Obama To Seek Congressional Backing For Syria Strike

Wall Street Journal -- WASHINGTON—President Barack Obama said Saturday he is prepared to take military action if necessary against Syria for the alleged use of chemical weapons against its own people, but said he will seek authorization from Congress before moving forward.

"This menace must be confronted," Mr. Obama vowed in an address from the White House Rose Garden, arguing for using force to punish the regime of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. Not acting, he said, "risks making a mockery of the global prohibition on the use of chemical weapons."

"I'm ready to act in the face of this outrage. Today I am asking Congress to send a message to the world that we are ready to move forward together as one nation," Mr. Obama said.

The president has faced criticism on the political left and right, with some lawmakers arguing against a military response and others demanding more information about any U.S. mission in advance of a presidential order. House Speaker John Boehner (R., Ohio), in particular, had pushed Mr. Obama to consult with Congress about his plans for military action.

Mr. Obama said he's talked with leaders in Congress and they've agreed to schedule a debate on using force as soon as they return from their August recess on Sept. 9, though lawmakers could be called back earlier.

The president said the effectiveness of any U.S. military strike, which he vowed would be limited, is "not time sensitive."

"It could be effective tomorrow, or next week or one month from now," Mr. Obama said. He said he is aware that the United Nations and some countries may not agree with his decision. He said he's prepared to go forward without their approval.

Blog author's comments - Barack Obama should stay out of Syria period! Whatever he does now is only for show. He is stalling but he feels he has to do something. He said he would punish the Syrian President Bashar al-Assad for supposedly using chemical weapons against the rebel forces who are attempting to oust him. Obama said he would take action without Congressional approval. Now he is asking for the okay from Congress so if he creates a mess for the United States he can place much of the blame on Congress.

Most of us should know...except for the low-information people...just how swell things have turned out when he pushed to remove the dictators in Egypt and Libya. In Egypt the Muslim Brotherhood took control of the country and Mohamed Morsi of the Muslim Brotherhood was elected president. Now the Egyptian people and army have removed president Morsi and the Muslim Brotherhood is fighting to regain control, and the country is in chaos.

In Libya al-Qaeda was behind the attack on the American Embassy in Benghazi in which the American Ambassador and three other Americans were murdered. Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton did nothing to help those who died. The Obama administration has put this behind them and those responsible for the attack and murders have never been brought to justice. Obama referred to the murdered Americans in Libya as 'bumps in the road.'

Obama waited too long if he intended to do anything in Syria. He should leave it alone because he could very well create much bigger problems than now currently exist within the Middle-East. Obama also thought he would have the help and support of the UK but the British parliament voted that down. I repeat, stay out of Syria, nothing good can come from whatever Obama does there.

Nancy Pelosi: I Don't Want To Be Speaker Again, 'That's Not My Thing'

Huffington Post -- House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) told National Journal she's not looking to fill the role of House Speaker again anytime soon.

When asked by reporter Ben Terris if she'd like to be House Speaker again, Pelosi was quick to reject the idea.

"No, that's not my thing. I did that," Pelosi said.

But not everyone feels the same as Pelosi. President Barack Obama said in April 2013 it would be "whole lot easier to govern" with Pelosi as House Speaker.

"My job is to make sure we move the country forward, and I think we can best do that if Nancy Pelosi is speaker of the House once again," Obama said during a fundraiser.

Pelosi has criticized current House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio), saying in May he'd be called "the weakest speaker in history" if "he were a woman."
Blog author's comments - Nancy Pelosi is lying. She desperately wants to be the speaker again, but this country would be in free fall if Pelosi was put back in the speaker's chair. That would mean the Democrats were in control of the House and Obama would do so much damage to America during is last two years in office it could never be repaired.

The midterm election in 2014 is a must win election not only for the Republican Party but also for the country.

Second Suspect Arrested in Murder of Delbert Belton

KXLY -- SPOKANE, Wash. - The second suspect in the beating death of an 88-year-old WWII veteran has been arrested.

Police say they arrested 16-year-old Kenan Adams-Kinard just after 3 a.m. on Monday morning in connection with the murder of Delbert Belton.

He was found in a basement apartment at 500 West Montgomery in Spokane and arrested without incident.

Police say good investigative work and follow up on dozens of tips help lead to the apprehension of the suspect.

Adams-Kinard was arrested on a First-Degree Robbery and First-Degree Murder warrant. Several other people with him have been arrested for rendering criminal assistance.

Last week, police arrested 16-year-old Demetrius Glenn in connection with the murder. He was charged with First-Degree Murder and First-Degree Robbery.
Blog author's comments - What kind of sub-humans would bludgeon an innocent 88 year old man to death? Hopefully the two who killed Delbert Belton will go to prison for the remainder of their lives. The liberals will attempt to invent excuses for the two accused of the robbery and killing but there are none. The suspects are Kenan Adams-Kinard and Demetrius Glenn, both just 16 years old.

Has anyone heard anything from Al Sharpton or Jesse Jackson concerning the beating death of Mr. Belton? They quickly jumped in to stir the pot of racism when George Zimmerman shot Trayvon Martin while Martin was beating him. And the liberals, many in the black community, along with the Obama administration did not care for the not guilty verdict from the jury. The AG Eric Holder still has his people in the DOJ trying to find anything they can to file a civil suit against Zimmerman.

It is difficult to fully comprehend why the two suspects did what they are accused of but our country is full of many more just like them. Too bad Mr. Belton did not have a gun with him, perhaps he could have saved himself.

If You Like Your Health Care Plan You May Not Be Able To Keep It

Blog author's comments - President Barack Obama said: "If you like your current insurance, you will keep your current insurance, no government takeover, nobody's changing what you've got that you're happy with." That is not entirely true unless you are a member of a labor union. It is pay back time for the unions who have supported Obama during his entire presidency.

Obamacare is going to negatively affect a huge number of Americans. We can thank the leftists and low-information voters who voted for him, along with the so-called conservative Chief Justice of the Supreme Court John Roberts, who sided with the four liberals on the SCOTUS when they ruled on the Obamacare law.

Roberts could have struck down the entire law but he is the one who justified the individual mandate under the government’s power to tax...and now most of us are stuck with it. Obama is well on the way with his plan to destroy the greatest health care system ever. Many companies are already beginning to downsize employees or moving some of them from full time to part time status because of Obamacare.

MSNBC's Jimmy Williams on Obama Rodeo Clown: 'Modern Day Lynching'

CNS News -- MSNBC contributor Jimmy Williams on Friday compared the rodeo clown mocking President Barack Obama at the state fair in Missouri to a “modern day lynching.”

“When you put a rodeo clown in a pile of crap and dirt in Missouri and you put a black face on him and say the word Obama 100 times, if you’re going to tell me it’s not racism, you go back and you live in Missouri, because in real America, that’s modern day lynching and racism and nothing less,” Williams said on MNBC’s “Martin Bashir.”

“This is purely 1,000 percent race-baiting,” Williams said.

The Missouri NAACP has called for a federal investigation into the matter. Rep. Steve Stockman (R-Texas), who invited the clown that wore the Obama mask, said the NAACP didn’t speak out when President George W. Bush was portrayed as a murderer.

Stockman said calls for investigations into the Obama rodeo clown by the Justice Department and Secret Service were “silly.”
Blog author's comments - Just when you think it cannot get any more ridiculous MSNBC is still pushing this story. They never talk about the harm Obama is doing to the country. It's only a 'modern day lynching' when it's about Barack Obama. Do the same thing to Bush and its okay with the mainstream media.

MSNBC is nothing more than a puppet of Obama. This is just more about racism by MSNBC. I really do not understand how the few viewers they have can watch them and actually believe what they hear. The only one being lynched is the rodeo clown who is another victim of the leftist smear machine.

Police: Man With Gun Told Victim To Apologize To Black People

My Northwest -- A man has been charged with malicious harassment and second-degree assault after he pointed a gun at a man in Seattle's Green Lake neighborhood and demanded that he apologize "for all the things white people did to black people," according to prosecutors.

Chikwanha E. Nyashanu, 35, was ordered held on $100,000 bail Tuesday after King County District Court Judge Arthur R. Chapman called his actions "inexplicable" and deemed him a danger to the community.

"There appears to be no reason for this kind of behavior," he said.

On Thursday, prosecutors will seek to have the bail amount increased to $500,000 based on information that Nyashanu may have threatened as many as three other people with a gun near the Green Lake Community Center on Sunday.

According to court documents, officers were called to 7201E. Green Lake Dr. around 9:14 p.m. on the report that an unknown male had threatened someone with a handgun.

"Responding officers located a possible suspect in the area and ordered him to the ground," the documents read. "The suspect failed to follow the order. The suspect was tased."

The victim was able to identify the man in custody as the "same person who had just pointed a handgun at him for 15-20 seconds and demanded he apologize for all the things white people did to black people."

In court documents, the victim is described as a white male and the suspect was described by witnesses as a black male.

The victim told the officers he was "scared out of his mind" and "apologized profusely" to the suspect.

According to the documents, the handgun was loaded and police recovered "multiple rounds of ammunition" from Nyashanu's backpack.

During a court hearing on Tuesday, a woman who identified herself as Nyashanu's mother told a judge that her son "has never exhibited any aggressive behavior toward others."

"I am just pretty astounded that this is happening," said the woman, who was white.

According to court records, Nyashanu has a weapons-related conviction from 2002 as well as a conviction for obstruction of justice in 2006 and reckless endangerment in 2009.
Blog author's comments - The true racists have it backwards and believe that white people are at fault for their problems. Obviously Chikwanha E. Nyashanu thinks that whites are responsible for the difficulties and obstacles that many black people have. Blaming white people won't stop minorities from being poor or criminals.

It is not the fault of whites that a large number of blacks are living in poverty. This is the long term effect of the Democratic Party in general, and now Obama in particular, coupled with the entitlement mindset pushed for many decades by the Democrats. They have played the class warfare game for years but it has escalated since Obama has been the president. He was going to be the great uniter...he has done just the opposite.

Democrats, most of the liberal media and the professional race baiters such as Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson continue to tell the blacks that the reason many do not have a better life is because they are being held back by white people. Is it the fault of whites that many blacks do not graduate from high school, that such a high percentage of black babies are born out of wedlock, and that black on black crime is out of control? White people have nothing to do with it.

It is time for many blacks in our society to get out from under the culture in which many of them seem content to live. Until they make the move themselves many will never become successful and will depend on the government to care for them. Because of Obama's economy unemployment remains high and because of his policies and agenda his presidency has been a disaster. The race card is worn out but many blacks still use it.

Can you name one out of 10,865?

Sen. Tom Harkin On Illegals: 'I Just Don't Classify Them As Criminals'

CNS News -- Sen. Tom Harkin (D-Iowa), a federal lawmaker, said he separates illegal aliens from criminals even though “it’s obvious that they broke the laws and did things that were criminal and they shouldn’t.”

At an Aug. 2 immigration forum in Ames, Iowa, Harkin explained his reasoning.

“I separate out people who came here illegally from people who are criminals," he said. "Now it’s obvious that they broke laws and did things that were criminal and they shouldn’t."

“But I’m just saying simply because they came here to work – to provide for their family. They’ve broken no laws other than coming here illegally,” Harkin continued. “They’re here illegally – that’s true. And they need to go through all the hoops we put in the bill. But I just don’t classify them as criminals.”

Harkin attended the event along with Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) to promote the Senate immigration bill. Durbin is the one of the “Gang of Eight” senators who wrote the current Senate immigration reform measure.

Blog author's comments - Harkin said the illegals are not 'criminals' but also said 'that they broke the laws and did things that were criminal.' Obama and all Democrats don't see them as criminals either...they see them as millions of votes for the Democratic Party.

Harkin is just another liberal playing word games… breaking the law is by definition a crime. Those who break the law are criminals. But he and the members of his party want to give them amnesty and citizenship. Whatever they call them we do not want or need them and should not be forced to support them.

I do wish that the Republican members of the GOP controlled House led by Speaker John Boehner would only pass an immigration bill to secure our borders. But Boehner and other Republicans are going to cave on this just as they do anytime there is a conflict between the two parties, but the consequences for the Republicans are now very serious. And Obama and the Dems are portraying the GOP as racists if they do not allow amnesty and citizenship for the illegals.

If the Republican controlled House votes to allow amnesty I think they will lose the midterm election and Obama will have total control his last two years in office to pass anything he wants. I am convinced that the majority of Americans do not want to give a free pass to the illegals. We already have laws for them to follow to earn citizenship. The Democrats are very confident on this being passed. They don't think anything can stop them. And why would they? They have many Republicans in Washington basically agreeing with them.

Virginia Gun Sales Rise, Firearm Related Crimes Drop

Virginian-Pilot -- Firearms sales in Virginia are increasing while gun-related violent crimes are declining.

Firearms sales rose 16 percent in 2012 to a record 490,119 guns purchased in 444,844 transactions, according to federally licensed gun dealer sales estimates obtained by the Richmond Times-Dispatch. During the same period, major crimes committed with firearms dropped 5 percent to 4,378.

"This appears to be additional evidence that more guns don't necessarily lead to more crime," said Thomas R. Baker, an assistant professor at Virginia Commonwealth University's L. Douglas Wilder School of Government and Public Affairs who specializes in research methods and criminology theory.

"It's a quite interesting trend given the current rhetoric about strengthening gun laws and the presumed effect it would have on violent crimes," Baker told the newspaper. "While you can't conclude from this that tougher laws wouldn't reduce crime even more, it really makes you question if making it harder for law-abiding people to buy a gun would have any effect on crime."

But he cautioned against drawing any conclusions that more guns in the hands of Virginians are causing a corresponding drop in gun crime.

Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, said that the real question is how many guns are sold without a background check.

"In other words, if people who buy those guns and have a background check, and keep those guns and don't sell them, then you would not expect that those guns would affect the crime rate," Horwitz told the newspaper. "The important analysis is not the total number of guns sold with a background check, but rather the number of guns sold without a background check."

Virginia State Police conduct instant background checks on everyone seeking to purchase a gun through a federally licensed firearms dealer in Virginia.

Entire column...

Blog author's comments - I am sure that not only Virginia but most states have seen a significant rise in gun and ammunition sales. And this rise is not because of whom the left labels as "gun nuts" stocking up on guns and ammo. A huge number of these sales are first time gun owners. Obama has been the main reason gun stores cannot keep many types of guns and most ammunition in stock. The new gun customers feel that they should buy a gun now before the Obama administration passes laws which will make it more difficult to have a gun. There has also been a large increase of men and women acquiring concealed carry permits.

"Josh Horwitz, executive director of the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, said that the real question is how many guns are sold without a background check." Hey Mr. Horwitz...I wonder who would ever buy a gun without a background check. You don't suppose it would be the criminals in our society do you? I see no effort in attempting to gain control of the gangs and criminals in most cities who are doing the majority of shootings and killings with illegal guns.

The anti-gun people are not interested in any facts about legal gun ownership and its effect on gun related crime. A simpleton can understand that criminals don't abide by gun laws, or any law for that matter. What Josh Horwitz, Barack Obama, Diane Feinstein and many Democrats want to pass is laws to severely infringe upon the ownership of many types of guns by law abiding citizens. They don't like the premise of the 2nd Amendment.

Before Obama's final term ends he will attempt to pass more gun control laws and these laws will only affect the law abiding legal gun owners. This is only one of the many reasons why the election of 2014 is so very important. The Republican Party has got to maintain control of the House or Obama will pass any legislation he desires. And that includes many new gun control laws that will do serious damage to our Second Amendment rights.

NAACP Introduces 'Trayvon's Law'

Digital Journal -- The 2012 killing of Florida teenager Trayvon Martin has led to various rallies, boycotts, and even songs. Now, the NAACP is leading the way in an effort to force legal changes across the United States in an attempt to prevent another similar situation.

The NAACP created "Trayvon's Law," a series of legislative policies that aims to "end racial profiling, repeal stand your ground laws, form effective civil complaint review boards to provide oversight of police misconduct, improve training for community watch groups, mandate law enforcement to collect data on homicide cases involving non-whites, and address the school to prison pipeline," NAACP President and CEO Benjamin Jealous explained in a statement according to AllHipHop.

"What happened to Trayvon Martin must never happen again," Jealous said according to Jet Mag "Trayvon's Law will serve as the foundation for community advocates as they work to end laws and practices that contributed to his death and to create new policies that will prevent further tragedies."

The NAACP will push "Trayvon's Law" at the local, state, and federal levels. The organization's Florida State Conference will be working to immediately enact the law in Florida, AllHipHop reports. The organization is also urging states across the US to adopt the law.
Blog author's comments - The NAACP and their fellow race baiters are going to milk Trayvon Martin's death for all it’s worth as long as they can. Maybe they should teach personal accountability instead. The case never was entirely about George Zimmerman...he was used to advance the agenda of some people. What happened will happen again. New policies won't change it.

So will they enact a series of legislative policies instructing black teenagers and young men to not commit crimes? Not join gangs? Not impregnate women and if they do to help raise the child? I don't think so. They should attempt to impress upon them the advantages of staying in school so they can get a job and be a productive member of society. This won't happen because that would require the NAACP populous to accept some responsibility.

What Mr. Jealous has outlined won't change anything but that's what his base wants to hear and he is going to pretend to provide it…instead of doing the hard work of addressing the real problems in the black community.

The NAACP and the Obama administration along with their leftist base could not believe that George Zimmerman was found to be not guilty of any crime so this will continue. The AG Eric Holder's DOJ along with Martin's parents are pushing for a civil suit against Zimmerman. I don't believe Holder or the parents are doing this as 'Justice for Trayvon.'
