Emails Indicate Obama Administration Suppressed British Freedom of the Press by jasonmick
Sources: AP [story], [emails]
quote: The president does not have the power to make/write law, that is congress and the senate, yet he has waived/suspended/ignored multiple parts of the ACA through use of his magical pen.
quote: He has ordered selective enforcement of US Laws relating to Illegals within our borders. In effect, he has removed the blindfold of Lady Justice and is selectively applying US Law on certain individuals and not on others. That is a biased/prejudiced application of US Law.
quote: Now I fully understand you will most likely choose to NOT recognize these facts, but I won't be surprised. The truth may not be pretty, but there is no denying the facts/statistics.
quote: My point is that replacing him wouldn't change anything
quote: Hell, we just went from the rightest right to the leftest left president and they are almost exactly the same. That should tell you something.
quote: Keep blaming and ignoring the real issues.
quote: I said replacing him makes no difference.
quote: How in the hell can we ever change anything if we don't hold leaders accountable when they break laws, their oath, or the Constitution?
quote: How in the hell can we ever change anything if we don't hold democrats accountable when they break laws, their oath, or the Constitution?
quote: My point is that replacing him wouldn't change anything. We had the chance to put someone else in 2 years ago and we didn't change anything. Our entire political system is out of whack. if we Impeach Obama we just get Biden. Is that any better? Electing another Jackass isn't going to change a damn thing either. D's and R's blaming each other, lobbing grenades over the fence isnt change, its par. They are all in it together, giving you the impression you had a choice when you don't.
quote: Do we really have to go through another 2+ years of this tin pot dictator and his totalitarian "administration"? Just impeach this guy now.
quote: the principles we were founded on, and this President erroneously swore on
quote: You think the IMC are huge backers of this clown??
quote: Problem with talking to a conspiracy junkie is that you can never convince them otherwise. They just broaden their conspiracy to account for the new facts.
quote: Its a wonder what the real motive behind an article such as this really is.
quote: He was correct to release the info on the spying. All the other info he released was wrong and only helped our enemies.
quote: They are the lunatic fringe.
quote: I call it a systematic fleecing of our country, done on purpose by both sides, but in the end it's the same damn thing. - We are being robbed blind and our constitution is being crapped on by our govt. Rather than seeing that, you just get pissed.
quote: I said nothing here about 'us vs them'.
quote: Can you guess which religious group gave Obama his highest approval rating by far out of all polled?Muslims. Yeah, I'm sorry, but when out of every religious group polled in America, an American President rates highest with them? Something is extremely wrong with that.But it makes perfect sense. Obama clearly has no love for Israel OR America.
quote: I simply said Obama is guilty of impeachable crimes, and I believe he SHOULD be.
quote: And you are being extremely insulting here. You're condescending me and talking down to me, when I don't believe you even have a leg to stand on.
quote: I say that EVERY DAY here. Hell I've been called a radical anti-Government wacko. I've called for civil war. I've even went as far as to say there can be NO moral justification for a Government.
quote: But what in the hell does any of this have to do with your extreme knee-jerk whinefest when I suggested we should impeach Obama? Seems like a huge deflection.
quote: Your basic average Muslim is just like anyone anywhere else.
quote: and really don't spend much time at all thinking about "the infidels".
quote: Have you read the old testament? It's equally brutal.
quote: How many muslims do you even know?
quote: Also, "1 billion". :P
quote: I just think you have an issue identifying who the real enemy is here.
quote: My point is the #'s aren't enough to form an army.
quote: I'm at lost why the leaders of the Muslim community cannot do more to bring about peace in the world.
quote: The Muslim religion has NEVER been a religion of peace. If you read the Qaran, which I've done fair bit of, you'll notice one consistent theme.Peace is only mentioned under the context of EVERYONE becoming a Muslim. Peace is never offered to the Jews, Christians, or any other faith or walk of life.And while most religions threaten the "nonbeliever" with some form of punishment, it's usually reserved for the afterlife. Islam is the only religion that has a 'holy book' that so often and consistently dictates to it's followers that violence, torture, and murder be done to others on gods behalf in THIS life.Which is why we have the mess we have today. Live and let live in peace? No. Islam is literally all about join or die.
quote: Funny, because the Bible does, word for word, the exact same thing as the Qu'ran. There can only be one "god", every other so-called "god" is a heretic, and their followers shall be punished - with death, not persuasion, mind you.
quote: My sister, who does follow the Bible's teachings to the letter, regularly breaks at least half of the Ten Commandments daily .
quote: The folks in power are also those that interpret parts of the Qu'ran too literally
quote: The difference is the Christian god
quote: will punish you after you die
quote: The Qu'ran tells it's followers to BE the punisher. Beyond that, you'll actually be REWARDED for doing it.
quote: Again, I'm an atheist
quote: so don't act like I'm putting one religion over the other
quote: However it's simply factually wrong to claim the "Bible" has the same moral code as the Qaran.
quote: People don't take power, they are GIVEN it. Ask yourself why these people are in power. How did it happen?
quote: You and retro keep reminding us over 1 billion people are Muslim. And yet look at who they choose to speak on their behalf...
quote: Really I wasn't aware we were at war with the Muslim faith.
quote: Come on put that analytical hat back on. The people we are at war with are to the Muslim faith the same way that the KKK and the Nazis are to the Christian faith. They are extremists, they are psychos, they are murderers. They are not the 1 billion Muslims that make up the Muslim faith. They are the lunatic fringe.
quote: Anyhow Obama has been horrible. There are so many things, valid real things to attack him on. Calling him a Muslim or sympathetic to Muslim causes just changes the conversation from real issues to ignorance.
quote: When was the last time one group systematically tried to wipe a whole group of people from the planet? I am not saying that what the NAzi's did was a Christian belief at all, but you get my point. You cant take the horrible acts of one group and apply it to all.
quote: I am not going to disagree that they are backwards. To me the whole judeo-christian-muslim religious branch is backwards. Of the 3, clearly Islam is the farthest backwards by a longshot. But the people committing acts of terror are the minority. They are extremists and not the norm. And I disagree that they are involved. Putting these acts of terror on the rest of them is exactly like putting the KKK, Nazis or McVeigh or such on Christianity. It's just not right, but whatever.
quote: I agree. Lets even just look at Iraq. Old Babylon is not 100 miles from present day Baghdad. That area has been at war basically since history began. It has been forcibly taken over by various armies 100's and 100's of times, literally since history began. And now today it's under threat of it again. That is going to happen no matter what. If we got out 2 years ago, next year, 10 years from now or 100 years from now, no matter what it will happen, and happen again after that, and again, as it always has. We need to be the hell out of there. Let them kill each other. There is nothing we can do to stop it. It's a sad state of affairs, but it is not our business, and not our fault. Us being there just creates targets out of us.
quote: Can you guess which religious group gave Obama his highest approval rating by far out of all polled?Muslims. Yeah, I'm sorry, but when out of every religious group polled in America, an American President rates highest with them? Something is extremely wrong with that.
quote: Bullcrap. If one of our citizens wants to hide in the mountains plotting against America then I have no problem sending them a drone as a gift.
quote: I'm not saying that in simplistic terms I support the governments ability to kill a citizen without due process per se (I'm also not against it in the EXACT RIGHT circumstance).
quote: For example, a kid puts together a hit list. That is a crime.
quote: However, someone who has that status, but goes overseas to plot on and instruct others to kill Americans and happens to be killed in pursuit.. With undeniable proof of such things...
quote: I don't lose any sleep over that guys due process what-so-ever.
quote: Anyone can be falsely accused of a crime. Everyone accused of a crime deserves a fair trial.
quote: Okay, but it's one or the other, right? You either hand the government ambiguous power to decide when to kill people without trial or you don't.
quote: Wait are you suggesting that a student who generates a "hit list" perhaps just as a fantasy or cry for help is a potential case where they should be "taken out" preemptively?
quote: Umm how can you have "undeniable" proof without a trial. That's the whole point of a capital punishment trial -- to determine if the proof is overwhelming enough to warrant the death penalty.
quote: Well that makes you antithetical to the principles this nation was founded on.
quote: Our job, however, is to LOUDLY but CIVILY express that when it comes to our liberty and freedom, we covet those above security, within reason. It is not within reason to sacrifice that which our country is proudly founded on to prevent something that maybe might have happened if we hadn't.
