Barack Obama Pulls a Move
Almost Worthy of Saddam Hussein

PJ Media, by Bryan Preston

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 2/27/2013 4:56:09 AM

Shortly before U.S. troops stormed Iraq to oust its dictator, Saddam Hussein released thousands of prisoners from Iraqi jails. Some were petty criminals, some were hardcore, some were terrorists. Hussein unleashed them to build his own popularity and to sow chaos. Today, Barack H. Obama’s Department of Homeland Security is doing this: The sequester is officially still three days away, but the Obama administration already is making the first cuts, with officials confirming that the Homeland Security Department has begun to release what it deems low-priority illegal immigrants from detention. The move is proving controversial. Immigrant-rights groups say

How many American citizens will be slaughtered as a result of the mass release of these human assault weapons of mass destruction?

The depraved murderous Islamonazi squatting in the White House will have blood on his hands.

If ever there was a ‘Must Read’, this is IT. Not solely for the sharp points it makes, but to make sure Washington’s Illegal-Immigrant-in-Chief sees — up front — his similarity to the original Hussein.

Originally I wrote ‘likeness’, but changed it to ‘similarity’ when I remembered that the original Hussein released prisoners as a response to the U.S. . . . not to give Hussein’s own citizens the finger.

Another stab in the U.S. back. There´s nothing like releasing burglars etc. to feed on the unwitting public. But hey, anything goes to get an hispanic vote.

This move by Dear Leader could be called blackmail or extortion, but whatever it is it is the mark of a man who hates his country.

But he knows the GOP will not hold him accountable, for anything, so - why not?

The media has gifted us with Obama. Had they done their job, he would have been toast in the 2008 primary. They have no intention of doing anything other than fully supporting him and his policies. Factor in the weakness of the Republican Party and the future is looking pretty grim. Obama is on a mission to destroy this country. Releasing illegal aliens is just another in a long line of tyrannical acts perpetrated on the American public by a faux president, his fawning press, and enabling opposition. When one man has this much power, we cease to be a Republic. Tyranny is tyranny whether under Great Britain or an American President.

If this is so good an idea why not release all the federal prisoners??? And what about those in he Gitmo prison? That was to be closed the first ting he did. Heck if BO can determine who goes to prison and who doesn´t why have courst .... or even laws?? It is a dangerous slope.

Most Presidents have had the power to,do what Obama is doing. This is the first in my life time that has used that power to FUNDAMENALLY TRANSFORM THE USA!

We should have known that sooner or later a President that wanted to be Dictator would gain control.

Now what?

Spot on #5 but who in the public spotlight will have the courage to call this blackmail / extortion for what it is?

Isn´t it stunning if a cut of 2% in spending with projected growth necessitates curtailment of vital government services? Doesn´t that make the case in and of itself for a major reset in policy? These bafoons have the unmitigated gall to admit total failure as if we are all too stupid to recognize it for such.

If this isn´t a call to action I don´t know what is.

I believe the french revolution was also begun by the release of prisoners. When criminals are running the show they favour their own. Obama will clearly sacrifice all the legitimate functions of government Law and Order and Defence first to hang onto all the unconstitutional bloat. Nothing that should be cut will be cut. He is at war with patriotic american citizens until they give him a blank cheque to spend, spend, spend. Trillions are added to the budget baseline and the baseline is increased by 10% each year and it is never enough. When the 10% increase becomes 8% he throws a tantrum like this. The first dime of any cut is calculated to shut down the most important functions of government. There will be no law and order and the military will be used against citizens and he wonders why people cling to their guns!

The liberal Democrats look at the vast majority of illegal aliens as prospective new liberal Democrat voters after they get the wimpy Republicans in the Congress to sign on to a few procedural papers. If the Republicans can´t figure that out they belong on a long slide to political oblivion.

One of the sheriffs in AZ was on Fox News with Greta last night. He said ICE started doing this over the weekend paying overtime to the employees who processed these criminals being released on the public. The sheriff made the point that the two most important functions of government are to protect the public ( from criminals), and national security and Obama is threatening to take away those functions to get his own way. ICE told the AZ sheriffs afterwards that they are not releasing murderers, just "criminal" criminals.

It seems to me that there have been many instances where 0bama and most dems could be prosecuted for treason; for malfeasance and a host of other crimes. IT WILL NEVER HAPPEN. So many violations of the constitution. Czar appointments. Executive orders - removing Congress from it´s duties. Conscience matters. A host of things "they" have done and continue to do. Nothing happens to them. Nothing. Spineless pubbies in Congress will not stand up to 0bama. We the people, once get upset and then we forget about it. And you can figure out the rest of it. One lie becomes truth. Treason? Big time. Tea Party accused of heinous crimes? We are screwed. Nothing legal will bring them down. We have no recourse. I guess we just have to accept it all and shut up.

A whole bunch of Dukakis-Willie Hortons will be roaming free. Google what Willie did after released and you´ll see where this is going.

Obama´s vindictive action against the citizens of the USA is going to backfire, just give it time for the crimes committed by the released to begin adding up. What a mind of a child with a grudge against America.

Don´t tell us there isn´t enough money to keep these illegals in jails: rechannel the money spent on Obama´s travels and the 30,000 drones they plan to have in the US skies by 2020. That should go a long way.

Under the radar weapons and ammo are being stockpiled. Fema camps, Internet kill switch, etc... A long time ago I speculated that bin Hussein would be pi$$ing off a lot of Americans in his second term. His message to Jan Brewer was just that. From here on out he no longer cares if he has the support of the people or not. She said it was chilling. My fear is that, even though he will rule from behind closed doors, someone will make as assassination attempt. From then on all bets are off.

This guy gives a whole new meaning to a Teflon president with the Dictator 0bama. What I am seeing him do is just horrifying. It is terribly frustrating to read about his gross violations of his Oath of Office and know that he will get away with it. What on earth can we do? Holder is as corrupt, if not worse than 0bama. There is no rule of law in this country. It´s so very tiresome always being in a state of worry about what he will do next and never pay the price. I don´t know how to get through four years of this.

Americans better remember Obama said in his own words on page 261 of the paperback edition of:Audacity of Hope
“I will stand with the Muslims should the political winds shift in an ugly direction.”

Yesterday was the 20th anniversary of the 1993 first bombing of the World Trade Center, which was the beginning of the Islamic jihad against America. This man should never have been trusted with the duties of a Commander-In-Chief of the United States of America. I wonder if Saddam was one of Obama´s role models?

It has been demonstrated that BHO is not a natural born citizen, so there is no legal requirement for impeachment. BHO´s removal is a job for our military, who take an oath to protect ... against all enemmies, foreign and domestic.

Our military could take a lesson from the Honduran military, who removed Zelaya for his unconstitutional activities.

"But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security". Thomas Jefferson-The Declaration of Independance.

I am waiting for those who can and have tha ability to do so, rise up and lead another revolution. It´s past time to get rid of the total corruption that is Washingto D.C. and replace it with a goernment that is responsive to the ENTIRE NATION. And that will necessitate some changes in the current Constitution, but that should be no problem. And it´s time to get off our butts and get started.

This very small man who is now our president is ´one piece of work´ - to put it mildly and kindly. Whose handiwork is he? We don´t know. Maybe we´ll find out one of these days down the road a bit.

For now, I´m just trying to avoid looking at or listening to him and his wife. God bless the ones who are in the ´trenches´ fighting for our rights which Obama seems intent on destroying. We ´little people´ in flyover country are feeling helpless right now.

Release of illegals detained is not the release of convicted illegal status criminals.
The first question is why were they detained instead of deported.Deportation would have meant we do would not have housed and fed them at great cost.
2nd question why are so many playing chicken little crying the sky is falling and it´s all those nasty RINO´s fault. That is especially distasteful because those called Rino´s are fellow anti- obama´s who just happen to disagree with the name callers about procedures.
In about 30 ( GOP controled ) states law enforcers should round up these illegals and join forces to do the necessary deportation.
Also consider this is revenge for the deportation hearing to send back to Africa Obe´s illegal status uncle.
One more comment -- the only racial part concerns black detainees from Africa.

Now, he is using pluasable deniability, and throwing Big Fat Sis under the bus, where there is already no more room.

The Teflon pResident strikes again, and in the meantime, the GOP is considering caving on the sequester. "Ceding power to Bambi", they say. Haven´t they been doing that all along?

Weaklings.

The current CR expires in 4-1/2 weeks. Time to slam the hardball right back in his face.

In re #25, the November election was ours to lose. Due to a number of reasons I have expressed before, Obie´s divide and conquer strategy among the opposition ranks worked. Either we voted for Romney, voted for other offices, but could not/would not vote for Romney, or did not vote at all. That is why we let Obie get away with it now.

I told you numerous times that Obama wants to be a dictator like Hitler and he is on his way to doing just that. It will someday become apparent to the ones who elected him, that we are no longer free. We are a socialist, communist nation - no freedom left.,

The Unemployment Puzzle:
Where Have All the Workers Gone?
Wall Street Journal, by Glenn Hubbard    Original Article
Posted By: StormCnter- 4/5/2014 5:35:42 AM     Post Reply
A big puzzle looms over the U.S. economy: Friday´s jobs report tells us that the unemployment rate has fallen to 6.7% from a peak of 10% at the height of the Great Recession. But at the same time, only 63.2% of Americans 16 or older are participating in the labor force, which, while up a bit in March, is down substantially since 2000. As recently as the late 1990s, the U.S. was a nation in which employment, job creation and labor force participation went hand in hand. That is no longer the case. What´s going on? Think of the labor market

Charlie Chaplin´s obsession with young

At parties, Charlie Chaplin could usually be counted on to liven up the atmosphere. Determined to be the centre of attention, he’d mime the parts of a bull and matador or dance with invisible balloons. Then, using his skills as a mimic, he’d pretend to be one Hollywood leading lady after another — in the throes of love-making. Whether he’d slept with them all is open to doubt, but he was incorrigible in making advances to female film stars. He boasted frequently about his conquests, and eventually confessed to having had sexual relations with more than 2,000 women. What did they all

It was the first time I heard about the mother-of-pearl swimming pool that I realized just how much trouble John McCain and the other four senators were in. That pool was the most ornate of the nine oversized pools at The Phoenician, the over-the-top, 130-acre Arizona resort built by Charles H. Keating Jr., the soon-to-be disgraced financier who would become the face of the savings-and-loan crisis in the late 1980s and early 1990s. Keating, who died Monday at the age of 90, told architects that he had wanted guests at the $300 million resort near Phoenix to have the feeling of

Following her speech at the “Women of the World Summit” in New York City on Thursday, Hillary Clinton was asked this simple question by a moderator: “When you look at your time as Secretary of State, what are you most proud of? And what do you feel was unfinished, and maybe have another crack at one day?” Here are a few excerpts from her response: ”Look, I really see my role as Secretary, in fact leadership in general in a democracy, as a relay race. When you run the best race you can run, you hand off the baton.” “Some

One could be forgiven for throwing one’s hands up in despair at the sheer audacity of it all. A fortnight ago, as the federal government took to the courts to defend a rule that deliberately burdens the consciences of America’s more religiously devout entrepreneurs, the professional Left adopted the position that companies do not have consciences, griped that a harsh separation of the public and the private spheres was a recipe for the suffering of unpopular or put-upon individuals, and insisted that any links between the activities of an employee and the deeply held beliefs of his boss should be

How Obama Lost Afghanistan

He said it was ‘the right war.’ Then he did everything he could to screw it up. Despite the violence and uncertainty surrounding this Saturday’s election for a new Afghan President, there’s one positive —Hamid Karzai, the sitting president and the architect of much of the country’s unrest, is not on the ballot this time. But while Karzai must cede power under the rules of the Afghan constitution, the other leader whose mismanagement helped tank Afghanistan abandoned his influence in what he once called “the right war” a long time ago. That leader is President Barack Obama. An outright winner is unlikely

That pesky 1st Amendment:
Liberals’ gripe with free speech

Every time the Supreme Court rules in favor of the First Amendment in a campaign-finance case, the left recoils in disgust. The court’s 5-4 decision in McCutcheon v. FEC is the latest occasion for the rending of garments and gnashing of teeth. The court struck down the limit on the aggregate amount a donor can give to candidates and political-party committees, ruling it incompatible with First Amendment protections for political expression. The left pronounced itself outraged. Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.), who has $11 million in his campaign treasury despite being a de facto senator for life, called the decision “another step on

Hot Air, by Allahpundit    Original Article

So it’s like every other “gun-free zone,” basically. Anyone who can be trusted with a weapon can’t have one, and anyone who can’t be trusted will have little trouble ignoring the rule. Makes sense. Here’s the answer to my question yesterday about how useful the current ban on guns inside military bases is in keeping them out. At Fort Hood, which sprawls for 340 square miles over the Texas prairie, Specialist Lopez was being treated for behavioral and mental health issues. To enter the base, he would have undergone no security screening beyond showing his identification and would have passed through no

In the untamed world of online comment sections, no one is more vulnerable to criticism than doctors, who are restricted by confidentiality laws from defending themselves against even the most outlandish of claims. With patients increasingly dependent on internet marketplaces to find care — and increasingly prone to frustration — it’s the caregivers who get hurt. At first glance, the homepage for Philip Leggett, M.D., appeared unremarkable. Visitors were greeted with stock photos of smiling faces in a banner across the top; Leggett’s credentials as a respected laparoendoscopic surgeon were in bold type. But closer examination revealed something curious: the patient

Jeb Bush and the 2016 GOP Field

George Will wrote a column in which he said of Jeb Bush, “A candidacy by Florida’s former governor would be desirable” and “[he] does … deserve a respectful hearing from the Republican nominating electorate.” I agree, partly because I admire Bush, who was a highly successful, reform-minded conservative governor. His record as governor of Florida was, in fact, more conservative in key respects than Ronald Reagan’s record when he was governor of California. (Mr. Reagan signed into law what at the time was the largest tax hike ever proposed by any governor, whereas Bush cut taxes every year he was governor,

In his plurality opinion in yesterday´s free-speech case, McCutcheon v. Federal Election Commission, Chief Justice John Roberts notes an anomaly in contemporary "liberal" First Amendment jurisprudence: "If the First Amendment protects flag burning, funeral protests, and Nazi parades--despite the profound offense such spectacles cause--it surely protects political campaign speech despite popular opposition." We´d take the point a step further. The examples Roberts cites all involve fringe political expression.(Snip)So why have the court´s "liberals" adopted a hostile attitude toward political speech, which has long been understood

Democratic Rep. Jim Moran of Virginia wants you to know that, at $174,000 a year, members of Congress are underpaid. Because Jim Moran, like others, doesn´t understand actual economic hardship and, frankly, isn´t that great at politics either. Moran is not the only public official to make a dubious claim about salary hardship in the past 24 hours. Larry Schwartz is secretary to New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, a position that´s a sort of like chief of staff in the state. Schwartz was discussing a proposal backed by Cuomo that would freeze property taxes on people at certain income levels.

The State Department has no idea what happened to $6 billion used to pay its contractors. In a special “management alert” made public Thursday, the State Department’s Inspector General Steve Linick warned “significant financial risk and a lack of internal control at the department has led to billions of unaccounted dollars over the last six years. The alert was just the latest example of the federal government’s continued struggle with oversight over its outside contractors. The lack of oversight “exposes the department to significant financial risk,” the auditor said. “It creates conditions conducive to fraud, as corrupt individuals may attempt

In his opening statement during highly anticipated testimony Wednesday on Benghazi, former CIA deputy director Michael Morell claimed to be an intelligence professional who was willing to lay out the facts -- no matter how damaging. "I take very seriously the allegations about how the CIA in general and about how I in particular handled the analysis and the talking points," Morell told the House Intelligence Committee, in his first public testimony on the Benghazi attacks. "The ethical code under which intelligence officers carry out their responsibilities calls for total objectivity." But Morell´s own testimony would appear to undercut that

Mozilla CEO Brendan Eich will step down following uproar over his apparent opposition to gay marriage. In a statement released Thursday, Mozilla -- which makes the Firefox Web browser -- apologized for not reacting more quickly to the controversy surrounding Eich, who made a 2008 donation supporting California´s plan on gay marriage, The Guardian reports. "We know why people are hurt and angry, and they are right: it´s because we haven´t stayed true to ourselves," said Mozilla executive chairwoman Mitchell Baker in a statement.

Earlier this week on Boston’s WRKO-AM’s The Howie Carr Show, conservative commentator Ann Coulter shocked some conservatives when she said she is making 2012 Republican nominee Mitt Romney her favorite for the 2016 Republican contest. Last month in an interview on CBS’s Face the Nation, Romney himself ruled out the possibility of a 2016 run and said he was instead focused on who to get behind in that contest. Coulter, however, wishes otherwise. “Well, don´t tell him but I´m planning on giving Mitt Romney a little more time to rest -- flying out, kidnapping him and depriving him of sleep, food and

Muslim moms and dads in Dearborn, Mich. are upset after students received flyers promoting an Easter Egg hunt at a local Presbyterian church. The parents say the egg hunt violates the U.S. Constitution. The Muslims told the Detroit Free-Press that they were concerned about the religious implications of Cherry Hill Presbyterian Church’s “Eggstravaganza!” They were also troubled by images of a bunny rabbit. “It really bothered my two kids,” parent Majed Moughni, told the newspaper. “My son was like, ‘Dad, I really don’t feel comfortable getting these flyers, telling me to go to church.

A 54-year-old white man has been left barely clinging to life after he was brutally beaten by a group of black men when he got out of his car to check on a young black boy he accidentally hit. Steve Utash, from suburban Roseville, was beaten into a coma Wednesday by an angry mob in a poverty-stricken Detroit neighborhood after David Harris, 10, ran in front of his truck on a busy street, but police insist the incident was not racially motivated. The gang also stole his wallet before leaving him for dead. Utash is in extremely critical

It´s the end of an era: David Letterman announced Thursday that he´s retiring from CBS´ "Late Show" sometime next year. He made that announcement during the taping of his program this afternoon. The late-night talk show host, who will celebrate his 67th birthday next week, made his debut on the "Late Show" on Aug. 30, 1993. Letterman got his television start in 1978 on the CBS variety series "Mary," starring Mary Tyler Moore. Months later, he paid his first visit to "The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson" -- marking the first of 22 appearances. He also guest-hosted "Tonight" numerous times.

Attorney General Eric Holder disputed a Government Accountability Office report on his use of Justice Department airplanes for personal trips, saying it overstated the number of trips he took and failed to recognize that some trips were job-related. "My staff keeps telling me to take it easy, you know, well, this is one that gets me," Holder told Rep. Frank Wolf, R-Va., during a House Appropriations subcommittee hearing. "There was this notion that we´ve taken -- I think it was described as hundreds of personal trips. That was wrong. GAO counted flights, not round trips. And we looked at it

According to a report via BuzzFeed’s Evan McMorris-Santoro, President Barack Obama requested the opportunity to address the nation in prime time on the major broadcast networks on Tuesday night to announce that the Affordable Care Act had reached 7 million enrollees. Those networks did not, however, accommodate the White House’s request. “Three sources familiar with the request confirmed the White House asked for the prime time slot in their effort both to emphasize a bright moment following the challenging roll out and, more important, to try to reintroduce the country to a law that remains unpopular,”

Do you think members of Congress are overpaid or underpaid? Most likely you’d go with the former, but Democratic congressman Jim Moran argues it’s actually the latter. In an interview with CQ Roll Call, Moran says, “I think the American people should know that the members of Congress are underpaid.” The House recently took up a bill to freeze members’ paychecks, placing another halt on the annual cost-of-living pay increases they would normally get and keeping annual salary at $174,000. Moran believes that this is the wrong way to go, not necessarily talking about himself in particular, but saying there

President Barack Obama contended that the government did not “make a hard sell” for Obamacare, despite his administration spending nearly $700 million to promote the law. “We didn’t make a hard sell,” Obama said in the Rose Garden on Tuesday, praising the 7.1 million sign ups for the Affordable Care Act. “We didn’t have billions of dollars of commercials like some critics did.” However, last July the Associated Press reported that Obamacare’s marketing campaign would cost at least $684 million. Taxpayer funding went to all 50 states in efforts to encourage people to enroll, including nearly $28 million for the
