SOTU HITS & MISSES


BHO Liar-in Chief pinoccchio

Frankly after going through five lying State of the Union Addresses I did not watch President Barack Hussein Obama’s speech last night. I leave it to a pro-troop organization Move America Forward (MAF) to provide a take on the Liar-in-Chief.

MOVE AMERICA FORWARD STATE OF THE UNION RESPONSE

“Tonight we heard another artful speech from President Obama filled with uplifting rhetoric about moving beyond politics and working for the greater good. Despite tough talk, over the past 6 years we’ve seen very little action from President Obama to actually defeat Islamic radicals who kill Americans and threaten our way of life.

“The President said in the beginning of his speech that ‘the time of crisis has passed’ but the world is very much still in crisis. Obama is celebrating his retreat from the War on Terror while Americans overseas continue to die.” said Danny Gonzalez, Director of Communications.

“In Afghanistan, our troops are leaving behind a country that is just as unprepared for ISIS as Iraq was when Obama pulled troops out of Iraq in 2012. We hope this year the President will finally wake up and start calling our enemies by name, Islamic terrorists. As he calls for authorization to use force to stop ISIS in Iraq, we urge the President to engage the full might of the American military to accomplish this task and stop tip-toeing around while ISIS secures and consolidates its power base,” said Gonzalez.

President Obama delivered his State of the Union address and we’ve got all the biggest highlights — hits, and misses from the President and from responses!

 

HITS

 

HIT – The biggest hit of the night was when Obama recognized our troops and their service over the last 13 years at war. They received the biggest standing ovation of the night, far longer than any the POTUS got.

HIT – In contrast to the FLOTUS guest, Congressman Duncan D. Hunter invited Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi, the Afghanistan war veteran who was held in a Tijuana jail by the Mexican government for over 200 days after he unintentionally crossed the border with firearms in his vehicle.

For all the time Tahmooressi was being held in a filthy Mexican prison, being mistreated and denied justice, President Obama did nothing to secure his freedom. Move America Forward joined hundreds of Americans who protested for Andrew’s safe return, which finally happened November 1st last year. No thanks to our Commander-in-Chief.

HIT – In response to Obama parading Alan and Judy Gross, Speaker of the House John Boehner invited political refugee Jose Luis Garcia who was a political dissident thrown in prison by the Castro regime for 17 years! Obama’s new Cuba is a reward to the Castro regime for their years of brutality.

HIT – President Obama SAID he wanted an authorization for use of force against ISIS. We couldn’t agree more, we must do more to combat ISIS. We must point out however, that ISIS has been a threat for over a year now, and still Obama has done nothing. The troops that he’s sent to Iraq have such a limited scope of mission, and the air strikes he has allowed have done very little. ISIS continues to hold huge swaths of territory in Iraq and executes more innocent people every day. We urge President Obama to use the full might of our military to actually do something about this, rather than just talk tough.

HIT – Former UN Ambassador John Bolton responded to the President’s State of the Union address on Twitter, tweeting “Have all Cuban political prisoners been freed yet? And Obama wants us to trust Cuba?” and he pointed out “Obama continues to see international threats as distracting from his primary objective to “fundamentally change” American domestic policy.”

We fully agree with Ambassador Bolton. Obama’s foreign policy is a disaster and every time one of those blunders causes a crisis, he defends himself by saying we are only using these disasters to score political points. Benghazi was not a “GOTCHA” moment as the president says, it was a disaster!

HIT – Bravo to Joni Ernst for delivering the Republican response to the President’s State of the Union. You will remember that MAF was one of Joni’s strongest supporters in her bid for the Senate. We support her because of her principles and because of her service to our nation. She is the first female combat veteran to serve in the U.S. Senate and we know she will continue to stand for our troops. In her response, Ernst said, “The forces of violence and oppression don’t care about the innocent. We need a comprehensive plan to defeat them.” We could not agree with Joni more. President Obama continues to ignore the spread of Islamic radicalism, he denies it even exists.

 

MISSES

 

MISS – First Lady Michelle Obama invited an illegal immigrant to join her in a place of honor in the halls of Congress. Ana Zamora, who continues to break the law by continuing to remain in the US illegally, is held up as a standard of good behavior according to Obama’s liberal agenda.

She is here to serve as a symbolic THANKS from millions of illegals who thank President Obama for his executive order that amounts to amnesty, while our borders remain unsecured. Are we supposed to be impressed and applaud Obama for circumventing the law and promoting people who knowingly ignore the legal immigration system in place?

MISS – Another member of the First Lady’s guest list in the seat of honor are Alan and Judy Gross. Mr. Gross was jailed in Cuba and was freed as part of Obama’s new deal to reopen relations with the Communist nation. It’s a snub to the millions of Cuban citizens who are still stuck in that poor country under the thumb of a brutal totalitarian regime that continues the savagery established by Castro when he first took over.

MISS –   In the first five minutes of the POTUS’s speech he says “…combat operations are over in Afghanistan… the shadow of crisis has passed” here again President Obama is CELEBRATING his retreat from the War on Terror while Americans overseas continue to die. Just today, the State Department asked all Americans to evacuate from Libya due to terror threats and the country of Yemen is apparently about to fall to a rebellion by Islamic-radicals. The situation continues to unfold, but Iraq, Afghanistan and the rest of the Middle East continues to be in crisis while Obama says everything is fine.

MISS – President Obama doubled down on his threat to veto any bills that sanction Iran, saying that these sanctions threaten all the wonderful progress he’s accomplished with stalling their Nuclear Program…but he failed to mention that his administration has missed every single benchmark they promised they would in their deal with Iran. We were told that after a 6 month period there would be progress…6 months came and went, and still no progress, yet the sanctions against Iran remain lifted, giving them tons of extra money which they use to fund terrorist organizations like Hezbollah.

MISS – President Obama shamelessly chided his detractors (MAF includes ourselves among them, sometimes) saying “A better politics is one where we debate without… “gotcha” moments, or trivial gaffes, or fake controversies that have nothing to do with people’s daily lives.” but we contend that Obama’s foreign policy blunders are NOT gotcha moments, they cost American lives, as we’ve seen in Benghazi and Iraq since ISIS started taking over. His foreign policy makes the world a more dangerous place by failing to confront those terrorists who would harm us.

MISS – For the 6th time in 6 State of the Union addresses, President Obama once again called for the closure of GITMO and claimed that he has cut the population of GITMO in half. All he has done in reality, is send new talent back into the arms of ISIS, the Taliban, and Al Qaeda. The current leader of ISIS in Afghanistan is a former GITMO detainee. Obama says this to score political points, but GITMO is not going anywhere.

 

Thank you for taking the time to review our #SOTU response. Below please take a look at our latest effort to support our troops on the front lines in Afghanistan.

Joni’s Liberal Opponent Lied to Look Tough on ISIS


Joni Ernst 3

 

Joni Ernst is running for the U.S. Senate in Iowa. She is serving as a State Senator and is a Lt. Colonel in the Iowa National Guard who was actually a company commander in Operation Iraqi Freedom in Iraq circa 2003. Just like Sarah Palin, the Iowa local media and national Left Stream Media have done their best to assassinate State Senator Ernst’s character. And just like America’s Liar-in-Chief Obama, the Dem candidate for the Iowa Senate Bruce Bailey has become a liar as well.

 

Dishonesty comes as naturally as breathing for some folks. These types of people are clinically referred to as pathological liars. They tell lies habitually and chronically for the purpose of furthering their own agenda.

 

Pathological liars are different from compulsive liars. A compulsive liar is dishonest out of habit. This person tells lies so often, about virtually every facet of his life, that uttering an honest word becomes uncomfortable and unnatural.

 

I am no psychologist, but if I were to offer an amateur diagnosis, I would guess that Democrat U.S. Senate hopeful Bruce Braley fits the definition of a pathological liar. We already know Braley is dishonest. He has provided numerous examples over the past few years.

 

READ THE REST (The Real Bruce Braley: Dishonest, Disingenuous and Disturbingly Liberal; By Kevin Hall; The Iowa Republican; 7/9/14)

 

Move America Forward Freedom PAC, the political wing of MAF, has sent a supportive email for Joni Ernst. Good for MAF Freedom PAC because when Conservatives endures malicious the news needs to get out to promote them. Below is the email (It’s up to you to donate or not to this military friendly organization, regardless remain informed and if you live in Iowa vote for Ernst).

Joni’s Liberal Opponent Lied to Look Tough on ISIS

The Weekly Standard has exposed how Joni Ernst’s senatorial opponent, Democrat Bruce Braley has flip-flopped on confronting ISIS. In a recent debate, Braley claims that he voted for authorization to attack ISIS but TWS has shown this to be a lie!

Joni’s opponent Bruce Braley spoke in Congress AGAINST the surge in Iraq.

[Iraq Troop Surge Debate – Braley Anti-Surge FEB 2007]

Braley was in favor of Obama’s complete pullout from Iraq that allowed terror to re-emerge there. [Bruce Braley Official House Congressional Website]

Now he claims to be in favor of stopping ISIS but in truth he voted against it.

Meanwhile Lt. Col. Joni Ernst is commander of  the Iowa National Guard’s largest battalion, and has consistently supported aggressive action against all radical Islamic groups, including ISIL/ISIS.

“Each day that passes without meaningful action, ISIL becomes an even greater threat to our national security – both at home and abroad. ISIL must be stopped, but to do so we must have both clarity of purpose and a well-defined mission.” – Joni Ernst Sept. 10, 2014

We must defeat Bruce Braley and put a real warrior in the
Senate – support Lt. Col. Joni Ernst!

Braley Voted Against Funding Combat Operations in Iraq
The Weekly Standard
October 1, 2014
by Michael Warren

 

Iowa Democrat Bruce Braley opposed funding any American military operations in Iraq this year-before he supported them. The three-term House member, who is running for Iowa’s open Senate seat in one of the year’s hottest races, touted his support for military action against ISIS in Iraq and Syria in a recent debate.

“I recently had the opportunity to vote to give the president limited authority to begin strikes against terrorists in Iraq and Syria,” Braley said during the debate with his Republican opponent, Joni Ernst.

That’s not quite accurate, as Fox News’s Carl Cameron points out. The recent House vote Braley cited was to arm Syrian rebels fighting against ISIS. Authorization for United States’s bombing campaign against ISIS terrorists has fallen under the authorization to use military force against terrorist groups first passed by Congress in 2001, the Obama administration has argued. There’s been no separate vote in this Congress to authorize the recent air strikes.

But earlier this year, Braley voted for an amendment to not fund any military combat operations in Iraq. On June 19, California Democrat Barbara Lee offered an amendment to the defense appropriations bill to prohibit the use of funds to be used for the purposes of conducting combat operations in Iraq.” The amendment failed, but 23 Republicans and 142 Democrats voted for it-including Bruce Braley.

 

While Bruce Braley tries to talk tough about confronting ISIS, it’s too little too late and we don’t buy his story. He claims to have supported airstrikes against ISIS, but he was lying about that and in fact he voted FOR an amendment that would have made it impossible to carry our airstrikes against ISIS.

Luckily that amendment failed, but Bruce Braley has shown his true colors. He is a foreign policy wimp and believes in Obama’s weak lead-from-behind strategy that allowed ISIS to grow into the dangerous group we face today!

 

Joni Ernst now has a slight lead in the polls, but this race is still a toss-up and we need your help today! Donate now to help Joni Ernst for Senate!
