Why Obama fails and succeeds

gty_obama_trayvon_LARGE

Family Security Matters

Barack Obama fails because of the content of his character. He is amoral, lacking an ability to judge himself or his actions by any value or virtue. In his mind, Obama is good not because he is honest or wise; Obama is good because he is Obama. The implicit pattern of all his self-appraisals is: “It’s good because I like it”-”It’s right because I did it”-”It’s true because I want it to be true.”

It is not an expression of accomplishment, pride or self-esteem, but reveals the presence of a vacuum; a stagnant, arrested mentality matching his faith in the stagnant, arrested policies of modern American far-left liberalism.

The FEC Embraces Fascism – Implements Conservative Book Banning

NoisyRoom.net

Who says fascism is out of style? Evidently the FEC is making it chic again. The Chairman of the Federal Election Commission berated Democratic colleagues who imposed rules on the publisher of Rep. Paul Ryan’s new book, The Way Forward. In essence, they opened the door to future book regulations or even the banning of books. The meeting got heated to say the least and in the end, the FEC declined to definitively spare book publishers from the reach of campaign finance rules. Stoke the fires boys! We’ve got some book burnin’ to do!!!

“That is a shame. … We have wounded the free-press clause of the First Amendment,” Goodman told FoxNews.com after the tense meeting. Goodman previously has warned that the commission wants to start regulating media.

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy Calls Constitution “Flawed”

Moonbattery

We rely on the Supreme Court to defend the Constitution from the endless assaults on it that chip away our liberty. Too bad Supreme Court Justices don’t have a higher opinion of the document. Ruth Bader Ginsberg has denounced it, recommending instead the socialist constitution of South Africa. The odious Stephen Breyer appears to attack it at every opportunity (e.g., here, here, and here). Now we hear this from swing vote Anthony Kennedy:

Supreme Court Justice Anthony Kennedy, speaking at the annual conference of the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in Monterey, waxed eloquent on the deficiencies of the Constitution and implied that those who believe in the original intent of the Constitution by swearing fealty to the original, literal meaning are misguided.

Most of Kennedy’s nearly hour-long speech focused on the Magna Carta, originally signed in 1215 and due for its 800th anniversary next year. But he couldn’t resist taking a swipe at the Constitution, noting, “The Constitution of the United States is a flawed document,” its “thinly veiled language… basically reaffirmed the legality of slavery.” Kennedy was referencing the section of the Constitution in which each slave was defined as three-fifths of a person in the estimation of how many congressional delegates each state was allotted. He added that the soldiers who died in the Civil War were “one of the things it cost for having a Constitution that was flawed.”

At the time the Constitution was written, the economy of the southern states was totally reliant on slave labor. A constitution forbidding slavery would never have held the nation together, because no southern state would have agreed to it.

As liberals tend to forget, slavery was a nearly ubiquitous feature of civilization throughout the world until it was largely ended by Anglo-Saxons in the 19th century, the British navy playing a major role.

Presenting a constitution forbidding slavery in 18th century America would have been a waste of everyone’s time.

That doesn’t mean the Constitution is flawed. It means that it sometimes needs to be amended to keep pace with changing times — as it has been. This is a relatively superficial process, very different from proclaiming the whole thing to be flawed and rejecting it in favor of a “living constitution” that says whatever the prevailing majority wants it to say at any given moment.

Unsurprisingly, the main person the Supremes need to defend the Constitution against also regards it as “deeply flawed.”

The Secret Government Rulebook For Labeling You a Terrorist

The Obama administration has quietly approved a substantial expansion of the terrorist watchlist system, authorizing a secret process that requires neither “concrete facts” nor “irrefutable evidence” to designate an American or foreigner as a terrorist, according to a key government document obtained by The Intercept.

The “March 2013 Watchlisting Guidance,” a 166-page document issued last year by the National Counterterrorism Center, spells out the government’s secret rules for putting individuals on its main terrorist database, as well as the no fly list and the selectee list, which triggers enhanced screening at airports and border crossings. The new guidelines allow individuals to be designated as representatives of terror organizations without any evidence they are actually connected to such organizations, and it gives a single White House official the unilateral authority to place “entire categories” of people the government is tracking onto the no fly and selectee lists. It broadens the authority of government officials to “nominate” people to the watchlists based on what is vaguely described as “fragmentary information.” It also allows for dead people to be watchlisted.

The Third World Has Arrived

Family Security Matters

Nearly eight years ago, I wrote The Third World Cometh…and Soon. The third world has now arrived, and America – as you and I know it – is all but gone.

The Obama-engineered “humanitarian” border crisis is the latest shameful example of just how far the government that is supposed to protect its own citizens will go, in order to further the total destruction of a once great nation.  Once again the politically correct have pulled out a well-worn page from their playbook to implore that it is “for the children”- children who are “undocumented”. Many of these so-called “undocumented children” are disease ridden with scabies, lice and worse. In addition, it has been reported that a number of them are teenagers who are members of criminal gangs such as MS13 or members of jihadist terrorist groups.

In fact, former US Border Patrol Deputy Chief Ronald Coburn has stated that 1 in 5 illegal aliens crossing our border has a criminal record:

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.

Photo 1

“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.

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.

An Obama-Caused Border Disaster

National Review

It is a grave error to view the swarming of illegal aliens across our southern border as anything other than a challenge to our sovereignty — a challenge abetted, rather than repulsed, by a president who vows to “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” The challenge brings into sharp relief a question I’ve repeatedly pressed (see, e.g., here, here, here, and here): If the states cannot or will not defend themselves, are they still, in any real sense, sovereign?

illegal-immigration-for-dummies

As expected, the president’s mainstream-media allies portray Obama as a man struggling to manage a crisis beyond his control, a crisis their thin and exhausted playbook instructs them to blame on George W. Bush. Nonsense.
