Obama made right decision in securing release of POW



Published: Sat, June 7, 2014 @ 12:00 a.m.

2With that clear statement, Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, addressed one of the overriding issues surrounding the release of Bergdahl by the Taliban.

But, the general’s statement has not, and will not, appease President Barack Obama’s critics who contend he gave up too much to bring the American soldier home.

The U.S. handed over five high-level militants detained in Guantanamo Bay, Cuba, to the government of Qatar. The militants are prohibited from traveling outside Qatar for a year.

But Republicans, in particular, contend that the details surrounding Bergdahl’s separation from his unit in the mountains of eastern Afghanistan suggest that this country paid too high a price.

Indeed, former members of the unit have been vocal in their criticism of the Hailey, Idaho, resident, saying he walked away because he was disillusioned with the war and, thus, abandoned his colleagues and the Army. They also contend that he jeopardized the lives of other soldiers who went searching for him in enemy territory.

Though Bergdahl’s former colleagues have legitimate concerns, members of Congress and others who have pounced on the president are doing so for political gain.

What if Obama had decided not to make the deal and Bergdahl had died in captivity? These same critics would now be accusing him of not understanding his role as the commander in chief and not appreciating the ethos of the military that the chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Dempsey, talked about.

Whatever the circumstances of Bergdahl’s separation from his unit, the fact remains that he was a prisoner of war and, therefore, was the responsibility of this nation.

That said, there are other issues surrounding the return of the sergeant the administration must address, foremost of which is the failure of the White House to notify Congress of the release of captives from Guantanamo.

60-day notice

The law requires a 60-day notice, but administration officials contend there wasn’t time because concerns about Bergdahl’s health and the sensitivity of the negotiations required quick action.

Congressional hearings are underway, and while Republicans and Democrats have taken the White House to task for not following the law, lawmakers have an obligation to avoid turning the proceedings into a political circus.

There are important constitutional and ethical questions that must be addressed — which will require members of Congress to demonstrate a level of thoughtful deliberation that has been sorely lacking on Capitol Hill.

The other issue that must be addressed has to do with Bergdahl’s duty as a soldier.

Gen. Dempsey has said the Army could still charge Bergdahl with desertion and other violations of his sworn oath as a soldier after an investigation is conducted.

Members of Congress should take care not to impede or undermine the Army’s investigation.

When is the GOP going to grow a pair and impeach this fool. That's the real shame here, All they do is talk and no action. I'm a member of the GOP party . I can say that I am a shame of their weakness. If they don't impeach him , I will vote against ALL incumbents , I don't really care if they are a member of the GOP party or the democrat party.

WOW! Talk about a liberal, a 2nd WOW! Partay, sounds like a union official who helped put Obama into office.

Definition of a liberal:

A liberal is someone who thinks that Fox News lies, but Obama doesn't.

A liberal is someone who says to a pregnant woman "don't smoke. It will hurt your baby," but tells her it's OK to abort that baby.

A liberal is one who complains that Bush added 4 Trillion to our national debt, in 8 years, and that's irresponsible, but when Obama adds considerably more, in just 6 years, that's OK.

Oh, by the way, it's not RepubliKKKans - it's Demo-c RATS

"What none of these media is reporting is that the father's (SGT Bowe Bergdahl's father Bob) first words at the WH were in Arabic -- those words were "bism allah alrahman alraheem" -- which means "in the name of Allah the most gracious and most merciful" -- these are the opening words of every chapter of the Qur'an except one (the chapter of the sword -- the 9th) -- by uttering these words on the grounds of the WH, Bergdahl (the father) sanctified the WH and claimed it for Islam. Obama smiles as the words are uttered." http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V5Dz2Q...

Obama brought home a deserter. That's what someone is called when they walk away voluntarily from their assigned post and greet the Taliban with open arms. Unemployment down?? That's a laugh not only is it not down but show me where the jobs are.
Made Cantor go away? Hardly. People fed up with Cantor accepting illegal immigrants into the country and not doing what he was elected to do was the cause of his departure. BTW, when Obama traded 5 top Taliban leaders in exchange for this screw up, what do you think the first thing they want to do? Kill Americans. So Obama put the United States in an even greater danger by making his weekly "kingly" decree. Now if the voters get it together, we should be looking at the last of a Democratic President for quite awhile. If Illegal Immigrants and minorities are allowed to vote 8 times for a single candidate instead of one time like normal people, the shift may go the other way.

Just wondering...when GW Bush was in office, gas prices were kept high so that his oil buddies and Cheney's Halliburton could reap massive profits. But, with Obama, he gets off without any criticism. With Bush, we received a body count tally every night on the evening news. Obama gets elected and no more body count. Yet three times as many Americans have dies in Afghanistan under Obama than under Bush and in less time. No mention. Now, we have city after city in Iraq falling back into radical hands that Americans died to liberate and there is no criticism. More documents get released by the Obama crew about Benghazi but it is a scandal invented by Fox News. Obama is merely a puppet - a community organizer steering us in the wrong direction.

Cantor's loss in Virginia is a sign that Americans are pissed off about the direction their country is heading and they want the brakes applied. Every Congressman should be worried...except for little Timmy Ryan. His voters would vote for Manson if he had a "D" tattooed on his forehead.

Amen to that, Walter. It's amazing how blindly Husseins followers fail to see through his "scripted" actions that he undertakes, only to make himself look like the "hero". This Bergdahl debacle was so obviously concocted at that moment, because Hussein was getting killed in the media for all of the aforementioned scandals and he needed something else to try and get a "victory lap" in. If you can't figure that out, you need to cut back on the "koolaid"!

America is a better place and a safer place under Obama.
The US is out of Iraq and no longer throwing away US lives and Two Trillion dollars a year.

The US has not suffered any terrorist attacks on U.S. Soil under Obama.

The economy is much better than when he entered office.
Unemployment is down to pre-recession levels and the stock market is at record high levels.
8 Million more Americans now have health insurance which is also lowering health cares impact on the US GDP.

Looks like things are much improved since Bush Jr. left office.

Goes to show that the people got it right by re-electing Obama with a majority of the vote for a second term!!

Oh yeah, great to see the US auto industry doing well, GM sold a more cars last month than in any month in the previous six years!!!

The Republican Party HATES women, gays, lesbians, Latinos, African-Americans, organized labor and basically is seeing itself self destruct as their base is smaller than at anytime in history. Turn on THE FIXED NOISE CHANNEL if you don't believe me, they'll tell you how to live your life.

If Obama is "one Muslim helping out another", then how could you justify his relentless pursuit and assasination of Muslim enemy number 1, Bin Laden? The Bush clan was closer to muslims that Obama will ever be, that stemming from their oil relations. Basically, you got oil and money, I will sell my sole and be your buddy so I can profit.

Hey GTX, let's examine the facts.

Obama acted by executive decision, in secrecy, without notifying Congress as required by law. Bush acted lawfully. He obtained the "Authorization for Use of Military Force Against Iraq Resolution of 2002," a joint resolution passed by Congress in Oct.2002 as public law No. 107-243.

Obama acted unilaterally without support of Congress or the defense or intelligence communities. Bush assembled an Iraq war coalition of 49 nations participating in the use of force against the tyrannical Saddam Hussein regime.

These are the cold hard facts. But the real reason the country is going nuts is because of the dubious value of exchanging five senior terrorists dedicated to doing harm to the US for one soldier of questionable character.

parlayhenry, nice "plagiarism" on the "intellectual" quotes! No surprise that a Hussein lemming can't come up with an independent idea or expression. Got to follow the party line, at all costs! And GTX66, although I side with you, I think everyone knows that no matter what laws he breaks, Hussein would never be impeached because such action would be attributed to "racism" and there would be riots in the streets. And please, dontbeafool, you better re-think your posting name, because if you don't believe for one second that the only reason Hussein went after O.B.L. when he did was to take a huge "victory lap" right before he election, then you are "beingafool". Also you must have missed the interview Hussein gave to George Stephanopoulos in September 2008 where Hussein commented on his "muslim" faith and he had to be corrected by Stephanopoulos to say he meant his "Christian" faith. If that's not the ultimate "Freudian slip", I don't know what is! So think what you want, but I've always relied on the old adage that "if it looks like a duck, quacks like a duck, releases the Taliban Dream Team jihadists...." I'll let you finish the rest....

ANd, let's not forget Barack Hussein Obama's comments that the Dream Kids are the hope for the future of America because they are as American as apple pie! That's because the AMERICAN kids are the children of the oppressors, the white children of privilege and Europe. Now, he signals the border is open and children are pouring across the border from Central and South America. Congrats, BHO is the first president since WWII to have internment camps! With highly trained border agents changing diapers...or separating teenagers from intercourse since there is no better way to get a foot-hold on US soil than having a child here. Maybe BHO can offer 500 kids to Mexico for one retired Marine that took a wrong turn and ended up in jail.

Now, BHO fails to get a troop status agreement in Iraq and the country is falling apart. Look at a map, see the forces coming from Syria into northern Iraq and they will soon combine with Iranian forces to move south. Everything that was fought for and won by US troops is falling back into enemy hands and ex-soldiers are asking why. Yes, if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck, it will most certainly release five commanders for one deserter.

At least you've made it abundantly clear to myself and the other posters, here, who we are dealing with....an aethiest who despises the principals and morals that this once great Country was founded on. But I don't deny you your beliefs or opinions, and I would give my life to defend your right to have and express them, as did my father, grandfather, great-grandfather, aunts and uncles. I gather from your writings that you would not be so inclined, but again, that is your prerogative and I bear you no ill-will, for that.

So call me "crazy" for having been brought up to believe in God and Country, first, and to believe that the U.S.A. was the greatest Country in the world, and we owe no one an apology for that, quite unlike your leader, Hussein. Oh, and by the way, it seems I have struck a nerve with you, by my referencing the given middle name of Barack HUSSEIN Obama. Now why would that be so? I have a middle name, and would think nothing of it, if someone called me by it. But again, I must agree with you, that word is revealing, and Hussein has lived up to it.

Lastly, I will admit that we don't have all of the facts in, about Bergdahl, and with this administration I strongly doubt we ever will, but one thing is certain, he abandoned his post and at face value, that is either A,W.O.L., or desertion, both offenses under the Military Code, so as far as I'm concerned, his "boots" don't deserve polishing.

So, parlayhenry, feel free to continue to spew your "Saul Alinsky" style rhetoric, and puff your chest out with your "intellectual prowess", I'll stand with my patriotic brothers and sisters "et al" here and hope that someday we can return this Country to it's greatness it deserves.

The wife of a disabled Afghanistan veteran who was injured while searching for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl has posted a scathing message against him this week, adding a personal account to the rising protests against the negotiations with the Taliban that lead to Bergdahl's freedom.

In a message she posted via Facebook, Shannon Allen, wife of Sgt. 1st Class Mark Allen, wrote 'Meet my husband, injuries directly brought to you by the actions of this traitor. He can't give an account of what went down, because he can no longer speak. Now, which guy is a "hero" again?!? Sick.'

In addition to the message, Allen posted a family picture, showing husband and wife in addition to their daughter. Mark Allen was posed in his wheelchair wearing his dress blues, while their daughter was wearing a graduation cap and gown.

Mark Allen, who is from Loganville, Georgia, was injured when a sniper bullet pierced the armor in his helmet in Kabul, Afghanistan. The bullet entered through his frontal lobe, rendering him paralyzed.

The injury occurred only one month after he arrived to Afghanistan.

Shannon Allen's comments add to the growing surge of public outcry over the circumstances surrounding Bergdahl's capture by Taliban forces, as well as his release.

The outcry is also gathering online. The Facebook group 'Bowe Bergdahl is a Traitor' currently has over 69,000 likes.

The Bergdahl matter will follow the same m.o. as the IRS scandal. Everyone will take the fifth and refuse to answer any questions while the Liar will refuse to supply any documents. Then after a year of foot dragging and contempt of Congress, the Liar will come out and proclaim that this has been investigated for over a year and there is not a "smidgeon" of evidence. No kidding if everyone stonewalls and refuses to talk there will be no evidence. that he is a deserter.

Once again, parlayhenry, your ultra-liberal views are noted and given consideration. And as a result of that consideration, one can conclude that you would have preferred that America had never been colonized. That way, the Native Indians would never have been disturbed, slaves would have never been sold and brought here, eventually freed and then face segregation and we would have never witnessed the likes of Dr. Martin Luther King, the Japanese would never have bombed Pearl Harbor, and Joe McCarthy would not have worried about the Communist threat because he more than likely would have been forced to become one, as we all probably would have been if we never came to America.

And, as for denigrating the current person occupying the Oval Office, I would assume, once again, that you take exception to the reference to his given, lawful middle name. Again I ask, why would that trouble you? Apparently his parents felt strongly enough about their muslim beliefs so as to bestow that name to their son. Could that connotation disturb you, and if so, please explain to myself and the other posters, why?

Yes, I disagree with the liberal ideologies, put forth by parlayhenry, IslandMike and others here, but I read and give consideration to them, they are just contrary to my beliefs. I don't hold them in contempt or feel that I should insult the bearers of those thoughts, but I do believe that I have a right to my own beliefs and opinions and the right to express them, without fear of being "monitored" by the government, because of them.

Well gang, take note, parlayhenry, is still dodging the question I have posed to him, on more than one occasion....that being "why does he take exception to Baracks middle name"? He has even gone as far as accusing me of "denigrating" Barack, by making reference to his given, legal middle name! What inference could he be making by being so upset by that? Is there some subliminal message I'm missing, here? I mean his given, legal middle name isn't like it's Herbert or Walker, or even Wilson, for that matter. I could understand him having issues with those names! Wait a minute!....no, could it be possible?....I can't believe it....could our hero, the self-proclaimed "Super-Intellectual", great defender of the downtrodden and persecuted...say it ain't so!!....could he actually be (I can hardly bring myself to "thunk it")...a closet ISLAMOPHOBE!!!!

Do deserters and traitors get promoted regularly while they are in enemy hands?

How does Rush splain dat one?

Does the Army maybe know something Faux Noise doesn't?

As the terrorists of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) threaten Baghdad, thousands of slaughtered Iraqis in their wake, it is worth recalling a few of President Obama's past statements about ISIS and al Qaeda. "If a J.V. team puts on Lakers' uniforms that doesn't make them Kobe Bryant" (January 2014). "[C]ore al Qaeda is on its heels, has been decimated" (August 2013). "So, let there be no doubt: The tide of war is receding" (September 2011).

Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many. Too many times to count, Mr. Obama has told us he is "ending" the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan—as though wishing made it so. His rhetoric has now come crashing into reality. Watching the black-clad ISIS jihadists take territory once secured by American blood is final proof, if any were needed, that America's enemies are not "decimated." They are emboldened and on the march.

The fall of the Iraqi cities of Fallujah, Tikrit, Mosul and Tel Afar, and the establishment of terrorist safe havens across a large swath of the Arab world, present a strategic threat to the security of the United States. Mr. Obama's actions—before and after ISIS's recent advances in Iraq—have the effect of increasing that threat.

Enlarge Image

An Iraqi soldier in Baghdad with volunteers to fight the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, June 17. Reuters
On a trip to the Middle East this spring, we heard a constant refrain in capitals from the Persian Gulf to Israel, "Can you please explain what your president is doing?" "Why is he walking away?" "Why is he so blithely sacrificing the hard fought gains you secured in Iraq?" "Why is he abandoning your friends?" "Why is he doing deals with your enemies?"

In one Arab capital, a senior official pulled out a map of Syria and Iraq. Drawing an arc with his finger from Raqqa province in northern Syria to Anbar province in western Iraq, he said, "They will control this territory. Al Qaeda is building safe havens and training camps here. Don't the Americans care?"

Our president doesn't seem to. Iraq is at risk of falling to a radical Islamic terror group and Mr. Obama is talking climate change. Terrorists take control of more territory and resources than ever before in history, and he goes golfing. He seems blithely unaware, or indifferent to the fact, that a resurgent al Qaeda presents a clear and present danger to the United States of America.

When Mr. Obama and his team came into office in 2009, al Qaeda in Iraq had been largely defeated, thanks primarily to the heroic efforts of U.S. armed forces during the surge. Mr. Obama had only to negotiate an agreement to leave behind some residual American forces, training and intelligence capabilities to help secure the peace. Instead, he abandoned Iraq and we are watching American defeat snatched from the jaws of victory.

lajoci...the below information was copied from the website "myarmybenefits.com". Your questions should be answered, there.

Promotions: MIA personnel continue to be considered for promotion along with their contemporaries. Policy provides for each missing or captured officer/enlisted member to be considered for promotion to the next higher grade when they are eligible. The eligibility for officers is based on the date of rank in their current grade. For enlisted members, eligibility is based on time in grade and time in service.

Furthermore, the Army currently has a program in place for soldiers to be "automatically" promoted to the rank of Sergeant, once they reach the required amount of active service time, due to a shortage of ranking Sergeants. So that's why Bergdahl was promoted during his absence, not because he was thought to be extraordinary or "special".

Also, I wish everyone would look up the Military's definition of P.O.W., and you will find that Bergdahl cannot be considered a P.O.W. but at best, he was M.I.A., and I'd bet my "bottom dollar" if we ever get the true facts (which is highly unlikely from this administration) about his disappearance he will be deemed to have been A.W.O.L. and stripped of his stripes.

"commandos operating under cover of night".....c'mon man...this dude was having coffee with any reporter who would listen to him, a few days after the attack on our Embassy. So it took us 640+ days to grab him up? He might as well have been "catching some rays" on the White House lawn (or maybe the Rose Garden, since that's where Hussein likes to parade his "trophy folks")! It's so stinking obvious that Hussein is so "jacked-up" to get some "feel-good" print to provide cover for his incompetence, that I'm actually starting to feel sorry for him! How Hussein believes that the American public is so gullible to sell us these "B.S." story's like this latest "lost I.R.S. e-mails", is just beyond me. But from reading some of the posts, here, it's obvious he's got some "takers".

Saul...oops, I mean parlayhenry, I' m just setting the record straight when it comes to Bergdahls classification, and not "romanticizing" it like the media has been doing. But hey, if we ever get the "real" story and the "true facts" about his disappearance..ah, what am I saying, that's never gonna happen. But let's get back to this "accidental terrorist" Hussein so miraculously captured a few days ago. I distinctly remember Hussein deeming him a "terrorist" after his "spontaneous demonstration" story got "shot full of holes" (no pun intended!). So, that being the case, since we are engaged in a "war on terrorism" he's an "enemy combatant" and should be sent to Guantanamo for imprisonment and interrogation. But nooooo....we're bringing him here, where once he hits U.S, soil he's afforded all of the rights any of us citizens are guaranteed. This cat will "lawyer-up" quicker than you can say"Miranda" and there goes any chance at getting any useful intel out of him. But now that I think about it, maybe it's a good thing he's not going to Guantanamo, 'cause Hussein would probably just trade him for a pizza or a new set of clubs.

The fact of the matter is, Hussein knew where this scumbag was, from "day one", but held back putting the grabs on him, knowing that when another one of his many scandals or incompetence was "blowing up in his face", he could get some "good ink" by apprehending him at just the right moment. And when that became so painfully obvious, well shoot, let's just lay blame on our Military and L.E. for the "delay" in his capture.

WHY ENGLAND SAID NO" TO THE U.S
Another look at our "Great Uniter" in the White House.

One reason why England did not join us against Syria is, President Obama was a no-show at Margaret Thatcher's funeral despite being invited to attend and thus snubbing England's invitation as a representative of the American people. What a shameful display. Joe Biden also refused, as did Hillary Clinton.

By the way, former Secretary of State George Schultz (R) went to the funeral. The British took note of the fact that the Obama administration chose not to send a single senior member of the Cabinet. In fact, not one actively serving, elected Democrat attended Lady Thatcher's funeral.

The Obama Administration did, however, send a formal delegation of 14 to the funeral of Socialist Dictator Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez.

"POLL SHOWS OBAMA HITS NEW LOW ON FOREIGN POLICY
What’s the cause of President Obama’s sudden urgency on foreign policy? Perhaps because he has a serious problem with the American electorate. In the wake of the Veterans Affairs scandal, the release of five Islamist leaders from a U.S. prison and the sectarian slaughter in Iraq, Obama’s poll numbers are a disaster. Public approval of Obama’s handling of foreign policy fell again in the WSJ/NBC News poll, sliding to a new all-time low of just 37 percent."

Cambridge...my bad, I failed to acknowledge that the poll I was making reference to was also conducted in conjunction with NBC, ending up with the same results. So, knowing that NBC is one of Husseins most vociferous "cheerleaders", that sort of blows your theory out of the water. Furthermore, for what's left of it, after Hussein has ripped it to shreds, I do believe we have a Constitution and Bill of Rights which entitles me to NOT "deal with it", and allows myself and other like-minded individuals to express our opinions as such. And I guess that's just something you will have to "deal with".

George W. Bush had a doctrine. His dad didn’t but Ronald Reagan had one. So did Jimmy Carter and Richard Nixon. Also Lyndon Johnson, and John Kennedy. Gerald Ford did not last long enough to have one. Eisenhower had one. So did Truman.

No doubt Barack Obama wants one. Some say he has one but they are quick to say they are not sure what it is. There is now a six-year debate about what it might be.

I say he has one and it is clear. His number one foreign policy priority is the promotion of lesbians, gays, bi-sexuals, and transgenders around the world. It is the thing he is most consistent about and the thing he consistently backs with the might and muscle of the United States no matter what.

He issued a presidential memorandum in 2011 making LGBT rights a major foreign policy priority. He directed every part of the Federal government that does business beyond our borders to make this a priority issue including, inexplicably, the Department of Agriculture. Perhaps there are, after all, transgender farms in Swedenlike there are in California.

He directed all Federal agencies to “to expand efforts to combat discrimination, homophobia, and intolerance on the basis of LGBT status or conduct.” Homophobia and intolerance are not defined but you can expect they will be defined broadly enough to get you and me.

Don’t think the Obama Doctrine is not serious or that he treats LGBT issues like he treats America’s traditional leadership role in the world, that is, with regret and disdain. No, for this he punishes. In March he withdrew greatly needed financial assistance to Uganda because Uganda passed what many see as draconian laws restricting LGBT activity, both public and private. I happen to agree that the Uganda laws are draconian but the withdrawal of development aid from such a poor country over this issue simply does not make sense except in the context of the Obama Doctrine.

Uganda is one of the poorest countries in the world. Thirty-seven percent of its population lives on less than $1.25 per day. Life expectancy at birth is 54 years. It has one of the highest infant mortality rates in the world.

Barack Obama withdrew financial support from this poor country as a sop to his rich gay friends at the Human Rights Campaign. He even withdrew money from a program to combat HIV/Aids.

Last Friday twenty-five Democratic Senators, led by Ed Markey of Massachusetts,proposed legislation that would place into law that LGBT is a foreign policy priority for the United States. Their bill goes much further than Obama’s memorandum. This bill even mandates the training of foreign soldiers in the promotion of LGBT rights. It creates a new Special Envoy, appointed by the President, who may roam the world as he sees fit to ensure that this favored group’s favored desires get the full backing of the most powerful nation on earth.

If we ever get the "facts" about Bergdahls disappearance (and I highly doubt we ever will), it may reveal that he didn't desert, but at this point, I certainly believe, as anyone of normal and common sensibility would, that he was A.W.O.L. He wasn't captured in a hostile action or lagged behind on a combat patrol and got lost, he packed up his gear and sent it home and then walked away from his duty assignment. So knowing those basic facts, how Hussein could describe him as serving with "honor and distinction" is ludicrous. And then to add " insult to injury" by having a "Rose Garden Gala" where Bergdahls father is praising "allah", while Hussein stands by smiling like a "kid in a candy store" is an affront to every Serviceman's family and loved ones, especially to those who have paid the "Ultimate Sacrifice" while actually serving with "Honor and Distinction". Where are their Rose Garden ceremonies?

It has become a daily frightening occurrence, hearing politicians, commentators, pundits, and stunned Americans say, “That's outrageous!” “He can't do that!” “No way!” “It's against federal law!” “They have no legal authority to force us to do that!” These comments are in response to the daily unprecedented out-of-control tyranny handed down by Obama and his operatives. We are talking arrogance with a capital A coming out of the Obama administration.

For example: the GOP was moving too slow in caving to Obama's amnesty scheme, so Obama said, Heck with it, I'll bypass everyone and make it happen. Obama sent a clarion call interpreted around the world to mean that if you can get your kids to the U.S., the kids can stay. In essence, Obama has made illegal aliens winners of his Open Borders Lottery: free food, health care, legal assistance, and education – winning more free goodies than are available to American kids. Like a game show announcer, I expect an administration official to enthusiastically say to illegals, “But wait, there's more...A NEW CAR!”

Around one thousand illegals arrive daily. Over 47,000 have arrived thus far, with an estimated 90,000 to arrive by September 30.

Everyone and anyone (gang members, drug dealers and other criminals) are illegally moving to America, greeted with open arms by the Obama administration. Americans who are paying attention are well aware of the impending devastatingly negative impact Obama's “y'all come” policy will have on our structure as a nation, our economy, and our national security.

Evidently Obama was correct when, in 2008, he said "we are 5 days away from transforming America."

Evidently people like cambridge & iajoc are happy with this transformation of America.

At the end of Obama's reign, we will not recognize America after this transformation.

“Remember how great it was during Watergate?” one of the older Washington Post editors mused. “ We were Gods. People couldn’t wait for the morning edition’s latest scandal droppings. And now…” his voice trailed off wistfully.

“Now,“ I thought, “you guys are sitting on an enormous story that in comparison makes Watergate seem microscopic. In retrospect -- considering all the scandals of this administration, which you have consistently underreported -- today Watergate seems to be a vestige of a far more innocent era. Kind of like people once being scandalized by women wearing bloomers at the beach and bobbing their hair”

Lois Lerner directed the IRS targeting of the president’s opponents in order to cut off their funds and limit their free speech and political organization -- constitutional rights -- then pleaded the Fifth Amendment when questioned about it by Congress. Now, late in the game, the IRS claims that she lost her emails covering the critical period of time and that it is impossible to retrieve this significant evidence. The big three evening newscasts ignored the story. Most of the nation’s newspapers have reported little of it and then late.

As it unfolds, the IRS explanation only gets more and more implausible. The claim is that 10 days after House ways and Means Chair Dave Camp inquired into claims that Lerner had targeted conservative groups, her hard drive was accidentally wiped out, and all efforts to retrieve them were unavailing.

Even the timing of the disclosure of the erasures was suspect:

Update: See also: Bombshell: IRS cancelled email backup contract just weeks after Lois Lerner’s computer ‘crashed’

Make no mistake: the weaponization of the IRS and the subsequent cover-up is the biggest political scandal in the history of the United States, and the survival of the Obama presidency now rests in the hands of a compliant mainstream media continuing to ignore the patently ridiculous claims of lost emails and crashed servers.

So when a major mainstream media pillar like the Chicago Tribune takes up the story and raises a few editorial board eyebrows, it makes a difference. The “World’s Greatest Newspaper” editorializes today:

On a matter this serious, the administration can't adequately investigate itself. Given the amount of smoke now rising from the IRS, many Americans won't be much interested in what one arm of the administration concludes about other arms, including the IRS, the Treasury Department of which it's part, and possibly the White House.

That's why we've urged Attorney General Eric Holder to appoint a special prosecutor — a phrase that, like "customer support" or "designated hitter," provokes Pavlovian suspicions. We've been skeptical of some special prosecutors and their tendency toward mission creep. But we've also seen situations where only a special prosecutor has the independence and credibility to resolve a case that drips with politics, as when then-U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald of Chicago investigated (and convicted of perjury and other offenses) I. Lewis "Scooter" Libby, who had been Vice President Dick Cheney's chief of staff.

Why Holder won't act is a mystery he's inviting Americans to resolve, uncharitably, in their own minds. (snip)

This 13-month refusal to name a special prosecutor has become its own curiosity.

While the Tribune is a local not national paper, it is the former home of David Axelrod, and the paper was the entity that went to court to unseal the divorce records of the Republican candidate who stood a good chance of defeating Barack Obama in his run for the Senate – the key step in his march to the presidency.

The continued ability of CBS, NBC, ABC, and the New York Times to ignore the story of the biggest political scandal in history depends on other lesser media organs continuing the boycott.

In the face of an investigation into whether the Internal Revenue Service targeted conservative organizations, the IRS conveniently “lost” two years’ worth of Lois Lerner’s emails.

IT experts have already labeled the IRS’ “dog ate my homework” excuse as ludicrous, and now evidence has come to light that the IRS had a contract with an email archiving company, Sonasoft, between 2005 and 2010.

The contract was cancelled a few weeks after Lerner’s computer allegedly crashed and just before other IRS officials’ computers are said to have crashed, the Daily Caller reported.

Sonasoft tweeted about the arrangement back in 2009.

There goes Obama again:

The National Emergency of Religious persecution continues. President Obama has just nominated San Antonio mayor Julian Castro to serve as Secretary of the Department of Housing & Urban Develpment. Mayor Castro has already demonstrated his hatred and intolerance of Christians and his commitment to advancing the liberal LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) agenda. Under his direction, the San Antonio city council passed an city ordnance that does the following:

Prohibits local government officials from taking any position that opposes the LGBT agenda;
Prohibits anyone from RUNNING for local office who does not support homosexual marriage;
Prohibits local businesses "from discriminating on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity in public accommodations, which includes 'every business within the city ... open to the general public and that offers, for compensation, any product service or facility.'"
Bans landlords from refusing to rent to an individual who is homosexual or transgender; and
Prohibits any businesses or individuals who support biblical marriage from contracting with the city.
Days before passage of the ordinance, Pastor Charles Flowers and a group of local African-American pastors showed up at city hall with hundreds of black and Latino Christians to voice their strong disapproval of the proposed measure. They took issue with comparison of the efforts to normalize homosexual behavior with the historic struggle for civil rights for blacks in America.

"The HLGC - homosexual, lesbian and gender-confused community - has sought to piggyback on the civil rights movement," Flowers noted. "The current HLGC agenda is not a legitimate extension of the civil rights movement. Therefore, we have come to announce a divorce between the civil rights movement and the HLGC agenda, citing irreconcilable differences."

The only way to turn around our economy around, is to insure that the Dems lose both houses, this November. Then, based on the laws he's broken and the multitude of scandals that are eventually going to lead directly back to him, Husseins either going to have to resign or face impeachment and then all of his detrimental laws he has passed need to be repealed. But, in reality, as soon as that process would actually be considered, the "race-baiters" would scream "bloody murder", and this Country would be thrown into chaos, with riots in the streets. Hussein knows that, and he uses his "color" to hide behind, confident that he can do what he wants, without consequence. So, this Country is "screwed" until we have someone in Office, who, when the "chips are down", isn't willing to play the race card. And, before the "racist" accusations start to fly, let it be known that, in my opinion, two of the most honorable and competent men that could hold the Office of President of the U.S.A. are Col.

Barack Obama set the tone and revealed his agenda early in his presidency. A mere three days after his first inauguration, he gathered Republican and Democratic leaders at the White House to discuss the proposed stimulus plan. When presented a list of modest Republican proposals, he told (off) the Republicans that “elections have consequences” and “I won”. As Marc Thiessen wrote in the Washington Post:

Backed by the largest congressional majorities in decades, the president was not terribly interested in giving ground to his vanquished adversaries.

That was an understatement.

What followed was an orgy of spending and debt accumulation unrivaled in history. The regulatory agencies became growth industries, as did crony capitalist boondoggles. The hangover will last decades and has undoubtedly made this recovery weaker than it otherwise would have been. Obama and his Democratic overlords in both Houses of Congress rammed through measures that Republicans could do very little to stop. Not that Democrats cared.

When Scott Brown, a Republican, won the special election to fill Ted Kennedy’s senatorial seat after Kennedy died, Democrats faced the prospect of losing their ability to pass Obamacare in the form they designed. They refused to listen to any talk of compromise or listen to warnings from Republicans that a disaster was in the making. They resorted to extreme actions by passing the bill through an unprecedented “budget reconciliation” tactic. Even then they had to in essence bribe reluctant Democrats through favors granted to them (“Cornhusker Kickback,” “Louisiana Purchase”) to garner their votes. No rewrite, no delay, and certainly no comprise with Republicans. Compromise did not exist in the Democrats’ lexicon.

In the wake of the 2010 Republican takeover of the House, Democrats in the Senate and Barack Obama faced the first real obstacle to their agenda. Rule by decree became the norm. After a history on the campaign trail of castigating George Bush for issuing signing statements when affixing his signature to laws passed by Congress, Obama made liberal use of them to avoid enforcing aspects of the law he considered, in his regalness, to be infringements of his power. Recess appointments were made to work around Republican opposition to his more radical nominations (relative to his merely radical nominations).

Obamacare is going to have to return its hero's cape, and we're all going to have to learn to think twice before we over-react to shaky economic data.

Two months ago, President Barack Obama's signature health-care reform law was widely credited with saving the U.S. economy from shrinking in the first quarter by giving a huge jolt to health-care spending. On Wednesday, we found out that had all been a mirage.

Using more-solid data than it had two months ago, the U.S. Bureau of Economic Analysis found that health spending actually shrank in the first quarter, weakening overall consumer spending and contributing to a terrible quarter for the broader economy. Gross domestic product shrank at a 2.9 percent annualized rate in the quarter, the worst since the depths of the Great Recession, with health spending alone shaving 0.16 percentage points from growth.

What a difference from two months ago, when the BEA first guesstimated that health spending soared at a 9.9 percent rate in the quarter, helping to keep the economy out of the dumpster. Many news outlets, including yours truly, ran headlines like this:

Obamacare Just Saved The U.S. Economy From Contraction.

A Question of ‘Trust’: Are the National Media Downplaying the IRS Scandal?

It was an epic rant by Joe Scarborough, a searing indictment of the mainstream media.

The fiasco over the missing IRS emails is exploding, but the host of “Morning Joe” looked at his morning papers and was mightily displeased.

The New York Times, in particular, which is studied with Talmudic intensity in Manhattan, aroused Joe’s ire yesterday by sticking the IRS story on an inside page—while giving Page 1 display to a “second” bridge scandal involving Chris Christie’s administration.

“Is it possible that the New York Times and Washington Post are not putting on the front page of their newspapers the fact that an internal investigation has been launched against the IRS on the most shady behavior, and yet they put the Pulaski sky bridge whatever on page A-1?” Scarborough thundered on his MSNBC show. “This is garbage.”

He also called it a “scam,” saying: “This is why conservatives don’t trust national newspapers. It’s why they don’t trust broadcast news. There’s a double standard and you can see it on every broadcast. You can see it on the front page of every major newspaper. This is why we don’t trust the national news outlets, because they are so biased and slanted.”

LAREDO, Texas--A glimpse into the reality of the thousands of illegal immigrants being released into the U.S. by the Obama Administration was captured on video in a Greyhound Bus station in Laredo, Texas this weekend. The illegal immigrants who cross as incomplete family units simply enter the U.S. illegally, turn themselves in to U.S. Border Patrol agents, are processed, and then released with a notice to appear at a future date for court proceedings. U.S. taxpayers then fund bus tickets for the illegal immigrants to go to the U.S. city of their choosing. Approximately 95 percent of the illegal immigrants never return as promised for court proceedings, according to Hector Garza, a Border Patrol agent and spokesperson for the National Border Patrol Council (NBPC) Local 2455.

Is Obama Trying To Get Us Killed?
By Stella Paul
As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible?

On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.

Now the feds are spreading these disease vectors from sea to shining sea, stuffed full of HIV, scabies, TB, swine flu, MRSA staph infections, syphilis, and other communicable infestations. “One person can infect a thousand people, and then that thousand can infect thousands more. There is an exponential increase," warnspublic health expert Dr. Elizabeth Van Vliet.

Already, Border Patrol agents are getting sick from these contacts; soon these kids will start showing up in your public school. If you found it annoying when little Jake caught that cold that was going around, wait till he comes home with swine flu.

Mixed among the multitudes are notorious gang members, drug dealers, sex criminals, and terrorists. The gangs will massacre us in our cities, the drug dealers will rape our children’s minds, and the terrorists will disassemble our loved ones’ body parts. As for those poor pathetic youngsters brought here by human smugglers, they eventually will get the jobs that Americans won’t do – working as sex slaves.

Island doesn't understand the stock market either.

Most companies are making more money than ever before, and the reason for that is that they have cut and cut employees to the bone. The money they are making is going into their treasurey and not expanding their facilities.

I gave an example previously.A company had 8 engineers, on staff, and were producing very well. Since Obama came on board, this company reduced their engineering staff to two, through layoffs and layed off other employees and are producing even more than before.

Companies have learned to compete with smaller staffs which will bode badly in the future because they have learned how to cope with belt tightening.
With Obama the stock market's rise is known "an uninternded consequence."

The polar ice-caps are made of, well, ice, and as the globe cools, this causes the ice to melt due to a little known law of physics called the Obama Effect, according to which any whack-a-doodle notion, such as ice melting at decreasing temperatures, becomes accepted science, as long as it contradicts President Obama.

"As you are well aware there is a huge effort around the globe to counter the alleged impact of mankind on the world's climate. If in fact mankind will cause the seas to rise appreciably by causing CO2 induced global warming then certainly let's do something about it. But, what if global warming is not what they say it is? What if the world's temperature is headed in the opposite direction? Global temperatures increased for twenty years from the late 1970s to the late 1990s but have either stopped warming or have begun to cool in the last seventeen years. The global warming and subsequent cooling were even predictable due to hundreds of years of historical trends and observation of the impact of variations in solar activity and ocean cycles on global temperatures.

Did you know that in the past the Roman Period and Medieval Period were both several degrees warmer than today's temperature. The world then cooled at least four degrees from approx. 1450 to 1850. This period was called the Little Ice Age (a period of glacial advance, the same glaciers that have been in retreat until recently). These temperature variations were not caused by man. They were caused entirely by natural forces."

Maybe you should actually LEARN the difference between sea ice and glaciers.

Of course, you won't find the distinction on fossil fuel industry-funded websites bought and paid for by the coal, oil, and gas companies.

You will find junk science that starts with the premise that whatever "science" promotes the fossil fuel industry is, ipso facto, good.

Again, read the actual NASA report.

The "Ice Extent" is melting from underneath. Don't take my word for it.. read the material

http://www.jpl.nasa.gov/news/news.php...

For example, "A new study by researchers at NASA and the University of California, Irvine, finds a rapidly melting section of the West Antarctic Ice Sheet appears to be in an irreversible state of decline, with nothing to stop the glaciers in this area from melting into the sea.

The study presents multiple lines of evidence, incorporating 40 years of observations that indicate the glaciers in the Amundsen Sea sector of West Antarctica "have passed the point of no return," according to glaciologist and lead author Eric Rignot, of UC Irvine and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, California. The new study has been accepted for publication in the journal Geophysical Research Letters.

These glaciers already contribute significantly to sea level rise, releasing almost as much ice into the ocean annually as the entire Greenland Ice Sheet. They contain enough ice to raise global sea level by 4 feet (1.2 meters) and are melting faster than most scientists had expected. Rignot said these findings will require an upward revision to current predictions of sea level rise."

. . . and so on.

But it's only NASA and the JPL -- their scientists are probably not aware of the dreaded Obama Effect, which explains the tendency of polar glacial ice to melt as the globe's temperature drops.

In other words, polar glacial ice is melting because the earth is cooling.

Makes sense to you, right?

The Obama Effect explains many crazy, right-wingnut fantasies such as this by simply asserting the opposite of whatever President Obama thinks.

The people writing the reports at NASA are hoping to join some of their peers who have got rich off the globl warming hoax. Hansen was a former NASA scientist who got wealthy pumping global warming. Loveland (formerly at NASA) was the global warming guru. He got rich too. Now, at age 92, he has recanted bout the whole hoax.

Try to get it through your thick skull, the globe is not warming. During periods in history when there is high sun spot activity, the temperatures will increase. When there is period of low sun spot activity, the temperatures will decrease. The rest of it is just people trying to make money from the phenomenon.

You have no answer to the NASA report other than to assert that NASA, the JPLab, and UC-Irving are all in it for themselves, trying to get rich off global warming. According to you and your right-wingnut cronies, they're all part of a vast, left-wing global conspiracy waging a war on coal, oil, and poor old natural gas, totally innocent fuels that never, ever hurt anyone, but, rather, serve mankind by faithfully provided the energy to live in the modern world.

So, in addition to not knowing the difference between sea ice and glacial ice, you don't even know the correct names of "left-wing" scientists who, you incorrectly claim, "recanted,"
nor their ages (Lovelock was born is 1919 -- do the math).

You must be using some pretty old fossil fuel industry -sponsored websites.

Lovelock is his name, and he did not recant:

"In his 2009 book, "The Vanishing Face of Gaia", he [Lovelock] rejects scientific modeling that disagrees with the scientific findings that sea levels are rising faster, and Arctic ice is melting faster, than the models predict and he suggests that we may already be beyond the tipping point of terrestrial climate into a permanently hot state. Given these conditions, Lovelock expects human civilization will be hard pressed to survive."

The facts are in, the science is settled, "global warming" is something that feeds the "Alinsky Model" in hopes that we are shamed into relying on the government to decree how we power our lives. Just like our children are being taught that we "slaughtered" the Native Americans, when the reality was that almost 90% of them died of diseases that were brought here from Europe, and they had no immunities for. Much similar to the "Black Plague" in Europe. And the present Native American tribes actually turned down billions of dollars in repatriation for the lands that were taken from them, wanting the land, instead, because they realized the value of building and operating "tax exempt" casinos on the lands they already have. So, all in all, "global warming" and all of the other "bad things" Hussein and his cronies are claiming America has done, and is doing, are all part and parcel of the "Saul Alinsky" playbook in creating a "socialist society" and doing away with the true American values we have held so dear. And just wait, if Hillaryious is elected, she is so endeared to the Alinsky "socialist ideology" after being mentored by him while in college, we'll be relying on the government for every detail of our lives.

Great.

Like the little boy in the crowd, you have the courage of your convictions.

But science is not about "the courage of your convictions." It is about having the courage to alter your convictions in the face of evidence.

That's the problem.

The deniers start with a premise, or conviction, and then search for evidence to back it up. Anything that contradicts their a priori notions is discarded, explained away, rejected.

Science doesn't work that way. It is constantly self-questioning, seeking to know. It is opened-ended, unlike the closed bubble of junk science.

It makes you wonder, with everything mankind does NOT know, why scientists would even tackle the fossil-fuel industry. They must know that coal, gas, and oil, companies are highly profitable; they provide jobs for hundreds of thousands of people who rely on those jobs for their livelihood; these industries are thoroughly ingrained in our physical infrastructure, in our legal and political systems, and, in some cases, in our very culture itself.

In addition to being thoroughly capable of defending themselves, fossil-fuel industries enjoy almost insurmountable public support.

You could almost call attacking fossil-fuel industries, whatever the preponderance of data, a Herculean task, a Sisyphean task.

Surely there are plenty of other questions to deal with, plenty mankind does not know, plenty to give these scientists important work to do.

We have the problem of world hunger to deal with; there are diseases like cancer, and heart disease and diabetes and dozens of others that great minds could be working on. Scientists don't need to make work for themselves; they don't need the issue of climate change to "make their reputations."

Any one of dozens of scientific questions could make their reputations.

And yet the right-wingnuts would have us believe, in all their cynicism, that climate scientists are out to get fossil-fuels because that would put a big old feather in their cap.

So scientists study the issue and gather data and formulate their theses, and the "right" says they're all wrong, and they're all liars, and the emperor has no clothes, because all the right-wingnuts are like the little boy in the crowd, sensible, honest, uncorrupted, and shielded by the courage of their convictions.

But the slogans won't cut childhood asthma rates, or stop the oceans from warming or the glacial ice from melting, or repair the ozone, or mitigate extremes of weather events.

Almost word-for-word Dinesh D'Souza's lines from Megan Kelly's show on Faux last night.

Word for word!

I wondered, was Dinesh referring to the siege of Fort Pitt, in 1763, when the British Army under Lord Jeffrey Amherst infected the besieging Native Americans with smallpox using blankets that had been exposed to the virus, killing much of their population for many years, even after the war ended?

Amherst's letters make clear his intention to wipe out the native population, so the Europeans' complicity in genocide is well established, whatever the method.

You wouldn’t think, five years into the Obama presidency, that so many liberal Americans wouldn’t like America.

A new Pew survey found that 44 percent of Americans don’t often feel pride in being an American, and only 28 percent said that America is the greatest country in the world. Respondents who “often feel proud to be American” were overwhelmingly conservative (from 72 percent to 81 percent, depending on the kind of conservative). A majority (60 percent) of “solid liberals” said they don’t often feel proud to be an American.

The polling data only prove what has been obvious for a while.

Georgia representative John Lewis recently said that “if the Civil Rights Act was before the Congress today, it would not pass, it would probably never make it to the floor for a vote.” Lewis is right. If it came before the Congress today, it wouldn’t pass. You know why? Because we passed it 50 years ago. The GI Bill wouldn’t pass today either, because that was enacted in 1944. If, somehow, we had Jim Crow today, the American people — and Congress — would vote to abolish it in a landslide.
In fairness, Lewis was primarily condemning congressional gridlock, not GOP racism. Primarily.

A legitimate hero of the civil-rights era, Lewis has adopted the liberal habit of suggesting that his political opponents have a burning desire to return to the era of Jim Crow. At the 2012 Democratic convention, for instance, he gave a thundering speech that equated a vote for Mitt Romney with going back to the era of segregation.

Contrary to what you hear daily on MSNBC, Republicans don’t want to force Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, Dr. Ben Carson, Senator Tim Scott, or any other African American to the back of the bus.

Lewis isn’t the only leading Democrat incapable of giving the American people some credit. In the wake of the Supreme Court’s decision in the Hobby Lobby case, Hillary Clinton insisted we are following in the footsteps of anti-democratic Middle Eastern theocracies. According to Clinton, the majority on the court were like Iranian mullahs, behaving “in ways that are disadvantageous to women but which prop up them because of their religion, their sect, their tribe, whatever.” The shocking, inarticulate stupidity of this analysis is outdone only by the stunning ease with which Clinton offered it.

She’s not alone, of course. To listen to some of the hysterical responses to the court’s decision, you’d think the government in Washington is the only thing thwarting the desire of millions of businessmen to drape their female employees in burqas.

Many Americans today feel a sense of dismay and horror as we see our country in a downward spiral; economically, morally, and politically. President Obama's indifferent attitude and the continuous list of scandals and bad policy are leading the country to ruin. As an artist I am reminded of the old saying "Nero fiddled while Rome burned." History believes that Nero himself may have set the great fire that burned a part of Rome during his leadership. Afterwards, he blamed it on the Christians who suffered great persecution under his rule. I see great similarities to what we are experiencing today. Obama fiddled, while the people witnessed the demise of America.

The Obamas have spent over 44 million dollars in taxpayer money on travel and vacations. Some are even calling him the “most well-traveled, expensive” president in our nation’s history.

As Americans head off for the long holiday weekend, let’s take a look back at some of the president’s holiday spending.

Our president vacations a lot — we’re talking $44,351,777.12 worth of “a lot,” with most expenses charged to the American taxpayer.

As of March 2014, Obama has spent more time traveling internationally than any other president, taking 31 trips since assuming office in 2009. The 119 days spent overseas have cost taxpayers millions of dollars.

At the same point in their respective presidencies, George W. Bush had spent 116 days on 28 trips, Bill Clinton had spent 113 days on 27 trips and Ronald Reagan had spent 73 days on just 14 trips.

In 2010, Obama flew aboard Air Force One 172 times, nearly every other day. Just the cost of flying aboard Air Force One to Obama’s hometown of Chicago reportedly hovers around $180,000 per hour.

In addition to all of his international travel, the president spends a significant amount of time traveling with his family. The Obama family has taken vacations to exclusive beaches in New England, private clubs in Key Largo and, of course, luxurious beaches in Hawaii.

According to the government watchdog group Judicial Watch, beginning with the infamous New York “date night,” the Obamas have spent $44,351,777.12 in taxpayer cash on travel expenses.

The actual total cost may be higher, as the White House is not subject to the Freedom of Information Act.

“Here we have a president that gets on the budget line by line, but this apparently doesn’t apply to his travel,” president of Judicial Watch, Tom Fitton, said in an interview with The Daily Caller.

Frequently missing from the data are the costs of housing the first family and staff, costs of prepositioning the Secret Service and their equipment, and other travel expenses such as meals and beverages.

“We’ve got this financial crisis here in Washington and the president and his family need to be more sensitive as to the cost concerned with his travel,” Fitton said. “We are especially concerned about the excessive luxury travel, such as his trip to Hawaii.”

In 2013 alone, President Obama incurred $7,396,531 in flight expenses for his family vacations to Hawaii and Martha’s Vineyard, as well as a trip to California to appear on the Jay Leno show.

“The Obamas are abusing the public trust and the taxpayers with unnecessary luxurious vacations and travel,” Fitton said in a press release. “These staggering costs show why these documents were covered up and we had to sue in federal court to get them. Another transparency fail for the Obama gang.”

My fellow Americans, we are all bit players in the making of a metaphoric slasher movie: Obama Unchained, starring Barack Hussein Obama.

Here is a summary of the movie. It is a heartwarming tale about how the mainstream media and Democratic Party suckered America into electing their extreme far-left dream president – a Trojan Horse in the form of a black man.

Once in the Oval Office, Obama began incrementally implementing his socialist/progressive agenda and iron-fist pressure on Americans to conform. Everyone, including a 175-year-old order of elderly Catholic nuns, was forced to comply with Obama's decreed anti-biblical new moral standards or face termination.

Only donors, labor unions, and favored friends of his royal Obamaness, totaling over 2,000, are unlawfully granted exemptions from his tyrannical overreaches hidden in ObamaCare.

Unchained from pretending to be a moderate to get re-elected, Obama is releasing his judgment and rage upon America, wielding his executive pen-sword, causing a bloody massacre of our economy, national security, world standing, freedoms, liberty, and culture.

Now totally unrestrained, with lawless abandonment, Obama dishes out what he believes is well-deserved revenge on America for her crimes against the rest of the world. Obama is delivering the retribution spoken of by his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, who said, “America's chickens are coming home to roost.”

Pundits say Obama is merely incompetent. They site highly unfavorable approval polling to conclude that Obama's presidency is in deep trouble. Political analysts believe that dismal poll numbers will force Obama to back away from his intensely focused savage attack on America as founded – his vowed fundamental transformation of America. These sycophant, apologist, or naive talking heads are missing the point.

Obama does not give a rat's you-know-what about polling. Nor does he fear lawsuits, Congress, impeachment, or anything else.

Remember Michael Jackson's famous line, “I'm not like other guys”? Obama believes he is not like other presidents. I am Barack Obama, the first black president. I can do whatever, I please and no one is going to stop me. Period!

1. You are correct, that poll, as many other polls, are NOT GOOD, which is the point that I have been trying to make to you. If you can't even admit that a poll which surveys .000004% if the US population isn't the best guage to accurately depict the pulse of an entire country, then there is NO HOPE FOR YOU.
2. Anyone can report it, IF they include all of the details, i.e. the small amount of people polled. Then the viewer can take that poll with a grain of salt.
3. All I know is that YOU were the one posting about this poll on this site, trying to use it to support YOUR opinion, and you didn't give the details of the poll.
4. I am sure that Fox News did cover it and did the same thing that you tried to do with the poll. The hosts might have even applauded after he read the poll results. I know that is how you must have heard about the poll since you have made it clear time and time again, that the only news source that you watch is Fox News. You also made it clear that you would NEVER watch CNN or MSNBC.
5. Obama would rank, in my opinion, as one of the worst presidents ever, behind George W. But since it is a matter of opinions, everyone's rankings would be different. I would also rank this Congress as the absolute worst in history.

C'mon dontbeafool, in No 1, above, who are you referring to? You said "you are correct." Who are you referring to? Me or some other poster?
I never said polls are not good. In post 280, I referred you to the Neilsen ratings. These involve a extremely small number of people yet they make or break multi millions of dollars invested in TV programs. Polls are very important in the age we live in.
"I would also rank this Congress as the absolute worst in history." You have got to be kidding. Obama will not work side by side with Congress. How many times has he said "I have a pen and a phone." It's his way or the highway.

Whether it was 1400, 400, or 4, I agree with the poll. The Liar is the worst POTUS, while Reagan was the best. I even give the nod to Bill Clinton as second best.
You are right, I will never ever watch MSNBC or CNN because they are too biased. However MSNBC does have a web-site that I check in on routinely. This is where I found the results of the poll. I have no idea if Fox covered it on TV, but I assume they did as they had it on their web-site.

He saved GM and they cried, he has turned the economy around and they're still crying.
They talk about Benghazi as if Obama invaded it himself. Kind of like when we invaded Iraq looking for Weapons of Mass Destruction. We lost FOUR Americans in Iraq compared to over FOUR THOUSAND in Iraq.

You could solve the immigration issue in 5 minutes by arresting, fining and taking away the business license of the person and company hiring them. Problem solved!! The way the GAME is played now, Immigration Officers conduct a sweep of a business, roundup a hundred or so illegals, house them and feed them, give them a hearing and then deport them. The business that was raided simply replaces them with more illegals the very next day. It is the Neo-Commies who want them here to drive down wages and bust unions, the Dumbocrats want them here because if they can get them legal they know they'll vote Dumbocrat.

In 1971 a communist/marxist named Saul Alinsky authored a book "Rules for Radicals." It was essentially a book for community organizers, and readers learned that the best way to retaliate for not attaining economic equality was to destroy the country's economy by overwhelming with chaos and claims for social entilements. This world, in his scheme, would force an adoption of socialism and a redistribution of wealth.

In a local newspaper, this excerpt appeared:

And we are seeing a similar exodus of wealth from the USA. Never has more money and wealth moved offshore to escape an expanding socialist USA. The basic crux of the problem is the lack of higher education in the USA Most universites and colleges in the USA have adopted ultra-liberal teachings similiar to those of Alinsky.They seek social engineering to eliminate poverty, but end up creating greater poverty like that in Cuba or Venzuela. They lack the basic common sense or intellectual capability to see the basic facts in front of them. we gave the youths the vote, and now they are using it to destroy the USA with idealistic and impossible scenarios.

So, there you see it Ytown. That's why I keep saying "you have no idea what's going on Ytown."
By the way, both Obama and Hillary Clinton were students of Alinsky's teachings.

dontbeafool is another one. Evidently he just doesn't understand polls.
If he would have read post 280, about Neilsen, & their rating system, just maybe he would have understood a little more about polls.
A neighbor of mine, down the street, had 3 Neilsen guys come into his home and wire 3 TV's to their system. These guys were in this home for 5 hours hooking up wires to the TV's & put a substantial box on top of the main TV, so every program this neighbor watched was recorded & sent to a regional office of Neilsen.
If, for example, this neighbor had people over for the Super Bowl, he had to record, on the box, wether guests were either male or female and their ages. I don't exactly remember the number of people this one neighbor said he represented, but the figure was in the hundreds of thousands, so overwehlmingly polls are very accurate. Especially Neilsen. TV programs costing millions of dollars are rated by Neilsen by a very small percentage of people, but they work just like most other polls.
So, dont be a fool, if the poll favors you, you like it. If the poll doesn't favor you, you don't like it

Feds to pay for $50 million resort for illegal alien teens
By Thomas Lifson
Do you wish you were able to afford to go to a resort with pool, sauna, tennis courts, exercise room, sauna, steam room, racketball courts, and all the trimmings? Too bad you aren’t an illegal alien teenager, maybe a member of MS 13. Because your tax dollars (pay up, sucker!) are going to pay for a $50 million magnet resort for them. Kristinn Taylor writes at Gateway Pundit:

The Obama administration has awarded a $50 million contract to a charitable group to buy a Texas resort hotel and transform it in to a 600 bed facility for juvenile illegal aliens.

The beautiful Palm Aire resort and hotel has an indoor Olympic sized pool and an outdoor pool. Free Wi-Fi and cable TV are included in the simply decorated guest rooms.

The Palm Aire Hotel and Suites is set to be sold to Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) operating under a federal contract, pending local government approval, according to reports from Weslaco, Texas where the hotel is located. Weslaco is a few miles north of the Rio Grande in Hidalgo County.

The resort hotel for illegal alien children is reportedly the ‘first in the nation’.

I think island mike is the liar. Please read the following:

We’ve been told by the Democrat Media Complex that WMDs didn’t exist in Iraq, and that George W. Bush started the war against Saddam Hussein based on that false assumption.

Pelosi, for example, said that, “Bush led us into the war on the basis of unproven assertions.” And, let us not forget the moronic Democrat Party meme, “Bush lied, Americans died.”

How could the ISIS terrorists have taken over Saddam’s WMD facility if WMD’s never existed?

Like it or not, George W. Bush has now officially and forever been completely vindicated.

Although numerous Democrats, including Bill Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Al Gore, John Edwards, John Kerry, Nancy Pelosi, and others, claimed from 1998 through 2002 that Hussein had WMDs, they labeled President George W. Bush a liar after the war in Iraq began for having made similar statements, despite the fact that the Democrats overwhelmingly voted for the war.
Every Democrat, including Obama, Reid, Pelosi and Wasserman-Shultz, who called George W. Bush a liar and every other hateful name in the book, including every MSNBC host, owes him a huge apology.

Democrats were the ones who wanted to go into Iraq, beginning with Bill Clinton. They believed there were Weapons of Mass Destruction.

They also weren’t lied to by George W. Bush, they were told exactly what was going on.

When George W. Bush finally went into Iraq, he had the support of the majority of Congress and public opinion was with him. He had formed a coalition of nations to fight Saddam.

Everyone thought Saddam had WMDs. The world thought he had WMDs.

Here are the Democrats who thought Saddam had WMDs, which it turns out he did have, and they were privy to the exact intelligence reports that Bush was privy to:

YEAs — 77
Bayh (D-IN)
Biden (D-DE)
Breaux (D-LA)
Cantwell (D-WA)
Carnahan (D-MO)

Miller (D-GA)
Nelson (D-FL)
Nelson (D-NE)
Reid (D-NV)
Rockefeller (D-WV)
Schumer (D-NY)
Torricelli (D-NJ)

When we went into Iraq, there were no great stockpiles of WMDs but the media told the public that there were no WMDs. One thing people don’t realize is that WMDs can be put in suitcases and shipped out, depending on what they are.

The issue of whether there were WMDs was used to demonize Bush and Democrats wanted out. Democrats began to rewrite history, pretending they never supported the war or they were lied to by Bush.

A Tale of Two Patients

Two patients limp into two different medical clinics with the same
complaint. Both have trouble walking and appear to require hip surgery.

The FIRST patient is examined within the hour, is x-rayed the same day
and has a time booked for surgery the following week.

The SECOND sees his family doctor after waiting 3 weeks for an
appointment, then waits 8 weeks to see a specialist, then gets an x-ray,
which isn't reviewed for another week and finally has his surgery
scheduled for 6 months from then pending the review boards decision on
his age and remaining value to society.
Why the different treatment for the two patients?

The FIRST is a Golden Retriever taken to a vet.

The SECOND is a senior citizen on Obamacare...

The Attorney General was slapped with contempt of Congress. A key figure in the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner, has pled the Fifth.

The House of Representatives is getting ready to sue Obama for failing to obey the Constitution’s separation of powers. The President’s efforts to ignore the Constitution have been met with an extraordinary number of Supreme Court rebuffs, many of which were unanimous.

How bad is Obama’s situation at present? One indication is the way the news media has been slowly, but steadily falling out of love with him. As Paul Bedard noted recently in the Washington Examiner, “In unprecedented criticism of the White House, 38 journalism groups have assailed the president’s team for censoring media coverage, limiting access to top officials, and overall ‘politically-driven suppression of the news.”

David Cuiller, president of the Society of Professional Journalists, said, “It is up to journalists—and citizens—to push back against this force. Hard!” As a member of the SPJ since the 1970s this is a welcome expression of indignation, but it is also been occurring across a full spectrum of Republicans, Democrats, and independent voters as various Obama policies have negatively affected them.

QUOTE OF THE CENTURY. Some possess the vocabulary to sum things up in a way we can understand. This is a quote from the former premier of the Czwch Repiblic. Obviously, we we have a lot of work to do to repair the damage they have done. "The danger to America is not Barack Obama but a citizenry capable of entrusting a man like him with the presidency. It will be far easier to limit and undo the follies of an Obama presidency than to restore the necessary common sense and good judgment to a depraved electorate willing to have such a man for their president. The problen is much deeper and far more serious than Mr Obama, who is a more sympton of what ails America. Blaming the prince of the fools should not blind anyone to the vast confereracy of the fools that made him their prince. The Republic can survive a multitude of fools such as those who made him their pesident.." VACLAV KLAUS

Hamas builds tunnels and rockets to kidnap and kill Jews, has a charter that calls for the killing of all Jews wherever they live, launches missile attacks against Israelis, uses UNWRA facilities to hide rockets, spreads anti-Semitism and claims of war crimes against Israel, has become unpopular in Gaza, and is losing support in Egypt and the Arab world.

And now the US wants to reward and rescue them with a vast influx of money? They will use that time and money to develop more accurate and deadly missiles, etc. .

It was five years ago this summer that 20,000 white-collar nonunion workers from Delphi (a leading auto parts company spun off from GM in 1999) had their pensions sabotaged as part of a rotten White House deal with Big Labor. Two court rulings this summer have given the victims hope. Their plight must not be forgotten.

Remember when Washington rushed to nationalize the U.S. auto industry with $80 billion in taxpayer “rescue” funds and avoid contested court termination proceedings? Behind closed doors, the Obama administration’s auto team schemed with labor bosses from United Automobile Workers to preserve union members’ costly pension funds by screwing over their nonunion counterparts.

The federally backed Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp., which had the fiduciary duty to represent the best interests of all the Delphi workers, helped sacrifice the nonunion employees at the UAW altar. While union pensions were topped up with tax-subsidized auto bailout funds, nonunion pensioners were left high and dry.

In addition, the nonunion pensioners lost all of their health and life insurance benefits. The abused workers — most from hard-hit northeast Ohio, Michigan and neighboring states — had devoted decades of their lives as secretaries, technicians, engineers and sales employees at Delphi/GM. Some workers saw up to 70 percent of their pensions vanish.

Last year, the Office of the Special Inspector General for the Troubled Asset Relief Program confirmed what Delphi workers maintained from the start: They were victimized because, in the words of the IG, they had “no leverage.” No crony ties. No deep pockets. No legal representation during President Obama’s closed-door negotiations with Big Labor donors.

As GOP Rep. Mike Turner put it, the IG report gave lie to the White House claim that it did not influence the bankruptcy process. “The administration thwarted the bankruptcy process for a politically expedient outcome,” Turner said. Treasury used “their influence to make certain that the outcome was politically desirable to the administration, and the Delphi salaried retirees (lost) their pensions.”

The Delphi workers have fought for five cruel years to force Treasury and the PBGC to disclose the full truth. The scheming feds have defied the workers’ public records requests and withheld more than 7,000 pages of critical emails and documents from the workers, who’ve been mired in time-consuming litigation that has cost millions of dollars.
