Why Isn´t Obama Going to the Border?
National Journal, by James Oliphant & George E. Condon Jr.

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/7/2014 4:45:57 PM

President Obama evidently has decided not to put a human face on the crisis unfolding at the U.S. southern border—not even his own. The White House said over and over again Monday that Obama will not travel to the border with Mexico despite flying to Texas this week to raise money for Democratic candidates there. It´s certainly in part a political decision, one meant to avoid taking ownership of a difficult issue on which the White House would prefer to share blame. (Snip) In other words, if Obama goes goes to the border, he owns the problem. If he doesn't, he's blasted for a lack of leadership.

Comments:
The simple answer to the headline is, as an illegal alien himself, the border patrol might not let him back in.

His Secret Service detail can´t protect him from contagious, communicable diseases like tuberculosis and God knows what else these illegal aliens are bringing over the border. Ft. Belvoir´s golf course is more to Zero´s liking. He also likes that the Border Patrol has seen its traditional duties usurped in favor of babysitting. This fellow ought to be pitched headlong from the Oval Office.

Does the man seriously believe that if he doesn´t show up on the border, no one will believe him responsible for the chaos? In Klein´s book, he quotes Jarrett as saying Obama has trouble staying focused, that he would rather surprise people with his dazzling intellect.

What? Clinton loved to be the smartest person in the room, too, but at least we could depend that Clinton understood the issues.

"Why Isn´t Obama Going to the Border?"

Simple...by orchestrating this kidnapping of Mexican children from the WH, Obie avoids the appearance of owning the issue. He wants to let the issue fester for a while and together with the msm´s help, apply pressure to the pubbies in hopes that Boehner and McConnell et al will cave and support amnesty.

Meanwhile, us commoners have to pick up the slack and confront the buses and federal agents. Will be amazed if no one is killed by the gummint during this crackdown against the people.

Obama does not associate with those kinds of people. If you are not able to donate huge sums of money to him, he has no use for you. Surely, you don´t expect Obama to mingle with the great unwashed. Anytime he has to interact with the regular folk he is so uncomfortable it is painful to watch. Standing before the influential and monied crowd is more his speed. He likes to harangue the opposition from a position of opulence and privilege. He uses children, he does not need to associate with them.

At this late date, anyone who continues to refer to President Frank Marshall Davis, Jr. (no relation to Sammy!) as an illegal alien must truly be blind, as Honolulu-born Liar is a dead-ringer for the guy his own "autobiography" refers to as "Pops."

Besides, for 17 years, Liar himself stated in his publicity package that he was Kenyan-born (in order to scam the system). Is this not enough to convince us that Liar was NOT Kenyan-born?

Sheesh!

TOP FIVE REASONS
5) No good golf courses there.
4) If he hit a ball and accidentally chased it into Mexico, Biden would make no effort to arrange for his return either.
3) Perry might ask him to complete the fence.
2) He might have to hold a baby that needed a diaper change.
1) It´s too dangerous due to his order that the Feds cannot return gunfire.

He´s not going for a couple of reasons:
1. He´s still a smoker and that makes you more prone to catch airbourne illnesses like TB.
2. Even though it´s his mess he thinks that he´s too good to see what he´s wrought.
3. No golf courses or Subways to be noticed at by the LOFOs
4. Too many fundraisers to attend in Texas.
5. Governor Perry has already made him look like the idiot that he is why add more fuel to the fire. Oh to be a fly on that meeting wall.

Like all of his other "devious" plans, this one also blew up in barry´s face. We were supposed to act stupid and not question why thousands of Central American children suddenly appeared at the Texas border. They obviously all developed a thirst for freedom at the same time. We were supposed to open up our hearts, arms and wallets and welcome the poor things in. Little do they know that becoming a U.S. citizen will give them less freedom in the new obama world. Now he can´t face the dilemma that he caused, ChickenShiite PINO.

Last week Obe demanded congress give him 2 billion to handle the mess --Today he upped it to 3 billion.
He won´t go to the border because he is afraid.
With the lack of the real border guards working their real jobs his security couldn´t tell friend from cartel assassins. with probable left over Fast and Furious donated heavy fire power they could line up just over the border and he would have nowhere to hide --not even behind a bullet proof glass shelter.
Worse yet some of those older illegal Immigrants( what a moron label that is) could be part of those cartels. Their youngest hit man was after all 14 years old.
Obe should just run back to the WH and stay there.

John Kerry’s big blunder in
seeking an Israel-Gaza cease-fire
Washington Post Writers Group, by David Ignatius    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 7/28/2014 4:50:14 PM     Post Reply
Secretary of State John Kerry has made a significant mistake in how he’s pursuing a Gaza cease-fire — and it’s not surprising that he has upset both the Israelis and some moderate Palestinians. Kerry’s error has been to put so much emphasis on achieving a quick halt to the bloodshed that he has solidified the role of Hamas, the intractable, unpopular Islamist group that leads Gaza, along with the two hard-line Islamist nations that are its key supporters, Qatar and Turkey. In the process, he has undercut not simply the Israelis but also the Egyptians and the Fatah movement that runs the Palestinian Authority, all of which want to see an end to

Illegal immigrant demonstrators were protesting outside the White House on Monday – but don’t expect America’s immigration officers to intervene. An Immigration and Customs Enforcement official indicated that even if the protesters end up getting arrested by D.C. police, they’d have to be serious criminals for ICE to get involved. “Unless the individuals meet ICE’s enforcement priorities, it’s unlikely that the agency would get involved in the case,” the official told FoxNews.com. Under a policy that’s been in effect for several years, ICE focuses deportation mostly on serious criminals and – in some cases -- those caught in the

A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Richmond, Virginia, ruled 2-1 to affirm a February ruling by a federal judge who struck down the state ban as unconstitutional. "Denying same-sex couples this choice prohibits them from participating fully in our society, which is precisely the type of segregation that the (U.S. Constitution´s) Fourteenth Amendment cannot countenance," the decision said.

U.S. spying programs are making government sources too skittish to divulge sensitive information to reporters, especially on computer-based technology, making it difficult for journalists to hold powerful entities to account, according to a 120-page report released Monday.

Capitalizing on an anticipated boom in the unmanned-aircraft industry, several US universities and colleges are launching training programs for future drone pilots.

So the schools are teaching tomorrow’s drone pilots with simulators, textbooks and more novel workarounds. (Snip) “We don’t have to do much recruiting. They come to us,” said Dan Macchiarella, Embry-Riddle’s chairman of aeronautical science.

The holiday is a Muslim one called "Eid-al-Fitr" and the statement says: his last month has been a time of fasting, reflection, spiritual renewal, and service to the less fortunate. While Eid marks the completion of Ramadan, it also celebrates the common values that unite us in our humanity and reinforces the obligations that people of all faiths have to each other, especially those impacted by poverty, conflict, and disease.

You can understand President Obama´s current political problems -- and how those problems could make things very tough for his party in this fall´s midterm election -- in a single word. And that word is "competence". Obama was elected in 2008 on a stated promise that he would restore competence to government. He pitched himself as the antidote to "Heck of a job, Brownie" and the Bush years, the person who would always put the most qualified candidate in every job in his Administration. That the basic functioning of government would never be in question. Almost six years on from
