Last night, when King Obama announced his decree, to act unilaterally on immigration, he said:
Are we a nation that accepts the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms? Or are we a nation that values families, and works together to keep them together?Obama, the most radically pro-abortion president we have ever had, is concerned about the "cruelty of ripping children from their parents' arms"?
Where's Obama's compassion for the unborn children, the weakest and most vulnerable?
Many were disgusted by that statement from Benito Obama, and rightly so.
Read reaction, via Twitchy.
You know, I have to say this guy really makes me sick. I mean, he really, really makes me sick.
Just a little over two weeks ago, the American people overwhelmingly elected Republicans, stripping power from the Democrats.
Obama understood what this election meant.
OBAMA: I'm not on the ballot this fall... but make no mistake, these policies are on the ballot.Right.
AND WE REJECTED OBAMA'S POLICIES.
Obama doesn't care. The guy is lawless, no controlling legal authority.
Remember when Obama said, "Elections have consequences" and "I won"?
Under our system, elections do matter. They have consequences. This time, Obama and the Democrats lost. They were destroyed. The people spoke.
So what does Obama do? He puts on a crown and rules like he's a king, no checks and balances on his power.
We still do have the Constitution, don't we?
I expect Republicans and Democrats to uphold it.
I expect Americans to demand that much.
Do we still have three branches of government?
The Republicans damn well better exert their authority rather than sitting on the sidelines as our system, our country, collapses.
Goverment of the people, by the people, for the people - not people ruled by an emperor or king, not people oppressed by a dictator.
ARE WE A NATION THAT ACCEPTS THE TYRANNY OF RIPPING THE CONSTITUTION FROM THE PEOPLE? OR ARE WE A NATION THAT VALUES OUR CONSTITUTIONAL SYSTEM, AND WORKS TOGETHER TO KEEP THAT SYSTEM TOGETHER?

Today's the day Obama declares himself king of the United States.
Obama was highly critical of the use of executive power by President George W. Bush.
Now, Obama doesn't believe in those silly three branches of government. He has a pen and a phone.
Kiss your country goodbye.
It's about time, I guess.
I was wondering how long TV Land was going to keep The Cosby Show on its schedule.
The Cosby Show is the latest casualty of Bill Cosby’s career as he faces increasing public scrutiny over new and long-existing allegations of sexual assault.I can't reconcile the many rape and sexual assault allegations being leveled at Bill Cosby and the character of Cliff Huxtable.
The nostalgia network TV Land was set to air several marathons of the beloved ’80s family sitcom, but on Wednesday pulled all re-runs of the show from its schedule, according to the Hollywood Reporter.
It doesn't work.
The reruns creep me out.
I was troubled by Bill Cosby's silence when he was questioned about the sexual assaults during the NPR interview last weekend. Not good.
Cosby, 77, has not publicly addressed the claims against him, which have now been made publicly by at least six women. In an NPR interview that aired over the weekend, Cosby refused to discuss the allegations.Some on the Right are saying Cosby is being targeted because of his alleged conservatism.
...As NPR's Eric Deggans wrote this week, "several recent events, including the 30th anniversary of The Cosby Show and the publication of the biography, have pushed media to reconsider Cosby's legacy."
Discussing the comedian's "huge, complicated" legacy, NPR's Gene Demby wrote in September:
"Cosby's renown has become less neat in the years since the show went off the air, his squeaky-clean family image tarnished by confessions of infidelity and allegations of sexual assault. His politics have become polarizing, and his name is invoked as a shorthand for a specific strain of black conservatism."
While it's possible Hollywood Leftists aren't eagerly rallying around him because of his occasional remarks suggesting that the African American community needs to do some soul-searching and take responsibility for those behaving badly, Cosby is not a conservative.
Is it really so out of line to voice the importance of people being held accountable for their actions and being responsible, productive members of society?
Is that really just a conservative thing?
It shouldn't be. Both conservatives and liberals should find common ground with something as basic and reasonable as that.
It's wrong if Cosby is being punished because of such remarks. It's wrong if Leftists are failing to defend him because he doesn't buy into the soft bigotry of low expectations.
However, it's not wrong to hold Cosby accountable for his own behavior. Multiple allegations of sexual assault must be addressed. There appears to be a pattern here. It's not just a he said, she said matter. It's a he said, she said, and she said and she said and she said and she said and she said matter.
What's crazy is that for so many years these allegations weren't given the attention they deserved.
What was that about?
I understand why Cosby wouldn't want to talk about the allegations.
But, it certainly does mess up his "comeback."
The problem I have with this whole thing is the uncertainty: Is Cosby being unfairly attacked, or is he the attacker, a sexual predator, a criminal?
I don't know. Very creepy.
The doubt is the problem. It's not OK to ignore allegations as serious as these. TV Land, NBC, and Netflix should walk away from him. There's really no other choice because the allegations are so awful.
It seems like Cosby's image is beyond repair.
The question: Is this what Cosby deserves?
Almost two years ago, Obama expressed his frustration with his lack of power to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants.
(Let's keep in mind what the term "illegal" means. It means people have come into to our country in violation of our laws. They are lawbreakers. They are here illegally. Yes, we are a nation of immigrants, but not a nation of ILLEGAL immigrants.)
Flashback, February 2013:
Poor Obama. He has a problem that he's struggled with for years.Flashback, March 2013:
He's not the EMPEROR OF THE UNITED STATES!
From the Weekly Standard:
OBAMA: This is something that I've struggled with throughout my presidency. The problem is, is that, um, you know, I'm the president of the United States, I'm not, uh, the emperor of the United States. Uh, my job is to execute laws that are passed.That's quite a problem.
If only Obama were free to dictate as he pleases, instead of being bound by the Constitution.
A couple of weeks ago, Obama informed the American public that he's not the "emperor of the United States."Katie Pavlich cites 22 times that Obama declared he did not have the authority for executive amnesty.
He cited that fact as a problem....
Poor guy. He says he has to struggle with that, not being emperor.
Today, Obama points out that he's not a dictator.
On several occasions, he's acted like one, ignoring the Constitution, stripping Americans of our rights. He's circumvented Congress. He declared the Senate to be in recess, completely disregarding the separation of powers.
Sometimes, Obama is a dictator. He just says he's not.
This could be Obama's "I am not a crook" moment.
OBAMA: I am not a dictator. I'm the president.Obama doth protest too much, methinks.
Apparently, whatever concerns Obama had in the past about his power no longer trouble him. He's decided he is the "emperor of the United States." He's decided that he is a dictator.
What he once considered a problem doesn't exist in his mind anymore.
As Mark Levin says, Obama shouldn't be called the president if he's going to act outside the powers of the presidency.
"Benito Obama" fits.
Obama doesn't need no stinking Constitution!

As the nation braces for the violence we've been told is guaranteed to erupt in Ferguson, and perhaps around the country, The Right Scoop takes note of comments made by Milwaukee Police Chief Ed Flynn on November 6.
From The Right Scoop:
HOLY CRAP: SEND THIS POLICE CHIEF TO FERGUSON BECAUSE THIS IS THE TRUTH THEY NEED TO HEAR!
Man oh man this is awesome. Police Chief Edward Flynn spoke to reporters on November 6 after a Fire and Police Commission meeting concerning the shooting of Dontre Hamilton. And he doesn’t hold back with the brazen truth about people who care more about a black teen shot by a cop than they do about all the violent crimes against blacks in Milwaukee, something he says is the true threat to the racial disparity.
It's about reality.
Too bad so many leaders, locally and nationally and in the Oval Office, don't have the guts to talk about reality.
This president is a disgrace.
After a brutal, barbaric terrorist attack in Israel, Obama responds by saying too many Palestinians have died.
What is wrong with this guy? Seriously.
"Try to work together to lower tensions and to reject violence"?
Hey, Obama! Two Israelis didn't go into a house of worship and slaughter innocent Palestinians!
Two Palestinians, Odai Abed Abu Jamal, 22, and Ghassan Muhammad Abu Jamal, 32, committed that atrocity.
Obama's sympathies are with Palestinians.
We've known that for years.
Today, 151 years ago, President Abraham Lincoln delivered one of the most enduring speeches in American history - The Gettysburg Address.
Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth, on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.So many Americans gave their lives for our way of life. The sacrifice they made to defend our freedom is so great.
Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure. We are met on a great battle-field of that war. We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live. It is altogether fitting and proper that we should do this.
But, in a larger sense, we cannot dedicate—we cannot consecrate—we cannot hallow—this ground. The brave men, living and dead, who struggled here, have consecrated it, far above our poor power to add or detract. The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us—that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here gave the last full measure of devotion—that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain—that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom—and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
"From these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here, gave the last full measure of devotion -- that we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain."
Remember last year, in celebration of the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, there was an effort to teach Lincoln's immortal words?
LEARN THE ADDRESS
To celebrate the 150th anniversary of the Gettysburg Address, documentarian Ken Burns, along with numerous partners, has launched a national effort to encourage everyone in America to video record themselves reading or reciting the speech. The collection of recordings housed on this site will continue to grow as more and more people are inspired by the power of history and take the challenge to LEARN THE ADDRESS.
Obama's recitation of the speech was notable for what he DIDN'T say.
Flashback, from Breitbart: Obama Removes 'God' from Gettysburg Address
Washington DC talk show host Chris Plante reported today that Barack Obama omitted the words "under God" from the Gettysburg Address when reciting the great speech for a Ken Burns documentary.
Burns had filmed all living presidents as well as various Hollywood personalities and luminaries to pay homage to the speech which was delivered by Abraham Lincoln 150 years ago, today.
Plante broke the story on Washington DC talk radio station WMAL on his mid-morning program, "The Chris Plante Show."
Curiously enough, in his version of the speech, President Barack Obama's delivery contained an omission - in a line that every other celebrity delivered as "that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom," the President left out the words "under God."The video of Obama's rendition of the speech can be seen below. It is unlisted (for now) on the Ken Burns YouTube page.
Not surprising that Obama did that. Not at all.

Antoine Devon Pettis is going to be famous, and not in a good way.
Antoine Devon Pettis (Photo/Milwaukee County Sheriff's Office, via the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
Look at him. All smiles.
From the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel:
A Milwaukee man has been charged with sexually assaulting a 101-year-old woman in her home in September.Oh, my God.
Antoine Devon Pettis, 20, faces charges of burglary, aggravated battery and second degree sexual assault, which carries a penalty of up to 25 years in prison.
According to the criminal complaint and Milwaukee police:
The victim was asleep at her home on the city's north side, where she lived alone, when she heard a noise and realized someone was in her bedroom. She asked who was there and why, but was only told "shut up" and slapped several times in the face.
The attacker then grabbed the victim's wrists, flipped her on her stomach, sexually assaulted her and left. The woman waited on her bed until she thought the intruder was gone, then went to her door and began yelling for help.
Police arrived to find the woman bleeding from her face and with blood stains on her legs and buttocks.
She was taken to a hospital and treated.
Pettis left behind DNA evidence at the scene. Detectives with the Milwaukee Police Department's Sensitive Crimes Division identified Pettis as a suspect on Thursday after his DNA revealed familial traits with those of a male relative, who was already in a DNA database. Investigators eventually matched DNA recovered from the woman's body and nightgown to Pettis' DNA.
Pettis is a monster.
Was it an invasion of the privacy of Pettis to use familial DNA to identify him?
HE RAPED A 101-YEAR-OLD WOMAN.
I'm glad he's in custody.
Thank you, DNA database.
Video, from FOX6 News:
Scott Walker made some statements that might suggest he's not really sold on running for president in 2016.
From The Hill:
Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker (R), a possible 2016 presidential candidate, raised the subject of Hillary Clinton's age when discussing when he might run for president.About Hillary's age:
"Whether it’s two years, six years, 20 years from now, because at 47, I mean I think about Hillary Clinton, I could run 20 years from now for president and still be about the same age as the former secretary of State is right now," Walker said in an interview with the local Fox affiliate published Sunday night.
...“I say this only half-jokingly, that you have to be crazy to want to be president," Walker said. "Anyone who’s seen the pictures of this president or any of the former presidents can see the before and after, no matter how fit, no matter how young they are, they age pretty rapidly when you look at their hair and everything else involved with it."
When John McCain ran for president in 2008, so much was said about him being too old and at death's door. (Remember buffoonish Matt Damon's declaration that McCain, if elected, probably wouldn't live to serve the entire term?)
McCain locked up the nomination at the age of 71 and he was 72 on Election Day.
Hillary will be 69 on Election Day 2016, only two years younger than McCain was 2008.
Why isn't her age an issue?
She is old.
Walker is right in terms of his age. He has plenty of time, twenty years, to run if that's what he wants to do.
The question: Is Walker "crazy" enough to want to be president, in two years?
Right now, he's far more experienced than Obama was when he ran for president. Walker would be a dramatically better president. No question about that.
Better than Obama and better than Hillary.
