Karl: Obama W.H. ‘Entirely Unconcerned’
by Optics of Golfing During Crises

Washington Free Beacon, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 8/11/2014 1:14:10 PM

ABC’s Jon Karl reported Sunday that the Obama White House is “entirely unconcerned” about the optics of President Obama playing golf during the ongoing foreign policy crises. “They are entirely unconcerned about it because their boss is entirely unconcerned about it. Even if they were [concerned] there isn’t anything they could do about it. He likes to get out and play golf. It was pretty remarkable, he got here [Martha’s Vineyard] and on the golf course in almost record time. I think we were on the island about an hour by the time he was already hitting off the first

Comments:
It´s surprising that Karl continues to ask questions and make comments like this. It´s hard to believe he hasn´t gotten a call from the White House to stop this. Who knows, maybe he has.

With the amount he plays, he should be at the top of the PGA leader board.

Lord knows, he´s not earning his salary.

Hey, Øvomit has worked probably harder than any previous president. All the destruction he has brought to our nation takes a lot of work. That much destruction doesn´t come without a LOT of effort!!! He needs a rest (but not nearly as much as our nation needs a rest from him).

Personally, I wish he would go on vacation and stay there until January of 2017. While he´s playing golf, he isn´t actively trying to destroy our nation. Whatever it takes to keep him on the golf course 24/7/365 until his reign of terror ends is worth every penny of our tax dollars!!!

No doubt he thinks golf is more challenging that being president. One has to actually do something with skill, not just listen to himself talk about himself, in golf.

Two Veterans Affairs Medical Center employees were arrested last week for using VA facilities to smuggle and deal cocaine, the Department of Justice recently announced. Robert Tucker and Erik Casiano had been using the U.S. Postal Service and the mailroom of a VA Medical Center in the Bronx to receive and distribute cocaine since “at least November 2013,” according to the press release. Tucker has worked for the VA since 1997, and in 2012 was promoted to supervisor of the Logistics Warehouse and Mail Center. Casiano, a pipefitter in the plumbing department, had worked for the center since 2012. All told, the

President Obama is scheduled to address the nation this evening to discuss destroying the terrorist army of ISIS. But before hitting the airwaves, he´s asking Democratic donors to "chip in $10 or more right now to help elect Democrats." He made the ask in an email to supporters of the Democratic party. "There are just 55 days left in this election, Daniel," writes Obama in the email. "That´s 55 days left for Democrats in tight races across the country to build the organization they need to win -- and if we don´t step up right now, it´s going to be harder for our

President Obama met with congressional leaders and military advisers on Tuesday to frame a strategy for battling the Islamic State overseas. Better late than never. But Obama still has said nothing about stopping jihadists from bringing their terror here. It´s up to Congress to act on this urgent issue. Congress should reverse Obama´s dangerous new policy of granting asylum to people with terrorist connections. Federal law bars it, but on Feb. 5, the administration went around Congress and loosened the law to welcome asylum seekers who have provided only "limited material support" to terrorists. Next, Congress should outlaw visas to "study" at unaccredited institutions,

With Illegals, Lawlessness Begets Lawlessness
Investor´s Business Daily, by Editorial    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 9/10/2014 7:05:45 PM     Post Reply
Rule Of Law: Illegal aliens are now flooding public schools without proper immunizations, putting U.S. children at risk. With local authorities powerless to stop it, this underscores how illegality begets lawlessless in all areas of life. As the Obama administration, the left-wing activist judiciary and the open-borders lobby portray illegal immigrants as amnesty-worthy people who — apart from not observing U.S. immigration law — are model de facto citizens, the hard reality is that their illegality is begetting a total breakdown in the rule of law well beyond immigration. Most recently, the Daily Caller reported that illegals are being allowed

Emails: IRS worker got $138,000 to do

Underperforming IRS workers are being protected from firing by the National Treasury Employees Union in the tax agency that let workers devote 500,000 hours — worth over $20 million in salary — on labor activities last year, according to internal emails revealed Wednesday. The House Ways and Means Committee said that emails from former IRS executive Lois Lerner, being probed for her involvement in the agency’s targeting of conservatives, show she vented at being blocked from firing one worker who did “nothing,” yet still received up to $138,136 a year. The email prompted Rep. Charles Boustany, R-La., the chairman of the oversight

The White House has released excerpts from President´s Obama´s speech tonight on a counter-terrorism strategy against the Islamic State: "So tonight, with a new Iraqi government in place, and following consultations with allies abroad and Congress at home, I can announce that America will lead a broad coalition to roll back this terrorist threat. "Our objective is clear: we will degrade, and ultimately destroy, ISIL through a comprehensive and sustained counter-terrorism strategy. "But I want the American people to understand how this effort will be different from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. It will not involve American combat troops fighting on foreign

Pacific pushback: Podesta, White House

EXCLUSIVE: John Podesta, the Obama administration’s climate and energy czar, got a blunt warning this week that a plan to cut off all fishing in a huge, U.S.-controlled tract of the Pacific Ocean would have devastating economic effects in the region, and would cede geopolitical advantages to China and other Pacific powers. “China is overwhelming the South Pacific with investment, and increasing its fishing fleet in the area,” noted Eric Kingman, a Hawaii-based fisheries enforcement official and one of those who carried the warning. For the U.S. not to recognize this potential for lost influence would be “incredibly naïve,” he added. Kingman

Cardinal: U.S. ‘Creed’ on Gay Marriage

Cardinal Francis George, head of the Catholic archdiocese of Chicago, said the levers of power in government, education, entertainment, and media are enforcing a “public creed,” a “fake church” that requires all citizens to approve of gay marriage and related sexual anomalies or be punished by the State, just “as Christians and Jews are fined for their religion in countries governed by Sharia law.” (Snip) The State, in the past, had “kept its promise to protect all religions and not become a rival to them, a fake church,” said the cardinal. But that has now changed, he said. “In recent years,

The continuing resolution that the House Appropriations Committee introduced yesterday and that the House Republican leadership is preparing to bring up for a vote on the House floor puts no limits on funding Planned Parenthood—the nation’s largest abortion provider—or any provision of Obamacare, including the regulations that force Christian individuals and organizations to buy or provide health insurance that covers abortion-inducing drugs. “The bill is ‘clean’ and does not contain highly controversial provisions,” says a press release put out by the Appropriations Committee. “We have reached the point where a Continuing Resolution is necessary to keep the government functioning and avoid another

ObamaCare in Senate races

The politically divisive legacy of ObamaCare has vulnerable Democrats trying to downplay their past support of the legislation ahead of Election Day – by criticizing the president’s execution of the law or by sidestepping the issue altogether. Lately, Democrats in tough Senate races have been slamming President Obama for breaking his pledge that everyone could keep their health plans and doctors "no matter what." Louisiana Sen. Mary Landrieu, locked in a race with Republican Rep. Bill Cassidy, says of Obama in a recent ad: "This is a promise you made. This is a promise you should keep." Landrieu previously offered legislation requiring people

Every week another lad or lass from St. Louis, Toronto or Sydney makes the trip through Turkey to the Islamic State. A reporter dispatched by a local paper to talk to the neighbors scribbles down the same recollections about how nice and normal Jihad Joe or Jihad Jane was. (Snip) The Somali and Algerian immigrants, the German and American converts, the black burkas and dyed beards, headed into the dying summer to kill Christians and Kurds, Turkmen and Shiites, to behead babies and crucify critics, don’t seem like monsters. They loved their parents. They posed for jokey snapshots on Facebook.

   

 



 
A Mismanage-able Problem

President Obama says he intends to shrink the al-Qaeda-spawned Islamic State into a “manageable problem.” Perhaps we’ll learn more about how when he speaks to the nation on Wednesday evening. Still, the question presses: Is he the manager for the job? (Snip) In late September 2012, Mr. Obama’s administration quietly approved the transfer of 55 jihadist prisoners out of the Guantanamo Bay detention center. As Tom Joscelyn explained at the time, most of the detainees had previously been categorized as “high risk” because they were deemed “likely to pose a threat to the US, its interests, and allies” if released.

Half of all bird species in North America — including the bald eagle — are at risk of severe population decline by 2080 if the swift pace of global warming continues, the National Audubon Society concluded in a study released Monday. "The scale of the disruption we´re projecting is a real punch in the gut," said Gary Langham, chief Audubon scientist.

Here´s the relevant excerpt (emphasis mine): When he introduced himself, S. Truett Cathy often played down his job. “I cook chicken for a living,” he would say. And on the surface, that was true.

WASHINGTON--US President Barack Obama will tell the American people on Wednesday night that he plans to order strikes against Islamic State forces in both Syria and Iraq until the group is ultimately destroyed. The president´s plan includes additional support for opposition militias in Syria vetted by the United States, which will serve as a ground force complementing America´s air campaign. [Snip] The "comprehensive strategy," as described by one White House official, will involve "US military action and support for the forces combating ISIL [Islamic State] on the ground–both the opposition in Syria and a new, inclusive Iraqi government."

Megyn Kelly tonight brought viewers the first part of her contentious showdown with Professor Ward Churchill, best known for his controversial comments about the “little Eichmanns” who were in the World Trade Center when the planes hit on September 11th. Churchill came under intense scrutiny and was fired by the University of Colorado at Boulder. What concerned Kelly most in the first part of the interview was that “little Eichmanns” comment, the argument being that Eichmann played a role in horrible atrocities even though he didn’t directly carry out the Final Solution, which he views as similar to the financial

Free money for everyone! With weak job growth, rising poverty, and the rich continuing to devour nearly all economic growth, it´s an idea that is gaining more credence. Arguments for a universal basic income (UBI) — in which everyone without exception would receive an equal stipend — have flourished in policy-centric areas of the internet, including The Week. Advocates of UBI see it as a blunter, more effective means of reducing poverty and shrinking the inequality gap. But even if UBI proponents are right on the merits, Tyler Cowen argues that the politics of the issue are not favorable. Under

More and more, Obama seems like a passive observer of events who dismisses criticism as superficial. Not a good combination. “But part of this job is also the theater of it.
