The president’s ‘man-caused’ disaster
New York Post, by Rich Lowry

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/12/2014 7:12:38 AM

As a defender of the nation’s borders, President Obama is a hell of a pool player. The president enjoyed a game at a bar in Denver with Colorado Gov. John Hickenlooper the other day, without the noir atmosphere of his furtive visits to pool halls with his grandfather as a kid, when he felt “the enticement of darkness and the click of the cue ball, and the jukebox flashing its red and green lights.” Obama’s game the other day was bright and cheery, as one would expect of a president who didn’t have any depressing visits to frightened ranchers, overwhelmed border agents or desperate migrants on his future itinerary.

Obama´s not worried because he´s outnumbering the Conservatives AND Republicans with illegals so the DEMONRATS can stay in power and create a DICTATORSHIP....which is their dream. AND the Blacks also are helping Obama and his DEMONRATS in spite of the obvious facts that show Obama and the WH Administration has impoverished them more than ever and NOW with these Illegals...who WILL (with Obama´s help) take any and all jobs the blacks could have hoped to have. Yea, but keep supporting Obama (your Enemy) so he can impoverish you all and turn your race into more slaves than has ever happened in the history of the world. The left are a bunch of "Mr. Bills."

FTA: ´... half of the money goes to the Department of Health and Human Services “for acquisition, construction, improvement, repair, operation and maintenance of real property and facilities.´

Sounds like a do-over for FEMA camps needed to house Americans who object to the take-over of their country by Illegal Aliens.

Rich Lowry now uses the word "migrants". Nothing says Boomtown insider like a willing adoption of Leftist terms.

Thanks to Rich Lowry I just learned a new word - "argot". a specialized idiomatic vocabulary peculiar to a particular class or group of people, especially that of an underworld group, devised for private communication and identification...

Yep, that fits for the Demonrats - they know what they are talking about but the rest of us who aren´t part of their gang don´t.

FTA: The enforcement portion of the request, according to CIS, “is not truly geared toward removal,” but instead to “recouping costs for temporary detention and subsequent transporting of aliens.”

So the entire purpose of the extra $4 billion is not the stop, limit, or otherwise control the illegal immigration, but to expedite the redistribution of the illegals throughout our country. Got it.

If any Republican votes to support this funding request, he should immediately be targeted for removal for terminal stupidity.

"The president´s ´man-caused´ disaster," indeed!...And our undocumented Sunni Muslim street thug, along with the following associated hooligans, traitors, thieves and assorted riffraff, have brought it all about, through a series of well-coordinated White House "planning sessions" over the past few months:

-Cecilia Munoz, the former Director of LaRaz, now Lord Obama´s Director of The Domestic Policy Council

-White House Counselor John Podesta

-Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson

-Richard Trumka, President of the AFL-CIO, along with the leaders from various other radical labor organizations across the country

-Valerie Jarrett, Senior Obama Adviser

-Katie Beirne Fallon, Lord Obama´s Director of Legislative Affairs

-The leadership of: (a) "Fast For Families" (b) "America´s Voice" and (c) "The National Immigration Forum"---All extremely radical illegal alien advocacy groups.

Approving billions of dollars now, would fund the building of another, huge, permanent Federal Bureaucracy. Think Homeland Security and the Education Department.

It would become the Welcome Wagon to any illegal who wants to come here. Certainly, it would need medical personnel, education providers, social workers, community liaison personnel, clerical staff, food service people, custodial and janitor services, psychologists, and, lots and lots of Supervisors. The list goes on and on. (What else have I forgotten?)

Just like the Medicaid, unemployment, disability ranks, and the overreach of the EPA, Healthcare, Education and IRS, its tentacles would entwine itself into our society for perhaps, the final piece of social engineering.

...about half of the money goes to the Department of Health and Human Services “for acquisition, construction, improvement, repair, operation, and maintenance of real property and facilities.”

So four billion dollars of our tax dollars is being used to build public housing for people who are here illegally?

The Democrats are the ones always griping about how cheap Republicans are and how generous and charitable Democrats are. But they never use their own money, do they?

Now is the time for those who are on Obama´s side of this illegal immigrant issue to pony up some big bucks to build this public housing and not to ask those of use who don´t break the law to use our money.

I have an idea. Since Democrats are so quick to judge that Republicans are mean and nasty, how about we ask Democrats to send their money to Israel to rebuild it after the rocket attacks?
How about we send some money to Christian missionaries overseas in hostile territory?
How about we charitably offer to pay the one-way bus or train tickets for the illegals to go home?
How about Democrats pony up money to create special disease-control clinics for the illegals who are sick?
How about Democrats´ paying to refit airplanes used to ferry illegals (without ID) throughout the country with special air filtration systems that will catch microbes?

Of course, even if such a bill were to pass and to be signed into law, that’d be no guarantee that the president of the United States would enforce it.

Got that right.

The Obama presidency has been a disaster since day one. Heard a report that said none of the money he is asking for will be used to ship illegals back to where they come from. This is immigration reform, Obama style.

On a different note. Is the picture on the homepage for real? Obama is flipping the bird again. Who is he talking to?

I believe obama and the Democrats are trying to destroy the country and the Constitution by having an open southern border. The GOP establishment is telling us everything is ok because they want an open border too. Impeachment is off the table so the GOP controlled House will not do anything. I´m sitting here in Texas watching this invasion by illegal aliens and there is nothing being done! We secured the South Korea border for them so that not person can get through but we are told we can´t secure our own border!!!!

Maybe the nearly 4 Billion is actually payola promised to the countries for sending their expendable children on the modern crusade.
What amount has been promised to the slacker parents for exposing those children to fear disease pain and death while alone in the power of criminals??
How unfeeling to even pretend they send them to escape the same conditions at home.
No they must blame the American people who no longer have the wealth to save their own children because it has all been squandered and the assets to correct things locked up.

Obama does not want to stop the flood of illegal aliens, instead he wants to legalize that flood of mostly all poor and uneducated people believing that in the years ahead the vast majority of them will become Democrat voters.

If the liberal Democrat amnesty bill, now being pushed by Obama, the liberal Democrats and some cheap labor Republicans as comprehensive immigration reform passes and becomes the law, what we are seeing now along the borderline will be a drop in the bucket compared to the numbers of aliens who will be entering the USA. There very well could be 20 million illegal aliens here and every one of them, once legalized, will gain eligibility to bring their close foreign family members here in unlimited numbers. To a certain degree that mass migration of the relatives of illegal aliens is already underway, that´s what we are now seeing along the borderline.

The world now knows that Obama will never enforce the immigration laws, so get ready for a big surge of illegal aliens who know that Obama has allowed the system to be overwhelmed, so those illegal aliens will know that they will be able to stay in the USA for many years to await amnesty before any effective enforcement action would be taken against him or her, and they they can buy years more by failing to appear for any immigration court hearing.

The Worrying Vacuity Of Hillary Clinton

I’ve tried to avoid the Clinton book tour bullshit this past month or so. Not good for my blood pressure. When I checked in occasionally, it was to discover that nothing much has changed. The Clintons are still self-pitying money-grubbers – $12 million in speaking fees since she left the State Department? – and now their offspring, exploiting her nepotistic advantage with all the scrupulous ethics of her parents, is continuing the grift. If you ask of Clinton what she’s fighting for, what she believes in, if you want to get her to disagree with you on something, good luck.

Allies of Bill and Hillary Clinton have declared war against Barbara Comstock, the Republican candidate for Virginia´s 10th District and former Clinton opposition researcher. Comstock rose to prominence in the 1990s first as a staffer for Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., and then as the chief counsel for the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. Her adeptness at reading government documents and finding information that led to the removal of Clinton staffers made her a star on the Right. And now she’s running for Congress to replace Wolf. Time for the Clinton machine to go to war. And go to war

   

 



 
Ryan’s Anti-Poverty Plan

President Obama famously accused Representative Paul Ryan (R., Wisc.) of “thinly veiled Social Darwinism” for one of his budgets. It will take a special kind of cynicism to make that claim about Ryan’s new anti-poverty proposal. Obama’s partisans will no doubt find a way, but fair-minded observers will see a creative, thoughtful approach to a topic that’s often politically neglected. Ryan proposes and endorses a range of ideas to fix the safety net and address the root causes of poverty. He would offer states the option of an “Opportunity Grant” to replace, dollar for dollar, the amount of money they currently

Hillary is supposed to be the juggernaut of the ages, awash in money, feminist adulation and nostalgia for the security and serenity of the Clinton years, when nothing much happened beyond Bubba’s Oval Office pantry.

HOUSTON — When Gov. Rick Perry of Texas announced plans to deploy 1,000 National Guard troops to help with the border crisis, it came with a power unexpected by some. By deploying them himself rather than through Washington, he has the power to order the troops to make arrests and apprehensions, something Guard troops in past border deployments have been prohibited from doing. Immigrant rights advocates and others, including former federal officials involved in previous National Guard mobilizations, said the troops would lack both training and federal oversight, creating a risk of civil rights violations and deadly encounters with immigrants.

In 1983, Barack Obama was a senior at Columbia University. He was not well known. He lived off-campus, had a few close friends, and spent a lot of time reading. He went to some meetings of the Black Students Association, but no one remembers seeing him there. He majored in political science, with a concentration in international relations, and classmates and professors say he was an attentive and intelligent student. But he was not an active participant in student life. He was not a student radical. He did not go on a hunger strike. He did not storm any administration

Maybe US world leadership isn’t dead after all: Our government actually led from the front in the Middle East this week. Too bad it was the Federal Aviation Administration, awarding Hamas its first tangible war victory over Israel. True, Secretary of State John Kerry is still in “leading from behind” mode, pushing an “immediate” Hamas-Israel ceasefire from behind Egypt, the United Nations, Qatar, Turkey, the Palestinian Authority and so on. Rather than fully supporting America’s top Mideast ally in a war against fanatic jihadist terrorists, Kerry’s trying to strike a fair balance — consulting Israel and anti-Hamas Egypt one day, and Hamas’

Posted By: StormCnter- 7/25/2014 4:50:43 AM     Post Reply
Earlier this week, a three-judge panel in the D.C. Circuit Court ruled that, contrary to the Obama administration’s implementation and an Internal Revenue Service rule, Obamacare’s subsidies for private health insurance were limited to state-run health exchanges. The reasoning for this ruling was simple: That’s what the law says. The section dealing with the creation of state exchanges and the provision of subsidies states, quite clearly, that subsidies are only available in exchanges "established by a State," which the law expressly defines as the 50 states plus the District of Columbia. Obamacare’s defenders have responded by saying that this is obviously ridiculous.

Questions for Obamacare Now

Yesterday, I outlined what we knew about Halbig v.

Now I propose to outline what we don’t know: namely, what will happen after the case winds its way through the court system. If the U.S. Supreme Court ultimately rules for the government, the answer is, “not much; things go on as they are.” But what if the justices take the case and rule for the plaintiff?

A year after news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal broke, former First Lady Hillary Clinton allegedly told a Pulitzer-prize winning journalist that it was former President Bill Clinton’s abusive mother that caused his unfaithfulness and sex addiction, a new book claims. That journalist was Lucinda Franks and while her latest book, “Timeless: Love, Morgenthau, and Me,” doesn’t have much to do about the Clintons, the part that does offers never before reported information from a 1999 interview with the former First Lady. The New York Daily News obtained parts of the book a month before its scheduled August 2014 release.

While our current secretary of state John Kerry is under fire for sarcastically joking about Israel’s “pinpoint operation” in Gaza, one former secretary of state echoed those sentiments during an appearance on CNN Tuesday afternoon. Speaking to Wolf Blitzer, Madeleine Albright said she thinks Israel is “overdoing” it with its offensive into the Gaza Strip and losing some of its “moral authority” in the process. “I do think the point has to be made, if rockets are being shot at Israel, that Israel does have a right to defend itself,” Albright said. “But the bottom line is the question of proportionality.” Blitzer singled out her use of the word

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

Paul Ryan´s new book, opening the door to future book regulations -- or even a ban. "By failing to affirm this publisher’s constitutional right, statutory right, to disseminate a political book free from FEC conditions and regulations, we have effectively asserted regulatory jurisdiction over a book publisher,” warned Chairman Lee E.
