The Most Un-American Speech
Barack Obama Has Ever Delivered

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 4/1/2014 8:18:49 PM

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

Would you expect a "pro American" speech from Fidel Castro? Hugo Chavez? Mahmoud Ahmadinejad? Osama bin Laden?

Same deal. More apparent every day.

If The Precious and Sebelius were officers of a public company and they had reported these faux stats as part of their filings with the SEC they both would already be in jail the way Jeff Skilling, et al., are still doing time for cooking Enron´s books.

The most amazing bit of trivia with them knowing how many signed up as of midnight last night......never had they (obama and Selebius) ever been able to quote a figure of number who had signed up. Her comments to Congress were always it would take a couple of weeks or a month to have that info.
What changed?? Surely not improved website functions.

FTA...The president criticized Americans who donated their own money to run ads opposing Obamacare. But Barack Obama used government force to take Americans’ money and use that money to promote his law — whether we backed his law or not. Which is worse?

The radio I have on all the time switched to live coverage of the speech for a few seconds or I wouldn´t have heard it at all. What I did hear was the part about Republicans having to explain their actions to the few who have benefited. I say the Democrats have a lot more to explain for to a lot more than a few.

Are we talking about a knock on the door in the middle of the night ? "You won´t need to pack a bag...your wife will be just fine."

We need to be thankful for our second Amendment every day. O and thugs will stop at nothing to take our guns. The rule of law is so inconvenient for thugs, socialist and the like.

Can anyone name one item that O and his regime has done to help our nation ? I can. He has smoked the msm out of their decades long sham of being a fair and balanced press.

Nearly 31 years ago, Richard Nixon stood in the same Rose Garden and tried to rally a dispirited group of Federal employees. Allegations of wrongdoing within his inner circle had swept the nation as a result of burglary at the Watergate complex in D.C. Near the end of his remarks, Nixon said, "Let others wallow in Watergate!" He then extolled the group to do their jobs. Like Obama yesterday, Nixon´s speech was a cynical, deliberate attempt at misdirection and false bravado. Like Nixon´s, Obama´s presentation is designed to mislead the uninformed and convince them that all is well and that his detractors are dishonest. Look how well it turned out for Tricky Dick.

He isn´t really fooling anyone. Those who have signed up because they lost their previous plans and those who have either lost their job or had their hours cut back have a new reality. The resentment will grow and fester as it becomes harder and harder to maintain the standard of living they once had.

A further slap in the face to all of us is the cost of gasoline which seems to increase a few cents each day. Those who still have a job and drive to work are experiencing a higher cost just to go to work. This president hasn´t budged on the XLpipeline which would ease gas prices.

Bottom line is: Barry Obama is a closet Muslim who would rather bow to the Saudi king than to uphold the U.S. Constitution.

#14, the only difference is that Richard Nixon, despite all his other character flaws, was still pro-America and promoted his country´s interests in the world. Obama is anti-America and cares only for himself.

Obama has no credibility. His credibility was in question when running for president back in 2008. Obama destroyed his own credibility shortly after becoming president through his lies. By now, it is common knowledge that he lies all the time. Nobody really believes him anymore. The only people that listen to his speeches are the propagandists that prop him up.

Obama is king of the kindergarten playground and a bully. Who would expect a US president to stand up and be "super-snarky" about taking all the candy from all the little kids who happen to be smaller than he is. It is time for the rest of the kids on the playground to figure out how to put him in the dungeon.

Obama uses the phrase of "what the people want" frivolously. He will do what all dictators do when he must. He does not care that the majority oppose this law. He will do what all dictators do with opposition, he will eliminate them, fear rises and no one dare oppose. Then the promise of "fundamentally changing" this nation is a totalitarian success.

Right, #16. Another difference is that Nixon´s malfeasance was directed at political opponents. BO´s power grab is directed at the American people, and as the article brilliantly puts it, BO & regime will not and can not admit "that it used naked, brute force to coerce Americans into signing up for Obamacare."

This is truly outrageous because it is cementing in place a permanent intrusive authority over every most personal decision we will make in our lives.

The aspect of force, this overarching power which robs us of liberty and privacy, OUGHT to drive every citizen into opposition. There OUGHT to be outrage, vocal, active.

Finally, we are fighting against the pernicious behavior of the so-called mainstream media, now unabashedly the propaganda wing of this leftist democrat Party.

THIS (and crummy public education) is why the numbers of uninformed is so large, and why we have such an enormous task to inform the ignorant before they scramble on board space-ship Obamacare grasping the Plan pamphlet, like the starving humans did in Twilight Zone as they eagerly boarded the space-ship clutching the cookbook which was "How to Cook..." (humans).....

Last thing. Never has a POTUS, increasingly pompous and arrogant, treated the American people with such sarcasm, contempt, condescension, hatred.

For those who "follow him", if they think he likes or appreciates them, they are fools. They are "useful idiots."

The law cannot be repealed by the will of the whole population but the president by himself can change the constitution on a whim every day. As Mark Levin says often the constitution is not on the ballot. It should be firmer than any statute but with a lawless president this too is turned on it´s head!

Obama"s bald faced, smiling lying is committed daily with the approval of almost everyone who appears on television.
The Nazis had one chief propagandist who concentrated
Hitler´s evil to Germany, hust one Josef Goebbels.

Starting with the networks, we have three key propagandists supporting the lies of the pResident, Pelley Williams Sawyers, PLUS dozens of other key network propagandists, and cable too, hundreds of sponsors who approve and PAY for the unending stream
of lying propaganda, then top it off with all the Letterman
Arsenio Whoopi personalities who won´t even joke about the worst White House lies! The tragedy is that even your local city news and personalities will not speak out
They all have pre screened socialist , but even now they dare not speak out honestly.

So, we have a stacked deck. That´s the bad news.
The good news: more and more honest journalists like BRYAN PRESTON are emerging through good services like PJMedia !

#29. Isn´t it simply amazing how his background has been so completely scrubbed, almost as if he is non-existant. Back to the story, they´re the ones doing the counting. Was there really ever a doubt that they could come up with 7 million, a number they pulled from the top of their head? How many of the 7 million were people who lost their insurance because of this travesty. Then there is the problem of how many have actually paid. No pay, no play as someone else said long ago.

Polygraphs were invented with BHO in mind. I’m convinced of it. Polygraph – a device also referred to as a lie detector machine (for any Democrats who may be reading this) – should be hard-wired to BHO inasmuch as virtually every word he utters turns out to be a lie. Some have described him as having delusional tendencies. They’ll get no argument from me. Just once, I’d like him to act like an American citizen. Based on what he has shown us thus far, his behavior is that of a power-obsessed foreigner oblivious to the rule of law. “My Way or the Highway” is his way of acting Presidential.

‘May God Bless America’ has never been more meaningful.

#4 ~ I almost agree with you but I don´t think that Obama is the AntiChrist (even though it feels that way). The reason I believe that is from all that I´ve read and heard the ´AC´ is a powerful, spellbinding orator on ALL occasions. So I imagine that he won´t use a teleprompter and when SeeBS interviews him his answers will not be sprinkled with uh, um, hm, or ´let me be perfectly clear´.
We will HATE what he says but he is supposed to have a total command of the language.

With all of the talking going around about the signing up for Obozocare, there is one simple fact that isn´t being mentioned very much. And that is that, as it is currently construed, Obozocare will collapse on it´s own at sometime in the not to far future. As it is written, and the response of the MAJORITY of Americans to it, there simply is no way it can survive. And it seems as if the dims can´t see that. It´s the money aspect, stupid. People can´t afford the premiums, the deductibles are far too high, and all of them will only go higher. It can´t survive that.

A despicable man who stands in front of the WH and gloats about fictitious data as being beneficial to the people of the Country. The most basic point is how many people are uninsured currently verses how many were in that category prior to the passage of the ACA law, which, depending on which day you listened to the news from the Administration, ranged from 35 to 45 million. Secondly, how many people are on Medicaid verses how many were on Medicaid prior to the law´s passage.
and lastly, since this is all personal, how many people will cast a vote against Obamacare in November because it has personally affected their ability to obtain healthcare and their financial situation. Who cares what the President says / It´s what happens to each individual that matters. and worse is yet to come when all the delays of the law end, if ever. People are dying because they could not get the healthcare they required, under this law, whereas, before its passage, they were alive. That´s a simple vote for those still alive. My opinions.

BO and his toadies change the goalposts, even to pushing them at less than before they started, and declaring victory or shifting the blame to someone else. Their constant failure is NEVER their fault.

We have the first affirmative action administration. You always succeed because success is needed for your self esteem.

King Gollumbama is like the character in The Hobbit. A miserable creature with The Ring, his most treasured possession, and his complete obsession and addiction. Existing in the dark underworld where the light of truth never shines. He is obsessed with it´s magical powers it gives him and will do anything and everything he can to keep it. Lie, cheat, steal, threaten, punish, intimidate, manipulate, all those things that good dictators are made of. A man of no moral compass, an man of no allegiance to the flag or to the Republic for which it stands with no belief in God, liberty of any justice for anyone at all and especially those who oppose him or speak out against him. Only belief in big all powerful benevolent government and a marxist socialist ideology which he will impose on all of us because he says so, and he knows whats best. Un-American? What do you expect from a totally un-American President? Had enough yet?

#37, they aren´t talking about it because that was the plan all along - when 0bamacare crashes, zippy and his thugs will shove single payer down our throats and tell us that they have no choice but to do it - for the good of everyone. At that point we are completely scrood. It´s why they hired 16,000 new IRS agents and then armed them. Where do you think those billions of bullets are going?

Nice list of the questions raised by the 7 million claimed, but I believe it should also include:
-- what percent of the 7 million already had insurance and had it cancelled because of Obamacare, and how does their new 0care insurance compare in cost and coverage to their former policy?

-- what percent of the 7 million were actually without any insurance before 0care? These were ostensibly the people that 0Care was supposed to save, but they were never in any danger anyway, since hospitals have been forced for years by the gov´t to give free care.

-- how many Americans have either lost their job or been cut back to half time because of the burdens placed on employers by 0Care?

So is a single American actually better off since 0Care started? I doubt it.

Common Core math? They said there were around three million sign-ups several weeks ago.
Tell us, college kids beyond the age of 26 were in Spring Break in March, so maybe that´s a hundred.
Just where did this magic number come from? His magic hat? Certainly not from God-fearing, patriotic Americans. Pathetic!

Legendary Marine Maj. Zembiec,
the ‘Lion of Fallujah,’ died
in the service of the CIA
Washington Post, by Thomas Gibbons-Neff    Original Article

In the foyer of the Central Intelligence Agency’s headquarters, there is a marble wall covered in stars. They are carved divots that represent those who have fallen in the service of the CIA. Below them, jutting out from the polished rock, is a black book entombed in a case of glass and steel. The book is a guide to the stars, giving the names of some of those who died and withholding the names of others. On the pages of the CIA’s Book of Honor are 107 hand-drawn stars organized by the years those officers died. For 2007, there is

Hamas is playing a dangerous
game with Gazan lives

SO FAR Hamas’s military campaign against Israel has been a dismal failure. Thanks in part to Israel’s Iron Dome anti-missile system, some 1,200 rockets fired at Tel Aviv, Jerusalem and other cities have caused only one Israeli death and a few other casualties. Attempted commando attacks via the sea and a tunnel were stopped short, and a drone that ventured into Israel was quickly shot down. Yet Hamas on Tuesday rejected an Egyptian cease-fire proposal that was supported by Western governments and the Arab League and had been accepted by Israel. Why would Hamas insist on continuing the fight when

Sarah Palin is right about
impeaching President Obama

Sarah Palin is right about impeaching President Obama. No, not that the president should be impeached. But Palin is correct in arguing that, for those who assert that Obama has grievously abused his executive authority, impeachment is the proper course of action. Of course this won’t happen, for the obvious reason that this tactic didn’t go so well for Republicans last time. Hence House Speaker John Boehner’s curt dismissal of Palin’s call for impeachment: “I disagree.” Boehner’s alternative — a lawsuit — offers the political benefits of draining impeachment fever from the more rabid Republican precincts while rallying the base

Israel’s vow to strengthen attacks
against Hamas in Gaza puts
U.S. in tough position

Israel’s pledge to intensify its military operation in the Gaza Strip could hasten the moment when the Obama administration will be forced to decide whether to use its leverage to corral its closest ally in the Middle East. Israeli officials, in a series of television interviews, statements and social-media venues, said Tuesday that Hamas’s rejection of a cease-fire offer validated the force it has used over eight days of conflict and made legitimate their argument for a wider military effort. The Obama administration appeared to accept that rationale, blaming the armed Islamist movement in Gaza for missing an opportunity to

Muslims Turn away from Islamism

The Pew Research Center, a subsidiary of The Pew Charitable Trusts, has the means to sample opinion with unique frequency and on a major scale. It has used its funds to track Muslim attitudes toward Islamism in general, toward specific terrorist groups in particular, and also toward suicide bombing over the past decade. The most recent study, “Concerns about Islamic Extremism on the Rise in Middle East,” released on July 1, conducted among 14,244 respondents in 14 countries between April 10 and May 25, 2014, holds much interest. Pew summarized the overall results: As well-publicized bouts of violence, from civil

Obama at Iftar: ‘We Welcome That Debate’
on ‘Heart-Wrenching’ Images from Gaza, Israel

President Obama told guests at the White House’s annual Iftar dinner tonight that “further escalation” in the Middle East “benefits no one, least of all the Israeli and the Palestinian people.” Faced with criticism from some Arab and Muslim activists who think he has been too friendly toward the Israeli side, Obama addressed the conflict near the end of his comments, which largely honored “the traditions of one of the world’s great faiths.” “For all of us, whatever our faiths, Ramadan is a reminder of just how much we share. The values of peace and charity, the importance of family

Illegal immigrants in D.C. fail
written driver’s test at 80% rate
Washington Times, by Crystal Hill    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 7/14/2014 10:34:00 PM     Post Reply
Four out of five illegal immigrants seeking driver’s licenses under a new D.C. law have failed a written knowledge test — a rocky start to a program that in its first two months has issued 268 licenses, according to city officials. The failure rate of 80 percent compares with a 58 percent failure rate for people seeking traditional driver’s licenses, the Department of Motor Vehicles told a D.C. Council committee. In addition, a check of the DMV website this week shows a massive backlog in appointments required to apply for the District’s “limited-purpose license.” The first available date for an

Another swing and a miss
for Obama’s foreign policy

President Obama has described his foreign-policy doctrine as an attempt to hit singles, doubles and the occasional home run. But at this stage of the game, it looks as though he has popped out, grounded into a double play and been hit by a pitch. His attorney general, Eric Holder, said Sunday that the threat of undetectable explosives from Syria is “more frightening than anything” he has experienced in office. And the Wall Street Journal ran a front-page article Monday reporting that “the breadth of global instability now unfolding hasn’t been seen since the late 1970s” and that “U.S. global

ASHKELON, Israel — The roar of sirens echoed across this sun-kissed city Monday afternoon, and in a heartbeat the woman in the pink bikini was out of the pool, shepherding her three young kids to the nearest shelter. Up above, the vapor trail of a rocket fired from Gaza, just 10 miles down the coast, ripped the clear blue sky. And then, a boom: The rocket had been shot down. The kids jumped back in the seaside pool, and their mother returned to her tanning. Through it all, the lifeguard had barely stirred. Such is the dichotomous reality this week

Canadian Prime Minister
Condemns Obama, West

In a stunning rebuke of President Obama’s tepid calls for Israel to show "restraint" in response to daily rocket fire on Israeli civilian targets by Hamas terror redoubts in Gaza, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, long considered Israel’s best friend and strongest defender, all but condemned President Obama by name for what he regards as Washington’s irresolute support for Israel during its time of grave crisis. In perhaps his most strongly worded statement to date, Prime Minister Harper proclaimed that self defense is "not merely an Israeli right" to be exercised only in the abstract, but an "Israeli obligation" that

Ponder for a minute what AFSCME has done. The union has severed ties with the United Negro College Fund because the Koch brothers contributed $25 million to the fund. Or rather, because the fund accepted the contribution. The money will pay for 3,000 scholarships and other needs. To read about this episode, go here. The hatred whipped up against the Koch brothers has become nearly frightening, I think. It is undemocratic, unsettling, intolerant. I’ve never liked it when left-leaning types say, “So-and-so scares me,” or, “This scares me.” There was a bumper sticker in the 2000s that said Bush Scares

Needed: A new team of rivals

Maybe it is time for a shake-up. President Obama’s second-term staffing was always going to be a risk. He abandoned his first term’s team of rivals for a closer-knit team of loyalists. The bet was that he was assured enough in the job to no longer need the in-house challenge — and that smooth-running consensus would compensate for the loss. The bet isn’t paying off. Overseas and at home, the administration seems besieged and befuddled. Obama is in danger of cementing an image of haplessness that would be hard to undo. The administration was surprised when Russian President Vladimir Putin

The U.S. deported Honduran children as young as 1-1/2 years old on Monday in the first flight since President Obama pledged to speed up the process of sending back illegal immigrant minors from Central America. Fleeing violence and poverty, record numbers of children from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala have crossed into the United States over the past year, sparking intense debate about how to solve the problem. Monday´s flight from New Mexico to San Pedro Sula, the city with the highest murder rate in the world, returned 17 Honduran women, as well as 12 girls and nine boys, aged

The Obama administration quietly announced on Tuesday that it intends to change the way Americans learn about natural disasters and other major emergencies during radio and TV broadcasts, giving the president the ability to flip a switch and address the entire nation at once. The Emergency Alert System, the latest version of a program first established in 1951, blasts out emergency messages in the event of local weather emergencies, but can also be used to warn Americans about terror attacks and major natural disasters.

In his message to the “Mexico/Holy See Colloquium on Migration and Development,” Pope Francis characterized the tens of thousands of illegal immigrants that have crossed the U.S. southern border as a product of globalization, suggesting that the phenomenon is happening worldwide. Francis proclaimed, “Despite the large influx of migrants present in all continents and in almost all countries, migration is still seen as an emergency, or as a circumstantial and sporadic fact, while instead it has now become a hallmark of our society and a challenge.” Emmer McCarthy for Vatican Radio said Francis expressed his concern for “the tens of thousands of

The First Lady of these United States has declared war on Chick-fil-A. It seems the home of plump juicy breasts and hot buttered buns has run afoul of the new Smart Snacks in School program. The program is a component of Mrs. Obama’s Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010. The new government regulations require snack items served in public schools to have less than two hundred calories. That includes vending machines, lunch rooms and other campus food venues. And that’s really bad news for kids at South Carolina’s Socastee High School. They’ve just learned they will no longer be allowed to buy Chick-fil-A

“Trust” is for Con Men: The reaction to the border chaos in Texas has accomplished one thing: It has exploded the lie at the heart of current “comprehensive” immigration reform plans. The basic structure of those plans is a swap of a) near-immediate legalization for b) increased border security in the future. The appealing idea is to let current illegals stay while taking the steps necessary to prevent further waves. The lie is the assumption that, once current illegals get their legalization, pro-immigrant activists in both parties will continue to support the second half of the bargain, the increased security.

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has warned all of his colleagues in Congress that President Barack Obama’s new immigration strategy—his plans to legalize millions of illegal alien adults through executive power—could destroy America as we know it. “I write to inform you of a development that threatens the foundation of our constitutional Republic,” Sessions, Congress’s top immigration hawk, wrote in a letter that was hand-delivered to all 535 members of Congress on Monday and provided exclusively to Breitbart News. Sessions cites a recent report from the National Journal, in which reporter Major Garrett detailed how, despite the ongoing

Attorney General Eric Holder encouraged Americans not to forget race while working for justice and equality in their country. “As it stands, our society is not yet color blind -- nor should it be -- given the disparities that still afflict and divide us.” Holder explained, “We must be color brave, and we must never forget that all are made better and more prosperous if all are given equal opportunities.” Holder made his remarks during a speech at Howard University on Tuesday for the 50th Anniversary Celebration of the Civil Rights Act. “We must take into account not only the

WASHINGTON — It was an enduring image of his presidency: a chastened Bill Clinton walking his dog while wife Hillary keeps her distance as the family leaves town at the height of the Monica Lewinsky scandal — but it was all part of a contrived public-repentance campaign, according to a new book. With Bill on the skids and his wife’s future prospects on the line, it was necessary for the pubic to see the president being punished, said Weekly Standard online editor Daniel Halper in his new book, “Clinton, Inc.: The Audacious Rebuilding of a Political Machine.” “They understood that
