The Border Crisis Is Obama’s Hurricane
Katrina? Don’t Be Ridiculous!

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 10:51:46 PM

Some (including some Democrats) are saying that the crisis on the Southwestern border is President Obama’s Hurricane Katrina. But there are at least two fundamental differences between the illegal immigration fiasco and Katrina. First, the response to Hurricane Katrina was actually the largest and the fastest response to any natural disaster in history, as Popular Mechanics, as I recall, later documented. Second, President Bush didn’t cause the hurricane. The current disaster is entirely attributable to Barack Obama’s willful refusal to enforce the immigration laws, in violation of his oath of office. Is Obama’s subversion of the nation’s laws an impeachable offense?

George Bush did nothing wrong in Katrina. But he was crucified by the unholy marriage of the Demon-RATS and the MSM.

Øvomit has done everything intentionally and purely evil in the border crisis, but is being totally protected by the MSM.

New day, same old story.

The President of the US, Bush followed the constitution and waited for the local authorities to ask for federal help.

Unfortunately the recently convicted Nagin was incompetent.

In contrast the border issue is BECAUSE of Obama´s FEDERAL policies and lack of enforcement and the local authorities are having to react.

Perhaps in a just world, we will see the incompetent party thrown in jail for corruption again.

Obama´s price tag for taking care of each illegal immigrant child - $75,000

Cost of a bus ticket to send that child back to their parents - $200

The response to Hurricane Katrina at the real ´Ground Zero´ here on the Mississippi coast, was superb! I know, I had 14 feet of water in my yard from the storm surge, and my (raised) house is the southernmost house in my neighborhood that was still standing after the storm. The response in Louisiana was impeded by the Democrat-party governor and New Orleans officials, specifically to make President Bush look bad.
On the other hand, as far as I can tell, the illegal-immigrant crises is a direct result of Obama´s dereliction of duty and his decision to not secure the border with Mexico.

...it may not be his "Katrina", but Barry can take satisfaction in knowing that his actions and inactions have created the "Perfect Storm"...

...Hinderaker brings up a good point in the last paragraph. Mexico is notorious for the control on their southern border, amazing how many have snuck through...

As I recall Katrina, even the supply trucks couldn´t get through for 3 or 4 days due to flood water everywhere. What on earth more could Pres. Bush have done after the stupid Gov, of Louisiana and jailbird mayor Nagin both refused the President´s pre storm offer of help. All he could do was to overlook the flooding, but he did manage to be a presence at Waveland, Mississippi which was destroyed by the sea surge. There is no comparison of an act of nature to this purposeful planned disaster - I would say this is Obama´s downfall.

Apart from what is actually happening at the border, Obama is establishing a very important principle here, which will be of crucial value in his remaining years in office: an American president, if Democrat, is above the law, since ignoring, flaunting and breaking laws (and oaths of office) now goes completely unpunished. We can thank the GOP for helping Obama establish this "with impunity if Democrat" principle, and we can´t wait to see how Barack Hussein will utilise it in the coming months.

Some will argue that this historic "With Impunity If Democrat" principle only applies to black-Leftist presidents and that all will be back to normal after 2016, but I think we all know that isn´t the case at all.

Not enforcing border security and immigration laws is a perfect way to bankrupt the country faster and get more of his MB jihadists freely into the country, not to mention all the criminals and diseases.

Will you all please stop the "he broke the law bit"?
Zero cannot break the law. He IS the law. He, by his own proclamation, is judge, jury, and executioner. He has a constitution in his head which he follows. In his authority document Congress and the Courts play no role. The chief Czar and all his sub-Czars RULE.
He cannot be impeached. Race riots would ensue. He cannot be controlled. The RINOs in Congress do not want to control him, as he has the goods on them, by golly. That is why he has an FBI and an NSA, after all.
He is a tyrant, after the model of Stalin and Kim Jong Il. We are stuck with him.

Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi has asked Russia to supply Egypt with high-tech fighter jets, attack helicopters, and anti-tank missile systems, according to regional reports. Sisi made the request in Moscow Tuesday during a meeting with his counterpart, Russian President Vladimir Putin, who met with the Egyptian leader to discuss expanding arms exports. The request for these advanced weapons comes just months after the Saudi Arabian government donated $2 billion to Egypt to finance the purchase of Russian-made weapons. Sisi’s reliance on Moscow for these arms is another sign that the Egyptian government is growing more distant from Washington, which,

Senate Budget Committee ranking member Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) is throwing down the gauntlet again. He is calling on every American citizen to call their U.S. senators and demand to know where they stand on President Barack Obama’s planned executive amnesty. Sessions, in a statement exclusively provided to Breitbart News, berated House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, calling on Reid to allow a vote on the House-passed measure that would block President Obama’s attempts to continue or expand the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) executive amnesty to millions more illegal aliens. “Recent developments suggest

The Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency released more than 600 criminal aliens into the U.S. amid a budget shortfall in 2013, an audit of the department released today revealed. The year-long investigation found that ICE released 2,226 illegal immigrants in February 2013 just before the sequestration went into effect in an effort to cut costs. On the weekend of February 23 alone, the inspector general report says ICE released 1,450 illegal immigrants. Conservative news website The Daily Signal, which first obtained the audit, reports that 617 of the aliens released were criminals whose detention was mandatory.

In an interview last week, Barack Obama spoke of the Balkanization of America, where the two political parties are forming “extreme” positions, which keep us from working together to do great things. I wholeheartedly agree -- but let’s take a look back. While we (as a country) maintained philosophical disagreements, during George Bush’s presidency, the two parties cooperated on countless initiatives. And before that, Newt Gingrich and Bill Clinton worked together to achieve some great things, including Welfare Reform. Throughout our history, there have been great philosophical struggles, as to the nature (and role) of government. Our system of government

WASHINGTON - President Barack Obama is loosening restrictions on lobbyists who want to serve on federal advisory boards, a White House official said on Tuesday, a setback to the president´s efforts to tamp down special interest influence in Washington. Obama came to office pledging to curtail the sway of lobbyists and banned lobbyists from serving on such panels, which guide government policy on a range of topics ranging from cancer to towing safety. The president said he was doing so because the voices of paid representatives of interest groups were drowning out the views of ordinary citizens. But many lobbyists

Don’t look now, but Hillary is peaking. People are going to get bored with the 2016 presidential hopeful, if they aren’t already. The firestorm over her Atlantic interview is a drop in the bucket. The book tour, the endless speeches, the gallons of ink spilled on her foreign policy credentials, Benghazi, her health, her Hamptons getaway, her whining about being “dead broke,” her foundation, former law cases, Monica’s reemergence, Chelsea’s pregnancy-- it’s all too much. Amazingly, there’s a good chance Hillary will blow it again. Consider her approval ratings: 66 percent according to a Washington Post/ABC poll in December 2012

WASHINGTON — I talked to Robin Williams once, about breasts. In 1993, when he played a prim British nanny in “Mrs. Doubtfire,” I went to interview him at his Pacific Heights house. “It’s great to be this blue-mouthed old lady hitting on somebody,” he said, in his character’s soft Scottish burr, “opening your blouse and saying, ‘What about these? Behold my dirty pillows, my fun bags. Come nurse at the fountain of bliss.’ ”He was 42 then, wearing his Popeye outfit, a blue-striped T-shirt and black baggy jeans.

Although investors hang on every comment by Federal Reserve Chairwoman Janet Yellen to get insight on the direction of interest rates and what it means for the economy and asset prices, the real power to determine U.S. interest rates may be in the hands of China, according to Lombard Street Research. Facing an overvalued currency that is hurting corporate profits and slowing growth, China appears ready to dump its $1.3 trillion in U.S. Treasury bonds to drive U.S. interest rates up and strengthen the dollar. The secret to China’s spectacular growth beginning in the early 1990s was devaluing its currency

The president who spent years touting the withdrawal of all U.S. forces from Iraq suddenly has had to distance himself from that action. At the White House on Saturday morning — less than 48 hours after authorizing airstrikes against Islamist militants and humanitarian air drops to save the lives of trapped Iraqi civilians — President Obama blamed his predecessor, George W. Bush, for the absence of American troops in Iraq and rejected the assertion that he could have left a small peacekeeping force in the war-torn nation. He uttered those after three years, and a successful re-election campaign, in which

President Obama must really be teed off. Hillary Rodham Clinton, his once-loyal secretary of state and his likeliest successor, has gone rogue, criticizing his foreign policy as too timid. Obama responded with not one but two rounds of golf. Clinton, in an interview with Jeffrey Goldberg published by the Atlantic over the weekend, offered a withering comment on the Obama doctrine, described in shorthand by White House officials as “don’t do stupid [expletive].” Said Clinton: “Great nations need organizing principles, and ‘Don’t do stupid stuff’ is not an organizing principle.” As the criticism became public, Obama was doggedly sticking with
