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.

Some of an estimated 100 Americans who have traveled to the Middle East and joined terrorist organizations like the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) have returned to the United States, a senior administration official said Monday. At a Monday briefing previewing an administration push for a United Nations resolution to prevent the flow of foreign citizens into conflict zones to join terrorist groups, a senior administration official said that an estimated 15,000 individuals had entered Iraq and Syria to join groups like ISIS and the al Nusra Front.

President Obama is “obviously concerned” that an intruder jumped the fence at the White House and made it inside the front door, a spokesman said Monday. “He did indicate as you would expect that his family was in the White House, so he is obviously concerned,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said Monday. Mr. Obama and his daughters actually had just departed on Marine One for Camp David Friday evening when the intruder, identified by the Secret Service as Oscar Gonzalez, an Iraq war veteran, climbed the fence and dashed to the North Portico. First lady Michelle Obama also wasn’t

DES MOINES, Iowa – Democratic candidates finally have found an Obama they´re not afraid to be seen with. While President Obama dutifully avoids battleground races this midterm season, first lady Michelle Obama is tiptoeing into the fray in a bid to drum up votes for party allies in tight contests. The president´s better half stumped for the first time in a 2014 race earlier this month, hitting the trail for Georgia Senate Democratic candidate Michelle Nunn. And she´s expected to travel to Iowa soon in support of Senate candidate Rep. Bruce Braley. The logic behind dispatching the first lady isn´t hard

Former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin recently invited Breitbart News Senior Editor-at-Large Joel Pollak to her home in Alaska for dinner to discuss his new book, Wacko Birds: The Fall (and Rise) of the Tea Party. In a discussion posted on The Sarah Palin Channel, Palin asked Pollak about the book while preparing dinner for Pollak, her dad, mother, and husband Todd. Pollak told Palin, who is considered the North Star of the conservative movement in opposition to President Barack Obama´s desire to "fundamentally change" America, that Wacko Birds is really a "political history of the last four years."

The 33rd person shot in Chicago since Friday afternoon walked into Mount Sinai Hospital just after 1:20 a.m. Monday bleeding from wounds to his neck and back. He had been on his side of a gang border in Little Village when someone opened fire, police said. Neighbors heard the shots and called 911, but responding officers found nothing until the man was dropped off at the hospital, a few fast miles up Ogden Avenue past the police station where officers would respond to the shooting. Once police had a better idea of where to look, they found shell casings and

The King fire in Northern California grew this weekend, destroying at least 10 homes, as officials worried that changing weather conditions could fuel the massive blaze even more. National Weather Service meteorologist Jason Clapp said meteorologists were watching closely to see whether shifting weather patterns early this week would generate winds similar to those present last week when the fire spread quickly. The blaze in Eldorado National Forest has grown to encroach on the Tahoe National Forest, officials said. It grew to 82,018 acres and was 10% contained as of Sunday morning, and more than 5,200 firefighters are battling the

The pictures show Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-Louisiana, manning the spigot helm as an LSU fan is hoisted upside down above a beer keg ahead of LSU´s game Saturday against Mississippi State.

He began the segment by airing a clip from Morning Joe in which host Joe Scarborough seemed to take a jab at what Stelter called Scarborough’s own network’s “saturation” of coverage over Gov.

"Hillary Rodham Clinton is the obvious inspiration, but this is Hillary with a human face," she wrote. During the Cold War, reporters would suggest a kinder, gentler Marxist regime was "communism with a human face."

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.
