“Republicans Who Voted For Loretta Lynch Voted For The Abuse Of Executive Power”

“Mitch McConnell could have made a case against Obama’s overreach. Now, he’s complicit.”

Obama-McConnell-998x699

This is from The Federalist. I agree with it.

Americans voted to give control of the Congress to Republicans. They promised to fight the leftists and to oppose executive overreach. We didn’t trust them and now we know we were right. John Boehner and Mitch McConnell have been caving to President Obama and the left.

It’s pretty simple. After years of griping about Barack Obama’s abuse of executive power, the GOP finally has a chance to do something about it.

So Mitch McConnell makes a deal: If Democrats agree to stop blocking a human trafficking bill over some boilerplate language regarding abortion funding—a position that made them look unreasonable—Republicans, with all the leverage imaginable, will help confirm another attorney general nominee who will rubber stamp the president’s many overreaches.

Loretta Lynch was confirmed in a 56-43 Senate vote. McConnell was a Yea.”

He didn’t want to be called a racist and a sexist for opposing her. So he voted to extend Obama’s reign over the Department of Justice. Those are cowardly reasons for taking the coward’s way out.

Defiance In Washington State

As you may know Washington passed a law last year that mandates background checks foe all gun transfers, even private sales. Since then there has been a lot of pushback in the community of gun owners. We reported on it here, here, and here.

Now Washington gun owners are planning an in-your-face rally in June. It’s called an Arms Expo. If you would like to attend here are the particulars:

Somebody Is Lying About The Iran Nuclear Agreement

Who do you think it is?

Here is how President Obama describes it:

Obama promised there will be “unprecedented access” to the entire supply chain.

Iran, however, says the inspections are all ‘Voluntary’.

Reza Najafi, Iran’s ambassador to the International Atomic Energy Agency(IAEA) says:

Press TV: What do you think about the IAEA’s role in the implementation of the Joint Plan of Action?

Najafi: The agency as a professional organization, indeed, should do a professional work. It means — only from the technical point of view — reporting what has been done by Iran. Of course Iran under the Joint Plan of Action, agreed in Geneva, agreed to implement some voluntary measures.

These voluntary measures have been implemented, constantly, and it was reported by the agency, and confirmed and verified.”

The emphasis is mine for clarity. Who do you believe?

Do You Use The VA Medical System?

And you thought this kind of talk was tinfoil hat stuff.

“VA Sends Veterans’ Medical Info To FBI To Get Their Guns Taken Away”

Obama delivers remarks after a meeting with McDonald and others at the Phoenix VA Medical Center in Phoenix

VA medical information is used to block veterans from possessing firearms:

The Daily Caller obtained a “MEMORANDUM OF UNDERSTANDING BETWEEN THE UNITED STATES DEPARTMENT OF VETERANS AFFAIRS AND THE FEDERAL BUREAU OF INVESTIGATION REGARDING THE NATIONAL INSTANT CRIMINAL BACKGROUND CHECK SYSTEM.”

The document, dated Feb. 27, 2012, makes clear the VA must send health information to the FBI for its gun background-check database.”

“Can the president kill Americans?”

“Not legally, but that doesn’t deter him”

obamadrone

This article was written by Judge Andrew Napolitano and published in the Washington Times.

Can the president kill you? The short answer is: yes, but not legally. Yet, President Obama has established a secret process that involves officials from the departments of Justice and Defense, the CIA, and the White House senior staff whereby candidates are proposed for execution, and the collective wisdom of the officials then recommends execution to the president, who then accepts or rejects the recommendation.

If the recommendation is to kill and the president rejects the recommendation, the CIA is directed to arrest the person. If the president accepts the recommendation to kill, then death is ordered. This is not unlike the procedure used in the reign of the monstrous British King Henry VIII, except that the king himself delegated the final say to his chancellor so that he could publicly disavow participation in the government murders.

Mr. Obama does not disavow them; he defends them.”

You really ought to read the rest here. Napolitano is a defender of liberty.

Americans Left In Yemen Rescued By …. Russians

Yemen got too scary for American diplomats so they were pulled out a couple of weeks ago. Our State Department made a big deal about getting US diplomats out. Trouble is there were still some US citizens left there. The State Dept. did not try to get them out.

A reporter asked State Department spokesgirl Marie Harf, “How are they supposed to get out, Swim?” she didn’t respond. She just gave him an evil eye.

She, and the rest of the department didn’t have a plan.

Now it is reported that the Russian Navy has rescued 300 people from Yemen including 18 Americans.

The Russian Navy vessel Priazovye has helped to evacuate 308 people from war-torn Yemen. The Russian Defense Ministry stated citizens from 19 countries had been rescued, including Russian, Ukrainian, US and Yemini nationals.

The Russian warship departed the southern Yemeni port of Aden on Sunday night and is due to arrive in Djibouti, on the east coast of Africa on Monday morning.

“Among those evacuated from the zone of hostilities in the Aden area, were citizens of 19 countries, including 45 Russian nationals,” Igor Konashenkov, a Defense Ministry spokesman said on Sunday.

There were also a number of foreign citizens aboard the Priazovye, including 18 Americans, 14 Ukrainians, nine Belorusians, five UK citizens, as well as 159 Yemeni nationals.”

Were we just going to leave those people there? Why isn’t this more well reported? Those people were being sacrificed because of the incompetence and the lack of concern of the Obama administration. That is evil

Malia Obama’s Asthma Is From Barry’s Cigarette Smoking – Not Climate Change

President Obama has blamed his daughter, Malia’s, Asthma on climate change. The editors at USA Today point out that the most likely reason for her affliction, if it existed at all, is her father’s cigarette smoking.

That makes a lot more sense.

“White House admits lying to Congress and America on Iran deal”

Yeah, smirk you SOB.  You think you are so clever.

Yeah, smirk you SOB. You think you are so clever.

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khameini has said that Obama’s fact sheet is not what Iran agreed to:

Iranian Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said on Thursday he neither backed nor rejected an interim accord with six world powers on Tehran’s disputed nuclear program but demanded all sanctions be lifted immediately once a final agreement was concluded.

He added in a televised speech that the details of the accord would be decisive, and the publication of a US fact sheet showing terms that were at variance with the Iranian view of the agreement showed “devilish” US intentions.

“I neither support nor oppose it,” he said. “Everything is in the details; it may be that the deceptive other side wants to restrict us in the details.”

And now the White House has admitted that it has embellished the terms of the agreement:

American officials acknowledge that they did not inform the Iranians in advance of all the “parameters” the United States would make public in an effort to lock in progress made so far, as well as to strengthen the White House’s case against any move by members of Congress to impose more sanctions against Iran.

“We talked to them and told them that we would have to say some things,” said a senior administration official who could not be identified under the protocol for briefing reporters. “We didn’t show them the paper. We didn’t show them the whole list.”

“Why have we allowed crime without punishment? “

That is an important question. It was asked by a writer, Janet M. Tavakoli.

janet m. tavaloki

Tavakoli has seen and identified a trend that has been common in the United States Government. She wrote a book called, “Decisions: Life and Death on Wall Street”. She notes:

When I asked Democrats close to the top of the Obama administration, their answers were so similar I thought they had memorized a script: The administration made a bargain, and I’m not sure it was the right decision. The world was teetering on the edge of collapse. There was a crisis of confidence. There would have been unimaginable consequences.

I believe you would have gotten a similar answer whether you asked a Republican or a Democrat; it was a bipartisan betrayal of taxpayers.”

She is talking about the 2008 financial ‘Melt-down’. She continues:

Did our representatives in Washington make the right decision for the country? They did not. They were wrong. They were dangerously and recklessly wrong. The administration tried to hide the personal benefits of this egregiously wrong decision behind a mythical idea of a “crisis of confidence” if we prosecuted, arrested, and imprisoned crooks.

There is a crisis of confidence today, but that crisis of confidence is because we did not prosecute and imprison people who defrauded the global financial markets and taxpayers.”

So, once we had Eric Holder as Attorney General he alone determined that thieves and liars need not be prosecuted. Did he go after Jon Corzine, the head of MF Global? Corzine approved the illegal investment of customer funds that were held by MF in trust accounts. He invested them in risky derivatives and lost all the money. What is now the rule that controls ‘Trust Accounts’?

Market Ticker has an interesting take:

So instead we pretend that we’re “borrowing” when in fact no such thing is taking place. A loan you never intend to pay back is no loan at all; it is something else, and in this case (as in most cases) it is theft.

How much theft?

$574 billion in the last three months of 2014 alone, all taken from you by both private parties (banks) and government.”:

“If You Like Your Doctor You Can Keep Your Doctor… Period

The world is being lied to by everyone who is involved in this nuclear talk.

this is a good deal

There is someone uniquely qualified to analyzing the curiously divergent versions of the agreement and that person is Amer Taheri. In the NY Post he outlines the conflicting positions of the US and Iran regarding this deal. The first thing Taheri notes is that there is no agreement as yet. Then he observes the wildly differing number of words in the translated texts:

First, we have a joint statement in English in 291 words by Iranian Foreign Minister Muhammad Javad Zarif and the European Union foreign policy point-woman Federica Mogherini, who led the so-called P5+1 group of nations including the US in the negotiations.

John Kerry and his team watch from Lausanne, Switzerland as President Obama makes his state address on the status of the Iran nuclear program talks on April 2nd.

Next we have the official Iranian text, in Persian, which runs into 512 words. The text put out by the French comes with 231 words. The prize for “spinner-in-chief” goes to US Secretary of State John Kerry who has put out a text in 1,318 words and acts as if we have a done deal.

It is not only in their length that the texts differ.

Interesting:

The American text claims that Iran has agreed to do this or that, for example reducing the number of centrifuges from 19,000 to 6,500.

The Iranian text, however, says that Iran “shall be able to . . .” or “qader khahad boud” in Farsi to do such a thing. The same is true about enrichment in Fordow. The Americans say Iran has agreed to stop enrichment there for 15 years. The Iranian text, however, refers to this as something that Iran “will be able to do,” if it so wished.”

“Managing Obama’s war against Israel”

Caroline Glick wrote that jarring headline and the accompanying article. It really is a rather harsh thing to say, but she does make the point that US President Obama has gone to war against the people and the state of Israel.

Obama

First we need to understand that the administration’s hostility has little to do with Israel’s actions.

As Max Boot explained Wednesday in The Wall Street Journal, the administration’s animosity toward Israel is a function of Obama’s twin strategic aims, both evident since he entered office: realigning US policy in the Middle East toward Iran and away from its traditional allies Israel and the Sunni Arab states, and ending the US’s strategic alliance with Israel.

Over the past six years we have seen how Obama has consistently, but gradually, taken steps to advance these two goals. Toward Iran, he has demonstrated an unflappable determination to accommodate the terrorism supporting, nuclear proliferating, human rights repressing and empire building mullahs.”

I will add, also, that the attempts by Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu toward thanking Obama and extending a hand to him during his Congressional speech have been rebuffed. Israel is being edged out of the picture. Obama and his administration are doing exactly what he said he would do in his book. He is aligning himself with the Muslims rather than the west.

Never before has Israel had to deal with such an openly hostile US administration. Indeed, until 2009, the very notion that a day would come when an American president would prefer an alliance with Khamenei’s Iran to its traditional alliances with Israel and the Sunni Arab states was never even considered. But here we are.

Our current situation is unpleasant. But it isn’t the end of the world. We aren’t helpless. If we act wisely, we can stem Iran’s nuclear and regional advance. If we act boldly, we can preserve our alliance with the US while adopting a policy toward the Palestinians that for the first time in decades will advance our interests and our liberal values on the world stage.”

The Kiss Of Death

“Obama casts absentee ballot: “I’m sure everyone knows I’ll be voting for Rahm””

obamavotes-CST-033115-1

President Barack Obama already cast a ballot for Mayor Rahm Emanuel and urged Chicagoans to vote in the April 7 mayoral election. ”I’m sure everyone knows I’ll be voting for Rahm,” Obama said.

A picture of Obama sitting at a desk filling out his Chicago ballot on Friday was released Monday through the Democratic National Committee.

“I’d like to encourage everyone in Chicago to vote in the April 7 city run-off election. Whether you vote by mail, take advantage of early voting, or go to the polls on election day, I hope you will make your voice heard. This is an election about big things: jobs, schools and safety.”

Who’d A Thunk It?

NBC reporter says US allies are worried that the Obama administration is leaking their classified information to Iran. They no longer trust the United States.

Duh!

President Obama Has leaked classified documents. He is determined to see that Iran gets a nuclear weapon and he wants the state of Israel destroyed.

Who can say why he’s doing this? I’d guess it’s because of several things. He has allied himself with Islam as he said he would in his book. His chief advisor, Valerie Jarrett, was born in Iran, and Secretary of State John Kerry’s daughter is married to an Iranian.

But mostly, Obama just wants the United States to be defeated.

This Is Important

It sounds like All of our Senators want a say in any deal the Obama administration strikes with the Mullahs in Iran. That is a good thing. Let’s see what they do with it.

“Deal on Kirk’s Iran Amendment Leads to Unanimous Vote”

Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill

Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill

As evening approached in the Senate’s budget vote-a-rama, lawmakers found some common ground on Iran. A 100-0 vote followed.

Sen. Mark S. Kirk, R-Ill., and Banking Committee ranking Democrat Sherrod Brown of Ohio ultimately teamed up on an amendment designed to make it easier to punish the Iranian regime with revived and new sanctions in the event the president can’t certify Iran is complying with any agreement.

Kirk called the amendment “the key Iran vote of this session of Congress.”

All there is on the news is the crash of the German airliner. Far more important than that, and getting no coverage is the nuclear deal with Iran.

We are hearing literally nothing about it except how unhappy President Obama is with Prime Minister Netanyahu for wanting to stop Iran from getting a bomb.

It Gets Funnier Every Day – Pathetic

Iran is negotiating but doesn’t want anything written down.

“In Nuclear Talks, Iran Seeks to Avoid Specifics”

John Kerry calls his bookie

John Kerry calls his bookie

PARIS — If an agreement to limit Iran’s nuclear capability is reached by deadline in the next seven days, one thing may be missing: an actual written accord, signed by the Iranians.

Over the past few weeks, Iran has increasingly resisted any kind of formal “framework” agreement at this stage in the negotiations, preferring a more general statement of “understanding” followed by a final accord in June, according to Western diplomats involved in the talks.

Should that position hold — one of the many unknowns of the coming days — the United States and its five negotiating partners may find themselves in the uncomfortable position of describing the accord as they understand it while the Iranians go home to offer their own version.”

“Official: White House was part of bid to oust Netanyahu”

Petty, childish, and petulant, that’s our ‘President’. What’s worse is it didn’t work. That must be particularly galling to our nancy boy.

“Senior Jerusalem source says administration wanted ‘revenge’ over Congress speech; declares there’ll be no Palestinian state ‘in our generation’”

000_Hkg10117925-e1415862334562-635x357 The White House was directly involved in an attempt to unseat Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in last week’s general election, during a nadir in ties between the Israeli leader and US President Barack Obama, a senior Jerusalem official said Tuesday

The official, who spoke on condition of anonymity, told The Times of Israel that “it’s no secret” that the Obama administration had attempted to influence the outcome of the election, having been partially motivated by a desire for revenge over Netanyahu’s polarizing speech before Congress earlier this month, which sought to undermine the president’s key foreign policy initiative – a nuclear deal with Iran.
