Think Tank ‘Analyst’ Says ‘Being Hung, Drawn, And Quartered Is Probably Too Good’ For Obama

 

 

A senior policy analyst from an immigration-restrictionist think tank wants to see President Barack Obama not just impeached, but publicly executed, he told a sympathetic audience last week. During a talk at a Tea Party organization in Sebring, Florida, Center for Immigration Studies (CIS) analyst Stephen Steinlight said that Obama’s supposed executive overreach couldn’t be reined in by a lawsuit and that “being hung, drawn, and quartered is probably too good for him,” Imagine 2050 first reported. He then joked that Obama’s head should be on a skewer.

 

Talking with members of the Highlands Tea Party, Steinlightsaid that Boehner’s lawsuit against Obama to faithfully execute the law would not prevent the President from taking executive action on immigration.

 

Anti Immigration Bigot Says Brutal Execution “Too Good” for Pres Obama

 

 

“There’s no court that will stop Obama from doing anything,” Steinlight said to members of the Highlands Tea Party. “And we all know, if there ever was a president that deserved to be impeached, it’s this guy. Alright? And I wouldn’t stop. I would think being hung, drawn, and quartered is probably too good for him. But you know, this man who wants to rule by the use of a pen, a telephone, let us not forget his teleprompter … the fact is that it would backfire very badly and we’ve got to be grownups and accept that we can’t have everything we want, you know, [like] his head on a skewer.”

 

Highland Tea Party members could be heard applauding and laughing in the background. Steinlight also alluded to the child migrant situation, saying that many of them are gang bangers and that “there are a lot more like them.”

 

According to his biography on the CIS website, Steinlight previously provided expert testimony on immigration for the Judiciary Committee of the United States. The work of his organization, CIS, is heavily cited by conservatives like Sen Jeff Sessions (R-AL) and House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-VA).

 

This is not the first time that Steinlight has made inflammatory comments — he once advocated banning Muslim immigration and said that immigration reform is a psychotic plot against America.

 

Thank you Think Progress.

I usually don’t give space on my blog to dumbfuckery…but the incident listed above goes to a bigger issue some racist caucasian AmeriKKKans seem to have with our twice duly elected President Of The United States, Barack Hussein Obama.

 

I’ve heard many of these racist caucasian AmeriKKKans say that Barack is not a legitimate POTUSA. That opinion is solely based on Barack’s skin tone. See, no Negro can legitimately hold the highest office in “their” land if he is not caucasian or male. Sad and pathetic I know, but this mindset is an All AmeriKKKan thought process. If you’re white, you’re alright. If you’re brown, stick around. If you’re Black, you don’t exist.

 

The threats to our President of The United States Of ALL America are so numerous that it is humorous. I would wager that in the history of Presidents, none of the past 43 have ever had such blatant hatred directed toward this office…..or the office holder. But then again racism is a disease. Any disease must be removed by surgery or medicine, before it kills the body’s cell structure. The structure of America is terminal.

 

To say that Barack Hussein Obama’s Presidency is not legal, is illegitimate or goes against the U.S. Constitution simply because he is a Black man doing whats best for every American, whether you voted for him or not….is as asinine as believing you can stop him from using his powers of Executive Order/Action just because you don’t like his Executive Orders/Actions, by suing him. Barack is the 44th POTUSA. Barack has implemented The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act.

 

ALL You dumbass racist caucasian TeaTardedRepubliCANT Pseudo-Freudian, Psycho-Sexual, Pro-caucasian, Pro-Racist, Anti-LGBTQA1, Anti-Feminist, Reich Wing GOPretender Conselfishservative, NRA-Gun Loving, Nut Bag, bottom feeding, racist, ass backwards, white supremacists, Koch Brothers & A.L.E.C. controlled morons, greedy, wealthy, caucasian, special interest groups, asshole Party Members, can dig up all the federal judges you can find to say “defund ObamaCares”…..remember they are members of the Judicial Branch of government. They have no authority over the Legislative Branch of government, or what The Executive Branch of government does, especially the Office of The President.

 

High school Civics, 101.

 

So, in closing, for all you morons, idiots, racist & dumbasses…..your will was defeated twice in elections that put this guy………..

 

BkKs05aCQAAS5aK

 

………….in your White Man’s House. Get over yourselves. Racism is not going to win out this time around. The man pictured above is more intelligent, more street smart, more savvy and much more qualified than you guys. So stop with this bullshit not the “real President” garbage. Barack Hussein Obama IS the real deal.  He’s the best damn POTUSA in my lifetime. His First Lady, and their daughters, are the best ever to occupy the White House. Even the Mother-In-Law is spectacular. Jealous much?

Jon Stewart Rips Republican Paranoia Over Refugee Children

 

 

 

I listened to a news report this morning that told me the Governor of the state I vote in, Iowa, has made a public statement that immigrant children are NOT welcome in “His” state of Iowa.

 

Just sit back and read along……

 

Terry Edward Branstad (born November 17, 1946) is an American politician who is the 42nd Governor of Iowa, in office since January 2011. Branstad was also the 39th Governor of Iowa from 1983 to 1999, and he was President of Des Moines University from 2003 to 2009. He is a member of the Republican Party. Branstad is the longest-serving governor in Iowa history, and the second-longest serving governor in U.S. history.

 

In his 2010 political comeback, Branstad won a three-way primary election for the Republican nomination to run for governor in the general election. He faced incumbent Governor Chet Culver, a Democrat, and four third party candidates on November 2, 2010. He won the general election in November, defeating Culver by 52.9% to 43.1%.

 

Branstad entered the 2010 race as the front runner for both the primary and general elections. Independent polling in 2009 indicated that his approval ratings hovered in the 70% range. He was widely seen as the front runner for the Republican nomination, and had wide leads in aggregate polling against the scandal-ravaged Governor Culver. He won the Republican primary with 50.4% of the popular vote, 9.5 percentage points ahead of his nearest competitor.

 

On January 15, 2014, Branstad officially launched his re-election campaign for what would be an unprecedented sixth four-year term as Iowa governor, which would also make him the longest-serving governor in U.S. history (breaking the record held by George Clinton of New York, who served 21 years from 1777 to 1795, and from 1801 to 1804).

 

Now I know the above stuff is boring, but here is where it gets interesting………

 

Early life

Born to a Norwegian-American Lutheran farming family in Leland, Iowa, Branstad received his undergraduate degree from the University of Iowa and his law degree from Drake University Law School.  After getting his undergraduate degree, he was drafted and served in the United States Army from 1969 to 1971, serving as an MP (Military Police), and was awarded the Army Commendation Medal for meritorious service; he once recalled that he arrested actress Jane Fonda for coming onto post at Arlington National Cemetery, where she was planning to attend an anti-war protest. In 1989, he was named an honorary member of Alpha Gamma Rho Fraternity at Iowa State University.

 

Allow me to repeat that, in case you missed the facts…..Born to a Norwegian-American Lutheran farming family in Leland, Iowa. Mr. Branstad is himself an immigrant based on the fact that his parents were/are Norwegian, as were his grandparents. The name Branstad is NOT Native Americans, so Mr. Branstad himself is an immigrant.

 

As the opening graphic states, unless your heritage, culture or lineage is Native American, YOU ARE AN IMMIGRANT.

 

One doesn’t even have to learn the history of America during the systematic slaughter and incarceration of the Native American people to know America is NOT the home of the brave or the land of the free…..unless you happen to be wealthy, caucasian and male. America and Americans raped, killed, slaughtered, murdered and enslaved an entire culture to acquire this land that current day protesters claim as “their land.”

 

These disgusting asshats who wrap themselves in the American flag, are themselves immigrants.

“You’re all f*cking illegal. You’re all illegal,” the Native American man yelled at the protesters, who had gathered in Tucson, Arizona to demonstrate their opposition to illegal immigration by Central and South Americans. “We didn’t invite none of you here. We’re the only native Americans here.”*

 

A Native American man protested an anti illegal immigrant protest in Arizona by pointing out the protestors hypocrisy. “Get on with your bogus arguments. We’re the only legal ones here.”

Have AmeriKKKans lost their minds? Have Black Americans become the new “House Negros” Malcolm X warned us about, beggin for table scraps from massa’s table for recognition & acceptance? Black Americans should be the very last race of humans agreeing with dumbass caucasians on immigration issues. Have you new-age Negroes forgotten from whence YOUR ancestors came?

 

This scenario is a made for TV movie straight from the land of irony…..

Screaming, frothing at the mouth, flag waving AmeriKKKan immigration protesters standing in front of buses that contain groups of undocumented “CHILDREN” as the buses attempt to deliver these “CHILDREN” to immigration reception centers. The signs saying , “go home”, “we don’t want you here”, “this is OUR land.” Do you see the irony? Do you see the dumbfuckery?

 

Just to be clear, so there is no misunderstanding……

Body of transgender woman found shot to death, left on a Cincinnati street

 

  Saturday, June 28, 2014

 

CINCINNATI, Ohio – A transgender woman was found dead Thursday morning in the middle of a Cincinnati street.

 

Tiffany Edwards, 28, had been shot to death, according to news reports, which said her body was discovered about 8 a.m. Thursday by a city sanitation driver.

Tiffany Edwards, 28

 

Local news reports identified her as DeAndre Edwards and didn’t mention her gender identity, but BRAVO — the Buckeye Region Anti-Violence Organization — said Edwards identified as Tiff or Tiffany.

 

BRAVO also said it believes the murder was hate-motivated and that Edwards was targeted based on perception of her gender identity and expression.

 

“BRAVO is saddened and outraged as our communities continue to be targeted,” Executive Director Gloria McCauley said in a statement.

 

Aaron Eckhardt, BRAVO training and technical assistance director said it’s the fourth killing nationwide this month of a transgender woman of color. A 2013 report by the National Coalition of Anti-Violence Programs found that transgender people were the victims in half the hate-crime killings of LGBT people, and people of color are the victims  in 75 percent of the killings.

 

Edwards’ death is the fourth murder of a transgender woman in Ohio in the past 18 months, and the third murder of a young transgender woman of color:

 

 

  • Betty Skinner, 52, was found dead in her Cleveland apartment in December by a home health worker.

 

  • Brittany Stergis, 22, was found dead in a car in Cleveland, also in December. She had been shot to death. Delshawn Carroll, 19, was arrested and charged with aggravated murder earlier this month.

 

“The brutality and violence we see being committed against trans communities of color is real. It’s happening in our own cities, in our own state. This violence needs to end. Trans lives matter,” Shane Morgan, said founder and chair of TransOhio.

 

McCauley said the latest killing underscores the need for discussion and action on hate crimes against LGBT people. Ohio’s hate-crimes law does not cover crimes based on a victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity.

 

The murders of two other transgender women are being investigated in California and in Florida.

Body of transgender woman found burned, dumped behind garbage bin

 

 Monday, June 23, 2014

 

FORT MYERS, Fla. — More than 200 people attended a vigil Sunday to honor a transgender woman whose body was found dumped behind a garbage bin in Fort Myers, Fla., last week.

 

The bloody and charred body of 31-year-old Yaz’min Shancez was discovered on a dead-end road behind a truck rental facility shortly after 8 a.m. on Thursday, June 19.

 

 31-year-old Yaz’min Shancez

Workers reported that Shancez’ body was “still smoldering” when she was discovered.

 

Family and friend describe Shancez — nicknamed “Miss T” — as a proud transgender woman who loved being surrounded by endless relatives at family barbecues, and who never forgot to say I love you.

 

No arrests have been made in what authorities are calling a homicide, but have not classified as a hate crime.

 

In 2013, 13 of the 18 documented anti-LGBTQ homicides were transgender women and 89 percent of the victims were people of color, GLAAD reports.

 

In California, police are investigating the death of another transgender woman whose body was found June 12 behind a Dairy Queen restaurant in Anaheim, Calif.

 

Thank you

Not one single human is safe in this nation until every single human is safe in this nation. The sexual orientation of a person does not allow for that person to be abused, bullied, harassed or systematically murdered.

 

What makes a coward man think he has the right to take a life, especially because he is too chickenshit to accept the fact that humans have a right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness dependent upon their own individual ideas of what life liberty and the pursuit of happiness is to them?

 

The problem with Americans in 2014 is their lack of the ability to mind their own muthafuckin business and leave others the fuck alone. I hate AmeriKKKa and coward ass AmeriKKKans.

Dildo Fight! An Awesome Gun Safety Ad

 

Published on Jun 27, 2014

It would be mortifying if this happened to anybody! Can you imagine if these kids had found and were playing with guns. We love this ad. In the year following Sandy Hook Elementary School Massacre at least 100 children were unintentionally killed by gun fire. These deaths are completely preventable. You can never be careful enough when it comes to storing your guns. Cenk Uygur (www.twitter.com/cenkuygur), Ana Kasparian (www.twitter.com/AnaKasparian), Jimmy Dore (TYTComedy, The Jimmy Dore Show), and Lissette Padilla (www.twitter.com/lizzette) discuss.

 

“A gun safety advocacy group is using sex toys to start a conversation around gun safety and responsibility.

 

An ad released Thursday titled “Playthings” shows two young boys running around, playing with large, brightly colored dildos as if they’re swords.

 

“If they find it, they’ll play with it,” the narrator says, “so always lock up your guns.”

 

The ad comes from Evolve, an organization committed to reducing gun violence while taking no political position on the issue of gun control. The group’s co-founder, Rebecca Bond, said Evolve aims to “motivate people to make behavior changes” when it comes to firearms safety and responsibility.” *

Apple’s chief has in fact spoken about his sexual orientation, making references to suffering discrimination at a speech last December to Auburn University, but he has not been overtly “out.”

Gun ‘professionals’ fire ‘safely’ 14-inch artillery into house

 

Published on Jun 27, 2014

Homeowner assesses damage after 14-inch artillery shell enters house. ‘Responsible’ Gun Owner ‘Accidentally’ Fires Howitzer At House (VIDEO). Artillery shell fired “safely” lands in house.

 

 
(KOAMTV) A homeowner in Wyandotte, Oklahoma is awaiting damage assessments after an artillery shell entered his home.

 

It was fired at the Oklahoma Full Auto Shoot and Trade Show on Saturday, around 3 miles a way.

 

Homeowner Gene Kelley could not fathom what he found after hearing a large crash inside his home.

 

“It’s unbelievable,” Kelley said. “Unless you were here to see it or see the pictures I’ve got, you would not believe how huge this thing is.”

 

A 105 howitzer artillery shell, 14 and a half inches long and 3 and a half inches across, was lying on his bedroom floor.

 

It entered from the outside wall, hit the ceiling, and damaged another wall, all while he and his wife were home.

 

“Fortunately, nobody was hurt,” Kelley said.

 

Homeowners say if the shell had not first hit a tree limb and then the ground, the impact would have been a lot more severe when it hit the house.

 

The Ottawa County Sheriff’s Department says the shell came from a historic artillery canon fired at the gun show.

 

The gun range owner says the weapon was fired safely by professionals at a downward projection.

 

“It was not on a level plane, but on a downward trend, pointed downhill in the bottom of a valley,” said Mike Friend, Owner of Fast Machine Gun Shoot. “For that thing to rise and go far northwest of the range, it’s just unheard of.”

 

Both he and the homeowner describe it as an absurd occurrence.

 

“It’s a freak accident because as far as the safety end of everything, we drill every one of our shooters before it ever begins,” Friend said. “We have 30-45 minute drill.”

 

“It was definitely a freakish accident that happened,” Kelley said.

 

The weapon owner has agreed to pay for all damages to the Kelley home.

 

Kelley says he is not against guns, but does think there should be a limit on the size and use of such weapons.

 

“The people that bring these type of weapons need to think about whether it is really safe and an appropriate area to take a weapon of that magnitude and shoot it,” Kelley said.

 

Owners of the range say they are taking every measure to prevent something like this from ever happening again.

 

That particular weapon had never been fired on the range before.

 

 

 

Sometimes one does not have to offer any comment at all. Well maybe one comment….NRAssholes.

Citing what the delegates claim are numerous violations of the oath of office, the resolution calls for Representatives in the House “to initiate impeachment proceedings.” RT’s Ameera David speaks with Robert Burgess, communications director for the South Dakota Republican Party, to learn more about the vote.

Dan Pfeiffer: “POTUS Replies”

 

 

This morning, Senior Advisor Dan Pfeiffer sent the message below to the White House email list to share the story of Rebekah — a hardworking mom from Minneapolis who wrote the President to share her story, and will meet with him later this week.

Didn’t get the email? Be sure to sign up.


Hi, all –

Every day, the Office of Presidential Correspondence sorts through thousands of letters. Every night, President Obama reads ten of them. Some people write to share what his decisions mean in their daily lives, to talk about the economy, or to ask a question about a policy. Others just write in to say hello.

Each letter is a chance for President Obama to hear directly from folks across the country about the sorts of issues they face every day.

The President makes notes in the margins, and sits down to reply personally. He often sends the letters to the staff as reminder of what we are fighting for or to ask us to follow up on an issue raised in the letter. So when Rebekah, a hardworking mom from Minneapolis, wrote in to share how much harder it’s become to get ahead and do right by her family, you can bet the President set that letter aside for a reply.

But he’s not just doing that. He’s meeting Rebekah in person this Thursday to spend a day in her shoes. Watch President Obama tell her story, and find out why he’s traveling to her town.

 

When the President travels to Minnesota, he’ll launch the first in a series of “day-in-the-life” visits across the country this summer. He’ll spend a day with Rebekah — and he’ll meet with her family and community members to discuss the issues that matter to them, host a town hall, and talk about the steps we need to take as a country to help more Americans like Rebekah get ahead.

I know the President is excited to talk with her — and Americans like her. So all this summer, he’ll meet with folks who’ve written in to share what their lives are like. He’ll be hitting the road and traveling to communities across the country — sitting around diner booths and kitchen tables to talk about the issues that matter to them.

Rebekah’s story is representative of the experiences of millions of Americans: Even though our economy’s made a historic comeback, too many middle-class Americans are still stretched too thin, and there’s more work to do.

Make sure you see Rebekah’s story — and then tune in on Thursday as the President travels to Minnesota.

 

 

A Letter to the President: Rebekah

 

Published on Jun 23, 2014

The President reads a letter from Rebekah, a hardworking mom from Minneapolis who wrote to the President about what she sees, what she thinks needs changing, and her struggle to get ahead. The President chose to highlight Rebekah’s story because it is representative of the experiences of millions of Americans: While our economy’s made a comeback, too many Americans are still stretched too thin and the President knows there’s more work to do.

Here’s What You Missed: The White House Summit on Working Families

Yesterday, the White House, in partnership with the Department of Labor and the Center for American Progress, hosted a Summit on Working Families with the aim of having a national conversation and set a concrete agenda to bring American workplaces into the 21st century.

 

That conversation brought together businesses, economists, labor leaders, legislators, advocates, and working citizens to talk through the very real issues facing the full spectrum of working families — from low-wage workers to executives.

 

And you didn’t have to be in Washington to participate join in. Americans across the country tuned in and raised their voices online.

 

As Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett noted yesterday: “This is a movement, not a moment.” So if you missed the event yesterday, you can still add your voice. Take a look at our recap of yesterday’s Summit, and if you’ve got a story tell — get involved.

Senate Delays Hurting Our National Security

 

 

As the President’s National Security Advisor, I am focused every day on keeping our country secure and our citizens – at home and abroad – safe. But these goals are hindered and our stature abroad is weakened when we are not fielding a full team. That’s why I urge the Senate to let the President’s qualified ambassadorial nominees get to work on behalf of the American people.

Right now, 48 nominees for ambassador are pending and 26 are on the Executive Calendar and eligible for confirmation by the full Senate – 16 of whom are career Foreign Service Officers. Together, all ambassadorial nominees have been waiting an average of 161 days, while those on the Executive Calendar have been waiting an average of 262 days. This is simply too long.

These crucial posts are vacant and American interests are therefore underrepresented. The longer we wait to fill these roles the harder it becomes to maintain our effective American diplomacy.

Consider:

  • Kuwait borders Iraq and is a vital strategic partner that requires the highest level engagement given the current situation. Yet our post there remains without an ambassador. Now more than ever, it is crucial that our ambassador to the State of Kuwait is confirmed.

 

  • In Africa, a quarter of our ambassadors are awaiting Senate confirmation. And in combating regional instability and serious challenges such as Boko Haram, key partners including Niger, Cameroon, and Mauritania – as well as our delegation to the African Union – need ambassadors in place now. And with the U.S.-Africa Leaders Summit planned for later this summer, it’s crucial that we display our commitment to partnering with leaders from across the continent for the good of Africa and the United States.

 

  • ASEAN will play a crucial role in the East Asia Summit in November 2014, which the President will attend. Substantively and organizationally, we need an ambassador in place to lay the groundwork for a successful Summit. We need a leading voice in our seat at the ASEAN table as tensions in the region have escalated surrounding China’s actions in the South China Sea.

These are only a few of many reasons it is critical to our national security that America fields a full team in our global engagement. The qualified individuals nominated to serve our country need to be confirmed without delay and allowed to do their important work leading our complex and vital interagency teams that are working to protect American interests around the world.

While there is a potential path to confirmation without bipartisan support, our nation’s security is stronger when we act together, and so I call on all members of the Senate to agree to confirm these nominees today so we can get them in place now.

This afternoon, the Vice President ceremonially swore in Sylvia Mathews Burwell as the new Secretary of Health and Human Services.

On June 5, Secretary Burwell was confirmed by a strong, bipartisan majority of Senators. In a statement that day, President Obama commended the Senate and reiterated his support for Secretary Burwell as a proven manager:

 

I applaud the strong, bipartisan majority of Senators who today confirmed Sylvia Mathews Burwell as America’s next Secretary of Health and Human Services. Sylvia is a proven manager who knows how to deliver results, and over her career she has built deep relationships with Democrats and Republicans alike. I’m confident Sylvia’s unparalleled experience will serve her well in her new role as she works to ensure the safety of our food and drug supply, protect our nation from outbreaks or bioterror attacks, keep America at the forefront of medical research, and make sure every American has access to quality, affordable healthcare.

FACT SHEET: Advancing The Human Rights Of LGBT Persons Globally

Remarks by National Security Advisor Susan E. Rice at the White House Forum on Global LGBT Human Rights

It’s great to be here, and particularly great to see such a wonderful collection of faith leaders, human rights activists, private sector representatives and colleagues in government all in one place.  Protecting and upholding human rights, especially for our lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender brothers and sisters, is work to which we all are called, so thank you, thank you so much for joining us here today.

 

The inexhaustible pursuit of equality, the drive to expand opportunity, the unshakeable conviction that human dignity and human rights are the natural endowment of all humankind—these are qualities that are fundamental to our American character.  For many Americans, they are also essential to our personal story.  I would not be standing here today if those who came before me had not pried open doors that had long been shut to people who look like me.  So, I feel a responsibility and a personal passion to help others enjoy the same opportunities that I have been blessed to receive.  It’s what drives me as a public servant and as a mother, because I do not want my children, or anyone else’s, to have their life choices limited by how they look, who they worship, or whom they love.

 

Universal human rights are not bestowed by governments or powerful majorities, they are God’s gift and the birth right of all people.  They belong to lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender men and women as surely as they belong to anyone in the human family.  As President Obama has said so eloquently, “If we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well.”

 

It offends our common humanity when men or women anywhere in the world are beaten or abused, or when individuals anywhere have their rights restricted because of who they are.  And, it doesn’t just harm those who are targeted.  It rends the bonds that knit society together.  Trust recedes; suspicion spreads.  Entire countries are deprived of vital contributions from citizens in minority groups.
