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

No promise of a cushy plane ride. Container ships get them back just the same.

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.

I´ll say this, I would rather he be on the golf course of choice and vacationing than to have him dithering and dabbling in the White House business.

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.

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down

Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article

ATLANTA — Texas, America’s second-most populous state behind California, saw 13 of its last abortion clinics turn away women on Friday, after a federal appeals court upheld a law that practically guarantees that only a handful of clinics will remain open in the state. The strictest-of-its-kind Texas law requires abortion providers to build hospital-grade facilities and obtain sometimes impossible-to-get hospital admitting privileges. After signed into law last year by Gov. Rick Perry (R), the law forced most of the 41 clinics operating to close. Thursday’s ruling wiped out a brief victory this summer for abortion rights proponents,

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t: Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law; Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated; Cancel visas

With Ebola making its way to the United States, people are rushing to find more information on the deadly disease. The Centers for Disease Control released a new chart on how contagious Ebola is compared to other diseases. The results may surprise you, according to IJReview. What you’re seeing is an evaluation of how contagious the Ebola virus actually is compared to previous epidemics, namely: Hepatitis C, HIV, SARS, Mumps, and Measles. As Michaeleen Doucleff reported, these little icons of pink and red people reflect the disease’s relative R0 or R(nought) scores. The red person is the disease carrier, and the pink people

Should we be worried about Ebola? That’s the question on the minds of many Americans given the first documented case on U.S. soil this week. And now there is a second possible case, someone having contact with Thomas Duncan, the first U.S. case of Ebola. Thomas Frieden, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reassures us, “I have no doubt that we’ll stop this in its tracks in the U.S.” President Obama also told us two weeks ago that “the chances of an Ebola outbreak here in the United States are extremely low.” Tell that to the 100 Texans who

Commencement speeches can be amusing, inspiring or, in the worst (some would say even the best) case, a bit dull. Schools tend to choose corporate CEOs, politicians and celebrities to send off the graduating class with a speech meant to give graduates a glimpse of what they can achieve if they work hard in the years that lie before them. Goddard College, a small liberal arts school in Plainfield, Vt., wanted a different kind of speaker. The graduating class chose a cop killer. A video recording was arranged so that Mumia Abu-Jamal could speak to the students from Mahanoy State Correctional

The U.S. economy added 248,000 jobs in September, and the unemployment rate dropped to 5.9 percent. But the labor force participation rate continued to fall, average hourly earnings seem frozen, and over 13 percent of workers are either out of work, involuntarily working part time or too discouraged to keep hunting for jobs, and 20 percent of teenagers are out of work. In short, two cheers for the latest report, but hold the champagne. Sales of new homes rose 18 percent in August from July, but sales of previously owned homes, 90 percent of all sales, fell 1.8 percent, and

It’s called dereliction of duty when one knowingly dismisses the faithful execution of his or her prescribed duties in fulfilling their responsibility. I said so Monday evening with Greta von Susteren, and will continue to do so. And if anything represents “high crimes and misdemeanors” it’s the dereliction of duty that has resulted in the deaths of Americans – by beheadings. Furthermore, it is a dereliction of duty that has placed the national security of the United States of America at risk.

In a letter to Gov.

Despite the numerous indications that Yisrael was inspired to choose his manner of murder and to carry it out by his immersion in Islam, authorities profess to be puzzled as to why he did it, or at least certain that his actions had nothing to do with that most misunderstood of religions, Islam.

In the first chapter that addresses the encounter, Dunham describes the "ill-fated evening of lovemaking" as awkward and hollow.

Deadly, irrational, and determined, the intruder snuck across a weakened perimeter. Eluding capture, the intruder was detained only after missteps and close calls. The spin began soon after the threat was isolated. Information was selectively leaked. Half-truths and untruths were uttered.

President Obama was at Northwestern University on Thursday to deliver an economic speech that, he and his team hoped, would lay out the case for why the public is better off today than they were six years ago -- even if they didn´t feel it in their everday lives. Instead, Obama just gave every Republican ad-maker in the country more fodder for negative ads linking Democratic candidates to him. Here are the four sentences that will draw all of the attention (they come more than two thirds of the way through the speech): "I am not on the ballot this

A recent fight between Rosie O´Donnell and Whoopi Goldberg has producers at The View looking to add a cool-down room for the ladies. After being cut off by Goldberg during an episode last week so the show could go to commercial, O´Donnell began to express how upset she was and, after being told repeatedly by Goldberg it was not the right time to have that discussion, eventually got cursed out by the Oscar winner. Goldberg told O´Donnell, ´F*** it, I told you to leave it alone and you just don´t want to listen. If you want to go there Rosie,

A presidential defeat isn’t an easy thing to bounce back from. And Mitt Romney did it twice. So it was understandable that after he lost the presidential race in 2012, he was adamant about closing the door to the possibility of a third campaign. But recently, speculation is whirling that Romney may not be so adamant anymore. When asked if he was running in a New York Times interview published earlier this week, Romney said : “I have nothing to add to the story. We’ve got a lot of people looking at the race,” he said. “We’ll see what happens.” That response, which

Meghan McCain joined the dog pile on the Secret Service this week, saying she’s had “nothing but horrible experiences" with the agency and likening the agents to “glorified mall cops.” The 29-year-old author and television personality, who is also the daughter of former GOP presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), opened up on Pivot’s “TakePart Live” about some of her interactions with the Secret Service. "I have nothing but horrible experiences with the Secret Service,” McCain said. “One of my friends called them glorified mall cops and I don´t think that´s terribly far off. I found them cliquey. I hated

WASHINGTON — Representative Elijah E. Cummings of Maryland was at the grocery store the other day when he ran into an elderly black woman who expressed growing concern about President Obama’s safety. Why, she asked, wasn’t he being better protected by his Secret Service agents? The furor that led to this week’s resignation of the director of the Secret Service resonated deeply among blacks, outraged that those supposed to be guarding the first black president were somehow falling down on the job — and suspicious even without evidence that it may be deliberate. “It is something that is widespread in

Go to a grocery store in California and buy all the milk, eggs and vegetables you want. But there’s one thing you won’t find at the checkout line, beginning July 1, 2015: Plastic bags to carry your stuff home. Gov. Jerry Brown (D) on Tuesday signed into law a ban on single-use plastic bags, making California the first state to prohibit stores from using the ubiquitous carry-alls. Shoppers will be charged 10 cents for every paper bag and heavy-duty plastic bag they use. “This bill is a step in the right direction,” Brown said in a press release announcing his approval. “It

The hawkish Republican Sen. Lindsey Graham of South Carolina says he is thinking about running for president in 2016. In an interview with Stephen Hayes of the Weekly Standard, the senator, running for re-election to the Senate this year, said: “If I get through my general election, if nobody steps up in the presidential mix, if nobody’s out there talking — me and McCain have been talking — I may just jump in to get to make these arguments,” Graham said. Graham, 59, also dismissed Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, 43, as a presidential candidate, saying he is too young. “He’s a good

Speaking at a Tragedy Assistance Program for Survivors event last night, Hillary Clinton decided to talk about Alexis de Tocqueville. The problem? She got it wrong -- by about a hundred years. "There´s a wonderful phrase that was first used by Alexis de Tocqueville, who came to the United States in the very early 1930s and traveled around our country," said Hillary Clinton, a probable 2016 presidential candidate. "And he was so amazed at how Americans organized themselves -- you know, coming from aristocratic Europe, which was totally top-down and hierarchical -- he couldn´t believe how many of us were joiners.
