Suddenly liberals are comfortable with monarchical war-making powers.

 

 

 

 

 

British prime minister David Cameron has recalled Parliament from summer vacation for a special session on Thursday, where there will be “a clear government motion and vote on the United Kingdom’s response to chemical weapons attacks,” Cameron promised on Twitter.

Martha’s Vineyard: ‘Birthplace of the Man from Nowhere’s Presidency’

August 15, 2013 1 comment

By Judi McLeod Thursday, August 15, 2013

 

 

 

 

 

Like a homing pigeon, President Barack Obama always returns to Martha’s Vineyard.

 

There since Saturday, Obama vacationed in Martha’s Vineyard in 2009, 2010 and 2011, missing only last summer when he was running for re-election.

 

But is it really the lure of the ocean or wanting to get in golfing and family time that keeps bringing him back?

 

It now turns out that ‘The Presidency of the Man from Nowhere’ both began and continues in Martha’s Vineyard, where uncrowned ‘Queen Behind the Oval officeValerie Jarrett is a longtime summer resident.

 

Senior Obama advisor and Assistant to the President for Public Engagement and Intergovernmental Affairs, Jarrett, who receives full-time Secret Service Protection, has 24-7 access to Obama White House living quarters, making the Martha’s Vineyard getaways for the two all the more curious.

Cue up the indignant reactions: President Barack Obama and his family are about to go on an eight-day vacation on the Massachusetts island of Martha’s Vineyard, an elite playground for the East Coast wealthy set.

 

Often the criticism of a president’s vacation is partisan in nature, which is why White House spokesman Jay Carney dismissed a question about it when asked whether Obama’s vacation was too extravagant.

 

“I would just check what they said six years ago,” he said, referring to a period when a Republican president, George W. Bush, was in office.

Sarah Palin: I was forbidden to tell the truth about Obama in 2008 – BizPac Review

July 27, 2013 1 comment

Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin didn’t mince words about President Obama and White House press secretary Jay Carney, calling the scandals plaguing the administration “phony.”

Appearing in “On the Record” with Greta Van Susteren on Friday, Palin questioned which scandals the pair consider phony, saying it isn’t a coincidence that both Obama and Carney are using the term.

“He’s trying to run out the clock,” Palin said. It’s like a stall play in a basketball game. “It’s cowardly, and nothing good is going to come from this.”

Palin said that during her 2008 vice presidential run, she was banned from talking about Obama’s relationship with the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Bill Ayers and the then-senator’s lack of knowledge or job experience.

When a Coup isn’t a Coup…..

When a Coup isn’t a Coup

 

Townhall.com ^ | July 14, 2013 | Paul Greenberg

 

Posted on Sunday, July 14, 2013 1:57:32 PM by Kaslin

 

Riddle: When is a military coup not a military coup? Answer: When it suits this country’s interests to call it something else.

 

 

 

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the...

English: Barack Obama delivers a speech at the University of Southern California (Video of the speech) (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

 

 

 

It seems the law, which has a way of upsetting the best laid plans of mice and American administrations, bars foreign aid to any countries “whose duly elected leader of government is deposed by decree or military coup,” which would seem a fair enough summary of what has just happened in Egypt.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But cutting off the $1.5 billion a year that Congress authorizes for that country would only add folly to the turmoil that now threatens a key American ally, or at least a sometime ally but always a central nation in the Middle East. Cut off American aid to it at this crucial juncture? It’s hard to think of a better way to undermine the one institution, the Egyptian military, that now stands between that nation and further chaos.

 

Therefore a coup isn’t a coup. Not in the curious tongue that White House press secretaries must master if they’re going to deny the obvious without cracking a smile. Richard Nixon had his Ron Ziegler, and now Barack Obama has his Jay Carney. Which is why poor Mr. Carney had to deny that the military coup in Egypt was a military coup in Egypt.

 

O-o-o-kay. At least poor Jay Carney (Poor is rapidly becoming his first name) did offer a hint about why so obvious a falsehood had to be trotted out. Suspending aid to Egypt, he said, “would not be in our best interest.” At last, a glimmer of truth peeks through the clouds of doublespeak. Give the man at least that much credit.

Rather than play these games with the national interest, not to mention truth, it would be better to change the law to give a president the kind of leeway he needs when a blanket prohibition like this one prevents him from making a candid exception to it. And doing what is best for the country.

 

rprprprp

Moral of the story: A good rule in general doesn’t always have good results when it’s applied in particular circumstances — like Egypt’s just now.

 

But changing the law in order to give the chief executive the flexibility he needs in enforcing it might be impractical at such short notice. And for good or ill, Congress has always been jealous of its powers. So word games must be played, and the law skirted rather than amended. Even though simply changing the law would be the more responsible, and candid, course. But till it’s changed, subterfuges like Poor Jay Carney’s will be invited.

America’s cry for help lost in the White Noise….. “…..If there is one thing all should have learned since 2009 it is that nothing is changing to relieve America from the clear and present danger that is Barack Hussein Obama….The only outrage seen from Obama these past four and a half years is the one he fosters for America…

…..If there is one thing all should have learned since 2009 it is that nothing is changing to relieve America from the clear and present danger that is Barack Hussein Obama.

No matter the talking heads, no matter the media, no matter the wailing politicians making pretty speeches, the Obama regime forges ahead, killing off all individual rights and freedoms in its obsession for the Fundamental Transformation of America.

By Judi McLeod Full Story

Every new outrage from the regime falls into the same pattern. Panel debates by televised talking heads, politicians of all political stripes registering their outrage, sound bites of Obama’s droning voice played over and over again, ad nauseum.

No matter what Obama and the collectivists do, it seems there are no new member’s bills, no discernible line of action other than white noise, and talk, talk, talk.

Tyranny, the same kind that kept the people of the former Soviet Union and environs in the stranglehold of communism for 70 years, is making its way—unhampered—through the USA.

English: Jay Carney, American journalist

The Obama administration started off by identifying Tea Partiers, returning war vets and Christians as terrorists—and got away with it.

Now news reporters like James Rosen, a Fox News correspondent has been openly branded a “possible criminal co-conspirator” for his alleged role in publishing sensitive security information.

The only difference between soft tyranny and hard tyrannies is that in the latter, those deemed enemies of the state are jailed and killed. But a cursory read through history teaches that hard tyrannies usually got their start as soft ones.

He’s right, it isn’t a scandal. A scandal is something to read in the supermarket tabloid for entertainment value. No, this is a full-blown conspiracy to use the full weight and power of all federal agencies to go after and destroy all political opponents of “the one” Barack Hussein Obama.No matter who you ask about what in this administration, you get the same answer…. “We know nothing!”

A reporter from Colorado asked White House spokesman Jay Carney how President Obama justifies “lavish vacations” and golf trips, and whether he plans to cut back:

 

(NB: video at link)

 

Bringing up high unemployment in minority communities and government furloughs, the reporter started, as well as “millions of Americans unemployed, and family budgets that have been cut. How does the president justify lavish vacations and a golf trip to Florida at taxpayer expense? And does he plan to cut back on his travels?”

 

Carney responded, “I can tell you that this president is focused every day on policies that create economic growth and help advance job creation.”

In an “exclusive” interview with ABC, Barack Obama on Wednesday dodged responsibility for the ending of White House tours, stating, “I have to say this was not a decision that went up to the White House.” The President placed the responsibility on the Secret Service. Later in the day, press secretary Jay Carney contradicted Obama and admitted that the White House cancelled the tours. ABC’s World News on Wednesday and Good Morning America on Thursday didn’t bother to cover updates on Obama’s denial.

There is a rule in Politics 2013 that’s evident in the flap about a White House aide’s maybe threatening or not threatening Washington Post veteran reporter Bob Woodward. The rule: The more superficial the brouhaha the bigger its impact.

 

obampoint

What public figures say is more important than what they do, because cable TV and political blogs can cover a mud fight more cheaply and more easily than they can a real story.

 

Quick synopsis: Woodward has reported doggedly on the White House’s role in putting “sequester” cuts — $85 billion this year — in the 2011 Budget Control Act. Last week, as Woodward was writing that President Barack Obama was moving the goal post in negotiations on those cuts, a White House aide yelled at him on the phone for a half-hour, Woodward says.

 

Economic adviser Gene Sperling later sent him an email to apologize for raising his voice. Sperling also wrote, “I think you will regret staking out that claim.”

Jon Hammar saw combat in Iraq and Afghanistan, but his most brutal foreign experience was in Mexico. Last August, the 27-year-old former Marine corporal was incarcerated by Mexican authorities in Matamoros for trying to register an antique shotgun with customs agents. Foolishly, Cpl. Hammar followed instructions given to him by U.S. Border Patrol agents in Brownsville, Texas.

He registered the gun with them and brought the paperwork to the Mexicans to get their stamp of approval in order to carry the gun through the country. Hammar and a friend were driving a Winnebago, hoping to have a nice surfing vacation with some hunting on the side.

 

Even though the Mexican authorities clearly saw that Hammar was trying to follow the rules, they seized the Winnebago and locked the corporal up in the notoriously corrupt CEDES prison anyway. There he was threatened by other inmates and told by guards that he could buy his way out of the hellhole by paying money to the “right people.”

Determined not to let the senseless murder of at least 20 young schoolchildren and six adults by a madman last Friday in Connecticut go to waste, the nation’s Demagogue-in-Chief is taking aim at the Second Amendment by urging a reinstatement of the useless federal Assault Weapons Ban.

 

The Assault Weapons Ban, enacted during the Clinton era, prohibited civilian use of specific semi-automatic firearms that politicians arbitrarily deemed “assault weapons” for superficial reasons largely unrelated to how they operate. As Daniel Greenfield wisely put it, an assault rifle “is some sort of mysterious weapon forged in the fires of hell solely for the purpose of murdering people.” The ban, which had no measurable impact on crime, expired in 2004 and attempts to revive the nebulous law have failed so far.

Q: At Benghazi? What happened at Benghazi –

MR. CARNEY: We certainly don’t know. We don’t know otherwise. We have no information to suggest that it was a preplanned attack. The unrest we’ve seen around the region has been in reaction to a video that Muslims, many Muslims find offensive.

MR. CARNEY: Look, it’s not an assumption –

 

Q: Because there are administration officials who don’t — who dispute that, who say that it looks like this was something other than a protest.

 

MR. CARNEY: I think there has been news reports on this, Jake, even in the press, which some of it has been speculative. What I’m telling you is this is under investigation. The unrest around the region has been in response to this video…Jake, again, what we have seen is unrest around the region in response to a video that Muslims find offensive, many Muslims find offensive. We have seen incidents like this in the past, in reaction to other actions — cartoons and other actions that have been taken, that have been — have led to protests and violence in the region.

Obama said that he has signed an Executive Order voiding the U.S. Constitution. “We need to move forward. We need change.”

Obama said he has already drafted a new constitution and that Americans “will love what I came up with.” Insiders say that Obama is keeping a lot of old elements from the original constitution “he’s just making it better, bringing it into the 21st century,” said White House Spokesman, Jay Carney………….

New Obama Admin Claim: Marines Couldn’t Have Stopped Consulate Assault

September 24, 2012 Leave a comment

 

First Romney, then the You Tube clip, now the Marines are to blame? The Obama administration‘s shifting claims on what took place in Benghazi, Libya on 9/11 became more defiant yesterday when unnamed officials suggested that no amount of security would have mattered in Libya, not even a detachment of US Marines.

 

This came on the same day the administration also admitted the assault was a terror attack not a protest gone wrong.

The claim came as part of an investigative report by CNN. Unnamed officials described a pattern of previous attacks in Benghazi as “Stand-off attacks with no follow up.”

If you plan to vote for Obama in the 2012 elections, you have identified yourself as being in favor of ending the United States of America and of willingly accepting your position as one of Obama’s slaves.

Rush: Is This America?

September 22, 2012 3 comments

BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

 

RUSH: Folks, have you seen either the video or the still photo of the filmmaker being rounded up at 1:40 a.m. outside his house in Southern California? I forget the name of the town, doesn’t matter. The sheriff’s department taking him in, apparently on a parole violation, and of course the regime got everything they wanted out of this.

They got the guy rounded up. He was wearing a cap low on his head and a towel, a bath towel around his neck and dark glasses. He did not want to be seen. He didn’t want to be recognized. I looked at that, honestly, folks, I looked at that, and I said, “Oh, my God, what has happened to our country?”

Last Thursday and Friday we’re sitting here making jokes as the regime pitifully and pathetically tries to blame an outbreak of violence all around the Middle East on this guy, on a YouTube video that nobody saw other than 12 people at a screening in June. And of course Mrs. Clinton’s out there trumpeting this. Jay Carney said, (imitating Carney) “Of course this is no protest against the US or US policy. It’s simply the video.” It was ridiculous. It was laughably ridiculous.

In context of the “mounting pressure” for Mitt Romney to provide more tax and employment records, a reporter recently asked White House Press Secretary Jay Carney whether President Obama would set an example in transparency and release some of his records that critics have asked for. That question was fingernails on the chalkboard to Carney.

WASHINGTON – MAY 04: White House Press Secretary Jay Carney speaks during a daily press briefing at the White House Briefing Room May 4, 2011 in Washington, DC. Carney said President Barack Obama has made a decision not to release the photo of the death of Osama Bin Laden citing it would create national security risk. (Image credit: Getty Images via @daylife)

According to the Times, Carney told Michael Clemente, Fox News’ senior vice president for news, that the video had crossed the line even for “Fox & Friends,” the morning show where it aired. Two unnamed Democrats reportedly told the newspaper about the call, described as a “private conversation.”

As The Blaze previously reported, the four-minute clip featured a series of “then and now” comparisons, including the national debt, jobless rate and gas prices. It was met with heavy criticism from both sides of the political spectrum: Media Matters said it “crossed a new ethical line” while Hot Air’s Ed Morrissey questioned whether “a news organization [should] produce and publish attack ads like this?”

Fox News Executive Vice President for Programming Bill Shine ultimately disavowed the video, which has been pulled from Fox’s website.

The President Flouts The Law By Ed Rogers

Apparently, there are no limits to what the president will do to get himself reelected. There is evidence that he will manipulate the law in favor of pet causes and supporters, as in the case of Solyndra.

His administration might be guilty of breaking the law, as shown by the leaks of classified national security information. And now, President Obama holds himself above the law on immigration.

 

Today’s executive order, granting work permits and immunity from deportation to young illegal immigrants, is not an example of the president using his authority; it’s a scandal involving the president performing a selfish act in furtherance of currying favor with a special-interest group.
