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.

No way will this pansy throwing duffer ever scratch anything but his own A**.

How accurate do you suspect his scorecard is?

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.

All the RINO and DemoCommie "amnesty" compromisers are looking not only stupid now, but they can be Schumer seen as a danger to America. That´s McLain Rubio worse than just plain stupid.
Yes, build up border controls for starters only.
What will really stop the flood is to turn off the welfare spigot
NO MORE WELFARE FOR ILLEGAL ALIENS. SHUT The DOOR.
Don´t even let them use our prisons. Put them in separate prison tent camps out on the desert, Sheriff Joe style, hard work and gruel.
Between government secret funds for illegals, to the Catholic Church, the Church offering Sanctuary itself, and one reckless
president, it´s an open invitation for ALL to flee for the border, get across, get on the protected species list ever contrived by evil government and Church in collusion.

The downstairs is flooded. FIRST THING, STOP THE LEAK.
and TURN OFF THE WATER SPIGOT that is still on.
We can´t just close up the border. We have to STOP WELFARE
that means food housing schools medical, all the privileges
only illegals HAVE, Stop it all. Watch the Church closely, turn off their access to government tax paid funds. Shut the whole racket DOWN. By the way, arrest the president.

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.

This isn´t an illegal immigration ...it´s an illegal invasion.

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.

Ypres, Belgium - I first started coming to the Last Post ceremony in this tiny town on the French border in the mid-1990s. There were maybe 200 people who would gather each night beneath the Menin Gate, the Reginald Blomfield-designed monument reminiscent of the Arc de Triomphe, that was dedicated in July 1927 to forever remember the almost 55,000 British and Commonwealth soldiers who died near here between 1914 to 1918 but have no known grave. "A soldier of the Great War, known unto God" is how the gravestones read in a dozen cemeteries nearby still maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves

The number of abortions in Texas decreased by about 13 percent statewide and 21 percent in the Lower Rio Grande Valley following the passage of strict abortion regulations that went into effect last November, according to a report that academic researchers released Wednesday. The study, by the Texas Policy Evaluation Project at the University of Texas, which is analyzing the effects of reproductive health-related laws passed during the last two legislative sessions, found that as the number of clinics that provide abortions declined, so did the number of abortions performed statewide. Researchers said the decline was not as large as

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.

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

Soon enough, Brazil will be able to boast the largest aquarium in South America. When it is completed in 2015, Acquario Ceará, a new public aquarium planned for the northeastern Brazilian city of Fortaleza, will easily be the world´s most recognizable aquarium—an architectural statement piece if there ever was one. 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 U.S. is designing, engineering, constructing, and even financing Acquario Ceará—a

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

Trey Gowdy (R-SC) would not let IRS Commissioner John Koskinen off the hook over his failure to bring acceptable answers to Congress about the supposed loss of former IRS official Lois Lerner’s emails. The South Carolina Republican warned the IRS commissioners, "Words have consequences," as he hammered Koskinen for trying to claim he did not pursue what happened to the emails because he did not want to interfere with the Inspector General investigation saying "people site ongoing IG investigations

President Obama told Democratic donors Wednesday night that most Americans don’t have time to think about the details of the Benghazi terrorist attack or the problems with Obamacare. Speaking at a fundraiser at the Los Angeles home of “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Scandal” creator Shonda Rhimes, the president took his usual shots at the Republican Party, suggesting its members are focused on the wrong issues and frequently “obfuscate and they bamboozle and sometimes don’t say what’s true.” And because people are not familiar with the intricacies of many public-policy issues, Republicans can get away with such obfuscation, he said. “The Republican

High-ranking U.S. officials said Wednesday that not only are Sunni radicals with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant “worse than al Qaeda,” but that the group has a message for the president: “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama.” Brett McGurk, the deputy assistant secretary of state, told lawmakers at a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing that ISIL may have “changed its name,” but that it’s still al Qaeda. (Snip) Elissa Slotkin, the acting principal deputy undersecretary of Defense for policy, added that ISIL also has its eye on the president, threatening “We’re coming for you, Barack Obama,” The Hill reported.

In scandal after scandal in the Obama administration, President Obama has said he didn’t know about the problems until he heard it on the news. But the president changed his tune about his supposed ignorance at a Democratic fundraiser near Seattle on Tuesday night. Mr. Obama told supporters that he doesn’t watch the news because, “Whatever they’re reporting about, usually I know.” That contrasts with the explanations that the president and his aides have given from scandals in the past few years ranging from long wait times and deaths at the VA, to the IRS targeting tea party groups, to the

Illinois Sen. Dick Durbin on Tuesday urged Walgreen Co. to reconsider a possible move of its headquarters to Switzerland to lower its U.S. tax bill. In a letter to Walgreen Chief Executive Gregory Wasson, Durbin said the company could face a backlash from its customers. “I believe you will find that your customers are deeply patriotic and will not support Walgreen’s decision to turn its back on the United States,” Durbin wrote. “Nearly all of your $2.5 billion in profits earned last year were from sales to U.S. taxpaying customers.” The senator ended his letter with a twist on Walgreen’s

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

Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Republican Party’s bookish former vice presidential nominee, is starting to look like a candidate for the presidency in 2016. In August, Ryan will publish a book with a distinctly campaign-themed title, The Way Forward. On Tuesday, the Federal Election Commission approved of a nationwide book tour sponsored by Ryan’s publisher and the Political Action Committee the Wisconsin congressman founded, Prosperity Action PAC. “The book will address “the state of the conservative movement in America today, discuss how it contrasts with liberal progressivism, and explain what must be done to save what Representative Ryan refers to as the

Colchester – Experts estimate there are nearly 300 adult loons living on Vermont´s lakes and ponds, up from just a couple dozen 30 years ago. On Saturday, more than 200 volunteers spread out across Vermont for the annual loon survey. The results of the survey are trickling in, but Eric Hanson of the Vermont Center for Ecostudies and the coordinator of the Vermont Loon Conservation Project, said there are many more birds now than just a few years ago. He said 15 years ago there were around 100 loons. In 1983, biologists counted only 29. "It is a decent, stable population. I'm hoping that actually things do start to level out.

Tuesday, President Obama visited the Dutch Embassy in Washington, D.C., and wrote in a condolence book for the victims of Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17, “We will not rest until we are certain that justice is done.” He then departed for a three-day fundraising trip to the West Coast. Obama’s pledge that “we will not rest until . . . ” may sound familiar to you. In fact, the pledge is so chronically overused, and issued so casually, that it no longer carries much meaning. Here’s a brief history: April 9, 2009: “We will not rest until we reach a day when not one

A lakefront mansion. Dueling movie producers. Super agents joining the fray. A drunken driving arrest. The possible hiring of private investigators. The divorce of Michael Moore has this normally sedate community northeast of Traverse City all atwitter. The filmmaker, 60, who split his time between a home here and one in New York, is leaving his wife of 22 years, Kathy Glynn. By reaching a settlement, Moore avoids a trial that could have aired dirty laundry common in high-proile breakups and impugned his long-hewn image as a common man by disclosing details of his comfortable life.

Chelsea Clinton’s pals, and mom Hillary Clinton, threw the former first daughter an intimate baby shower at a popular upscale Westchester eatery, a source tells Confidenti@l. The group celebrated on Sunday, July 13, at Crabtree’s Kittle House Inn in Chappaqua, near Bill and Hillary Clinton’s sprawling estate. The former POTUS and son-in-law Marc Mezvinsky even stopped by toward the end of the party, popping into the Carriage Room Atrium downstairs on the garden level to share in Chelsea’s special day. “He showed up when it was about to end and worked the room. He was upstairs talking to everyone too,”
