Obama channels Saul Alinsky
with ´so sue me´ speech:

Washington Examiner, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/4/2014 5:18:41 AM

President Obama has, except on fleeting occasions, routinely disdained the customary Oval Office language of compromise and coalition-building for the low arts of sophistry and belittlement. That was to be expected, given his background as a Chicago community organizer and product of that city´s corrupt Democrat political machine. But Obama has far exceeded dismal expectations. No previous American president employed the systematic distortion of fact and mendacious characterization of opponents that have typified Obama´s presidency. His "so sue me" speech last week is a classic illustration of the community organizer practicing Saul Alinsky´s 13th rule: “Pick the target, freeze it, personalize

FTA: And look, I just want to be clear — Republicans in Congress, they’re patriots, they love their country, they love their families. And I...like most democrats...am just the opposite!

Step back and look at the big picture.

Remember 0ccupy Wall St.?...the crime, the arson, the rapes, the infantile envy of deluded brats wanting something for nothing, the millions of dollars of property damage from coast to coast?

Now look at the assault and invasion of our borders by another hoard of humanity wanting the fruits if OUR labor without earning it.......all under the guise of "fairness" and "social justice".

In each case our "Leader" appears to be above it all, but gives each mob his tacit approval.

What do these two events have in common.....?
0bama and Alinsky.

Make no mistake, The current POTUS is the enemy if ?America.

Heard Dinesh D´Souza being interviewed yesterday on a Boston radio station. found out that, in his movie, "America", we learn a lot more about Saul Alinsky, the man who dedicated his "Rules for Radicals" to Lucifer!

"America" is a Must See. Opened this week in a theater near you - especially since today is Fourth of July! More people who see the movie, the more movie theaters will want to show it.

With 33 percent of Americans surveyed by the Quinnipiac University Poll saying he is the worst president since WWII, one might think Obama would try a new approach. He won´t because Alinsky´s eighth rule says “keep the pressure on. Never let up.”

Republicans can play the same pressure game. Do they have the guts, the fire? That is the question and it´s a big one. If Republicans don´t have enough passion to hammer the Democrats incessantly over their destructive policies, then we deserve what we will surely get unless they do.

OPEN LETTER TO REPUBLICANS IN CONGRESS: You´re looking lazy and pale against an enemy with boundless energy and passion. You cannot win for America -- for all of us -- unless you get off your golf courses and comfy arses and get passionate. America is facing an existential crisis and YOU must rise to the occasion. Democrats know how to fight dirty. Learn or die.

D´Souza´s "America" is excellent and much better than his first, which I thought was way too kind to preezy. Judging from the audience, the movie is preaching to the choir, but even the choir can benefit from learning some new things.

So just what exactly is it he wants to do to help families? Print more money, inhibit more US energy production, spend more on top of the $17 trillion?
He generalizes with the families can´t wait-spin. in his claim of being blocked but it is actually bad things he plans for the country as a whole that are blocked, even by Democrats, as they should be. He is obviously on a tirade against America, over the immigration impasse, with the arranged bussing in of sick children.

The sooner everyone sees that Obama hates this country, the better off we will be. Unfortunately, there is a large swathe of his supporters who feel the same way he does. They are the rich and entitled who have never worked a day in their lives to achieve anything. It has been given to them. The rest of us hard working folk understand preserving the opportunity afforded in this country to better yourself. Obama is bent on destroying the very people who make the country work. Liberalism truly is a mental disorder carried out by control freaks.

It is critically important - imperative - that we hear Obama´s words and the intent with which he says them.

He does not think like we do. He speaks in ways he believes we understand, but his words are packed with other meanings. When he says he wants to help middle class families, he is not saying he cares about those of us currently in the Marx-coined middle class. No ... he wants to break the middle class down to poverty levels and raise up those currently in poverty TO a new middle class of takers.

I believed that when he was re-selected (by fraud, I am convinced) that he would accelerate his agenda, with only four years to go to get it all completely broken down, so he and his generational pro-regressives could march in with pretty words to ´´fix´´ everything. It´s what Democrats always do ... break things intentionally, blame the other guys, and then claim that only they can make it better. And now thousands, maybe millions, of new voters forcing their third-world ways on us to get them there.

But it won´t work. These progressive-marxists are no different from any others in the past. They THINK they´re smarter, or they have better ways of implementing their plans, but it won´t work. The human spirit, ESPECIALLY those of us who consider ourselves TRUE AMERICANS, those of us who understand every meaning of BEING AN AMERICAN, are fearfully strong and resilient. They are determined, and have been patient to get this far. But so are we, and we actually ARE smarter. We already know we don´t want to lose the good thing that millions in the past have fought, bled, and died for to give us.

You won´t win, Comrade Obama. You will not win this.

So, when 0bama said, "so sue me" did that give standing to every citizen to actually take him to court??

It´s my understanding, one has to prove "standing" to bring a lawsuit against a government entity, but if his "so sue me" opens the floodgates, there could be millions of people claiming damage from 0bama´s actions, especially his Executive Orders.

Obama enemy of America. Sure. But please characterize that portion of the American population which elected him TWICE. By the time of the second Obama election, there was little doubt that everything Obama´s critics had elucidated about the Marxist KING was true. But that didn´t stop many from voting him in again ... those racists, unionists, LGBT dysfunctionals, socialists, greedy moochers, enviro-nutcakes ... because THEY, in their own ways, are enemies of America as well, INSISTING that America change to suit THEM. Obama and his sycophant-voters: birds of a collectivist feather, using the Constitution as their cage poop catcher.

As if the situation in Ferguson, Missouri wasn’t bad enough, Code Pink has decided to join the riots and protests. Code Pink infamously dressed as vaginas and paraded around the RNC in 2012. They also protested the maker of my favorite body wash, Ahava, (made in Israel), because it contains “occupied mud.” More ominously, Medea Benjamin, the leader of Code Pink, just attended a gathering of anti-Israel groups, including notorious anti-Semites, in Tehran, as reported by Buzzfeed: A number of American and European antiwar activists and conspiracy theorists have gathered in Tehran for a conference aimed at addressing supposed Zionist control of the

PRINCETON, NJ -- Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year´s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama. That 12-percentage-point margin is similar to what Gallup measured for Obama in 2010 and George W. Bush in 2006, years in which their parties performed poorly in the midterm elections.(Snip for graph) Gallup first asked this question in 1998, the year Republicans were moving toward impeaching President Bill Clinton for lying about his affair with a White House intern. That year, when Clinton´s approval rating was 63%,

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer.

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk.

Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered.

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
