Irresponsible Choices

[Townhall.com]

Thomas Sowell

The latest Gallup poll indicates that 14 percent of the people “moderately disapprove” of Barack Obama’s performance as president and 39 percent “strongly disapprove.”

Since Obama won two presidential elections, chances are that some of those who now “strongly disapprove” of what he has done voted to put him in office. We all make mistakes, but the real question is whether we learn from them.

With many people now acting as if it is time for “a woman” to become president, apparently they have learned absolutely nothing from the disastrous results of the irresponsible self-indulgence of choosing a President of the United States on the basis of demographic characteristics, instead of individual qualifications.

Lawmakers Urge ISIS Action: ‘What is Obama Waiting For?’

[Newsmax.com]

Sunday, 31 Aug 2014 12:57 PM

Frustrated Lawmakers urged President Obama to launch stronger U.S. action against extremists in Iraq and Syria, with both Democrats and Republicans calling for a more aggressive strategy against the group known as Islamic State.

“What is President Obama waiting for?” Rep. Peter King asked said on CBS’ “Face the Nation.”

“We can’t wait forever. And the longer we do wait, the stronger ISIS becomes, more people are massacred and the more America and Britain become at risk.”

Game-Changer: Lois Lerner’s IRS Emails Exist; But Will Obama Admin Look for Them?

[TNN.com]

ZObamaLerner

Not a “smidgen” of corruption, eh?

The Obama Administration is purposefully burying their heads in the sand with regards to Lois Lerner’s emails. According to Justice Department attorneys, the “missing” emails from the computer of Lois Lerner actually exist and are backed up and retrievable, but Justice Department officials are unwilling to retrieve them because doing so is an arduous task.

Obama reportedly plotting end-run around Congress on global climate change deal

[FoxNews.com]

The New York Times reported that the agreement is slated to be signed at a United Nations meeting next year in Paris. However, because the U.S. Senate is unlikely to ratify any international climate treaty, Obama’s negotiators reportedly are working toward an alternative agreement – a “politically binding” deal that would serve in lieu of a bona-fide treaty.

On Monday evening, California Governor Jerry Brown said all Mexicans, including illegal immigrants, are welcome in California.

According to the Los Angeles Times, while introducing Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto, who said America is “the other Mexico,” Brown “spoke about the interwoven histories of Mexico and California.” He “nodded to the immigrants in the room, saying it didn’t matter if they had permission to be in the United States.”

Pentagon Official: White House Foley Leak Endangers Future Operations, American Hostages

Hagel-intel-breach Hagel Announces Rescue Intelligence Breach VIDEO

Joseph Miller is the pen name for a ranking Department of Defense official with a background in U.S. special operations and combat experience in Iraq and Afghanistan. He has worked in strategic planning.

On Wednesday, the White House leaked a classified special forces operation to rescue American hostages in Syria. The reason: political cover. The cost: so far, unknown.

But this much, we know: The politicized leak of this operation cut through the fog of war to let our enemies know exactly what happened that day in the desert, and because of that, future attempts to free American hostages will be more difficult to plan, farther between, and more dangerous to carry out.

Cop Suspended Indefinitely After Threatening To Kill Ferguson Protestor
APD Officer shoots Robert Garcia Sr.

Officer Peter Romero shot 64-year-old Robert Garcia Sr. once in the torso after Garcia pointed what police later learned was a pellet gun at Romero during an early-morning DUI stop, according to police. Robert…

It’s important to remember that, in police shooting cases like the one in Ferguson, Missouri, the initial facts are often wrong. You don’t want to end up looking like Rich Lowry, National Review editor, whose March 23, 2012, column on the Trayvon Martin shooting was titled, “Al Sharpton Is Right.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders (D, Vermont) meets with some of his Jew-hating constituents

[RedState.com]

By: Moe Lane (Diary) | August 20th, 2014 at 06:00 PM

You know, we hear a lot of guff from the American Left about how insular rural areas of Red States can be. But I gotta tell you: speaking as a transplanted Northeasterner, listen to some of those progressives in Vermont and it’s like you’re in a time warp back to 1830 and the Know-Nothing Party.

This is from a recent town hall in Cabot, VT: basically, Sen. Bernie Sanders (Commie*, Vermont) had to stand at a podium and listen to a heck of a lot of angry Vermonter anti-Semites scream about Israel, to the point where he started screaming back about halfway through. Amazingly, from the aforementioned anti-Semites’ right. Heck of a thing when that guy’s the least vile person talking.

As you might guess from that, I have no sympathy for Bernie Sanders, mind you – these are his people, after all; he wants their votes, terrifyingly – but I have even less sympathy for people who scream ‘F*ck Israel,’ and who claim that Hamas is a service organization. And when I say I have no sympathy for either Sanders or his critics, I mean it: it is highly irresponsible for the Senator to pretend that Israel is somehow magically required to ignore their own security needs when it comes to foreign affairs. And If the Palestinians want peace, then they should start by shooting the people using them as human shields.

When ‘Anti-Government’ Violence Erupts, Who Is Really At Fault?

MCT – Protestors retreat from tear gas after marching toward the police command post on West Florissant Avenue on Sunday in Ferguson, Missouri.

This past week, I have been examining a recently leaked document from the Department Of Homeland Security entitled “Domestic Violent Extremists Pose A Threat To Government Officials And Law Enforcement.” (It’s true; the title leaves nothing to the imagination.)

The Consequence of Unaccountability

[Townhall.com]

Katie Pavlich | Aug 18, 2014

lernerEditor’s Note: This column originally appeared in the August issue of Townhall Magazine.

This year’s Supreme Court decisions didn’t turn out well for the Obama ad- ministration. And June in particular was a bad month for President Obama considering that in just one week, he was rebuked four times on issues ranging from organized labor to contraception mandates. But do these rulings really matter if the people working in our federal agencies are never held accountable for lawless behavior?

Obama’s power over the federal government doesn’t end with his “pen and phone” agenda. Most of the real policy decisions are made by bureaucrats inside federal agencies. And Obama has purposefully created an atmosphere where career bureaucrats are both rewarded for helping his administration’s political goals and punished for thwarting them.

Militarized cops on display in Ferguson riots Armored vehicles, camo, rifles: ‘Sounds like something right off the streets of Iraq’

[WND.com]

Published: August 14, 2014 | By Josh Ely

St-Louis-police-tear-gas-riots-600The developing violence in Ferguson, Missouri, where throngs have been rioting for several days over the shooting death by a police officer of an 18-year-old high school graduate, has put on display the country’s increasingly militarized local police force, according to the author of “Police State USA: How Orwell’s Nightmare is Becoming Our Reality.”

Cheryl Chumley has been watching developments in Missouri, where Michael Brown was shot over the weekend, and just overnight two more people were shot, including one by police.

“Armored vehicles on patrol, Kevlar-wearing, camouflage dressed officials carting high-powered rifles, tear gas wafting through the air – sounds like something right off the streets of Iraq. But it’s not. It’s actually the scene that’s playing out in Ferguson right now, with SWAT-type police taking to the residential streets for crowd control duties,” she said.

Own a Mac? Now there’s no excuse for not being up on the U.S. Constitution: It turns out there’s an electronic copy on every Apple computer.

As Steven Sande of the Unofficial Apple Weblog wrote Tuesday: “Perhaps now that more of those in the federal government are using Macs, we might begin to see them paying more attention to this document that outlines the supreme law of the land. Why? Well, there’s a copy of the U.S. Constitution on each and every Mac in the Dictionary app.”

U.S. airstrikes against the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) ordered by President Barack Obama last week will not weaken the group’s overall terrorist capabilities, despite slowing its advance, a senior U.S. military official said.

“We assess that U.S. airstrikes in northern Iraq have slowed ISIL’s operational tempo and temporarily disrupted their advances toward the province of Erbil,” said Army Lt. Gen. William Mayville, Joint Chiefs of Staff director of operations, according to The Hill.

The New York Times’s Amnesty Lies

[Townhall.com]

Conn Carroll | Aug 11, 2014

Conn Carroll

Some pundits, like Vox’s Ezra Klein, believe that if Congress refuses to vote an any issue a president deems important, then the president is then empowered to make new law on that issue.

New-York-Times_building-grey-ladyThis is, of course, completely false. But The New York Times embraced that position Sunday with an editorial calling on President Obama to grant temporary amnesty to up to 5 million illegal immigrants currently in the United States today. Below is a paragraph-by-paragraph response to the Times’s editorial:

We don’t know the details. Mr. Obama and the Department of Homeland Security have not yet supplied the who, what, when or even, officially, whether. But Mr. Obama has promised to respond to Congress’s refusal to act on immigration reform. And the most obvious thing is to lift the threat of deportation from immigrants who should be the lowest priority for removal: those with citizen children, jobs, clean records and strong community ties. Some reports put the size of that group at four million to five million.

First of all, as noted above, the fact that Congress has not acted on an issue does not provide any justification for a president to act on his own.
