Incredible: AIPAC Crowd Cheers Susan Rice — For Policies the WH Opposes

White House Security advisor Susan Rice received raucous applause at AIPAC today – for mentioning policies the Obama administration actively opposes.

During her speech, when she discussed policies that she claimed were not realistic or attainable, the crowd leaped to their feet and cheered. When she offered the Obama administration’s (supposedly) more realistic (and wiser) alternative, you could hear a pin drop. The barely audible smattering you hear is probably pro-Obama press flacks.

Via NRO:

“We cannot let a totally unachievable ideal stand in the way of a good deal,” she began. “I know that some of you will be urging Congress to insist that Iran forgo its domestic enrichment capacity entirely –”

With that, Rice was cut off for over twenty seconds by raucous applause, as the crowd rose to its feet in approval of a total ban on Iran’s civilian nuclear program. “But as desirable as that would be, it is neither realistic nor achievable!” she finally continued, claiming that European nations would abandon sanctions altogether if that was the goal. Just seconds later, the crowd again turned on Rice. “I know some would argue we should impose sanctions and just walk away, but let’s remember –” she said.  Cue more rowdy cheering, with Rice at first trying to speak over the crowd before raising her arms in exasperation. “My friends, let’s remember that sanctions have never stopped Iran from advancing its program!” she finally finished.

This really is incredible – and mortifying for Susan Rice.

No – Really? Obama Amnesty Will Allow Illegal Immigrants to Vote (Video)

A new revelation about Obama’s executive amnesty has all of Washington wearing their “shock faces.” A giant loophole that no one could have ever foreseen, will allow illegals to vote in American elections.

The Washington Times reported:

President Obama’s temporary deportation amnesty will make it easier for illegal immigrants to improperly register and vote in elections, state elections officials testified to Congress on Thursday, saying that the driver’s licenses and Social Security numbers they will be granted create a major voting loophole.

While stressing that it remains illegal for noncitizens to vote, secretaries of state from Ohio and Kansas said they won’t have the tools to sniff out illegal immigrants who register anyway, ignoring stiff penalties to fill out the registration forms that are easily available at shopping malls, motor vehicle bureaus and in curbside registration drives.

Anyone registering to vote attests that he or she is a citizen, but Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted said mass registration drives often aren’t able to give due attention to that part, and so illegal immigrants will still get through.

Kansas Secretary of State Kris W. Kobach said even some motor vehicle bureau workers automatically ask customers if they want to register to vote, which some noncitizens in the past have cited as their reason for breaking the law to register.

“It’s a guarantee it will happen,” Mr. Kobach said.

Here is Rep. Jim Jordan (R-OH) questioning of Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted about voter fraud, yesterday:

In a House Committee on Oversight and Government Reform joint subcommittee hearing, Rep. Jim Jordan, OH-04, questions Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted about voter fraud, and how President Obama’s executive actions on immigration could further undermine voting integrity.

Katie Pavlich, Townhall: Kansas Secretary of State: Illegal Aliens Registering to Vote is a Massive Problem Nationwide:

During a House Oversight Committee hearing Thursday, Secretaries of State Kris Kobach from Kansas and Jon Husted of Ohio warned that a loophole in President Obama’s executive action on illegal immigration could lead to millions of non-citizens obtaining the ability to vote in U.S. elections.

“I want to bring to your attention my concern that the President’s recent Immigration Accountability Executive Actions will make it more difficult for elections officials to determine if all voters meet the primary standard for voting – U.S. citizenship. I am not here to debate immigration policy or the President’s executive actions. However, I am here to emphatically say that we cannot follow both the federal law and the executive action and ensure the integrity of the elections process without further assistance from Congress and the Obama administration,” Husted said in prepared testimony. “For an estimated four to five million non-citizens, the President’s executive actions provide access to Social Security numbers and driver’s licenses. These are the same documents that federal law requires the states to recognize as valid forms of identification for voter registration. Under federal law, anyone with a valid Social Security number or driver’s license number can register to vote, provided they attest that they are a U.S. citizen. However, there is no way for us to validate this citizenship statement, since under the executive actions previously undocumented non-citizens will have access to the same documents as U.S. citizens. The issue becomes especially complicated in states like Ohio where millions of dollars are spent on third – party voter registration drives where no election official would be present to make clear the eligibility requirements for voting.”

After Meeting With State Dept Officials in DC, Muslim Brotherhood Promptly Declares “Open Jihad” In Egypt

An update to this story - which was disturbing enough – becomes even more troubling:

Via the Washington  Free Beacon:

The Muslim Brotherhood called for “a long, uncompromising jihad” in Egypt just days after a delegation of the Islamist group’s key leaders and allies met with the State Department, according to an official statement released this week.

Just days after a delegation that included two top Brotherhood leaders was hosted at the State Department, the organization released an official statement calling on its supporters to “prepare” for jihad, according to an independent translation of the statement first posted on Tuesday.

The State Department meeting was attended by a deputy assistant secretary for democracy, human rights, and labor and other State Department officials.

The Muslim Brotherhood statement also was issued just two days before a major terror attack Thursday in Egypt’s lawless Sinai region that killed at least 25.

A State Dept flack told the WFB, “We meet with representatives from across the political spectrum in Egypt.”

The Muslim Brotherhood has been designated a Terrorist organization by Egypt, Syria, Russia, UAE, and Saudi Arabia.

Supposedly, this is “an embarrassment” for the State Department, according to “Egypt experts.”

“The fact that the Brotherhood issued its call to jihad two days after its meeting at the State Department will be grist for endless anti-American conspiracy theories about a supposed partnership between Washington and the Brotherhood,” said Eric Trager, a fellow at the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP). “The State Department should have foreseen what an embarrassment this would be.”

The fact that the Obama administration backs radical Islamist groups over stable regimes is embarrassing indeed.

The Obama administration conducted an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood in 2010 and 2011, beginning even before the events known as the “Arab Spring” erupted in Tunisia and in Egypt. The President personally issued Presidential Study Directive 11 (PSD-11) in 2010, ordering an assessment of the Muslim Brotherhood and other “political Islamist” movements, including the ruling AKP in Turkey, ultimately concluding that the United States should shift from its longstanding policy of supporting “stability” in the Middle East and North Africa (that is, support for “stable regimes” even if they were authoritarian), to a policy of backing “moderate” Islamic political movements.

To this day, PSD-11 remains classified, in part because it reveals an embarrassingly naïve and uninformed view of trends in the Middle East and North Africa (Mena) region.

The revelations were made by Al Hewar centre in Washington, DC, which obtained the documents in question.

Through an ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit, thousands of pages of documentation of the US State Department’s dealings with the Muslim Brotherhood are in the process of being declassified and released to the public.

US State Department documents obtained under the FOIA confirm that the Obama administration maintained frequent contact and ties with the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood. At one point, in April 2012, US officials arranged for the public relations director of the Libyan Muslim Brotherhood, Mohammad Gaair, to come to Washington to speak at a conference on “Islamists in Power” hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace.

It’s not a “conspiracy theory” to notice that this administration always come down on the side of Islamists – even over moderate Muslim reformers like the Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi. It’s the absolute truth.

 

Obama Whines About Being “Treated Differently” Because of the Color of His Skin in India

obama_1755936c

Good God, this president is mortifying:

NEW DELHI (AP) – President Barack Obama gently nudged India Tuesday to fulfill its constitution’s pledge to uphold the “dignity of the individual,” drawing on his own experience as a minority in the United States as he closed out a three-day visit to New Delhi.

Obama said that while he has had extraordinary opportunities, “there were moments in my life where I’ve been treated differently because of the color of my skin.” As he touted the importance of religious tolerance, he noted the persistent false rumors that he is a Muslim, not a Christian.

“There have been times where my faith has at times been questioned by people who don’t know me, or they’ve said that I adhere to a different religion, as if that were somehow a bad thing,” Obama said.

He forgot to mention how people judge him because of his “funny name.” Oy.

Yeah, Obama’s faith has been questioned by people who know him to be a pathological liar – someone who will lie about literally anything - including his own mother’s health insurance status when she was battling cancer. Not to mention about a gazillion other things – too numerous to catalog. It’s safe to assume at this point that about 75% of what comes out of the man’s mouth is utter BS.

Would such a man lie about his religious convictions?

By their fruits ye shall know them.

Enough said?

Jack Cashill, WND: YES, OBAMA HAS EXPERIENCED ‘CONSTANT BIAS’

The bias started early. Obama biographer David Mendell tells the reader that Obama “won” a full scholarship to Occidental, but as a bench-warming, B-minus student in his fancy Honolulu prep school Obama had to know what he had done to “win” it.

The bias continued in college. Biographer David Remnick tells us that Obama was an “unspectacular” student in his two years at Columbia and at every stop before that going back to grade school.

A Northwestern University prof who wrote a letter of reference for Obama reinforces the point, telling Remnick, “I don’t think [Obama] did too well in college.” As to Obama’s LSAT scores, Jimmy Hoffa’s body will be unearthed before those are.

How such an indifferent student – he did not graduate from Columbia with any kind of honors – got into a law school whose applicants’ LSAT scores typically track between 98 to 99 percentile and whose GPAs range between 3.8 and 4.0 is a subject Remnick bypasses.

The bias continued in law school. Obama, it seems, did not make the Law Review the old-fashioned way, the way HLR’s first black editor, Charles Houston, did 70 years prior.

To Obama’s good fortune, the HLR had replaced a meritocracy in which editors were elected based on grades with one in which half the editors were chosen through a writing competition.

This competition, the New York Times reported in 1990, was “meant to help insure that minority students became editors of the Law Review.”

If Obama’s entry in the writing competition had begun like this bogus passage from “Audacity of Hope” – “I know what it’s like to have people tell me I can’t do something because of my color and I know the bitter swill of swallowed back anger” – I suspect his odds of being chosen for the Law Review would have improved considerably.

“By the time Barack got to campus, in 1988,” fellow alum Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan would tell Obama biographer David Remnick, “all the talk and the debates were shifting to race.”

No one benefited more from this talk than Obama. In the same spring 1990 term that he would stand for the presidency of the HLR, the Law School found itself embroiled in a nasty racial brouhaha.

 

 

 

DOJ Will Not Charge Officer Wilson With Civil Rights Charges in Ferguson Shooting

George Soros spent $33 million of his own hard earned money, hoping to spur civil action – yet no civil action appears to be forthcoming.

So after many months of stoking the flames of racial division, Eric Holder’s DOJ is quietly preparing a legal memo recommending that no civil rights charges be brought against the white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., who shot and killed Michael Brown.

Nevermind that the last five months of protesting was over nothing – what was the point of all this talk about imposing police reforms on police departments about then? If a grand jury and now the most radical, race-obsessed DOJ in our nation’s history, found  that Officer Wilson did nothing wrong, what exactly needs to be reformed?

Via The New York Times: 

That would close the politically charged case in the shooting death of 18-year-old Michael Brown. The investigation by the F.B.I., which is complete, found no evidence to support civil rights charges against the officer, Darren Wilson, the officials said.

A broader civil rights investigation into allegations of discriminatory traffic stops and excessive force by the Ferguson Police Department remains open, however. That investigation could lead to significant changes at the department, which is overwhelmingly white despite serving a city that is mostly black.

The state authorities concluded their investigation into Mr. Brown’s death in November and similarly recommended no charges.

Attorney General Eric H. Holder Jr., has said that he plans to have it done before leaving office, probably in the next month or two if his successor is confirmed.

You realize of course, that if this uber-racialized DOJ couldn’t bring civil charges against Officer Wilson, there was never any kind of case to begin with.

Awkward and Mortifying: Lurch In Paris

proxy (1)

 

How badly did the Obama administration fumble this week? So bad that the always awkward Lurch was dispatched to France to set things “right.” God help us.

Awkward doesn’t even begin to describe this, via The Daily Mail: He gave France a hug… and a kiss… and a VERY awkward rendition of ‘You’ve Got a Friend': Grovelling Kerry cuddles up to Hollande and even flies in James Taylor to make up for terror march snub:

A grovelling John Kerry hugged and kissed French president Francois Hollande in a show of contrition after nobody important from the White House joined a solidarity march in the wake of the terror attack on Paris.

The Secretary of State even brought back-up for his visit in the form of singer James Taylor, who patched up the United States’s oldest diplomatic relationship with a rendition of ‘You’ve got a friend’.

Arriving at the presidential Elysée Palace, Kerry reached out his hands for Hollande, embraced him closely, then appeared to kiss him on the cheek.

Could this administration be any more mortifying?

Reactions from aghast Twitter users were swift.

 

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.
