Allen West: Folks, when I saw what Obama did, with only 40 days left, I found myself ROTFLMAO

Former Congressman Allen West addresses the Obama legacy in this article. Mr. West is at his snarky best as he talks about the 66 page Obama document on the use of force. Not a point is missed in covering the total lack of reality in how Obama has seen his legacy. The Dirty Harry quote is ao right on. Read and enjoy.

As Written By Allen B. West:

How many of you recall the ol’ Clint Eastwood San Francisco detective movie series based on his character Harry Callahan, infamously known as “Dirty Harry”? Man, we all grew up wanting to shoot a .44 Magnum; that was a peacemaker of a handgun. But what I remember most are Clint’s famous one liners; he had a simple way with words. One of my favorites was, “A man’s got to know his limitations,” and that line is quite apropos for our story here, but with a twist. May I rebrand that line for one Barack Obama, “A man’s got to know when he’s irrelevant.”

As reported by the Washington Post, On the eve of a new administration that has promised more aggressive counterterrorism operations, the Obama White House has released a lengthy compendium of its own policies governing the use of force. 

The 61-page document outlines eight years of the administration’s legal opinions, executive orders and military directives. In a strong defense of the administration’s actions, it lists rules for lethal drones and terrorist detention and describes the international and domestic law that undergirds them.

Such rules are important to reduce “the risk of an ill-considered decision,” President Obama wrote in an introduction to the document. When making policy on war and peace, he wrote, it was critical to disclose “as much information as possible to the public . . . so that an informed public can scrutinize our actions and hold us to account.” 

Obama said that, together with the report, he was issuing a presidential memorandum “that encourages future Administrations to build on this report and carry forward the principles of transparency it represents.” The memorandum, he said, asks for it to be updated by the National Security Council staff at least on an annual basis and released to the public. 

There is no statutory requirement for the document, titled “Report on the Legal and Policy Frameworks Guiding the United States’ Use of Military Force and Related National Security Operations,” and no obligation to make it public.

A senior administration official said that the White House-compiled report had “been in the works” since before the election and is not targeted at the incoming Trump administration, which will be led by a president who has spoken approvingly of using torture. 

“Putting it together and presenting it to the next administration, it would be a helpful guidebook, certainly,” said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity in advance of the official release. “But it wouldn’t have the same import as informing the American public.”

Folks, when I read this story, I found myself ROTFLMAO, and I mean side-splitting laughing. Coming off his foolishly arrogant statement in Peru about how he’d continue to speak out on values, Barack Obama has to be suffering from such delusional depression realizing we don’t give a damn what he thinks. Obama is a lost soul in search of relevance, as he’s 43 days from the cold hard truth that his existence as president, his legacy, is embodied in one Donald J. Trump.

And so, as Clint Eastwood would say, “Barack, you got to know your limitations.” Can you believe, the Obama administration published a policy on the use of force? Yes, this was a waste of government paper, considering such great Obama achievements as the “reset button” and his “Semper Gumby” approach to foreign policy. Sixty-one pages of military directives, like, let’s all withdraw and create a vacuum in Iraq. Or how about the classic, “ISIS is not Islamic” — coupled with “ISIS is a jayvee team.”

Now, I know the Taliban rates as one of the great military directives of Obama, “I hereby declare combat operations ended in Afghanistan” — yep, that was a doozy. Or how about Mr. Tough Guy Obama drawing a “red line” in Syria — oops, in case y’all haven’t been paying attention, the “rebels” are about to surrender in Aleppo.

Included in this fairy tale bedtime story are just great tales on terrorist detention such as how to get back a single American deserter in exchange for five senior Taliban leaders. And to think, the foreword was written by Obama himself, where he tells us about the risk of an ill-considered decision, this coming from the man whose foreign policy and national security strategy was based upon the venerable maxim of “don’t do stupid s!@t.”

Hmm, ill-considered decisions, you mean like addressing Cairo University and requesting the Muslim Brotherhood to be front and center? Or, what about that dubious decision to support Islamic jihadists in Libya, and enable the destabilization of an entire country? Or the infamous pivot to the Pacific, just in time to allow China to build manmade islands and employ military weapons. One of my favorites was to supply the Ukrainian Army with socks, while the Russians were knocking at the door — yep, that was a great decision and proper use of force.

And get this one… Obama states, “it was critical to disclose as much information as possible to the public…so that an informed public can scrutinize our actions and hold us to account.” REALLY? Dude, YGTBSM! So, Benghazi was all about a crude anti-Muslim video? And Bowe Bergdahl served with honor and distinction? Told ya I was on the floor laughing so hard I cramped. It was Obama’s SecState John Kerry who once claimed, “the media would do us all a service if it ignored terrorism, people wouldn’t know what’s going on.” 

Ladies and Gents, you cannot make this stuff up, they actually wrote a document that said this stuff — and they are serious. See, the problem with liberal progressive socialists is that they talk to each other, and as Forest Gump once said, “stupid is as stupid does.” They fail to realize that there’s an entire contingent of us that actually read and have functioning brains.

Obama is searching for a place, relevance, and the fact that he issued a presidential memorandum that “encourages future Administrations to build on this report and carry forward the principles of transparency it represents” — what a wheel barrel of bovine excrement. No one’s going to read this collection of self-absorbed bloviating. Heck, it was probably written by that brilliant literary scholar, Deputy National Security Adviser, Ben Rhodes; he is a brilliant storyteller, certainly not an expert in national security strategy.

And the National Security Adviser is one Susan Rice… Did she write anything for this tale — oops, sorry, report. Does the Obama administration really believe that anyone in the Trump administration is going to read this collection of fake news stories? Well, actually, if you’re suffering from insomnia, this may be the ticket to put you right to sleep — nah, you’ll be laughing too hard.

And who is Obama to say in his presidential memorandum that this report should be updated by the National Security Council staff on an annual basis? Does he truly believe LTG Flynn or KT McFarland are going to waste their time on this folly?

Sadly, we’re witnessing the meltdown of “No drama” Obama. He’s a man being hit with the cold wind of the reality that his eight years have been inconsequential, irrelevant and uninteresting. So the Obama administration took this guidebook — would’ve been better to make a coloring book — that they obviously thought would be handed over to Hillary Clinton, and instead of just not telling anyone, they released it.

Barack Obama just does not comprehend, Hillary Clinton’s loss had nothing to do with Fox News, crude nationalism or any other made-up …

    Yet, the truth of 8 yrs of O did do damage. Lots of damage. He single highhandedly destroyed the unity of our nation. He almost ended national sovereignty.
    He usurped a Presidency, twice. He fooled a nation and he will one day write the book that proclaims that lie and many others (all his sealed records). He lied, and lied, and lied all the while speaking of transparency. He mocked the country, it’s people, it’s heritage and values. He spit on it whenever he left it to go and defame it to others. He is still doing this.
    And he defamed the Christian God he professed to believe in by giving heed to Gay pride month, and coloring his own home in the image of the god he actually does serve.
    We can laugh at his narcissistic mentality now that he is almost gone, but we cannot undo all the damage he accomplished in 8 years. The famous words, “A date that will live in infamy” circa 2016 is that of Jan 20th 2009 when America lost it’s mind.

      And everything, he has done, is a sin.

    As most of you know, Obama is, IMHO, a narcissist. One thing that happens to a narcissist….he has to have adoration. If he loses that adoration, he could become insane! With his time almost up..(please Lord)….he is making sure he stays in control. Every time he blames someone else for his poor results…he is projecting. What is he projecting? Himself and his failings..onto someone else.

    For him to say there have been no terrorist incidences, in the USA…during his “reign”…was another ROFL situation!

    Narcissists are also consummate liars!

    I ignore this insignificant, poor excuse for a president. What a lesson we have learned by having such a stooge in the Oval office. It’s going to take years to repair the damage. Some will still idolize him, but the majority of us will celebrate seeing the backs of him and his crowd for the last time.

      If only, what you wrote came true. I’m concerned no amount of “Chemo” will cure the cancer of those who do not believe in our great Constitutional Representative Republic. We must be more vigilent now than ever.

      Honestly I think Obama’s greatest achievement was his socialist over reach that led enough Americans to finally wake up and vote to keep the Hildabeast out of office. You are very correct to point out it will take MANY years to correct the damage. We did not get into this fix over night. Both the bushies were socialists and of course our current failed socialist ideologue. We may be decades fixing this nightmare.

  • Jay Pierre

    Wow, Excellent article. I really did have hope Obama would seek to bring our nation together and work to improve our economy for ALL Americans. Unfortunately he turned out to be a socialist ideologue of the worst kind. He daily demonstrated a naivete that is stunning in someone that had the opportunity to live overseas and attend the best American universities. Sad commentary on the state of our higher education system. Now we have shed ourselves of his type of socialism and hopefully make a dramatic turnaround.
