Is Anything Obama’s Fault?

American Thinker

President Obama blamed the recent influx of unaccompanied children crossing our southern border on violence in Central America. I expected the usual media suspects to support Obama’s narrative, as well as the ever-popular Blame-Bush excuse. I did not expect the usually more rational Wall Street Journal, and specifically Mary Anastasia O’Grady (whom I had admired), to support them.

“Well, I think, Paul, what you have is a combination of factors, both push-and-pull factors. So from Central America, you have lots of crime and violence… the effect of the war on drugs in Central America has created chaos and a breakdown of institutions in Central America… And the pull factors, I think, are, first of all, most important, is an asylum opportunity that children have because of a law passed in 2008 during the Bush administration –”

There they go again: violence in Central America and, of course, Bush. It’s everyone’s fault except Obama’s. (By the way, the 2008 Wilberforce bill was sponsored by a California Democrat and passed in the Senate with “unanimous consent” when Barack Obama was a Senator. Bush signed it after Obama had won the election in November.)

IRS Asks Contractors For Help With Destroying 3,200 Hard Drives…

IRS

Weasel Zippers

Nice timing, IRS.

Via Washington Times:

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives.

The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight.

Congressional investigators of the IRS targeting of conservative groups have been hampered by the unexplained destruction of emails and other records of Ms. Lerner, the former head of the IRS tax-exempt division and a central figure in the scandal.

The loss of Ms. Lerner’s hard drive also raised broader questions about why the tax agency never reported the missing records to the National Archives and Records Administration, as required by the Federal Records Act.

While those questions remained unresolved, IRS officials signaled plans to destroy tens of thousands of additional electronic records.

“After all media are destroyed, they must not be capable of any reuse or information retrieval,” IRS officials stated in the contract papers.

State Dept. Refused Sandbags & Machine Gun at Benghazi Consulate- “It Would Upset the Neighbors”

Gateway Pundit

The Obama State Department refused a request by staffers in Benghazi for sandbags and a belt-fed machine gun to help to increase security at the consulate.

They were told it wasn’t “aesthetically pleasing” and “would upset the neighbors.”

Nearly a year before the Benghazi attack on 9-11 2012, the consulate warned the State Department under Hillary Clinton that an Islamic militia group had moved in right next door.

Oklahoma Governor: ICE Sent Us 1,200 Illegal Alien Children – Including 90 From India

Weasel Zippers

Via GWP

Governor Mary Fallin (R-OK) told Maria Bartiromo on Sunday Morning Futures that the feds sent 1,200 illegal immigrant children to Oklahoma to hold for 120 days. 90 of those illegal children were from India.

“Because they are children, we want them to be fed, and have appropriate medical care, certainly be safe within the facilities, and they’re segregated. BUt, one of the things I’ve heard since they’ve been there and it was reported while I was there actually, that there were not only El Salvadoran children, and Honduras, and Guatemala, but there were 90 children reported to be from India that were actually at the facility. And, one of the case workers told my secretary of health that we had people there besides South American children.”

Obama Admin Sending $47 Million To Hamas-Run Gaza Strip…

Weasel Zippers

Obama may be shocked to learn not everyone is OK with their tax dollars going to Hamas.

CAIRO (AP) – The U.S. is sending $47 million in humanitarian aid to the besieged Gaza Strip to help tens of thousands of Palestinians there who have been forced from their homes since war broke out two weeks ago.

A State Department breakdown of the aid that was released Monday said nearly a third of the money — $15 million — will go to the United Nations’ refugee mission in Gaza.

U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry was expected to discuss the aid with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon in a meeting late Monday in Cairo.

Kerry arrived in the Egyptian capital only hours earlier in a U.S. push to help broker a truce between Israel and the militant group Hamas that controls Gaza.

WH Beer Recipe More Important Than Marine Jailed in Mexico?

The Sean Hannity Show

It has been almost 3 months since a WhiteHouse.gov petitioncreated to demand the release of Sgt. Andrew from a Mexican prison reached its 100,000 signature threshold. Unfortunately, the White House has thus far remained mum on the situation. They have in the past, however, found time to respond to childish, insignificant petitions faster than to one that demands the release of a decorated U.S. Marine veteran who was at one time facing abuse and death threats in a Mexican prison.

Below are three ridiculous WhiteHouse.gov petitions that received faster responses from the Obama Administration than Sgt. Tahmooressi’s:

1. Formally acknowledge an extraterrestrial presence engaging the human race – Disclosure
Created: September 22, 2011
White House Reply: November 4, 2011

2. Release the recipe for the Honey Ale home brewed at the White House
Created: August 18, 2012
White House Reply: September 1, 2012

*This was such a pressing topic that the president found time out of his busy schedule to respond to an inquisitive Reddit.com user during a “Ask Me Anything” session on the social media site. When asked when the beer recipe will be released, Obama replied, “It will be out soon! I can tell from firsthand experience, it is tasty.” The response was one of only 10 answers the president gave during the forum session.

3. Secure resources and funding, and begin construction of a Death Star by 2016
Created: November 14, 2012
Reached required number of signatures: December 14, 2012
White House Reply: January 12, 2013

*For readers unfamiliar with Star Wars, the “Death Star” is a fictional space station with the ability to destroy an “entire planet.”

There you have it, folks. Your tax dollars are hard at work crafting responses to petty White House petitions, while an urgent plea to help a former U.S. Marine has so far been ignored.

US Government turns fully against Americans and few seem to care

CFP

Sher Zieve 

Over last weekend, it finally got out—despite suppression from the White House and the media—that the Mexican drug cartels/human traffickers are now firing .50 caliber ammo at our USBP Agents.  These are bullets that can reach their targets as much as a mile away.  This is an act of war.

Yet, neither the Pretend POTUS and Dictator-in-Chief Barack Hussein Obama nor any of his minions comment on it at all.  Neither does Obama try to stop the thousands of illegals (largely gang members, drug cartels/human traffickers and Islamists…not children) that he has invited into the country as a foreign invasion force to replace US citizens and help him bring down the USA.  Besides, he’s already decimated most of the US military, demanded the Border Patrol “stand down” and no longer attempts to stop anyone entering the USA while placing them on diaper and baby-sitting duties for the children coming in with their parents.  What difference would some USBP deaths—or any additional US citizen deaths—mean to him?  He does, after all, have a 17-day vacation in August coming up.

U.S. to Give Iran Another $2.8 Billion, Concedes Enrichment

Free Beacon

The United States will give Iran access to another $2.8 billion over the next several months and appears to have conceded to Iran’s demand that it be permitted to domestically enrich uranium, the key component in a nuclear weapon, according to senior Obama administration officials.

In exchange for agreeing over the weekend to extend nuclear talks until late November, Iran will be given another $2.8 billion in unfrozen assets, the White House told reporters over the weekend, after President Barack Obama decided to extend the talks past their July 20 deadline.

The United States already returned to Iran $4.2 billion in unfrozen oil assets during the past six months of the interim nuclear deal and has now agreed to provide another $2.8 billion in exchange for an extension in the negotiations.

White House officials also appeared to admit that U.S. negotiators have told Tehran that they will allow it to preserve some of its domestic enrichment capabilities, something that Congress has opposed.

What Would Cause President Obama to Cancel a Fundraiser?

PJ Media

What “tragedy” would be horrific enough for President Obama to cancel his usual schedule of speeches, lunches and fundraisers?

9-11

A commercial airliner shot down over Ukraine with Americans aboard?  No.

How about a terrorist attack on the American consulate in Benghazi on the anniversary of 9/11, killing our ambassador and three others? No.

Perhaps news that Israel has begun a ground offensive in the Gaza Strip? No way.

Obviously our president believes that any change to his schedule is a sign of weakness (and God forbid our commander in chief appear weak).

So today, despite the breaking news of possible Russian involvement with the missile attack against a Malaysian Airlines airliner carrying 295 passengers, crew and over 20 Americans, President Obama forged ahead with his previously planned infrastructure speech in Delaware. (But first he paused for a few seconds to say, “looks like it may be a terrible tragedy.” ) Then he proceeded as normal, including some lighthearted remarks.

Afterwards, he grabbed a burger and fries (“I’m starving” he was quoted as saying), and tonight he will attend a few fundraisers in New York. Just a typical day in the life of our 44th president. Obama is aiding world tranquility after all!

Therefore, my question is what kinds of national or international “tragedies”  would cause President Obama to cancel his fundraisers, partisan speeches and visits to burger joints?

Here is my list of the top five:

1. News that Beyonce and Jay Z are divorcing.

2. His favorite golf course was attacked by al-Qaeda.

3. Lebron James unexpectedly retired.

4. Air Force One was hijacked by the Tea Party.

5. A tsunami destroyed his August vacation compound on Martha’s Vineyard.

Now it’s your turn to add a few of your own…..
