Obama Admin – Arrogance Soaked in Ignorance = Experts In Lying

Obama

Last week we read with some confusion a long-winded self-congratulatory piece in the NYT that Obama lied about, . . . well, lied about pretty well everything particularly anything pertaining to his ‘historical’ Iran Deal.  He lied about the Iranian leadership.  He lied about the negotiations. He lied about Iran’s nuclear status.  He lied about the content of the deal.  He lied and lied, and did it with impunity, taking advantage of young, inexperienced, ignorant and “dumb” White House press corp  –  these demeaning terms come from the White House.  With a couple of “useful idiots” the WH arrogantly bragged that it had created an echo-chamber to sell its lies. As Rhodes put it, “They literally know nothing.”

If you address the American people and lie about not having had “sexual relations with that woman, . . . Miss Lewinsky”, you’re a liar and you may be an abuser, but that lie is unlikely to have global consequences.   When you lie to America about an agreement as consequential as The Iran Deal, the consequences will be world-changing.

When you lie about bringing down Qaddafi, Mubarak, or Assad, hundreds of millions are impacted.  The actions behind the lies have already cost hundreds of thousands of lives, and have created 60,000,000 refugees out of the Middle East and Africa.  Obama lied because he wants an Obama-sized legacy —  damn the consequences. Pyres of corpses will make for a well-lit legacy.   From the MSM, . . . “Crisis? What crisis?” 

When you read the article, you find an ignorant writer who knows nothing about foreign affairs and much less about the M.E., guiding his boss Obama, a leader who clearly knows even less than he does, down a foreign affairs road of insanity.  Narcissists driven by ideology, see all those they speak through and speak to, through blurred lens stuck in insecurity.  They perceive them as lesser beings.  For eight years this ignorance has guided the Nation into a quagmire.

The media plays its role in ensuring the deceptions resonate throughout America and around the world.  Their leader not only uses the media to do his bidding at will, but he does so all the while telling the pretend-journalists, he knows that their intellectual cupboards are threadbare. Their response, of course, is not one of embarrassment, but is,  “it’s not me he’s talking about. It’s them”.

As you read the piece, you cannot help but think how laughable this must be to people like Putin, Khamenei, Xi Jinping, Castro, or even Jong-Un.  America’s leader is lying to America to sell it a bill of goods that will undermine its long-term power and influence, possibly even lead to the use of nuclear weaponry against it.

It is evident that those in power around this President are there for their political bent, not for their knowledge, or career experience.  This is not an Administration where the best talent gets the job.  We hear from the mind of one of its own, the completely willful ignorance and insouciance with which it views the world we live in.  It refuses to understand the hatred  and the fanaticism that exists around the world, or even the obvious ruthlessness of dictators like those from Africa which it invited to the White House for dinner.

In the past his defenders pretended that Obama’s lies like, “You can keep your doctor,” were simply uttered because he didn’t know he was lying.  Or even better, he didn’t know, he’d only heard about it on the news.  Today, late in his second term, the extreme arrogance admits it lied and it even describes how it created the lies to make them float. The “echo chamber” worked.

The lies have been effective. The lies blamed others for misgovernment. Anything negative was Bush’s fault. He was an easy one to whip — he’d left town.  On other fronts, Congress was an easy mark.  Obama just said they blocked him at every turn, even though the Republicans gave him free reign, as the current support of Trump highlights. The lies flowed about education, about hemorrhaging national debt, about immigration, about unemployment, and about healthcare.

As he leaves office, we will now hear the beating of the ‘climate change’ drums leading his lie parade into the globalist sunset. Those drums will not drown out the roar of Iran’s nuclear tests.

A constituent of the vast baby boomer generation with a career which has been fortunate to know the ponderous corporate worlds, as well as the intimately pressurized, and invigorating entrepreneurial domains of high tech and venture capital, I have harvested my share of mistakes meandering through corridors of enterprise from Silicon Valley, to London and endless, colourful, sometimes praetorian points in between. The voyage has provided an abundance of fodder for a pen yielding to an inquisitive keyboard, a foraging mind, and a passionate spirit. Whether political or business or social or economic or personal, is it not all political? It is a privilege to write, and an even greater privilege to be read by anyone, and sometimes with the wind at my back the writing may occasionally be legible. I do not write to invite scorn, nor to invite respect, but if I get really lucky the writing can stimulate thinking. I also write for the very selfish purpose of animating my own processes, and engaging the best of what life offers. Above all, whether biting fire or swatting shadows, I am grateful to be gifted the freedom to write and publish whatever flows down to the keyboard. To all those who enabled this freedom, and to all those standing guard to preserve it, I am indebted.

    @DrJohn:

    What bothers me is why the left is not bothered the constant flow of deceit.

    They aren’t bothered because it’s THEIR deceit. They will make a story about Bush’s deceit about WMD’s, then make themselves outraged over something they know is a lie because it suits their purposes. Likewise, they will snicker and wink when they hear lies about our national security because they know weakening US power and influence furthers leftist goals (ignore for the moment that, as non-Muslims, they would still be as dead as other capitalists). Lies are necessary to further the liberal agenda because the facts are far too damaging.

    You know what’s funny? Even with all these machinations they never actually did “sell the Iran deal to the public”. Just like with Obamacare they’ve never gotten a majority of the public to think this is a good idea.

    I mean, it would be funny if it wasn’t so tragic and horrifying.

    @Bill: @Bill: I do believe that most of the left is incapable of comprehending the consequences of events, issues and actions until it is too late. Their decisions and world view is based upon ideology lacking in facts and reason. That is why left leaders end up with so many unintended consequences.

    I think you need to get your own ludicrously dysfunctional party in order before presuming to pass judgement on the one that’s kept the country running in spite of it. Controlling both Houses of Congress, republicans have managed to accomplish absolutely nothing. Now they’re going to try to add Donald Trump to the mix?

    The cover of Time (halfway down the linked page) sums up my thoughts quite well. I voted for Reagan in two presidential elections. I haven’t voted for a republican candidate since then. Something changed. It wasn’t all me. At this point, the GOP has become a party that I no longer even recognize.

    What is Donald Trump? People don’t have a clue, but they’re enthusiastic about what they imagine him to be. I think they’ve lost their minds.

    kept the country running? isn’t that a matter of interpretation. I’d suggest it was the over budget by 20 Trillion that kept it running. I realize a lot of that money only went to the bank accounts of dimocrats, such as Hillary, for all the illicit deals they have pulled off, and the payments to cohorts for such bamboozles as solar energy and windmills. None of which have turned a profit.

    Republicans controlled the House of Representatives during 17 of the past 21 years. Maybe you should ask them why the national debt has soared. Possibly it has something to do with repeatedly cutting taxes even though deficits are rising. Borrowing money to finance wars which you’ve underestimated the cost of by 5 to 6 Trillion dollars can run up the debt. So can tanking the national economy.

    Basically, republicans screwed up royally, and then left Obama with both the blame and the bill. And now they want to make a genuinely narcissistic billionaire reality TV host president, to sort things out.

    @Greg: Let me get this straight… you think the REPUBLICANS are dysfunctional? Well, let’s have a look at YOUR house.

    You will have your choice among these: a bitter, nagging shrew that is willing to allow her husband to sexually abuse women (and, allegedly, little girls), even attack the victims to preserve her political career, someone whose one and only singular “positive” consists of her experience, which is filled with failure and corruption. This candidate put national security are risk by having her own secret, private, unsecured server on which she put over 2000 classified documents, 22 of which are too sensitive for the investigators themselves to view. Your defense of her actions is that “there is no proof she intentionally broke the law”, making her abysmally stupid if not totally corrupt.

    OR, you can choose an avowed socialist with a history of shirking work, a misogynistic pervert who liked to imagine, as he choked his chicken, that women secretly enjoy being gang raped, whose proposals will add to Obama’s $11 trillion of new debt another $18 trillion.

    Yeah, Greg, if I were you, I would certainly be pointing to someone else’s flaws… that way you won’t become too depressed over the socialistic turn your own party has taken.

    Republicans controlled the House of Representatives during 17 of the past 21 years. Maybe you should ask them why the national debt has soared.

    I think it has to do with the $11 or 12 trillion Obama himself will have added to our debt with nothing but policies to add to that debt. It has a LOT to do with a complicit media that will vilify any Republican attempt to reform entitlements,the largest and most out of control spending we have, since Democrats have to buy their votes with entitlements rather than use their positive accomplishments to prove their valued.

    Basically, republicans screwed up royally, and then left Obama with both the blame and the bill.

    The bill was left by the liberal Community Reinvestment Act which created the recession. Obama never made a single payment. He just printed money and loaned it out at 0% interest (say, isn’t that a Muslim belief… that charging interest is BAD?) to keep his economy from going completely down the tubes. HE will leave a tremendously expensive bill for the next President to cover. Of course, Hillary or Bernie would simply do what every liberal does; ignore the problem, blame someone else and run up more debt.

    @Bill, #13:

    I think it has to do with the $11 or 12 trillion Obama himself will have added to our debt with nothing but policies to add to that debt.

    Democrats will have controlled the House of Representatives for only 2 of Obama’s 8 years in office. Only the House can originate revenue and appropriation bills. How does a President that republicans assert is too incompetent to tie his own shoe laces add $11 or 12 trillion to the national debt?

    Why do you think it would be that the increased holdings of America’s 17.5 million millionaires and billionaires is approximately equal to the total amount of the national debt?

    Is this pure coincidence? Or is it possible that, over time, cuts in high-end taxes that are not “paid for” with comparable spending cuts transfer wealth upward, while simultaneously increasing our collective debt by roughly the same amount?

    This is a crazy idea, I realize, being based on common sense and simple arithmetic. It does fly in the face of a basic tenet of the republican faith, which tells us that cutting taxes raises revenue.

    What observation should tell us is that repeatedly cutting taxes has raised the national debt. That’s the reality. We’re deeply in debt as a nation because we consistently spend and commit more money than we take in. Iraq and Afghanistan, for example will ultimately add $5-6 Trillion to the national debt. No thought whatsoever was given to where the money would come from. We were told that the Iraq war would “pay for itself,” as I recall.

    You mean like Obamacare, which was crapped out of the Senate but was deemed a tax in order to be Constitutional? Obama got a lot done in his first two years when he had full control; he blew a trillion dollars on a “stimulus” that didn’t work, funded more and more illegal immigrants, got the money-pit Obamacare, printed tons of money to keep his sorry, stagnant economy afloat and, with his lap dog Harry Reid in control of the Senate, kept budgets and economic bills from ever seeing the light of day.

    But, from what you are saying, IF the economy is doing better as the left claims, then obviously the Republicans, not Obama and the Democrats, should get the credit, right?

    You can’t have it both ways.

    @REEM: “spades”? How racist. Obama had the House and Senate for two full years. You are capable of changing history only in your own musty, moldy mind. I remain aware of reality.

    Obama has been the most failed President in history. He should be pulling for Bernie as he has the potential to be an even bigger disaster than Obama has been. Hillary might, as she enriches herself, actually improve on Obama’s economy (but, who couldn’t… besides Bernie?).

    And mass shootings why he is reigning chamion
    Mass Shootings under the Last Five Presidents

    Ronald Reagan: 1981-1989 (8 years) 11 mass shootings
    Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 5

    George H. W. Bush: 1989-1993 (4 years) 12 mass murders
    Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 3

    Bill Clinton: 1993-2001 (8 years) 23 mass murders
    Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 4

    George W. Bush: 2001-2009 (8 years) 20 mass murders
    Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 5

    Barrack H. Obama: 2009-2015 (in 7th year) 162 mass murders
    Incidents with 8 or more deaths = 18

    He has more than the previous presidents listed combined!
    He completely devastated race relations.

    When did voting for someone become a symbol of sacrificing integrity to worship? when I vote for someone to lead the local youth baseball league, I’m not pledging to ‘worship them’ am I? So whenever you make the decision as to who you will vote for, you are casting that vote as a pledge to ‘worship them’? If that were really the case, I wouldn’t vote.

    To skip voting is not an option

    Oh wait, you’re saying you have to choose which one to ‘worship’?

    You continue to spout you total ignorance go learn fool

    The Founding Fathers created a republic, “a government which derives all its powers directly or indirectly from the great body of the people.” Because they were concerned that presidential elections would become occasions for “tumult and disorder,” they agreed upon a system for electing presidents indirectly. The original electoral process established in Article II included the Electoral College, and a complicated set of rules by which these electors cast their votes. The increasing role of parties had led to complicated election results in 1796 and 1800, so by 1804 Americans passed the 12th Amendment which loosened the rules to allow political parties to play a much greater role in presidential elections.
