Of late, Barack Obama has (finally) gained the reputation of being a liar.
However, to be fair, the president has been known at least once to tell the truth, and Mark Halperin and John Heilemannâ€™s book â€œDouble Down: Game Change 2012â€ may prove it. According to Halperin and Heilemann, Obama boasted about his successful drone strikes when he allegedly told aides that heâ€™s â€œreally good at killing people.â€
Thatâ€™s right â€“ if what Halperin and Heilemann are saying is true, Barack Obama takes pride in killing people and isnâ€™t shy about bragging about it.
Throughout history there have been people who prided themselves on acquiring â€œAngel of Deathâ€ status.
Take for instance Josef Mengele, the German SS officer and physician in the Nazi concentration camp at Auschwitz who, besides torture and medical experimentation, also gleefully picked Jewish prisoners to be gassed.
There are Angel-of-Death mushrooms, flying artillery gun ships, serial killers, doctors, nurses, and religious figures like the Hindu Yama. In the Christian Book of Revelation, there is Apollyon, a destroying angel named after the Angel of Death, and even Islam has an Archangel of Death named Azrael.
So, with that in mind, isnâ€™t the world long overdue for an Angel of Death president? And who better to fit the bill than Barack Obama â€“ an ardently pro-choice, late-term abortion-loving, feticide activist and foe of providing medical care to babies born alive in botched abortions?
His abortion credentials alone should qualify him for the title. And although approving of 3,000 abortions a day is a notable accomplishment, Barack Obama certainly has other impressive qualifications.
For example, since 2004, 2,228-3,648 people have been killed by drone strikes in Pakistan, 416-948 of them innocent civilians, including 168-200 children. Out of the 378 strikes that have taken place between 2004 and 2013, 86%, or 326 drone attacks, are attributed to â€œObama strikes.â€
Between 2004 and 2009, under G.W. Bush there were only 52 drone attacks in Pakistan, which means that Barack â€œreally good at killing peopleâ€ Obama, with his Peace Prize in hand, can officially step up and be awarded the esteemed title of Angel of Death.
Stunning as it may seem, when the president said he is â€œreally good at killing people,â€ he told the truth…maybe for the first time ever. And might have only been fessing up because of the extreme pride he takes in exercising his homicidal skill set.
Either way, if the allegations are true, then the president apparently revels in wielding the power over life and death, and does so despite the CIAâ€™s targeted killing program being met with significant condemnation from those on the left. Those same Lefties were downright euphoric when he was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009 for â€œhis extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples.â€
After all, when it comes to carnage, itâ€™s already been proven that anti-Born Alive Act Barack takes delight in the shedding of innocent blood. Moreover, in addition to people, heâ€™s also proven to be adept at murdering the U.S. Constitution, liquidating the economy, mortally wounding the job market, and strangling the living daylights out of Americaâ€™s healthcare system.

Charles Woods, father of Tyrone Woods, one of the two former Navy SEALs who lost their lives in the 9/11 terrorist attack in Benghazi, is demanding answers as to why, if the White House Situation Room was watching Americans die in real time, did they decide to do nothing to stop it? The grieving father’s question: “Who Made the Decision Not to Save My Son?”
According toÂ Mr. Woods, “Apparently even the State Department had aÂ live streamÂ and was aware of their cries for help,” Woods said, “my son wasn’t even there. He was at a safe house about a mile away. He got the distress call; he heard them crying for help; that’s why he and Glen [Doherty] risked their lives to go that extra mile just to take care of the situation.”
In other words, two Navy SEALs were killed doing what they were trained to do. They ignored the command to stand down and chose instead to rush to the aid of those in distress and did so while the State Department and the White House stood by, watching the horror unfold in real time and choosing to do nothing to stop it.
Charles Woods claimsÂ that military officials told him that they could have saved those under attack. But Mr. Woods is convinced that someone higher up gave the order not to send backup. Now, the father of the former Navy SEAL is angry, saying, “We need to find out who it was that gave that command — do not rescue them.”
According toÂ Fox News, “SecurityÂ officersÂ working for the CIA in Benghazi heard the attack on the consulate but were twice told to wait before rushing to the compound.” In addition, “U.S. officials refused when the security team asked for U.S. warplanes to bomb their attackers, which would have meant violating Libyan airspace.” Remember that old Obama adage: better to sodomize, torture, and murder an American Ambassador than dare to violate Libyan airspace.
Nonetheless, in the “fog of war” and in response to prior reports, a CIA spokesperson, under the direction of CIA director and retired General David Petraeus, put out the following statement: “No one at any level in the CIA told anybody not to help those in need; claims to the contrary are simply inaccurate.”
The Obama administration has spentÂ six full weeks blatantly lying, obfuscating, and blaming a low-budget anti-Islamic video for the attack on the U.S. consulate. Now, after dodging questions about whether requests for help were denied by U.S. officials, the Obama administration — more specifically President Barack Obama — is adamantly vowing that his administration will “find out what happened” and discipline those responsible.
Of course he has to say that. However, even if the president didn’t personally instruct security personnel in Benghazi to “stand down,” it’s not at all difficult to imagine an unruffled Obama watching the attack in real time, yawning, executing a sleepy stretch, and saying, “It’s getting late guys, I think I’ll turn in.”
Furthermore, it’s pretty obvious that the sanctity of life isn’t exactly a top priority for pro-choice Barack Obama, whose claim to fame is his belief that some human lives areÂ disposable. Lest we forget, the president is an avid proponent of born-alive babies being left to die, or as he so aptly put it, “looked after” by the doctor that failed to kill them on the first try.
With that in mind, if a disposable human being were being purposely asphyxiated in a burning American consulate in Benghazi by a band of terrorists, perhaps Barack Obama felt that responding to desperate cries for assistance could “burden the original decision” of some other, more significant political goal. After all, the president did once say that a doctor attending to a suffering infant does “burden the original decision of the woman and the physician to induce labor and perform an abortion.”
Therefore, along with Mr. Woods, one can’t help but wonder if some “original decision” might have been undermined if military reinforcements were given the go-ahead to save the lives of the Benghazi four.
But not to worry, though — while consistently evading questions about the tragedy prior to Election Day, Barack Obama is about the business of assuring the American public that “We’re going to gather all the facts, find out exactly what happened, and make sure that it doesn’t happen again, but we’re also going to make sure we bring to justice those who carried out these attacks.”
Wow! Coincidentally, that is exactly what a concerned American public is planning to do too, Mr. President. At all costs, the facts will be gathered as to what really happened that ill-fated night in Benghazi, as well as what actions occurred in the White House Situation Room during the seven-hour attack. And rest assured, Mr. President, those who carried out those attacks and anyone who aided and abetted the enemy in the senseless murder of four Americans will be found and brought to justice.
Nancy Pelosi is fighting for her political life. She is changing stories faster than she jumped out of her seat to clap for Obama at the State of the Union address. Since 2007, Pelosi has been snuggled up, comfy cozy in the fetal position in the womb of the Speaker of the House chair grasping the gavelÂ to her breast like a security blanket.Â However, over the last few days Mrs. Pelosi has been also hanging onto a political umbilical cord for dear life.
Mother Pelosi has a reputation as an empathetic icon for the Left. She is the epitome of maternal kindness publicly condemning the use of â€˜harsh interrogation techniquesâ€™ as morally reprehensible. She even called for the prosecution of U.S. government officials who authorized â€˜torture techniquesâ€™ on our nationâ€™s enemies.
Juxtaposed against her concern for terrorists, Pelosi is so Liberal that even NARAL gave her a 100% on abortion rights. For a Leftie that is the highest tribute in the party. It is the abortion rights Grammy award, which is a red carpet honor. If terrorists were fetusâ€™, Nancy would approve of their torture. Yet, when it comes to real live terrorists, Nancy Pelosi is the quintessence of compassion.
Obama condemned the use of torture during the Bush Administration and moved to declassify the memos outlining enhanced interrogation techniques.Â A question arose as to how much Congress, and specifically Ms. Pelosi, knew about the techniques that were authorized to gain information from the likes ofÂ Abu Zubayah and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed. Nancy responded to the queries saying that the CIA never briefed her on enhanced interrogation techniques. Then an intelligence report surfaced stating that she was certainly briefed on the matter in 2002. The political umbilical cord was beginning to wrap around her neck. Nancy then changed her story purportingÂ the CIA hadÂ informed her in 2003 but told her water boarding was â€œnot being employed.â€ Nancy was obviously relieved being the staunch terrorist Protectoress she is.
Pro-choice advocates of Nancyâ€™s caliber have such a high moral code that their word is truth. Itâ€™s a known fact they always put their own best interest last!Â Readjusting from the breach position, Nancy now claims that Central Intelligence made a concerted effort, together with the Bush Administration, to lead Congress astray on the issue.Â Nancy innocent, everyone else, guilty.
Nancy is so confident in Democratic power on the Hill and the Partyâ€™s love for her that sheâ€™s decided to take on Central Intelligence and accuse them of lying to Congress. Yet, the silence on the Left is deafening and leads one to surmise the Party might be preparing to expunge the occupant of the lofty Congressional throne in chambers by allowing the Speaker to lie herself out of the Speakership.
We may very well be witnessing the public political abortion of Nancy Pelosi.
Liberals oftentimes support policies, like abortion, but never fully think through the ramifications of their stances on their own lives. With corrupt people depravity knows no boundaries. They can want you one day and abort you the next. Liberals are notoriously selfish. If inconvenienced or threatened in their personal lives or in their political careers they do not vacillate, the problem is justifiably and promptly disposed of, which appears to be Ms. Pelosiâ€™s impending fate.
Over the last few days, Nancy has become a tiny littleÂ bit of an inconvenience, sort of like an unplanned pregnancy for a first-year college student, something that Liberals would encourage is better quietly â€œTaken care of!â€ The political party that has no problem purging millions of infants from the womb certainly would have nary a compunction suctioning the Speaker of the House from her chamber podium if need be. Pelosi continues to lie, while claiming she was lied to. The harbinger of â€œBush liedâ€ is now claiming the CIA lied to her about water boarding, butÂ offers Bush no mercy.
Nancy denying she was briefed or had any idea about water boarding as a means of enhanced interrogation can be likened to frolicking wildly at a party, blowing out the candles and gorging on chocolate cake and then with butter creamÂ all over your face pretending you havenâ€™t a clue how it got there.
Much to her surprise Nancy is about to become the victim of her own degenerate belief system. Sort of like a cheating husband who divorces his wife and marries his girlfriend and then is shocked when his new wife cheats on him. Not because itâ€™s payback but because anyone who would date a married man is not exactly the bastion of morality themselves. And so it is with Nancy. By Democrats refusing to defend the Speaker, Nancy is about to witness her beloved party assist in aborting her.Â If theyâ€˜d do it to Juniorâ€¦they will do it to Nancy!
She admitted in 2003 she knew about water boarding but didnâ€™t fully understand the technique. The CIA didnâ€™t explain water boarding to her liking so sheâ€™s not responsible? Nancy couldnâ€™t quite grasp the concept of that what they said they were going to do, they actually did?Â Former CIA Director, Porter Goss wrote in the Wall Street Journal, â€œI am slack jawed to read that members claim to have not understood that the techniques on which they were briefed were to actually be employed; or that specific techniques such as â€œwater boardingâ€ were never mentioned.â€
Nancyâ€™s inability to comprehend interrogation techniques explains a lot about her support, or lack thereof, for radical leftist policies such as abortion and enhanced interrogation. Pelosi probably disapproves of water boarding for terrorists but supports brutal partial birth abortion because she does not identify with the technique. Nancy doesnâ€™t understand what torture is because sheâ€™s fine with saline burning the skin off infants but opposes walling mass murderers. No one explained to the Speaker the procedure of chopping up defenseless, unborn babies with a razor-like scalpel, which is why she is fine with D&C curettage but has a problem with sleep deprivation for terrorists? Nancy must need a little more clarification about caterpillars in small spaces with wild-eyed Jihadists, as compared with the piece-by-piece suctioning of a small, defenseless child from the womb.
Regardless, even if Nancy figures it all out, it may be too late to save her from the inevitable. Like most victims of abortion, the decision is out of her handsâ€¦itâ€™s not her choice. Over the next few days we very well may see the Democratic Party drive itself over to the political Planned Parenthood and sign itself in. The Democrats will be in the waiting room while Nancy thrashes around in the political womb, twitching, shaking and fighting for her political life. But as any fetus destined for destruction knows, once Mom is at the clinic the deed is as good as done. Nancy, quivering and stammering while defending herself at the press conference accusing the CIA of lying and misleading her all but positioned the Democratic Party on the table for the procedure.
Life has a way of meting out justice on its own. If silence from the Democrats means anything it doesnâ€™t seem hopeful for zygote Pelosi. As the Democratic party changes into its dressing gown and heads towards those double doors, Nancy is about to become a victim of the policies and statements sheâ€™s been proudly supporting as the San Francisco Liberal, gavel-waving, maven of Capitol Hill.
Nancy accused the innocent of lyingâ€¦she was caught in a bigger lie. She persuaded others to flush their unborn â€¦the Capitol Hill Party where sheâ€™s been securely huddled will sluice their womb of her inconvenient, disingenuous, troublesome self. Nancy is about to find out that Liberals justify eating their own, killing their young and purging their own flesh and blood and will do the same to her without ever giving Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi even the tiniest second thought.
Reflecting on the events of September 11th, 2001 reminds us that the victims who died or were injured at the hands of fanatical jihad warriors were the ones who were tortured, not the perpetrators. After the attack, captured al Qaeda leaders, Sheikh Mohammed and Abu Zubaydah, continued to arrogantly, â€œâ€¦celebrate the destruction of the World Trade Centerâ€ and sneer, along with Osama Bin Laden, at the grisly types of death and injury thousands suffered at the hands of theMujahedinbrotherhood.
Official documents show that while incarcerated both Zubaydah and Sheikh Mohammed lived comfortably and were always treated respectfully and humanely by their American captors. The kindness extended them did nothing to change their level of dedication to slaughter. Calm and unrepentant Zubaydah steadfastly remained, â€œâ€¦devoted to jihadâ€¦expressing unabated desire to kill Americans and Jews.â€
The statistical data from 9-11 exposes how far both men went in dedication to furthering their cause.Â Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Abu Zubaydah actively assisted in plotting the death of 2,819 innocent people, of whom only 289 maimed bodies were found intact, rejoicing together that 19,858 body parts were strewn throughout 1,506,124 pounds of debris.Â American jihad resulted in the dead suffering the disrespect of having their â€œâ€¦body partsâ€¦torsos and chunks of fleshâ€ strewn in the streets together with â€œâ€¦airplane landing gear and car fires.â€
Throughout the Bush years, policy attempted to prevent a similar devastating hit and took whatever measures necessary to protect the American people from having to suffer a catastrophe of such magnitude again. Â Enhanced interrogation was one of tools in the security cache that mined information from high value prisoners who were known to have key information that could save American lives.
The Bush Administration, in conjunction with CIA officials, believed that both Zubaydah and Sheikh Mohammed, â€œâ€¦had additional information they refused to divulgeâ€¦regarding terrorist networks in the United States.â€Â In an effort to ascertain critical intelligence the CIA decided â€œincreased pressureâ€ would successfully weaken the high value detaineeâ€™s â€œstrong resolveâ€ and provide the government with crucial information.Â It wasnâ€™t until being subjected to enhanced interrogation that Abu Zubaydah gave up key details, which led to high profile terrorist Khalid Sheikh Mohammedâ€™s eventual capture.
Like his cohort, Sheikh Mohammed refused to respond to inquiries about impending plots and sadistically warned his inquisitors that “Soon, they will know.“Â Without enhancement interrogation methods the CIA would have been ineffective in convincing the obstinate Jihadist to confess to managing â€œa cell for the production of biological weapons, such as anthrax.â€ Mohammedâ€™s stress induced collaboration disrupted the Padilla plan to detonate a “dirty bombâ€ on American soiland prevented a “second wave” plot to crash a hijacked airliner into Los Angeles.Â Thanks to the forced cooperation of both Zubaydah and Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, American lives were saved.
Thetypes of enhanced interrogation declassified in the controversial memos include walling.Â Walling pulls the detainee forward and then pushes them back so their shoulders bounce off a false, flexible wall creating a loud intimidating sound.Â Unlike the explosion that shook the world when planes shattered through the World Trade Towers, walling is risk-free.
Through release of the memos mea culpas were offered for the use of confinement.Â Cramped confinement subjects the suspect to a dark, restricted space with the suggestion of a buzzing insect that is really a harmless caterpillar.Â Upon release, the captive is promptly attended to by a physician; a luxury those prematurely confined to their final resting place on 9-11 did not have the benefit of.
In comparison, terrorist detainee Khalid Sheikh Mohammedâ€™s interrogation sessions were quite unlike the type of imprisonment Port Authority officers experienced when trapped thirty-feet beneath the rubble of the World Trade Center for twenty-two hours.Â They were choked by dust and smoke and fire-balls tumbled into the hole that held their crushed bodies. Miraculously rescued from the fiery pile, one officer spent six-weeks in a medically induced coma, endured thirty surgeries and suffered extensive skin grafting to save his limbs.
Terrorists committed to Islamâ€™s domination furthered their goal, on September 11th, by successfully torturing innocent victims who were dying of smoke inhalation, immolated or crushed under tons of cement. These sufferers endured so much pain that â€œâ€¦the skin on their bodies burnt off.â€Â If given the choice of being forcibly questioned or being singed to the bone by a huge meteor-like fireball flashing out from a freight elevator shaft, 9-11 victims would prefer enhanced interrogation over terror, for sure.
Any suggestion that induced muscle fatigue is either immoral or inhumane renders America impotent as compared to an enemy who casually decapitates innocent people in an attempt to portray potency and commitment to higher ideals. The Presidentâ€™s policy suggests that even if benign forms of intimidation have proven effective in preventing nuclear or biological weapons from being detonated in American cities, its use still remains criminal.
The most divisive of all techniques white towel, water boarding or simulated drowning, was used by our CIA because it worked, â€œâ€¦after just 35 seconds under waterâ€ Zubaydah submitted information, which aided our nation in the world-wide war on terror and subverted plots here in the United States.Â The divisive memos stated that exposure to enhanced questioning worked to convince high value detainees to cooperate. â€œKSM and Zubaydah were pivotal sources because of their ability and willingness to provide â€¦ analysis and speculation about the capabilities, methodologies and mindsets of terrorists,â€ very possibly their aid was the primary reason Americans have not been attacked since September 11th.
Khalid Sheikh Mohammed and Zubaydah reveled in Americans suffering.Â They praised Allah when desperate people chose to leap hundreds of floors to their deaths.Â The decision to declare war on Bushâ€™s policies, and to publicly condemn effective coercion techniques, suggests to the world that al Qaeda warriorsâ€™ comfort levels take precedence over protecting American lives.
The President appears to be desperate for an opportunity to appease a befuddled sense of right and wrong. Rather than quelling the storm he is planning to extend the torture debate by releasing additional photos of non-sanctioned prisoner abuse in Iraq and Afghanistan.Â Obamaâ€™s torture policy makes him complicit in reaffirming antipathy toward America and jeopardizes eight years of successful national security.
