to Hospital Because of Obama Motorcade

KNBC [Los Angeles], by Samia Khan and Robert Kovacik

Original Article

Posted By:Toledo, 7/24/2014 11:55:29 AM

A woman who witnesses said appeared to be in labor was prevented from crossing an LA street Wednesday afternoon because the road was closed for President Barack Obama’s motorcade. The woman was seen sitting at a bus stop bench on the south side of 3rd Street just east of Robertson Boulevard and across from Cedars Sinai Medical Center. NBC4’s Robert Kovacik shot video on his cell phone of a woman sitting at a bus stop bench and posted it to his Instagram account with the caption, "Woman in labor on bench as motorcade passes; not allowed to cross street to

It´s a bit overblown, but it might be as close to an anti-Obama story as some will ever see.

There are advantages to living in a state whose vote in the Presidential elections is totally predictable. Here in Oklahoma we haven´t seen much of Obama or Biden. My condolences to those of you who have your travel interrupted by motorcades.

Our Caesar must be bowed to...make way for Caesar!

Notice how huge these "Protection" motorcades have become. They are no longer just means of transport. They are attention getters. They shut down entire cities and completely absorb the entire police departments for days.

If I were king of the World, I might have a motorcade half as long. But, this White House Pimp has to show it all off.

With the profusion of privately held drones/RC aircraft, I suspect there WILL be an incident over one of these motorcades someday. Closure of a motorcade route for multiple hours gives any serious trouble maker a lot of warning to deploy their flyer and keep watch. So, that may lead to
1. Banning of private drones/RC aircraft;
2. (AND/OR) Low level air escort (local populations will JUST love that);
3. (AND/OR) Jamming of all non-FCC approved radio signals in the motorcade area;
3. (OR) Replacement of motorcades by helicopter flights. This is the best option for us lowly peasants - less disruption.

END WAG

Presidential motorcades have been tying up traffic for years, this is nothing new. Done by all Rep and Dem Presidents, though actually it´s the Secret Service that decides on necessary security and motorcades.

In this case I blame this cop. He was told about her condition 30 minutes before the motorcade and could have had her in the hospital in minutes, even by ambulance.

He said these tie ups rarely happened before Obama.
Obama always seems to fly in or out at rush hour for maximum disruptions.
Businesses lose customers who don´t want to be tied up in traffic for hours due to this narcissist.
Commuters are late for work or cannot get home for hours.
Obama reminds me of the Soviet Apparatchiks who had their own lane for their black Cars while everyone else took the subways and the rest of lanes were empty.

On Sunday, tens of thousands of committed leftists held “climate change” world rallies. Thousands descended on New York City, marching through the heart of Manhattan with a message of alarm for world leaders. The far left activists are worried about the effects of global warming despite the fact that the US just went through its coldest winter in a century and Antarctic sea ice is at record levels. The alarmists are worried about global warming. But, they let others worry about their trash.

Iran Facing Leadership Crisis as
Supreme Leader’s Health Worsens

Iran is on the cusp of experiencing a major political crisis as regime insiders jockey for power in what intelligence reports indicate is the coming end to Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei’s 25-year reign as head of the country. Khamenei, who rose to power as Iran’s second supreme leader in 1989, was in the hospital last week to undergo prostate surgery. The well-publicized surgery—coupled with 2010 U.S. diplomatic cables stating that Khamenei has terminal caner—suggest that the regime is “preparing the nation and the world for a transition to a third supreme leader,” according to a report released by the global intelligence giant

Two Cambodian Buddhist monks have been arrested in the popular tourist city of Siem Reap for smoking crystal methamphetamine along with two women in their pagoda. The room of Pich David, 36, who has a history of erratic behaviour in the Buddhist community of Pur Langka, in Slakram commune, was raided by police who found alcohol, condoms and a pipe for smoking Ice, the other name used to describe the extremely addictive stimulant drug.

While poverty isn´t a joking matter, I can´t help but laugh whenever I read about politicians, celebrities and pundits on both sides trying and failing to live on food stamps and the minimum wage. It´s obvious they have never been poor nor are they very resourceful individuals. At the same time that liberals are posting the horrors of starving kids in New York City, Michele Obama is bemoaning the rise of childhood obesity that only she can stem.

Democratic National Committee Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz is in a behind-the-scenes struggle with the White House, congressional Democrats and Washington insiders who have lost confidence in her as both a unifying leader and reliable party spokesperson at a time when they need her most. Long-simmering doubts about her have reached a peak after two recent public flubs: criticizing the White House’s handling of the border crisis and comparing the tea party to wife beaters. The perception of critics is that Wasserman Schultz spends more energy tending to her own political ambitions than helping Democrats win. This includes using meetings with

Barak Barfi, spokesman for the family of beheaded American journalist Steven Sotloff, claimed Wednesday that the Obama administration “bullied and hectored” the Sotloff family as they tried to rescue their son from terrorist captivity. On CBS This Morning, Barfi was asked if the Sotloff family attempted raising ransom money to send to the terrorist network ISIS in exchange for Steven’s safe return to the U.S. “We had meetings with the administration,” Barfi said. “The family sat with the National Security Council officials.

PARIS -- About half of Iraq´s army is incapable of partnering effectively with the U.S. to roll back the Islamic State group´s territorial gains in western and northern Iraq, and the other half needs to be partially rebuilt with U.S. training and additional equipment, the top U.S. military officer said Wednesday. Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and a former wartime commander of U.S. training programs in Iraq, said a renewed U.S. training effort might revive the issue of gaining legal immunity from Iraqi prosecution for those U.S. troops who are training the Iraqis.

Jewish Group Condemns Biden’s
‘Offensive’ Reference To ‘Shylocks’

Vice President Joe Biden’s casual use of an expression deemed anti-Semitic by many has drawn sharp condemnation from the Anti-Defamation League. Biden referred to bankers who take advantage of military men and women serving overseas as “Shylocks.” The term comes from Shakespeare’s The Merchant of Venice, in which the villain Shylock is a greedy Jewish moneylender who infamously asks for a “pound of flesh” as payment. “Shylock represents the medieval stereotype about Jews and remains an offensive characterization to this day. The Vice President should have been more careful,” said Anti-Defamation League National Director Abraham Foxman. Biden was speaking to the Legal Services Corporation,

In his major address explaining America’s new war against ISIS, President Obama pledged that there would be no U.S. combat troops. On Tuesday, Gen. Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said he may recommend ground forces in the future. The White House is seeking to gloss over the rift between the president and his top general, but it is clear that just below the waterline Obama is not on the same page as the commanders who will be leading the new fight. U.S. military officials and members of Congress have complained privately for weeks that Obama appears

We´re at war. We´re putting boots on the ground. We´re not waiting around for the host nation´s government to get its affairs in order, or for a regional coalition to commit first. The president has apparently overcome his reluctance to use the military, his worries about a commitment to intervene without an exit strategy, and his usual reluctance to acknowledge (even implicitly) that his administration was wrong when it assured us that there was nothing much for us to worry about. Of course, the enemy the president has boldly and unhesitatingly sent our troops to fight is the Ebola virus. Aren´t there

The summer lull in illegal border crossings from Mexico is about to give way to a rush of even more immigrants in a frenzy of fear that Washington is about to shut the door, according to several Hispanic leaders. In Honduras, for example, U.S. threats coupled with those from local leaders warning about the dangers of crossing the border have instead reenergized children and adults to run fast to America and pay inflated fees to “coyotes” to get them there. “As I am speaking, hundreds of children are trying to leave Honduras,” said Jose Guadalupe Ruelas, a Honduran leader who advocates

Throughout debate and final passage of Obamacare, the president and liberal allies in Congress assured the American people that the expansive healthcare law would not fund elective abortions. “[U]nder our plan, no federal dollars will be used to fund abortions,”President Obama declared in 2009. Today, the Government Accountability Office (GAO) confirms that’s just another broken promise. Here are three things you need to know about abortion and Obamacare: 1. Obamacare sends federal taxpayer dollars to health plans that include coverage of elective abortion. The GAO identified 1,036 Obamacare exchange plans across the country that cover elective abortion while remaining eligible for taxpayer subsidies.

Employers won’t hire her. She’s been berated with epithets like “dirty Jew.” Federal agents have guarded her house because of death threats.

The United Nations Climate Summit will begin in New York this Tuesday, but environmental activists didn’t wait. All day Sunday, they filled the streets of Manhattan for a march that featured Al Gore, New York City mayor Bill de Blasio, and various Hollywood actors. But they certainly didn’t act like a movement that was winning. There was a tone of fatalism in the comments of many with whom I spoke; they despair that the kind of radical change they advocate probably won’t result from the normal democratic process. It’s no surprise then that the rhetoric of climate-change activists has become increasingly

I know a lot of people are giddy at the prospect of Republicans taking the Senate this November, but that’s becoming less and less likely. It’s not because Democrats are rallying around a particular mission or set of candidates; it’s because Republicans and conservatives aren’t. It seems like I’m always writing on issues no one wants to hear are mistakes, such as messaging or social issues. But I don’t care. These things have to be said. If these columns are received like a gaseous cousin on a long car trip through the desert, so be it. Crack a window… If things continue on their current course, the GOP will not retake the Senate.

He was a leading figure in one of the biggest climate change marches to date. But it seems Robert F Kennedy Jr was not so forthcoming when it came to questions about his own carbon footprint. Confronted by a reporter asking if he would give up his phone and car, the environmental lawyer became visibly irate before grabbing the microphone and accusing her of ´destroying democracy´ as a member of the press. The interview in New York yesterday afternoon started with a conversation about the number of flyers produced for the event, which Kennedy Jr claimed was necessary to garner ´people power´.

It was once said, “religion is designed to comfort the afflicted and to afflict the comfortable.” Jesus’ parables – short stories with moral lessons – were likewise designed to afflict, to draw us in but leave us uncomfortable. These teachings can be read as being about divine love and salvation, sure. But, their first listeners – first century Jews in Galilee and Judea – heard much more challenging messages. Only when we hear the parables as Jesus’ own audience did can we fully experience their power and find ourselves surprised and challenged today. Here are four examples of Jesus’ teachings that everybody gets wrong: 1.

Clinton met with Alinsky several times in 1968 while writing a Wellesley college thesis about his theory of community organizing. Clinton’s relationship with Alinsky, and her support for his philosophy, continued for several years after she entered Yale law school in 1969, two letters obtained by the Washington Free Beacon show.

When Anthony Weiner’s mayoral campaign imploded last year amid new sexting revelations, the fallout buffeted his wife, longtime Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin. Clinton’s inner circle was furious with Weiner, and Abedin’s role with Hillary was said to be in doubt. “Huma has a choice to make,” New York magazine quoted a “close associate” of Abedin’s as saying. “Does she go with Anthony, or does she go with Hillary?” The magazine described Abedin as “traumatized” by the prospect of leaving the inner sanctum. One year later, Abedin’s marriage to Weiner appears intact, and her role in Hillary’s camp is secure. As Clinton’s personal chief

The forecast is for people, and lots of them. The People’s Climate March is expected to bring more than 100,000 people who want to save the planet to the city Sunday. The march to address climate change, billed as the largest in history, is occurring two days before President Obama and world leaders attend a summit dealing with the same issue at the United Nations. U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon — who has fought passionately against global warming — along with celebrities, CEOs and activists are expected to descend on the city for the massive event.
