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

The Obama administration is poised to entertain a flood of new clemency applications from thousands of federal prisoners who were given harsh sentences under mandatory-minimum laws following drug convictions, Attorney General Eric Holder said Monday. Holder said in a short videotaped statement that he wants to shrink the federal prison population by a modest amount while ensuring ´that those who have paid their debts have a chance to become productive citizens.´ At the center of the move is a set of old sentencing rules that punished crack-cocaine offenders with more time behind bars than users or traffickers of powder cocaine.

Former Sen. Bob Dole (R-Kan.) said a number of junior GOP senators considering a presidential run in 2016 do not yet have the experience — specifically naming Rand Paul (Ky.), Marco Rubio (Fla.) and Ted Cruz (Texas). The former 1996 GOP presidential candidate sounded particularly skeptical of Cruz in an interview this week with The Wichita Eagle. "A number of the younger members, first-termers like Rand Paul, Rubio and that extreme-right-wing guy, Ted Cruz — all running for president now. I don´t think they´ve got enough experience yet," Dole said. The 90-year-old former senator said, however, his main concern about 2016 is living

If Jeb reaches for the nomination, there will be a titanic battle between the party establishment and the Tea Party. Steve Schmidt, McCain’s strategist in 2008, insists that in the end Republicans usually settle on the most electable candidate. To get by, this Bush may be forced to trim his positions, although the cautionary tale of Romney suggests that he would have to tack artfully and carefully for the sake of the general election. Certainly he will have the resources to outlast, discredit, and disqualify his rivals.

Washington - Michelle Obama said "splurging is the key to life" if you regularly eat right and stay active. Her biggest guilty pleasure: French fries. "How would you appreciate vegetables if you never had chocolate?" she asked. "You couldn´t live without a little chocolate, a little French fries." The first lady took questions from children reporters Monday after appearing at the White House Easter Egg Roll. She told the children that if they eat right the majority of the time, then a splurge or snack is not going to hurt them. "I still splurge when I can, but that's why I try to exercise almost every day," she said.

There’s a pattern of falsifying statistics throughout the entire Census Bureau. And anyone who attempts to blow the whistle on the fraud is either retaliated against or ignored, according to two new sources who have experienced the process firsthand. As I’ve been writing for more than six months, the Census Bureau office in Philadelphia uncovered a case of fraud in 2010, did nothing about it and allowed the practice to continue. In that instance, a data collector named Julius Buckmon was faking reports that went into the nation’s all-important jobless tally and consumer-inflation survey. Because the Census Bureau’s surveys are scientific — meaning

Republican victories could also put him out of a job, he cautioned. “We will live in a very, very, very different kind of country if that happens,” Professor Brent Terry told students in his Introduction to Creative Writing course, according to audio obtained by Campus Reform. “I mean, colleges will start closing up if these people have their way.” Over the course of his rant, Terry characterized conservatives

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

Global sea levels have risen by 8 inches (20cm) since 1880 and scientists predict they could rise up to 3ft (98cm) by 2100. But despite the UN’s recent threats of war, famine and extreme weather, such a dramatically different world caused by sea level rise can be hard to imagine. To help picture the future, Martin Vargic, an amateur graphic designer from Slovakia, has created a map depicting the planet with sea levels around 260ft (79m) higher than they are today. He imagines what Earth would look like if the ice sheets surrounding the North and South poles melted, releasing

It may not be tomorrow, but Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) says "something will happen" to force a Nevada rancher to obey a court order to stop grazing his cattle on federal land and pay his grazing fees. "It´s obvious that you can´t just walk away from this," Reid said in an April 18 interview with a Nevada´s KSNV-TV News 3 program “What’s Your Point?” "You can´t have a law that is -- we´re a nation of laws, not of men and women," he said.

Thirty-eight Republican lawmakers, including such unlikely bedfellows as John McCain of Arizona and Ted Cruz of Texas, have joined to support a lawsuit challenging the legality of the Affordable Care Act and accusing the president of repeatedly ignoring the law he signed for political reasons. The lawmakers have signed onto a legal brief in support of a lawsuit filed by Sen. Ron Johnson, the Wisconsin Republican who is asking a federal court to overturn Obamacare’s special treatment for members of Congress and their staffs. “The unlawful executive action at issue in this case is not an isolated incident,” the brief

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of American democracy is the magnificent estate of public land that it reserved from the very beginning for the use of all citizens, rich or poor. There is nothing like it in the democracies of Europe, which came into being with nations already carved up into private fiefdoms. The Great Idea that hundreds of millions of acres of forests, deserts, rivers and prairies should be owned by, and managed for, the public interest has had a profound and lasting influence on American culture. But not everyone has accepted it. Cliven Bundy’s armed standoff with the National Park
