Barack Obama richly deserves to be ostracized, impeached, and removed from office for a plethora of high crimes and misdemeanors committed since and including his inauguration on January 20, 2009, and re-inauguration on January 20, 2013..
His impeachable offenses run the gamut from the abuse of power, and treason, to willful failure to “faithfully execute” the laws of the United States, including his despicable refusal to enforce America’s borders and immigration laws--- for the corrupt cause of partisan political gain!
As criminal as Obama has been, he is, regrettably, not alone.
Particularly as concerns the degradation of America into a third-world sanctuary for tens of millions of non-English speaking, impoverished, unskilled illegal aliens as a result of non-enforcement of immigration laws, Obama’s predecessor, Republican G.W. Bush, set the tone for inattention, inaction, and incomprehensible stupidity.
It was, after all, Bush who was in office at the time of the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Given the threat and danger to Homeland Security, then President Bush should have immediately sealed off the borders with armed military force in order to prevent illegal entry.
Bush did no such thing. In fact, he continued to pretend that securing the border was unnecessary, while insisting that the invaders were “good hearted, hard-working” folks who were inexplicably entitled to exist above and beyond the constraints of civilized law.
As a result of Bush’s gross dereliction of duty and simplistic judgment, the illegal alien population continued to grow unabated, even while America was at war!
Clearly, GW Bush set an example of indifference, if not outright defiance, to the rule of law for future presidents.
Although it is lamentable that Bush was followed in office by a man whom had, and has, no respect for American culture, the US Constitution, and the rule of law, nonetheless the fact unadulterated truth is:
To a degree, G.W. Bush enabled Obama’s reign of criminality through felonious precedence and disregard for the rights and welfare of America citizens.
One can only pray that Barack Obama AND G.W. Bush will both suffer the indignities and physical consequences of eternal damnation!

Barack Hussein Obama shocked, saddened, and disappointed millions of patriotic Americans when, upon returning from his long, but totally undeserved, vacation he blithely announced that his administration does NOT YET have a strategy for dealing with ISIL.
Which is quite disconcerting because, as nearly everyone but Obama knows, ISIL is the most viscous, subhuman terrorist group ever to threaten modern civilization at large, and America in particular.
Only the most shallow, anti-American tyrannical dumbbell, posing as Commander-in-Chief, would stand before the American people and admit, without a hint of shame or regret, that the administration does not yet have a strategy for dealing with the pandemic of Islamic blood-terror now infecting every corner of the globe, under the black banners of ISIL
To acknowledge that such a woeful, pathetic character as Obama occupies the Oval Office and is largely responsible for defending the nation and the US Constitution is sobering, appalling, and downright scary!
Future generations of historians, scientists, theologians and others who study social pathology for scholastic ends will be at a loss to understand, much less explain, how Barack Obama came to be elected, and reelected, president of the United States by an electorate presumed to be reasonably well educated and imbued with the requisite wisdom and judgment to exist as a sovereign, responsible state for more than 240 years!
Scholars will be forced to conclude that the lack of an appropriate regard for ISIL was rooted in patently false narratives and beliefs, developed by Obama and his loyal operatives, and vigorously promoted by liberal media, which sought to portray Obama as an intellectual giant with messianic gifts and uncommon worldly acumen normally reserved for deity, or certified representatives of such, as in the case of the Pope.
As evidence of the pervasive Obama dumbing down of American thought and cultural excellence, scholars will surely cite some of the more preposterous examples of spin regularly regurgitated by the administration to deny, delay and deter responsible actions, among which will be:
*The war on terror is over!
*Shame on America: We tortured terrorists!
*Al-Quaeda has been decimated; ISIL is nothing but a JV terrorist wanna be!
*The World has never been safer!
*Islam is a religion of peace; Muslims have made invaluable contributions to American culture and democracy;
*America is not now, and will never be, at war with Islam, including ISIL;
*America has fallen victim to a disastorous “war mindset,” from the failed Bush-43 years. In order to survive, we must fundamentally transform America by rejecting the pursuit of perpetual war in favor of the Hope and Change agenda that America voted for in 2008 and again in 2012!
Given the pathetic ideas from above, it is actually quite remarkable that Obama has not, yet, offered to unilaterally surrender to ISIL and add the 57 US states to the newly minted caliphate!

On the heels of Barack Obama’s mind-numbing admission concerning the lack of a “strategy” for dealing with ISIL in Syria, even worse news is breaking:
ISIL is now operating within Mexico! Thus, the insecure border with Mexico now involves a serious terrorist threat that even Barack Obama will be forced to take seriously.
Islamic terrorist groups are operating in the Mexican border city of Ciudad Juarez and planning to attack the United States with car bombs or other vehicle born improvised explosive devices (VBIED). High-level federal law enforcement, intelligence and other sources have confirmed to Judicial Watch that a warning bulletin for an imminent terrorist attack on the border has been issued. Agents across a number of Homeland Security, Justice and Defense agencies have all been placed on alert and instructed to aggressively work all possible leads and sources concerning this imminent terrorist threat.
Specifically, Judicial Watch sources reveal that the militant group Islamic State of Iraq and Greater Syria (ISIS) is confirmed to now be operating in Juarez, a famously crime-infested narcotics hotbed situated across from El Paso, Texas. Violent crimes are so rampant in Juarez that the U.S. State Department has issued a number of travel warnings for anyone planning to go there. The last one was issued just a few days ago.
The administration has also covered up, or at the very least downplayed, a serious epidemic of crime along the Mexican border even as heavily armed drug cartels have taken over portions of the region. Judicial Watch has reported that the U.S. Border Patrol actually ordered officers to avoid the most crime-infested stretches because they’re “too dangerous” and patrolling them could result in an “international incident” of cross border shooting. In the meantime, who could forget the famous words of Obama’s first Homeland Security Secretary, Janet Napolitano; the southern border is “as secure as it has ever been.”
Bottom Line: While Barack Obama and his crazy democrat pals waste time trying to assure that illegal alien invaders have taxpayer-paid attorneys, ISIL is making plans to turn America into a vast wasteland!

Barack Obama shocked, saddened, and disappointed a lot of Americans when he blithely announced that the US government does NOT YET have a strategy for dealing with ISIL, the most ferocious, brutal, well-funded, and savvy terrorist group to threaten 21st century civilization, and America in particular.
What could possibly be going through the shallow, socialist mind of America’s alleged Commander-in-Chief? How can this character continue to occupy the Oval Office in light of such epic failures and incompetence?
Perhaps Obama’s incompetence can be traced to his dysfunctional mindset which holds that:
*The war on terror is over!
*We tortured terrorists at GITMO, so perhaps we are to blame!
*Al-Quaeda has been decimated
*World has never been safer!
*The perpetual war “mindset” is a relic of the failed Bush years—hope and change transition eliminates need to wage endless war!
*Islam is a religion of peace---US NOT at war with Islam!
Given the pathetic notions above, it is surprising that Obama has not offered to unilaterally surrender to ISIL and its new caliphate!

On August 22, US Defense Secretary Hagel issued a dire warning about the threat posed by the Islamic State terrorist group, saying:
"ISIL is as sophisticated and well-funded as any group that we have seen," Hagel said. "They're beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of strategic and tactical military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. Oh, this is beyond anything that we've seen. So we must prepare for everything."
Clearly, Chuck Hagel believes that ISIS is more brutal, more ruthless, and more of a threat to America and the world than the lunatics of Al-Quadea whom masterminded and carried out the 9/11 attack which cost 3,000 American civilians their lives.
Given the severity and urgency of Hagel’s warning, one would have expected the US Commander-in-Chief to return from his vacation with a detailed strategy and plan for defeating the ISIS killers.
Alas, Barack Obama is the Commander-In-Chief and Hagel’s warning came at a time when the One was seriously engaged in golf, dancing, and other recreational diversions, apparently more important than preservation of the nation and 330 million American lives.
First things first, after all. And when it comes to Obama, golf is first, second, third, and on and on.
Being president is, it seems, an annoying sideline, especially when Obama’s golf addiction and other vacation frivolities are involved.
Thus, it should have come as no great surprise that Obama addressed the ISIS fray with less than robust enthusiasm.
He was, as they say, distracted.
After lots of bluster about striking ISIS on Syria, President Obama threw cold water on the idea Thursday, disappointing those who wanted him to take the fight to ISIS in Syria.
After a week of talk of eliminating the "cancer" of ISIS, President Obama said Thursday that he was not planning to significantly expand the war against the Islamic extremist movement anytime soon.
His remarks came after days of heated debate inside the top levels of his own national security bureaucracy about how, where, and whether to strike ISIS in Syria. But those deliberations – which included a bleak intelligence assessment of America's potential allies in Syria -- failed to produce a consensus battle plan. And so Obama, who has long been reluctant to enter into the Syrian conflict, told reporters Thursday that “we don’t have a strategy yet” for confronting ISIS on a regional level.”
No strategy yet, Mr. President? Does the name James Foley ring a bell, sir? You know, the journalist whom was ruthlessly beheaded by an ISIS monster as pay back for the US bombings in Iraq?
Does the name Chuck Hagel mean anything, sir? He is your Defense Secretary and he has warned that America must move urgently to eliminate ISIS.
Good heavens, Mr. President, America needs strong, powerful leadership to deal with ISIS!
The big question: Is ISIS another messy duty that is above your pay grade? Sir?

By now, even the most gooey-eyed liberal must admit that the “talk solution” advocated by Barack Obama and other progressive diplomacy freaks is hardly a universal solution to anything, least of all a bitter religious spat dating back to the Garden of Eden, Father Abraham, and his dysfunctional family, especially brats Issac and Ishmael.
Given the history of the Abraham clan and its inability to even get along peacefully, it should come as no great surprise that all these many years later, there is nothing but enmity between God’s “chosen people” and the non-Jews who see things differently.
The amazing thing is that western interlopers such as Great Britain and America continue to spread false hope for an accord between Israel and the Palestinians!
Rubbish! There is no hope and to say that there is is blasphemy on the highest!
Give it up, John Kerry!
Palestinians hate Jews and Jews hate Palestinians. Such is the DNA configuration mandated from on high, unalterable by some crazy-jawed moon bat from Massachusetts!
The entire notion of a two-state solution involving Israel and the Palestinians is nuttiness on steroids!
The only solution is to separate the warring parties as much as possible and do not count on anything even approaching civility.
Remember, these folks hate each other nearly as much as red necks in Alabama loathe Yankee air heads from New England!
What, then, can be done?
Looking at a map of the Middle East reveals a vast patch of land called Saudi Arabia, is sparsely populated, and available.
Why not give the Palestinians a chunk of Saudi Arabia to call their own, free from the Jews and their Zionist sympathizers?
Surely, King Abdullah bin Abdulaziz would not object to sharing a few billion sand castles with fellow Muslims in order to foster peace and please Allah?

Barack Obama’s lasting legacy will surely be his legendary talent for story-telling. Or to be more precise, Obama is a master when it comes to using the Bully Pulpit of the Presidency to issue bold-faced lies and distortions, not coincidentally all of which exaggerate his achievements, while ignoring, or understating, the destructive impact of Obama policies on America’s military, economic, social, and political institutions.
Take, for instance, Obama’s outrageous attempt to sugar-coat world conditions so as to make it appear as though Utopia has been achieved, presumably attributable to his tenure in the White House.
As reported at the reference, Barack Obama actually said the following:
“The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.”
Rose-colored glasses and insidious self-delusions allow Obama to speak such nonsense, with impunity, mostly due to a brain-dead media which remains enamored and adoring of The One, despite six horrendous years of failure.
However, occasionally light will break through the fog of media-created fantasy and enlightenment will ensue, if ever so briefly.
Such is the case with recent remarks made by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel who warned that Obama-sponsored victory laps should be taken with a grain, or more, of salt.
As reported at Reference 2:
The sophistication, wealth and military might of Islamic State militants represent a major threat to the United States that may surpass that once posed by al Qaeda, U.S. military leaders said on Thursday.
"They are an imminent threat to every interest we have, whether it's in Iraq or anywhere else," Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters at the Pentagon.
Hagel's assessment of Islamic State, which gained strength during Syria's civil war and swept into northern Iraq earlier this summer, sounded a note of alarm several days after the group posted a video on social media showing one of its fighters beheading an American hostage kidnapped in Syria.
Asked if the hard line Sunni Muslim organization posed a threat to the United States comparable to that of the attacks of Sept. 11, 2001, Hagel said it was "as sophisticated and well-funded as any group we have seen."
"They are beyond just a terrorist group. They marry ideology, a sophistication of ... military prowess. They are tremendously well-funded. This is beyond anything we've seen."
"Beyond anything we have seen,” Mr. Hagel?
Combined with events in the Ukraine-Russian conflict, the new cold war between Russia and America, the Syrian civil war, the ongoing Israel-Palestine wars, the barbaric moves of ISIS, invasions at the US-Mexico borders, and flare ups in cities like Ferguson, Missouri, one wonders exactly how Barack Obama develops his world views?
Can America survive two more years of such infantile thinking?

Eric Holder is Attorney General of the United States and, as such, is the chief law enforcement officer of the land, a position which requires objective, unbiased analyses of facts and actions based on proven facts---not emotions or personal history.
As reported at the reference, Holder visited Ferguson, Missouri in order to deal with the aftermath of the August 9 shooting of Michael Brown, a young, unarmed black man whom was slain by a white police officer named Darren Wilson.
Attorney General Eric Holder flew to Ferguson, Mo., on Wednesday as the nation's chief law enforcement officer leading an investigation into a police shooting.
He also arrived as an African-American who said he understands the racial tensions that have fueled days of protests that have been marred by violence and mass arrests since the Aug. 9 shooting of Michael Brown by Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson.
"I am the Attorney General of the United States, but I am also a black man," Holder told Ferguson residents at a community meeting. "I can remember being stopped on the New Jersey turnpike on two occasions and accused of speeding. Pulled over. ... 'Let me search your car' ... Go through the trunk of my car, look under the seats and all this kind of stuff. I remember how humiliating that was and how angry I was and the impact it had on me."
Holder was here primarily for briefings on the Justice Department's ongoing investigation into possible civil rights violations related to the fatal shooting. He offered perhaps his most forceful and personal assessment yet of how the 18-year-old man's shooting has re-ignited a long history of racial "mistrust and mutual suspicion.''
"The eyes of the nation and the world are watching Ferguson right now,'' Holder told a group of community leaders assembled at a local community college. "The world is watching because the issues raised by the shooting of Michael Brown predate this incident. This is something that has a history to it, and the history simmers beneath the surface in more communities than just Ferguson."
Although the Attorney General did not specifically accuse Wilson of murder, his comments lacked any mention of the vital tenants of law: Namely, presumption of innocence and the right to due process.
On the contrary, Holder’s comments suggest that racial stereotypes and “history” are more important than “old school” ideals set forth in the Constitution.
Sympathizing with Michael Brown’s family is an appropriate action by the AG, provided it does not deny Darren Wilson the presumption of innocence.
To date, Darren Wilson has been unjustly convicted and tried by black leaders, some of whom have even demanded death for the six-year veteran.
Unfortunately, Eric Holder’s comments have been unhelpful in separating raw emotion, stoked by slavery and years of discrimination, from facts and reason.
Again, to Mr. Holder: What about Darren Wilson, sir?

Barack Obama emerged from his cocoon of luxury and privilege on Martha’s Vineyard just long enough to confirm that, like most domestic and foreign crises he has either ignored or completely muffed over the past six years, the mess in Ferguson, Missouri is another matter that is “beyond his pay grade.”
Unfortunately, rather than simply ignoring the looting, Molotov Cocktails, death threats, and protestor shootings at police, Obama decided to rely on his world-class instincts for making any problem worse by orders of magnitude.
Which is why the One has decided to send Eric Holder, he of Fast and Furious fame, and a proud bearer of the Contempt of Congress honor, to the front lines in the war being waged on the streets against the citizens of Ferguson.
As reported at the reference:
President Barack Obama is sending Attorney General Eric Holder to Ferguson, Missouri, to meet with federal law enforcement authorities investigating the police shooting of an unarmed teenager.
Holder recently authorized a federal autopsy on the body of Michael Brown, the unarmed 18-year-old who was fatally shot on Aug. 9. Brown was black; the officer who shot him was white.
Obama spoke from the White House on Monday after independent autopsy results determined that Brown was shot at least six times, including twice in the head.”
Obama’s decision to involve his controversial AG in the dicey issue has puzzled pundits and keen observers of the Ferguson situation.
Why would he send the flame-throwing Holder into a fray that calls for diplomacy, intelligence, and nerves of steel?
Experts believe that Holder may be authorized to make a peace offering to the New Black Panthers party, a group that Holder has patronized and bent over backwards for in the past.
Regardless of the underlying motive, Holder is sure to further inflame the situation and, in the process, make the war in Gaza seem tame by comparison!

Unimaginable heart-break and grief haunt the parents of Michael Brown, the young black man shot and killed by local police on the streets of Ferguson on August 9.
As reported at the reference:
“The parents of Michael Brown, a teen who was fatally shot by an officer Saturday afternoon, spoke to the public about seeking justice and calling for an investigation in a Monday afternoon press conference.
Brown's parents said they had planned to celebrate the beginning of his education at a technical college Monday but now they're planning a funeral. No further details have been given for the funeral of Brown.”
Heart-breaking, unfair, un-American, ungodly, and literally insane.
No parents living in America should have to suffer the tragedy which has visited the Brown parents.
Surely the distraught parents deserve unbridled support in their quest for answers and justice. Although justice can never bring Michael back, it can mollify---if ever so slightly--- the deadly pain.
Unfortunately, recent events on the streets of Ferguson have diverted attention from the pursuit of justice for Michael Brown to dealing with out-of-control violence in the beleaguered city. In effect, Michael Brown has been abandoned and co-opted by the very people who claim to be friends and supporters.
Rather than bringing public attention to the need for justice, demonstrators and antagonists have made an elaborate case for tougher, more draconian measures to protect the lives and property of innocent Ferguson citizens.
They have succeeded, as Governor Jay Nixon has ordered the Missouri national guard to enter the war zone that used to be Ferguson.
Thus, the quest for justice has been overshadowed by looting, Molotov Cocktails, and death threats borne of hatred, ignorance, and greed.
Rest in peace, Michael Brown?

Darrell Wilson, the police officer identified by the police as the one who shot and killed Michael Brown in Ferguson, has been a marked man since the police released his identity last week. Wilson’s survival problems have been compounded by lunatics in the media who have published or broadcast his address, including street name and number, even as rioting continues to fester in the streets, punctuated by Molotov Cocktails and gun shots.
As reported at the reference:
“CNN broadcast a report Friday that showed the house, including the street number, of the Ferguson police officer who police say shot Mike Brown. The officer has been in hiding due to death threats since the shooting last Saturday.
His name, Darren Wilson, was just released Friday morning.
Another news outlet apologized for broadcasting video of Wilson’s home while others have virtually drawn a map to Wilson’s house for those bent on vengeance.
Yahoo News named the community Wilson where Wilson resides and published a photograph of the officer.
The UK Daily Mail also named the community, posted photos of the officer and gave a description of the house.
USA Today also named the community and reported a local police presence.
The Washington Post named the street where Wilson lives.
In the video report, CNN reporter Ed Lavandera is seen walking in the street where Wilson lives. The CNN video shows a wide view of Wilson’s house and then pans around the street to show its relative position in the neighborhood. While Lavandera does not name the street, he gives its approximate location.”
In their mindless race to break the news first, the media have sacrificed common sense and simple decency. By so doing, a grave disservice has been inflicted on the public while endangering the life of a police officer, still presumed innocent, who may have acted appropriately and within the law.

As reported at the reference, members of the “New” Black Panthers marched and chanted death threats for Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer named by police as the one who shot and killed Michael Brown on August 9.
As shown in the You Tube video, protestors repeat a chant calling for the death of Darren Wilson:
The Panthers are heard to Chant:
What do we want?
– Darren Wilson
How do we want him?
One wonders whether Eric Holder, US Attorney General, has plans to investigate and, if warranted, prosecute the protesters for making very public death threats against a police officer?
It will be remembered that Holder refused to take action against Black Panthers whom intimidated voters during the 2008 election in Philadelphia.

Governor Rick Perry is but the latest Republican to fall victim to a Texas Chain- Gang massacre, also known as Democrat Party corruption of the legal system in the Lone Star state.
"A grand jury has indicted Texas Republican Gov. Rick Perry on two felony counts of abuse of power for making good on a veto threat — a case the possible 2016 presidential hopeful is dismissing as nakedly political, but which his opponents say is just deserts.
The indictments for abuse of official capacity and coercion of a public servant came late Friday, after a special prosecutor spent months calling witnesses and presenting evidence that Perry broke the law when he carried out a promise to nix $7.5 million over two years for the public integrity unit run by the office of Travis County District Attorney Rosemary Lehmberg. The Democratic official was convicted of drunken driving, but refused Perry's repeated calls to resign.”
Although the charges are serious will & surely hinder Perry’s presidential bid in 2016, the repugnant, unseemly reputation of Democrats in Texas should see Perry through this outrageous abuse of the law.
Perry’s defense can be based on two simple words which tell the story of another wretched abuse by Texas Democrats.
The words: Tom Delay!

Those of us who smugly regard western culture to be vastly superior to the subhuman carnage routinely practiced by Islam devotees appeared to be vindicated by the sickening photo of a 7-year-old Muslim boy proudly displaying the bloodied head of a Syrian soldier killed by Islamic State heathen in July.
Barbaric lack of regard for human life, we exclaimed in united horror. Another perfect example of the savagery of Islam, the misnamed “Religion of Peace.”
However, a fatality on a race track in Canandaigua, N.Y. last week end suggests that Americans may, in some instances, also lack appropriate sensitivity when it comes to terminating a human life
Perhaps winning a car race and preserving one’s macho image are more important than ending an insignificant life, at least in some situations?
At issue is the tragic death of 20-year-old Kevin Daly Jr. who idiotically left his race car and walked among speeding cars during a race.
Daly’s bizarre, fatal behavior was apparently driven by anger at race driver Tony Stewart who, in Daly’s mind, had violated racing protocol.
Unfortunately for Daly, his decision to walk in the dark among cars driven at blazing speeds on a race track cost the young man his life when Tony Stewart smashed into Daly, thereby killing the 20-year old.
The NASCAR spectacle was captured on video and immediately went viral as America watched in horror and disbelief.
Tony Stewart made what some fans considered a magnanimous gesture by announcing that, out of respect for the dead 20-year-old, he would not take part in a race scheduled for this past Monday evening.
It does not appear that Tony Stewart was detained by authorities. His greatest loss, to date, appears to have been missing a scheduled race!
Of course, the bloody mess was investigated as reported at the reference.
Summing up the investigation on Monday, Ontario County Sheriff Philip Povero said there currently were no criminal charges pending.
"At this time, there are no facts that exist that support any criminal behavior or conduct or any probable cause of a criminal act in this investigation," he said.
"This is an open investigation. What I have just said is not indicative that the investigation is over or conclusions have been made, but that we are continuing to gather all information," he continued.
He also said an autopsy conducted Monday by the Ontario County coroner found Ward's cause of death to be massive blunt trauma.
So, Tony Stewart caused “massive blunt trauma” to the personage of Kevin Ward Jr. who died as a result, and Stewart is still wrestling with whether or not to race this weekend?
And “At this time, there are no facts that exist that support any criminal behavior or conduct or any probable cause of a criminal act in this investigation,” according to Sheriff Povero?
What about “involuntary manslaughter,” Sheriff? Or negligence?
Surely a man cannot run down another man, accidentally or not, and kill said man with impunity? Not here in sophisticated, civilized America with our rich Christian heritage and family values?
At a minimum, Tony Stewart should be restricted from racing until the investigation into the death of Kevin Daly Jr. is completed and the lack of “criminal behavior or conduct”
is confirmed by law authorities!
Surely that cannot be asking too much! In America!

Barack Obama’s promise to usher in the “post-racial” era in America has been jettisoned to the trash heap of broken promises, lies, and utter failure, hastened by events in Ferguson, MO where the calming influence of Reverends Jackson and Sharpton has resulted in another shooting and run-away rioting.
As reported at the reference:
At about 1 a.m., a St. Louis County Police officer shot and critically wounded a man who police said pointed a handgun at the officer near the intersection of West Florissant and Chambers Road.
The shooting happened near Chambers and Sheffingdell Court, not far from the site of protests against police over the fatal shooting of Michael Brown. The location is less than a mile from the QuikTrip on West Florissant that was looted and burned Sunday night.
Police said they received a call reporting about four to five men in the area armed with shotguns and wearing ski masks. They also got reports of shots fired in the area. Police officers arrived and saw "multiple subjects running," said police spokesman Officer Brian Schellman.
An officer approached one of the men and he pulled a handgun on the officer who then fired, Schellman said.
Police said they recovered the handgun at the scene. The man was taken to a hospital.
Officers cleared the shooting scene shortly before 5 a.m. By 6:30 a.m., the streets were quiet and school buses were running.”
Meanwhile, Barack Obama vacations in the splendor and luxury of Martha’s Vineyard, far removed from the riots and shootings taking place in the greater St. Louis area.

On June 12, 2014, President Barack Obama startled thinking people with the following “fairy tale” assessment of the world situation that he helped create.
As reported at reference 1, Obama said:
[T]he truth of the matter is that for all the challenges we face, all the problems that we have, if you had to be — if you had to choose any moment to be born in human history, not knowing what your position was going to be, who you were going to be, you’d choose this time. The world is less violent than it has ever been. It is healthier than it has ever been. It is more tolerant than it has ever been. It is better fed then it’s ever been. It is more educated than it’s ever been.”
Obama’s rose-colored view of world affairs seemed in stark contrast to the latest news from Gaza and Tel Aviv, Russia and Ukraine, Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan and other locations where violence has been the norm, rather than the exception.
In addition, when one considers the beheading craze among Mexican drug cartels, the Obama-manufactured war at the US-Mexico border, and the toxic proliferation of gun violence in America which Obama and Democrats blame on the NRA and Republicans, it is difficult, at best, to take The One seriously.
Obama’s simplistic estimate of world agony is apparently not shared by Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel, whom as reported at reference 2, said the following:
Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel addressed a group of Marines in San Diego, California Tuesday, and may have delivered a line that will show up in Republican campaign ads this election cycle. After updating the troops on some issues in the Pacific region and the Middle East, Hagel took questions from some of the Marines and gave a stark assessment of the global security situation: "The world is exploding all over."
Exploding all over?
Why has no one in the administration bothered to explain reality to Barack Obama?

Barack Obama, once considered the “smartest man in the world,” at least in his own mind, took the Oath of Office for the US Presidency with little or no practical experience, a serious shortfall aggravated by a naïve belief that his personage was the repository of all ideas and moral standards needed to run, and simultaneously save, the world.
His immature, childish views of the world were buoyed by a superego and world-class narcissism which tricked the Community Organizer into believing press clippings issued by an adoring mainstream media, anxious to replace a bumbling, stumbling, war-mongering, white cowboy from Texas with an ultra-liberal black who could be counted on to usher in an era of peace and socialist utopia which would rid the nation of Caucasian capitalism, an evil which had wrought generations of slavery, racial discrimination, income inequality, unlivable wages, and other dire circumstances for all but advantaged white Republicans.
According to Obama, he knew the “right thing to do” in all aspects of American life from war, to the economy, to civil rights, to illegal immigration.
He had all the answers and with the mandate received from the America people in November, 2008, he would march forward to “fundamentally transform America” in a way that would reflect his values and expectations.
America’s new president wasted little time.
After shamelessly accepting the Nobel Peace Prize in 2009, but before becoming familiar with the location of White House bathrooms nearest to the Oval Office, Obama immediately pounced on GITMO, the house of horrors created by President George W. Bush to detain terrorists captured in Iraq and Afghanistan, AND used by the US to interrogate and, allegedly, torture evil Islamic soldiers dedicated to destroying America and Israel in the name of Allah.
He would shut GITMO down, he declared, before giving intelligent thought to how to house the most deadly men in the world. Details could be worked out…his mission was to stop the carnage visited upon terrorists in order to curry favor with Al-Quaeda and the Islamaofascist elite around the world.
As of today, GITMO still stands, although Obama has managed to release individual agents of the devil, most of whom have picked up the banner of terrorism in order to resume their religious war on modern civilization.
President Obama also let it be known that the Iraq war, which he called America’s “dumb” war, was a sad relic from the woeful days of the Bush 43 presidency, and as such, would be abandoned with all due haste.
On this, Obama brought the very best surrender and retreat minds in the Democrat Party together and crafted the end of the Iraq war in December, 2011.
Another great foreign policy triumph for Obama, enthused the mainstream media! VP Joe Biden even called Obama’s Iraq policy a “great achievement” that would be a sterling legacy item for generations.
Less adoring voices, however, warned that the US retreat from Iraq would leave a power vacuum in the middle east that would eventually necessitate further engagement by the US military to combat Islamic terror.
Those warnings, unheeded, proved prophetic when Barack Obama, without apology or regret, “authorized” the use of military force (bombing) in Northern Iraq to stymie efforts by ISIS to bring genocide to 40,000 innocent minority folks who refused to accept Islam as the only true religion and whom were sentenced to death for such impertinence!
And so it is, that Barack Hussein Obama has been forced to admit that when it comes to “dumb,” his simplistic, naïve policies are the real culprits in Iraq!
And the man has not even had the class to return his Nobel Peace Prize!
Obama’s faulty judgment and lack of American enlightenment is responsible for mismanaged engagements, or near engagements, in Libya, Syria, and Afghanistan.
His “reset” folly has restarted the Cold War with Russia, a dangerous situation that could escalate into a hot confrontation at any time.
So, when it comes to the role of Commander-in-Chief, Obama has been a total failure.
So, too, are his domestic ventures which include the onerous ObamaCare night mare, crisis at the US-Mexico border, and a myriad of serious scandals.
By his little lonesome, Barack Obama has all but demolished American faith and trust in government.
His truly has been a global failure!

It is truly a sad state of affairs when one feels compelled to question the motives, competence, and common sense of our President to deal honestly and effectively with a crisis that could bring death and destruction to the American people. At issue is the deadly Ebola crisis.
Questioning the President’s commitment to “doing the right thing” when it comes to a public health issue is sad, but appropriate, given Barack Obama’s dismal record of disinterest, aloofness, and application of sinister ulterior motives when it comes to defending we the people.
An obvious example is the raging crisis at the US-Mexico border, which threatens the private property rights and health and well-being of American citizens whom are constantly assaulted by 3rd-world illegal aliens with impunity.
In dealing with the “humanitarian crisis” at the border, which is the direct result of Obama’s wanton disregard for the rule of law, Obama compounded the outrage by sending lawyers (paid for by taxpayers), to assist the invaders!
Had he even a “smidgen” of concern about US sovereignty and the plight of American citizens, Obama would have dispatched US Marines to the border with orders to restore order by loading recently-arrived invaders onto buses for immediate return of the interlopers to the 3rd-world cesspools from whence they came.
Such forceful action by America’s Commander-in-Chief action would have sent a clear and powerful message to the ruling elite in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador:
America is a sovereign nation with established borders and laws that must be complied with. It is not OK for Central American nations to ship their problems north for American taxpayers to deal with!
Of course, Obama did no such thing, opting instead to invite even more illegal invasions---and American citizens be damned!
In addition, this president has willfully and illegally used the federal government of the United States against American citizens and political opponents.
This abuse has seen Barack Obama use the VA, the IRS, NSA, and other powerful government agencies against Americans, for political expediency and gain.
Thus, the question, “Can Obama Be Trusted to Protect America from Ebola?” is a valid one, even though the answer may not what we the people want to hear!

As the crisis at America’s border continues to rage out of control, America needs to find a permanent solution, one that will assure American sovereignty while preserving our language and culture.
Clearly, wholesale amnesty is NOT the answer. That was tried in 1986 with the Immigration Reform and Control Act(IRCA) which was signed into law by former President Ronald Reagan, and which legalized 3-4 million illegal aliens in America at the time.
Since IRCA was codified into law, another 20-30 million illegal aliens have invaded America. This population costs American taxpayers over $100 billion dollars a year in public benefits.
Thus, rather than solving the illegal alien crisis, amnesty serves only to encourage even more invasions by 3rd world non-English speaking, unskilled, impoverished aliens from south of our borders.
The current tsunami of illegals from Central America is a direct result of Barack Obama’s stubborn refusal to enforce existing laws.
Democrat politicians in search of a permanent political majority aggravate Obama’s criminal neglect with rhetoric which encourages aliens to migrate illegally, north, in pursuit of welfare, food stamps, health care, and other parts of the American Dream intended for American citizens.
In truth, illegal immigration is fueled by rampant Hispanic racism which holds that the US borders, the rule of law, and immigration statutes, which apply to everyone else, simply do not apply to Hispanics!
Hispanic racists like Luis Guiterrez and Loretta Sanchez, to name but two, bring hysteria to the fray by demanding that people whom have violated our laws and borders be rewarded for those criminal acts with a path to citizenship!
There is no justifiable reason for ignoring the rule of law, based on race, ethnicity, religion, or nationality.
Hispanics here illegally are no different than invaders whom are not Hispanic…they should be subjected to the full measure of the law.
Further, contrary to the foolish beliefs of former President George W. Bush, being “hard-working and good hearted” is not enough to warrant unlawful entry into America.
In summary, eradication of Hispanic racism by Hispanics and democrat politicians is essential to solving Americas long term immigration crisis.
That can only be solved by firm actions to secure the border and deport illegal aliens en masse, regardless of ethnicity, race or nationality.
The last thing America needs is for our out-of-touch community organizer to arbitrarily issue “Executive Orders” in order to circumvent the rule of law and dishonor the balance of powers set forth in our Constitution.
Hispanic racism, not conservative hate, is the problem!

According to government sources, approximately 11 million Americans receive benefits and are not required to work owing to medical disabilities, both physical and emotional.
Most on disability are ordinary, working-class Americans who wield little political power or influence in American society.
However, there is a prominent leader of the Democrat Party who “serves” in the US House of Representatives and whose bizarre behavior suggests that she should be isolated and placed on disability for the greater good and overall benefit of the America people.
That would be Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-San Francisco) who has made a career out of issuing outlandish, even stupid, statements on a variety of subjects, including her declaration that late-term abortion was “sacred ground”, even though she claims to be a devoted Catholic.
Pelosi’s tendency toward the eccentric devolved into a major breach of decorum on the floor of the US House last Friday when Pelosi took umbrage with statements made by Representative Tom Marino (R-PA), who during a debate over the bitter border crisis, recited the fact that while the House and Senate had been in Democrat hands, they’d done nothing to address immigration.
This did not sit well with Nancy Pelosi, who began interrupting, and eventually freaked out in a major breach of decorum.
From ABC News:
“We don’t have law and order,” Marino began as he wrapped up his comments on the border supplemental. “My colleagues on the other side don’t want to do anything about it.”
“You know something that I find quite interesting about the other side? Under the leadership of the former Speaker [Pelosi], and under the leadership of their former leader [Rep. Steny Hoyer], when in 2009 and 2010, they had the House, the Senate and the White House, and they knew this problem existed,” he continued. “They didn’t have the strength to go after it back then. But now are trying to make a political issue out of it now.”
At this point, Pelosi approached Marino, interrupted him, and began shouting something about how this wasn’t true. When a progressive standard bearer like the former Speaker begins yelling, it’s usually a good sign that you’ve hit the mark - something Marino noted.
“Yes it is true,” Marino replied directly to Pelosi, who was House speaker in those years. “I did the research on it. You might want to try it. You might want to try it, Madam Leader. Do the research on it. Do the research. I did it. That’s one thing that you don’t do.”
Marino concluded his remarks, but Pelosi wasn’t done yet. She kept yelling, pointing, and generally melting down - in full view of the cameras. Eventually, she even followed Marino up the aisle on the Republican side of the House in order to continue her finger-jabbing rant. GOP members had to get between the pair in order to calm things down.”
What a spectacle!
Pelosi, a 73 year-old-grandmother and solid Marxist actually had to be restrained from pursuing an elected member of Congress who dared express a view contrary to her own.
Surely if anyone needs to be on disability and off the public payroll, that person should be the wild lunatic from San Francisco, Nancy Pelosi!

Barring an unforeseen calamity of epic proportions, 90 days hence we the people will be blessed with the opportunity to right the direction of our great nation and alter the course of history.
Indeed, 90 days from today, November 4, will be election day in America. On that day, we the people will render judgement on the performance, or non-performance, of those whom have allegedly represented the unwashed masses in the halls of Congress.
On that day, it will be up to average American citizens to decide if our interests have been served, or disserved, by our elected Congressional representatives and senators.
We the people, and not spin doctors, professional pundits, or sound-bite masters will decide if those in the political class who toil on our behalf should be returned to office, or jettisoned out of public office for failing to meet the needs of the only people who matter, we the people and we the governed.
Finally, all of the blathering from paid liars and media experts will be set aside in deference to the wisdom and will of we the people.
On November 4, the truth about Obamacare and it’s value or harm will be answered objectively and decisively by the little people, average Americans who do not hold powerful positions of power with which to decline Marxist health care with impunity.
Finally, a national consensus can be rendered on the success or failure of the economy, the new reality with respect to jobs and income, the outrageous level of federal debt, and out-of-control spending.
Is America headed in the right direction for future generations, or are we headed to a future not unlike that of our third-world neighbors in Mexico and Central America?
We the people will answer those questions on November 4!
Just as importantly is the issue of borders, language, and culture. Is America still a sovereign nation where the rule of law prevails, or are our borders and laws correctly seen as racist relics from the past, subject to unilateral mandates by a tyrannical president whom is more interested in advancing the political fortunes of his political allies, than preserving time-tested traditions and democratic standards of the American republic.
We the people will enlighten the governing class on that question on November 4!
Does the recent decline and fall of American prestige and influence throughout the world reflect the will of the American people to unilaterally relinquish our claim to Exceptionalism and inherent obligation to lead? Is second or third best, or worse, now acceptable to the average American? Is strength of moral conviction now an “old school” notion to be abandoned in favor of being a compliant “world citizen” ?
November 4 can and should be a revelation—a learning opportunity—for Barack Obama and the army of Marxists now in control of Washington, D.C.
Indeed, November 4 should be a day of “ethics cleansing” where the power vested in dangerous people like Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Luis Guiterrez, etc. is reclaimed on behalf of those who believe in fairness, freedom, the rule of law, and the America way!
If the people vote responsibly, November 4 can mark the start of another American revolution, and the official “lame duck” status of Barack Obama!

In much the same manner as December 7, 1941 and September 11, 2001 are remembered as tragic days of doom and death in American history, so it is that August 4, 1961 should be designated an official “day of mourning” to commemorate the birth of Barack Hussein Obama, and the withering impact that that misguided, evil life has had on the American people and our precious form of self-governance.
The Obama effect has heaped intolerable suffering on nearly everyone in America, save only illegal aliens and Islamic terrorists, by decimating the national economy, health care system, religious and free-speech Constitutional protections, military defenses, national sovereignty, language and cultural traditions, and the integrity of free and open elections.
Worse of all, the Obama influence has smothered the American spirit and drive to excel. Indeed, the pursuit of excellence is now regarded as an dastardly evil, spawned by racist instincts which occur naturally in a society which countenances unchecked capitalism.
In the span of just six years, Barack Obama has transformed America from a vital, prosperous beacon of hope to the entire world into a third-world slum where the rule of law has been replaced by tyrannical rule from a mad dictator operating out of the Oval Office, with the blessings of a complicit mainstream media.
Now, on the occasion of yet another birthday for America’s worst-ever president, the Obama effect takes on the character of a fatal disease known as Ebola which our helter-skelter Commander-in-Chief may actually be importing.
As reported, in part, at the reference:
A leaked intelligence analysis from the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) reveals the exact numbers of illegal immigrants entering and attempting to enter the U.S. from more than 75 different countries.
Among the significant revelations are that individuals from nations currently suffering from the world’s largest Ebola outbreak have been caught attempting to sneak across the porous U.S. border into the interior of the United States. At least 71 individuals from the three nations affected by the current Ebola outbreak have either turned themselves in or been caught attempting to illegally enter the U.S. by U.S. authorities between January 2014 and July 2014.
As if the influx of illegal aliens was not bad enough, the open borders policy of Barack Obama and the Democrat Party threatens to visit the devastating Ebola death sentence on our innocent nation.
August 4, 1961: A date truly worthy of infamy and national mourning by all Americans!

With each passing day and emergence of yet another “phony scandal”, it is clear that Barack Obama has neither the integrity, intelligence, or courage to do the “right thing” for the American people in furtherance of our traditional cultural values, the rule of law, and the US Constitution.
It is as though we the people have been abandoned, or worse, by the man who twice swore to protect and defend the nation and our Constitution against all enemies, and to faithfully execute the laws enacted by our duly elected representatives in the US Congress.
Sadly, rather than working for we the people, it is as though Barack Obama has applied his talents and energy to destroying the very principles which have made America the most successful society in human history.
Rather than striving to unite the diverse interests and needs of 330 million people into goals and objectives which would benefit the greatest number of citizens, Obama has seen fit to pit race against race, citizens against illegal aliens, religious against non-believers, young against old, and rich against poor, all for the purpose of dividing the nation in a manner that will, by his sinister calculations, provide the greatest electoral advantage for his progressive agenda and political allies on the far left.
Thus, America is burdened with ObamaCare, an unworkable, ill-advised, take-over of 16 % of the American economy by leftist thieves who know next to nothing about the health professions, and, more significantly, whom do not genuinely care about the well-being and health of the American people.
The Obamamites game is to pay homage to the progressive agenda through distortions and lies spread in the mainstream media, and to hell with whether or not health care is actually strengthened or weakened.
Therefore, when ObamaCare fails to deliver on the promise to cover more people while reducing costs, an imbecilic notion to begin with, Obamacare defenders ignore the facts and simply point with brag to the number of people previously uninsured whom are now covered.
The fact that more Americans suffer from Obamacare than benefit is ignored by progressive goons and mainstream media duds.
As with health care, Barack Obama’s policies on American sovereignty, borders, language and culture, completely ignore the rule of law and the needs of American citizens—all for the sake of growing the Democrat Party through invading illegals coming to America for the free health care, welfare, food stamps, and other booty paid for by US taxpayers.
Unlawful invasions of the sovereign United States by Central American illegals is in direct response to the “Open Borders” nonsense spewed by Obama, Pelosi, Reid, and by Hispanic racists like Luis Gutierrez of Illinois, and Loretta Sanchez of California who harbor the strange, un-American notion that the rule of law does not apply to people of Hispanic heritage.
According to the likes of Gutierrez, Sanchez, and Democrats in general, American borders and laws currently on the books simply do not apply to Hispanics because….they are Hispanic!
Even more distressing is the fact that President Obama apparently believes that he is justified in ignoring or changing immigration laws to accommodate Hispanic racism!
This from the man who promised to usher in the “Post-racial era” in American politics!
The implosion of Obamacare and the illegal immigrant crisis fostered by the Obama administration are but two dramatic examples of a tragically failed presidency and the equally calamitous inability of we the people to deal with unchecked tyranny.
The big question: Who will defend America? Does anyone care anymore?
