White House had a fence-jumper recently, Obama not at home. Playing golf?
Looks like the White House has more security than the consulate in Benghazi where they had a severally dangerous atmosphere. With the breach of security by a fence jumper, if the situation turned critical, would the Secret Service have gotten a “STAND-DOWN” order had they needed to take action and called for help? I doubt it, the National Guard, Army and anyone in uniform would have shown up with plenty of weapons.
Our embassies and consulates everywhere in the world deserve the same protection/security as we give to the White House. Every official should be treated with the same respect that the president expects.
Arrogance of power – most politicians possess it on all levels, but lets focus on elected and appointed federal officials. We’ll use Hillary Clinton as the example. No she isn’t an office holder now, and lets pray it stays that way…..but she has been and wants your White House again.
At Dictionary.com, ” arrogance of power: presumption on the part of a nation that its power gives it the right to intervene in the affairs of less powerful nations. ” This definition as you read, applies to a nation, and was first described by the late Senator J. William Fulbright during the Vietnam War. Arrogance of power can be an attitude of one nation over another, much like an attitude within an individual.
“arrogance of power” — the sense that because one believes that one has superior resources, one can override opposition and ignore criticism. … – Barack Obama come to mind? We’ll get back to Hillary.
Merriam‑Webster defines “arrogance of power” as: “an insulting way of thinking or behaving that comes from believing that you are better, smarter, or more important than other people … “. There she is, Hillary! Didn’t take long to find her. I chose Hillary, because she is the Poster Child of arrogance. Don’t believe me, ask the Secret Service…..’If you want to remain on this detail, get your f***ing ass over here and grab those bags!’ Hillary has quite the potty mouth.
Here is another arrogant quote from the power thirsty Hillary Clinton. “We just can’t trust the American people to make those types of choices…. Government has to make those choices for people” That was regarding healthcare. (From the book “I’ve Always Been A Yankee Fan” by Thomas D. Kuiper, p. 20 – Hillary to Rep. Dennis Hastert in 1993 discussing her expensive, disastrous taxpayer-funded health care plan) Read more at http://www.snopes.com/politics/clintons/hildabeast.asp#MTTJqSH8h0peXDT4.99
A quote from Hillary’s resignation good-bye speech on Feb. 2, 2013: “I am glad to have contributed to making the world safer and fairer.” This of course was following the Benghazi attack. It doesn’t get anymore arrogant than that. This, proof that Hillary Clinton is out of touch. She was in over her head.
Hillary has many supporters within the Democratic Party, leftists with the mainstream media will swarm at her feet. They will feed her ego and arrogance. One characteristic that always escapes those that seek more power……..integrity. Integrity and arrogance are opponents.
It seems like every day or every other day your President is asking Congress for funds, major big league funds; none of which is being used here in the United States. I didn’t know our finances were spilling out of the money bags begging to be taken for all of Obama’s favorite causes. Forgive me, I thought we had a deficit? Did China loan us their banks again?
Obama wants 3.8 billion to help the innocent children at the border. No, this doesn’t count as putting the money to good use for Americans, it’s to assist the illegal immigrants. I agree, something must be done to control the flow, how about turning their little butts back around, tell them thank you for your interest in the U.S. but we don’t have any openings right now. We’re sorry, but our kids can’t find jobs now either and many can’t get the free health care Obama would give away to you.
3.8 billion dollars King Barry is asking for, weeks after the accumulation of illegal aliens (Yes Barack I said aliens) mount, which is a problem he helped create. So, he can put us further down the road of destruction. The 500 million dollars for Syrian rebels, oh yeah the middle east has always been a good investment.
Let me ask you, how are your highways and bridges looking these days, need of repair? Your health insurance premium…….going up aren’t they and for less benefits? When was the last time you felt like your federal tax dollars actually benefited us?
Obama is asking for funds we do not have, and why not, not his money. This is the White House family that will ask for your money to help some lost cause and then go on an African Safari at your expense. Aren’t you in the least bit tired of this crap?
The real kicker is, Congress plays his game, Monopoly, only we’re the ones going broke. Obama and his gang should go to jail, go directly to jail.
Below is a quote from First Lady Michelle Obama from a speech to attendees at a naturalization ceremony at the National Archives in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
“It’s amazing that just a few feet from here where I’m standing are the signatures of the 56 Founders who put their names on a Declaration that changed the course of history,” she said during her speech, referring to the Declaration of Independence. “And like the 50 of you, none of them were born American – they became American.”
Here is a list of some of the most recognizable names of our founders and where they were born:
Thomas Jefferson: Shadwell, VA John Adams: Quincy, MA Benjamin Franklin: Boston, MA James Madison: Port Conway, VA George Washington: Westmoreland County, VA John Jay: New York City, NY
One would think that prior to giving a speech at such a ceremony you would check the facts. Does the First Lady not have a speech writer or someone to proofread her speeches? Or is she too arrogant to use such a service? She could have at least googled the information. I did for the birth places mentioned above, it takes little time and effort.
This is another embarrassment from the White House, it’s inexcusable. What did those receiving citizenship that day think? They probably are more knowledgeable of our history than THE FIRST LADY. We expect more from our first lady.
I’m 61 years young. I’ve lived through many presidents and their administrations, each with their own history of controversy and scandal. I have never in my life seen a trail of trash left behind a commander-in-chief and His chosen cabinet time after time like we have today.
If you google “The Obama controversies” Wikipedia has a list of 46. Now that is Wikipedia, I understand other documented lists may have more or less. In fairness to Wikipedia, they do not just throw out a number, they name or describe each.
A behavior or event does not have to be true to be controversial, suspicion or an accusation will suffice, as will just being in strong disagreement over what is right. However – where there is smoke, there is fire, and our White House is burning.
Some of the decisions and lack of action at other times are very serious and pose a threat to our national security. Obama, Hillary, John Kerry and the rest of the crew of course would beg to differ or just say, “What does it matter.”
We have a president in His final term, he seems to have gotten more reckless, less caring, dangerously out of control, and more flexible as he told Putin. Obama is on a fast pace, with gaffes, insane decisions (the 5 terrorists give away) and actions that are unlawful. He shows no signs of slowing down.
Arrogance of power equals tyranny. His vision is a new world order with Him on the throne. Obama does not have the best interest of our nation at heart, He never did.
