With immigration, Obama
lets a crisis go to waste

Washington Times, by Charles Hurt

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 7/9/2014 11:52:01 AM

GULF OF MEXICO — Whatever happened to the Obama administration’s guiding principle never to let a serious crisis go to waste? Ex-White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel pronounced this shockingly brazen political principle before a group of Wall Street executives in November 2008. He said this even before President Obama took office. It was after that historic election, a time when the president was riding high on a wave of good will and political euphoria that few American politicians have ever enjoyed. It was also a time when the president’s party controlled both chambers of Congress and could have approved

Hurt is absolutely right, Obama does not care.

Obama uses executive orders to override the American people but can´t stop the illegals? Rubbish
President Eisenhower stopped illegals. In fact he had them bussed back to Mexico. Obama needs this "crises"

The contrived crisis was exposed, people got mad and Barry got busted before he could turn it to his political advantage.

Obama wants review of Pentagon program that

Daily Mail [UK], by David Martosko    Original Article

Barack Obama said Monday that it may be time to review a Pentagon program that has placed billions of dollars worth of surplus military gear and equipment in the hands of local police forces since before he became president. The U.S. Defense Department has been contributing to the militarization of local police forces since at least 2007, handing over heavy armaments, battle helicopters and armored vehicles for use in urban policing scenarios. ´I think it´s probably useful for us to review how the funding was done, how local law enforcement has used grant dollars,´ Obama told reporters at the White House, ´to

A friend of Officer Darren Wilson has reportedly come to his defense saying that the cop shot and killed Michael Brown because the teen tried to grab his gun, punched him in the face and then charged at him. A woman calling herself ´Josie´ called a local St Louis radio station on Friday claiming to be a friend of the 28-year-old Ferguson police officer. The woman, who said she was a friend of the cop´s girlfriend, said friends and family were too afraid to speak out but she wanted the public to know that Brown, 18, had ´bum-rushed´ Officer Wilson prior to

Cell phone video taken by Ferguson resident Piaget Crenshaw and shown by CNN on Monday provides more footage of the aftermath of the Michael Brown shooting. Crenshaw described the scene to CNN, in which she said that police officer Darren Wilson shot Brown multiple times after Brown had ceased running and turned around. “I knew this was not right, I knew police should not even have been chasing this young boy and firing at the same time,” Crenshaw told CNN. “That fact that he got shot in the face, it was something that clicked in me, I thought, somebody else needs

The indictment of Texas Gov. Rick Perry on two felony counts of abusing his power "potentially was the stupidest thing I´ve seen, I think, in my entire career," MSNBC political analyst Mark Halperin told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Monday. "I hope some judge throws it out right away. "It´s not just kind of funny and ridiculous. But it´s an infringement on individual liberty. He´s got a first amendment right -- just because he´s the governor of Texas. And I think, like I said, it´s easy to joke about this, but this is a serious thing. It is ridiculous that he was indicted for this," Halperin said.

Last week, prompted by complaints about his statement of sympathy on the death of Robin Williams while remaining silent on the killing of an unarmed black man by police, President Barack Obama issued a statement about the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri. In his statement, Obama called the shooting “heartbreaking” and added that he and the First Lady sent their “deepest condolences to his family and his community at this very difficult time.” He also dispatched the Department of Justice to Ferguson to investigate the incident. Obama continued, "As Attorney General Holder has indicated, the Department of Justice is

Outsiders were stunned by the August 15 indictment of Gov. Rick Perry by a Travis County Grand Jury, but they shouldn’t have been. The common perception that Texas is solidly or uniformly “red” is mistaken. Yes, for the past 16 years, Texas voters have elected only Republicans to statewide office, and since 2002 the GOP has controlled both houses of the state legislature, but the partisan divide in the Lone Star State is sharp and highly polarized. In 2012, Mitt Romney trounced President Obama by 16 points statewide, but over 40% of the Texas electorate is resolutely “Blue.”

The mother of Michael Brown said Monday that justice would only be served when the Ferguson, Mo., police officer who killed her son is arrested. Lesley McSpadden told "Good Morning America" that "being fair" and arresting officer Darren Wilson for the shooting of her 18-year-old son would help calm the protests that have roiled the St. Louis suburb for the past week. "Arresting this man and making him accountable for his actions," she replied when asked what justice would look like to her. Her interview came hours after the family released an independent autopsy showing Brown was shot at least

President Obama began a brief, break in his vacation Monday with meetings devoted to Iraq and the unrest in a St. Louis suburb. Obama, who returned to the White House after midnight from his vacation on Martha´s Vineyard, Mass., began with a briefing on the Iraq situation with members of his National Security Council. The president made no statement during a 31-second photo opportunity. The National Security Council meeting took place in the Roosevelt Room rather than the Situation Room, which is undergoing maintenance and an upgrade. Later in the day, Attorney General Eric Holder and aides briefed Obama on the investigation into the

As you’ve undoubtedly heard by now, a grand jury indicted Texas Gov. Rick Perry on two felony counts late Friday. Perry is the first Texas governor to be indicted in office since 1917. He was indicted for threatening to veto funds for the Public Integrity Unit of Travis County’s district attorney’s office, because the head of that office, District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg, had been caught drunk driving, and was later caught on tape abusing her power to try to get out of the DWI charge. Though that office runs out of Travis County, it has statewide jurisdiction over elected officials

Politics as Combat

It has come to this after six years of Barack Obama’s Chicago-style community-organizer governance: The hard Left no longer believes it necessary to pretend that the rule of law matters. It is politics as combat. The devolution can be measured from the trumped-up indictment of Tom DeLay to the trumped-up indictment of Rick Perry. Back in 2005, the idea of exploiting prosecutorial power to criminalize one’s political opposition was still sufficiently noxious that Democrat apparatchiks in Austin understood the need for camouflage. Tom DeLay of Texas was among the GOP’s most effective leaders and fundraisers, having risen to congressional leadership

OSWIECIM, Poland- Walking among the starvation cells and gas chambers where more than a million souls perished, it is hard to explain to my 12-year-old son how the free world allowed this happen. Why did the world’s democracies not stop the Nazi movement in its infancy — before it indoctrinated millions with its hateful ideology, took control of a great power, built its military might, invaded foreign lands and constructed death camps like the one here at Auschwitz? The depressing answer is: for the same reason that the world’s democracies have done almost nothing to stop the rise of the

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

This is an update to the original outline we shared several days ago when we discovered the hidden audio of an eye witness to the Mike Brown and Darren Wilson shooting incident. After our initial discovery the local Ferguson Missouri investigative authorities were notified and very appreciative. Congratulations Treepers – once again the crowdsourcing and research shreds the national media narrative and removes the distorted lies putting the spotlight back on the truth. The local authorities in charge of the investigation extend their thanks and appreciation. Dozens of outlets have now copied the audio video. The story has been read in

This Indictment Of Rick Perry

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.

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.

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.

President Barack Obama is getting off the island. In a rare move for him, the president planned a break in the middle of his Martha´s Vineyard vacation to return to Washington on Sunday night for meetings with Vice President Joe Biden and other advisers on the U.S. military campaign in Iraq and tensions between police and protesters in Ferguson, Missouri. The White House has been cagey about why the president needs to be back in Washington for those discussions. He´s received multiple briefings on both issues while on vacation.

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.

Attorney General Eric Holder has ordered a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown. 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. Last week, Holder announced the federal probe following protests and outrage over the murder of the unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri. Since the murder, the town has erupted into multiple police clashes. Despite a

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. The world’s biggest burger chain has been posting lagging results for some time, particularly in the United States. Blake Casper says he has a very good idea why. “Companies like Chipotle are doing a great job talking to people about healthy food, and they’re changing the dynamic of how people eat,” said Casper, who owns Tampa Bay’s largest McDonald’s franchise group with his sister Allison Casper Adams. “We embrace that

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

Was Michael Brown a "gentle giant," a cigar thief, or a gang member? The black teenager had no adult criminal record, according to the St. Louis County prosecutor. Initial media profiles noted that family and friends described "Big Mike" as not "the type to fight" and "funny, silly, he would make you laugh." (Snip) Michael Brown had struggled in school, but had graduated Aug. 1 from Normandy High School, and had been staying at his grandmother´s apartment in Ferguson this summer.
