Does Barack Obama believe the bizarre delusion things that he tells “journalists,” which they don’t question?
Why did the media ignore the truth about Matthew Shepard, even though ABC’s Elizabeth Vargas reported it in 2004?
No H8? — Bombshell Book: Matthew Shepard Tortured, Murdered by Gay Lover (Bombshell only because the dino media ignored Elizabeth Vargas’ 2004 reporting that the Official Story of the martyrdom of Matthew Shepard is baloney)
New Details Emerge in Matthew Shepard Murder – ABC News (Here’s the link to Elizabeth Vargas’ story)
Yesterday the Lame Stream Media was all atwitter, in full thrill up leg mode, about the brilliance of our Dear Reader’s skillful handling of the situation in Syria. As usual, their blind, fanatical embrace of the cult of the personality they created around this empty suit blinds them from what just happened; specifically, Putin outsmarted Obama again. Obama, pick up your jock. We’ll unpack it for you on today’s show.
Women are increasingly accepting the fact that when it comes to protecting themselves, firearms are the great equalizer.

Should be fun!
Some of the most zealous supporters of the Obamacare health care scheme were the leaders of large labor unions. Last week, their displeasure over the unintended, but very predictable, consequences of this heinous legislation erupted into public view. Now they want an exemption, making me think “what if you find out that the chef and head waiter at the restaurant don’t eat there?”

Read on to see what we’ve come to, thanks to Barack Obama’s tremendously successful project to “remake” America. On Tuesday night, Barack Obama, who has made clear for his entire adult life that he finds our Constitution extremely deficient because of its enshrinement of the concept of private property, and who has no use for the concept of American exceptionalism, made a convoluted, pointless speech filled with contradictions to attempt to save face after stepping in it big time on the issue of Syria. Ironically, in that speech, and in his bizarre news conferences last week, the Community-Organizer-in-Chief cited that same distasteful American exceptionalism as justification for his plan to do something “unbelievably small” to punish Bashar al-Assad, who supposedly used chemical weapons in his civil war.
The speech was rendered unnecessary because, thanks to another off-the-cuff, off the Prompter comment, this time by Sec. of State John “Lurch” Kerry. Asked by a reporter if there was anything Mr. Assad could do to avoid watching some kindergartens and nursing homes blow up before continuing his systematic killing of his opposition, Mr. Kerry, who by the way not only served in Viet Nam but also enthusiastically gave aid and comfort to our enemies, said that if Mr. Assad would turn over “every single bit” of his chemical weapons to the mythical international community within a week, then no strike, something Kerry said Mr. Assad would never do, of course, adding that “it can’t be done.” The Russians had to be gleeful, thinking “Seriously? Can this really be happening?” I can just see Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov saying “Vlad, this is too good to be true! I think if we play our cards right we can use this to our advantage.” That would have been the understatement of the century. Thanks to Lurch, Russia is now large and in charge on the international stage, and they are feeling their oats. How much? Here’s how much. This morning in the Liberal Death Star aka the New York Times, Vladimir Putin is lecturing us on international law and the dangers of believing in American exceptionalism, concluding with a statement referencing “the Lord’s blessings,” because “God created us equal.”
So to recap, here’s where we are:
Despite all the drama about consequences for Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons, which is still not proven despite what John Kerry keeps repeating endlessly, there have been no consequences and, thanks to the Obama administration’s bungling, there will be no consequences.
A former agent of the Soviet Union’s KGB, an entity known for murder, torture and stuff that makes what has gone on at Gitmo seem like a tea party, who has girl rock bands incarcerated for offensive lyrics, who is also a godless communist is lecturing us on democracy, international law, claiming that we have no right to act unilaterally, but must the consent of U.N., and just for fun, citing God as the cherry on top.
As Bill Keller in the Liberal Death Star states in his piece “Playing Chess with Putin,”
“A president who once seemed sure-footed, combining prudent diplomacy with the occasional bold stroke (killing Osama bin Laden) now stands accused of being, as his Texan predecessor might have put it, all hat and no cattle. He vowed to bring the Benghazi killers to justice, to stand against the return of military rule in Egypt, to arm the rebels in Syria, to enforce a red line against weapons of mass destruction. So far, he has accomplished none of the above.”
The only thing “incredibly small” in this whole embarrassing episode, the follow up the equally embarrassing Snowden affair, is the little man who once strode the world stage as a rock star, now rendered virtually irrelevant. Putin has outsmarted him at every turn. The only Americans who can happy about these developments are Madeleine Albright, who once lamented the fact that the United States was the world’s sole superpower, and Jimmy Carter, who is now first runner up for the title “Most Ineffective, Feckless American President.”
My head is spinning. First there was Barack Obama’s “red line,” which eventually became the world’s red line, or Congress’, but the bottom line on the red line, I think, was that there had to be “consequences,” for using chemical weapons, even if they are “unbelievably small.”
So after several documented uses of chemical weapons by the Assad regime, suddenly his alleged use on August 21 demanded urgent action, but not one that anyone would notice.
Now, the day after Bashar Assad did an interview on American television, on CBS specifically, denying the use or possession of chemical weapons, and issuing a threat against the U.S. and our allies to “expect everything,” he is allowed to continue to stay in power and use the conventional weapons that have killed a hundred thousand Syrians, while agreeing to put those bad chemical weapons under the custody and control of his good friend Vladimir Putin. I’m sure we can trust Vlad and Bashar to turn over all of those CW’s, right?
That whole “Bashar must go” thing is so 2011.
So where exactly are those “consequences,” Dear Reader? Maybe we’ll learn tonight during his TelePrompTer reading.
Not really. There are no consequences, and he’s not going to tell us the truth. As we discussed on this edition of The Teri O’Brien Show, it’s about one thing and one thing only; that is, retaking the House in 2014.
It is ridiculous for John “Lurch” Kerry and other liberals to crow about Obama’s great victory, claiming that it was only the “credible threat of force” that persuaded Assad to give up the chemical weapons he claimed he didn’t have. Everyone on Earth knew that Obama’s Authorization for the Use of Force was DOA, and without it, Obama had no authority to strike, at least arguably. So where is that “credibly threat?” I guess it’s in the same place as those “consequences.”
As you know, on last Sunday’s show, I mentioned that we might do a live chat (and drinking game, of course) during our Dear Reader’s TelePrompTer reading tonight. Do you think we should do that? In view of this latest chess move by Vladimir Putin, is Obama even relevant on this issue?
