The Border Crisis Is Obama’s Hurricane
Katrina? Don’t Be Ridiculous!

Power Line, by John Hinderaker

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 10:51:46 PM

Some (including some Democrats) are saying that the crisis on the Southwestern border is President Obama’s Hurricane Katrina. But there are at least two fundamental differences between the illegal immigration fiasco and Katrina. First, the response to Hurricane Katrina was actually the largest and the fastest response to any natural disaster in history, as Popular Mechanics, as I recall, later documented. Second, President Bush didn’t cause the hurricane. The current disaster is entirely attributable to Barack Obama’s willful refusal to enforce the immigration laws, in violation of his oath of office. Is Obama’s subversion of the nation’s laws an impeachable offense?

George Bush did nothing wrong in Katrina. But he was crucified by the unholy marriage of the Demon-RATS and the MSM.

Øvomit has done everything intentionally and purely evil in the border crisis, but is being totally protected by the MSM.

New day, same old story.

The President of the US, Bush followed the constitution and waited for the local authorities to ask for federal help.

Unfortunately the recently convicted Nagin was incompetent.

In contrast the border issue is BECAUSE of Obama´s FEDERAL policies and lack of enforcement and the local authorities are having to react.

Perhaps in a just world, we will see the incompetent party thrown in jail for corruption again.

Obama´s price tag for taking care of each illegal immigrant child - $75,000

Cost of a bus ticket to send that child back to their parents - $200

The response to Hurricane Katrina at the real ´Ground Zero´ here on the Mississippi coast, was superb! I know, I had 14 feet of water in my yard from the storm surge, and my (raised) house is the southernmost house in my neighborhood that was still standing after the storm. The response in Louisiana was impeded by the Democrat-party governor and New Orleans officials, specifically to make President Bush look bad.
On the other hand, as far as I can tell, the illegal-immigrant crises is a direct result of Obama´s dereliction of duty and his decision to not secure the border with Mexico.

...it may not be his "Katrina", but Barry can take satisfaction in knowing that his actions and inactions have created the "Perfect Storm"...

...Hinderaker brings up a good point in the last paragraph. Mexico is notorious for the control on their southern border, amazing how many have snuck through...

As I recall Katrina, even the supply trucks couldn´t get through for 3 or 4 days due to flood water everywhere. What on earth more could Pres. Bush have done after the stupid Gov, of Louisiana and jailbird mayor Nagin both refused the President´s pre storm offer of help. All he could do was to overlook the flooding, but he did manage to be a presence at Waveland, Mississippi which was destroyed by the sea surge. There is no comparison of an act of nature to this purposeful planned disaster - I would say this is Obama´s downfall.

Apart from what is actually happening at the border, Obama is establishing a very important principle here, which will be of crucial value in his remaining years in office: an American president, if Democrat, is above the law, since ignoring, flaunting and breaking laws (and oaths of office) now goes completely unpunished. We can thank the GOP for helping Obama establish this "with impunity if Democrat" principle, and we can´t wait to see how Barack Hussein will utilise it in the coming months.

Some will argue that this historic "With Impunity If Democrat" principle only applies to black-Leftist presidents and that all will be back to normal after 2016, but I think we all know that isn´t the case at all.

Not enforcing border security and immigration laws is a perfect way to bankrupt the country faster and get more of his MB jihadists freely into the country, not to mention all the criminals and diseases.

Will you all please stop the "he broke the law bit"?
Zero cannot break the law. He IS the law. He, by his own proclamation, is judge, jury, and executioner. He has a constitution in his head which he follows. In his authority document Congress and the Courts play no role. The chief Czar and all his sub-Czars RULE.
He cannot be impeached. Race riots would ensue. He cannot be controlled. The RINOs in Congress do not want to control him, as he has the goods on them, by golly. That is why he has an FBI and an NSA, after all.
He is a tyrant, after the model of Stalin and Kim Jong Il. We are stuck with him.

Whether lamenting the so-called vacationer-in-chief´s swing of a golf club or criticizing his handling of the healthcare rollout, Republicans are getting in the habit of comparing President Obama to a monarch. "It´s one thing after another. You know he says he has no choice but to act. He says he has a pen and a phone and he´s going to act," Sen.

Lower corporate tax rates. Now.

The Obama administration is highly exercised about “inversion,” the practice by which an American corporation acquires a foreign company and moves its headquarters out of the United States to benefit from lower tax rates abroad. Not fair, says Barack Obama. It’s taking advantage of an “unpatriotic tax loophole” that hardworking American families have to make up for by the sweat of their brow. His treasury secretary calls such behavior a violation of “economic patriotism.” Nice touch. Democrats used to wax indignant about having one’s patriotism questioned. Now they throw around the charge with abandon, tossing it at corporations that refuse

WASHINGTON — A House Republican-led investigation of the 2012 terrorist attack on an American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, Libya, will extend well into next year, and possibly beyond, raising concerns among Democrats that Republicans are trying to damage Hillary Rodham Clinton’s presidential prospects. Representative Trey Gowdy, Republican of South Carolina and the chairman of the House select committee on Benghazi, said his go-slow investigation was not motivated by politics. He said that he had gone out of his way to maintain good relations with Democrats on the committee, asking Representative Elijah Cummings of Maryland, the panel’s ranking Democrat, to join him

Ukraine’s U.N. envoy Oleksandr Pavlichenko says Russia’s military action -- sending tanks and troops across the border -- amounted to an “invasion,” although the Obama administration has not used that term. “Do you consider today´s escalation in Ukraine an invasion?” President Obama was asked during a press conference on Thursday. “I consider the actions that we’ve seen in the last week a continuation of what´s been taking place for months now,” he replied.

Obama first hired Kass in 2008 as his family’s personal chef, eventually bringing him to the White House and tapping him as an advisor for nutrition policy and the executive director for Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! initiative. Insiders say that the president considers Kass as family, and that the two have a long-standing golf/basketball/every-sport-ever rivalry. The New Rochelle Talk

Rather than using the refrain "no means no," the definition of consent under the bill requires "an affirmative, unambiguous and conscious decision" by each party to engage in sexual activity.

He mentioned four times his intention to seek advice from Capitol Hill before deploying more military assets in the Middle East, likely in response to concerns from members of the House and Senate that he was unconstitutionally freezing them out.

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla.— Former Republican Gov. Charlie Crist continued his political comeback Tuesday as Democratic voters selected him as their nominee to challenge Republican Gov. Rick Scott in Florida, one of four states where voters were choosing candidates for statewide office. Crist easily defeated former state Sen. Nan Rich, while Scott coasted in his own primary toward a general election matching the state’s last two Republican governors. Both have struggled with sagging approval ratings and run-ins with conservatives. “It’s a wonderful night,” Crist declared after accepting a concession call from Rich.

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, part of the Department of Transportation, published last week an "advanced notice of proposed rulemaking" on "vehicle-to-vehicle communications." What NHTSA is proposing could begin a transformation in the American transportation system that makes our lives better and freer — or gives government more power over where we go and when. In announcing its proposed rulemaking, NHTSA is stressing its intention to protect the "privacy" of American drivers. "This document initiates rulemaking that would propose to create a new Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard, FMVSS No. 150, to require vehicle-to-vehicle communication capability for light vehicles,"
