One has authorized killing Americans with drones and the other didn't

One has authorized killing Americans with drones and the other didn’t

He’s right. Cheney didn’t have a secret kill list and Cheney never authorized the killing of American citizens via drone. The Nobel Peace Prize-winning President did these things.

From Politico:

President Barack Obama’s defense to Democratic senators complaining about how little his administration has told Congress about the legal justifications for his drone policy: Dick Cheney was worse.

Cheney never ordered the targeted killings via drones of US citizens without due process. Obama did that!

That’s part of what two senators in the room recounted of Obama’s response when, near the outset of his closed-door session with the Senate Democratic conference on Tuesday, Sen. Jay Rockefeller (D-W.Va.) confronted the president over the administration’s refusal for two years to show congressional intelligence committees Justice Department Office of Legal Counsel memos justifying the use of lethal force against American terror suspects abroad.

That is what “transparency” is under the Obama regime.

Obama recently allowed members of those panels to see the memos, but only after senators in both parties threatened to hold up the confirmation of John Brennan as Central Intelligence Agency director. Brennan was confirmed last week, but lawmakers not on one of the intelligence panels are still being denied access to the memos and several are steamed over being frozen out.

In response to Rockefeller’s critique, Obama said he’s not involved in drafting such memos, the senators told POLITICO. He also tried to assure his former colleagues that his administration is more open to oversight than that of President George W. Bush, whom many Democratic senators attacked for secrecy and for expanding executive power in the national security realm.

How do you piss off a Democrat? Ask them a question about their constitutional knowledge or tell them the truth.

I love how Diane Feinstein, a career politician, claims she’s not a “6th grader” and then answers Sen. Cruz’s question with her list of career positions. Senate Democrats refused to answer the question and started fuming because they know the 2nd Amendment was put into place to stop the tyranny they want to accomplish.

Like our president, the lying hag then falsely claims that semi-automatic rifles (scary looking rifles that only shoot one bullet with each trigger squeeze) are used in the theater of war. The military does not use semi-automatic rifles in war. If they did they would lose every war. Automatic rifles with select-fire capabilities are used by our military personal. The only semi-automatic they carry is their sidearms, which is usually a handgun.

Democrats don’t know the US Constitution, weapons or anything about our military.

Democrats continue to prove their disdain for the 2nd Amendment and the US Constitution. Banning scary, military-looking weapons will not reduce the murder-rate in gun control crazy liberal cities like Chicago. A gun is a useless tool without an operator.

From WaPo:

The Senate Judiciary Committee approved a bill banning almost 160 specific military-style assault weapons Thursday after a heated exchange between senators about the scope of the Second Amendment.

The Democratic-controlled panel approved the bill on a party-line vote of 10 to eight — all Democrats voted yes, all Republicans voted no.

In the past week the committee has approved four Democratic-backed proposals to limit gun violence in America, all introduced in the wake of the mass shooting at the Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newtown, Conn. that left 20 elementary school children dead — and occurred three months ago Thursday.

Debate over gun control now shifts to the Senate, where the chamber’s divide between liberal, urban-state Democrats and Republicans and moderate Democrats weary of infringing on the rights of gun owners makes passage of the four proposals more difficult.

The 5th & 14th Amendments would disagree with this corrupt administration.

From The Hill:

The White House on Tuesday defended the guidelines for targeting Americans in drone strikes as “fully consistent” with the Constitution.

Speaking to reporters on Tuesday, White House spokesman Jay Carney said it is President Obama’s responsibility to protect U.S. citizens “first and foremost.”

But Carney said strikes against Americans overseas are sometimes “necessary to mitigate ongoing attacks.” The operations are “fully consistent with our Constitution,” he said.

“[The strikes] are legal, they are ethical and they are wise.”

Sent to me by a Canadian follower of my blog. Not sure who wrote this but it is sad that 53% can’t see the truth.

TOP-11 “ONLY IN AMERICA” OBSERVATIONS — BY A CANADIAN*

1) Only in America could the rich people – who pay 86% of all income taxes – be accused of not paying their “fair share” by people who don’t pay any income taxes at all.

2) Only in America could people claim that the government still discriminates against black Americans when they have a black President, a black Attorney General, and roughly 18% of the federal workforce is black while only 12% of the population is black

3) Only in America could they have had the two people most responsible for our tax code, Timothy Geithner, the head of the Treasury Department and Charles Rangel who once ran the Ways and Means Committee, BOTH turn out to be tax cheats who are in favor of higher taxes.

4) Only in America can they have terrorists kill people in the name of Allah and have the media primarily react by fretting that Muslims might be harmed by the backlash.

5) Only in America would they make people who want to legally become American citizens wait for years in their home countries and pay tens of thousands of dollars for the privilege while we discuss letting anyone who sneaks into the country illegally just ‘magically’ become American citizens.

6) Only in America could the people who believe in balancing the budget and sticking by the country’s Constitution be thought of as “extremists.”

7) Only in America could you need to present a driver’s license to cash a check or buy alcohol, but not to vote.

8) Only in America could people demand the government investigate whether oil companies are gouging the public because the price of gas went up when the return on equity invested in a major U.S. oil company (Marathon Oil) is less than half of a company making tennis shoes (Nike).

9) Only in America could the government collect more tax dollars from the people than any nation in recorded history, still spend a Trillion dollars more than it has per year – for total spending of $7-Million PER MINUTE, and complain that it doesn’t have nearly enough money.

10) Only in America could politicians talk about the greed of the rich at a $35,000.00 a plate campaign fund-raising event. 

11) Only in America can a man with no background, no qualifications and no experience … and a complete failure at his job … be reelected.

Who calls for I-M-P-E-A-C-H-M-E-N-T?

WASHINGTON (AP) — A federal appeals court has ruled that President Barack Obama violated the Constitution when he bypassed the Senate to fill vacancies on a labor relations panel.

The U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit says Obama did not have the power to make recess appointments earlier this year to the National Labor Relations Board.

Obama claims he acted properly because the Senate was away for the holidays. But the court says the Senate technically stayed in session when lawmakers gaveled in and out every few days for so-called “pro forma” sessions.
