Judge Jeanine: “The D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg Is A Drunk!” (Video)

“A famous Court of Appeals judge once said, a Grand Jury could indict a ham sandwich. Now I believe in the rule of law, but I’m not going to sugarcoat this one,” Judge Jeanine Pirro said at the start of her opening statement, Saturday night..

“The indictment of Texas Governor Rick Perry for abuse of his veto power and coercion of a public servant –  is pure unadulterated hogwash! It makes D.A.s like me cringe in embarrassment,” she thundered. “No one disputes that the law gives the governor the power to veto funding.”

“A little backstory, here…” the judge purred, signalling she was about to drop the hammer. “The D.A. Rosemary Lehmberg is a drunk! Yes! The chief law enforcement officer of Austin County (she means Travis County) Texas is not just a drunk – she’s a convicted drunk driver. She actually spent time in jail. Imagine! The chief law enforcement officer is a convict who served jail time!”

Pirro went on to say that she has no sympathy for drunk drivers. “They don’t have to get behind the wheel of a car,” she said. “I’ve seen the consequences of drunk driving – innocents slaughtered by thousands of pounds of steel because a drunk CHOSE to get behind the wheel of a car.”

But the judge wasn’t through. “Folks, it’s even worse than this,” she continued. “Her blood alcohol level was three times the legal limit. And her behavior both before and after her arrest was so outrageous, so threatening, so belligerent, so combative – the woman had to be strapped down! And this woman actually thinks that she should remain the person who decides who gets indicted and who doesn’t?!”

Pirro had on Democrat strategist Joe Trippi, who was in full agreement with her (and  David Axelrod!) He called the move  “way beyond the pale” and that it “reeks of politics all the way around.”

Trippi predicted that the indictment would actually help Perry in the Republican primaries.

Plus, an extensive analysis from prosecutor Patrick Frey.Words truly fail to describe what an outrageous and unsupportable abuse of prosecutorial power this is. The special prosecutor, Michael McCrum, has no business being given prosecutorial authority — and the fact that Obama considered him for a U.S. Attorney position should deeply frighten anyone who cares about the integrity of the criminal justice system.”

The Obama Administration Finally Agrees To Arm The Kurds (Video)

Charles Krauthammer has been hammering this point for weeks – arm the Kurds, they’re running low on supplies, but they’re fierce fighters and US allies who want to fight ISIS. But the Obama administration only wanted to go through the dysfunctional Iraqi government.

Finally someone in the administration caught a clue.

The Obama administration has begun directly providing weapons to Kurdish forces who have started to make gains against Islamic militants in northern Iraq, senior U.S. officials said Monday.

Previously, the U.S. had insisted on only selling arms to the Iraqi government in Baghdad, but the Kurdish peshmerga fighters had been losing ground to Islamic State militants in recent weeks.

The officials wouldn’t say which U.S. agency is providing the arms or what weapons are being sent, but one official said it isn’t the Pentagon. The CIA has historically done similar quiet arming operations.

The officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the operation publicly.

 

According to Fox News, the US military is providing heavy weapons.

A Weak Horse Will Not Defeat ISIS

b1-weak-horse_c0-120-2724-1936_s300x200

 

“When people see a strong horse and a weak horse, by nature, they will like the strong horse”, an oft-cited analogy that compares al-Qaeda to a strong, and therefore, likable,racehorse.

A 4th round of airstrikes hit ISIS targets in Iraq, today, although it remains to be seen how much good these very limited “pinprick” strikes are doing. Retired General Thomas McInerney has been saying that we need to hammering ISIS with up to 200 strikes a day. A general consensus has formed that Obama’s actions in Iraq are more of a political solution than a military one.

“It’s clearly very very ineffective to say the least,” Senator John McCain told Fox News, Sunday morning. Some generic Democrat no one’s ever heard of spouted inane talking points the White House (obviously) supplied him: “I think what has contributed clearly to the situation has not been our presence or lack of presence…” (uh-huh) “It’s been the politics of Maliki - his alienation of the Sunni community…”

Oh, that’s clearly it, Ben Rhodes. (We may as well address the actual person  behind these idiotic talking points.)

That is  totally it. ISIS feels alienated. That’s why they’re crucifying Christians,  beheading adults and children – (capturing the blood pouring out of their necks with buckets),  raping and pillaging everything in sight – carving a path of destruction and genocidal horror throughout the land. Anyone who has seen the pictures knows there is no “political solution” to be had with these demonic fiends. It’s as if ISIS is starring in their own D-grade horror flick – the kind I don’t watch because they leave nothing to the imagination -sick slasher films with lots of blood and gore, screaming, and crying. But these monsters are real. So is the blood and gore, screaming and crying. These monsters can not be placated or negotiated with. They simply need to be stopped – which means eliminating them off the face of the earth.

In church today, one of the intercessory prayers was for “peace and reconciliation in the Middle East”. I  prayed for war. There is no “reconciliation” to be had with these barbarians. I’ll pray that they be converted and see the error of their ways, sure. BUT ALSO for a “strong horse” (to use OBL’s term) to come to civilization’s rescue and blast them to smithereens if they don’t..

Instead, we’ve got a president who tried  to end the war authorization in Iraq only two weeks ago – so he could brag to the American people during an election year that he totally 100% ended Bush’s illegal War for oil and no Americans would ever have to go back. I’m sure to the geniuses in the White House that seemed like a winning message for Dems in the mid term elections. Everything is a political calculation with this “Commander in Chief.”

Even our national security. Our Southern border is wide open. They say people from at least 50 different countries are taking advantage of the red carpet Obama’s laid out. Korans, prayer rugs and at least one Urdu-to-English dictionary have been found  among the debris near the border.

Has it dawned on America yet that we have a president who has no interest in keeping us safe? None at all? Do the blind now see? Or will they vote another Democrat into office in 2016 to seal our doom?

UPDATE:

Will THIS convince them?

 There seems to be an effort afoot at the White House to demonstrate to the world that President Obama, who has now been getting flack even from the mainstream press for being disengaged – me and you have been wondering where he’s been for some time – in fact DOES SHOW UP FOR WORK.

Judge Jeanine Pirro Berates “Feckless” Obama: “You Were Wrong on Iraq and Syria” (Video)

Jeanine Pirro slammed the president for being wrong about just about everything on her Fox show, Justice with Judge Jeanine, Saturday night.

“The problem is President Barack Obama is too inexperienced, too out of touch, and too disengaged to protect us” she said.

Describing Obama’s policy as “feckless,” she declared, “You don’t have a clear mission, and you don’t have a clear strategy…your track record doesn’t exactly put the fear of God in any of those terrorists.”

Pirro went on to list all the times Obama has been wrong on Iraq.

“You were wrong when you scoffed at the idea of genocide or ethnic cleansing in Iraq if U.S. troops were withdrawn,” she said. “You were wrong when you pulled American troops out of Iraq saying it would be ‘irresponsible.’ … You were wrong when you said al Qaeda was on its heels … You were wrong when you dismissed ISIS as nothing more than a JV squad … You were wrong when you dithered on that red line in Syria as ISIS gained strength and military experience in that war. You were wrong leaving an inexperienced Iraqi military with our weapons [that] they dropped at the first sign of ISIS. The same weapons now being used against their victims.”

Pirro had John Bolton on to share his insights on Obama’s thinking with the too little/too late limited strikes. I keep hearing the same refrain – what is he doing? Why now?  ISIS has been on a genocidal rampage throughout Christian communities in Syria and Iraq. Why is Obama only now acting to prevent genocide? “Is the world Descending into chaos under Obama’s watch?” She asked  Bolton.

Pinal County Sheriff Paul Babeu was also on to give his thoughts on the border crisis.

Judge Jeanine: It’s Time For The Pope To Start Protecting His Christian Flock

It’s usually Barack Obama who is taken out to the woodshed every weekend on Justice with Jeanine Pirro, but this Saturday night, it was the Pope’s turn.

In her opening statement, tonight, Judge Jeanine more than ever – spoke for me, a Catholic who has been repeatedly disappointed by this particular pope.

“I mean no disrespect,” Pirro – a Catholic herself – said, “but it is time for the papacy – and Pope Francis in particular – to start protecting his Christian flock.”

She continued, “this month, Pope Francis preached that immigrant children in facilities around the United States should be welcomed and protected.”

She argued that the immigrant children are being protected and fed, here – “No children are being killed in the United States. But Christian children are being killed in the Middle East!” She went on to argue that the pope’s prayers for the Middle East are not enough because Christian culture and artifacts are in the process of being destroyed.

“They are taking crosses off churches and turning them into mosques with loudspeakers. Priceless relics are being destroyed or sold. And for the first time in 1,600 years, Mass will not be held in the ancient city of Mosul, Iraq. The language of Jesus – Aramaic – could be lost as well as Christians who speak it are murdered.”

“Your holiness – you are the leader of the flock – you control one of the wealthiest organizations in the world. And with wealth – comes power. Your recent trips and your planned trips do not reflect the urgent concern necessary for Christians in Iraq and Syria and Egypt,” Pirro said.

“Every church in the world should be repeating a strong, urgent message from the papacy –  condemning this slaughter and calling for the world to stop the annihilation of innocents instead of worrying about immigrant children already protected by America.”

“You must act!” Pirro declared. “It is time for the papacy to get out in front of this Christian massacre!”

“The Vatican is a country with Ambassadors and a Secret Service. You can put political pressure on nations. You can provide sanctuary. You have resources for humanitarian aid. But most of all, you have the power of the pulpit, you have the power to change the world.”

“Turn the other cheek doers not mean that you cannot respond. It does not mean that you cannot provide humanitarian aid. Turn the other cheek does not mean, that the most you can offer is a prayer,” Pirro protested..

I keep waiting for a statement from the Bishops or the Vatican – or at least a prayer offered by my own church for suffering Christians throughout the Middle East during the general intercessions – and I haven’t heard it. What is the matter with us?

Pirro had former UN Ambassador, John Bolton on to discuss the danger Christians are in worldwide because of radical Islam.

She also had on Father Anthony Hanna, a Coptic Christian Pries, to discuss the plight of his people in the Middle East.

The Anchoress reports that the USCCB,  sent a letter to the Regime requesting aid for Iraq. It just released a pdf of Bishop Pates’ letter to White House national security adviser Susan Rice.

Last month I wrote to you about the escalating violence in Iraq that targets Christians and otherreligious communities. I asked that the U.S. government urge Iraqi political leaders to form an inclusive government representative of all ethnic and religious groups, thus reversing the exclusion that has been exploited by extremists. Only in this way can the rule of law be restored and the common good of all be served.

Sadly the situation in Iraq has only deteriorated in the past month.

***

While the bishop was writing to Rice, requesting humanitarian assistance for Iraq, Rice (who always seems to get the worst jobs) was writing a letter to Congress on behalf of the administration, seeking to insure that no US Troops ever go to Iraq again:

The Obama administration is calling on Congress to fully repeal the war authorization in Iraq to ensure that no U.S. troops return to the country, which is under siege by the extremist Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL or ISIS).

White House national security adviser Susan Rice petitioned Speaker of the House John Boehner (R., Ohio) in a letter Friday (pdf) to completely repeal the war authorization, officially known as the Authorization for Use of Military Force in Iraq, or AUMF.

Rice’s letter was sent as Congress just hours before it approved a resolution opposing U.S. military intervention in Iraq, where the terrorist group ISIL claims to have established an Islamic caliphate.

“We believe a more appropriate and timely action for Congress to take is the repeal of the outdated 2002 Authorization for Use of Military Force in Iraq,” Rice wrote, according to a copy of her letter obtained by the Washington Free Beacon.

“With American combat troops having completed their withdrawal from Iraq on December 18, 2011, the Iraq AUMF is no longer used for any U.S. government activities and the administration fully supports its repeal,” Rice wrote. “Such a repeal would go much further in giving the American people confidence that ground forces will not be sent into combat in Iraq.”

Cruz: A False Promise of Amnesty is the Opposite of Compassionate

On Fox News Sunday, this morning, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas discussed the ongoing immigration crisis and the bill he recently introduced to address it. With the Ukraine back on the front pages, he also discussed his ideas to stop President Putin’s aggression in Ukraine.

Cruz visited a crucial border juncture in McAllen, Texas, Saturday, and then appeared at an event with Glenn Beck, who is visiting the border this weekend  to give aid to the unaccompanied minors. He sat down with Chris Wallace for the interview prior to his visit to the border.

Regarding immigration:

“The cause of this crisis is the promise of amnesty, Cruz explained. If you look at the history of this issue, in 2011, there were roughly 6,000 children apprehended coming in illegally. Then in 2012, President Obama unilaterally granted amnesty to some 800,000 people who were here illegally, who entered as children.

“The direct foreseeable consequence of that was the number of unaccompanied children skyrocketed so that this year the Obama Administration’s estimating 90,000 kids will come next year; 145,000. That’s up from just 6,000 three years ago.”

….

“What I want to do is have action that fixes the problem. If we pass a bill – let’s take President Obama’s proposed bill, $3.7 billion – it does nothing to solve the problem.”

“No, what I’m interested in is fixing the problem. And it’s only Washington – all of the proposals being floated are missing the cause of the problem.”

….

“It is the opposite of compassionate to continue this crisis. I don’t want to see tens of thousands of little boys and little girls being physically assaulted, being sexually assaulted by drug dealers. The way to fix it, the bill I’ve introduced is a very simple bill.

“It is a page and a half. And it simply says the President cannot grant amnesty going forward. It prohibits the President from granting amnesty.”

….

“The objective here should be to help the kids and the way you help the kids is you eliminate the magnet which is President Obama’s amnesty.”

….

“I’ll tell you who’s holding these kids ransom is Harry Reid and the President, because their view is don’t do anything to fix the problem. He mentions comprehensive immigration reform. The Gang of Eight bill is one of the causes of this problem because what the kids are saying is they’re coming because they believe they’ll get amnesty; part of the Gang of Eight bill was promising them amnesty.”

Regarding stopping Putin’s aggression in Ukraine:

“We should do a number of things. One, we need vigorous sanctions. We need sanctions that target the Russian energy sector, the Russian financial sector, that put serious consequences for what Putin is doing.

“Two, we should immediately reinstate the anti-ballistic missile batteries in Eastern Europe that President Obama canceled in 2009 in an effort to appease Russia.

“And three, we need to open the export of liquid natural gas, which will help liberate Ukraine and Eastern Europe and will also impose real financial penalties on Russia and will create jobs and economic growth back here.

“That’s what leadership would look like, standing up to Putin instead of demonstrating weakness because when Putin sees weakness, he demonstrates over and over again aggression and willingness to go after others.”

Jeanine Pirro: ‘Mr. President – You Need To Get Your Act Together’ (Video)

Another Saturday night, another tongue-lashing administered to Obama by the inimitable Judge Jeanine.

“Americans don’t want a spectator,” Pirro noted before listing off a number of global crises that demand the president’s attention. She rattled off five of the world’s biggest crises, at play in Iraq, Syria, Ukraine, Israel and Hamas, and the US Southern border.

“Actually we’re in quite a hell of a mess,” she declared. “And Mr. President – you need to get your act together. Put on your big boy pants and get in the game with a coherent foreign policy.”

Ronald Coburn,  former Border Patrol Deputy Chief, was Pirro’s guest to discuss the crisis on the border.

Coburn claimed that in his capacity as a border security expert, he’s been watching the social, electronic networks and is seeing the cartels boasting about their gains and laughing at the way the US government is handling the situation.

“Tatooed up killers are coming across the border not to contribute to society but to prey on society”, he said.

 

Krauthammer: America’s Decline Is A Choice (Video)

America is in decline -but not as a result of  events, Charles Krauthammer explained on the O’Reilly Factor, Thursday night. “What we have with Obama is a president choosing decline.”

“We are in a position to dominate again, he continued, “but we have a president who doesn’t believe in American exceptionalism, American greatness and he has chosen for American to retreat from the Middle East, to not lift a finger in the Ukraine – basically to make us one nation among others and that is a choice. It can be reversed, but that’s the challenge America faces.”

Without mentioning any names, O’Reilly brought up certain conservative radio personalities who were saying what Krauthammer said right from the beginning.

“They said, ‘this guy…he wants America to decline in power, he is not going to promote our best interests. This was on right-wing talk radio, and many people – including me – were skeptical of that approach. (We know, Bill.)

Of course, O’Reilly is referring to people like Mark Levin and Rush Limbaugh, who famously declared, “I hope he fails.”

Krauthammer said, “this is a man who believes America ought to retreat as a matter of ideology and in part because he wants to see all of our efforts on domestic affairs to become the Social Democracy like Europe.”

“It is very clear that he believes that America in some way perhaps doesn’t have a moral right to be the leader of the world. And I think that he feels that the sins we have created in the past the injuries we’ve inflicted on others – the Iraqis I think he would list, among others –  does not entitle us to a hegemonic position dominant position we had after the cold war,” Krauthammer concluded.

Here’s Rush’s “I hope he fails” monologue from January 16, 2009 while the the mortifying cult of Obama was in full swing. You may remember the intense indignation, anger and hysteria this incited on the left culminating in another effort on the part of Democrats to “hush Rush.”

RUSH: I got a request here from a major American print publication. “Dear Rush: For the Obama [Immaculate] Inauguration we are asking a handful of very prominent politicians, statesmen, scholars, businessmen, commentators, and economists to write 400 words on their hope for the Obama presidency. We would love to include you. If you could send us 400 words on your hope for the Obama presidency, we need it by Monday night, that would be ideal.”

Now, we’re caught in this trap again. The premise is, what is your “hope.” My hope, and please understand me when I say this. I disagree fervently with the people on our side of the aisle who have caved and who say, “Well, I hope he succeeds. We’ve got to give him a chance.” Why? They didn’t give Bush a chance in 2000. Before he was inaugurated the search-and-destroy mission had begun. I’m not talking about search-and-destroy, but I’ve been listening to Barack Obama for a year-and-a-half. I know what his politics are. I know what his plans are, as he has stated them. I don’t want them to succeed.

If I wanted Obama to succeed, I’d be happy the Republicans have laid down. And I would be encouraging Republicans to lay down and support him. Look, what he’s talking about is the absorption of as much of the private sector by the US government as possible, from the banking business, to the mortgage industry, the automobile business, to health care. I do not want the government in charge of all of these things. I don’t want this to work. So I’m thinking of replying to the guy, “Okay, I’ll send you a response, but I don’t need 400 words, I need four: I hope he fails.” (interruption) What are you laughing at? See, here’s the point. Everybody thinks it’s outrageous to say. Look, even my staff, “Oh, you can’t do that.” Why not? Why is it any different, what’s new, what is unfair about my saying I hope liberalism fails? Liberalism is our problem. Liberalism is what’s gotten us dangerously close to the precipice here. Why do I want more of it? I don’t care what the Drive-By story is. I would be honored if the Drive-By Media headlined me all day long: “Limbaugh: I Hope Obama Fails.” Somebody’s gotta say it.

Were the liberals out there hoping Bush succeeded or were they out there trying to destroy him before he was even inaugurated? Why do we have to play the game by their rules? Why do we have to accept the premise here that because of the historical nature of his presidency, that we want him to succeed? This is affirmative action, if we do that. We want to promote failure, we want to promote incompetence, we want to stand by and not object to what he’s doing simply because of the color of his skin? Sorry. I got past the historical nature of this months ago. He is the president of the United States, he’s my president, he’s a human being, and his ideas and policies are what count for me, not his skin color, not his past, not whatever ties he doesn’t have to being down with the struggle, all of that’s irrelevant to me. We’re talking about my country, the United States of America, my nieces, my nephews, your kids, your grandkids. Why in the world do we want to saddle them with more liberalism and socialism? Why would I want to do that? So I can answer it, four words, “I hope he fails.” And that would be the most outrageous thing anybody in this climate could say. Shows you just how far gone we are. Well, I know, I know. I am the last man standing.

I’m happy to be the last man standing. I’m honored to be the last man standing. Yeah, I’m the true maverick. I can do more than four words. I could say I hope he fails and I could do a brief explanation of why. You know, I want to win. If my party doesn’t, I do. If my party has sacrificed the whole concept of victory, sorry, I’m now the Republican in name only, and they are the sellouts. I’m serious about this. Why in the world, it’s what Ann Coulter was talking about, the tyranny of the majority, all these victims here, we gotta make sure the victims are finally assuaged. Well, the dirty little secret is this isn’t going to assuage anybody’s victim status, and the race industry isn’t going to go away, and the fact that America’s original sin of slavery is going to be absolved, it’s not going to happen. Just isn’t, folks. It’s too big a business for the left to keep all those things alive that divide the people of this country into groups that are against each other. Yes, I’m fired up about this.

 

 

Greg Gutfeld: We Gave Obama America – He Gave Us Detroit (Video)

A bitter rant from Greg Gutfeld on the Five, yesterday,  expresses what a lot of Americans are feeling right now as they watch the promise of a better tomorrow for their children crumble before their very eyes.

Via Freedom’s Lighthouse:

“He is doing something by doing nothing, because instability is his stability,” Gutfeld said. “His ‘Tear Down the Wall’ moment is happening right now. Unfortunately, that wall is our wall – it’s the Border.”

He concluded, “the belief is whenever you visit somewhere, you’re supposed to leave it better off than when you entered. Obama got that backwards. We gave him America and in return, he gave us Detroit.”

There’s nothing compassionate about bankrupting our children and grandchildren, destroying our school system, destroying local law enforcement and hospitals, what’s been built up over 200 years.

MRC: The Border Crisis Stories the Networks Aren’t Telling You About:

Government officials restricting reporter access to illegal immigrants at detention centers. Border patrol agents being infected with diseases “not seen in decades.” The general in charge of the U.S. Southern Command warning that terrorists and gang members could be hiding among the new influx of immigrants. These are just some of the startling new border crisis stories the Big Three (ABC, CBS, NBC) have refused to tell their viewers about.

The Conversation: BCFS Withdraws Bid For $50 Million Illegal Alien Resort Spa:

Gateway Pundit reports that following his meeting with the group in Texas, last week,   Obama awarded BCFS $190,707,505 to build offices in six cities and four states.

 The new offices will be located in New York, NY; Miami, FL; Houston, TX; Dallas, TX; Sacramento-area, CA; and Los Angeles-area, CA, will serve as regional hubs for BCFS’ new family support and evaluation programs. 35,670

Baptist Child & Family Services (BCFS) is expanding nationwide.

BCFS is the same group that runs a temporary detention center for illegal immigrants at Lackland Air Force Base in San Antonio. Todd Starnes refered to them as “brownshirts” in his blockbuster Fox News article about the secrecy surrounding the detention center.

 “There were several of us who wanted to talk about the camps, but the agents made it clear we would be arrested,” a psychiatric counselor at Lackland told Starnes. “We were under orders not to say anything.”

 The sources said workers were guarded by a security force from the BCFS, which the Department of Health and Human Services hired to run the Lackland Camp.

The sources say security forces called themselves the “Brown Shirts.”

 “It was a very submissive atmosphere,” the counselor said. “Once you stepped onto the grounds, you abided by their laws – the Brown Shirt laws.”

 She said the workers were stripped of their cellphones and other communication devices. Anyone caught with a phone was immediately fired.

“Everyone was paranoid,” she said. “The children had more rights than the workers.”

John Hayward, The Conversation: The myth of the Central American apocalypse:

While we’re busy retiring the phony Obama talking point about how a 2008 anti-human-trafficking law means he can’t do anything to repel the human wave coming out of Central America, let’s also dispense with the equally bogus talking point that it’s a sudden “refugee” crisis caused by an abrupt surge of violence in the countries of origin.

To be sure, conditions in Honduras, El Salvador, etc. are very bad.  You can’t blame anyone for wanting to escape them.  This does not, in any way, obligate the people of the United States to care for all of those people, or grant them permanent residency.  But it simply is not true that some massive surge in violence over the last year prompted a refugee exodus on par with the people fleeing from war zones.  It stinks about the same as it always has in Central America, and it most assuredly will not get any better if the corrupt regimes and drug gangs ruling those territories know they can count on the Americans to take care of everyone they have failed.  The concept of national sovereignty means nothing if the people of one nation can be held responsible for the consequences of actions taken by the government of another.

Judge Jeanine Pirro Blasts Obama on Border Crisis: You Created This Mess – YOU Fix It (Video)

Judge Jeanine Pirro vented about Obama and his manufactured crisis on the border in her opening statement, Saturday night. She called the massive influx of unaccompanied minors coming over the border a “Trojan Horse” to change the voting demographics in the country – another outrage that she said  adds to “a long line of scandals, screw-ups, shocking stupidity, or maybe – shocking shrewdness.”

“Don’t fooled by this administration saying they’re going to send them back, she warned viewers.” The average deportation time is five years. But that’s only after we pay for advocates, translators, lawyers, judges, housing, food, healthcare, education, medication. And in the end – statistics tell us that 90% are released, anyway.”

She continued, “so  this week, P____ Obama refused to go to the border to see the crisis he created, Instead – he’d rather run off to the golf course, or play pool. And in true Obama fashion he wants 4 billion or our dollars to fix this – only 2% by the way of which goes to close the border. And since nothing is his fault, if only those Republicans in the Texas delegation would work with him, this could be solved.”

“With all due respect Mr. President,” Pirro purred, ” you created this mess – now YOU fix it. YOU invited them in – now YOU solve it. Take that pen and that phone of yours and make it right.”

“Mr President, there is a reason we think you’re the worst president in recent history,” Pirro added. “We don’t trust you – we don’t believe you we don’t think you’re capable of leading the country. Illegally entering the United States is not a right to citizenship!”

I draw but one conclusion, she concluded. It’s all a Trojan Horse.

She had on Texas Congressman Louie Gohmert who just spend a late evening on the border and was tremendously grieved by what he saw.

“There are wave after wave after wave of people coming,” he told Pirro. “No child comes in unaccompanied. They pay drug cartels to bring them in – why? Because this president has given the impression – correctly – that if you come, you get to stay. So we are luring children here, through savage circumstances – some of them get pulled off into sexual trafficking — (which the 2008 law was supposed to thwart) — so they come here and immediately they’re expecting their rights.”

Video: Krauthammer and Greta Van Susteren Discuss Federal Judge’s IRS Ruling

Counsel for the IRS appeared before a federal judge, Thursday morning, to explain why they failed to tell him thousands of IRS emails were lost, and why they filed a demonstrably false status report.

Today’s civil case was brought by Judicial Watch, the government watchdogs who been pursuing information about IRS targeting of conservative groups since last year.

The notoriously tough Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the IRS one month to explain under oath how it lost so many emails to and from Lois Lerner, a central figure in the controversy.

The AP report via Townhall:

U.S. District Judge Emmet G. Sullivan gave the tax agency a month to submit the explanation in writing. Sullivan issued the order Thursday as part of a freedom of information lawsuit by Judicial Watch, a conservative watchdog group.

Greta Van Susteren had Charles Krauthammer on to talk about the latest developments. The two agreed that if not for the FOIA and tough, no-nonsense  judges, the IRS would still be successfully stonewalling.

Dr. K said, “you see this pattern of deception and concealment on the part of Lois Lerner and  the IRS consistently.”

He added later, “they’re playing a game – unless you ask us the absolute right question, we’re not going to answer you.”

Greta naively declared, “I think that president Obama should order Eric Holder – the Attorney General –  to appoint a Special Prosecutor, and if he won’t – he should get rid of him.”

I can’t imagine she really thinks Obama would get rid of the  firewall of protection Eric Holder provides him. The most corrupt Attorney General in American history will step down only when an equally corrupt collectivist is secured to take his place..

“The absurdity of all of this, is that all of this is being discovered through the Freedom of Information Act,” Krathammer continued. “This was never intended to uncover this kind of scandal – it was so that people would be transparent. But because the administration and the IRS have literally shown contempt for Congress —- the only way we’ve been discovering all these things is through the FOIA, and this tough judge on the Circuit court who is no nonsense.”

“But that’s nothing,” Greta chimed in. “If you think Judge Emmet Sullivan is making their heads spin over at the IRS, there’s another IRS hearing before Judge Reggie Walton who I’ve known for twenty years.”

“I’m tellin’ ya,” Greta continued, “get ready because Judge Reggie Walton is also not afraid and he’s tough.”

Excellent news.

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy commented  on the latest revelations in the IRS scandal and the judge’s ruling on The Kelly File.

He thinks –  like I do – that a Special Counsel is no panacea here, because the Regime gets to pick who that person would be – and it would assuredly be someone who is “controllable.”   That investigation would go dark because suddenly no one would be able to talk on advice of their lawyers, and the whole story would disappear from the news as a whitewash ensues. McCarthy  said he’s surprised they haven’t jumped at the chance of appointing one.

Maybe they haven’t found someone crooked enough? Nah – in Washington DC, there’s no shortage of corrupt lefties on the take.

Video: Perry Describes Meeting With Obama – Calls For National Guard On the Border

lead_large

 Texas Gov. Rick Perry met with the President Wednesday in a pair of meetings in Dallas to discuss border security, and immigration issues.

Obama described the meeting as “constructive,” but judging from the above photo it was not immediately clear if Governor Perry would agree with that assessment. He looks to be grimacing, while others around the table seem to be sharing a joke he’s not in on.

Via US News:

In the larger meeting, Perry focused on securing the border, once again urging the president to deploy National Guard troops to beef up security there, said Democratic Rep. Eddie Bernice Johnson, one of the participants. Obama said it would be more costly to put the National Guard there than to solve the problem, Johnson said.

The meetings were held as unaccompanied minors, mostly from Central America, continue to pour over Texas’ southern border with Mexico. More than 52,000 of the youth, mostly from Central America, have illegally crossed into the USA in the fiscal year that began in October — nearly four times the number two years ago.

It was the first face-to-face meeting between Obama and Perry, who has blasted the federal government for not doing enough to stem the flow of migrants, since the crisis erupted this summer.

Obama said afterward that Perry expressed concerns about the number of agents at the border, whether they are positioned to deter people entering rather than take them into custody, and how long it takes to process those who are apprehended and send home those who have no legal right to be in the United States.

Obama said, “There’s nothing that the governor indicated he’d like to see that I have a philosophical objection to.”

In a statement issued after their meeting, Perry said, “Five hundred miles south of here in the Rio Grande Valley, there is a humanitarian crisis unfolding that has been created by bad public policy, in particular the failure to secure the border. Securing the border is attainable, and the president needs to commit the resources necessary to get this done.”

Gov. Perry was On Hannity, Wednesday night to talk about the meeting, and how he thinks we can secure the border. And he pulled no punches on Obama, comparing the president’s  false bravado about the border being secure over the years, to his “al Qaeda is on the run” BS in 2012.

Perry says he told Obama he has the ability to stop the humanitarian crisis on the border by putting the National guard there. “Not a more powerful message can be sent to Central America than that.” He said, “we’re not interested in apprehension – we’re interested in prevention.”

Perry said Obama should come to the border to see the crisis for himself.

Perry told Hannity that he told Obama, “This is important for you to absorb as a father, but more importantly as the president of the United States, to see the humanitarian crisis.”

According to Perry, Obama thinks taking a trip along the border would be a political photo-op.

“It’s not,” Perry said. “It’s about real people, and real issues, a humanitarian crisis that he has the ability to stop.”

The Texas governor said he’s not interested in apprehension, he’s interested in prevention. He said that only 2 percent of the $3.7 billion supplemental that Obama has requested would go to border security.

The supplemental isn’t about securing the border,” he said. “The supplemental is about something else. You’ll have to get the president to tell you what he wants those dollars for.”

Perry said the president can unilaterally direct the DoD to use title 32 –  which is how the federal government would pay for it – to put the National Guard on the border and secure it, but – “he keeps going back to the Republicans won’t work with me and they have to fund this 3.7 billion dollar bill, and I said Mr. President – you can deal with this – you can unilaterally direct the Dept. of Defense to put those troops on the border to do that work, and he keeps talking about a philosophical issue he may or may not have with that. And we’re past that.”

“This isn’t a Democrat issue or a Republican issue, this is an American issue,” he said, stressing that there must be a bipartisan solution.

The president has repeatedly said through the years that the border is secure and made jokes about those who disagreed.

“That’s the same president that said al Qaeda’s on the run, and I don’t know whether he’s inept, or there’s something else going on, as I’ve said before. But the fact is the border is not secure. We have a humanitarian crisis on our hands now because the border’s not secure, and the president needs to understand that the single most important thing that he can do is put the National Guard on the border to coordinate with local law enforcement, with our state law enforcement, with the border patrol, and you can secure the border.”

Everything to the hyper-partisan ideologue Obama is about politics – the strategy, tactics, messaging, optics, etc. He’s not as interested in solving a humanitarian problem he caused, as he is in parlaying it into a way to pressure congress into giving him more money to spend as he pleases, and attacking the mean spirited, stingy Republicans if they don’t give him everything he wants.

Obama has telegraphed to his toadies in the media what the narrative is to be –  they are already prepping the battlefield to attack the GOP on the border crisis.

Governor Rick Perry is providing the GOP with some powerful ammo to hit them back with. If they’ll only listen.

Krauthammer: Obama Has No Policy for Immigration Crisis (Video)

On Special Report, tonight, Charles Krauthammer called the humanitarian crisis on the border a microcosm of the Obama administration.

Instead an actual policy, he said,  “all the argument, all the debate, all the back and forth is about the optics, the politics – the presentation.”

Dr. K said  the $4 billion Obama wants to spend on the crisis “is simply a way to absorb all these people…and not do anything to stop the influx.”

Lt. Col. Ralph Peters Responds To “Horse’s Ass” Bill Ayers: “It’s Time People Stopped Insulting Vietnam Vets”

Megyn Kelly had Col Ralph Peters on her show last night to respond to the several tons of excrement Bill Ayers shoveled during his recent interview with Kelly.

For instance, the Weather Underground claims they did what they did because the US Military were killing 6,000 people a week during the Vietnam War. Kelly asked Peters if that was true.

“No,” he responded matter-of factly. “It’s simply not true. That’s a figure the hard left just pulled out of thin air.” He continued to note that Vietnam was a long and brutal war, and it’s true that a small number of Americans were involved in atrocities, for which they paid dearly. But the enemy Vietnamese – the Viet Cong – committed vastly more atrocities. “This notion that we just went there and slaughtered innocent civilians right and left – that’s the Oliver Stone version of history.”

Peters went on to express his dismay that leftists have taken control of the education system, and are peddling this garbage to our kids.

“You’re going to hear a lot more of that version of history because conservatives made a huge mistake in the past 50 years  by abandoning the educational system – K through 12, university and grad school – to the hard left. The result he says, “is a generation of young people who know the Bill Ayers side – but not the facts.”

The now agitated Peters, added, “by the way – it’s time people stopped insulting Vietnam Veterans. They were not monsters and butchers and baby killers. They were young men serving their country when the likes of Bill Ayers, wouldn’t.”

In response to Ayers proclamation that we should build monuments to deserters like Bowe Bergdahl, Peters said, “Since 1775, Lexington and Concord –  for 239 years –  good men and brave men have given their lives – so Bill Ayers could have the right to be a horse’s ass – and he is.

Peters noted that Obama’s handling of the Bowe Bergdahl affair – treating him like a returning hero, while ignoring genuine American heroes – was “pure Bill Ayers.”

“Bill Ayers and Bernardine Dohrn weren’t holding fundraisers for Barack Obama because they thought he was a great American,” Peters concluded.

More on his last, very crucial comments pertaining to the horse’s ass’s influence on our current president – after the video:

Why Ayers’ influence on Obama is so profoundly disturbing:

Via Zombie: William Ayers’ forgotten communist manifesto: Prairie Fire: 

William Ayers is a communist. But don’t take my word for it. He said so himself:

ayers1

And not some nicey-nice peace-and-love kind of communist. Through his group the Weather Underground, Ayers was planning to “seize power” in a violent communist takeover of the United States:

ayers2

The quotes above were scanned directly from a now long-forgotten book entitled Prairie Fire: The Politics of Revolutionary Anti-Imperialism, which was written and published in 1974 by William Ayers, Bernardine Dohrn and other members of the Weather Underground. In this slim volume, which functioned as the Weather Underground’s ideological manifesto, Ayers declares himself to be a communist, and announces that his group’s bombing campaign was intended to start a violent revolution to overthrow the American government.

Coincidentally, according to former Marxist schoolmate Dr. John Drew, Obama had the same goals while he was attending college at Occidental! And now he’s our President, and his commie pal is being lauded by our nation’s educators.

“Nah-nah, get over it –  your side lost!” Obama’s minions taunt. Yeah - okay.

No worries…

For the record, and just to be complete, here are links documenting some of Obama’s many connections to William Ayers:

• Ayers and Obama worked together for years on a school reform program called the Chicago Annenberg Challenge.
• Ayers and Obama also served together on the board of the Woods Fund of Chicago, a separate charity organization.
• Obama had his political coming-out party in William Ayers’ home.
• Ayers mentions Obama by name in a book he wrote in 1997, and mentions that the two are very close neighbors.
• Obama gave a short glowing review of that same Ayers book for the Chicago Tribune.
• Obama and Ayers were both presenters together on a panel about juvenile justice (organized by Michelle Obama).
• Both Obama and Ayers were close friends with the same person, Rashid Kalidi.
• There are also several unverified rumors swirling around that have not been documented: That Ayers may havehelped to write part (or all) of Obama’s autobiography; that Obama and Ayers shared an office space together for three years, on the same floor of the same building in Chicago; and that Ayers and Obama may have known each other as far back as 1981.

It gets worse.

When Bill Ayers and Bernadine Dohrn led the domestic terrorist group Weather Underground in 1969, a chance meeting led Army veteran Larry Grathwohl into joining the group. Grathwohl served as a courier, running messages between the group’s leadership (called the “Weather Bureau”) and individual cells that were to carry out attacks.

Grathwohl was also an informant for the FBI.

In an interview from the 1982 documentary No Place To Hide that recently surfaced, Grathwohl discussed what the Weathermen intended to do after overthrowing the U.S. government, including what they would do with those Americans who refused to embrace communism.

I asked, “Well what is going to happen to those people we can’t reeducate, that are diehard capitalists?” And the reply was that they’d have to be eliminated.

And when I pursued this further, they estimated they would have to eliminate 25 million people in these reeducation centers.

And when I say “eliminate,” I mean “kill.”

Twenty-five million people.

I want you to imagine sitting in a room with 25 people, most of which have graduate degrees, from Columbia and other well-known educational centers, and hear them figuring out the logistics for the elimination of 25 million people.

And they were dead serious.

That was Bob Owens, who interviewed Grathwohl for PJ Media 26 years later. You can read that interview, here.

Ayers’ work in the education field has not really been “apart from all that other stuff.” It’s just been a less violent means to an end – what he and Obama would call the “transformation of America.” Not that the end game won’t involve some unpleasantness.

Lefties may sneer at the fact that Americans are arming up from coast to coast in anticipation of….something. But the thing is – the truth about Obama’s past managed to slip past the media gatekeepers long ago and millions of us were chilled to the bone by what we learned.

Megyn Kelly also had on the detectives who investigated Ayers to react to her interview with Ayers:

The reason I think this country is doomed is not that people like Bill Ayers and Obama exist – it’s because the American people allowed them to have power – Bill Ayers over the educational system – Obama over all of our lives. This can’t end well.

Judicial Watch: IRS Officials Have “Pinned Themselves Into A Corner” (Video)

Judicial Watch’s   Chris Farrell appeared on Justice with Judge Jeanine with fill-in host Kimberly Guilfoyle, Saturday night.  Due to Judicial Watch’s efforts,  the IRS will have  to face a federal judge in court on July 10, 2014 to explain why the tax agency didn’t inform the court that Lois Lerner’s emails had been lost even though the agency had knowledge of the missing emails and of other IRS officials’ missing emails.

Via Gateway Pundit:

“We’ve been involved in litigation for months now. In fact, the revelations that have come about are because of our litigation to force the IRS to produce records… They never mentioned to us or the court about the supposedly lost emails. So, we forced them into court. They need to appear on July 10… The real problem with the IRS in this case is they’ve been in communication with the court and they have never told the court about these missing or lost emails. So they’ve made what appear to be false and misleading statements to the court about the records themselves and how they’re producing them to us. They’ve pinned themselves in a corner. They are in real trouble.”

The Conversation: IRS Officials To Face Judge Who Once Sicced a Special Prosecutor on the DOJ:

Former DOJ attorney Sidney Powell had nothing but high praise for Sullivan in her Friday piece in the NY Observer,  calling him “a federal judge who has the integrity and fortitude to seek Justice.”

Turns out, Judge Sullivan is the judge who held federal prosecutors in contempt in the case of the unjust indictment against Senator Ted Stevens, which he dismissed.

Emmet G. Sullivan, a graduate of Howard University and Howard Law who was appointed by President Clinton, is one of the heroes of my new book, Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice. Judge Sullivan ordered an independent investigation of the Department of Justice, which revealed its corrupted prosecution of United States Senator Ted Stevens.

In the book, I write, “An experienced trial judge, Sullivan was a distinguished man and widely held in high regard. He was no ordinary federal judge; he had worked hard all his life on several different courts and had been appointed by three presidents representing both political parties. . . . He had great respect for the rule of law and strived to apply it equally and fairly in all cases in his courtroom.”

In the Stevens case, Judge Sullivan publicly upbraided the government lawyers before an overflow courtroom, “In nearly 25 years on the bench, I’ve never seen anything approaching the mishandling and misconduct that I’ve seen in this case. . . . When the government does not meet its obligations to turn over evidence, the system falters.”
