Lefties at LA Times are Confused: Presume Arrogant Obama can be Disparaged

Putin is using his Syria gambit to disparage Obama

by Paul Richter and Brian Bennett  at the L. A. Times:

“The outcome of Vladimir Putin’s bold military gamble in Syria is far from clear, but in the short term, one loser seems certain: President Obama.

The Kremlin raised the stakes Wednesday by firing cruise missiles into Syria from warships nearly 1,000 miles away as Obama’s critics at home and abroad said Putin’s escalating attempt to bolster Syrian President Bashar Assad already has made the White House look weak and wavering.

The White House has been poised for weeks to quietly shift more U.S. military support to seasoned Kurdish militias and other rebel fighters in northern Syria. But at this point, any change in policy will appear to be in response to Putin’s muscular moves, not a new initiative to help solve the multi-sided conflict.

Middle Eastern allies who have chafed at Washington’s reluctance to plunge into the 4-year-old civil war have been impressed by how the Russian president has come to an ally’s defense, even if they don’t like his goals or his ally, Arab officials say.

In Washington, political leaders, from former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, now the Democratic presidential front-runner, to Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), the 2008 GOP presidential candidate, are criticizing Obama for not doing more to stop a war that has killed more than 200,000 people, fueled Islamic State and sent hundreds of thousands of refugees fleeing to Europe…….”   Please continue reading.


Cruz, Rubio, and Clarity in the GOP race

by Scott Rasmussen  at TownHall:

“Despite the oversized field and non-traditional candidates, the battle for the Republican presidential nomination is starting to shape up in familiar ways. There will be a champion of the establishment wing taking on the champion of the party base to determine the nominee.

One interesting possibility is that this year’s finalists could both be young, articulate and Hispanic. There’s a long road ahead, but it is very reasonable to envision Florida Sen. Marco Rubio and Texas Sen. Ted Cruz as the last candidates standing.

Among establishment candidates, Rubio almost certainly has enough charisma and eloquence to overcome Jeb Bush’s claim of inevitability. And, other than Bush, it’s hard to find a serious contender among the establishment crowd. Some see Ohio Gov. John Kasich as a possibility, but there is little evidence he has any support beyond a small group of reporters.

As for the outsider field, that is currently dominated by three people who have never held office before: Donald Trump, Ben Carson and Carly Fiorina. It’s been very healthy for these outsiders to shake things up in the Grand Old Party. Without them, the establishment never would have figured out how unpopular the idea of a third Bush in the White House had become…..”

WHY BIG BANKS LOVE DEMOCRATS…..by John Hinderaker at PowerLine:

“Since the financial collapse of 2008, the nation’s largest banks have seen their profits boom, as their share of the market has grown. Reuters reports:

Profits have soared since the global financial crisis at the five biggest U.S. banks with market-making dealing operations, New York Federal Reserve economists said in an article released on Wednesday.

From 2009 to 2014, the combined net income of J.P. Morgan, Citigroup, Bank of America, Goldman Sachs and Morgan Stanley annually averaged $41.73 billion, up from annual average of $25.08 billion from 2002 to 2008, they said.

Meanwhile, community banks are suffering. Why? Because the Democrats’ Dodd-Frank law is killing them, even as it boosts their biggest competitors. ValueWalk headlines: “Dodd-Frank Hurting Community Banks: Harvard Study.”

A recent study from the Harvard Kennedy School takes a closer look at the long-term plight of community banks (defined as banks with less than $10 billion in assets) in the U.S. Authors Marshall Lux and Robert Greene examine the issue using FDIC data to analyze the factors behind the decline in community banking — including over-regulation — and suggest policy alternatives that could help the community banking industry get back on its feet. …

Lux and Greene highlight the growing crisis in the community bank sector. The lending market share of community banks has dropped from above 40% in 1994 to around 20% at the end of 2014. Of note, community banks came out of the financial crisis with a 6% decrease in market share, but since the the passage of the Dodd-Frank Act, their share of U.S. commercial banking assets has declined at a rate almost double that between the second quarters of 2006 and 2010.

The decline in community banking has hurt small business:

The authors note: “Particularly troubling is community banks’ declining market share in several key lending markets, their decline in small business lending volume, and the disproportionate losses being realized by particularly small community banks.”

The problem, the Harvard authors conclude, is largely due to poor regulation.

That is, it is poor regulation if you care about small businesses and the economy as a whole. But the Democrats have other priorities: they are corporatists, who want to favor a few big firms that the government can then control. Dodd Frank has been a disaster, but not for the nation’s biggest banks, and not for the Democrat Party.”

Ditsy Chick at MSNBC Charges Ben Carson with “Victim Blaming” for Fighting Back Against Gunmen

Ditsy Chick at MSNBC recommends Ben Carson and others  become her ditsy clone when faced with terror…….a nearly universal tenet among the Obama feminist crowd.

The human male animal  is born by Nature to be a killer and a sexual predator.  The human female animal is born ditsy and otherwise intellectually incurious.    Both human animals  need civilized human training and God-fearing  to become civil to  bare  all of the responsibilities within life to form future generations to continue  civility .   American humans have been losing this war for the past generation or more.

As President Ronald Reagan loudly reminded citizens of his day, it should be remembered that in order for civilization to survive, the duty to civilize the human animal must be renewed with every new birth and generation.

Leftist Americans seem to have paid no attention.

Americans have inherited the corrupt leftist Hillary Clinton and Barack Hussein Obama sleaze and dishonesty by forgetting  that basic, overwhelming truth with  the collapse of not only the American family,  but its educational and religious institutions as well.

Today the American family unit  is in a state of severe collapse.  Good is becoming overwhelmed by evil;   truth with dishonesty;  understanding with ignorance, primarily due to acceptance of a new religion, Marxism.    We have produced vacuous automatons  like those who preach their brand of Marxism that the human sexes are equals and therefore the same, from the pews at  MSNBC  to those in today’s Obama White House.


……and while viewing wonder if the ditsy chick is at all aware that Ben Carson is not a ditsy sister chick but a human  guy, and was likely born  a human guy, but  has not yet been feminized or otherwise drugged to abandon his natural  instincts to protect good from evil.


How Did The Democrats Become Favorites of the Rich?…..by T.B. Edsall at the New York Times


by Thomas B. Edsall of the New York Times Opinion Page:

“Voters on both the left and the right often claim that there is no difference between the Democratic and Republican Parties, and of course that isn’t true. There’s a big difference between Elena Kagan and Antonin Scalia, for one thing. But there may be more to this argument than you think.

Democrats now depend as much on affluent voters as on low-income voters. Democrats represent a majority of the richest congressional districts, and the party’s elected officials are more responsive to the policy agenda of the well-to-do than to average voters. The party and its candidates have come to rely on the elite 0.01 percent of the voting age population for a quarter of their financial backing and on large donors for another quarter.

The gulf between the two parties on socially fraught issues like abortion, immigration, same-sex marriage and voting rights remains vast. On economic issues, however, the Democratic Party has inched closer to the policy positions of conservatives, stepping back from championing the needs of working men and women, of the unemployed and of the so-called underclass.

In this respect, the Democratic Party and its elected officials have come to resemble their Republican counterparts far more than the public focus on polarization would lead you to expect. The current popularity of Bernie Sanders and his presidential candidacy notwithstanding, the mainstream of the Democratic Party supports centrist positions ranging from expanded free trade to stricter control of the government budget to time limits on welfare for the poor.

“Both Republicans and many Democrats have experienced an ideological shift toward acceptance of a form of free market capitalism which, among other characteristics, offers less support for government provision of transfers, lower marginal tax rates for those with high incomes, and deregulation of a number of industries,” the political scientists Adam Bonica, Nolan McCarty, Keith Poole and Howard Rosenthal write in a 2014 essay titled “Why Hasn’t Democracy Slowed Rising Inequality?”
