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.

And he´ll stamp his feet, purse his purple lips, and whine to the nearest lapdog media until he gets his way. He won. S/.

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.

None of them have the slightest clue as to what this economy is REALLY like out here. They ALL live in their own little, well paid, protected world where the things they do to us have no effect on them and, evidently, they don´t even know it.

FBI moves to fire 11 whistleblowers,
key senator fears retaliation
Washington Times, by Phillip Swarts    Original Article
Posted By: Dreadnought- 10/1/2014 10:56:54 PM     Post Reply
Eleven whistleblowers in the FBI say the bureau is targeting them for termination in retaliation for their revelations about FBI wrongdoing, the top Republican on the Senate Committee on the Judiciary announced Wednesday. The whistleblowers, who have spoken out about various problems and wrongdoing at the law enforcement agency, said they recently have been served with Loss of Effectiveness orders, warning that their performance is suffering and that they could soon be fired. “These whistleblowers never have the opportunity to make their case,” said Sen. Chuck Grassley, Iowa Republican. “It’s stereotypical treatment of whistleblowers for the executive branch.”

U.S. has only jet to transport

As the Ebola virus spread quickly across parts of Africa in March, U.S. officials confronted a logistical nightmare: a complete lack of infrastructure in affected regions, no evacuation plans and air charter services that were unable or unwilling to fly into the region to transport seriously ill patients. And it turns out there’s only one jet in the world — operated by a small private plane charter company in Georgia — with a special transport tube that allows medical personnel to treat Ebola patients while in flight. The Atlanta-based Centers for Disease and Prevention helped develop the “air transport bio-containment

Despite national guidelines for evaluating potential Ebola cases and worldwide awareness of an epidemic that has killed thousands in West Africa, a man who later tested positive for the disease was released from a Dallas hospital even though he said he had traveled to Texas from Liberia. The man returned two days later and was placed in isolation before he became the first person ever diagnosed with Ebola in the United States. But as a result of this lapse, Thomas Duncan was able to leave the hospital and interact with more people while experiencing symptoms, which is when the virus

The confirmation Tuesday of the first Ebola case on U.S. soil emerges against a backdrop of increasing concern in America’s medical community that preparedness for a pandemic has stagnated or slipped in recent years because of tough economic times and increasing malaise since the 2001 anthrax threat. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, America’s premier disease fighter, offered the air of confidence in declaring that the first Ebola patient in Dallas was carefully contained. But earlier this year, it sounded less optimistic about the U.S. health system’s ability to fight a pandemic should a major disease outbreak occur.

As expected, Microsoft launched a new version of Windows on Tuesday two years after the troubled release of its last operating system, Windows 8. But instead of introducing the expected name, "Windows 9," Microsoft announced it will jump to "Windows 10." Yes, Microsoft can still count. The reason for the bizarre jump, company executives said, is that there were just so many changes to the system. The name “represents the first step of a whole new generation of Windows,” Terry Myerson, the Microsoft executive vice president in charge of the Windows division, said in a company blog post.

A man who flew from Liberia to Dallas this month received a diagnosis of Ebola on Tuesday, becoming the first person to board a passenger jet and unknowingly bring the disease here from West Africa, where it has killed thousands of people in recent months. Experts had said that such an event was increasingly likely the longer the epidemic rages in West Africa. But health officials were quick Tuesday to tamp down any hysteria, emphasizing the ways in which the U.S. medical system is well equipped to halt the spread of the disease. “We’re stopping it in its tracks in

In battle to stop encroaching Chinese

BEIJING — Swelling crowds of pro-democracy demonstrators in Hong Kong on Monday plunged Asia’s normally staid financial hub into a tense standoff with Beijing that strikes directly at China’s expanding political grip in the former British colony. The rapidly escalating protests are aimed at forcing Beijing’s Communist leaders to abandon newly declared powers to weed out any candidates in upcoming Hong Kong elections. Yet many on the streets proclaimed they are fighting for something even bigger: preserving a vision of Hong Kong promised 17 years ago when it reverted to Chinese rule. At the time, Chinese leaders promised a state

U.S. intel disputes Obama

U.S. policy leaders, including President Obama, were repeatedly warned for more than a year by the U.S. intelligence community that the Islamic State terror group was gaining significant strength in Syria and was on the verge of seizing territory deep inside Iraq, where the military was struggling to respond. The private assessments, which were confirmed to The Washington Times on Monday, conflict with Mr. Obama’s claim on national television over the weekend that America’s spies had underestimated the rise and capabilities of the Islamic State and had overestimated the Iraqi military’s ability and will to fight the group. Despite heavy

The Supreme Court’s conservatives cleared the way Monday for Ohio to restrict early voting in the state, on the eve of the day it was to start. The court granted the state’s request to stay decisions of lower courts that threw out the state’s new plan, passed by the Republican-led legislature. But the court’s four liberal justices said they would have stayed out of the case and left those decisions in place. Ohio argued that the new plan--reducing from 35 to 28 the number of days voters could cast an early ballot--could not be seen as violating the rights of

More than seven in 10 Americans say the United States will end up using its own combat troops against ISIS militants in Iraq and Syria, despite President Barack Obama’s assertion that U.S. combat troops won’t be on the ground there. This finding comes from a new NBC News/Wall Street Journal/Annenberg poll, which also shows that Americans are divided over the merits of using U.S. combat troops – 45 percent are in favor of using them if military commanders think they’re the best way to defeat the ISIS army, while 37 percent are opposed. President Obama has repeatedly stressed that America

The gunman parked his black Honda directly south of the White House, in the dark of a November night, in a closed lane of Constitution Avenue. He pointed his semiautomatic rifle out of the passenger window, aimed directly at the home of the president of the United States, and pulled the trigger. A bullet smashed a window on the second floor, just steps from the first family’s formal living room. Another lodged in a window frame, and more pinged off the roof, sending bits of wood and concrete to the ground. At least seven bullets struck the upstairs residence of

The GAI report also included a breakdown of Obama’s PDB attendance record between terms; he attended 42.4% of his PDBs in his first term and 41.3% in his second.

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The sympathetic news media is avoiding mentioning his name, instead they are blaming the lack of a football intro for the massive collapse in ratings Sunday night for President Barack Obama’s appearance on CBS’ 60 Minutes. Americans turned away from watching Obama even though he was being interviewed about the nation’s new war on ISIS. For example, Deadline Hollywood didn’t even mention Obama’s 60 Minutes interview when reporting on the drop in viewers. “With no football lead-in, CBS’ Sunday lineup fell from last week. As expected, the drop was steepest at 7 PM, with 60 Minutes (1.1) off by 69%

Well, that didn’t take long. Just two weeks into the new season of “The View,” co-hosts Rosie O’Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg tore into each other during a commercial break — in front of their stunned studio audience. The spat erupted Thursday after Goldberg interrupted O’Donnell to go to a commercial break before the mother of five was finished commenting in a “Hot Topic” discussion about spanking children on the ABC gabfest. O’Donnell refuses to wear an earpiece to stay in contact with producers while the live show is airing, so she had no clue it was time to stop talking.

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

Sacramento, Calif. - Gov. Jerry Brown on Tuesday signed legislation imposing the nation's first statewide ban on single-use plastic bags, driven to action by a buildup of litter and damage to aquatic ecosystems. A national coalition of plastic bag manufacturers immediately said it would seek a voter referendum to repeal the law, which is scheduled to take effect in July 2015. Under SB270, plastic bags will be phased out of large grocery stores starting next summer and convenience stores and pharmacies in 2016. The law allows grocers to charge a fee of at least 10 cents for using paper bags. State Sen. Alex Padilla, D-Los Angeles,

Alton Nolen´s mother and sister posted a video on Facebook where they apologized to the families of victims in Nolen´s alleged attack last Thursday in Moore, Oklahoma. The two women insisted that Nolen was acting outside of his character because he believed in God and was not a violent person. Nolen, whose Facebook page indicates that he recently converted to Islam, is accused of attacking co-workers Colleen Hufford and Traci Johnson after he was reportedly fired for "personnel issues" from a Vaughan Foods factory. He reportedly beheaded Hufford, 54, and stabbed Johnson, 43, multiple times before being shot by reserve police officer
