Barack Obama To Unveil U.S. Supreme Court Selection Today … Either Federal Appeals Court Judges, Sri Srinivasan or Merrick Garland
BARACK OBAMA TO HAVE ROSE GARDEN PRESSER TO ANNOUNCE TO SCOTUS NOMINEE …
Today, Barack Obama is going to announce his US Supreme Court nominee in the Rose Garden to replace the deceased Justice Antonin Scalia. It is reported that his choices will be one of the following two federal appeal court judges Sri Srinivasan or Merrick Garland. I guess neither of these two have any actual aspirations of being SCOTUS justices as the GOP has vowed not to even consider any choices until after the 2016 presidential election.
President Barack Obama was poised to announce his nominee for the U.S. Supreme Court on Wednesday at the White House, setting the stage for a potentially ferocious political showdown with Senate Republicans who have pledged to bar anyone Obama selects.
Obama said in a statement released by the White House that he will unveil his nominee at 11 a.m. EDT (1500 GMT) in the White House Rose Garden. He is likely to announce one of two federal appeals court judges, Sri Srinivasan or Merrick Garland, as his choice, a source familiar with the selection process told Reuters.
The Indian-born Srinivasan, 49, would be the first Asian-American and first Hindu Supreme Court justice. Garland, 63, is a long-time appellate judge and former prosecutor who Obama also considered when he filled two previous Supreme Court vacancies.
It appears that Barack Obama has made his decision for SCOTUS nominee.
What a joke, after 7 years Obama decides to do his Constitutional duty. I thought he had forgot what the US Constitution was.
Today, I will announce the person whom I believe is eminently qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.
As President, it is both my constitutional duty to nominate a Justice and one of the most important decisions that I — or any president — will make.
I’ve devoted a considerable amount of time and deliberation to this decision. I’ve consulted with legal experts and people across the political spectrum, both inside and outside government. And we’ve reached out to every member of the Senate, who each have a responsibility to do their job and take this nomination just as seriously.
Justice Dept. AG Lynch Testifies Has ‘Discussed’ Civil Legal Action Against Climate Change Deniers … But AG Lynch Indicates DOJ Not Required to Charge Hillary Clinton
IMAGINE THAT … OBAMA’S AG LOOKING TO TAKE LEGAL ACTION AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE DENIERS BUT MUMS THE WORD ON HILLARY CLINTON.
See what happens when you on Obama’s enemies list and when you are not.
The Blaze reports that Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.
During a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI) said that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies and climate change deniers. Really, is this how ignorant the debate has become with the climate change charletons that they are comparing tobacco dangers to fossil fuels and climate change? Are you kidding? Wait a minute, which one is the scheme? Sorry, it is far from settled science that climate change is man made and anything could be done to change climate change. Note to climate change wackos, its the sun stupid. The climate has been changing since the birth of the planet, with or without man. Imagine that?
Attorney General Loretta Lynch testified Wednesday that the Justice Department has “discussed” taking civil legal action against the fossil fuel industry for “denying” the “threat of carbon emissions” when it comes to climate change.
During Lynch’s testimony at a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) said that he believes there are similarities between the tobacco industry denying scientific studies showing the dangers of using tobacco and companies within the fossil fuel industry denying studies allegedly showing the threat of carbon emissions.
Contract that tough talk with AG Lynch’s position as to the possibility of indicting Hillary Clinton for her private server/email crimes and risking US national security. If you are a Democrat criminal and the FBI recommends charges against you, then AG Lynch says that the DOJ is not required to prosecute you. Attorney General Lynch indicates DOJ not required to charge Hillary Clinton if the FBI recommends charges. Imagine that.
The Department of Justice would not be required to have to prosecute Hillary Clinton even if the FBI were to recommend charges be filed against her for the use of a private email server when she was secretary of state, Attorney General Loretta Lynch has indicated.
The Washington Examiner reports that the nation’s top law enforcer — answering a question from Sen. John Cornyn, a Texas Republican, as to whether her agency would be “required” to pursue criminal charges against Clinton — responded:
“It would not be an operation of law, it would be an operation of procedures,” Lynch said.
As well, according to Lynch, a decision to pursue a criminal case would be “done in conjunction with the agents” involved in the probe, and would “not something that we would want to cut them out of the process.”
The Comedian in Chief strikes again … WHAT A SICK, SICK, SOB.
What a small, small man you are. So Barack Hussein Obama can’t seem to find the time or the class to attend the late Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral, but he can find the time to joke about the justice’s untimely death. Obama did so on February 22, 2016, as he delivered remarks to the National Governors Association at the White House. What’s worse, not only did this poor excuse for a president and human make the sick and pathetic joke, there were those in the room that laughed. REALLY? So this is what is funny to Obama. What a sick individual this man truly is. Never have we had such a divisive president hold the office. You will be judged one day Mr. President, and you will have a lot of explaining.
Is it any wonder why this country is as divided as it is with a president who would make such a joke? And you wonder Barack why you will never nominate a justice SCOTUS.
Just curious, what do you think the reaction would be if a Democrat president passed away in office whose name sounds like Barry Soetoro and a Republican leader made a joke about the succession of power? Yeah, that’s what I thought it would be.
The most classless president ever to hold the Office … Thanks America!
OK GOP, IF THERE WAS EVER A REASON TO NOW BLACK ANY OBAMA SCOTUS NOMINEE … YOU WERE JUST PROVIDED THE REASON.
Barack Obama, what a small, little man … The White House has announced that Barack Obama will not attend the funeral of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia. Weasel Zippers could not have stated it any better. REALLY? what kind of a skeevy and divisive SOB must you be to be a president of the United States and not attend a SCOTUS’ funeral, especially when you plan on putting forth a judicial nominee to replaced the deceased Scalia? There is a reason why Obama is considered the most decisive president ever. He has more than earned the title. I guess Jon Lovitz was correct.
President Barack Obama is preparing for a fierce battle with the Senate over the Supreme Court vacancy, but he’s not planning to attend Justice Antonin Scalia’s funeral — a decision that puzzled even some of his allies and incensed conservative media.
“If we want to reduce partisanship, we can start by honoring great public servants who we disagree with,” Obama’s former “car czar” Steven Rattner tweeted with a link to a headline about Obama skipping the funeral.
Fox News host Sean Hannity blasted out his own site’s article that dismissed the decision as disappointingly expected: “Obama To SKIP Scalia Funeral, Here’s A List Of OTHER Funerals He Was Too Busy To Attend.”
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest revealed the president’s plans during the daily briefing, saying Obama and first lady Michelle Obama will go to the Supreme Court on Friday “to pay their respects to Justice Scalia” while the justice lies in repose in the Great Hall. Vice President Joe Biden and his wife Jill Biden, who share Scalia’s Catholic faith, will be at the services instead.
What a sick little man who would let his political ideology get in the way of showing the respect that he should in one’s death. Is it any wonder why so many do not consider this man their president. Classless, simply classless.
BIG BLOW TO BARACK OBAMA’S CLIMATE CHANGE INITIATIVE …
In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations that is part of his global warming climate change initiative. 27 states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab” and that the regulations would greatly increase energy costs and put some of their industries out of business. Appellate arguments are set to begin June 2, 2016. Thankfully, the SCOTUS put a hold on anything going forward as Powerline opines, “Obama’s EPA was betting that the slow legal process would mean that they’d have a lot of things in place, and many utilities would have complied with the EPA’s dictates, before the law was settled at the Supreme Court.”
A divided Supreme Court on Tuesday abruptly halted President Obama’s controversial new power plant regulations, dealing a blow to the administration’s sweeping plan to address global warming.
In a 5-4 decision, the court halted enforcement of the plan until after legal challenges are resolved.
The surprising move is a victory for the coalition of 27 mostly Republican-led states and industry opponents that call the regulations “an unprecedented power grab.”
By temporarily freezing the rule the high court’s order signals that opponents have made a strong argument against the plan. A federal appeals court last month refused to put it on hold.
The court’s four liberal justices said they would have denied the request.
The plan aims to stave off the worst predicted impacts of climate change by reducing carbon dioxide emissions at existing power plants by about one-third by 2030.
“We disagree with the Supreme Court’s decision to stay the Clean Power Plan while litigation proceeds,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest said in a statement.Earnest said the administration’s plan is based on a strong legal and technical foundation, and gives the states time to develop cost-effective plans to reduce emissions. He also said the administration will continue to “take aggressive steps to make forward progress to reduce carbon emissions.”
WHAT WOULD YOU EXPECT FROM A COMMUNITY AGITATOR?
The New York Post is reporting that newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign. Well doesn’t this look like an Al Sharpton and Jessee Jackson race baiting shakedown? They would be proud. Hell, the mob would be proud. Then again, is Obama anything any different? This president has done more to harm race relations in this country. Imagine that, seeing that most misguided individuals voted for him to do just the opposite. SHAMEFUL, SIMPLY SHAMEFUL.
Newly uncovered internal memos reveal the Obama administration knowingly exaggerated charges of racial discrimination in probes of Ally Bank and other defendants in the $900 billion car-lending business as part of a “racial justice” campaign that’s looking more like a massive government extortion and shakedown operation.
So far, Obama’s Consumer Financial Protection Bureau has reached more than $220 million in settlements with several auto lenders since the agency launched its anti-discrimination crusade against the industry in 2013. Several other banks are under active investigation.
That’s despite the fact that the CFPB had no actual complaints of racial discrimination — it was all just based on half-baked statistics.
A confidential 23-page internal report detailing CFPB’s strategy for going after lenders shows why these companies are forking over millions of dollars in restitution and fines to the government despite denying any wrongdoing.
The high-level memo, sent by top CFPB civil-rights prosecutors to the bureau’s director and revealed by a House committee, admits their methods for proving discrimination were seriously flawed from the start and had little chance of holding up in court. Yet they figured they could muscle Ally, as well as future defendants, with threats and intimidation.
Let’s hope that America can survive the damage that has been inflicted upon it and its people during this terrible Obama presidency.

Obama Lied Again: State Department Announces 18 Emails Exchanged Between Hillary Clinton and President Barack Obama Will Be Withheld
FLASHBACK: DIDN’T OBAMA SAY HE NEVER NEW OF HILLARY’S PRIVATE EMAIL AND SERVER … State Department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Hillary Clinton and President Obama are going to be withheld.
The Liar in Chief strikes again … In the latest document dump of Hillary Clinton emails we not only learned that there were even more top secret emails on her private server, something that Hillary claimed did not exist, but we also learned that the State Department is withholding 18 emails between Clinton and President Barack Obama. Wait a minute, what do you mean there were 18 emails between Obama and Clinton? I thought Barack Obama back in March 2015 told CBS News, when this scandal hit, that he learned about this story at the same time as the rest of America did? When previously asked when he learned of the revelation of Hillary’s private emails to conduct work as his Secretary of State Obama’s response was, “The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.” LIAR!!! How exactly does one send emails as the President of the United States to his Secretary of State and not notice that the email address does not end in .gov? Yup, Obama kied again and knew all along that Hillary Clinton was using a private email to conduct government business and did nothing about it. More from the most transparent administration ever.
The liar in chief stated when he learned of Hillary Clinton’s use of emails outside the government system …
“The same time everybody else learned it through news reports.”
The State Department on Friday said for the first time that “top secret” material had been sent through Hillary Clinton’s private computer server, and that it would not make public 22 of her emails because they contained highly classified information.
The department announced that 18 emails exchanged between Mrs. Clinton and President Obama would also be withheld, citing the longstanding practice of preserving presidential communications for future release. The department’s spokesman, John Kirby, said that exchanges did not involve classified information.
The disclosure of the top secret emails, three days before Iowans vote in the first-in-the-nation caucuses, is certain to fuel the political debate over the unclassified computer server that Mrs. Clinton, the front-runner for the Democratic presidential nomination, kept in her home. The State Department released another set of her emails on Friday night in response to a Freedom of Information Act request.
Neither Mr. Kirby nor other officials would discuss the emails now being withheld, but the classified emails include those cited in a letter sent to the Senate on Jan. 14 by the inspector general of the nation’s intelligence agencies, I. Charles McCullough III.
Mr. McCullough wrote that “several dozen emails” contained classified information, including some now determined to contain information at the “top secret/S.A.P.” level. That designation refers to “special access programs,” which are among the government’s most closely guarded secrets.
Obama’s Secretary of State John Kerry Says … Funds From Iran Sanctions Relief Could End Up In Terrorists’ Hands
WELCOME TO THE NOT SO SAFE WORLD OF OBAMA IN WONDERLAND … REMEMBER WHEN A PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES PURPOSE WAS TO ACT IN THE BEST INTEREST OF WE THE PEOPLE, NOT THE MULLAHS OF IRAN?
Barack Obama White House and Secretary of State John Kerry both admit that some of the $100′s of billions of unfrozen Iranian assets could find its way to support terrorism. In other words, Barack Obama and John Kerry just negotiated a deal to fund terrorism against the United States. ARE YOU KIDDING ME? These same people will provide you with the twisted logic that the United States and its allies are now safer because of an Iranian nuclear deal, that most rational people know and understand that Iran will never keep its word, and having paid Iran billions, knowing that some of it will go to support and sponsor terrorism.
These people should be jailed for treason. They actually just admitted that they have funded terrorism. So if an individual person does it or is accused of it, they are arrested, thrown in jail, tried, founds guilty and imprisoned. But if Obama does it, he is hailed as a hero. Who is buying this BS?
“I’m not going to sit here and tell you that every component of that could be prevented, but I can tell you this, right now, we are not seeing the early delivery of funds going to that kind of endeavor at this point in time. I’m sure at some point some of it will, but that has never made the difference of what is happening there.”
“The only observation we’ve made on how they would spend the money is the observation from the secretary of state that it certainly seems possible, if not likely, that they will use some of those funds to support acts of terrorisms,” White House press secretary Josh Earnest added later in the day. “That possibility certainly exists.”
What a sick, twisted America we live in under the Obama regime. It took Barack Obama and his band of woefully ignorant and all too willing cronies to pay off Iran and the mullahs; however, the American hostages held in Iran got butkis as the State Department told us Wednesday the settlement isn’t connected to the claims of terrorism victims.
Ali Khamenei congratulated Iran’s diplomats on Tuesday for making the “front of arrogance and bullying”—that would be the U.S.—retreat. Iran’s Supreme Leader has good reason to be happy. Having preserved the core of his nuclear capabilities, his regime is now on the receiving end of a financial windfall.
Take the financial component of the nuclear accord that took formal effect on Saturday. In addition to lifting most sanctions and releasing more than $100 billion in frozen Iranian assets, the Obama Administration over the weekend agreed to pay the mullahs a separate $1.7 billion to settle an Iranian claim dating to the 1970s.
That amount includes a $400 million trust fund used by the Shah to purchase American arms before the 1979 Islamic Revolution, plus $1.3 billion in interest. You can argue whether the trust fund properly belongs to the regime that overthrew the Shah, but at least that $400 million was originally Iranian money.
The $1.3 billion interest payment will come from U.S. taxpayers, which U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry claims “was fixed at a reasonable rate of interest.” Maybe so, but it happens that $1.7 billion is also the amount at issue in a case brought by American victims of Iranian terrorism against the Central Bank of Iran. The plaintiffs include victims and survivors of the 1983 Beirut barracks bombing and the 1996 Khobar Towers bombing, among other Iranian-directed atrocities.
Yet President Obama and Mr. Kerry didn’t press for fair settlements for these victims as part of the nuclear deal and now seem to be pre-emptively reimbursing Tehran for its potential losses from the claims. The State Department told us Wednesday the settlement isn’t connected to the claims of terrorism victims.

UNREAL, REMEMBER WHEN THE MILITARY WAS ABOUT DEFEATING THE ENEMY AND NOT POLITICAL CORRECTNESS?
So the US Navy is going PC because some all of a sudden calling woman who serve in the Navy, Midshipman, is just too mean and makes them feel uncomfortable. The term “midshipman” has been used since the 1600′s, long predating the academy, which opened in 1845. According to the story, women first enlisted in the Navy in 1917, weeks before the United States entered World War I , as yeomen. But suddenly the use of the name “Midshipman” is no longer good. Has this country lost its mind and focus on the task at hand? The fact that our military is wasting any resources to something so silly and ridiculous is just incredible. What else would we expect with Barack Obama as Commander in Chief? So what will the Navy come up with, Midship-people, or maybe Midship-folks?
What happens when you take the “man” out of “midshipman”?
Navy officials will consider this question as they turn to language in an effort to fully integrate women into all levels of the service, including the Naval Academy.
Ray Mabus, the secretary of the Navy, issued a memo to the chief of naval operations on Jan. 1 asking for an “update of position titles and descriptions to demonstrate through this language that women are included in these positions.”
He also wrote: “Please review the position titles throughout the Navy and ensure that they are gender-integrated … removing ‘man’ from their titles.”
So what should it be?
Chief of Naval Operations John Richardson assigned the Navy’s master chief petty officer to establish a group that will, Navy officials said, “canvass the fleet, talk with sailors to hear their thoughts and provide recommendations on feedback.”
I have an idea, how about the US Navy focus on their job of protecting America and not get embarrassed by having their sailors taken hostage by Iranians on the seas and forced to put their hands over their heads and surrender their weapons. Hmm?
“13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” Out Today … Go Watch It … Movie Reignites ‘Stand-Gown’ Order Debate .. “Hillary Is a Liar!” (VIDEO)
MAKE IT A POINT TO SEE THIS MOVIE THIS WEEK AND BRING YOUR HILLARY CLINTON LIBERAL SUPPORTING FRIENDS …
Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” is set to be released everywhere on Friday. This is a must see movie. As stated at the Politico, the new Benghazi movie reignites ‘stand-down’ order debate. Sorry, if I happen to believe the people who actually were there as opposed to the pathetic, rotten lying politicians trying to cover the collective asses of Barack Obama and then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Our governments action with regards to the terror attacks in Benghazi will forever be a low-point in America history where those in power just left Americans to die and then blamed the radical Islamist terror attack on a tape. Shame on them and shame on the media for covering up the story.
The creators of a new Hollywood blockbuster about the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack are renewing the politically explosive allegation that commandos called to defend the U.S. compound were told to “stand down” — a claim Democrats say has no basis in fact.
With Michael Bay’s “13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi” set to premiere Thursday, the five surviving members of the six-man Benghazi security team have blitzed the airwaves to promote the film and renew their assertion that a top CIA officer delayed them from immediately answering State Department distress calls. Three even testified to the same before the House Select Committee on Benghazi last spring, several sources have confirmed to POLITICO.
“There is no sensationalism in that: We were told to ‘stand down,’” said former Special Forces Officer Kris Paronto, one of the CIA contractors who fought that night, in an interview with Politico. “Those words were used verbatim — 100 percent. … If the truth of it affects someone’s political career? Well, I’m sorry. It happens.”
Pat Smith, mother of State Department official Sean Smith who was murdered at the Benghazi Consulate on 9-11-3012, screamed out, “Hillary is a liar!” after watching the movie ’13 Hours.’
Pat Smith joined Megyn Kelly tonight after attending the opening of ’13 Hours’ last night in Dallas, Texas.
She sobbed as she told Megyn about the movie.
I left as soon as Sean came on screen, or the person who portrayed him. I couldn’t handle it. HILLARY IS A LIAR! I know what she told me!
Smith was referring to Hillary’s bogus claims that a YouTube video was behind the deadly attacks.
Pat Smith later said she wants Hillary in jail.
