MAGA: A Better Idea
Michelle Obama's Mirror ^ | 12-8-2016 | MOTUS

Remember that time Gary Johnson didn’t know what Aleppo was? Turns out he wasn’t alone.

At one time Barry didn’t know Aleppo from Alpo either; presumably before they crossed that hard to identify red line:

"The ability of ISIL to not just mass inside of Syria, but then to initiate major land offensives that took Mosul, for example, that was not on my intelligence radar screen," Obama told Zakaria, using the administration's term for the Islamic State terror group. – CNN

Possibly this oversight was due to his habit of skipping the daily intelligence briefings. Or maybe it’s because he ignored his General’s warning not to withdraw troops from Iraq and fired anyone who warned him about the rise of  ISIS (aka ISIL to Obama).

I know you all remember Marie Harf; former State Department SPOX.

barbie harfTalking points Barbie, Marie Harf edition

Remember when she told us that ISIS was just like you and me; that all they really wanted was a good job?

“We cannot kill our way out of this war. We need in the medium to longer term to go after the root causes that leads people to join these groups, whether it’s lack of opportunity for jobs…”

They probably want an end to the Republicans’ War on Women too.


Marie was also the first one who informed us that ISIS had nothing to do with any religion:

Thursday at the daily briefing, State Department spokeswoman Marie Harf declined to acknowledge ISIS’ declaration of war with the Untied States of America.

When a reporter said,”The reality is ISIS has announced it’s in a war against America,” adding, “Right or wrong that is what they are saying.”

Harf replied, “Well they can say whatever they like. But what I am making clear that is not what ISIS represents and they don’t represent any religion. They are at war with everyone they come in contact with.” – Breitbart

O/T butt I still love the Freudian slip in the original Breitbart article from August 2014: “the Untied States of America.” Seems to support the position Mr. Trump took with  Matt Lauer on yesterday’s Today Show:

"When you say divided states of America, I didn't divide them.They're divided now. I think putting divided is snarky, but again, it's divided. I'm not president yet. So I didn't do anything to divide."

Anyway, back on topic; I’m just thinking that if Barry had listened to his generals instead of his State Department Barbies he might have known what a threat the JV team actually was.

Obama-Syria“Syria, Syria…oh right! That place in the Middle East where we’re arming the ‘moderate’ jihadis!”

All I can say is thank goodness we elected Trump. Now we no longer need to rely exclusively on Putin to put together a strategy for fighting ISIS (or ISIL, as Barry still likes to call them.)

(In August 2014) Big Guy admitted we didn’t have a plan to defeat ISIS/L. Then in February we rolled out the Harf plan of “Jobs for Jihadis” to defeat ISIS. Apparently that didn’t work out so Big Guy was forced to admit last month that  “we don't have a complete strategy yet.”

Since then Barry determined that we don’t actually need a strategy after all since “ideologies are not defeated with guns, they are defeated by better ideas.” So now we’re working on better ideas.MOTUS

I’m pleased to announce we finally came up with one – a better idea that is:

No the guy was a light weight and lazy, pure and simple.

He reminds me of when I was in medical school. There’d be a few guys starting their clinical rotations at the hospital for the first time, going into patient’s room acting like they were doctors, and not correcting the patient when they, the patient, assumed they were doctors and not medical students.

Obama, has been acting like a TV president character since day one. Lapping up the adulation of being the president, but one of the common people when he’d go on various talk shows.

It showed once he got on the public stage what an empty suit he was. Trump is good not to call him out or to make the guy look bad, during the transition, and Obama would be smart not to undermine Trump either.

Trump is a counter puncher. He didn’t go after the union guy, until the union guy sent out a cheap shot at him in the media.

Trump is going out of his way to make nice to everyone, and give the appearance that he’s actually listening.

Take Globaa Warning for example. Let’s assume that coal and car emissions do contribute to it. Let’s just accept that for a few minute for the sake of what I’m about to say.

He meets with Al Gore, and people like Leo Decaprio etc. And he says to them, “Here’s the deal. You want to reduce emission of our coal and cars, yet no other countries have that burden put on them. We can reduce these emissions down to zero. We can do it, but it will cost us. It will cost us jobs, raise costs of products etc.”

Then he’ll pivot, and say, “Instead of putting a mandate or EPA rulling or force our companies to do this, why not we give them incentives to do this? They reduce emissions, they get tax breaks etc. It’s a win win. If they don’t wish to, that’s fine for now, as our skies and waters are the cleanest in the world.”

Trump is much smarter than Obama in so many ways, it stinks.

Trump is not an isolationist that hides behind a big wall. He wants to destroy Isis. He talks with Taiwan. Makes deals with Japanese companies. Basically everything he can do to make America great again

That's pretty much the definition of islam, 'at war with everyone they come in contact with'...
