During a press conference yesterday, President Obama revealed the existence of a sealed indictment in the Benghazi attacks in Libya on September 11, 2012, leaving some experts questioning whether the president broke the law. Federal law states that ´no person may disclose [a sealed] indictment´s existence,´ and that doing so may be ´punished as a contempt of court,´ a charge that carries a minimum sentence of six months prison. The announcement came as a surprise to some insiders, as the existence of a sealed indictment has not been publicly confirmed or denied by law enforcement or
0bama keeps reminding us that he said he would get Osama bin Laden, and he did. What he fails to add is that without Bush´s waterboarding (which 0bama said was torture and said he would never do), so without the information retrieved from this waterboarding, he would never have had all the information which allowed 0bama to find Osama. Most of us are skeptical, as the Benghazi investigation was delayed for so long, this administration has stonewalled and not been open with what actually went on in Benghazi. So it is hard to trust anything he says about Benghazi.
What difference does it make? He´s already broken so many laws and committed so many violations of our Constitution he could earn a life sentence- but, until we get a supervising congress, so what? He truly is above the law and there is not one day-um thing anyone will do about it.
Whether the laws apply to him or not the spineless Republicans will not enforce them - not against Obama - not against Holder - not against IRS officials - not against anyone associated with the Obama administration!
Under CRT (Critical Race Theory) being taught in the colleges these days any laws written by racist white men (like the Constitution) don´t apply to blacks. So in theory obama hasn´t broken any laws and he will continue unchallenged. No one in DC wants to be called a racist better to let the country be destroyed than to be called that name. Oh will bye bye Republic.
This Administration pays NO attention to the rule of law, to the US Constitution, to the other branches of government, and no one does a darned thing about it!! Do others suspect, as I do, that those not within the Administration have been threatened or are being blackmailed, thereby allowing this rogue Administration to do as it pleases with impunity?
Is there a dire and deadly serious crime being committed that no one in print mentions? Is it easier to call most in the government weak than it is to call the President and his gang criminals?
But then his whole transformation thing meant that by using his racist accusations he could literally get away with murder. Our Constitution has survived much but the fabric of the union is being completely destroyed with the hatred he promotes daily.
Once again, the Brits have come to the rescue of the American commoners by reporting critical news that our own worthless msm refusing to report.
The repeated question, "Did President Obama Break the Law" is not new anymore. The real question is, how will the repeated law breaking ultimately be dealt with and how will the msm be made to get its own house in order? Whats it going to take to wake us up?
We once were "a nation of laws and not of men." Obama is a criminal in the most blatant sense and disobeys whatever law he chooses. If we had an honorable government he would without question be impeached.
If you read the complete article, near the end you get to this quote from another universe:
"According to a former lawyer for Justice Department´s Public Integrity Section, by virtue of his position, leaking classified information turns it into authorized information. Peter Zeidenberg told ABC News, ´Nothing he says is technically a leak. If he does it, it is authorized.´ However, had any other official mentioned the existence of the indictment, they would have been guilty of contempt of court."
WHAT?! That makes absolutely no sense. and then this resident of the alternate universe, Zeidenberg, goes on to say:
"Zeidenberg said that it is, however, possible to form an argument that a sealed matter can only be unsealed by a court."
I have never seen such double talk in my entire life. I feel like I´m in some sort of weird dream that I can´t wake up from.
He is like the schoolyard bully who has pulled the wool over the eyes of his teachers and think little BO is so cute and smart. His attitude is, "Whad´a ya´ gonna do ´bout it?"
He has a Star Trekkian "deflector shield", namely, he looks more like his father than his mother. The media will not hold him to account. He knows it; he exploits every weakness-of-will and sycophancy on their parts.
By the way, this is the way most tyrants rise to power and consolidate it. Our Republic requires or depends on Citizens, including those having political positions, protecting the Constitution.
Now we see some who are fighting for our Constitution, but look what happens! His fellow Party members turn on him with tooth and fang... despicable.
We can´t be "Sunshine Patriots". There is a lot of work to be done and not much more time.
Let´s see. Obama is shuffling potential witnesses around the country and changing their names to avoid testifying. So now he can´t wait to put this guy on the stand. Not. Obama, State, the military, the CIA and most of Congress want this to just go away.
Obi wan kibammy, aka Barry Skywalker, doesn´t care what you think. All of official Washington connived in his illegal election and reelection. We are well and truly screwed unless we take matters into our own hands.
The rhetorical questions posed by me indicate an answer in the affirmative but do not ´bear´ directly on Popes,bears,Catholics, or the woods. Also the joke is so old that I thought best to invert it just to freshen it up a little.
It´s past time talking about OBozo. WE´ve known and aren´t surprised by anything he does anymore, he´s such a Marxist dog. It´s time to take to task the ENTIRE dc organization of crooks and inepts. Hold a Constitutional convention and may the states who wish to band together do so. Tell dc we will no longer abide by anything they do or say. We will stop paying their income tax. We will restore a business atmosphere condusive to prosperity. We the people are taking back our country. The only way out of this swamp, folks.
Fact-- Since Hispanics are not a separate race racism doesn´t apply to them. Next fact -- that means 90% of the population is so caught up in words racism and racial they allow 10% of the population to override the Constitution. Today´s population did Not enslave the currant black population so stop playing the radicals game pushed by about 3% of that number. Our black citizens who are unhappy can always move to Africa. Our unhappy white population should grow up.
An illegal immigrant from Albania with three American-born children who was to be deported Tuesday has been granted a reprieve, gaining at least one more year in America. [Snip] Precetaj received a call from authorities Friday afternoon telling her to report to the immigration office in Detroit for the removal of her tether. While there, she was given a letter which informed her that her stay of removal request had been granted for one year. ´Now I can [chaperone] my son’s field trip to Ohio,´ Precetaj told the Detroit Free Press. The Free Press notes that when Precetaj´s one year
Chuck Hagel, the US Defence Secretary, today sought to reassure Gulf states concerned about the recent nuclear deal with Iran by providing an unprecedented breakdown of America’s military presence in the region. Several leading pro-Western Gulf states, including Saudi Arabia and Bahrain, have expressed displeasure about the recent interim agreement reached with Iran in Geneva over its nuclear programme, fearing that it could result in the U.S. abandoning its long-established ties with Gulf states in return for better relations with Tehran. But speaking at the annual Manama Dialogue international security conference in Bahrain, Mr Hagel went out of his way
Three members of a so-called ´Muslim Patrol´ were today jailed at the Old Bailey for repeatedly trying to enforce Sharia law in East London. Jordan Horner and another Islamic extremist told one couple they could not hold hands while walking down the street, because it was in a ´Muslim area´. The radicals also attacked a group of men drinking in the road, and told a woman she would face ´hell fire´ because of the way she was dressed. Horner, 19, Ricardo MacFarlane, 36, and a 23-year-old man who cannot be named for legal reasons were sentenced to 68 weeks, 12
A primary school has banned Enid Blyton children´s stories so it could win a race equality award. The Famous Five classics were dumped because they had ´inappropriate ethnic stereotypes´ with references to gypsies, golliwogs and a dog with a name starting with ´N´. [Snip] Two of the offending stories were Blyton´s Five Go To Mystery Moor and The Children of Kidillin. The much-loved author wrote more than 600 books before her death in 1968. In the 1990s some of her stories were edited to remove parts that were considered racist, sexist or anti-Semitic. Deputy head Phil Clarke said many of
Dozens of people have died in northern Kenya in a week of fierce clashes between rival ethnic groups, aid sources and reports said. The ongoing unrest, centred around the town of Moyale in Marsabit county on the frontier with Ethiopia, has seen villages burned down and many families forced to flee over the border. According to the Standard newspaper, at least 27 people have been killed and thousands more displaced over the past week. Kenyan peace and anti-tribalism campaigner Jaffer Isaak said he believed the toll was somewhere between 70 and 120 dead, while an independent international aid source, who asked not to
Despite ongoing anger about how the U.S. government is snooping on people around the world, one agency is still keen to boast about its spying - with a creepy cartoon octopus and an alarming logo. A top-secret rocket carrying spy satellites for the National Reconnaissance Office launched from the central California coast late on Thursday, and it had a large badge emblazoned on the side The new logo features a huge and sinister octopus, with just one angry eye visible, as it wraps its tentacles round the globe. Written underneath is: ´Nothing Is Beyond Our Reach.´
China is putting the squeeze on the New York Times and Bloomberg News, and it could have severe consequences for press freedom. The nation has blocked internet access to the two organisations´ websites, denied access to key events, such as the recent meeting between British Prime Minister David Cameron and Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, and delayed visa renewal for more than two dozen reporters. [Snip] "Innovation thrives where people breathe freely, speak freely, are able to challenge orthodoxy, where newspapers can report the truth without fear of consequences,´´ Biden said at a meeting with business leaders earlier that day, as
Ministers from 159 countries have reached a deal intended to boost global trade at a meeting in Bali, Indonesia. The World Trade Organization´s first comprehensive agreement involves an effort to simplify the procedures for doing business across borders. There will also be improved duty-free access for goods sold by the world´s poorest countries. The deal, which could add about $1tn to world trade, gives developing nations more scope to increase farm subsidies. "For the first time in our history, the WTO has truly delivered," said WTO chief Roberto Azevedo, as the organisation reached its first comprehensive agreement since it was
The White House has announced that the President and First Lady will be traveling to South Africa next week to pay respects to Nelson Mandela. Mr Obama and his wife Michelle will be attending memorial events for the fallen South African leader but the specific details of when they will arrive or what events they will be attending have not been disclosed. The South African government announced that the formal state funeral will take place on December 15, capping off a 10-day mourning period. The Obamas are just two of a long list of international dignitaries who are expected to
Sasha and Malia Obama helped their dad ring in the holiday season tonight by attending the 91st Annual National Christmas Tree Lighting Ceremony outside the White House. President Obama joked that he would only count down from five to light the tree, since he didn´t want to keep anyone waiting in the rainy weather. ´It´s a little wet out there, so we shouldn´t start at 10,´ the president said. The president then flipped the switch and the tree sprung into multicolored life. The dramatic lighting was followed by performances from Aretha Franklin, who sang ´Joy to the World´, and Mariah Carey.
Family doctors have been accused of failing cancer sufferers after the first ever GP league tables found more than half are not referring such patients to specialists quickly enough. [Snip] Experts said the failure to refer patients quickly explained Britain’s place at the bottom of European league tables, with worse survival rates for major cancers than many countries in Eastern Europe. The national performance data--which covers all 8,000 GP practices in England--enables patients to look up their own surgery, and see how it performs against dozens of indicators about diagnosis and treatment of most of the common diseases and
Almost 50 Russian diplomats and members of their families have been charged in a massive health care fraud scheme, officials announced Thursday. Federal officials allege that 58 of the 63 births to Russian officials living in New York between 2004 and 2013 were fraudulently paid for by Medicare at a cost of roughly $1.5million to US taxpayers. The Russians were applying for these benefits while emptying their pockets at famed stores such as Bloomingdale’s, Jimmy Choo’s, Prada and Tiffany & Co, officials said. The fraudsters carried out the plan by applying for a range of benefits, including Medicare, by falsifying information
Last summer on his $100 million family tour of Africa, Barack Obama hoped for a priceless photo op with Nelson Mandela, the ailing freedom pioneer who went from prison cell to the presidency of South Africa. Mandela´s family suggested that wouldn’t happen. So, the Obamas did a photo op in Mandela´s former prison cell. Which Obama’s White House quickly tweeted upon word of the icon´s passing at 95. [Skip] But Obama was also caught staring at television coverage of Mandela’s passing, which became Obama’s Photo of the Day.
Hardly a week goes by without Hillary Clinton receiving another award. Last month she was named a “Global Champion” by the International Medical Corps, received the American Patriot Award at the National Defense University Foundation and the Hermandad Award from the Mexican American Leadership Initiative. [Snip] At this rate, if a bunch of elderly left-wing Swedes toss her the Nobel Peace Prize early on, the way they did to Obama, it will barely rate mention among all the other glittering trophies that have been bestowed on a woman whose only actual accomplishment was being married to a crooked governor with
Speaker John Boehner said his party should support gay Republican congressional candidates and urged his colleagues to “be a little more sensitive” when running against women. “Some of our members just aren’t as sensitive as they ought to be,” Boehner said. When asked if he thinks his party should support gay candidates, Boehner simply said: “I do.”
Denver - A baker who refused to make a wedding cake for a same-sex ceremony must serve gay couples despite his religious beliefs or face fines, a judge said Friday. The order from administrative law judge Robert N. Spencer said Masterpiece Cakeshop in suburban Denver discriminated against a couple "because of their sexual orientation by refusing to sell them a wedding cake for their same-sex marriage." The order says the cake-maker must "cease and desist from discriminating" against gay couples. Although the judge did not impose fines in this case, the business will face penalties if it continues to turn away gay
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
In February, the Bush family’s personal emails were hacked by Guccifer, a hacker who uncovered photographs of former President George H. W. Bush in a hospital bed and George W. Bush’s oil paintings in the process. It seems Guccifer has struck again, this time targeting former President Bill Clinton and the Clinton Library. The hacker has reportedly uncovered doodles of Clinton drawing on what were, at the time, classified documents. Among the doodles is apparently a picture of a penis. The document uncovered is a briefing of the strategic measures the United States could take prior Clinton’s decision to intervene in
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
Former President Bill Clinton shared an anecdote regarding Nelson Mandela and the aftermath of his impeachment Friday on CNN. Clinton revealed shortly after the “impeachment business” finished on Capitol Hill, Rep. Henry Hyde (R., Ill.) who managed the impeachment trial requested a meeting at the White House. The former president granted the meeting out of lessons of humility and forgiveness he learned from Mandela, he said: BILL CLINTON: I remember one day, oh, about a month after the whole impeachment business was over, Henry Hyde, who had run the whole show, unbelievably enough, maybe a few months after, it was

One definition of a pathological liar is someone who lies where the truth would serve just as well. When President Obama’s uncle, Onyango Obama, was arrested in 2011 for drunk driving, the truth — that Obama had stayed with his uncle years earlier for several weeks as a Harvard law student — would have served the president just fine. No potential Obama voter would have held it against him that an uncle he had stayed with two decades earlier was picked up for DUI. Yet the White House went with a lie, claiming that Obama had never met his uncle. Now that
On Tuesday, The Boston Globe reported that Onyango “Omar” Obama, uncle to President Obama, says that his famous nephew stayed with him while a student at Harvard Law School in the 80s, in contradiction to The White House’s contention that the two had never met. At Thursday’s White House daily briefing, Press Secretary Jay Carney confirmed that the President had, in fact, briefly stayed with “his father’s half-brother,” as Carney described Omar Obama, and that no one had actually asked the President about it when the White House initially commented. The 69 year-old Omar Obama has been facing deportation back
