OBAMA’S ADMINISTRATION COMPLAINING ABOUT PROTOCOL!!!

Arlin hits the nail on the head. Well thought out and demonstrates precisely why Obama isn’t going to be listed as anything other than the worst president in our history. He can dish it out, but those big ears hear every negative comment and he can’t take it!

Arlin Report

Imperial-President

Protocol: The official procedure or system of rules governing affairs of state or diplomatic occasions.

John Boehner has invited Prime Minister Netanyahu to speak before a joint Congress.   Obama and his administration are screaming Netanyahu and Boehner are breaking protocol.

Obama rules are the often quoted: “Do as I say, not as I do!”…..that is how he (choke) governs.  You have a president that has no respect for the Constitution (the ultimate doctrine of protocol; yeah I know someone would argue that).  It is ironic, laughable that Obama expects everyone else to follow the rules.  But is it really about that? Obama, could care less about protocol.

Obama does not like Netanyahu, that is obvious.   It may be he isn’t so concerned about what Congress will hear from the Prime Minister as it is the American public.   Obama does not want Netanyahu to outshine him on his…

Cuba Could End Being Obama’s Waterloo!

In his desperate search for anything that could be called a legacy in a positive vein, Barack Obama has stumbled on normalizing relations with Cuba. What a boon, he thought! I’m sure he felt he could bring trade and tourism to this poor, run down, disheveled island nation, and give it some Yanqui Dinero, and they would be begging for us to show up and recognize them. Wouldn’t that be just wonderful? People in this country would have another cruise ship port of call to make. They could actually buy and bring home Cuban cigars! We could go down there and watch their baseball games before the New York Yankees pick all the best players up!

Ah, but Bobo failed to realize one thing. Cuba, even a poor, run down, disheveled island nation of Cuba, may not want the Yanqui influence! And it appears that they don’t. All Bobo wanted in return for normalization of relations with Cuba was a simple little acknowledgement that Cuba would start to move toward democracy. That’s all. They didn’t have to really do it…just say they’re going to do it! And you know what they told us? Go pound sand.

The Cubans want a couple of things. First of all, they don’t want to be told what type of government to have. This dictatorship has been pretty sweet for the Castro family since the early 60’s thank you. So what if the people are hungry, and they’re driving around in 60 year old Chevrolets? Second, the Cubans want all trade embargos lifted. Now, that really shouldn’t be that big a deal. The United States is the only country out there that’s still got a trade embargo with Cuba. It’s not like they can’t get trade from any other country in Europe or Canada or Mexico. They just can’t get Yanqui goods. Third, they want Guantanamo Bay back. The US has this extremely long lease on the property and apparently, despite how Bobo feels about it, the US isn’t quite ready to give it up yet. But that’s one of the conditions the Castro brothers have thrown at us. You want us as neighbors? You give us back our base at Guantanamo! Bobo wouldn’t mind that a bit, but he may have a problem getting it through congress.

Unfortunately for Obama, I’ve got the feeling that if he normalizes relations with Cuba, it’s going to cost a lot more than sending some new cars down there along with a million or so tourists a year. I think it’ll be his undoing. I think he’s going to have to give away the store. That’s one thing about Bobo…he’s not a very shrewd negotiator. He’s not a very shrewd president. And if he sees something, he gives the candy store away in order to get it. Just ask Bowe Bergdahl.

Somehow, things don’t work out for Obama like he plans them. Probably because he’s the only one that sees the world the way he sees the world now that Saul Alinsky is dead. And I have a feeling if he tries to normalize relations with Cuba, it’s going to rear up and bite him in the ass.

Ouch!

The Irrelevent President

Have you noticed that the world seems to be in utter turmoil? Chaos abounds just about everywhere you look, and in the middle of it all, you’ve got Barack Obama trying to tell the world he’s still relevent. Waving his hands in the air like he’s signaling a plane as if to say, “Hey! I’m still here! They told me 8 years….it’s only been 6!”.

You got your first clue of Obama’s lack of importance with Syria. Here’s this little piss of a country that isn’t much bigger than my bedroom closet, and I think my closet probably has more money in it. And Syria is pushing Obama around over chemical weapons. Then you’ve got Iran, not necessarily the puny kid on the block, but let’s be frank here…these guys are not a world power by any definition you want to use. They are pushing Bobo around like he’s the overweight kid in gym class trying to run the 100 yard dash without falling over…or reaching for his inhaler. Then you’ve got North Korea, another pissant state that has a gross national product of what? $18? And they treat us like a red-headed step sister after a bad date.

And now you have people like John Boehner, who, let’s face it…has been waiting for his moment to shine, and got it after the State of the Union on Tuesday. Hours after Bobo finished speaking….hell, the limo hadn’t even cooled off from the ride back to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue, Boehner is on the phone with Bebe Netenyahu telling the Israeli Prime Minister that he’d love to have him come and address a joint session of congress…tweeking Obama’s ears in the process (Bobo and Bebe don’t get along real well). Well, that was like kicking the hornet’s nest. Now, Obama says there WILL be a price to pay for snubbing him! Oh, yes…there WILL be a price to pay. He’s going to sign an executive order demanding, no….DEMANDING the Super Bowl be played this coming weekend with under-inflated balls. That’ll show him.

We’ve reached what has become Obama’s bedtime moment. He’s irrelevent in the eyes of the world, in the eyes of Americans, and in the eyes of congress. He’s the only one that thinks he still matters. Now, I’ll be blunt about this, and Rush Limbaugh has talked about it…it’s when he’s most dangerous. As you well know, when Bobo loses, he doubles down. Always. And he’s going to show no regard toward the law of the land in the next two years. It’s going to be a game of “Can You Top This?” between the White House and Congress. Now, assuming princess Hillary isn’t elected, all of Obama’s executive orders can be gone in less than 2 years. But in the meantime, he COULD transform the country. Of course, congress COULD defund whatever he’s issuing executive orders about. And I would be ok with that.

Make no mistake. Barack Obama will go down in history as the “Irrelevent President”. He’s done nothing, he has no legacy to speak of, and history will write him off as another Millard Fillmore or Jimmy Carter. Only they were actually more productive!

Where Loretta Lynch Went Wrong

Look, I understand very clearly that liberals feel that we should just fling open our borders and allow anyone that can get here into the country. Unfortunately, that’s not the law. And unfortunately, the woman that is slated to become the next attorney general in the country doesn’t understand the law.

Loretta Lynch was testifying up on Capitol Hill the other day and was asked whether or not illegal aliens should be allowed to work in this country. She answered that they should. And that, I’m sorry Loretta, is totally wrong. This is where the left veers totally out of control looking for votes.

The major problem I think I have with illegal aliens (and while they are “undocumented” as the left calls them, they are also “illegal”, which is what I will continue to call them), is that they are criminals. They have come to this country illegally. That have snuck in and hid. If you tried to do the same thing to get into their country, you’d be thrown into a Mexican prison and left to rot. By the way, I don’t think they should be thrown in a jail and left to rot. I think they ought to be deported. But neither side in this debate wants that.

The conservatives and business folks out there see illegals as a tremendous group of low-wage workers that won’t bitch because they can’t. They have to remain hidden, and therefore, can be taken advantage of (also not the least bit right). The left wants to grant the citizenship just for showing up, so they can get more votes…the only reason the left feels that way. And you know what that means to illegals?

Nothing is going to get done to hold them legally responsible for the crimes they have committed.

The left and the right both agree that they should stay in this country. The question is just how. The right believes that if you grant amnesty, then it opens the floodgates because there will be amnesty up the road, and you find yourself in the same position in 10 or 15 years. The left believes if you put any stringent conditions on these people, you lose all the hard work they’ve put in picking tomatoes, cleaning houses, etc. for the past 10-15 years. Either way, you aren’t going to find them leaving. Nobody apparently wants that.

I’ve said for years that there is a solution. You make it known (and include in the bill that it’s the last time you’re going to do this). These people can stay here. They need to pay a $50,000 fine which goes straight to paying down the federal debt. They must enter the armed services or some other federal system of employment for a period of five years. After that time, they are free to apply for citizenship provided they’ve done a couple of things. First remained crime free. Second, they have mastered the English language and use it as their first language. Third, they are gainfully employed. Fourth they are not eligible for any federal or state subsidies like food stamps or welfare for a period of 10 years. And fifth, they are not allowed to vote in local, state, or national elections. Also, the bill says, anyone caught sneaking into this country is going to be thrown in jail for a year, living on bread and water in tents in the Arizona or New Mexico desert, and then deported.

Problem solved.

Making Tavel Plans To Visit Cuba? Better Wait A Minute

Hang on a second before you book that trip to Havana for the upcoming tourist season…it may not happen as quickly as you’d like. Oh, it will happen if Obama has anything to say about it, but it still has to have the majority of his “normalized relations” pass muster with congress. And after the opening salvo on the negotiations front, things aren’t looking so good for Bobo and the boys (and girls).

The United States sent assistant secretary of state Roberta Jackson to negotiate with the Cubans on normalizing relations, something Obama is confident will cement his legacy for at least a year or two. Unfortunately, Jackson’s skills as a negotiator appear to be just as strong as her boss’, secretary of state John Kerry. She got nowhere in her initial foray with Cuba’s lead negotiator, Josefina Vidal. Vidal walked out of the talks.

Oops. That wasn’t supposed to happen. Well, Jackson had told Vidal that the US wanted to normalize relations, but we needed some concessions along the way…there had to be some sort of democracy involved. Oh, it didn’t have to be democracy, just had to LOOK like democracy. You know….kind of a head fake. Vidal didn’t take kindly to that. She responded, “One can’t think that in order to improve and normalize relations with the US, Cuba has to give up the principles we believe in.”

That comment was akin to making Jackson take the MS Ice Bucket Challenge…except it was just the bucket of ice water dumped over her head. Cuba basically wants to know where this idea is leading. Is it just to make Obama look good (yes), or is it to advance the struggles of the people of Cuba (not really).

Cuba is in this for one thing and one thing only…to get more of the Yanqui Dinero. Period. If the US wants to send money to Cuba, they’re going to listen. If the US just wants to dictate Cuban policy as part of normalization efforts, Cuba wants no part of it. So in order for Bobo to get his legacy item, he has to cave. Send the money, demand nothing in return. My guess? He’s going to send money, and demand nothing in return. After all, no one ever accused Barack Obama of being a shrewd negotiator!

DeBlasio Joins “Weather Terrorist” Crowd

I don’t know about you, but when I was a kid, it wasn’t such a big deal when it snowed. Maybe we weren’t as big of wimps as New Yorkers apparently are. At least, that’s the impression I take away from Mayor DeBlasio’s “Storm of Death” that failed to materialize the other day.

When I grew up, we always had snow. I remember it snowing all the time. We’d go sledding, we’d have snowball fights, we’d make some money shoveling sidewalks and driveways, and it’d take all day. School was rarely cancelled. We never heard of anything like a “travel ban”. People just dealt with it. Even when I was in college it was that way. I remember (as most people in the Midwest do), “The Blizzard of ’78”. They had FEET of snow all over the state of Ohio. I was a junior at Ohio University in Athens at the time. Athens had no snow removal equipment because it rarely snowed there. I think it was the only state school that didn’t close the campus for the storm…but people still got around.

Hell, my boss at the radio station in Michigan called me and asked if I could drive the 4 1/2 hours it took (in good weather) to come and fill in for the overnight guy who couldn’t make it. He lived 4 blocks from the station. Needless to say, I told him I wasn’t going to risk driving in that storm. But there was no travel ban.

So, when did we become such wimps? When did the thought of a major storm scare the living Jesus out of us? Listening to the good Mayor of New York talk the other day, you would have thought ISIS had just landed at Kennedy and were poised to meet up with Godzilla to take over the city. It was the worst weather emergency in history! It was terrible. If you ventured outside you’d die! And like most big threats like this, it failed to materialize. We used to call the TV meteorologists back home “weather terrorists”. We had one guy that LOVED to predict the end of the world every winter. Man, he was in his element when the storms hit! And usually, he was way off base. Just like DeBlasio was. His 3 feet of snow that he said was going to paralyze New York turned out to a manageable five inches.

Now, there were some parts of central Massachusetts that did get two to three feet of snow. There were parts of Massachusetts and New England where they had some major flooding and yes, homes were damaged. But not in New York.

Message to Mayor DeBlasio: You risk losing credibility when you go on TV and make statements like you made. Best to tell everyone of the “possibility” of major snow and they should stock up, rather than call for the end of the world. When you do that, you look foolish. Just ask our president about looking foolish. He does it all the time!

Must be a Democrat thing?

It WILL Be Hillary As Dems Choice In 2016

I’m going WAAAY out on a limb on this one. Just letting you know ahead of time. But the crystal ball has cleared up just long enough for me to look in and see next year.

Hillary Clinton WILL get the Democratic nomination for president.

I’m not saying she’s going to win. God, I hope not. The country can’t take another inexperienced failure of a person to sit in that office! But forget all the hype of what you’re hearing. Joe Biden is NOT going to run. Elizabeth Warren, if she DID run, would get her ass handed to her. No, the Dems are going to pin their hopes of holding on to the White House on Hillary Clinton. Take that to the bank.

Rasmussen just came out with a poll that showed Hillary with 62% of the Democratic vote in a head-to-head with Elizabeth Warren. 22% went for Warren. 16% were unsure. A whopping 18% of Democrats didn’t even know who Warren was. Put any fears of Hillary not being the nominee aside. There is no one in the that party that has the ability to beat her in the primary. No one. It’s over. Cancel any debates the Dems have scheduled…tell Martin O’Malley, and Bernie Sanders to stay home and roast marshmallows over the fireplace. Save their money. It’s over.

And with that being said, I feel pretty good.

See, the GOP is candidate rich this time around. We really weren’t in 2008 or in 2012. I’ve said all along that Mitt Romney was a weak candidate. John McCain was one of the worst we’ve had in fifty years. He was every bit as bad as Bob Dole. This time around, you’ve got Scott Walker, Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Rand Paul, and Marco Rubio. You didn’t have them last time. Oh, you’ve still got Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum as holdovers. Guys that still want the job but won’t get it. There are a ton of people fighting for it, but there are five or six guys with gubernatorial experience that have the executive leadership experience needed, and the conservative values I think America is looking for. No, it’s not going to be a cakewalk.

But I don’t think Hillary has the ability to win a national election. She’s too unlikable. She has to hide too much of a bad personality for too long. At some point she’s going to start throwing lamps at the audience and swearing at them. And she’s extremely gaffe prone. More so than Joe Biden, and that’s saying something.

No, Hillary doesn’t scare me when she’s up against people like Walker, Bush, Christie or even John Kasich from Ohio (who I don’t think is going to run). She’s got a lot of name recognition and cache…but no ideas, no likability, and no experience. Besides…who wants a president that kills a lot of people while doing her job?
