Two Huge Int’l Crises Can’t Alter
Busy Schedule of Fundraiser-in-Chief

Mediaite, by Joe Concha

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/17/2014 6:12:30 PM

Jon Stewart was exactly right during the open of his Monday show this week: The world really has gone mad. (Snip) President Obama has faced the same kind of criticism in regards to his reaction to big events as well. But in Mr. Obama’s case, there’s an unsettling and dumbfounding pattern that has clearly emerged: The need to attend fundraisers as important events–the kind of events that call for the President to return to the White House Situation Room for monitoring and assessment of said events while being debriefed by military brass and talking with our allies, including Israel–unfold in real time. But as we’re seeing here in

Comments:
0bama does need to be impeached and removed from office. At the very least, he should be "checked" by Congress & federal judges in the lame duck days of his pResidency for his illegal actions and disreguard of our Constitution.

FTA: But even worse, by not postponing his fundraisers on a day where the world really has gone mad, he now — amazingly — looks like he just doesn’t give a damn.

Severe understatement. 0bama reeks of doesn´t give a damn about We The People.

Bozo´s "Fundraising" is to benefit one party. Not the United States. Why do no news outlets mention that directly?

FTA: But to do 393 fundraisers — that’s the number reported in Wednesday’s Washington Post — in six years is not only ridiculous, it’s almost cheesy.

I didn´t realize the number was that high. That is a mind boggling number. And what is worse, we have paid for his travel to each and every one of those DEMOCRAT fundraisers.

Why is this news? He´s been doing this for 5 years now. Almost 400 fundraisers, while the country and the world circle the drain. Sorry, but this is not new nor is it ´news´. The only news part is that people are actually beginning to wake up and take notice of this charlatan occupying the most important office in the world.

Whenever there´s a crisis ,
Barry goes to a fundraiser and a BBQ joint.
FTA-
" This isn’t the first time we’ve seen this unexplainable, embarrassing reaction from the president to events like this.
Mr. Obama flew to Las Vegas the morning after the Benghazi terror attack.
Did another fundraiser as Russia first invaded Crimea. Followed suit after the VA Scandal exploded
by doing two more fundraisers in Chicago.
And just last week,
he wouldn’t visit the border while in Texas during that “humanitarian crisis” (his words) in favor of doing two more fundraisers in the same state…
a move even some fellow Democrats and liberal media were left scratching their heads over."
Plus, slurping down greasy food at Franklin Barbecue in Texas.
Today , amidst the world conflagration,
Barry went to
the Charcoal Pit in Delaware ,
where he sucked down a milkshake and announced,
in broken English
" Me and Joe, we share shakes all the time ".
I have no idea...
On April 23 , 2010 when the Gulf Oil spill had just occurred , the oil rig workers were missing and oil was polluting the Gulf,
Barry and Michelle ignored the crisis and decamped to Asheville , NC for a long weekend of golf, relaxation and spa treatments at the exclusive Grove Park Inn.
Barry dined at 12 Bones Smokehouse while the Gulf crisis worsened.
Until Brian Williams, Diane Sawyer and Scott Pelley decide to get some integrity and stop covering for Barry,
he will continue to frolic while the world burns.

I am honestly very surprised there (supposedly) were only 393 fundraisers in 6 years. How can that be, when seemingly every other day he is attending 2 or 3? Concha is taking the word of the Washington Post rather than doing any investigation of his own.

Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) responded to Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid’s (D-NV) characterization of the U.S.-Mexico border as “secure” by telling his colleague to come take a look for himself. “President Obama and Harry Reid both engage debates divorced from the facts and divorced from the reality,” Cruz said on Fox News Sunday. “Harry Reid lives in the Ritz-Carlton in Washington, D.C., and I’m sure from his perspective the border seems secure. I would invite Harry Reid to come with me down Texas and see the border.” “I’ll tell you who is holding these kids ransom,” Cruz continued, Cruz continued, “Harry Reid and the

Gaza City - Hundreds of Palestinians fled in panic into Gaza City on Sunday as Israeli troops focused their firepower on the nearby town of Shaja´ia. The shelling and bombing killed at least 60 people and wounded 300, according to the Gaza Health Ministry. In previous days, Israel warned residents to flee, through calls, text messages and dropping fliers that said "it is the intention of the IDF to carry out aerial strikes against terror sites and operatives" in the area. (Snip) But the IDF said Hamas "ordered them to stay" and "put them in the line of fire." More than 410 people in Gaza have died in the fighting between Israel and Hamas,

In an interview with the BBC on Sunday, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu had a special message for Gaza residents: Get rid of Hamas before they get you killed. “We are shooting only at the sites where terrorists are shooting at us,” Netanyahu said. “We have asked the civilian population to leave, but Hamas is making them stay, turning them into human shields.” As Netanyahu spoke in the interview, Hamas was in the midst of violating yet another “humanitarian” cease-fire that the terror group had requested. Via the Red Cross, Hamas asked for the cease-fire to allow it remove dead bodies from the Shejiaya neighborhood in Gaza,

Denver - Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin urged the grassroots Saturday to support her call for the impeachment of President Obama, imploring conservatives to push the idea with Congress. “There’s only one remedy for a president who commits high crimes and misdemeanors, and it’s impeachment,” said Ms. Palin. “It’s the I word. You don’t need some fancy law degree hanging on your wall there to know laws are not being enforced today. Illegal immigrants all over the world also know that.” The former Republican vice-presidential candidate spoke to a crowd here at the Western Conservative Summit, sponsored by the

Washington - Shortly after the video begins, a man in his 20s dressed in camouflage appears on screen and begins a recruitment speech. His pitch is fairly straightforward: Come join the fight — you don’t need to be a radical to be a jihadi. (Snip) But while the young man in the video, Andre Poulin, cast himself as just a typical Canadian, the authorities there say he lived a far different life from the one he described. In his late teens and early 20s, according to a Canadian prosecutor, Mr. Poulin learned how to build explosives online and considered becoming an anarchist or a Communist, before converting to Islam.

Hrabove, Ukraine — A muted sun baked golden fields of hay and sunflowers. Bloated and mangled bodies gave off a fetid stench. (Snip) Two days after MH17 was shot down over east Ukraine — turning a simmering separatist conflict into a crisis of global proportions — the crash site remains a hideous mess that will make it harder for investigators to establish what happened — and for relatives to get peace. As Ukraine, Russia, and Moscow-backed rebels trade barbs over which side fired the missile that brought the Boeing 777 jet down, the bodies of the 298 passengers and crew killed instantaneously were still strewn across a field,

Miami - A jury in northwest Florida awarded a staggering $23 billion judgment late Friday against the country’s second-largest tobacco company for causing the death of a chain smoker who died of lung cancer at the age of 36. Michael Johnson Sr. died in 1996 after smoking for more than 20 years. In 2006, his widow, Cynthia Robinson, of Pensacola, sued the R. J. Reynolds Company, the maker of the Kool brand cigarettes her husband had smoked, arguing that the company had deliberately concealed the health hazards its product caused. The four-week trial ended Wednesday. The jury deliberated for 18 hours over two days,

Kiev - Ukraine intelligence officials said they knew three days before the downing of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17 that rebels in the east of the country possessed sophisticated air-defense systems capable of felling a jetliner at altitudes in excess of where the Boeing 777 was flying. The disclosure deepens the mystery of why Ukrainian aviation officials failed to entirely close off the airspace in the Donetsk region, where the jet was flying went it was shot down, killing all 298 people on board.

Hundreds of protests are taking place across United States this weekend in opposition to the surge of immigrants illegally crossing the country’s southern border and proposed immigration reform that organizers say gives amnesty to those already living illegal in the United States. Organizers say 321 protests will take place over the next two days -- from state capitals to highway overpasses to Mexican consulates. The protests have been sparked by the thousands of Central American immigrants who in the past few weeks have entered the United States illegally in hopes of staying. “We know that 12,000 people expected to attend nearly 300

Dear Reader (including the president of the United States whenever he gets to this after dealing with many important fundraisers), If you’ve been reading my stuff over the years, you’ll find a number of common themes (“And recycled jokes. Let’s not forget those.” — The Couch). One such theme is that liberalism hides behind seemingly value-neutral or benign language in order to advance a value-laden and not necessarily benign agenda. That was the basic idea behind The Tyranny of Clichés. Conservatives argue as conservatives. Liberals tend to argue not so much as liberals, but in a variety of disguises, each of which tries to draw on authority

It is at times like these, when he is pushed kicking and screaming into the crucible, that Obama’s callowness shows. For his supporters, that jejune, jocular air has been a plus for almost six years. For the rest of us, it has served as a liability and an irritation. Yesterday, it became a wholesale embarrassment. On the perpetual-campaign trail, the pattern is familiar. Trotting up to the podium, the president fist-bumps the audience’s stragglers and smiles a toothy and humble grin at those who catch his eye. While speaking, he responds to obsequy with obsequy — “I love you too!” he

The man doing the threatening is Russian President Vladimir Putin.Earlier this week, Putin promised to retaliate against the United States for new sanctions targeting his friends and business associates, as well as large Russian defense, energy, and financial firms.

(Video) The Washington Free Beacon has put together a greatest hits compilation of the Democrats’ border security quotes. Why would the Democrats continuously insist that the border is secure? Perhaps because Republicans insist on having a secure border before discussing any type of immigration reform legislation. Democrats don’t think people will catch up to this at some point? The PR game that carried Obama – health care lies and all – to the White House is showing significant signs of incompetent wear and tear

Gay marriage laws and court rulings against sexual-orientation discrimination are all signs that it’s time for the federal government to change its blood-donor policy for gay and bisexual men, authors said in a commentary released Saturday. The lifetime ban for blood donation by men who have sex with men (MSM) “may be perpetuating outdated homophobic perceptions,” wrote Dr. Eli Y. Adashi of Brown University and scholars I.
