FEMA: One More Obama Scandal for the Media to Obscure

Accuracy in Media

Why is it that the media almost always want to distance President Obama from the various scandals occurring during his presidency? It is as if he has nothing to do with the people he has appointed to run the various federal agencies, and no responsibility for their incompetence or corruption. Here is but the latest example:

The Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) is reviewing insurance claims for 144,000 New York and New Jersey victims of Superstorm Sandy. The storm, which was actually Hurricane Sandy, hit the U.S. coast near Atlantic City, New Jersey, on October 29, 2012. This FEMA review was prompted by lawsuits, an ongoing criminal inquiry, and news reporting that exposed the systematic, corrupt low-balling of homeowners by insurance companies working with FEMA. “They [FEMA] probably orchestrated the whole thing,” one victim, Doug Quinn, told CBS News. “A Sandy task force is being formed to evaluate the nation’s flood insurance program,” it reports.

The media would likely have treated this as a front-page scandal under George W. Bush’s leadership.

Socialism is not the Answer

From Day 1, the Community Organizer in Chief has walked over the US Constitution and continues to do so today and Congress doesn’t do Jack to stop him. So, here’s a scary thought…….what if the Usurper himself comes out and says he is going to be President for Life? Would Congress, could Congress do anything then? The Dictator in Chief would have had plenty of time too get all the right people in all the right places and then some.

Hey, it’s just a thought.

Obama Unveils National ObamaLaw Plan

Daily Caller

resident Barack Obama  introduced his plan for a progressive takeover of state and local policing.

“We have a great opportunity… to really transform how we think about community law enforcement relations,” he said Monday.

“We need to seize that opportunity… this is something that I’m going to stay very focused on in the months to come,” Obama said, as he touted a new interim report from his Task Force on 21st Century Policing.

Obama also instructed his media allies to help federalize policing, and to sideline the critics of centralized policing rules. “I expect our friends in the media to really focus on what’s in this report and pay attention to it,” he instructed.

Obama is using the crisis sparked by the August 2014 shooting of Michael Brown, who was killed after assaulting a shopkeeper and a policeman in Ferguson, Mo. Obama and his deputies stoked the subsequent controversy in the run-up to the 2014 election, in the hope of boosting African-American turnout. The mobilization effort failed, partly because local law-enforcement officials released a video showing Brown’s strong-arm robbery of a store shortly before the fatal shooting.

Now Obama is trying to expand progressive control by attaching more conditions to federal funding of state and local law-enforcement efforts. “We can expand the [federally-funded] COPS program… to see if we can get more incentives for local communities to apply some of the best practices and lessons that are embodied in this report,” he said.

Obama: Submission Accomplished

Flopping Aces

Dhimmitude is the surrendering to and appeasing of Muslims. It is now the official foreign policy of Barack Obama. Obama is unable to use the terms Islamic and terrorism or extremism in the same sentence. It’s frustrating both the right and the left.

“The idea that you’re tying outreach to terrorist activity is both offensive to the community and specious from a counterterrorism research perspective,” said Mike German of the Brennan Center for Justice at New York University School of Law.

Obama had no problem calling Americans “enemies” of the state. He had no problem labeling returning American vets as “terrorist threats.” He called the right “domestic terrorists.”

Obama didn’t hesitate to bring up the Crusades, albeit wrongly. In so doing, Obama mindlessly argued that Islam was a religion eight hundred years behind civilization. Obama asserted that slavery and segregation were Christian traditions and even managed to offend India.

Barack Obama Lies, Says Islam is Part of America’s Founding

resident Barack Hussein Obama said that Islam is one of America’s founding religions, one that has been “woven into the fabric of our country since its founding.” This is an outrageous lie. Islam had no part at all in the founding of our nation. In fact, some of the founders spoke out against Islam and it was one of our country’s earliest military enemies.

Obama’s outright lie was uttered this week in a White House conference on “countering violent extremism.”

Here is what the liar in chief said on Wednesday…

“I also know that Islam has always been a part of America’s story,” Obama said in a June 2009 speech in Cairo, Egypt. “Islam has always been part of America,” he said in a 2010 statement marking the start of Ramadan. And in a 2014 statement marking Eid, Obama said the holiday “also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.”

This is outrageous. The founders were against Islam, not in favor of it. And not one tenet of the murderous “religion of peace” has found its way into American law or tradition.

Not only that, but one of our earliest experiences at war was against Muslims who were murdering people near the Barbary Coast.

It is true, of course, that the founders did intend that Americans could practice Islam if they wanted to. There was no thought that it would be outlawed. In fact, some even wrote that Muslims should be allowed to attain political office. After all, we did start the country on the ideal of religious freedom. But no founder felt that Islam was something that should be emulated. None felt that Islam had ideas that should be incorporated in the USA. And Islam played no part in our founding. Those who say it did are bending over backwards—and illegitimately so—to try and shoehorn Islam into our founding.

As to the founders, John Adams, his son John Quincy (both of whom became presidents) and Ben Franklin all criticized Islam as a doctrine of war, not a religion.

In fact, the father of American jurisprudence, Justice Joseph Story, throughly slammed Islam.

Mahomet aimed to establish his pretensions to divine authority, by the power of the sword and the terrors of his government; while he carefully avoided any attempts at miracles in the presence of his followers, and all pretences to foretell things to come. His acknowledging the divine mission of Moses and Christ confirms their authority as far as his influence will go while their doctrines entirely destroy all his pretensions to the like authority…. And now, where is the comparison between the supposed prophet of Mecca, and the Son of God; or with what propriety ought they to be named together?…The difference between these characters is so great, that the facts need not be further applied

Since our Muslim-loving president attained office, some have become fond of claiming that Thomas Jefferson was the first to celebrate a Muslim holiday in the White House. This is also a lie.

President Obama himself has advanced the lie that Thomas Jefferson celebrated the Muslim holiday of the Iftar diner. This characterization of what Jefferson did in 1801 is actually a mischaracterization of what he actually did. Jefferson did not host any Iftar dinner.

So, no, Barack, the USA is not “woven” with Islam. Islam is an enemy to the founding and runs counter to our American ideals.

Like Obamacare? You Will Love ObamaNet

Family Security Matters

In his relentless drive to leave no aspect of American life unmolested, Obama’s next stop is cyberspace. Having “reformed” U.S. medicine, Obama now aims to “repair” the World Wide Web. If you like Obamacare, you will love ObamaNet.

On February 26, the Federal Communications Commission will vote on a “net neutrality” proposal to regulate broadband networks as if they were telephone monopolies from the days when copper wire was high tech. ObamaNet would let Uncle Sam intervene in the price, product-innovation, and capacity decisions of Internet Service Providers (ISPs).

Net neutrality? Let’s call it net brutality.

An Unprecedented Constitutional Crisis

Free Republic

Using fraudulent budget math which landed Bernie Madoff in prison with a 150-year sentence, Obama deliberately lied to the American people about the cost of insurance [under Obamacare], their ability to keep the policies they liked, and the fact that middle income Americans were being bled dry in order to fund other people’s medical care.

When his politicized Internal Revenue Service was caught trying to destroy his political opposition, Obama stonewalled and used the “dog ate my homework” excuse. Thus, he argued, an Executive Branch which could suck up meta-data on every phone call in the world somehow couldn’t locate e-mails that, not coincidentally, would have incriminated it.

If Congress refused to pass his immigration legislation, he would enact it by executive fiat. If Congress frustrated his efforts to exploit a horrific tragedy in order to pass gun control, he would craft 23 “executive actions” to achieve the same thing. If the law barred him from demanding sales information from gun dealers or creating a national gun registry, he would do it anyway.

After all, wasn’t it Richard Nixon who said to David Frost: “If the President does it, that means it’s not illegal.” And nothing happened to him, right?

Perhaps, as Richard Nixon found out, the Constitution is a little more resilient than Obama imagines.

Tim Macy is the Chairman of Gun Owners of America, a gun lobby that represents more than one million members and activists.
