Obama´s second inaugural
to be themed ´Faith in
America´s Future´

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 11/29/2012 3:14:42 PM

President Obama´s second inaugural ceremony will be focused around the theme of "Faith in America´s Future," congressional organizers announced Thursday. The inaugural program will pay tribute to the nation´s "perseverance and unity," the Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies said in a press release. And the ceremony will mark the 150th anniversary of the completion of the Capitol Dome in 1863. Construction on the dome was threatened during the American Civil War, but work continued despite a budget strained by the costs of the war.

Comments:
Oh the bitter irony and hypocrisy. Leave it to the regime to come up with something that is so optimistic and hopeful when in reality 0bama is doing all he can do to destroy America´s future. This is one person who will be not watching that horrific event.

Why not? Just after the #1 Grifter steps off the AF1 fresh from a month long vacation in Hawaii at the estimated cost of 4 million. Aren´t the elite ruling class in this country and their useful idiots...grand?

He is actually giving the finger to those of us who are really on to what his goals really are.
Forward was the name of the communist newspaper in NYC decades ago, and his campaign slogan. He has been "in your face" all along and is laughing at the dumb masses.

There is no "future" with Bow-Boy and his socialist/izlamic/communist/anarchist goons and and chief baboon "Hairy Reed".

Get used to it. No future.

Exactly what Bow-Boy wants, no future. It´s payback time. Anything Bow-Boy spouts just turn it 180 degrees for the correct interpretation.

Bow-Boy´s intent is no American future, destroy America.

Now, all those idiots that voted for Bow-Boy will now "be punished." Too bad we will be too as the rain falls both on the just and unjust.

Loathable lying izlamic pig that he is.

Any bets in one year, approval at 30%, and Republicans finally showing some guts and moving to impeach on array of corruption issues Fast and Furious, Benghazi, Solyndra, spying on Petraeus and setting up a soviet style honey (hot bade compromise) pot to compromise the general to eliminate a political threat, just to name a few.

Somewhere in a secret laboratory special skin tones are being formulated by young zealots to give their Lord and Savior an aura of holiness. The press will report that he has some inner glow, like a GOD is shining through. Some worshippers in the first few rows will faint, overcome by his presence.

Let us all take a look at #20´s accusations of racism.

The lead comment was negative, and it was about 0, therefore, it was "racist."

The poster needs to purchase and watch the DVD, "Dreams from my REAL Father." 0 is a Marxist and his minions are Marxists.

"Illegal" can mean many things. Barry Soetoro/Barack Hussein Obama is likely the son of non other than Frank Marshall Davis, known registered Communist party member. Nude photos of Obama´s mother taken in a home where Davis lived exist. Furthermore, 0 resembles Davis and Davis´ children. Barry Soetoro was adopted by Lolo Soetoro and Barry was registered in Indonesian schools as an Indonesian citizen. An "illegal" president would be one who is not legally qualified to hold office, who is not a natural born citizen. IF Barry/Barack ever was a natural born American citizen, he relinquished his citizenship when he became a foreign citizen. At best, Barry/Barack is a naturalized citizen. Barry/Barack also accepted a Fulbright scholarship for foreign students. Barry/Barack also traveled to Pakistan at a time that American citizens could not travel there.

#11 the reason he is willing to destroy America as we know it is that he and his children will forever be part of the elite ruling class. Those girls will never be required to survive the mundane lives of "work hard to make ends meet" that most of us here do. They´ll ascend to positions of power, well paid for just being who they are. They have the name, the pedigree, to wreck havoc on American principles for years to come. No, he´s not worried about his children, and he doesn´t care about yours and mine.

House Republican defends Putin:
No ´communist,´ no ´power grab´
Washington Examiner, by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: KarenJ1- 3/28/2014 2:23:40 PM     Post Reply
A top House Republican and former Reagan aide is dismissing claims that Russian President Vladimir Putin is trying to restore the Soviet Union, suggesting instead that the Kremlin leader is acting like former President Reagan in helping the cause of democracy in Crimea and Ukraine. According to California Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, Putin “is not a communist leader” and his military’s push into neighboring countries “is not a power grab.” Speaking against Thursday’s House approval of a $1 billion aid package to Ukraine, Rohrabacher also warned that the U.S. was spending itself into bankruptcy and that Washington will have to beg

Former Vice President Dick Cheney late Thursday said he did not regret pushing enhanced interrogation techniques under the Bush administration. “If I would have to do it all over again, I would,” Cheney said at American University, according to its student newspaper The Eagle. “The results speak for themselves.” Three people were waterboarded when he was vice president, Cheney said. The technique entails pouring large quantities of water over a person’s nose and mouth, which is meant to simulate drowning. “Some people called it torture. It wasn’t torture,” Cheney told the campus’s student-run TV station. A group of students and people attending the event

"This is my last election," President Obama said in words caught on an open mic. "After my election, I have more flexibility." He was speaking in Seoul, South Korea, in March 2012, almost exactly two years ago, to Dmitry Medvedev, then in his last year as Vladimir Putin´s stand-in president of Russia. The subject was missile defense, and Obama was apparently seeking time to assuage Russia´s objections that a proposed U.S. missile defense system, sited in Romania, Poland, Turkey and Spain, would not be aimed at Russian missiles. Earlier, in September 2009, Obama canceled missile defense installations in Poland and

Obama White House Continues to Swindle
Young People Through "Affordable" Care Act

During an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last month, First Lady Michelle Obama called young people "knuckleheads" for refusing to sign up for Obamacare. As the data and numbers on Obamacare continue to be analyzed, especially for young people, it appears the real knuckleheads are those who think millenials can actually afford health insurance under the "Affordable" Care Act. Forbes Contributor Scott Gottlieb is out with a piece today detailing the cost of Obamacare health plans for young people making between $25,000 and $45,000 per year. The prices are astounding.

Yesterday, a Twitter fight exploded when Ebony senior editor Jamilah Lemieux dismissed RNC deputy press secretary Raffi Williams as “a white dude trying to tell me how to do this Black thing.” However, Raffi is not a “white dude,” as those of us who know him can attest, but is African-American. Lemieux later offered an apology of sorts for not checking his Twitter profile more closely, but as Twitchy noted, that was hardly the salient issue at hand. Today, the RNC decided to escalate the situation. RNC chair Reince Priebus wants an apology from Ebony, and has published an open letter

With their grip on the Senate in danger and with few winning issues to run on, Democrats are trying to turn the midterms into a referendum on the Koch brothers. Charles Koch, 78, and David Koch, 73, who run the second-largest privately held company in the country, are pouring a chunk of their vast fortune into helping Republicans take back the Senate. The billionaire MIT graduates have been hugely successful in building Koch Industries, a company founded by and named after their father, into a multinational conglomerate with $115 billion in annual revenues and 100,000 employees, 60,000 of whom work

Just days before the Affordable Care Act deadline, White House press secretary Jay Carney said Friday the administration is “confident” the healthcare website will be able to handle the volume of users in the final push. Speaking to reporters as President Obama traveled to Saudi Arabia, Carney would not say how many sign-ups they are expecting in the final few days. The deadline for signing up is Monday, though the administration says people who have attempted to start an account before March 31 can still enroll in the exchanges after the deadline. Carney did not make any announcements about what events Obama would

Support of for the healthcare law stands at 26 percent in a poll conducted by The Associated Press. The AP-GFK poll released Friday showed little change from a January AP poll that found 27 percent of the public supported the law. Opposition to the law stands at 43 percent. Opposition peaked shortly after the law´s passage in 2010 at 50 percent. The AP poll finds that, while support for the law has diminished in the last few years, opposition hasn´t drastically increased. That is because a large section of the public, 30 percent, now say they neither support nor oppose the law. That

Through its tears and between its heavy sobs at having a gun controller so ruthlessly exposed, the LA Times reports: The complaint says Yee described his approach to arms dealing as “agnostic.” “People want to get whatever they want to get. Do I care? No, I don’t care. People need certain things,” Yee said,

Some of us who don’t belong to the Beltway’s elite read Barack Obama early on. He is rigidly ideological, he knows nothing about national security, and will be bullied by other, more experienced world leaders. Some inside the nation’s political sinkhole did too — Hillary Clinton’s “3 AM” commercial argued that Obama wasn’t ready to be the leader of the free world. I’m no fan of Clinton’s, and honestly she isn’t any more prepared to lead than Obama was, but that ad was dead-on. National Journal’s Ron Fournier has finally figured Obama out, and written a grimly enjoyable column about how

Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) said the fault of struggling to sign up on the Obamacare exchanges didn’t lie with the faulty website, but with the people who weren’t “educated on how to use the Internet.” Explaining the reasoning behind the latest Obamacare delay, Reid said too many people just didn’t know to use their computer properly and needed more time. Apparently, it had nothing to do with the well-documented failings of the website that have embarrassed the White House for months. “We have hundreds of thousands of people who tried to sign up who didn’t get through,” he said.

Okay, THAT was certainly embarrassing. At the end of a joint news conference with Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte in the Netherlands on Tuesday, the applause for Barack Obama came from a grand total of one guy. One. After thanking the crowd twice for suffering through his boring, standard worn-out spiel, Obama looked around the room, expecting the usual fanfare and applause he receives from his loyal followers back home. It never came. Instead, the Leader of the Free World was met with one slow, awkward clap. Question: was MSNBC’s Chris Matthews in the house?

U.S. President Barack Obama and Pope Francis met Thursday for the first time at Vatican City, offering a chance for a reset of sorts between the administration and Catholic leadership following years of strained relations. The two world leaders greeted each other with a smile and a handshake, and posed for pictures before sitting down across a table from each other. The goal of the meeting: Focus on areas where two of the world´s most influential men agree and gently tread ground where they differ. The President and the Pontiff will, as the White House said in a statement, focus on "shared commitment

Nearly six in 10 people disapprove of President Obama´s job performance in a new poll by the Associated Press, the highest rating recorded by the newswire. According to the AP-GFK survey released Wednesday, 59 percent disapprove of Obama´s job performance while 41 percent approve. A similar poll released by the news outlet in January found 45 percent approved of him while 53 percent disapproved. Other recent polling has found Obama´s disapproval rating slightly lower, remaining in the low 50s. A CBS News poll Tuesday showed 50 percent disapproval, while Gallup has his disapproval at 52 percent. In the AP poll,

On Tuesday night two things happened. 1. A trio of Secret Service agents were sent home from Amsterdam after one was found passed out drunk in a hotel hallway. 2. The Obama Administration announced (another) extension of the enrollment deadline for Obamacare signups. At first glance, these two events have little in common with one another. But, modern politics is all about narratives and storylines. And, both of these events confirm a growing concern from the public about President Obama: That he´s just not up to governing his administration and, by extension, the country, effectively.
