Calling the left crazy a year ago makes us look sane now

ahmadinejad huffington post

Toying with its prey: Mahmoud Ahmadinejad has been the cat, Barack Obama has been the mouse.

Don’t look for the Huffington Post to recycle its column about Obama the “strategist” as one of its great journalistic efforts of the decade.

At about this time last year we lambasted a HuffPo article about The Greatest Strategist Ever’s dealings with Iran.

The HuffPo article, hilariously entitled “Outmaneuvering Iran”, contained a lot of material that didn’t make it into our original story. Not because of space, but quite frankly, because we grew weary of reading HuffPo.

Regardless, here are some of the leftist pearls of wisdom that missed our first cut:

“Obama is now well positioned to unite world leaders in a long-term strategy to back Iran away from nuclear weapons. While some nations mistrusted the previous administration–fearing a repeat of the Iraq War–they have more confidence in Obama. They don’t believe he will use military force, except as a last resort.”

And then there was this little gem:

“Meanwhile, Obama’s missile defense decision–a move that puts more military assets in position more quickly against the Iranian missiles–not only increases the pressure on Iran but allows Russia to move closer to the U.S. position without appearing to be buckling to America.”

Yes, all this has obviously worked out so very well. We’re only surprised that Obama doesn’t have the U.S. help Iran load fuel rods into its reactors just to show them that we knew that they knew that we knew they knew. Or something like that.

We may not be Jean Dixon here, but give us credit on calling it a year ago. The left was crazy then. And it’s even crazier now.

Amalabbababehoidhjah is an evil man, but he is not the only one and there are more nefarious people backing him who are faceless.

I think that there is some innate desire within most humans that desire to look upon someone else as greater than oneself and put a lot of faith on that person… that is not necessarily bad unless we are talking about a person like Amalahgbababhjahjah and people like him (*coughs* Obama *coughs*).

The libs will probably run Ahmadinejad as their next Messiah.
He’s everything a good lib worships

That guy has the devil’s face. I so very much my government had the collective balls to have turned him into sand, rather than requiring Israel to do it. Now that Iran has nuclear abilities, when Israel does something, our MSM will have a running total across the bottom of our screens of the Iranian kids, by age, that now glow green in the dark. Goodie goodie gumdrops.

I love Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ! The only thing better than that dude threatening to wipe out the Jews, are the Jews block voting for us and essentially helping create their own destruction (even with our proud anti-Semite Jimmy Carter those dummy’s never figured out we want their destruction just as much as the next Muslim terrorist).

YT-
Unfortunately its not that easy. The “anonymous” bankers all have more money that you can even imagine-I know-I work with some of them.
Yes-they want to keep their money-but there isn’t much more money left on earth for them to collect.
Furthermore, what is there here to control? Seriously-there is nothing left-we became a country where little-nothing is produced. Instead of damning those with money, we need the powers that be in DC to attract those “anonymous” types to spend it here, instead of continuing to squirrel it away in Europe, and beyond.
This country doesn’t live under the thumb of those anonymous bankers. They simply are the circling vultures who stand by, on high, and watch as the retards who we idiots continually put in office, ruin industry, ruin civility, and ignore infrastructure.
It is necessary for us to take back the country-and give those mean old bankers reason to invest in us again. It will happen, if there are leaders who give a shit about this country’s existence. Otherwise, they will continue to not spend here-and to save it for a rainy day.

Matthew, I would love to get your insight on the following. Have you ever heard of the Zeitgeist Movement and/or the Venus Project? Quiet Frankly both scare the sh!t outta me. The whole plan involves total economic collapse with a goal of doing away with the “outdated” monetary system and converting to a “resource based economy”. The claim is that no one will have to work, robots basically become our “slaves” while we enjoy a life of leisure. They claim to have the solutions to all social problems. Claim to be able to put an end to crime, poverty, war etc. Sounds like total socialistic/communistic BS to me. If I’m not mistaking, Jacque Fresco and Roxanne Meadows (founders of the Venus Project) were among those with radical ways of thinking back in the 1960’s though I don’t think they were violent like Bill Ayers and his ilk. Still I think the mindset is the same.

Sounds like G-d replacement to me and that does scare the living crap out of me, because EVERY single time someone/a group wants to replace G-d they all turn tyrannical, murderous and evil and millions upon millions of lives are ended.

I picked up on that too, KQ.

This come directly from the Goal statement:

Religion is the largest promoter of this propaganda, for the “us and them” or “good and evil” mentality promotes this false assumption.

It is time to stop the patchwork. It is time to begin a new social approach which is updated to present day knowledge. Sadly, society today is still largely based on outmoded, superstitious dispositions and resolutions.

Certainly sounds to me that ending all religious beliefs is part of the ultimate goal.

I think that their mentality is that…. If they terminate people’s faith in a Higher Power who exists on another plane and is not a mere human being, some people’s need for a Higher Power would then turn to whomever has the most power and influence over people’s lives here on Earth. The thing is that most of those people will not want to turn to a human or to a government or philosophy willingly and at that point in time the intimidations and mass murders happen.

To this day, no one has ever produced barry’s IQ numbers. I think that in the big scheme of things, only one thing can be ascertained from all of his “brilliant actions”.
He works for someone-outside the US, who wants the country to fall. That someone is Soros, who desires the US to fall completely(he has said it publicly in numerous interviews). His opinion is that the world can’t be a safe and happy place, until the US is destroyed economically. He says that he is in favor of parity between all global citizens, but the truth is, he, barry, and the rest of the libtard elitists want everyone to be broke but them, giving them sway over all things, political, social, and financial.
While barry has been publicly destroying America, he has been funneling much to Soros and all of his “PACs”, and other organizations. The money these people are getting through direct action by barry, such as Indymac bank, that soros bought from FDIC for literally a few pennies on the dollar, with a guarantee against their half trillion dollar mortgage portfolio to the tune of 90% of the value of each mortgage(giving soros 1/2 trillion dollars of taxpayer money), and the Petrobas grant of $8 billion, which shortly before that grant signed and sealed by barry, Soros bought 25% of the company in a cash for stocks purchase, and too many others to denote here, is a sign that barry is in lock-step with soros, and has designs of being the emperor.
The funny thing about this-and all of barry’s other “policies” such as his hands off policy in the middle east, is that the Russians, unless in collusion with soros, and the chinese, unless in collusion with soros, will NEVER allow this insolent twat have the emperorship of the world. So, the idea, though seemingly working for barry, is doing nothing but destroying and weakening America, so that the Chinese and Russians, when they see that we are weakened enough, are going to tag team us, and we will then, truly fall. It is really a gigantic miscalculation by barry-one that terrifies me!

You’re almost right. The real culprit is the financial elites of the FED and CFR. Soros is just a skilled trader-stooge with delusions that he’s a philosopher. The real devil is an anonymous banker from old money that wants to rule the world from the country club. Actually, its a collection of them.

If I had to guess the true motive by the anonymous cabal that forms the powers that be… its either a) continuation of the current status where they can print the nations money with impunity or b) economic collapse where the real assets of the country are picked up for pennies on the dollar (figuratively…the real trade will be for canned food or gold flakes).
Thats what happened in Russia when liberalism…er…communism fell. A handful of crafty oligarchs ended up owning most of the country after a few years.

All the while all of these people are sucking the country dry while at the same hypocritical time condemn everyday people that they are evil for wanting the same things they are greedily taken over. It is disgusting.

Crazy? No. I call it purposeful naivete, to weaken the United States. It borders on treason.

60 days to go before we start putting the car in ‘R’ to back away from the cliff.

‘Strategist’? Clueless! The guy who aspires to be Mayor of Chicago someday has absolutely no idea how to play in the real world, he’s had sunshine blown up his affirmative action bottom and gotten a pat on the head since he was born, he thinks that’s reality.

The Big Bad Wolf of Reality is starting to Huffpo and Puffpo and blow their house down. However, I’m certain we’ll not see any pieces entitled, “Why Must the Facts Get in the Way of Our Philosophical Lunacy?”

A favorite Huff PO reader comment is something like this:
“Obama is playing chess while everyone else is playing checkers”.

This comment always comes up when it starts to appear that a White House Policy is failing or totally backfiring.

I think the President is more accurately playing tiddly-winks.
