If the Bush-Cheney gang were still in the White House, the assurances of NSA generals and DEA cops, along with purported inquiries into the legality of these practices by a Department of Justice which recently pronouced that being profiled at a White House “Terror Tuesday” meetings was all the “due process” required before summary execution by drone – these assurances would be met with a relentless storm of disbelief and ridicule.

But in the upside down universe of liberals in this, the age of Obama, violations of due process, mass incarceration, vacuum cleaner surveillance of the digital lives and correspondence of all Americans, and passing the results of this unconstitutional surveillance on to local police are beneath the notice of black and white Democrats, and unworthy of comment, even by black leaders who claim to oppose mass incarceration.

It may have taken the Bush-Cheney gang to initiate the so-called War on Terror. But only Barack Obama., only a black Democrat in the White House could make it OK in the eyes of black and white liberals to bring that war home in the forms of border walls, universal surveillance, and the sharing of that surveillance data with local cops who conceal its origin at the same time they claim that everything they do is legal. And nobody even laughs.

The GOP’s fundamental miscalculation on Obamacare

What if Republicans — in their drive to repeal and even defund Obamacare — are making the same mistake they made in 2012 about the economy?

Last year, Republicans gambled that high public dissatisfaction with Obama’s economic performance meant majorities had concluded that the President had been an abject failure, meaning there was simply no chance he’d be reelected. Instead, exit polls suggested voters didn’t hold Obama to blame for the economy in high enough numbers to ensure his defeat. One possible explanation — advanced by Ron Brownstein, yours truly and others — is that despite their disappointment, they found the sluggishness of the recovery understandable, given the circumstances, and saw the election as a nuanced choice between sticking with a disappointing status quo and a worse alternative. Republicans appeared caught off guard by this.

A similar miscalculation may be guiding the current GOP drive to repeal Obamacare — and the conservative drive to shut down the government to force its defunding.

For a long time now, the polling on Obamacare has shown a pattern. Disapproval of the law runs high, and polls that offer respondents a straight choice between repeal and keeping the law as is find high support for repeal. But polls that offer a more nuanced range of options — such as changing the law or repealing parts of it — find only minority support for the GOP position of full repeal. This pattern has been clear for years now. Meanwhile, polls that ask directly whether Republicans should keep blocking the law find majority opposition to that.

It seems reasonable to surmise that dissatisfaction with the law may not necessarily translate into broad support for getting rid of it entirely (let alone replacing it with nothing). As in 2012, voters may be taking a longer, more nuanced view than Republicans think.

The largest closure of US embassies that I'm aware of indicates they're taking this very seriously.
IMO its a phony scare to rationalize domestic spying and draw attention away from the NSA leaks.
Well, you know, desperate times call for desperate actions.

The IRS/Benghazi/DOJ scandals are starting to close in on the WH.
Gotta do some something desperate to place attention elsewhere.

Clinton bombed an aspirin factory. Obama shut down embassies all over the world. The enemy must be shaking in their boots.

WDW is hiring hundreds of Portuguese speaking super greeters to greet and guide Brazilian tourists through the parks to overcome the language barrier and make their stay more pleasant. Brazilians spend, on average,$700 more per Central Florida visit than other foreign tourists as they shop for clothing, electronics etc. to take home.

Hah, when I first came to Central Florida WDW was hiring Spanish speaking greeters. Time flies.

Under Obama, Tyranny is the New Transparency
President Obama has instituted a kind of “equal opportunity retaliation” regime against whistleblowers.“All that was required of Manning and Snowden to harvest the bounties of white privilege was that they look the other way when faced with war crimes and sweeping invasions of privacy domestically and worldwide.” These days, anybody can be “taken out” without benefit of due process.

News analysis finds $246.5M in taxes went unpaid last year--guess those losers in Detroit think they are paying their fair share now.
From The Detroit News:
Those in Detroit's Bloomfield Hills who make on average median income of $900,000 won't be laughing for long when their neighborhoods face the same fate as the Detroit inner city core. All their electronic security systems, watch dogs, private security SWAT teams, and barbed wire topped walls won't save them .
