For those who are wondering how Barack Obama — a man seemingly engaged in full-time campaigning, fundraising and rabble-rousing — could also have the bandwidth to weaken America both at home and abroad, the answer is really quite simple.
The leader of the free world is actually a woman named Valerie Jarrett, a longtime crony of Barack and Michelle Obama, who appears to call all of the shots in the Oval Office.
In the White House, Jarrett has been linked to a wide variety of scandals and other policy debacles.
There are credible reports that Jarrett blocked the attack on Osama Bin Laden’s compound on three separate occasions.
Similar reports indicate that she gave the “stand down” order to would-be rescuers in Benghazi on 9/11/2012.
Thanksgiving is over; now it’s time for Christmas. Here’s the spirit:
On a tip from Merchant of Venom.
Conservatives are not split as to whether or not Obama and his ministers have committed high crimes.
We are split over what to do about it. There is no question Obama has gathered arbitrary powers within the executive branch to make, ignore, modify congressional statutes at his whim. His administrative agencies, a shadow army of lawgivers whose identities (sans Gruber) are kept quiet and out of public view, issue dozens of unconstitutional and imperial diktats every year.
OTOH, what is certain is that impeachment of American presidents is unfortunately an historic rarity.
Taken all together, impeachment is largely viewed as a losing proposition, because despite his clear guilt, it is assumed no rat senators will cross over to convict. Modern party discipline, especially among rats, combined with the Obama news cycle is enough to instill outright terror in the hearts of those who fear doing the right thing. By this theory, impeachment will only strengthen the rats at the expense of the GOP.
So what? To be concerned with the health of either party is to lose sight of the objective, turning back tyranny and restoring freedom. The real issue that conservatives should ponder is which alternative, impeachment or no, best serves republican freedom, our freedom.
What are the downwind ramifications of letting Obama and his ministers get away once again? Amnesty is merely the last in a long list of Obama high crimes which began right away in 2009.
Is he to have two more unchallenged years?
It isn’t enough to jab the American worker in the eye with a sharp stick. Obama has to give the stick an extra twist:
Under the president’s new amnesty, businesses will have a $3,000-per-employee incentive to hire illegal immigrants over native-born workers because of a quirk of Obamacare.
President Obama’s temporary amnesty, which lasts three years, declares up to 5 million illegal immigrants to be lawfully in the country and eligible for work permits, but it still deems them ineligible for public benefits such as buying insurance on Obamacare’s health exchanges.
Under the Affordable Care Act, that means businesses who hire them won’t have to pay a penalty for not providing them health coverage — making them $3,000 more attractive than a similar native-born worker, whom the business by law would have to cover. …
A Department of Homeland Security official confirmed that the newly legalized immigrants won’t have access to Obamacare, which opens up the loophole for employers looking to avoid the penalty.
That will teach American voters for soundly rejecting Obama’s party in this month’s elections. As Obama’s fellow left-wing Democrat once said,
Lawbreakers always go straight to the front of the line under a kakistocracy run by the moral dregs of society.
This will matter more than ever as Obama’s global warming decrees make job openings ever more scarce.
