Uhhhhh…..

Thought it would be quite timely to play of Rush Limbaugh’s spot on analysis of the legacy of lies which defines the Obama administration.

This president perpetuates a situation where lie after lie after lie has become the hallmark of his presidency. Yet there’s no concern, no genuine consideration…nothing! Nothing but the feigned attention and arrogance that IS Barack Obama….

The LONG and Winding Road…

******************************************

As the world finds itself on edge once again with the explosive situation between Russia and the Ukraine, the United States is an uncomfortable position resulting from a weak, directionless foreign policy. That seems to be the consensus…even among those who have championed the leadership lacking Obama administration over the years.

I found myself frustratingly adding this latest fiasco to the laundry list of failures and pointlessness of the Obama White House. Once again, our nation edges closer to embarrassment with the foolhardy assessments of a man who governs..and I use that term loosely…the way he THINKS the world should be, as opposed to the reality which clear thinking individuals acknowledge.

Barack Obama seems to have championed failure and incompetence throughout his first term and that mindset continues into the second. At home and abroad, we’ve seen a naive approach and response to our national problems at home and our international interests abroad…

Let’s take a look..in the case you’ve forgotten…shall we?…

jobs-report-fail-obama

The Obama administration has been completely and utterly ineffective in advancing an agenda which promotes economic growth. And manipulating job numbers is NOT the answer….

Any effort at “stimulating” the economy has failed miserably..not to mention the fact a waste of money..literally…

I think this one is pretty much self explanatory….

President Obama Speaks On The Death Of US Ambassador In Libya Christopher Stevens

Despite feigning ignorance, incompetence ruled the day under in the Department of State under Hillary Clinton. Benghazi is, and will remain, a perfect example of that. Mrs. Clinton’s famous “what difference does it make..?” response to those questioning the administration’s preparedness and its ability to protect our interests is classic when it comes to demonstrating how truly cavalier and condescending their attitude was…..and continues to be!

obama-sequester-lies

President Obama successfully demonized the Republican opposition in the sequester fiasco, despite the situation escalating due to HIS administration’s efforts…it was nothing more than an attempt at political capital…

jay-carney-irs-scandal

The administration continued the tactic of simply pretending to be unaware of what was happening in its ranks throughout the NSA and IRS selective targeting scandals…

obamainchargeofeverythingresponsiblefornothig

This spotlight photo of shameless Attorney General Eric Holder sums up the Barack Obama legacy in three words..”responsible for nothing”….

The voters of the United States have awarded the highest honor to a man based on nothing more than his skin color. We placed our future in the hands of a man who has shown nothing but callous and blatant disregard for the national well being of the United States. A country made up of individuals easily swayed by the musings and whims of an elitist element that purports to be looking out for our interests..that’s what we’ve become. It’s sad and demeaning to a nation built on promise and effort. Unfortunately those two attributes have all but disappeared under Barack Obama….

Trending Potpourri!

 

 

seasonal-affective-disorder

Well, our return from the “holidaze” sees the nation freaking out over the extreme cold. Of course, media hype accounts for about 70% of that.

It strikes me as frustrating that while so many embrace “the inconvenient truth” when it comes to our natural existence, the REAL INCONVENIENT TRUTH of the dangers imposed upon us by government and elected officials is met with indifference. Debt, spending, national security, spying, the abusive IRS, Benghazi….they’re all still relevant. We just can’t muster the energy required for the outrage.

Barack Obama has finally returned from his extended Hawaii vacation. Obamcare is STILL a mess, extending unemployment benefits takes precedence over actually trying to create an economy where that isn’t necessary, and “income inequality” set the stage of distraction.

A current piece in The Atlantic on pollster Frank Luntz focuses on his frustration with his failure to convince more Americans that we need to save the country from our elected officials. I know EXACTLY how he feels! It boggles the mind that more of us are not clued in to how bad things are. I guess there are not enough of us with that luxury. And if you don’t think Washington politicians aren’t aware of that…well, you just proved my point.

Too many of us would rather focus on the opinions of a swamp rat when it comes to gays. Entertainment Weekly’s Jess Cagle ( @JessCagleEW ) laments that “you (Phil Robertson) managed to get your intense disdain for gay people and patronizing views on African-Americans disseminated all over the place..” I was quick to correct Mr. Cagle that it was his fellow media figures who saw to it Robertson’s views were heralded across an easily distracted nation.

I don’t know. This stuff just goes on and on and on. Anything is fair game when it comes to separating Americans from what is vital to their day to day lives. What do you think?…Are we destined to continue this trend toward our inevitable demise?..

2016 is two years away. We have another presidential campaign and election to endure. I’m hoping..just hoping, mind you…enough of us will have reached a point to where we decide it’s time to come to our collective senses and elect a president who will offer the nation respect, dignity, and hope. Not a personality masquerading as president. We shall see…we shall see…

 

Friday Follies!…

 

Our world continues in its upside down state!….You can’t make this stuff up! Absurdity is the order of the day in Washington and around the country!…

 

"So what should I do next Vlad?...I think the Syria fiasco went over well, don't you?..I mean the press loves it!.."

Royal Abuse

 

 

Obama-the-King

 

It’s been noted over the years of his reign, that King Barack simply decides to rule by decree. Ignoring what he doesn’t like and enforcing what he does. The ‘rule of law be damned’. There was his fiasco on oil exploration, permits, etc., following the Gulf oil well disaster. His so called ‘welfare reform’, an effort to relax the requirements for applicants, and now the delaying of the employer mandate in ‘Obamacare’. HIS signature piece of legislation. The irony here being he had little to do with crafting the law. However, he undoubtedly approved of the final mess of a bill.

Michael McConnell, writing at The Wall Street Journal, takes a look at the latest tangled web the administration finds itself in…

OBAMA SUSPENDS THE LAW

Like King James II, the President decides not to enforce laws he doesn’t like. That’s an abuse of power.

President Obama’s decision last week to suspend the employer mandate of the Affordable Care Act may be welcome relief to businesses affected by this provision, but it raises grave concerns about his understanding of the role of the executive in our system of government.

Article II, Section 3, of the Constitution states that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed.” This is a duty, not a discretionary power. While the president does have substantial discretion about how to enforce a law, he has no discretion about whether to do so.

This matter—the limits of executive power—has deep historical roots. During the period of royal absolutism, English monarchs asserted a right to dispense with parliamentary statutes they disliked. King James II’s use of the prerogative was a key grievance that lead to the Glorious Revolution of 1688. The very first provision of the English Bill of Rights of 1689—the most important precursor to the U.S. Constitution—declared that “the pretended power of suspending of laws, or the execution of laws, by regal authority, without consent of parliament, is illegal.”

To make sure that American presidents could not resurrect a similar prerogative, the Framers of the Constitution made the faithful enforcement of the law a constitutional duty.

The Justice Department’s Office of Legal Counsel, which advises the president on legal and constitutional issues, has repeatedly opined that the president may decline to enforce laws he believes are unconstitutional. But these opinions have always insisted that the president has no authority, as one such memo put it in 1990, to “refuse to enforce a statute he opposes for policy reasons.”

Attorneys general under Presidents Carter, Reagan, both Bushes and Clinton all agreed on this point. With the exception of Richard Nixon, whose refusals to spend money appropriated by Congress were struck down by the courts, no prior president has claimed the power to negate a law that is concededly constitutional.

In 1998, the Supreme Court struck down a congressional grant of line-item veto authority to the president to cancel spending items in appropriations. The reason? The only constitutional power the president has to suspend or repeal statutes is to veto a bill or propose new legislation. Writing for the court in Clinton v. City of New York, JusticeJohn Paul Stevens noted: “There is no provision in the Constitution that authorizes the president to enact, to amend, or to repeal statutes.”

The employer mandate in the Affordable Care Act contains no provision allowing the president to suspend, delay or repeal it. Section 1513(d) states in no uncertain terms that “The amendments made by this section shall apply to months beginning after December 31, 2013.” Imagine the outcry if Mitt Romney had been elected president and simply refused to enforce the whole of ObamaCare.

This is not the first time Mr. Obama has suspended the operation of statutes by executive decree, but it is the most barefaced. In June of last year, for example, the administration stopped initiating deportation proceedings against some 800,000 illegal immigrants who came to the U.S. before age 16, lived here at least five years, and met a variety of other criteria. This was after Congress refused to enact the Dream Act, which would have allowed these individuals to stay in accordance with these conditions. Earlier in 2012, the president effectively replaced congressional requirements governing state compliance under the No Child Left Behind Act with new ones crafted by his administration.

The president defended his suspension of the immigration laws as an exercise of prosecutorial discretion. He defended his amending of No Child Left Behind as an exercise of authority in the statute to waive certain requirements. The administration has yet to offer a legal justification for last week’s suspension of the employer mandate.

Republican opponents of ObamaCare might say that the suspension of the employer mandate is such good policy that there’s no need to worry about constitutionality. But if the president can dispense with laws, and parts of laws, when he disagrees with them, the implications for constitutional government are dire.

Democrats too may acquiesce in Mr. Obama’s action, as they have his other aggressive assertions of executive power. Yet what will they say when a Republican president decides that the tax rate on capital gains is a drag on economic growth and instructs the IRS not to enforce it?

And what of immigration reform? Why bother debating the details of a compromise if future presidents will feel free to disregard those parts of the statute that they don’t like?

The courts cannot be counted on to intervene in cases like this. As the Supreme Court recently held in Hollingsworth v. Perry, the same-sex marriage case involving California’s Proposition 8, private citizens do not have standing in court to challenge the executive’s refusal to enforce laws, unless they have a personal stake in the matter. If a president declines to enforce tax laws, immigration laws, or restrictions on spending—to name a few plausible examples—it is very likely that no one will have standing to sue.

Of all the stretches of executive power Americans have seen in the past few years, the president’s unilateral suspension of statutes may have the most disturbing long-term effects. As the Supreme Court said long ago (Kendall v. United States, 1838), allowing the president to refuse to enforce statutes passed by Congress “would be clothing the president with a power to control the legislation of congress, and paralyze the administration of justice.”

Mr. McConnell, a former judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit, is a professor of law and director of the Constitutional Law Center at Stanford Law School and a senior fellow at the Hoover Institution.

A version of this article appeared July 9, 2013, on page A13 in the U.S. edition of The Wall Street Journal, with the headline: Obama Suspends the Law.

“I just want to thank the American people..and, of course the media…for their continued ignorance and cluelessness…I know I can always count on them to ignore the serious problems we face as a nation while they focus on the ‘distraction of the week’….I mean, how else do you think I can manage to stay in office and get away with what I have?..”

So the mess continues. Nothing actually improves while they tell you it is.

WHEN BARACK OBAMA MET VLADIMIR PUTIN

 

 

I could go on…but, I think you get the point….

The federal government has a long tradition of ignoring the REAL problems Americans face in their day to day lives. And though I applaud yesterday’s Supreme Court decisions, they will have little, if any impact, on the lives of most. Gay or straight.

We have a nation struggling with debt, unemployment, rising costs in nearly every sector, along with countless other valid, significant problems. And as long as President Obama and the Democrats can distract you with gay marriage, immigration, women’s reproduction, etc., etc., etc….you name it…then these troubles can be ignored. But the time will come when all of this comes tumbling down and we will be left to pick up the pieces…if we can.

Think about it!…
