Obama AWOL as border crisis worsens
Washington Times, by Editorial

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 7/16/2014 5:02:13 AM

John McCain, an immigration hawk. Who knew? Mr. McCain, the highest-profile Republican of the U.S. Senate’s “Gang of Eight” that came up with amnesty as the solution to the immigration crisis — and it truly is a crisis — is finally taking a hard line against President Obama for his encouraging the tidal wave of illegal aliens swamping the southwestern border. “There has to be a halt to this,” Mr. McCain thundered Sunday on CNN. “That’s what we want, and the best way to do that is for planeloads of these young people to be returning to their country of origin

What we are witnessing is a man´s unbridled hubris writ large. Obama has a vision for this country and it is in direct opposition to the values and traditions upon which this country was founded.

Look to the chaos he has created to see his plan for this nation. We are hanging by a thread financially. Our culture is a cesspool driven by sex and violence in every shape and form. Our children and young people are being brainwashed by academics who revile this country. The economy is under attack and with it the family unit. The racial divide has had a monumental wedge driven into it by this president and his attorney general. The country is a paper tiger on the world stage because of Obama´s foreign policy.

He has never understood Americans. He does not understand who we are because he is not one of us. From birth he has been surrounded in a caccoon of anti-Americanism. He does not know or understand the depth of love we have for this country, he has no pride in all the good we have done for the world.

This fundamental transformation is exactly what he believes he was born to do. The border crisis more than any other created abomination of his is a real insight into who Obama is. He is an evil heartless man who will gladly use children to advance his agenda. He is not AWOL. He is completely engaged in this battle he purposefully created and he means to win it.

Ah, McCain, nothing more annoying than getting double-crossed by your fellow aisle-crossers. Amnesty looks like an issue that can be put to good use in un-electing border traitors on both sides of the aisle. It might also be the thing that can finally kill the restoration of the Clinton monarchy, if the Republicans have the brains to use it.

Doesn´t sound like there´s going to be much of a HALT to this any time soon. Just heard on the news that the gooberment has given $50 MILLION to some Baptist organization to buy a resort with 600 rooms to house the ILLEGAL children that we will have to pay for and pay for for the rest of their miserable lives and then some as they will breed like rabbits. I wonder if this will be the straw that breaks the camel´s back. Not only illegal children, but illegals from around the third world are using the open borders, along with the drug carriers.

If the damnable media would actually report the TRUTH about what is REALLY happening on the border, the entire country would be protesting. But no, we get soppy little stories about ´´the chilllldren´´ and how the cold-hearted Republicans want them all to die.

Who would have thought a skinny little nobody from who-knows-where could destroy this country in six years? He´s done it with the total compliance of his butt-kissing media.

I´m waiting for "The last straw" with the American people. What will be the tipping point when we say NO MAS.

Let´s face it, Obama has been AWOL from his job and on an extended vacation paid for by the taxpayers for five plus years. He doesn´t like the responsibility of the office and it shows. The word incompetent has now become synonymous with him. Even Democrats are facing the truth of his failed presidency
Have you noticed his body language lately? Now that the veneer has warn off to expose his flawed frail frame. His posture, his language, his attitude reek with contempt for the American people.
Now that He´s crossed the
Rubicon and doesn´t care to hide his true intent, I expect the days ahead to be filled with strife.

He must have accidently stepped on his pen and dropped his phone into a water hazard on the golf course.

In terms of actually getting things done, BO has had a complete fail as president. He talks about things a lot and occasionally others take action that he endorses and takes credit for.

Worst recovery from a recession. Worst rollout of a federal program, BOCare. Worst international scene in decades, including a murdered ambassador. Worst job situation for all his "core" groups; Blacks, youth, women, Hispanics. Worst energy program with almost universal failures of all the companies he has supported. Worst transparency, and most secretive, for an Administration.

BO has been AWOL throughout his presidency.

Obama knows that as the first black President that he will never be impeached. The Democrats in Congress will never allow that to happen as they need a big black vote to stay in power.

This mass migration of young illegal aliens was politically motivated from the get-go. It started as soon as Obama told the world that he would not deport young illegal aliens who claim they entered the USA before age 16 and are now up to 30 years of age. Without any basis in law, Obama granted hundreds of thousands of illegal aliens an immigration status valid for two years, social security cards, and indirectly, drivers licenses, so that they could find employment in the USA. That unlawful act by Obama was highly publicized all over the world and especially in Central America and Mexico. Young illegal aliens and their foreign parents in Central America took that to mean that if they could get to the US border, that Obama would allow them into the USA with an official permission slip, that they call a "permiso", and that is exactly what is now happening.

This is all highly political as the liberal Democrats are trying to get their massive amnesty passed into law, that would legalize up to 20 million illegal aliens and allow them to bring all their close foreign relatives into the USA, another 20 million or so poor and uneducated third world people the vast majority of who would be natural future Democrat voters in the years ahead.

I second everything # 19 wrote.
Barry has set fires domestically and globally and then he vanishes.
Arsonists usually return to watch the flames , but, Barry is too lazy or asleep or doped up to do even that.
BTW-Afghanistan is unraveling faster than Iraq .
Barry is clearly unspooling which should alarm everyone. Including the media and Democrats especially
since he was never emotionally and mentally stable in the first place.
The media, Democrats and blacks have to turn on Barry before there could be any possibility of righting this sinking ship.
This alien invasion may be the tipping point for some blacks and some Dems , however , the media will
cling to this guy until noon on
January 20, 2017.
And then they´ll write their exposes and tell all books.
The ideal situation would be for Democrat wise men to go to Barry and tell him to resign.
Unfortunately, there aren´t any and he would never agree.
The next two and a half years are going to be very dicey
as Valerie Jarrett makes executive decisions
while Barry is in the fetal position or the hot tub ( both probably with Reggie ) or talking to White House paintings.

If the current situation with the problems with the border continues at its current pace, by Jan. 2017 there will not be a U.S.A. left. This country will have denigrated to 3rd world status. And we will have "leaders" just like any other 3rd world country. And they will be installed for life. Elections? They will go the way of the dodo bird. We, as citizens, will no longer have any say in what the country does. And just because that we produce the most of everything in the country, those is command will be just like to Soviet Union was back in its heyday. We will be TOLD what to do and when to do it. If we don´t, we´ll be rounded up and sent to the "re-education" camps. Or worse, be killed. And the fact that we have private citizens that own more that 2 million guns via the 2nd Amendment, we don´t seem to have enough people with the courage to start another revolution and clean out the trash that occupies DC and replace them with someone and something that was originally intended. I fear for the future of this once great nation.

The governors of the affected states should take a page out of Barry´s playbook and use their phones and pens to do the job he refuses to do - namely send these invaders back to their home countries, and then they should send the bills for these actions to INS. Let´s see how loudly The Won screams and threatens to sue over his duties being usurped by others.

The man is a kid looking at all the toys in the White House and trying to play with them all, and breaking them.

Obama really is the maximum regret of all gaming scenarios used to determine outcomes of policy and national interest.

Greg Abbott launches first

AUSTIN — Greg Abbott’s campaign launched a new attack on Democratic rival Wendy Davis’ ethics Thursday, saying she voted on legislation as a state senator that personally benefited her business. A new 30-second TV ad airing statewide marks a political escalation by the Abbott campaign, which has largely ignored Davis in its TV ad campaign and instead focused on the Republican attorney general’s platform and personal story. While Davis has targeted Abbott relentlessly on TV, Abbott’s ads until now have been an effective contrast, signaling to his Republican base that he’s in good shape. In the ad, an announcer accuses Davis of

The show trial is underway and the guilty verdict is guaranteed, as a United Nations panel makes a pretense of investigating human rights violations in the 50-day war between Israel and Hamas. To his severe discredit, UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has sanctioned a proceeding whose transparent rigging would be at home in a totalitarian regime. Israel is, of course, the defendant going down the tubes. Hamas started the conflict by firing thousands of rockets indiscriminately into the Jewish state from heavily populated areas of Gaza, and prolonged the suffering by violating ceasefire after ceasefire that Israel honored. While each Hamas rocket was

Joseph R. Biden’s 2016 presidential ambitions already look like they have been swallowed whole by the Hillary Rodham Clinton juggernaut, but political analysts say the vice president still has a narrow path to victory — one that depends on either out-politicking the former first lady in crucial states such as Iowa or praying she makes a grave mistake. Mr. Biden and Mrs. Clinton both visited Iowa, home of the first caucuses in the presidential primary cycle, over the past week. Neither has declared a White House run in two years, but each seemed to be courting the Democratic foot soldiers necessary

Supporters of the Obama administration like to create the impression that there is no viable alternative to the Affordable Care Act — i.e., Obamacare. But that is demonstrably not true. Republican senators Richard Burr, Tom Coburn, and Orrin Hatch introduced a plan earlier this year that would cover just as many people with insurance as Obamacare at a fraction of the cost. Now we have confirmation, in the form of a new cost estimate, that a similarly constructed but slightly different proposal would also cost less, while covering nearly the same number of people. The plan, developed and promoted by the 2017

On Monday, Attorney General Eric Holder, Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson, and New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo sounded the alarm about the escalating danger of a terrorist attack on America by ISIS and other jihadists. Too bad the Obama administration lacks the resolve or sense of urgency to meet this danger head on. Worse, political correctness is hindering New York, a likely target, from tracking and stopping the jihadists in our midst. Holder announced “pilot programs” to “raise awareness,” bringing together religious leaders, community leaders, and law enforcement to build “community partnerships.” Sounds heartwarming. The White House will also hold a

Emails sent by liberal activists and obtained by The Hill reveal significant dissatisfaction with Hillary Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. The critical messages about the former first lady show that she has a long way to go to assuage skepticism from influential voices on the left. The Hill reviewed hundreds of emails from a progressive members only Google group called the “Gamechanger Salon,” a forum where nearly 1,500 activists, strategists and journalists debate issues and craft messaging campaigns. The group includes prominent Democrats, Sierra Club officials, journalists who work for The Huffington Post and The Nation magazine, senior

he New York Times on Wednesday carried a provocative front-page dispatch from Kentucky by Abby Goodnough, who’s been doing a superb job of covering the impact of the Affordable Care Act in the Bluegrass State as a window into the law’s import nationally. The piece captures the political dynamic in Kentucky, where Obamacare has slashed the rate of the uninsured from 20.4 percent to 11.9 percent, the second largest drop after Arkansas, but where this success is seemingly not redounding to the benefit of Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes, who is now lagging in the polls against Mitch McConnell.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

On Thursday, when White House Press Sec. Josh Earnest was asked how Americans who are asked to serve in what Gen. Martin Dempsey called a “combat advisory role” alongside indigenous forces would react if they were fired upon, Earnest replied with the obvious (via The Washington Times): President Obama expects U.S. troops to return fire if Islamic State militants

The Obama administration has “widened the loopholes” that Islamic State and other extremist fighters could use to enter the United States, a leading union of immigration officials says. In a statement obtained by National Review Online, the U.S. National Citizenship and Immigration Services Council, a union representing 12,000 federal immigration agents, sounded the alarm that not only could jihadists “slip across our porous southern border,” but that fighters could also “exploit our loose and lax visa policies to gain entry to the United States.” USCIS cites two main issues: a dearth of resources for Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents for enforcement and

First Lady Michelle Obama proudly defended her husband’s record at a Washington, D.C. fundraiser, reminding the attendants how far the country had come since the Obamas entered the White House. “Just think about how different our country looks to children growing up today,” she said. “Think about how our kids take for granted that a black person or a woman can be President of the United States.” She also praised President Obama for changing history on gay marriage and the Supreme Court. “They take it for granted that for the first time in history, there are three brilliant women serving

Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, one of the masterminds behind Obamacare, has now explained that he wishes to die at age 75. In an article in The Atlantic, Emanuel writes, “Seventy-five. That’s how long I want to live: 75 years.” He explains that his daughters disagree; so do his brothers and his friends. But, he says, “I am sure of my position…here is a simple truth that many of us seem to resist: living too long is also a loss. It renders many of us, if not disabled, then faltering and declining, a state that may not be worse than death but

Flashes of disagreement over how to fight the Islamic State are mounting between President Obama and U.S. military leaders, the latest sign of strain in what often has been an awkward and uneasy relationship. Even as the administration has received congressional backing for its strategy, with the Senate voting Thursday to approve a plan to arm and train Syrian rebels, a series of military leaders have criticized the president’s approach against the Islamic State militant group. Retired Marine Gen. James Mattis, who served under Obama until last year, became the latest high-profile skeptic on Thursday, telling the House Intelligence Committee

Congress is living in an "evidence-free zone" as it debates issues of equal pay and family-friendly work policies, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton said Thursday. "Unfortunately, reality is not always the context in which these decisions are made. The Congress increasingly -- despite the best efforts of my friends and others -- is living in an evidence-free zone," she said during a roundtable discussion at the Center for American Progress focused on women´s issues. "What the reality is, in the lives of Americans is so far from the minds of too many who don´t place the highest priority" on

Protesters threatened continued rioting and violence if Officer Wilson is let off.

Devastating. That´s really the only way to describe Politico´s piece on DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz. (I hereby nominate her for Worst Week in Washington.) (Editor´s note: Three words -- Joseph. Robinette. Biden.) Based on interviews with DNC staffers -- both former and current -- the piece described Wasserman Schultz as something of a modern-day Tracy Flick: over-eager, disloyal and not shy about promoting her ambitions. It would be fair to say that she sounds like, well, a lot like other politicians. And this would be accurate. But the wholesale bashing of Wasserman Schultz at every level of the party -- White House,

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee, a Senior Member of the House Homeland Security Committee and House Judiciary Committee and Ranking Member of the Border and Maritime Subcommittee.(snip) The Congresswoman released the following statement: “The bloodshed at the hands of ISIL has been enormous. Religious minorities have been persecuted. American and British citizens have been beheaded. There is a further threat of other innocent human beings to be beheaded or killed in some way. It is also clear that a war including the United States is not the answer. I abhor the violence of war when diplomacy can be used.
