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC). “The aliens who are getting released on their own recognizance are being allowed to board and travel commercial airliners by simply showing their Notice to Appear forms,” NBPC’s Local 2455 Spokesman, Hector Garza, told Breitbart Texas.

“This is not the CBP [Customs and Border Protection] or another federal agency renting or leasing an aircraft, these are the same planes that the American public uses for domestic travel,” said Garza. “This just adds insult to injury. Not only are we releasing unknown illegal aliens onto American streets, but we are allowing them to travel commercially using paperwork that could easily be reproduced or manipulated on any home computer. The Notice to Appear form has no photo, anyone can make one and manipulate one. They do not have any security features, no watermark, nothing. They are simply printed on standard copy paper based on the information the illegal alien says is the truth.”

“Last month Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas openly united with the evil terrorist group Hamas. And at this very moment, they are raining down rockets upon the innocent citizens of Israel,” said Rep. Franks, a Republican said in a passionate and forceful tone.
“Half of all Israelis have sought cover in bomb shelters across their tiny country,” the Republican congressman said. And the Obama administration has had the reprehensible gall to praise Abbas as someone who is, quote, ‘committed to non-violence and cooperation with Israel,’” Franks angrily explained, while quoting Obama as saying, “Finally peace is possible.”

Rep. Franks went on to accuse Obama of conducting a “flushed and breathless rush to embrace terrorists,” and an “unprecedented act of cowardice and betrayal” towards Israel, the only democracy and strongest American ally in the Middle East.

“I thought that nothing this president could ever say or do would surprise me anymore. But this president is flushed and breathless rush to embrace terrorists launching rockets at Israeli children is an unprecedented act of cowardice and betrayal.”

“Well, first of all, you have to remember, the ethic of conquest, the idea that you get land by grabbing it from someone else has been occurring since the dawn of mankind,” the conservative filmmaker answered, noting that native Americans often took land from others.

“Slavery was a universal institution, but only one nation, America, fought a war to end it,” he added.

En route from Baghdad to Tikrit, Guitard’s unarmored vehicle took a direct hit from a remotely detonated roadside bomb believed to be made of four artillery shells linked together. The impact of the blast shredded Guitard’s legs, collapsed his lung, buried a rock in his right eye and ruptured his internal organs so badly he had to be cut open from chest to naval to allow them room to swell up and out.

Today, Guitard wears two gyroscopic, carbon fiber prosthetic legs that allow him to walk, drive a car, climb stairs and even ride his motorcycle. And on this Fourth of July – a decade after the blast – he watches new developments in Iraq with deep sadness.

“It hurts,” said Guitard, who lives with his wife and four children in Northeast Richland. “But my take on it is that I don’t want to lose any more American lives because of this. We’ve sacrificed too much already.”

The home was a “major” fixer-upper because it was all the Bernardo family could afford.

Epperson gladly agreed to watch his Marine brother’s home, though he had much bigger plans in mind.

The reason why Koskinen was so calmly defiant was because he knows he’s untouchable and the fix is in. While the ‘pubs sputter in righteous anger, they calmly sit back, point and laugh.

This is how the progressive left rolls. Lie – obfuscate, deflect, defame.

The Dem stooge Bolling had on even argued the thoroughly discredited notion that progressives were targeted as much as conservatives. He lied right to Bolling’s face, and  Bolling – to his great discredit didn’t dispute it.

SHARYL ATTKISSON: They’re just not terribly interested or their interests often lie elsewhere in other stories. That in the limited time they have on television to tell stories they can find plenty of other ways to fill in the space then to look into some of these controversies. I think to some degree they have been played by propaganda interests who suggest that if these stories are covered they are simply phony scandals and Republican generated. Which they’re not, in my opinion. From a neutral viewpoint there are many important questions to be asked and implications here. But the propaganda campaign says that if you’re interested in the story you’re a conservative and a right-wing nut. And media should not be swayed by that but, I think to some degree they are.

At the time, Ms. Lerner asked IRS IT professionals to restore her hard drive, but they were unable to do so. Nonetheless, the IRS has or will produce 24,000 Lerner emails from this 2009-2011 time period, largely from the files of the other 82 individuals.

 Columnist Charles Krauthammer made something very clear to Fox News’ Megyn Kelly Friday night: 1) if he was President of the United States, he would have proceeded with the deal President Obama made to get Bowe Bergdahl back, and 2) the deal President Obama made was unquestionably a “defeat” for the United States. He argued that the way Obama’s been acting about the deal is very unbecoming of the president. Krauthammer said for Susan Rice, firstly, to praise Bergdahl is “so ridiculous” given everything publicly known about him. He said that with the deal struck with the Taliban, there is no “real prevention” of the activities of the five released commanders.

The Obama administration reportedly considered offering cash for his release as late as December 2013. The State Department has repeatedly refused to say whether the deal that released Bergdahl involved any cash payment.

The ransom plan was reportedly abandoned, but the intelligence official insisted that there is reason to believe that cash changed hands as part of the deal.

“The Haqqanis could give a rat’s ass about prisoners,” the official said, referring to the Haqqani Network, a designated terrorist group in Afghanistan and Pakistan, and the five Guantanamo Bay prisoners who were freed in exchange for Bergdahl’s release.

“The people that are holding Bergdahl want[ed] cash and someone paid it to them,” he said.

USA Today (!): White House plots VA-scandal distractions: 

An air of hubris — a sort of we-know-it-all quality — has permeated the Obama White House from the beginning. It worked as a public relations strategy for the better part of five years. But it seems to be breaking down now.

The sophisticated swagger and savoir faireprojected by the President and his strategists — audacity with cool, if you will — captivated a major segment of the 2008 voting public, many of whom were tired of George W. Bush and believed Barack Obama could bring real change to Washington.

This somewhat-arrogant-and-sometimes-intimidating PR approach to governing had success. It helped him pass a $787 billion economic stimulus bill and browbeat fellow Democrats to enact a highly partisan health care plan that Republicans wanted no part of. It got him through a bruising re-election campaign despite a less-than-stellar record on the economy and still-lingering questions about his handling of the terroristattack in Benghazi, Libya.

But over the past 12 months, the vaunted Obama PR limousine, used to smoothing out bumps with ease, has been blowing tires as it tries to roll over a minefield of crises and scandals.

Diane Dimond, RCP: The President’s Very Real Military Problem:

The president of the United States is the commander in chief over all branches of the military. It is a historic time, given that no military member goes public to speak negatively about the ultimate commander.

But now, with the scandal in full bloom, after the administration’s smokescreen about what triggered the deadly attack on the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya, and after the president’s tepidly received speech at West Point announcing diplomacy will replace military responses henceforth, the time for silence is over.

That’s somewhat better than my worst fear, which involve a coordinated effort to smear the entire (swiftboating) platoon as psychopaths.
