OMG, How Dumb Is This Administration! (Act II)

Published by at 8:53 am under All General Discussions

I first asked the question how dumb is this bungling administration when it exposed to our enemies in Pakistan and Afghanistan what specifically was working best.

That was only a few days ago, but now I have to ask it again:

EXCLUSIVE: Obama agrees to keep Israel’s nukes secret

President Obama has reaffirmed a 4-decade-old secret understanding that has allowed Israel to keep a nuclear arsenal without opening it to international inspections, three officials familiar with the understanding said.

The officials, who spoke on the condition that they not be named because they were discussing private conversations, said Mr. Obama pledged to maintain the agreement when he first hosted Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu at the White House in May.

Look, I know it is almost an open secret, but I am without words in the face of such idiocy. The Oabam administration promised to keep Israeli’s nuclear capabilities secret, then alerted the news media to the agreement.

For what purpose? Shore up their support with the Jewish voters or Israeli lobby? Show how savvy they are in international matters?

Are they that dumb, or do they think we are that dumb to think  we few 100+ million are being quietly let in on the big secret?

    This confirms my issue with respect to how they will handle classified information. Obama revealed the Qom facility and this.

    I knew that Obama would not be able to handle classified information; therefore, he should never have received security clearance by default.

    The Americans did not understand this part and they had better understand the importance of the character of a potential candidate. The oratory skills, charisma, and Hollywood starness seem to be the ONLY criteria for today’s US president.

    Little did they appreciate Bush’s character, principles, and ideology. Bush was so crucified and vilified by his enemies and critics that destroyed him towards the end. And they won’t for a long time.

    Obama’s poll numbers have to drop after yesterday’s loss.

    Crosspatch, I also meant that people have lost their incentives to run their businesses, both old and new.

    The tea party movement is going to have to make a dent into the elite party lines of both parties to take back what they want.

    Take a look at this Gallup poll.


    This is a strange poll…

    U.S. Jews Lead Other Religious Groups in Support of Obama.

    But hotair noticed something else.

    Gulp: Strongest Obama supporters among faith-related groups are … atheists

    I have quite a few Jewish friends and acquaintances, always have, although I am not Jewish myself. We should always make a distinction between the Orthodox and modern Orthodox who are the strongest supporters of Isreal and who take not only their religion very seriously but who also take international relations and the fate of Israel very seriously. There are many in this country, although they probably only represent about a third of those who call themselves Jewish here. (And no, modern Orthodox do not wear their hair funny)

    Then there are the Reformed Jews, and I say this seriously – the modern Reform movement (a majority of American Jews) believes in nothing at all. They have no serious theology, and for this group Judaism is a culture that they are born into, not a serious theological belief system. It’s not really a joke to say that the only scriptures which the Reformed group considers Holy are the New York Times. This group encompasses almost *all* of the well known Hollywood directors and writers, and it shows in their work. In all honesty, Liberalism is this group’s only true religion now – which is why those like Susan Estrich cansay they’ll cut their support for Israel before they’ll stop supporting Democrats. That’s why this group will be among the last die-hards to let go; *this* is now their new religion. (and the religion of global warming fits right in perfectly)

    Woody Allen once made the perfect statement of Reformed Jewish beliefs, and although it’s a joke realize that it’s also very true for him and those like him:

    Allen, talking to his psychiatrist: “And I have these incredible feelings of guilt, all the time, I can’t stop thinking about it!!”

    Psychiatrist: “But why would you feel guilty? You haven’t done anything, and you don’t even believe in God.”

    Allen: “I know, I know, and I feel so guilty about it!!!”

    Reformed Judaism in a nutshell.

    Just to add, that depiction of modern Judaism was given to me by my Orthodox friends, who were very serious when they described it to me.

  5. lurker9876 says:

    So the reformed Jews are willing to let Israel be wiped off the map?

    There are many left-wings, including non-Jews, that are willing to let Israel to, too and they don’t want USA to help Israel anymore.

    So they lack moral compass? They took Rousseau way too seriously? That natural rights to them means going back to the wilderness?

    I am Jewish. My parents went through WW2, my mother was a hidden child and lost both my grandparents in a concentration camp. My father was a freedom fighter at the age of 9 and his father was killed by the brownshirts in 1939 in Brussels, Belguim.
    We live here in South Florida where 90% of the Jews are far far left Democrats. In the words of my 79 year old father, ” if Hitler was running and had a (D) in the back of his name these people would vote him in.” It is a reality, that unless you are a conservative orthodox Jew or had family that went through Hitler’s exterminating plan, that the Jews down here believe first in the Democratic Party as their religion and Judasim second.

    Hey folks, something REALLY fishy is going on in Montana. The original site with the details is swamped so I am going to cut/paste some stuff. This is really weird:

    American Police Force, a little known company which claims to specialize in training military and security forces overseas, has seemingly taken control of a $27 million, never-used jail, and a rural Montana town’s nonexistent police force.

    After arriving in this tiny city with three Mercedes SUVs marked with the logo of a police department that has never existed, representatives of the obscure California security company said preparations were under way to take over Hardin’s jail, which has no prisoners.

    AFP’s group’s website boasts that they “successfully provided assistance in training foreign military organizations in combating transnational terrorism” and claims that it’s “recognized as one of the top security and investigation forces in the world.” Too bad no one’s ever heard of them — not even the U.S. government, a group with which AFP claims to have worked.

    Their lawyer, Maziar Mafi, a malpractice expert how was hired a month ago, offers few details, other than that it’s a satellite of a larger security firm.

    Are they preparing to move Gitmo detainees to Montana?

    Is this something else completely?

    Maziar Mafi is an Iranian name. Why would an Iranian expat and medical malpractice attorney, working with a security firm nobody ever heard of, be taking over a jail in Montana?

    His recent political contributions show him to be a lefty.

    And there’s more at the San Jose Mercury.

    Re: Reformed Jews. This is mind-boggling.

    CP, That’s not too good. Should keep an eye out.

    Saw another post on that weird American Police force – what’s with that weird Serbian coat of arms they’re using as their logo? Not to mention that the double eagle is the old family emblem of the Romanoffs. Serbian/Russian mafia behind it, maybe? Something about that whole deal is just not right.

    If you announce you are going to support keeping something secret…..is it still secret? Riddle me that, Obama.
