Obama~Over Hyped, Over Promised and Always Late

In private industry if you sell a product there are a few imperatives.
First, never ever lie to your client, or present a product that will not perform, or meet their requirements, or is illegal.  Businesses have an expectation that products goods and services will be delivered in a timely fashion agreed upon usually in advance of placing the order and in many instances have penalties to the final price if deadlines are not met.

Never publicly embarrass your client.

Never be late.  Never miss an appointment.  Never take too long to respond to your customers needs and concerns.  Call them as soon as possible when you receive a message.  Your clients time and money are an asset (your accounts receivable) to your employer or to you, if you are self employed.

Once you have broken a clients trust you will never fully regain it.

President Obama is guilty of all of these things, he has obsfucated his agenda, lied to the American Public, is not timely in his response to American hardship, refuses to accept his failed economic policies, has been rude to our allies and friendly to our enemies.  Obama has broken trust with the American voting public.

When Obama was elected millions of Americans voted altruistically for Obama to prove that this nation could and would vote for and elect a black man.

While Obama's carefully planned election won an electoral landslide the popular vote was not as narrow as the electoral college would indicate. His mandate is not as broad as the Mainstream media would lead the average voter to believe. 

The warnings signs of what an Obama Administration would promote as policy and agenda were there, but you had to work hard to find them. 

The mainstream media were so stricken by the 'charm' of Obama that they failed to fully vetted Obama's ideas, his history, policies and Obama's Post Modern Agenda American breaking ideas represented by Obama. 

This site has a review of the Obama Agenda and just how far his Republic breaking policies have evolved. Depending on your political biases this list will either have you dancing in your living room or terrified at the prospect of just how far this Post Modern American President's Agenda has taken our nation.

Obama has buried this nation in debt, and red tape. The Agendas that Obama was not  able to push through a willing 111th Congress were instead put into effect by Executive Orders. His most recent Executive order gives children of illegal immigrants college educatons.

Policy written by Cabinet Officers, from the Department of Health and Human Services, Sebeliuos has given over1400 waivers to allies and unions from the Health care bill.  Did you get one?

Ken Salazar has cancelled drilling leases and has placed many sites off limits in his restrictions on drillling and use of our natural resources, and Lisa Jackson, head of the EPA, is busy finding ways to limit drilling for oil and coal generated electricity, (causing the closings of 5 West Virgina coal burning plants), has turned off water to farmers in the San Juaquin Valley in CA, (causing their farms to go fallow and financial ruin). Steven Chu at the Department of energy, forcing a green agenda, and encouraging skyrocketing fuel and energy prices and his ridiculous position of all cars and roofs being white.  The new head of Financial regulations is writing policy that we will not discover until a few years into the future.

One after another cabinet officer is writing and creating red tape that interferes American freedom.  There are 34 very busy CZARS, writing hidden policy in offices, reporting only to Obama, who are outside of Congressional Oversight. Who can guess or imagine what vile freedom crippling policy these unregulated bureaucrats have written. Cabinet Secretaries and CZARS have permanently or temporarily made Obama's Agenda a part of our National Policy.

Obama has yet to produce a budget in 790 days and his singular latest effort failed in the Senate by a vote of 97 nays - to 0 yays.

In Obama's first Inauguration speech he promised a more transparent and open government, that bills would be placed on line for public view, he promised to change the tone and rhetoric in Washington DC. That never happened,   Republicans in the 111th Congress under the leadership of Nancy Pelosi were locked out of every piece of major legislation.  So far, things have deteriorated and the Democrats continue Obama's lead to obsfucate and delay policies that would improve our economy. 

During many national disasters since Obama's election, the ice storm in Kentucky in his first year, (never visited the state of Kentucky), the 500 year flood in Tennessee, (never visted Tennessee) and it took Obama over twenty one days to acknowledge the, and when the BP Gulf Oil Spill happened once again it was twelve or 14 days Obama reluctantly drug his feet to before he responded.  Under Obama's direction FEMA picks and chooses who will get Federal aid after floods, tornadoes, wildfires, and other emergencies.
Obama has directed Eric Holder US AG to file suit against Arizona and his Administration has encouraged 11 Central and South American nations to file Amicus briefs over SB1070, and now the state of Georgia for a similar immigration bill and Oklahoma cannot be far behind in receiving the same activity for trying to protect their state from unenforced US Coded Immigration laws on the books. Under the direction of Obama AG Eric Holder has decided not to prosecute voter intimidation by the New Black Panther Party, the trial for the attackers of the USS Cole remains on hold, and Holder is still seeking a venue to try military combatants in US Civilian Court.

Under the Obama Administration our borders are more porous, and Norton the Director of ICE is less than energetic about capturing or deporting illegal aliens who have broken US coded Immigration laws and statutes. The TSA under Janet Napalitano's direction has ever more invasive procedures flying Americans must endure to board a plane.  Under the Obama Administration the ATF conducted "Fast and Furious" an entrapment to sell guns to Mexican cartels, which have cost the life of one if not more Border Agent.

Obama has been rude to allies, Netanyahu in particular, the Dahli Lama, the Queen of England, (not just once but twice), and has embraced thugs.  We voted for Libya to be on the UN Human Rights Commission before we decided to wage war against Gdaffi.  Obama has demanded that Israel accept pre-1967 borders for peace with Palestine, yet is willing to meet Ahmedinnejab with no pre-conditions.  Was mute while hundreds of thousands packed the streets in Teheran during the green revolution, and later supported the mobs fueled by the Muslim Brotherhood in Cairo and undermined Mubarek.

We as Conservatives, must be resolved that we will not split our vote, and give any third party candidates in the coming Presidential elections a vote.  We must be resolved to be active in the voting process, from working with our local county election boards to clean up voter rolls, and registering voters, educating ourselves and our neighbors to the threat Obama and his Post Modern Agenda is to our Republic and rally all we can to vote against a man that wants to 'fundamentally transform the' "more perfect union" in 1776

This is what is at stake. Our Nation.

Embracing Dhimmitude DOD And Nidal Hassan

What person in their right mind would be able in the furthest stretches of reality call someone who without cause in a premeditated attack screaming Alua Akbar who shot and murdered 12 unarmed miltary personnel and 1 civilian,  and  wounding 32 others a Conscientious Objector?

Has our Department of defense succumbed to the vile practice of  political correctness found in dhimmitude, and accepted the tenants of sharia? 

A Conscientious Objector as defined  "is one who on the basis of religious or moral principles refuses to bear arms or participate in military service."

It cerainly appears that once again the justice for Hasan's viticms and thier families has been brought to a slow crawl in the prosecution of Major Nidal Hasan, the lone defendant in the murderous attacks of  military and civilian innocents on November the 5th November 2009.  And it appears that the Department of Defense has given this lawbreaker a dream motive to use an insanity plea and an excuse for his actions.

According to  infromation in this article from Pajama's Media , the Department of Defense has a new policy: "A shocking decision made by the secretary of the Army last month — in the case of an U.S. Army soldier with the 101st Airborne at Fort Campbell who refused to deploy to Afghanistan claiming that Islamic law prevented him from killing other Muslims — vindicates Fort Hood killer Major Nidal Hasan. He made identical claims and threatened that “adverse events” would occur if military officials didn’t accede to shariah principles."  DoD has determined that these radicalized Muslims can after the fact claim being conscientious objectors.

Nidal Hasan in no way fits this definition.

Major Nidal Hassan used a handgun known as a 'cop killer'. According to reports in Texas, he was clean shaven on the infamous day of the shooting and was screaming Alua Akbar as he fired repeatedly at unarmed personel and civilians.  He used a  FN Herstal 5.7 tactical pistol, a semi-automatic handgun, which is called a 'Cop Killer' in his infamous attack on unarmed miltary (Armed Forces personnel are forbidden to carry weapons on base (loaded or unloaded by military code for military personnel) and likewise civilian personnel at Fort Hood.  The gun was legally purchased.

Nidal Hasan was selected as a member of the transition   team for the Obama Administration, "The task force was not officially affiliated with the White House. It was a project of the Homeland Security Policy Institute, an independent thinktank housed at George Washington University, aimed at drafting policy recommendations for the incoming Obama administration team.

Further it was known that Nidal Hasan had email exchanges with known terrorist and jihadi promoter Al Alaki in Yemen "...No less worrisome is the report's account of the FBI's handling of the Hasan case. Here was an Muslim-American in the U.S. military who was in direct email contact with Yemen-based cleric Anwar al-Awlaki—someone well known in counterterrorism circles as being the intellectual godfather of previous domestic terrorism plots—but given only the most cursory of reviews by the FBI. How and why that happened is the meat of the senators' report..."

In a most unflattering special report, made by Joseph I. Lieberman, Chairman and Susan M. Collins, Ranking Members, U.S. Senate Committee on Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs

Washington D.C. 20510, February 2011called A TICKING TIME BOMB , published February 3, 2011, said, "...Our basic conclusion is as follows: Although neither DoD nor the FBI had specific information concerning the time, place, or nature of the attack, they collectively had sufficient information to have detected Hasan's radicalization to violent Islamist extremism but failed both to understand and to act on it. Our investigation found specific and systemic failures in the government's handling of the Hasan case and raises additional concerns about what may be broader systemic issues.

Both the FB I and DoD possessed information indicating Hasan's radicalization to   violent Islamist extremism. And, to the FBI's credit, it flagged Hasan from among the chaff of intelligence collection for additional scrutiny. However, the FBI and DoD together failed to recognize and to link the information that they possessed about Hasan:

( I) Hasan was a military officer who lived under a regimented system with strict officership and security standards, standards which his behavior during his military medical training violated; and

(2) the government had [REDACTED] communications from Hasan to a suspected terrorist, [REDACTED], who was involved in anti American activities and the subject of an unrelated FBI terrorism investigation. This individual will be referred to as the "Suspected Terrorist" in this report.

Although both the public and the private signs of Hasan's radicalizat ion to violent
Islamist extremism while on active duty were known to government officials, a string of failures prevented these officials from intervening against him prior to the attack.

• Evidence of Hasan's radicalization to violent Islamist extremism was on full display to his superiors and colleagues during his military medical training. An instructor and a colleague each referred to Hasan as a "ticking time bomb." Not only was no action taken to discipline or discharge him, but also his Officer Evaluation Reports sanitized his obsession with violent Islamist extremism into praiseworthy research on counterterrorism.

• FB I Joint Terrorism Task Forces (JTfFs) are units in FBI field offices that conduct
counterterrorism investigations and are staffed by FBI agents and employees from other federal, state, and local agencies. A JTTF learned that Hasan was communicating with the Suspected Terrorist, flagged Hasan's initial [REDACTED] communications for further review, and passed them to a second JTTF for an inquiry. However, the ensuing inquiry failed to identify the totality of Hasan's communications and to inform Hasan's military chain of command and Army security officials of the fact that he was communicating with a suspected violent Islamist extremist - a shocking course of conduct for a U.S. military officer. Instead, the JTTF inquiry relied on Hasan's erroneous Officer Evaluation Reports and ultimately dismissed his communications as legitimate research.

• The JTTF that had reviewed the initial [REDACTED] communications di smissed the second JTTF's work as "slim" but eventually dropped the matter rather than cause a bureaucratic confrontation. The JTTFs now even dispute the extent to which they were in contact with each other in this case. Nonetheless, the JTTFs never raised the dispute to FBI headquarters for resolution, and entities in FBI headquarters responsible for coordination among field offices never acted. As a result, the FBI's inquiry into Hasan ended prematurely.

As noted, DoD possessed compelling evidence that Hasan embraced views so extreme that it should have disciplined him or discharged him from the military, but DoD failed to take action against him. Indeed, a number of policies on commanders' authority, extremism, and personnel gave supervisors in his chain of command the authority to take such actions. It is clear from this failure that DoD lacks the institutional culture, through updated policies and training, sufficient to inform commanders and all levels of service members how to identify radicalization to violent Islamist extremism and to distinguish this ideology from the peaceful practice of Islam.

* The redactions in this report were required by the Intelligence Community pursuant to Executive Branch classificalion policies and are the result of intensive negotiations spanning three months. We take issue with the extent of these redactions, some of which we believe are unjustified, but we have consented to them in order to produce this report in a timely manner."

Here is a list of those innocent heroes, military and civilian who were going about their duties and business and whose lives were taken by Nidal Hasan on a beautiful clear fall day at Fort Hood Texas, November 5, 2009.

Michael Grant Cahill, 62, Civilian Physician Assitant, Spokane, Washington

Libardo Eduardo Caraveo, 53, Major, Woodbridge Virginia

Justin Michael DeCrow, 32, Staff Sergeant, Plymouth, Indiana

John P. Gaffaney, 56, Captain, Serra Mesa, California

Frederick Greene, 29, Mountain City, Tennessee

Jason Dean Hunt, 22, Specialist, Tipton, Oklahoma

Amy Sue Krueger, 29, Staff Sergeant, Kiel, Wisconsin

Aaron Thomas Nemelka, 19, Private First Class, West Jordan, Utah

Michael S. Pearson, 22, Private First Class, Bolingbrook, Illinois

Russell Gilbert Seager, 51, Captain, Racine, Wisconsin

Francheska Velez, 21, Pirvate First Class, Chicago, Illionis

*Was pregnant when she was shot and murdered.

Juanita L. Warman, 55, Lieutenant Colonel, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Kham See Xiong, 23, Private First Class, Saint Paul, Minnesta

32 others were wounded.

Will the families and loved ones and commrades in arms of the deceased and 32 wounded be waiting for justice like those of the USS Cole for 10 years?

From my perspective it is too bad that the two police officers that shot and wounded Nidal Hasan did not shoot him dead. Since this will be a military court martial, who knows when Nidal Hasan will have his day in Military court.

If ever there was a candidate for a firing squad, it is surely Major Nidal Hasan.
