Obama´s fall campaign in June
The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 6/27/2014 2:13:16 PM

President Obama offered a scathing indictment of congressional Republicans during an economic speech in Minnesota on Friday, accusing his political opponents of failing to “do anything, except block me and call me names.” The president argued the GOP had “blocked or voted down every serious idea to strengthen the middle class” offered by Democrats this year. He specifically cited efforts to raise the minimum wage, pass legislation guaranteeing fair pay between men and women and implement immigration reform. The remarks felt like an opening to the serious campaign season, given Congress’s departure from Washington for the July 4 recess. Lawmakers have spent relatively

Comments:
So is this what we can expect for the remainder of the year until the election?? Iraq is collapsing, murdering terrorists are multiplying all over the world, thousands of illegals (which could include terrorists) are pouring over the border, etc. and Obama campaigns. I find this shocking indifference stunning by even Obama standards.

Lying, revolting sack. Like he really gives a you-know-what about the middle class. Everything he does is aimed at destroying the middle class. Socialist states can´t really exist with a vibrant, prosperous middle class, so it must be destroyed.

If you want small government, vote for a flat tax with lots of deductions! The power to tax is the power to destroy!

The US House of Reps is doing a thankless Job Obe Hussein BUT somebody has to do it!
It´s a great sign of their efforts that you have been reduced to whines and more lies.
the job would be more successful if the equally whining citizens would back their efforts.

Kerry Discusses Cybersecurity
With Chinese Counterparts
Wall Street Journal, by Ian Talley*    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/10/2014 12:51:56 PM     Post Reply
BEIJING—U.S. officials said they had eased relations with China during two days of talks on issues ranging from cybersecurity to foreign currency, but they forged few major deals, suggesting wide gaps remain between the world´s two biggest economies on issues of global significance. Secretary of State John Kerry said the annual talks, known as the Strategic & Economic Dialogue, showed "the U.S. and China are committed to a new model of relations based on practical cooperation, but also constructive management of differences." That was a theme echoed by Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew and by Chinese officials. The good vibes even

Chinese hackers broke into the computer networks of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management earlier this year with the intention of accessing the files of tens of thousands of federal employees who had applied for top-secret security clearances, according to The New York Times. Senior U.S. officials say the hackers gained access to some of the agency´s databases in March before the threat was detected and blocked, the Times reported in an article posted on its website Wednesday night. How far the hackers penetrated the agency´s systems was not yet clear, the newspaper said. Accusations of hacking by China and

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel indicated the administration isn’t particularly concerned with the uranium seized by ISIS terrorists in Iraq, saying the “old chemicals” aren’t weaponized. Reuters obtained a letter written to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on July 8 from Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim, in which the envoy asks the world body for help to “stave off the threat” of the use of the 88 pounds of uranium compounds from the University of Mosul by terrorists. “Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Alhakim wrote,

Supporters of reserve Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi had hoped that Wednesday’s closed evidentiary hearing would result in the judge sending him back to the United States, but the Mexican ordered that he be returned to prison until an Aug. 4 hearing. Tahmooressi, who served two combat tours in Afghanistan, was arrested at the San Ysidro border crossing the night of March 31 and is currently being held in the El Hongo II prison in Tecate, Mexico, for bringing guns into the country. Tahmooressi reportedly had a rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun, a .45-caliber pistol and more than 400 rounds of ammunition in

Many on the Left didn’t want any exemptions to the contraceptive mandate, even for purely sectarian groups. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, among others, considered that narrow exemption “itself a compromise.” The secularist central planners of Obamacare wanted total participation by all employers. They just couldn’t get away with it politically. So, naturally, they treat any objections from the religious to supposedly generous modifications of the mandate with the greatest impatience. That impatience was on display in Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent from the Supreme Court’s recent granting of a temporary reprieve to Wheaton College as its challenge to mandate-related regulations continues. Sotomayor felt

The Devastation That’s Really

President Obama visited Denver this week, was offered marijuana, and laughed. His administration made possible the open marketing and use of marijuana in Colorado and Washington state by directing that federal law not be enforced. The president is joined by Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul in supporting marijuana legalization. As Clinton recently told CNN, "On recreational marijuana, states are the laboratories of democracy. We (are) experimenting with that right now. I want to wait and see what the evidence is.” There is no indication that Obama is really paying attention to what he has done in Colorado.

22 times President Obama was

President Obama said in a press conference Wednesday that he had not inspected the crisis on the border between the U.S. and Mexico because his presence would be little more than “political theater.” “This isn´t theater. This is a problem,” Obama told reporters in Dallas. “I´m not interested in photo ops. I´m interested in solving a problem." Unsurprisingly, the president’s claim that he’s not interested in photo-ops was met with titters, guffaws and outright mockery — because he is most definitely a fan of photo-ops. No, really. That´s pretty much all he does. And although many social media users have already dredged up

Secretary of State John Kerry hopes he has found a partner to take to the climate-change dance, and her name is China. Kerry is in Beijing for the United States-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, a bilateral series of negotiations that involve top-ranking officials from both countries. The two countries struck deals on eight climate-change projects this week, and China agreed to set more stringent emissions standards for vehicles and greenhouse gases. "This effort has to be mutual," Kerry said Thursday. "It’s not about one country making a demand of the other. It’s the science itself demanding action from all of

After more than a week of protests by local residents in Murrieta against transfers of illegal aliens caught in Texas to a local U.S. Border Patrol facility, the federal government has called off future transfers to the area--for now. Late Wednesday, local Fox affiliate KSWB reported that a fourth planeload of illegal aliens--many of them unaccompanied minors--scheduled for Thursday had been canceled, and no future flights would be scheduled. The announcement will be seen as a victory by anti-illegal immigration activists, who kept a vigil near the U.S. Border Patrol site after successfully blocking the first convoy of buses, which

Since then, Gainesville, Georgia, police have arrested three over a Target parking lot robbery and are looking for another man who punched a woman and stole her Mercedes at a Decatur, Georgia, Target as well.

In an appearance on Fox News Channel’s “Special Report” on Wednesday, Sen. Jeff Flake (R-AZ) discussed the current state of affairs surrounding the issue of immigration. Flake, the guest of the show’s occasionally occurring “Center Seat” segment, admitted the rise of a populist movement opposing any immigration reform movement that included a version of amnesty. However, he admitted to being perplexed as to why there’s such an opposition stating there’s a need for not only low-skill labor “particularly in the agricultural areas and hospitality areas,” but high-skill labor of “those in the STEM fields.” Partial transcript as follows: STEPHEN HAYES, Weekly Standard: You

President Barack Obama coolly taunted congressional Republicans on Wednesday for dithering on his demand for billions to handle a flood of illegal immigration children streaming across the U.S.-Mexico border. At the same time he flatly denied that his own policy decisions have led to the rapidly expanding human tragedy. Calling the deluge a ´humanitarian situation on the border,´ not an emergency or crisis, he parried claims that a 2012 executive order delaying the deportation of hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants – those who had arrived in the U.S. as children before the summer of 2007 – incentivized children in Central

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

Sarah Palin on Tuesday joined a growing chorus of Republicans calling for the impeachment of President Obama, writing in a Breitbart op-ed that the influx of young illegal immigrants over the southern border "is the last straw that makes the battered wife say, ´no mas.´ " Mixed/careless metaphors aside, this is nothing but bad news for Republicans — especially four months until the 2014 election. Palin is hardly the first GOP politician to raise the issue of impeachment over the past couple years. Others include Sens. James Inhofe (R-Okla.), Tom Coburn (R-Okla.) and Tim Scott (R-S.C.), Reps.

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

WASHINGTON — Congressional Democrats said Tuesday that they had developed legislation to override the Supreme Court decision on contraceptives. The bill would ensure that women have access to coverage for birth control even if they work for businesses that have religious objections. The bill, developed in consultation with the Obama administration, would require for-profit corporations like Hobby Lobby Stores to provide and pay for contraceptive coverage, along with other preventive services, under the Affordable Care Act. The measure could be on the Senate floor as early as next week, Senate Democrats said. “Your health care decisions are not your boss’s

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett. While it´s routine for staff to draft such letters for elected officials, matters of such magnitude and to other elected officials of stature are almost always in the name of the principle.

Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States. "We have six minors in Nogales

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.
