Obama: ‘When We Make Mistakes, We Admit Them’

Barack Obama

Remember how I said, last week that “we’ve reached a point in Obama’s presidency where he really seems to enjoy mortifying average Americans”?

He’s basically trolling us now with outlandish executive actions – (knowing Republicans are too timid to do anything about them), race-baiting,  and telling increasingly ridiculous whoppers that he knows no one believes but his most loyal drones.

With that in mind — this happened Tuesday evening:

Obama, responding to the Democrat Senate report on CIA enhanced interrogations:

“When we make mistakes, we admit them.” said Obama.

#Um

By “we,” President Smidgen, of course, was referring to “the previous administration.”

Obama doesn’t make mistakes.

He only uses the first person singular when exalting himself . The One uses “I” me and myself  profusely when taking credit for something, as in – “I” got Osama Bin Laden.

But he always uses the royal “we” when talking about failures, or controversies that can be blamed on someone else. So when he’s talking about the nation’s past sins, and arrogance (as he likes to remind us) – he uses “we.”

If a failure reaches horrific levels of  FUBAR – as is happening in Iraq because he pulled the troops out too early – the royal “he” is used. Even though he announced he was doing it (going against the advice of his military commanders), and bragged about “ending the War in Iraq” for over two years – it was Maliki’s fault we didn’t have a Status of Forces agreement. “He” did it.

Yep. This SCOAMF of a president sure likes to admit mistakes.

Tampa was limited by the 130 characters – but you get the idea.

I have a dream….that we’ll someday reach a point as a nation where even the drones can’t take his bullshit any longer.  Obama will give a speech, and people will cut off his mic so no one has to hear him anymore. And it will be the nation’s secret. SHHHH. Don’t tell him, you guys. Just let him drone on and on, in sotto voce at times so he can display his  magnanimous empathy for us “folks.” Dare to imagine. That mad scramble for the remote to push the mute button or change the channel will be a thing of the past.

He can still have his beloved court photographer take pictures of him everywhere he goes, but no one else will want to. They’ll have to pay SEIU members 20 dollars each and a boxed lunch to fill the seats so they can pretend to listen to  his permanent campaign speeches. And what wonders will the gifted orator grace us with? Another race speech? $10 an hour minimum wage?  Amnesty? Climate change fear-mongering? ObamaCare….?.  Doesn’t matter - we turned his damn mic off.

Good job, Obama. Now go away, and let the grown-ups take over and try to reverse the damage.

Ferguson Follies Continued: ‘What Is Wrong With This Country?!’

congress-members-hands

For the second day in a row, an incensed Joe Scarborough excoriated left-wing race-baiters for using the ‘hands up’ gesture to protest the Grand Jury decision on the Michael Brown shooting.  On the Tuesday broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” the frustrated host said, “that’s cool to suggest that St. Louis police officers in the town – probably a lot who go to the games and watch the games  – that’s cool for them to suggest that St. Louis cops shoot young black men who had their hands up in the air, when we know that that was a lie?” It’s a lie. And what was that gesture on Capitol Hill? More people like going, ‘It doesn’t matter whether it’s the truth or not, I’m going to suggest cops shoot people with their hands up in the air.’ What is wrong with this country? What is wrong with these people? What is wrong with these elected officials? They know it’s a lie. They know the cops didn’t shoot him with his hands in the air. They know it’s a lie and they are doing this on that Capitol floor?”

Scarborough took heat from the left for his rant, yesterday, via Twitchy:  Tweeters angry at MSNBC’s ‘stupida*s’ Joe Scarobrough over ‘racist rant’ at Ferguson protesters, media 

Get the popcorn. On yesterday’s “Morning Joe,” host Joe Scarborough went off on Michael Brown supporters and the media covering the protests declaring, “I have sat here quietly and listened to BS being spewed all over this network and all over other networks. I can’t take it anymore.”

But it’s this quote from his segment, via Business Insider, that’s the most interesting as Scarborough is accusing his guests of hypocrisy by saying one thing about the protests, ruling on air and another in private:

“You know what pisses me off too is I have people around this set all the time. They let me say what I say on set and they sit and stare at me, slack-jawed,” he said. “They’re afraid to say anything on the air, even though they know it’s BS. People [are] saying one thing when the camera’s on and then saying something completely different when the camera gets turned off, because they’re somehow afraid they’ll be called racist if they tell the truth.”

One of those people might be Washington Post columnist Eugene Robinson, who wouldn’t admit that Michael Brown didn’t have his arms up no matter how hard Scarborough tried to pry the truth out of him.

Mediaite: MSNBC ‘Hands Up’ Segment with Eugene Robinson Gets Awkward:

“I don’t believe there’s anything in the record, certainly not in the forensic evidence, that precludes the possibility that he had his hands up at some point when he was approaching the officer,” Robinson said.

“That’s an awfully low standard,” cohost Joe Scarborough replied. “There’s also no evidence that doesn’t suggest a flying saucer from Venus swooped over all of them. There’s no evidence that it’s precluded, Gene. I’m not being difficult. I’m just saying the truth actually does matter.”

The Missouri Torch: Nixon’s Failure to Lead a “Deep, Deep Disgrace”:

Inquiring minds want to know: why were the National Guard not deployed to Ferguson, Missouri in the wake of the Grand Jury decision not to indict Officer Wilson? Where was Governor Nixon while the town burned? There are no good answers.

Moral of the story: Democrats can not be trusted to handle any crisis competently.

Gateway Pundit: Local Officials Are Investigating if Mike Brown’s Step-Father Incited Riot:

At least 18 businesses were torched to the ground and several more were looting and vandalized.

Now authorities are investigating whether to indict Louis Head for inciting a riot.
CNN reported:

Authorities are investigating whether Michael Brown’s stepfather intended to incite a riot last week when he urged a crowd in Ferguson, Missouri, to “Burn this bitch down” after the grand jury’s decision was announced, the city’s police chief said Tuesday.

No charges have been filed against Louis Head in the incident, but police have interviewed people who know Head and who were with him November 24, the day a prosecutor announced that Officer Darren Wilson (who has since resigned) would not be indicted in the August 9 shooting of Michael Brown, Police Chief Tom Jackson said.

The Conversation: Eyewitness: Before St. Louis Hammer Attack, ‘Black People’ Ran Up And Down Street Yelling, ‘Kill The White People’

At the beginning of the one minute video, the woman who recorded the scene, expressed her profound and at times profane disgust with what had just happened in her neighborhood.

“Arrest them all,” she sneered. “F*ck this sh*t.”

At the 45-second mark, she said, “And, of course, it’s a white kid, right after black people running up and down the street saying, ‘Eff the white people, kill the white people.’ This is what we have.”

Conservative Treehouse: Saint Louis Officials Blame Victim Zemir Begic For His Own Brutal Murder: “We think it was wrong place, wrong time”…

In response to the attack, a spokesperson for the Saint Louis police department released the following statement:

“We think it was wrong place, wrong time,” police spokeswoman Schron Jackson said.

Whoa, apparently, there are rules for safe transit in Saint Louis which both victims, Mr Dzananovic and Mr. Begic, violated.  Hence, they subjected themselves to the “wrong place, wrong time” murder justification explanation.

The RightScoop: Newt on Ferguson: “Obama should be saying to people, ‘don’t rob stores and don’t disobey police'”:

Newt told Wolf Blitzer today that Obama shouldn’t go meet with the Michael Brown family and that he’s not being honest about what happened to Michael Brown in Ferguson. He says that what Obama should be telling people is not to rob stores, not to push around store clerks have your size and not to disobey police.

Obama Told Ferguson Race Hustlers At WH Meeting: ‘Stay On Course’

xmike-brown-mob.jpg.pagespeed.ic.uMYlFmmUru

The term Stay the courseas popularized by Presidents George W. Bush, George H. W. Bush, and Ronald Reagan means to pursue an objective regardless of any obstacles or criticism in times of war. The opposite term, “cut and run” is an accurate descriptor for Obama’s war time strategy. But what Obama lacks as a Commander in Chief, he more than makes up for as Community Organizer in Chief.

At a White House meeting with a group of race hustlers one day after the midterm shellacking, the president used the phrase “stay on course” in reference to the racial battle that is being waged in one of our nation’s cities.

Attendees at that meeting included Al Sharpton,  NAACP president Cornell Brooks, National Urban League president Marc Morial.

At the time, a White House official gave a bland statement regarding the meeting, saying that it “included a discussion of ObamaCare implementation, education, and criminal justice issues.”

“The president also highlighted how we are looking forward to working with the leaders over the next two years to advance these and other critical issues facing the country,” the official said.

In Sunday’s New York Times, more details emerged.

According to the Rev. Al Sharpton, who has appeared frequently in St. Louis with the Brown family and delivered a speech at Mr. Brown’s funeral, Mr. Obama “was concerned about Ferguson staying on course in terms of pursuing what it was that he knew we were advocating. He said he hopes that we’re doing all we can to keep peace.”

Yes certainly – let’s do all we can to keep the peace even as fellow organizer Lisa Fithian is called in to help organize the protests and create chaos.

The regime’s extortion racket has kicked in – as the threat of a race war in Ferguson Missouri looms,  some definite objectives are being pursued by the racial grievance industry.

Protest leaders said wholesale change was ultimately what they were demanding, though not all agreed on what that meant. Some called for the removal of the Ferguson police chief or the entire department. Others said they want the police to wear cameras; civilian review boards for all police shootings; or a requirement that ethnic and racial makeup of police departments match the communities they serve.

“It must be changing how police and citizens relate to one another,” said Michael T. McPhearson, the co-chairman of the Don’t Shoot Coalition. “We’re calling for police accountability, police transparency, changing how the police do their work. If there’s an indictment or if there’s not an indictment, we still have that work to do.”

Via Katie Pavlich: Townhall: EXCLUSIVE: In Scathing Letter to Obama, Former FBI Assistant Director Slams Holder as “Chief Among Antagonists” in Ferguson:

Former FBI Assistant Director and Law Enforcement Legal Defense Fund President Ron Hosko sends “a scathing letter to President Obama detailing the damage done to the relationship between law enforcement and DOJ over the past six years.”

“The hyper-politicization of justice issues has made it immeasurably more difficult for police officers to simply do their jobs. The growing divide between the police and the people – perhaps best characterized by protesters in Ferguson, Mo., who angrily chanted, “It’s not black or white. It’s blue!” – only benefits of members of a political class seeking to vilify law enforcement for other societal failures. This puts our communities at greater risk, especially the most vulnerable among us,” Hosko wrote in the letter exclusively obtained by Townhall. “Your attorney general, Eric Holder, is chief among the antagonists. During his tenure as the head of the Department of Justice, Mr. Holder claims to have investigated twice as many police and police departments as any of his predecessors. Of course, this includes his ill-timed decision to launch a full investigation into the Ferguson Police Department at the height of racial tensions in that community, throwing gasoline on a fire that was already burning. Many officers were disgusted by such a transparent political maneuver at a time when presidential and attorney general leadership could have calmed a truly chaotic situation.”

‘Bout time someone said it.

Sens. Cruz and Lee: AG Nominee Should Say Whether She Approves of Executive Amnesty (Updated)

download (1)

Obama’s pick of Loretta Lynch to replace Eric Holder (the most corrupt Attorney General in American history) is surprisingly uncontroversial. She is respected by Republicans and Democrats alike and has no known scandals in her background. If there is anything about her that would be disqualifying – it hasn’t been discovered yet. 

But Republicans plan to ask her a question in which a wrong answer would be considered disqualifying.

Via Breitbart News:

Cruz, Lee, incoming Senate Budget Committee Chairman Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL), and incoming Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, each said before the election that Obama’s choice to replace Holder must denounce Obama’s planned executive amnesty.

McConnell said that it should be a “condition” of the nominee’s confirmation that they oppose executive amnesty.

Today Sens. Ted Cruz, R-TX, and Mike Lee, R-UT, released the following statement in regards to the president’s nomination of U.S. Attorney Loretta Lynch.

“President Obama’s Attorney General nominee deserves fair and full consideration of the United States Senate, which is precisely why she should not be confirmed in the lame duck session of Congress by senators who just lost their seats and are no longer accountable to the voters. The Attorney General is the President’s chief law enforcement officer. As such, the nominee must demonstrate full and complete commitment to the law. Loretta Lynch deserves the opportunity to demonstrate those qualities, beginning with a statement whether or not she believes the President’s executive amnesty plans are constitutional and legal.”

UPDATE:

I spoke too soon. It has been discovered that Obama’s pick to replace Eric Holder is indeed a race-baiting fellow traveler. We were wrong to imagine Obama was capable of appointing a straight shooter.

Should have realized after seeing this, Did Al Sharpton Just Pick The Next Attorney General?

Via Pundit Press: Obama AG Nominee Lynch: Southern Schools Use Zero Tolerance Policies to Send Minorities to Prison:

In a speech given at Long Beach earlier this year, President Obama’s new nominee for Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, specifically called out voter ID laws as racist and schools as disproportionately using zero tolerance policies against minorities. The video was uncovered by Pundit Press.

The remarks came near the end of a long speech, explaining the examples that Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and Nelson Mandela set for people.

Ms. Lynch then began talking about the inequities that she sees in the United States, first covering the fact that she see voter ID laws as legislation aimed to disenfranchise minorities.

Disturbing Halloween Display of Black Family Being Lynched Taken Down After Complaints

hanging-1-620x400

A shocking Halloween display at a house located on the military base in Fort Campbell, Ky. turned some heads, earlier this week. It was taken down after Ft. Campbell Public Affairs received a report of the “offensive” display.

A ClarksvilleNow.com reader sent a photo of the display, which shows what appears to be a black family hanging from a tree in a yard on Litwin St.

The child in the display has a knife in its back and one of the figures holds a sign that is not legible in the photo.

Fort Campbell Public Affairs said they are aware of the display and have since had it taken down from the yard.

Reportedly, the occupant removed the display after being made aware of the “concerns of the community.”

According to Brendalyn Carpenter, a Public Affairs official, “it was her understanding that the display was not intended to be offensive.” She said the occupant,  whose race and sex were not specified, did extend an apology about the decorations.

It’s hard to imagine what would possess someone to create a display like that. It’s harder still to imagine how someone would not know it was offensive and upsetting.

“Displays of an offensive nature are not reflective of Army values and the family-friendly environment provided for employees and residents of the Fort Campbell community,” Carpenter said.

The point of this holiday, as I see it, is to confront the scary things in life by making fun of them and then getting wasted on sugar. But every October, local news stations across the country comes up with a story about someone’s Halloween display causing neighbors to complain because they’ve “gone too far.” This year’s winner comes from Pittsburgh, where a display that includes baby dolls with bullet holes in their heads is, um, what? There to encourage trick-or-treating? C’mon, dude. It’s a little much. Adult corpses are great. Dead babies, not so much.

That guy in Pittsburgh is seriously demented…

 

No Apologies, And No One To Be Held Accountable For “Chickensh*t” Comment

The guessing game has begun as to who in the Obama Regime told Obama toadie Jeffrey Goldberg Netanyahu was recalcitrant, myopic, reactionary, obtuse, blustering, pompous, “Aspergery” and chickenshit. 

On that front, it’s worth noting that the person being repeatedly being called “chickenshit” by  anonymous officials volunteered for the Israeli Defense Force, saw combat, and was the leader of an elite special-forces unit deployed on numerous missions, including the freeing of hijacked Sabena Flight in 1972, where he was shot. Granted, this might not be as courageous as hopping the Amtrak from Delaware to DC each day or rallying the troops at a fundraiser in Greenwich, but God knows we can’t all be heroes.

The worst part of the insults was the gloating over how the Regime pressured and bullied Israel into living with a nuclear Iran.

This official agreed that Netanyahu is a ‘chickenshit’ on matters related to the comatose peace process, but added that he’s also a ‘coward’ on the issue of Iran’s nuclear threat. The official said the Obama administration no longer believes that Netanyahu would launch a preemptive strike on Iran’s nuclear facilities in order to keep the regime in Tehran from building an atomic arsenal. ‘It’s too late for him to do anything. Two, three years ago, this was a possibility. But ultimately he couldn’t bring himself to pull the trigger. It was a combination of our pressure and his own unwillingness to do anything dramatic. Now it’s too late.’

Now, it’s too late. They’re actually proud of themselves. Do these children even know what they have done?

The Regime is not denying the story is true, nor are they interested in punishing the person or persons who have characterized the Israeli Prime Minister in insulting and scatological terms. Nor are they interested in apologizing to Netanyahu or Israel for the insults.

They seem to be pleased that the story was leaked.

Via Truth Revolt:

Earnest was asked if he had yet been able to determine if in fact the quote was even accurate. He has not, but that didn’t stop him from making sure that everyone knows that Goldberg is super reliable and knows lots of people, so it probably is.

CNN’s Jim Acosta: Have you been able to determine whether or not that comment was even made?

Earnest: I have not, Jim. I don’t say that to question the reporting of somebody like Mr. Goldberg, who obviously is a very well-respected journalist here in Washington. He’s somebody that has a lot of sources inside the administration. So, I didn’t come here seeking to undermine his reporting.

He was also asked if the White House has any intention of looking into who might have said this and punishing them in some way, as they have done before. Nope.
