WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama today walked away from a roomful of journalists, leaving Jay Carney to evade numerous media questions about the administration’s semi-secret, closed-door process of killing American citizens who are tied to jihad. The numerous questions were prompted by the release late Monday of the administration’s legal brief explaining why it has the legal and presidential authority to kill overseas Americans in al-Qaida, even without a trial or public due process. “I think you’ve seen in the way that this president
No president in my lifetime has violated so many Federal laws with impunity, nor taken the fantastically narcissistic view that he is a law unto himself. This is the man - who via collateral drone strike damage - has killed some 200 foreign children who we can safely assume were not enemy combatants...and has the cojones to go on television and wax sanctimonious about his ´wisdom which takes precedent over the 2nd Amendment´ because he can point to 20 dead white children?
Impeachment without criminal prosecution is falling short of what´s needed here.
The All-Benificent power of Socialism is thwarted by the Constitution. Thus, the Constitution must be dismantled. This has been the Left´s grand project since the early 20th century. Granting Himself The King the "authority" to kill Americans without trial is just one step in this direction, but an intentional one. A bit of unconstitutional authority here, a bit of unconstitutional authority there - pretty soon no one is able to define where any limits are or should be - and that´s when Himself The King makes the big moves...
Obama could not care less about the spread of Islamofascism. It´s the illegal spread of own power he´s working on here.
The problem here is alqueda could quickly become a "right wing hate group" on American soil.
The media blitz on this is probably a first step into conditioning people to the idea that Obama can become a one man enforcement team at the drop of a hat and for any cause. There´s a method to liberal madness and conditioning the population is a big part of it.
The media ,on every other issue,defends Obama,no matter out outrageous or anti constitutional his actions are. Now all of a sudden they´re bothered by this? i don´t think so.
Obviously the left ca use any hate filled,vile,vitriolic language they want against the right,they have a blank check on it. But at the same time a right winger better keep his mouth shut because he´s inspiring a covert war against our wonderful benevolent government.Have you had your fair shot today?
This is news over illegal aliens projected to cost Obamacare $2 trillion over ten years.there´s no outrage over that at all.
Just imagine the reaction of a conservative president proposing land mines along the border.Every illegal in this country plus the usual liberal suspects would flood the streets with outrage,burning cars,destroying businesses etc.
These are very dark times. The media have been silenced and neutered. The Republicans are huddled with Rove trying to figure out how to become Democrats. The President is a psychotic anti-America freak.
What part of this article shows them getting a clue? They did not question, fell silent when Carney moved on, did not remark that Zip is a lawyer when told the answer required a lawyer and did not squawk when told "no the policy will not be put on the website". This would be a good country for someone to actually start a real newspaper and hire some true journalists. All we have now is sycophants.
How is killing islamists at a funeral or at an outdoor cafe with a drone different from killing them with a high-powered rifle and a sniper? (Beyond the collateral damage, of course) I thought there is a long-standing executive order against targeted assassinations by the government. And I can vividly recall the Left´s outrage when GWB targeted Saddam´s palaces with air strikes to get him and his sons. But at least those people were heads of a criminal state. This drone program is completely illegal, despite what Obama, Holder, and Carney say. They have incrementally expanded it to allow them to "take out" whoever they want, whenever they want. I have no love or sympathy for islamoterrorists. I do have a problem with a drone hit on the 16-year old son of an islamoterrorist (who was already "droned") while sitting in an outdoor cafe minding his own business. And the deaths of the other cafe patrons. Once killing becomes callous and easy with drones, the next step will be drone attacks on US citizens at Tea Party rallies.
It’s against US law to waterboard a foreign terrorist, but it’s legal to summarily kill an American citizen on the president’s kill list. This administration is out of control. It seems, once again, as Al Gore has said, "there is no controlling authority".
He never answers questions. He only picks softball interviews. And almost no one in the press bothered to even try to ask these questions BEFORE the election. What would have prevented Richard Nixon under this policy from -- legally -- assassinating Daniel Ellsberg?
Anyone who supports the Tea Party and believes in the 2nd Amendment could easily become a target under these vague rules of targeting American for killing. I bet he can´t wait to use a drone within the continental United States to further his agenda. Some nutty milita group marching around in the woods somewhere could qualify under these rules of engagement.
We do not havea president, we have a vampire that is sucking the USA dry and is doing a bang up job at it. Time to get the stakes out and put him away and I do not care how that is done, just put garlic and a cross on top of him.
There is one way to turn all this presidential, congressioanl madness around....quickly: one network whistleblower will do it. Diane, Scott, Katie, Geraldo, O´Reilly, any one of these semit-triators and full traitors steps forward and confesses the censorship imposed on this highly paid TV network and cable lying career. That´s number one. Number two, any TV person can do without giving up his or her career, and that´s complain daily about the lies of all the others. O´Reilly does not attack his media colleagues on a daily basis. None of the supposed good guys in TV or radio actually concentrate on breaking up the media lies. What do they call it? colleaguial respect? something stupid like that. Nailing the daily Diane Sawyer TV media lies is the best place to start (come on, they are protecting eveybody in Washington!!)
The lapdogs have lost all respect. I guess we´ll never know who gave the order to stand down. That is just so sad - I thought America never left anyone behind. That´s all changed now. Both parties and the media (new and old) sold their souls to whatever on this matter. And now killing 16 year old boys?!
The media are just little girls and boys with no experience in life,no sadness, no tragedy. Just jollied slong in a teen-ager/young adult cheap-reader fantasy. So when Obama says, "c´mon cameraman you are disturbing my flow" over a clicking noise- they laugh, seeing Obama as an Apollo stage host. disgusting. their editors are left-wing Ideaologs currying all this. So in this presser Obama stooges them .In the "kill policy" presser he walks out.
BEGIN RANT Our Monarch Obama is but a symptom. We ask ourselves how Obama could be elected. Our wonderful, informed, Conservative women and minorities here are not included in the following jeremiad...
We have a quandary that was in part instigated by Alinsky. Over the years various groups were given the right to vote based on what was determined to be a Constitutional right. Agreed. It was known at the time, however, that many in these groups were apolitical and had no interest in voting. Along came Alinsky and now his disciple Obama. They agitated these groups into voting with community organizing. Threats of a return to slavery, stealing young women´s birth control pills and other grievances now motivate many people to go to the polls. Political platforms mean nothing. Foreign Policy means nothing. Monetary Policy means nothing. Obama ran on nothing but platitudes, fear and give-aways.
Here is where we are. This will only get worse as time goes by. I think it will take fighting fire with fire. We need to begin doing our own community organizing. END RANT
It´s amazing how these two can lie their faces off and become so incensed when we simply do not believe their lies. This is unConstitutional and unAmerican. Please, someone, start the impeachment on treason and a myriad of items.
For all you employers. Never hire for the purpose of affirmative action. There comes a level at which affirmative action hires can destroy your company through their inept and illconceived actions. All the while acting dumbfounded by your anger because of their sense of entitlement.
We are getting what the majority of the voting public (and those who stayed home) asked in the November election. If some of us failed to act - other than talk but no action - before last November election, complaining now is not going to make it any better;and we yet have more to come.
The election was rigged for BO to win and it will be that way until someone in the Senate has guts enough to admit and demand ID cards before anyone can vote. Go back to paper ballots that you mark with a big X, hard to rig that. And forget the racist crap, I´m sick to death of the excuse simply because they are to stupid to come up with another excuse. Don´t ya all wonder what BO is holding over everyones head? They all can´t be that stupid, can they?
We aren´t just talking about flying trains, green cars and unicorn dust here, we´re discussing the murder of American citizens. Obama is already responsible for more than a few deaths but a wholesale license to kill? 007 he is not. 000 he is.
I can just imagine the following conversation between our fearless reader and Moochelle:
O: The nerve of those reporters - asking questions about the legality of killing American jihadis in foreign countries with drones. Even after I told them that I have the constitutional authority to do whatever I want!
M: I know. They are just plain evil. By the way, has Holder ever answered your question about whether it would legal to use drones to kill jihadis in the US?
O: Not yet. I’ll bring it up again when I see him.
M: I sure hope he gives us a green light; there are a few reporters that I would like to target for their comments about the girls and my luxury vacations, my bangs, the size of my butt, and the armed security at the girls’ school. Those kinds of vicious attacks would qualify them as jihadis, wouldn’t they, honey?!
What happened to the story that a drone shot down ended up in enemy hands? Is this a measured denial precaution just in case one is used on American soil against white detractors? If it was really shot down and taken into the wrong hands how long will it be until the enemy learns how to send it back to Obama with love.? Live by the drone vs die by the drone seems to super cede the sword.
Washington, D.C.—Something quite unexpected happened just hours ago, in the dark of night, during a two-day layover in Washington, DC. My son and I are scheduled to take part in a seminar outside of Raleigh, North Carolina this weekend, so we combined our travels to include a side-trip to DC for a business meeting we had previously arranged. It was during this layover that something seemingly ripped from the pages of a spy novel took place. While I was in the middle of a perfectly good and well needed sleep in the very early hours of this morning,
QUINCY – A mystery in Quincy continues to deepen: Who is flying around the city from dusk to dawn, for the past ten days or so? "It’s frightening, not just weird, but frightening,” said one resident of the Wollaston section. Every night for nearly the last two weeks, residents have spotted a low-flying aircraft doing loops over the city. WBZ has learned the FAA knows what’s going on, but the agency isn’t telling. “I mean it is strange. I don’t know if they’re looking for somebody, I have no idea,” one resident told WBZ. It’s not the state Source corrected by Staff.
Minutes before the bombs blew up in Boston, Jeff Bauman looked into the eyes of the man who tried to kill him. Just before 3 p.m. on April 15, Bauman was waiting among the crowd for his girlfriend to cross the finish line at the Boston Marathon. A man wearing a cap, sunglasses and a black jacket over a hooded sweatshirt looked at Jeff, 27, and dropped a bag at his feet, his brother, Chris Bauman, said in an interview. Two and a half minutes later, the bag exploded, tearing Jeff’s legs apart.
CBS News has learned that multiple new whistleblowers are privately speaking to investigators with the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee regarding the Sept. 11, 2012 terrorist attacks on the U.S. compounds in Benghazi, Libya. The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time. But in response, the Oversight Committee yesterday sent letters to the three federal agencies involved: the CIA, the Defense Department and the State Department. The letters make the case for the whistleblowers to be able to share
Barack Obama´s administration has cut the budget nearly in half for preventing domestic bombings, MailOnline can reveal. Under President George W. Bush, the Department of Homeland Security had $20 million allocated for preventing the use of improvised explosive devices (IEDs) by terrorists working inside the United States. The current White House has cut that funding down to $11 million. That assessment comes from Robert Liscouski, a former Homeland Security Assistant Secretary for Infrastructure Protection, in the wake of the Boston Marathon bombings on April 15 that killed three Americans and injured at least 173 others.
The Environmental Protection Agency acknowledged Tuesday that it released personal information on potentially thousands of farmers and ranchers to environmental groups, following concerns from congressional Republicans and agriculture groups that the release could endanger their safety. According to a document obtained by FoxNews.com, the EPA said “some of the personal information that could have been protected … was released." Though the EPA has already sent out the documents, the agency now says it has since redacted sensitive details and asked the environmental groups to “return the information.” But Sen. John Thune, who originally complained about the release,
Yet another new survey shows that Republican supporters know more about politics and political history than Democrats. On eight of 13 questions about politics, Republicans outscored Democrats by an average of 18 percentage points, according to a new Pew survey titled “Partisan Differences in Knowledge.” The Pew survey adds to a wave of surveys and studies showing that GOP-sympathizers are better informed, more intellectually consistent, more open-minded, more empathetic and more receptive to criticism than their fellow Americans who support the Democratic Party. “Republicans fare substantially better than Democrats on several questions in the survey,
New York — The anchor who might beat Bill O’Reilly gets her eyelash extensions applied one at a time, with tweezers and dabs of glue, about 90 minutes before showtime, right after a motorized gun sprays foundation over her face, neck, shoulders, collarbone and sternum, wiping out a galaxy of light freckles that spreads across her — Let me stop you right there.

In August 2013 I became very sick with what I thought was a cold. After a few days I lost vision in my left eye and I checked into the hospital. I soon found out that what I thought was a summer cold was actually Strep bacteria poisoning my blood stream. The bacteria blinded my left eye, ate a hole through my heart, caused five strokes on both sides of my brain and forced the removal of my prosthetic left knee. Dr. Lee was the surgeon assigned to perform open heart surgery. What was originally scheduled to last four hours ended
When I was a kid, I knew two different Santa Clauses. The first had a fat belly, rosy cheeks, a long white beard, and skin as pink as bubble gum. He was omnipresent, visiting my pre-school and the local mall, visible in all of my favorite Christmas specials. Then there was the Santa in my family’s household, in the form of ornaments, cards, and holiday figurines. A near-carbon copy of the first one—big belly, rosy cheeks, long white beard: check, check, check. But his skin was as dark as mine. Seeing two different Santas was bewildering. Eventually I asked my father what
Johannesburg - A man who provided sign language interpretation on stage for Nelson Mandela´s memorial service, attended by scores of heads of state, was a "fake," the national director of the Deaf Federation of South Africa said on Tuesday. Asked about the claim by The Associated Press, South Africa´s government said it was preparing a statement. Three sign language experts said the man was not signing in South African or American sign languages. South African sign language covers all of the country´s 11 official languages, according to the federation. It wasn´t immediately clear if the unidentified man was using a
The health director who approved the release of President Obama’s birth certificate has died in a plane crash, Hawaiian officials said Thursday. Loretta Fuddy died after the Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft she was travelling on went down shortly after leaving Kalaupapa Airport at around 3:15 p.m. local time (10:15 a.m. ET) on Wednesday. The other eight people on board were rescued, Richard Schuman, president of Makani Kai Air, told NBC News early Thursday, adding that that there was no indication as to why the plane had crashed. Fuddy hit the headlines two years ago when she approved a waiver request allowing Obama to
House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) snapped at conservative groups that have come out in opposition to the budget deal reached Wednesday between Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.). "They´re using the American people for their own purposes. This is ridiculous," Boehner said at a press conference with other members of House Republican leadership on Wednesday. Over the past few days, a number of conservative groups have blasted the deal because it sets discretionary spending levels in the budget higher than previous levels under sequestration. In the past three days, the influential Heritage Action, Club for Growth, Americans
Views of the tea party are at all-time lows in a new poll, as primary challenges to establishment Republicans continue to heat up Washington. Just 30 percent of Americans view the tea party favorably in a new Gallup poll released Wednesday, the movement’s lowest point since Gallup began polling about it during its rise in 2010. Also in a first, a majority of Americans had an unfavorable view of the tea party, at 51 percent. Similar numbers of respondents described themselves as proponents or opponents of the tea party: Twenty-two percent identified themselves as tea party supporters, while 24 percent said they
