Dianne Feinstein, Friend of Terrorists

6a00d8341c730253ef01910260efff970cOriginally posted at American Thinker

If you close your eyes and listen, you’ll probably hear the sound of Senate Select Committee on Intelligence Chair Dianne Feinstein (D-CA), moral, upstanding person that she is, wringing her hands.  Thanks to Dianne and her insistence that a report exposing the CIA’s overseas handling of 119 terrorists be released, America is getting a good dose of absurd liberal reasoning.

Dianne Feinstein is among those who have the audacity to point the finger of accusation at CIA operatives for splashing water in the face of the confessed architect of 9/11, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, but have no problem with the paper-thin skin of an unborn baby being peeled away from its fragile bones while still in the womb.

Neither is she, nor many of her Executive Amnesty cohorts who are sympathetic to fiends like Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri, who helped plan the bombing of the USS Cole, killing 17 Americans and injuring 39, worried about the helpless infants and small children being exposed to deadly Third World diseases.

Instead, the woman who said it was “morally correct” to force pro-life taxpayers to fund abortion took to the Senate floor to bemoan CIA operatives causing discomfort to terrorists who view American and Jewish lives much like pro-abortion women view preborn humans: worthless.

Leaving aside Dianne’s personal gripe with the Central Intelligence Agency, isn’t it a tad hypocritical for a person who has no problem burning fetuses with saline, dismembering them with suction apparatus, and using a scalpel to remove the brain of a partially born human being to lecture anyone about the inhumanity of subjecting terrorists to sleep deprivation and loud music?

Suddenly, the woman who voted “No” on banning partial-birth abortion is concerned about the “fundamental principles of right and wrong?” What is Dianne, with her 100%-NARAL-rating, saying?  That if unborn babies were “tummy-slapped” or waterboarded to death she would oppose the “ugly, visceral” procedure called abortion?

Moreover, if exposing rogue government agencies is what Ms. Feinstein is so passionate about, maybe she should encourage her colleagues in the Democratic Party to investigate the political torture visited upon innocent US citizens by the government agency known as the IRS.

Or better yet, how about exploring Obama’s possible connection to supplying Mexican cartels with the guns that killed Border Agent Brian Terry and ICE Agent Jaime Zapata?

In her pious comments pertaining to “enhanced interrogation techniques,” the senator from California lamented the treatment of high-ranking al Qaeda operative Abu Zubaydah at the hands of an agency that worked tirelessly to shield the American people from another 9/11.

According to the report, Abu Zubaydah was “stripped naked and diapered, physically struck, and put in various painful stress positions for long periods of time” which, by comparison, was probably an experience far less terrifying than choking on jet fuel while being burned alive.

The 6,700 page study on the CIA’s detention and interrogation program revealed that Mr. Zubaydah, as well as other fiendish terrorist types, was “deprived of sleep for days” and forced, the poor dears, to stand in “stress positions… with their hands tied together over their heads, chained to the ceiling.”

As uncomfortable and humiliating as that might be for an extremist used to having the upper hand in most situations, the sleepless-in-Guantanamo/chained-to-the-ceiling routine is probably a discomfort that murdered Americans would have happily endured if given a choice between that and being crushed by millions of pounds of concrete and steel.

Still, Dianne Feinstein is very distressed that interrogators and guards employed “rough takedowns,” where a terrorist was hooded, stripped naked, and “dragged up and down a dirt hallway while being slapped and punched.”

Maybe über-tenderhearted Feinstein should spend a couple of hours with a fetus born alive in a botched abortion when, in the name of the kind of choice she and President Obama support, a helpless newborn is forced to endure the anguish of being denied oxygen, hydration, and warmth.

Quite frankly, instead of the liberal belief that enhanced interrogation is sadistic, Feinstein’s sentiment about “fac[ing] an ugly truth and say[ing] ‘never again’” would serve humanity a whole lot better if she were exposing the sadistic procedure called abortion.

Mrs. Feinstein also seemed to be disgusted by the notion that several detainees were led to believe “they would …leave in a coffin-shaped box.” Maybe someone should remind the senator that most of those who died on 9/11 did not have the luxury of being laid to rest in a coffin.  Instead, of the 2,800 victims, fewer than 300 whole bodies were recovered.  The other 2,500 were blown apart, incinerated, or pulverized.

Attempting to head off the bloodshed that is sure to follow the release of a report former Vice President Dick Cheney said was “full of crap,” as well as making an effort to soften the impending blowback, Feinstein predicted terrorists will “try to use [the report] to justify evil actions or to incite more violence.”

Come what may, I hope that Dianne Feinstein feels better about herself after confessing to the world that the CIA placed mass murderers in confined spaces with scary caterpillars.

Whether the sanctimonious senator feels vindicated or not matters little, because despite getting a reprieve from “rectal rehydration,” radical Islamic terrorists will continue to search for ways to smuggle a dirty bomb into an American city where, when it goes off, hundreds of thousands of people will die excruciating deaths.

In the end, the best America can hope for is that ISIS will be impressed by America’s commitment to treating terrorists humanely.  Then, as a reciprocal gesture toward the Senate Intelligence Committee, the next time Jihadi John beheads an American maybe he’ll ditch the rusty kitchen knife and switch to an ax.

TRUE BELIEVERS: Obamaholics, RINO-philes and Their False Gods

canute-300x180Originally posted at CLASH Daily

Kaling Wald truly believed that God was going to raise her husband Peter from the dead. The Canadian woman was so sure he’d be resurrected that she left Mr. Wald’s body to decay for six months.

The dead man’s wife held fast to the hope that after his long nap her husband would rise up, walk out of the bedroom, slide behind the wheel of the Jesus ministry-mobile and get back to feeding the homeless, preaching the Gospel, and producing evangelistic skits in the family’s backyard.

While the irreligious might snicker at such a belief, Peter’s family is just like Obama-is-God people, who should be referred to as Obamaholics. Obamaholics still believe that the president, who is actively destroying America, possesses the power to make the oceans recede and heal a sick and dying planet.

Remember when Barack Obama first emerged on the political scene? At the time, the electricity and excitement surrounding the Illinois senator’s potential to perform miracles seemed second only to the time when Scripture tells us Jesus whispered “Talitha cumi” into the ear of a dead girl, and took her by the hand as she rose from her deathbed.

To those on the left, post-G.W. Bush America was nothing more than a rotting corpse, a carcass they believed was in need of a touch from above. Unfortunately for us, the man that nearly half the nation chose to believe was divine was Barack Obama, to whom some diehards, even to this day, still attribute superhuman powers.

Much like Mrs. Wald, who didn’t report her husband’s death because she was “trusting God… [and] thought, ‘OK Lord, you know better’,” liberals, who generally by nature are “tainted and warped [in their] better judgment,” believed and continue to believe that Obama has the miracle-working ability of a god.

And this is not six months later; it’s six years later!

Try as Obama might to muster up a resurrection, there’s been nothing but death and destruction. And despite all the incessant hallowed-be-Obama’s-name hype, with each passing day, the body under the blanket of political spin grows more swollen and putrefied.

After six years of Obama suffocating, strangling, and stabbing his victim to death, the coast-to-coast decomposition has left America in a nearly unrecognizable state. The stench of decay permeates everything from the economy to our healthcare system.

As for Peter Wald, his body was found when the family was being evicted because of failure to pay the mortgage. Regrettably, for Obama disciples, now more than ever, as the nation continues to rot, true believers find themselves still worrying about paying their mortgages and filling their gas tanks.

But in fairness, liberals are not alone. There’s another group of religious types: the pitiful RINOs-will-save-us Republicans, or RINO-philes, who, just like Obamaholics, are also true believers.

RINO-philes are well aware that Barack Obama is powerless to raise the dead. Instead, this group puts their faith in the messianic abilities of right-leaning moderates who they believe will reignite what Obama has snuffed out. Their hope is that RINOs will breathe new life into a withered nation.

The problem is that RINOs-will-save-us Republicans have put their full faith and confidence in the care of a group of spineless politicians who reserve their energy for flipping over in tanning beds. Thus, judging from the establishment Republicans’ lack of will to oppose a renegade president, it’s highly doubtful that this sorry bunch will be resuscitating anything – let alone America.

So a devout Christian’s unwavering faith in a coming resurrection is not unlike the level of faith exhibited by liberals who believe that, in due time, thanks to Barack Obama, America will rise up even better and more progressive than her post-G.W. Bush self. Nor does it differ much from the gullible group who elected lily-livered RINOs, thinking that those who easily cave will do for America what Jesus did for Lazarus.

Superior Court Justice Marjoh Agro said a mouthful when she told Kaling Wald, “Your belief that your husband would resurrect is not an issue. This is not about your religious beliefs. It is about your safety, the safety of your children and the safety of the community at large.”

Likewise, regardless of how misled they are, Obama groupies and the RINOs-to-the-rescue crowd also have a right to their beliefs. But unfortunately for the rest of the country, their politics impact our children’s future and have proven to have a hazardous effect on the community at large.

Today, Kaling Wald has finally accepted the fact that Peter isn’t going to be driving the Jesus ministry-mobile ever again and is mourning the loss of her spouse. Still believing that God can resurrect the dead, the widow maintains that her faith has not been shaken. In fact, she said that the case of the decomposed hubby “has cast [her] more at the mercy of God, because He is the ultimate judge.”

Indeed He is.

But for those among us who know that Barack “Slayer” Obama and John “No Backbone” Boehner are not gods and therefore incapable of raising America up from the smoldering ash, we can learn from Kaling’s example – the future of America depends solely on the “mercy of God.”

Barack Obama: Mortal Flesh Like the Rest of Us

throatOriginally posted at American Thinker

Thanks to the president’s compassion toward anyone who’s not an American, nowadays the simple act of grabbing a grocery cart is akin to licking a tainted Petri dish.

Because of Obama coaxing an invasion by beckoning into our midst millions of illegal aliens, every American is now vulnerable to bacteria and viruses that we lack the immunity to fight. That’s why it’s fair to say that the president is purposely subjecting the nation’s citizens to unnecessary sickness, disease and death.

Let’s admit it: we the little people are essentially helpless.

What’s frustrating for those stranded as a tsunami of doom approaches is the realization that the man responsible for our impending demise is well protected from the maladies we mere mortals are being purposely exposed to.

No one thinks for one moment that Barack Obama will get the respiratory infection Enterovirus D-68, the polio-like germ imported from Latin America that has claimed the lives of about a dozen people, most of whom were small children and infants.

The president can mosey on down to the CDC and there’s never a fear that he’ll come down with hemorrhagic fever, or contract MDR- TB or Chagas, or any other exotic import he’s determined to expose the rest of America to.

As Barack Obama looks the other way and ignores the mayhem, Border Patrol agents warn that M-13 and violent Chinese gangs are among those busting the border. Nor does the president need to worry that one of his so called “Dreamers” will take a shot at him during a high-speed chase like Alexander Gallardo did in Raleigh, North Carolina when he attempted to kill a police officer.

Thanks to Obama’s foolish immigration policy, Americans have things like that, and plenty more, to worry about.

Meanwhile the man fomenting the atmosphere of dread has nothing to fear, because when Islamic barbarians, otherwise known as ISIS, whom some say have already infiltrated our border, eventually make a gory statement in an elementary school or a crowded mall, thank God, at least we know for sure that Obama’s daughters will be spared.

Nonetheless, exempt from the restrictions he’s inflicted on the rest of us via ObamaCare and free from the wait sick and dying veterans were forced to endure, recently the president was in need of emergency medical care.

For those of us gripped with Obama-imposed anxiety, it takes the president being popped in the lip and requiring twelve stitches, or being admitted to the hospital for a two-week old sore throat to remind us that all life is delicate, including Obama’s.

The 49th Psalm says that “man in his pomp will not endure; He is like the beasts that perish.” To the little guy, it may not feel like it, but experience has proven that no man endures, including pompous men with singed esophagi.

As we strain against Obama’s tightening grip around the nation’s throat, quite unexpectedly America finds out that the one who seemed impervious is not shielded after all, because he, like the rest of us, is frail and one day will perish too.

The president falling ill reminds us that position and power do not make one immune to sickness and death.

In other words, Obama may appear to be physically protected from the unwarranted peril and disease he’s exposing the rest of us to, but the truth is that Barack the Inflictor is also subject to the fragility and brevity of life.

In James 4:14 Jesus’s brother writes that like it or not, “no one knows what his or her life will be like tomorrow.” Take for instance our seemingly immortal president fundraising one day and the next day suffering through a fiber-optic endoscopy and CT scan.

It may not seem like it, but all of us, including dead ambassadors, innocents murdered by illegal aliens, those who have needlessly died of Third World diseases, Americans beheaded by ISIS, as well as the ostensibly impervious Obama, are all “just a vapor that appears for a little while and then vanishes away.”

Could it be that there’s a lesson here for both the oppressed and the oppressor?

Perhaps so, because for the record, acid reflux is when the stomach contents push back up into the esophagus, which causes symptoms such as heartburn and a sore throat.

Is it a coincidence that Barack Obama forces down America’s craw a philosophy and ideology the majority of us cannot stomach and he’s the one who ends up with reflux? After garroting the nation and causing our heart to burn and turning our voices hoarse from crying out in pain, is it somehow fitting that Obama is the one who ends up with a swollen esophagus and burning gullet?

So, rather than thinking up new ways to inflict misery upon the American people, while he heals, it might do the president good to meditate upon the fact that regardless of our station in life, whether president or peon, we are all but flesh, a momentary “wind that passes and does not return.”

As for those of us who feel powerless because our fleeting lives are daily impacted by a man with a raging case of acid reflux, it’s good to be reminded that in the end, the one who holds the power over life and death is God, not Barack Obama.

Coming to the Silver Screen: Shelley and Barry’s First Date

President Obama And First Lady Meet With Mothers To Discuss Health CareOriginally posted at American Thinker

When Harvard law student Barack took a summer job at Chicago’s Sidley Austin prestigious law firm, the world was unaware that history was being made. It was there where, according to her supervisors, hard-to-manage second-year associate Michelle LaVaughn Robinson, eager to change the world, was making a name for herself complaining about being treated as a second-year associate.

It was while tagging along behind Michelle, Barack’s advisor at the time, that the earth moved for our future president, and not only because the determination in Michelle’s stride caused the building’s rafters to shake.

After loving her from afar, with a lot of arm twisting and haranguing, Michelle finally agreed to lower herself and accept a date with the first-year law student. On that momentous day, the duo sauntered around the Southside of Chicago, providing the young love-struck community organizer with the ears Michelle admitted she thought at first were large, time to share with her his Saul Alinsky vision of the “the world as it is…[and]…the world as it should be.”

Barack’s affection for Marxist philosophy clearly swept the object of his affection right off her size-11 feet.

The date was a success because the lovers were married in 1992. Then in 2012, the site of the Obamas’ first kiss, which Obama said tasted like chocolate, outside a Baskin-Robbins ice cream shop in Chicago’s Hyde Park, was memorialized with a city plaque. Since then, ice cream of every flavor has occasionally been spotted on the front of both their shirts, as well as dried on the corners of both their lips.

Now, here we are, a mere twenty-something years later, and finally an indie film will recount the summer of 1989 when Barack enticed America’s future first lady to take stroll, enjoy the cultural sights at the Art Institute, and hold hands during Do the Right Thing, Spike Lee’s, aka Mookie’s, movie about sizzling summer days, pizza, and racial unrest.

So move over, Gone with the Wind. Titanic, take a hike, because Shelley and Barry’s steaming hot passion is about to make its way onto the silver screen. That’s right, the epic romance story Southside With You, due to begin filming in July of 2015, is poised to fly like cupid’s arrow straight into America’s hearts.

Southside With You originated in the fertile minds of producer Richard Tanne, who wrote the screenplay, and the fetching Get On Up actress Tika Sumpter. Producers Tracey Bing, Richard Tanne, and Columbia Pictures alumni Stephanie Allain inexplicably view the Obama romance as one of the “great love stories of our time.”

Sumpter and Tanne developed the script and will co-produce the flick. In fact, Tika is so committed to the project that instead of offering Whoopi Goldberg the leading role, she cast herself as the warm and always welcoming Michelle, which is sort of like actress Kerry Washington casting herself as Texas congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.

According to Tracey Bing, “Richard,” who hasn’t even found an actor to play Barack, “really captures the essence of that romantic connection between Barack and Michelle that is so evident in the way that they look at each other.”

Well! America certainly looks forward to witnessing those scenes. Hopefully, the movie will capture some of the more notable side-glances Michelle has shot Barack’s way over the years.

Take Dorothy Height and Nelson Mandela’s funeral, for instance. On the loving-glance-o-meter, those ‘look at each other’ moments between the president and first lady reduce Meryl Streep and Clint Eastwood’s longing gazes in The Bridges of Madison County to nothing more than pathetic pabulum for wannabe romantics.

Tracey Bing did add, “We are looking forward to finding the perfect Barack.” Well good luck with that, because it’s been six plus-years and even Michelle would probably agree that a “perfect Barack” is nowhere to be found.

Then again, if he’s not touring with Yo Gaba Gaba maybe D.J. Lance would be up for the job.

Nonetheless, if perchance the green-lit project should fall through, there’s always plenty of material for a movie chronicling the authenticity of the Clinton marriage. And with any luck, the currently hot, amply-sized actress/comedian Melissa McCarthy will be available to star as Hillary.

Are Native Americans Our European Ancestors?

three_young_native_american_menOriginally posted at American Thinker

Immediately following a massacre at the hands of a U.S. Army major who, before killing 13 American soldiers, was the first person to inject Islam into “workplace violence” by shouting “Allahu Akbar,” the president appeared at a Tribal Nations Conference hosted by the Department of Interior’s Bureau of Indian affairs. Before mentioning the tragic events at Ft. Hood, Obama apparently felt it was imperative to give a cheerful “shout-out” to “Congressional Medal of Honor winner” Dr. Joe Medicine Crow.

In 2009 the president delayed statements that condemn domestic terrorism to acknowledge a Native American; now, in 2014, Barack Obama has directed his comments to those who oppose his executive amnesty, citing ineligibility to protest the invasion if a protestor’s ancestry is not directly rooted in America.

Desperate to defend his push to “fundamentally transform” the nation against the will of the American people, many of whom are of European descent, Obama told a Chicago audience:

If you look at the history of immigration in this country, each successive wave there have been periods where the folks who were already here have said, ‘Well I don’t want those folks.’

With those words, the president sent a message to his critics that there was once a time when white people weren’t welcome in America either. That cheap shot was an attempt to rally support for amnesty by reminding those gathered in Chicago that when they arrived here Europeans also met with anti-immigrant sentiment.

The kicker is that he then added this caveat: “the only people who have the right to [object to immigration] are some Native Americans.”

By making such an absurd statement, Barack Obama expressed the opinion that the only ones who have a legitimate right to oppose an invasion by “those folks” are Native Americans, because they were in America first.

The president’s skewed logic is that those whose ancestors he believes conquered Native Americans have no right to object to being conquered.

In addition, Obama, who favors one race, identifies with the liberal tribe, and seems to loathe bitter Bible clingers, chided the audience by pointing out: “Sometimes we get attached to our particular tribe, our particular race, our particular religion, and then we start treating other folks differently[.]”

Yeah! And the one “treating other folks differently” would be you.

Different or not, what is plain is that in Obama’s opinion, the descendants of those who he thinks subjugated Native Americans should accept a modern-day Christopher Columbus named Barack Obama who, like the Columbus of old, is also “governing as he pleases.”

After all, according to Obama, Christian European colonizers oppressed the indigenous people, so six centuries later those with Christian European lineage had better not grumble.

For all intents and purposes, Obama conquering and transforming America may very well be the president’s version of Native American reparations. Executive amnesty could be Barack’s way of teaching the descendants of White Europeans what being occupied feels like.

One sure way to share the pain is by importing the Third-World diseases that are currently infecting and killing healthy Americans with things like Enterovirus D-68, MDR-TB, and Chagas. In a way, Barack is doing what many on the left accuse White European settlers of doing, which is to expose an uncontaminated population to diseases to which they have no immunity.

The problem with the logic of the traveler of 57 states (not counting Alaska and his highly dubious birth state of Hawaii) is that his type of vindictive compensation is rooted in historical fiction.

If a present-day American’s heritage includes a relative migrating to the U.S. from anywhere else in the world and said individual is disqualified from expressing an opinion on illegal immigration, then Native Americans should be disqualified too.

In addition to archeological evidence that claims humans were in North America thousands of years before Native Americans arrived, over the years genetic clues have indicated America’s first colonists migrated from Siberia. It is believed that the people Obama refers to as native, much like the illegal aliens who walk across the border into the U.S., actually walked across the ice from Russia to what is now called America.

More recently, scientists in Denmark extracted DNA from a juvenile skeleton from a Siberian site in Mal’ta, Russia near Lake Baikal that was found with miniature Venus sculptures similar to small figurines made by European hunter-gatherers.

Scientists now believe it’s quite possible, based on that and a newly discovered sequenced genome, that one-third of Native American genes come from west Eurasian people linked to the Middle East and Europe, not solely from East Asia as previously thought.

What science indicates is that unbeknownst to Barack Obama, the very people he’s using as a weapon to suppress criticism of his attempt to circumvent the Constitution were migrants too.

Worse yet, it could be that one-third of those Obama said are the only people who have the right to object to illegal immigration actually originated from the same part of the world as those Obama says have no right to complain: Europe.

So try as he might to justify his lawlessness by endeavoring to inflict guilt on Americans for having a heritage in countries other than America, the truth is that the supposedly native peoples Obama is politically exploiting are not native at all.

The crux of the issue is that the only individuals indigenous to one part of the world are those who originated in the “cradle of civilization.” Everyone else, including American Indians, migrated and then settled far from home.

If the president is maintaining that modern-day Americans have no right to complain because their ancestors trekked to the New World from somewhere else, then neither do Native Americans. And as nightmarish as it might be for Obama’s liberal fantasy, both modern-day illegals and Native Americans may actually possess the same DNA as the European New World explorers Barack Obama seeks to vilify.

Barack Obama: A Companion of Fools

193538_5_Originally posted at American Thinker

It seems that Barack Obama has a propensity to surround himself with some questionable friends. So, instead of trying in vain to slow the rising oceans and heal the planet, it might do the president some good to spend time in the Bible, contemplating verses like Proverbs 13:20, which says “Whoever walks with the wise becomes wise, but the companion of fools will suffer harm.”

Take for example one foolish companion the president walks with: the prominent gay rights activist Terrence P. Bean, 66, who has been indicted for allegedly sexually abusing a 15-year-old boy. At a 2009 Human Rights Campaign dinner, Mr. Obama called the alleged child molester a “great friend and supporter.”

As a matter of fact, Obama’s “great friend” Terrence has frequented the White House at least six times in the past couple of years. An ardent and influential supporter of many prominent Democrats, in addition to visiting 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Bean has also been a guest of the president on Air Force One flying around at $181K an hour.

It’s been said by former Oregon governor Barbara Roberts about Terrence Bean that “He has the president’s ear.” Word is that Mr. Bean was even instrumental in changing the president’s mind on same-sex marriage. Perhaps Terry is the one who fed Obama that “no matter who you love” line the president manages to inject into every speech.

In a 2012 interview with Proud Queer Monthly magazine, Mr. Bean said that Mr. Obama’s repeal of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” was one of his proudest moments. And according to Bean, “Another standout moment was the election of Barack Obama” because, according to the indicted sex offender, he “knew from the beginning what an important advocate [Obama] would be for [the LGBT] community.”

So chummy were these two that at a 2012 re-election fundraiser in Portland, Mr. Obama publicly thanked and acknowledged Bean for arranging the event. That same year, Bean told PQ Monthly how Mr. Obama’s re-election was vital:

I’d like to see a Supreme Court with a solid majority of progressives. Over the next few years, many LGBT cases will be heard at the highest level and it’s critical that President Obama is reelected so he can nominate judges who will treat our community’s concerns fairly and with an open mind.

Sorry, but for the average citizen concerned about the direction of the country, it’s a tad disturbing to realize that an alleged child molester has inserted himself so far into the political process that when he’s not sodomizing boys or filming himself having sex with young gay men, he’s influencing presidential Supreme Court picks.

Yet all this controversy is not surprising, because it’s fairly well known that Barack Obama has other gay friends, some of whom also happen to like introducing young people to dubious sexual activities.

Remember Kevin Jennings, Lambda Literary Award winner, gay activist, and founder of GLSEN, the LGBT organization that familiarizes public school children as young as kindergarteners with the homosexual lifestyle?

Obama appointed Jennings to the esteemed position of Assistant Deputy Secretary for the Office of Safe and Drug-Free Schools at the U.S. Department of Education from 2009-11. In other words, Barack Obama felt comfortable assigning someone the job of overseeing our schoolchildren’s safety who promotes books like “Passages of Pride,” wherein the author muses about a 15-year-old boy’s relationship with a grown man.

That’s why it’s no surprise that Mr. Bean, who raised more than a half-million dollars in 2012 to re-elect Obama, is more than welcome at the White House, where he meets with people like the first lady and Obama’s political advisor David Simas.

Ironically, on Mr. Bean’s May 30th visit with Mr. Obama, the president was also hosting a “My Brother’s Keeper” task force meeting. Hopefully the “Brother’s Keeper” activities didn’t include Mr. Bean “keeping,” so to speak, a minority boy looking for a mentor in an older gentleman eager to help him succeed in both school and life.

Either way, an article in Portland’s Willamette Week noted that when not doling out advice to the president, Mr. Bean was allegedly secretly filming sexual encounters with up to six individuals, including his 25-year-old ex-lover Kiah Lawson.

The newspaper said that when Mr. Lawson learned that Mr. Bean had secretly taped him, he asked for money. Bean responded by paying his young lover a $1,600 monthly stipend and taking him to prestigious events, including one at the White House where the star of some of Terrence Bean’s sex tapes got to meet the president.

Lawson’s mother, Tim Nouanemany, maintains that Kiah, who, like Bean, was also charged with two counts of third-degree sodomy and one count of third-degree sex abuse, never had contact with the 15-year-old victim. According to Nouanemany, Terry Bean arranged the encounter, plied her son with alcohol and Viagra, and after “grooming” Kiah, used him to “get young kids.”

And so, on behalf of political correctness and thanks to a stunning lack of wisdom, discernment, and plain common sense, Barack Obama has once again made himself a companion of fools. Unfortunately, in so doing the President of the United States has also jeopardized his own reputation and mortified those he’s supposed to be leading.

FERGUSON SOLUTION? Maybe Obama Should Issue an Executive Indictment

barack-ob-300x180Originally posted at Clash Daily

The “no true bill” Ferguson grand jury decision is in, and the looting has begun. Rest assured that either way there would have been looting with this bunch. If Darren Wilson had been indicted there would have been celebratory looting, but since prosecutor Bob McCullough announced no charges, instead there’s outrage looting.

Obviously, outrage looting is more fun.

After the decision was announced, Al “Tawana Brawley” Sharpton said he is heading to Ferguson because, according to the guy who gives Aqua Net a bad name, the grand jury decision not to indict is an “absolute blow” to the race-baiting faux civil rights leader who, rather than keep Martin Luther King Jr.’s dream alive, works tirelessly to keep hate alive.

Sharpton said that he had no confidence in McCullough and would have preferred a federal investigation where likeminded race-baiters overseen by the new attorney general and Barack Obama could Loretta-Lynch Officer Darren Wilson by offering him up as a blonde, blue-eyed sacrificial lamb.

According to the evidence, Michael Brown robbed a convenience store and, according to eyewitnesses, tussled with Wilson, attempting to get the officer’s gun while attacking him in his police car. After being shot in the hand in the struggle, Brown started to run away and then turned around and charged Officer Wilson like a football player with his head down.

Evidently, facts and eyewitness accounts don’t seem to matter to race-hustlers like Sharpton.

Then there’s Barack Obama, who delivered a sober nine-minute plea for calm. The president called for a “long-term solution” to the tensions between inner city youth and white police officers.

What Obama did not mention during his remarks was the long-term solution for all the innocent children who have died unnecessarily from the Enterovirus D-68 that Obama himself is responsible for bringing here. Nor did he mention how many illegal aliens – whom he never plans to prosecute – have shot and killed black teenage boys and girls, we know for certain were innocent.

Instead, based on the glum expression on the face of the man who in the past had already accused a white police officer of “acting stupidly,” Obama looked as if he was thinking “this could have been my [hoodie-wearing] son” who died.

However, despite being clearly dismayed and majorly peeved, the president did call for respect for the rule of law. The problem is that this is obviously another version of “do as I say, not as I do” because as he’s just recently proven, Obama, above all, has zero respect for the rule of law.

In fact, it’s quite possible that the Ferguson, Missouri plunderers learned how to burn down and demolish from observing Barack Obama’s low level of respect for the U.S. Constitution.

Yet to the president’s credit was his acknowledgment that “communities of color have higher crime rates,” which inadvertently cleared up the question as to why there is so much lawlessness in the community of color where he lives: the White House.

Meanwhile, back in Ferguson, Mike Brown’s defenders are about the business of attempting to uphold the teen’s stellar reputation and clear his name by setting fires to businesses, torching cars, shooting off guns, closing down the St. Louis airport, and randomly attacking, shooting, and throwing rocks at news reporters.

In fact, things have gotten so out of hand that a 26-year-old woman named Becca Campbell, fearful of being injured during the unrest, accidentally shot herself in the head with a gun she purchased for self-defense. Becca was jokingly waving the gun around, saying “Ready for Ferguson” when the car she was riding in was rear-ended. The gun went off and Becca died.

The only thing missing from the scene is the always-serious and reliably melodramatic Geraldo Rivera speaking out on behalf of racial calm.

Why hasn’t Geraldo, dressed in riot gear, been lowered onto a street strung with “Season’s Greetings” Christmas lights from a hovering helicopter? Then, like a brave soldier, he could commiserate with the rioters and choke back emotion while gagging on tear gas and ducking airborne boulders.

Geraldo or no Geraldo, the pillagers have announced that they will loot as many stores and businesses as necessary to get justice, because everyone knows that justice for a man who died while attacking a cop after just having stolen some cigarillos is done by gathering up as much cheap merchandise as one can from the local dollar outlet.

In the interim, as the convenience store that Michael Brown robbed on the day he died is being ravaged in his memory, there is a way to stop all the madness. Because Michael Brown is deceased, there cannot be a Henry Louis Gates/Officer Crowley-style beer summit at the White House, so Barack Obama needs to be a little more creative. One way would be for the president to formally declare that hence forth and in perpetuity, just like illegal aliens are innocent because they’re illegal, regardless of what he did, Michael Brown was innocent because he was black.

Then our historic first black president can put his head together with his close advisor Al Sharpton (after all, great minds think alike) and announce the first-ever Executive Indictment. The indictment can then call for the immediate arrest of Officer Darren Wilson following a “no justice no peace”-style federal investigation and trial that will surely find the Ferguson police officer guilty of a murder he didn’t commit.

Obama on ‘Gang-Bangers,’ Hoodies, and Illegals Emptying Bedpans

GangwayOriginally posted at American Thinker

It’s classic Cloward-Piven strategy.  First you foment a crisis, and then you rush in with a left-wing cure.  That is exactly what the president did during an interview on ABC’s This Week with George Stephanopoulos, who is not to be confused with Sesame Street’s Mr. Snuffleupagus.

That’s right – Barack Obama, who, when it comes to himself, regularly contravenes the rules and regulations, is now suddenly an expert on how law enforcement should comport themselves in tense situations.

According to the president, minority community sensitivity is needed for police officers, who Obama has said in the past can “act stupidly.” The president feels the goal should be to teach law enforcement how to differentiate between a gang-banger and an innocent child, who, if wearing a hoodie, could be Obama’s son.

What the president’s counsel did not include was advice on how to deal with gang-bangers wearing hoodies or innocent children foolishly emulating gang-bangers.

Nonetheless, Obama did tell a totally transfixed George:

… [t]hey want to make sure the police are trained so they can distinguish between a gang banger and a kid who just happens to be wearing a hoodie, but otherwise is a good kid and not doing anything wrong.

The president should be familiar with that type of mix-up. In 2008 and 2012, thanks to his emitting a “new car smell,” candidate Obama benefited because Americans were not trained to distinguish between a qualified candidate and a Chicago community organizer/socialist rabble-rouser who decided being black was the only criterion needed to run for president.

Now, just a few weeks after America expressed views Obama ignored when he lawlessly and unilaterally extended executive amnesty to those who defy the rule of law, he told George Stephanopoulos, “You know, this is a country that allows everybody to express their views. But using any event as an excuse for violence is contrary to rule of law and contrary to who we are.”

It sure would have been nice if George had asked the president, who just the other day said that “[m]ass deportation would be both impossible and contrary to our character,” how the rule of law reflects who we are in some circumstances, but in others, following the rule of law contradicts our character?

After a break, Obama came back to discuss why lawless behavior is acceptable when he deems it necessary. Stephanopoulos asked the president how he justified exercising “administrative flexibility” when he circumvented Congress to grant amnesty to 5,000,000 illegal aliens.

First the president denied being emperor; then he explained that his job is to execute the laws he doesn’t keep, and then applied the gang-banger/hoodie argument to immigration when he told George that America has to:

…[p]rioritize felons, criminals, recent arrivals, folks who are coming right at the border and acknowledge that if somebody’s been here for over 5 years, they may have an American child or a legal permanent resident child[.]

In other words, the president was sort of saying that when it comes to immigration, Americans have to put the law aside and be able to “distinguish between” gang-banging illegal ISIS terrorists, MS-13 gang members, pedophiles, murderers, and rapists and hoodie-wearing unaccompanied minors who just happen to be infected with Enterovirus D-68, but otherwise are good kids and “not doing anything wrong.”

Then, after citing prosecutorial discretion as the reason he did what he erroneously thinks Democrat and Republican presidents have done before with bipartisan Congressional approval, the president went on to give a laundry list of things that we have to do but will never do nor be able to enforce.

Things like securing the border, deporting criminals similar to the ones the Obama administration has already released, and believing that illegals will willingly submit to criminal background checks and U.S. tax law.

Then, point guard Stephanopoulos provided an opportunity for Obama to block any argument that might suggest that his so-called prosecutorial discretion on immigration could open the door for future presidents to target Democrat favorites like abortion and taxes.

According to Barack Obama, it’s different when it comes to taxes because, he says, “The vast majority of folks understand that they need to pay taxes. And when we conduct an audit, for example, we are selecting those folks who are most likely to be cheating.”

Wait! Sneaking over the border isn’t dishonest? And when he says “we,” does he mean himself and Lois Lerner auditing conservatives, Tea Party activists, and right-wing media types?

Either way, apparently for Obama it’s not the same when illegals flagrantly break the law as it is for American citizens whom Obama wants to abuse with Chicago-style intimidation.

Clearly, the president feels his time is better spent “going after” millions and millions of Americans who disagree with him politically than it is pursuing illegals who Obama believes “we’re taking advantage of … as they mow lawns or clean out bedpans.”

When it comes to tax law, Obama, who’s proven to be the lawless one and who doesn’t expect bed-making, fruit-picking, lawn-mowing, bed-pan-emptying illegals to follow the law either, said that although not every person is audited, “we,” (as in he) “still expect that people are going to go ahead and follow the law.”

So there you have it. According to Barack Obama, black teenage boys in hoodies are off-limits to police officers. Similarly, when it comes to illegal aliens, the hoodie test should also be applied, lest those daring to suggest deportation as an option end up being legally audited by a president who doesn’t respect the law.

Barack Obama Exalts Wading across the Rio Grande

images (2)Originally posted at American Thinker

Barack Obama’s pre-Thanksgiving discourse on immigration gave five million people, including the president’s thrice-deported Uncle Omar, frequenter of Framingham’s Chicken Bone Saloon, something to be thankful for.

Besides instigating a constitutional crisis, Obama’s dictatorial decree justified the unjustifiable by doing things like leaving out explicatory facts.

Take for instance the statement that “our tradition of welcoming immigrants … has given us a tremendous advantage over other nations. … But today, our immigration system is broken – and everybody knows it.”

What Obama conveniently forgot to mention was that for the greater part of 200 years, immigrants entered America with deference and respect for America’s laws.  For immigrants eager to work, this nation was never viewed as a “golden ticket” promising preferential treatment and entitlements.

Furthermore, “everybody knows” that our so-called “broken immigration system” is really politics morphing into an opportunity that benefits lawlessness.

Even so, the president did weakly denounce the prejudicial practice of allowing illegals to cut the line.  But then he quickly shifted the focus to the sad plight of those who busted through the nation’s border like hungry vagrants crashing an all-you-can-eat buffet.

Obama also took the time to remind America that he’s always been “committed to fixing this broken immigration system.”  Unfortunately, when Barack Obama threatens to fix something – such as the economy, joblessness, or health care – Americans had best take heed.

After all, border agents have been murdered, 75 percent of the most wanted criminals in Los Angeles, Phoenix, and Albuquerque are illegal, and disease, terrorism, and anti-American sentiment have crossed the border in droves.  Yet like a spaced-out hippie on LSD, Obama bragged that “we have more agents and technology deployed to secure our southern border than at any time in our history.”

Careful not to omit the “brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border,” Obama claimed that the number is actually “lower than it’s been in nearly two years. … Those are the facts.”

Sure, they’re Grubama facts.

Anyway, Obama didn’t squander the opportunity to blame Republicans for a “broken system” that he refuses to enforce and prefers broken.

Lest anyone doubt it, Barack “I won” Obama insisted that he has the “legal authority to take as President – the same kinds of actions taken by Democratic and Republican presidents before [him],” which he thinks “will help make our immigration system more fair and more just.”

“More fair and just” for whom exactly?

Holding his nose, Barack Obama spoke of Reagan and G.W. Bush, the latter of whom, for the first time in Mr. Obama’s adult life, wasn’t blamed, but was instead exploited.

Obama promised to “deal responsibly with … millions of undocumented immigrants who already live in our country,” such as ISIS terrorists, gang members, murderers, rapists, and pedophiles, as well as those spreading contagious diseases.

The president also stressed that America’s laws are rooted in a document that everyone knows he, as its defender, considers “fundamentally flawed.”

To reassure America that the administration that released onto America’s streets 36,000 illegal-immigrant criminals in 2013 is going to focus “enforcement resources” on “Felons, not families. Criminals, not children… [and] Gang members, not … mom[s],” Obama employed alliteration.

Then the guy who’s never “straight” with anyone said, “[L]et’s be honest – tracking down, rounding up, and deporting millions of people isn’t realistic. Anyone who suggests otherwise isn’t being straight with you.”

But if five million people can’t be tracked down, how are work permits and entitlements going to be distributed?

Either way, sort of like believing that criminals will hand over illegal guns, Barack Obama insisted that lawbreakers who came to America fraudulently will “come out of the shadows” and willingly “submit to a criminal background check.”

Nonetheless, except for the “pass a bill” line, the funniest line in Obama’s whole speech was when he said that he’s going to fix our broken immigration system, and then said that fix “does not apply to anyone who might come to America illegally in the future.”

Then, sounding like enforcing the law is contrary to his character, the president reminded America that “[m]ass deportation would be both impossible and contrary to our character.”

Clearly, in Obama’s morally relativistic world, he believes that if illegals “work hard … support their families … [and] … worship at our churches,” this somehow justifies a president discounting the oath he took to defend the U.S. Constitution.

Still, tough-talking Obama took the time to warn future Death Train travelers that “[i]f [they] plan to enter the U.S. illegally, [their] chances of getting caught and sent back … went up” – sure, from minus zero all the way to zero.

Then the owner of a spanking-new birth certificate signed by Dr. Ukulele, Obama, favored son of Kenya and Moneygall, restated his eligibility to be president by saying that “[m]illions of us, myself included, go back generations in this country, with ancestors who put in the painstaking work to become citizens.”

Obama expressed the opinion that “immigrants are a net plus for our economy,” which is a sentiment the families of Brandon Mendoza and Drew Rosenberg, two of many thousands killed by illegal immigrants, might disagree with.

Oops!  Then the president left out manicurists, landscapers, bus boys, and produce handlers by saying it’s hypocritical to not give amnesty to illegal fruit-pickers and bed-makers.

Speaking of hypocrisy, America’s melodramatic president who supports ripping 3,000-4,000 unborn babies from mothers’ wombs every day asked, “Are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms?”

And by implying that immigrants legally crossing the Atlantic or the Pacific are similar to illegals wading across the Rio Grande, Obama injected moral equivalency into the debate.

Moving right along, and right before sharing a tale of a poor unfortunate from Mexico named Astrid Silva, yet again Obama cited Scripture out of context.

Scripture was an attempt to convince Americans to support an executive order that half the country rejects.  That’s also why Obama mentioned Astrid’s crucifix, doll, frilly dress, poor English skills, domestic-worker parents, and her fear of being outed as an illegal.

Funny how Barack Obama mentioned Astrid but ignored those who died as a result of the recent wave of illegal unaccompanied minors from Central America who, with Obama’s knowledge, carried with them the deadly Enterovirus D-68.

Winding down his defense for issuing an unconstitutional edict, Sovereign Ruler Barack Obama proclaimed that “[w]hat makes us Americans is our shared commitment to an ideal – that all of us are created equal, and all of us have the chance to make of our lives what we will.”

No, Mr. Obama!  What makes us Americans is our shared commitment to a founding document and unifying philosophy that, by going it alone on immigration, you clearly reject.
