Time for Congress to draw
a real red line for Obama

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

Original Article

Posted By:SurferLad, 9/4/2013 9:27:36 AM

According to the latest on-demand legend of this White House, President Obama was thoughtfully walking the White House grounds with a senior aide the other day. When it suddenly occurred to the former constitutional law lecturer that he could ask Congress for permission to start a war with Syria, as required by the nation´s Constitution. This from the former member of Congress who, as president for the last 1,688 days, has gone around that equal branch of government whenever convenient.

Listening to the news conference in Sweden. 0bama said in answer to a question that he did not draw a red line, congress drew the red line, the world drew a red line. Dear God, how can he get away with these bald faced lies. I hope congress takes notice that he is throwing them under the bus.

More wag the dog? Not hearing much about the scandals any more, are we? Don´t forget about the State Dept (Bengazi), NSA, IRS, DOJ. This administration is disgusting.

Scores of White House visits
and Sebelius never mentioned
ObamaCare troubles?
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Here´s the opening of our column from last Oct. 23: “According to Kathleen Sebelius, Barack Obama knew nothing, absolutely nothing, about the fundamental problems with the Oct. 1 roll-out of his namesake legislation that will affect nearly one-fifth of the nation´s economy.” [Snip] But, turns out, Sebelius was at the White House scores of times and met with Obama 18 times. Somehow, the approaching train wreck never came up. Uh-huh.

Obama´s clever campaign to

Among the many costs of the Barack Obama presidency is an intentional corrosion for its own political gain of public faith in so many American institutions, among them Congress, the Supreme Court and the media. If numerous sectors of society are feuding or distrustful of each other, then a well-controlled central authority like a chief executive can more easily rule the pieces. It´s classic Chicago politics. Reporters Without Borders has released its annual World Press Freedom Index. What´s shocking is the United States’ ranking. During the fifth year of Obama´s reign the U.S. plummeted 13 spots to 46th.

"It was the best of times, it was the worst of times, it was the age of wisdom, it was the age of foolishness." In "A Tale of Two Cities," Charles Dickens quilled those lines about 18th century France and Britain. But as often happens with great writing, the expressed sensibilities about one time in history also apply to others like, say, 21st century Washington. [Snip] Truth is, there might not be a United States as we recognize it without our even older friendship with France.

Letterman: The main Sochi hotel for the Olympics I think is called the Two Seasons. Instead of a little chocolate on your pillow, the Russian maids leave a potato. Conan: Twelve new events at this Winter Olympics. The new events include women’s ski jumping, luge team relay and finding a working toilet. Fallon: Did you see the Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony? There was a massive fireworks display. And that was just when someone plugged a hairdryer in at the hotel. Conan: We just had Groundhog Day. The groundhog came out, saw five minutes of the Super Bowl and then went right back into his hole.

   

 

  


 
What Rand Paul needs

Here´s a little unsolicited suggestion for likely 2016 Republican presidential candidate Rand Paul: Ditch the Clinton-Lewinsky meme. Twice in recent days, the Kentucky senator has gone out of his way to drag into his comments Bill Clinton´s smelly sexual scandal with a White House intern. [Snip] Once again, as in 2007-08 Hillary Clinton seems to be a lock for the Democrat presidential nomination in 2016. Do we really want to drag her name into the midterm´s political discourse as the wronged woman, another victim of another philandering spouse?

Normally, Joe Biden´s vice presidential duties involve funerals and speaking in places that The Boss won´t be bothered about. But this time was different. No, Philadelphia in February isn´t your prime get-away destination. But while there for a photo op, Joe descended into the bowels of the train station to pretend-drive a locomotive. It´s one of the new electric choos-choos that Amtrak will use to haul Democrats up and down the Northeast Corridor. It was very exciting for the vice president as he ponders a 2016 run.

Hi, everybody. In my State of the Union Address, I talked about the idea of opportunity for all. Opportunity is the idea at the heart of this country — that no matter who you are or how you started out, with hard work and responsibility, you can get ahead. I ran for President to restore that idea, and I’m even more passionate about it today. Because while our economy has been growing for four years, and those at the top are doing better than ever, average wages have barely budged.

Not a smidgeon of credibility
in Obama´s IRS claim
Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

According to the president of the United States, the IRS scandal over agents targeting conservative groups is merely the result of "bone-headed decisions" by a few confused employees. And Barack Obama adds there’s not a "smidgeon" of corruption. Wait! Remember when this scandal broke last May, a president looking much like Barack Obama was so totally publicly outraged over this violation of government trust that he fired the IRS´ acting commissioner? Yet now, it´s all simply an unfortunate few instances of bone-headeded-ness that just happened to prevent dozens of groups opposed to Obama from participating in the 2012 election campaign.

It´s time for a real executive

Don´t be fooled into thinking that the 2016 presidential race and its main competitors will be determined in Washington. It can look that way with Washington media talking to Washington inmates about Washington issues on Washington shows. Rand Paul. Hillary Clinton. Marco Rubio. Ted Cruz. Paul Ryan. Peter King. (Just kidding.) Because these past 1,842 days with a rookie senator pretending to be the nation´s chief executive have shown how really well that works.

Five years of Obama promises:

Did you ever find an old high school yearbook and shake your head at what´s changed since then? Not just the obvious clothing and hairstyles. But so many of the plans and promise of so many people. That´s what we did. We went back 1,818 days to one of the first speeches Barack Obama gave as the 44th president. Back to Feb. 12, 2009, less than a month from his first morning in office. There he was in East Peoria, Ill., at the massive Caterpillar factory, selling his then $879 billion stimulus spending plan wending its way through Congress.

Leno: Obama´s State of the Union was last week. He decided against discussing drugs because he´s not sure which side he´s on. Fallon: Super Bowl yesterday. The stadium food service said it would offer healthy choices like kale sandwiches. So all the hungry people knew where the shortest food line would be. Leno: The Border Patrol seized 670 pounds of cocaine hidden in a car stopped south of LA. But the Grammys went on anyway.

You may not have been thinking about it at the time, but on Tuesday, when the president was delivering the State of the Union, we were observing a tradition prescribed by our Constitution. All branches of government and all walks of life gathering round in the people’s House. It is democracy at its finest. But these blessings do come with responsibilities. The Constitution also requires the president and Congress to heed the will of you, the people, and work together to carry out the business of the country. So in that spirit, Republicans identified 4 areas of bipartisanship.

Famed former CNN host Larry King said he has never heard of Juanita Broaddrick Thursday in an interview with Steve Malzberg on Newsmax TV. Broadrrick, a former Arkansas nursing home worker, accused President Clinton of raping her during the late 1970s in a 1998 Dateline interview. Malzberg was describing a double standard of media coverage during the 2012 conventions, noting left wing pundits dubbed the GOP convention a “convention of rapists” while remaining silent on President Clinton’s keynote address despite sexual assault allegations directed against the former president. King interjected “Hold up, hold up. Stop! Bill Clinton was accused of rape?” Malzberg reacted

Establishment Republicans and a right-wing group of former spies and special forces operatives that says it is nonpartisan but has historical Republican ties are raising a ruckus over Hillary Rodham Clinton´s handling of the 2012 assault on U.S. installations in Benghazi, Libya. The criticism of Clinton over the deadly attacks appears to be a preview of what the former secretary of state can expect should she pursue a presidential bid in 2016.(Snip)At the same time, more personal accusations have been laid against Clinton by OPSEC (military slang for "operational security"), a group of former special forces and intelligence operatives that

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius was in direct contact with President Barack Obama at least 18 times between October 2012 and October 2013, including seven occasions where her draft calendar showed Obamacare as the topic of conversation. The news appears to contradict her insistence that Obama was in the dark about problems plaguing the ill-fated healthcare.gov website in the months leading up to its October 1, 2013 launch. The Hill newspaper reported Thursday that documents released through a Freedom of Information Act request show meetings, events and phone calls where the two were together. They also show at

In a segment on last night’s Hardball with Chris Matthews, political commentator and prodigal GOP son Ron Reagan called out Sen. Ted Cruz’s latest filibustering of a Senate bill to increase the debt ceiling as self-destructive maneuver that achieved nothing — except, perhaps, hastened the destruction of the GOP. “What exactly was on Ted Cruz’s mind?” a boggled Reagan asked. “What was he thinking of in terms of his Senate colleagues? They could have all voted against the debt limit increase, they could have all gone home to their constituents in Tennessee or Kentucky or wherever, and they could have said,

Less than 24 hours after President Obama illegally rewrote the law he had previously jammed down Boehner´s -- and the country´s -- throat, Boehner handed the budding dictator a clean debt-ceiling hike. Last October, Obama vindictively shut down the federal government upon his having refused to delay ObamaCare, which of course is exactly what he himself lawlessly did on February 10, 2014! Of course, Boehner is hardly in a position to argue now, having foolishly (immensely so) accepted responsibility for the shutdown. Never mind Boehner´s cowardice (we´ll get to that in a moment); what kind of moron cedes that kind of maneuverability to

At least every week now, there is a new story supporting the narrative of an inevitable 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential bid. Indeed, the conventional wisdom is that it is an absolute certainty that she will run. If anyone is currently saying, flat out, that Hillary isn´t running, I haven´t come across them. Is the inevitability of her run really as certain as the conventional wisdom suggests, and further, is it unfolding in an optimal manner for the potential candidate? In all likelihood, Clinton will not make a final, "go-or-no-go" decision until early next year, after the dust has settled from

I imagine the only thing worse than being forced to watch CNN inside an airport terminal is being forced to watch it in a doctor’s office. So you can imagine my surprise when I discovered a Michigan health care facility, funded by federal tax dollars, blocked Fox News Channel from its waiting room television sets. The president of Family Health Care directed staff to block Fox News after a board member complained about our network’s coverage of the Affordable Care Act, an employee told me. “The board member complained that patients were turning the channel to Fox News,” said the employee who asked

The school of literary criticism known as reception theory holds that a text should be studied in light of its effect on its contemporaries, that a reader should be aware of the “horizon of expectations” in which a text is produced. I was reminded of this the other day as I observed, in amusement, fascination, and occasional pity, the reaction of the so-called mainstream media to Alana Goodman’s lengthy and rock-solid report on “The Hillary Papers.” This trove of previously unexamined transcriptions of conversations between Hillary Clinton and her best friend Diane Blair had been collecting dust at the University

Demonic Possession:

Is demonic possession real or the manifestation of mental illness? In assisting priests in nearly 100 exorcisms, Adam Blai has become a true believer in good and evil, God and the devil. "If you’ve seen the things in the Gospels played out in front of you, it ceases to become faith. It’s knowledge,” says Blai. Former Allegheny County commissioner Bob Cranmer says he shares that same knowledge. He says his home was possessed. “I’ve seen it; I’ve seen crucifixes bent in half repeatedly. I’ve seen Rosary beads torn apart. That doesn’t happen,” said Cranmer. “That’s an evil. That’s not Casper

We cheered a week ago, when President Obama used the National Prayer Breakfast to call for release of two Americans. The first is Kenneth Bae, a prisoner of North Korea. The other is Saeed Abedini, a prisoner of Iran. Each has been sentenced to long prison terms for “crimes” that only a criminal regime would deem criminal: Bae for ministering to Christians and Abedini for work on behalf of house churches. Alas, the week since Obama’s call confirms a depressing fact about America’s diminished standing in the world these days. Pyongyang packed Bae off to one of its labor camps in the vast
