White House Ignores Question About Obama Absence

President Barack Obama did not attend Sunday’s massive march in Paris to honor the victims of last week’s terror attacks, and the White House is not explaining his absence.

Asked directly about Obama’s absence among dozens of other world leaders, a White House spokeswoman only addressed a question about Attorney General Eric Holder.

World leaders linked arms and marched together at a unity rally that numbered more than 3.7 million people. Among the attendees were Angela Merkel of Germany, U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron, King Abdallah of Jordan and the brother of the Emir of Qatar, marching with French President Francois Hollande. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas attended, walking feet away from each other. All told, some 50 world leaders attended.

TheBlaze asked the White House press office to comment on why Obama did not participate in the rally. In a follow up question, TheBlaze asked if Holder — who went to Paris for an anti-terrorism summit — is part of the march.

The White House spokesperson responded,”We’d refer you to DOJ for questions about the AG’s schedule,” in an email.

TheBlaze asked again about Obama’s absence. The White House did not immediately respond.

The New York Times reported at 1:53 p.m. that Holder had to return to Washington Sunday. The United States was represented in the march by Ambassador Jane Hartley. TheBlaze contacted the Justice Department, which did not immediately respond.

Obama cheers his ‘rescue’ of car industry … at closed plant!

obama-ford

NEW YORK – On a day in which the international news cycle was dominated by the Islamic terrorist attack on the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo in Paris, President Obama traveled to Wayne, Michigan, to deliver a pre-arranged speech celebrating his rescue of the U.S. auto industry.

Ironically, the Ford Assembly Plant that Obama visited is closed temporarily this week because of lack of demand for the small cars and hybrids the plant produces, with 2014 sales of the Ford Focus down 6 percent and the C-Max hybrid down 22 percent.

In his tour of the Ford plant, Obama sat for a minute in a red Mustang and then emerged to declare “this is an American car, right here, this Mustang. That’s beautiful.”

In his speech to an enthusiastic crowd at the assembly plant, Obama asserted America’s “resurgence is real – don’t let anybody tell you otherwise,” echoing his 2012 campaign mantra that “Osama Bin Laden is dead, but General Motors is alive and well.”

“Last year, 2014, was the strongest year for job growth since the 1990s,” Obama said. “We’ve now had a 57-month streak of private sector job creation. We’ve created nearly 11 million new jobs. That’s the longest stretch in our history of private sector, uninterrupted job creation.”

In a speech regarded as a warm-up for the economic-success narrative Obama is expected to tout during his upcoming State of the Union speech, he took credit for what he claimed is a strong and continuing recovery.

“Since 2010, we, America, have put more people back to work than Europe, Japan and every other advanced economy combined,” Obama claimed. “After a decade of decline, American manufacturing is in its best stretch of job growth since the 1990s. Here in Michigan, manufacturers have created more than 100,000 jobs, helping to cut your unemployment rate in half.”

Obama, in his speech, neglected to note Ford did not join GM and Chrysler in the bankruptcy proceedings his administration managed in 2009, though Ford did benefit from a $5.9 billion low-cost government loan used to overhaul its factories and to re-engineer more fuel-efficient technology.

Midterm Shockwave: Obama Throws Senate Democrats Under the Bus

obama-kissing-imaginary-hubcap-ap

President Barack Obama sent shockwaves through Senate races during a Monday radio interview with Rev. Al Sharpton wherein the president said Senate Democrats are merely pretending to distance themselves from an Obama agenda they wholeheartedly embrace.

“Some of the candidates there–it is difficult for them to have me in the state because the Republicans will use that to try to fan Republican turnout. The bottom line is though, these are all folks who vote with me, they have supported my agenda in Congress.”

Obama continued, “These are folks who are strong allies and supporters of me, and I tell them, ‘You know what, do what you need to do to win.'”

Obama Aunt Zeituni Onyango Who Stayed in U.S. Illegally Dies at 61

BOSTON (AP) — An aunt of President Barack Obama who was denied asylum in the U.S. but stayed illegally for years has died in Massachusetts. Zeituni Onyango (zay-TOO’-nee ohn-YAHN’-goh) was 61.

Cleveland attorney Margaret Wong represented Onyango in her immigration case. She says Onyango died Tuesday in a Boston rehabilitation center. She says Onyango was being treated for cancer and respiratory problems.

Onyango moved to the U.S. from Kenya in 2000 and was denied asylum by an immigration judge in 2004. She remained in the country illegally, living in Boston public housing. Her immigration status was reported by The Associated Press days before Obama’s election in 2008.

Onyango was a half-sister of Obama’s late father. She was granted asylum in 2010 by a judge who said she could be in danger if she returned to Kenya because of her relationship with Obama.

3 Ways Obama Has Left

Top 3 Ways Obama Has Left The World In Ruins

Since taking office, Barack Obama and his foreign policy team have neglected numerous global problems and fixated, instead, on the crescent of countries where Asia, Europe, and Africa collide.

At this point, the results have been nothing short of disastrous. From the Red Sea to the Persian Gulf, there’s barely a country in the region that hasn’t withered under Obama’s touch. Thanks to his handiwork, the United States is weaker than ever… and an already-fragile region is bordering on chaos.

Of course, Obama doesn’t deserve all of the credit. His Secretary of State, John Kerry, has amassed an impressive track record of his own.

For example, Kerry’s single-minded obsession with the Israeli versus Palestinian conflict has yet to provide any results. In fact, this past week, Kerry’s dream of either a successful Palestinian state or a two-state solution officially died.

In his arrogance, he believed he could solve the epic struggle for the land of Judea that has raged on since at least 1000 B.C. In the end, though, John Kerry joins a long list of diplomats who’ve been unable to solve this conflict.

Kerry was downbeat and depressed as he told the AP about the failure: “They say they want to continue. But we are not going to sit there indefinitely. This is not an open-ended effort. It’s reality check time.”

The Palestinian official, Yasser Abed Rabbo, countered to AFP: “Israel has a habit of evading agreements and conventions it has signed… That is why conditions for future negotiations must change radically.”

Not to be outdone, Israeli Justice Minister Tzipi Livni denounced Palestinian attempts to join numerous UN conventions and treaties ahead of any comprehensive agreement. He said Palestine “has breached its obligations by applying to the United Nations,” and that “if they want a state, they need to understand that it will only be established on the negotiating table.”

And That’s Just the Beginning…

Moving on, let’s take a look at Kerry and Obama’s efforts to end the Syrian civil war. First, Obama drew a red line, threatening to take out Bashar al-Assad if the dictator used chemical weapons. Assad then cleverly used Russia’s protection to thwart Obama’s plans, making Obama look incredibly weak.

On the ground, Syria has become a ruin of dead civilians, refugee camps, and the sort of intense ethnic bitterness that leads to prolonged fighting.

What’s more, Russia has poured millions of dollars’ worth of weapons into Syria, and the civil war is now at a stalemate. The negotiations for a political resolution have quietly died, and Obama and his team look powerless to achieve any of their goals.

Across the Persian Gulf, Obama’s diplomatic efforts in Iran have done no better. Today, Iran isn’t any closer to giving up its nuclear weapons program than it was before the United States compromised with the radical Shia government.

Obama gave up the leverage of economic sanctions and gained no concession in return. Unfortunately, Iran now seems destined to provoke a wider war or gain entrance to the club of nations with nuclear weapons. The Iranian nuclear program has also greatly undermined regional stability.

That’s part of the reason the Saudi leadership is seeking a new partner to guarantee its safety. At this point, China and Russia are both potential patrons for the Arab kingdom.

Similarly, Egypt is looking for new friends after U.S. agreements with the Muslim Brotherhood nearly turned the country into an Islamic revolutionary republic. And let’s not forget Libya, which is slowly making the transition to a radicalized, Sharia-governed state.

Everywhere you look, Barack Obama’s attempts at peace and stability are in shambles. The people on the ground are poorer, the countries are less safe, and human rights abuses have skyrocketed.

The moderates in the Arab world need to pray for a more realistic leadership in the United States before the entire region descends into chaos.

Obama’s Latest Selfie Proves He’s a Rube

Obama got scammed. This moron of presidential proportions thinks he can negotiate at the “world” level, when he doesn’t even realize when he’s being played by a not so dumb athlete.

Right after Obama finished killing a few more jobs, he had a few friends over for one of his famous parties. While yucking it up with the Boston Red Sox, Obama was asked by David Ortiz to pose for a selfie. Not very presidential, but Obama had already done it once with a Scandinavian beauty. Despite the rumors of Obama being on the downlow, Ortiz was likely deemed safe by Michelle, since Ortiz has a Spanish surname, and he’s really dark, aka not the “light-skin with no Negro dialect’s” type.

Runway clear. Selfie complete.

However, what Obama didn’t know is that he allowed the office of the president (yes, Obama himself) to get played by a merchandising pro. As reported in this story in Boston Globe…

Anyway, in fairly short order we learned the whole selfie thing was a scam, Ortiz doing the bidding of the smartphone company that he endorses. Right there in this long-accepted practice of political exploitation, Big Papi pulled a “Gotcha!’’ of epic proportions on the smiling Obama. Boy, if only the Sox DH thought ahead just another half-step and stuck one of those trick flowers in his lapel to douse the commander in chief with an unexpected stream of water.

Ortiz, the Designated Huckster, turned Obama into the Designated Hayseed. I look at the selfie now, Huckster on the left and Hayseed on the right, and can’t believe Ortiz was so brazen, Obama so gullible.

We know Ortiz doesn’t need the money. He just signed a contract extension for another boatload of dough. So now he’s pranking the Prez for a few extra bucks? Really, it can’t be that hard to stretch $15 million a year, even in this challenged economy.

Obama may be Mr. Cool to the ignorant population of America, however the world watches his moronic actions, and takes note.

Obama Said He Will “Get To The Bottom” Of New Fort Hood Shooting Like Benghazi

(Weasel Zippers) — Obama gave a statement on the Fort Hood shooting. In the statement he said he “would get to the bottom of the shooting”. Jester, our anti-Jihadi cyber hero friend, encapsulates what many feel about that promise.

  1. Obama on Ft. Hood: “I want to just assure all of us we are going to get to the bottom of exactly what happened.” (Like Benghazi you mean?)

    .From the President who called the first Fort Hood shooting, “workplace violence”, which meant that he could continue his fiction that somehow he had terrorism “on the defeat”(whatever that ever meant). Also in so classing the terroristic attack, he denied proper benefits to the victims and their families. For this alone, he justifiably should be excoriated.

“Impeach Obama” Organization Just Getting Started

Overpasses for America, a group founded last year as a vehicle to drive support for Obama’s impeachment, is gearing up for activism across a much wider scope. As last month ended, protesters engaged in a series of events across the nation calling attention to the many scandals surrounding this administration.

The 11th such event since its founding, the group called its first major protest of 2014 “Spring Break Out.”

Another event, dubbed the “Patriots Day Patriot Wave” is set for later this month. Next month, however, a number of other like-minded advocates are joining the movement for a much more substantial demonstration in the nation’s capital.

Millions have already expressed a desire to take part in this peaceful call for Obama’s ouster – along with the removal of several federal legislators – during the event.

Organizers realize not every patriot who wishes to become involved will be able to make the trip to Washington, D.C., so local events are also encouraged. A press release offers additional details about upcoming plans:

On March 28th and 29th, 2014, Overpasses For America (formerly named Overpasses for Obama’s Impeachment) stepped out to the overpasses and street corners of America for their 11th national protest.

Patriot Wave 11, dubbed by the group as Spring Break Out, was the first major event of 2014; and thousands of Overpasses members across America participated in the protests.

The group, founded in June 2013, is openly calling for the removal of Mr. Obama from the White House for many reasons, among them his ineligibility for office, crimes committed during his tenure in the White House, and multiple violations of the Constitution.

Signs and banners carried during the rallies cite things such as Benghazi, Extortion 17, ObamaCare, the fake birth certificate, voter fraud, and much more.

Overpasses For America Founder James Neighbors states the need for Obama’s removal from office extends well beyond his criminal actions, that Mr Obama and his collaborators must be made an example of for future generations of Americans, and as a warning to future politicians that the American people are awake (and are none too pleased with politics as usual across the nation.)

The movement has teamed up with Colonel Harry Riley and Operation American Spring, and members are carrying signs and banners about the Washington DC event that begins on May 16th. Organizers for OAS (Operation American Spring) state that over 5 million people have made commitments to be in Washington for the peaceful demand that Obama and many members of Congress step down from their positions, as well as the return to a Constitution-based government in our nation’s capitol.

Neighbors also states that the Overpasses movement is highly encouraging members to find their way to Washington DC for American Spring. He also emphasized that many members of the movement are in dire financial straits due to the failing economy, and those members will be rallying in their area so the nation is aware of the events occurring in Washington DC.

Neighbors continued by saying that those who will be in Washington for American Spring expect a media blackout, as is common by the mainstream media when disgruntled Americans protest to express their discontent; and the group believes the protesters across the nation will raise enough questions by the public to media outlets that they will either report the event, or further lose trust of viewers and readers.

On April 19th, 2014, Overpasses For America will hold their 12th national event, the Patriots Day Patriot Wave, with many more planned for the entire year.
