Obama: ‘ A supporter suggests I proclaim a State of Emergency”

Did a supporter suggest Obama  proclaim a State of Emergency or was it Valerie Jarrett to have his way? Or was it a stream of consciousness running through his head? At least not for now Mr.President?

“I was in a meeting earlier today and somebody asked, you know, Mr. President, what can you do, these folks, they just — all they do is just oppose whatever you propose even if they used to be for it, now they’re against it; if you said the sky was blue, they’d say it was green; they deny the facts, they don’t have any ideas for growing the economy or helping the middle class — maybe you just need to announce a state of emergency. I said, well, now, I’m not going to do that, that’s not how the Constitution works.”

In 2014, President Obama has made much of his pen-and-a-phone strategy to accomplish his goals in the face of what he calls an “unprecedented pattern of obstruction” from Republicans in Congress. Apparently the president’s supporters are on board with the idea of unilateral executive action. At a meeting last Friday, a supporter of the president asked about the possibility of “a state of emergency.” The president relayed the story to another groups of supporters at a Democratic National Committee event later in the day at a private residence in Purchase, New York.

Of course, “how the Constitution works” is at the heart of the dispute between the president and Republicans in the House who recently voted to move forward with a lawsuit against the president for overstepping his constitutional authority. Interestingly, regardless of how seriously President Obama took his supporter’s question, he went on to tell his audience “there’s actually a solution to this that our Founders envisioned.” Ed: Of course we know he prefers the pen and phone.

Candidate remarks that are most remarkable!

Here is something on the lighter side for a Saturday. A couple of candidate’s remarks and ads that, well, are interesting to say the least. Here we go.

The Montana Senate race has been perhaps the most interesting contest thus far in the 2014 Senate election cycle. Original nominee, and sitting interim Senator, John Walsh was busted for plagiarism on a 14 page (!) Master’s thesis*. Sensing that this might be a liability on the campaign trail, he was replaced with single term Montana State Representative Amanda Curtis. She’s already come under fire for some rather unfortunate statements from her days as a Blogger.

There are a lot of things Ms. Curtis doesn’t seem to know, such as her positions on major issues.  From a CNN profile:  “When asked her position on the situation in Iraq, Curtis told CNN, ‘Give me a little more time.’ On the border crisis, ‘I’ll need more time, you know only 11 days ago I was painting my storm windows.’”  What she does know is that she’s against “the one percent” and hates Paul Ryan’s budget.

…she’s the kind of Leftist who has no problem with Revolutionary Socialism, even if it means roughing a few people up and destroying some property along the way, and at one point, her Facebook profile photo was of Elizabeth Gurley Flynn, the head of the Communist Party USA and recipient of a state funeral from the Soviet Union.

In case you haven’t caught this one from Amanda, I will throw it in as well. We might just catch this Senate seat!

I have added A Day at the Races to my blog located at the upper right hand corner called Looking Ahead 2014. They carry posts on some of the little covered races as well as some of the major ones. I caught this one from them. Wander over for the full read.

Out of Africa, Into Arkansas

About Ebola: it’s not just Republicans playing that card.

In Arkansas’ increasingly contentious Senate race, Democratic incumbent Pryor’s campaign is out with a new tv spot tying his Republican challenger, Rep. Tom Cotton, to the West African scourge.

Pryor’s not accusing Cotton of carrying the disease, per se. Actually, it’s more like being an enabler — for being one of 29 House members in January 2013 to vote against HR 307, aka “The Pandemic And All-Hazards Preparedness Reauthorization Act” (actually Cotton voted in favor of final passage of the bill).

The Cotton campaign’s response: “Senator Pryor’s desperation is comical. In Senator Pryor’s world, he doesn’t have to take responsibility for rubber-stamping the Obama agenda over 90% of the time, but wants Arkansans to believe Tom Cotton is responsible for everything from Ebola to crabgrass and male-pattern baldness.”

Makes you wonder when and where we’ll hit bottom in this election cycle.

Here’s Pryor’s ad (no surgical mask required to watch it):

Meet the Democrats Senate candidate replacement in Montana!

How many times were we as Tea Party folks tarred and feathered for our “poor choices” in candidates these last elections, especially in 2012? If anyone thought that the dud candidate who might have been a “witch” candidate from Delaware was a bust, try this one. Something for a feel good Friday. This is in Montana of all places.

Via WFB

Montana Democrats are banking on a long-shot liberal Senate candidate to replace the disgraced John Walsh, but their choice might be too radical even for the increasingly extreme party.

Democrats are hoping that Montana state representative Amanda Curtis will be the next Elizabeth Warren: an outspoken and unapologetic liberal who can fire up the base and raise big bucks from like-minded benefactors.

A self-described “punktuator” who has been seen sporting a mohawk and studded denim jacket with the iconic anarchist “A,” Curtis is certainly distinct from most Montana politicians.

Sen. Jon Tester (D., Mont.), the state’s incumbent senator, is the upper chamber’s only active farmer. Curtis’ Republican opponent, Steve Daines, is a successful businessman. Walsh is a career Army officer.

Curtis, by contrast, is a teacher and an activist. She is an outspoken supporter of organized labor, and has endorsed some of its most radical historical leaders.

In 2008, Curtis penned two articles for the monthly newspaper of the Industrial Workers of the World, a far-left labor group.

One of the pieces, which reported on IWW recruiting activities at a Montana folk music festival, quoted “IWW member Kevin Curtis,” who is Ms. Curtis’ husband (that fact was not disclosed in the article).

Mr. Curtis is the Butte delegate for IWW’s Montana affiliate, the Two Rivers General Membership Branch.

According to that group’s website, it is “working to organize the people of Montana into the One Big Union to end wage slavery and eventually end the capitalist system.”

Ferguson Officer Suffered “Orbital Blowout Fracture to Eye Socket” During Mike Brown Attack UPDATE!

While the calls for the lynching of Police Officer Darren Wilson continue without concern for the truth of the matter, this little part of the story slowly comes out. Apparently  Michael Brown was not rising to Sainthood as has been portrayed by the unrelenting media and Governor of the great state of Missouri.

UPDATE: If this is true, a real game changer.

Via local radio station 100.7:

Remember, you saw it and heard it here first. We have heard (from a VERY connected national media source) that Ferguson officer Darren Wilson will be cleared in the shooting of Michael Brown. The key: Dorian Johnson has now admitted that Michael Brown attacked Officer Wilson and attempted to take his gun. OFFICER WILSON WILL NOT BE CHARGED! This is scary. When this news is made official, we all have reason to be concerned about the reaction.

The Gateway Pundit can now confirm from two local St. Louis sources that police Officer Darren Wilson suffered facial fractures during his confrontation with deceased 18 year-old Michael Brown. Officer Wilson clearly feared for his life during the incident that led to the shooting death of Brown. This was after Michael Brown and his accomplice Dorian Johnson robbed a local Ferguson convenience store.

Local St. Louis sources said Wilson suffered an “orbital blowout fracture to the eye socket.” This comes from a source within the Prosecuting Attorney’s office and confirmed by the St. Louis County Police.

A blowout fracture is a fracture of one or more of the bones surrounding the eye and is commonly referred to as an orbital floor fracture. (AAPOS)

This comes after St. Louis Post-Dispatch reporter tweeted out last night that a dozen local witnesses confirmed Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson’s version of the Brown shooting story.

Will the Media remain a friend of Obama after they jail a NY Times reporter?

We shall see where this leads.  Will the press remain a loyalist to Obama? The Internet bloggers are next on his list. One to pay attention to. Obama has not let up on whistle blowers, the press is next? After spying on them? Now lock them up? Every totalitarian regime must get the media to toe the line.

Via Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama is no friend of press freedom, says a New York Times reporter who may be sent to jail for refusing to reveal a source.

“A lot of people still think this is some kind of game or signal or spin,” reporter James Risen told his own paper in a profile about his plight published Saturday. “They don’t want to believe that Obama wants to crack down on the press and whistle-blowers. But he does. He’s the greatest enemy to press freedom in a generation.”

Risen’s troubles stem from the 2006 publication of his book “State of War,” which included classified information about a failed CIA plot against Iran’s nuclear program. In 2008, George W. Bush’s Department of Justice subpoenaed Risen to reveal the source of the classified information. Citing his role as a journalist, Risen refused to comply, fighting the subpoena until it expired in 2009.

Progressive Noam Chomsky: ‘Sarah Palin was right’

Just who is Noam Chomsky? Another Jew who is filled with animus toward Israel. Another classic anti-American who leaves one wondering when if ever we will we have another McCarthy hearing to try to rid our country this time of the desert loving Muslims. This time he surprises us with his take on Sarah Palin. My, Noam never ceases to amaze.

Here is just a flavor of his point of view. From Democracy Now

Hideous. Sadistic. Vicious. Murderous. That is how Noam Chomsky describes Israel’s 29-day offensive in Gaza that killed nearly 1,900 people and left almost 10,000 people injured. Chomsky has written extensively about the Israel/Palestine conflict for decades.

Then, Chomsky: “The Business Elites … Are Instinctive Marxists

Is it Daytime or Nighttime in America?

A reminder of where we were once upon a time. Ronald Reagan, always optimistic  and hopeful. Then Mark Levin’s take on the ad with an Obama spin. “It’s nighttime in America”. One has to wonder why Obama even ran for office in 2012 as he appears so disinterested.

It’s Nighttime in America

 

MARK LEVIN: “It’s nighttime in America. Just think where we were four short years ago. Today, we have 15% actual unemployment, foreclosures are at a historic high, gasoline is 70% higher than before and the debt is over $15 trillion. It’s nighttime in America. Today, Americans are divided race, class warfare replaces capitalism and the Constitution is all but ignored. It’s nighttime in America.”
