Obama Encounters an Apex of Anger – Tea Party Nation

Obama Encounters an Apex of Anger – Tea Party Nation.

By Alan Caruba

 

1458476_652003068155816_1544440685_nBarack Obama has managed to do something one would hardly imagine a President could achieve by the midpoint of his second term. He has managed to anger most segments of the American populace, including those to the far Left who constitute a significant part of his base.  It has taken time for most people to reach this point.

 

Americans are amazingly patient with their presidents, but Obama has pushed them beyond scandal fatigue. The “final straw” appears to be the illegal alien invasion masterminded by Obama.

 

What they are seeing and hearing is not what they were sold; a charming man of allegedly extraordinary intelligence. Friday’s press conference regarding the shoot down of the Malaysian commercial aircraft showed us a man utterly lacking any moral outrage and, as always, “leading from behind” by insisting this was Europe’s problem, not one that would be addressed by an America doing anything more than applying a few economic sanctions.

 

He looked and sounded bored, annoyed that he had to utter a bunch of empty platitudes about Russia; the same Russia with which he and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton had declared a “reset” from previous administrations’ relations. Putin took his measure and saw weakness.obama_crossing_fingers_10-31-13-2

 

Obama’s response to the Middle East was to pull out all our troops from Iraq and a muddled series of actions in Afghanistan topped by the announcement of when troops there would leave, always a very bad idea when the enemy is still in the field. The “Arab Spring” became another Obama nightmare of bad decisions.

 

Lies, Lies, and More Lies

 

Not finishedIt took years, but it eventually became clear to most paying any attention that Obama has told so many lies that whatever he says now is deemed worthless. Then, too, his administration is now subject to congressional investigations that include the Internal Revenue Service and the Veterans Administration.

 

The Attorney General was slapped with contempt of Congress. A key figure in the IRS scandal, Lois Lerner, has pled the Fifth.

 

Obama-constitution burningThe House of Representatives is getting ready to sue Obama for failing to obey the Constitution’s separation of powers. The President’s efforts to ignore the Constitution have been met with an extraordinary number of Supreme Court rebuffs, many of which were unanimous.

 

How bad is Obama’s situation at present? One indication is the way the news media has been slowly, but steadily falling out of love with him. As Paul Bedard noted recently in the Washington Examiner, “In unprecedented criticism of the White House 38 journalism groups have assailed the president’s team for censoring media coverage, limiting access to top officials, and overall ‘politically-driven suppression of the news.”

 

David Cuiller, president of the Society of Professional Journalists, said, “It is up to journalists—and citizens—to push back against this force. Hard!” As a member of the SPJ since the 1970s this is a welcome expression of indignation, but it is also been occurring across a full spectrum of Republicans, Democrats, and independent voters as various Obama policies have negatively affected them.

 

No President has ever much liked the news media. This one, though, took them from adoration to distrust. With the exception of the network news shows and steadfast liberal newspapers, Obama’s news coverage is going to become increasingly harsh. Or should we say “accurate”?

 

ObamaDishonestyandIncompetanceThe illegal alien immigration issue has enraged average Americans and Obama is not helped when Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid claims that “the borders are secure” or House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi makes some equally absurd and moronic claim.

 

In the six years since Obama took office in 2009, Americans have encountered a succession of scandals that began with Operation Fast and Furious when a scheme to transfer arms to Mexican cartels was covered up by the assertion of executive privilege. The Obamacare lies were followed by administration efforts to force corporations and religious organizations to forego their faith-based beliefs. Millions of Americans lost their healthcare insurance plans, only to have them replaced for far more expensive ones.

 

ImageOn top of the problems Americans encountered with the implementation of Obamacare, along came revelations that the Department of Veterans Affairs was letting some veterans seeking healthcare die by falsifying treatment records.

 

While this was occurring the nation’s debt rose to a historic high of $17 trillion, causing its credit rating to be reduced for the first time. There has been no budget during his first and second terms. There are still more than 90 million Americans out of work and the prices of food and gasoline are rising.

 

BenghaziGate1-300x300 Obama administration LiedFollowing the Benghazi attack, the scandal was the lies told by Obama and Hillary Clinton, then the Secretary of State, describing it as a random attack despite the fact it occurred on the anniversary of 9/11. When the administration released five high ranking Taliban leaders at the same time we continue to be engaged in a war against them in Afghanistan, the public really began to take notice. It angered veterans and others.

 

No one in Congress believes a word Obama says and the House of Representatives is getting ready to sue him for his failure to enforce the laws Congress has passed and his usurpation of unconstitutional power to alter laws whenever he wants. This is unprecedented in the history of the nation.

 

obama- defending constitution laughingAnd the scandals noted are only a small number of the actions Obama and his administration have taken that have finally combined to create a body of evidence that he has been acting against the interest and welfare of Americans he took an oath to protect. How does he expect to do that as he reduces the nation’s military strength to pre-WWII levels?

 

Obama’s response to the growing level of anger has been to concentrate on fund raising for the Democratic Party, but even those benefitting from it do not want to be seen with him.

 obamacaredisaster

In August he will take a long vacation in the ultra-rich environs of Martha’s Vineyard while thousands of illegal aliens continue to stream in and his only “solution” is to ask Congress for billions to care for them. And to blame Congress—Republicans—for failing to pass an immigration bill that amounts to an amnesty no one wants.

 

The anger that has been building is likely to be expressed on November 4 when Americans go to the polls to clean house and, by that, I mean ridding Congress of as many Democrats as possible and replacing them with openly avowed conservatives. That’s just over a hundred days from now.

 

BaNY2QmIEAAruSQ.jpg largeThe cliché is that “the fish stinks from the head” and it is clear now that the Obama administration reflects the corruption and incompetence of Barack Obama, a Chicago politician who leapt to power despite not even having served a full term as a U.S. Senator. He was elected to be the first black President of the United States and it is no small irony that even African-Americans know he has done little or nothing to address their needs and concerns.

 

He will not be impeached as he should be, but he will increasingly lack any power other than executive orders. The constitutional system will work, but it will take decades to repair the damage.Image

MS-13 Actively Recruiting Illegal Alien Minors at U.S. Shelters

Originally posted on Socialism is not the Answer:

Judicial Watch

The nation’s most violent street gangs—including Mara Salvatrucha—are actively recruiting new members at U.S. shelters housing illegal immigrant minors and they’re using Red Cross phones to communicate, a Homeland Security source tells Judicial Watch.

JW has reported extensively on the crisis created by the sudden influx of mostly Central American minors that have crossed into the U.S. through the Mexican border in recent weeks. It has created havoc and will end up costing American taxpayers billions of dollars to house, process, medically treat, feed and inevitably educate the Unaccompanied Alien Children (UAC) which are being dispersed throughout the country. They are bringing in dangerous diseases—including swine flu, dengue fever, Ebola virus and tuberculosis— and occupying our military bases as shelters.

Mexico cut deal to send more illegals to the United States

Originally posted on BUNKERVILLE | God, Guns and Guts Comrades!:

Obama’s plan is working out swell. Invasion continues with a nod from our government. Instead of telling these countries to go to hell and that they will not get another nickel, we have this. The good news? Now Mexico will assist in the safe passage of the illiterates into our country. Illiterates even in their own language. Holder will sue any State that doesn’t provide education. So we will have millions of these kids requiring thousands of bilingual teachers, thousands of new schools which we will pay for with our real estate taxes. What could be better for a Friday dump? Oh, I am sure there is more to come. After all, it’s Friday.

It’s Laughable How Much Cheaper It Would Be to Send Illegals Back Than Approve Obama’s $3.8 Billion

Originally posted on A Moral Outrage:

IJReview

Former Congressman Ernest Istook (R-Oklahoma) has a plan to deal with tens of thousands of illegal immigrants who have arrived on the southern border in recent weeks: Fly them home.

More importantly, he said this can be achieved for 99.5% less than the $3.8 billion that President Barack Obama is asking for to house 30,000 illegal aliens for a year.

From his column in The Washington Times:

At the unofficial reported cost of $250 per person per day, President Barack Obama is proposing we spend $1.8 billion “to provide appropriate care for unaccompanied children.” That works out to 19,726 minors for a year. 

The $250 a day figure compares with the $667 one-way cost of an airline ticket from McAllen, Texas, to Guatemala City, Guatemala, according to both Orbitz and Priceline. The combined airfare for 29,358 passengers would be $19.6 million. That is one-half of 1 percent of President

Obama to deport illegal alien children … well … No!

Originally posted on Cry and Howl:

One of the funniest things (“funny” as in perplexing or peculiar) about liberals is all they have to see is a catchy phrase or name attached to something “Obama” and it’s a  done deal. Like the “Affordable Care Act” … makes Obamacare “affordable” regardless of the facts.

It’s clear to adults that Barack Obama has no intentions of deporting these tens of thousands of illegals flooding the U.S. Even though Obama claims he needs $4 billion to expedite said deportations, it ain’t gonna happen. But some time back someone had labeled Barack as the “Deporter-in-Chief” … voila! He’s going to expedite those dastardly illegal children whom the DHS provided transportation to America for via the vendor services solicited back in January.  Oh, the “deporter-in-chief” label came fromNational Council of La Raza, and these folks are buddies with the Obamas.

Now those childish liberals will use that little title to support the…

The Switch-Hitting Liberals

Originally posted on Cry and Howl:

Gawd, liberals astound me at how they fight each other just to be the first to sniff a chair where Barack Obama sat on. Forgive my graphic description but it’s true. Liberals who read my previous piece, Obama to deport illegal alien children … well … No! are already making excuses as to why Obama won’t deport the illegals … when at first conservatives “have it all wrong, he will undoubtedly expedite those deportations” … But now they say, “Well, if Obama doesn’t do it, he’ll have a good reason for it. Most likely it will be because the Republicans won’t give him the $4 billion to do his job!”    As always liberals have to have it both ways. Typical of those who “switch hit” anyway.

Let’s take a look at how the $4 billion will be spent …

Are you going to try to send them back?… What are we going to do for the people who are here who are starving already?Why would we add to the problem?”

This young patriot might change his tune if those six kids brought him a big government check. Hopefully he would not, but that…
