Kos: “We have made enormous progress in race relations over past several decades” ….. Really???

Even the Daily Kos is skeptical of this one.

“Jarrett: Boehner Asked Obama For Help Avoiding Conservative’s Ire”

If this is true it is devastating. But it may not be. Jarrett is certainly not above lying.

But, then, it does sound like something he would do.

House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) requested that President Barack Obama avoid making a “very public push” on immigration during the midterm primaries, according to White House Senior Adviser Valerie Jarrett.

Speaking to the Chicago Sun-Times’ Washington Bureau Chief, Lynn Sweet, Jarrett claimed that the Speaker asked Obama to wait until after the primaries to publicly move with the immigration issue.”

First Hagel. Now Kerry?

Kerry is having trouble convincing Iran to cut back on their nuclear ambitions in exchange for unicorn farts.

Really. That is what Obama has given him to negotiate with.

Obama wants an agreement badly but he wants it on his terms. He doesn’t want to get tough with Iran with sanctions. He ‘Feels’ that he can just convince them with his charm. Kerry is unable to make it work. There are even reports that the Iranian negotiator hollers at him.

Iran doesn’t want to stop trying to build nukes. There is no convincing them. Seriously, it is extremely doubtful if sanctions would have an effect. Remember, the Mullahs are willing to live in the seventh century.

From Politico:

John Kerry under fire for punting on Iran

There is increased pressure for him to either deliver an agreement or give up.

Official nuclear talks with Iran began in October of last year. The following month they produced an interim deal freezing the progress of Iran’s uranium enrichment activity in return for relaxed sanctions.
That deal was meant to last just six months. “[W]e look forward to, hopefully in a short span of time, being able to put together a comprehensive agreement,” Kerry told reporters after the deal was inked in Geneva on November 24. The deal was extended in July, and again on Monday.
While Democrats are privately frustrated, Republicans responded to the latest extension with blunt talk — and calls for action.
“We’re definitely getting played by the Iranians,” says Sen. Mark Kirk (R-Il.), who believes Kerry is offering Iran a dangerously soft deal.”

“Ted Cruz Proposes ‘Detailed, Systematic Plan’ to Stop Obama’s Amnesty”

Cruz has to look at the problem from his vantage point. He is a Senator – a member of the Congress. His options are limited. This is what the Senate can do.

It takes balls to propose this. It will take a Majority Leader with balls to actually do it. Does Mitch McConnell have what it takes? We shall see.

In this clip Chris Wallace warns Cruz several times that bucking the President didn’t work well for Republicans in the past. What do you suppose he is referring to? As Cruz points out, the results were not dire like Wallace remembers them. As a result of GOP spine the Democrats and the media squalled like mashed cats. That’s all. The real result was the election of 2014 when the GOP took control of the Senate and increased their control of the house.

Wallace appears to be more afraid of Republican success than anything else. It shows where his political positions lie.

Red State: “This Means War”

It looks like the beginning of a declaration of war. The warriors are assembling. The enemy is in sight and easy to recognize. The weapons have been in the arsenal for more than two hundred years.

Impeachment.

What we are waiting for is a leader. We need someone who has a warrior spirit and can be trusted. We need someone who is not afraid to use the weapons at hand.

Impeachment has been derided by the media, the Democrats, and some Republicans. They all point backward to the Impeachment of Bill Clinton and mock the actions. Why do they do this? It’s because Impeachment is the only answer and they fear it. Their only defense, now that Republicans own both houses of Congress, is to try to make the GOP afraid to use it.

That is why we need leaders with the warrior spirit. We need leaders who will go toward the perceived danger. We have a few like that, too. It’s time they act.

obama fuck constitution

The emperor has struck. Grow a pair, withstand the inevitable blowback, and do what the Framers would have wanted.

For reasons I will soon explain, I think it is entirely legitimate and indeed quite possibly salutary for the long-term health of the republic for the House of Representatives to formally draft articles of impeachment pursuant to its Art. I, § 2, cl. 5 prerogative.

Very few seem to be urging this course of action, and the reasons cautioning against impeachment have much merit. Indeed, only two presidents have ever been impeached by the House, and both were acquitted by the Senate. Republicans, even in the subsequent Congress, will not have control of the two-thirds Senate majority needed to convict. Furthermore, the impeachment tool post-Bill Clinton has contemporarily largely been stigmatized as inextricable from a partisan witch hunt, and even though Obama’s unilateral amnesty itself is procedurally unpopular with the citizenry, the reality is that large swaths of the country are more substantively sympathetic to “comprehensive immigration reform” policy itself.

Nonetheless, I — and many others — remain convinced that this is a clear-cut impeachable offense, and it is entirely plausible that if the House fails to act in the 114th Congress by filing articles of impeachment, then the impeachment tool will truly be lost forever. Considering the Framers’ view of the impeachment tool as an indispensable congressional check on executive overreach, that would be nothing short of a travesty.”

“Fasten your seatbelts, Canada, and get ready for the battle for America”

1297627885699_ORIGINAL

Here is another example of someone from outside the country of the United States who can see the big picture. We, who live here, are distracted by day-to-day news and have a bit more trouble seeing it.

Canada, being our closest neighbor, both geographically and culturally, is closely allied with us in ways that many do not understand. That country is larger in size than the US but has a bit more than one-tenth of our population. It’s for that reason that what happens in the United States affects Canada far more than what happens in Canada affects the US.

There are a few in Canada who resent Americans but most – the thinking people – know that we are important to the, This writer is one of those thinking people.

canada flag

From the Calgary Sun:

America is on the edge of a second revolutionary war.

It may not be bloody like the first one, but it will be hugely important.

Some might suggest it’s more a civil war, but with liberty and the constitution hanging in the balance, revolution seems a more appropriate comparison.

There are no British troops or monarchy to fight this time.

The ‘shot heard around the world’ wasn’t fired from a musket, it came from the ballot box.

Americans have taken a long hard look at the kind of fundamental transformation promised by Barack Obama and the Democrat party and they want nothing to do with it.

The Republican victory suggests Americans are more than just unhappy with the direction the country is headed.

Such was the devastating scope of the electoral debacle for the Democrats that it appears Americans are mobilizing for war against the Obama agenda.”

This is a very complete look at what is happening in American politics. The writer, Marc Patrone, has a good feel for the conflict:

It’s taken six years, but the ugly truth about Obama’s contemptuous attitudes toward the people who elected him twice is becoming all too evident.

Lame duck? Guess again.

The man probably realizes that a chance to remake the U.S. according to his far left view of the world may not come around again.

His time is running out. Obama’s ‘nuclear’ option is amnesty for millions of illegals.

He expects those illegals will become dependents of the state, thus stacking the electoral deck in favour of Democrats by promising the new ‘wards of the state’ a suite of entitlements.

The depth of this destructive agenda is clear, rip off trillions in wealth (which Obama believes was stolen anyway) and give it to those whom he considers ‘victims’ of capitalism.”

Ouch.

Try Harder, I Guess…

enemy-list

… What do you do when a huge document dump from the White House proves there is a President’s Enemies List and you are not on it? I don’t know about you but I’m gonna try harder.

Townhall.com has a partial list of the bloggers who are on the list:

Townhall Magazine’s Katie Pavlich, who also authored a book on Operation Fast and Furious; Breitbart.com writers Joel Pollak and Ken Klukowski; Fox News Channel’s William LaJeunesse, Judge Andrew Napolitano, Megyn Kelly, Martha MacCallum, Bill Hemmer, Bill O’Reilly and Sean Hannity; Sipsey Street Irregulars blogger Mike Vanderboegh; DirectorBlue blogger Doug Ross; National Review’s Andrew C. McCarthy; and this reporter. (Matthew Boyle of The Daily Caller).”

There is hope, though. The list above is described as a ‘Partial list’.

“The president simply isn’t going to tolerate that,”

obama gives us the finger_thumb[41]

Just who does he think he is?

He is not America’s parent. He is not king or ‘Emperor’. He’s a skinny little jug-eared politician with no experience, no credentials, and no past who wants to be King. “The president simply isn’t going to tolerate that,” came from press secretary Josh Earnest today when he tried to blame House Speaker John Boehner for Obama’s upcoming decree.

Just two weeks ago, when Speaker Boehner was doing his post-election news conference, he was asked by reporters in that news conference if he would commit to bringing up immigration reform legislation in the next Congress, and he wouldn’t do it,” Josh Earnest said during an appearance on MSNBC.

Earnest said GOP leadership was scared to allow a vote because “they know, as we do, that if that bill were allowed to come up for a vote, it would actually pass in bipartisan fashion.”
“The president simply isn’t going to tolerate that,” Earnest said.”

“Sharpton Organizing Rallies in 25 Cities for Once Grand Jury Decision is Known”

These are threats. Of course they won’t be prosecuted. Instead, police and property owners are gearing up for violence. If the Ferguson Grand Jury does not hand down an indictment – or even if it does – the demonstrators have been trained, armed, and are ready for weeks of race war.

From pzfeed:

Barack Obama, Al Sharpton

From Boston to Los Angeles, police departments are bracing for large demonstrations when a grand jury decides whether to indict a white police officer who killed an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri.”

Of course he is.

Sharpton says once the announcement is made, demonstrators will make their voice known.”

Oakland, California police are trying to prepare:

The city is determined to be ready this time. Police Chief Sean Whent admitted his officers were caught flat-footed during the Trayvon Martin protests.
“What happened that evening was largely an intelligence failure,” Whent said.”

Detroit police say they are not expecting riots even though they have been warned by the FBI that they are likely:

The Ferguson National Response Network is planning nationwide protests following the ruling. A Detroit rally is planned at the Detroit Police Department Eastern District Headquarters, 11187 Gratiot in Detroit, at 7 p.m. the day after the ruling.

Other Michigan protests are planned at Rosa Parks Circle in Grand Rapids and Looms Park in Jackson at 7 p.m. the day after the ruling.”

The protests are being organized by a diverse bunch of groups including the former New Black Panthers party:

Malik Shabazz, founder of the New Marcus Garvey Movement in Detroit, formerly known as the New black Panthers, agrees.

“I don’t think Detroit is going to blow up,” he said. “I’m not anticipating it, nor am I encouraging it.”

Regarding relations between Detroit police and the city’s 82-percent black population, Shabazz said: “I think there is room for growth… however, Chief (James Craig) is doing an outstanding job of reaching out to the community and under his leadership, I things are moving in the right direction.”

Shabazz feels improving the economic standing of the black community would result in improved relations with police.

“Jews are not beaten and killed by police like black people because they have traditionally had … economic power,” Shabazz said. “When you vote in piss-poor numbers and you don’t have economic power, you’re like a punching bag.”

Yep. That’s the way to keep the violence down: Name the Jews as enemies.

Harvard Sued for Racial Prejudice in Admissions Policy

The federal suits allege Harvard and UNC rely on race-based affirmative action policies that impact admissions of high-achieving white and Asian American students. The Harvard lawsuit also contends that the Ivy League university specifically limits the number of Asian Americans it admits each year.

Red State: “Shut. It. Down.”

This is from Erick Erickson over at Red State. He has been coming around lately and he sounds a whole lot smarter. In this case he reminds us of a couple of times when the government was shut down fairly recently. Everyone, it seems, blamed the Republicans and predicted dire results for them.

Which never came to pass.

As a matter of fact, the last shut down showed the American people just how small, petty, and childish Democrats can be. We all saw parks and monuments that were not just shut down, but were done so in an in-your-face manner that Americans remember.

What was the result?

House-election-results-2014-620x440

The people of the United States did not elect all those Republicans because they had brilliant visions of Utopia to sell. They did so because they wanted Adults in charge. We were tired of the fifth-grade schoolyard BS.

There is an awful lot of talk about the dangers of another shut down but we want warriors working for us in Washington. Warriors, by definition, do not cringe from danger. A proper warrior runs, not walks, toward the sounds of war.

We must stop listening to those who tell us how dangerous it would be to shut down the government or to initiate Impeachment hearings against a lawless President. And we sure as hell shouldn’t worry about Joe Biden.

Yes, yes, yes, let us concede up front that the GOP will always get blamed for a government shutdown.

Yes, yes, yes, let us concede that, in fact, polling for the GOP declined after the 2013 shutdown. But, we must caveat, some of their decline was from Republicans who decided their side had caved and were unhappy.

Now let us also concede this: many Republicans were hysterically outraged that Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX)93% had cost the GOP the Senate and they could potentially lose the House because of the shut down.

And finally let us concede that this did not happen.

In fact, this is the second shut down where the GOP got blamed and saw no catastrophe at the ballot box. Again, after the shutdown the Clinton years, the GOP picked up Senate seats.”

“MARK LEVIN: Democrats “should thank God every single day that we are a peaceful, law-abiding people””

Mark Levin

Mark Levin

Yes they should but instead they are using our peaceful, law-abiding nature against us. It is plain to see that people like Jonathan Gruber think we are bone stupid for refusing to challenge the President at every turn – and maybe we are. They are perfectly willing to do whatever it takes to further their agenda. As we have seen, they are willing to lie, steal, destroy people’s lives, and just about anything else. They may be willing to kill or injure but so far we have no proof of that. We do have plenty of proof, though, about the lying, stealing, and the destruction of others.

What the American people are is slow to anger. But if we are constantly pushed like these lizards have been doing we will, in fact, become angry. We have the moral high ground that they don’t want.

Jonathan Gruber

Jonathan Gruber

We have Berwick who says, look, this is about redistribution. We have Obama lying through his teeth. Now we have Gruber saying of course they’re lying through their teeth. That’s the only way they could get it passed!

GRUBER: This bill was written in a tortured way to make sure CBO did not score the mandate as taxes. If CBO scored the mandate as taxes, the bill dies, OK? So it was written to do that. In terms of risk-rated subsidies, if you had a law which said healthy people are going to pay in, it made explicit that healthy people pay in and sick people get money, it would not have passed, OK? … Lack of transparency is a huge political advantage and basically, you know, call it the stupidity of the American voter or whatever, but basically that was really, really critical to getting the thing to pass and, you know, it’s the second best argument. Look, I wish (fellow panelist Mark Pauly, University of Pennsylvania economist) was right, we could make it all transparent, but I’d rather have this law than not.””

Impeachment Is The Answer To Presidential Lawlessness

OBAMA_-_Pompous___Smug

President Obama has done many things that were outside of his authority as chief executive. As each one was accomplished and never opposed by Republicans he took it to the next level. For examples, look at the many changes he made – by himself – to the Affordable Care Act. That act was passed by the Congress and any changes to it, by law, must be made in Congress. The President does not have authority to do so.

But he did. People accepted those and he continued doing it. It was, and is, the Congress’ job to call him on each and every violation. But they didn’t. At first it was because both houses were controlled by the Democrats. Then it was just the Senate that was. Under those conditions impeachment would have little result. The law says impeachment is to begin in the House of Representatives. If they decide to impeach the question goes to the Senate to determine whether to remove him. That was not going to happen with Harry Reid in control.

This President thinks he is immune to impeachment because Vice-President Biden would ascend to his office. Some Republicans are afraid of that as well. But the lawlessness must be stopped.

It is all coming to a head because President Obama is planning to grant amnesty to millions of illegal aliens – by himself. If that happens the Congress must initiate impeachment.

Andrew McCarthy, in an article for National Review titled, ‘The Point Of Impeachment’, explains just how serious it is to have a lawless President and then goes on to explain the hows and whys of impeachment. He says:

But when I made that argument, critics (including some on the right) claimed that I was trying to criminalize policy disputes, that impeachment was overkill.

It was a half-baked critique: (a) impeachment is not a criminal-law process but a political one; (b) I was emphatic that the constitutional problem was not Obama’s policies, with which I disagree, but his unconstitutional manner of imposing them, with which everyone should disagree; and (c) I also stressed that the goal of highlighting presidential lawlessness should not be to impeach the president but to revive impeachment as the credible threat that the Framers intended it to be – — the idea is to try to bend Obama into honoring his oath to execute the laws faithfully, such that the political case for impeachment would become viable but resorted to only if Obama remained defiant.”

How very well said. For some reason the climate in American discussion has been turned around. Impeachment of the President is laughed at by most. That needs to end. And this President needs to be reined in.

Don’t Believe Everything You Hear On The News

Media talkers would have us believe that the GOP led Congress is afraid of shutting down the government for fear of public backlash. It’s talk like that that the public is lashing out against as was illustrated by the results of the mid-term elections. It sounds like there are a few left in the Congress who are not willing to let media make their decisions for them.

The news reader in this clip is not very much like those on the MSM but she gets the point across.

Shutdown talk grows in GOP

Conservative House Republicans say they’re willing to shut down the government to prevent President Obama from carrying out what they see as unconstitutional actions on immigration.

Tea Party lawmakers emboldened by the GOP’s big midterm gains say they will insist on attaching a policy rider to legislation keeping the government open that would block funding for agencies carrying out Obama’s promised executive actions limiting deportations.”

Goober Video #6: ACA Was Designed To Kill Health Insurance

In Jon Gruber’s Newest (Sixth) Video, He Explains How Obama and Democrats Conspired to Get Rid of Tax Exemptions for All Insurance Plans Without Anyone Noticing

Economists have called for 40 years to get rid of the regressive, inefficient and expensive tax subsidy provided for employer provider health insurance,” Gruber said at the Pioneer Institute for public policy research in Boston. The subsidy is “terrible policy,” Gruber said.
“It turns out politically it’s really hard to get rid of,” Gruber said. “And the only way we could get rid of it was first by mislabeling it, calling it a tax on insurance plans rather than a tax on people when we all know it’s a tax on people who hold those insurance plans.”

General Martin Dempsey tells House committee that he would consider abandoning Obama’s pledge and send troops to fight Isis in Iraq

The top-ranking officer in the American military said on Thursday that the US is actively considering the direct use of troops in the toughest upcoming fights against the Islamic State (Isis) in Iraq, less than a week after Barack Obama doubled troop levels there.

General Martin Dempsey, the chairman of the joint chiefs of staff, indicated to the House of Representatives armed services committee that the strength of Isis relative to the Iraqi army may be such that he would recommend abandoning Obama’s oft-repeated pledge against returning US ground troops to combat in Iraq.”

#AskDrH what’s the CO2 footprint of cremating an excess human being?

#AskDrH Which is your favorite fudge factor in climate models, aerosols, clouds, volcanic dust or water vapor feedback?

#askDrH Do you still think we should sterilize third world people through their water supplies to prevent overpopulation?

“It Is Time For Democrats And The Media To Destroy Obama” (?)

hillary_obama_glare_reuters-548x411

I have not heard this anywhere else but it makes a certain amount of sense. We know that there is no love lost between the Clintons and the President. He did, after all, use the race card against them in order to get the nomination in 2008.

The Clintons are also very interested in separating themselves from what is perceived as Obama’s failures. But they are all of one mind. They are all far left idealogues and are devotees of Saul Alinsky.

But we must remember that Alinsky taught just this action. It seems that they must separate Hillary from Obama. It makes no difference that they are two peas in the same pod. Hillary must tell us she is a winner and he is a loser.

We shall see.

This is from I’m41:

For a year now, I have been telling you that both Hillary and the liberal media would start a full-scale attack on Barack Obama after the midterm losses. That time has arrived.

After the midterms Hillary will use the liberal media to go on a full-scale attack on Barack Obama. Her base, the dyed-in-the-wool commies, will know where her heart is. They will know that she is just posturing.””

obama jarrett01

Almost since the start of Barack Obama’s presidency, people who have actual, real duties in the West Wing of the White House—the working, executive part of the government, that is—have been urging him to do something about Valerie Jarrett. Push her into the East Wing, where she can hang out with Michelle Obama and the White House social secretary, or give her an ambassadorship—or something—but for Pete’s sake get her out of the way of the hard work of governing that needs to be done.

Now it’s really time to do it.”

A new batch of emails from Attorney General Eric Holder were revealed on Friday, further demonstrating just how frustrated he became over Congress’ investigation into the “Fast and Furious” gun-walking scandal.

In one Aug. 30 email, he wrote of his critics, “Some people can kiss my ass.”

The newly released emails are a result of the roughly 64,000 documents the U.S. Department of Justice was ordered to hand over to the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee. President Barack Obama previously exerted executive privilege to keep the documents from being released.”
