Barack Obama Slams Trump Building a Wall During Rutgers Commencement Speech … As the White House Builds a Higher Fence (VIDEO)
BARACK OBAMA THE HYPOCRITE IN CHIEF IS AT IT AGAIN …
Isn’t this amazing and oh so typical, as Barack Obama tells a graduating class at Rutgers University during a commencement speech that building walls doesn’t change anything. Oh course this was a backhanded slap at Donald Trump by Obama. Could you be any more small? And more of a hypocrite? The liar in chief was back at it again trying to tell millennials that building a wall to keep illegals out was a bad this as the White House is currently constructing a taller fence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue to keep people out. Shocker. Obama claims walls don’t solve ills, really?
President Obama used his commencement speech at Rutgers University to tear into Donald Trump’s trade agenda, his Muslim ban, and his planned wall on the U.S.-Mexico border.As he did at an address at Howard University earlier this spring, the president went straight after Trump’s most controversial policies after the usual bromides hailing graduates and name-dropping their favorite greasy spoons and watering holes.
‘The world is more interconnected than ever before. And it’s becoming more connected every day. Building walls won’t change that,’ Obama said.
‘To help ourselves, we’ve got to help others, not pull up the drawbridge and try to keep the world out,’ Obama said.
Obama never mentioned Donald Trump by name but he clearly advised against believing in the Republican candidate’s campaign platform. Obama stated, “The world is more interconnected than ever before. Building walls won’t change that.” Obama also said that ignorance is not a virtue and not knowing what you’re talking about shouldn’t be viewed as telling it like it is. It should be viewed as a rejection of responsible thought.
The White House fence is currently 6 feet tall, this one goes to 11.
But wait, Obama slams Trump for wanting to build a wall to protect the United States borders and sovereignty, as the White House is getting its fences raised 5 feet in order to keep trespassers out. Imagine that, higher and stronger fences do work. So it is okay for the White House to have a higher fence to keep people out, but it is not okay for the United States of America to have the same. First they installed spikes on top of the fence and now plan on making it taller. Hmm, anyone see a double standard here?
The U.S. Secret Service plans to raise the height of the White House security fence by 5 feet and add a new concrete foundation to reduce the risk of fence-jumpers, according to a copy of an agency report obtained by the News4 I-Team.
The agency, along with the National Park Service, said it intends to begin building a “taller, stronger” fence to protect the White House grounds by 2018.
And from the Right Wing News comes more Obama hypocrisy when it comes to walls …
But, seriously, what about walls? Obama lives behind a big fence, one which the Secret Service wants to make bigger. Five feet bigger. And the security for the fence, an attempt to keep the world out, includes armed security, many with sniper rifles.
Apparently, walls work, because Team Obama is funding a wall on the Tunisia/Libya border to stop the flow of Islamists. There’s also partial funding for a wall in Jordan. And supposedly one in Niger to stop Boko Haram.
Senate Republicans State No Hearings & No Votes for Obama’s Supreme Court Pick Just Like Joe Biden Stated in 1992
SORRY DEMOCRATS, THE REPUBLICANS ARE JUST DOING WHAT JOE BIDEN HAD PREVIOUSLY SAID THE DEMOCRATS WOULD DO TO GEORGE H.W. BUSH …
Washington, DC is full of hypocrites and this time the Democrats are about to eat a great big hypocrisy sandwich. Yesterday, Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) announced with the solidarity and united front of Republicans that there would be no hearings and no votes for any Supreme Court justice nominee until Obama is out of office. Obama, Biden, Schumer and the rest of the Democrats can all claim that they are outraged and this is a disgrace to the process, but they are all on record in the past of saying and doing the same thing. Actually in 1992 Biden stated as the head of the judiciary committee, “The Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling hearings on the nomination, until after the political campaign season is over.” As opined at Hot Air, Democrat Chucky Schumer is at a loss for words when trying to spin Biden’s comments. That’s a first.
We are going to hold the spineless McConnell and Senate Republicans to Mitch’s recent comment … There will be a political revolution if he goes back on these words.
Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell told a group of staunch House conservatives there isn’t “a snowball’s chance in hell” that he will back down from his opposition to confirming a Supreme Court justice before a new president is elected.
Senate Republicans on Tuesday united behind an official position on how to deal with President Obama’s expected nominee to replace the late Supreme Court justice Antonin Scalia: no hearings, no votes and no new justice until Obama is out of office.
“Presidents have a right to nominate, just as the Senate has its constitutional right to provide or withhold consent,” Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) said in a morning floor speech. “In this case, the Senate will withhold it.”
That declaration was underscored after McConnell held a closed-door meeting with Republicans sitting on the Senate Judiciary Committee. All 11 GOP panel members subsequently signed a letter pledging not to hold hearings on any replacement for Scalia until a new president is inaugurated.
Their decision not to act, they said, was “based on constitutional principle and born of a necessity to protect the will of the American people.” But Republican senators have also been emboldened in recent days by past statements from Democratic senators arguing against confirming the judicial nominees of Republican presidents in election years.
In particularly heavy rotation Tuesday was Vice President Biden’s 1992 suggestion, made when he was a senator and chairman of the Judiciary Committee, that the panel ought to “seriously consider” not holding hearings on an election-year Supreme Court nominee.
Joe Biden Said in 1992 that a President Should Not Name a SCOTUS Nominee “Once the Political Campaign Season is Underway”
EVEN BARACK OBAMA’S VP SAYS THAT OBAMA SHOULD NOT APPOINT A SCOTUS NOMINEE ONCE THE POLITICAL SEASON HAS STARTED …
Check out the VIDEO below where in 1992 Sen. Joe Biden says that a president should not nominate a SCOTUS once the political season is underway. Hmm, just how hypocritical is this White House? Barack Obama has previously filibustered previous SCOTUS nominees, but now talks a different game when the shoe is on the other foot. So did Senate Democrats. So does his VP. Biden literally stated that he not only did not want the Supreme Court Justice vacancy filled, but he also did not want the Judiciary Committee to even hold hearings on a nomination. Well how do you like that? Biden wanted President Bush to decline from making a nomination altogether. Boy aren’t the two hypocrites in the White House singing a different tune these days.
Game, Set and Match … Obama gets no say in who the next SCOTUS will be. According to Biden’s own words, if allowed, “we will be in deep trouble as a an institution.”
But when he was chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee in June 1992, Biden suggested Democrats should “seriously consider” not holding confirmation hearings for a Supreme Court nominee put forward by President George H.W. Bush if a justice were to retire in the final months of the presidential election year.
“The Senate Judiciary Committee should seriously consider not scheduling hearings on the nomination, until after the political campaign season is over,” Biden said in a floor address on June 25, 1992, about reforming the Supreme Court confirmation process.
We all knew that one day Joe Biden would put his foot in his mouth with all of his crazy comments. Who knew that it would be one regarding the appointment of SCOTUS nominees and would knee cap Barack Obama. As Hot Air opines, thanks Joe!
How do you spin this if you’re the White House? I guess by focusing on the calendar. Biden said this in late June, several weeks after Bill Clinton had effectively clinched the Democratic nomination. The claim here will be that when Biden said “once the political season is underway,” he meant the general election, not the primary. But there’s no reason to draw that kind of line. The possibility that the next president will fill Scalia’s vacancy is already affecting votes in the process of choosing that president. All we can do now is let the process play out. Thanks, Joe!
“Historically, this has not been viewed as a question,” Mr. Obama said last week. “There’s no unwritten law that says that it can only be done on off years — that’s not in the constitutional text.”
But in a speech on the Senate floor in June 1992, Mr. Biden, then the chairman of the Judiciary Committee, said there should be a different standard for a Supreme Court vacancy “that would occur in the full throes of an election year.” The president should follow the example of “a majority of his predecessors” and delay naming a replacement, Mr. Biden said. If he goes forward before then, the Senate should wait to consider the nomination.
“Some will criticize such a decision and say that it was nothing more than an attempt to save a seat on the court in hopes that a Democrat will be permitted to fill it, but that would not be our intention,” Mr. Biden said at the time. “It would be our pragmatic conclusion that once the political season is underway, and it is, action on a Supreme Court nomination must be put off until after the election campaign is over.
“That is what is fair to the nominee and essential to the process. Otherwise, it seems to me,” he added, “we will be in deep trouble as an institution.”
Mr. Biden’s speech came to light on Monday as the White House said Mr. Obama was poring through a thick binder of potential nominees, with an eye toward deciding on his pick within weeks. It quickly became fodder for Republicans who have suggested that the president should wait to name a successor to Justice Scalia, or that the Senate should delay considering one.
Two Faces of Democrat Chucky Schumer … FLASHBACK: In 2007, Schumer Called For Blocking All Bush Supreme Court Nominations (VIDEO)
The lying, duplicitous, double-talking Democrat Chucky Schumer was against lame duck presidential SCOTUS appointments, before he was for it …
So Schumer was all for the status quo of the balance of power of the SCOTUS in 2007, why not now? Democrat Sen. Chuck Schumer took to the Sunday talk shows to state that the Republicans had no right to block Barack Obama from appointing a new SCOTUS following the sudden death Justice Antonin Scalia over the weekend. Scumer was appalled that the GOP would do such a thing. REALLY? It was just in 2007 while GWB was in his final 18 months of his presidency that Schumer stated the exactly same thing. The hypocritical Schumer vowed not to confirm any justices for the remainder of Bush’s term in office. But of course this is different, because an Obama nominee would be a liberal ideologue.
“We should not confirm any Bush nominee to the Supreme Court except in extraordinary circumstances … Considering the Constitutional harm and dramatic departures that are in store if those few are joined by one more ideological ally … I will do everything in my power to prevent one more ideological ally from joining Roberts and Alito on the court.”
Now all of a sudden Schumer is whining and crying a river of obstruction when they , namely he, stated to do the same. Schumer stated in his ABC interview, we Democrats didn’t do it. REALLY?
During a Sunday morning appearance on ABC’s “This Week,” Democratic Sen. Charles Schumer decried the intent of many Senate Republicans to prevent President Barack Obama from appointing the successor to deceased Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia.
But less than a decade ago, Schumer advocated doing the same exact thing if any additional Supreme Court vacancies opened under former President George W. Bush.
Almost immediately after Scalia’s death was announced Saturday evening, Republican lawmakers and presidential candidates began arguing the appointment of his successor should be left to the next president. Schumer lamented this outlook as pure obstructionism.
Hmm … Schumer claims the Democrats have never done this before … can you say BORK?
HYPOCRISY ALERT: Hillary Clinton Boarding Private Jet Just Hours After Launching Her Global-Warming Push and Stating It is One of the Most Urgent Threats of our Time
More from the liberal Democrat Hillary Clinton playbook of do what I say, not as I do, I am more important than you …
Hypocrisy Alert from the never transparent and untrustworthy Democrat presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton. Not less than one hour after Hillary Clinton lectured Americans and put forth her vision to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon cutting plan in Iowa, she got on a private jet, with a carbon footprint the size of Iowa and flew off. You see, after Hillary told us what she was going to inflict upon all of us, her heiress got a an aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. Hmm, isn’t that exactly the thing that she just got through lecturing us that shouldn’t be done? But of course Hillary Clinton and her spin doctor minions would have you believe, she is just one of us little people and wants to represent you.
What Difference Does It Make that I Continually Lie Through My Teeth?
Clinton said during her speech, that global warming is one of the most urgent threats of our time, and we have no choice but to rise and meet it.” REALLY? Just curious Hillary, if its such an urgent threat of our time, what the hell are going doing boarding a private, jet fuel guzzling plane? Oh, there are different rules for you? One would think that if they are going to be so brazen and put forth such a myth as global warming is an urgent threat, they would at least walk the walk.
Just hours after Hillary Clinton unveiled her presidential campaign’s push to solve global warming through an aggressive carbon-cutting plan, she sauntered up the steps of a 19-seat private jet in Des Moines, Iowa.
The aircraft, a Dassault model Falcon 900B, burns 347 gallons of fuel per hour. And like all Dassault business jets, Hillary’s ride was made in France.
The Trump-esque transportation costs $5,850 per hour to rent, according to the website of Executive Fliteways, the company that owns it.
And she has used the same plane before, including on at least one trip for speeches that brought her $500,000 in fees.
On Monday the Democratic presidential front-runner announced the details of her initiative to tackle climate change, calling it ‘one of the most urgent threats of our time.’
But shortly afterward, a videographer working with the conservative America Rising PAC spotted her at the private air terminal in Des Moines.
