Obama, Carney walk away from
media questions about kill policy

The Daily Caller, by Neil Munro

Original Article

Posted By:pinkpanther, 2/6/2013 12:49:21 AM

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

I thought it was completely illegal for the POTUS to hire hit men. Been that way ~ 40 years.

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.

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".

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.

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!!)

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

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.

DHS insider: It’s about to get very ugly

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.

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.

The nature of the communications with the whistleblowers and their identities are not being made public at this time.

Obama administration has SLASHED
budget for domestic bombing prevention
by 45 per cent, says former
Homeland Security Assistant Secretary
UK Mail Online, by David Martosko    Original Article
Posted By: Pinkpanther- 4/16/2013 11:42:33 PM     Post Reply
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,

James Holmes, the gunman behind the Dark Knight massacre in Colorado last July, has reportedly turned Muslim and prays five times a day. The killer showed off a lengthy, thick beard during a court appearance earlier this month, and a prison source has claimed it is a symbol of his new-found faith. The source said Holmes has turned to Islam as a way of justifying his horrific murder spree in an Aurora, Colorado cinema on July 20 which left 12 people dead and 58 people wounded. ´He has brainwashed himself into believing he was on his

A presidential ethics panel has opened the door to testing an anthrax vaccine on children as young as infants, bringing an angry response from critics who say the children would be guinea pigs in a study that would never help them and might harm them. The report, however, released on Tuesday by the Presidential Commission for the Study of Bioethical Issues, said researchers would have to overcome numerous hurdles before launching an anthrax-vaccine trial in children. It now goes to Secretary of Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius, who will decide whether to

New Pope Francis I is a conservative in the mold of his predecessor, Pope Benedict XVI and Pope John Paul II. That’s especially true on the issue of abortion, which he called a “death sentence” for the unborn in 2007. “We aren’t in agreement with the death penalty,” he said during that speech, “but in Argentina we have the death penalty. A child conceived by the rape of a mentally ill or retarded woman can be condemned to death.” In his writings, Francis wrote, “we should commit ourselves to ‘eucharistic coherence,’ that is, we should be conscious that people cannot receive holy communion

Democrats were overjoyed when George W. Bush left office in January of 2009. Obama had promised to end Bush´s hawkish foreign policy and the "war on terror´s" detention and interrogation regime. But in the beginning of his fifth year as president, Obama´s record has been surprisingly similar to his predecessor´s in those areas. 1. Democrats fought George W. Bush’s troop surge in Iraq in 2006. Obama copied it in Afghanistan in 2009. You would think Democrats would react the same way they did to Bush´s surge policy. But they were really more like

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

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

On Fox News Sunday, political analyst Brit Hume said that Eric Holder’s claim that his treatment at the hands of Representative Louie Gohmert (R-TX) at a House hearing this week was unprecedented toward an Attorney General, made him a “crybaby,” and that he and President Barack Obama had in fact benefited “enormously” from being the first African Americans in their respective positions. “This strikes me as kinda crybaby stuff from Holder,” Hume said. “My sense about this is both Eric Holder and Barack Obama have benefited politically enormously from the fact that they are African American and the first to

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

They’re both qualified, respectful of each other (shocker!), and represent the vast majority of middle America. So what’s not to like about another Clinton/Bush race for 2016? When you mention the prospect of Clinton vs. Bush 2016 a funny thing happens. First, there is the reflexive response: "Oh no, not again. We don´t need more dynastic politics in this country." But upon further reflection, you realize Jeb Bush vs. Hillary Clinton would be a great race and actually good for the country. Let´s review. QUALIFICATIONS—THEY’VE BOTH GOT THEM.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Funny question in the headline, yes? But since President Obama worries more about the threat of terrorists´ improvised nuclear device going off in a major American city than anything Russia can throw at us, I was wondering if the government had deigned to share with us citizens any tips for, you know, surviving something their own intelligence points to as the likeliest unlikely Black Swan event. Well, no. And yes. No — very few people in Washington, D.C., who work for the government have any idea what they would do if a 10-kiloton nuclear device exploded at the intersection of 16th and K

When President Obama needed a preacher to fulfill the closing prayer duties at the annual White House Easter Prayer Breakfast, he turned to none other than the Episcopal Church’s first openly gay bishop — who said he was as shocked as anyone at the appointment. The Right Rev. Gene Robinson said in a tweet, accompanied by a photo of Mr. Obama behind a podium at the event: “POTUS ‘preaches’ at the Easter prayer breakfast. Then, out of the blue, asks ME to close with prayer. OMG!” Newsmax said he also emphasized that the words he chose to close the breakfast

Talking Points Memo’s Tom Kludt spotted the following tweet from Robinson, who was in attendance: (Tweet) Robinson, 66, became diocesan bishop of New Hampshire in March 2004.

A Russian fighter jet made multiple, close-range passes near an American warship in the Black Sea for more than 90 minutes Saturday amid escalating tensions in the region, a U.S. military official said Monday. In the first public account of the incident, the official said the Russian Fencer flew within 1,000 yards of the USS Donald Cook, a Navy destroyer, at about 500 feet above sea level. Ship commanders considered the actions provocative and inconsistent with international agreements, prompting the ship to issue several radio queries and warnings. The fighter appeared to be unarmed and never was in danger of
