While You Weren’t Looking,
Obama Kills Military Commissions

National Review Online, by Andrew C. McCarthy

Original Article

Posted By:Pluperfect, 3/9/2013 5:33:03 AM

In the blink of an eye, the second Obama term has turned the clock back to the pre-9/11 days, when al-Qaeda was a law-enforcement problem, not a national-security challenge. Remember the great ruckus over the administration’s attempt to give Khalid Sheik Mohammed & Co. a civilian trial in lower Manhattan? In what would, in effect, reward their savagery in killing nearly 3,000 Americans a few blocks from the federal courthouse, the administration proposed to endow them with all the constitutional rights and peacetime civilian due process protections of American citizens, despite the fact

Congress prohibited the use of government money to ship prisoners to NYC so this lawless bunch brought him directly to NYC thus providing him civilian protection not given to other guest at Gitmo.
Now the other guest will appeal for the same benefits.
What a hateful administration.

It is released on a weekend with minimal exposure.

Obama has brought a foreign enemy to U.S. soil for a civilan trial at a high cost to the American taxpayer. Trials for foreign combatants should be held at GITMO where security and facilities already exist. I think this may be just the beginning. With his dismatling of the military, I fear he is making the United States weak and open for attack. I pray it does not, but I really expect something will happen again in the U.S.

Terrorism is treated with constitutional protections as if they were domestic crimes while the state of war is against domestic patriots. It is like pulling teeth to get administration officials to affirm constitutional guarantees for citizens or answer NO to the simple question of Ted Cruz and Rand Paul, can the president kill american citizens on american soil with a drone when they are not in the act of launching any attack. The target of the war on terror is american citizens and the beneficiaries of the bill of rights are real terrorists!

NO, Obama is a Muslim !!!!

If it is a Military Commission that decides the death penalty, then it is Obama as the "Commander in Chief" that MUST sign the death warrant.

If it is a Civilian Court, then it is a Judge that will do that, and NOT Obama !!!

You are thinking about this the wrong way !

My guess is that all the Sunday msm shows will either ignore what just happened or praise Obama for giving terrorists caught abroad Constitutional rights. In New York City a hung jury or an acquittal is likely. The leftists hate America more than Al-Qaeda and if they get on the jury then no matter the evidence nullification could happen. I think that is what Obama wants a trial that vilifies America and frees a terrorist. God help us this Administration is destroying this country easier and at a faster pace than they even imagined.

Just what purpose justifies having drones in US skies other than to attack political dissent? Are they going to crop dust frankensteined Monsanto crops?

That letter sent by Holder might reassure some but should not most who know all too well the past patterns of Obama lying out his pie hole. Besides the letter came from Holder, not Obama. Yes they will split hairs later and claim Obama didn´t give any orders(just like Benghazi) to shoot to kill. I foresee them going ahead and quietly deploying drones, the 30,000 predicted by 2020 and act like it´s all good, gonna play nice. Once the admin starts the civil war the status/mission will change. Wave Holder´s letter then and see what good it does. The DC commies will just laugh.

Was it Stalin who said, "Promise them everything and give them nothing"? That letter is just a dodge to get the confirmations the admin wanted and not to be trusted. It is just as worthless as the paper it´s printed on.

When this case goes to trial, be prepared for demonstrations and likely violence in NYC, incessant media coverage, outrageous courtroom behavior by the defendant, sequestered jurists in fear for their lives.
If they are luck enough to get a conviction and avoid a mistrial because Abu Ghayth is neither a citizen nor committed any crime under the the US Code on US soil, then be prepared for lengthy appeals.

I say, let Abu Ghayth go free, and ship Obama and Holder to Gitmo for military tribunals.

Let me see if I got this right... This administration argues that it has the right to kill American citizens on American soil with drone strikes when they are not in combat but MAY pose a threat.....But we need to afford non citizens who are fighting against this country the full constitutional protections of the right to trial, miranda, lawyers, interogation protection, etc. Why did we nt just teach King George´s army how to hide behind trees so they could win the revolution and we would not have to worry about constitutional protections for American citizens (its such a bother!)

this will be a show trial to make Obama look good (remember Holder´s comment about a KSM trial, no matter the outcome, KSM will never be released)

I always thought that the Constitution was written by AMERICANS and intended for AMERICANS. In this modern age, it seems that the Constitution, and thusly American law, is actually intended for foreigners and not for American citizens. And does that mean that citizens of other counties can now claim "constitutional rights" if they are arrested in their own country? And what about an American who commits a crime in another country. Does that person get "constitutional right"? I really don´t think that would ever happen. But just because someone is in our custody, we grant them rights that they never heard of before. And there will be a ton on trial lawyers that will want do "defend" said person, mainly because there will be enourmous amounts of MONEY to be made.

It´s past time for the next revolution.

The US government infiltration of Muslim totalitarian planning in favor of Islamic rules and war is overwhelming and rarely, if ever, openly discussed in our media.
The new CIA appointment of John Brennan is an elegant example of this US government counter intelligence disease. Just now voted CIA Director, by a greed drugged, sleeping, stupid Congress, Brennan, an avowed muslim enabler, joins many other muslim supporting appointees and electeds in our government to our great danger. Go to Robert Spencer´s www.JIHADWATCH.com Friday March 8, to third article, "Jihad Disaster, Islamic supremicist enabler John Brennan confirmed as CIA Director". Find the article and Robert´s one hour video interview with former FBI agent, John Guandolo. This fascinating revelation of suppressed facts may be the most important single interview describing this massive conflict. Learn about the breathtaking infiltration of muslims in our government, and how the softness to this danger applies equally to both so-called parties. Robert is a true hero, and John Guandolo together make two of the brightest best informed people, who will never be allowed even on Fox TV. Yes, even FoxTV is soft. Evasive, on cancerous Jihad/muslim truth. Hey, they’ve got Muslim stockholders. Two heroic people, two heroic blogs, assiduously covering this giant mess, and not reported by lamestream media. Keep your eyes on Robert Spencer, JihadWatch.com and Pamela Geller, AtlasShrugs.com. They are the only two reporting the brutal truth daily from all over the world.

Obama said in his book that he would "always side with the Muslims," and he has, from helping the Muslim Brotherhood take overs in Libya, Egypt, Syria, etc., to granting Osama bin-Laden´s son the rights of an American citizen.

Now we will see a bin-Laden being granted discovery rights, allowing him to subpoena classified intelligence documents, exposing American methods and agents, all to the benefit of al-Qaeda and related Islamic terrorist groups.

THIS was the real purpose of Obama/Holder seeking to hold these trials all along....

Barack Obama and Eric Holder hate America every bit as much as they hate white people and Jews, and that´s saying quite a bit.

The only thing standing in the way of another major terrorist attack in NYC is Ray Kelly and the NYPD. When he is gone, the NYPD will be hog tied and the Wild West will return to NY. I can only imagine how quickly the terrorists will regain a foothold. God help New Yorkers who blindly follow this devil in the White House. How they are not marching in the streets with Bin Laden´s son in law in their back yard is beyond me. So glad not to live and work there any longer.

White House blames fox for

Daily Caller, by Vince Coglianese    Original Article
Posted By: Pluperfect- 4/18/2014 3:59:04 PM     Post Reply
The White House is going to war with another fox — and this time, it’s personal. The Wall Street Journal reports that a red fox has been causing chaos around the White House, tripping security alarms, digging up Michelle’s garden and distracting the president from his duties. The Secret Service won’t give any details about how often the fox trips the White House’s obviously sophisticated security alarms, but rest assured, officials say, they’re watching. President Obama was apparently “stunned” to see the fox roaming freely down the oft-photographed White House colonnade, home to the world’s shortest, but most dramatic, outdoor strolls.

Shortly after the Supreme Court’s decision on Obamacare, the CBO projected that 9 million people would buy Obamacare-compliant insurance through newly established government-run exchanges. Now, after an enrollment period that his administration expanded by about two months—to more than half a year—President Obama says that 8 million people have “signed up” for (but in many cases haven’t actually bought) insurance through those exchanges. The Obama administration’s stated goal was to have 39 percent of those who bought such insurance be between the ages of 18 and 34. Now Obama says the actual percentage is 28 percent. Only in Washington, D.C. could someone

House Democrats, battered by Koch brothers ads and facing a grim outlook for the midterms, are providing the clearest indication yet of how they plan to respond: By shoring up imperiled incumbents and only the most promising challengers, but most likely leaving some of the party’s upstart hopefuls to fend for themselves. The strategy, detailed in nearly two dozen interviews with party officials and strategists, is a tacit acknowledgement of the ominous political environment Democrats are up against this year. The goal is to stop Republicans from padding their 17-seat edge and keep the party within striking distance of the majority

Washington – The National Republican Senatorial Committee, a group tasked with getting Republicans elected to the Senate, believes Republicans have expanded the 2014 playing field with five more contested races as the GOP seeks to retake control of the chamber. In a memo released to consultants Friday morning, NRSC political director Ward Baker writes that Republicans have become competitive in Colorado, New Hampshire, Virginia, Oregon and Minnesota since the start of the year. That´s in addition to nearly 10 Senate seats the NRSC has been aggressively targeting.

The captain of a South Korean ferry that sank off the southwest coast of South Korea this week with hundreds of high school students aboard was arrested early Saturday along with two crewmembers, the Yonhap news agency reports. The captain, 68-year-old Lee Joon-seok, was jailed on five counts of charges including negligence of duty and violation of maritime law, Yonhap reports. The exact charges filed against the two crewmembers, who were allegedly operating the ship alone at the time of the accident, were not immediately available. Prosecutors, in seeking an arrest warrant on Friday, alleged that Lee had left the vessel in charge

It is a bit bigger and somewhat colder, but a planet circling a star 500 light-years away is otherwise the closest match of our home world discovered so far, astronomers announced on Thursday. The planet, known as Kepler 186f, named after NASA’s Kepler planet-finding mission, which detected it, has a diameter of 8,700 miles, 10 percent wider than Earth, and its orbit lies within the “Goldilocks zone” of its star, Kepler 186 — not too hot, not too cold, where temperatures could allow for liquid water to flow at the surface, making it potentially hospitable for life. “Kepler 186f is

In his first case back in the courtroom, Edwards is part of a legal team representing a 4-year-old in a medical malpractice case.

The VA hospital that slapped a $525 federal fine on a man after he refilled his 89-cent drink without paying has backed down, choosing to issue a warning instead of a citation, a spokesperson for the facility said Thursday. Christopher T. Lewis, of North Charleston, was issued the $525 citation on Wednesday after he ignored signage indicating that there’s no such thing as a free lunch — or complimentary drink refills — at the Ralph H. Johnson VA Medical Center in Charleston. Lewis, who is not a federal employee, told responding officers he had done the same thing “multiple times” before

President Obama addressed the White House press corps today, announcing that with the final numbers in, Obamacare´s exchanges have attracted eight million sign-ups -- 35 percent of whom are "under the age of 35," he said. Several elements of his comments were misleading: (1) At first blush, the 35 percent stat is both significant and impressive. As recently as last month, the share of "young invincibles" signing up for plans was struggling in the 25 percent range, far short of the actuarial target of nearly 40 percent. A leap into the mid-30´s, while still shy of the goal, would constitute a major step, and would bode well for the risk pools'

When it comes to tracking the cost of Obama family vacations, there are two primary challenges. First, the Obamas are prolific jet-setters, so there are many details to track. Second, the Obama administration, clearly embarrassed by these lavish and frequent family vacations, stonewalls the release of records at every turn. But we have been relentless in pursuit of this information. Our attorneys file the lawsuits and make our case, and our investigators pour through pages of records and crunch the numbers.

In an open letter to President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry, Carter and the nine other Nobel Peace Prize winners bluntly warned the leaders: “Your decision on the Keystone XL tar sands pipeline will define your climate legacy.” The missive, published as an advertisement in Politico, represents the first time Carter has taken a position on the $5.4 billion project and makes him the first former president to come
