1,461 Days of Summer
Washington Free Beacon, by Matthew Continetti

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 8/22/2014 5:25:59 AM

The headline was brutal. “Bam’s Golf War: Prez tees off as Foley’s parents grieve,” read the cover of Thursday’s New York Daily News. Obama’s gaffe was this: He had denounced the beheading of James Foley from a vacation spot in Martha’s Vineyard, then went to the golf course. Seems like he had a great time. Such a great time that he returned to the Farm Neck Golf Club—sorry, membership is full—the next day. Technically, Obama’s vacation began on August 9. It is scheduled to end on Sunday, August 24. With the exception of a two-day interlude in D.C., it has been

In case Continetti didn´t hear the actual broadcast, Obama called the beheaded journalist by the name ´´Jim´´ as if Obama knew him personally, which he DID NOT.

If, as suspected, he began the job to demean the office of the president, he has succeeded beyond all expectations.

All were wondering why the president would be returning to DC for a brief interlude; it was to bring one daughter home and pick up the other daughter. No expense is too much for the American tax payer don´t you know.

I like where Continetti questions just what IS the work BO is doing while he plays and parties?

Presidents are "always" working, so they say. But can this one really "multi-task"? Maybe if he´s walking the dog and talking with Val-Jar.

He doesn´t start the work day early in the morning like President Bush did.

BO behaves as if the mere force of his persona is enough for the world. The sycophants surrounding him and in the media feed that ego beast, or beastly ego.

It seems that Dempsey and Hagel were saying yesterday that they are really worried about the spreading ISIL horror. Perhaps I missed it, but I did not hear them say that they are in constant communication with The President.

The Pentagon had better rescind all those pink slips they´ve been sending out to our guys.

They´d better call for sealing the border here at home. NOW.

Leave BO on the Island.

Obama´s mission is accomplished. He has defanged the evil United States Giant given enemies an open door to enter, ruined the economy, killed and taxed energy companies then set race relations back to post Civil War times.
Nothing left to do but shank a few on the golf course until a proper communist replacement is found.

Gawd, what an endless litany of the horrors of this man´s persona.

Criticizing the president the other day, Joe Scarborough nonetheless conceded, “Presidents are always working, whether on a golf course or behind a desk.”...What, exactly, does President Obama do? He seems to learn everything from the papers...International events routinely take him by surprise.

Can we safely say he is not faithfully executing the duties of the presidency? He isn´t executing anything except our Constitution.

But there is no passion behind these [official] activities, no restless energy, no managerial competence, no sense of purpose or mission or strategy, none of the qualities associated with leadership in business, politics, and culture.

Could that be because too many American voters really believed he was a leader despite his utterly blank leadership canvas?

Donors complain the president does not schmooze, or even have much interest in what they are doing or thinking.

The mark of a true narcissist or worse, a malignant narcissist, is that he doesn´t want to hear about you. He wants you to hear about him, to worship him, to admire him. What you have to say is annoying. You must listen to him.

We have all met such people at parties or other gatherings: They ask how you are or they will ask you where you are from. Your answer is nothing more than an opportunity for them to start talking about themselves, which they will do until you spot your spouse across the room who needs a drink from you.

Relating to someone like Obama is like talking to the family dog: He hears but doesn´t understand. It´s all tonal and body language. The moment your tone or body language looks better than Obama´s, you are history.

That is why O´s "isolation" gets worse; people don´t like him and are finding out he is an empty chair. His surrogates, however, are not and it is they who are doing the work Obama avoids.

Was he looking for his golf clubs when he returned to DC, or was an ´emergency´ meeting with Reggie Love?
The emperor has no clothes, we have all known this for a long time, now even his party begins to realize this.
It´s going to get ugly, lots might be dying, whilst he will be flying off into the sunset on AF One looking for a golf course that did not suffer any damage.
This amateur has to be forced to resign.
In NY we had Dinkins, and what a Dink he was, but he wrecked only a city.
This guy is wrecking the entire country and the world to boot.
Perhaps he ´hands off´ policy was by design from day one!

Have you noticed that Obama and others in his administration use the term ISIL. The media uses the term ISIS. They even type ISIS on the text under the interview in which the administration is saying, "ISIL".

As I understand it, the difference is largely a matter of how lofty their goals are in the Middle East. ISIS refers to their desire to dominate in Iraq and Syria. ISIL refers to the same group wanting an islamic caliphate in the entire region they want to dominate, which includes Israel, Jordan....

So why would the administration want to feed their egos and aspirations?

Most Texas abortion clinics shut down
as abortion rights recede in South
Christian Science Monitor, by Patrik Jonsson    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 10/4/2014 7:48:03 AM     Post Reply
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,

Here’s Some Executive Action

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

How Ebola Compares to

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

   

 



 
Dereliction of duty: Obama

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. As reported by Breitbart.com, “A new Government Accountability Institute (GAI)report reveals that President Barack Obama has attended only

Imagine if you downloaded something that ended up wiping out all the information you needed before meeting with an IRS agent asking about discrepancies on your tax return. How sympathetic do you think that IRS agent would be? But when it comes to the IRS itself, this is just what officials would have us believe. Turns out too it’s not just Lois Lerner, whose computer crashed right after Congress asked for info about the tax targeting of conservative organizations. Now we’re learning of another case where hard drives holding information that would help tell us what the IRS was up to have

In a letter to Gov.

He added: "It is my concern that these assertions have become a distraction from the great record of this administration." Hours later, the department´s deputy

A convert to Islam who named himself Jah’Keem Yisrael (formerly Alton Alexander Nolen) beheaded one of his coworkers and was shot while trying to behead another on September 26 at his place of work, Vaughan Foods in Moore, Oklahoma. 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.

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. Responsibility was avoided; privileges and credentials asserted; authority reasserted. Trust us. Remain calm. Don’t panic. This is the template of recent events. A mental case jumps the White House fence. He makes it to the East Room before he’s tackled by an off-duty Secret Service agent. Initial statements turn out to be misleading or false.

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 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

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.

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

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.
