Shortly before U.S. troops stormed Iraq to oust its dictator, Saddam Hussein released thousands of prisoners from Iraqi jails. Some were petty criminals, some were hardcore, some were terrorists. Hussein unleashed them to build his own popularity and to sow chaos. Today, Barack H. Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is doing this: The sequester is officially still three days away, but the Obama administration already is making the first cuts, with officials confirming that the Homeland Security Department has begun to release what it deems low-priority illegal immigrants from detention. The move is proving controversial. Immigrant-rights groups say
If ever there was a ‘Must Read’, this is IT. Not solely for the sharp points it makes, but to make sure Washington’s Illegal-Immigrant-in-Chief sees — up front — his similarity to the original Hussein.
Originally I wrote ‘likeness’, but changed it to ‘similarity’ when I remembered that the original Hussein released prisoners as a response to the U.S. . . . not to give Hussein’s own citizens the finger.
The media has gifted us with Obama. Had they done their job, he would have been toast in the 2008 primary. They have no intention of doing anything other than fully supporting him and his policies. Factor in the weakness of the Republican Party and the future is looking pretty grim. Obama is on a mission to destroy this country. Releasing illegal aliens is just another in a long line of tyrannical acts perpetrated on the American public by a faux president, his fawning press, and enabling opposition. When one man has this much power, we cease to be a Republic. Tyranny is tyranny whether under Great Britain or an American President.
If this is so good an idea why not release all the federal prisoners??? And what about those in he Gitmo prison? That was to be closed the first ting he did. Heck if BO can determine who goes to prison and who doesn´t why have courst .... or even laws?? It is a dangerous slope.
Spot on #5 but who in the public spotlight will have the courage to call this blackmail / extortion for what it is?
Isn´t it stunning if a cut of 2% in spending with projected growth necessitates curtailment of vital government services? Doesn´t that make the case in and of itself for a major reset in policy? These bafoons have the unmitigated gall to admit total failure as if we are all too stupid to recognize it for such.
If this isn´t a call to action I don´t know what is.
I believe the french revolution was also begun by the release of prisoners. When criminals are running the show they favour their own. Obama will clearly sacrifice all the legitimate functions of government Law and Order and Defence first to hang onto all the unconstitutional bloat. Nothing that should be cut will be cut. He is at war with patriotic american citizens until they give him a blank cheque to spend, spend, spend. Trillions are added to the budget baseline and the baseline is increased by 10% each year and it is never enough. When the 10% increase becomes 8% he throws a tantrum like this. The first dime of any cut is calculated to shut down the most important functions of government. There will be no law and order and the military will be used against citizens and he wonders why people cling to their guns!
The liberal Democrats look at the vast majority of illegal aliens as prospective new liberal Democrat voters after they get the wimpy Republicans in the Congress to sign on to a few procedural papers. If the Republicans can´t figure that out they belong on a long slide to political oblivion.
One of the sheriffs in AZ was on Fox News with Greta last night. He said ICE started doing this over the weekend paying overtime to the employees who processed these criminals being released on the public. The sheriff made the point that the two most important functions of government are to protect the public ( from criminals), and national security and Obama is threatening to take away those functions to get his own way. ICE told the AZ sheriffs afterwards that they are not releasing murderers, just "criminal" criminals.
It seems to me that there have been many instances where 0bama and most dems could be prosecuted for treason; for malfeasance and a host of other crimes. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. So many violations of the constitution. Czar appointments. Executive orders - removing Congress from it´s duties. Conscience matters. A host of things "they" have done and continue to do. Nothing happens to them. Nothing. Spineless pubbies in Congress will not stand up to 0bama. We the people, once get upset and then we forget about it. And you can figure out the rest of it. One lie becomes truth. Treason? Big time. Tea Party accused of heinous crimes? We are screwed. Nothing legal will bring them down. We have no recourse. I guess we just have to accept it all and shut up.
A whole bunch of Dukakis-Willie Hortons will be roaming free. Google what Willie did after released and you´ll see where this is going.
Obama´s vindictive action against the citizens of the USA is going to backfire, just give it time for the crimes committed by the released to begin adding up. What a mind of a child with a grudge against America.
Don´t tell us there isn´t enough money to keep these illegals in jails: rechannel the money spent on Obama´s travels and the 30,000 drones they plan to have in the US skies by 2020. That should go a long way.
First, you can only impeach a president. As we know this man it NOT a legal president. Second, regardless of the impact on the country there is enough real evidence that he is a fraud and can be removed from the oval office, by force if necessary. BUT we have no spines so suck it up baby.
This is why the government has been stockpiling ammo. They want to take our guns so we cannot defend ourselves against Obie´s just released army. I don´t pretend to know how this will play out but it will not end well.
Barack Hussein is going to spend more money than last year. This gets them the votes of illegal Aliens, disability moochers, Food Stampers and the majority of non-work ethic Americans. Let the sequester proceed.
Imagine if we lived in a country that had a GOP as a loyal opposition Party ready, willing and able to understand the Constitution and to act when it is being assaulted by the Chief Executive and his cohorts...
Under the radar weapons and ammo are being stockpiled. Fema camps, Internet kill switch, etc... A long time ago I speculated that bin Hussein would be pi$$ing off a lot of Americans in his second term. His message to Jan Brewer was just that. From here on out he no longer cares if he has the support of the people or not. She said it was chilling. My fear is that, even though he will rule from behind closed doors, someone will make as assassination attempt. From then on all bets are off.
What difference does it make? They are now released and nothing can be done about that. So, why are we wasting time on even discussing it? On to more important things. When is the next Tiger-Barry rematch?
This action is calculated to get people emotionally upset, to the point where some - such as a couple of posters on this very thread - will say something stupid and self-defeating. Don´t let yourself get played like that. Keep calm and carry on. That bum will be strengthened, not defeated, by hot-heads flying off the handle.
This guy gives a whole new meaning to a Teflon president with the Dictator 0bama. What I am seeing him do is just horrifying. It is terribly frustrating to read about his gross violations of his Oath of Office and know that he will get away with it. What on earth can we do? Holder is as corrupt, if not worse than 0bama. There is no rule of law in this country. It´s so very tiresome always being in a state of worry about what he will do next and never pay the price. I don´t know how to get through four years of this.
Americans better remember Obama said in his own words on page 261 of the paperback edition of:Audacity of Hope “I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”
Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the 1993 first bombing of the World Trade Center, which was the beginning of the Islamic jihad against America. This man should never have been trusted with the duties of a Commander-In-Chief of the United States of America. I wonder if Saddam was one of Obama´s role models?

It has been demonstrated that BHO is not a natural born citizen, so there is no legal requirement for impeachment. BHO´s removal is a job for our military, who take an oath to protect ... against all enemmies, foreign and domestic.
Our military could take a lesson from the Honduran military, who removed Zelaya for his unconstitutional activities.

Not to mention this sequestration crap he made up, his hatred for white religious conservative guys like me, his wife, his VP, his cabinet picks, his love for Soros, Alinsky, Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and his choice to pal around with Reid, Pelosi, and all the stoopid LoMoFo "freed slaves".
These are just 10 of the many reasons I so much dont like to even hear his voice or glimpse his image...What an a**hole!
If an alien landed here and said "take me to your leader" would you think he meant this moron? Or Biden? Are you as embarassed as I am over who sits in our White House? If ever we needed two buttheads impeached, it is these two clowns!!!
"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security". Thomas Jefferson-The Declaration of Independance.
I am waiting for those who can and have tha ability to do so, rise up and lead another revolution. It´s past time to get rid of the total corruption that is Washingto D.C. and replace it with a goernment that is responsive to the ENTIRE NATION. And that will necessitate some changes in the current Constitution, but that should be no problem. And it´s time to get off our butts and get started.
This very small man who is now our president is ´one piece of work´ - to put it mildly and kindly. Whose handiwork is he? We don´t know. Maybe we´ll find out one of these days down the road a bit.
For now, I´m just trying to avoid looking at or listening to him and his wife. God bless the ones who are in the ´trenches´ fighting for our rights which Obama seems intent on destroying. We ´little people´ in flyover country are feeling helpless right now.
Release of illegals detained is not the release of convicted illegal status criminals. The first question is why were they detained instead of deported.Deportation would have meant we do would not have housed and fed them at great cost. 2nd question why are so many playing chicken little crying the sky is falling and it´s all those nasty RINO´s fault. That is especially distasteful because those called Rino´s are fellow anti- obama´s who just happen to disagree with the name callers about procedures. In about 30 ( GOP controled ) states law enforcers should round up these illegals and join forces to do the necessary deportation. Also consider this is revenge for the deportation hearing to send back to Africa Obe´s illegal status uncle. One more comment -- the only racial part concerns black detainees from Africa.
In re #25, the November election was ours to lose. Due to a number of reasons I have expressed before, Obie´s divide and conquer strategy among the opposition ranks worked. Either we voted for Romney, voted for other offices, but could not/would not vote for Romney, or did not vote at all. That is why we let Obie get away with it now.
I told you numerous times that Obama wants to be a dictator like Hitler and he is on his way to doing just that. It will someday become apparent to the ones who elected him, that we are no longer free. We are a socialist, communist nation - no freedom left.,
The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced this morning that nearly 365,000 Americans had signed up for private health insurance under Obamacare. The vast majority came from 14 states running their own insurance exchanges, while 137,000 came by way of HealthCare.gov, the much-faulted federal Web site that handles enrollment for the remaining states. But amid the rush to enroll as many people as possible by the Dec. 23 deadline, there’s a huge caveat that isn’t getting much public attention: For coverage to take effect on Jan. 1, enrollees must pay their first month’s premium on time. (The deadline varies
If you like your selfie, you can keep your selfie. Period. Unless, of course, you’re Barack Obama, in which case, you better delete it from your smartphone pronto, unless you’d like to spend the next three or four months dining on hot tongue and cold shoulder. You didn’t need a fake interpreter from an old Woody Allen movie to translate Moochelle Obama’s body language. So there they were, Barry, British Prime Minister David Cameron and the hot-wife leader of Denmark, Helle Thorning-Schmidt, hamming it up like it was the 25th anniversary reunion of the Choom Gang. Some Krazy Kids, horsing around, waiting for
The British security firm that failed to protect the U.S. consulate in Benghazi, Libya, from a terrorist attack a year ago that killed Ambassador Christopher Stevens was told by the State Department to avoid the media, the latest example of stonewalling over the attack. In newly uncovered emails received by the public watchdog group Judicial Watch, State was notified that the firm, Blue Mountain Group, was being pressed for answers about the surprise attack. Instead of giving the group the green light to answer the media, State ordered the firm to go into hiding. “Thank you so much for informing us about
Regularly scheduled elections are a hallmark of the American political system. In 18th-century Britain, the monarch could call new elections on a whim, and our Founders saw in that arrangement a seed of tyranny. The Constitution they designed requires elections for Congress every two years, and the next such elections are less than a year away. This is good news for conservatives as they continue to oppose the Obama administration. This president has been tremendously helped by having a Democratic-controlled Senate for his first five years in office. Harry Reid’s masterful, if not entirely virtuous, use of Senate rules has
The gangster state of North Korea became a nuclear power in 2006–07, despite lots of foreign aid aimed at precluding just such proliferation — help usually not otherwise accorded such a loony dictatorship. Apparently the civilized world rightly suspected that, if nuclear, Pyongyang would either export nuclear material and expertise to other unstable countries, or bully its successful but non-nuclear neighbors — or both. The United States has given billions of dollars in foreign aid to Pakistan, whose Islamist gangs have spearheaded radical anti-American terrorism. Ever since a corrupt Pakistan went nuclear in 1998, it has been able to extort such
After three months and more than 50 phone calls, John Gisler gave up on buying coverage through HealthCare.gov. Gisler wanted to purchase a plan for his 45-year-old son, who has a rare degenerative condition affecting his coordination and speech. His current coverage through Utah’s high-risk insurance pool plan ends Dec. 31. By that time, the Obama administration expects enrollees to transition into health plans sold through the new health-care law. But so far, Gisler hasn’t succeeded in purchasing coverage -- but not for a lack of effort. “We’ve had three separate applications that failed to make it through,” Gisler says. “I have a
Remember when Bill Clinton was twice elected President as a "New Democrat" who wanted to get along with people in the private economy? Nowadays even writing in favor of ideas that Mr. Clinton supported can get you branded a heretic and banished from impolite liberal society. Witness the political tempest that blew up in response to the December 3 op-ed we published by Democrats Jon Cowan and Jim Kessler of the Third Way think tank. The former aides to Andrew Cuomo and Chuck Schumer, respectively, would be considered liberals in most places outside of the Harvard faculty lounge. But the campus
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
US President Barack Obama may have moved the masses attending Nelson Mandela’s memorial service with his stirring eulogy, but it was his grinning "selfie" with the Danish and British premiers that set social networks abuzz. In a candid moment captured by a photographer, Denmark’s Prime Minister Helle Thorning-Schmidt can be seen holding up her smartphone, with Obama lending a helping hand, as they pose for a picture with David Cameron, all three of them smiling broadly in their seats at Soweto’s World Cup stadium.(Snip)Mashable, the news and technology website, ran the photograph under the headline: ‘‘Dear Obama: Funerals are no place

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
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
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
A black fashion student says he was brutally attacked by a gang of Hasidic men who shouted anti-gay slurs at him while he was walking through Williamsburg after a night of partying, the Daily News has learned. Taj Patterson, 22, was headed home to Fort Greene around 4:30 a.m. on Dec. 1 when he says more than a dozen ultra-Orthodox Jewish men began assaulting him on Flushing Ave. and yelling, “Stay down, f----t!”
