OBAMA MOVES UP MOMENT OF SILENCE AT PENTAGON ON 9-11, WHATS THE MATTER DID HE HAVE AN EARLY TEE TIME?
UNREAL, the moment of silence was originally slotted to take place at 9:37 AM, the time at which the Pentagon was attacked on September 11, 2001, but ended up taking place a few minutes early. The Daily Caller is reporting that this took place in order to accommodate a restless President Barack Obama. Are you kissing me? Obama, who has never been on time for any event, suddenly is impatient and moves up the moment of silence of a day meant to remember and honor the fallen on 9-11.This is just yet another example in a long line of them during Obama’s presidency where he thinks he is more entitled and important than “We the People.”
Because its all about him
A moment of silence remembering the September 11 victims at a Pentagon memorial service began early in order to accommodate a restless President Obama, a Department of Defense official told The Daily Caller.
A source close to the situation told TheDC that Obama arrived early to the memorial service — which took place at the Pentagon — and wanted to get things started early.
A Department of Defense official confirmed that the moment of silence was moved up a few minutes and that Obama was the one who made the decision, saying the president “moved early.”
Powerline opines and I could not agree more, In remarks delivered after the moment of silence was over, Obama stated:
The question before us, as always, is: How do we preserve the legacy of those we lost? How do we live up to their example? And how do we keep their spirit alive in our own hearts?
It seems like little to ask that a moment of silence scheduled for the time the Pentagon was hit be observed at that time. If there’s a compelling reason to move the observance up, so be it.
But if, as reported, Obama moved up the moment of silence because he was restless, I say he did not “live up to the example” of “those we lost.”
AMERICA, WAKE THE HELL UP TO WHAT HAS HAPPENED AROUND YOU FOR THE PAST 8 YEARS … OBAMACARE IS IMPLODING AND RATE FEES GOING UP BIG TIME … DO YOU WANT ANOTHER 4 YEARS OF THIS UNAFFORDABLE CRAP!!!
As reported at The Politico, Obamacare sticker shock hits key Senate races and could affect the outcome of many political races in the Senate and House. However, the dirty little secret is that massive Obamacare rate increases on insureds could also swing the presidential vote. Welcome to the reality of Obamacare and Barack Obama’s “UNAFFORDABLE” healthcare act that was one of the greatest frauds ever perpetrated on We the People. The rate increases are escalating out of control and insurance companies are leaving Obamacare as fast as they can.
As insurers push large premium increases for 2017 Obamacare plans, some of the steepest hikes have been requested by insurers in crucial swing states that could determine control of the Senate.
In nine of 11 states with competitive Senate races, at least one insurer seeks to hike rates for Obamacare customers by at least 30 percent next year:Highmark Blue Cross Blue Shield in Pennsylvania wants to jack up average premiums by more than 40 percent. In Wisconsin, three insurers have asked for rate hikes of more than 30 percent. In New Hampshire, two of the five carriers want to sell plans with rate increase above 30 percent.
The potential sticker shock — coupled with the likelihood many consumers will have fewer choices next year after major insurers scale back their exchange participation — creates a potential political opening for Republican candidates, especially since the next Obamacare enrollment season starts one week before Election Day.
“People who are feeling it in their pocketbooks are going to be very unhappy about [rate hikes],” said Brian Walsh, a former communications director for the National Republican Senatorial Committee. “You would expect to see this will be part of the campaign messaging for House and Senate Republicans. … If it hasn’t started, it will be coming.”
While Donald Trump often cites eye-popping rate hikes as proof the health care law is a “disaster,” rate hikes haven’t yet emerged as a major campaign issue in most Senate races — although several Republicans said they plan to spotlight the issue in the fall.
In Indiana, where Indianapolis-based Insurance giant Anthem wants to raise Obamacare premiums by as much as 36 percent, Rep. Todd Young, the Republican candidate for Indiana’s open seat, is already making the rate hikes an issue against former Sen. Evan Bayh his Democratic challenger. Bayh voted for Obamacare but didn’t run for reelection in 2010.
But it is not just battleground states, its all states that these ridiculous double digit insurance rate increases are coming with is the underlying dirty little secret of the 2016 elections. Americans awake to the real truth of Obamacare, its not affordable and not sustainable. Wow, who was saying that 7 years ago?
- Obamacare users in New York brace for double-digit 2017 premium hikes.
- California Obamacare rates to rise 13% in 2017, more than three times the increase of last two years.
- Get Ready for Huge Obamacare Premium Hikes in 2017.
- Illinois Obamacare rates could soar as state submits insurance premium increases to feds.
- Price increases for Obamacare depend on where you live, mostly up big.
In Vermont, the proposed 2017 premium increase for the average silver plan that covers a 50-year-old, nonsmoking male is a whopping 44 percent, going up to $685 per month, Avalere said.
The proposed price hike for a similar man and plan in Oregon, however, is 22 percent, up to $540 per month, Avalere said.
Other double-digit price hikes for that kind of plan are proposed in Virginia (19 percent), Maine (18 percent) and Maryland (18 percent).
Kirstie Alley Blasts Barack Obama for continued playing golf than dealing with Louisiana Floods … There is a reason why they calling him the Golfer in Chief.
Former Cheers actress Kirstie Alley blasted Barack Obama for his carefree attitude of playing golf on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods that resulted in 13 deaths and many more still missing. Alley took to Twitter to remind voters how Mr. Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina. It shameful, simply shameful that a president would be more consumed with his golf game than actually caring about the lives of American citizens. But of course that was difference for the MSM, Democrats and Obama because it was a Republican president. Just curious, where is “Black Lives Matter” as well? I guess we really know what matters with these folks after all.
Barack Obama’s decision to carry on with his holiday on Martha’s Vineyard during the Louisiana floods has come under fire from Kirstie Alley.
The actress best known for her appearance in the popular TV comedy Cheers has used Twitter to remind voters how Mr Obama criticized the then president, George Bush, over his response to Hurricane Katrina.
She ridiculed Mr Obama for playing golf while swathes of Louisiana were underwater, adding that she thought George Bush waited too long to visit New Orleans following Katrina.
Of course I would rather play golf than go to Louisiana
Mr Obama has said he will visit Louisiana within the next few days. Mr Trump and Mike Pence, his running mate, visited Louisiana last week and were photographed helping deliver aid packages.
Obama will get to Louisiana in his own sweet time after he has played 10 rounds of golf while on vacation and his 300th round of his presidency. So glad this president has a sense of priorities. Golf more important than the little people. The man simply does not care. We have seen what his real priorities are.
Obama White House Ignored Request To Illuminate The Residence Blue Following Dallas Police Shooting … White House Has No Plans To Go Blue
OF COURSE THE OBAMA ADMIN HAS NO PLANS TO HAVE THE WHITE HOUSE GO BLUE …
The Obama White House jumped at the opportunity to color the White House in rainbow colors following the SCOTUS decision of gay rights, but not so much following the Dallas massacre that left 5 police officers dead and 7 others injured. According to White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest, he said there are no plans of illuminating the residence blue in honor and support of the slain men in blue. Doesn’t that speak volumes. And we wonder why there is a war on the police? Obama can talk all he wants that he supports the police, but when push comes to shove to make a bold move for all to see, be shows his true colors.
God forbid the President of the United States show a visual support of the Men/Women in Blue that he claimed to have so much respect in the first part of his speech at the Dallas Memorial. In the end, Obama can’t upset the Black Lives Matter crowd. Its all about pandering for votes.
During today’s press briefing, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest said there are no plans of illuminating the residence blue in honor of the officers killed in Dallas.
The White House lowered the flags to half-staff in the wake of the horrific Dallas attack on July 7 that left five police officers dead. It’s one of the deadliest attacks on law enforcement in 100 years. During that night, Micah Xavier Johnson, angered by white people, and wanting to kill them, especially white police officers, opened fire at the conclusion of a peaceful Black Lives Matter protest. Nine other officers were also wounded in the attack. Yet, a request by the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association to cover the White House in blue lighting last Friday [July 8] was reportedly ignored by the Obama administration (via PoliceMag):
This is a slap in the face to police officers across the country. They need to know that the president and the country stands with them. They need to know that we fully reject the anti-cop rhetoric sweeping the nation.
Jon Adler, president of the Federal Law Enforcement Officers Association and the man who requested this simple gesture of respect, issued the following heart-breaking statement about what the White House’s refusal means to law enforcement:
Barack Obama Speaks at Memorial for the 5 Slain Police Officers in Dallas, Texas and Then Has to Bring Up Racism and Gun Control
DEFINE IRONY OR IN THIS CASE OBAMA’S SICK AND BIAS IDEOLOGY … SPEAKING AT A MEMORIAL FOR 5 SLAIN POLICE OFFICERS AT THE HANDS OF A BLACK RACIST WHO STATED HE WANTED TO KILL WHITE PEOPLE AND THEN BLAMING WHITE AMERICA FOR RACISM …
Yesterday, President Obama memorialize the five slain officers in Dallas, Texas and was joined by his wife, Michelle Obama, President George W. Bush and Mrs. Bush, and Vice-President Biden and Jill Biden. I will admit the beginning of the speech struck the correct tone, it was respectful and a very heart-felt and eloquent speech. It was what a President should have said at a Memorial for 5 brave police officers. Then came the BUT and Barack Hussein Obama just couldn’t not leave it there. The Ideologue in him just had to come out. As Patterico’s Pontifications opined, And then,
disappointingly expectedly, President Obama began to push his particular brand of politics and propaganda before the captive audience. Barack Obama hijacked the Memorial Service to lecture us all about racism. Isn’t that rich, five police officers (4 white and 1 Hispanic) killed at the hands of a black racist hell-bent on killing white people and especially white police officers and we get a lecture on the black plight and white racism. What else would we expect from the Divider in Chief and the most divisive, America-hating president this country has ever seen. Sad, truly sad.
This is 100% Who the Memorial Should Have been about
When anyone, no matter how good their intentions may be, paints all police as biased, or bigoted, we undermine those officers that we depend on for our safety. And as for those who use rhetoric suggesting harm to police, even if they don’t act on it themselves, well, they not only make the jobs of police officers even more dangerous, but they do a disservice to the very cause of justice that they claim to promote.
We also know that centuries of racial discrimination, of slavery, and subjugation, and Jim Crow; they didn’t simply vanish with the law against segregation. They didn’t necessarily stop when a Dr. King speech, or when the civil rights act or voting rights act were signed. Race relations have improved dramatically in my lifetime. Those who deny it are dishonoring the struggles that helped us achieve that progress. But we know…
But America, we know that bias remains. We know it, whether you are black, or white, or Hispanic, or Asian, or native American, or of Middle Eastern descent, we have all seen this bigotry in our own lives at some point. We’ve heard it at times in our own homes. If we’re honest, perhaps we’ve heard prejudice in our own heads and felt it in our own hearts. We know that. And while some suffer far more under racism’s burden, some feel to a far greater extent discrimination’s stain. Although most of us do our best to guard against it and teach our children better, none of us is entirely innocent. No institution is entirely immune, and that includes our police departments. We know this.
Check out the VIDEO below when the crowd was panned by the cameras during Obama’s lecture of the defense of “Black Lives Matter” and the numerous police officers who refused to clap.
1. Equating The Murders of The Dallas Police Officers With The Killings of Alton Sterling And Philando Castile. This is a trap into which the left has fallen consistently this week. It’s lazy thinking, and more importantly, it’s morally repugnant.
2. Suggesting That Today’s Police Departments Are Still Rife With The Legacies of Slavery And Jim Crow. The year is now 2016. Arrest statistics match up precisely with crime report statistics. There is no evidence of systemic discrimination against minorities.
3. Reeling Off Meaningless Statistics To Indict Police. Obama’s favorite game is to pretend that minorities are unfairly targeted by police, without citing higher rates of criminal activity among minorities.
4. Defending The Black Lives Matter Agenda. Dallas police officers were defending protesters – some of whom were mocking them – as a black anti-white racist shot at them. That didn’t stop Obama from backing the protesters’ agenda, without evidence.
5. Pushing Government Spending. Obama stumped for more government cash, of course – but not on cops.
6. Pushing Gun Control. Obama dropped this whopper: “We flood communities with so many guns that it is easier for a teenager to buy a Glock than get his hands on a computer or even a book.”
7. Ignoring Solutions. This was the key point: Obama thinks that solutions are secondary to talking about feelings. He believes he’s the national psychiatrist. “In the end, it’s not about finding policies that work. It’s about forging consensus and fighting cynicism and finding the will to make change.
