Israeli Columnist Shreds “Disaster Called Obama” In Oped

Graphic via The Astute Bloggers

I think it’s safe to say that Ynet journalist, Yigal Walt, is not a fan of our Dear Leader, saying he is leading the world into the abyss.

He doesn’t say anything, we, in the conservative blogosphere haven’t already said, but this is a pretty decent rant, deserving of your attention:

Barack Obama is solidifying his status as the worst president in American history. The leader who promised us a bright future of peace and fraternity is leading the American empire – and the rest of the world with it – into a dark abyss. Ever since he settled into the Oval Office, Obama has been hopping from one disaster to the next, making every possible mistake, boosting enemies and disregarding allies while ruining everything he touches in the process. To our regret, the heaviest price – for the time being at least – is being paid by residents of the Middle East.

When the masses hit Iran’s street and threatened to topple the Ayatollah regime, Obama was silent. Why should he support a struggle waged by freedom-hungry citizens against a radical Islamic dictatorship and chronic human rights violator? And so, a rare opportunity to change the face of a state that today constitutes the gravest threat to world and regional peace slipped away.

Instead of supporting the brave Iranian protestors, Obama chose to nurture his relationship with a new buddy, Bashar Assad, while portraying him as a US ally. When the same Assad started to heartily butcher his own people, while ignoring his “American friends,” Obama again chose silence, until finally breaking it with meaningless, vain declarations. For the time being Obama keeps muttering, Assad keeps murdering, and the world keeps watching and doing nothing.

So when did Obama act? Mubarak! The Egyptian ruler, possibly the wisest, most moderate Mideastern leader safeguarded the peace treaty with Israel, hunted down Islamic radicals, counter-balanced the Shiite Iran, steadfastly maintained his ties with the US and turned our crazed region into a slightly saner place. He was no angel, certainly not towards his own people, but was or is there a better realistic option?

Yet there of all places, Obama the brilliant diplomat opted to intervene aggressively, openly humiliated Mubarak and ultimately presented him with an explicit threat while the latter was struggling to maintain his rule. When the president’s “security experts” declared that the Muslim Brotherhood is a “moderate movement” and admitted they need more time to ascertain its attitude to Israel, we knew we were in for trouble.

Keep reading.

And here, via Atlas Shrugs, is a recent headline coming out of the region: Footage of Egyptians Demonstrating opposite Israeli Embassy in Cairo Showing Sign with Swastika Saying “The Gas Chambers Are Ready” Al-Jazeera TV

More of the putrid, fetid blossoms of the Obama supported Islamic spring. Of course, we knew this. Atlas called it as soon as the Muslim Brotherhood revolution began to unfold began in January. The Islamic supremacists and their leftwing useful idiots couldn’t wait to oust the first (and only) Muslim country to sign a peace accord with Israel. Mubarak, America’s most reliable Muslim ally for 30 years, was thrown under the bus by the Muslim Brotherhood stooge in the White House. Has the leftwing media who propagandized this horror as all sweetness and light corrected the record? Are they capable of picking up a bucket of water and making even so much as a feeble attempt to help put the fire that they helped start and spread? These moral cowards are incapable of humanity.

Ahmadinejad remained in power as Obama sanctioned his mass massacres in the first, real people’s revolution.
Assad, Iran’s vassal, stays in power as Obama stood by.
But Obama got tough with ……Qadafi.

Whether he is completely incompetent, or this is all by design, I’m not sure this country can survive another year and a half of this “disaster called Obama”.

Video: Racist T-Bagger Says Adding $4 Trillion to Debt is “Unpatriotic” ….

No, wait….

So there you go. If adding $4 trillion to the debt over eight years is unpatriotic, just think how much more unpatriotic it is to add $4 trillion over only two and a half years.

Townhall’s Guy Benson adds:

…President Obama submitted a 2012 budget that would have piled nearly $10 Trillion of new red ink atop the already towering national debt over the next decade — despite its $2 Trillion in proposed tax increases.  If it hadn’t been unanimously rejected by the Senate, Obama’s fiscal blueprint would have more than doubled the national debt compared to the day he took office.  If 2008’s Barack Obama indignantly declared President Bush’s $4 trillion debt increase over two full terms (accrued at an annual deficit clip of roughly $300 Billion per year) “unpatriotic,”  one wonders what pejorative he might have employed to describe his own policies less than three years later.  Instead, as body-snatcher Obama is wont to do, he’ll ignore it.

The guys a joke – a disgrace  – a complete…..(what’s the word I’m looking for?)….CONTENT WARNING!

The Free Enterprise System v.s. The Welfare State (w/videos)

Marco Rubio spoke  at the Reagan library, Tuesday night on “the proper role of government,” making the point that “poverty does not create our social problems, our social problems create our poverty.”

‘The free enterprise system has lifted more people out of poverty than all the government anti-poverty programs combined,” he said.

The only hope there is for America is for its citizens to embrace this version of the proper role of government.

Standing in stark contrast is the left’s version of the proper role of government: a  welfare state that actually encourages dependency as epitomized by the Obama administration’s policies.

For example, Obama’s free lunch program as John T. Bennett of The American Thinker reported: Obama Baits the Dependency Trap:

The Obama administration is busy expanding the exact type of vicious, ungrateful underclass which recently exploded in London.  An administration program will expand free school meal coverage to millions of young people who are not even supposed to be eligible.

A stated goal of the program is to eliminate the stigma of getting a free lunch.  But that stigma is one of the only things separating dignified free people from wretched government dependants.  There is a lot of gray in between, but the Obama program would take students from a young age and nudge them in the wrong direction.

Here’s how the program works: if 40% of students at a school qualify for public assistance, then every student in the school will get free food.  That’s free breakfast, lunch, and a snack.  If that sounds like arbitrary welfare waste, it is.  Sixty percent of the student body could be above the poverty line, ineligible for welfare, or even upper-class — it doesn’t matter.  Every student magically becomes entitled.

This welfare trap is named the Community Eligibility Option, part of President Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act.  Three states will be involved in a pilot program starting now, and more states will be phased in over time.  By 2014-15, the option will be available in all states, if this law is kept on the books.

Any student at a school with 40% of the student body on welfare is going to get his free lunch, whether he needs it or not.  That 40% can be made up of students already eligible for programs like Food Stamps or welfare (Temporary Assistance for Needy Families).  Interestingly, the category of eligibility also includes “migrant youth.”  So illegals can get in on the boondoggle as well.  If 5% of students are “migrant youth, and an additional 35% of students are on some form of welfare, the remaining 60% are automatically entitled if their school opts in.

Entire school districts, like Detroit’s, will receive free food for every single student in all grades, K-12.  The policy is coming into effect right as we learn that Michigan, for instance, recently kicked thirty thousand college students off food stamps for abusing the system.

At a time when we should be cutting spending, these programs are being expanded.  And when people  live their lives from cradle to grave depending on the government for their subsistence what we end up with is a lot of people with a feeble “entitlement mentality”

 If you receive what you’re entitled to, there is nothing to be grateful for because you’re entitled to it.  Or, if you haven’t received an entitlement, then you’re resentful because you haven’t received what you feel you are entitled to.  A few disgusting examples of this attitude can be seen in news interviews with government dependents in Clayton County, GA that have to be seen to be believed.

And here’s a disgusting example of the pernicious nature of  welfare dependency: Florida Woman Has Husband Try And Impregnate 12-Year-Old Girl So They Can Claim More Welfare Benefits…

Star Parker is the founder and president of CURE, the Center for Urban Renewal   Education, a 501(c)(3) non-profit think tank which promotes market based public policy to fight poverty.

Here she is on Fox Business  talking about how welfare dependency destroys black families:

Shocking Video Proof Of Tea Party Terrorism in Waco, Texas

Accuracy In Media’s Benjamin Johnson infiltrated a Tea Party terrorist training convention in Waco, Texas, and was stunned and amazed to find that many of the terrorists were elderly women.

This is an AIM exclusive!:

Ben Johnson at Big Government writes:

With elected officials scrambling for a cross to hang their economic failure upon, the Obama administration has declared open season on the Tea Party.  This is our generation’s form of McCarthyism.   Witch-hunting at its finest.  Attack, blame and demonize the Tea Party for all of America’s troubles.  Never mind the fact that the TP has never acted violently and is packed with veterans who served our country and sweet old ladies who love America.  The administration is enthusiastically joined by a chorus of vitriol and hate by the likes of Rep. Maxine Waters (D-CA), Rep. Frederica Wilson (D-FL) and every on camera personality at MSNBC.

I guess innocent American citizens are an easy a target for Washington when policies fail.

One thing: McCarthy went after commies because they were infiltrating the government and the culture – he didn’t do it to smear his political enemies because his own party’s policies were such abject failures. There’s a little bit of a difference there. McCarthy shouldn’t be compared to these latter day party hacks.
