Daily Show’s Jon Stewart Rips Barack Obama & Eric Holder for Failing to Attend Paris March: “Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”
”Unbelievable!” … “Je Suis To e Kidding Me”
From The Daily Show, Jon Stewart rips President Barack Obama for not attending the ‘Unity March’ in Paris, France on Sunday as world leader came together for freedom and liberty and against radical Islam. Stewart mocked Obama saying, how could Obama not be there, look how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized to.” One would think that alone would have had Obama running to the event.
“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”
(The money comments begin around the 4:15 minute mark of the video)
Stewart, visibly perplexed, questioned how the leader of the free world failed to participate in the march.
“How can Obama not be there?” he asked. “Look at how many world leaders he could have bowed down to and apologized. He missed an opportunity.”
“How can the U.S. not be there when representatives from of such beacons of freedom and lack of censorship as journalist-punishing Russia was there?” Stewart continued. “Journalist-jailing Turkey was there. Egypt — enough said.”
Stewart then slammed Attorney General Eric Holder for not representing the U.S. at the march, even though he was in Paris as it took place.
“What the f***?” the comedian said. “Eric Holder, you were in France! In Paris! At the time of the march and were like, ‘eh’?”
“Unbelievable! An enormous global rally in supporting freedom of expression after an attack on a close ally and the U.S. was a no-show? It’s going to take a lot to make up for this.”
Obama White House Says, It’s Fair to Say We Were Wrong on Paris Unity Rally … WH Caught with Its Pants Down or Purposeful Decision?
Sorry Barack Obama, this is a little bigger than, oh sorry, my bad.
The Obama administration is in full spin CYA mode in the wake of the outrage of U.S President failing to attend the “Unity” march with numerous other world leaders as he opted to stay home instead and watch football. Quick, get the PR machine out there to lie to the media and people. White House spokesman Josh Earnest did his best to spin his way through the disastrous visuals and symbolism of Barack Obama or any other high level US leader being present for the march against radical Islam. White House spokesman Earnest said, “It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there.” What ever do you mean, you mean sending no one of any importance what-so-ever was wrong? None of you could have figured this out in advance? Sorry, but that is BS. Obama told us all in the past that Bin Laden was dead and terrorism was on the run. To suddenly acknowledge that France just had their own 9-11 moment would go against Obama’s down playing of terrorism.
Barack Obama could not be reached for comment he was too busy
The White House said Monday that it made a mistake in not sending President Obama or a top administration official to the weekend unity march in Paris, a rare concession that it had botched the optics of an important international event.
“It’s fair to say we should have sent someone with a higher profile to be there,” White House spokesman Josh Earnest told reporters at his briefing, which was dominated by questions about the march.
“We want to send a clear message, even in a symbolic context like this one, that the American people stand shoulder-to-shoulder with our allies in France,” said Earnest. “And sending a high-level, highly visible senior administration official with a high profile to that march would have done that.”
He dodged questions about who was responsible for the decision to have the U.S. be represented by the U.S. ambassador to France, saying only that it was a staff-level call the president was not personally involved in.
So, some how Barack Obama and his minions could see the importance of sending people to Ferguson, Missouri and to the funeral of an individual who robbed a store and assaulted a police officer, but they could not see the importance of supporting one of America’s greatest allies in France and 40 world leaders coming together in a show of solidarity against radical Islam.
The JV Presidency.
Wait, White House aides said Sunday, as they saw coverage come in of the anti-terrorism march in Paris — Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is there? Jordan’s King Abdullah? The presidents of Gabon, Benin, Niger? Not to mention the leaders of the United Kingdom, Germany, Spain, Italy and other major allies — and even Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov?
Somehow an event that the French didn’t even announce until Friday had quickly gathered momentum, drawing about three dozen foreign leaders to Paris to express their outrage at the killings of French citizens at a satire magazine and a Jewish supermarket last week. America’s representative, Ambassador Jane Hartley, looked a little out of place.
White House aides were so caught off guard by the march’s massive size and attention that they hadn’t even asked President Barack Obama if he wanted to go.

President Barack Obama Snubs World Leaders and France, Skips Historic Unity Rally in Paris to Watch Football
UM, THIS IS WHAT LEADING FROM BEHIND LOOKS LIKE AMERICA, OR ZERO LEADERSHIP WHATSOEVER.
It is one thing for Barack Obama to treat “We the People” with such disdain, but for the International man of mystery and rock star to snub Europe like this is breathtaking. Barack Obama skipped the historic “Unity” rally in Paris, France that was attended by 50 other world leaders. Obama did not send VP Joe Biden or Secretary of State Kerry either. But wait until you hear what important things Obama was doing instead of attending a rally against radical Islam and in support of our allies … Obama was watching football.
Barack Obama Missing … Where’s Waldo?
According to an administration official, President Obama spent part of his Sunday afternoon watching a National Football League game on television. Both games were broadcast hours after the march.
Heads of state from every major European power, including British Prime Minister David Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, joined French President Francois Hollande.
But the U.S.A. was M.I.A.
You fools thought I actually believe I care about you and your war on radical Islam, I’m watching me some football.
Obama and Vice President Joe Biden remained in Washington, despite having no events on their public schedules Sunday. Secretary of State John Kerry was a world away in India, on a pre-planned trip.
Attorney General Eric Holder was in Paris for a terrorism summit held on the march’s sidelines, but he slipped away and made appearances on four American morning television talk shows just as the incredible rally was starting.
The US was represented at the march only by Jane Hartley, the American ambassador to France who is unrecognizable to most Americans, let alone the rest of the world.
Now the world knows what we Americans have none for years, Obama is the worst president in American history.
Attorney General Eric Holder Cannot Simply Say “YES” When Asked Asked by Todd & Stephanopoulos Whether the US is at War with Radical Islam
AND YOU WONDER WHY BARACK OBAMA AND JOE WERE NOT PRESENT, AND HOLDER DIDN’T MARCH IN UNISON WITH THE OTHER WORLD LEADERS IN PARIS, THEY DON’T BELIEVE THERE IS A WAR ON RADICAL ISLAM.
America, i hope you are proud of yourselves, this is the administration you not only elected once, but you did so again for a second time. This Sunday morning on NBC’s ‘Meet the Press’ and ABC’s ‘This Week,’ Attorney General Eric Holder was asked by both Chuck Todd and George Stephanopoulos whether the United States was at war with radical Islam. Holder could not find it in himself to simply say, yes we are. UNREAL. These people will be the death of us all. HOW ON EARTH CAN YOU DEFEAT THE ENEMY, IF YOU CANNOT DEFINE THE ENEMY!
Even France’s Prime Minister Manuel Valls said that France was at war with radical Islam. However, this sorry bunch of SOB’s in the Obama administrations cannot bring themselves to say it … RADICAL ISLAM.
From NBC’s ‘Meet the Press,’ Eric Holder cannot say that the United States is at war with radical Islam.
Chuck Todd: the French Prime Minister today declared the France is at war with radical Islam. Would you say the United States is at war with radical Islam?
Eric Holder: Well, I would say we are at war with terrorists who commit these heinous acts. Who use Islam. Who use a corrupted version of Islam to justify their actions. We are bound and determined to hold them accountable. To find which ways we prevent young people who become attracted to this radical ideology, becoming members of these groups and perpetrating these heinous acts.
Eric Holder also made similar comments when asked by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos the same question. (Transcript)
STEPHANOPOULOS: The French prime minister said yesterday that France is at war with radical Islam. Is the U.S. At war with radical Islam?
HOLDER: Well, I certainly think that we are at war with those who would commit terrorist attacks and who would corrupt the Islamic faith in the way that they do, to try to justify their terrorist actions.
So that’s who we are at — at war with. And we are determined to take the fight to them to prevent them from engaging in these kinds of activities.
Our president has indicated that we will be calling, on February the 18th, a summit, so that we deal with better ways in which we can counter violent extremism and really get at the core, come up with ways in which we prevent people from adhering to, being attracted to this terrorist ideology.
50 World Leaders at Paris Anti-Terror, Day of Unity Rally, But No President Barack Obama, VP Joe Biden or Sec. of State John Kerry
MILLIONS GATHER AGAINST TERRORISM: Noticeable absent from the worlds show of unity against radical Muslim terrorism was President Barack Hussein Obama …
Nearly four million turned out across France today for unity rallies and nearly one million in Paris, the largest number of people turned out in Paris France since the liberation of Paris from Nazi, Germany during World War II. The more than 50 world leaders showed at the Paris march for the “Day of Unity” that included those from Germany, Italy, Poland, Israel, the UK, Ireland, Mali, the UN Secretary General, the US Secretary of State and the Palestinian President. The world leaders and millions of people paid their honor and respects to the 17 individuals who were killed by radical-Muslim terrorist in the last few days at Charlie Hebdo and a Paris kosher deli. Yesterday, the France’s Prime Minister declared war with radical Islam.
Vive la liberté!!!

On Friday, the House of Representatives passed a bill approving the building on the XL Keystone pipeline 266-153. The long delayed project has been stalled by Barack Obama and his pandering to the Left-wing environmental-wackos was passed by the GOP controlled House along with 28 Democrat votes. It was passed just hours after a court in Nebraska cleared a final legal hurdle. The Senate is supposed to vote on the Keystone pipeline next week where it will most certainly be passed in the new Republican controlled Senate with some Democrat support as well. However, Barack Obama has already stated that he will veto the bill proving that he never had any intention, nor Democrats of ever passing the it.
Charles Krauthammer on Obama’s Veto Threat: Republicans Should Say, “Bring It On, Mr. President.”
“There is no better way for the GOP to position itself for the 2016 elections and to show the country two things. One now that it controls the House and the Senate and now that Harry Reid is no longer there as the blocking guard for the president. That’s the reason why he didn’t have to use the veto. With Harry Reid gone and Mitch McConnell running the Senate, they are able to enact the agenda, they have an agenda. They should be willing to pass whatever they can and dare the president to use the veto.”
The Keystone XL pipeline cleared its first hurdle of the new Congress on Friday when the House voted to approve construction of the long-stalled project, just hours after a court in Nebraska cleared a final legal hurdle there.
The 266-153 vote saw 28 Democrats side with the GOP in backing the pipeline, signaling significant though not overwhelming support for the controversial project that would carry crude oil from Canada into the U.S. for refinement.
President Obama has already vowed a veto, and the vote signals there are probably not enough votes to override him if he does follow through.
The House has approved Keystone before, but the project has stalled in the Senate, which was controlled by Democrats. The GOP took control this week, however, and is speeding its own bill through its chamber, with an early test-vote slated for Monday.
“There is no excuse — scientific or otherwise — for the president to continue blocking the pipeline,” said House Speaker John A. Boehner. “An overwhelming majority of Americans support this job-creating energy project and President Obama ought to respect their will and stop standing in the way.”
Charles Krauthammer: The Terror Attack in France on Charlie Charlie Hebdo Shows We Can Not Retain The Ambivalence Obama Has Taken Toward Nature Of War
Last night on Special Report syndicated columnist and Fox News contributor Charles Krauthammer called the war on terror under President Barack Obama for what it has been, a non-seriousness of the big picture in a war against those that want to destroy us and our way of life in jihad. This is not to be conducted as a police action, it is war.
“And we have a president and these events remind us that you cannot retain this ambivalence about the seriousness of this and the nature of the war.”
CHARLES KRAUTHAMMER: Obama said we stand with the people of Ukraine. He said that we stand with the people of Syria. You know, they did the hashtag and the tweet of the girls in Nigeria. It’s nice to say all these things but if you are — by default or whatever reason — the leader of the free world as we have been you’re supposed to do something if you say that.
Look, I don’t think you want to blame anybody. I just think that these events are a reminder, and it’s not so much the attack on Australia, which was a semi-lunatic, who was sort of, you know, a deranged — there are deranged people around the world who will latch on to this ideology and abuse it. These guys did not look like deranged wanderers trying to discover a purpose or an identity. These are people who are killers, trained — the way they executed that cop laying on the street.
This is a war against an enemy and these are the elements of it. And we have a president and these events remind us that you cannot retain this ambivalence about the seriousness of this and the nature of the war. And that’s what worries me because as long as we think that we can deal with this like law enforcement we are going to be continuing to be exposed to a threat that could hit us as easily as it hits them and it deprives us of the weapons like interrogation, like intelligence, like human intelligence that Obama is depriving us of and has been for six years.

The Affordable Care Act, Barack Obama’s signature piece of legislation has just been one lie after another …
Remember when President Barack Obama promised that Obamacare would reduce the number of expensive ER visits as access to other kinds of care was expanded? But of course this is the same signature piece of legislation where Obama promised that you could keep your own doctor, hospital and insurance plan if you liked them. Those were all lies as well. When the majority of people that are signing up for it are doing so as a form of medicaid, of course the ER is going to be used as a clinic. It doesn’t take a brain surgeon to figure that one out. But of course Obama was going to lie through his teeth to the American people to get Obamacare passed, as Jonathan Gruber said, they had all considered the stupidity of the American voter to be key.
With the healthcare expansion last year, many are watching how the Affordable Care Act affects emergency room use.
President Obama has promised his signature health law will gradually reduce expensive ER visits as access to other kinds of care is expanded. Critics contend newly insured patients — especially those enrolled in Medi-Cal, the state’s low-income health program that picks up most patient costs — aren’t likely to seek care elsewhere, and will overwhelm emergency rooms.
Neither of those outcomes were clearly evident in the first months of the new healthcare system’s operation in Los Angeles County, according to a Los Angeles Times analysis.
Data hospitals report to the state show that as insurance coverage was extended to hundreds of thousands of residents, ER visits for ailments not serious enough to require an admission grew 3.9% in the county in the first half of 2014, compared with the same period the previous year. The growth is in line with annual increases of 3% to 5% in the three years prior to the federal healthcare overhaul.
- If you like your plan, you can keep your plan. If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.
- “Affordable” Care. Obamacare Will Make Health Insurance More Affordable, even the president’s ideological cronies acknowledge that the Affordable Care Act is far from inexpensive for most Americans and that it “risks being a cruel joke.”
- It will prevent people from going into debt.
- ObamaCare will lower costs overall.
- Congress Meant for Subsidies to Flow Through State-based and Federal Exchanges
- More Americans will be insured.

De Blasio Has No Intention of Fixing Riff with NYPD … NYC Mayor Reappointed Brooklyn Judge Laura Johnson
NYC Mayor Continues to poke his finger in the eyes of the NYPD … De Blazio is a Disgrace.
It would appear that NYC Mayor Bill De Blazio plans to challenge Barack Obama for the #1 community agitator of 2015. After saying that he supports police and wants to bridge the divide that currently exists between the NYPD and the Mayors office, De Blazio reappointed Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson to another year on Wednesday. This is the same judge who let individuals out of jail without bail who made terrorist threats against police officers. One of who was a gang member charged with posting police death threats online. REALLY? This is the mayor that wants to make amends with the police? What a crock.
Sergeants union chief Ed Mullins said of De Blasio’s actions, “He had the opportunity to demonstrate good will and support for the police, and he once again has demonstrated the opposite.” Dennis Quirk, the head of the state court officers union, called de Blasio’s decision “a disgrace.”
NYC Mayor De Blazio, left – Judge Laura Johnson, right
Mayor Bill de Blasio delivered another blow to New York’s Finest on Wednesday when he reappointed a Brooklyn judge who freed without bail two men who threatened cops just days after the Bed-Stuy double police assassination.
The stunning decision came even as one of the suspects — a gang member charged with posting police death threats online — skipped a court date and had a warrant out for his arrest, sources said.
Brooklyn Criminal Court Judge Laura Johnson had faced a midnight expiration of her term. She was appointed by then-Mayor Mike Bloomberg in January 2013.
Her one-year, interim reappointment by de Blasio outraged law enforcement officials a day after he met with the heads of five police unions to heal his fractured relationship with cops.
“The mayor’s actions of reappointing this judge are completely hypocritical to his argument that he’s pro-police and counterproductive to what he claims to be an effort to open dialogue going forward,” said sergeants union chief Ed Mullins.
“He had the opportunity to demonstrate good will and support for the police, and he once again has demonstrated the opposite.”
The head of the state court officers union, Dennis Quirk, called de Blasio’s decision “a disgrace.”
With these types of actions by De Blazio, no one has the right to tell the NYPD that they have no right to turn their backs to this Judas.
UPDATE I: The Daily News discusses whether de Blasio’s tense relationship with the NYPD casting shadow over DNC bid for 2016.
In other words, Democrat Party officials could care less that their liberal NYC mayor does not support the people who protect and serve, but rather the optics and how it will cast a bad light on Democrats. Screw the police, this is just about the further liberal politicization of the police doing their job.
Party officials are concerned the bad blood might still be an issue when the convention is held in 2016, stealing the spotlight from the party’s presidential nominee, a top Democrat told the Daily News.
“They’re worried about the optics,” said the source, who is familiar with the Democratic National Committee’s deliberations.
“Will [the police] turn their backs on the mayor? They don’t want side stories. The story should be the convention.”
GRUBERGATE: Barack Obama Adviser Jonathan Gruber Said Back in 2009, Obamacare Will Not Be Affordable
GRUBERGATE: HE’S BACK … GRUBER SAID IN 2009 THAT THE AFFORDABLE HEALTHCARE ACT WOULD NOT BE AFFORDABLE.
Imagine that, once of the chief architects of Obamacare, the Affordable Healthcare Act, said back in 2009 that it would not be affordable. Newly revealed Johnathan Gruber documents keep the unpopular signature piece of legislation by Barack Obama at the forefront of political discussion as 2015 will be much like 2014 for Democrats, running for cover and away from Obamacare. Johnathan Gruber is like the gift that keeps on giving. The docs reveal that Gruber questioned the affordability. Gruber said, “So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”
American voters are stupid and Obamacare will not be affordable
President Obama’s health care adviser Jonathan Gruber said that the Affordable Care Act would definitely not be affordable while he was writing the bill with the White House.
As Gruber continues to withhold documents while he awaits a call-back for more testimony before the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee in the new year, more shocking information is coming to light detailing the deceptions that went into the writing of the health-care law
Gruber said that Obamacare had no cost controls in it and would not be affordable in an October 2009 policy brief, presented here exclusively by TheDC. At the time, Gruber had already personally counseled Obama in the Oval Office and served on Obama’s presidential transition team. Obama, meanwhile, told the American people that their premiums would go down dramatically.
Gruber goes on to admit that there were NO cost controls initially in Obamacare, that they would deceptively get people hooked on faux coverage, then pull the rug out from underneath them by rationing care:
“So what’s different this time? Why are we closer than we’ve ever been before? Because there are no cost controls in these proposals. Because this bill’s about coverage. Which is good! Why should we hold 48 million uninsured people hostage to the fact that we don’t yet know how to control costs in a politically acceptable way? Let’s get the people covered and then let’s do cost control.”
At the same time, Obama was lying to Americans, telling us that annual premium costs would decline by an average of $2,500 per family, a number that was apparently pulled out of thin air.
Gruber then admits that, under Obamacare, the only way for the scheme to work will be by rationing care:
“There’s no reason the American health care system can’t be, ‘You can have whatever you want, you just have to pay for it.’ That’s what we do in other walks of life. We don’t say everyone has to have a large screen TV. If you want a large screen TV, you have to pay for it. Basically the notion would be to move to a level where everyone has a solid basic insurance level of coverage. Above that people pay their own, without tax-subsidized dollars, to buy a higher level of coverage.”
