Obama The Lyin’ Hearted

Obama vs the Crusaders“White House aides are still trying to explain President Obama’s controversial prayer breakfast speech after he reminded Christians that they ‘committed terrible deeds in the name of Christ.'” Breitbart

Not much explanation needed.  The President of the United States is either a Muslim or the best imitation anyone’s ever seen of one.

Obama: Cuba, Si! America, NO!

A Very Obama Christmas

“[Castro] has been a mythological figure to the left-wing press since the 1950s. For 40 years they’ve chosen to ignore the repressive nature of this Stalinist regime that has done so much to try to harm America.” – Brent Bozell

“Obama’s dirty deal with Raul [Castro] will make the worst president in American history Castro’s new best friend … This was not a prisoner exchange. This was a Communist bailout …  The Castro regime is on its last legs. Its sponsors in Moscow and Caracas are going bankrupt due to failing energy prices. The last hope of the Butcher of Havana was a bailout from Washington D.C.  And that’s exactly what Obama gave him.Daniel Greenfield

“Obama is a tyrant the same way FDR was a tyrant. He has a view of presidential power that states: the government is in control of the country, and the president is in charge of the government. He’s taken an imperial view of the presidency.” – David Mamet

Who knows, maybe the old Soviet Union will make a comeback and Obama can re-establish diplomatic relations with them too.  First Fidel, then the heirs of ol’ Nick Kruschchev, then missiles aimed at Miami.  What the heck, he’s already helping the Iranians aim theirs.

Cuba - Branco cartoonOur befuddled media mavens, ideological descendants of the same ’50s scriveners who refused to admit that Castro was a commie until he admitted it himself, are naturally wetting their “unbiased” pink panties over Obama’s Cuban initiative. They, of course, are the same noisome crew who crowed “We’re All Socialists Now!” in 2009, as Red Barry prepared to boldly go where no U.S. president had gone before — on his first global apology tour.  Six years later, with an unbroken string of domestic and foreign policy disasters on the presidential rap sheet, you’d think they’d know better than to continue to put their faith in the man who handed much of the Middle East over to a gang of crucifixated, decapitating goat molesters, unilaterally laid a welcome mat over our southern border, refused to enforce any law he found ideologically suspect, and ran our already untenable national debt up by $7 trillion or so dollars.  Which is a lot of moola, even if a buck today will only buy you what 4 cents did in 1914.

Unless you like overpriced cigars, this is bound to be a bad deal for Americans.

The GOP Takes A Dive

Christmas Turkey

Boehner and Obama Join to Pass Bill Funding Obamacare and Amnesty

“John Boehner has just squandered the election results before the Republicans even are sworn in.” Rush Limbaugh

“$2.5 billion for illegal immigrants and Obamacare is funded through the fiscal year, that’s a conservative speaker? I don’t think so. It’s a sad day that John Boehner doesn’t realize that there was an election … he is everything that’s wrong with Washington. He’s a Democratic Party-lite … He should not be the speaker. He should be replaced.” Sean Hannity

“I think he ought to be able to pick up some Democratic votes for speaker this time.” Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-Texas)

Barack Obama might consider John Boehner to be his own personal Santa Claus, but for those folks who believe that amnesty and Obamacare are roughly as desirable as an outbreak of herpes in a nunnery — in other words, most of America — the House Weeper is the Grinch who stole Christmas. 

SelloutsThe Obama/Boehner bill is a piece of pork-laden profligacy so atrocious that even a pair of demented hard-core leftists like Nancy Pelosi and the Cherokee Bolshevik from Massachusetts opposed it — and anytime a statist duo like that turns its back on a trillion-plus dollars in proposed federal spending, you know something stinks worse than a road-killed polecat on the 4th of July.  Pelosi and Red Lizzie Warren, of course, are never against spending per se, just on who is permitted to do it. This places them, for once, on the same side of the wire as El Rushbo:

[Campaign finance] limits have practically been obliterated, which means that corporate donors can just start giving left and right. It used to be a limit of $37,000. Now it’s $737,000, something. It’s incredible. But the point of it, do you know why it’s in there? You know why? The Republicans put it in. You know why it’s in there, folks? This is how corporate America’s gonna defeat the Tea Party … it’s a Republican establishment ploy that kind of dovetails nicely with Obama sicking the IRS on the Tea Party to basically eliminate them as a viable threat by relaxing a registration in Dodd-Frank that pretty much permits corporations to spend any kind of money they want on politics … Obama and John Boehner want a bill that the bases of their respective parties reject.

Red Liz, on the other hand, has built a career on bashing Wall Street, a pastime popular since the halcyon days of old Jay Gould (“I can hire one-half of the working class to kill the other half.”).  Not that some of those sticky-fingered stock swindlers and felonious financiers don’t deserve a decent bashing now and again. But, just as not every Democrat is a communist agent (there’s probably one or two socialists), not everyone in the financial markets makes their living by stealing bread from the mouths of widows, orphans, and disabled war veterans.  In fact, without Wall Street, America might well be Mexico without the high standard of living.  In which case, we’d all be sneaking across their border.

Meanwhile, Boehner-clone Mitch McConnell and the beady-eyed pickpocket, Harry Reid,  have professed surprise that Ted Cruz and Mike Lee are holding up the vote on the Cromnibus in the Senate:

 […] the two Republican lawmakers demanded a vote on a proposal to cut funds from the bill that could be used to implement President Obama’s new immigration policy, ending any chance the measure could clear the Senate and be sent to the White House with a minimum of fuss … Senate Republican leaders have pledged to challenge Obama’s immigration policy early in the new year, after the GOP takes control of the Senate. But Cruz suggested they shouldn’t be entirely trusted to keep their pledge. “We will learn soon enough if those statements are genuine and sincere,” he said, in a clear reference to Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell and Speaker John Boehner.

Why in the world would Ted think that?  Maybe because every time McConnell and Boehner enter the ring, they throw up their hands and holler “NO MAS!” before the bell sounds for Round One.

Season’s Beatings

Indian Agent

“Unlike earlier immigrants who came to our shores for religious freedom, freedom from political oppression, or for jobs, we now have poorly educated, low-skill immigrants who have chosen to snub their noses at the U.S. immigration laws and come in illegally to receive billions in U.S. entitlements…” Carole Hornsby Haynes

“The man who will oversee President Obama’s new temporary amnesty said Tuesday that part of the reason for the program was to get the illegal immigrants working on the books, making it economically impossible for them ever to be deported by a future president.”Stephen Dinan

Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said Tuesday morning that the Democrats’ key to success in 2016 is to “embrace” the very same government that a majority of Americans utterly loathe. Red Alert Politics

“Now, does that mean everybody is going to listen to me on the other side? Not necessarily. They’re pretty sure I’m an illegal immigrant.” Barack Obama

__________

Lizzie Warren, that erstwhile Cherokee from Harvard U, may be an ersatz Indian, but her harebrained politics are only too real. And, since she’s a natural-born lefty, she won’t have to worry when Obama replaces his domestic opponents with undocumented Democrats from Mumbai and Mexico, a process that’s well underway, aided and abetted by the very Republicans the American people elected to stop it.

Right after Obama’s executive amnesty announcement, the White House confirmed to the Washington Post that illegal aliens who get amnesty from Obama—paid for by Boehner, and any Republican who votes for this omnibus bill—will have access to Social Security benefits. (Breitbart)

Actually, House Speaker Boehner and his Congressional co-conspirators won’t be paying one thin dime.  The amnesty tab, like the invoice for Obamacare, will be picked up by the bleeding taxpayer, assuming he has any flesh on his bones after his “representatives” get done flogging him. Happy Holidays!

TrollSpeaking of the winter celebration whose Name-May-No-Longer-Be-Uttered, it appears that our less-than-American President is — Fa la la la la, la la la la — trolling the ancient Yuletide Carol for partisan purposes.  And he’s mangling the story of the Nativity in order to justify by Scripture what he cannot justify by the Constitution:

Obama was on the road quoting the Bible again. This time he was equating Mary and Joseph to illegal aliens and strangers.

Liberals love to quote the Bible when it suits them. They denounce the Bible because of its very clear stand against same-sex sexuality, but claim that it teaches a form of economic socialism, and in that case, we should follow it. Every Christmas season, liberals make some socialistic appeal to Scripture in an attempt to support their arguments for bigger government. (Obama Says Christmas Story is About Illegal Aliens)

Next thing ya know, he’ll be donning his gay apparel and telling us that the three wise men were really Marx, Lenin, and Billy Ayers.  These days, there’s more Red in the White House than in Rudolph the Reindeer’s nose.

The Decline And Fall Of The Arkansas Battleaxe

Madam President

“It is said that power corrupts, but actually it’s more true that power attracts the corruptible. The sane are usually attracted by other things than power.” – David Brin

“She was an unethical, dishonest lawyer. She conspired to violate the Constitution, the rules of the House, the rules of the committee and the rules of confidentiality.” – Jerry Zeifman, Retired General Counsel & Chief of Staff of the House Judiciary Committee

“When in public, Hillary smiles and acts graciously. As soon as the cameras are gone, her angry personality, nastiness, and imperiousness become evident.” Ronald Kessler

“Hillary, like her husband, has a mouth that would embarrass a sailor.” – Capitol Hill Blue

“F**k off! It’s enough I have to see you shit-kickers every day, I’m not going to talk to you too!! Just do your G*damn job and keep your mouth shut.” Hillary to her State Trooper body guards after one of them greeted her with “Good Morning”

“The Clinton mode of production, then, is running for office or serving in office. That is the material basis for the Clinton Foundation and the Clinton lifestyle and the whole Clinton institutional structure. In order to keep this mode of production from breaking down, the Clintons–one of them, at any rate–must be at least potentially in the running for a powerful office at all times.” A Marxist Analysis of Hillary

“The idea of a man-hating, pants-suit-wearing, oyster-gobbling woman sitting in the Ovary Office should make any right-thinking American male’s testicles retreat slightly up into his body.” —  Jim Goad

__________

Hillary Clinton, former Arkansas cattle futures baroness, self-proclaimed co-president during the randy reign of her philandering spouse, carpet-bagging U.S. senator, faux New York Yankees fan, and the Secretary of State who engineered both the infamous Russian “reset” and the deadly blunders of Benghazi, is the likely choice to replace the current Jackass in the White House when said Jackass’s term of office blessedly expires.  But the misguided socialists who believe this overrated battleaxe possesses the makings of a chief executive must have their skulls full of top-shelf ganja. Hillary’s major attributes have always been a vindictive nature, a foul mouth, a ruthless disregard for the U.S. Constitution, and a dearth of testicles. The latter qualifies her only as the standard bearer for America’s disgruntled legions of lesbians and feminists, while the former identifies her as a modern Democrat.  Come to think of it, so does the latter.  As for the persistent rumors regarding Hillary’s own amorous preferences,

would it really matter if she were, to put it in the vulgar argot of sailors and longshoremen, a clam-licker? Not as much as one might think … In the sake of fairness and accuracy and discretion, it is first prudent that I review whatever evidence may exist that Clinton has indulged in rank carnality with members of her own gender … compelling is Clinton’s lifelong predilection for wearing pants suits. No heterosexual woman in her right mind would be caught dead wearing those things in public.

The rumor-mongers suggest that Clinton first developed a taste for vagina during her radical younger days at Wellesley College, where she roomed for four solid years with confirmed lesbian Eldie Acheson, a woman whose face is butch enough to saw lumber. And this photo of a young, pre-Clinton-era Hillary Rodham standing alongside college president Ruth Adams is more lesbian than a pile of Ellen Degeneres’s unwashed laundry. (Does it Matter if Hillary Clinton Is a Carpet-Muncher?)

Hillary reset button cartoonSince being given the bum’s rush by Premier Obama, the Arkansas Traveler has occupied her leisure time by fabricating a memoir (most copies of which were remaindered the same week they went on sale), and in obsessively padding an already pudgy bank account by speaking at a number of public universities for around $300 grand a pop.  All in the name of charity, of course — hers:

Clinton has attempted to tamp down the uproar over her greedy cash grab from a number of public universities with the claim that she donated all of her speaking fees to charity — the charity of course being the Clinton Foundation. That likely means she is able to keep the money close and still write it off as a charitable tax deduction. (Hillary Clinton’s $275K Speaking Fee Comes with Diva Demands)

The old termagant has a helluva racket going.

[…] Clinton received $225,000 to speak at the [October 13 UNLV] fundraiser, a discount from her initial $300,000 asking price. But the fee was only the first of Clinton’s many stipulationsThe former Secretary of State insists on staying in the ‘presidential suite’ of a luxury hotel of her staff’s choice, with up to five other rooms reserved for her travel aides and advance staff. Clinton also reportedly requires that the Foundation provide a private plane. However, the jet can not be any private plane; only a $39 million, 16-passenger Gulfstream G450 “or larger” will do the job. (Hillary Clinton requires ‘presidential suite,’ stenographer for speaking engagements, report says)

Despite Hillary’s relentless quest for power (or perhaps because of it), her nomination as the next president is not quite as certain as it was before she began sticking her foot in her foul mouth on college campuses across the country.

Is the market in Hillary Clinton futures collapsing? Quite possibly so. A year ago Clinton seemed likely to become the next president … Things look different now … over the course of 2014, Clinton’s favorability ratings have declined. Her memoir of her Cabinet service had a curiously defensive title — “Hard Choices” — and her book tour was something like the opposite of a ringing success. Sales were slim, and readership probably even slimmer. The prospect of a Clinton presidency may thrill a few aging feminists, but few others seem to find her very interesting. (Latest polls paint Hillary as yesterday’s story)

The derailment of Hillary’s ambition is bound to have consequences, especially for those unfortunate enough to be in her immediate proximity. “It is better to live in a corner of the roof than in a house shared with a contentious woman.” (Proverbs 25:24):

[Hillary] is notorious for her explosive temper. As a child, she punched a classmate when he accidentally bumped his bike into hers. She also punched her friend in the nose for giving away a baby rabbit (from a warren that she told him to guard) … Her explosive temper would continue through her political days. When Bill Clinton was starting on his political career, a staff member told her that she was rumored to be a lesbian, and to deny rumors. She replied “it’s nobody’s God d**n business.” When the staff member persisted that she deny the rumors, she then replied “f**k this s**t!”

After Bill was elected President, Hillary’s temper tantrums continued. Bill and Hillary were said to have referred to each other as “f***ing jerk” and “f***ing b***h” prior to the inauguration. Hillary was said to have thrown objects at Bill and/or Secret Service agents, ranging from lamps to the Bible. At one point she called Bill a “stupid mother f***er”. On another occasion, she burst into a room in the White House and asked a Secret Service agent “where’s the miserable c***sucker?” As a result, she became the most feared woman in the Clinton Administration. And she could turn her wrath on and off in a heartbeat. (Hillary Clinton’s State of Mind)

This is not the person whose finger you want on the nation’s nuclear trigger.  Or, for that matter, on anything else.

Gullible’s Travels

Obama's Legacy“Hands up, don’t shoot” — all while the Obama administration is fleecing the taxpayers. Allen B. West

“In an average year, about 16,000 Americans are murdered, so police killings are maybe two percent of that number. Over half of all murder victims are African-Americans, and almost all of them are killed by other African-Americans. Overall, African-Americans commit murder in the United States at a rate seven times their share of the population … One might think that the far larger murder toll that does not involve police would be a much bigger story than the few controversial cases of white cops killing black civilians. That this is not the case reflects the role of today’s media, which feeds off of the white cops killing black civilian stories almost as much as they love hurricanes and tornadoes and airplane disasters.” – Israel, Ferguson and the global Left

“You [demagogues] are like the fishers for eels; in still waters they catch nothing, but if they thoroughly stir up the slime, their fishing is good; in the same way it’s only in troublous times that you line your pockets.” Aristophanes

__________

In the aftermath of the Missouri riots and the unruly protests in Comrade DeBlasio’s Big Red Apple, the admonition found in Exodus 23:2 is as applicable now as it was back in Moses’ day, when no one had ever heard of Molotov or his cocktail:  “You shall not follow a crowd to do evil.”

It stands to reason then that incitements to the mob, such as those presented by Barack Obama and his retiring henchman Eric Holder are also condemned from on High. From now on, those two should probably stay indoors during electrical storms.

Ferguson: Obama Contines To Undermine Police Departments Around The Country

Obama has continually undermined police departments around the country, and his demand for more training fits that pattern. In 2009, he jumped to the conclusion that Cambridge, Massachusetts police “acted stupidly” when they arrested Henry Gates.  He personalized the Trayvon Martin investigation in a way that to many implied the murder was radically motivated.  And yet again last week, he emphasized that the anger to the verdict was “an understandable reaction” and blacks’ distrust of police is “rooted in realities.”

Role Model For LeftistsNevertheless, whatever Obama implies, there was absolutely no evidence Officer Darren Wilson was motivated by race and he did exactly what he should have done.  Brown’s robbery of the convenience store, his decision to reach into the police car and punch Wilson while trying to take his gun, and finally Brown’s decision to charge Wilson was what caused the teen’s death.

Black Racist Group Plotted Bombing, Assassination but Charged with Gun Crime

Black Panther Get Out Of Jail Free CardThe communist and racist New Black Panther Party plotted to bomb St. Louis’ Gateway Arch and assassinate local law enforcement officials, but the Justice Department so far has limited its prosecution of the group to an indictment of two members on minor gun charges. The soft treatment for activities that normally would have brought federal terrorism charges appears to be part of efforts by Attorney General Eric Holder and the Justice Department to “go soft” on the racist group, according to former Justice official J. Christian Adams.

“I have always been perplexed why these guys get special treatment,” said Adams, who worked in the Justice Department Civil Rights Division and noted a similar conciliatory legal treatment of New Black Panther Party members in a 2008 case of voter intimidation by the group in Philadelphia. In the earlier case against the Panthers, voter intimidation charges were dropped by the Justice Department against the Panthers, and charges were downgraded against one group member, King Shabazz, in what critics say was an effort to show official favoritism toward the group.

And while the rubes and the pundits are busy watching this game of racial 3-Card Monte, Obama and his gang continue to undermine our friends in order to play footsie with our enemies:

Report: Obama Eyes Sanctions on Israel While Giving Iran a Pass

Sanctions We've Got SanctionsSenior White House and State Department officials have recently met to discuss the possibility of imposing sanctions on Israel in an effort to stop housing construction projects in eastern Jerusalem …

“If these reports are true, this would mark a new era of unprecedented hostility from the White House against our strongest ally in the Middle East,” a senior congressional aide stated. “It’s impossible not to notice the irony of the administration mulling sanctions on Israel while threatening to veto new sanctions against Iran.”

White House Shoots Down Petition to Declare Muslim Brotherhood a Terrorist Organization

The White House has officially rejected a ‘We the People’ petition calling for the U.S. Government to declare the Muslim Brotherhood a terrorist organization after more than a year and 200,000 signatures …

“We have not seen credible evidence that the Muslim Brotherhood has renounced its decades-long commitment to non-violence.”

State Dept. Has Not Cancelled Passports of Any ‘ISIS or Foreign Fighters’ Returning to U.S.

The United States must use “all of the tools at our disposal” to deal with the threat posed by Americans and other Westerners who go to Syria and Iraq to fight with ISIS, a State Department official told Congress on Tuesday.  But so far, that does not include revoking the passports of U.S. citizens who have traveled to Syria to fight with ISIS.

Meanwhile, it’s being reported that Obama has been hospitalized for a sore throat brought on by acid reflux disease.  It’s only fair. He’s been giving Real Americans heartburn since 2008.

A Continuum Of Weasels

Streepie__________

60s Without The Fun__________

“In a desperate email sent to Obama supporters this morning, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee suggested that unless liberals show that they are ‘still standing with President Obama,’ their beloved leader could end up in the slammer.” – Joe Miller

It gets a bit tiresome railing about Barack Obama.  On the other hand, there’s so much to rail about.  The man’s elevation to an office he had no business entering unless it was to empty the ashtrays has been a catastrophe of the first order — and if you don’t think so by now, then you’re probably either gay and proud, a newly legalized illegal alien, or a hardcore member of the destructive party that foisted him on us in the first place. America would be better off with genital warts than Democrats. Think I’m kidding?  Ponder, if you will this excerpt from the New York Post:

Obama likes to claim he’s been forced into rogue executive actions, laying the blame on an intransigent Congress. In fact, his lawlessness is coldly calculated, dating back to his days as a Chicago community organizer … Learning to run around American law was his main purpose in attending Harvard Law School, where he quickly sidled up to Professor Derrick Bell, who bashed the Constitution as a form of “original sin.” There was no reverence in studying the founding documents and the system they created, no desire to work within America’s legal framework and enforce existing law. No, Obama didn’t study federal statutes to defend them. He studied them to game them, sabotage them. To abdicate them.

Then consider this recent performance during the Ferguson riots:

[Obama] insisted, “We have to try to understand” the anger of those who demanded nothing less than a murder charge absent an ounce of evidence as an “understandable reaction” from people who believe “the law is being applied in a discriminatory fashion.” Where did those people get that belief? Leave it to Obama to omit that critical information — the same President Obama who met with protest leaders and Sharpton on Nov. 5 at the White House. It was at that unscheduled meeting the president was ostensibly “concerned about Ferguson staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating,” according to Sharpton. “He said he hopes that we’re doing all we can to keep peace.” One is left to marvel at one of two realities. Either we have a president so utterly naive he believes a hoax-perpetrating, riot-inciting Al Sharpton, who denigrated the grand jury process, pre-organized protest rallies in 25 American cities, and uses his MSNBC platform to fire up racial unrest, is a man of peace. Or the president, who once urged his Latino followers to “punish our enemies,” remains as wedded to the same racial “us against them” mentality as America’s foremost racial arsonist. Is it really possible to believe the former? (Obama and the Roots of the Ferguson Rage)

***

Give Her The GasIt’s classic Cloward-Piven strategy.  First you foment a crisis, and then you rush in with a left-wing cure.  That is exactly what the president did during an interview on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos … During the Closer Look segment, Barack Obama weighed in on how to fix what he helped break. As the public awaited the grand jury decision as to whether or not to indict Ferguson, Missouri Police Officer Darren Wilson for the shooting death of black teen Michael Brown, the typically anarchistic Obama saw it as an opportunity to impart guidance to law enforcement on how to profile black teenagers.  That’s right – Barack Obama, who, when it comes to himself, regularly contravenes the rules and regulations, is now suddenly an expert on how law enforcement should comport themselves in tense situations. (The American Thinker)

On maybe you’d rather ruminate about what your kids are being taught in Obama’s little Red schoolhouses:

[…] the Obama White House is now urging public schools (with YOUR tax dollars no less) to honor Michael Brown with classroom memorials as a way of forming “classroom solidarity.” It is a blatantly disgusting act of divisive lies being used to manipulate students into conforming with the far left, anti-American ideals of this Age of Obama. The troubled young man who was Michael Brown is being turned into a far left caricature meant to help spread the meme of a deeply flawed and racist United States, when in fact it is Barack Obama and his race baiting cohorts like Al Sharpton who have more deeply divided America against itself. An effort that is apparently being vigorously supported by leading Communist organizations in America as well whose primary goal is the total destruction of this nation’s socio-political foundation. (Obama White House Pushes Public Schools To “Honor” Mike Brown)

There’s no doubt about it.  We’ve hired a weasel and his brood to guard the hen house.

Firing Up His Base

Pals“Obama, of course, invested long ago in the notion that every incident involving a black victim and a white (or white Hispanic) shooter symbolizes America’s greater racial ills. There is no individual justice; there is only social justice. Darren Wilson and Michael Brown were not individuals; they were merely stand-ins for racial conflict … Sadly for President Obama, the grand jury looked at the evidence – something Obama and his allies have never bothered to do…” –  Ben Shapiro

“In America we don’t put people on trial just to satisfy the vengeance of the mob.” – Matt Walsh

15 trillion dollars laterEric Holder Let Ferguson Burn – So Says City Mayor

As millions across the nation watched the television images of a city streets being engulfed in flames, Ferguson city officials were wondering what had happened to the National Guard soldiers Missouri Governor Jay Nixon had already mobilized. And now that state’s Lt. Governor is pointing the finger at Obama Attorney General Eric Holder, who it is believed did not want images of National Guard soldiers being broadcast from Ferguson as it would reinforce the growing perception of an Obama administration spiraling out of control. Therefore, the safety of Ferguson was sacrificed in favor of the perception politics of the Obama White House. (Ulsterman)

Newsflash to liberals: pillage, plunder, and arson are NOT legitimate forms of expression.  The Marxists, anarchists, looters, and shooters currently plying their trade in Ferguson and elsewhere are not protesters; they’re criminals.  And if Barack Obama and Eric Holder have interfered with the law enforcement officers whose duty it is to ensure the public safety, so are they.  Watch what they do, not what they say.

“Anyone who believes that the GOP will have a newly chastened Obama to deal with in 2015 must be living in one of those states where marijuana was recently legalized … his idea of compromise was for the Republicans to tell him which of his bills and policies they were ready to support.” – Burt Prelutsky

“The only group the GOP leadership is not afraid of fighting are the grassroots conservatives in their own party.” – Jeff Crouere

The official Republican response to the latest Obama usurpation?  A few blustery statements of faux outrage followed by a quick trip out of town for the Thanksgiving holiday.  If resistance like this had been the standard in 1776, we’d be pledging allegiance to the queen — and given this president’s lunatic obsession with institutionalizing the LGBT agenda, that’s not too far off.  Even the Obama Justice Department has branded their boss a rogue:

The Secretary of Homeland Security and the Counsel to the President directed the Justice Department to investigate whether the president had the authority to take contemplated actions with regard to illegal immigrants via executive order. In a letter dated 19 November, they found he did not. On 20 November, he did it anyway.

Justice Department attorney Karl Thompson, writing for the White House Office of Legal Counsel, said:

The Executive cannot, under the guides of exercising enforcement discretion, attempt to effectively rewrite the laws to match its policy preferences. An agency’s enforcement decisions should be consonant with, rather than contrary to, the congressional policy underlying the statutes the agency is charged with administering.”

Stop MeBarack Obama has used his time in office to peddle prevarications from Timbuktu to Kalamazoo. It’s cost him the goodwill of the American people, of course, but the communists and the New York Times still love him.  And those are the only two redlines about which he’s ever really cared.

The Executive Outlaw

 OutlawBased on his subversive actions, by definition Barack Obama is indeed making war against America, and it’s high time Congress responded by declaring their own war on a man who became a domestic enemy the day he violated his oath by refusing to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States.” (Time for Congress to Declare War on Obama)

***

“Obama has NO constitutional legal authority whatsoever to alter, circumvent, subvert or otherwise ignore the standing laws of the United States concerning Immigration and Naturalization.” – North American Law Center

***

It is no accident that Obama is announcing amnesty on November 20th – Mexican National Revolution Day.” —  Free Republic

***

“It is the sense of Congress that this purported Executive Order is a usurpation of the legislative power vested solely in the Congress of the United States and, as such, is null and void.” –Proposed Concurrent Resolution Of Congress

***

Barack Hussein Obama must be the only graduate in the history of Harvard University that can’t read:

Article I – Section 8, under the enumerated powers of Congress, the U.S. Constitution assigns all legal authority to establish rules and regulate United States Immigration and Naturalization solely to the U.S. Congress, which has indeed established a uniform set of rules for immigrating to the United States and becoming a United States citizen.

Article II relative to the Executive powers of the Oval Office makes no mention of any law-making authority whatsoever, any powers to regulate Immigration or Naturalization rules, or any power to circumvent or subvert the Laws of the United States as established by Congress. There is also no mention of Executive Orders or special executive powers in Article II of the U.S. Constitution. (REPUBLICANS CAN STOP EXECUTIVE ORDER AMNESTY DEAD)

Nonsense, of course.  Obama can read — off a teleprompter, at least.  He knows damn well what he’s doing is illegal.  But, like every tyrant that ever lived,  he’s decided that not only is he above the law,  he IS the law.

Obama’s favorite justification for his executive action is that “Congress failed to act.” No, Mr. President, Congress did not fail to act, it chose not to act in granting amnesty. There is a difference. A determination not to act is, by itself, a deliberate act. This is how the framers constructed our system of government. Congress considers and debates a great many bills. Not all of them pass. This is not “failure” in the conventional sense, but decision by declination. It constitutes a prudent and calculated process.

But the president uses this contrived “failure” as a pretext to arrogate the authority of another branch of government. He wields his pen to legislate by executive decree. He well knows he is exceeding his power … The president’s executive order to legalize illegals by nullifying existing law, constitutes a stunning abuse of office: usurping the power of Congress, while abdicating his duty to uphold and enforce the laws.
