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.

A Montana senator who is running for re-election suggested Wednesday that medication he took for post-traumatic stress disorder after service in Iraq may have been responsible for apparently plagiarized passages in his thesis. Montana Sen. John Walsh´s thesis, which was written to earn a master´s degree from the U.S. Army War College, contains unattributed passages taken word-for-word from previously published papers. The Democrat also said he was dealing with the stress of a fellow veteran´s recent suicide. Walsh said he made an unintentional mistake and did not intend to plagiarize.

Texas Governor Rick Perry went on Hannity tonight to discuss the illegal immigrant crisis at the US southern border. Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

Since the beginning of Obamacare enrollment, critics have expressed concerns that some of the nearly 50,000 navigators, who are supposed to provide a nonpartisan service by helping people sign up for health coverage, would actually use their position to advance political agendas or to organize voters. As John Fund wrote last year, many of the organizations that received navigator grants have close ties to the Democratic party. Recently, the Connecticut health exchange decertified one of its Obamacare navigators on the grounds that she had done just that. She had been repeatedly warned about “using [her] position . . . to promote

It may also be the most truly American project in the Western Hemisphere. While the backers of Acquario Ceará are aiming to create a new design symbol for South America, it will be almost entirely a product of North America.

The face now of the pro-Russian separtists in Eastern Ukraine is 43-year-old Igor Strelkov. The Russian media fell in love with Strelkov this April, when his armed group took control of the town of Slavyansk, escalating the conflict from a war of nerves into an actual full-fledged war. And Strelkov has become a fixture in the Western media too ever since pro-Russian separatists shot down Malaysian Flight 17. Western journalists and commentators, from the New York Times to the State Department, glean facts from Strelkov’s page on the Russian social-media network “VKontakte.” That’s where the message about the downed Ukrainian

Many of the Democrats who tell the world from the bumpers of their hybrids that they’re “Ready for Hillary 2016,” regard Hillary Clinton as something of a rock star. She does, too. The former secretary of state expects to get $275,000 for a speech to a school, a charity or even a capitalist enterprise with more money than it needs. Her fee sometimes exceeds that of the likes of Paris Hilton, the heiress who’s famous for being famous and who got a cool quarter of a million not long ago for thrilling the guests with her presence at an A-list

From Christian colleges challenging ObamaCare´s contraception mandate to the Catholic bishops protesting gay marriage, Christians are among the most unyielding opponents of sexual liberation. Progressives working towards greater public acceptance and support of LGBT rights would no doubt like to see Christians with traditionalist views abandon their old-fashioned doctrines on these matters. Or just go away. Neither will happen. These Christians are bound to their idea of human sexuality because it is fundamentally inseparable from their understanding of God. Put another way: if they´re wrong about sex and gender, then they´re wrong at a very basic level about God, the bible, and

The Obama administration announced Tuesday in a court filing that it would change the way it imposes its contraception and abortifacient mandate on religious non-profits, such as Christian schools like Wheaton College and charities like the Little Sisters of the Poor. The administration claims it has already accommodated these non-profits, but religious leaders and scholars have argued the "accommodation" is nothing more than an accounting gimmick that still requires conscientious objectors to violate their religious and moral beliefs. The Supreme Court´s Hobby Lobby decision did not resolve whether or not the so-called accommodation was legal, and most observers expect that question to

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

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
