Obama tells Turks that US is not at war with Islam

ANKARA, Turkey (AP) - Barack Obama, making his first visit to a Muslim nation as president, declared Monday the United States “is not and will never be at war with Islam.”

Urging a greater partnership with the Islamic world in an address to the Turkish parliament, Obama called the country an important ally in many areas, including the fight against terrorism. He devoted much of his speech to urging a greater bond between Americans and Muslims, portraying terrorist groups such as al-Qaida as extremists who do not represent the vast majority of Muslims.

“Let me say this as clearly as I can,” Obama said. “The United States is not and will never be at war with Islam. In fact, our partnership with the Muslim world is critical … in rolling back the violent ideologies that people of all faiths reject.”

The U.S. president is trying to mend fences with a Muslim world that felt it had been blamed by America for the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Obama tells Turks that US is not at war with Islam

Let your imagination take over for just a minute, it’s the afternoon of Dec. 7, 1941 and Obama is the President. Pearl Harbor has been attacked, the Pacific Fleet has be decimated. Several thousand American military personnel lay dead, dying or forever missing.

President Barack Hussein Obama goes on the radio and tells the American people, “We are not, um, at war with the Japanese, uh, people, this was a, ah, terrible mistake. They felt that we had, um, done them an injustice and, uh, this was their way of acting, uh, out on it. We can’t blame the Japanese, um, people, and I am going to speak with the, uh, Japanese ambassador in the morning. I am sure that, uh, we can work this out with, um, sincere negotiations and we will, uh, work to build the trust of, um, our Japanese brothers.” That’s pretty much what he has said to Islam.

“America’s relationship with the Muslim community,” he said, “cannot and will not just be based upon opposition to terrorism. We seek broader engagement based on mutual interest and mutual respect.”

“We will convey our deep appreciation for the Islamic faith, which has done so much over the centuries to shape the world, including in my own country,” he said.

Does anyone have any doubt that Obama is NOT what many of us have wondered about? What many of us have questioned? A Muslim in his heart and a kindred spirit with the Islamic hordes that have vowed to destroy America? The real life version of The Manchurian Candidate?

I have used this analogy before, but it’s worth repeating I believe. Not ALL rattlesnakes are bad guys, there might actually be a few that want to be your buddy, just hang out, eat pizza and watch some football, and would NEVER bite you, but how do we know which one that may be?

We don’t, and that is how it works with Islam. Muslims refuse to stand against those in their ranks that are violent insurgents and terrorists. Until such time as all DECENT Muslims take a bold and obvious stance against those evildoers, I pretty much lump them ALL in the same basket.

And unlike our POTUS, I have no problem with calling a war by it’s real and proper name, WAR

Obama: U.S. should reach out to Taliban

Obama: U.S. should reach out to Taliban

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama says he hopes U.S. troops can identify moderate elements of the Taliban and move them toward reconciliation.

Asked in an interview with The New York Times if the United States is winning in Afghanistan, Obama said “no,” while adding “our troops are doing an extraordinary job in a very difficult situation.”

“But you’ve seen conditions deteriorate over the last couple of years. The Taliban is bolder than it was. I think … in the southern regions of the country, you’re seeing them attack in ways that we have not seen previously,” Obama said in the interview, which was posted Saturday on the Times’ website.

There may be opportunities to reach out to moderates in the Taliban, but the situation in Afghanistan is more complicated than the challenges the American military faced in Iraq, Obama said.

Obama: U.S. should reach out to Taliban

You know, I actually agree with Obama, we really DO need to reach out to the Taliban. Some Springfield M1A’s and Barrett .50′s will reach right out there and kill the sons a bitches really really DEAD! THAT is how we reach out to the Taliban! I don’t think that’s what Obama has in mind though.

I, most every blogger I know, and ALL of my readers, tried our very best to hammer it home long before this socialist bastard ever got elected. He may NOT be a Muslim, but he is most assuredly a Muslim supporter. He is a terrorist and radical Islamist appeaser of the 1st order.

Obama is not going to let the bankruptcy of America be his only accomplishment, oh no, that will NEVER do. Obama is going to give this nation over to radical Islam and China if the events of late are any indication.

Obama has associated with buffoons for so long that even he doesn’t think anything of his Attorney General making one of the most despicable race baiting remarks made by a U.S. official in a long time. Obama gently departs from Holder’s race comment

But Obama thinks Time of crisis can be ‘great opportunity’, now I have to ask, just WHO is the beneficiary of this ‘great opportunity’? The minions of the Obama administration?? The tax cheats that seem to be the only people that Obama wants to have in his administration and on his cabinet? I sure don’t see any ‘great opportunities’ coming my way. Do any of you have a grand tale of ‘great opportunity’ that you’d like to share with the rest of us?

Folks had better hope that Obama doesn’t blow this one, Obama’s to visit Turkey, focus on Iraq, the Turks were a longtime ally of the U.S. and George Bush placed a huge strain on that relationship with his foray into Iraq. The Turks, who don’t particularly like Iraq, cautioned Bush against this move, but true to form, Bush did what HE wanted to do and to hell with the consequences. That’s how we got Obama by the way. Bush and his idiocy made Obama look pretty good to some seriously weak-minded individuals.

I don’t lay full blame on Obama for the financial debacle that he inherited, that was the workings of at least the last 3 administrations put together, but Obama is squarely to blame for this *stimulus* lunacy. The idea that we can spend our way out of a financial crisis is ridiculous.

Obama IS going to try and negotiate with Russia, China, North Korea, any number of Muslim nations, al-Qaida, the Taliban and Hamas. What Obama has no concept of this idea, you do NOT negotiate from a position of weakness, you negotiate from a position of strength, and that is something that HIS administration does NOT represent. To radical Islam, negotiations are merely a sign of weakness!

Every enemy nation on earth is watching, and waiting, looking for that moment in time when they can try to do what no others ever have, take the USA and control it. And why not?? Obama won’t establish a defense, all he will do is petition for negotiations and print more money to throw at the problems.

Barack Obama and the Death of America

Barack Obama and the Death of America

WASHINGTON (AP) - The nation’s unemployment rate bolted to 8.1 percent in February, the highest since late 1983, as cost-cutting employers slashed 651,000 jobs amid a deepening recession. Jobless rate bolts to 8.1 pct., 651,000 jobs lost

- Calling the latest job losses astounding, President Barack Obama said Friday he will not accept a future marked by a recurring cycle of Americans forced out of work due to the economic crisis.
Obama calls latest job losses astounding

NEW YORK (AP) - Wall Street has given up early gains and has turned lower as the severity of U.S. job losses began to register with investors. Stocks turn lower after February jobs data

WASHINGTON - The truisms have been familiar to generations of Americans: As General Motors goes, so goes the nation; Citigroup is too big to fail; General Electric, one of the 12 original companies in the Dow Jones industrial average in 1896, brings good things to life. America’s corporate giants crumbling

WASHINGTON - Senate Banking Committee Chairman Christopher Dodd has moved to allow the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to temporarily borrow up to $500 billion from the Treasury Department, The Wall Street Journal reported Friday. Report: Bill seeks $500 billion for FDIC fund

The above is just a sampling of the financial and business news from the reports today.

The jobless rates have gone UP, in a large way. Barack Obama, the guy that never really held a JOB, is ‘astounded‘. The stock markets are all but in the tank because of the financial mess this nation is in, and the stock markets are responsible for that situation, in a very large way. The biggest corporations in America are crumbling, Obama and Company are throwing BILLIONS of our TAX dollars at them in an effort to save them, and then the news comes out that it appears that no matter what is done, some of these corporations are done for anyway.

That’s bad news folks, it’s terrible news, but it doesn’t bother me nearly as much as the last little blurb concerning the FDIC.

The Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) is a United States government corporation created by the Glass-Steagall Act of 1933. It provides deposit insurance, which guarantees the safety of deposits in member banks, currently up to $250,000 per depositor per bank. FDIC

I don’t mean to be an alarmist, but for some reason, when the FDIC has to borrow money to guarantee MY deposits, I get a bit nervous! What I get from this story is, the Feds are propping up the FDIC in an effort to make this stimulus and all the extended credit that Obama and Company believe will bail out this nation become a reality with an infusion of an additional $500 BILLION.

Seems to me that all we are doing is robbing Peter to pay Paul. I believe what we are seeing is called shuck and jive on the street, and unless you are the gullible *mark* that falls for the 3 card shuffle and the shell game, you know as well as I do, this crap is NOT going to work and all Obama and Company are doing is throwing good money after bad.

And now we are hearing that Bernie Madoff may be about to enter into a plea deal, Prosecutors indicate Madoff plea may be in works, I’ll bet that makes the folks that lost BILLIONS in his ponzi scheme feel a lot better…
