Barack Obama, our next President

That IS good news. Because all the new regulations associated with Obamacare are going to need plenty of room.

MAn of peace please read thats why you got the prize Under international law, including Article 51 of the United Nations Charter and the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court, there are but three justifications for war: self-defense, defense of an ally required by treaty, or authorization given by a UN Security Council resolution. The use of military force for any other reason constitutes a crime of aggression.

Spearheaded by the U.S., the post-World War II Nuremberg trials prosecuted former Nazi leaders for crimes against peace — that is, waging a war of aggression or a war in violation of international treaties. Chief Prosecutor and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Robert Jackson elaborated: "To initiate a war of aggression … is not only an international crime. It is the supreme international crime differing only from other war crimes in that it contains within itself the accumulated evil of the whole."

If Iran acquired a nuclear capability or arsenal, the UN Security Council would not authorize an attack. Either Russia or China would exercise their respective unilateral veto power as permanent Security Council members. Further, Iran's simple possession of a nuclear arsenal without threatening an imminent attack on the U.S. or a U.S. ally protected by treaty would not under prevailing international law justify war against Iran by the U.S.

International law, however, is not a petrified forest. It changes over time according to the customs, practices, treaties and opinions of civilized nations. Suppose that the U.S. decreed that it was endowed by its Creator with angelic DNA that immunized it from all the vices and sinister motives that afflict other nations and that the U.S. is uniquely crowned under international law with the authority to initiate war against any alleged enemy to accomplish professedly benevolent objectives. In other words, Americans are a master race with discretionary power to exercise dominion over the entire planet.

Under the master-race theory of international law, suppose that the U.S. preemptively attacked Iran to prevent its acquisition of a nuclear capability. What then?

In the short run, the superpower status of the U.S. would deter attacks and frustrate retaliation by other nations unwilling to accept vassalage or serfdom. Among other things, the U.S. could easily survive a curtailment of oil exports from the Persian Gulf. But in the long run, the U.S. would do well to remember, as World War II confirmed, that graveyards are filled with master races.

El Paso County(CO) Sheriff Terry Maketa Rips Liar Obama: Your Puppets
Will Be Removed From Office; Your Legacy Will Be Remembered
In History As The Ultimate Failure Based On Lie After Lie

I am truly appalled at the president's claim that 90% of Americans support the proposed gun control laws. His speech writer should be fired. He claims these bills would have prevented another Sandy Hook or Aurora shooting, yet he has no evidence to support that claim. Factually speaking, the proposed laws in Colorado would not have prevented one incident, nor would the Federal proposed bills. Don't forget one of the sponsors, Congresswoman DeGette, actually thought magazines were the same as bullets. That's the kind of familiarity those who sponsor these bills have with the subject.

Mr. President, just because the polls tell you what buzz phrases to use to seek your agenda, it does not mean the American people are so naive to follow your continuous record of lies. Remember there are many of us that remember the day you promised to reduce the National deficit by 50%, and you did far more damage and tripled it with nothing to show but more people reliant on your handouts. The people are onto you and we will remember this at election time as you asked in your latest hollywood type speech. Here in Colorado, and at the federal level, your puppets will be removed from office and your legacy will be remembered in history as the ultimate failure based on lie after lie. Yes, your so-called promise of change is more lies, debt, and higher taxes on the middle class to pay for your failed promises. Please tout more successes of Chicago, such as their tax rates, the upside down pension fund, number of homicides, clearance rates or lack of clearances.

Our president even claimed Chicago as justification, for these gun control measures knowing full well that Chicago is the poster child of failure from gun control laws. Violence has increased since Chicago's gun control measures have been in place and they are more restrictive than any other city in this country. In simple terms, it got worse and his creation of so-called "sheep" to fend off the "wolf" have failed. The American people are not the sheep he wants to create. We will be heard and we will not follow his lies that lack scientific validation and truth. My heart goes out to all victims of any violence. Statistically speaking, more people are killed by items other than guns far more often, but our president doesn't want you to know that. Check the Bureau of Justice Statistics for yourself and do it before his administration manipulates them.

The president claims to be speaking for the victims, yet he chooses which victims, because I, as many of you, have witnessed victims from Aurora, Sandy Hook, and even Columbine plea with law makers to not pass measures that criminalize and punish the law abiding citizens for the acts of killers. They demonstrated common sense and showed true courage to stand against the lies and denounce the measures as ineffective. The promises of preventing these horrific acts in the future are misleading and even our own governor has admitted, here in Colorado, the similar guns bills would not have prevented tragedies such as Aurora and Sandy Hook. Our president is an embarrassment to our free society and so are his puppets. The next election will show just that. The president's posturing and agenda were truly seen for what they are, more lies and false promises, most importantly an agenda based on undeliverable promises.

How embarrassing he uses the greatest failure in our nations' history for more gun control and people control- that failure being the murder capital of the United States, Chicago. Watch his statement on CNN and ask yourself how he can mention his home town as an example of justification. This is the city that arrested a 56 year old female researcher at the University of Illinois, Chicago, during the week of February 15th for bringing an unloaded weapon to work, in a secured box, to prevent it from being stolen by contractors working on her home. She was trying to prevent a crime and not be a victim. She was arrested and had to post a $25,000.00 bond to get out of jail and is now on suspension from work, pending criminal charges and awaiting trial.

This is what happens when emotionally charged laws are recklessly passed. Law abiding citizens are criminalized. Thankfully a majority of US Congress saw through these proposed lies and did what's right. Now we, the people of Colorado, need to send a message to the governor and the Capitol that we will not be criminalized, nor will we stand by and allow our rights to be infringed and stripped based on lies and unenforceable, agenda driven bad laws. That is why I will not back off this issue and will proudly support my rights, to access to courts, with 37 other sheriffs in a legal action against these ridiculous, unconstitutional laws.

I have been asked by many, what can I do to help? I will ask that you do not lay down, do not go silent; that is what they hope for and expect. Do not let them convert you to sheep. Evil prospers when good people do nothing. Do not let evil prosper. I will not quit and please don't you give up and quit.- Sheriff Terry Maketa @ Facebook. Hat tip Free Republic.

The Republicans are sending funding bills to the Senate. Harry Reid won't let those bills be voted on so the government can resume operations.
The Democrats are holding the government hostage demanding a ransom be paid to their Marxist welfare program.

Shutdown’: China’s Xi upstages Obama’s Asia pivot
When the clock struck midnight on October 1st, there was plenty more optimism in Beijing than in Washington. In China, people gathered in Tiananmen Square to celebrate the anniversary of the country’s founding. In the US, the situation was much grimmer.

A kabuki theatre of incompetence that brought about a federal government shutdown, has failed hundreds of thousands of government employees while cutting billions on social programs spending. Now Washington faces the very real scenario of a default. The problems posed by the US domestic situation are so dire that Obama was forced to cancel high-profile trips to Asia-Pacific countries, in fear of the debt ceiling crashing down on his presidency. Obama was supposed to visit the APEC Summit in Bali, the ASEAN meeting in Brunei, as well as pay visits to Malaysia and the Philippines – two countries that feature prominently in the “Pivot to Asia” policy unveiled in 2011. Instead, he sent the court jester, John Kerry, in his place.

With Obama’s wings clipped and Air Force One grounded, China’s President Xi Jinping swooped in and stole the show, cutting billion-dollar deals on landmark visits to Indonesia and Malaysia, and securing the spotlight for the APEC and ASEAN conferences. While Xi came arm-in-arm with his classy wife for a massive charm offensive that topped headlines in Jakarta and Kuala Lumpur, Obama twiddled his thumbs in the Oval Office and played the blame game with Republicans, like truculent teenagers. Given the extreme value placed on the concept of saving or losing face in Chinese culture, this can only be a “paper tiger” moment for Obama when viewed through the lens of Beijing. Obama’s no-show is yet another symbolic indication of the winds of global power blowing eastward, as the two largest economies vie for influence in military affairs and markets throughout the Asia-Pacific region: this century’s global locomotive for economic development.

Sorry, we’re closed
Obama’s foreign policy has been one ‘epic fail’ after the next, and the shutdown debt-drama unfolding in Washington doesn’t exactly reflect the self-professed ‘exceptionalism’ of a power trying to pass itself off as a model for leadership in the Asia-Pacific region. The structure of the much-lauded Asia pivot rests on a dual-pronged approach: the muscle angle calls for increasing rotational US military presence in the region; the market angle calls for roping emerging Southeast Asian economies into Washington’s sphere through the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), a secretive free trade agreement written to give US multinationals a major leg up. How can “America’s Pacific Century” be taken seriously when the commander-in-chief himself is too occupied with preventing his ceiling from collapsing to even visit the region for a few days? To use the Chinese proverb, Obama’s predicament is a case of "lifting a rock only to drop it on one's own feet."

Here's another propaganda lie intended to mislead the people:
Headline
"Should Congress Raise the Debt Ceiling or Allow the United States to Default?"
The United States has revenue.
The 14th Amendment states that all debt will be paid.
What this means is, the government must pay the debt before it writes a welfare check, for instance.
If the government decides to not pay the debt from the revenue it is collecting, that is solely on Obama.
There is no need to raise the debt ceiling to pay the debt. There is sufficient revenue to pay the debt.
Now, is Obama threatening to make the government default if his Marxist welfare programs don't get money?
Is this the real situation?
I'd say it's time to impeach him, and let him spend the rest of his term defending himself in the Senate. There is a plethora of constitutional violations to try him on, one after another.
what idiotic low information people and believers of the O'bama fail to realize is the United States always has enough money on hand to pay the bills. Actually they can pay the bills and fund 70% of the rest. The only that would happen is O'bama and the democrats would be forced to get defund some of their pet projects or their pets in the projects.
