Did Obama Lose His Pen
and Phone at the Border?

Investor´s Business Daily, by IBD Staff

Original Article

Posted By:RustMB, 7/11/2014 9:37:40 AM

Leadership: All year long, President Obama has bragged that if Congress didn´t act on his legislative agenda, he´d do so on his own. But when it comes to the border crisis, he says his hands are tied. Back in January, Obama labeled 2014 a "year of action." He said, "I´ve got a pen and I´ve got a phone" and promised to use them to "take executive actions and administrative actions" if Congress failed to get things done. The White House even issued a "year of action" report this week, which includes "40 actions" Obama has taken (not counting the dozens of unilateral

Forget the pen and the phone. What he´s got is a hammer and a sickle, and he effectively wields both with impunity.

Obama talks in sound-bites. Whatever please him or makes him sound either in control (hence the pen and phone) or hamstrung (hence the blaming of Bush and Republicans) is his mode of manipulation.

Loathing.

Obama is implementing the course of action his group set out to do. It´s the MEDIA who facilitate that process and allow him and his ilk a free pass with his dichotomies. #2 said it best: Obama talks in sound-bites. Whatever please him or makes him sound either in control (hence the pen and phone) or hamstrung (hence the blaming of Bush and Republicans) is his mode of manipulation.

An excellent article which illustrates how slippery Obama is in placing the blame for his policy screw ups on others. Even the normally docile Boehner became frustrated saying that Obama "has been president for five and a half years, when is he going to take responsibility for something".

The Republicans can build all the border fences they want, hire tens of thousands of new border patrol agents, and deploy the national guard to the borderline, but when all that is said and done, the border will be just as insecure as it is today, as long as there is a liberal Democrat President in the White House whose objective is to allow as many illegal aliens to come into the USA and resettle here as possible.

Young illegal aliens are crossing the border unlawfully, surrendering to the border patrol, being put through a streamlined processing procedure, and are then being released with a promise that they will appear sometime in the future for a deportation proceeding, to speed them along, the illegal aliens are handed a bus ticket paid for by the US taxpayer to usually some big sanctuary city run by the liberal Democrats, where there are no effective immigration law enforcement activities allowed, only to disappear and await the next big liberal Democrat

Over the years, the liberal Democrats have amended the immigration laws to make it almost impossible for illegal aliens who are paying immigration lawyers to ever be deported. All this is only going to get worse as foreign countries see that they can dump their surplus poor and uneducated population groups into the USA, and as long as the liberal Democrats believe that they can legalize tens of millions of those illegal aliens and their foreign family members, mostly all poor and uneducated people who believe that the government should take care of them, and then through a path to citizenship process run by the very liberal ethnic and immigrant advocacy groups turn the vast majority of them into new Democrat voters in the years ahead.

Obama Recovery Turns 5:
Are You Better Off?
Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline    Original Article
Posted By: RustMB- 7/22/2014 9:28:02 AM     Post Reply
In a speech last week in Delaware, President Obama was positively bursting with pride about what his policies have produced since the economic recovery started five years ago. "Our businesses have now added nearly 10 million new jobs over the past 52 months," he said, "Construction and housing are rebounding. The auto industry is booming. ... Manufacturing is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. The unemployment rate is at its lowest point since September of 2008."

ObamaCare´s Shrinking Geography

Reform: Probably hoping no one would notice, regulators late last week exempted from ObamaCare five U.S. territories where it was failing. Will they do the same once it´s obvious ObamaCare is failing everywhere else? When the geniuses in Congress and the White House were writing the ObamaCare legislation, they made a slight mistake. The law imposed ObamaCare´s guaranteed issue and community rating insurance mandates on the five territories — which have a combined population of more than 4 million — but it exempted them from the individual mandate and didn´t offer any subsidies. Not surprisingly, the insurance markets quickly collapsed

Separation Of Powers: John Boehner´s lawsuit against President Obama is being mocked by the very same people who dismissed an earlier challenge to Obama´s imperial ways — one the Supreme Court unanimously upheld. That case involved Obama´s decision in early 2012 to make "recess" appointments to several key posts, though the Senate was still in session. As with Boehner´s proposed suit, it was widely ridiculed as a "political stunt" without legal merit that would end up backfiring on the GOP. Laurence Tribe, the left´s favorite constitutional law professor, said, "Whatever standards the courts ultimately adopt . .. this case ought to be

Health Reform: Nobel Prize-winning economist Paul Krugman says critics of ObamaCare should cease and desist, because the law is "working." Given his track record on health care analysis, we´ll politely ignore this advice. In 2011, the same Krugman declared the Veterans Health Administration was "a huge policy success story, which offers important lessons for future health reform" because, among other things, "it´s free from the perverse incentives created when doctors and hospitals profit from expensive tests and procedures." It turns out the VHA is more akin to a cesspool of bloated bureaucracy, mismanagement, deadly delays and cover-ups. A couple years earlier, Krugman was

ObamaCare Enrollment
Numbers Unreliable, Audit Finds
Investor´s Business Daily, by John Merline    Original Article
Posted By: RustMB- 7/9/2014 6:59:59 AM     Post Reply
Buried in a largely overlooked government audit of the Obama-Care exchanges is a finding that casts still more doubt on the reliability of the 8 million enrollment number commonly cited by the administration and the press. In a section titled "Other Issues," an inspector general report released last week found that the HealthCare.gov marketplace couldn´t show it had been reconciling its monthly enrollment numbers with insurance companies. That´s despite the fact that the law specifically calls for this reconciliation, and the fact that, as the IG report notes, "the federal marketplace obtained the services of a contractor to reconcile enrollment

Bias: You´d think that a government audit showing how ObamaCare couldn´t tell whether millions of enrollees were eligible for the subsidies they´re getting would be front-page news. Instead, the press hid it from view. If you wanted to read in the New York Times about these findings — which detailed rampant problems verifying eligibility and income information from millions of ObamaCare applicants — you had to dig 17 pages into the news section. In the Washington Post, the story was on page 11, after stop-the-press-stories like a change in House travel reporting rules and a puff piece on the new VA administrator.

Government Audits Reveal
Vast ObamaCare Failures

Accountability: Two new audits reveal failures in ObamaCare on a scale even we didn´t think possible, with unresolved discrepancies, rules violations and technology problems that expose taxpayers to massive overpayments. In the first of a series of ObamaCare audits, the Health and Human Services inspector general found 2.9 million "inconsistencies" in applications submitted to the federal HealthCare.gov exchange in the first five months of open enrollment. In other words, the Social Security numbers, income, family size, citizenship or other information applicants provided didn´t match existing government data. Some 1.3 million of the problems involved citizenship, and an additional million involved income, the

In her just-released memoir, 27 year-old "Girls" star Lena Dunham claims that as a 19 year-old Oberlin College student in Ohio, she was raped by a college Republican. In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow. The most sensational moment comes from the fact that "Barry" wasn´t wearing a condom. In the next chapter, Dunham backtracks with the claim that she´s an "unreliable narrator" and accuses "Barry" of rape: [I]n another essay in this book I describe a sexual encounter with a mustachioed campus Republican as the upsetting but

A recently retired Secret Service agent told MailOnline on Thursday that former director Julia Pierson´s resignation will be welcomed by the agency´s rank-and-file because ´people in the service thought she was a joke from Day One.´ He attributed her swift fall from grace to a cadre of ´p***ed off agents who had had enough´ of feeling disrespected by the service´s first female director. ´Putting her in charge was part of the [Obama] administration´s push to feminize the service after the "hookergate" nightmare,´ the agent said, referring to agents who were fired after patronizing prostitutes during a security-check trip to Colombia

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

What on earth is an ohbee-guynee? Apparently it is a weird Obamaspeak pronunciation of OB/GYN (pronounced oh-bee-gee-why-en). For the president’s benefit, let me specify that means a doctor who delivers babies and takes care of the lady parts. When President Obama announced the departure of Eric Holder from his position as attorney general, he also mentioned his “good friend,” the AG’s wife, Dr. Sharon Malone, and he called her an “ohbee-guynee.” (snip) it almost seems as though someone raised in a fantasized USSR training camp for deep cover agents was inserted into the identity of Barack Obama and loosed upon

It’s the “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.” A New York appeals court next week will consider whether chimps should have the same rights as human beings. The extraordinary proceeding is the result of a lengthy battle by animal-rights activists who argue that animals with human qualities — including chimps — are entitled to human protections, including freedom from captivity. Steven Wise, part of the Nonhuman Rights Project, which is leading the effort, will have to convince a panel of Albany appellate judges that a chimp name Tommy is a “legal person” to get him moved from a cage

It is the stuff that nightmares are made of, and day by day it is getting worse. The Ebola epidemic, says Dr Margaret Chan, director-general of the World Health Organisation (WHO), is now “the greatest peacetime challenge” since the Second World War. Yet her own organisation’s tardiness, partly caused by cuts, together with reductions in--and misuse of--funds elsewhere, are largely responsible for Ebola spiralling out of control. [Snip] It’s just the beginning. At present the numbers of people infected are thought to be doubling in under 30 days--and the blue-chip US Center for Disease Control and Prevention predicts that, if Ebola

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

In a speech in Boston, First Lady Michelle Obama left behind talk of exercise and school lunches, exchanging it all for bald politics by claiming that under her husband the US economy is now better off "by almost every economic measure." The First Lady appeared at the Strand Theater Friday to stump for Martha Coakley´s campaign for Governor of Massachusetts. Coakley needs help badly, as even in blue, blue Massachusetts, the race between Democrat Coakley and Republican Charlie Baker is essentially a toss up. In her remarks, Obama pushed the President´s newest campaign line that he has saved the economy based on

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in
