White House responds to secession
petitions, calls for unity instead

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Alexandra Jaffe

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 1/12/2013 1:20:09 PM

The White House has responded to a handful of petitions calling for various states to be given the right to secede from the United States, calling for unity and participatory government instead. "In a nation of 300 million people — each with their own set of deeply-held beliefs — democracy can be noisy and controversial. And that´s a good thing. Free and open debate is what makes this country work, and many people around the world risk their lives every day for the liberties we often take for granted," writes Director of the Office of Public Engagement

Uh huh, since 0bama and his out of control regime are such unifiers. s/o There is so much hypocrisy in that response you don´t even know where to start. That jerk is ripping this country apart and it sure isn´t going to improve over the next four years.

I read the lead in and that was enough for me. Hussein is the worst president this nation has ever had. He makes Jimmy Carter look like a prince.

Everybody knows these petitions were largely to send a message of dissatisfaction with Obama´s abuse of power and other power grabs.For these idiots to then stand there and call for unity is absurd,when they´re the ones provoking all the disunity.

You can´t read one new site where Obama isn´t planning on going around congress on one issue or another.The government was intentionally split up so a power craving marxist couldn´t declare full authority.

The debt ceiling is about to go to 18+ trillion which means Obama will spend more borrowed money in 6 years than all other presidents before him combined.Even worse is there will be no bang for the buck in any of it.

Talk of unity while subverting it......next time, there will be no petitions, no polite entreaties.

The Director of the Office of Public Engagement? Sounds like something from "1984".

So which it they want? Unity or diversity? They are not the same thing.

That there are so many States wanting to secede is amazing. At least they recognize what Obama is doing to the USA -- disuniting them.

It´s all on his head. Personally, I´d like to see the secession movement grow. Big.

This from the administration that is about to confirm at least 3 anti-Americans to cabinet positions. Lew refuses to work with the Republicans at all, and refuses to do anything to pay down the debt or deficit. He and the others work for Mr.O, not for the American people.

The national givernment no longer represents the American people. How can the most divisive potus in history expect the citizens to work for unity when he does not.

we need to go back to having the states be the principle tax and spend governmental unit. there is too big a divide in the country and it will continue to grow.

i dont care to live in California, NY and NJ and dont want to spend my tax dollars supporting the way they do things. i am sure they feel the same about states like TX, AZ, Florida etc.

What the heck are we doing, groveling, hat in hand to ask our uberloard 0bama PERMISSION to secede? I´m pretty sure that is not how the founders intended it, regardless of Lincoln´s "folly."

The states joined of free will and are entitled--have always had the RIGHT--to leave.

No one should ever be forced to stay in a relationship, as Jefferson so elegantly declared. We have a divine right to liberty!

For them to address this topic publicly sounds like it´s more than a casual issue. Obama´s moves this week have made me suspicious of what´s happening behind the scenes. His quick plan to end the war and vacate Afghanistan makes one wonder. Also, what was this lifetime protection bill he signed? Now the secession remark...doesn´t sound like a happy White House.

The First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution gives citizens the right "to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.” That is a legal issue. The White House response is a public relations response, and I don´t blame them for trying it. But if people have grievances, they can seek relief under the law, as I read the Constitution.

Aww But Obe the those millions of independent thinkers are what is called a Republic > A Constitutional Republic is stated in the Constitution and by law as our official form of Government.
In the form of a representative Republic NOT a Democracy.
Take your democracy worded as one unit tuned to obey you and drop it into the nearest trash compactor crawl in with it and close the lid.

This is a preemptive "binding up the wounds" Gettysburg Address speech theft.

How do you ensure that you won’t be ostracized, denounced, or fired if you are a media celebrity, captain of industry, or high public official? For some, sexist banter is certainly no problem. Stand-up comedian Bill Maher called Sarah Palin a c–t and a tw-t, but suffered no ill consequences. David Letterman joked on air that Sarah Palin’s 14-year-old daughter had had sex with Alex Rodriguez during a New York Yankees game. There was no downside to that either. President Obama tosses around “sweetie” as he wishes. No problem with that. No one believes Barack could be condescending to women.

Sheesh! Talk about a complete ingrate... Many people suspect that the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) instigated an over the top paramilitary confrontation with Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy at the behest of Senator Harry Reid especially since the new BLM director, Neil Kornze, was an aide to Reid. So how does Harry´s son, Rory Reid, thank the BLM rangers for putting their lives at risk over desert tortoises that are being euthanized by the Feds? Why, he slams them as "losers" on Las Vegas television station KSNV where Rory serves as a commentator from the left. You can see Reid in

After his Masters victory, pro golfer Bubba Watson celebrated with his family at a Waffle House. Pictures tweeted from there went viral. Waffle House appreciated the appreciation. What´s not to like about this great story? Apparently some self-appointed nanny state-loving guardians of nutrition like Katherine Tallmadge believe that Watson set a bad example for Americans by eating there. Oh, and with her powers of telepathy, she just knows that Watson´s a complete phony about what he really eats. She went after Watson on one of Neil Cavuto´s Fox programs yesterday, and in doing so caught talk show host Rush Limbaugh´s

Less than a minute into his speech at the Boston marathon bombing memorial on Tuesday, Vice President Joe Biden went tragically off script and told the crowd of Boston bombing survivors that "it was worth it." After expressing how impressed he was with the tribute, he said somberly, "let me say to those ´quote survivors,´ my God, you have survived and you have soared. It was worth it. I mean this sincerely - just to hear each of you speak. You´re truly, truly inspiring." The audience sat in stunned silence until Biden declared, "I´ve never heard anything so beautiful than

Without mentioning reports that the man accused of shooting up a Jewish Community Center over the weekend was apparently a fan of the left´s Max Blumenthal, CNN National Security Analyst Peter Bergen exploited the murders to claim the American Right is more deadly than jihadists. In fact, since 9/11 extremists affiliated with a variety of far-right wing ideologies, including white supremacists, anti-abortion extremists and anti-government militants, have killed more people in the United States than have extremists motivated by al Qaeda´s ideology. According to a count by the New America Foundation, right wing extremists have killed 34 people in the

It’s not every day that Bill O’Reilly accuses someone else of expressing “right-wing paranoia,” but that’s what happened Tuesday night when he faced off with Fox News contributor Monica Crowley over a proposed solution to the controversy over voter ID laws. O’Reilly began his show by giving a soft endorsement to an idea put forward by former President Bill Clinton that would add photos to social security cards, which American citizens are already required to have in their possession. “I am all for combating voter fraud by using voter I.D.,” Crowley told O’Reilly. “My issue with the social security card in particular

Neurosurgeon Ben Carson says the White House wanted him to apologize for “offending” President Obama after he famously delivered a conservative message at the National Prayer Breakfast last year. Carson, the former director of pediatric neurosurgery at Johns Hopkins Hospital, recalls the events surrounding his 2013 speech in his new book, One Nation: What We Can All Do To Save America’s Future. The Daily Caller obtained an advance copy of the book, which is set for release May 20. “He did not appear to be hostile or angry,” Carson writes of Obama, “but within a matter of minutes after the conclusion of

President Obama inspired a generation of young people to support his historic election in 2008. And in 2012, despite the struggles of his first term, Mr. Obama still managed to win the support of a full 60% of voters age 18-29. But the man who once dreamed of being a transformative leader in the Reagan mold is inspiring few of those young people to follow his lead. "For all the talk about the movement that elected Mr. Obama, the more notable movement of Obama supporters has been away from politics. It appears that few of the young people who voted

On Saturday, I wrote about the standoff at Bundy Ranch. That post drew a remarkable amount of traffic, even though, as I wrote then, I had not quite decided what to make of the story. Since then, I have continued to study the facts and have drawn some conclusions. Here they are. First, it must be admitted that legally, Bundy doesn’t have a leg to stand on. The Bureau of Land Management has been charging him grazing fees since the early 1990s, which he has refused to pay. Further, BLM has issued orders limiting the area on which Bundy’s cows can

Chelsea Clinton says when people ask her these days whether she wants to go into politics, her answer isn’t an automatic “no.” The 34-year-old former first daughter told Fast Company in an interview published Monday, “for so long the answer was just a visceral no. Not because I had made any conscientious, deliberate decision, but since people had been asking for as long as literally I could remember, it was no." Now, the only child of former President Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton explains, "I live in a city and a state and a country where I

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

Western Washington University sent a questionnaire to students asking them for advice on how the administration could succeed at making sure that in future years, “we are not as white as we are today.” The question notes that WWU’s racial make up does not perfectly reflect the nation at large, and asks students to consider strategies that other universities have used to focus on skin color as the paramount indicator of a student-applicant’s worth. The president of WWU has stated that his explicit goal is to reduce the white population on campus, according to Campus Reform. “I’ve said before and I’ll say it

Hank Aaron’s recent comments about the need for America to realize that racism is still very much alive and thriving — only now due to those who wear “neckties and starched shirts” rather than KKK hoods — has sparked an angry backlash and many fans are turning the tables, calling the baseball legend himself a racist. “Hank Aaron is a s*****g piece of [expletive] [racial slur],” one man said in an email to the Atlanta Braves’ front office, one of the teams Mr. Aaron used to play for, CBS News reported. “My old man instilled in my mind from a
