Obama: ´I ran for President
to fight for Americans´

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm

President Obama's weekly remarks
Hi, everybody. This week, I spent some time in Colorado and Texas, talking with people about what’s going on in their lives. One was Elizabeth Cooper, a college junior this fall. She wrote to tell me something I hear often: how hard it is for middle-class families like hers to afford college. And she shared something I know many of you feel when you wonder what’s going on in Washington. She said she feels “not significant enough to be addressed, not poor enough for people to worry [about], and not rich enough to be cared about.” I ran for President to fight for Americans just like Elizabeth — people who work hard, do everything right,

There he goes again!

HE is the reason so much is out of whack, while he claims things couldn´t be better!

How many of my fellow L.dotters are better off than they were this time even 6 months ago?

This is a very dillusional man. You can make statistics say just about anything if you don´t take into account everything.

The biggest lie is that he ran for president to save us hard-working people. Nothing could be further from the truth.

Nothing is ever his fault--he is always "fighting for us"... I just wish he would leave me alone and quit "helping".

I think he ran so he could travel free and get away from his cranky wife and the mother in law from hell. Otherwise he just lets ValJar run and screw up the country.

Oh yes, he gets free junk food.

I have a suggestion for Elizabeth,“not significant enough to be addressed, not poor enough for people to worry [about], and not rich enough to be cared about.” She needs to get some self respect, and get to work. She should be thanking God she´s not poor enough for people to worry about, start caring about the people around her instead of worrying about who´s caring for her, and start asking what she can do for her country instead of wondering what hand-out she qualifies for. Geesh.

I don´t need to list all this and much, much more, we all know what his failings are and what he´s done and is doing to our country.

Coward (noun): a person who hides behind women and children instead of fighting for himself.
The Zero in the Oval Office is using human chains. That was bad when the Taliban did it, but good when he does it.
Let him come out from behind his teleprompter and face an audience which has not been scripted with allowed questions.
Put him under oath.
He doesn´t even try to conceal his lies.
He just keeps piling them up.

Well Elizabeth Cooper perhaps when you are a little older or actually did deep into our constitution you will find out that your government is what has caused the affordability of higher education. Get government out of education and watch costs return to an affordable cost for everyone who wants to attend college. Government is the problem, not the solution.

Militarizing local police

One of the more useless fall-outs of the Obama Era -- in addition to him fomenting the cancerous distrust of vital national institutions and offices -- is the trumped-up call for national debates and discussions about virtually anything controversial. [Snip] The latest national debate concerns the so-called militarization of local police forces, growing out of the intense media scrutiny of one local department in Ferguson, Missouri. Well, we´re here to make it a debate. It´s a great idea to have state and local police departments armed way beyond the firepower of any conceivable opponent.

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. Nearly six years after the worst financial crisis of our lifetimes, our businesses have added nearly 10 million new jobs over the past 53 months. [Snip] We should be doing everything we can to accelerate this progress, not stall it. One place to start is by supporting something called the U.S. Export-Import Bank. Its sole mission is to create American jobs. That’s it. It helps many American entrepreneurs take that next step and take their small business global. But next month, its charter will expire — unless Members of Congress do their job.

President Obama´s weekly remarks Hi, everybody. Over the next couple weeks, schools all across the country will be opening their doors. Students will suit up for fall sports, marching band and the school play; moms and dads will snap those first-day-of-school pictures — and that includes me and Michelle. And so today, I want to talk directly with students and parents about one of the most important things any of you can do this year — and that’s to begin preparing yourself for an education beyond high school.

   

 



 
Obama lifts ban on Libyans attending flight

Investor´s Business Daily, by Andrew Malcolm    Original Article

Remember the aftermath of 9/11 when investigators made the chilling discovery that American flight instructors had unwittingly taught the Arab hijackers how to fly jumbo jets like the ones they plowed into the World Trade Center and Pentagon, killing some 3,000 innocents? Turns out, President Reagan worried about terrorist hijackers using airplanes as weapons way back in 1983. He banned Libyans from taking flight lessons or nuclear studies in the United States. Now, believe it or not, President Obama is lifting that ban because, aides say, post-Gaddafi Libya and its relations with the United States are "normalized."

There is, as you may have heard, a growing online library of ISIS videos and photos, proudly portraying the most vividly graphic images of terrorists acts against other humans during its ongoing march across Iraq. We do not recommend seeking out these profane boasts for they will forever be seared into your minds-eye. [Snip] So, it was with some pride that many of us heard President Obama the other day say: “When you have a unique circumstance in which genocide is threatened, and a country is willing to have us in there, you have a strong international consensus that these

Luring Hillary Clinton into his Cabinet as secretary of State for the entire first term was one of those rare political deals that both sides won. Clinton got an executive position and foreign affairs exposure, which her resume sorely lacked. And Obama plopped his bitter Democrat primary rival into a non-political spot where she couldn´t publicly second-guess him or his administration. But that was then. This is now.

When President George W. Bush ordered a U.S. troop surge into Iraq in 2007, Sen. B. Obama was adamantly opposed. In fact, he said the surge would only worsen sectarian strife. From the first gleam in his eye of an Oval Office, Obama ran against any war in Iraq. [Snip] Obama is, of course, infamous for his convenient memory and prediction capabilities. If you like that president, you can keep that president. But what did Obama say about U.S. troops in Iraq, when did he say it? And Joe Biden and others. Are they consistent?

President Obama’s weekly remarks. This week, I authorized two operations in Iraq. First, I directed our military to take action to protect our American diplomats and military advisors serving in the city of Erbil. In recent days, terrorist forces neared the city. [Snip] We have Americans serving across Iraq, including our embassy in Baghdad, and we’ll do whatever is needed to protect our people. Second, we’ve begun a humanitarian effort to help those Iraqi civilians trapped on that mountain. The terrorists that have taken over parts of Iraq have been especially brutal to religious minorities.

President Obama has a habit of issuing formal statements of sadness upon deaths in the news. Usually they begin "Michelle and I were saddened..." And they include the words "our hearts and prayers go out to the families." Obama does it somewhat more than most modern presidents, especially if the dead person is an African leader. [Snip] This week, Maj. Gen. Harold Greene became the highest-ranking U.S. military officer to die in the Afghan war. He was assassinated and a dozen others wounded at a training camp near Kabul by a man in an Afghan army uniform, the first American general to die in a combat zone since the Vietnam

As planned, President Obama, his minions and the largely-complicit D.C. political media are using the absence of Congress to build the anticipatory drumbeat about what exactly the chief executive intends to do by himself over the boiling issue of illegal immigrants. [Snip] Aides say Obama will move at "the end of summer," an intentionally vague time-frame. Our guess is shortly after Labor Day when he can focus public attention on his moves as the Nov. 4 midterm elections approach. Narcissist or not, every president wants to control the media narrative. This is especially so for disastrous presidencies like Obama´s.

Sometimes a round of golf is just a round of golf. And sometimes it reveals the ­essence of a man. President Obama’s decision to hit the links and yuk it up with pals immediately after speaking about the beheading of James ­Foley was no ordinary mistake. Nor was it a simple gaffe. The decision continues to cause an uproar because, like an X-ray, there is no escaping the image. It shows there is no there there. With even his media praetorian guard appalled, the golf outing is sparking a wider understanding that Obama is hollow, empty of the routine qualities Americans expect from

At last, we know the reason why comedy writers don’t make fun of President Obama much. It turns out the man is completely unmockable. We learn this from Jim Downey, the longtime “Saturday Night Live” specialist in political japery. “If I had to describe Obama as a comedy project, I would say, ‘Degree of difficulty, 10 point 10,’” the writer says in the expanded new edition of the “SNL” oral history book, “Live from New York.” “It’s like being a rock climber looking up at a thousand-foot-high face of solid obsidian, polished and oiled,” Downey says. “There’s not a single thing to grab

The chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff has said that he would not recommend U.S. military airstrikes against Islamic State militants in Syria until he determines that they have become a direct threat to the U.S. Gen. Martin Dempsey, speaking to reporters on board a military plane traveling to Afghanistan, said Sunday that he believes the Sunni insurgent group formerly known as ISIS is more of a regional threat and is not currently plotting or planning attacks against the U.S. or Europe. ISIS has repeatedly made threats to attack the U.S. through social and conventional media. Earlier this month, in a

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.

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!

America has a deficit of workers. Willing workers. Capable workers. Skilled, or at least semi-skilled workers, who can do a job and do it well. There are at least one million jobs that go begging day after day if only employers could find workers to fill them. This probably seems hard-to-believe. After all, how can America have a worker shortage when we have about 18 million Americans who are unemployed or underemployed? When the real unemployment rate is 12 percent? (Snip) But there are also millions of unemployed Americans who don’t have the skill sets to match what employers are in need
