Now if YOU sought to destabilize a country and fundamentally change it, what better way than to flood it with the worlds downtrodden until that population over whelms the towns and cities and the voting machines. Replacing the strong independent nature of Americans with those used to being dictated to.
Then to cause uprisings of patriotic people not willing to see the America they know and love be changed into a dictatorship that end up in skirmishes and the filling of those fema camps built and setting currently idle.

Media blackouts occur daily here now for many of the protests and actions contrary to this administration and in fact are at record high levels. The truths being hidden for a not so hidden agenda.

Ron is at least occasionally calling the duly-elected President of the United States by his real name instead of some outrageous insulting name. Some improvement.

However, the above quote is so nonsensical it's hard to respond. Seriously. Read it. It's hard to grasp the mind of a person who could believe something like that. Apparently, the humanitarian crisis created by a flood of refugees from Central America is all part of a plot by the president. Wow. The conspiracy theories and hoaxes that far-right, extremist media spin are unbelievable. To think that relatively sane people buy it. Unbelievable.

You just have to move on and hope his kind never take over the country. They will being our great nation to an end.

Way to move those goal posts. Nice work.

Yes the goal posts moved from "you not understanding the goal posts" to "understanding them." Welcome to the world of understanding. Otherwise keep on trucking with your "well see this poll said the confederate flag was cool so why all the upset" opinion.

Soooo Obama says the "border is secure", while he asks for BILLIONS to house feed and take care of a new storm surge if ILLEGAL invaders into this country.

If the border is so insecure how are the feds catching all these kids? Shouldn't they just be silently coming in, attending schools for free while living on welfare and then taking our jobs and voting for Democrats without citizenship?

And should we not feed/house them while we figure out how to get them home? Is your answer actually to just kick them into the desert with guns pointed at them and tell them to start walking? That is your grand vision for American moral excellence?

 What did they say when they asked Ron Paul about saving someone who is uninsured.... "Let'em Die!! (with zeal!)"? I'm afraid they would just kick them out....

Representative Gohmert is outraged that Obama is letting hundreds of thousands of rapists into the country each year instead of defending our clean, white women.

http://www.rawstory.com/rs/2014/07/16/louie-gohmert-obama-wont-defend-women-from-hundreds-of-thousands-of-immigrant-rapists/

“Well, we know thousands,” Gohmert opined. “And we know people are coming in by the hundreds of thousands illegally. And this administration wants to talk about other people having a war on women when they will not defend the women that are being sexually assaulted by illegally aliens in this country!”

From Forbes
Want to know what’s happening with Obamacare? Good luck finding out. The White House recently adopted a new approach for updating Americans on the country’s most consequential law. I call it the “needle in a haystack” method: Bury the announcement in hundreds of pages of regulations and hope no one finds it.

The White House tried a test run several weeks ago. Hidden in the midst of a 436 page regulatory update, and written in pure bureaucratese, the Department of Health and Human Services asked that insurance companies limit the looming premium increases for 2015 health plans. But don’t worry, HHS hinted: we’ll bail you out on the taxpayer’s dime if you lose money.

No wonder there wasn’t a press release. The White House is playing politics with Americans’ health care—and they’re bribing health insurance companies to play along.

The administration’s intention is clear: Salvage the 2014 midterm elections. Typically, insurance companies release their premium rates between summer and early fall—i.e., right before voters cast their ballots in November. If premiums skyrocket—which looks increasingly likely—then voters won’t look too kindly on Senators and Representatives who voted for Obamacare and created this problem.

From Pew Research

President Obama gets very low ratings for his handling of the issue. Just 28% of the public approves of the way he is handling the surge of children from Central America, while twice as many (56%) disapprove. That is one of the lowest ratings for his handling of any issue since he became president.

Jill Abrahamson, former NYT editor has been trashing Obama, lately.

Aside from her unceremonious firing, former New York Times executive editor Jill Abramson is perhaps best known for her assertion that the Obama administration is the most secretive of any she has covered, and in 22 years in Washington, that covers a lot of White Houses. She got plenty of grief from President Obama’s top aides in the aftermath, and while other journalists made the same observation, Abramson’s words carried weight, coming as they did from the prestigious newspaper’s first female top editor...

It’s a question of balancing competing interests, the government’s claims versus the public’s right to know. “When someone says, ‘You’ll have blood on your hands,’ you pause and take it very seriously,” she said, explaining how her views evolved from the immediate aftermath of 9/11, when she and other key media figures were on a conference call with Bush press secretary Ari Fleischer and at his request agreed with apparently no dissent not to publish anything about the sources or methods the intelligence community was using in the aftermath of the attacks. “It was an easy commitment to make,” she said. “And for a few years, we didn’t publish anything that would break that agreement.”

But as the war soured and stories emerged about the abuses at Abu Ghraib prison, the press became more aggressive, and in 2005, the Times published a blockbuster story about warrantless wiretapping, which is illegal. The Times had held the story for a year, heeding the administration, which called the program “the crown jewel in our country’s arsenal.” President Bush personally asked that the story not be published, “which is rare,” Abramson said. “It’s usually not the president.”

For all that, Abramson notes that Bush did not launch a criminal investigation to find the source of the Times story. “Obama is very different,” she said, pointing out that he has ordered eight criminal investigations into whistleblowers, twice the number of all previous presidents combined, and a year ago secretly subpoenaed the phone and email records of reporters at Fox News and the Associated Press.

During the open enrollment period (October 1, 2013 to April 15, 2014) for the state and federal health care exchanges, each staff member and volunteer worked with an average of 1.8 people per day, according to a survey of assister programs released by the Kaiser Family Foundation.

Impressive.
