Obama to Congress: I don´t
need new permission on Iraq

CNN, by Barbara Starr*

Original Article

Posted By:earlybird, 6/18/2014 7:42:58 PM

Washington -- I´ll let you know what´s going on, but I don´t need new congressional authority to act, President Barack Obama told congressional leaders Wednesday about his upcoming decision on possible military intervention in Iraq. The White House meeting sounded more like a listening session for the top Republicans and Democrats in the House and Senate about options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad that Obama is considering. According to a White House statement, Obama went over U.S. efforts to "strengthen the capacity of Iraq´s security forces to confront the threat" from

The leadership on both sides were all smiles when photographed meeting with Obama today. McConnell and Boehner appeared to be having a grand old time at the WH as did Pelosi and Reid. Must be great to not have a worry in the world.

The article states that a topic discussed during the meeting was “options for helping Iraq´s embattled Shiite government halt the lightning advance of Sunni Islamist fighters toward Baghdad.” Maliki agreed years ago on a government with power shared between Shiites, Sunnis and Kurds; it only became a Shiite government because Obama lost leverage over Maliki allowing him to renege on his previous agreement.

The situation was further exacerbated by Obama’s refusal to take any publicly known action in Syria, allowing for “ Sunni Islamist fighters” to organize their recent attacks in Western Iraq. It appears as though Obama’s intelligence apparatus was unaware of how imminent the attacks were until they actually occurred.

I guess this is the kind of foreign policy that is expected when the most impressive credentials of the person in charge are those as a community organizer.

The GOP has to get rid of their WEAK leadership. They are responsible for this Country too. They are there to keep the POTUS in check and to follow the laws that have been passed by Congress.

It´s against the law for BO to act alone. If GWB did that they media would have flipped out and called for impeachment.

BO doesn´t like freedoms. He´s a radical himself.

Okay then, Barry, since there are no obstacles in your way, why haven´t you hit ISIS while they are still on the road to Baghdad? American casualties would be light and they would be caught out in the desert like roaches in the kitchen, target practice for fighter jets. But no, you will dither until they take over the city and then think about it some more on the golf course. You want them to invade Baghdad, don´t you? You love to watch muslims kill people, don´t you?

This will not end well. Obama has made a huge mess that would require taking the fight back to Iraq and he does not have the stomach for it. This is what you get when you take half measures. The only thing we can be sure of is that American servicemen/women will be slaughtered. Obama will never agree to do what needs to be done. Most Americans wouldn´t agree with it either. We have tired of unending war when abject defeat of the enemy is not the goal.

These barbarians have fought for thousands of years. This is entertainment to them. Obama and the rest of the political class in Washington DC need to take a hard look at the enemy before they commit any troops. Failing to finish what was started is doubly hard and frankly, I am sick and tired of our men and women being sacrificed on the altar of political correctness. The world would rather be consumed by islam´s barbarism than defeat it. This is not the WWII mindset we are dealing with here where defeating evil is a moral imperative. The world will fall into chaos because it has lost its will to recognize there is real evil in the world and that good men must defeat it.

Between now and Jan 2017, he can paper the world with his dictates. On Jan 20, 2017 we can gather them together put them on a barge and ceremonially burn them at sea. For every new dictate, we need to turn to Harry Reid and ask, Did you advise and consent? We need to insist that the press cover that the President has usurped power to start war and the Senate has no response.

Don´t all of you people understand? He, Obozo, WON. Not once but twice. As such, he gets to do anything he wants to do at anytime he chooses. So there./s

A bit more serious. These Islamic crowds have been acting this way for centuries. They have never been civilized as we understand the word. All they know is brute force. And the one with the most force gets to rule, not govern, in any way they want to. And over time, they have come to realize that people like we Americans have this aversion of killing and torturing those who simply don´t agree with us. As such, they know full well that all they have to do is wait us out until someone (just like Obozo) comes along and that opens the way for them to go on a rampage. Just like they are now doing. If we, the USA, wants to bring peace and civilization to that part of the world, about the only way it can be done is to destroy what is now there and re-build up from the ground up.

How long will conservative citizens cry out for an unresponsive Congress to do their bidding? When will it dawn on conservatives that it is down to the citizens to express their will outside of the corrupted voting process? A slight majority of real US citizens self identify as right-of-center but act as if they are an oppressed minority, which will soon be the case if waiting and complaining is the best that conservatives are able to muster.

Conservatives number over 100 million. There are only "too few" if conservative citizens remain passive. Borrow a page from the 60s Civil Rights movement and be willing to sacrifice a little now to prevent losing everything later. Or is freedom and the rule of law based on the US Constitution simply a "nice to have" but not fundamental to everything real Americans hold dear?

Au contraire. He’s already doing the only thing that needs to be done –- according to him. Namely, stay out of the way while his Sunni co-religionists re-establish the 8th-century Caliphate… this time, worldwide.

Biden: The Change We Promised

Vice President Joe Biden said Wednesday the “hope and change” promised by President Obama and himself in 2008 never happened. Biden was speaking at the Generation Progress, a segment of the Center for American Progress dedicated to student and youth advocacy. “Look folks, this is within our power to change,” Biden said to the crowd. “Everybody says because we tried in ‘08 and it didn’t happen, it’s not possible. Wrong. We’ve gone through these periods before.” Biden later said change was still possible if youth were the force behind it. “But folks, this is totally within our power. Change.

First it was Vice President Joe Biden who said paying higher taxes was “patriotic.” Now, Treasury Secretary Jack Lew has resurrected the taxes-as-patriotism meme for the Obama White House. Secretary Lew used the phrase “economic patriotism” this morning on his interview on CNBC to discuss the Administration’s new plans to regulate the corporate marketplace. “Congress should enact legislation immediately,” Lew told a business conference in New York hosted by cable television channel CNBC. “We should have some economic patriotism here.” Lew’s remarks came amid a wave of corporate deals known as inversions, in which a U.S. company shifts its tax home base to

SAN FRANCISCO -- A federal judge declared California´s death penalty unconstitutional Wednesday, saying delays of 25 years or more in deciding appeals and carrying out occasional executions have created an arbitrary and irrational system that serves no legitimate purpose. For most of the 748 current Death Row inmates, "systemic delay has made their execution so unlikely that the death sentence carefully and deliberately imposed by the jury has been quietly transformed into one no rational jury or legislature could ever impose: life in prison, with the remote possibility of death," said U.S. District Judge Cormac Carney of Santa Ana.

Pope Francis continues to be trailblazer
by looking to nix celibacy requirement,
allow priests to marry
New York Daily News, by Denis Hamill    Original Article
Posted By: earlybird- 7/16/2014 1:47:05 PM     Post Reply
It looks like Pope Francis is rethinking the idea of celibacy for clergy, and it’s about time. In a recent interview with the founder of the Italian newspaper La Repubblica, Pope Francis was asked about the church’s sex scandals and the requirement that priests be celibate. (Snip) The Vatican then sounded a cautionary note, saying La Repubblica’s article — which also claimed the pontiff said about 2% of Catholic priests are pedophiles — might not quote Pope Francis’ exact words, but reflected the “sense and spirit” of his feelings. Still, translations of the article said the Pope recalled that celibacy was adopted 900 years

UK police have arrested 660 alleged pedophiles following a six-month investigation. The suspects include doctors, teachers, scout leaders, care workers and former police officers. The UK’s National Crime Agency said Wednesday that the operation occurred across the UK and involved 45 separate police forces. The agency estimated that over 400 children have been protected as a result. The operation, which was kept secret until the arrests were made, involved targeting those accessing pedophilic images online. A total of 39 of those arrested were registered sex offenders though the vast majority was unknown to the police. Those who have been charged

As cease-fire with Hamas fails to

JERUSALEM — Plans for a truce devolved into threats of a wider war Tuesday as the first significant attempt to end more than a week’s worth of round-the-clock fire between Israel and Hamas ended before it had even begun. The unravelling of an Egyptian cease-fire proposal offered little immediate hope for a diplomatic solution to a conflict that has left more than 190 Palestinians in Gaza dead and that on Tuesday claimed its first Israeli fatality. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gave the military authorization to use “full force” against militants in Gaza and vowed that Hamas and its allies

The primitive folk assessed by many archaeologists as being the original native Americans - that is, the Clovis people - killed and ate the lovable prehistoric elephants that once inhabited the continent alongside them, scientists have found.The proto-dumbo species in question is known as the gomphothere. Until recently, it had been thought that gomphotheres had disappeared from North America well before human beings showed up, but new fossil evidence appears to show that at least one cuddly tusker was brutally killed by Clovis people around 13,400 years ago. The luckless pachyderm was then scoffed by its peckish assailants. "This is the

After that, his tweets stopped. A call to the airport has not been returned and a Border Patrol spokesman reached Tuesday morning said he was unaware of the situation, but was seeking more information.

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

Contrary to what those who defend the right to own high-powered assault rifles believe, not all guns are created equal. Due to a combination of availability, portability and criminal usage the following five types of guns are the country's most dangerous.

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

The headline in the Washington Post on June 4 was clear: Rove-backed American Crossroads won’t get involved in Cochran runoff Said the Post story the day after Tea Party favorite Chris McDaniel had defeated six-term Mississippi GOP Senator Thad Cochran in the first round of the state’s GOP primary: American Crossroads, a GOP establishment organization, has decided to shift its political focus almost entirely to the general election and will not be spending money in the likely runoff election to decide the Mississippi Senate nomination that was virtually deadlocked after Tuesday night.

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
