Obama, Standing Undaunted for the
Unpopular Principle... of His Leisure Time

National Review Online, by Jim Geraghty

Original Article

Posted By:MissMolly, 8/24/2014 5:23:21 AM

President Obama Doesn’t Care What We Think About His Golfing. After that brutal New York Daily News cover Thursday afternoon, hitting him for going golfing right after his remarks about the beheading of American, President Obama responded Thursday afternoon… by going golfing. President Obama doesn’t care if the optics are bad. He doesn’t care if there’s an awful contrast because UK Prime Minister David Cameron canceled his vacation plans. He doesn’t care if he’s getting grief from once-stalwart fans like Chris Matthews and Maureen Dowd. He doesn’t care if Congressional Democrats are openly griping about his disinterest and disconnect in the New

I´m retired...admittedly with no servants at my beck and call. I still think it curious, though, that the President of the United States has far more leisure time than I do. And everybody say that job is so hard.

He doesn´t work that hard when he is in Washington either. His workday begins at 10 compared to 6:45 a.m. of George Bush and even Bill Clinton started early in the morning.

Indolent and shiftless are good words to describe our Dear Leader and fit on his busiest days.

He´s not president...but he did stay at an $18 million hotel last night! He is, quite simply a messenger boy. With a pillbox hat and his toothy grin, he´d be a perfect, tall, black copy of the Phillip Morris messenger boy. It´s stunning to think that George (Jew gasser) Soros, Russian and Chinese reds, and worldwide muzlums would band together, but they do have one thing very much in common: the hate America and strive for its destruction. Our Missin-on-the-Links prez is THEIR guy.

Justice Dept. Opens New
Asylum Gate For Guatemalans
Daily Caller, by Neil Munro    Original Article
Posted By: MissMolly- 8/27/2014 5:10:17 AM     Post Reply
The Department of Justice’s board of immigration appeals has decided to let Guatemalan women win asylum in the United States if they claim to be victims of domestic violence. The decision creates a huge new incentive for Guatemalan women to cross the U.S. border, because if their asylum claim is accepted, their children get U.S. citizenship, plus the use of federal health, education and retirement programs, regardless of their initial education and work skills. The new decision also means that many of the Guatemalan women who have already crossed the border this year have a new claim for asylum. “Under this breaking decision

As a society, over the past thousand-odd years, we have progressed a great deal. We no longer use medieval torture implements to punish heretics, confining them in small spaces and prodding them in the vital regions and pressing them with weights until their organs give way. Now we reserve these indignities for people who pay to travel on airplanes. The worst thing about air travel is that you cannot even complain about it without sounding like a hack comic from the 1980s. Anything is bearable so long as you can complain about it. But here this prerogative is denied us. Everything that

To the surprise of no one not on controlled substances, Rick Scott and Charlie Crist overcame weak primary opponents in a low turn-out election Tuesday to become the Republican and Democratic nominees for Florida governor. So it’s officially Mr. Sunshine against Mr. Clean (anyone who has seen Crist campaign and seen a picture of Scott will not question these sobriquets). Incumbent Scott was the choice of 88 percent of Republicans over two unknown vanity candidates. Florida Democrats demonstrated that they want the Florida governorship so badly — an office their party hasn’t held since 1994 — that they’re willing to run

Did McDaniel wait too late to file?

Chris McDaniel´s first hurdle in his lawsuit to overturn his loss to Thad Cochran is a doozy: He may have waited too late to file it. As he worked for weeks building a case and campaigning that the election was stolen from him, McDaniel´s team said a 20-day deadline applies only to challenges of county and local elections, not a statewide U.S. Senate primary. Others, including the secretary of state, agreed with him. "Justice has no timetable," McDaniel said numerous times when questioned why it was taking so long to file his challenge of the June 24 GOP runoff for U.S. Senate. But

When voters go to the polls in primary elections across Florida on Tuesday most attention will be focused on the race in November for the state´s governor´s mansion, shaping up to be one of the most contested - and expensive - in recent memory. The outcome of Tuesday´s Republican and Democrat primaries is a foregone conclusion with incumbent Rick Scott and his main Democratic challenger, former Governor Charlie Crist, forecast to win by wide margins. The race between Scott and Crist in November is expected to be one of the nation´s most closely watched races because it offers Democrats a rare chance

Dueling poll results from Georgia

A new poll of the Georgia Senate race by WSB-TV/Landmark shows Democrat Michelle Nunn leading Republican David Perdue by 7 points, 47-40. If the Dems flip this seat, their chances of maintaining control of the Senate will receive a huge boost. So should Republicans be alarmed by this poll? Probably not. Two polls from just a week ago give Perdue the lead by 9 points (Survey USA) and 7 points (Insider Advantage). In fact, Perdue does so well in four of the five most recent polls that the Real Clear Politics average for the race stands at Perdue +4.2 even with the

A crowd of family, friends, music stars, civil rights leaders and preachers gathered at the Friendly Temple Missionary Baptist Church on Monday for the memorial of Michael Brown, an 18-year-old robbery suspect who was fatally shot by local police officer Darren Wilson in Ferguson, Mo. Brown’s uncle, Pastor Charles Ewing, gave a passionate eulogy and made parallels of his nephew’s life and that of the life of Jesus Christ. “Michael Brown was 18 years old. He was shot around noon. Our Lord and Savior hung on the cross — now compare our time frame 12 o’clock to the Jewish time frame which

Ending the Starbucks ‘Pay-

Peter Schorsch did something for our nation that took courage and conviction. He knew he’d be assaulted for it, and he did it anyway and then stood by his actions. Even bragged about it. He held to his convictions and said he’d do it again, no matter how unpopular it made him. Peter Schorsch did what we all thought about doing but didn’t have the guts. Peter Schorsch ended the pay-it-forward guilt chain at a Starbucks drive-thru.

President Barack Obama´s summer vacation off the Massachusetts coast has come to an end. The president returned to the White House late Sunday after spending two weeks with his family on the island of Martha´s Vineyard. What a break it turned out to be. His attempt at rest and relaxation was largely overtaken by events involving Islamic State militants in Iraq and Syria, including the videotaped execution of an American journalist they had been holding hostage, and the unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, following the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black man. Obama broke from his vacation to deliver statements on Iraq,

Near the height of annual harvesting and tourist season, California´s Napa Valley wineries were struck hard by Sunday´s magnitude-6.0 earthquake, but many reported surprisingly light damage. The early morning earthquake, whose epicenter was about 9 miles south of Napa, jolted residents and had winemakers scrambling to check their homes and businesses. "It was a very violent awakening," says Sandy Taylor, co-founder of the Taylor Family Winery in Napa. "It seemed to shake a long time. Our dogs and cats bailed out." Taylor says her winery, about a mile from the epicenter, lost one barrel of 2013 Chardonnay. "The finished bottles at the winery

Missing and unmentioned in the Post article are any complaints of mistreatment or racism by Officer Wilson from residents of Jennings and Ferguson prior to the Brown shooting. The Washington Post published a long article Saturday night–more than seventy paragraphs–with three bylines and six supporting reporters looking for dirt on Officer Darren Wilson–an effort unmatched by the media since Sarah Palin’s official emails were released from her time as Alaska governor. Officer Wilson is the white Ferguson, Missouri policeman who shot unarmed black 18 year old robber Michael Brown in a confrontation in the middle of a neighborhood street minutes after Brown

With summer drawing to a close, parents are desperate. Camp’s over; the kids’ friends have left for more exotic destinations. A trip to the pool doesn’t yield the same excitement it did in June. And so many families are caving to demands for a trip to the amusement park. Whether you’re thinking of Six Flags, Sesame Place, Hershey Park or Dutch Wonderland: Don’t do it — you’ll be sorry. Amusement parks — especially water parks — have never been more popular. More than 26 million people went to a Six Flags last year.

President Barack Obama faced a tough crowd on Tuesday – American military veterans – and fell flat on his applause lines as he failed to win over the American Legion´s convention-goers. The 35-minute speech seemed to have reminded the audience of the stark divide between the White House´s policy choices and the feelings of the men and women often called on to carry them out. A Virginia legionnaire who served in the U.S. Marine Corps told MailOnline that ´a small group of Obama´s admirers – and there are some here – sat near the front and tried to generate applause

Democrat Michelle Nunn is running ahead of David Perdue in the race for the U.S. Senate in Georgia. The WSB-TV poll found that Mrs. Nunn has 47 percent to 40 percent edge over Mr. Perdue. The libertarian candidate, Amanda Swafford, received 3 percent, and 10 percent of the respondents were undecided. The winner of the race will replace retiring Sen. Saxby Chambliss. Mrs. Nunn, the daughter of former Georgia Sen. Sam Nunn, is seen as one of Democrats best bets to flip control of a GOP-held seat. Republicans need to flip six seats to win back the Senate.

Texas Governor Rick Perry has reportedly aligned himself with two of the most infamous Republican establishment operatives known for trashing conservatives. Perry is working with Henry Barbour, whom conservatives want the Republican National Committee to censure for his group´s smearing of conservatives in the Mississippi Senate runoff, and Steve Schmidt, who has elevated his profile by maligning conservatives, especially former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin. Politico´s Maggie Haberman reported on Tuesday that Schmidt, the infamous hack from Sen.

American black people are being lied to and the lies destroy them. They are being lied to by corrupt people like Attorney General Eric Holder and Al Sharpton Jr. and Jesse Jackson and the leftists in our news media. They are being told that their poverty is due to prejudice and that the police are targeting them out of bigotry. They are being told that the dreadful existence of slum life grew out of slavery and is being perpetuated by hatred. None of this is true. Poor black people are poor because they have no family structure and get little education.

The White House is bristling at suggestions President Obama is disconnected, checked out or out of touch. White House allies maintain that the storyline of a checked-out president is a myth drummed up by the media during the summer doldrums. “It’s bullshit,” said one former senior administration official. “This is a guy who reads 10 letters a day simply to keep in touch with the American people. He spends all his time thinking about the economy and improving lives of the American people. He’s constantly in touch.” Obama has been criticized as out of touch by critics and supporters, with the subject

Our AJC colleague Nicholas Fouriezos passes along the following dispatch: The racial unrest caused by tensions over the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., could be a rallying cry for Democratic get-out-the-vote efforts, according to the voter education committee chair for the Democratic Southern caucus. “There is a story beneath the story in Ferguson,” chairwoman Janet May said at the Southern Caucus meeting during the Democratic National Convention in Atlanta on Friday.

When a federal appeals court ruled last month that a seemingly arcane wording flaw in the Affordable Care Act should invalidate a central part of the law, many of those who drafted the statute five years ago reacted with shock and anger. In 2009, they had spent months piecing together a compromise that sought to create a national system of subsidized insurance — but one run by the states. Now, they fear their work could be undone by what some call a "drafting error" and others portray as a political miscalculation. The judges from the U.S. Court of Appeals for

Amid the hysteria over the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown in Ferguson, Mo., it might be lost that most black and white Americans believe they’re not out to get each other. A new Pew Research survey shows that 75 percent of whites and 64 percent of blacks say their groups get along together “pretty well” if not “very well.” It’s a bleaker view for Hispanics, 53 percent of whom say the same. Ferguson fell into the national media spotlight on Aug. 9 when Brown, who was unarmed and black,” was shot dead by Darren Wilson, a white police officer. A St. Louis grand jury is currently deliberating whether to charge Wilson of a crime.

For many students, the unwelcome return to school is often sweetened with a shopping trip for school supplies and new clothes. Not anymore. As college, high school and grade school students begin returning to classes, the Environmental Protection Agency is urging students to use recycled material, even garbage, for their supplies and to shop at thrift stores for “retro fashions.” And don’t even think about taking more than one napkin or salt packet in the lunch line. “Buy smart!

As Burger King eyes moving its headquarters to Canada to lower its tax bill, a Democratic senator is recommending a boycott of the burger joint. Instead, Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, said hamburger lovers should try out two fast food chains that haven´t "abandoned" the United States -- White Castle and Wendy´s. "Burger King has always said ´Have it Your Way´; well my way is to support two Ohio companies that haven´t abandoned their country or customers," Brown said in a statement. Burger King is considering purchasing the Canadian-based business Tim Hortons in a move known as an "inversion" -- when a company
