… More Obama in Fantasyland …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,April 3rd,2014

.. this take is courtesy of former U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. John Bolton …

.. [h/t — WashingtonFreeBeacon]..
.. [link] to the interview segment ..

.. as Ambassador Bolton puts it , ” Obama lives in a World of Words , Vladimir Putin lives in a World of Power . ”

.. May God in Heaven Help up All …

.. from the interview segment …

“There’s nothing in the speech about understanding force and power and international affairs the way the Russians do and how they proceeded, nor anything about deterrents or dissuasion. It was almost entirely about international norms, international law, the United Nations, none of which have done a thing to stop Russians in Ukraine.”

Additionally, Bolton ripped President Obama for suggesting U.S. interests in Ukraine are minimal considering the former Soviet state’s geopolitical significance.

“I think the president is living in a world of words and Putin is living in a world of power. I mean, the president even went so far as to argue actual U.S. interests in the Ukraine are fairly minimal. What concerns us is the violation of international law. I actually think we’ve got major tangible interest in the Ukraine,” he said.

If the U.S. and Europe fail to band together in a show of force against Putin, Bolton argued, further endangers Ukraine and will encourage other hostile nations around the around to mimic Putin’s expansionist agenda.

“That weakness, that inability to show strength, I think encourages Putin in Ukraine and rest of the former Soviet Union, and encourages other adversaries in other parts of the world like China to be assertive in their behavior as well.”

… Obama is In FantasyLand …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Wednesday,April 2nd,2014

.. as described by Dr. Charles Krauthammer …

.. Dr. Charles was on the O Reilly Factor the other day on his regular weekly segment . He wasted no time in tearing POTUS another brand new backside …

.. [h/t — theGatewayPundit]..
.. [link] to the show footage …

.. the allies are scared , the Russians are laughing at him , and the Middle East is about to explode into war …. No , a real big war , between Israel and Iran …

.. Israel knows that it has to hit Iran . It also knows that the U.S. under Barack Obama will not hit them . So the Israelis (along with the Saudis , among others — how is that for a tacit alliance) will hit Iran with everything that they have got … and , as a result , drag the U.S. into it … we still have bases in Kuwait , and will defend them . I wonder if the Iranians are that dumb to target those bases , knowing what the result will be …

… Nice Point , Ollie (North) [on Russia] …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Tuesday,March 25th,2014

.. Ollie North does not speak out in public all that often . Also , he does his homework before speaking out on a subject . So , that he is getting involved in the Russia – Ukraine crisis is noteworthy …

.. [h/t — Newsmax]..
.. [link] to the interview segment …

.. Ollie is right . Not always , though , but this time . He is spot on on the Russians . The Russians just do not have any respect (no , not for our country) for our current government …

.. They think Obama is a joke . Like many people , they believe [correctly] that POTUS has his head in the clouds , and governs as if he is in fantasyland …

President Obama’s foreign policy is based on fantasy

By , Published: March 2

FOR FIVE YEARS, President Obama has led a foreign policy based more on how he thinks the world should operate than on reality. It was a world in whichthe tide of war is receding” and the United States could, without much risk, radically reduce the size of its armed forces. Other leaders, in this vision, would behave rationally and in the interest of their people and the world. Invasions, brute force, great-power games and shifting alliances — these were things of the past. Secretary of State John F. Kerry displayed this mindset on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday when he said, of Russia’s invasion of neighboring Ukraine, “It’s a 19th century act in the 21st century.”

That’s a nice thought, and we all know what he means. A country’s standing is no longer measured in throw-weight or battalions. The world is too interconnected to break into blocs. A small country that plugs into cyberspace can deliver more prosperity to its people (think Singapore or Estonia) than a giant with natural resources and standing armies.

Unfortunately, Russian President Vladimir Putin has not received the memo on 21st-century behavior. Neither has China’s president, Xi Jinping, who is engaging in gunboat diplomacy against Japan and the weaker nations of Southeast Asia. Syrian president Bashar al-Assad is waging a very 20th-century war against his own people, sending helicopters to drop exploding barrels full of screws, nails and other shrapnel onto apartment buildings where families cower in basements. These men will not be deterred by the disapproval of their peers, the weight of world opinion or even disinvestment by Silicon Valley companies. They are concerned primarily with maintaining their holds on power.

 

Mr. Obama is not responsible for their misbehavior. But he does, or could, play a leading role in structuring the costs and benefits they must consider before acting. The model for Mr. Putin’s occupation of Crimea was his incursion into Georgia in 2008, when George W. Bush was president. Mr. Putin paid no price for that action; in fact, with parts of Georgia still under Russia’s control, he was permitted to host a Winter Olympics just around the corner. China has bullied the Philippines and unilaterally staked claims to wide swaths of international air space and sea lanes as it continues a rapid and technologically impressive military buildup. Arguably, it has paid a price in the nervousness of its neighbors, who are desperate for the United States to play a balancing role in the region. But none of those neighbors feel confident that the United States can be counted on. Since the Syrian dictator crossed Mr. Obama’s red line with a chemical weapons attack that killed 1,400 civilians, the dictator’s military and diplomatic position has steadily strengthened.

The urge to pull back — to concentrate on what Mr. Obama calls “nation-building at home” — is nothing new, as former ambassador Stephen Sestanovich recounts in his illuminating history of U.S. foreign policy, “Maximalist.” There were similar retrenchments after the Korea and Vietnam wars and when the Soviet Union crumbled. But the United States discovered each time that the world became a more dangerous place without its leadership and that disorder in the world could threaten U.S. prosperity. Each period of retrenchment was followed by more active (though not always wiser) policy. Today Mr. Obama has plenty of company in his impulse, within both parties and as reflected by public opinion. But he’s also in part responsible for the national mood: If a president doesn’t make the case for global engagement, no one else effectively can.

 

The White House often responds by accusing critics of being warmongers who want American “boots on the ground” all over the world and have yet to learn the lessons of Iraq. So let’s stipulate: We don’t want U.S. troops in Syria, and we don’t want U.S. troops in Crimea. A great power can become overextended, and if its economy falters, so will its ability to lead. None of this is simple.

But it’s also true that, as long as some leaders play by what Mr. Kerry dismisses as 19th-century rules, the United States can’t pretend that the only game is in another arena altogether. Military strength, trustworthiness as an ally, staying power in difficult corners of the world such as Afghanistan — these still matter, much as we might wish they did not. While the United States has been retrenching, the tide of democracy in the world, which once seemed inexorable, has been receding. In the long run, that’s harmful to U.S. national security, too.

As Mr. Putin ponders whether to advance further — into eastern Ukraine, say — he will measure the seriousness of U.S. and allied actions, not their statements. China, pondering its next steps in the East China Sea, will do the same. Sadly, that’s the nature of the century we’re living in.

… Welcome to the New Media Frontier , Washington ComPost …

Posted by paulfromwloh on Thursday,August 8th,2013

.. It is time to be slimmed down in order to compete . Otherwise , put your head between your knees and get ready to “die…”

[h/t — TAS // matt purple]

.. Americans have been facing the consequences of a shifting economy for years now . These effects often come in the form of lost jobs, foreclosed homes, and relocation. The national debt is unfathomably high, cities are going bankrupt, and small-business growth has ground to a halt thanks to burdensome regulations and health care costs. Meanwhile the Post gets sold to a different owner and suddenly it is the equivalent of sending loved ones to a crematorium. It is similar to what happened with the sequester: The Beltway experiences a gentle lick of the recession it helped create, and all hell breaks loose.

.. One should head west , outward from Washington , D.C. , Fantasyland on the Potomac .  Out beyond what Washington radio stations call the “DMV”—D.C., Maryland, and Virginia  . One should do so , fittingly abbreviated as a comically incompetent government agency—and try to find one person, just one, who cares deeply about the fact that the Post has changed hands. Surely there is someone out there who will express concerns about his job security and the intrusion of environmental regulations . They will think that is  far more important  than the fate of the Post , even though it will now be owned by someone else  .

.. Just one. He  or  she has  got to be out there.

.. The busines model  of news media , in  general , and newspapers  , in particular , must evolve . The market has given it no choice . Also , new media outlets are crushing the competition , and kicking their fannies . Either they evolve ,  or they may meet the fate of the Rocky Mountain News .  note the crossout . the RMN has been gone for a few years …

… Get the Hint ! …
