Kerry wanted U.S. boots on the ground in Syria, has anything changed?

SYRIA John Kerry Wants Option To Place “Boots On The Ground” For Phony Limited Strike

Just for the record from these lying weasels. Of course Kerry doesn’t want to limit boots on the ground because our boots are already there.  Just for the record. This administration talks out of both sides of their mouth. Below are notes from the clip.

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Secretary of State John Kerry said on Tuesday that a resolution in Congress on the use of military force in Syria should not remove the option of using U.S. ground troops, although he stressed there was “no intention” of inserting American soldiers into Syria’s civil war.

At the first public hearing in Congress on potential military action in Syria, Kerry said “it would be preferable” not to preclude the use of ground troops to preserve President Barack Obama’s options if there was a potential threat of chemical weapons falling into the hands of extremists.

“I don’t want to take off the table an option that might or might not be available to a president of the United States to secure our country,” Kerry told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Obama plays the tune again, “We will hunt down terrorists”

Let us hear about the partners who are going to help out our “lead from behind” President. I give you last year’s post, almost to the day. But first-

Adrienne’s Corner about said it all.

Obama: Little man sock puppet president ribbon cutter doing the bidding of his masters…

wondering when his next tee time is. 

“We will hunt down terrorists who threaten our country, wherever they are,” Obama declared in a prime-time address to the nation from the White House. “This is a core principle of my presidency: If you threaten America, you will find no safe haven.”

They’re walking across our Southern borders unimpeded because of your orders.

Has anything changed since September 9, 2013 when I did this post?

WH admits we have zero allies for Syria attack

Too bad Candy Crowley wasn’t as concerned about the truth when she moderated the debate between Romney and Obama. There are zero countries that will stick their neck out to support our one man band Syrian war event. Get off your horse Lurch, and go back and enjoy your rowboat. We are tired of being played as fools by fools.

Recently WSJ reported on John Kerry’s claim that the number of countries supporting a U.S. attack on Syria reached “double digits” but Kerry failed to name any.

JihadWatch noted the following:

Liechtenstein? Luxembourg? Andorra? San Marino? Monaco? Seychelles? Tuvalu? Tannu Tuva? No, not even them. Kerry didn’t name them because he doesn’t have them. He is bluffing.

Apparently, McDonough has a similar problem. In a CNN interview with White House Chief of Staff, Dennis McDonough was repeatedly pressed by Candy Crowley to provide examples of countries that will endorse or provide personnel or equipment for a military intervention in Syria. McDonough emphasized other nations condemnations of Syria but no specifics on support for intervention. The key WH strategy seems to be the repeated memo phrase:  ”Holding him [Syria] to account,” and vague references of “support.”

Obama’s strategic ISIS plan: Use the Free Syrian Army’s Terrorists

Last week the Free Syrian Army couldn’t be trusted. But then Obama has to come up with a plan. So what was bad last week is a great plan for our no plan President. Better yet, let us have chemical Assad help us out. I can’t wait until Wednesday for our Commander in nothing to lay out his almost plan. Great plan.

Via NY Times:

… In the interview on Sunday, Mr. Obama said he envisioned the Free Syrian Army’s providing the ground presence needed to confront ISIS in Syria. He said that until a moderate Sunni opposition emerged, there was no real hope of ousting President Bashar al-Assad of Syria. But the opposition has been fractured, and the moderate militias are viewed as far less capable than ISIS.

“Our attitude towards Assad continues to be that through his actions, through using chemical weapons on his own people, dropping barrel bombs that killed innocent children, that he has foregone legitimacy,” Mr. Obama said. “But when it comes to our policy and the coalition that we’re putting together, our focus specifically is on ISIL.” (ISIL is the name used by administration officials for the militant group.)

Obama: ‘ A supporter suggests I proclaim a State of Emergency”

Did a supporter suggest Obama  proclaim a State of Emergency or was it Valerie Jarrett to have his way? Or was it a stream of consciousness running through his head? At least not for now Mr.President?

“I was in a meeting earlier today and somebody asked, you know, Mr. President, what can you do, these folks, they just — all they do is just oppose whatever you propose even if they used to be for it, now they’re against it; if you said the sky was blue, they’d say it was green; they deny the facts, they don’t have any ideas for growing the economy or helping the middle class — maybe you just need to announce a state of emergency. I said, well, now, I’m not going to do that, that’s not how the Constitution works.”

In 2014, President Obama has made much of his pen-and-a-phone strategy to accomplish his goals in the face of what he calls an “unprecedented pattern of obstruction” from Republicans in Congress. Apparently the president’s supporters are on board with the idea of unilateral executive action. At a meeting last Friday, a supporter of the president asked about the possibility of “a state of emergency.” The president relayed the story to another groups of supporters at a Democratic National Committee event later in the day at a private residence in Purchase, New York.

Of course, “how the Constitution works” is at the heart of the dispute between the president and Republicans in the House who recently voted to move forward with a lawsuit against the president for overstepping his constitutional authority. Interestingly, regardless of how seriously President Obama took his supporter’s question, he went on to tell his audience “there’s actually a solution to this that our Founders envisioned.” Ed: Of course we know he prefers the pen and phone.

Russian Cyber Attack on Wall Street. Obama wanted to give them our Missile Codes

Let’s enjoy our reset with Russia and recall how Obama planned to give away our Missile Defense codes. But shucks, Looks like our new best friend just commenced a cyber attack on Wall Street. I love showing Clinton and Obama as the jackasses they are.

Wouldn’t it have been nice for Europe to have a Missile Defense System?

FBI investigates alleged Russian cyber attack on Wall Street

Major US financial institutions reportedly targeted by sophisticated high-level cyber-attack amid suspicions that operation was launched in retaliation for sanctions over Ukraine.

The FBI is investigating whether Russian hackers staged a cyber-attack on major Wall Street businesses this month in retaliation for US sanctions imposed over Ukraine, Bloomberg News reported last night.

The Russian hackers allegedly stole large amounts of sensitive data from JP Morgan Chase and at least one other bank, according to sources familiar with the investigation. The FBI is also reportedly looking into possible links to recent hacking of large European financial institutions.

Why does The Obama Administration Want to Give Moscow our Missile Defense Codes?
The key is Obama has to make it look good that the  negotiations with Putin have paid off and that he has not been played for a fool.”
Reuters report on a Congressional hearing about the Obama Administration considering giving Putin’s Russia access to our Missile Defense Codes. 

The Reuters report, “Obama mulls giving Moscow data on missile defense”  had these disturbing revelations from   testimony by   Deputy Assistant Defense Secretary  for Nuclear and Missile Defense Policy  Dr. Bradley H. Roberts at hearings before the House Armed Services Committee:

The Obama administration disclosed on Tuesday that it is considering sharing some classified U.S. data as part of an effort to allay Russian concerns about a controversial antimissile shield.

The administration is continuing negotiations begun under former President George W. Bush on a defense technical cooperation agreement with Moscow that could include limited classified data, Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense Brad Roberts told a House of Representatives’ Armed Services subcommittee.

He gave no details on the sort of data that might be shared under such an agreement.

Russia strongly opposes the U.S.-engineered bulwark being built in and around Europe against ballistic missiles that could be fired by countries like Iran.

We asked a missile defense analyst for his views on these revelations.  He wrote:

Bush never gave any data to the Russians–when will we learn that when the Russians complain and whine, they want something and they want stuff that is valuable……so caving to them always will hurt US security. This is the issue. Obama desperately wants a summit with the Russians in Chicago in May following the Seoul summit.  However, he has nothing to announce.  Reset doesn’t seem to be working.   There is no substance to this story unless it is a leak to see what might happen if the administration does pass such information to the Russians.  Congress appears opposed, but POTUS wants to have a photo op with  a communiqué and better video for the convention and campaign. The key is Obama has to make it look good that the  negotiations with Putin have paid off and that he has not been played for a fool.

SEOUL, South Korea (AP) — President Barack Obama told Russia’s leader Monday that he would have more flexibility after the November election to deal with the contentious issue of missile defense, a candid assessment of political reality that was picked up by a microphone without either leader apparently knowing.

“This is my last election,” Obama is heard telling outgoing Russian President Dmitry Medvedev. “After my election, I have more flexibility.”

Will the Media remain a friend of Obama after they jail a NY Times reporter?

We shall see where this leads.  Will the press remain a loyalist to Obama? The Internet bloggers are next on his list. One to pay attention to. Obama has not let up on whistle blowers, the press is next? After spying on them? Now lock them up? Every totalitarian regime must get the media to toe the line.

Via Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama is no friend of press freedom, says a New York Times reporter who may be sent to jail for refusing to reveal a source.

“A lot of people still think this is some kind of game or signal or spin,” reporter James Risen told his own paper in a profile about his plight published Saturday. “They don’t want to believe that Obama wants to crack down on the press and whistle-blowers. But he does. He’s the greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.”

Risen’s troubles stem from the 2006 publication of his book “State of War,” which included classified information about a failed CIA plot against Iran’s nuclear program. In 2008, George W. Bush’s Department of Justice subpoenaed Risen to reveal the source of the classified information. Citing his role as a journalist, Risen refused to comply, fighting the subpoena until it expired in 2009.

Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama about to lose Egypt to Russia

Good work Hillary and Barack. After Egypt asked for the military support it was promised and never received, Sissi is moving on to Russia for support. I thought I would play a few of the clips and go down memory lane of another failed policy that now will turn one of our former allies over to Russia who has been licking their chops at getting back to Egypt after getting kicked out decades ago. (WordPress has been acting up, so here goes.)

MOSCOW (AP) — Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi arrived in Russia on Tuesday for his first official visit as president and was immediately shown a selection of Russian military hardware for sale.

Russia, through expanded military and economic cooperation, has been seeking greater influence with Egypt, an important U.S. ally in the Middle East.

The military hardware, including new armored vehicles and missile systems, was put on display at the airport in Sochi for el-Sissi, the former Egyptian army chief, to inspect upon his arrival, Russian news agencies reported. He “listened attentively” to explanations of the weapons systems’ potential, the reports said.

He then headed for a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in the mountains above Sochi, the site of the 2014 Winter Olympics.
