Obama’s annoyance with
Congress boils over

Washington Post, by Dan Balz

Original Article

Posted By:Dreadnought, 7/2/2014 10:35:29 PM

President Obama’s displeasure with gridlock in Washington — and with the Republicans he blames for it — has been rising for months. This week it has boiled over. From the Rose Garden to the Cabinet Room to near the Key Bridge in Georgetown, the president has signaled more than mere annoyance at the state of affairs at the halfway point of this year. His disdain for congressional Republicans has steadily increased; his disrespect for their tactics has hardened into contempt. With immigration reform dead for this year, if not for the remainder of Obama’s presidency; with House Speaker John A.

Mr. Soetoro will do anything to divert the nation´s attention from Megyn Kelly´s BLOCKBUSTER interview on FOX with Bill Ayers. Ayers wrote Soetoro´s memoir about "Race and Inheritence," and started Mr Soetoro´s adventure in the White House in his own living room. Bill Ayers is the domestic terrorist Mr Soetoro strives to be.

There is no "gridlock." Obama wants to put through more leftist programs the American people don´t want, and the Republicans oppose them. Obama won´t budge, insisting it´s his way or the highway. He refuses to enforce laws he doesn´t like, and the Republicans have figured out they can´t trust a thing he says. His word has NO value. Actually, LESS than no value. Since EVERYONE now knows it has no value, anyone who believes anything he says would be viewed as a fool. So that´s that. No gridlock. Just stubborn insistence on getting his own way all the time, right now, on everything, and blaming everyone else when anyone says "no." Everyone has his number.

Obama thinks he is king and everyone should do what he wants. As a supposed constitutional "scholar" (ha ha) he has no concept of government in this country. Combine that with the fact that he hasn´t an ounce of leadership capability and you see where we are in this country. It is idiots like this twit at the WP that give this affirmative action president a pass and blame everyone else for problems than the person where the blame belongs.

Complete joke. As others have said there´s anything but gridlock--massive changes occur at lightning speed. Obama controls both the Senate and the House and everyone knows it. The GOP has been dying for open borders for decades-it´s no secret. Obama has just erased our southern border and no elected officials have complained other than occasional photo ops or sound bites. They don´t care because they don´t have to. They can do anything to us and we can´t stop them. If you have no border you don´t have a country. All government agencies should be closed down and the military dismantled. We have no country. This has been happening gradually but now it´s full force. The law protecting Central Americans from deportations was passed by George Bush on Jan. 1, 2008. The Wall St. Journal has advocated a 5 word Constitutional amendment continuously since the 1980s: There shall be open borders. We´re supposed to think the GOP is looking out for us which of course they´re not. Obama´s re-election saved Boehner´s life and everyone knows it.

Hearing the whiner-in-chief complain that Congress has not acted and that we don´t have a "plan." boils my blood. We have a plan, and it´s clearly articulated in his job description and the laws of the land, our land. Obama and others before him with the same job decided not to perform their legal obligation. That doesn´t make it Congresses problem to solve.

Now we need a whole new approach? Just do your job and protect the border, there now you have a plan. My work here is done.

Ok a bit more detail, use the National Guard, team up with State and Local entities including citizen militias. Build the fence, shoot rubber bullets, tear gas turn them back. Pick up the phone call Ricky Nieto (El´Presedente) let him know all aid has been stopped until we get our soldier back and full cooperation in our efforts to guard the border. Then with the time remaining on your phone plan keep calling South to inform the invading countries that their aid has been stopped. Time to stand on our hind legs and show some teeth.

It is amazing that the Washington Post, and its very own Dan Balz, believe a president is entitled to get everything he wants even when elected members of Congress do not agree with him. Perhaps a totalitarian dictator is what Obama and the WaPo want, but so far the nation does not want a totalitarian dictator. Were it not for the Republican Congress, our nation would be in much worse trouble than Obama and the Democrat Senate have gotten us into.

Don´t be fooled. Obama may whine but he loves gridlock. What he can´t abide is being expected to act Presidential and attempt to bring the two sides together on any issue. He does not want compromise. He wants absolute obedience and that is why you see the shameful juvenile temper tantrums. Nothing less than complete agreement is enough for the boy king. He would be better suited to sit on a throne or at the head of a fascist government. He truly believes he is brilliant and should never be questioned. He is a poor man´s Lucifer who in his pride desired to be exalted higher than God. Both are pathological narcissists and will get their comeuppance.

Does he really believe this?

“Republicans in Congress, they’re patriots, they love their country, they love their families,” he said from the Key Bridge. “They just have a flawed theory of the economy that they can’t seem to get past. .?.?. That’s their worldview. I’m sure they sincerely believe it. It’s just not accurate. It does not work.”

It worked just fine until Obama got elected. Has he noticed that? Or are his myriad failures so devastating to his narcissistic psyche that he is lashing out blaming the Republicans? I believe he knows he´s a dud but must, to save his image, resort to desperate wrong-headed rhetoric.

It is not a pretty thing to watch an ant under a magnifying glass in the hot sun.

The Crybaby-in-Chief is whining because congress is balking at breaking laws that have been in effect, by consent of the people, for over 200 years. Obama is the kind of brat that you would like to run into in a dark alley after school, when his bigger pals aren´t around to fight for him.

U.S. rules out coordinating

The Obama administration has ruled out the possibility of coordinating any U.S. airstrikes in Syria with President Bashar al-Assad’s government, forcing U.S. officials to either design a campaign that would evade Syrian air defenses or coordinate it with Assad through a third party. Despite the shared U.S. and Syrian interest in defeating Islamist militants in the region, there will be no cooperation with Assad, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki said Tuesday. “We’re not going to ask for permission from the Syrian regime,” she said. With top U.S. officials describing the Islamic State militant group as a growing threat to international

Unchecked Emissions’ Risks

Runaway growth in the emission of greenhouse gases is swamping all political efforts to deal with the problem, raising the risk of “severe, pervasive and irreversible impacts” over the coming decades, according to a draft of a major new United Nations report. Global warming is already cutting grain production by several percentage points, the report found, and that could grow much worse if emissions continue unchecked. Higher seas, devastating heat waves, torrential rain and other climate extremes are also being felt around the world as a result of human-produced emissions, the draft report said, and those problems are likely to

THE COUNTRY is about to see its fiercest climate-change battle. After years of congressional inaction, President Obama’s Environmental Protection Agency is applying new rules to curb greenhouse-gas emissions from cars, trucks and — most controversially — power plants, the biggest national emitters. Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) has said he will try to restrict the EPA if Republicans take over the Senate. Mr. Obama’s executive actions will be an issue in the 2016 presidential campaign. The EPA has drawn up the best possible policy framework under current law, and it is much better than nothing.

That doesn’t mean that the hostilities have concluded. Not by long shot [see update]. The IDF tweeted on Sunday that terrorists in Gaza had fired more than 135 rockets over a 24-hour span, with the bombardment continuing into today — killing at least one Israeli civilian, and wounding “several others.” Five civilians in Israel have now been murdered by Hamas in this war, which is now 50 days old, including

Having once served a president, I don’t begrudge any president a vacation. There is, in fact, no escape from this relentless job. A change of scenery does not involve a change in responsibilities, or even a release from the essence of the president’s routine. The intelligence briefings stalk him. Presidential respites are measured in hours, not days or weeks — say, a few hours on a golf course. And the public would be selfish and shortsighted to demand those downtime hours, which are necessary for humans to function. The problem for President Obama has come in managing the symbolic aspect

Early Sunday morning it was found that Time magazine had included in one of its video reports the lie that Israeli soldiers were selling the organs of dead Palestinians on the black market. To its credit, by that afternoon the magazine had apologized and edited out the classic blood libel claim.

President Obama has authorized the use of drones for surveillance in Syria even as the Assad regime demanded that the U.S. seek permission before launching any airstrikes on its territory against Islamic State targets. A senior U.S. official confirmed to Fox News that Obama this weekend authorized the use of drone surveillance over Syria for the first time. The action is considered the first “intrusive” surveillance by the U.S. in Syria since the country’s civil war began. This differs from protective surveillance, such as the U.S. used in the failed mission to rescue American hostages held in Syria. The authorization was

It is remarkable that calls for bipartisanship in Washington generally come from Democrats and Democrat-leaning pundits. The implication always is that Republicans–the “extreme” ones, anyway–are the barrier to cooperation across party lines. But recall 2012–not exactly ancient history–when Harry Reid repeatedly claimed that Mitt Romney had gone for a decade without paying any taxes. And was, therefore, presumably a felon, since no one says that Romney has gone without income. This was not just a lie, but an insane lie. The idea that a person can earn millions of dollars and just choose not to pay taxes on his income–as

Makers of surveillance systems are offering governments across the world the ability to track the movements of almost anybody who carries a cellphone, whether they are blocks away or on another continent. The technology works by exploiting an essential fact of all cellular networks: They must keep detailed, up-to-the-minute records on the locations of their customers to deliver calls and other services to them. Surveillance systems are secretly collecting these records to map people’s travels over days, weeks or longer, according to company marketing documents and experts in surveillance technology.

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

On NBC’s Meet the Press, guest Gwen Ifill of PBS called the unrest and violence that erupted in Ferguson, Mo., the beginning of a “new civil-rights movement.” “There’s a new civil-rights movement which has sprung up,” Ifill said. “These young people in the streets, these young people who created a social-media movement around Michael Brown, they’re not saying pass a law, they’re saying enforce the current ones.” But some people have called for new laws, and later in the program, Reverend Al Sharpton said, “Our demonstrations must lead to legislation.” Sharpton went on to say that, “We must turn this moment into

Our AJC colleague Nicholas Fouriezos passes along the following dispatch: The racial unrest caused by tensions over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., could be a rallying cry for Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts, according to the voter education committee chair for the Democratic Southern caucus. “There is a story beneath the story in Ferguson,” chairwoman Janet May said at the Southern Caucus meeting during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta on Friday. May ran through the stats of the 21,000-person Missouri town: 13,000 black citizens, about 7,000 white. Five city council members– one of whom was black.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad! No!” the elder Mr. Brown remembered his son protesting. “I’m serious.” And the black teenager from this suburb of St. Louis, who had just graduated from high

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

Harvard Law School professor Charles Ogletree grouped the shooting of Michael Brown, who was fatally shot by a police officer in Ferguson, Mo., earlier this month, with two of the most monumental deaths American civil-rights history on MSNBC. Ogletree, a renowned legal scholar who taught President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama during their time in Cambridge, described the state of affairs following Brown’s funeral as being “just like the assassination of” Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in 1968. “This reminds us of exactly what happened years ago when I was a young kid to the great man Emmett Till,
