  1. “Several key journalists’ groups have written a letter to President Barack Obama to complain about the White House’s lack of transparency and its “politically driven suppression of news and information about federal agencies.”

    After 6 years, they are just now addressing the lack of transparency by this administration. What took them so long? It is their lack of news reporting that got Obama elected a second term.

  2. “Obama backs Israel on Gaza” –

    During the same speech he heaped praise on Mahmoud Abbas as being “committed to non-violence and co-existence and cooperation with Israel” while hammering Netanyahu for not caving in to unreasonable demands made by the Palestinians. Via Times of Israel: Israel’s ongoing occupation of the West Bank is wrong and leads to regional instability and dehumanization…

    Obama would gladly back Israel …yeah, sure he would and right into the sea.

    • Exactly Sadie. Obama talking out of both sides of his mouth.
      I don’t believe Netanyahu is foolish enough to believe anything ona says an backing Israel, except into the sea.

    • What an optic. The masked guy and the president make a complete picture, don’t they? Horse’s head + horse’s ass.

      I’m amazed the secret service allowed Obama near that guy! I’m not even allowed to wear my sunglasses inside my bank.

  3. Words, words; the President doesn’t want billions to “fast track deportations”, no – he wants this money to fast track deportation “hearings”.
    Who among us believes that these hearings will result in a hundred thousand deportations of little children, uh, no one. More than likely, they’ll be declared “refugees” and the money set aside for deportation will be used to bring their parents, siblings, and close friends to the US to take care of the little darlings.
    Just how stupid does the Obama WhiteHouse think we are?

    re: the EPA wanted to garnish paychecks
    Huh, paychecks of individual citizens who have crossed the dictates of the EPA are now up for grabs simply by their say-so. This isn’t about fining corporations or business concerns for polluting our environment, but about Mr&MrsJones mismanaging their personal property in a manner that violates the ever increasing regulations of this agency.

  4. WSJ journalist arguing on Varney and Co. for open borders, saying the WSJ editorial board has always argued for free flow of money and free flow of labor. Argues for legalizing the people here today — productive members of society. It is a stupid semantic argument. No wonder we don’t get anywhere.

    • What? Let the whole world in? In Mexico we have ONE American locked up for such a long time because he crossed their filthy border and I do mean filthy. And Obama does nothing to help the American because the American had some guns that he was transporting home. Obama hates guns so he won’t help the American in prison, he’s a real anti-American S.O.B. not to help get the guy out of a Mexican prison. Meanwhile he has all these guns around his ugly ass protecting him from the masses, Also now besides millions of bullets protecting him, he has lots of dogs protecting him, he’s so scared.
