We have a world on fire, pretty much everywhere we can look, and yet Obama is being portrayed in this pitiful article as giving it back to the Republicans....we take issue with this miserably pathetic reporter-stenographer, who goes by the name of Steve Holland
By Steve Holland
Obama's public speeches on a three-day trip, like the one he delivered at the Paramount Theater in Austin, Texas, on Thursday, covered many of the same talking points he delivers at Democratic fund-raising events.
But the tone was significantly sharper.
CR: Eww.....shock and awe...says what can only be seen as an increasingly clueless Liberal reporter, but on a bizarre mission.
In fact, the slashing rhetoric he used before an adoring crowd in the Texas capital may well have surpassed the typically sober review of the status of Washington that he lays out for high-dollar Democratic donors.
CR: Adoring? So the avowed Mess that is the would-be Messiah has somehow resurfaced?
Obama has a long list of grievances with Republicans who control the House of Representatives, who have blocked much of his second-term agenda.
CR: Thank the ever merciful God; can you imagine the mess we would have without a Congress of opposition, as if the grievance lies only with Congress
Problem No. 1 is the lawsuit that House of Representatives Speaker John Boehner is threatening to file over what Republicans feel is Obama's wanton use of executive orders to skirt around congressional inertia.
CR: It's not what Republicans Feel, it's what the world has both seen and felt--this President has already hit epic fail orbit, and means to usurp as much power as possible.
"You hear some of 'em, 'sue him, impeach him,'" Obama said, then added a sarcastic, "Really?"
CR: Oh yeah, really, this guy is like an overreaching lying machine
"For what? You're going to sue me for doing my job? OK. I mean, think about that, you're going to use taxpayer money to sue me for doing my job, while you don't do your job?"
CR: The President's job is to lead, not usurp power at every opportunity while trying to "remake America" into a Marxist Utopia, for God's sake
The crowd applauded.
CR: Obviously of the low-info variety crowds, unless of course the reporter is embellishing a sneeze as applause.
"Sometimes I feel like saying to these guys, 'I’m the guy doing my job. You must be the other guy,'" he said.
CR: No doubt, Bathhouse Barry means the other sweaty guy gladly taking it up the rump--no thanks, El Magnifico.
With Obama's latest congressional proposal, $3.7 billion to tackle the border crisis, facing a rocky path to passage in Congress, the president is contending with what may well be a Washington stalemate throughout the rest of his presidency, which ends in early 2017.
CR Note: Yes indeed, just throw money at a brand new slush fund--we don't think so--how about employing the National Guard, oh wait, you indicated that was only a "temporary solution," right Mr. Obama--as if money is a permanent solution?
On this week's trip, he has taken to wandering down memory lane, recalling simpler times before he was a global figure, remembering fondly a walk he took along the river in Austin that did not attract a crowd or the time he sang on stage here.
CR: Epic Fail, sentimentality
"I remember going to a bar, club, or honky-tonk around here and singing on stage. I wasn't very good. But people were enthusiastic," he said at a fund-raiser at a private home in Austin.
CR: Must have been his extended "Choom-gang"
Obama is finding his travels out of Washington to be cathartic, a way to connect with people who helped put him in office.
"What I've said to my team is 'get me out of Washington,'” the president told donors at the event. He said wanted to talk to people who are doing the right thing and struggling so they know they are being heard.
CR: So, there you have it, struggling to survive is the right thing, Mr. Obama?" Americans don't struggle, Sir, we persevere and win-- an experience Mr. Obama is just now beginning to only now understand... whatever happened to reporters who "hold power to account?"
Reuters should be ashamed.....
Shakes head, miserably......

Democrats endorse arrest powers: “I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day” Pelosi said just days ago
CNN, New York Times also endorse the House’s power to arrest.....
Jul 10, 2014
WASHINGTON — Congressman Steve Stockman Thursday filed a resolution directing the House Sergeant-At-Arms to arrest former IRS Director of the Exempt Organizations Unit Lois Lerner on charges of contempt of Congress.
“Asking the Justice Department to prosecute Lois Lerner for admittedly illegal activity is a joke. The Obama administration will not prosecute the Obama administration. How much longer will the House allow itself to be mocked? It is up to this House to uphold the rule of law and hold accountable those who illegally targeted American citizens for simply having different ideas than the President,” said Stockman.
“Democrats have openly stated the House has the powers to arrest those in contempt of Congress and imprison them in the Capitol. I don’t want to go as far as Democrats in exercising the House’s powers to arrest. Ms. Lerner will be held in the D.C. jail,” said Stockman.
Under the resolution Lerner would be held in the D.C. jail and would have full legal rights and access to an attorney.
“It’s time to for House to stop tacitly endorsing this administration’s illegal activity by refusing to hold him accountable. I expect Democrats to defend and even praise criminal activity. The question is whether Republican leadership will join them in mocking the House and breaking the law,” said Stockman.
Contempt of Congress is a criminal offense (Act of January 24, 1857, Ch. 19, sec. 1, 11 Stat. 155.) Congress’ power to hold someone in contempt has been recognized by the United States Supreme Court four times.
Democrats admit the House has the power to arrest those in contempt of Congress. “I could have arrested Karl Rove on any given day,” former House Speaker and current House Minority leader Nancy Pelosi told The Huffington Post just days ago, on June 20. “I’m not kidding. There’s a prison here in the Capitol. If we had spotted him in the Capitol, we could have arrested him.”
CNN has also recognized Congress’ power to arrest those in contempt of Congress, going so far in 2008 as to televise potential locations where Rove would be held.
The New York Times also recognizes the House’s power to arrest.
“From the Republic’s earliest days, Congress has had the right to hold recalcitrant witnesses in contempt — and even imprison them — all by itself. In 1795, shortly after the Constitution was ratified, the House ordered its sergeant at arms to arrest and detain two men accused of trying to bribe members of Congress. The House held a trial and convicted one of them,” the Times wrote in a Dec. 4, 2007 editorial.
“In 1821, the Supreme Court upheld Congress’s right to hold people in contempt and imprison them. Without this power, the court ruled, Congress would “be exposed to every indignity and interruption, that rudeness, caprice, or even conspiracy, may mediate against it.” Later, in a 1927 case arising from the Teapot Dome scandal, the court upheld the Senate’s arrest of the brother of a former attorney general — carried out in Ohio by the deputy sergeant at arms — for ignoring a subpoena to testify,” the Times wrote.
The text of the resolution, H.Res. 664, follows.
Providing for the arrest of Lois G. Lerner to answer the charge of contempt of Congress
IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES
Mr. STOCKMAN submitted the following resolution, which was referred to the Committee on ______________
Whereas Lois G. Lerner, former Director, Exempt Organizations, Internal Revenue Service, has been found to be in contempt of Congress for willfully and intentionally refusing to comply with a congressional subpoena duly issued by the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, thereby obstructing the Congress in the lawful exercise of its constitutionally mandated legislative powers; and,
Whereas such behavior is an insult to the dignity of the House of Representatives, an attack upon the integrity of its proceedings, works violence upon the rights of the House collectively, and therefore implicates the long-recognized inherent power of the House to punish and commit for contempt, privileged under the Constitution; and,
Whereas recent history with similarly contumacious and insolent witnesses such as Eric Himpton Holder, Junior, strongly suggests that the present statutory judicial rubric set up to punish and reform such insubordinate and obstructionist witnesses would be ineffective in this case, as it is likely that the US Attorney for the District of Columbia would refuse to perform his lawful duty to bring the offending contemnor Lerner before a Grand Jury and prosecute the same for her misconduct pursuant to section 104 of the Revised Statutes of the United States (2 U.S.C. 194) and section 102 of the Revised Statutes of the United States (2 U.S.C. 192); and,
Whereas the executive and judicial branches’ prolonged and dawdling failure to prosecute Attorney General Holder’s insolent contempt of the 112th Congress strongly suggests that a like proceeding against contemnor Lerner would be similarly futile, and the threat of such prosecution has clearly been insufficient to encourage contemnor Lerner to be honest and candid with the Congress regarding the heinous actions of the Internal Revenue Service;
Now, therefore, be it Resolved, That the Speaker issue his warrant, directed to the Sergeant-at-Arms, or his deputy, commanding him to arrest and take into custody forthwith, wherever to be found, the body of Lois G. Lerner, and bring her to the bar of the House without delay to answer to the charge of contempt of its authority, breach of its privileges, and gross and wanton insult to the integrity of its proceedings, and in the meantime keep the body of Lerner in his custody in the common jail of the District of Columbia, subject to the further order of the House. While in custody, Lerner shall enjoy no special privileges beyond those extended to her fellow inmates, shall not access any computer or telephone, and shall not be visited by anyone other than her counsel, clergy, physician, or family.

A physicist may have solved string theory. No, not that string theory.
Robert Matthews, a visiting scientist at Aston University in Birmingham, England, has developed a mathematical theory that explains why headphones invariably tangle up into hopeless knots. It’s called the “Murphy's Law of String” or the “Loop Conjecture,” and it’s a phenomenon that has driven headphone users bonkers since before the Walkman was popular.
Matthews’ years of study suggest that clipping the two earbuds together, then attaching them to the end near the audio jack to form a loop, will cause a tenfold reduction in knot formation.
“First, by forming the loop you've effectively reduced the length of string able to explore the 3D space by 50 per cent, which makes a big difference.” Matthews said. “Second, you've also eliminated the two ends, which are the prime movers of knot formation.”
To test his theory, Matthews invited schools across England to participate in “the Great British Knot Experiment.” Participants compared different types of knots to determine which are the easiest to unravel. One school picked away at over 12,000 jumbled strings to provide data for Matthews’ predictions, he said.
Matthews, who has also studied why toast wants to fall butter side down, said he’s particularly satisfied that he was able to tie up the loose ends on headphone tangles.
“I hope it saves people a lot of grief,” he said.
He added that tangles are no trivial question for science. His work may help cast light on why DNA sometimes forms knotty mutations, and how knot formations in cancer cells can be undone with targeted drugs.

(CNSNews.com) – The Saudi government has responded heatedly to British media reports implying that the kingdom has a hand in funding the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIS). Instead it laid blame for the growth of terrorist-affiliated groups on “the lack of international involvement” in the Syrian civil war.
A statement released by the Saudi Embassy in London was evidently in response to claims made by a former head of Britain’s foreign intelligence agency, MI6, suggesting that the Sunni-ruled kingdom may be turning a blind eye to funding going to the Sunni jihadists.
The statement said Saudi Arabia “wishes to emphasize, once again, that it does not and has not supported, financially, morally or through any other means, the terrorist organization known as the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS), Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) and the Islamic caliphate nor has the kingdom supported any other terrorist network.”
“Despite having clarified this issue on numerous occasions, several inaccurate, misleading and distorted allegations, made by certain media outlets in the U.K., require us to do so again,” it continued.
The statement did not identify the offending reports, but British media outlets this week covered a speech by former MI6 chief Richard Dearlove, in which he pointed to Saudi Arabia as a likely source of funding.
Addressing the Royal United Services Institute, a London-based security think-tank, Dearlove said the Monday that the Saudis were “deeply attracted to any militancy that can effectively challenge Shia-dom.”
(ISIS’ two main enemies right now are Iraq’s Shi’ite-dominated government and the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, who belongs to the Shi’ite Allawite sect.)
“How much Saudi and Qatari money – now I’m not suggesting direct government funding, but I am suggesting maybe a blind eye being turned – is being channeled towards ISIS, and reaching it?” Dearlove asked.
“For ISIS to be able to surge into the Sunni areas of Iraq in the way that it has done recently has to be the consequence of substantial and sustained funding,” he said. “Such things simply do not happen spontaneously.”
