White House: Texas
border is no ‘Katrina’

Politico, by Jonathan Topaz

Original Article

Posted By:Scottyboy, 7/9/2014 8:29:13 AM

A top White House official on Wednesday defended President Barack Obama’s response to the Texas border crisis and rejected the notion that it could become the president’s “Katrina.” “It doesn’t make sense to compare this to a natural disaster,” White House Domestic Policy Council Director Cecilia Muñoz said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” when asked about the Hurricane Katrina comparison. “This is a humanitarian situation that we have been on top of from the very beginning.” Earlier this week, Democratic Rep. Henry Cuellar, whose Texas district is situated along the U.S.-Mexico border, said he hoped Obama’s decision not to visit the

Comments:
Katrina was no Katrina...
This tsunami of third world flotsam is a man made disaster created in the Oval Office.
Hopefully, people will wake the hell up and make this 0bama´s Alamo.

The Texas border is no "Katrina". True enough.

Katrina was a natural event that was not the responsibility of the federal government, but the federal government got blamed when one state wouldn´t do its job.

The illegal alien crisis is an Obama-triggered event that is Obama´s constitutional responsibility to respond to, and Obama is doing everything he can to undermine any state trying to pick up the slack.

If they define being "on top of" this situation by dumping these people in every unsuspecting city near the border and expecting the local taxpayers to finance it all, then it will soon become a Katrina if it isn´t already. Just wait until the rioting in the camps begins and the diseases break out into the surrounding communities. Obama´s head is going to roll. (figuratively of course)

He promised them paradise to lure them here and they are now living like they lived back home, only with better food.

Katrina was a natural disaster; Invasion is an Obama-created disaster. This works for him on so many levels it is hard to count them. The first two are dumping illegals into communities that have resisted him, thereby punishing those communties; and bringing in hundreds of thousands of YOUNG Democrat breeding machines to do harm to this country for generations to come.

I lived in the New Orleans area during and for several years after Katrina. No. 1 pretty much said it all. Katrina was a natural disaster and the problems were caused during and after by a Democrat governor and a Democrat mayor of N.O. The invasion of illegal aliens is a planned destruction of our nation. President O-blame-others owns this lock, stock, and barrel.

Yes in Texas there is competent local leadership with an incompetent national leader the direct opposite of Katrina.

Perhaps the full cycle of history can be completed if the current incompetent leader is jailed for corruption.

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid says he expects Democrats to maintain control of Senate in the fall elections. Reid cautioned that things could change, and acknowledged he´s concerned about holding an open seat in South Dakota where longtime Democrat Tim Johnson is stepping down. But the Nevada Democrat told the Reno Gazette-Journal before a speech to the Washoe County Democratic Party on Sunday that if the election were held today, he is confident his party would retain the majority. In his speech, Reid praised President Obama´s handling of the crisis in Iraq. He says he opposes moving ground troops into

The speech that made Barack Obama famous cast him as a post-racial figure offering a vision of America no longer divided along black-and-white lines. “I stand here today grateful for the diversity of my heritage, aware that my parents’ dreams live on in my two precious daughters,” Obama, then an Illinois state senator, said in his keynote address at the 2004 Democratic National Convention. “I stand here knowing that my story is part of the larger American story, that I owe a debt to all of those who came before me and that in no other country on Earth is

It may be the most cold-hearted case of the knockout game yet. A 33-year-old punk punched a pregnant woman in the face so hard that she lost consciousness. But the creep was quickly arrested, just blocks away, cops said Friday. Jannatul Ferdous — two months from her due date — told the Daily News she was horrified for her unborn child. “I was scared and worried about the baby,” the 34-year-old victim said at her home in Brooklyn. The suspect, Willie Stephens, doled out the unprovoked smack at 3:45 p.m. Thursday, as Ferdous strolled down Monroe St. near Ralph Ave.

FERGUSON, MO – It’s now been one week since the shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer in the Canfield Green apartment complex. In that time precious little has been said about the investigation into 18-year-old Michael Brown’s death. St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch is on record says that his office is reviewing all relevant information, evidence and witnesses to the shooting. But that has done little to calm the residents of Ferguson who again demanded information on the status of the investigation from Governor Jay Nixon as spoke at a press conference Saturday afternoon.

ANCHORAGE — A polar bear surprised a mother and daughter in a tent on Alaska´s Barter Island, and biologists say such encounters likely will increase with the ongoing loss of sea ice from climate warming. Marie Rexford, 51, and her 81-year-old mother, Betty Brower, were at a fish camp outside the Inupiat village of Kaktovik, the Alaska Dispatch News reported Tuesday. Rexford was pulling on her socks last week when she looked over her shoulder and saw the outline of a paw pressed against the canvas tent. The paw belonged to a polar bear that was trying to push inside,

Concerned that children will be exposed to health risks and protesters, a Lehighton youth soccer team has dropped out of a tournament hosted by KidsPeace this weekend. The Carbon United Soccer Club played in the KidsPeace Soccer Invitational for the last eight years but the U10 team, the Outkasts, backed out this year. Parents and coaches felt uneasy with recent revelations that the nonprofit organization houses children who entered this country illegally, many of whom are Central American. For more than a year, KidsPeace has sheltered children in coordination with the U.S. Office of Refugee Resettlement. About 80 protesters held a rally

Kim Jong-un runs one of the world’s most secretive societies - so secret that despite it covering 47,000 sq miles, you can’t even see it from space.

Hillary Clinton is slipping against her potential Republican rivals in the 2016 presidential race, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll released Thursday afternoon. Clinton, the Democratic front-runner in the still far-away contest, leads her opponents by noticeably smaller margins than she held in April, when the poll was last conducted. Against New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie (R), for example, the McClatchy-Marist poll found Clinton dropped 5% since April and 15% since February. She now leads Christie by just 47% to 41%. The story is the same for former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush (R). In April, Clinton led Bush by a

The Pentagon might not have boots on the ground in Ferguson, Mo., where 18-year-old Michael Brown was shot by police on Saturday, but it does have wheels on the street. Michelle McCaskill, media relations chief at the Defense Logistics Agency, confirms that the Ferguson Police Department is part of a federal program called 1033 that distributes hundreds of millions of dollars of surplus military equipment to civilian police forces across the United States. The materials range from small items such as pistols and automatic rifles to heavy armored vehicles such as the MRAPs used in Afghanistan and Iraq. "In 2013 alone, $449,309,003.71

During her book tour, the question was whether Hillary “We Were Dead Broke” Clinton had become disconnected from ordinary Americans. Now the question is whether she is disconnected from all principles, not to mention the details of her own biography. The running gag with Clinton used to be about her ever-changing hairstyles. Those are nothing compared with the bobs and weaves she has undertaken since her presidential-killing vote to authorize war in Iraq. Let’s see if we can trace things from the start of Clinton’s war

An autopsy conducted on Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old fatally shot by Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson last Saturday, shows that Brown was shot at least six times, twice in the head and all in the front of the body. The New York Times reported the results of a private autopsy conducted by Dr. Michael Baden, who was hired by the Brown family. Baden conducted the autopsy on Sunday, according to the Times. One bullet entered the top of Brown’s skull. Four struck him in the right arm. All bullets hit Brown in the front of the body, according to

Violence continues in Ferguson, Missouri. It began on August 9 with the death of Michael Brown, an unarmed African-American teenager cut down by a white cop’s bullets. Peaceful demonstrations turned into looting, the local police went in with rubber bullets and tear gas, all hell broke loose and, eventually, Missouri’s governor pulled out the local police and sent in state officers instead. But the rioting only paused; it didn’t cease.

They say a prosecutor could get a grand jury to indict a ham sandwich, and this always seemed like hyperbole, until Friday night a Texas grand jury announced an indictment of governor Rick Perry. The “crime” for which Perry faces a sentence of 5 to 99 years in prison is vetoing funding for a state agency. The conventions of reporting — which treat the fact of an indictment as the primary news, and its merit as a secondary analytic question — make it difficult for people reading the news to grasp just how farfetched this indictment is.

The Obama administration has done little to calm racial tensions as they spread from Manhattan to St. Louis to Los Angeles. Quite the opposite, some top officials have fueled African-American fears of racism with false accusations of anti-black discrimination. Attorney General Eric Holder’s race-baiting is no secret. Justice Department documents show the nation’s top cop gave thousands of dollars to help the Rev. Al Sharpton organize marches protesting the death of Trayvon Martin. Now he’s sent the civil-rights unit to St. Louis to do the same thing in the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. Less known, however, is the role of Labor Secretary Thomas

One person was shot and seven people arrested early this morning as police used smoke and tear gas to impose a curfew following the killing of an unarmed black teenager. Officers are seeking the person who shot the critically-wounded victim after the 12am-5am curfew took hold in Ferguson, Missouri - eight days after Michael Brown, 18, was shot dead by police. Police said their strong response came after people broke into a restaurant and took position on the roof overlooking officers, while another man flashed a handgun as armoured vehicles approached.

A ?friend who is conservative and ?Jewish asks a question: “Given ?Obama’s hostile treatment of ?Israel, isn’t it time for Jews to have their Ronald Reagan moment?” By that, he means when the Gipper said, “I didn’t leave the Democratic Party. The party left me.” Without doubt, the party under Barack Obama has left those Jews who view Israel’s security as threatened. Obama recently told a New York Times interviewer, “Because Israel is so capable militarily, I don’t worry about Israel’s survival.” That’s shocking, considering Iran’s threat to wipe Israel off the map once it gets nukes.

Department of Justice spokesman Brian Fallon said it will be performed at the request of Brown´s family in addition to the one conducted by the state. Fallon also said that the Department of Justice will still take into account the state-performed autopsy during its civil rights investigation of Brown´s murder.

Historians will have the rest of the century to unravel the mess that is the Barack Obama presidency. While they can explore these years of foreign policy disaster and domestic malaise at leisure, the rest of us have 29 more months to see just how awful things can get before he slides off to a lucrative retirement. But those who want to start the post-mortem on this historic presidency would do well to read Jackson Diehl’s most recent Washington Post column in which he identifies Obama’s hubris as the key element in his undoing.

McDonald’s has a problem. For the first time in 10 years, the company generated less revenue in a month than it did a year before, and it’s not a blip.

Jeffords had announced in 2005 that he would not seek a fourth term, citing his and his wife´s health problems.
