Boehner: I Didn’t Want ‘Interference’ From Obama In Netanyahu Speech

Originally posted on The Fifth Column:

This is  just the latest example of blatant disrespect of the 44th President of the United States from members of the Senate and Congress.  Not to mention an action bordering on treason.

Going over the POTUS head to invite an allied leader of a foreign country to make a speech in front of a joint session of Congress is…simply put,  not in their job…

In this new series, we will attempt to explore the main characters evolving around the 2010 Citizens United v. FEC Supreme Court decision. Each “card” will represent a character who symbolize one aspect of the Citizen United case.

These characters in fact are either directly linked to the case or are acting against or in favor of it. The full consequences of that decision still have to be determined as the 2012 Presidential campaign is still very much in its beginning. Yet, we can already evaluate the tremendous impact that Super PACs have on campaigns and political communication.

BARACK OBAMA | 44th President of the United States 

As a politician, Barack Obama faces the same constraints when it comes to the elections. The 44th President of the U.S needs to raise money if he hopes to win the general election in November. Problem, a week after the Citizens United decision, during the State of the Union Presidential address, Barack Obama clearly stated that he was against the Supreme Court justices ruling:

“Last week, the Supreme Court reversed a century of law to open the floodgates for special interests — including foreign companies — to spend without limit in our elections,” Obama said tonight. “Well, I don’t think American elections should be bankrolled by America’s most powerful interests, and worse, by foreign entities. They should be decided by the American people, and that’s why I’m urging Democrats and Republicans to pass a bill that helps to right this wrong.” (Read mor on L.A Times)

As a result, in May 2012, 

The pro-Barack Obama super PAC Priorities USA Action is still struggling to keep up with GOP super PACs preparing to unleash millions of dollars in independent advertisements.

Priorities USA Action raised $1.6 million in April, according to federal records released late Sunday. It’s the smallest haul the group has pulled in since the meager $59,000 the group raised in January. (Read More on Politico)

Not surprisingly, wealthy liberal donors are reluctant to give to a Super PAC the President himself didn’t backed in the first place. 
His strategy is to adapt the successful 2008 grassroot campaign to the needs of the 2012 election, focusing on getting people involved more than high-dollar fundraiser. 

At the end of the day, these efforts to raise money will probably make Barack Obama the first Billion dollar President (in terms of campaign money).

We may come from different places and have different stories, but we share common hopes, and one very American dream.

Doug Ross @ Journal: Giuliani hits a nerve
By Investor’s Business Daily

Leadership: “We are five days away from fundamentally transforming the United States of America,” candidate Barack Hussein Obama said on Oct. 30, 2008, just before his election as our 44th president. Was it just rhetoric?

Many no doubt thought it was, chalking it up to boilerplate election-eve hot air. But now are we seeing — some would say tragically — what he meant.

Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani is being raked over the coals for saying he doesn’t really believe the president loves America, and he probably didn’t do himself or the Republican any favors by saying that. Democrats seem to be having a field day with his blunt remark.

But can the case be made? If you love something, do you seek to fundamentally transform it while endlessly summarizing its flaws?

This is the president, after all, who sat for two decades in the pews of Trinity United Church, where the Rev. Jeremiah Wright ranted that we should be saying not “God Bless America” but “God damn America” and that 9/11 was just one of America’s chickens “coming home to roost.”

The record does not show Obama ever walked out in protest, but it is recorded that Wright married the Obamas, baptized their daughters and is credited with the title to Obama’s book, “The Audacity of Hope.”

This is the president who served on a board with Bill Ayers, the Weather Underground terrorist who helped launch Obama’s political career in 1996, when Illinois state Sen. Alice Palmer introduced him to some of the district’s influential liberals.

What was essentially Obama’s first fundraiser was held at the home of Ayers and his terrorist wife, the equally infamous Bernadine Dohrn.

And of course we all remember Michelle Obama’s remark during the 2008 campaign: “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country.” Before that, might we assume she was somewhat ashamed of what her husband would later apologize for?

It is Barack Obama who repeatedly injected race into his campaigns, starting with a private meeting of donors in San Francisco on April 6, 2008, at which he famously told them of “small towns in Pennsylvania” and the Midwest beset by job losses in a changing economy.

He told of how “they get bitter, they cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them or anti-immigrant sentiment” to vent their frustrations.

As president, Obama would gut our military and withdraw our troops because he believed America was the world’s bully and the root of all its problems. But loving America means never having to say you’re sorry for its role in a world without which freedom would have vanished from its face.

Loving America means respecting its institutions, its laws and its Constitution. Obama has done none of that, ignoring Congress and the founding document as he grabbed his pen and his phone to rewrite ObamaCare and grant amnesty to illegal aliens on a whim.

Under Obama, American citizenship has been rendered meaningless as the American dream is supplanted by work permits, identification cards, get-out-of-jail-free cards for criminals, assorted welfare goodies paid for by American citizens, immunity from deportation and even de facto voting rights for illegal aliens.

Is it fair to wonder, as author Dinesh D’Souza insisted in his last book, if Obama is driven by a Third World, anti-American ideology that he got from a Kenyan father with a soft spot for communism?

In the president’s view, entrepreneurs who built America really “didn’t build that,” and the wealth they generated was stolen from others, to be redistributed from those who have worked hard for it to those who work not at all.

We could go on, but you get the idea. Giuliani’s remark may have been impolitic. But he raises provocative questions about the man who holds our fate in his hands.

The audacity of Al Sharpton

By Katie Pavlich

When Barack Obama was elected to be the 44th president of the United States, there were high hopes for what he could accomplish. A nation that had made its way past slavery, through a Civil War and beyond segregation was finally going to fully heal as Americans elected their first black president. Sadly, that promise and those dreams never came true. In fact, the opposite has happened. America’s race scars have been cut wide open, and the healing has been replaced with unnecessary and deceitful division. How? Obama’s decision to build a partnership with and lend credibility to one particular person is partially to blame.

MSNBC host, tax evader and proclaimed “Reverend” Al Sharpton is a top adviser to President Obama and has been since day one in the Oval Office. In fact, with more than 60 visits to the White House during Obama’s tenure, you could say Sharpton is one of the top advisers outside of paid staff. Heck, he’s even vacationed with the president on Martha’s Vineyard and has a close relationship with senior White House adviser Valerie Jarrett. He’s also played a key role in advising Obama about nominations to powerful positions inside the federal government, including a replacement for Attorney General Eric Holder as the nation’s top law enforcement officer.

President Obama spoke at Sharpton’s April 2014 National Action Network conference, where he praised and glorified him as a leader.

“I want to say, first of all, thank you to your leader, Reverend Al Sharpton. Give him a big round of applause,” Obama said, giving him even more legitimacy. Attorney General Eric Holder said similar things during a speech at the conference, going out of his way to repeatedly thank him for his friendship and longtime partnership.

Considering Al Sharpton has taught his followers and young men in the black community to judge and hate those born with a different skin color, it’s alarming how much access he’s had to the most powerful offices in the country. Sharpton is a liar, conman and professional manipulator. Throughout his years on the public stage, which have been many, the majority on the left have embraced his ideas and upheld him as a go-to source on problems plaguing the black community. Sharpton has been performing this act for years, and he’s finally made it to the A-list on the White House visitor’s log.

When “peaceful” protesters took to the streets of New York City for Al Sharpton’s Million Marchers, many of them chanted, “What do we want? Dead cops! When do want them? Now!”

Did Sharpton rightly condemn them? No. Instead, he offered soft rhetoric and tried to distance himself from his own supporters in order to evade responsibility for their actions. When NYPD officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu were executed, Sharpton had the audacity to turn himself into the victim and tried to gain sympathy from the press by playing an alleged death threat voicemail.

“Hey [n-word], stop killing innocent people. I’m going to get you!” the voicemail Sharpton played said. Is it legitimate? With Sharpton’s track record, who knows.

"I’ve had several like this. … We are now under intense threat from those that are misguided, by those that are trying to blame everyone from civil rights leaders to the mayor rather than deal with an ugly spirit that all of us need to fight,” Sharpton lamented. “The blame game will only lead to further kinds of venom and further division.”

How rich. The man who has made a living and a career spewing racial venom and inciting a false blame game for decades now wants everyone else to avoid … the blame game.

This isn’t the first time Sharpton has been on the side of the wrong “victim.” Cowards like Sharpton stoke bogus racial flames with gasoline and then run away crying politics or “blame” when real consequences happen, whether it’s the lives of young men being ruined by people like Tawana Brawley, or the families of NYPD officers Ramos and Liu who will never see them again.

If Al Sharpton and his ilk really worked to solve problems and true racial disparities in America, they’d work their way out of a job, out of money and, most importantly, out of power, which is why Sharpton has been championing the same causes for decades with little results to show for it.

Will President Obama ever condemn Sharpton? Will Holder? No, and it’s because they truly agree with his ideas and believe in his positions, regardless of whether those ideas and positions are based in fact or help the country move forward.

Like the brave police officers of the New York City Police Department have turned their backs on Mayor Bill de Blasio, it’s about time the same be done to Sharpton.
