Quote: "When the stock market crashed, Franklin Roosevelt got on television and didn't just talk about the, you know, princes of greed. He said, "look, here's what happened.'" - Vice-Presidential Candidate Joe Biden, September 2008

Fact: Television didn't exist in 1929. And, if it did, Franklin Roosevelt wasn't the president.

While some people may think Joe "Biden is a sharp cookie," this proves undoubtedly that Joe Biden is an incompetent, babbling, delusional fool. Unfortunately, we already have an abundance of these in the congress and the senate.

And let's not forget that Barack Obama thought there were 57 states.

These guys are living proof that The Three Stooges had kids.

"Part of what I'd love is a vacation from the press." This is from the man who promised us the most transparent Presidency in history.

Obama doesn't need critics. Fox News is superfluous. Forget Joe Biden putting his foot in his mouth. He can't equal his Chief. Obama has a bazooka permanently aimed at his own foot.

Nothing could prove more conclusively the man's immaturity and cluelessness than 1) going golfing right after making a statement about James Foley, 2) commenting, at age 53, that he should have "anticipated the optics of it," and 3) comparing the communications aspect of his job to theater. I mean, Reagan was an actor, and everyone knew it; Obama puts on an act, and even he doesn't realize it. 

How pathetic.

    Ukraine lawmakers ratify landmark deal with Europe
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) — Ukraine moved to resolve months of crisis Tuesday by strengthening ties to Europe and loosening some controls over the country's rebellious eastern regions where it has been fighting Russian-backed separatists.
The actions by lawmakers began to flesh out the emerging picture of a new Ukraine, where a determined pivot toward Europe has come at great cost: concessions to Russia and a war with rebels that killed more than 3,000 people and pushed the West's relations with Moscow to Cold War-era lows.
The measure deepening the economic and political ties with Europe was the issue that sparked the crisis last fall, when then-President Viktor Yanukovych's decision to shelve the deal in favor of closer ties with Russia sparked protests by hundreds of thousands. Those demonstrations eventually drove him from power in February and led to the annexation of Crimea by Moscow and the rebellion in the east, where a shaky cease-fire began Sept. 5.
The deal lowers trade tariffs between Europe and Ukraine, requires Ukrainian goods to meet European regulatory standards and forces the Kiev government to undertake major political and economic reforms.
After parliament ratified the measure, lawmakers leapt to their feet to applaud and sing the Ukrainian national anthem. A live broadcast of the session was beamed to the European parliament.
President Petro Poroshenko called the vote a "first but very decisive step" toward bringing Ukraine fully into the European Union.
He said the protesters who died in clashes with riot police in Kiev and the government troops killed by rebels in the east "have died not only for their motherland. They gave up their lives for us to take a dignified place among the European family."
"After World War II, not a single nation has paid such a high price for their right to be European," he said. "Can you tell me, who now after this will be brave enough to shut the doors to Europe in front of Ukraine?"
Earlier Tuesday, the parliament also approved laws granting temporary self-rule to rebellious, pro-Russian regions in the east, as well as amnesty for many of those involved in the fighting.
The lawmakers took that action behind closed doors, in stark contrast to the patriotic fanfare of that vote on the European agreement. In his thunderous speech, Poroshenko did not mention those two measures, which are likely to generate far more controversy among Ukrainians.
One of the laws calls for three years of self-rule in parts of eastern Ukraine and for local elections in November. It grants concessions that were not offered in a peace plan that Poroshenko put forward three months ago when he became president, such as local oversight of court and prosecutor appointments and local control of police.
A separate bill calls for amnesty for those involved in the eastern fighting, although not for persons suspected or charged with crimes including murder, sabotage, rape, kidnapping and terrorism. The law also does not grant amnesty to those who have tried to kill Ukrainian law enforcement officials and servicemen — meaning that most of the separatists, who have waged war for five months on government forces, could not be eligible.
The decision to hold a closed-door session — an anomaly in the Ukrainian parliament — underscored the political challenges of the measures. Although Poroshenko did not mention the bills in his speech, he was later quoted by Interfax-Ukraine as saying that he felt "we are obliged to take a step to ensure that the other side takes corresponding steps" toward peace.
Alexander Zakharchenko, the leader of the rebels in the Donetsk region, told Russia's RIA Novosti news agency that the separatist leadership would study the measures, an unusually conciliatory statement compared to the rebels' previous assertions that they aim for complete independence.
The U.S. State Department and Vice President Joe Biden congratulated Ukrainian lawmakers and leaders.
"By forging ahead with this agreement in the face of great challenges, Ukraine's leaders have carried out the will of the Ukrainian people, who demonstrated their overwhelming support for further integration with Europe last winter and with their votes in the May 25 presidential elections," said Marie Harf, deputy spokeswoman at the State Department.
Harf also applauded the passage of the amnesty and self-rule measures, saying they were "two important commitments Ukraine made in the Minsk cease-fire agreement on Sept. 5." She urged Russia and the separatists to begin immediate and full implementation of the cease-fire agreement.
Vice President Joe Biden and Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk, in a telephone conversation, agreed that Russia and its "separatist proxies" should do their part in immediately implementing all the provisions of the Minsk agreement, including "the removal of all Russian troops from Ukraine and the creation of a security area in the border regions" of Ukraine and Russia, according to a statement released by Biden's office.
The passage of the measures came as Poroshenko begins his first state visit to Canada and the U.S., where he will address a joint session of Congress on Thursday and is also scheduled to speak to the U.N. General Assembly next week.
The EU association agreement was long sought by Ukrainians who want their country to turn westward and out of Russia's sphere of influence, and its passage was welcomed by many in Kiev, even if they also were worried about some of the government's actions.
"I participated in the protests, and we've been waiting for this for so long," said Rostislav Sezov, adding that he didn't oppose greater autonomy for regions in the east.
"Let us be smaller but better. Let us be a core that is oriented toward Europe," he said.
During the protests in February, the EU's flag — the same blue and yellow as Ukraine's — was seen everywhere. That symbol faded into the background as demonstrators, who set up camp on Kiev's Independence Square, fended off riot police night after gripping night with barricades of bricks and burning tires.
But even after Russia annexed Ukraine's Black Sea peninsula of Crimea in March and a pro-Russian rebellion broke out in eastern Ukraine in April, the new Kiev government made it clear that it would not back down from the EU deal.
In Brussels, EU lawmakers overwhelmingly ratified the agreement.
"The message this sends could not be clearer: the European Parliament supports Ukraine in its European vocation," said Martin Schulz, the president of the EU Parliament. "The European Parliament will continue defending a united and sovereign Ukraine."
Russia has strongly opposed Ukraine's tilt toward the EU and it has threatened that the reduction of tariffs on Western goods would force it to limit the influx of Ukrainian products into Russia.
In a significant concession to Moscow, Ukraine and the EU agreed last week to delay the full reciprocal implementation of a reduced-tariff regime until at least 2016.
Both Brussels and Kiev have asserted that other parts of the agreement, such as major political and economic reforms in Ukraine, will not be delayed, but those compromise efforts have many Ukrainians worried that its government is giving away too much to Moscow.
Alexander Sinegub, an entrepreneur who was walking in downtown Kiev, said he had "mixed feelings" about the EU deal.
"Nothing has been cleaned up. They've put a bunch of more-or-less patriots at the top of the government, but beneath them everybody has stayed the same. Half a year has passed and yet it's somehow sad to look at all of this," he said.
Also on Tuesday, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu said the military will increase its forces in Crimea due to the "exacerbation of situation in Ukraine and increased foreign military presence near our borders." He said Russia will have a "full-fledged" force deployed to Crimea, but wouldn't give any details.
The cease-fire in eastern Ukraine has been riddled by violations from the start. On Tuesday, the city council in Donetsk said three people died and five were wounded in shelling overnight.
Col. Andriy Lysenko, a spokesman for Ukraine's national security council, said three Ukrainian servicemen were killed in the past day. Clashes continue in the area around the airport in Donetsk, the largest city under rebel control.
On Monday, a shell hit a municipal bus in downtown Donetsk, killing one person and injuring another. Evgeniy Medvedev said his mother, Tatiana, was killed on the bus, and he covered her body with a jacket. He said she had been at work when the firing started, and got on the municipal bus to get out of the neighborhood.
"She tried to escape from there, but the shell caught up with her anyway," he said.

From USA TODAY

Punchlines: Is Hillary Clinton on the run?

While Hillary Clinton hasn't officially announced her bid for president, all signs indicated that she would run long before her stop this weekend in Iowa. That appearance, and the stump speech she made for Iowa Democrats, just sealed the deal on the former first lady's 2016 ambitions for many pundits. But some of the late-night comics focused more on former president Bill Clinton's actions than his wife's. When Hillary began her speech by saying "I'm baaaaaack," one comic said that out of habit Bill grabbed his shoes and jumped out of the nearest window. Another stated that Vice President Joe Biden will take a trip to Iowa to help some nuns kick off a voter registration drive and to get lost in a corn maze.

Randall -- Barack emailed you this morning.

And I’m emailing you in the afternoon.

When both the President and Vice President email you -- it’s got to be important. Take 30 seconds and read this:

1. We could actually win in the South. Democrats are ahead in five Southern states.
2. We could actually END the Tea Party's Senate takeover hopes. If we win these five races, those hopes will be finished.
3. We could actually end decades of the Republicans' Southern domination. It’d be a devastating loss for the GOP.

But in order to do this, we need to invest in voter mobilization NOW. Not later -- now. That’s why if you give TODAY, your gift will go that much further toward helping us win.

Donate to our Paint the South Blue Program before midnight and your gift will be TRIPLE MATCHED.

If you’ve saved your payment information with ActBlue Express, your donation will go through immediately:

Pitch in $8 IMMEDIATELY >>

Pitch in $35 IMMEDIATELY >>

Pitch in $50 IMMEDIATELY >>

Pitch in $75 IMMEDIATELY >>

Pitch in $100 IMMEDIATELY >>

Or donate another amount.

Since Barack emailed you this morning, 9,500 Democrats have stepped up. That’s just astounding -- they get why early giving is so important. It’s because the plans and investments we make now will determine whether we win or not in November.

Can you help push us over the top, and hit 15,000 contributions by midnight? I think we can get there -- because you realize as much as I do what’s at stake in in this election.

Will you give -- and have your gift triple matched -- so we can win this fall?

I’m constantly amazed at the power of our Democratic base. I know we can do this.

Thank you,

Joe Biden






Every dollar you give today will go to protect our Democratic Senate majority.
Thank you for your continued support.

It’s hosted by Iowa’s retiring Senator Tom Harkin. Since 1972, Democrats have gathered at the events to eat food, hear speeches from candidates and talk politics. Often the event is used as an occasion to promote candidates from Iowa, but over the years it has become a national event, drawing the likes of Vice Presidents Al Gore and Joe Biden, President Obama, senators, and presidential candidates.

ISIS gained power on Obama’s watch, To make US and world safer arrest impeach or remove Obama from White House, ISIS evolved from Al Qaeda, Obama bragged of demise of Al Qaeda
“The military sophistication of Isis in Iraq is much greater than al-Qa’ida, the organisation out of which it grew”…The Independent June 16, 2014
“al Qaeda’s core leadership has been decimated.”
“That’s why, working with Joe Biden and our national security team, we’ve been able to decimate al Qaeda.”…Barack Obama October 23, 2012
“Winston dialed ‘back numbers’ on the telescreen and called for the appropriate issues of The Times, which slid out of the pneumatic tube after only a few minutes’ delay. The messages he had received referred to articles or news items which for one reason or another it was thought necessary to alter, or, as the official phrase had it, to rectify. For example, it appeared from The Times of the seventeenth of March that Big Brother, in his speech of the previous day, had predicted that the South Indian front would remain quiet but that a Eurasian offensive would shortly be launched in North Africa. As it happened, the Eurasian Higher Command had launched its offensive in South India and left North Africa alone. It was therefore necessary to rewrite a paragraph of Big Brother’s speech, in such a way as to make him predict the thing that had actually happened.”…George Orwell, “1984”
The rise in power and wealth of ISIS happened on Obama’s watch.
Or whatever you call playing cards and golfing during a crisis is.
From CNS News November 1, 2012.
“President Barack Obama has described al Qaeda as having been “decimated,” “on the path to defeat” or some other variation at least 32 times since the attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, according to White House transcripts.
This comes despite Libyan President Mohamed Yousef El-Magarief, members of Congress, an administration spokesperson, and several press reports suggesting that al Qaeda played a role in the attack.”
“Fox News reported Monday about an Aug. 15 emergency meeting of personnel at the U.S. Mission in Benghazi over concerns of al Qaeda training camps in the area.
An Aug. 16 cable from Ambassador Chris Stevens, who was killed on Sept. 11, was sent to the Office of the Secretary of State and briefed on the emergency meeting, saying, “on the location of approximately ten Islamist militias and AQ training camps within Benghazi … these groups ran the spectrum from Islamist militias, such as QRF Brigade and Ansar al-Sharia to Takfirist thugs,” Fox News reported the communication as saying.
One day after the Benghazi attack that occurred on the 11th anniversary of 9/11, Obama spoke at a campaign event in Las Vegas on Sept. 12.
“A day after 9/11, we are reminded that a new tower rises above the New York skyline, but al Qaeda is on the path to defeat and bin Laden is dead,” Obama said in Las Vegas.”
“Obama said Oct. 23 at Lynn University in Boca Raton, Fla., “al Qaeda’s core leadership has been decimated.” He repeated the same line at a campaign event in Delray Beach, Fla. that day.
That day in Dayton, Ohio, Obama said, “That’s why, working with Joe Biden and our national security team, we’ve been able to decimate al Qaeda.””

From The Independent June 16, 2014.
“With its multi-pronged assault across central and northern Iraq in the past one and a half weeks, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has taken over from the al-Qa’ida organisation founded by Osama bin Laden as the most powerful and effective extreme jihadi group in the world.
 Isis now controls or can operate with impunity in a great stretch of territory in western Iraq and eastern Syria, making it militarily the most successful jihadi movement ever.”
“The swift rise of Isis since Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi became its leader has come because the uprising of the Sunni in Syria in 2011 led the Iraqi Sunni to protest about their political and economic marginalisation since the fall of Saddam Hussein.”
“Isis has the great advantage of being able to operate on both sides of the Syrian-Iraq border, though in Syria it is engaged in an intra-jihadi civil war with Jabhat al-Nusra, Ahrar al-Sham and other groups. But Isis controls Raqqa, the only provincial capital taken by the opposition, and much of eastern Syria outside enclaves held by the Kurds close to the Turkish border.”
“Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi, also known as Abu Dua, the leader of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (Isis) has suddenly emerged as a figure who is shaping the future of Iraq, Syria and the wider Middle East.
He began to appear from the shadows in the summer of 2010 when he became leader of al-Qa’ida in Iraq (AQI) after its former leaders were killed in an attack by US and Iraqi troops.”

From Rush Limbaugh in August 2014.
“I was prepared to spend a lot of time on it today, and then it changed.  Here’s the timeline of this.  One year ago, Barack Obama… Thirteen or 14 months ago now, Barack Obama declares a red line to Bashar al-Assad of Syria, because a year ago there’s a civil war in Syria. That civil war is still going on, by the way. A year ago we were under the impression that Assad was gassing his own people and committing other unspeakable atrocities on his own people.
We, a year ago, were banging the war drums to send American bombs and other armaments to the “rebels” in Syria opposing Bashar Assad.  And the red line Obama drew for Assad was to get him to stop gassing his own people.  Well, Obama drew the red line, but people in Syria continued to get gassed. They continued to die.  And the Regime, the Obama Regime continued to believe — as did everybody else — that Assad was gassing his own people.
Most everybody believed this, and that went on for a year.  It was last August or September that we were this close — I’ve got my index finger and thumb about 16th of an inch apart. We were this close to actually maybe sending troops but bombing Bashar Assad, and Assad targets.  We didn’t do it.  Obama got called a paper tiger; Assad was puffing his chest out because red line was drawn and Obama didn’t do anything about it.
His credibility again was on the ropes.
And then shortly thereafter I remember talking about this on the radio and I had read a piece, which I reprinted yesterday and studied it all over again by Yossef Bodansky which documented (one year ago) that Assad was not gassing his own people. So I took that piece and I came here to the EIB Golden EIB Microphone and I openly speculated, based on what I had read in Yossef Bodansky, “You know, what if…?
“What if Assad isn’t doing this?  What if it’s being made to look like Assad is gassing his own people by the rebels?” Who we learned later were Al-Qaeda. The Bodansky piece documents how the United States was on the verge — with Turkey and Qatar and a couple other allies — of arming (I mean, heavily arming) the Syrian rebels and planning bombing strikes against Assad targets.  Now, that never happened.”
I am not sure if I trust the Syrian Government more than Obama.
However, this Wikileak document looks interesting.
Did the Syrian Government make a serious offer to cooperate with the US to fight terrorists in Syria.

You do not have to be a rocket scientist to figure this out.
One of 2 scenarios:
1. Obama was caught with his pants down literally or figuratively.
2. This is part of some diversionary scheme or plot to please the Saudis, et al.
