Our Roost, Obama’s Chickens
National Review Online, by Victor Davis Hanson

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/8/2014 4:52:55 AM

Often, crazy things seem normal for a time because logical catastrophes do not immediately follow. A deeply suspicious Richard Nixon systematically and without pushback for years undermined and politicized almost every institution of the federal government, from the CIA and the FBI to the IRS and the attorney general’s office. Nixon seemed to get away with it — until his second term. Once the public woke up, however, the eventual accounting proved devastating: resignation of a sitting president, prison sentences for his top aides, collapse of the Republican party, government stasis, a ruined economy, the destruction of the Vietnam peace accords

Think of the fact that Obama destroyed your healthcare then infects us with illegals who WILL INFECT us with various infestations and infections. Think of the fact that Obama is also sending them all over the country as well. Think of it...why would they do this and why this way? You couldn´t ask for a stronger enemy of USA than Obama and his administration. But alas, YOU VOTED for it. Enjoy.

A very long article, but please, a must read! Hanson really ties together the case beautifully.

"Obama’s economic legacy is rarely appreciated. He has institutionalized the idea that unemployment between 6 and 7 percent is normal, that annual deficits over $500 billion reflect frugality, that soaring power, food, and fuel costs are not proof of inflation, that zero interest rates are the reward for thrift, that higher taxes are always a beginning, never an end, and that there is no contradiction when elite progressives — the Obamas, the Clintons, the Warrens — trash the 1-percenters, while doing everything in their power to live just like them."


Another superb article by VDH. Well worth reading and forwarding,

I agree #2. It is a very informative article but tells us nothing that we here did not already know. Clearly, Mr. Hanson is an extremely intelligent man who understands exactly what Obama has wrought and the consequences of his actions. My question is, what do we do about it? It seems that most of the Republicans in Congress should be forced to read this article because they certainly have shown little urgency as Obama drives the country over the cliff.

Obama is a real and present danger to this constitutional republic and it appears our side offers no solution to this serious threat. When will our side take the fight to the media? The people in Murrietta, California should be their inspiration. It is time to go on the offense. Cowering in a corner just enables Obama to continue to bully people into silence. The Republicans should ditch their political consultants and do what is right for this country. They need to speak the truth, quit worrying about political fallout and tell the media enough is enough. Obama will not change course willingly. He will have to be forced to. Changing the tide of public opinion can make that happen. Republicans need to wake up, go on the offense, and lead the way.

Waiting for Obie´s chickens to come home to roast is in line with waiting for a late night knock on the door. "You will have to come with us...no need to pack a bag."

I want to shout somebody do something...this can´t be happening ! But most people seem in a daze...in a way it is like nothing is happening. If you don´t discuss it, it will be ok.

We must pray for God to intervene and send us real leaders. We must stand up against the tyrants. The people on the border have the right spirit...standing up against the government goons. If God is far us, who can be against us ?

Must remember this.

Mr. Hanson, lots of people have been aware from the beginning what was going to happen, and they know what nefarious things have been wrought upon them. Do not judge the people by the news oppressing Democrat media. That media does not reflect what people know.

A mostly chronological rehash of the offenses against the people of the US and of the world who had grown to trust, at least a little bit, the president.
One point of contention though is he kept saying few noticed. Well, not enough noticed, but a lot of us did notice, but not enough listened because they were charmed.

During that time there were a few more honest politicians than the 2 or 3 in the Senate and about a dozen or so in the House.

The View’s Bloody Backstage Politics:
How Barbara Walters and Bill Geddie
Lost Control of Their Show

Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 3:29:19 PM     Post Reply
The search is on for two presenters to join Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie O’Donnell on ABC’s daytime chat show, while a backstage battle for control has left Barbara Walters out of the driver’s seat. When ABC’s long-popular daytime program The View returns in September for its 18th season, creator Barbara Walters will no longer have an ownership stake, and longtime executive producer Bill Geddie won’t be at the helm. “He won’t be back,” a person familiar with the inner workings of the show told The Daily Beast, confirming one of the major changes--including the enforced departures of panelists Sherri Shepherd

Federal employees, like all Americans, are entitled to hold passionate political beliefs. Most executive branch federal employees, however, may not engage in certain political activities, thanks to an anti-conflict of interest principle enshrined in a federal law called the Hatch Act. To wit, President Bush requested the resignation of his GSA administrator in 2008 after the US Office of Special Counsel determined she had violated federal law by participating in a video conference with Karl Rove and sending out partisan letters. (The New York Times was scandalized at the time, though I strangely can´t find their editorial calling for Kathleen

Google responds to problems with
searches for Dinesh D´Souza´s ´America´

NEW YORK – Conservative filmmaker Dinesh D´Souza wants to know why his latest docudrama "America: Imagine the World Without Her" was buried by mega search engine Google. "I certainly hope this is not intentional. But how long does it take a technical company to fix a technical problem? “D´Souza told FOX411. “We´re trying to be patient, but this is making it harder for people to get accurate information about the film." Here´s the technical problem: When one normally searches the name of a current movie plus the word “movie” in Google, showtimes and more information for the film typically show up. “America”

Poll: 1 in 6 say immigration
is nation´s top problem
The Hill [DC], by Rebecca Shabad    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 12:24:17 PM     Post Reply
Seventeen percent of people in the United States say immigration is the nation’s top problem, according to a Gallup poll released Wednesday. That´s up from 5 percent in June, and is the highest number Gallup has registered for immigration since 2006, when 15 percent said it was the nation´s most pressing problem. Gallup’s new survey found immigration is virtually tied with “dissatisfaction with government” as the nation´s top problem. The economy and unemployment rank below immigration and “dissatisfaction with government" as top problems, the new poll found. Only 8 percent now rate healthcare as the top problem, down from 16 percent in January, when

A Dose of Common Sense for Detroit

The headlines last week were all about the potential windfall: A second appraisal of works in the Detroit Institute of Arts´ collection had come in and the number was several orders of magnitude larger than the first. The city needs a valuation because the museum´s collection is in play under the current municipal bankruptcy proceeding. Back in December, Christie´s had come in with $454 million to $867 million, that low-high figure the equivalent of an auction "estimate" ranging between a number below which a work won´t sell and another representing its likely maximum hammer price.

Your health care: Obama´s
$18,000 broken promise
Fox News, by Gov. Bobby Jindal    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 11:25:01 AM     Post Reply
How would you feel if someone promised to give you a car, and then reneged on that pledge? That’s how all Americans should feel when it comes to ObamaCare -- because Barack Obama’s failed and discredited campaign promise to lower health insurance premiums has cost the average American family an amount equal to the price of many new cars. During his 2008 campaign, one of then-Senator Obama’s most audacious promises was that his health plan would reduce premiums by $2,500 for the average family. His repeatedly made his pledge on videotape; you can view those promises here. But health insurance premiums

Is The TSA The Most Monstrously
Incompetent Agency In History?
The Federalist, by Daniel Payne    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:28:28 AM     Post Reply
The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has identified a massive new threat to domestic airline security. No, it’s not ISIS, Al Qaeda, or the Taliban. It’s the dead battery on your smartphone. Last week, TSA announced what it called “enhanced security measures” in which passengers will be required to power up their cell phones before boarding their flight. According to Department of Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, TSA has “assesse[d] the global threat environment and reevaluate[d] the measures we take to promote aviation security.” Your cell phone is evidently part of a “global threat environment,” and so it must be turned on in order

Report: Deficit To Soon Skyrocket
To Historic World War II Heights
Daily Caller, by Jonah Bennett    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:26:29 AM     Post Reply
The Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) latest report says that although the federal deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama era, in the near future, it is expected to skyrocket to World War II heights. The years between 2009 and 2012 saw the largest recorded federal government deficits since 1946, based on percentage of the economy. And although the White House also reported that the deficit this year is the lowest of the Obama administration, there is little reason for celebration. Currently, the amount of federal debt is exactly 74 percent of the economy, and if measures aren’t taken to reign

The media can no longer ignore
Obama and Hillary Clinton´s problems

It had to come sometime, and it came in one very bad week for the Democrats: that the many big problems with Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama finally grew too great for the press to ignore. Obama in his own different way is heading towards Nixon-like levels of weirdness, as, beaten down by the failures regarding his ventures, he appears to have quit his own job. A.B. Stoddard of the Hill says in effect he has stopped being president and chooses to live in a world of his own, shutting out the problems that have become overwhelming, giving dinners where he talks

Jose Antonio Vargas and
the End of Driver’s Licenses
National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:10:05 AM     Post Reply
CNN chose to describe the recently detained Jose Antonio Vargas, longtime journalist for U.S. publications and legal citizen of the Philippines, as a “symbol of the immigration debate.” The news network aired his documentary, Undocumented, several times. At the heart of Vargas’s viewpoint — and CNN’s decision to refer to him as a symbol, as opposed to, say, a scofflaw — is the notion that it is unfair to deny citizenship to him, considering his circumstances. Vargas came to the United States from the Philippines when he was 12 and didn’t learn he was in the country illegally until he was

   

 



 
Flow of Central American immigrants
through Mexico shows no signs of slowing
Associated Press, by Staff    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 7/16/2014 5:07:38 AM     Post Reply
CIUDAD HIDALGO, Mexico – Mexico is promising to stem the flow of Central American migrants to the United States by tightening control at its notoriously porous Guatemalan border. But messages from the country´s top two leaders in little more than a week have provided few details on how. And the scene on the ground is business as usual. Dozens of Central Americans who paid $1.50 a head could be seen this week crossing the broad Suchiate River on improvised rafts of inner tubes and wooden boards, in full view of Mexican police on the shore and immigration agents posted on

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin
