Sodomite who masturbates in men's room to succeed disgraced San Diego mayor?

by Dr. Eowyn

Is San Diego the Gomorrah to San Francisco's Sodom?

If we use San Diego's city government officials as a yardstick, the answer to that question sure looks to be "Yes."

Bob-FilnerDisgraced mayor Bob Filner

First, the city's reptilian yellow-toothed Democrat mayor Bob Filner, age 70, came under fire for sexually harassing women -- grabbing and kissing a constituent, "jamming his tongue" down the throat and groping under the bra of a campaign volunteer, and grabbing the buttocks and touching the breasts of a staffer. Altogether, 20 women have come forth claiming to be Filner's victims, including 67-year-old great grandmother Peggy Shannon.

Penny ShannonPeggy Shannon, 67, is one of Filner's victims.

After weeks of refusing to resign, last Friday, August 23, 2013, Filner FINALLY agreed to leave his mayoral post at the end of the month, after he'd successfully negotiated a deal for the city to pay his legal fees and any monetary settlements he has to give his accusers. The agreement is expected to cost the city of San Diego several hundred thousand dollars, according to the Los Angeles Times.

The latest from San Diego:

A candidate to succeed Filner as mayor, Republican City Councilman Carl DeMaio, 38, is a homosexual who is known for masturbating in public men's room.

Allegations: Republican Carl DeMaio, 38, has been accused of leaving meetings and masturbating in restrooms at work caught on multiple occasions. The ex-councilman is thought to be considering a run for San Diego mayor

 San Diego City Councilman Carl DeMaio

Rex Dalton reports for Voice of OC (Orange County), Aug. 22, 2013, that Filner and DeMaio were opponents in San Diego's mayoral election last fall, who share a politically explosive Achilles heel: alleged inappropriate sexual behavior that is an open secret among some.

In the case of DeMaio, he is said to leave the San Diego City Council dais during meetings to masturbate in a men's room — events known by elected officials and suspected by members of the media.

Dalton writes:

In the months before last November's mayoral election, Ben Hueso, the City Council's president in 2009 and now a state senator, acknowledged to this reporter that he witnessed DeMaio engaging in the practice twice. Hueso, now a Democratic state senator, and others suspected DeMaio's alleged inappropriate activity was more frequent.

Describing the scene that spring when he walked in on DeMaio, who was in front of a urinal with his pants down, Hueso said: "DeMaio was masturbating. He jumped, caught by surprise. He jumped to the sink … saying 'I'm sorry, I'm sorry' about six times. Then washed his hands, darted out."

Hueso again confirmed this account last week.

San Diego City Councilwoman Marti Emerald confirmed Hueso's account, saying she saw him in the hallway immediately after the encounter with DeMaio.

"Ben was in a state of shock, face red, eyes bulging," recalled Emerald recently. "I said: 'You look like you just saw the devil?' He said: 'DeMaio is masturbating in the middle of the room.' " Another witness to the aftermath supported Emerald's account.

Emerald told the Voice of OC that "everyone" at the council knew of the rumors. Others say that tales of DeMaio's public masturbation became a joke at San Diego City Hall.

Shock? Democrat Ben Hueso, San Diego council president at the time, claims he twice walked in on DeMaio masturbatingState Senator Ben Hueso

The openly gay DeMaio is currently running for Congress but is reportedly considering running for the now-vacant mayoral post. As reported by CBS, he has discussed a mayoral campaign with supporters and community leaders who want him to run.

DeMaio's spokesman Dave McCulloch categorically denies that any such behavior took place, calling the accusations "absurd and ludicrous" -- the dirty tactics of political opponents. Another DeMaio spokesman Jason Roe told The Daily Caller: "There is no other way to respond to this than to call it what it is: a lie. If Ben Hueso started this rumor, he embarrasses himself and our great city. This is exactly the kind of gutter politics that has led to the dysfunction of our political system in San Diego and Washington, D.C."

Meanwhile, a spokeswoman for Hueso's spokeswoman says he stands by his testimony to Voice of OC.

Fwd: Saudis offer Russia secret oil deal if it drops Syria

Saudis offer Russia secret oil deal if it drops Syria

Saudi Arabia has secretly offered Russian a sweeping deal to control the global oil market and safeguard Russia's gas contracts, if the Kremlin backs away from the Assad regime in Syria.

OPEC raised production by 400,000 barrels per day to 29.7m Photo: AP

By Ambrose Evans-Pritchard

8:30PM BST 26 Aug 2013

The revelations come amid high tension in the Middle East, with US, British, and French warship poised for missile strikes in Syria. Iran has threatened to retaliate.

The strategic jitters pushed Brent crude prices to a five-month high of $112 a barrel. "We are only one incident away from a serious oil spike. The market is a lot tighter than people think," said Chris Skrebowski, editor of Petroleum Review.

Leaked transcripts of a closed-door meeting between Russia's Vladimir Putin and Saudi Prince Bandar bin Sultan shed an extraordinary light on the hard-nosed Realpolitik of the two sides.

Prince Bandar, head of Saudi intelligence, allegedly confronted the Kremlin with a mix of inducements and threats in a bid to break the deadlock over Syria. "Let us examine how to put together a unified Russian-Saudi strategy on the subject of oil. The aim is to agree on the price of oil and production quantities that keep the price stable in global oil markets," he said at the four-hour meeting with Mr Putin. They met at Mr Putin's dacha outside Moscow three weeks ago.

"We understand Russia's great interest in the oil and gas in the Mediterranean from Israel to Cyprus. And we understand the importance of the Russian gas pipeline to Europe. We are not interested in competing with that. We can cooperate in this area," he said, purporting to speak with the full backing of the US.

The talks appear to offer an alliance between the OPEC cartel and Russia, which together produce over 40m barrels a day of oil, 45pc of global output. Such a move would alter the strategic landscape.

The details of the talks were first leaked to the Russian press. A more detailed version has since appeared in the Lebanese newspaper As-Safir, which has Hezbollah links and is hostile to the Saudis.

As-Safir said Prince Bandar pledged to safeguard Russia's naval base in Syria if the Assad regime is toppled, but he also hinted at Chechen terrorist attacks on Russia's Winter Olympics in Sochi if there is no accord. "I can give you a guarantee to protect the Winter Olympics next year. The Chechen groups that threaten the security of the games are controlled by us," he allegedly said.

Prince Bandar went on to say that Chechens operating in Syria were a pressure tool that could be switched on an off. "These groups do not scare us. We use them in the face of the Syrian regime but they will have no role in Syria's political future."

President Putin has long been pushing for a global gas cartel, issuing the `Moscow Declaration' last to month "defend suppliers and resist unfair pressure". This would entail beefing up the Gas Exporting Countries Forum (GECF), a talking shop.

Mr Skrebowski said it is unclear what the Saudis can really offer the Russians on gas, beyond using leverage over Qatar and others to cut output of liquefied natural gas (LGN). "The Qataris are not going to obey Saudi orders," he said.

Saudi Arabia could help boost oil prices by restricting its own supply. This would be a shot in the arm for Russia, which is near recession and relies on an oil price near $100 to fund the budget.

But it would be a dangerous strategy for the Saudis if it pushed prices to levels that endangered the world's fragile economic recovery. Crude oil stocks in the US have already fallen sharply this year. Goldman Sachs said the "surplus cushion" in global stocks built up since 2008 has been completely eliminated.

Mr Skrebowski said trouble is brewing in a string of key supply states. "Libya is reverting to war lordism. Nigerian is drifting into a bandit state with steady loss of output. And Iraq is going back to the sort of Sunni-Shia civil war we saw in 2006-2007," he said.

The Putin-Bandar meeting was stormy, replete with warnings of a "dramatic turn" in Syria. Mr Putin was unmoved by the Saudi offer, though western pressure has escalated since then. "Our stance on Assad will never change. We believe that the Syrian regime is the best speaker on behalf of the Syrian people, and not those liver eaters," he said, referring to footage showing a Jihadist rebel eating the heart and liver of a Syrian soldier.

Prince Bandar in turn warned that there can be "no escape from the military option" if Russia declines the olive branch. Events are unfolding exactly as he foretold.

Russia, Iran Warn of 'Devastating' Consequences if the West Attacks Syria

August 25, 2013 - 7:50 PM

(CNSNews.com) – As United Nations inspectors in Damascus prepare to visit the site Monday of an alleged chemical weapons attack, Russia warned the United States not to repeat what it called "past mistakes" by bypassing the U.N. and taking military action against the Assad regime.

Iran, Syria's other key ally, also warned of "dire consequences for the White House" should the U.S. act against Syria.

The warnings came as Obama administration officials said there was "very little doubt" that President Bashar Assad's regime had employed a chemical weapon last Wednesday, citing the reported number of victims and symptoms, and witness accounts.

President Obama met with senior security staff and U.S. naval forces in the Mediterranean were reportedly ordered to move closer to Syria.

After Obama discussed the situation by phone with British Prime Minister David Cameron, Downing Street said the two had "reiterated that significant use of chemical weapons would merit a serious response from the international community and both have tasked officials to examine all the options. They agreed that it is vital that the world upholds the prohibition on the use of chemical weapons and deters further outrages."

On Sunday Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel told reporters traveling with him in Asia that the Pentagon was "prepared to exercise whatever option" Obama decides to employ.

Asked about possible risks entailed in even limited military action, Hagel said any action or inaction had risks and consequences, and these were being assessed.

Factors being taken into account included "the facts, what our intelligence assessment produces, law, legal issues [and] international support," he said.

The international charity Medecins Sans Frontieres reported that within a few hours last Wednesday three clinics they support had been faced with 3,600 patients needing treatment for "neurotoxic symptoms," and that 355 people had died.

The regime denied opposition allegations that it was responsible for the incident, which occurred almost exactly one year to the day since Obama said the use of chemical weapons in the Syrian conflict would be "a red line" that would "change my equation."

The regime says it is the opposition – a disparate collection of groups ranging from units of defected soldiers to al-Qaeda-affiliated jihadists – that used chemical weapons in last week's incident and earlier ones.

After several days of vacillating the regime agreed on Sunday that a U.N. team already in Syria on a pre-arranged mission could visit the location of the alleged attack, near Damascus.

Some Western leaders suspect that the delay may have been part of an attempted cover-up.

During a phone conversation Cameron and French President Francois Hollande agreed that failure to grant the inspectors immediate access "was extremely worrying and demonstrated that the regime was hiding the facts and evidence.

"We should be realistic about what they [the inspectors] will be able to achieve and that, following continued shelling in recent days, any hard evidence is likely to have been corrupted," Cameron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel agreed in a separate phone conversation Sunday.

In a statement, the Russian foreign ministry repeated its earlier suggestions that the use of chemical agents in Syria could have been a "provocation" staged by the anti-Assad rebels.

"All of this makes one recall the events that happened 10 years ago, when, using false information about Iraqis having weapons of mass destructions, the U.S. bypassed the United Nations and started a scheme whose consequences are well known to everyone," it said.

"Once again we call not to repeat past mistakes, not to allow actions that contradict international law," the statement added.

"Any unilateral military action bypassing the United Nations will ... lead to further escalation and will affect the already explosive situation in the Middle East in the most devastating way."

'Ball of fire'

Russia insists that all decisions must go through the U.N. Security Council, where it and China have used their veto power three times to kill resolutions on Syria during the civil war that erupted two and a half years ago.

Last week the divided Security Council was not even able to agree on a mildly condemnatory statement in response to the alleged chemical attack.

The chances of the council finding agreement on a meaningful Syria resolution are slim.

In March 2011 the council passed a resolution authorizing a no-fly zone in Libya and "all necessary measures" short of foreign occupation to protect civilians from Muammar Gaddafi's forces. Russia contends to this day that the subsequent NATO operation exceeded the mandate, and has repeatedly cited the Libya case when Syria is discussed.

Russia and the U.S. have been trying for months to get the regime and rebels to attend an international conference in Geneva to map out a political transition for Syria.

While Russia has been Assad's main defender in the international community, Iran has been his closest ally on the ground, providing weaponry and troops to bolster the Syrian forces.

The deputy chief of staff for the Iranian army, Brigadier General Massoud Jazayeri, on Sunday borrowed Obama's "red line" terminology in his warning for the U.S. not to intervene in Syria.

"The U.S. knows Syria's red line and crossing over this line will have dire consequences for the White House," the Fars news agency quoted him as saying.

Jazayeri attributed recent developments to the Assad regime's military successes against the opposition rebels, which he described as accomplices of the U.S. and "Zionist regime."

"Those who add fuel to this fire will not be immune from the nations' revenge," he added.

Syria's information minister, Omran al-Zoubi, told a Lebanese television station that any U.S. intervention would have implications for the entire region.

"The basic repercussion would be a ball of fire that would burn not only Syria but the whole Middle East," he warned.

With Syria Decision Possibly Looming, Defense Chiefs Meet in Jordan

August 26, 2013 - 4:12 AM

Syria reached an agreement with the United Nations on Sunday to allow a U.N. team of experts to visit the site of alleged chemical weapons attacks last week outside Damascus, state media said. (AP Photo/Hassan Ammar)

(CNSNews.com) – A meeting currently underway in Jordan of Western and Arab defense chiefs was scheduled several months ago, but last week's alleged chemical weapons attack in Syria's capital just over 100 miles away is expected to dominate the agenda.

The gathering in Amman is co-chaired by U.S. Army Gen. Martin Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, who is accompanied by U.S. Central Command head Gen. Lloyd Austin. According to Jordanian state media others taking part are defense chiefs from Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy, Turkey, Saudi Arabia, Qatar and the host nation.

Over the past month Dempsey has taken flak from some congressional critics for offering assessments of possible military options for Syria which they viewed as overly negative, but the discussion has shifted dramatically following last Wednesday's incident near Damascus.

The suspected use by the Assad regime of an outlawed chemical agent that killed hundreds of people has prompted a new level of rhetoric by Western leaders, who warn that a "firm" and "serious' response is now required. (Syrian President Bashar Assad said in an interview published Monday that his troops did not use chemical weapons in an attack on a rebel-held suburb in a Damascus last week where hundreds of people died.)

Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar are key supporters of the anti-Assad opposition and have long been agitating for a stronger response from the West. Jordan is struggling under the burden of almost one million Syrian refugees, a seriously destabilizing element for the strategically-located country of less than seven million people.

Britain and France are the European countries most likely to contribute to any military response, while Germany and Italy are viewed as more leery.

In the event that a decision is taken to initiate military action against Syria, the U.S. has an array of Sixth Fleet naval assets in the Mediterranean as well as in the Fifth Fleet area of responsibility, which includes the Red Sea and Persian Gulf.

Ships in the Mediterranean include the Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyers USS Gravely, USS Barry, USS Mahan and USS Ramage, all armed with Tomahawk missiles. One of the four, the USS Barry, was one of two ships in the class that were involved in Odyssey Dawn, the U.S. part of the NATO mission in Libya in 2011, firing dozens of missiles at Libyan targets in the opening salvo of that operation.

The Sixth Fleet's flagship, the joint command vessel USS Mount Whitney, served as the tactical operations center during the Libya mission.

Just two weeks ago the aircraft carrier USS Harry S. Truman was in the Mediterranean, but according to the U.S. Navy, as of Friday it was back in the Fifth Fleet area of responsibility.

Also in the Fifth Fleet area are the amphibious assault ships USS San Antonio and USS Kearsarge (another Odyssey Dawn participant), which carry Harrier attack aircraft and were recently in the Red Sea as a precautionary measure during the Egyptian crisis. The guided missile cruiser USS San Jacinto was in the Red Sea just last week.

With overflight permission from Jordan, the northern reaches of the Red Sea's Gulf of Aqaba would bring missiles or aircraft within 280 miles of Damascus. Moreover, the U.S. left a detachment of F-16 fighters in Jordan after the end of annual joint military exercises last June (prompting Russia to say at the time that their use to impose a no-fly zone over Syria would violate international law).

Other options available to the U.S. in the event of a decision to launch strikes would be direct bombing runs from the NATO airbase in Aviano, north-eastern Italy, about 1,500 miles from Damascus, or from the base in Incirlik, Turkey, only about 300 miles from the Syrian capital.

Britain has warplanes in nearby Cyprus while France has fighters at an airbase in the United Arab Emirates, about 1,300 miles from Damascus.

'On the sidelines for too long'

In Malaysia this weekend, Defense Secretary Chuck Hagel said President Obama had asked the Pentagon "to prepare options for all contingencies" and it had done so. "We are prepared to exercise whatever option, if he decides to employ one of those options," Hagel said.

When Dempsey last month provided lawmakers with his assessment of possible military options in Syria, among them were limited air and missile strikes against military targets, the enforcement of a no-fly zone over Syria, and measures to destroy or seize control of chemical weapons stockpiles.

Dempsey said the stand-off strike option would require hundreds of aircraft, ships and support assets and would carry risks including possible retaliatory attacks and likely "collateral damage" to civilians. Depending on duration, he predicted the cost "would be in the billions."

Risks of implementing a no-fly zone, he said at the time, would include "the loss of U.S. aircraft, which would require us to insert personnel recovery forces."

And the option of targeting chemical weapons carried those same perils, Dempsey said, "with the added risk of U.S. boots on the ground."

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), a leading voice among those in the Senate critical of the administration for its approach to the Syrian crisis, called Dempsey's assessments "disingenuous and exaggerated."

On Sunday, McCain and Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) in a joint statement called for "decisive action" now.

"Using stand-off weapons, without boots on the ground, and at minimal risk to our men and women in uniform, we can significantly degrade Assad's air power and ballistic missile capabilities and help to establish and defend safe areas on the ground."

The senators charged that the U.S. had "sat on the sidelines for too long."

"The conflict is now becoming a regional one that directly threatens some of America's closest friends and allies in the Middle East."

'Nothing More Impeachable' Than War Without Authorization, Says Constitutional Scholar

June 15, 2011 - 5:41 PM

(CNSNews.com) - Louis Fisher, a scholar in residence at the Constitution Project who served for 40 years as a constitutional law expert at the Library of Congress, says Americans and members of Congress should understand that President Barack Obama committed a "very grave offense" against the Constitution in taking military action in Libya without congressional authorization.

"I am not going to recommend that the House Judiciary Committee hold impeachment hearings, but I would like members of Congress and the public to say that nothing would be more impeachable than a President who takes the country to war without coming to Congress, who does it unilaterally," Fisher told CNSNews.com's Online With Terry Jeffrey.

"So, I would like people to be educated, including members of Congress, to be educated that that is a very grave offense," said Fisher.

On March 19, President Barack Obama ordered the U.S. military to take actions against the Libyan regime of Muammar Gadhafi.

The day before that, Obama had given a speech stating that a resolution passed by the U.N. Security Council on the previous day that authorized the use of military force in Libya would justify U.S. action there.

"Yesterday, in response to a call for action by the Libyan people and the Arab League, the U.N. Security Council passed a strong resolution that demands an end to the violence against citizens," said Obama. "It authorizes the use of force with an explicit commitment to pursue all necessary measures to stop the killing, to include the enforcement of a no-fly zone over Libya."

In his March 19 speech informing the American people that he had ordered military action in Libya that was already taking place as he spoke, Obama said he was taking the action to defend the "writ of the international community."

"So we must be clear: Actions have consequences, and the writ of the international community must be enforced," said Obama. "That is the cause of this coalition."

Fisher, whose book Presidential War Power is a definitive scholarly account of the drafting of the constitutional war power and its historical interpretation and implementation, scoffs at Obama's argument that the United Nations, which the U.S. joined through a treaty ratified by the Senate, can usurp the war power the Constitution gives to both houses of Congress.

"He said I have authorization from the Security Council. It is not authorization under U.S. constitutional law," said Fisher.

"First of all, I would like to make it clear that in the U.N. Charter, you cannot have the president and the Senate through the treaty process--the UN Charter or NATO--you cannot have those two actors take the power of Congress and the House of Representatives and give it to either the Security Council or to NATO countries," said Fisher.

"And I think even people who read presidential power broadly know that that is not possible," he said.

"You cannot use a treaty to amend the Constitution," he explained.

In Presidential War Powers, Fisher recounts how Framers James Madison and Elbridge Gerry introduced an amendment at the Constitutional Convention to change the language of the proposed power to make war. The draft presented to the full convention said Congress would have the power to "make" war.

"Mr. Madison and Mr Gerry moved to insert 'declare,' striking out 'make' war; leaving to the Executive the power to repel sudden attacks," wrote Madison in his notes from the convention.

Explaining this proposed change, Gerry said he "never expected to hear in a republic a motion to empower the Executive alone to declare war."

Madison and Gerry's amendment was accepted by the convention and included in the Constitution ratified by the states. Had Madison and Gerry's amendment not been accepted, the Constitution would have given Congress all power over war by giving Congress alone the power to "make" war. With the amendment, as per Madison's notes, Congress still had the power over war except when the president needed to "repel sudden attacks."

Fisher writes in is book, and said in his interview with CNSNews.com, that all presidents from George Washington through Franklin Roosevelt respected this understanding of the Constitution until President Harry Truman sent U.S. troops into Korea without authorization from Congress--using a U.N. resolution as his justification.

Fwd: [OBama_SUCKS] BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA EVER!



---------




BEST SUMMATION OF BARACK AND MICHELLE OBAMA EVER!
 
 
Mychal Massie is a respected writer and talk show host in Los Angeles.
 
The other evening on my twitter, a person asked me why I didn't like the Obama's? Specifically I was asked: "I have to ask, why do you hate the Obama's? It seems personal, not policy related. You even dissed (disrespect) their Christmas family picture."
 
The truth is I do not like the Obamas, what they represent, their ideology, and I certainly do not like his policies and legislation. I've made no secret of my contempt for the Obamas. As I responded to the person who asked me the aforementioned question, I don't like them because they are committed to the fundamental change of my/our country into what can only be regarded as a Communist state.
 
I don't hate them per definition, but I condemn them because they are the worst kind of racialists, they are elitist Leninists with contempt for traditional  America. They display disrespect for the sanctity of the office he holds, and for those who are willing to admit same, Michelle Obama's raw contempt for white  America is transpicuous.
 
I don't like them because they comport themselves as emperor and empress.
 
I expect, no I demand respect, for the Office of President and a love of our country and her citizenry from the leader entrusted with the governance of same. President and Mrs. Reagan displayed an unparalleled love for the country and her people. The Reagan's made Americans feel good about themselves and about what we could accomplish.
 
His arrogance by appointing 32 leftist czars and constantly bypassing congress is impeachable.
 
Eric Holder is probably the MOST incompetent and arrogant DOJ head to ever hold the job. Could you envision President Reagan instructing his Justice Department to act like jack-booted thugs?
 
Presidents are politicians and all politicians are known and pretty much expected to manipulate the truth, if not outright lie, but even using that low standard, the Obama's have taken lies, dishonesty, deceit, mendacity, subterfuge and obfuscation to new depths. They are verbally abusive to the citizenry, and they display an animus for civility.
 
I do not like them, because they both display bigotry overtly, as in the case of Harvard Professor Louis Gates, when he accused the Cambridge Police of acting stupidly, and her code speak pursuant to now being able to be proud of America. I view that statement and that Mindset as an insult to those who died to provide a country where a Kenyan, his illegal alien relatives, and his alleged progeny, could come and not only live freely, but rise to the highest, most powerful, position in the world. Michelle Obama is free to hate and disparage whites because Americans of every description paid with their blood to ensure her right to do same.
 
I have a saying, that "the only reason a person hides things, is because they have something to hide." No president in history has spent over a million dollars to keep his records and his past sealed.
 
And what the two of them have shared has been proved to be lies. He lied about when and how they met, he lied about his mother's death and problems with insurance, Michelle lied to a crowd pursuant to nearly $500,000 bank stocks they inherited from his family. He has lied about his father's military service, about the civil rights movement, ad nausea. He lied to the world about the Supreme Court in a State of the Union address.
 
He berated and publicly insulted a sitting Congressman. He has surrounded himself with the most rabidly, radical, socialist academicians today. He opposed rulings that protected women and children that even Planned Parenthood did not seek to support. He is openly hostile to business and aggressively hostile to  Israel .
 
His wife treats being the First Lady as her personal American Express Black Card (arguably the most prestigious credit card in the world). I condemn them because, as people are suffering, losing their homes, their jobs, their retirements, he and his family are arrogantly showing off their life of entitlement - as he goes about creating and fomenting class warfare.
 
I don't like them, and I neither apologize nor retreat from my public condemnation of them and of his policies. We should condemn them for the disrespect they show our people, for his willful and unconstitutional actions pursuant to obeying the Constitutional parameters he is bound by, and his willful disregard for Congressional authority.
 
Dislike for them has nothing to do with the color of their skin; it has everything to do with their behavior, attitudes, and policies. And I have open scorn for their constantly playing the race card.
 
I could go on, but let me conclude with this. I condemn in the strongest possible terms the media for refusing to investigate them, as they did President Bush and President Clinton, and for refusing to label them for what they truly are. There is no scenario known to man, whereby a white president and his wife could ignore laws, flaunt their position, and lord over the people, as these two are permitted out of fear for their color.
 
As I wrote in a syndicated column titled, "Nero In The White House" - "Never in my life, inside or outside of politics, have I witnessed such dishonesty in a political leader.
 
He is the most mendacious political figure I have ever witnessed. Even by the low standards of his presidential predecessors, his narcissistic, contumacious arrogance is unequalled. Using Obama as the bar, Nero would have to be elevated to sainthood...
 
Many in America wanted to be proud when the first person of color was elected president, but instead, they have been witness to a congenital liar, a woman who has been ashamed of America her entire life, failed policies, intimidation, and a commonality hitherto not witnessed in political leaders. He and his wife view their life at our expense as an entitlement - while  America's people go homeless, hungry and unemployed."
