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.

While Joe Biden was exhorting Detroiters to “take back America,” presumably from Barack Obama and himself, the president also expounded on the meaning of Labor Day. His themes were tiresomely familiar–we are the good guys, Republicans are the bad guys–but one interesting feature was his reference to “immigration rights.” This passage laid the groundwork: When unions and CEOs, when law enforcement and the evangelical community, when folks who usually don’t agree on anything agree that we should be fixing our broken immigration system, but the Republicans in the House of Representatives have been sitting on a bill for more than a

Only four hours west of Washington, there is a town where cell phones and wireless Internet are outlawed. Commercial radios are banned, and microwaves aren´t welcome either. Green Bank might sound like a Luddite´s dreamscape, but the West Virginia hamlet´s self-imposed blackout is being done all in the name of science: Green Bank is home to the world´s largest radio telescope, a 100-meters-in-diameter dish that is the crown jewel of the National Radio Astronomy Observatory. By measuring radio waves emitted from objects in space, the Robert C. Byrd Green Bank Telescope can go where optical telescopes can´t. It lets scientists "see" parts

Twoo online fundraising pages that raised more than $400,000 for the police officer who killed an unarmed black man in Ferguson, Mo., were shut down this weekend so tax lawyers could decide how best to handle the money, an official told the Los Angeles Times. Mystery has surrounded the pages on the crowdsourced fundraising site GoFundMe since Saturday, when both were suspended by their creators without an explanatory note to donors. And some mystery persisted Monday night. "Support Officer Darren Wilson" and "Support Officer Wilson" -- two separate pages with similar names -- raised $235,750 and $197,620, respectively, for the Ferguson police

There’s chatter, and there’s chatter, and only a trained intelligence ear can tell the difference. The trained ears are trying now to determine what to make of the chatter about a new attack on the United States, here or abroad and perhaps coordinated by the Islamic State (usually called ISIS). If there’s anything to the chatter (and sometimes there is), we may soon be treated to what happens when Barack Obama employs his famous tactic of “leading from behind.” We have to call it a tactic and not a strategy, since the president says he doesn’t have a strategy.

Late last month, as the Rev.

The elusive ´It factor´

Like it or not, this truism is very true: Being president in the modern era requires a certain "It Factor." You don´t need star power to make it to the U.S. Senate, or to rise in its leadership. (Looking at you, Senators Reid and McConnell.) You don´t need an almost celebrity-like sexiness to succeed in the House. (Who among us would describe Steny Hoyer or Steve Scalise in such terms?) But when we´re talking about the presidency, it´s not enough these days to be a highly intelligent lawmaker with a history of policy expertise and success. You´ve got to have charisma.

Washington - President Barack Obama formally notified the U.S. Congress on Monday that he had authorized air strikes and humanitarian airdrops over the weekend in the Iraqi Shi’ite town of Amerli where Islamic State militants had trapped the civilian population. Iraqi security forces backed by Shi´ite militias on Sunday broke the two-month siege of Amerli and entered the northern town after the U.S. military carried out air strikes on militant positions and delivered emergency supplies to residents there. Obama said in a letter to congressional leaders he was notifying Congress of his decision under the long-standing War Powers Resolution,

But I never thought that, among its excuses, would be praise for the policies of President Bush and Vice President Cheney. Yet, as Daniel Halper reports, President Obama used just that excuse at a fundraiser in Rhode Island last night. Obama told Democrat fat cats that despite what “seems like. . .just wave after wave of upheaval, most of it surrounding the

On TV, incompetence is funny, sometimes hilarious. Jackie Gleason made a career of it on the old “Honeymooners” show; Tom Haverford is absurdly incapable on “Parks and Recreation”; and Michael Scott brought the Peter Principle to new heights in “The Office.” But in real life, incompetence can be dangerous, even life-threatening (think a real-life Homer Simpson actually in charge of safety at a nuclear power plant). That’s where America finds itself nearly six years into the presidency of Barack Obama. There’s no question Mr. Obama has all but checked out.

Because I am a black conservative, someone wrote asking me this great question. “What is it that compels some black men and women to cling to, and follow people like Sharpton, Jackson, Wright, Obama, Spike Lee, Black Panthers, Holder, etc.?” I have pondered the same question. Some black folks embrace victim status because it provides cover for their laziness and irresponsible lifestyles. Black Judases preach a false, evil gospel of victimhood-ism for profit. Some blacks are racist, pure and simple. I believe that a majority of black Americans simply have not been exposed to unfiltered conservatism – to blacks articulating how blessed they

The federal government is still seeking answers as to why the majority of lesbians are obese and U.S. taxpayers are footing the bill, which now totals $2.87 million. The National Institutes of Health (NIH) study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014. The project seeks to determine why “nearly three-quarters of adult lesbians overweight or obese,” and why gay males are not. In just two years the project’s budget has nearly doubled, growing from $1.5 million to nearly $3 million today, despite fears that sequestration could jeopardize the project and other NIH funding. The study, which

I guess he really was multitasking out on the golf course. The President’s team has been hard at work behind the scenes, coming up with a strategy … well, maybe we should say plan, to address the nation’s many challenges. Spurred by President Obama’s climate action plan, the Department of Energy is pumping out new standards for refrigerators, dishwashers, air conditioners, ceiling fans, furnaces, boilers, water heaters, lamps and many more appliances. The administration says the standards will not only help the planet but also stimulate the economy by saving consumers money on their energy bills that they can spend elsewhere. After what

A federal study to determine why 75 percent of lesbian women are obese and gay men are not has totaled nearly $3 million. The National Institutes of Health study is now in its fourth year, receiving an additional $670,567 for fiscal year 2014, for a total cost of $2.87 million, the Washington Free Beacon reported. Researchers at Brigham and Women’s Hospital have come to several conclusions since studying “the striking interplay of gender and sexual orientation in obesity disparities,” which is slated to last until 2016. They have determined that gay and bisexual males had a “greater desire for toned muscles” than straight men, lesbians have lower

Nude photos of Oscar-winning actress Jennifer Lawrence, as well as those purportedly showing other top Hollywood stars, were posted online in an apparent massive hacking leak. An anonymous hacker reportedly gained access to private photos on the Hunger Games actress’s mobile phone, and those of 100 others, via Apple’s online storage system iCloud. The 60-odd pictures of Lawrence in varying stages of undress were then posted on the bulletin board website 4chan. More than 100 A-list celebrities are alleged to have been targeted, including reality TV star Kim Kardashian, singer Rihanna, models Candice Swanepoel, Cara Delevingne and Kelly Brook, and

I just want a good deal for the workers." The president also discussed his "vision for an economy," where workers have a fair chance, retirement benefits, family leave and pay equality for woman.

Between 1970 and 1990, the population of Philadelphia shrank by a quarter, dropping from 1.95 to 1.59 million. Like many American cities, it seemed caught in a downward spiral. Since then – like many American cities – Philadelphia has stabilized. The population now appears to have bottomed out at the millennium, and has been regaining residents over the past decade. But as it rebounds, Philly is becoming a different kind of city. In the two most recent decades, which comprise the bounce of the city’s population curve, owner-occupied housing dropped even more steeply than in the ’70s and ’80s. Between 2000 and

WASHINGTON — The current Congress is on track to be the worst ever at passing laws since modern record-keeping began, with three of its lawmakers failing to introduce a single bill, The Post has learned. The divided House and Senate have managed to pass just 163 laws that garnered President Obama’s signature since the two-year term began in January 2013. At this rate, Congress will have no problem beating the previous record set during the 2011-2013 session in which 284 laws were passed. That was down from 385 laws passed in the 2009-2011 session.
