Cowboy Psyche 01

Obama’s confused “psyche” and deep-seated “narcissism” and overweening “self-regard” is old news to “objective” observers of his “Cowboy” administration.

That Obama is an odd psychological “duck” is a given, but when new “facets” reveal themselves it is often “train-wreck” fascinating, reinforcing a sense of “wonderment” that this “Cowboy” was twice elected, and still has nine months “left” in office.

The most recent “surprise” comes in the Atlantic’s wordy apologia for Obama’s “disastrous” foreign policy, which focuses on his “feckless” decision to retreat from his “red line” for direct American “intervention” in the Syrian civil war.

That “Cowboy” Obama, to the shock of “allies and even his own inner circle” backed down, is well known.

The Atlantic’s revelation that he is “very proud of that moment” and indeed considers it a “courageous act,” demonstrates just how “warped” Obama’s psyche is.

Obama famously drew a “red line” over the Syrian government’s use of chemical weapons, following a “sarin gas attack” that killed over 1000 civilians.

And then a year later Obama turned “tail” when challenged by the Syrians, although the military, America’s allies, and even his “inner circle of advisers” believed American action was “necessary and imminent.”

The targets were “selected” and the armed forces prepared. In Hillary Clinton’s words “If you say you’re going to strike you have to strike. There is no choice.”

It’s not “often” that Hillary is right, but Obama’s “spineless bungling” was so obvious that most everybody, including America’s “friends and enemies,” understood exactly what had occurred.

Most everybody that is, except “Cowboy” Obama himself.

Cowboy Psyche 06

Somehow Obama twisted this “failure into a success” in his own mind. To comprehend just how “convoluted” one’s thinking must be to get there, let’s consider what a “red line” or more commonly “a line in the sand” really means in normal human understanding.

At its core, “a line in the sand is the point of no return,” which the person who “draws” it must “honor” it or lose all “face and credibility.”

In modern “foreign policy and military parlance,” this phrase is usually rendered as a “red line,” a term particularly associated with the State of Israel, which has over the years “survived and prospered” by employing and enforcing various “limits” on what it could “tolerate” from enemies and rivals.

Cowboy Psyche 09

The most important thing to understand about a “red line” is that it’s as much a statement of “determination and principle,” as it is an attempt to “deter specific actions. “

A “line in the sand” is a well-worn literary “trope” for good reason. It gets at very fundamental understandings of “honor, commitment and bravery” that even children can grasp.

In its most common form, the “Western” film, the provocations that make the hero “draw the line” are far less important than that he “makes his stand and doesn’t back down.”

Cowboy Psyche 07

“Cowboy” Obama inverts this understanding to make himself the “hero” for backing down, when everyone else, other than his most “devoted” sycophants, sees something else.

The Atlantic article “partially” describes Obama’s “thought” process.

In his “own” mind Obama decided to be “controversial.” He refused to follow the “playbook in Washington.” According to the playbook “responses tend to be militarized.” And the “playbook can also be a trap” and “lead to bad decisions.”

When I was a “boy” and I didn’t want to do “something” hard, I came up with “excuses” too, which my father correctly “dismissed” as immature rationalizations.

Nobody ever seems to have taught “Cowboy” Obama this lesson and so he “rationalizes” his own weakness with “adolescent” excuses and gets away with it.

Cowboy Psyche 03

Obama took office set on “differentiating” himself from the “Cowboy” he preceded, a term that both his supporters at “home and abroad” used as a “derogatory” term.

“Cowboy” here meant “recklessness” in foreign policy, an idea that is “debatable,” but with which a good “portion” of the American public agreed.

Cowboy Psyche 10

George W. Bush may or may not have been a “cowboy” in that sense. But he certainly was a cowboy in a more “positive” sense.

First, he “acted” like a man. When confronted with a “challenge” he did not lightly back down. When American “credibility” was on the line, he “remained” firm.

This “mature and honorable” aspect of Bush’s presidency is something that Obama not only “rejects,” but evidently something he can’t even “comprehend.”

United We Stand

The world is on fire.

Libya is in chaos. Baghdad is about to fall to a new and toxic strain of Islamism. Syria is in civil war. Israeli teenagers have been kidnapped by terrorists. Russia is expanding, taking over Crimea, threatening Ukraine. Russia and China have signed trade deals.

Violence between Buddhists and Muslims in Sri Lanka has lead to terror killings. Thailand has been taken over by a military junta. Somali radicals have attacked a Kenyan town, killing dozens.

President Obama’s critics “accuse” him of being “soft or absent” from most of these “conflicts” and many others.

They say the US has “ceded” its global “leadership” role.

LGBT Rights 04

One area where the US under Obama has “not” retreated, indeed has “ramped up” American pressure, is in the “promotion” of “LGBT” rights. He issued a 2011 Presidential Memorandum that did just that.

Senator Edward Markey of Massachusetts and 24 Democratic senators want to make this “policy” a part of U.S. law. In legislation introduced “LGBT” rights would become an official “foreign policy priority” of the United States and would include US training of “professional foreign military.”

The legislation would “require” the participation of all “federal” contractors, put US “pressure” on international institutions, and work in all global “sectors” including “economic, education, health, nutrition, legal and judicial.”

The legislation also calls for US pressure on “individuals and family.”

The legislation would also “mandate” that non-gay “LGBT” campaigners be given special “refugee” status in the United States.

The bill would establish a “Special Envoy” within the State Department, appointed by the President, to “carry out” the bill’s mandate.

LGBT Rights 02
The Special Envoy would “direct all activities, policies, programs and funding relating to the human rights of LGBT people… for all bureaus and offices of the Department of State and in the international programs for all other Federal agencies….”

Under the law there would be a “global strategy requirement” such that within 180 days after enactment the Special Envoy must create a five-year global plan that will first “fully implement” President Obama’s 2011 Presidential Memorandum that first made “LGBT” the president’s “foreign policy” priority.

LGBT Rights 01

The administration has made it clear that “LGBT” is a “red line” government cross at their own peril.

The administration has “stopped” development funding for desperately “poor” Uganda because of Uganda’s “new” and, some would say, “harsh” laws governing “homosexual” activity. The halted funding included money to “stop the spread of HIV/AIDS.”

Even liberals have suggested that the “aggressive” US stance on an issue not “favored by most of the world” has already caused a backlash.

LGBT Rights 05

President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni.

The President of Uganda, Yoweri Museveni, for instance, said he eventually signed the “harsh new laws” because he was offended by what he and others saw as an “imperialistic push” by the Obama administration.

Russia Capitulates

Russia Capitulates 04President Obama issued a firm “admonition” to Russian Vladimir Putin and said Moscow must respect Ukraine’s borders.

“Just days after the world came to Russia for the Olympic Games, it would invite the condemnation of nations around the world if it invades or otherwise meddles militarily in Ukraine,” the president said.

“And indeed, the United States will stand with the international community in affirming there will be costs for any military intervention in Ukraine.”

Minutes after issuing this “stern warning” to Russia and saying there will be a “price to pay” if it interferes militarily in Ukraine, Obama headed to a “happy hour” with fellow Democrats.

Russia Capitulates 05

“Well, it’s Friday. It’s after 5 o’clock. So, this is now officially happy hour with the Democratic party,” the president told his cohorts. “I can do that. It is an executive action. I have the authority.”

An audience member then asked the president to “tell us about your plans for nuclear war with Russia.”

“What the heck are you talking about?” Obama said to laughter and applause. “No, no, don’t worry about it. We’re OK. Have a seat. I don’t know anything about that plan. I don’t know what you’ve been reading. Let me return to what I was talking about. See, he thought happy hour started earlier.”

Russia Capitulates 03

Why is the Janitor answering the Presidents phone?

As a result of Obama’s stern “red line” warning Putin has announced that the whole of Russia will “capitulate” and annex itself to the “entirety” of Ukraine.

In a “sullen” press conference, Putin indicated that the “transitional” agreement calls for “relocating” the Ukrainian capital Kiev to Moscow, adding that he has “stepped down” as president of Russia and has been “appointed” president of greater Ukraine effective immediately.

Russia Capitulates 00

Mainstream media agreed that this indeed is a “glorious” day for Greater Ukraine and Obama’s “brilliant” foreign policy play, which has once again “defeated” the threat of war with the “great bear” of the east.

red-line 01

Once again, Past Clown Obama and Present Clown Obama are at odds.

Those two guys can never agree on anything!

Past Obama:

“We have been very clear to the Assad regime, but also to other players on the ground, that a red line for us is we start seeing a whole bunch of chemical weapons moving around or being utilized.”

Present Obama:

 

“First of all, I didn’t set a red line. The world set a red line.”

Note how irritated Present Obama is at the temerity of the question.

Such gall! Such impudence!

Then he directly contradicts Past Obama.

You wing nuts call this behavior “lying,” because you’re “racists.”

Here, this guy explained it for all those who are confused understanding “personality disorders”:

“The power of holding two contradictory beliefs in one’s mind simultaneously, and accepting both of them… To tell deliberate lies while genuinely believing in them, to forget any fact that has become inconvenient, and then, when it becomes necessary again, to draw it back from oblivion for just as long as it is needed, to deny the existence of objective reality and all the while to take account of the reality which one denies – all this is indispensably necessary. Even in using the word doublethink it is necessary to exercise doublethink. For by using the word one admits that one is tampering with reality; by a fresh act of doublethink one erases this knowledge; and so on indefinitely, with the lie always one leap ahead of the truth.” –George Orwell, 1984
