Obama’s ‘Core al-Qaeda Concept… Now Coming Back to Bite All of Us’

PJ Media

WASHINGTON — A possible chairman of the House Intelligence Committee in the 114th Congress warned that “every day” al-Qaeda gets stronger as the Obama administration tries to perpetuate a narrative that the infamous terror group is degraded or decimated.

Last month, al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and al-Qaeda in the Arabian Peninsula issued an unprecedented joint Twitter statement calling on Muslims “to support our people in Iraq and Sham” against “America, the source of evil and symbol of corruption and injustice.”

Obama To Allow 100,000 Haitians To Immigrate To U.S. Without Visas

New Democrats…

Via Washington Times:

The ranking Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee took the Obama administration to task Friday for its “irresponsible” plan to allow as many as 100,000 Haitians to immigrate to the U.S. without a visa.

Sen. Chuck Grassley of Iowa said the administration’s Haitian Family Reunification Parole Program — which will allow thousands of Haitians awaiting a U.S. visa to enter the country and legally apply for work permits — is “an irresponsible overreach of the executive branch’s authority.”

“Which countries are next on President Obama’s list?” Mr. Grassley said. “Will there by medical screenings before entry? Will work permits be granted automatically? How will this affect American workers?”

Obama Plans to Let Ebola-infected Foreigners Into U.S. for Treatment

by JUDICIAL WATCH

airport ebola hazmat

Washington, DC – Judicial Watch has learned that the Obama administration is actively formulating plans to admit Ebola-infected non-U.S. citizens into the United States for treatment.  Specifically, the goal of the administration is to bring Ebola patients into the United States for treatment within the first days of diagnosis.

It is unclear who would bear the high costs of transporting and treating non-citizen Ebola patients.  The plans include special waivers of laws and regulations that ban the admission of non-citizens with a communicable disease as dangerous as Ebola.

One source tells us that the Obama administration is keeping this plan secret from Congress. The source is concerned that the proposal is illegal; endangers the public health and welfare; and should require the approval of Congress.

This Massive Gang Shooting Was Just Linked to Eric Holder

Conservative Tribune

In just a matter of days, the Justice Department will finally turn over critical information contained in withheld documents relating to the scandalous Operation Fast and Furious, an ATF gun-walking sting that allowed numerous firearms to be illegally transferred to Mexican drug cartels.

The guns have been linked to hundreds of murders in Mexico, along with the murder of Border Patrol agent Brian Terry.

The release of these documents has taken on a new urgency, as evidence has recently turned up proving that guns involved in Fast and Furious are still be used to commit crimes.

If You Think Obama Is Bad Now, Wait Until After the Midterm Elections

Moonbattery

You can’t blame Obama for spending so much time golfing even as Ebola and ISIS threaten to spin out of control. He needs to rest up, because after the midterms, he is going to be very busy.

413795304_obama_shreds_constitution_answer_1_xlarge

That’s when he will have nothing left to lose, unless Republicans acquire enough spine to impeach him for incompetence, abuse of power, corruption, and/or treason. Among the brown clots that have been held back, but will soon be hitting the fan:

Obama: Waiting Will Make Immigration Executive Action ‘More Sustainable’

President Barack Obama says he’s postponing executive action on immigration until after November’s elections because it would be “more sustainable” then.

Obamacare Website Won’t Reveal Insurance Costs for 2015 Until After Election

Those planning to purchase health insurance on the Obamacare exchange will soon find out how much rates have increased — after the Nov. 4 election.

ObamaCare Chaos: Insurance Cancellations Delayed Until After the Election

The Administration is pushing another ObamaCare delay on Americans until after the 2014 election in an obvious effort to conceal the fact that millions more are about to lose their insurance.

The new plan cancellations will be sent out after the elections! The delay has been made unilaterally by the Administration because it involves millions of people who are about to lose their insurance that they hoped to keep but which Obama has determined is inferior.

Obama Waiting for Midterm to Name Attorney General

President Barack Obama does not plan to announce his choice for attorney general before the November elections, shielding the nomination from the midterm election politics while setting up a potential year-end showdown with the lame duck Senate.

Army Won’t Release Bergdahl Findings Until Midterms

The Army has completed its investigation into Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s abandonment of his Afghan post but will not release the report until after the midterm elections lest it embarrass the Obama administration.

We’ll Tell You How Dangerous Ebola Is After the Election

Okay, that last title isn’t quite on the level. The piece is well worth reading though.

In short, we will be hit with: amnesty for millions of Third World peasants who are in the country illegally, which will increase the welfare burden and likely set off a massive Third World invasion even as Ebola spreads; outrageous new ObamaCare costs after we were led to believe we would pay less for healthcare; cancelation of insurance plans we were promised repeatedly we could keep; an Attorney General if possible even more ideologically demented and openly hostile to the majority of the US population than Eric Holder; and confirmation that the cringing sad sack Obama traded five top terrorist commanders for was at the very best a deserter and possibly a deliberate defector to the Taliban who will nonetheless not be persecuted for treason.

After the midterms, stalling tactics may come to an end regarding an admission that outlandishly expensive airstrikes mostly on low-value targets will not defeat ISIS without the ground troops Obama has refused to deploy. At that point the Audacity of Hope may degenerate into arrogance sufficient for him to admit that he is fine with terrorist maniacs taking over a country that thousands of Americans recently died to liberate.

No doubt there will be more. He has a pen and a phone, after all. Who knows what final kicks to the teeth Obama will deliver in his final 2 years? Slavery reparations? Amnesty for all federal drug criminals? Depression-inducing carbon restrictions? Forgiveness of all student loans? A guaranteed living wage that would obviate any need to work? Extra Supreme Court slots for Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn? As we have been learning for years, anything is possible with this character — except of course responsible, competent, or even benevolent leadership.

Dealing with the fallout from a country that may find itself pushed to the verge of revolt will require that Obama be rested and at his best — unless he chooses to deal with the public’s rage the way he has dealt with other crises: by shrugging it off and hitting the links.

Obama-Polls
Soon he won’t have to pretend to care.

The Man Who Knew Nothing

 

Family Security Matters

The quintessential question of Watergate was “What did the President know and when did he know it?” Obamagate, the vast scandal that encompasses an entire presidency, offers a preemptive answer.

Obama didn’t know anything and he never knew it. At least not until, like smuggling weapons to druglords, bugging journalists, IRSing his political enemies and killing vets, his right hand found out about what his left hand was doing from the morning paper.

You Want Executive Action? Here’s Some Executive Action

National Review

The president promises to lawlessly amnesty millions of illegal aliens on his own say-so, enabling them to get work cards, Social Security numbers, driver’s licenses, EITC, foreign travel documents, and the rest. But there are executive powers that he really does possess that he’s not using. Senator Sessions has helpfully provided a number of “lawful, constitutional executive actions” that the president should already be undertaking but isn’t:

obama_burning_constitution

  • Complete the border fence that Congress has previously passed into law;
  • Create the exit-entry system to track foreign visa-holders, which Congress has repeatedly mandated;
  • Cancel visas to any country that won’t take back its own citizens;
  • Stop the improper issuance of billions of dollars in child tax credits to illegal immigrants,
  • Enforce the currently un-enforced public charge rule for immigrants to the U.S., both legal and illegal;
  • Crack down on abuse of the H-1B guest worker program that is displacing U.S. workers;
  • Increase, don’t reduce, prosecutions under the proven Operation Streamline;
  • Instead of suing states that are trying to enforce the law, target sanctuary cities that are defying the law; and
  • Cancel all meetings with pro-amnesty groups to plot executive amnesty, and instead meet with Chris Crane, Ken Palinkas, and Chris Cabrera (of ICE, USCIS, and Border Patrol). Instead of ordering them not to do their jobs, sit down with them ask what they need to end the lawlessness and restore integrity to our nation’s immigration system.”

My colleague Jessica Vaughan points out that the president has the authority “to deny admission to any alien that has (or cannot establish to the government’s satisfaction that he or she doesn’t have) a communicable disease of public health significance.”

And Christian Adams explains that the president has even broader power than that, citing the statute that allows him to bar entry to any foreigner for any reason:

Whenever the President finds that the entry of any aliens or of any class of aliens into the United States would be detrimental to the interests of the United States, he may by proclamation, and for such period as he shall deem necessary, suspend the entry of all aliens or any class of aliens as immigrants or nonimmigrants, or impose on the entry of aliens any restrictions he may deem to be appropriate.

So, with all these lawful executive powers, why is he ignoring them and claiming powers he does not have?
