Everything Bad Skyrockets Under Obama, Part II

Have you ever caught yourself saying, “Obama’s policies are going to get a lot of people killed” – only to correct yourself – “actually, I’m sure they’ve already gotten a lot of people killed.”

Well, you were right. Terrorism across the globe has skyrocketed during the Obama years and the carnage has been quantified. Obama’s weak foreign policy has led to the slaughter of approximately 63,214 people over just a three year period.

Via Breitbart:

The worldwide number of annual terrorist deaths has more than quadrupled since President Barack Obama was inaugurated in January 2009.

Deaths from terrorism increased 80 percent last year to an all-time-record of 32,658 people killed, compared to 18,111 in 2013. The number is up about 426 percent from the 7,654 killed by terrorists in 2008 under President Bush, according to the latest report from ‘Vision of Humanity.’

The 2014 economic cost of 13,370 terrorist attacks in 93 countries included property damage, medical costs, lost income for victims, and the indirect costs of preventing and responding to terrorist acts. The annual “Global Terrorism Index” report estimated those costs hit an all-time-high in 2014 of $52.9 billion.

Boko Haram and Islamic State of Iraq and Levant were jointly responsible for 51 percent of all claimed global terrorist fatalities in 2014. About 57 percent of all the attacks and 78 percent of all the deaths occurred in the five nations of Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, Pakistan and Syria.

It’s horrifying. For eight years, the left chanted, “Bush lied, people died.” Many, many more people have died as a result of Obama’s corruption, incompetence, lies and deceit.

Obama has probably never heard this John Stuart Mill quote, but it pertains to him and his miserable cohorts.

“War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse. When a people are used as mere human instruments for firing cannon or thrusting bayonets, in the service and for the selfish purposes of a master, such war degrades a people. A war to protect other human beings against tyrannical injustice; a war to give victory to their own ideas of right and good, and which is their own war, carried on for an honest purpose by their free choice, — is often the means of their regeneration. A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself. As long as justice and injustice have not terminated their ever-renewing fight for ascendancy in the affairs of mankind, human beings must be willing, when need is, to do battle for the one against the other.”

In May of 2014, I wrote, Have You Noticed? Everything bad ‘Sky-Rockets’ Under Obama:

 Everything that hurts people, weakens the economy, and undermines the culture, has sky-rocketed under Obama. Not good things. Only bad things.

Unless you consider government dependency to be a good thing: Government programs are sky-rocketing: Tracfone (Obama-phone) usage, foodstamp usage, medicaid expansion, welfare expansion, and the number of people on disability — all have sky-rocketed.

Insurance rates,  unemployment, racial division, non enforcement of  immigration laws, government workers, government corruption, “public sector millionaires”, homelessness,  tuition costs, inflation, taxes, debt, and intolerance for people who dare to voice non-liberal views – all have sky-rocketed.

As a result of all this, distrust in government has (you guessed it) sky-rocketed.

Name one good thing that has sky-rocketed under Obama.

Everything this president does when he’s not golfing, fund-raising or on vacation,  is geared toward his endless campaign of  political agitation and division.  Traditional enemies of America – like Communist and Islamic tyrants are not his enemies. If the enemies of his enemies are his friends – they are in fact Obama’s allies.

His enemies are those who threatens his great passion – big government. That’s why we’ve seen him sic the bureaucracy on them. No, I don’t think he’s clueless about what is going on in the Leviathan. He either enables it through neglect because he really doesn’t care: the VA scandal.

Or he is knowingly enables it: the IRS scandal.

Incompetence and bureaucracy can only explain so much failure. In Obama’s case – there is also malice.

It was something I had been noticing for a long time because it was just one thing after another and another and another and finally the VA scandal spurred me to make a list. Throughout 2015 I have often been reminded of that post: the nationwide spike in crime the distressing increase in racism (both ways), the growth of violent crimes against whites, and finally the spike in worldwide terrorism deaths –  made me think of it. 

Government waste, fraud and abuse continues to skyrocket too, with the Federal Government failing to collect $50 million in fines in their Obamaphone program.

And the  VA, one year after the scandal broke, is still a mess:

Last year, it took a courageous whistleblower, Dr. Sam Foote at the Phoenix Veteran’s Administration facility, to focus national attention on a ‘cook-the-books’ wait-times bonus scandal. At the Phoenix facility alone, Dr. Foote suggested that up to forty veterans died while waiting to see a doctor and up to 1,300 veterans had to wait up to six months for an appointment.

Although the Phoenix facility was the touchstone, the scandal was national: Memphis, Hines-Chicago, Biloxi, Albuquerque, Miami, Gainesville, Central Alabama and many other facilities were cited as ‘troubled.’

Yet, during and after the worst scandal in Veterans Administration history, not only did the VA continue the practice of doling out bonuses, but nearly half the bonuses in 2014 were paid to the exact same employees as the previous year.

Notice how they were “cooking the books” at the VA.  That’s an Obama era mainstay. In fact, it’s part of the reason why bad things are skyrocketing.

Corrupt, lazy, stupid, agenda-driven Obama officials are very big on cooking of books. They fudged deportation numbers for years in order to fool the public into thinking that Obama had deported more illegals than any other president. Meanwhile, “Credible fear” asylum applications have skyrocketed, adding hundreds of thousands of asylum seekers – many from terrorist countries – to the 2.5 million illegal immigrants who have joined the US population under Obama.

According to a U.S. News and World Report report last week, an astounding backlog of 450,000 credible fear cases are currently clogging immigration courts.

They cooked intel too, as the “skewed intel” scandal demonstrates.

Whether it was because they understood that the president was determined to ignore inconvenient threat assessments, or because they were under direct orders, top Obama officials pressured analysts to downplay  “multiple assessments” from military intelligence and the CIA regarding the “rapid rise” of ISIS in Iraq and North Africa in the year before the group took over huge swaths of Iraq in 2014.

They cooked the false Benghazi talking points, too if you remember.

Climate change quackery involves all sorts of manipulation of data – something leftists excel at – not to mention fake-ass studies like the “97% of climate scientists agree with the liberal politicians” hokum.

I guess you could say “cooking the books” has skyrocketed under Obama, too.

Good God, and then there’s the flurry of “How-To” articles instructing special snowflakes and SJWs how to survive Thanksgiving dinner with the troglodyte conservatives in their families –  or how to take the opportunity to push the latest left wing enthusiasm – like Obamacare (which is unraveling as we speak – Uncle Fuddy-Duddy was right all along about that) or gay marriage, gun control, or BlackLivesMatter on them. The left never sleeps.

So, oh joy – the politicization of the holidays has also skyrocketed under Obama.

Jeez, I don’t know how much more of this malignant tumor on the body politic that is this toxic A-hole, Barry H. Obama, this formerly great nation can stand.

We’ve got over a year to go – and in 2016, he’s promised to go after our guns – the only good thing that skyrocketed under him.



Former CIA/al Qaeda Double Agent Predicts ISIS Attack on American Soil in Next Couple Of Weeks

A Danish ex-terrorist told Megyn Kelly Tuesday night that he thinks an attack on the United States will likely happen in the next couple of weeks.

Morten Storm, a former Al Qaeda member who became a CIA double agent, says he was embedded with terrorists long enough to understand how they think.

“I believe that within the next two weeks, we will have a second Europe again,” Storm said on “The Kelly File” tonight.

“The people who are on the run at the moment from ISIS in Europe are very desperate, and they know their time’s up, and they will need to do as much damage as possible,” he explained.

Staging an attack here would be “a bit different,” because borders here are more tightly controlled, Storm noted.

But on the other hand, people here have more access to firearms, he said.

He says terrorist militants may focus on “softer targets” in America, such as civilians in “shopping malls,” he said.

I like that Storm made a point of reading from the Hadith to show where the violent ideology comes from. As the President of Egypt, Abdel Fattah Saeed Hussein Khalil el Sisi noted in his extraordinary and ground-breaking New Years Day speech calling for a reformation of Islam – the very “texts and ideas that we have sacralized over the centuries are antagonizing the entire world.”

Morten Storm’s book is Agent Storm: My Life Inside al Qaeda and the CIA.

Morten Storm was an unlikely jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born terrorist cleric. But after a decade of jihadi life, he not only repudiated extremism but, in a quest for atonement, became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence.

Agent Storm takes readers inside the jihadist world like never before, showing the daily life of zealous men set on mass murder, from dodging drones with al Qaeda leaders in the Arabian desert to training in extremist gyms in Britain and performing supply drops in Kenya. The book also provides a tantalizing look at his dangerous life undercover, as Storm traveled the world for missions targeting its most dangerous terrorists, and into the most powerful spy agencies: their tradecraft, rivalries, and late-night carousing, as well as their ruthless use of a beautiful blonde in an ambitious honey trap. Agent Storm is a captivating, utterly unique, real-life espionage tale.

Obama Finally Surpasses Al Gore in Climate Alarmism


The fact is that climate is changing faster than our efforts to address it. That, ladies and gentleman, must change. We are not acting fast enough.”

“Unless the world acts more aggressively and more quickly, “entire nations will find themselves under severe, severe problems: More drought. More floods. Rising sea levels. Greater migration. More refugees. More scarcity. More conflict.”

“If we do nothing, Alaskan temperatures are projected to rise between six and twelve degrees by the end of the century ”

After several days of propagating some of the most hysterical global warming warnings ever made, Obama was roundly rebuffed, as several Superpowers Refused To Sign Arctic Climate Agreement.

The US-led GLACIER environmental conference in Anchorage ended with a joint declaration calling for more international action to tackle climate change. But Russia (the world’s leading oil and gas producer), China (the world largest producer of goods), and India with its huge emerging economy opted not to sign the document, however nonbinding it might appear. For China and India reducing emissions entails huge expenditure and loss of economic effectiveness, and for Russia the upcoming environmental deal brings additional costs to the oil and gas extraction industries. Moscow is boosting Russia’s presence in the Arctic, including militarily, for at least two reasons: future hydrocarbons extraction and the Northern Sea Route, a much shorter way from Asia to Europe, which could soon be operable year-around because of less ice in the Arctic Ocean.

But President O-ManBearPig has managed to finally replace Al Gore as the nation’s most hysterical and ridiculous alarmist.

Clinton Camp Blocks Daily Mail Reporter From NH Events

A Daily Mail reporter with an eye for Clinton campaign plants was persona non-grata at some campaign events in New Hampshire, Monday.

David Martosko broke a story back in April exposing an “unscripted” Clinton campaign event in Iowa that turned out to be heavily choreographed with Democrat activists.

Martosko writes at the Daily Mail:

Driving through New Hampshire in the rain without knowing where you’re headed is an unnerving experience, but that’s where I found myself this morning after Hillary Clinton’s staff said I wouldn’t be allowed to do my job reporting on her campaign.

At the Clinton camp’s request, a group of journalists set up a traveling ‘pool’ so a single print reporter can be everyone’s eyes and ears at events where a room is too small to fit a crush of questions from a larger group.

Plus it saves more than a dozen news organizations the expense of having to be on the campaign trail every time Clinton decides to speak.

On Monday I was the designated ‘pooler,’ tasked by this informal group of my colleagues with going to two events in New Hampshire.

I landed at the Manchester, N.H. airport well after midnight, thanks to a lengthy flight delay in Washington. A message was waiting for me from one of the reporters who has the thankless task of coordinating the pool with the Clinton campaign.

There was a problem: Hillary’s press staff said DailyMail.com wasn’t welcome, and they decided it at the last minute.

The pool was asked to send a different reporter. It was too late to substitute someone else in the Live Free or Die state at that point, so I said I’d show up anyway.

Six hours earlier I had received emails from two different Clinton media liaisons – including the former secretary of state’s traveling press secretary, Nick Merrill – telling me where to show up and when.

So what happened? That’s the nagging question.

Monday morning I showed up at 7:45 in a parking lot where I was to hop on a Clinton campaign van for a drive to the town of Rochester, where the first event would be.

A very junior staffer told me I couldn’t climb aboard: I wasn’t ‘on the list.’

The Clinton Traveling Press Pool released a statement Monday evening to address the slight, saying, ‘Any Attempt By The Campaign To Dictate Who Is In The Pool is Unacceptable.’

“We would like to see all campaign events open to the public and the full press corps, but when that is not possible we have agreed to pool coverage,” McClatchy’s Anita Kumar wrote on behalf of the cited organizations below. “We haven’t yet had a clear explanation about why the pool reporter for today’s events was denied access. But any attempt by the campaign to dictate who is in the pool is unacceptable. The pool is open to any print organization willing to take part.”

Martosko appeared on the Kelly File with Megyn Kelly to discuss what happened:
Martkoso said that when the Clinton camp initially tried to bar him from being the pool reporter for the event, “to a man and woman” all the reporters from the news organizations said, “No. The Clinton campaign does not get to choose who covers them.”
He added, “this is the kind of thing you see in other countries we don’t want to emulate.”
As we reported earlier today, the Daily Mail’s editor for U.S. politics, David Martosko, was scheduled to be the pool reporter covering the Hillary Clinton campaign today. Team Hillary shut him out, just coincidentally a couple of days after Martkosko criticized some of the Clinton-covering media for their lapdog-ish behavior.

At an event Monday evening,  the Sec. Service agent wouldn’t let Martosko into the YMCA venue to go to the bathroom.  “Hit the woods,” he reportedly said.

Howie Kurtz: Stephanopoulos Blunder “Severe”, “Unthinkable” (Video)

Megyn Kelly led off her show Thursday night with the George Stephanopoulos bombshell that the Washington Free Beacon (not Politico) broke.

As you surely know by now, Steppie neglected to disclose his Clinton Foundation donations even as he reported on the Clintons and their foundation/slushfund – a particularly egregious oversight –  considering  a hard-hitting interview he had with Peter Schweizer, who he aggressively grilled over “Clinton Cash” – the book Schweizer wrote about the Clinton Foundation.

Kelly and Marc Thiessen remarked upon the irony of Stephanopoulos (a Clinton insider who worked in the Clinton White House) questioning the partisan motivations of  former Bush speechwriter Peter Schweizer.

“George Stephanopoulos actually questioned whether Peter Schweixer had a partisan interest in his book because he had worked for four months in the Bush administration — when he was the communications director for the Clinton White House and the Communications Director for the 1992 Clinton Campaign, and is it fair to say maybe he has a partisan interest in defending Hillary Clinton?” Thiessen said.

Kelly cited Eric Wemple of the Washington Post media blog, who said; “A donation from Stephanopoulos to the Clinton Foundation in any amount constitutes a scandal and an immediate crisis for ABC News.”

Howard Kurtz remarked, “This blunder by Stephanopoulos is so severe that it really threatens to undo what he’s accomplished in his 18 years at ABC News.”

He added that for Steppie to given this money to the Clinton Foundation and not disclose the donations to his bosses or viewers is “unthinkable.”

Kelly asked why Stephanopoulos would be considered too partisan to moderate a debate, but not the entire 2016 campaign. ot so much conflict that he isn’t stepping out of 2016 coverage entirely.

Kurtz said he should have found “any other charity on earth to give it”


WFB: ABC News Anchor George Stephanopoulos Donated $50,000 to Clinton Foundation

PJ Tatler: ABC News Should Be Ashamed
The underhanded way ABC rolled out a controversial news story about one of its anchors today is disgraceful.

While the contributions were publicly available information, the host had not disclosed the conflict of interest to ABC viewers – until he was caught by Andrew Stiles of the Washington Free Beacon.

Stiles asked ABC for a comment, and while they were waiting for a reply, ABC leaked the story to Dylan Byers of Politico, who titled his story “George Stephanopoulos discloses $50,000 contribution to Clinton Foundation” (as if the idea to disclose was all Stephanopoulos’s).

A half an hour after Politico’s story ran, ABC News sent a statement  to the Washington Free Beacon.
