MSNBC’s Chuck Todd: Obama
Admin Looks Like They’re
‘Struggling to Run the Govt’

Mediaite, by Andrew Kirell

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 11:47:13 AM

NBC’s chief White House correspondent thinks the Obama White House is really struggling to look like they are in control of the various situations that have unfolded over the last several months. While discussing the unfolding border crisis with the Morning Joe panel on Wednesday, Todd was asked by Mike Barnicle whether the White House is so tired of dealing with the crises that they are, in effect, “just mailing it in” now. Todd hesitated to describe it that way, explaining instead [emphasis ours]: They’re not mailing it in, but what it appears is this is an administration where events are controlling them.

Comments:
The morons in the media are running out of ways to cover for Obama. They will continue to do so, but their reasoning gets more outrageous as the time goes by.

There are three kinds of people: Those who make things happen, those who watch things happen, and those who ask, "What happened?" In fewer than six years, The Obama Administration has gone from the first to the third. Even liberals are noticing.

F. Chuck, you´ve got to understand by now that Val, obama and crew have got many other higher priorities than running the government. He promised he´d remake America and he´s doing just that. Come back in two years and you´ll really see.

Federal Judge Orders IRS
to Explain Lost Emails

A federal judge ordered the IRS Thursday to explain under oath how it lost a trove of emails to and from a central figure in the agency´s tea party controversy. U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the tax agency a month to submit the explanation in writing. Sullivan said he is also appointing a federal magistrate to see if lost emails can be obtained from other sources. Sullivan issued the order as part of a Freedom of Information Act lawsuit by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group. He said the IRS declaration must be signed, under oath, by the appropriate IRS

Remember when President Obama made that surprise appearance in the web series Between Two Ferns? Well, funny story. The Emmy nominations were announced today and… yep, you guessed it. The Obama video got a nomination. The video received an Emmy nod for Outstanding Short-Form Live-Action Entertainment Program, up against the Adult Swim show Childrens Hospital, a digital short for the NBC show Parks & Recreation, The Soup (for its True Detective parody), and this year’s Super Bowl Halftime Show (featuring Bruno Mars). You may recall that the Between Two Ferns video inspired much outrage within the conservative media, especially with Bill O’Reilly

   

 

  


 
Kerry Discusses Cybersecurity

BEIJING—U.S. officials said they had eased relations with China during two days of talks on issues ranging from cybersecurity to foreign currency, but they forged few major deals, suggesting wide gaps remain between the world´s two biggest economies on issues of global significance. Secretary of State John Kerry said the annual talks, known as the Strategic & Economic Dialogue, showed "the U.S. and China are committed to a new model of relations based on practical cooperation, but also constructive management of differences." That was a theme echoed by Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew and by Chinese officials. The good vibes even

Chinese hackers broke into the computer networks of the U.S. Office of Personnel Management earlier this year with the intention of accessing the files of tens of thousands of federal employees who had applied for top-secret security clearances, according to The New York Times. Senior U.S. officials say the hackers gained access to some of the agency´s databases in March before the threat was detected and blocked, the Times reported in an article posted on its website Wednesday night. How far the hackers penetrated the agency´s systems was not yet clear, the newspaper said. Accusations of hacking by China and

Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel indicated the administration isn’t particularly concerned with the uranium seized by ISIS terrorists in Iraq, saying the “old chemicals” aren’t weaponized. Reuters obtained a letter written to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon on July 8 from Iraq’s U.N. Ambassador Mohamed Ali Alhakim, in which the envoy asks the world body for help to “stave off the threat” of the use of the 88 pounds of uranium compounds from the University of Mosul by terrorists. “Terrorist groups have seized control of nuclear material at the sites that came out of the control of the state,” Alhakim wrote,

Supporters of reserve Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi had hoped that Wednesday’s closed evidentiary hearing would result in the judge sending him back to the United States, but the Mexican ordered that he be returned to prison until an Aug. 4 hearing. Tahmooressi, who served two combat tours in Afghanistan, was arrested at the San Ysidro border crossing the night of March 31 and is currently being held in the El Hongo II prison in Tecate, Mexico, for bringing guns into the country. Tahmooressi reportedly had a rifle, a 12-gauge shotgun, a .45-caliber pistol and more than 400 rounds of ammunition in

Many on the Left didn’t want any exemptions to the contraceptive mandate, even for purely sectarian groups. Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, among others, considered that narrow exemption “itself a compromise.” The secularist central planners of Obamacare wanted total participation by all employers. They just couldn’t get away with it politically. So, naturally, they treat any objections from the religious to supposedly generous modifications of the mandate with the greatest impatience. That impatience was on display in Justice Sonia Sotomayor’s dissent from the Supreme Court’s recent granting of a temporary reprieve to Wheaton College as its challenge to mandate-related regulations continues. Sotomayor felt

The Devastation That’s Really
Happening in Colorado
Weekly Standard, by David W. Murray & John P. Walters    Original Article

President Obama visited Denver this week, was offered marijuana, and laughed. His administration made possible the open marketing and use of marijuana in Colorado and Washington state by directing that federal law not be enforced. The president is joined by Hillary Clinton and Rand Paul in supporting marijuana legalization. As Clinton recently told CNN, "On recreational marijuana, states are the laboratories of democracy. We (are) experimenting with that right now. I want to wait and see what the evidence is.” There is no indication that Obama is really paying attention to what he has done in Colorado. During our recent

22 times President Obama was
definitely interested in a photo-op
Washington Examiner, by T. Becket Adams    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 7/10/2014 11:40:23 AM     Post Reply
President Obama said in a press conference Wednesday that he had not inspected the crisis on the border between the U.S. and Mexico because his presence would be little more than “political theater.” “This isn´t theater. This is a problem,” Obama told reporters in Dallas. “I´m not interested in photo ops. I´m interested in solving a problem." Unsurprisingly, the president’s claim that he’s not interested in photo-ops was met with titters, guffaws and outright mockery — because he is most definitely a fan of photo-ops. No, really. That´s pretty much all he does. And although many social media users have already dredged up

Secretary of State John Kerry hopes he has found a partner to take to the climate-change dance, and her name is China. Kerry is in Beijing for the United States-China Strategic and Economic Dialogue, a bilateral series of negotiations that involve top-ranking officials from both countries. The two countries struck deals on eight climate-change projects this week, and China agreed to set more stringent emissions standards for vehicles and greenhouse gases. "This effort has to be mutual," Kerry said Thursday. "It’s not about one country making a demand of the other. It’s the science itself demanding action from all of

After more than a week of protests by local residents in Murrieta against transfers of illegal aliens caught in Texas to a local U.S. Border Patrol facility, the federal government has called off future transfers to the area--for now. Late Wednesday, local Fox affiliate KSWB reported that a fourth planeload of illegal aliens--many of them unaccompanied minors--scheduled for Thursday had been canceled, and no future flights would be scheduled. The announcement will be seen as a victory by anti-illegal immigration activists, who kept a vigil near the U.S. Border Patrol site after successfully blocking the first convoy of buses, which

Since then, Gainesville, Georgia, police have arrested three over a Target parking lot robbery and are looking for another man who punched a woman and stole her Mercedes at a Decatur, Georgia, Target as well. Just days after Target´s request the Gainesville Times reported that three men were arrested for allegedly pulling a handgun to rob a man in a Target parking lot.

Despite fiery statements issued by Hamas spokesmen over the past 48 hours, it was obvious Tuesday night that the Islamist movement was searching for ways to rid itself of the current escalation. Hamas feels that it has been forced into a confrontation with Israel – one that it did not want at this stage because of its increased isolation and financial crisis. The massive Israeli air strikes on the Gaza Strip over the past 24 hours have surprised Hamas and other Palestinian groups. Hamas apparently expected a limited response to the recent rocket attacks on Israeli cities and towns. But as the

The White House on Tuesday formally requested $3.7 billion in emergency funding from Congress to deal with an influx of Central American minors along the southern border. But the proposal was quickly met with broad skepticism among Republican lawmakers, who were doubtful that the package would be approved quickly — if at all. Administration officials said the request is part of a comprehensive strategy aimed at building more detention centers, adding immigration judges, and beefing up border patrols and air surveillance. President Obama has said he hopes such steps will both speed deportations and discourage adults from sending children on

Starting next week, House Republicans will launch a highly visible—and likely tumultuous—three-week process of bringing to the floor legislation to authorize their promised lawsuit against President Obama over his use of executive actions. "In theory, you could report out a resolution tomorrow and vote on it," said a House GOP aide on Tuesday. "But that is not the approach [the leaders] want to take." Rather, the aim is to display—if not actually engage in—a more deliberative process, even if amid controversy. This drawn-out script builds toward a potentially dramatic floor vote held just days, or even hours, before the House adjourns on

Rick Perry (R-TX) inviting him to a meeting with President Obama regarding the Texas border crisis was from Valerie Jarrett. While it´s routine for staff to draft such letters for elected officials, matters of such magnitude and to other elected officials of stature are almost always in the name of the principle.

Fate hasn´t been kind to Hillary Clinton, at least not in its most recent phase. In 2008, when the plate was set for the national Democrats, she lost the nomination to Barack Obama, of scant years and no gravitas, who soared out of nowhere to wrench destiny from her on the unspecified promise of "change." Now, "change" has come, and people don´t like it. Iraq changed from a safe, stable ally (just ask Obama) to a terrorist haven, one of the reasons why, though no fellow Democrats seem likely to edge her, her chances of winning the White House seem dim.

Despite Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson vowing to "stem the tide" of unaccompanied illegal minors across the southern border with Mexico, thousands more are expected to enter the United States by the end of the year. With the system being overwhelmed, Border Patrol agents are concerned about minors who have admitted to being MS-13 members, a brutal street gang from El Salvador that has been successful in infiltrating American communities. Agents are also concerned about minors who have committed acts like torture and murder in their home countries before heading north to the United States. "We have six minors in Nogales

President Barack Obama does not believe his temporary amnesty program for illegal immigrant children has exacerbated the border crisis even though the number of illegal immigrant kids crossing the border spiked the year after he unilaterally enacted the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program in 2012. In fact, Obama thinks programs like DACA and a comprehensive amnesty bill are ways to solve the border crisis. Addressing the press Wednesday after meeting with Texas Governor Rick Perry to discuss the border crisis in Dallas, Obama, when asked if programs like DACA have caused or contributed to the crisis,

Screenwriter James Vanderbilt will make his directorial debut with the film, which will also star Cate Blanchett. Robert Redford has signed on to play Dan Rather in Truth, a film based on the 2005 memoir Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power. The book, written by Rather´s producer Mary Mapes, centers on the firestorm that erupted in September of 2004 after Rather reported that George W. Bush had received special treatment while serving in the Air National Guard during the Vietnam War, a report that was based on documents that turned out to be forgeries.

Kirsten Powers snapped at Bill O’Reilly tonight after he told her she doesn’t know what she’s talking about on immigration, and told O’Reilly she’s tired of him mocking liberals every day on every single issue just because “they care about people.” Powers argued that O’Reilly’s getting his facts wrong and that immigrants coming to the U.S. back in the day (like the Irish) were poor and uneducated, much like the immigrants O’Reilly is so worried about today. O’Reilly dismissed Powers and told her, “You don’t seem to really know what you’re talking about.” That really set Powers off. “I am
