In the history of mankind, many republics have risen, have flourished for a less or greater time, and then have fallen because their citizens lost the power of governing themselves and thereby of governing their state. TR


Obama Condemns Killings

President Obama Saturday condemned the killing of two police officers in Brooklyn, asking people to “turn to words that heal.”

From the written statement, issued from Hawaii:

I unconditionally condemn today’s murder of two police officers in New York City. Two brave men won’t be going home to their loved ones tonight, and for that, there is no justification. The officers who serve and protect our communities risk their own safety for ours every single day – and they deserve our respect and gratitude every single day. Tonight, I ask people to reject violence and words that harm, and turn to words that heal – prayer, patient dialogue, and sympathy for the friends and family of the fallen.

  1. It took him a day to come up with that?

    And “I unconditionally condemn?” seriously? Let that sink in. He needs to say he condemns it? Was that a question? Such milquetoast words for the horrible act. I’m guessing it didn’t really bother him. He doesn’t sound bothered.

      1. Aha! I didn’t catch that. You’re right – strange wording.

        BTW, did he make his consolation calls to the familes of the fallen like he did to MsFluke when someone called her a bad name, or to the parents of StTravon, and GentleGiantBrown?

          1. Don’t forget his honoring the parents of a deserter in the Rose Garden.
            Obama has no honor….praises Holder, gets advice from Sharpton, lets Valerie run the country and then heads to the golf course with a prostitute patron.
            What shame he has brought to our country.

          1. And what does “unconditionally” condemn mean–what conditions COULD he put–the ones about how the protestors were just expressing their rights–even though most at this pt are white and SEIU members?

        1. Also he said he “knew in his bones” the Cuba move was “the right thing to do.” His bones–is that where future policies will come from also? (Don’t make the obvious joke…please with sugar)

    1. You are so right Troy. What an obvious piece of low-class garbage. Still plays golf after 2 policemen are murdered and he’s supposed to be the “President” of the country? Words can’t describe what a horrible individual he is. And the Republicans are as bad, funding these illegal acts for a whole year. They too should be thrown out in the trash like Obama. No different, same politicians who don’t care about America, just about themselves. Let’s get them out! Now!

  2. Let’s see now. You and Eric The Black have spent the last weeks telling us how the POLICE need to get their act together in dealing with the oppressed citizens — and encouraging people like Al Sharpton to incite more civil unrest. You even managed to get another magical final question at your “press conference” to further stir the pot.

    How about you tell the citizens to treat the heroes in blue (risking their lives every day to keep the peace) to RESPECT the POLICE for a change?

    That might be change we can believe in. It could even keep more of your voters alive.

    1. Quite simply he could have said weeks ago, Breathe Easy, Don’t Break the Law. Period.

      As should have Holder, Sharpton and DeBlasio. All the stuff they’re spewing now was never said prior to the murders.

  3. Lies, lies, and more lies.
    Now back to the golf course with his prostitute hiring buddy Bobby.
    Sharpton says he had called for non violence…Lie.
    Holder wants patience.
    They all need to be lined up and shot.
    Our country is hurting and it is going to get a lot worse as Obama “gets done with it.”

  4. After telling the protesters/rioters to ‘stay the course’ for weeks on end – what gall !!!! All of a sudden he has become camera-shy – issued a written statement. What a coward!

          1. X3
            That also brings up he takes the time to stand in front of the house with Berg. parents but shows no attention to the families of the two fallen heros.

          2. I do agree. I don’t even want to think what the MSM will be saying/not saying by tomorrow morning.
            Remember the rug?
            Remember the stuff hitting the fan?
            If the news goes to either place it will get lost.
            That is the the plan. IMO
            It is that or they are plain ignorant.

    1. Regarding the victims, when you strip men of their names, you strip them of their humanity, but in the case of the assassin, he doesn’t want the black-Muslim connection out there.

    2. These two dead cops don’t mean anything to him, thats why he didn’t know their names and you can be sure he wouldn’t honor any police with their names. Its almost as if he ordered their deaths especially when the crowd chanted dead cops and weren’t told to shut up about that.

  5. All of a sudden he became camera-shy. Issued a written statement.

    Also, George Stephanopoo-lus just skpped over the headline executions and went directly to the Sony fiasco. The lesser of two evils, I suppose.

    1. All about Sony on MTP, too–with that actor Kal Penn…Someone asked why he was there…because he was invited, he said. This gets dumber and dumber–what a good name for a movie, by the way.

      1. Saw part of that, and I agree.
        I find it so amusing that the liberal Hollyweirds are outraged at not being able to say or film whatever they want. It’s like “Hello? remember how you silenced the conservative actors and actresses?”.
        Hypocrites. Big ones.

        1. Well, I’d never in my life watch a stupid comedy as this movie is supposed to be, and I will not watch if it comes out on DVD or on the internet. I have other ways of showing my support for the First Amendment.

          1. The vast majority of movies released these days aren’t worth watching. The Brits are far outdoing North America in the quality of their films and television series.

          2. I just made that comment because certain people in Hollywood, DC, and the liberal press are making a big point about how we should all watch this dumb movie in defiance of NK’s attack on our First Amendment.

    1. unleashed. Obama will not be able to this genie back in the bottle. And his comments pale in comparison to all the crap about cops killing blacks that he has backed in the past.

      1. It goes beyond Sharpton. I would say that Obama has opened Pandora’s box. Now a challenge for you, Grace: conflate that with your genie in the bottle AND bring in what Sadie said about squeezing the toothpaste back into the tube.

        1. Well,there is a story going around…late one morning Baracus I Hussein Obama was having his teeth brushed. When his loyal servant Al reached for the toothbrush made of special imported goat hair bristles Baracus ‘s repetilian eyes alerted to a small box that the eminence grise ValJar had given him and cautioned that that it contained many powers, but it should never be opened ( by the likes of a dullard like him- artistic license here). Sort of like how the red button should never be pushed.

          After the toothbrushing and rinse, BHO commanded Al to open the box. Obediently Al did as he was told. Soon the room was filled with a LA worthy smog and a genie appeared. Amazingly the genie was in the form of Baracus I’s former royal toothbrusher Al — small and consumptive looking with a big head, eyes more even reptilian than those of Baracus and extraordinary teeth.

          Genie Al rubbed his skinny little hands and fingers together and said to Baracus I — Your Wish is My Command.

          And now For the Rest of the Story ….

    1. The AP is lamenting today “the backlash over the bloodshed could derail the protest movement that has grown out of the deaths of Michael Brown and Eric Garner.”

      It could also derail their daily, never-ending stories stoking the flames.

  6. Think of how many spouses are begging their spouse to take a long vacation. Think of how many children are doing the same thing.
    They bravely go into work. Those teary eyes will be with them though out the day.

  7. BHO is pleased that his divisive rule is working so well. His plan of destroying of America is going just fine.

    He can now play golf as all is well in his world.

  8. Just re-read his statement.
    “Tonight, I ask people to reject violence and words that harm, and turn to words that heal ”
    Where was he when his peeps were chanting ‘What do we want now? Dead cops”??? Why didn’t he address the country from his perch in the Oval Office and decry those incendiary words? Especially since his close advisor, Sharpton, was leading the protests.
    Not to mention his own words: Trayvon could be my son. And ‘stay the course’ in Ferguson. And the Cambridge cop acted stupidly.!

          1. Someone on Fox last night (former law enforcement, I believe) noted that De Blasio’s remarks were empty and canned…all he did was read off of a piece of paper. The guest noted that the mayor was far more animated (without reading anything) when he was standing beside Sharpton throwing the cops under the bus in the days preceding the murders.

          2. Yes, Mr. T, It was a former NYC police commissioner, can’t recall the name, talking with Judge Janine and making a very astute observation. I’d love to see the comparisons side by side in videos.

    1. Where was he when they were chanting those words “dead cops” He never said a word against that? Their chanting came true and Obama never said a word to stop that rhetoric. And now he’s talking big talk like he gives a crap? He only talking now because it affects him and then he goes back to his golf like a low I.Q. that he is.

    1. And he’ll get away with it too — Hawaii for a lengthy period of time. If anything falls — it will be on someone else’s head. As always.

  9. Just an afterthought. Last week both the wife and daughter of Mr. Garner(sp) went on national tv and stated emphatically that they did not believe their father/husband’s death was racially motivated. And yet DeB, Sharpton et al continued the unruly protests in NYC.

    IMO, this case was tragic. From the video of the take-down, it looked like excessive force to me…and a civil case was in order. This man was not a hardened criminal. There are hundreds of Mr. Garner’s in every metropolitan city eking out a living and committing petty crimes. Why waste the time and $$$ when we have bigger fish to fry? But that’s beside the point. The media, city officials, and mob protesters worked themselves into a frenzy waiting for an indictment. When it didn’t come, it was ‘…kill the cops’. That’s when Obama, DeB et al should have called a halt to the protests. The blame is squarely on their shoulders.

    **Just heard that another cop was killed in FLA. No details yet.

    1. I also believe that they should have left Garner alone. And the way all those cops took him down, a heavy man like that, that was very dumb and dangerous thing they did to him that resulted in his death? For what? But as far as the protests, its not the cops’ fault that the grand jury decided not to indight. They should have because the cops did kill Garner, choking him, etc. But these protests are loaded with low-class jerks that can’t take no for an answer, like Obama, Holder, Sharpton and the commie Mayor of New York.

  10. Does anybody in their right mind believe for an instant that Dictator Obama actually wrote this gibberish? No doubt Valerie Jarrett assigned one of the lower court lackeys accompanying Dear Leader and his husband beating wife on their well earned vacation. To those of you that do believe that Dictator Obama actually spent vacation time on this message I would like to sell you a bridge in Brooklyn. He could care less about these officers.

  11. Unconditionally condemn as opposed to conditionally condemn. What crap is that? He calls for patient calm here, but tells the Ferguson agitators to stay the course. He does not know his ass from his elbow.
