Folks, I’m delighted to say that there really are people who do not forget the deaths of innocent Americans at the incompetence of Barack Obama and company. I read liberal drivel all the time spouting off “what happened to the ‘Benghazi Scandal” … oh, nothing to see, just another right-wing ‘conspiracy'” “What happened to the “Fast and Furious ‘scandal’? … nothing to see but another right -wing conspiracy.” I get so sick of these morons … but I digress.
Well, it looks like the family of Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry might … maybe, get some truth. After years of stonewalling and the butt-buddies Barack and Eric Holder withholding information, Judicial Watch got a federal judge to order the DOJ to turn over the documents that Barack Obama, who claimed to know nothing about, but then proclaim “executive privilege,” over, coincidently, the same day that Eric was held in contempt of Congress.
No liberals, there’s no “scandal.” There is just a dead American and hundreds of dead Mexican citizens because of team Obama. And liberals, there are some folks that won’t let Obama, the media, you and the rest of your sword playing pals, through lying, deceit, fraud, intimidation, stonewalling and the repetition of Democrat talking points bury the truth.
BREAKING: Judge Orders DOJ to Release Fast and Furious Documents Withheld From Congress Under Obama Executive Privilege Claim
Thanks to a Freedom of Information Act Lawsuit pursued against the Department of Justice by government watchdog Judicial Watch, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia has ruled documents being withheld from Congress under President Obama’s claim of executive privilege must be turned over. Obama made the claim on the same day Attorney General Eric Holder was voted in criminal and civil contempt of Congress in June 2012.
“This order forces the Obama DOJ, for the first time, to provide a detailed listing of all documents that it has withheld from Congress and the American people for years about the deadly Fast and Furious gun running scandal,” Judicial Watch released in a statement.
The FOIA lawsuit has been ongoing for 16-months and is now proceeding after a lengthy delay. The Justice Department originally asked the court for an indefinite hold on a FOIA request from Judicial Watch, citing executive privilege and an ongoing investigation. That indefinite hold request was shot down more than a year ago.
The documentation DOJ is required to now turn over is a “Vaughn index” of “all requested Fast and Furious materials from a June 2012 Judicial Watch FOIA request.”
A Vaughn index must: (1) identify each document withheld; (2) state the statutory exemption claimed; and (3) explain how disclosure would damage the interests protected by the claimed exemption.” In ordering the DOJ to provide Judicial Watch the Vaughn index, the Court ruled, “In this circuit, when an agency is withholding documents under exemption claims, courts require that the agency provide a Vaughn index so that the FOIA requester – at a distinct informational disadvantage – may test the agency’s claims.”
There are left-wing suck-faces still blubbering over the tens of thousands of little Moses and little Jesus like children flooding the U.S. border. “We need to look after these precious little ones. But I can’t take any into my home. I’m too busy and I’m poor myself. So maybe some of you gawd-fearing right-wingers should do it!”
I’m sure most of us know the “little ones” we’re referring to. I had to laugh at one guy who wrote something like these kids are better immunized than American kids. These undocumented children traveled many miles through dangerous lands and come to our border, many of them with their medical records in their hands.
Well, I hate it when liberals are wrong … but they usually are. And I can tell you why. They make stupid statements and decisions based on emotions. Now I suppose that’s okay, but what makes liberals dangerous is they attempt to play on everyone else’s emotions to get what they want. It’s all very touching really … “Be Christian and take some “refugees” into your home.” It doesn’t matter if you infect your own kids with Chicken Pox, Measles, T.B. …
Instead of seeing the children flooding the borders as being potentially infected with diseases, as long as it doesn’t affect them, they are just children in need of help … the reality of the matter is many of these kids have never seen a doctor, let alone have their medical records in their hands.

Chicken pox outbreak puts illegal immigrant facility on lockdown
The federal government’s new facility to house illegal immigrant families surging across the border has been put on lockdown because of chicken pox, with no immigrants allowed to be transferred in or out, a congressman said this week.
Hundreds of illegal immigrants being kept at the campus of the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Artesia, New Mexico, are being treated for and vaccinated against chicken pox after an outbreak, said Rep. Steve Pearce, the Republican congressman whose district includes Artesia.
“As the FLETC facility reaches maximum capacity, I am increasingly concerned for the health and safety of the women and children at FLETC and for the local community. The virus, that has caused two residents to be put in isolation, has halted all departures,” Mr. Pearce said.
He said he’s asked the Homeland Security Department, which runs the facility, to be available to handle calls from the community.
The chicken pox outbreak is the latest hiccup for federal officials struggling to gain a handle on the surge of illegal immigrants from Central America this year.
While most of the attention has been on the children traveling without their parents, the border has been flooded by an almost equal number of families from Central America — usually women bringing their children with them. While unaccompanied children were being turned over to social workers, the families were eligible for quick deportations — except the government had fewer than 100 beds to hold the thousands of people being apprehended.
The Artesia facility was supposed to be an answer to that, with officials saying it could house hundreds more woman and children.
Homeland Security Secretary Jeh Johnson visited Artesia earlier this month and said it was proof that the U.S. can hold and deport some of the surge of illegal immigrants.
Medical issues have been a major concern for U.S. officials as they grapple with the surge. All of the immigrants are being screened for health issues — and in many cases, it marks the first time they’ve ever seen a doctor, border officials and volunteers have told The Washington Times.
Remember folks, they are nearly all unaccompanied children coming across the border. Unaccompanied, vaccinated, ruddy cheeked little toddlers simply fleeing unspeakable violence in their home countries … Some are like Moses. Some like baby Jesus. Some Democrat voters … whoops … sorry, that’s “right-wing propaganda.”

EXCLUSIVE: Report reveals ‘disturbing trend’ of brazen attacks against border security by gangs, drug and human traffickers
EXCLUSIVE: A game warden hit in the head with a rock while trying to seize a raft. Police officers wounded in an hours-long standoff with a gang member wanted for murder. Criminals spewing obscenities and death threats at local cops before asking for – and receiving – medical treatment.
And that was just last week.
A weekly report distributed by a Texas state agency to senior law enforcement officials paints a grim picture of the Mexican border, where authorities regularly confront illegal immigrant gang members and draw automatic gunfire from across the Rio Grande, and where local, state and federal authorities fight a never-ending battle against drug smugglers.
The most recent Border Operations Sector Assessment report compiled by the Texas Department of Public Safety’s Border Security Operations Center, dated July 25 and obtained by FoxNews.com, details local and federal authorities encountering smugglers carrying millions of dollars’ worth of marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamine, some of which was found in vehicles filled with biblical passages and religious items; federal agents being assaulted and shot at; gang members brazenly approaching people in their homes; and ranch workers witnessing men crossing into the U.S. wearing camouflage and carrying long guns and automatic weapons.
“In recent weeks the traffic appears to have slowed slightly, yet assaults on law enforcement have increased. This is a disturbing trend that needs to be addressed,” Chris Cabrera, vice president of the National Border Patrol Union, Rio Grande Valley Sector, told FoxNews.com.
“It is paramount that we get this problem under control. It is evident that we need more agents in the field to address the various threats posed to law enforcement as well as to our nation.”
Whenever I read some liberal drivel about how Republicans and conservatives care only for making money and taking away from the poor and downtrodden I have to laugh at their hypocrisy. I laugh at just how stupid they really are. I laugh at how they worship at the feet of some of the most corrupt people on the planet. They fawn over a proven liar of a president who in turn laughs at their stupidity. They grovel over the mention of Bill and Hillary Clinton, who in turn laughs at their stupidity and gullibility. Liberals surely are willfully ignorant and stupid beyond anything imaginable. I read once where one proclaimed that he/she wore that stupidity as a “badge of honor”; it’s a “badge of honor” to be ignorant and stupid!
The Clintons are as much if not more … well … I’m not sure if one could be more corrupt than Barack Obama … but they’re at least on and even pace with him. I think in the greed department I can’t think of anyone more greedy than Bill and Hillary Clinton.
Judicial Watch has issued the findings of a lawsuit over the conflict of interest and use of the State Department to line the pockets of the Clintons. Bill Clinton earned about $48 million giving speeches around the world while Hillary was Secretary of State.

JW Forces Release of Clinton State Department Conflict of Interest Docs
Documents Detail Road Map of over 200 Conflict-of-Interest Rulings that led to $48 Million in Income for Clinton Entities
(Washington, DC)—Judicial Watch announced today the release of more than 200 conflict-of-interest reviews by State Department ethics advisers of proposed Bill Clinton speaking and consulting engagements during Hillary Clinton’s tenure as secretary of state. The documents were obtained as result of a federal court order in a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed against the State Department on May 28, 2013 (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of State (No. 1:13-cv-00772)). The lawsuit is ongoing.
June 2011 documents show that the State Department approved a consulting arrangement with a company, Teneo Strategy, led by controversial Clinton Foundation adviser Doug Band. The Clintons ended the deal after only eight months, as criticism mounted over Teneo’s ties to the failed investment firm, MF Global.
Mr. Clinton’s office proposed 215 speeches around the globe. And 215 times, the State Department stated that it had “no objection.”
Mr. Clinton’s speeches included appearances in China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, United Arab Emirates, Central America, Europe, Turkey, Thailand, Taiwan, India and the Cayman Islands. Sponsors of the speeches included some of the world’s largest financial institutions—Goldman Sachs, Bank of America, Deutsche Bank, American Express and others—as well as major players in technology, energy, health care and media. Other speech sponsors included a car dealership, casino groups, hotel operators, retailers, real estate brokers, a Panamanian air cargo company and a sushi restaurant.
“These documents are a bombshell and show how the Clintons turned the State Department into a racket to line their own pockets,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton. “How the Obama State Department waived hundreds of ethical conflicts that allowed the Clintons and their businesses to accept money from foreign entities and corporations seeking influence boggles the mind. That former President Clinton trotted the globe collecting huge speaking fees while his wife presided over U.S. foreign policy is an outrage. No wonder it took a court order to get these documents. One can’t imagine what foreign policy issues were mishandled as top State Department officials spent so much time facilitating the Clinton money machine.”
Under established protocols of the State Department, and supplemented by a December 2008 Memorandum of Understandingbetween the Clinton Foundation and Obama Presidential Transition Team, a designated ethics official from the State Department’s legal office was assigned to review any “potential or actual conflict of interest” for Mrs. Clinton while she served as secretary of state. Copies of all decisions were sent to a top adviser to Secretary Clinton, Cheryl Mills, who served as counselor and chief of staff at the Department of State.
The Washington Examinerpublished a report today on the documents by Judicial Watch Chief Investigative Reporter Micah Morrison and Examiner Senior Watchdog Reporter Luke Rosiak. Morrison and Rosiak note that Mr. Clinton “earned $48 million while his wife presided over U.S. foreign policy, raising questions about whether the Clintons fulfilled ethics agreements related to the Clinton Foundation during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as Secretary of State.”
According to the State Department documents:
Little wonder Mrs. Clinton couldn’t think of one thing she accomplished while Secretary of State. She was too busy setting up the cash opportunities for Bill.

I have suggested in previous writings that Hussein Obama is a closet Muslim, which translates to an adherent of Islam. Some would argue that this is incorrect and that he is simply a staunch supporter. He assures us he is a Christian. Lying (taquia) is permitted, even encouraged if it benefits Islam.
We must judge Hussein Obama as the “elected” President and Commander in Chief of our military first by his words:
7/27/14 On the Occasion of Eid-al-Fitr – In the United States, Eid also reminds us of the many achievements and contributions of Muslim Americans to building the very fabric of our nation and strengthening the core of our democracy.
“The future must not belong to those who slander the Prophet of Islam”
“The sweetest sound I know is the Muslim call to prayer”

There’s no doubt the Barack Obama is a joke of a president. Personally, I don’t even think he’s eligible for the office (but that’s another topic) and certainly he’s been out of his league even if he is legitimate. He started his first term with the lies that he would protect and defend the Constitution. Bad start there Barack.
Anyway, the guy has been an embarrassment to America and hands down the absolute worst president in U.S. history. Liberals can defend him all day long using the exact same talking points that he uses but which have become so asinine they ring as hollow as a bell. Liberals can defend him also with their “I think” “I believe” “I say” and other drivel which adds up to zero.
Obama the Blamethrower
Is Obama the most pathetic president in American history? That was a rhetorical question.
Barack Obama promised so much: to heal our racial divisions, slice the deficit, provide health care that was cheaper, more widely available and that would not add one dime to the deficit. More grandly, he promised to stop the rise of the oceans and heal the planet. He was so cool. He was transcendent –an enlightened being — a “Lightworker” and a “sort of God.”
Yes…well…how did all that work out?
Critics have judged him by his own words and he has been found wanting. The meaningless chant “Yes We Can,” hypnotic to so many during the Obama hysteria, now reads like a high school motivation poster curling at the edges because actually he can’t do (fill in the blank).
The cascade of failures are too numerous to list but a good proxy for all of them is the judgment of Americans. They consider him incompetent; think he is untrustworthy and lies about major issues, and that he cannot be trusted to make the right decisions. People increasingly are blaming him for the border crisis, the civil war in Iraq, the IRS scandal, our poor standing in the world and much more (and there are still over two years to go).
A recent Quinnipiac poll found Obama is regarded as the worst president since World War Two. And now blame him for the sorry state of the nation. This is divine justice, since he has since the early days of his presidency been blaming others for his mistakes and record of incompetence. Indeed, no president has ever dodged responsibility for his own failings as has Obama. But the ruse can only last so long and the expiration date has been reached.
Obama can already be considered a failure as a president.
So as the Obama presidency (along with America and much of the Free World) spirals down the drain, how has he responded? Has he stepped up his work habits? Perish the thought! He has done the exact opposite.
Recently, there have been a spate of reports that have noted he has all but checked out of the Oval Office, as Matt Lewis writes in The Telegraph (maybe preparing for this mansion in this ritzy Southern California enclave of the rich and famous).
But he checked out long ago. Even liberal Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus astutely commented years ago that Obama was consistently AWOL (Obama’s Where’s Waldo Presidency) and consistently passive and missing in action when work was calling (see also my 2013 column “ Barack Obama, Derelict). Charles Krauthammer commented on the Vacant Presidency.
There is no there, there; but there never was.
So how does Barack Obama deal with his failure as a president?
There is denial and lying. Hence, his press secretary announced just recently that the world is more tranquil because Obama is president. Does it feel tranquil? Syria, Iraq, Ukraine, Afghanistan, all disintegrating as the blood flows. Al Qaeda controls more territory than ever before. Even former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright says the world is a mess.
American borders are more secure than ever before, according to the White House. Is it really?
One could list a litany of false self-congratulatory claims made by Barack Obama because the Don’t Worry, Be Happy President lives in a Wonderland and thinks he can tell Americans stories they will swallow since Americans are stupid.

Thousands Storm Boston in Massive Protest Against Housing Illegals in the State
Illegal immigration protesters in Boston came out in droves on Saturday in a public outcry against Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick’s decision to offer shelter in the state to unaccompanied minors.While there is not an official count of protesters who gathered on Boston’s Beacon Hill yesterday, it’s estimated to have been around 10,000 citizens in opposition to Patrick’s decision, according to Jeff Kuhner, host of WRKO’s The Kuhner Report.
The sheer number of attendees serves to demonstrate American’s general opinion on the immigration issue. “I’ve been to a lot of rallies on Beacon Hill. This is by far the largest I’ve seen,” Bree Sison of Boston’s WBZ-TV tweeted. Kuhner added to that…
