Rick Perry to greet
Obama on Dallas tarmac

Politico, by Katie Glueck

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/9/2014 5:04:06 PM

Texas Gov. Rick Perry is slated to greet President Barack Obama on the tarmac in Dallas on Wednesday ahead of a likely private meeting with him in the Lone Star State, a spokesman for the governor said. Perry, a Republican and potential 2016 presidential contender, has been pushing Obama to come to the Texas border with Mexico to see the influx of illegal immigrants, many of them minors, gathering there in what’s been described as a mounting humanitarian crisis. The governor had previously declined to greet the president at the Austin airport and, in a letter to the White House, asked

Watch Obama do the quick tarmac handshake and then not have time for the meeting or only have 5 minutes for it.
He´s 100% untrustworthy.

Perry mentioned wanting to meet with Obama on matters of substance. Obama probably mis-heard it as "substances".

We´ll get another WH photo of Obama looking concerned like the Christie photo after Sandy. The only thing that accomplished was Obie´s reelection.

Rick Perry Wants meeting With
Obama, Not Handshake
Wall Street Journal by Colleen McCain Nelson

Posted by JoniTx on 7/7/2014 10:184 PM

When President Barack Obama arrives in Austin, Texas, on Wednesday, Gov. Rick Perry won’t be there to greet the commander in chief. The Texas governor’s office said the White House had invited Mr. Perry to meet the president on the tarmac in Austin. But in a letter Mr. Perry sent Monday, he told the president: Thanks, but no thanks. Instead, Mr. Perry suggested the two meet privately to discuss the surge in children and other migrants from Central America illegally crossing the U.S. border...

Is there not even one governor in this country who will stand up to the collectivist tyrant?

Perry did get what he wanted- a private meeting on the helicopter and then a larger meeting with other TX officials.

#4. The President wanted Governor Perry to meet his plane on the Austin tarmac to welcome him to Texas. The President wanted nothing more than a handshake. Rick Perry refused, demanding a private meeting instead of a tarmac handshake. The President agreed to a private meeting in Dallas and so Perry met the plane on the DALLAS tarmac with a handshake and a meeting to come later in the day. Rick Perry won this round.

Wanted: An attorney general

Washington Times, by Marco Rubio    Original Article

It is no secret that the Obama administration has demonstrated questionable commitment to the rule of law. It has undermined the separation of powers by disregarding congressional enactments while pushing executive power far beyond its constitutional boundaries. It has further undermined limited government by disregarding federalism and pushing Washington-knows-best legislation that far exceeds anything the Founding Fathers could have conceived. In recent years, a politicized Justice Department has refused to defend bipartisan legislation in court and resisted congressional oversight. Its practice of entering into extremely generous “settlements” with environmental and other liberal groups raises questions about whether the administration is welcoming

How to introduce students to conservative thought? It’s hard. The colleges and universities aren’t interested. The media and popular culture are hostile. What if young Americans nonetheless become aware of the existence of such a thing as conservative thought? How to convey its varieties and complexities? Even tougher. You can write articles and put things online, but there’s an awful lot competing for young people’s attention these days. But there’s good news nonetheless. Help has arrived. Its name? President Barack Obama. The decomposition of the Obama presidency has created what Obama might call a teachable moment. This is, needless to say,

   

 



 
Sam Nunn condemns ‘shameful’

Sam Nunn on Thursday condemned as “shameful” that TV spot from Republican U.S. Senate candidate David Perdue that accuses Michelle Nunn and the foundation for which she worked of giving money to terrorist-linked organizations. “It’s shameful. Particularly when you know that everybody in the opposition campaign knows that that’s not true,” her father, the longtime former U.S senator, said in an hour-long interview. “It’s not like they believe it. There’s too much these days of anything that works, regardless of what lines it crosses.” Michelle Nunn’s father also said his daughter, the Democratic nominee for Senate, has little obligation to

Disclosures Pried From Government Strongly

New evidence pried from the government under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) proves the point I have posited here at Ordered Liberty: The federal government willfully intervened on behalf of al Qaeda terrorist Anwar al-Awlaki on October 10, 2002, undoing his arrest on felony fraud charges when he was detained at JFK International Airport in New York, and allowing him to walk away with a Saudi handler. As I argued over two years ago, the government’s story to the contrary – viz., that it was moved by sheer coincidence on the eve of Awlaki’s arrival to pull the plug

Via the Standard, my mental image of Democratic incumbents and their strategists reacting to this clip is of Toht’s face melting off after the Ark is opened in “Raiders.” He’s saying this, mind you, on a day when Mitch McConnell’s Democratic opponent in Kentucky refused to answer a question about whether she voted for him in 2012. A study released a few days ago found that barely more than a third of the Democrats running for Congress this year have expressed support for ObamaCare. The GOP made more noise yesterday about the one-year anniversary of the federal O-Care exchange opening for

Most Americans don’t really care about contemporary political issues or the rudimentary workings of their government. But they sure do love voting. And the biggest fans of “democracy” treat this orgy of vacuous lever-pulling as if it were sacred or patriotic. It is neither. In 2013, President Barack Obama, who’s often argued that voting should be easier, issued an undemocratic Executive Order to create a commission to investigate how to expand participation in democracy. Here’s what the New York Times Editorial Board had to say about the ensuing report: A superb report released Wednesday by the Presidential Commission on Election Administration can

In a new book on the 1987 scandal that wrecked Gary Hart’s presidential chances, Matt Bai argues that the episode marks the moment when political reporting went tabloid. If Matt Bai becomes the instrument of redemption for former senator Gary Hart, best known as the central figure in a sex scandal that sank his front-running presidential campaign and provided endless fodder for the late-night comics, he’s probably just in time. Hart—who, according to Bai’s new book, All the Truth Is Out, has struggled to find a purpose in life since his descent into tabloid hell a quarter-century ago—turns 78 in November. It will

Flashback: Senator Obama rips Bush

A nice catch from our friends at Grabien, who had to go all the way back to 2005 to find this nugget. At the time, the US prepared for a predicted epidemic of the avian flu, also known as H5N1, of global proportions. The virus had been identified for 18 years by that time, but by the end of 2004 had only resulted in 36 deaths and 50 known cases over the prior two years, according to WHO data. In 2005, the number of cases would jump to 98 and deaths to 43, and the prevention of a pandemic became

President Obama claims bad intelligence caused him to miss the threat from ISIS, but critics say he closed his ears to warnings. Could the same thing be happening when it comes to the threat from homegrown jihadis in America? On Tuesday, Alton Nolen was charged with first-degree murder in the gruesome beheading of a female worker at an Oklahoma food-processing plant. Prosecutors tie the killing to his recent suspension from the plant and discount any link to Islamic terrorism. For the FBI, too, it’s just a case of “workplace violence.” Yet, according to police, Nolen had become a fervent Islamic proselytizer. His Facebook page

The agent tasked with securing the Atlanta site where an armed civilian rode an elevator with Obama has one of the toughest jobs in the agency. What goes into protecting the president. There’s no wiggle room in Secret Service standard operation procedures for presidential visits: The security guard who pushed elevator buttons for President Obama and his entourage at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on September 16 should not have been allowed to carry a gun that day. The more the Secret Service investigates, the less of a threat the man, who has not been identified publicly, appears to be.

In light of my two lists of President Obama’s top 10 constitutional violations — for 2011 and 2013 – a few readers have asked me to follow up on my short statement about Attorney General Eric Holder’s tenure by putting together a list for him. I had started thinking about that, but then came across this item by Hans von Spakovsky (who co-authored with John Fund a book on Holder’s missteps), which details Holder’s “7 Worst Actions as Attorney General.” Here’s a summary of the list: Operation Fast and Furious, for which the House of Representatives held him in contempt.

5 Reasons to Ignore Negative

Pat Roberts is going to win in Kansas. A new USA Today/Suffolk University poll has his challenger, Greg Orman, beating him by five points, 46% to 41%. Here are five reasons that won’t happen: 1. President Barack Obama is widely disliked in Kansas. His approval rating is 33%, meaning that the overwhelming share of voters who turn out will vote Republican at the federal level. 2. Pat Roberts is a known quantity. He’s a well-known figure in the state. His approval ratings might have taken a beating of late, but Sen. Roberts is in line to be chairman of the Agriculture Committee, and

President Barack Obama has taken a lot of flack since his Sunday night “60 Minutes” interview, in which he blamed the intelligence community for his failure to tackle the threat posed by the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria. And that is right and proper. Because not only was his excuse of blaming us a lie, but when questioned on his lie, White House press secretary Josh Earnest doubled down with a whole new lie — both of which are easily, publicly proven false. On Sunday, Obama said the intelligence community had underestimated the rise of ISIS, saying in an interview

Former President Jimmy Carter claimed Wednesday that he would have been re-elected and beaten Ronald Reagan in 1980 if had been more “manly” in his dealings with Iran. Interviewed by the show "CNBC Meets," Carter repeated his belief that the failed mission to free American hostages held in Tehran killed his chances, but then added that had he gone to war, America would have rewarded him with a second term in 1980.

My last article for American Thinker was too long. And too short. Too long because the gurus tell us articles should be about 600 words. My story about the president talking to the black caucus about white people inflicting constant racial injustice on black people came in at 1500 words. I was just getting warmed up. I thought it strange that at the same time the president was trying to persuade us that black people are relentless victims, black people were committing acts of racial violence in places like Seattle, Miami, Indianapolis, Bronx, Ferguson, Kansas City, Providence, Minneapolis and 18 miles from where

The Obama administration found itself scrambling on Tuesday to defend President Barack Obama for his lackluster 42% attendance record on daily intelligence briefings, a finding from a new report issued by the non-partisan Government Accountability Institute (GAI). When asked about the GAI revelation on Fox News, State Department spokeswoman Jen Psaki appeared flustered and unprepared. "Well, I have no validation of those statistics," said Psaki. "There are a range of ways that you can get your intelligence briefings on the road, in the White House, and I know that he receives those whenever he can."

The quintessential question of Watergate was “what did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer. Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper. After skipping 58% of his daily intelligence briefings in Term 1 and 59% of them in Term 2, he went on 60 Minutes and blamed intelligence agencies for being

Kansas Tea Party supporters are threatening to sit out the state’s pivotal Senate election, potentially dealing another blow to the reelection hopes of Sen. Pat Roberts (R-Kan.). Though schisms within the GOP base rarely have such an outsized impact on a general election contest, the lack of support from the conservative base could be devastating to the vulnerable Roberts’s chances against surging independent Greg Orman. Multiple sources tell The Hill that a group of Tea Party leaders in the state are meeting Wednesday to try to decide whether they should go to bat for the incumbent this fall or sit out of

President Obama this week committed professional suicide. Let me explain. There is a theory in politics that once a leader has fired 50 or more people from his or her administration, he or she is finished. The reason being that by creating so many enemies ‘outside the tent’, the tent itself becomes too deluged with poisonous bile to avoid sinking into a quagmire of back-stabbing ignominy. Obama went a lot further than firing 50 people. He managed to single-handedly alienate 200,000 employees in the American intelligence agencies by going on 60 Minutes and ruthlessly chucking them all under a bus

Count House Speaker John Boehner as a fan of Jeb Bush for president. He also hasn´t spoken to Texas GOP Sen. Ted Cruz in two years. The driving issue of the 2016 election will be “competence,” and if former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush runs, “he’s got a real shot” at winning, the Ohio Republican told the Cincinnati Enquirer on Tuesday. Boehner applauded Bush’s ability to “talk about Republican issues better than most anybody that we’ve got out there,” approving of his “real record of reform” as Florida’s governor from 1999 to 2007. He also called potential candidates Ohio Gov. John

HOUSTON, Texas -- Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay was found not guilty today by the Texas Court of Criminal Appeals. This is the highest appellate court in Texas for criminal cases and thus brings DeLay’s political persecution to an end. The court upheld the ruling last year from the Texas 3rd Court of Appeals. That decision tossed out the convictions on money laundering and conspiracy charges. At that time Justice Melissa Goodwin wrote “The fundamental problem with the state´s case was its failure to prove proceeds of criminal activity,” according to a September 19th report on Breitbart News.

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which
