Barack Obama, our next President

"The road ahead will be long. Our climb will be steep," Obama cautioned. Young and charismatic but with little experience on the national level, Obama smashed through racial barriers and easily defeated ... Full Story

Service members committed suicide during 2012 at a record pace: more than 349 took their own lives across the four branches, or one every 25 hours, a Department of Defense spokesperson confirmed Monday.

The figures are preliminary suicide statistics and do not include 110 “pending” reported suicides among active-duty troop in 2012 that are still under investigation by medical examiners.

http://usnews.nbcnews.com/_news/2013/01/14/16...

Army suicides have increased by at least 54 percent since 2007 when there were 115 — a number the Washington Post then called "an all-time record."

Obama has drawn criticism during his first four years in office for taking an above-the-fray approach that has baffled even some members of his own Democratic Party and given him a reputation for aloofness.

If his second term is to be a success, Obama may well need to break down some partisan barriers as he seeks to prevent a fresh debt crisis and gain congressional approval of legislation overhauling gun laws and immigration policies.

But so far he has signaled a more confrontational approach, insisting he has made plenty of concessions toward Republicans already and that since he was re-elected in November, he should get his way.

He should get his way?

Press conference transcript:

Major Garrett: What Chuck [Chuck Todd from NBC] and I and, I think, many people are curious about is this new adamant desire on your part not to negotiate when that seems to conflict with the entire history of the modern era of American presidents in the debt ceiling and your own history in the debt ceiling. And doesn’t that suggest that we are going to go until a default situation? Because no one is talking to each other about how to resolve this.

Press conference transcript:

Julianna Goldman - Thank you, Mr. President. I want to come back to the debt ceiling, because in the summer of 2011, you said that you wouldn’t negotiate on the debt ceiling, and you did. Last year you said that you wouldn’t extend any of the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy, and you did. So as you say now that you’re not going to negotiate on the debt ceiling this year, why should House Republicans take that seriously and think that if we get to the one-minute-to-midnight scenario that you’re not going to back down?

http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/14/us/politics...

House Republicans should not take anything this president does or says seriously.

Even if it means shutting down the whole dang thing to prove it's not all about Obama getting his way.

Obama's Achilles heel is finally exposed.

His arrogance and aloofness has caught up with him.

I don't think we're going to see another press conference in a good long while.

People are beginning to see a naked emperor.

Thank goodness for that. But it might not be as well for some as for others.

Matthew 24:12
And because lawlessness will abound, the love of many will grow cold.

Lawlessness - obvious sins such as blasphemy, deceit, theft, violence, rape, sodomy, adultery, murder, etc., and not so obvious sins or socially acceptable sins such as covetousness, ingratitude, envy and pride.

Romans 8:7
Because the carnal mind is enmity against God: for it is not subject to the law of God, neither indeed can be.

What You DON'T Say Might be Held Against You

It's hard to believe, but yet another entrenched Constitutional Right is up for debate to be trampled upon: the right to remain silent. This right, in fact, even goes beyond the U.S. Constitution and has become a chestnut of virtue for all: silence is golden. Well, apparently not anymore if the Supreme Court sides for the police in the case of Salinas vs. Texas...

http://www.activistpost.com/2013/01/what-you-...

It must first be admitted that the U.S. Constitution never gave to the U.S. Supreme Court the power to substitute their will for the intentions of the Founders of the Constitution. This is easy to prove. Alexander Hamilton admits this in Federalist Paper 78.

Let me state this clearly: the U.S. Constitution does not grant to the US S CT the power to interpret the Constitution in contradiction to the terms of the Constitution, and it does not strip the powers of the States to actively arrest and resist tyrannical federal actions. The US S CT can no more legally violate the Constitution than the Legislative and Executive branches can. What sense does it make that the US S CT is bound by Oath to support and defend Our Constitution and then has the power to interpret it however the heck they want to? Do you think Our Founders were so near-sighted and unlearned that they would have given to the US S CT this unchecked and unlimited power in the very document that states its purpose is "to secure the blessings of liberty"?

I posted my sources to back up all my posts today including MSNBC, NBC, CNN and the New York Times.

Which one of them lied? Because, frankly, I would be shocked.

Seriously. What lies?

Well the movie of the moment is Lincoln which by all accounts should be in the Republicans hall of fame but unfortunately these days he would be so far left of center for you lot he would end up another "commie plot".

If only the Republicans represented today what he stood for then!

Colin Powell says he's still a Republican but says "There's also a dark vein of intolerance in some part of the party" explaining they "still sort of look down on minorities."

Powell knows Republicans did more for his career than any Democrat.

Now he's falling for the liberal propaganda.

It's not that anyone "looks down" on minorities. Republicans want to give them as many opportunities as possible to lift themselves up.

Unlike democrats who rob them of their dignity, make them victims and support their dependency.

That's what republicans "look down" on.

Colin Powell needs to "look down" on this administration who has put even more people in poverty - and do some serious soul searching.

Anyone still here? Did I miss something earlier that caused everyone to run off?
Yeah

Clearly, your position is one of politics regardless of what you claim you would do!
