Letter: Obama leaving mark worldwide

Congratulations Mr. Obama: that Al-Qaeda you and Hillary have on the run has just taken over four cities in Iraq thanks to your leadership style, which is to say, no leadership at all.

Just announce we are out of there to the world and then leave. Afghanistan will be next.

And your great leadership on our own southern border? It's wide open, thousands of children swarming in with no parents directly caused by your lawlessness, putting out the lies that if children (18 and under) just get here, they can stay and their parents can follow.

You forgot the part that it's still illegal to come here illegally and the border patrol has not the manpower, supplies or facilities to take care of this up to 100,000 and rising influx of children, many with measles, chicken pox, scabies and MSRA.

Your "dreamers" amnesty has Central American newspapers running stories that once here, children will be fed, schooled, taught English, welcomed with open arms and their parents will be able to follow.

As you shove your Fox-Piven/Cloward plan to overwhelm our society with Third World country citizens, your plan is godless and inhumane.

As your own pampered girls go to the Sidwell School, wear designer clothes, have you no shame for these Central American children, often given over to coyotes and cartels to get them here?

Many will be molested and abused and some will die along the way. And there's no end in sight. The Central American countries have heard one word from you - amnesty. You said it and they are coming.

Meanwhile, as the overwhelmed border patrol plays nursemaid, no one is watching the border. Islamic terrorists such as Hamas and Hezbollah are working with the Mexican drug cartels to enter our country from the south.

Were this a Republican president, we would have run him out of office by now. Shame on you liberals who continue to defend his lawlessness.

The two fold answer. Secure the border now and impeach this president.

Linda Athens

President Obama will leave office on Jan. 20, 2017, a new president will be sworn in, and the birther's can retire or find some new conspiracy theory to wonder and worry about! My best guess is they are habitual worry warts, would not be happy unless they had some strange conspiracy to dwell on to fill their days and terrify their nights! Historians will no doubt write of them in general, but only as foot notes in history as folks who lack a few marbles, on the other hand Obama will go down in history as one of our many presidents, all presidents had folks who disliked them or loved them or were neutral!

Article comment by: End Times .....

I could only shake my head at statements during the past several years from some of the most prestigious Christian leaders, that prophecies contained in the biblical book of Ezekiel (Chapter 38) were about to be fulfilled. That would have required all of Israel's surrounding adversaries except Iran to be at peace with them, all separating walls to be torn down, a vast military force on horseback to be assembled out of Iran and Russia, and Benjamin Netanyahu to be Messiah! Now I am certainly not here to discount prophecies - such as those pertaining to Jesus' birth and life on earth. But when we go from the mouth of God to the imaginations of people as to their fulfillment.....I am going to recourse to that early-morning mug of fine English tea, and think for myself.

Latest poll numbers show that an overwhelming majority do NOT trust Obama to handle the country anymore. They believe that he is a liar and has no ability to handle foreign affairs. Finally! the blinders are beginning to come off. Someday, when the history books objectively weigh this Presidency, I have no doubt that Obama will go down as one of the worst if not the worst President this country has ever had the misfortune to have.

“Very little of my information ever comes from Fox News.”

Odd how over the past four weeks you have referenced stories appearing on Fox News a total 19 times. And that is after years of your saying you “never” watch it.

“We are in the end times. No doubt about that...We are there.”

Ah yes, I remember back in the 1950’s people walking around carrying signs “The end is near!” They were funny. Gotta love it. Thanks for the laugh.

Very little of my information ever comes from Fox News. I watch them if there is someone on (like Dick Cheney) I want to hear. I watch CNN as often if not more often but I watch C-Span the most....when I watch at all. I am a reader and radio nut, not a big TV fan.

Right now an ass't pastor from LHC is on the Gary Shelar show on the end times about what is REALLY happening around Israel right now. You won't get that on Fox, CNN or anywhere else except Pastor Hagee on a Christian TV channel.

We are in the end times. No doubt about that. If you don't think the "signs" are here right now around Israel, the Four Blood Moons, the ISIS group and the Syrian border, etc.

Non-Christians (and many Christians) ignoring these signs is all predicted also. We are there.

@L.A. Why do you pass on the lies from fox news? Read both sides of the issues, then make up your mind.

Watching Dr Ben Carson speak and then take many questions at the National Press Corps, what an absolutely magnificent person this man is I must say.

Common sense, logic, everything needed to run a government run amok with stupidity, dumb decisions, no logic at all.

His tax plan makes sooooooooo much sense. Never over 37% for all taxes for anybody. Everybody pays something. You make a lot, you pay a lot, you make a little, you pay a little. That way it isn't us against them, everyone is in the game where they can afford it.

Health care? Obamacare is completely unsustainable so it is out. He has websites that explain all his own plans but anytime you get a huge government entity in the middle between patient and Dr, entities so big you cannot even put your finger on the problems, it is time to bail out of that one.

Raised very poor, at 4 his Mother discovering her husband was a bigamist, they divorced. Raising two sons, she would not allow herself to become a victim. Cleaning from 5AM to after midnight, often she took the boys to farms, knocked, asked if she picked four bushels for the farmer, could she keep one? They always said yes.

And she made Ben read and he also has a Bible story for every situation. I do love this man. President Benjamin Carson.

Lip service Christians is pretty much the sum total of majority of republicans aka tea partier's if Jesus were here today, he would be on our southern border, aiding and abetting the poor illegal immigrants and the lip service right wingers would be demanding he be arrested, jailed and crucified!

As I've said before, these Christians only pick and chose those parts of the bible they want to apply. All those other things in there are pure speculation and/or subject to one's interpretation. Apply a small portion, rub and repeat!

@AS

“We are told in the Bible…”

Oh good grief. More of that “poor maligned Christian” nonsense.

We are also told in Bible to not wear clothing made of different cloths – and to never cut your hair or shave – and to kill anyone who speaks ill of their parents – and to kill both a man and woman who commit adultery – and a couple having sex during the woman’s menses must be banished – and psychics must be stoned to death – and deformed people cannot go to God’s altar.

“Why is it you don't want to recognize the Evil that is prevailing in todays world???”

Oh, believe me, I do recognize that evil in the form of nattering busybodies who want to interfere in the lives of anyone with whom they disagree. THOSE are the most evil of people on Earth.

aa:

Let me set you straight. The Fox interviewer, Megyn Kelly was being fair and balanced. You, being a leftie, wouldn't even recognize what that is obviously.

Then Cheney and Liz set her straight in no uncertain terms and did we hear an earful.

Small wonder you left that out because the real truth must hurt so badly for those on the dark side. And Cheney very carefully explained the real truth about Iraq. And it WAS an earful.

Are you completely disconnected from the real world. People on the left are running for cover as obama has the lowest marks ever, noone but NOONE on either side trusts him in any area.

You aren't aware of those polls? Hard core lefties saying they are going down?

The Tea Party is just fine. Too bad you on the left simply accept every rotten thing given you by this POTUS.

"We" are told in the Bible "beware of false prophets

"We" are also told "Thou shall not worship any other God before me

Why do people like you figure you speak for everyone, I don't share your ideologies so please don't speak for me.

"Christian teaching doesn't tell us to accept evil and support it, but to turn from it and fight against it."

So I ask again, "So at what point do you suggest we start rounding up people in Kingman for looking like they may be related to Islam?" We may lose a bunch of medical professionals if you do so.

Another Thought,

We are told in the Bible "beware of false prophets", We are also told "Thou shall not worship any other God before me" which is the first of the ten commandments.

Why is it that people like you always want the Christians to lie down, roll over and play dead when it comes to standing up for Good VS Evil.
Why is it you don't want to recognize the Evil that is prevailing in todays world???
Christian teaching doesn't tell us to accept evil and support it, but to turn from it and fight against it.

Article comment by: funny thing, but it's not funny .....

If someone with Christian sympathies uses the term "holy war" towards Muslims, it's scandalous. Meanwhile, Muslims are killing and driving from their homes millions of Christians wherever Islam has achieved a significant percentage of the population. The briefest overview of history reveals the "dhimmi" 2nd class citizenship generally afforded Christians under Islamic rule in best-case scenarios. So who is waging holy war on whom here? Personally, I am getting sick and tired of having the defence of one's property, values, and even life characterized in maniacal terms. The true maniacs are those who are comfortable amidst our ruin.

Republicans are busy dining on one another in a cannibalistic feast, the tea party is nothing but a band of angry republicans whom got disappointed by Bush Jr/Cheney era, its no mere coincidence they formed post Bush/Cheney era, and yesterday was priceless when Cheney/daughter were interviewed on their new movement and got castigated by the fox interviewer, a deep division exists in the right wing movement, so all this talk of impeachment of Obama is a bit amusing at best!

"It Is A Holy War and OB is & has been on wrong side all this time."

So at what point do you suggest we start rounding up people in Kingman for looking like they may be related to Islam? Have you thrown out your "Christen Loving Values" to take on this feat?

Received call this A.M. from senate conservative group and was told the House is doing article of Impeachment on OB. Will have to do some checking but, this will certainly send a message to rest of world that Americans are a strong people we just have a lawless, out of control administration but, as a true democracy we have the means to change our admin. when the supposed commander in chief is a liar and his actions are detrimental to the people as a whole.
When he is impeached other countries will look at America with more respect and know our constitution Does work for the Good of the people as a whole. They are only seeing us as weak and laughable under this current admin. as he aids and abets the Taliban, who just cut off the fingers of 11 Afghanistans for voting and killing others. Yet we have gone in and encouraged these countries to become like us while our own Pres. negotiates with Taliban and trades one human for five of theirs.
As Obama declared "we are not nor will we ever be at war with Islam". He can speak for himself but, that's exactly who and what this fighting has been about since 9-11---It Is A Holy War and OB is & has been on wrong side all this time.
Ob does not, never has liked American exceptionalism and got in pos. only to destroy it!!!!

“Since as an athiest, you believe God does not exist, there is no way you can possibly believe in the concept of ‘sin’.”

You have never met me, not do you know me and yet you come here spewing nonsense about my being an “athiest” whatever that is. You have been told many times before that I am not a Christian ,but I am a member of one of the oldest religions in the world.

“@AN…She was at my door with a petition just last week…Now prove i am lying…She and i first met on a plane to D.C….Now prove i am lying.”

I don’t need to. Ms Athens has done so.

And now that we know what you are all of your previous comments and anything in the future will be ignored because of a complete lack of veracity.

As you are so fond of saying – “LOL!”

Good-bye.

Article comment by: we should be talking about Bolivia right now.....

It may be that one scandal under Obama's misrule is being used to cloak another (like the massacres taking place in Ukraine), but we should be looking southward, where 133 nations are gathered in La Paz to discuss "a whole new paradigm" for world rule. And why, pray tell, has the media left us without a clue about this historic event? (You can begin your own search by Googling "Group of 77", although finding anything resembling daily reports of events and pronouncements will be more work)

Besides, why would she have to answer to you anyway?

FYI:

John Kerry on going into Iraq: "no question in my mind that Saddam Hussein has to be toppled one way or another".

VP Joe Biden: “Saddam either has to be separated from his weapons or taken out of power."

Former Secy of State Hillary Clinton: Cast her vote for war authorization "WITH CONVICTION". Her words.

They unanimously voted to go - then started speaking of abandoning the mission. I believe you just accused McCain of that.

Speaking before the CFR, Hillary bemoaned the dreadful deterioration of the situation which she herself played a part in engineering.

From Benghazi, she armed the Syrian terrorists who have bled over into Iraq, those weapons now in ISIS hands, then left our men to die so noone would find out, swore those there to secrecy, sent many to far away outposts demoted many to shut them up.

Now she says she couldn't know the extent of the ISIS destruction, except her and obama were repeatedly warned to leave a contingency there, at the least get a Status of Forces Agreement as Bush did. Neither was done. We announced, then most left.

The Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agcy warned them the "ISIS probably will attempt to take territory in Iraq and Syria...." They ignored it

@UNC

“I will take this as an admission on your part, that Obama has committed crimes, maybe just not impeachable ones…”

Of course you are perfectly welcome to make such an asinine leap in judgment, but it proves nothing. As usual.

AN-

"Oh, and BTW, Obama will never be impeached because he has done nothing rising to the level demanding impeachment. "

Thank you. I will take this as an admission on your part, that Obama has committed crimes, maybe just not impeachable ones (that we know of or are perhaps yet to proved).
