The Syrian policy makers, and the ‘Doing stupid stuff’ done in spades

By now most everyone has heard about the food fight going on between Hillary Clinton and Obama’s Syrian policy or lack thereof otherwise known as “doing stupid stuff”.  Hillary Clinton Slams Obama’s “Don’t Do Stupid Stuff” Foreign-Policy Mantra… shar.es/1noPFG  Something like that.Let’s take a look as Clinton’s keen insight morphs from Assad being a good guy to well, you know, she wishes to dispense with him as she took care of business in Libya and Egypt. But let me throw in a few more characters in this bizarre play that must have the world in absolute astonishment. Don’t miss the first Hillary clip!

Nancy Pelosi

In 2007, Nancy Pelosi, over strong objections from the  State Department, visited Syria, and said, “The road to Damascus is a road to  peace.” Senator John Kerry predicted that “Syria will change as it embraces a  legitimate relationship with the United States.” Read more:  Newsbusters

John Kerry

It wasn’t so long ago that Kerry made repeated pilgrimage to Syria, meeting with Assad five times between 2009 and 2011.

He famously used the adjective “generous” to describe Assad, as the Wall Street Journal’s Bret Stephens recalled in a column:

On March 16, 2011—the day after the first mass demonstration against the regime—John Kerry said Assad was a man of his word who had been “very generous with me.” He added that under Assad “Syria will move; Syria will change as it embraces a legitimate relationship with the United States.” This is the man who might be our next secretary of state.

As Michael Rubin recently wrote in Commentary Magazine, Kerry’s staffers described “their collective cringe when, after a motorcycle ride with Bashar al-Assad, he returned to Washington referring to Bashar as ‘my dear friend.’”

The National Review detailed more about Kerry’s positive impression of Assad:

After a “long and comprehensive” meeting with Assad in April of that year, Kerry described it as “a very positive discussion.” A month later, Kerry was back in Syria. His spokesman, insisting that “Syria can play a critical role in bringing peace and stability if it makes the strategic decision to do so,” asserted that Kerry had “emerged as one of the primary American interlocutors with the Syrian government.” Despite the senator’s interlocutions, Assad, it appears, has made the wrong “strategic decision.”

The Washington Free Beacon in an article titled “An Affair to Remember: John Kerry Hearts Bashar al-Assad” called Kerry the Syrian dictator’s “highest-ranking apologist in American politics”:

Hillary Clinton and her various changing views on Assad.

At this point, Madame Secretary believes that Bashar al- Assad is the good guy. That was in 2011.

Reporters aren’t interested in exploring aspects of Clinton’s job as Secretary  of State. One such comment not getting attention is her 2011 labeling of Bashar  al-Assad, the man almost  certainly (maybe) behind a devastating chemical weapons attack, as a “reformer.”

On the March 27, 2011, Clinton insisted, “There’s a different leader in  Syria now. Many of the members of Congress of both parties who have gone to  Syria in recent months have said they believe he’s a reformer.” (The Washington  Post gave this remark three Pinocchios. Clinton later backtracked.)  Yet, ABC, NBC and CBS have not reexamined the comments in the wake of the attack  or its accuracy.

Uploaded on Mar 31, 2011. Included in the clip is her take on the wonders of the administration’s actions in Libya as well. 

Here are the notes from the clip below, her view takes quite a turn!

Published on Jan 1, 2013 – A SURPRISE at the ending of the clip.

Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State, has been calling over and over since 2011 for the legitimate president of Syria, Bashar al-Assad, to leave power and to let a bunch of al-Qaeda supporters known as the Syrian National Council (later Syrian National Coalition) replace him. However, the repeated defeats in battles of her “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) and their al-Qaeda Jihadi assistants have caused her much frustration culminating in a blood clot behind her ear. She will be replaced this month by John Kerry.

 

 

Leon Panetta

Back in August of 2012, former U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta says that when Bashar al-Assad loses his grip on power, he wants the Syrian military to remain in place. I am sure Kerry no doubt has an even happier ending.

Delusional Panetta wants Syrian Military to stay, S. Power confused

Depraved and Delusional formerUS Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta tells CNN that the US must make sure that the ruthless genocidal hated Baathist Alawite sect-packed Secret Police Security Forces stay in power after the inevitable overthrow of Dictator Bashar Assad.

Many of us have been looking for what the ending would be in Syria after we dispatched another head of a Middle East country. I happened on a Panetta video whose is equally clueless regarding the administration’s best wishes for a happy ending.

 

 

John Brennan (who now leads the CIA) has previously defended jihad as a “legitimate tenet of Islam.”

On June 29, 2011, John Brennan, who was then a senior adviser to the president and is currently the CIA director, explained the Obama administration’s counterterrorism strategy.

“Our strategy is…shaped by a deeper understanding of al Qaeda’s goals, strategy, and tactics,” Brennan claimed. “I’m not talking about al Qaeda’s grandiose vision of global domination through a violent Islamic caliphate. That vision is absurd, and we are not going to organize our counterterrorism policies against a feckless delusion that is never going to happen. We are not going to elevate these thugs and their murderous aspirations into something larger than they are.”

CIA sending guns to Syrian rebels via Muslim Brotherhood

Yesterday, the Turkish media reported, “Turkey … agreed with the US on a deal involving the transfer of US-engineered unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) that could prove crucial in combating terrorism.” The Predator drones, expected to be delivered in June 2012, are supposed to help the Turks combat terrorists, which in Ankara’s narrow definition means the Kurdistan Workers’ Party (PKK) crossing into Turkey from the Iraq border.Weekly Standard

Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are allegedly paying for weapons sent to Syrian opposition rebels through CIA operatives working on Turkish soil, the New York Times has reported

Liz Cheney, Elizabeth O’Bagy, Military contractors- a toxic brew an interesting post, if one enjoys the weeds.

This is Moustafa.

And look,

John McCain there in the middle, and a couple of Islamist kidnappers behind him.

setf-mouaz-mccain

Moustafa and O’Bagy arranged McCain’s trip to Syria through the Syrian Emergency Task Force.

You probably have guessed where this is going by now. Mr. Moustafa is a Palestinian Arab, and was involved in the Libya war before he turned up in Syria. He openly hates Israel. He opposed the overthrow of Mohammed Morsi in Egypt.

Progressive Noam Chomsky: ‘Sarah Palin was right’

Just who is Noam Chomsky? Another Jew who is filled with animus toward Israel. Another classic anti-American who leaves one wondering when if ever we will we have another McCarthy hearing to try to rid our country this time of the desert loving Muslims. This time he surprises us with his take on Sarah Palin. My, Noam never ceases to amaze.

Here is just a flavor of his point of view. From Democracy Now

Hideous. Sadistic. Vicious. Murderous. That is how Noam Chomsky describes Israel’s 29-day offensive in Gaza that killed nearly 1,900 people and left almost 10,000 people injured. Chomsky has written extensively about the Israel/Palestine conflict for decades.

Is it Daytime or Nighttime in America?

A reminder of where we were once upon a time. Ronald Reagan, always optimistic  and hopeful. Then Mark Levin’s take on the ad with an Obama spin. “It’s nighttime in America”. One has to wonder why Obama even ran for office in 2012 as he appears so disinterested.

It’s Nighttime in America

 

MARK LEVIN: “It’s nighttime in America. Just think where we were four short years ago. Today, we have 15% actual unemployment, foreclosures are at a historic high, gasoline is 70% higher than before and the debt is over $15 trillion. It’s nighttime in America. Today, Americans are divided race, class warfare replaces capitalism and the Constitution is all but ignored. It’s nighttime in America.”

Where are the Knights Templars?

Where are our Knights Templar? Sunday’s sad day of respite, as we pray for the persecuted throughout the world. The Barbarians rise again.

Is it time for another Christian Crusade? UPDATE: The Pope says yes

UPDATE:

Pope Francis has joined with Christians facing genocide in Iraq and Syria, calling upon the world to make an armed response to the Islamic State. He has asked the world to “stop these crimes” and his envoy called for the use of “a professional, well-equipped army.”

Catholic News

LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) – You know a situation is bad when a pope or his envoy calls for an armed response. Pope Francis, widely appreciated as a practical and realistic man, is not just calling for a cease-fire or negotiations. Instead, he is inviting an armed response to the terrorism of the Islamic State.

One hears precious little from Christian Churches regarding the absolute horror that is befalling our Sisters and Brothers around the world. Barbarians are perpetrating  unimaginable horror and are marching across the Middle East with little if any obstacle.

Our Media chooses to “spare” us from most of the pictures of these  horrors because it would offend our sensibilities. Too graphic they say. Some of the better coverage has been by Walid Shoebat. Visit his site. Is it time for a another Christian Crusade?

Muslims Take Christian Children And Behead Them, Rape And Kill Their Mothers, And Hang Their Fathers,

By Theodore Shoebat Muslims in Iraq, all members of ISIS, are beheading Christian children, raping and butchering their mothers, and hanging their fathers. Mark Arabo, a Chaldean-American leader, had this to say: They are systematically beheading children” He did an interview explaining this horror

Included in this post is a wonderful documentary that will take an evening to view, but once one gets started, it is hard to turn if off. Many primary sources are quoted  both Muslim and Christian. Enlarge the video for the full effect.

Come, my brethren! Take courage and stand beneath our banner! The darkness closes in, and we are the only true defenders of the Light! March to victory and arise triumphant!

Kerry: No more farms for African starving kids because it causes Global Warming

So our wizard had much to say to enlighten the African Leaders at the recent summit. Better for you to stay in the stone age and starve. I am sure this impressed many of the tyrant leaders who are more than happy to dispense with their inhabitants. Climate Change is top on the list for Africa.

 

Why the United States is giving away ownership of our Energy and Refineries

 

Yesterday my post was U.S. giving away ownership and control of our Energy and refineriesPaladin, who writes a great blog commented on the post, and it is worthy of a read. Pay him a visit if you haven’t done so. His response gives a succinct explanation of how we came to where we are. Where we are headed. Here we go:

The left’s grand idea to prevent WW III was to intertwine all of the key player’s economies so that could never happen because everybody would go broke. There are several outcomes from such a strategy, the first is that if one economy fails to thrive, all connected economies take a hit. This is why it is said that if the American economy has a cold, the rest of the world gets the flu. The flawed premise was that America’s economy would always be preeminent.

The second effect is a bit more subtle. As foreign influence grows, international policy becomes critical. This is why Obama’s foreign policy is so important. The fact that he basically doesn’t have one, is not good news. By being a follower and not a leader, Obama submits America to the will of her enemies by default. The third effect is massive corruption.

We have already seen the effect of such corruption with the collapse of the housing market in 2008. A collapse formed by the left holding a gun to the head of lenders and forcing them to make loans to people who could not pay them back. Banks sold these loans to investors who purchased insurance to limit risk and the rest is history. There were runs on commercial banks, but the public was kept calm and the consumer banks dodged a bullet. We began printing money around the clock in March of that year because the government saw what was coming and have never stopped. Flooding our economy with cash worked to calm fears initially, but economists believe that you cannot do so and avoid the consequence of run away inflation. While that has not happened yet, many believe that it is only a matter of time and that is why economic growth is slow as the economic shell game tries desperately to suck up all of that extra cash.

The fourth effect is overconfidence. Most in American government believe that our foreign co-conspirators, because the only way any of this works is with the cooperation of foreign powers, would never allow our economy to go belly up. If we go, they go. At least that is the thinking. But there may be ways around an economic collapse. The use of gold reserves for instance. Something that America no longer believes is necessary, but the Chinese and Russians still have. In fact, the Chinese have been buying gold steadily for years and hanging on to it. Could that mean that the Red Chinese would survive if the American economy collapses? Possibly. If the American economy implodes, the Red Chinese transition to the gold standard and possibly survive the chain reaction of economic collapse.

The untold story is that wealth is being created outside of the United States. As American assets are being carved up by foreign powers, the best and the brightest in those fields are going to work for them. American ownership of American resources is dwindling. And American citizens become beholden to foreign powers and not their own government. Who do you think these citizens will elect to that government? Will the public support policies that are not favorable to their employers? Why would a citizen care about something that he no longer has a vested interest in? That is the long range problem and one that terrifies the left when they consider the influence of capitalism, but not, strangely, when one trades the place of the capitalist with that of the foreign dictator.

As the foreign acquisition of American business continues to grow, so too does foreign influence on our government. Influence that may or may not have America’s best interests at heart. Such a circumstance does not see America as an equal, but as a resource to be tapped. Ultimately, that is the grave danger of foreign ownership and why colonialism failed. It’s just that in our case, there are no foreign troops. Although I would not be surprised to see such should the American economy fold.

We have never truly recovered economically from 9/11. While the loss of life was tragic, the economic damage was far worse. In short, we are very vulnerable economically right now. We spend like there is no tomorrow, and just wait until the medical bills begin to roll in from Obamacare. Cloward and Piven’s strategy is alive and well, and the aim is to crash the American economy to initiate governmental change by crisis.

There are a lot of pokers in the economic fire right now.
