How a campaign move on immigration
is haunting Obama now

Washington Examiner [DC], by Susan Crabtree

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/10/2014 5:05:30 AM

The border crisis is forcing President Obama to pay the price for a re-election move he made two years ago. At the time, Obama was hoping to energize Latino voters who were disappointed that he had raised deportations to record levels in an attempt to build credibility with Republican lawmakers for an eventual deal on immigration reform. So in June 2012, Obama announced a half-measure he would take on his own. Through an executive order, Obama allowed hundreds of thousands of undocumented immigrants who came before the age of 16 to remain in the U.S. As a campaign tactic, it was a

"he had raised deportations to record levels in an attempt to build credibility with Republican lawmakers for an eventual deal on immigration reform."

Ummm, no, he changed the definition of "deportation" to make it appear he had raised them to record levels.

The Republicrats are waiting for the lame duck session to pass "reform". My goodness, they´ve even adopted the President´s meme that this is a "humanitarian crisis", and we know how America responds to those.

Honestly, #4, I don´t think Obama´s even close to hurting America´s real treasure. He has destroyed infrastructure, put us in debt, forsaken our allies, etc. etc. However, the real treasure in our country is the heart of the people in the Tea Party and Obama has not laid a glove on that part of America.

The posters are right in saying what´s in the hearts of the TEA Partiers will save this country that is if we get the chance and that is a very big, if! The damage done by Obama and his bureaurcrats is going to be nigh to impossible to repair. Just look no further than Lerner and Koskinen to understand that there are thousands of them employed by the government in every agency. It will be a daunting task and will take a president with a backbone of steel and titanium resolve. My hope is that someone with those qualities can emerge and pull the Republicans out of their pit of comity to fight the fight that would be required.

A permanent majority of voters (including waves of soon-to-be voters aka "illegal immigrants") in key states like California and Florida who are predisposed (genetically?) to go Democrat, pretty much guarantees a de facto One Party State in the near future. There is no way an opposition party to the socialists (should one arise, as we don´t have one even now) could survive an electoral college with an overwhelming Blue State advantage even before any candidate was chosen. I see no other reason why Obama would be pushing this, and I´m sure he doesn´t, either.

There is one action that could and can repair the damage Obozo and cohorts have caused this country. Sadly, there simply are not enough citizens that are capable and willing to do that which is necessary. And that is to rise up in revolution that re-build the country. The current Constitution would be used as a blueprint for such re-building, with necessary changes that would prevent another current situation. Without that revolution, this country is sunk. And no political action will be capable to bring it back.

Great point, #7. Obama only picks fights with sheep, cowards, the sick and the helpless. A head-on confrontation with the TEA Party or our sacred rights and principles will get him set back on his butt so fast that he will think he ran into a wall. We just aren´t mad enough yet.

#9, when the time comes, you will be surrounded by so many patriots that you will think that an announcement that the IRS has been closed down, the Obamas, Harry Reid, Chuck Shumer, Sheila Jackson Lee, Eric Holder, Debbie Washerwoman Shultz and Nancy Pelosi have moved to Australia has just been made and this is the celebration party. We are the surprise that George Custer found waiting around the bend.

Washington Examiner [DC], by Mark Tapscott    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 8/27/2014 5:29:34 AM     Post Reply
American outrage over the gruesome murder of journalist James Foley has prompted the appearance of a reversal of President Obama´s "leading from behind" foreign policy strategy, especially in the Middle East. For months before, as ISIS rolled out of Syria and across Iraq, leaving a trail of horror in its wake all the way near Baghdad, Obama seemed content to leave the Iraqis to their fate. He made new U.S. assistance, for example, contingent on Prime Minister Nouri al-Maliki´s agreement to step aside in favor of a more inclusive government with support from Shias, Sunnis, Christians and Kurds.

CNN has obtained and published an audio recording of a Ferguson, Missouri man engaged in what sounds like a sex chat with a woman. In the midst of it, you can hear gun shots in the background. These are presumed to be, although CNN says repeatedly that it has not verified the recording, the sounds of Officer Darren Wilson shooting Michael Brown. Erik Wemple relates the story behind the recording. Various observers, including CNN’s talking heads, have tried to attach great significance to the audio recording.

I never liked it when George W. Bush used the term “evildoers” to describe al-Qaeda and other terrorists. A lot of other people objected as well, but for different reasons. I didn’t like the term because it always sounded to me like he was saying “evil Dewar’s,” as in the blended Scotch. (This always made some of Bush’s statements chuckle-worthy — “We will not rest until we find the evil Dewar’s!”) I prefer single malts, but “evil” always seemed unduly harsh. The more common objection to “evildoers” was that it was, variously, simplistic, Manichean, imperialistic, cartoonish, etc. “Perhaps without even realizing it,”

   

 



 
Taxpayer-Funded Millionaire

Millionaire and public intellectual Paul Krugman takes homes a $225,000 salary (to do no actual work) from the publicly funded City University of New York. And that’s only a fraction of his total earnings, which include a six-figure salary from the New York Times, where he writes columns that regurgitate Democratic Party talking points in an authoritative voice. Krugman’s latest is an attack on Gov. Rick Perry (R., Texas), who just took an exceedingly handsome mug shot and may run for president in 2016. Perry is also the governor of the state that leads the nation in job growth, a

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr. is enjoying a tidal wave of laudatory press coverage for his activism on the Ferguson, Mo., shooting and subsequent protests. In the 1990s, though, Mr. Holder ignored plenty of cases of District of Columbia black cops killing unarmed black civilians — even when policemen lied about the shootings. Mr. Holder was appointed in 1993 by President Clinton as U.S. attorney for the District of Columbia. At that time, D.C. police were killing more civilians than any other large city police force, based on population. The number of killings by D.C. police quadrupled between 1989 and

WASHINGTON — Panicked Democrats locked in tight midterm races as the party tries desperately to hold onto control of the Senate fear President Obama’s anticipated executive amnesty for about 5 million illegal immigrants may doom their re-election campaigns. New Hampshire U.S. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, who has seen her double-digit lead in the polls evaporate into a virtual dead heat with former Bay State U.S. Sen. Scott Brown, said any such move should be left up to Congress. Shaheen “would not support a piecemeal approach issued by executive order,” said her spokesman Shripal Shah, adding the Granite State incumbent “believes Congress must

After nearly four years of procedural delay, the trial of former CIA officer Jeffrey Sterling is set to open shortly. Sterling was indicted at the end of 2010 for leaking information about a top-secret CIA operation to James Risen of the New York Times in violation of the espionage statutes. It is difficult to regard Sterling as in any sense a whistleblower, though, predictably, he calls himself such. He appears to have given Risen CIA secrets as a way to settle scores with the agency in a dispute over the presence of classified information in memoirs he sought to publish

The political subculture of anti-Obama leftists has entered a phase by this point in the Obama presidency where the truth of its worldview is so well-established to its own adherents that it requires no exposition. Tom Frank, an anti-Obama leftist, interviews Cornel West, another anti-Obama leftist, in a conversation so deeply marinated in shared assumptions that, at one point, both interviewer and interviewee agree that nobody disagrees with them. Frank asks West, “Is there anybody who thinks he’s progressive enough today? West replies, “Nobody I know. Not even among the progressive liberals.” What about maybe the 61 million people who

AUSTIN, Tex. — The trail to Rick Perry’s indictment began with way too many drinks and a drunken-driving arrest for Rosemary Lehmberg, the Travis County district attorney, that was captured in embarrassing detail on videotape. But the conflict between Republicans who control state government and the Democratic district attorney’s office has been playing out for years, forming a complicated back story to the unfolding legal drama known as the State of Texas v.

President Barack Obama´s decision to authorize aerial surveillance of Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) positions in Syria suggests that airstrikes employing manned and unmanned aircraft may not be far behind. All of this is right and proper. Yet danger lurks. The head of Syria´s preeminent crime family—President Bashar Al Assad—waits, crocodile-like, for the American angler to tumble out of the boat. For Assad, opportunity knocks. If he handles matters correctly he can, with an assist from American inaction, return to polite society while others do the anti-ISIS heavy lifting for him.

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them.

They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true.

White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people.

FERGUSON, Mo. — It was 1 a.m. and Michael Brown Jr. called his father, his voice trembling. He had seen something overpowering. In the thick gray clouds that lingered from a passing storm this past June, he made out an angel. And he saw Satan chasing the angel and the angel running into the face of God. Mr. Brown was a prankster, so his father and stepmother chuckled at first. “No, no, Dad!

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.
