Where does he come up with this crap?

Ohio lawmakers slam Obama plans to rename Mt. McKinley 'Denali' during Alaska trip

For starters, on what authority does he have the right to do this? Secondly, if it was called Mt Kennedy would he be pursuing this? And you have to wonder, of all the things currently going on around the world this is a priority? 

Surprised he didn’t name it Mt Trayvon.

 Speaking of mountains I bet he's trying to work is way up to this. 

His ultimate wet dream. 
If you look real close you can see ' nicknamed scandals' chiseled in his forehead. 

BTW...has anyone ever heard of the Athabascan tribe? Ten to one they're related to the Washington Redskins.


Ohio lawmakers reacted angrily Sunday to the White House's announcement that President Obama would formally rename Alaska's Mt. McKinley — North America's highest peak — "Denali" during his trip to The Last Frontier this week.

"Mount McKinley ... has held the name of our nation's 25th President for over 100 years," Rep. Bob Gibbs, R-Ohio, said in a statement. "This landmark is a testament to his countless years of service to our country." Gibbs also described Obama's action as "constitutional overreach," saying that an act of Congress was required to rename the mountain, because a law formally naming it after Ohio's William McKinley was passed in 1917.

"This political stunt is insulting to all Ohioans, and I will be working with the House Committee on Natural Resources to determine what can be done to prevent this action," Gibbs said.

The Ohio delegation's disappointment at the decision cut across party lines. 

"We must retain this national landmark's name in order to honor the legacy of this great American president and patriot," Democratic Rep. Tim Ryan, whose district includes McKinley's hometown of Niles, in eastern Ohio.

Sen. Rob Portman, R-Ohio, also blasted the decision as "yet another example of the President going around Congress", while House Speaker John Boehner said the naming of the mountain after McKinley was "a testament to [the 25th president's] great legacy .. I am deeply disappointed in this decision."

The state of Alaska has had a standing request to change the name to "Denali" — a native Athabascan word meaning "the high one" — dating back to 1975, when the legislature passed a resolution and then-Gov. Jay Hammond appealed to the federal government.

But those efforts and legislation in Congress have been stymied by members of Ohio's congressional delegation. Even when Mount McKinley National Park was renamed Denali National Park in 1980, the federal government retained Mount McKinley as the name of the actual peak, which rises 20,320 feet above sea level.

"With our own sense of reverence for this place, we are officially renaming the mountain Denali in recognition of the traditions of Alaska Natives and the strong support of the people of Alaska," said Interior Secretary Sally Jewell.

The White House cited Jewell's authority to change the name, and Jewell issued a secretarial order officially changing it to Denali. The Interior Department said the U.S. Board on Geographic Names had been deferring to Congress since 1977, and cited a 1947 law that allows the Interior Department to change names unilaterally when the board fails to act "within a reasonable time." The board shares responsibility with the Interior Department for naming such landmarks.

In 1896, a prospector in the mountains of central Alaska named the range after McKinley upon learning that he had been nominated as a candidate for U.S. president. 

McKinley became the country’s 25th president and was assassinated in 1901, six months into his second term. The 20,000-foot-tall peak had been previously known as Denali -- generally believed to be central to the Athabascan tribe's creation story and the site of significant cultural importance to many Alaska natives, according to the White House. 

Denali also is an Athabascan word meaning "the high one" and is widely used across the state today, according to the White House.

Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, who had pushed legislation for years to change the name, said Alaskans were "honored" to recognize the mountain as Denali.

"I'd like to thank the president for working with us to achieve this significant change to show honor, respect, and gratitude to the Athabascan people of Alaska," Murkowski said in a video message recorded atop the mountain's Ruth Glacier, with cloudy snow-capped peaks behind her.

Obama will not personally visit the peak during his stay in Alaska, which runs through Wednesday. He'll spend much of the trip in Anchorage, south of the peak, where he will attend a State Department-sponsored meeting on climate change, titled GLACIER/Global Leadership in the Arctic Conference.

The conference will bring together foreign ministers of Arctic nations and key non-Arctic states with scientists, policymakers and stakeholders from Alaska and the Arctic, the White House said.

“The Arctic is warming twice as fast as the rest of the world and is experiencing the consequences,” the White House also said Sunday.

Supporters of the global warming theory say those changes include higher average temperatures and less winter sea ice, which is allowing for heavy storm surges that the sea ice once kept at bay, the White House said.

On Monday, Obama is scheduled to meet with leaders from the Alaska native community along with Gov. Bill Walker, Lt. Governor Byron Mallott and Murkowski to discuss ways to strengthen cooperation between the federal government and Alaska native tribes. Among the issues scheduled to be discussed is management strategies for fish and wildlife.

The long trail of dead cops leads to the front door of the WH

Sheriff's deputy ambushed, fatally shot from behind while pumping gas in Houston; suspect fled

This undated photo provided by the Harris County Sheriff's Office shows sheriff's deputy Darren Goforth who was fatally shot Friday, Aug. 28, 2015. Goforth, was pumping gas into his vehicle when a man approached him from behind and fired multiple shots, Harris County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ryan Sullivan told The Associated Press. (Harris County Sheriff's Office via AP) (The Associated Press)

HOUSTON – A sheriff's deputy in uniform was shot and killed Friday night while filling up his patrol car at a suburban Houston gas station, according to authorities.

Deputy Darren Goforth, 47, was pumping gas into his vehicle about 8:30 p.m. Friday when a man approached him from behind and fired multiple shots, Harris County Sheriff's Office spokesman Ryan Sullivan told The Associated Press. Once the deputy fell to the ground, the suspect fired more shots.

Police described the suspect as a dark-complexioned male who is believed to be between 20 and 25 years old, and stands about 5-foot-10 to 6-feet tall. He was wearing a white T-shirt and red shorts and driving a red or maroon pickup-style truck with an extended cab. Police said an intensive search for the suspect remained ongoing Saturday morning.

Can't say for sure but I bet his name is not Joe Jablonski.


This is not the alleged shooter. This is the shooter! Shannon Miles with a criminal history as long as your arm including firearm offenses.

No motive was determined for the shooting. Harris County Sheriff Ron Hickman said Goforth, who was a 10-year veteran of the force, had a wife and two children.

I'll give you the motive!

Race Baiting Barry

 Declaring open season on cops

Sadly we have all heard about cops killed in the line of duty. But think back. In the last 20 years or so years do you ever recall cops being hunted, gunned  down, assassinated, like they are now? In the last year alone how many cops have been out and out executed? It's all because of the prick in the WH. His calculated race baiting sympathy for thugs like Michael Brown, Freddie Gray, Eric Garner, and adopting Trayvon Martin before all the facts were in, did nothing but stoke the fire of racism. Barry in effect with his anti-cop rhetoric has given them Carte blanche when it comes to killing cops.

BTW...Did you ever hear about the out of control Black Lives Matter group before Barry came along? Did the WH issue any statement, at all, about the execution of Deputy Darren Goforth? I  fucking guarantee you would have heard about it had GoForth killed Miles!!! 

After the Charleston shooting he went to the funeral service even sang a song. His motives were purely political. His talent for fostering division is well known. The shooter was a red-neck racist and easy prey for him to capitalize on. This was his opportunity do something, to shake them up... after all the citizenry of Charleston didn't burn down the town like the animals in Ferguson and Baltimore. Why not? It was the resolve of the citizens of Charleston. So he left feeling empty, his goal unattainable. But he did get a  consolation prize. The Confederate flag now resides in a museum.

On the flip side 5 servicemen are killed in TN. Did he go to the funeral? No. 
Did he sing a song? No. 
Did he downplay the shooter was a Muslim? Yes.
And the worse part of all? After they had already been dead 3 or 4 days, and with a whole lot of arm twisting, he finally lowered the flag to half-mast!

And here's another little tidbit.
This is racism at its best...

Barry announces the 2012 launch of African Americans for Obama.

What is this...A campaign or

Black Entertainment Television (BET)? 

I thought he was supposed to be president of all the people!

Imagine the repercussions if this came from Romney.

Barry is the worse president this country has ever seen. The full extent of the damage he's done will not 'blossom' until he's well out of office. That said, just so there is no misunderstanding here, if Ben Carson is our nominee I will support him 100%.


"In my 45 years in law enforcement, I can't recall another incident so cold-blooded and cowardly," Hickman said.

Sheriff's office spokesman Deputy Thomas Gilliland said Goforth had traveled to the Chevron station where the shooting happened, after earlier responding to a routine car accident.

"He was pumping gas into his vehicle. and the male suspect came up behind him and shot the deputy multiple times," Gilliland told the Houston Chronicle. "The deputy fell to ground. the suspect came over and shot the deputy again multiple times as he lay on the ground."

He said Goforth died at the scene. Detectives were checking security camera video for possible clues.

"We are actively searching for suspect right now," Gilliland said. "I can tell you with diligence and justice the suspect will be caught. And he will be brought to justice ... This is a very callous individual."

Harris County Sheriff's deputies and homicide investigators joined officers from other agencies, including the Texas Department of Public Safety and the Houston Police Department, in searching for the suspect.

"This is a very tough moment right now for the Harris County Sheriffs Office," Gilliland said. "Keep us in your prayers and in your thoughts."

Bob Goerlitz, president of the Harris County Deputies Organization, said the incident was "shocking."

"We've been warned of things like this, because of public sentiment nationally and events over the last few years ... It's just horrific. That's the only way to describe it."

Still sowing the seeds of racial division

For Hurricane Katrina anniversary, Obama cites inequities 'brewing for decades'


Separating fact from fiction: 

As we all know Hurricane Katrina was a racist storm. category 3 "David Duke". All homes owned by Caucasians where skirted around. No wind, rain, or flooding. They all went to work the next day (because they had jobs) as if nothing had happened.

Lets highlight some of the events which occurred after Bush created Hurricane Katrina. 

Remember this was the guy who was going to make New Orleans "chocolate again". But it appears he is better suited at making license plates. I'll get to that in a minute.

BTW... imagine the repercussions if a white Republican had said... We're going to make New Orleans Vanilla again.

Boy was Bush right about this guy!

Excerpt from [Decision Points] which I highly recommend reading especially if you happen to hate Bush.

Bush speaking on Air Force One:

"Who's in charge of security in New Orleans? My question silenced the raucous discussion in the Air Force One conference room on Friday Sept. 2, 2005. The governor is in charge," Mayor Nagin said, pointing across the dark wood table at Gov. Kathleen Blanco.
"Every head pivoted in her direction. The Louisiana governor froze. She looked agitated and exhausted. 'I think it's the mayor.'

Interestedly, after Katrina Blanco a Democrat, was a one term governor. Nagin also a Democrat would suffer a worse fate.

This from Wikipedia. Remember the buses in the parking lot Bush sent to help evacuate the city?
They all drowned.
How many taxpayer dollars were wasted on this stunt alone?

New Orleans Mayor Ray Nagin was also criticized for failing to implement his evacuation plan and for ordering residents to a shelter of last resort without any provisions for food, water, security, or sanitary conditions. Perhaps the most important criticism of Nagin is that he delayed his emergency evacuation order until less than a day before landfall, which led to hundreds of deaths of people who (by that time) could not find any way out of the city. Adding to the criticism was the broadcast of school bus parking lots full of yellow school buses which Mayor Nagin refused to be used in evacuation. When asked why the buses were not used to assist evacuations instead of holing up in the Superdome, Nagin cited the lack of insurance liability and shortage of bus drivers.

They couldn't find any bus drivers because it was in their best interest to stay behind... I were expecting them to miss out on the looting? 

Getting back to Nagin. 

Where is he now?

The "honorable" mayor Ray Nagin instead of leading the city through the turmoil was ultimately charged with corruption! On July 9, 2014, Nagin was sentenced to ten years' imprisonment, and more than $585,000 in restitution and forfeiture.

And if we didn't have a corrupt government and MSM Barry would be in the cell next to him.


New Orleans (CNN)President Barack Obama returned Thursday to an outwardly thriving New Orleans to mark strides 10 years after Hurricane Katrina slammed into the city. 

But underneath the visible recovery lie persistent racial and economic inequities that haven't receded since the storm -- figures Obama said prevent New Orleans from declaring itself fully recovered a decade after Katrina.

"Our work here won't be done when almost 40% of children still live in poverty in this city. That's not a finished job. That's not a full recovery," he said, going on to cite statistics showing African-American households in the city earn more than 50% less than their white counterparts -- a figure well above the national average.

Obama: There is still grief in our hearts after Katrina

(He had more grief over a missed putt on the 6th green) 

Anyone remember how saddened he was over the James Foley beheading. He could barely lift his putter.

"There's still too many people who haven't been able to come back home," Obama said. By some estimates, more than 100,000 African-Americans fled New Orleans following Katrina, never to return.

Obama said Thursday there are "folks around the country every day (who) live the words sung by Louis Armstrong: 'Do you know what it means to miss New Orleans?'" 

Wait a minute...I think I hear one of those old Negro spirituals coming on.
Hit it Louie!

The barometers of racial inequality Obama cited aren't unique to New Orleans, and haven't dampened the city's enthusiasm for what has otherwise been a steady recovery that includes new construction, jobs and visitors.

But the now-chronic gaps between rich and poor, and whites and blacks, provided a sober backdrop for Obama's tour of the hard-hit Treme and Lower Ninth Ward neighborhoods on Thursday, where he spoke with residents and assessed the district's recovery. 

On Thursday, he argued Hurricane Katrina "started out as a natural disaster" but "became a man-made one -- a failure of government to look out for its own citizens."

"What that storm laid bare was another tragedy -- one that had been brewing for decades," Obama said. "New Orleans had long been plagued by structural inequality that left too many people, especially poor people, especially people of color, without good jobs or affordable health care or decent housing. Too many kids grew up surrounded by violent crime, cycling through substandard schools where few had a shot to break out of poverty. And so like a body weakened already, undernourished already when the storm hit, there were no resources to fall back on."

In 2010, when Obama marked the five-year anniversary of Katrina in the second year of his presidency, he scarcely mentioned the issues of racial disparity that plagued the city, both before and after the storm, despite speaking at the historically black Xavier University in Gert Town. 

Now in his second term, the President has become more open about addressing issues of race, including the opportunity gap visible in inner-cities around the country. On Thursday he carved out a moment to meet with young men participating in his My Brother's Keeper mentorship program, which seeks to bolster opportunities for African-American men and boys.

"As hard as rebuilding levees is, as hard as rebuilding housing is, real change -- real lasting structural change -- that's even harder," he said.

Book-ended by major events promoting his environmental agenda, Obama did not use the storm's anniversary to make another push to curb climate change, though he did convene a roundtable meeting to discuss steps to prevent the type of infrastructure collapse that devastated the Gulf Coast after Katrina hit.

Instead, he touted his administration's steady success in eliminating bureaucratic barriers to rebuilding New Orleans, and pointed to projects like an overhauled school system and newly rebuilt hospital as examples of a city on the upswing.

In the mostly African-American Lower Ninth Ward, where Obama spoke, the recovery efforts are varied: his venue was a multi-million dollar community center, built with the help of federal funds after Katrina, that sits only blocks from the abandoned cars and blighted lots that have become symbols of a slow recovery.

Just more than 50% of the neighborhood's housing units are now occupied, according to figures from the Data Center, which has tracked statistics in New Orleans in the aftermath of Katrina. The population in 2010 was just more than 2,000 -- 80% smaller than before the storm.

The average household income stands at $33,557 per year -- $4,000 less than it was in 2000, five years before the storm. Nearly one-third of the population lives below the poverty line, more than twice the national average.

"This recovery is at halftime," said Marc Morial, a New Orleans native who served as the city's mayor before becoming the president of the National Urban League. "And because it is at halftime, there is so much more to be done. Until Lower Nine is back, we cannot say this city is fully recovered."

In his remarks, Obama acknowledged the neighborhood's sometimes halting recovery, saying a speech in the Lower Ninth Ward might have "seemed unlikely" in the years immediately following Katrina but that forward-thinking residents had rallied together to reconstruct their neighborhood.

In some ways, Obama's language Thursday most closely echoes his remarks on Katrina from before he became President, including a 2007 speech wading into the racial disparities visible in the storm's aftermath.

Though he told a church crowd then that the administration of then-President George W. Bush was "colorblind in its incompetence" during its response to Katrina, he suggested the storm exposed long-festering inequalities in the city.

"Everyone here knows the disaster and the poverty happened long before that hurricane hit," Obama said then. "All the hurricane did was make bare what we ignore each and every day, which is that there are whole sets of communities that are impoverished, that don't have meaningful opportunity, that don't have hope and they are forgotten."

But that's why they elected you Barry. You're were the Hope and Change candidate now long into your second term. Why have you forsaken them? The people in New Orleans could have used the millions you sent to the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt. Not to mention blowing over half billion on that Solyndra deal.

The fact of the matter is if you decide to live in New Orleans you do so at your own peril when it comes to hurricanes. Take it from: 

The Weather Channel.!

Oh...and Bush decided to visit New Orleans while Barry was still there. 

Obviously they hate him.

Is Iran charging us $10.5 million a year to conduct inspections?

Maybe not but we're paying a hefty price. Oh...and what they say it is going to cost is usually just a ballpark figure! 

Everyone in the United Nations is united on one thing. Make sure America pays the lion's share of everything. The United States pays 22 percent of the organization's “regular” budget and 27 percent of peacekeeping costs in addition to millions of dollars worth of “voluntary” contributions to UN-affiliated agencies not to mention providing the building itself headquartered in NYC. Overall, only five nations — the U.S., Japan, Germany, the United Kingdom, and France — finance more than 50 percent of the total U.N. budget.

By contrast, “developing” nations with booming economies like Brazil, China and India pay much less. For example, China, which has become our banker, pays a whopping two percent of the U.N. budget – less than 10 percent of the U.S. contribution.  

BTW...$10.5 million for inspections per year? Will the inspectors be driving Bentley's? Trump said he's going to build a wall and have Mexico pay for it. Iran told Barry we want a nuke, $150 billion, and you're paying for the inspections.

UN expects Iran nuke deal monitoring to cost $10.5 million a year

VIENNA (AP) -- A confidential document from the U.N.'s atomic agency says the extra work related to monitoring Iran's compliance with last month's nuclear deal will cost about 9.2 million euros ($10.5 million) each year.

The International Atomic Energy Agency document obtained by The Associated Press also estimates the final tab will be nearly 138 million euros ($157 million) over the life of the pact.

Drawn up for a special IAEA meeting Tuesday, the document says the costs are calculated from the time the deal begins to be implemented, at some point after it is adopted on Oct 18.

The document extrapolates the total cost by saying the estimated annual cost of 9.2 million euros is "foreseen as being applicable for 15 years." That is the expected duration of the Iran deal.

U.K. Immigration Reaches Record Level

Now you know why Mohammed is the most popular boys name in England and Wales.

(Read the entire article)

This is want the Brit's got in return for allowing them into the country.


LONDON—Immigration flows to the U.K. reached a record level during the year ended in March, amid a surge in new arrivals from other European countries as well as from further afield. 

The number of people arriving in Britain exceeded the number leaving by 330,000 for the 12 months through March, according to official data released Thursday. The majority of those arriving came to work or study.

The figures come at a time of heightened unease over immigration in Britain and the wider European Union, which is struggling to cope with one of the largest waves of migration in decades. Hundreds of thousands of people have fled conflict in countries, such as Iraq and Syria, to seek refuge in Europe, and thousands more have arrived from the Middle East, Africa and further afield seeking work and a better life.

A "better life" translates into destroying the lives of the people who live in the European countries they immigrate to. The guise is migration... the goal is colonization.

The U.K. has seen an increase in the numbers of those seeking asylum. The figures released Thursday showed a 10% increase in the number of asylum applications for the year ended in June to 25,771. Still, that level remains well below the peak Britain saw in 2002 of more than 80,000.

The latest figures show a large increase in net migration by other EU citizens to the U.K., up 53,000 to 183,000 for the year ended in March.

Those figures are likely to fan debate in Britain about its continued membership of the EU.

U.K. Prime Minister David Cameron <> has made immigration a central part of a pledge to reshape the U.K.’s ties with the EU. He and his governing Conservative Party were elected for a second term in office in May on a platform that included a promise to renegotiate Britain’s relationship with the EU and hold a referendum by the end of 2017 on whether the U.K. should exit.

The prime minister has said he wants Britain to stay in the EU, the largest market for British goods and services, but only under new terms. Among his demands is limiting the numbers of European citizens moving to Britain, but that has prompted some in Europe to warn Mr. Cameron that the principle of free movement of people and labor within the EU is nonnegotiable.

Mr. Cameron has long promised to reduce migration flows to the U.K. to below 100,000, a pledge he has acknowledged he has failed to meet.

ESPN suspends Schilling over tweet comparing Muslims to Nazis

He should have been fired... for insulting Nazis. 

 ESPN acted immediately preserving their PC posture. Because it's not like Muslims are just glued to the TV watching Little League baseball.

But not to worry. Schilling caved in. Which means a position at ESPN covering Little League is more important than the truth. At least have the balls to stand by your own convictions. Perhaps he should call Caitlyn... I heard she has a pair left over.

And I'm sure it has only gotten worse.


Curt Schilling Likens Islam to Nazi Party, Gets Suspended By ESPN

Former MLB star and current ESPN analyst Curt Schilling has been suspended by the network after posting a controversial meme on Twitter.

The gist? The meme shared by Curt implies radical Muslims are as serious of a threat to the world as the Nazis, and statistics prove it ...

The meme, with Hitler photo, reads, "It's said only 5-10% Muslims are extremists. In 1940 only 7% of Germans were Nazis. How'd that go?!"

Curt added, "The math is staggering when you get to true #'s."

Schilling only had the post up for about 10 minutes before rethinking it, but that was more than enough for the ESPN brass to take notice.

ESPN promptly yanked the former All-Star pitcher from his assignment covering the Little League World Series in the wake of his post.

The network said in a statement, "Curt's tweet was completely unacceptable, and in no way represents our company's perspective."

"We made that point very strongly to Curt and removed him from his current Little League assignment pending further consideration."

Schilling, 48, just issued the following statement regarding the matter, apologizing and saying, "I understand and accept my suspension."

The situation, he says, is "100% my fault. Bad choices have bad consequences and this was a bad decision in every way on my part."

Obama calls out Koch brothers for opposing solar power

LAS VEGAS, Aug. 25 (UPI) -- President Obama lashed out against critics of his energy policies and high-power conservatives, specifically the Koch brothers, for pushing back against regulations that would enable growth in the renewable energy sector.

The president, speaking at a green energy conference in Las Vegas Monday night, said the explosive growth of renewable energy, particularly solar, "has some big fossil fuel interests pretty nervous," specifically singling out billionaire brothers Charles G. and David H. Koch of Koch Industries. Koch backers have battled against clean energy mandates in several states, likening them to healthcare mandates under Obamacare.

"When you start seeing massive lobbying efforts backed by fossil fuel interests, or conservative think tanks, or the Koch brothers pushing for new laws to roll back renewable energy standards, or to prevent new clean energy businesses from succeeding, that's a problem," he said. "That's not the American way. That's not progress. That's not innovation. That's rent seeking. That's standing in the way of progress," Obama said.

(Click to enlarge)

Obama's speech to about 1,000 people at the National Clean Energy Summit came after his administration announced several measures to encourage solar power construction, including the Clean Power Plan, which requires states to cut carbon emissions by about 32 percent. The president has focused on climate change in this second term.

Obama will fly to New Orleans on Thursday, on the 10th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina, to speak about global warming and next week to Alaska. 

Doesn't every company filing bankruptcy get raided by the FBI?
