In a video posted to YouTube by the White House, Joe Biden, the walking, talking gaffe machine currently filling the position of vice president, was caught lying about his alleged college football career — again.
Biden made the statement while welcoming the FIFA World Cup Trophy Tour to the State Department.
“The referendum in Crimea was a clear violation of Ukrainian constitution and international law”
- Barack HUSSEIN Obama’s statement after Sunday’s Crimean vote
Well…well…the man who could care less about the U.S. Constitution suddenly cares about the Ukrainian constitution and international law…all while his very inaction’s helped fuel this current situation on. And now comes useless sanctions that Putin will just laugh at while calling Obama’s bluff as he sends Russian forces further into the Ukraine.
And those in Poland, Hungary, and the Czech Republic, and even those in Kazakhstan, are all now fearful they could be next. Continue reading →
To have the inner strength to stand by one’s convictions and act in accordance with those beliefs, especially in spite of criticism…that’s the definition of courage. And those with courage act in defiance of any inner fear of reprisal they might have for they put others before themselves.
I think our Founder’s expected our leaders to be men of courage, especially when attending to ‘the people’s business.’ How disappointed they would be if they saw the Republicans of today cowering in fear before the man, who on Tuesday night, declared himself to be America’s first king…NO…dictator is more like it…for when Barack HUSSEIN Obama basically rendered Congress politically impotent by saying he will bypass them and do what he wants to do…he NOT only trampled on the Constitution, he totally rendered it null and void in his mind.

Then Sen. Obama receives a briefing on Iraq from Gen. David Petraeus in 2008. (DOD)
Iraq’s slide back into chaos has its roots in 2011 when the last U.S. soldiers left the country. The Obama Administration and the government of Iraqi Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki had been engaged in months of negotiations in an attempt to reach a new status of forces agreement that would allow American soldiers to remain in Iraq to help support government forces. (The Bush Administration had signed a status of forces agreement that required U.S. combat troops to leave Iraq by Dec. 31, 2011.) When these talks failed, the stage was set for President Obama to fulfill his campaign promise to remove U.S. forces and end the war in Iraq.
Unfortunately, as pointed out by the Atlanta Conservative Examiner, it was much easier to remove U.S. troops than to end the war. President Obama’s assumption was that American forces were the cause of the fighting in Iraq and that if American forces were removed, the war would end. That turned out not to be the case, partly because of Iran.
