Fry Cook Shifted to Part-Time Work Confronts Obama : Obama sidesteps the problem

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

??????????

Obama just can’t help himself, when asked a reasonable question, he resorts to the strong arm of the government for his solution and showed that he can still read a teleprompter.

Of course he rambled on with his usual nonsense a failed to answer the gentleman’s question.

hmmm

NRO

By Andrew Johnson

Barack Obama told a low-wage fry cook who has seen his hours cut by his employer because of Obamacare that the best way to help him make a living would be an increase the minimum wage:

During a Google Hangout session on Friday, fry cook Darnell Summers told President Obama that his hours were cut due to the Affordable Care Act. “We were broken down to part time to avoid paying health insurance,” he said. Summers explained that he makes $7.25 an hour and has been on strike four times seeking a wage increase. “We can’t survive, it’s not livin’,” he said.

The president responded by urging states to increase the minimum wage. “I am working to encourage states, governors, mayors, state legislators to raise their own minimum wage,” Obama said. “Obviously, the way to reach millions of people would be for Congress to pass a new federal minimum wage law. So far, at least, we have not seen support from Republicans for such a move.”

The president did not address Summers’s comments about the healthcare law.

There so much wrong with the premise of Summers’ question to President Obama. First, he doesn’t stop to think about the consequences of economic policies in the background presented before his question.

As he said, his hours were cut because of Obamacare, a step taken by his employer to avoid the employer mandate. This provision of the law requires businesses with 50 or more full-time employees, defined as someone who works at least 30 hours a week, to offer health insurance benefits or face a punitive, $2,000 per worker tax. As a result, many businesses have resorted to slashing hours or hiring predominately part-time workers to avoid added healthcare costs.

There’s the first consequence, which, unfortunately, President Obama didn’t even bother to address.

Obama Directs Cabinet to Subvert Constitution

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

This is supposed to be news?  He has just forced another teleprompter read upon us. 

26749-Obama prompter Sunrise FL 10-29-08

The only thing Obama can say about believing is that it is his belief that he can bring America down by destroying our Constitution.

That’s not going to happen since congress has abrogated its responsibility to protect and defend the Constitution and the United States of America, We the People have set a trap for him.

Am I being a bit racist here? Not at all!

Why bother, take up something useful like needle point.  It will all be total B.S. anyway.

Think about it. The president convened a Cabinet meeting to instruct the executive branch to do everything it can think of to subvert the Constitution and contravene the intentions of the Founders by end running Congress like a political tailback on steroids.

Here’s what he said before he threw the press out:

So one of the things that I’m going to be talking to my Cabinet about is how do we use all the tools available to us, not just legislation, in order to advance a mission that I think unifies all Americans,

The belief that everybody has got to take responsibility, everybody has got to work hard, but if you do, that you can support a family and meet the kinds of obligations that you have to yourself and your family but also to your communities and to your nation.

All the tools available to us? The president isn’t supposed to have such tools. That’s what the Constitution was all about – checking the power of a potential monarch.

I looked back through the Constitution and reread Article II, which describes the executive branch. Here, in toto, are the president’s significant powers:

  • Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States: If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it
  • The President shall be Commander in Chief of the Army and Navy of the United States
  • He shall have Power, by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, to make Treaties, provided two thirds of the Senators present concur; and he shall nominate, and by and with the Advice and Consent of the Senate, shall appoint Ambassadors, other public Ministers and Consuls, Judges of the supreme Court, and all other Officers of the United States, whose Appointments are not herein otherwise provided for
  • He shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed, and shall Commission all the Officers of the United States.

AND THAT’S IT. Otherwise he’s supposed to be twiddling his thumbs.

But not Obama.

Obama attempts to cash a check

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

This is an oldie but goodie but worth another read. Ironically  tells the truth in the last line of this satire.

President Obama walks into the Bank of America to cash a check. As he approaches the cashier, he says, "Good morning Ma'am, could you please cash this check for me?" Cashier: "It would be my pleasure sir. Would you please show me your ID?" Obama: "Truthfully, I did not bring my ID with me as I didn't think there was any need to. I am Barack Obama, the President of the United States of AMERICA!!!!" Cashier: "Yes sir, I know who you are, but with all the regulations and monitoring of the banks because of impostors and forgers and requirements of the Dodd /Frank legislation, etc., I must insist on seeing ID. Obama: "Just ask anyone here at the bank who I am and they will tell you. Everybody knows who I am." Cashier: "I am sorry Mr. President but these are the bank rules and I must follow them." Obama: "I order you to cash this check!" Cashier: "Look Mr. President, here is an example of what we can do. One day, Tiger Woods came into the bank without ID. To prove he was Tiger Woods he pulled his putter and made a beautiful shot across the bank into a cup. With that shot we knew him to be Tiger Woods and cashed his check. Another time, Andre Agassi came in without ID. He pulled out his tennis racquet and made a fabulous shot whereas the tennis ball landed in my cup. With that shot we cashed his check. So, Mr. President, what can you do to prove that it is you, and only you, as the President of the United States?" Obama stands there thinking, and thinking, and finally says, "Honestly, I can't think of a single thing. I don't have a clue what to do. Cashier: "Will that be large or small bills, Mr. President? It is fully understood that followers of Obama find this out of the realm of credulity.  Scroll down the page and find out for yourself.

America threatened with ‘heaviest damage in history’ There are Iranian nukes and Jon Kerry failures which are worse?

crew-2231Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Dinner-with-a-FOOL

Trying to negotiate with Iran over their nuclear intentions is a fool’s errand thrust upon John Kerry, America’s new Secretary of State and fool.

Kerry will have no more luck than a kindergarten class in negotiation, with those who desire to stall, giving them more time.

obama-to-name-vietnam-war-traitor-john-kerry-as-secretary-of-defense

When Barack Obama picked, Hanoi John as his dupe for Secretary of State the barrel from which he was scraping the bottom of could not have been very deep.

obama-reveals-details-of-missile-base-that-israel-wanted-kept-secret

The point of picking an anti-war secretary of state was to pander to his constituents in the anti-war movement who now make as much noise as the sound of one hand clapping.

In a pointed message to Washington, the second in just days, an Iranian general has warned of great destruction being delivered to the United States.
“The Americans’ catch-phrase ‘the military option is on the table’ (over the nuclear issue) is a bluff,” said Gen. Massoud Jazayeri, deputy chief of staff of Iran’s armed forces.
nuclear-bomb
 

“They are aware of the Islamic Republic of Iran’s capabilities. The slightest military mistake against Iran will make the Americans witness the heaviest damage in their history in their own eyes,” the semi-official Fars News Agency reported Monday.

On Saturday the general said, “America’s interests and all of Israel are within the range of the Islamic Republic and there is not the slightest doubt among Iran’s armed forces to confront the American government and the Zionists (Israel).”

Jazayeri said Israel is pulling the strings of Washington and “the American government is one of the most hated and evil governments in the world.”

Meanwhile, Iranian Defense Minister Brig. Gen. Hossein Dehqan told reporters on Monday that the regime’s armed forces are ready to confront any threats by the enemy and that America cannot afford a military confrontation with Iran.

“Of course, the Americans are not capable of launching a military strike against Iran because neither do the global and regional conditions allow them to do so, nor do they have such capability,” Dehqan said.

Monday’s statements come in the wake of last weekend’s failure in Geneva between the 5+1 world powers and Iran to produce any deals.

Iran had insisted on what it has always demanded: the right to enrich uranium, the right to expand its nuclear facilities and the removal of major sanctions on its oil and banking industries in exchange for halting enrichment to the 20 percent level, which could be converted to a weaponization grade in just weeks.

Iran also refused to give up any amount of its already-enriched uranium, which is enough for more than six nuclear bombs.

Today the Islamic regime has 19,000 centrifuges online, 10 tons of low-enriched uranium, 400 pounds of highly enriched uranium at the 20 percent level and a thousand ballistic missiles in heavily fortified facilities or on mobile vehicles.

This just in from the White House another complete and utter B.S. alert

smells+like+bullshit

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Come on Tara cut the B.S.  We understand those that voted for Obama have a serious dearth of critical thinking skills and this may fly with them.

Haven’t you left out the number of jobs your bosses sham health care denial program has cost the people who want to work and the U.S. Economy?

So you gin up a number with no source and little credibility and intelligent people are expected to believe it or anything that comes from the White House?

Gee you forgot to mention that most private insurers in anticipation of having to be forced into your socialist health denial pools have already raised their rates significantly?

You and you boss want to talk about one hundred dollars?  Give us all a break.

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Hi, everyone –

If you want tangible evidence of the way that the new health care law is already helping ordinary people, it’s worth having a conversation with one of the 8.5 million Americans who received rebates from their insurance companies this summer. Just ask the folks who got checks in the mail.

Because of the Affordable Care Act, insurers are required to spend at least 80 percent of premium dollars on medical care, instead of overhead like salaries or advertising. And if an insurance company doesn’t meet that standard, it has to provide a rebate to its customers.

It’s a really big deal, and we want to make sure everyone understands how it works.

Obama’s Dangerous Confusions

jc

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

Mr. Henninger’s columns go under the monicer  of Wonderland.

images-1

A fitting description for where one can find Obama’s mind.

As Wall Street Journalist Dan Henninger  so aptly points out in his video segment below; Obama is  conflicted about spending money on the wars we are in because he wants to spend the money on further useless socialist programs.

(My words immediately above, not Mr. Henninger’s)

The Wall Street Journal

By Daniel Henninger

When the President speaks on national security, it is hard to distinguish between personal belief and political calculation.

More than anything, what one should want from an American president on matters of U.S. strategic interest is clarity. Clarity minimizes unwanted mistakes and miscalculations by both friends and foes.

Then there’s a speech by President Obama on America’s national interests.

Pundits everywhere have been writing that Mr. Obama’s speech last Thursday on terror announced that the war on terror is over. That’s embedded now as the consensus view. What to make, then, of the president’s assertion in that speech that “the United States is at war with al Qaeda, the Taliban and their associated forces”? Which is it—war over or war on?

ED-AQ828_WL0530_G_20130529171959

At the end of a long article Tuesday in the New York Times, describing the president’s laborious path to the terror speech’s proposals, one finds this passage: “Even as he set new standards, a debate broke out about what they actually meant and what would actually change.”

The bureaucrats translating the text of the Affordable Care Act are having similar debates about intent and meaning. But there the costs are mostly economic if HHS’s Kathleen Sebelius can’t figure out what she is supposed to do. If the national security bureaucracies are uncertain about a president’s intentions, the costs may be counted in lives.

The day after delivering his thoughts on terror at the National Defense University, Mr. Obama spoke at the Naval Academy’s commencement in Annapolis and then at Arlington Cemeteryon Memorial Day. Those speeches also reflected the Obama technique on matters of war and peace. They combined eloquence, empathy, scapegoating and politics. Listeners the world over may ask: What exactly is he saying to us?

At Arlington, Mr. Obama noted that when he spoke there last year, “for the first time, Americans were no longer fighting and dying in Iraq.” And “this time next year, we will mark the final Memorial Day of our war in Afghanistan.” Not one positive word about either effort.

The three military deaths in Afghanistan Mr. Obama cited were similarly—and oddly—drained of meaning. The first was a woman, a pilot, whose helicopter crashed “during a training mission near Kandahar.” A staff sergeant died three weeks ago “when his vehicle was hit by a roadside bomb.” And another staff sergeant died while escorting a U.S. official to a meeting with Afghan leaders.

There is no point at which Mr. Obama even suggests that the effort of the military who served in these missions was worth it. Indeed, he seems to be saying it wasn’t worth it. Opinion polls suggest some Americans agree, but it is unprecedented for a commander-in-chief to encourage feelings of failure and defeat.

The graduating Naval Academy midshipmen heard much the same thing.

Holder’s Seat Burning Hot Following Press Revolt, Perjury Accusations

jc

Comment by Jim Campbell, Citizen Journalist, Oath Keeper and Patriot.

It is highly probable that corruption has existed in politics since our nation was founded.

It’s the nature of man to look out for his own interests first.

 

Obama-Most-Corrupt-Administration

That being said, there has never been a more corrupt administration that that of Barack Benghazi Obama. 

Once We The People wrest the Constitution and our country from the slippery grasp of the progressive movement should We the People allow this to happen again, then we only have ourselves to blame. 

That’s my story and I’m sticking to it, I’m J.C. and I approve this message.

Mr. Holder’s record demonstrates a willingness to bend the law in order to protect his political patrons. On his watch at the Clinton Justice Department, the pardon process was upended and corrupted by a “pay to play” mentality.

images-1

 

This undermined, in the least, the appearance of the fair administration of justice by the Justice Department. Mr. Holder is the wrong person to head the Department of Justice.

 

I wish I could tell you we were wrong. But, after four years of some of the most egregious scandals in the history of the country – many of them originating from within the nation’s highest law enforcement agency – our words have proven prophetic. From Fast and Furious to the Black Panthers to encouraging voter fraud this has been the most corrupt Department of Justice (DOJ) in modern U.S. history.

And now, in the wake of a scandal in which the DOJ collected the private email correspondence of reporters, seized their phone records and tracked their movements as part of an investigation of leaks, Eric Holder has lost his biggest defender – the press itself.

Last week you will recall that President Obama directed Eric Holder to meet with the Washington, D.C., bureau chiefs of major news outlets to discuss the administration’s subpoena policies. The move was a clear attempt by Obama to change a narrative that had done significant damage to the White House.

But when the administration announced those discussions would be “off the record,” the wheels came off the wagon. Per CNN: Entire article below.
