OBAMA IS IN OVER HIS HEAD

The good news is that Obama’s speech last night was only 16 minutes long.  It didn't cause me to miss part of the Diamonbacks' game.  The good news also is that it was worthless in that it was basically a rehash of what we have been reading for the past few days.  I guess that when a president knows he will embarrassingly go down in flames if Congress votes on his measure, he may as well do 16 minutes of repetition and then thankfully disappear.

It was more of the same:  “No boots on the ground” has become one of Obama’s favorite expressions even though having never served in the military, he probably wouldn’t know a boot if he saw one.

Then there were the impassioned words about how horrible sarin gas is and how inhumane it is to kill people, especially children, through its use.  We know those things but when a president says it with a glint of moisture in his eye, it is supposed to have more effect on his followers.

After he finished, one reporter (Martha Radatz of ABC News) commented:  “It is highly unlikely that in the coming weeks or even months there will be a military strike in Syria … if ever.”

Howard Kurtz of Fox News said:  “It was more of a status report than a call to action, more justification than inspiration.

Fox’s Charles Krauthammer saw the Obama message as “we will do this if we have to,” but put it “on the back burner.”

CNN’s John King said he had never seen a president “say I’m trying to prepare you for a Plan B.”

CBS’s Bob Schieffer hinted at a bit of face-saving, because “he was almost certainly going to lose this vote” on Capitol Hill.

It’s as though Obama is heaving a sigh of relief now that Putin is adding his two cents worth.  I can see him saying, “Phew!  I’m glad that’s over.  I’m going outside for a smoke.  Call me when Vladimir calls to give me his instructions.”

“What we watched:...

Obama taking (in his words) his full court press before the nation push for action, while simultaneously asking congress to delay any vote on taking action???

What really happened:...

A desperate man trying to convince the world he has the faintest idea of what in the hell he’s doing”

Larry Rupp said...

What truly comical about it was the lead-off statement wherein he takes credit for bringing the Russians to the table and preventing a more bellicose situation.

PROUD,

What a useless goddam loser the guy is. Give me the old days when Reagan would have the press in for his news conferences. I can still see Helen Thomas sitting in the front row with that acid look on her face.

Jim McAllister said...

Larry,

One thing we can always count on is O taking credit for something he didn't do. He is about a foot taller than Putin and I'll bet Vlad could take him down in about 10 seconds.

From the reaction of the liberal press, I think they may be catching on.

Jim, I didn't watch Obama's speech because there was more entertaining things to watch on tv.

Time to stick a fork in the D-Backs because they're done.

As a long time Dodger fan it's kinda fun to see the D-Backs at 13 1/2 games back.

Speaking of Arizona sports teams I see the Cardinals are off to a great start this season.

Rick Kepple said...

I didn't see the speech.

I stand by my research. It's accurate information. It'll drive you nuts just reading all those stories and reports.

It's a game, Jimmy. Everything we are seeing is just part of a great big counterintelligence game and if you check the stories of the other countries, they don't correspond.

I was told to stop stressing about this. Stop researching it. I'd be committed if I didn't stop looking for information.

I'm to focus on SN, music and filmmaking. No more freelance military intelligence.

Twenty two veterans take their lives every day. I think that's why.

I'll go along with Dennis Miller on that.

Don't you hate it when you publish something, and then you find the mistakes? Second sentence. Edyting is hard work sometimes. Yup.

A little something for the chain of events so that maybe the government finally learns.

Jimmy's right. Assad is way over Obama's head. Let Russia take this one.

Rick Kepple said...

Hey Jimmy, I've been busting my butt to learn the new programs. The other program had everything with it, but this one uses a few different programs for various special effects.

A St. Louis band booked the studio for Saturday for a Green Screen music video.

Now I'm feeling like I'm in over my head. I mean, recording it is easy. Creating the videos isn't like recording the song. Heck, one little bitty video can take days to develop into a product, depending on the fx they want.

Pevie, mentor to high level peoples and former political strategist , Hicks said...


Are you sure they want to book a studio?

Maybe they want to store a lawn mower, wheelbarrow, and a donkey there, I mean,

It's just a tiny old, BARN!(actually as barn's go, this one is more of a shed)

Rick Kepple said...

Pevie, lots of people have volunteered to turn the "shed" into a nice studio.

One Nashville music star said that he's been in TV stations that are smaller. Another famous music star said that it doesn't matter anymore.

The fact is, there's a whole bunch of music stars coming tomorrow. They've played all over the world and they're wanting a Green Screen video done by LJM.

It's Karma. SN Rules. Jesus. Sure ain't some goddess!

Rick Kepple said...

After today, I think I'm staying in film. SN can have the music industry and I remember now why I went into freelance writing.

But video is a better way to tell stories.

Jimmy, I think it's just a wonderful thing that Obama has accepted Russia's peace plan. It's precious. It's like outsourcing politics.

Jimmy, c'mon up and visit. We'll make a scene for a movie. We'll use it somehow.

Good morning, Jimmy. You seem so lonely. No one comments on your blog.

I watched SN with lady Antebellum for a few minutes on TV on break in the studio. It's on the roommate's DVR, so I'll watch it some other time.

The sound engineer and I jammed a bit last night. I'm getting pretty good on bass. I love guitar, but it's much tougher.

Got some nice video, but I need the right footage of a beautiful woman. I think I might be able to create one on the computer.

Told you before, Jimmy. Ignoring people only works on women. Silly women. REAL men don't care.

Rick Kepple said...

Just got an email.

Apparently, we're going to start working with SN' music label with occasional projects.

Everyone's moved to the new blog, they decided to leave this one for you to talk to yourself.

Enjoy!

Rick Kepple said...

Well, Mike was given his chance to rant and he didn't. Maybe he needs two fingers of something for courage.

The shooters at the Naval yard are very possibly a three-man team. If these are terrorists like 9/11, where are the others?

And a Black man confirmed that one shooter is a tall Black man. I am not even touching that further in comment. That's what Mikey is for.

Forget what I said about a music label working with us. It's not true. Too much cornbread.

Rick Kepple said...

Oh Jim, I'll mind my manners.

Mike, I have Asperger's Syndrome and I am still learning about me without control. I'm actually not comfortable with letting it all hang out.

I actually am excited to see how far I can go, but I do insult a lot of people who probably don't deserve it.

I am under a lot of pressure right now and it's only going to get worse. I've been trying meditation and that seems to help.

Yes, I appreciate everything that people try to teach me here.

SN understands me, but it took her years and I do call her my friend.

My late wife understood me best. She would tell me if people were kidding. She taught me that people really do like the things that I create. I'm extremely gifted and creative, brilliant too, but unbelievably ...

DUMB AS A ROCK!

I think that Middy finally figured me out. And yeah, I appreciate what he's tried to teach me too. Yep, I have no doubt that Middy is my angel, more than most.

I read the memo that got me a chance and I don't remember writing it. The fact is that I don't remember all the stories and photos that I've sold. Most of the time, I just think that I'm normal, but I'm not. I know that I'm weird and Jim tolerates me.

So my apologies, Mike. It's not you, but rather, it's me.

Mike Slater said...

Jim, ammo is getting harder to find. Popular handgun ammo like .380, .38. 9MM and .357 is really scarce. Even some rifle ammo is hard to come by.

I like to go to the shooting range from time to time but haven't lately because I don't want to use up all my ammo.

My son's a cop so he has an easier time finding ammo. If fact he got me a box of .380 hollow points for my birthday.

The best place to look for ammo is WalMart or Cabela's.

Rick Kepple said...

Anyway, Lana is here. Telling me to stop OCDing. I have a tendency to do that, but put me on the right topic and I complete the mission.

Sorry Middy. You've done a lot for me and I've been mean to you. So I shall be better. So Middy was trying to protect me to get me to get off the Internet. Okay.

And thanks for the recommendation, Middy. That was nice. I was horribly stressed and the numbers were horrible. Nothing was going right, so that was cool.

And shut up about .. Right. Got it.

Unfortunately, THAT LEAVES JUST, YOU.

Mike,

I have two full boxes of .38 shells which is probably plenty, at least for now. If I shoot that pistol one round a year, it is a big event. I just want to be sure that when or if the day comes when I need to use it, I have the fire power.

Welcome to the 21st century, huh? I'm glad they killed that idiot in Washington or else we would have another Ft. Hood situation where the guy gets tried years after the fact. Gee, he was guilty; now we'll feed him for another 10 years.

Well Jim the world is in a hellava mess.
I just looked at the job cuts page and it looks like things are starting to fall apart.

My son has been working in north Boulder on a flood job, it is a mess up there- the Denver Post has a great website with videos on the destruction.

http://www.denverpost.com/news/ci_24102927/colorado-flood-jamestown-residents-were-their-brothers-keepers

I have stayed in Jamestown a few times and it doesn't look like it will recover, Estes Park is cut off as far as I know and they haven't gotten a good grasp on the casualties yet.
And that might be the cleanest shirt news wise in the laundry basket.
Obama has to wage war, the Saudi's own him and are pressuring the issue, he doesn't make these decisions himself, he is a middle management man after all.
The Saudi's are pushing this thing and Russia doesn't like it a bit and is threatening to take Saudi out of the oil business by glassing over a couple of cities.
..and they might do it.
Can't argue with the weather tho can we?

Rick Kepple said...

"Ask Lana what she thinks of you doing this to yourself 24/7/365?"

Oh that's easy. She reminds me to obsess only about money making projects.

"Obama has to wage war, the Saudi's own him and are pressuring the issue, he doesn't make these decisions himself, he is a middle management man after all."

He's right, Jimmy.

Hey Middy, remember Obama's position on Black folks who are singled out for prison?

Naval yard. Black. Watch him be found out to be a new convert to Islam.

Jim McAllister said...

Middy,

Plus we have the sequester and govt. shutdown possibility and the navy yard debacle.

Gee, what a coincidence; it's all happening under Obama, the great savior. You're right; he is a middle man. I hope the Reps stick to their guns on Obamacare.

Good point on the shooter:

Going to be hard to spin this one on evil black guns since he killed and took some of them from the fat asses in charge of security.

Way too many in Federal LE today are either fat dykes or affirmative action hires.- but I repeat myself, it seems since 2008 they have been picking up the rejects from the failed TSA hiring program.

..another gun free shooting gallery, another troubled black youth with a history of gun violence and I imagine you will find out he was at some point on psychotropic meds.

.."He said he was hearing voices, he was detached from reality at certain points. He had sought treatment a number of times at a number of places and he was also frustrated there.
He claimed he wasn't getting his full VA benefits," FBI assistant director John Miller said.
(sound familiar?)

I would bet money on his attraction to the religion of peace; the dirty little secret is Federal hiring and contracting is weighted heavily in favor of hiring minorities and queers, yet once again I repeat myself..
A workplace murderer is the epitome a hiring a minority so once again they have exceeded their hiring expectations.

What's worse yesterday represents another diversion from the real criminality that occurs each day in Hell DC.
Until Congress is arrested and hanged for their worse crimes against America than what this guy represents I see yesterday as a relative uneventful day in the larger viewpoint.

If you drop over to Huffington Post, the libs are beside themselves blaming this shooting on Wayne LaPierre, the NRA, and Right Wing conservatives.

I tried pointing out that the real blame lies with belief and trust in BIG government. This guy had misconduct charges, two arrests involving guns and anger / rage, and a history of mental illness, yet somehow BIG government managed to vet and grant him several high level security clearances.

As you might imagine, my logic didn't go over so well with huff-po readers....

Bill Clinton passed a bill not allowing any possession of firearms on military bases, not even MP's are armed on most.

.."In March 1993, the Army imposed regulations forbidding military personnel from carrying their personal firearms and making it almost impossible for commanders to issue firearms to soldiers in the U.S. for personal protection. For the most part, only military police regularly carry firearms on base, and their presence is stretched thin by high demand for MPs in war zones"..

When you consider that Bill Clinton also sold sensitive guidance systems that now give them the ability to guide their MIRV armed missiles at any target on the US soil to the Communist Chinese for campaign donations makes him a traitor just as much as the traitors we have in the White House and in the Senate.
..white traitors are just as bad as black traitors- something a lot of people seem to forget.

..“We are confronting yet another mass shooting, and today it happened on a military installation in our nation’s capital,” Obama said. “It’s a shooting that targeted our military and civilian personnel. These are men and women who were going to work, doing their job protecting all of us. They’re patriots, and they know the dangers of serving abroad, but today they faced the unimaginable violence that they wouldn’t have expected here at home.”

Patriots my ass, they are just munny grubbing assholes who overwhelmingly voted to keep the status quo in place getting paid many times their worth by a corrupt nepotistic government system.. there was so much overtime blown out the ass yesterday on what can only be considered as another goose chase and these "heros" love it.

Hey, I owe Proud an apology. I figured out just now what he was talking about re: Youtube video URL's. Yeah, I figured out the misunderstanding today. Got it.

Can you believe that the long gun used at the Naval yard turned out to be a shotgun? No AR-15.

Didn't the VP say that shotguns are preferred to AR-15's? No black rifle. It's as Middy said.

midnightsstaff said...

I hope you are sitting down Jim, this is a story ran on CNN on the subject of guns and shootings..

.."The guns James Holmes was charged with using in Aurora were purchased legally. Beyond the presence of a gun, the crimes committed in the movie theater are not at all similar to what happens in the streets of our large cities. And each time a politician or gun-control advocate tries to use these two very different examples interchangeably, the entire conversation and argument are compromised.

This happened after Newtown.

It happened after Aurora.

And it will keep continue to happen until the advocates accept that ridding the country of guns is a hopeless -- and unconstitutional mission -- and that the real goal should be addressing the factors that lead to the various forms of gun violence: factors such as poverty, mental health and failing schools"..
http://www.cnn.com/2013/09/17/opinion/granderson-gun-control-fail/index.html?hpt=hp_bn7

..maybe the liberal left is finally having to admit since this was an Obama supporter that it's the nut pulling the trigger not the gun at fault.
hopefully that is..

..Yeah five long years of stagflation with no improvement in sight now finding out for evidently the first time the Nobel Peace Prize winning "Lightbringer" is getting ready to launch WWIII has to be wearing thin on the patience of those who really believed that a second helping of deep fried Twinkie and another trip to the fun house would actually be good for the nation.

After having watched lessons on Twerking, I'm kind of in awe that women just gave away all the rights they ever had! And the man stands behind them in a highly suggestive manner. It's just disgusting that women of the 70's protested for equal rights so women could behave like that in 2013.

And another part of me just can't seem to stop watching.

G man at his classic best.

Well it appears there is not going to be any tapering going on in the near future- that means the farce continues until it collapses under it's own weight, there are no adults in the room.
What today signals is the Fed (who a lot of people erroneously believe is a political entity of the Federal Government) has no idea how to escape the liquidity trap Fabian economics creates and has no choice any longer.

How long until the inevitable no one knows, but everyone paying attention knows it has to end and the longer it plays the harder the comedown..

A lot of people going to be getting the shotgun in the future, like I said .. debt grows exponentially and the debt will be serviced even if it takes being at a point of a gun.

.."The Federal Reserve System has both private and public components, and was designed to serve the interests of both the general public and private bankers. The result is a structure that is considered unique among central banks. It is also unusual in that an entity outside of the central bank, namely the United States Department of the Treasury, creates the currency used. According to the Board of Governors, the Federal Reserve System "is considered an independent central bank because its monetary policy decisions do not have to be approved by the President or anyone else in the executive or legislative branches of government, it does not receive funding appropriated by the Congress, and the terms of the members of the Board of Governors span multiple presidential and congressional terms"..

they are also getting ready to unveil a new proposal on the health care issue once Obamacare has failed- I hope it works.

They could be made to accept the most flagrant violations of reality, because they never fully grasped the enormity of what was demanded of them, and were not sufficiently interested in public events to notice what was happening. By lack of understanding they remained sane. They simply swallowed everything, and what they swallowed did them no harm, because it left no residue behind, just as a grain of corn will pass undigested through the body of a bird.”
-George Orwell, 1984..

Rick Kepple said...

I believe you are not lying now.

It's the entire reason that I vote! I believe in a candidate even though all the evidence says that they are lying as much, or more than the other guy!

Obama exists because people thought he was the least of two evils. My God!

Why can't we have "American President!" the elimination game of political candidates who will compete once a week and gain the most votes in the end! And they have mentors that are former Presidents. A panel of judges from the media. The Town Hall Game. National Security category and Foreign Relations.

midnightsstaff said...

So how did you arrive at the conclusion I am not lying?

reason can be either inductive or deductive in nature, but what you seem to be relying on with what I say is intuition..
is that correct?

A is equal to B which is greater than C.
C is lesser or greater than A depending on it's value.
..so what is B?..

answer... Red. anything other than that answer is a pure guess.

Not to interrupt the party but can somebody please explain to me the mechanics of how one man can kill 12 people, one after another after another, with a sawed-off shotgun? And in a military establishment no less. Wasn't there even one person in that place that could have taken the shooter out while he was reloading?

Rick Kepple said...

CJ had to ask.

I did a little background on that shooter. Alexis is a recent convert to Buddha. I still say that he went overseas and switched to Islam. Recent converts often turn dangerous.

midnightsstaff said...

The shotgun was just the key.. he used it to take weapons from the security/greeter.

odd thing is a squad of fully armed, trained response swat team was there at the beginning but were not allowed in due to HLS taking charge and waiting for their own agency to respond.
so a few lives might have been saved.
just a typical day in the only gun free al queda stronghold in the world, there were a few other inconsistencies- sort of like with every other recent mass murder complete with the two extra suspects that were not pursued.
sorry libs, no ar was involved except for the one used by the guy that finally took him out after twenty min. or so..

btw.. he was a registered Dem. and voted for the lightbringer...
..that's gotta sting.
Contrary to Piers Morgan and other wing dings no gun has ever killed a person unless it blew up and that's always not it's fault- they just sit there and gather dust on their own.

midnightsstaff said...

Rick... that's the full moon in the air. lol..

midnightsstaff said...

Oh yeah cJ, all military bases are free fire zones just like kindergarden through the sixth year of community college are..
it's shooting fish in a barrel on every base in America.
happened in 93 with Bill Clinton blaming some shooting on the weapon instead of the criminal and getting away with it, so far Bill has quite a few deaths on his hands wouldn't you agree?..

Useful idiot politicians and commies all think alike.

CJinPhoenix said...

So did he kill most of the people with the handguns or the shotgun?

here is a timeline of the gun free shooting gallery incident.

http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2013-09-16/washington-navy-yard-shooting-timeline-and-recap-13-dead-one-suspect-still-sought-qu

Orlowski says the survival chances for all three victims are "very good."

Orlowski also notes that the weapon used to shoot the victims "had to be a semi-automatic because they're talking about gunshots that they heard in rapid succession."

The other potential shooter still at large is an African-American male approximately 50 years old, last seen wearing olive drab clothing -- a possible military uniform -- and in possession of a long gun.

Lanier says there is no information indicating either of the two alleged shooters still at large are military personnel.

Lanier also notes that "multiple" victims are dead inside the Naval Sea Systems Command headquarters building at the Navy Yard, and that there is still a "very active, ongoing" investigation.

"We still don't know all the facts, but we do know that several people have been shot and some have been killed. So we are confronting another mass shooting and it happened on a military installation in our nation's capital," Obama says.

"It's a shooting that targeted our military and civilian personnel. These are men and women who were going to work, doing their jobs protecting all of us. They're patriots and they know the dangers of serving abroad, but today they face the unimaginable violence that they wouldn't have expected here at home."

Obama called for a thorough investigation.

I really didn't follow this too closely.. just another day in the new normal..

CJ Phoenix said...

So I guess that means you do not know what gun(s) he used.

Yeah, I have noticed that there is an amazing lack of detail & media frenzy regarding this incident. I mean, considering the wall-to-wall coverage of every other incident with every detail talked about for days on end & the names of all the victims released within days of the event, vigils & interviews with family members...Tucson, the Colorado theater, Sandy Hook, and, most recently, the Boston Marathon...Compared to those, there is something mysterious about this tragedy. It just isn't adding up.

midnightsstaff said...

Why I keep trying doesn't add up if we're keeping score.

Right now Glo is probably sitting in some Turkish belly dance club sharing a bowl of hash with some guys she just met from Cincy..
nice moon eh?

Actually Cj I am getting bored with all the mass murder drama and ensuing shit storm of lies and misinformation; we aren't getting the whole story and it sure looks to me like the media is deliberately covering up for Big Pharma- if you consider nearly all the outrages has been linked to the pharmaceuticals I listed the other day it seems someone would mention it.

But the media gets big bucks from Pizer and the rest to shill Paxil and Zoloft as nice friendly mood enhancers.

two and two is something I suppose, but we as a nation seem to want to have our cake and eat it too in way too many ways.
Big Pharma is doing more harm to the nation than the mexican cartels if you ask me although both support the status quo politicians so I guess it's a wash unless you happen to be a victim.
and nearly every family I know has a victim of the war on drugs somewhere in it.

Rick, I have known some Buddhists and Hindus and I doubt that was any contributing factor, he simply heard voices and one thing led to another...
He was involved with the outpatient VA mental system, in other words heavily medicated and ignored.
The VA system is another shame of this nation that is ignored yet every Fourth of July we act like the vets are the most important of citizens and then ignore them the rest of the year..
chickens roost.

midnightsstaff said...

Hey Cj this is a pretty good article by Jack Cashill on the subject you were talking about, his thesis is the historically inaccurate "Roots" influenced generation has matured into a sub culture within the black youth that has an intentionally misguided chip on it's shoulder..

It's one of the better reads I have ran across on the subject.
I suppose the article would suggest we have only seen the tip of the iceberg.

If there were ever to get fully behind any conspiracy theory it's that the Democrat party has intentionally marginalized the Black race economically and done much to destroy the Black family in America using it for a pawn.

PROUD said...

Mass shooting in Chicago last night....13 people shot incl a 3 yr old at a midnight basketball game(3 yr old out at 10:30PM? nice parenting)

Nary a single mention of any description of the two suspects in the MSM accounts I have read....Just that they pulled up in a grey car,absolutely no mention of apx age, height, race etc...

Taking bets that when / if caught, both suspects are black...and a child who attends midnight basketball at the ripe ol age of 3, winds up becoming a future gang banger / suspect himself...(he was probably at the game with his 35 yr old grandma)

midnightsstaff said...

Yawn... only 13?- that gun ban is working pretty well, but to be fair it was a Thursday night so like mid week hockey games the numbers weren't up to weekend standards..

Wonder why HLS didn't swarm the area and go door to door seizing weapons.
get back to me Monday after the Hottentots reorganize and even up the score.
(was that insensitive?)

Yep.. Arizona is going to be one of the safe zones when the shtf in the hood- gonna look like a state full of Korean grocery owners.

Rick Kepple said...

I like CJ. She's got good intuition.

I find the Naval shooting highly suspicious too. Violent video games to psychologically program people. Congress agrees.

Back in the early 1990's I had to go to the AT&T school in Chicago for two weeks of training. One of the first things we were told was to not go to the South side of Chicago after dark because it wasn't safe. I guess things haven't changed since then.

midnightsstaff said...

Sure has changed, now you can't go there in the daytime either..

Jim McAllister said...

Pevie,

In Spring of 1956 my dad and I went to Chicago for a weekend. He wanted to go to the horse races at the old Washington Park racetrack while I spent my time at Wrigley Field watching the Cubs.

I remember we stayed at a nice little place on the Southside. What a difference between then and now. We were driving a brand new '56 Chevy black convertible with a white top; a really great little car with "power pack" and stick shift. That SOB would really go!

We parked at the curb in front of where we were staying and had no problems.

Try doing that today! It's sad to see; I used to love Chicago.

Rick Kepple said...

Chicago holds the record for 435 murders in one year, because the mayor cut the police budget.

http://www.businessinsider.com/how-chicago-became-the-deadliest-city-in-america-2012-11?op=1

Gangs have grown in number, the story says.

So I did some more research and there are dozens of stories of law enforcement department budget cuts in various cities.

Simultaneously, the FBI put out a report that gang membership spiked.

Do your research, but CJ's right. The mass murders are all connected by commonalities, but budget cuts do not make people kill. It's just coincidence, even though I would call it encouraging the lawless thugs to do anything they want.

Jim,

He is 'big-time' over his head and we should all be 'big-time' worried. He is the very first president in my memory who has made it on such a colossal run of luck. But how long can we withstand this method of governing in such a dangerous calamitous world? I’m really scared!
