Obama to end school choice program while ‘we need to make sure ‘all children’ get a chance at a great education’

The hypocrisy reaches a new high this week. While few would disagree that education is the ticket to getting out of poverty and Baltimore for that matter, Obama tries again to end the school choice program in D.C. This from the so-called Black President. Here we go:

After having presented a budget to Congress that would phase out a school-choice program that allows a limited number of children to escape Washington, D.C.’s public schools, President Barack Obama delivered a weekly address today that said all Americans have a responsibility to make sure all children—not just their own—get a great education.

(Obama’s two daughters go to Sidwell Friends, one of the most expensive private schools in Washington, D.C.)

“All of us have a responsibility to not only make sure our own children have pathways to success but that all children do,” Obama said, while sitting in a public library in the Anacostia neighborhood of D.C. “And a great education is the ticket to a better life like never before.

“The Obama administration has tried for years to sunset the program, and the president’s fiscal 2013 budget request zeroed out funding for the program, though the proposal was never carried out,” Education Week reported last month.

“The fiscal 2016 budget request includes $43.2 million, down from $45 million last year, and $3.2 million of that must be used to carry out an evaluation of the program,” reported Education Week. “In addition, the proposal specifically states that the money will be made available until it’s all used up, an attempt to sunset the program once again and block new enrollees.”

Obama bashes United States while in Panama ‘Dark Chapters in our History’

Precious little was reported even by Conservative bloggers regarding Obama’s continued attacks on our Nation’s history while in Panama. I could only find one clip but this was not the worst of it. His long diatribe of over an hour was filled with negative comments. This in front of many who should be accused of war crimes. The Castros are smiling. So put this down as a post just for the record. Here we go:

Obama has a long history of bashing America while traveling outside of the country. In January he trashed racist America while in India. He gave front row seats to the Muslim Brotherhood when he trashed America in Cairo.

I am a student of history so I tend to actually be familiar with many of these episodes that have been mentioned. I am the first one to acknowledge that America’s application to concern around human rights has not always been consistent. And, I’m certainly mindful that there are dark chapters in our own history in which we have not always observed the principles and ideals upon which the country was founded. Just a few weeks ago I was in Selma, Alabama celebrating the 50th anniversary of a march across a bridge that resulted in horrific violence and the reason I was there and the reason it was a celebration is because it was a triumph of human spirit in which ordinary people without resort to violence were able to overcome systematic segregation. There voices were heard and our country changed. America never makes a claim about being perfect, we do make a claim about being open to change.”

Obama bashes Christians at prayer breakfast.

Unfortunately Obama can’t get off his contempt for Christians. We won’t get into his feelings about the Jews. But then anyone who disagrees with Obama clearly finds themselves on his radar for further correction viz a viz the IRS for one. As far as the crusades, he might just want to review history on that one.

Barack Obama spoke at the annual Easter Prayer Breakfast in the White House. He bashed Christians. No mention of the slaughter that is going on. Anyone really belive he is a Christian?

“On Easter I do reflect on the fact that as a Christian I am supposed to love. And, I have to say that sometimes when I listen to less than loving expressions by Christians, I get concerned. But that’s a topic for another day. (laughter) Where there is injustice, I was about to veer off.”

Here is his statement from an earlier Prayer breakfast.

Obama refuses to meet with NATO head

One can only wonder at the absurd behavior of Obama. Why in the world would he not meet with these folks? NATO, the last stand when the Russian bear rises again, and he is rising. One gets the feeling is that he really doesn’t want to be bothered. Is it just that simple? Or has he lost his wheels. Here we go:

It is hard for me to believe that the president of the United States has not found the time to meet with the current secretary general of NATO given the magnitude of what this implies, and the responsibilities of his office,” Volker said. President Barack Obama has yet to meet with the new head of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and won’t see Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg this week, even though he is in Washington for three days.  Stoltenberg’s office requested a meeting with Obama well in advance of the visit, but never heard anything from the White House, two sources close to the NATO chief told me.

The leaders of almost all the other 28 NATO member countries have made time for Stoltenberg since he took over the world’s largest military alliance in October. Stoltenberg, twice the prime minister of Norway, met Monday with Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper in Ottawa to discuss the threat of the Islamic State and the crisis in Ukraine, two issues near the top of Obama’s agenda.

Kurt Volker, who served as the U.S. permanent representative to NATO under both President George W. Bush and Obama, said the president broke a long tradition.  “The Bush administration held a firm line that if the NATO secretary general came to town, he would be seen by the president … so as not to diminish his stature or authority,” he told me.

America’s commitment to defend its NATO allies is its biggest treaty obligation, said Volker, adding that European security is at its most perilous moment since the Cold War. Russia has moved troops and weapons into eastern Ukraine, annexed Crimea, placed nuclear-capable missiles in striking distance of NATO allies, flown strategic-bomber mock runs in the North Atlantic, practiced attack approaches on the U.K. and Sweden, and this week threatened to aim nuclear missiles at Denmark’s warships.

Bowe Bergdahl deserted, pervert father stalks twins

No one is covering this little factor, so I will re-post an earlier story.

So we hear that Bowe Bergdahl will be charged with desertion. The fruit doesn’t fall far from the tree. While Obama pranced about praising the poor suffering family, the press never reported that the father was a pervert. No, we had to believe that the embracement of this deserter was more important than those who may have died or risked their lives trying to retrieve this rascal. So lets take a look at Dad. First:

Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, who was released by the Taliban last year in exchange for five prisoners, is being charged with desertion, retired Lt. Col. Tony Schaffer told Bill O’Reilly on “The O’Reilly Factor” Monday.Read more: Washington Times

One weird family, this Bergdahl family.  A little reported story regarding dear old dad Bob Bergdahl, father of Bowe Bergdahl.  The original police reports are out there for confirmation. About Pops.

article-0-1E60FB9300000578-898_634x697

The father of embattled POW Bowe Bergdahl, who landed on US soil,, waged a sinister campaign of stalking and harassment against pretty twin sisters – even stealing a gnome from their garden and peaking at them in the shower, the sisters claim in shocking police reports.

Lacey and Allie Hillman, 31-year-old twin sisters from Hailey, Idaho, went to police after a series of harassing incidents involving Robert (Bob) Bergdahl in 2011
They claim that Bergdahl, a UPS driver, drove by their home ‘several times a day’ even though he had nothing to pick up or deliver and left ‘creepy’ notes
Allie claims that he once banged on her door and accused her of cheating on him, saying ‘What are you two-timing me b****,’ even though they never dated or were even friends

The sisters claim Bergdahl took a small gnome from their garden and later approached Lacey to ask her if ‘something was missing’ from their yard
She later notice that the gnome was indeed gone, only to have it reappear days later

Obama: ‘By hook or by crook I will expand the government’

No surprise really, but still Obama keeps pushing the envelope for the tolerance level of the American people. Apparently, there is no bounds. It’s almost that he delights in pulling our chain. Why else keep harping on his damnable phone and pen. Here we go:

Daily Caller:

President Barack Obama says he’s going to push the limits on presidential power as far as he can go during the last two years of his tenure.

“Where [elected Republicans in Congress] are not willing to work with us, we will do it administratively or we will convene the private sector,” he said in a friendly interview with The Huffington Post.

“By hook or by crook,” he added.

Obama said his big-government push would “make sure that when I leave this office, that the country is more prosperous, more people have opportunity, kids have a better education, we’re more competitive, climate change is being taken more seriously than it was, and we are actually trying to do something about it.”

Obama and his Kenyan Muslim Sharia Law support

Six years ago, when few were vetting Obama and his sordid past that never was explored, I was captured with his Kenyan activities. For me, it told us all that we would need to know about this Manchurian candidate. So let us return to the years 2008 to 2012 for a few snippets from my numerous Kenyan posts.

Obama supports Sharia Law and Constitutional change in Kenya  (2010)

Odinga is a radical Muslim who’s pushing a new constitution on Kenya that requires all Muslims in the country to obey Sharia law. It also forbids any public displays of Christianity. Odinga cut a deal with radical Islamic groups to get it passed and Obama continues to support him behind the scenes with millions of tax payer dollars.

Odinga burned 50 Christians in a Church seeking refuge.

Get this: Odinga’s campaign slogan was “Vote For Change.”

Members of Congress are beginning to question the Obama administration’s full throated support for a radical Islamic constitution in  Kenya. Rep. Darrell Issa (R-CA) is calling for an investigation and says the administration may be violating federal law.

Obama and Odinga Campaign in Kenya before Election. (You may want to move up the clip to about 2:30 if you weary of Obama’s preening) He tells the Kenyans they need a more “transparent” government.

Islamic Killer Bomb Blasts Anti-Sharia Political Rally

Kenyan President Mwai Kibaki convened an emergency meeting of the country’s security chiefs yesterday following blasts that killed six people during a political rally against a draft constitution that would  recognize Islamic courts. – Obama, Kenya’s native son, strongly supports the change to Kenya’s constitution.

Prime Minister Raila Odinga said the attack was an “isolated case.” But
the National Council of Churches blamed the attack on the government and supporters of the draft constitution.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden urged Kenyans to embrace constitutional
reform during a speech here last week. But prominent politicians and
Kenya’s church leaders want the draft defeated because of allowances for
abortion and Islamic courts that deal with family matters, issues
opposed by conservative U.S. groups.

Odinga now claims he and Obama are cousins (BBC here.)

Look how beautifully and seamlessly this is playing out for Barack Hussein Obama. A man with little to no domestic experience and NO foreign policy experience swoops in to save the day in battle worn Kenya. His foreign policy resume fecund with the sobriquet “peacemaker”.  His partner in crime, Odinga, the violent, disturbing agitator with a brutal past has signed an agreement to usher sharia (Islamic law) into Kenya

During the 2008 presidential elections, Pamela Geller reported extensively on Obama’s disturbing ties to the violent pro-sharia agitator Raila Odinga. He campaigned for him and is alleged to have supported him financially.

Islamic governments have targeted Kenya as a key element in the spread of Islam in Horn of Africa and ultimately the world. The Kenyan Diaspora including Presidential candidate Sen.Barack Hussein Obama has also played a part. The fall of Kenya into Islamist control would be devastating to anti-terrorist activities in the Horn of Africa, not to mention the potential for expansion of a caliphate. One has to ask, how fast will Kenya go Islamic and apply Shariah law?   (February 2008)

From her January11 post: Obama backed sharia advocate Odinga against American ally Kenya President Mwai Kibaki. He was unequivocal in his support, going so far as bragging to his shills and sycophants in the media (TIME Magazine’s Joe Klein here),

“Obama has had near-daily conversations with the U.S. Ambassador in Kenya or with opposition leader Raila Odinga.

Obama’s bias for Odinga was so blatant that a Kenya government spokesman denounced Obama during his visit as Raila’s“stooge.”

Odinga signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the Muslim community of
Kenya. Odinga

As predicted in 2008, Obama is behind a constitutional change in Kenya in support of sharia law.
