“So Sue Me!” *Open Thread*

by

Thus speaks our President in his usual arrogant, condescending, flippant manner. Yes, he actually made that very statement recently:

Here’s why Obama’s flippant remark is so assholic: Republicans in the Congress have passed a NUMBER of bills. But the House ALONE does not pass laws. Without the Senate voting on bills, laws do not get passed or end up on the President’s desk. Unfortunately, the DEMOCRATIC led Senate under Harry Reid refuses to allow a lot of these bills to reach the floor or to be debated. So it isn’t Republicans by themselves that are gumming up the works, it is Democrats, too, chiefly Reid. But it is so much easier to blame EVERYTHING on the other party, that way neither Obama nor Reid ever have to be held to account.

But here is why the “I’ve Got A Pen And A Phone” BS from Obama’s little rant above in which he blithely shows massive disregard for the Constitution while blowing a lot of smoke and blame is even worse. That would be tis little compilation of rants during his 2007-8 campaign for job of President:

Yep – Obama claimed he “believes in the Constitution,” would “will obey the Constitution,” and would not “use signing statements as a way of doing an end run around Congress, alright?”

Huh. Well, THAT didn’t happen, did it? Not even close. Many liberals make this ridiculous claim that other presidents had MORE signing statements, yet they fail to acknowledge that there is a massive difference between Quantity, and QUALITY. When one willy-nilly changes the law and violates the Constitution, THAT is a massive difference. Especially when US Citizens are being arrested for engaging in those rights against actions that are illegal.

Oh, yes, that IS happening. From the Daily Caller:

John Henry, a Murrieta resident for over two decades, was told by local officers that the feds will be barricading streets.

“We’re being told that federal Marshals or ICE will be here in the next few days and that they are bringing riot gear,” Henry said. “They’re apparently going to be blocking off the street with concrete blockades so that no vehicles can get through. The River County Sheriff’s Department showed up last night and brought a huge watch tower that shoots up into the air 35 feet.”

Henry expressed his frustration with the “benefits” illegal immigrants are receiving for breaking the law, while legal citizens would be “pulled over and ticketed” if they were to “roll through a stop sign.” These benefits, courtesy of the American taxpayer, include food, housing, education, vocational training and legal counsel. The illegals are then delivered to their relatives in the country, who are not checked to see if they are in the U.S. illegally. (RELATED: Border Meltdown: Obama Delivering 290,000 Illegals To U.S. Homes)[…] (Click here to read the rest. Also related, “Obama’s Deputy Gives Wishy-Washy, Noncommittal Answers About Illegal Children and Border Security.”)

So, yeah – I’d like to sue Obama, too. And this is just the tip of the iceberg as to why. But to arrest US citizens for not only exercising their CONSTITUTIONAL rights, but trying to protect their communities from illegal aliens about whom little is known from medical history to criminal history (I’m thinking gangs for the older kids), is outrageous. UGH.

But that’s not the only thing about which I am outraged. While driving back home from my most wonderful vacation to the “Horse Capital of The World” (and I promise to share some of the photos and places I went), I heard a number of stories that just raised my ire in a big way. Another such story was more from Ed Klein and his book, Blood Feud: The Clintons vs. the Obamas. From the Daily Mail:

President Obama made a secret pact with the Clintons where he agreed to endorse Hillary in a 2016 run for the White House – in exchange for Bill’s seal of approval during his re-election campaign last year.

The explosive revelations are made in an exposé published this week on the Obama administration. It also claims that no love was lost between Bill Clinton and Obama before the deal was brokered.

According to campaign sources quoted in The Amateur by Edward Klein, Bill Clinton tried to have Hillary challenge Obama for the presidency during his last term.

[…]

Clinton’s 11th-hour support (in 2012) for Obama came with the condition that his wife would have the President’s support in 2016.

However, the book then claims that Obama began to reconsidered this idea – enraging Bill Clinton. […] (Click here to read the rest of this sordid story.)

In other words, as many of us suspected, a deal was struck for the Clintons to support Obama in 2008, and 2012, for Obama’s support in 2016. Uh, yeah. And I guess you know what is happening now, right? Is Obama going to keep his word? Ahahahahahaha, good one! Why anyone, including the Clintons. thought Obama would keep his word after all he has said and done is beyond me. Can’t believe ol’ Bill was had. But it seems he was. Nope, looks like he’s leaning toward someone who is being referred to as a “mini-me,” Elizabeth Warren. Oh, yeah – the Clintons, along with so many others, have been had. And we tried to tell them so.

Double UGH.

There is more going on, of course, including ISIS, now IS, declaring a Caliphate State. Yep, that winning “hearts and minds,” kowtowing, genuflecting, groveling, and negotiating with terrorists that Obama has been doing has really worked out well. They just LOVE us over there. Just kidding! All the kowtowing in the world is NEVER going to change the mindset of the Taliban, Al Qaeda, Hamas, and other radical Islamists. Never. Time to get serious about our national security, and all the threats we are now facing from the ISIS part of the world and potential for ISIS via our Swiss cheese border to the South (it isn’t just Latin Americans who can come through Mexico after all).

So, yeah, I’d like to sue Obama for these and many other reasons. How about y’all? This is an Open Thread!

    I have a couple more articles for your consideration. The first makes me just ill, truly ill, that this is how our veterans are being treated. As one commenter at the article noted, Obama treats illegal aliens better. That is the sad, obscene, infuriating, truth: http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/07/nurse-va-medical-staff-stole-morphine-from-dying-patients/?advD=1248,8382

    And then there is this, in a “We Saw This Coming From A Million Miles Away” Category: http://dailycaller.com/2014/07/07/irs-official-whose-computer-crashed-was-responsible-for-spinning-congress-on-targeting/?advD=1248,8382

    I was not surprised by Obama’s “sue me” remark. From the beginning of his administration the White House has been run like a Frat House. Add in Joe Biden, and Bill Clinton’s designating people who support the “Tea Party” as teabaggers and you have people with no integrity and even less class. (Although I’m not sure what less than none is I know it when I see it. I see it in Obama, Pelosi, Reid, Biden, Durbin, Schumer, Cumming and on and on and on.

    It isn’t just a matter of politics anymore, it’s a matter of common decency – and I don’t see any of that either.

    I thought the duty, sworn duty of the government was to obey and protect the Constitution and to protect the people of this country.

    Really? Looks to me like the federal government is far more interested in protecting a bunch of law-breaking illegals than the citizens.

    I don’t really care any more what happens to the illegals. Young or old they are here illegally and are breaking out laws and invading our country. And surprise, surprise, OUR president and OUR government are not only helping them, they’re cheering them on.

    This is no longer America. OUR freedom and OUR rights are gone.

    Just after the completion and signing of the Constitution, in reply to a woman’s inquiry as to the type of government the Founders had created, Benjamin Franklin said, “A Republic, if you can keep it.”

    Not only have we failed to keep it, most don’t even know what it is.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Marge, the quote from Franklin is absolutely spot on. And that is just the catch, isn’t it?

      I completely hear you abt the lack of even basic decency by these people. It is truly disturbing. Not only that, but the callous disregard for the law, for the impact of their decisions (like the tremendous cost of allowing in illegal immigrants willy-nilly), or Obamacare, or anything like that, and how much it COSTS us. They just do not care.

      Great comment, Marge.

      • kenoshamarge Says:

        I’ve known for a long time that most politicians ain’t worth spit. The knowledge that most media types aren’t either was “news” to me after Obama came on the scene. Now I find myself with so little respect for most elected officials and most “reporters”, let alone “activists” who cannot speaks except in jargon, that it frightens me.

        One of the few “reporters” I respect is Sharyl Attkisson. Here’s an article she wrote that I think is great. See what you think.

        The Big Unanswered Questions about the Child Illegal Immigrants

        http://sharylattkisson.com/the-big-unanswered-questions-about-the-child-illegal-immigrants/

        • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

          That is an outstanding article by Attkisson. Thank you for that, Marge. She asks some GREAT questions, and really hits the nail on the head.

          And again, I am not armored against what some of these kids are going through, not at all – my heart goes out to those in need, those fighting to get out of poverty, and away from violence. Absolutely. But as she noted, what has changed? There has been poverty in these countries, and there has been violence in these countries, for YEARS, but what has changed recently? And what role is Mexico playing in all of this? So many questions, I may have to put that article up as its own post…

    It’s all so depressing, isn’t it? Apparently one of the MSM news outlets did a story tracking a recently arrived illegal who was sent to a relative’s house and issued a time to appear in court. She never showed for the court hearing. No kidding? Then the reporter tried to track her at her relative’s house and she wasn’t there. No kidding?

    Also, there’s a long article on No Quarter about the convoluted situation re gun running to Syria that involved our Ambassador Stevens. Here’s the link. http://www.noquarterusa.net/blog/77229/the-prelude-to-benghazi/#more-77229. In one of the comments to this article is a detailed narrative about the involvement of our NATO ally,Turkey, in the care and feeding of ISIS.

    Makes you want to crawl up into a ball and pull the covers over your head.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Yes, Katherine, it truly is. Just when you think it cannot possibly get worse, it does. It is truly stunning the depths to which this Administration is taking this country.

      The illegal aliens allegedly showing up for court is just another case in point. Now Obama wants $3.7 BILLION to deal with these people: http://thehill.com/homenews/administration/211554-obama-wants-37b-for-border

      US Citizens are going hungry, have been hurting now, for YEARS, and we are supposed to be taking care of people who leave because of gang violence? Well, HELL, we have gang violence in OUR country. Chicago, for instance, has been fighting a growing gang problem for DECADES. Should the kids who don’t want to be around it be able to go into Canada illegally?? I cannot imagine Canada would be okay with that, pay for them to fly from one place to another, give them medical and mental care as well as a free education.

      I don’t mean to sound hard hearted, but the excuses really push the envelope. There is one MAIN reason all these people are coming, and they have said so themselves – because of the changes Obama made with his pen to existing law. THAT is why. I am all for LEGAL immigration, but I sure as hell am not for people who come here illegally getting better care than our veterans as a commenter at the DC article said, and other citizens do at our expense. That is ridiculous.

      I have hard for some time that there was an issue of gun running with Syria which is why Stevens was really where he was at the time. All sanctioned through our government, of course.

      It is all pretty depressing alright. Hey, thanks for the link!

    • kenoshamarge Says:

      I know what you mean by crawling into a ball and pulling the covers over your head. Some days the tempatation to curl into a fetal position, stick my thumb in my mouth and hide in a corner is almost overwhelming.

      Then I get mad, really mad, and the back won’t bend, the thumb wants to poke some of these weasels in the eye and my computer is in the corner so I go to the keyboard and I rant.

      Rants don’t do much except as a pressure valve. Keeps my head from exploding.

      • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

        Yes, those rants do help keep the head from exploding! And, it helps to know that we are not alone. As long as we speak out, others will know they are not alone, and more people will speak out. That is what seems to be happening now, or at least I hope so…

  4. kenoshamarge Says:

    Cartoonist Glenn McCoy captured the border catastrophe, and why this administration won’t do a damn thing about it, perfectly!

  5. foxyladi14 Says:

    Great post Amy. 🙂

  6. GinaR Says:

    Outstanding post, Amy. I wish I had something clever to say, but all I can do is shake my head in despair. What will it take for the left to wake up to all that is happening in this country? And now we’re literally being invaded and the welcome mat has been laid down by our government. Maybe the only thing that will wake people up is if their children are made ill by the illegals coming in who are carrying diseases previously eradicated in this country. And that thought is horrifying, that it will be our children who will suffer. I’ve lived more than 6 decades on this earth, and I’ve seen some hard things, but never have I seen the likes of our country being invaded by the tens of thousands of illegals (NOT refugees, as the left would like to spin it) that are pouring over our borders. My heart breaks for the children who will now have to grow up in this fundamentally transformed America, especially two that are near and dear to my heart.

    • Rabble Rouser Reverend Amy Says:

      Oh, thanks so much, Gina. And what you had to say was important indeed. I, too, worry abt what our country is becoming, and will become, what kind of legacy we are leaving those who are near and dear to our hearts.

      And no kidding abt the latest spin of the “refugees,” as the Left seeks to do the UN’s bidding (from what I heard on Special Report, that is who is pushing this new meme). While I certainly do think this country should provide asylum to those who are being persecuted and who are actively being threatened with death, there is a BIG difference between that, and wanting to move from a poor country to one (formerly) more economically viable. How the hell is that different than why most other immigrants want to come here, many of them LEGALLY?? To once again allow, encourage, and enable people to skip the line when others are still waiting is a slap in the face to them, and to the laws that govern this nation (or did).

      Oh, I also heard on Special Report tonight, from Jonah Goldberg, I think it was, that EACH ONE of these kids is going to cost us over $80k a PIECE, assuming this new almost $4bn thing goes through. Think abt that one and what that kind of money would mean to our CITIZENS.

      Uh, yeah…
