We know that the Obama administration’s operation Fast & Furious resulted in over 2,000 assault weapons being given to Mexican criminals, including drug cartels, and we know that a U.S. border agent was killed with one of those weapons.

But thanks to a specious claim of executive privilege by the Obama administration and endless stonewalling by the Justice department, the full truth is not yet known about the terrible decisions the Obama regime made during this American tragedy.

The latest news is that Obama and Holder are playing for more delays:

Attorney General Eric Holder is again asking a federal court to delay the transfer of disputed documents relating to Operation Fast and Furious to a House committee. <Politico, link>

And what time line is Obama’s goal?

Isn’t it obvious?

If that process does not begin until Jackson rules definitively on the the executive privilege claim President Barack Obama has made for many of the documents, the timeline for the case being resolved could begin to approach the end of the Obama administration.

Ah yes, the “end of the Obama administration”.

Perhaps they fear that the “end” might come sooner than scheduled if the truth about Fast & Furious came to light sooner.

Or the truth about IRS abuse of political opponents.

Or the truth about Benghazi.

The monstrosity known as Obamacare just took a huge hit in Minnesota, and it has nothing to do with federal court cases against Obamacare — it has to do with a private insurer bailing out.

The “Blue Ox” of Minnesota Obamacare is calling it quits.

PreferredOne, the insurer that sold nearly 60 percent of all private health plans on Minnesota’s Obamacare exchange, on Tuesday said it would leave that marketplace. PreferredOne’s plans were the lowest-cost options on that exchange, known as MNSure.

PreferredOne cited the costs of doing business on MNSure as the reason for its surprising decision, saying that selling plans is “not administratively and financially sustainable going forward,” according to KSTP.com, the website of that Minnesota TV News network. <Yahoo Finance, link>

Have you ever witnessed a slow-motion train wreck, that took years to play itself out, with mangled bodies along the way and utter horror for all involved, including you, the “bystander”, who is forced by government to board the train so you can join the crash?

Sure you have, and you’re witnessing it RIGHT NOW.

Obama the failed leader

Barack Obama’s failures to lead our nation or any alliance are beyond counting at the point.

He is the king of going it alone, whether on the international stage or in Washington DC, where a system of three branches of government are two-too-many for him.

The latest pathetic (unfunny) joke of this presidency is Obama’s rhetoric around a “broad coalition” that he has allegedly assembled to fight the Islamic State.

In his speech about ISIS last week, President Barack Obama said, “American military power is unmatched, but this can’t be America’s fight alone.”  Allies and partners of the United States, Obama vowed, would provide support… <CNN, link>

Is that right, Barry? So where is the “broad coalition” that you promised?

On Sunday, Kerry said countries in the Middle East are will to help with strikes against ISIS, but he said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” that “it’s not appropriate to start announcing” which nations will participate and what each will do.

Ummm, maybe you are lying, again, mr. Obama?

At this point even Liberals are not surprised by Obama’s latest lack of substance, such is the bankruptcy inherent in every single word that spills forth from mr. Obama’s mouth.

Pelosi called out

You have to laugh when an “MTV reality star” (whatever that is) calls out Nancy Pelosi <link>.

Chet tweet

A “special breed of idiot”…

Strong words from Mr. Cannon.

But Pelosi’s utterances are nearly always deserving of laughs and ridicule.

Remember this quote?

…but we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what’s in it…

She was referring of course to the Affordable (LMAO!) Care Act.

What do you get when you take an arrogant man who embraces our enemies more than the country he serves and prefers playing golf while the world burns, and put him in the White House?

You get global chaos, violence, terrorism, beheadings of innocents by evil men, and the accelerating decline and destruction of the United States.

The New York Times has published a nice summary of Barack Obama’s series of destructive statements and policies in regard to the Middle East. Reading through it is a good reality check if you haven’t quite accepted how horrible this president is.

Here are some highlights, with emphasis added <New York Times, link>:

As he seeks to rally Americans behind a new military campaign in the Middle East, Mr. Obama finds his own past statements coming back to haunt him. Time and again, he has expressed assessments of the world that in the harsh glare of hindsight look out of kilter with the changed reality he now confronts.

A note to the Times: mr. Obama’s assessments look out of kilter BEFORE we have the benefit of hindsight, which is to say that for those of us who see the man for who he really is, we understand that his statements and policies are bankrupt and destructive as he says and does them. But it’s nice that the Times at least sees it eventually.

The comment that has caused Mr. Obama the most grief in recent days was his judgment about groups like ISIS. In an interview last winter with David Remnick of The New Yorker, Mr. Obama sought to make the point that not every terrorist group is a threat like Al Qaeda, requiring extraordinary American action.

“The analogy we use around here sometimes, and I think is accurate, is if a JV team puts on Lakers uniforms, that doesn’t make them Kobe Bryant,” Mr. Obama told Mr. Remnick. He drew a distinction between Al Qaeda and “jihadists who are engaged in various local power struggles and disputes, often sectarian.”

So casual he is, isn’t he? He really cares about us Americans — you can tell, can’t you?

Obama’s words just came back to him courtesy of an interview last weekend, and mr. Obama offered up his usual rhetorical smokescreen, something he is very good at:

Asked about that by Chuck Todd on “Meet the Press” last weekend, Mr. Obama denied that he necessarily meant ISIS. “Keep in mind I wasn’t specifically referring to ISIL,” he said, using an alternate acronym for the group.

But the Times is not buying it, and offers us this beautiful bit of truth:

But the transcript of the New Yorker interview showed that Mr. Obama made his JV team comment directly after being asked about terrorists in Iraq, Syria and Africa, which would include ISIS. After Mr. Obama’s initial answer, Mr. Remnick pointed out that “that JV team just took over Fallujah,” a city in western Iraq seized by ISIS.

Caught again in his lies.

And how about this nail in the coffin on the fact that he is lying about his past statements:

Journalistic organizations like PolitiFact, Factcheck.org and The Washington Post’s Fact Checker all rejected the contention that Mr. Obama was not referring to ISIS when he made his comment about JV teams.

Ouch.

Perhaps he should admit the real reason why he says these idiotic and misguided things?

We all know he’s a smart man, right?

And now a quick barrage of Barack Obama’s own words, in which he helps create a world of chaos and death:

…[we are] leaving behind a sovereign, stable and self-reliant Iraq with a representative government.

…the tide of war is receding.

We are living through a turning point in our nation and the world, one that will echo through eternity, and be of the nightmare variety that so often owns the human soul.

 

 

Obama Obstruction of Justice

We all know that Liberals hide behind “All presidents do that” when a Democrat breaks the law or otherwise violates his oath of office in very grave ways.

We also know that not all presidents commit perjury while testifying in Federal court (Clinton), for example, and that this excuse insults all who utter it.

Luckily there are those moments when a crime is so obvious that Liberals cannot so easily gloss over it.

The IRS filing in federal Judge Emmet Sullivan’s court reveals shocking new information. The IRS destroyed Lerner’s Blackberry AFTER it knew her computer had crashed and after a Congressional inquiry was well underway. As an IRS official declared under the penalty of perjury, the destroyed Blackberry would have contained the same emails (both sent and received) as Lois Lerner’s hard drive. <New York Observer, link>

This is clearly obstruction of justice, a criminal offense, and one that should be prosecuted.

 

An interview with Cornell West was published today in Salon.com, and it is a barn-burner of rhetorical demolition of Barack Hussein Obama and his fraudulent presidency.

It is called “Cornel West: “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency”” <link>.

Cornel West

I am going to excerpt it across several posts, because some of the quotes are so juicy they deserve their own billboards.

Here is just one excerpt to start things off:

The interviewer, Thomas Frank, makes this statement: 

The rule of law, oh my God. There’s one law for us and another law if you work on Wall Street.

To which West responds:

That’s exactly right. Even with [Attorney General] Eric Holder. Eric Holder won’t touch the Wall Street executives; they’re his friends. He might charge them some money. They want to celebrate. This money is just a tax write-off for these people. There’s no accountability. No answerability. No responsibility that these people have to take at all. The same is true with the Robert Rubin crowd. Obama comes in, he’s got all this populist rhetoric which is wonderful, progressive populist rhetoric which we needed badly. What does he do, goes straight to the Robert Rubin crowd and here comes Larry Summers, here comes Tim Geithner, we can go on and on and on, and he allows them to run things. You see it in the Suskind book, The Confidence Men. These guys are running things, and these are neoliberal, deregulating free marketeers—and poverty is not even an afterthought for them.

KABOOM.

This is what we’ve been saying since 2009: Barack Obama not only failed to go after Wall Street crooks, but he used tax payer money to keep their bonuses flowing in every single year after the global financial crash of 2008. Not only that, he used the financial crash as cover to ruthlessly centralize American health care in a way that has already destroyed our beautiful system and promises to impoverish the middle class and enslave all of us to a politburo of 15 men appointed by the president.

Mr. West and other Liberals now feel as though they “got played” by Obama, and to this I can only say: we told you so.
