Having had his omnipotence chipped away at last week, President Obama has – seemingly – been pushed too far by the Supreme Court’s decision on contraception and Obamacare this morning: The White House stated…
- SUPREME COURT DECISION ON CONTRACEPTION COVERAGE JEOPARDIZES HEALTH OF WOMEN EMPLOYED BY THESE COMPANIES
- WILL WORK WITH CONGRESS TO MAKE SURE WOMEN AFFECTED BY RULING WILL HAVE SAME ACCESS TO CONTRACEPTION
- WILL CONSIDER WHETHER PRESIDENT CAN ACT ON HIS OWN TO MITIGATE EFFECT OF SUPREME COURT RULING
Totalitarian? You decide… One wonders if the phrase “do you know who I am?” was uttered this morning?
As The Hill adds,
White House press secretary Josh Earnest said women should be able to “make personal health decisions for themselves,” and called contraception “vital” to the health and well-being of women.
“We will, of course, respect the Supreme Court ruling,” he added.

The Daily Sheeple
By Ron Paul
This week Americans will enjoy Independence Day with family cookouts and fireworks. Flags will be displayed in abundance. Sadly, however, what should be a celebration of the courage of those who risked so much to oppose tyranny will instead be turned into a celebration of government, not liberty. The mainstream media and opportunistic politicians have turned Independence Day into the opposite of what was intended. The idea of opposing — by force if necessary — a tyrannical government has been turned into a celebration of tyrannical government itself!
The evidence is all around us.
As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible?
On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.
Now the feds are spreading these disease vectors from sea to shining sea, stuffed full of HIV, scabies, TB, swine flu, MRSA staph infections, syphilis, and other communicable infestations. “One person can infect a thousand people, and then that thousand can infect thousands more. There is an exponential increase,” warns public health expert Dr. Elizabeth Van Vliet.
Already, Border Patrol agents are getting sick from these contacts; soon these kids will start showing up in your public school. If you found it annoying when little Jake caught that cold that was going around, wait till he comes home with swine flu.
By every economic measure, we are better off now than we were when I took office. You wouldn’t know it, but we are,” the president said Friday.
That’s right, the president — the president of the United States, mind you — says Americans are better off, they just don’t know it.
That is the height to which the president has raised his level of mendacity. He has the sheer audacity to tell Americans that he has successfully turned the economy around, that things are all good, but that there are no real quantifiable indicators by which they could ever know that.
In fact, Mr. Obama says Americans have never had it so good.
“Over the past 51 months, our businesses have created 9.4 million new jobs,” he said at a feel-good stop in Minnesota. “Our housing market is rebounding. Our auto industry is booming. Our manufacturing sector is adding jobs for the first time since the 1990s. We’ve made our tax code fairer. We’ve cut our deficits by more than half. More than 8 million Americans have signed up for private insurance plans through the Affordable Care Act.”
Of course, as usual with the president, none of that is true. In 2007, there were 146.6 million Americans employed. Last month, there were 145.7 million people in the workforce. But it’s all worse than that. The labor force participation rate dropped more than 3 percentage points, which equals nearly 8 million people. Now, just 62.8 percent of working-age Americans hold jobs, a dismal number that’s the lowest in 35 years….

It’s an Obama world.
The US Air Force kicked Christian Gideon’s volunteers off base in March.
The Bibles were too offensive and violated the separation of church and state rule.
But US military personnel are expected to adhere Islamic practices during Ramadan.
Stars and Stripes reported:
U.S. personnel accustomed to drinking their coffee on the drive to work will have to put that habit on hold for about a month. It’s one of a few lifestyle changes Americans will have to make during the holy month of Ramadan.
Ramadan is the ninth month of the Islamic calendar. Officials expect Ramadan to begin at sunrise on Saturday, depending on when the new moon is sighted. The holy month lasts for approximately 30 days — until about July 28. For Muslims around the world, Ramadan is a month of fasting and devotion to God. Most Muslims fast from dawn to sunset, when families gather for Iftar — the meal that breaks the fast.
For the 8,200 U.S. personnel living here, and those serving throughout the U.S. Central Command area of responsibility — including servicemembers, civilian personnel, contractors and family members — the month may require changing some daily routines.
Businesses and government offices will reduce hours and most restaurants will be closed during daylight hours.
While not required to fast during Ramadan, in Bahrain, Americans can be fined or detained by local authorities for eating, drinking or smoking in public when off-base during daylight hours.
Navy officials are requiring U.S. personnel to dress more conservatively off-base during Ramadan. Although not a requirement by Bahraini authorities, the Navy is demanding that men wear long-sleeved shirts and women wear sleeved blouses that cover their elbows. Also, men must wear long trousers, and women should wear pants or skirts that cover the knees.
This is what happens at the border of a nation that is run by a band of tyrannical looters who could not care less about defending the country or attending to the primary responsibilities of a legitimate government:
Border Patrol agents in Arizona were reportedly fired upon by a Mexican military helicopter that traveled across the border. … The Mexican chopper fired at the agents and then flew back into Mexico.
No worries, Mexican authorities say they intended to shoot at drug smugglers — the folks our “government” arms.
Tomás Zerón, the director of the Mexican attorney general’s office investigative office, said that Mexican military and federal police who were conducting an operation on a ranch in Altar, Sonora, were shot at by criminals. Mexican authorities never fired any weapons and in fact never crossed into the U.S. side of the border, he said.
Art Del Cueto, Border Patrol Tucson Sector union president, tells KVOA-TV, though, that they called and apologized for the incident.
They did it by accident, they didn’t do it, and they are sorry they did it. So you can see why our “president” won’t bother to respond, any more than he has responded to the pleas for help from the US Marine Mexico is still incarcerating as an effective POW in our one-sided border war.
Fortunately the agents were unharmed this time. But incursions into our undefended country by the Mexican military are a regular occurrence now. Next time the agents might not be so lucky.
It could be that Mexico was sending a message regarding who calls the shots at the border, now that the USA is leaderless and therefore pathetically weak. If they think the message wasn’t received, they might send a louder one.
In the absence of a federal government willing to defend America’s interests or even its territory, Texas is sending armed troops to the border. Texas might need those armed troops on its northern border as well if the situation under Obama gets any worse.
