One Bad Apple: Obama and his Influence

American Thinker

From the beginning America has worked to avoid the tyranny of the monarchy; our forefathers saw up close and personal the disastrous effects of a king gone bad. George III (1738 to 1820) reigned for almost 60 years — which would have been bad enough without the fact that for the last 10 or those years George was stark raving mad. We’re only 6 years into a presidency gone bad and I, for one, am profoundly thankful that there won’t be another 50+ years of this terrifying laughingstock of a regime.

Barack Obama has created so much havoc with his ideology and policies that it will take us years to recover. His high-handed, pen-and-phone end runs around the Constitution ought to land him in prison, but he is creating the biggest mess by just being who he is.

Obama State Department urges “all sides to maintain calm” after Hamas murders baby

Jihad Watch

Unconscionable and morally outrageous, but not at all surprising coming from the relentlessly anti-Israel Obama Administration. “Immoral: State Dept. Urges ‘All Sides to Maintain Calm’ After Hamas Murders Baby,” by David Steinberg, PJ Media, October 22, 2014:

At what point does a political hack choose to sacrifice one’s grasp of right and wrong for the job, or for the cause? Time and again, this election season has shown Washington’s careerists to be capable of just about any negation of ethics towards the goals of a campaign, and we’ve certainly seen that from this State Department before, most notably when Hillary Clinton lied about the Benghazi attack to a victim’s family, alongside his body.

But a baby was just thrown “10 to 20 meters” through the air and landed on her head.

The following quote is what the Obama administration, via Jen Psaki, came up with. Bear in mind that the deceased child — called “a pure girl with a holy soul” by her stricken grandfather, and what words could better describe a three-month old – is an American citizen:

Not even a Supreme Court Justice could find the constitutional authority to spend our confiscated money on any of this demented crapola.

Meanwhile, the national debt rockets toward $18 trillion, a number too vast for the human mind to properly comprehend, with no sign of slowing despite the steady upward creep of taxation.

Obama Asserts Fast and Furious Executive Privilege Claim for Holder’s Wife

Judicial Watch announced today that it received from the Obama Department of Justice (DOJ) a “Vaughn index” detailing records about the Operation Fast and Furious scandal.  The index was forced out of the Obama administration thanks to JW’s June 2012 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request and subsequent September 2012 FOIA lawsuit (Judicial Watch v. Department of Justice (No. 1:12-cv-01510)).  A federal court had ordered the production over the objections of the Obama Justice Department.

The document details the Attorney General Holder’s personal involvement in managing the Justice Department’s strategy on media and Congressional investigations into the Fast and Furious scandal.  Notably, the document discloses that emails between Attorney General Holder and his wife Sharon Malone – as well as his mother – are being withheld under an extraordinary claim of executive privilege as well as a dubious claim of deliberative process privilege under the Freedom of Information Act.  The “First Lady of the Justice Department” is a physician and not a government employee.

The Democratic Campaign Platform: Lie to Win

American Thinker

President Obama “giftwrapped” the truth Monday, when he told Al Sharpton that Democratic candidates are lying when they distance themselves from him. The Washington Post summed it up:

lyingtoAmerica-300

Obama’s comments not only “suggested the election was indeed something of a referendum on him…but that Democratic candidates are actually on-board with him — something most of them have made pains to argue is not the case. Obama’s comments are the kind of thing Democrats might privately say to assure donors and the party base, but wouldn’t really say in public.”

In other words, straight from the mouth of one liar to another: “Do what you need to do to win.”

Former Judge Reveals Details of Obama’s Frightening New Plan for Americans

Conservative Tribune

Fox News judicial analyst and former judge Andrew Napolitano has always kept a vigilant eye on the government and has repeatedly warned us when there is a “Constitutional crisis,” several of which have occurred under the Obama administration.

Obama Can Use Same Parole in Illegal Alien “Humanitarian Crisis” to Bring Ebola Patients to U.S.

JUDICIAL WATCH

The Obama administration has shunned multiple requests to respond to a disturbing report exposing its secret plan to admit Ebola-infected foreigners into the United States for treatment and now Congress has joined Judicial Watch to demand answers.

Will the administration blow off Congress the way it has Judicial Watch? In the last couple of days JW has contacted a number of  government agencies that may be involved in the backdoor plan for comment but all except one have ignored the requests, both telephonic and by electronic mail. Only the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) offered a response, albeit a curt one. “We have nothing for you on that,” CDC spokeswoman Amesheia Buckner told JW this week.

Other agencies, such as the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), simply discounted JW’s requests-both verbal and in writing-for comment. Specifically, the Obama administration’s goal is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis, according to high-level sources that provided JW with details of the scheme. It includes special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.
