Obama’s Competence Problem is Worse Than it Looks!

“But, is Obama’s incompetence natural or by design?” is the question. Let us not forget he was a graduate of Harvard Marxist and black racist, Jeremiah Wright’s temples of learning.

The following article by Chris Cillizza is from the Washington Post

You can understand President Obama’s current political problems — and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall’s midterm election — in a single word. And that word is “competence”.

Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to “Heck of a job, Brownie” and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question.

Almost six years on from that election, however, Obama is faltering badly on the competence question and, in so doing, badly imperiling not only his ability to enact any sort of second term agenda but also Democrats’ chances this fall. A series of events — from the VA scandal to the ongoing border crisis to the situation in Ukraine to the NSA spying program — have badly undermined the idea that Obama can effectively manage the government.

Feminism Infects Gilbert and Sullivan’s Mikado with Racism

Mikado’ is denounced in US as racist. Next step, a ban? – See more at: http://slippedisc.com/2014/07/mikado-is-denounced-in-us-as-racist-next-step-a-ban/#sthash.I8YlWufV.MQvvWGYv.dpuf

(Feminism has been gathering rotting teeth recently with nothing to chew on.  Sharon Pian Chan apparently is bored not hitting a high enough lefty batting average.   She is investigation the  degree of density of the modern lefty American mind……those human animals between 12 and 54.    Although the Mikado is a wonderful spoof of humor, lyrics and music in  Japanese costume,  making fun  at  British Victorianism,  an insulted  Ms Chan with Chinese, not Japanese-like name, will have none of it.   Her feminist appetite is stirred in Seattle, the seat of  lefty sexist  ignorance north of San Francisco.  She demands reparations against white males in general and a 19th English  composer and his  musical playwright in particular all happening here in ObamaLand where noses are easily pinched by such  bigots and bores these days .    Feminism in mouth is at political play again.)

Please read the following:

The Gilbert and Sullivan send-up of Europe’s late 19th century mania for Japanese culture has run into heavy waters in Seattle.

Sharon Pian Chan, an op-ed editor of the Seattle Times, calls it ‘yellowface, in your face’.

Needless to say, she hasn’t seen the show. But her column is widely read and Sharon has taken to the airwaves to promote her view that Mikado should only be performed, if at all, by Asian Americans like herself.

Peter A Klein has written to the paper’s editor, as follows:

“The Mikado” is not about any real Japan, it’s a satire on 19th-Century British society, dressed up in a fictionalized exotic locale to “gild the philosophic pill,” as Gilbert put it in another of his operettas.

I do wish Ms. Chan would learn the difference between affectionate satire, fairy tales, clumsy ignorance and actual bigotry. Such discernment would be worthy of a person who helps guide the editorial voice of a great city’s newspaper. Banning, censoring or bowdlerizing art is a grim pastime. “Presentism”–the idea that all older works of art and literature must conform to today’s sensibilities and sensitivities or be subject to censorship–is a present-day curse. It would deprive us of great works of art like Puccini’s “Madame Butterfly” and “Turandot,” sparkling music, humor and wordplay like Gilbert and Sullivan’s, and even works that actually plead for inter-ethnic understanding, such as Mark Twain’s “Huckleberry Finn” or Rodgers and Hammerstein’s “South Pacific.”

Such censorship can backfire. In 1907, Japanese Prince Fushimi visited Britain. The Lord Chamberlain banned performances of “The Mikado” in London to avoid offending the Prince. The Prince was offended, all right–he wanted very much to see the show, and was very upset that he could not. The Daily Mail dispatched a native Japanese newspaper critic to a provincial performance, far from the Prince. Mr. K. Sugimura wrote: “I came to Sheffield expecting to discover real insults to my countrymen. I find bright music and much fun, but I could not find the insults.”

His letter has not yet been published.

Krauthammer: John Kerry Serves “Essentially as a lawyer for Hamas.”

The foundation of  the vacuous, deceitful American, John Kerry’s rise to name recognition and status began “essentially as a lawyer for  the Communist, Ho Chi Minh’s Viet Kong, the director of the assassinations of 50,000 village chieftains in South Vietnam during the John F. Kennedy administration, helping to steal victory in the Vietnam war to humiliating retreat and slaughter of countless Vietnamese who depended on ‘free’ America to keep South Vietnam ‘free’.

As Secretary of State, he follows in the footsteps of Hillary Clinton,  serving Barack Hussein Obama’s plan for America well:

The following  is  from a realclearpolitics video (without the video):


CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Look, most of this is a result of American disengagement and withdrawal. When you see what happens when America engages you wonder whether we shouldn’t have more disengagement. Look at the wreckage that Kerry has done in intervening in the Israeli/Gaza fighting. He decides he has to go, the Israelis did not invite him. The Egyptians didn’t want him. And he said he advanced a peace plan that was sort of building on the Egyptian one. It didn’t at all. It undermined it.

I think there was a left-wing Israeli paper that said Kerry had dug a tunnel under the Egyptian peace plan. Egypt wanted a ceasefire in place which means no reward for Hamas starting this war by attacking the civilians, which is a war crime. And that was proposed before the ground incursion, the casualties would have been infinitely lower. Israel accepted; Hamas said no.

Kerry goes over and then he negotiates in Paris with who? Qatar and Turkey and returns essentially as the lawyer for Hamas, hands Israel a proposition that is so outrageous that the cabinet votes 19-0 against it. Israeli cabinets have never voted 19-0 on whether the sunrises in the east. It was unbelievable. It would have given Hamas all of its demands. As a result — and there’s one thing he doesn’t seem to understand.

There’s a miracle happening in the Middle East which is a tacit alliance between Israel, Egypt, Jordan, the Palestinian Authority of all people, Saudi Arabia, the UAE and the Gulf Arabs, all of them are our friends who want to see Hamas squeezed, who supported the Arab league, supported the Egyptian peace plan and this entirely undermines [it]. It’s a peace plain that all the Arabs had supported and this undermines it. If I could add one point. The Palestinian Authority leader attacked the plan and said what was Kerry doing in Paris negotiating with Qatar and Turkey and leaving out the P.A. and leaving out Egypt?

Queen Hillary Butches Up Her Yelling at Bibi Netanyahu, bragging a very good relationship with the Israeli PM.

Hillary certainly is in second place in her race with Barack Hussein Obama for the American Cup  blabbing-time championship points.  Being feminist, however, allows her to be more vacuous and less clever,  features highly valued   in today’s Democrat Party’s  lefty arena of  politics.   She is a winner of the Jewish vote no matter what she says  in public or ‘in private’…..She talks tough, walks tough, and so on.


FAREED ZAKARIA: Bibi Netanyahu. You said you had a complicated and it sounded like a difficult relationship with him.

HILLARY CLINTON: Well, I have to say, I’ve known be a long time and I have a very good relationship with him, in part because we can yell at each other, and we do. And I was often the designated yeller. Something would happen, a new settlement announcement would come and I would call him up, what are you doing? You’ve got to stop this. And we understood each other because I know how hard it is to be the leader of a relatively small country that is under constant pressure and does face a lot of legitimate threats to its existence from those around it.

And I also care deeply about how Israel is able, not just to survive, but thrive, and just fundamentally disagreed with Bibi in the ’90s that I was in favor of a two-state solution. I was the first person associated with any administration to say that out loud. And he did not. But then when he came back in, in 2009, he did. And I’ve sat with him, as you and I are sitting, and I really believe that if he thought he could get adequate security guarantees for a long enough period of time, he would be able to resolve everything with the exception of Jerusalem which is the hardest issue.

You can get borders, and if you can figure out how to do security within those borders, some of which may require having IDF and international forces in the Jordan valley, for example. Then if you could move toward a state and leave Jerusalem to be worked on, because that’s the hardest issue for all sides.
