NYP: “2 NYPD cops shot dead ‘execution style’ as ‘revenge’ for Garner”

Obama, Holder, and Sharpton are starting things.

Brooklyn cops shot

Two uniformed NYPD officers were shot dead Saturday afternoon as they sat in their marked police car on a Brooklyn street corner — in what investigators believe was a crazed gunman’s execution-style mission to avenge Eric Garner and Michael Brown.
“It’s an execution,” one law enforcement source said of the 3 p.m. shooting of the two officers, whose names were being withheld pending family notification of their deaths.”

“Judicial Watch Forces Release Of Photos Of Gang Attack With Fast & Furious Rifle”

‘Obama Specials’ is what Bob Owens is calling the Fast and Furious guns when they show up at a crime scene. I like it.

I won’t post images of the crime scene.

Two sources for this:

Bearing Arms refers us to Judicial Watch.

This 7.62×39 WASR AKM “Obama Special” used in a 2013 gang attack in Phoenix, AZ, is one of thousands of weapons provided to narco-terrorists in one of the Obama Department of Justice’s gun smuggling operations.

This 7.62×39 WASR AKM “Obama Special” used in a 2013 gang attack in Phoenix, AZ, is one of thousands of weapons provided to narco-terrorists in one of the Obama Department of Justice’s gun smuggling operations.

Judicial Watch announced today that it has obtained graphic crime scene photos taken at the site of a 2013 gang-style assault on a Phoenix, AZ, apartment building, including a close-up photo revealing the serial number of the AK-47 rifle used by the assailants. As a result of Judicial Watch’s October 2, 2014, public records lawsuit, the weapon has been already traced to the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) Operation Fast and Furious gunrunning program. The photos were also produced by the Phoenix Police Department in response to this lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. City of Phoenix (No. CV2014- 012018)).”

“1,000 soldiers from the 82nd Airborne headed to Iraq”

How many men now have boots on the ground in Iraq?

Oh, that’s right. The President said, “None”.

Politico: “In new interview, Obamas recall personal racial slights”

AP Photo

The first two paragraphs of the Politico article are these:

Barack and Michelle Obama are sharing their own personal experiences with racial prejudice, saying they’ve been mistaken for valet drivers and Target employees — the latter even occurring during their time at the White House.

“The only person who came up to me in the [Target] store was a woman who asked me to help her take something off a shelf. Because she didn’t see me as the first lady, she saw me as someone who could help her,” Michelle Obama told People magazine, recalling a trip she made to Target, according to excerpts released Wednesday.”

Yep. Definitely racist. The poor baby did not get recognized as the queen.

But, but, but, is it possible that it was caused by the fact that she dressed down to hide her identity?

“BREAKING: Obama To Start Talks With Cuba To Establish Full Diplomatic Relations, Open Embassy”

This may not be a bad thing. It may save some Cuban lives by improving conditions there.

Cuba was once a great place for Americans to party. They had casinos, hookers, dog tracks, Jai Alai, and Bacardi rum. Now we have all that stuff. They may have to come up with a new schtick to lure American tourists.

Maybe it’ll be their excellent health care.

Palin To Congress: “Kill The Omnibus Spending Bill”

She’s right. We didn’t throw out the bums so they could be replaced by more bums. You in the Congress promised to stop Obama. You are now telling us that you are going to fund his madness.

From her Facebook page, former Alaskan Governor Sarah Palin advises House members to kill the bill:

Grant me this use of America’s voice:

When you cut through all the “inside baseball” stuff in this Omnibus Spending Bill that’s in front of Congress, you’re left with two cold hard facts: this bill doesn’t defund Obama’s amnesty (so he gets to reward lawbreakers with your tax dollars) and it adds to our dangerous, unsustainable debt. It also breaks campaign promises made by quite a few of our incumbent politicians on both sides of the aisle. Hey, if you thought we wanted more of the same as we worked our butts off to get good folks elected in November, then why did we vote to oust liberals who got America into this mess in the first place? Guess what, GOP: our victory party is over and voters are wide awake and trusting you to keep your promises to America.”

What Is The Difference Between Issuing An Executive Order And Making Law By Fiat?

Actually, quite a lot. Law by fiat gives up all pretenses of legality.

President Obama went on national TV and announced that he was issuing an Executive Order that gave amnesty to millions of undocumented aliens. Then he never signed such an order. He just sent out a memo. But the nation is acting as though he did and as if it’s legitimate.

SunKingObama

“EXECUTIVE AMNESTY ORDER? WHAT ORDER?

Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., a leading opponent of President Obama’s move to provide amnesty for up to 5 million illegal immigrants, expressed astonishment Monday and ridiculed the administration for not carrying out the action through an executive order.

In remarks made at the Washington office of the government-watchdog group Judicial Watch, Sessions said: “I guess they just whispered in the ear of (DHS Director) Jeh Johnson over at Homeland Security, ‘Just put out a memo. That way we don’t have to enforce the law.’”

Legitimate Question: ‘Why Did Obama Get A CT Scan For A Sore Throat?’

obama smoking1

Why Did The President Get A CT Scan For A Sore Throat?

That’s the question asked at the White House press briefing this afternoon by Fox News White House reporter Ed Henry, noting that even medical experts were puzzled.

“Most people who have a sore throat do not get a CT scan,” Henry said.

“Most people are not the president of the United States,” Earnest quipped.

Earnest added that he wasn’t a “medical professional” but pointed out that Obama’s doctors felt that it was necessary.”

It’s an easy observation to make. Many, many long-time cigarette smokers end up getting conditions that require expensive things like CT scans, radiation treatments, and surgery. Barack Obama has been a smoker for a long time.

December 7, 1941 Day of Infamy

On December 7, 1941 the United States was attacked by Japanese forces in Hawaii. That act started World War II in the Pacific. Let us never forget the perfidy of that act.

During peace talks between the US and Japan the Japanese military nearly destroyed the American Pacific fleet in one calculated attack. That was their intent and they nearly did it. Had they succeeded the United States Navy would have been crippled and the outcome of the war might have been different.

Today we face enemies who are every bit as willing to use treachery to subdue our country. Much like Franklin Roosevelt we have leaders who believe they can reason with evil men. President Obama believes this and Hillary Clinton does.

Like Roosevelt, someone will take advantage of their naivete’. Count on it.

I Shoulda Started A Solar Panel Company

Somebody is making out. That someone is Warren Buffet.

This is an overview of the 4,700 acre Topaz Solar Farm that is under construction in California.

The $2.5 billion project includes 9 million thin-film technology based CdTe PV panels manufactured by First Solar. The company will also build, operate and maintain the project for MidAmerican Renewables, a Berkshire Hathaway Company.”

Berkshire Hathaway? Where have I heard that before?

Oh, yeah. That’s the company that’s owned by Warren Buffet.

Reggie Love Has A Book Out

Love and Obama

Love and Obama

This will be interesting.

power-forward-9781476763347_lg

Simon and Schuster has this to say about Love:

Power Forward tells the story of the five years Love worked as a personal assistant to Senator Obama as a candidate for president, and President Obama, and it is a professional coming of age story like no other. What the public knows was well put by Time magazine in 2008: “[Love’s] official duties don’t come close to capturing Reggie’s close bond with Obama, who plays a role that is part boss and part big brother.” What the public doesn’t know are the innumerable private moments during which that bond was forged and the President mentored a malleable young man.”

Politico has a story about the book as well. The comments are interesting. Here’s one:

Reggie Love certainly knows what it is like to be deep inside the President’s circle.”

This book will sell well.

Sowell: ‘Ferguson Going The Way Of Detroit’

Thomas-Sowell

Thomas Sowell provides some insight into the future of places like Ferguson, Missouri. He reminds us of the cities that have experienced riots in the past.

Ferguson-african-american-business-owners-cope-with-aftermath-of-weekend-riot-450x300

What are the consequences to be expected from an orgy of anarchy that started in Ferguson, Missouri and has spread around the country?

The first victims of the mob rampages in Ferguson have been people who had nothing to do with Michael Brown or the police. These include people — many of them black or members of other minorities — who have seen the businesses they worked to build destroyed, perhaps never to be revived.

But these are only the first victims. If the history of other communities ravaged by riots in years past is any indication, there are blacks yet unborn who will be paying the price of these riots for years to come.

Sometimes it is a particular neighborhood that never recovers, and sometimes it is a whole city. Detroit is a classic example. It had the worst riot of the 1960s, with 43 deaths — 33 of them black people. Businesses left Detroit, taking with them jobs and taxes that were very much needed to keep the city viable. Middle class people — both black and white — also fled.

Harlem was one of many ghettos across the country that have still not recovered from the riots of the 1960s. In later years, a niece of mine, who had grown up in the same Harlem tenement where I grew up years earlier, bitterly complained about how few stores and other businesses there were in the neighborhood.”

Of course you know he is correct. Merchants and service providers in the Ferguson area have been burned badly and they have no solution but to leave. City, county, state, and federal government leaders have sided with the looters. The same thing happened with the ‘Occupy’ movement a couple years ago. Those leaders don’t want a solution to the destruction. If they did they would not condone – no encourage – it.

The businesses of Ferguson and surrounding areas will close, one by one, until they are all gone.

But where will these business owners go? It will be the same all across the country. The Obama administration has taken sides against them.

It’s all part of the plan.

“Dem fundraiser charged with child sex abuse met Obama often, flew on Air Force One”

Story from the Washington Times where you can read more of the sordid details.

A prominent gay rights activist charged last week with sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy is a strong supporter of President Obama who has visited the White House more than a half-dozen times in the past two years, visitor logs show.

Terrence P. Bean, 66, who raised more than a half-million dollars for Mr. Obama’s re-election campaign in 2012, last visited the White House on May 30 when he met with the president, first lady Michelle Obama and political adviser David Simas.”

“CONFIRMED: Valerie Jarrett Keeping In Touch With Gov. Nixon During Ferguson Fiasco”

Oh, no! Not another lying Democrat!

valerie-jarrett-self-praise

Missouri Governor Jay Nixon adamantly denies that the White House pressured him to resist sending in the National Guard in response to violent protesters unhappy with the Michael Brown shooting decision.

It is clear, however, that Nixon has been in close contact with President Obama’s senior advisor Valerie Jarrett as the chaotic situation unfolded. According to the White House, Jarrett spoke with Nixon the first night of the protests as well as the morning after.

Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz confirmed that Jarrett received “updates” from Nixon, “promising to stay in close touch” as the situation continued.

“Valerie spoke to Governor Nixon both last night and this morning, and has been briefing the President on an ongoing basis since last night,” Schultz said, speaking to reporters on Air Force One. “And in each of those conversations with Governor Nixon, Valerie has pledged to stay in close coordination with the Governor in making sure that he’s getting the support he needs from the federal government.”

Who Will Replace Hagel As Secretary Of Defense?

But who will it be? President Obama is not finished gutting our military and he needs a SecDef who is loyal and ruthless. He also needs someone who will follow his capricious dictates. He doesn’t have a plan to deal with Islamic militants – or any other group – and he doesn’t want a Defense Secretary who will come up with one.

Obama has only a couple of years left to accomplish his destruction. He needs people who will push the envelope on it. He needs people who are faithful and are willing to lie and lie big.

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).”

“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.”
