A Sure Sign Obama’s In Really Big Trouble This Time
Caution: Honest, but strong, language …
Proverbs 12:15a, “The way of a fool is right in his own eyes …”
By Thomas Lifson, American Thinker – “Oh-oh, the Bergdahl deal is blowing up in Obama’s face like an Acme brand cigar lighted up by Wile E. Coyote. It’s gotten so bad that even NBS News and its kid brother MSNBC have had it with the BS. Evan McMurray of Mediaite:
The Obama administration’s chief reasoning for sidestepping congressional notification in the prisoner swap for Army Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl was concern over the captive’s deteriorating health. But after a video — released by the Taliban Wednesday morning but not yet confirmed by the Pentagon — showing Bergdahl’s transfer into American custody, NBC News Chief Pentagon Correspondent Jim Miklaszewski said on Morning Joe Bergdahl appeared on film to be in fine health.
“What struck me first about this video is he appears to be in remarkably good shape, at least physically,” Miklaszewski said. “Don’t know how he is psychologically. He’s clean-shaven. He appears to be somewhat robust, had no trouble walking to the helicopter. He did appear subdued. After five years of captivity, one could only imagine.”
NBC News calling BS on Obama! When have we ever seen that before? Mik going out of his way to drive home the point.
And Susan Rice is treated with near contempt:
“But, you know, the White House over the weekend trotted out now-National Security Adviser Susan Rice one more time to the morning shows and she said the reason that the White House did not give the thirty-day notification before releasing those five GTMO detainee was because of Bergdahl’s health, that if they would have waiting another thirty days, it would have been too late,” Miklaszewski said. “Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) yesterday contested the White House claims, saying she has seen no evidence that Bergdahl’s health was failing.”
And Obama is stuck in Europe. Does he realize how bad it’s getting for him?” Source – American Thinker.
Ouch: Democrat Law Professor Says Barack Obama Is The President Nixon Always Wanted To Be – “Constitutional law professor Jonathan Turley may agree with President Obama on some issues, but as he made clear to Sean Hannity Tuesday night, he is going over-the-top in abusing his executive power and throttling the very idea of governmental checks and balances. He said that in the Bowe Burgdahl case and others, the president has shown that he just ‘would not comply with federal law.’ Turley noted how this is dangerously becoming an ‘imperial presidency, an über-presidency… where the president can act unilaterally.’ And, to Turley, Obama just won’t comply with some of the limits on his authority.” Watch Segment.
Rubio: Barack Obama ‘Believes He’s Become A Monarch Or An Emperor’ And ‘Violated The Law’ – “Florida Republican Senator Marco Rubio savaged President Obama for his failure to notify Congress about the release of five Taliban prisoners from Guantanamo Bay as the law requires, claiming the president ‘believes somehow he’s become a monarch or an emperor.’ … ‘The president has violated the law here,’ the Florida senator asserted. ‘The law is very clear. He must give congressional notification 30 days before any prisoner in Guantanamo is released. He failed to do that.’ ‘Apparently the only person he told was [Senate Majority Leader] Harry Reid,’ Rubio continued. ‘He didn’t even tell the chairwoman of the intelligence committee, a Democrat, Diane Feinstein.'” Watch Segment.
Oy Vey: Democrat Dianne Feinstein: Obama Broke The Law With Bergdahl Swap – “The firestorm surrounding the Obama administration’s decisions to allow five high level Taliban members to go free in exchange for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl without the consent of Congress continues to rage on Capitol Hill. As the details of what many see as a bad deal continue to emerge, with many of Bergdahl’s fellow soldiers expressing anger and outrage over him being welcomed home as a deserter, many lawmakers are questioning the legality of the swap. One of those lawmakers is Democrat Senator Dianne Feinstein, who chairs the Senate Intelligence Committee… ‘It comes to us with some surprise and dismay that the transfers went ahead with no consultation, totally not following law,’ Feinstein told reporters following a closed door meeting.” Read more.
