Obama Inc. Bows To North Korean Threats, Claims It Isn’t Bowing To North Korean Threats

 

 

 

 

” Obama Inc. is absolutely not backing down by cancelling a missile launch. That would be crazy. They’re just scrapping the missile launch to ease tensions which is nothing at all like backing down.

The decision to delay critical U.S missile tests is not a sign that the White House is bowing to North Korea’s “bellicose rhetoric,” a top administration official said Sunday.

During an appearance on “Fox News Sunday,” senior Obama adviser Dan Pfeiffer said the decision was “absolutely not” a retreat after Pyongyang’s recent aggressive actions against the U.S. and its allies in the Western Pacific.”

Senate Democrats Talk 2014, Immigration and Guns at Retreat

 

 

” “It [was all about] the 2014 line up, just going through it,” said Sen. Tom Udallof New Mexico, who noted that the discussion was led by new Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee Chairman Michael Bennet of Colorado.

Udall said that the Democrats in Annapolis, Md., for the retreat will also discuss sequestration, immigration and ways to reduce gun violence before wrapping up on Wednesday.”

 

   Talking about everything that will maintain their power but nothing on what they are actually  being paid for . Nary a word spoken of passing a budget … You do remember what a budget is don’t you Senators ?

After the Fall: What Do You Do When You Conclude America Is (Temporarily or Permanently) Kaput?

 

 

 

 

” If we reach the following highly unpleasant conclusion, what are the implications?

The United States has taken a political turn which, at least for the next four years, will guarantee that it does not play the role of a great power mindful of and willing to protect its own true interests, to support its allies, and to combat its real foes. On the contrary, through inaction or active effort the leadership of America will take counterproductive actions that achieve the opposite result. And there are certain factors — radical ideological hegemony, a weak economy and growing debt, structural social changes, the weakness and disorganization of the opposition — that may make this situation regarding America’s international behavior and policies a long-term, partly irreversible condition. In other words, we don’t know if America is finished as the world’s leading power, but we do know that it will not have leadership and certainly not leadership in a good direction for a while and perhaps will never fully recover.

So what do those outside the United States do to face this situation? (Please note that I am speaking here only of U.S. foreign policy and just remarking on the domestic situation.)

There are those readers who would contest the accuracy of this statement. They will say that Barack Obama is a great president, or at least a decent one, and there is no big prob. lem regarding U.S. foreign policy at all. In fact, he and his team, which now includes Secretary of State-designate John Kerry, will be just fine, or at least okay. They will make the point — valid, but irrelevant — that the United States doesn’t control everything in the world . “
