'It looks like it may be a terrible tragedy': Obama makes only a 40-second mention of Malaysian plane crash feared to have killed Americans before his jokey 16-minute transport speech

  • Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 crashed in eastern Ukraine on Thursday, killing all 295 passengers on board
  • President Obama said his national security team is working on identifying the U.S. citizens – and then launched into jokes and 16 minutes of prepared remarks
  • Twitter erupted with digital eye-rolls at Obama's curt mention of the 'tragedy' that the Ukrainian government quickly called a 'criminal case'
  • House Speaker John Boehner offered a solemn statement, saying 'many innocents were killed today. It is horrifying.'

President Barack Obama provoked fury in the U.S. on Thursday by casually devoting less than a minute to the deaths of 295 people aboard a Malaysian airliner, as he began an often jokey 16-minute speech about the need to expand America’s transportation infrastructure.

There are no confirmed American dead and the White House issued a statement on Thursday evening which said they were still seeking any 'information to determine whether there were any American citizens on board'.

An earlier Reuters report claimed that it was feared that as many as 23 U.S. citizens had perished.

Obama declared in Wilmington, Delaware that 'it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy,' but not before enthusiastically declaring that 'it is wonderful to be back in Delaware.'

'Before I begin, obviously the world is watching reports of a downed passenger jet near the Russia-Ukraine border. And it looks like it may be a terrible tragedy. Right now we’re working to determine whether there were American citizens on board. That is our first priority.'

'And I've directed my national security team to stay in close contact with the Ukrainian governemnt. The United States will offer any assistance we can to help determine what happened and why. And as a country, our thoughts and prayers are with all the families and passengers, wherever they call home.

Obama then jarringly quickly returned to his prepared remarks. 

'I want to thank Jeremie for that introduction' he said. 'Give Jeremie a big round of applause.'

'It is great to be in the state that gave us Joe Biden. We’ve got actually some better-looking Bidens with us here today.  We've got Beau and his wife, Hallie, are here. Give them a big round of applause. We love them.

 
American victims? Obama spoke to Ukrainian President Poroshenko while he flew on Air Force One between Wilmington, Delaware and New York City but neither the state department nor Obama revealed if Americans were aboard MH17

Obama also acknowledged the presence of Treasury Secretary Jack Lew with a joke.

'Jack Lew’s signature is actually on your money,' he said, 'although it's kind of illegible. We teased him when he first became treasury secretary that he was going to have to fix his signature a little bit because it looked just like a caterpillar running along the bottom.' 

From there he launched into a 16-minute speech about transportation projects he wants Republicans to fund, complaining bitterly about their objections to his end-runs around the federal legislature.

'When I have a chance to help communities like Wilmington, I’m going to do it,' he said, as cable news networks focused on the lives lost in Eastern Ukraine.

'That’s when my administration takes these executive actions, when Congress won’t act. And so far, the only response we’ve gotten from the Republicans is a lawsuit. They're suing me for doing my job, instead of going ahead and doing their job.'

'That's disappointing,' Obama said. 'It’s a political stunt.'

Twitter erupted, with thousands of users expressing emotions ranging from disappointment to disgust.

Former CNN host Piers Morgan reacted with his typical barbs.

'President Obama massively dropped the ball just now,' Morgan tweeted. '23 Americans killed and he says "it looks like a terrible tragedy" then back to jokes?'

'I agree,' responded singer Josh Groban. 'Bad prep. I was shocked.'

National Review reporter Charles Cooke tweeted: 'Shorter Obama: 'Something awful has happened with a plane. It’s awful. Awful. Republicans are bastards for not funding new airports".'

'STILL SEEKING ANY INFORMATION': THE WHITE HOUSE PRESS OFFICE STATEMENT IN FULL ON THE MALAYSIAN AIRLINES DISASTER

The United States is shocked by the downing of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17, and we offer our deep condolences to all those who lost loved ones on board.  We continue to seek information to determine whether there were any American citizens on board.

It is critical that there be a full, credible, and unimpeded international investigation as quickly as possible.  We urge all concerned – Russia, the pro-Russian separatists, and Ukraine – to support an immediate cease-fire in order to ensure safe and unfettered access to the crash site for international investigators and in order to facilitate the recovery of remains. The role of international organizations – such as the United Nations and the OSCE in Ukraine – may be particularly relevant for this effort, and we will be in touch with affected nations and our partners in these organizations in the coming hours and days to determine the best path forward.  In the meantime, it is vital that no evidence be tampered with in any way and that all potential evidence and remains at the crash site are undisturbed.  The United States remains prepared to contribute immediate assistance to any international investigation, including through resources provided by the NTSB and the FBI.

While we do not yet have all the facts, we do know that this incident occurred in the context of a crisis in Ukraine that is fueled by Russian support for the separatists, including through arms, materiel, and training.  This incident only highlights the urgency with which we continue to urge Russia to immediately take concrete steps to de-escalate the situation in Ukraine and to support a sustainable cease-fire and path toward peace that the Ukrainian government has consistently put forward.

'His distance from reality is just bizarre,' said another.

Daniel Hannan, the British member of Europe's parliament who has rankled liberals in a series of American speaking tours, tweeted his own disgust.

'Listening to Obama's statement [on] the airline tragedy, my mind went back to Reagan 31 years ago,' he wrote.

'How America's leaders have shrunk.'

Obama finished his speech by saying 'Let’s build some bridges. Let’s build some roads. God bless America.'

Matt Viser, a Boston Globe reporter on the scene, tweeted a devastating reaction.

'Obama, in sum: A plane crashed. It may be tragic. We're trying to see if US citizens were on board. Hey, great to be in Delaware!' he wrote.

The president's next stop after Wilmington was New York City, where he headlines a Democratic Party fundraiser Thursday evening. Tickets for the cozy event go for as much as $32,400.

News of the plane crash reached the White House before Obama left for Delaware on Thursday morning. He ignored a question, shouted by a reporter as he departed, asking what he knew about the ill-fated Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777.

Business Insider reported that the Kremlin's official description of a Thursday morning phone call between Obama and Russian president Vladimir Putin said Obama learned of the crash from him.

House Speaker John Boehner released a brief statement that focused exclusively on the plane crash without combining it with domestic policy.

'Many innocents were killed today. It is horrifying, and we await the facts,' he said. 'Right now, we should all take a moment to reflect, count our blessings, and convey our prayers to the loved ones of the victims.'

Arizona Republican Sen. Jon McCain reacted to the crash with deep-seated anger.

'It's an outrageous and incredible act of terrorism,' he said, according to Roll Call. 'People [should] be held responsible, and not only the people directly responsible, but indirectly,'

Later on MSNBC he told host Andrea Mitchell that 'if it is the result of either separatist or Russian actions mistakenly believing this was a Ukrainian war plane, I think there’s going to be hell to pay – and there should be.'

Vice President Joe Biden spoke to Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko to offer U.S. assistance to help determine what happened in crash, the White House said.

President Obama also spoke with Poroshenko, and with Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak while he was aboard Air Force One.

White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest told reporters late on Thursday that Obama spoke with Secretary of State John Kerry when he arrived in New York to discuss the plane crash, as well as Israel's ground offensive in the Gaza strip.

'Afterward,' Earnest said, 'the president convened a secure call with senior members of his national security team ... The president was briefed on our ongoing efforts to support the Ukrainian government and a prompt international investigation into what took place.'

CIA Director John Brennan, White House Chief of Staff Denis McDonough, Principal Deputy Director of National Intelligence Stephanie O'Sullivan, Deputy National Security Adviser Lisa Monaco and Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes all took part.

Malaysia Airlines tweeted Thursday that it lost contact with the flight as it was traveling from Amsterdam to Kuala Lumpur over Ukrainian airspace.

A Ukrainian official said the plane had been shot down as it flew over the country.

Both the Ukrainian government and the pro-Russia separatists it is fighting in the region denied shooting down any plane. The fate of the 280 passengers and crew was not immediately known.

Anton Gerashenko, an adviser to Ukraine's interior minister, said on his Facebook page the plane was flying at an altitude of 10,000 meters (33,000 feet). He said it was hit by a missile fired from a Buk launcher, which can fire missiles up to an altitude of 22,000 meters (72,000 feet).

The Donetsk region government said a plane crashed Thursday near a village called Grabovo, which it said is currently under the control of armed pro-Russian separatists.

But Poroshenko said his country's armed forces didn't shoot at any airborne targets.

'We do not exclude that this plane was shot down, and we stress that the Armed Forces of Ukraine did not take action against any airborne targets,' he said. 'We are sure that those who are guilty in this tragedy will be held responsible.'

Separatist leader Andrei Purgin told The Associated Press that he was certain that Ukrainian troops had shot the plane down but gave no explanation or proof for his statement.

Malaysia Airlines said on its Twitter feed that it 'has lost contact of MH17 from Amsterdam. The last known position was over Ukrainian airspace.'

It was the second time that a Malaysia Airlines plane was lost in less than six months. Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 disappeared in March while en route from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing. It has not been found, but the search has been concentrated in the Indian Ocean far west of Australia.

There have been disputes over planes being shot down earlier in the region.

On Wednesday evening, a Ukrainian fighter jet was shot down by an air-to-air missile from a Russian plane, Ukrainian authorities said Thursday, adding to what Kiev says is mounting evidence that Moscow is directly supporting the separatist insurgents.

Security Council spokesman Andrei Lysenko said the pilot of the Sukhoi-25 jet hit by the air-to-air missile was forced to bail after his jet was shot down.

Pro-Russia rebels, meanwhile, claimed responsibility for strikes Wednesday on two Ukrainian Sukhoi-25 jets. The Ukrainian Defense Ministry said the second jet was hit by a portable surface-to-air missile, but added the pilot was unscathed and managed to land his plane safely

Moscow denies Western charges that is supporting the separatists or sowing unrest in its neighbor. The Russian Defense Ministry couldn't be reached for comment Thursday about the Ukrainian jet being shot down.

fume 1What a week it’s been as liberal absurdity has reached a new high.

First, the Dictator goes down to Texas but REFUSES to visit the border where ILLEGALS are POURING in.

Then, yesterday, as the world burned…our greatest ally, Israel, began their ground war against the Gaza terrorists AND a Malaysian PASSENGER jet was BLOWN OUT OF THE SKY BY RUSSIAN REBELS…There was Obama…FUND RAISISING AGAIN…This time in NY…telling jokes and posing for photo ops…NOT SEEMING TO GIVE A DAMN that 23 Americans might be among the dead…

And in between it all…his town liar, Josh Earnest told the press that BECAUSE of Obama…”THE WORLD IS MORE…TRANQUIL!!!”

If, by “more tranquil” he means that “THE WHOLE WORLD IS GOING TO HELL IN A HAND BASKET” then yeah…I suppose the world IS more tranquil.

We could all use a few laughs about now…don’t you think?

Today is FRIDAY and…

I’m fuming.

Well isn’t this convenient?

The Dictator’s Department of Injustice is now investigating how the Dictator’s minions in the IRS “lost” all those emails and hard drives that could well have provided direct evidence of the Dictator’s direct involvement in the targeting scandal.

Now what do you suppose they’re gonna find?

I’M sure…after a complete and thorough investigation…the derpwads at DOJ will conclude there was “NOT A SMIDGEON OF CORRUPTION” at the IRS GESTAPO!!!

What else should we expect…after all…

 

Just ask ANY feather-farting fox to investigate the hen house massacre and see what sort of answers you get.fox 1

Better yet…the next time the IRS comes knocking at YOUR door…just tell em that your hard drive, with all your last 7 years of financial records on it just MYSTERIOUSLY CRASHED…that you tried your level best to retrieve the info but…golly gee…you couldn’t so…YOU RECYCLED that hard drive.

When they haul your ass to court…PLEAD THE FIFTH and be on your merry way.

Well…WE’RE being told that WE have to accept that so…why shouldn’t THEY???

Ever hear of April Sands? SHE resigned from the FEDERAL ELECTIONS COMMISSION last spring and ADMITTED to violating the Hatch Act…campaigning for Obama using taxpayer dollars and while on the clock…and guess what???

THE FEC NOW CLAIMS THAT HER HARD DRIVE CRASHED AND…THEY “RECYCLED” IT TOO!!!

So much for THAT investigation into a federal crime committed by yet ANOTHER Obama ass-kissing minion and I’ll bet NOBODY saw THAT one coming huh?

It’s like a bunch of 8 year olds who don’t want to go to school because their BOOK REPORT is due and THEN they tell their TEACHERS that the DOG ATE THEIR HOMEWORK!!!

Forget the THIRD WORLD…what WE’VE got is a 3rd GRADE DICTATOR!!!

Fuming.

fox 2This next one definitely goes into the…EXCUUUUUUSE me file.

It seems that some nameless woman was going through Carmine Cervellino’s tool box in Thomaston Connecticut the other day when she found some…pot. She called the cops and they came out to the house but did NOT arrest the 49 year old Cervellino.

So…The woman, exhibiting what I can only imagine to be a liberal mentality…left the house only to return later in the day…THE 4TH OF JULY…and what did she FIND???

Now…hold on…this is going to be graphic…

SHE FOUND A WATERMELON…ON THE KITCHEN COUNTER…ON THE 4TH OF JULY…WITH A KNIFE STICKING OUT OF IT!!!!!

Ummmmmm…dear God say it isn’t so.

THEN…CERVELLINO came back INTO the kitchen and did the unthinkable…

HE STARTED…CARVING…THE WATERMELON…on the 4th of July.FOX 3

Well…MISS PANTIES IN A WAD…CALLED THE COPS AGAIN and THIS time…they DID arrest the man.

Yep…having seen quite enough and being as they WERE there to PROTECT but not SERVE…watermelon on the 4th of July…THEY ARRESTED CARMINE CERVELLINO for the HIGH CRIME of…

Wait for it…

THREATENING AND DISORDERLY CONDUCT CONNECTED TO…THE PASSIVE-AGGRESSIVE STABBING…OFA WATERMELON…on the 4th of July.

It’s a damn good thing they were able to stop the madness before he committed malicious grilling and serial drinking of an adult beverage.

Carmine Cervellino was released on $500 dollar bond howewer, there is no word at this time as to whether or not a restraining order has been placed to keep him at LEAST 100 feet from the produce section of his neighborhood grocery store.

I’m fuming.

FOX 4And finally…

What in the wide, wide WORLD of incomprehensible liberal blather???

Crusty, dusty senate socialist Harry Reid stood on the floor a couple of days ago and stated, UNBELIEVABLY, that…

“The border is secure.”

Ummmmmm…oh, really?

“THE BORDER IS…SECURE???”

Apparently, idiots of a feather flock together because, Reid claims HE got HIS information from senator, Martin Trevor Heinrich whose state, New Mexico, has a few miles of border it shares with Mexico and, according to Crusty Reid…”Martin Heinrich talked to the caucus today. He’s a border state senator. He said he can say without any equivocation the border is secure.”

WITHOUT EQUIVOCATION???

Do these MORONS really believe that WE are as STUMP STUPID as THEY ARE???

Here’s a little breaking news for the woefully, terminally pathologically lying liberals…

FOX 5OUR BORDER IS ANYTHING BUT SECURE and as proof…I offer TENS OF THOUSANDS OF MEXICAN AND CENTRAL AMERICAN ANKLE BITING ILLEGAL  ALIEN CHILDREN who are either being housed in HOLDING facilities where they sleep under mylar blankets LOOKING LIKE UNATTENDED BAKED POTATO HEADS or are being SMUGGLED AND DISPERSED THROUGHOUT THE COUNTRY by the OBAMA REGIME!!!

There are ALSO tens of thousands of ADULT…ILLEGAL ALIENS streaming across our southern border AND THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NO END TO THE INVASION IN SIGHT!!!

Our southern border is SO damn secure…WE’RE BEING INVADED BY UNARMED 4 TO 14 YEAR OLDS!!!!

And it gets even MORE absurd.

THOSE LITTLE HISPANIC SPUDS ARE COSTING WE THE TAXPAYERS ANYWHERE BETWEEN $250 to $1000 DOLLARS PER DAY…TO ILLEGALLY HARBOR which begs the question…

FOX 6WHAT IN THE WASTE OF MONEY HELL ARE WE FEEDING THOSE CRIMINALS?????

What we’re talking about here is up to…$30,000 bucks…PER MONTH…PER BED WETTING INVADER!!!

Are you KIDDING ME???

THE MEDIAN INCOME…THE AMOUNT EARNED BY THE AVERAGE AMERICAN IS…$50,000…PER YEAR…AND WE’RE FLUSHING UP TO $30,000 BUCKS…PER MONTH…PER ILLEGAL ALIEN SQUIRT…DOWN THE “UNEQUIVOCALLY SECURE” BORDER TOILET???

Do you have any idea how many TREAD MILLS…FOR SHRIMP…we could buy with that kinda scratch???

Let’s do a little math on this…and let’s do it WITHOUT using the GOVERNMENT INDOCTRINATION COMMON CORE CURRICULUM shall we?

So far, we have been invaded by 50,000 ILLEGAL ALIEN CHILDREN and, at a cost of up to $1000.00 PER DAY…PER CHILD…what Harry Reid has deemed to be our SECURE SOUTHERN BORDER is costing We the Taxpayers…A STUNNING…$1.5…BILLION…DOLLARS…PER MONTH and by official estimates…THERE WILL BE ANOTHER…50,000 OF THESE INVADERS POURING OVER WHAT USED TO BE OUR SOUTHERN BORDER…BY THE END OF THIS FISCAL YEAR!!!!!

FOX 7Based on numbers compiled by the Department of Agriculture, a government agency run by pencil pushing yahoos with nothing better to do…it costs the garden variety American CITIZEN about $782.41 per month to raise an AMERICAN CITIZEN child from BIRTH to the age of 18 years so…why, pray tell…does it cost up to $30,000 BUCKS…PER MONTH to HOUSE AND FEED…A DAMN ILLEGAL ALIEN CHILD???

God forbid one of the mini invaders LOSES A TOOTH…AND THE GOVERNMENT TOOTH FAIRY COMES FOR A VISIT…from the looks of things…A SINGLE ILLEGAL MOLAR IS GOING TO GO FOR SOMETHING IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF AN IVY LEAGUE EDUCATION…AN ESTATE IN THE HAMPTONS…A YACHT AND A LAMBORGHINI!!!!!

But there’s ol’ Harry…”I WON’T LET THE FACTS GET I THE WAY OF MY PROPAGANDA” Reid…telling us ALL that “THE BORDER IS SECURE!!!”

AT THIS POINT…THAT’S LIKE SAYING THE TITANIC IS…WITHOUT ANY EQUIVOCATION”…UNSINKABLE!!!”

My friends and fellow Patriots…

I AM FUMING!!!!!!!

DOJ Claims Judge Who Trashed ‘Made Up Plot’ Should Be Removed For Being ‘Hostile’ To The Gov’t
Category: Anti-American
Tags: Holder DOJ racism media corruption control left progressives communists anti-American

By Mike Masnick via TechDirt

from the because-the-doj-can't-lose dept

The self-assured nature of federal prosecutors can be quite insane. We've talked many times in the past about how the criminal justice system is completely rigged against anything remotely looking like fairness. From grand juries to plea bargains to sentencing guidelines, the entire system is designed to make anyone who enters it presumed guilty until their spirit is crushed and destroyed. In the last few years we've noted an even more disturbing trend: law enforcement creating their own plots, in which they lure (often gullible or marginalized) individuals into a convoluted criminal "plot" in which nearly all of the other players are fellow law enforcement folks (or informants). They then build up this big plot... wait until it's about to go off (knowing it'll never actually happen) and then arrest those they lured into it. It has happened over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. Courts have found that this is technically not "entrapment," even though it sure appears to come close to it.

That's why we were quite happy to see a federal judge finally call out one of these questionable plots. Earlier this year, we wrote about Judge Otis Wright (whose name you may recall from the beatdown he gave Team Prenda) calling out one of the ATF's homegrown criminal plots for "outrageous government conduct" in creating a "made up crime." Wright detailed how the government picked details of the entirely fictional plot at levels to guarantee felony charges, and also accused it of "trawling... poverty-ridden areas" in a "fishing expedition" dangling huge riches on people who have no money. He further noted that nearly all of the elements of "the crime" were done by the ATF:

But for the undercover agent’s imagination in this case there would be no crime. The undercover agent invented his drug-courier persona, the stash house, the 20 to 25 kilograms of cocaine supposedly inside the stash house, the two individuals supposedly guarding the stash, the need to use weapons, and the idea of robbing the stash house. He even provided the putative safe house and getaway van. Dunlap brought little to the table besides his sheer presence and perhaps the hope of being able to obtain some quick cash.

[....] ...here, the undercover agent provided a getaway van, putative safe house, and—most important of all—the entire scheme and its fictitious components. He also alleviated Defendants’ logistical and safety concerns when he “proposed that he would be inside the stash house at the time of the robbery . . . .” ...

So, how did the DOJ respond to this setback? Well, via Brad Heath, we see that the DOJ has gone to the appeals court to demand a new judge, accusing Judge Wright of being biased. Seriously.

Reassignment is warranted “to ensure not only the existence, but the appearance, of impartiality,” such as when “the district judge . . . may be viewed as having assumed the role of advocate.” ... Here, as Dunlap himself has suggested..., the district court’s tone and actions have created the appearance of hostility to the government.

As set forth earlier, the court’s tone has not been one of impartiality. To be sure, a holding of “outrageous” conduct necessarily entails strong language—condemnation is built into the very standard. But even so, the court’s comments are extreme: accusing the government of “lead[ing] us into temptation”; of “stoop[ing] to the same level as the defendants it seeks to prosecute” and “creating crime”; of targeting people simply for being poor or for having bad thoughts; and of being “cold-blooded and heartless.” Similar is the court’s refrain that the crimes of conviction were “fake,” “trumped up,” “cut from whole cloth,” or “made up”—after all, it was Hudson who initiated contact, the defendants showed up with guns, one of which Whitfield boasted could cut a man in half.... Similar, too, is the court’s repeated criticism of the investigation as a “trawling” expedition where bait was “dangled” “irresistibl[y]” before poor, ignorant defendants.

It is not just that the substance of the court’s accusations is wrong: merely erring is not grounds for reassignment. It is that the tone creates the appearance of hostility toward a government “oppressor.” ... And that tone is not limited to the court’s denoscription of historical facts: it has been also dismissive to government counsel during hearings.

In short: because the judge called out the ATF and the DOJ for its outrageous behavior, that proves that the judge is biased and therefore unfit to hear the case. Only judges that accept our outrageous behavior are reasonable and should be allowed to hear our cases.

This is the attitude of federal prosecutors. The entire system is already rigged to support us, so if a judge somehow actually pushes back on something we did, then clearly he's the problem, rather than our outrageous behavior.

What Obama Doesn’t Want You to Know About Illegals from Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala
Category: Anti-American
Tags: Obama Democrats Holder illegal aliens illegal voters criminals unlawful treason DOJ media corruption control left progressives anti-American

Not many people read the article, likely because I was about 12 hours behind the bigger media sources which reported it and we get significantly less traffic to begin with. [Oh, the joys of being a small potatoes blogger!] However, there was some very important research in that article and I would like to share it again:

Honduras has the highest homicide rate in the world at 90.4 per 100,000 population according to a United Nations report. That rate is roughly 5 times higher than Chicago, which recorded an 18.5 per 100,000 homicide rate as recently as 2012. Coincidentally El Salvador is ranked 4th and Guatemala is 5th on the list of countries with the most homicides per 100,000.

We are taking "refugees" from 3 of the top 5 murderous countries in the world and the hypocritical leftists dare to offer their wild theories of how gun control will reduce violence at home.

Think about the people we are letting into this country. They come from a culture of violence and they will ultimately bring more violence. We saw evidence of that with Monterroso-Navas, and he will not likely be an isolated case.

There has been a lot of talk about Mexican Drug Cartels and Islamic Terrorists entering through our Southern Border, but that is not the entire scope of our worries. Chicago is in the news on a daily basis for violent gun murders and yet we are letting people into this country that come from a culture that is 500% more violent than Chicago.


Do you think they can flip a magical switch when they get here and change overnight? These people come from urban war zones. You can take the immigrant out of Honduras, but you can't take Honduras out of the immigrant.

Do you think this might have been planned? The government knows full well that we are letting in more than just children. The story of the children is meant to pull at America's heartstrings.

Is this part of the strategy that Obama is using to intentionally destroy America?

It is blatantly obvious that this was all intentional.

Here is the list of the most murderous countries in the world. The murder rates to the right are the number of homicides per 100,000 population. Only 41% of these murders are the result of gun violence which proves once again that bad people will always find ways to kill:

  • Honduras: 90.4 (per 100,000)
  • Venezuela: 53.7
  • Belize: 44.7
  • El Salvador: 41.2
  • Guatemala: 39.9
  • Jamaica: 39.3
  • Swaziland: 33.8
  • Saint Kitts and Nevis: 33.6
  • South Africa: 31.0
  • Colombia: 30.8

Notice that we are not currently in the top ten. But if Obama and his pals, who planned this immigration crisis, have their way, we will be climbing up the ranks in the very near future.

It is not only children coming to America and we certainly can not assume that it is only innocent ADULTS either.

America has a major problem...


Yup! And it is called Obama and the Democrat Party of Lies....

 

Harry Reid Tied to Corruption Investigation

Tags: Reid Democrats corruption Lies control left progressives communists anti-American

 

Indictments released this week against two former Utah state attorneys general suggest that they sought to enlist the help of Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) to ward off a federal investigation.

State prosecutors on Tuesday released indictments against former Utah AGs John Swallow and Mark Shurtleff. They are charged with a number of felonies, including bribery and tampering with evidence.

The charges were expected, the Washington Times reported Wednesday, but mentions of Reid and Sen. Orrin Hatch (R., Utah) in relation to efforts to get the Federal Trade Commission to drop an investigation against two Utah businessmen are raising additional questions.

According to the court document, Mr. Swallow told Mr. Johnson “the price to obtain access to [Utah businessman Richard] Rawle’s contact person likely ‘won’t be cheap.’” Days later, in an Oct. 7, 2010, email message with the subject line of “Senator Reid,” [another Utah businessman, Jeremy] Johnson wrote to Mr. Rawle asking about the connection.

“I talked with John Swallow, and he said you might have some connections to Reid that might be helpful to us,” Mr. Johnson wrote in the email to Mr. Rawle, citing his problems with the FTC.

The court records show Mr. Johnson subsequently wired money to an account controlled by Mr. Rawle totaling $250,000, and that Mr. Rawle subsequently sent payments of $8,500 and $15,000 to Mr. Swallow from that same account.

Reid spokesman Adam Jentleson denied any impropriety on Reid’s part. Jentleson previously admitted that Johnson attended a 2010 fundraiser for Reid.

You may remember that at least one university tried to keeps secret the massive amount of money they were paying Hillary Clinton to speak on campus. But the Daily Mail is reporting that some of her contractual arrangements to speak have been brought to light.

Hillary Clinton, the former secretary of state who is preparing to run for president on a populist platform of fighting income inequality, demanded $2,777 per minute for two university speaking engagements and insisted on contracts that cut off reporters’ access to her and limited the number of photos she would take with well-wishers.

The Harry Walker Agency drew up legal agreements for Clinton’s speeches at the State University of New York at Buffalo in August 2013 and at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas next month.

Combined, the two gigs netted the Clintons’ family foundation $500,000 for three hours’ work, and allowed her to cancel or reschedule the events ‘for any reason whatsoever.’

The once-and-maybe-future White House resident is routinely granted iron-grip control over the
circumstances surrounding her speeches.

Both contracts, one published online by The Washington Post and the other by The Daily Caller, paint a picture of a control-freak PR machine surrounding Hillary.

Other demands include that she be the only  person on stage when she is making her massively expensive remarks. She wants nothing less than a “presidential glass panel teleprompter.”

The most delicious description was the Mail’s reference to a “laundry list of Diva demands.”

Of course, people try to defend these amazing expenses on the basis of free market capitalism. For example, Catherine Rampbell wrote in the Washington Post,

Lest there be any confusion, most compensation — but especially compensation that’s accompanied by a flock of flashbulbs — is determined not by some intrinsic measure of worldly achievement or moral worth but by what the market will bear.

But Rampbell’s comparison of Chelsea Clinton to Kim Kardashian assumes that the same market forces are at work in both cases. Kardashian and Clinton are both celebrities.

I certainly agree it should be legal for the Clintons to get whatever they can get paid.

But we have to consider that, when people pay a Clinton, they aren’t just buying celebrity or trying to make sure they get an audience. People know that the diva might end up in the White House, so they naturally begin hedging their bets.

Also, while Rampbell has a point, since Clinton is running an “I will fight income inequality” campaign, these massive fees point to the problem of hypocrisy.

 

Huh? Lib Dem Rep. Jan Schakowsky Claims Granting Amnesty To Millions of Illegals Will “Raise Wages of All Workers”…

I’m not sure if she’s deliberately lying or just incredibly dense.

(Jack: Well, since she IS a Dmeocrat it 's more then likey both...)

Via CNS News:

Rep. Jan Schakowsky (D-Ill.) said that “comprehensive immigration reform would add billions and billions to our economy” and “would raise the wages of all workers’ at an event on Capitol Hill on Wednesday.

“We know that comprehensive immigration reform would add billions and billions to our economy, Schakowsky said. “It would raise the wages really of all workers, because right now immigrants are – undocumented immigrants – are exploited and even paid below the minimum wage.”

CNSNews.com asked, “Do you think that allowing illegal aliens to stay in the United States and putting them on a path to citizenship, would that help the unemployed in America?”

“In so many ways it would help our economy, help American, Native American workers, and be a plus for all of us. It’s just another one of those issues where if the bill were called, it would pass. We have the votes. There are enough Republicans who would join Democrats in passing comprehensive immigration reform, and then our country would be more prosperous,” Schakowsky added.


Liberals, progressives, communists, whatever they call themselves today, are just plain insane...

Is Obama Covering Up Bergdahl Desertion Like He Covered Up Ft. Hood Terrorist Shooting?
Category: Islam is Evil

By Dave Jolly via GP

On November 5, 2009, US Army Major Nidal Hasan opened fire on fellow soldiers at Fort Hood, Texas.  When the shooting ended, Hasan had killed 13 people and wounded an additional 29. There was a ton of evidence that clearly indicated that Hasan’s attack was an act of Islamic terrorism. But our Muslim loving president and attorney general insisted on classifying it as workplace violence. Obama and Holder went out of their way to cover up Hasan’s terrorist attack.

Is Obama now doing the same thing with Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl’s desertion?

Prior to deserting his post, Bergdahl had written statements condemning the US actions and supporting the cause of the Taliban. Then he left his firearm and flak jacket behind and walked away from his assigned post. Members of his unit were sent out to search for him and found themselves under attack. Six soldiers were killed because of Bergdahl’s desertion.

US intelligence officials say that they have photos of Bergdahl taking target practice with his supposed captors and even freely carrying a rifle in the Taliban camp. He was also observed playing soccer with his supposed captors.

Then Obama, without the consent or notification of Congress, swapped five high ranking Taliban leaders for one US Army deserter. One of the five Taliban leaders played a key role in the 9-11 attack on America and has sworn to continue his efforts to destroy us, but that didn’t matter to Obama.

The parents of the soldiers that died searching for Bergdahl have been outraged over Obama’s actions. They believe the deaths of their sons were for nothing.

Robert Andrews, the father of 2nd Lieutenant Darryn Andrews stated:

"Basically, my son died unnecessarily, hunting for a guy that we shouldn't even have been hunting for."

Sondra Andrews, Darryn’s mother added:

"It gets really hurtful when I think, this guy was worth my son's life? My son who was patriotic? Who was a true soldier? Who defended his country with his life?"

"That guy was worth that? I don't think so."

Bob Curtiss, father of Sgt. Kurt Curtiss, who also was killed searching for Bergdahl, stated:

"It's just disgraceful that [President Barack] Obama would trade five high-level Taliban officers for this guy who basically defected."

"Leave him there. That was his choice, his decision."

Now their outrage is bound to be boiling over with the announcement that Bergdahl is being returned to active duty. He’s being assigned a desk job at Ft. Sam Houston in San Antonio. There is no word on any disciplinary action being taken against Bergdahl. In fact, it seems that the Obama administration is doing little in investigating the accusations of desertion made against Bergdahl by those he was serving with and it isn’t setting well with those fellow soldiers.

Army Specialist Cody Full was in Bergdahl’s platoon at the time of his desertion and he wants answers. He told Sean Hannity:

"I think the Army needs to do what's right here and abide by the Army values and he [Bergdahl] needs to face consequence for his action. Not only is it a slap in the face to all the men and women who have served honorably, who upheld their oath and it's also a bad precedent to set toward future service members."

I can’t help but think that Obama is trying his best to cover up Bergdahl’s traitorous actions and his desertion just like he covered up Maj. Hasan’s Islamic terrorist attack. We already know that Obama hates the good, strong and morally upright America and will do whatever he can to destroy it. He is protecting others that share his anti-American views while he attacks conservative law abiding patriotic Americans.

Obama continues to be a traitor to the United States by supporting our enemies and those who hate us. His actions in the Hasan and Bergdahl cases support the charges of treason that should be piling up against Obama. Hopefully, after November’s elections, we’ll have a Congress that can finally act on those charges.


Looks like our "president" is as treasonous as Bergdahl seems to be...

America Rebelling Against Invasion of Illegal Kids
Category: Anti-American

By Dave Jolly via GP

Murrieta, California may have launched a nationwide protest against the influx of illegal aliens, including the unaccompanied children. Citizens in Murrieta were the first to protest and block the importation of busloads of illegals into their community.

Nancy Greyson, a resident of Murrieta told the local news:

"We can't start taking care of others if we can't take care of our own."

Greyson’s sediments are spreading to other communities across the nation. Citizens in Oracle, Arizona; Westminster, Maryland; Vassar, Michigan and Greece, New York are among the growing number of cities that have blocked the importation of illegals into their towns. They are launching protests, writing letters and passing official resolutions to prevent the dumping of illegals that aren’t welcome and should be deported.

The same thing is happening in Prince William County, Virginia; Chicago’s south suburbs; Bristol, Virginia; Brockport, New York; Hazelton, Pennsylvania; Bethpage, New York; Baltimore, Maryland and Escondido, California.

A nationwide protest is being planned for this Friday and Saturday. It’s being called the National Day of Protesting Against Immigration Reform, Amnesty & Border Surge. There are at least 11 organizations sponsoring the protest, including Americans for Legal Immigration PAC whose president William Gheen told WND:

“Right now it’s looking like we’ll have a little more than 300 protest rallies large and small across the country. Our goal is to unify Americans of all races, political parties and walks of life against the Obama-inspired illegal immigrant invasion. At last count we had 257 communities signed up, but that was two hours ago. We’re expecting more than 300 and updating the event list every two hours.”

“We’re hoping to get an American surge that will manifest in protests and the defeat of more Eric Cantor-type Republicans that still have GOP primaries and the Democrats in November that support Obama and his amnesty plans.”

Among the GOP politicians that favor Obama’s immigration and amnesty program is Sen. Lamar Alexander (R-TN) who faces a primary challenge on Aug. 7. Gheen said that Alexander and 40 House Republicans need to be voted out of office for betraying America. He commented:

“That’s why we’re involved in this historic protest, to help turn the tide in this. That’s what they fear the most. They don’t fear people standing on an overpass swinging a flag. What they fear is when they know the next stop is the election booth and that’s our message. We want everybody to support these protests but we want them to understand we need to get them involved in these elections and the defeat of many of Obama’s amnesty allies.”

“I am predicting that it is now possible to sweep more Democrats out of office than was done in the historic revolutions of 1994 and 2010. We have to elect so many grassroots and populist conservatives that we can get the amnesty supporters out of office, and that includes John Boehner. Obama is doing this because he does not fear John Boehner. Republicans like Boehner and Rick Perry are not really Obama’s opponent. They just play those roles on television. They’re like people who can’t act well enough for Hollywood but they play characters on television for political purposes.”

Another group that is taking part in this weekend’s protest is Overpasses for America. They have organized overpass protests against Obamacare and in support of an investigation of what took place in Benghazi, but Founder James Neighbors said this weekend’s protest should be the largest one yet. He told WND:

“I think it will be bigger. It’s a collaboration of several different groups and we’ve been able to get the word spread out so well on this. People are so angry on this, it’s more tangible than impeachment. People can look around and see the results of what our open borders plan has been. I’m glad we’ll be able to provide an outlet for their anger.”

“We don’t engage in violence, we simply exercise our First Amendment rights and educate the public with our protests. We really look at it as a bypassing of the media. The ratings of the mainstream media are at an all-time low but you can’t ignore people out on an overpass; it sticks in your mind.”

Hopefully the message is spreading that Americans don’t want the illegals dumped into their communities and I don’t blame them. I can testify firsthand how an entire neighbor goes down the tubes when illegals move in. The neighborhood where I lived back in Arizona was a nice and safe family friendly neighborhood. The crime rate was low and you weren’t afraid to take walks at night or let your kids play in the yard out front. Then several groups of illegals moved into the neighborhood with up to 20-30 people in one home. The crime rate instantly shot up along with vandalism. Within a year, the property values plummeted more than in other areas in town. Decent families began moving out and today the area looks like many poverty communities in Mexico. Even the grocery store we used to shop at sold out and it is now a Mexican store and everything is in Spanish.

If the flood of illegals is not stopped, the same thing will happen in hundreds of family friendly neighborhoods throughout America. The next neighborhood could be yours. If that concerns you, then get active and help stop it from happening.
