AMENPER:  La Constitución obsoleta según Obama

Autor:  Alberto Perez Amenper

We the white Gringos
Según un nuevo libro de Ken Vogel, Presidente Obama dijo a donantes democráticos que cree que está en una posición fuerte para dirigir el movimiento para ratificar una enmienda constitucional para derogar Citizens United.
Esto es lo que Obama dijo:
“La Corte Suprema hizo un fallo constitucional que estaba absolutamente equivocado, y que dije que estaba mal en un discurso del estado de unión
Frente a la Suprema Corte de justicia, “dijo, sonriendo con picardía, traté de castigar a los jueces en televisión una semana después de que ratificaron el derecho a existir a Citizens United.

“Porque” sabía lo que iba a pasar, dijo a los donantes. “Quiero decir, esto básicamente elimina todas las reglas.” Continuó, “porque es un fallo constitucional — un fallo en la primera enmienda, que no podemos revertir legislativamente, y hay límites a lo que podemos hacer administrativamente.

Hay algunas cosas que probablemente podría comportarse con la sentencia en cuanto a exigir la divulgación”.
Pero, agregó, “la divulgación no es un disuasivo suficiente para muchos de estas personas que están firmando cheques”. No, Obama continuó, “la única manera que vamos a hacerlo con eficacia, creo, es con una enmienda constitucional”. Obama siguió “Yo no juego con la Constitución “ligeramente”.

Pero creo que es importante que los ciudadanos debieran de conseguir movilizarse alrededor de este tema, y probablemente será un esfuerzo de varios años.
“Después de mi reelección, tengo la sensación es que puedo estar en una posición muy sólida para hacerlo.”

Este es el punto, Obama quiere jugar con la constitución “ligeramente”.

Quiere dejar un legado de que se puede ignorar la Constitución, de gobernar como un dictador ignorando la separación de poderes y enmendando la Constitución a su antojo.

Cuando usted quiere fundamentalmente transformar América, transforma la Constitución, pero si quiere que sea gradual, las tarjetas verdes pueden ayudar.

Concedido, la educación pública es una buena herramienta para la izquierda en estos tiempos, el pueblo con los presentes educadores no aprende la Constitución, aprende una versión socialista de la Constitución, sobre todo en la comunidad negra, pero los extranjeros son aún mejores porque no saben absolutamente nada de la Constitución.

Desconocimiento sus derechos como ciudadanos hace a los trabajadores extranjeros y los campesinos mucho más manejables. De ahí el interés de Obama de que se conviertan en una mayoría.

Algunos de ellos no hablan inglés y la mayoría no sabe leer o escribir en cursiva, que es como la Constitución fue escrita originalmente

Es una manera simple de transición de constitución reformada al comunismo.

Necesita resultados mucho más rápido y con una amplia amnistía nos llevará allí.

La cultura americana individualista es algo ajeno a los extranjeros al sur del Rio Grande dependientes por tradición de gobiernos paternalistas, y con la forma en que están las cosas ahora, no se les permitirá aprenderlo.

Dios mediante, mejor dicho, por medio de la filosofía de Marx, dentro de diez años todo lo que nuestros nuevos trabajadores estadounidenses y los negros sabrán sobre la Constitución es que es algún documento extranjero oscuro escrito por unos viejos gringos blancos, en una letra en cursiva que no se entiende lo que dice.

Rand Paul Wins! Senate Fails to pass Patriot Act Extension

The Senate blocked reauthorization of the Patriot Act early Saturday, and left for Memorial Day recess without a clear plan to reauthorize the bill before it expires May 31.

Senators rejected both a two-month extension of the bill the National Security Agency uses to justify its bulk collection of phone data, and a reform bill that would make phone companies responsible for keeping the data.

The House overwhelmingly passed the reform bill, the USA Freedom Act, and won’t be back in session until June 1. The Senate will return from recess and resume debate on the bill a week from Sunday, just hours before the Patriot Act expires.
“Do we really want this law to expire,” Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said on the Senate floor after the votes concluded around 1 a.m. Saturday morning. “We’ve got a week to discuss it. We’ll have one day to do it.”

“So we better be ready next Sunday afternoon to prevent the country from being endangered by the total expiration of the program that we’re all familiar with.”

Republican Sen. Rand Paul, who is running for president, and largely responsible for preventing the Senate from agreeing to even a 24-hour extension of the bill, lauded the delay. “I am proud to have stood up for the Bill of Rights,” he tweeted Saturday. “But our fight is not over.”

The USA Freedom Act would end the bulk collection of phone data by the NSA, and require the agency to obtain the data from individual companies on a case-by-case basis. Defense hawks worry that process would be dangerously cumbersome, and inadequate because companies are not required to keep the data.

And some critics, including Paul, say the bill does not fix the fundamental problem, which is allowing the government access to massive amounts of American’s phone data.

Black TV Executive Calls Obama A ‘White President In Black Face’

CHUCK ROSS

Media mogul and Entertainment Studios CEO Byron Allen unloaded on President Barack Obama over the weekend for not acting black enough.

“President Obama is, at this point, a white president in black face,” Allen, who is black, told TMZ.

“Black America would have done much better with a white president. You have let us down tremendously,” he continued.              The 53-year-old Allen, who has worked as a producer and talk show host, took Obama to task for publicly calling out the rioters and looters who descended on Baltimore last month after the death of Freddie Gray and for failing to improve conditions in the black community.

“I’m disappointed that President Obama called those young men out there in Baltimore ‘thugs,’” Allen told TMZ. “I’m not condoning violence, but I don’t think we should call them thugs because we’ve positioned them to fail, and the system has failed them.” (RELATED: Obama Refers To Baltimore Rioters As ‘Criminals And Thugs’)

“I say to President Obama, ‘You have to remember who you are. Don’t forget who you are.’”

“Check the numbers. Black people have fallen further behind under President Obama,” he continued. “We’re being murdered in the streets, we’re being murdered in the courtroom, we’re being murdered in the boardroom.”

“It’s OK to be the president of the United States and also be a black man.”

WATCH:

This is not the first time Allen has criticized Obama’s handling of race-related issues — nor is the first time that black leaders have accused him of not doing enough for the black community.

In an interview with The Daily Caller’s Patrick Howley in February, Allen criticized both Obama and civil rights leader Al Sharpton. (RELATED: Byron Allen Goes To War With Sharpton, Obama, Comcast For Future Of Black Media)

“President Obama, you control a couple billion dollars in advertising. What have you done to make sure African-American owned media is participating in government advertising?” Allen asked.

“We got more respect from President Clinton.”

Princeton University professor Cornell West, a former supporter of Obama’s, has become a sharp critic over the past several years. Referring to Obama during an interview with David Letterman in March, West said “Right now we live in an age of the sellouts.” (RELATED: Cornell West Goes Off On Obama: ‘We Live In The Age Of The Sellout’)

Developing Story: Dr. Ron Paul Reveals #1 Step to Prepare for America’s Next Big Crisis.04.10.2015     BY MICHAEL PALMER, STANSBERRY RESEARCH

Exclusive: Dr. Ron Paul issues alarming presentation on how U.S. Dollar will crash—and how to protect yourself.

WASHINGTON, D.C. – This is afascinating story with implications for every American…

Dr. Ron Paul–the former U.S. Presidential candidate and 22-year Congressional veteran–was briefly back in Washington, D.C., recently.

Dr. Paul was in the nation’s capital to educate Americans on what he believes our country’s next financial crisis will look like.

He says America is on the verge of a real “currency crisis”—the likes of which we have not seen in more than 50 years.

RELATED: Why America is NOT Normal – Dr. Ron Paul’s 8 facts prove how bad things really are

While in D.C., Dr. Paul announced that he’s found a way for citizens of every political party to prepare, including the specific steps you should take. He released a short video presentation to explain all the details. (You can watch it here.)

Few people in America today have Dr. Paul’s knowledge of the inner workings of both the government and the U.S. financial system…

After all, Dr. Paul spent more than two decades in Congress. He served on the House Banking Committee and the Committee on Foreign Affairs.

He sponsored more than 600 legislative bills. He met with every President of the past 40 years and every Fed Chairman. He spent thousands of hours in top secret, closed-door meetings.

SEE ALSO: Dr. Ron Paul Describes Exactly What America’s Next Crisis Will Look Like

And Dr. Paul believes a major currency crisis is coming to America… sooner than most people think.

During his recent visit in Washington, he said:

“The way you live, work, travel, retire, and invest in America… everything is going to change. Some of it in ways most people do not expect. This period is going to be particularly tough on seniors and anyone relying on a fixed income, or money from the government.”

“Trouble is coming—please make sure you, your family, and anyone you care about are prepared.”

That’s why Dr. Paul recently worked to help put together a short video presentation that explains the #1 first step every American should take to prepare for America’s next, inevitable crisis.

I strongly suggest you take a look at this fascinating piece Dr. Paul has prepared.

You may have seen many of Dr. Ron Paul’s interviews, speeches, and Congressional testimony over the years…

But I guarantee you’ve never seen him quite like this.

Here’s Everything We Learned From The Hillary Emails

CHUCK ROSS

With its Friday dump — on Memorial Day weekend, no less — the State Department ensured that Hillary Clinton’s 296 Libya-related emails would receive limited news coverage.

But the records are well worth reviewing because they contain important insight into Clinton and her top aides’ views on Libya and Benghazi leading up to the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, which killed four Americans.

Here are the 13 most interesting exchanges.

Fernando: The real reason Hillary Clinton is in trouble

It’s not simply her email problems

Illustration on general dislike for Hillary Clinton by Linas Garsys/The Washington Times more

By Monica Crowley – – Wednesday, March 11, 2015

The big revelation from the latest Clinton scandals is not that the former president and his wife are corrupt, low-rent, grabby, greedy, serial liars.

Everyone already knows that.

No, the revelation is the exposure of the dirtiest little secret of them all:

No one likes her.

This is the hard truth that has popped up like a vicious migraine: No one — not even many of her fellow Democrats and leftists in the mainstream media — likes her very much. Her negative poll numbers (particularly on issues of honesty and trustworthiness) have always been high, except during much of her tenure as secretary of state. But her negatives are now back with a vengeance.

Mrs. Clinton does have a core constituency, mostly unmarried women who consider her some sort of feminist heroine. And she is perennially on Gallup’s list of most admired women, mostly for her steeliness in the face of deep personal humiliation. But admiration does not translate necessarily into affection, and her core support, always narrow, is growing narrower by the day.

Few politicians have engendered as much distrust, exhaustion and flat-out loathing as Bill and Hillary Clinton. Few have been as polarizing. President Obama is in their league, but he’s on his way out. The Clintons could very well be the future, given her stone-cold ambition to be president, which is why her abiding unlikeability may be her ultimate undoing.

Successful politicians work hard to build up reservoirs of goodwill — with their party, other branches of government, the media and the American people — so when the crud hits the fan (and it always does), they can tap into that goodwill to, they hope, carry them through the difficulties.

Mr. Clinton invested real time in creating a charming, rakish public persona to mask his dark and calculating sides. It paid off: When multiple scandals from Whitewater to Monica Lewinsky to impeachment hit, the goodwill he had cultivated buffered the assault. A healthy economy didn’t hurt, either.

Mrs. Clinton never had the patience to dress up the malevolent parts of her personality. It was a function of her narcissism and elitist mindset: She knows best, and the burden is on you to see it. She couldn’t be bothered with putting on a show.

The implosion of former New York Gov. Eliot Spitzer should have served as a cautionary tale. When the self-proclaimed “[bleeping] steamroller” rolled into a prostitution scandal, he didn’t have a single defender. Why? No one likes an obnoxious, abusive jerk. Granted, he had won office, demonstrating that likeability is neither necessary nor sufficient to getting elected. But it’s indispensable when it all goes south.

Mrs. Clinton is now in the Spitzer-zone. Very few people have been willing to go to bat for her. Some Democrats have offered tepid support, leaving her with only two surrogates, James Carville and Lanny Davis, both of whom are also covered in the crusty old Clinton mud.

The dynamic changed when Democratic Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California appeared on “Meet the Press” and encouraged Mrs. Clinton to “step up” and address the email issue. That was the Goldwater-goes-to-Nixon moment. Mrs. Clinton then held a blink-and-you-missed-it “press conference,” in which she proved that there is no “new Hillary.” There’s just the same old Hillary: imperious, entitled, thin-skinned.

Meanwhile, the media — many of whom have never liked her — have pounced. The New York Times broke the email story, and it, along with other left-leaning news outlets, continues to cover it, as well as the shadowy foreign donations that have flowed into the Clinton Foundation. The Associated Press has now filed suit to force the release of her emails and government documents.

Of course, none of them are pursuing her with the same verve they’d be pursuing a Republican accused of similar things. But they are covering the story because they smell blood. Until now, she has benefited from the lack of a credible alternative. Politics is an unpredictable game, though, and if she’s bloodied and limping, she will no longer look like the strong horse, increasing the odds of a more progressive challenger.

Mrs. Clinton is still the prohibitive favorite to win the Democratic nomination. She may even be a better candidate than she was in 2008, although her handling of these scandals doesn’t bode well.

The Clintons have long been regarded as tornadoes blowing through other peoples’ lives, leaving wakes of lies, tortured explanations and destruction in their paths. Do the Democrats want to relive all this? Do the American people? They might suck it up for someone they like and respect. But for her? Meh.

This ominous storm gathers around a candidacy that doesn’t yet formally exist. Imagine the F5 tornado to hit once she formally announces, when so few are willing to stand with her in the center of the storm.

Watch: What This Black Celebrity Just Called Obama Would Surely Set Cities On Fire If He Were White

Byron Allen – Watch More Celebrity Videos or Subscribe

Have you seen the streets erupt in violence…?

Norvell Rose 

Try to imagine what would happen if a white, conservative celebrity with a high profile in Hollywood called Barack Obama “a white president in blackface.” It would likely be quite easy to conjure up images of cities on fire over the incendiary remark — massive crowds turning violent, arson and looting, enraged protestors confronting police in a nationwide display of intense disgust at the insult to the first black President of the United States.

So, have you seen the streets erupt in violence since a black comedian and TV producer uttered those five inflammatory words about Obama: “a white president in blackface?” No, you haven’t witnessed any mass display of outrage or any widespread demand for an apology or any insistence that the celebrity be stripped of power and prestige. You haven’t seen that Byron Allen — founder of the TV production company Entertainment Studios — has been chastised, chastened or disgraced.

RELATED STORIES

As The Daily Mail reports, the 54-year-old Detroit native gave a rambling sidewalk interview that was obtained by TMZ in which he blasted Obama for not doing enough to help the African American population in the United States. Not only did Allen fire off the “blackface” remark, he also cut loose with the stinging criticism that “black America would have done much better with a white president.”

A Hillary Clinton Match-Up With Marco Rubio Is a Scary Thought for Democrats

By JEREMY W. PETERSMAY 22, 2015

WASHINGTON — They use words like “historic” and “charismatic,” phrases like “great potential” and “million-dollar smile.” They notice audience members moved to tears by an American-dream-come-true success story. When they look at the cold, hard political math, they get uneasy.

An incipient sense of anxiety is tugging at some Democrats — a feeling tersely captured in four words from a blog post written recently by a seasoned party strategist in Florida: “Marco Rubio scares me.”

What is so unnerving to them at this early phase of the 2016 presidential campaign still seems, at worst, a distant danger: the prospect of a head-to-head general-election contest between Mr. Rubio, the Republican senator from Florida, and Hillary Rodham Clinton.

Political Memo: Hillary Clinton, Acutely Aware of Pitfalls, Avoids Press on Campaign TrailMAY 22, 2015

Marco Rubio Builds Political Career on Defying Establishment and OddsAPRIL 12, 2015

Who Is Running for President (and Who’s Not)?JAN. 30, 2015

Yet the worriers include some on Mrs. Clinton’s team. And even former President Bill Clinton is said to worry that Mr. Rubio could become the Republican nominee, whittle away at Mrs. Clinton’s support from Hispanics and jeopardize her chances of carrying Florida’s vital 29 electoral votes.

 

What Marco Rubio Would Need to Do to Win

Democrats express concerns not only about whether Mr. Rubio, 43, a son of Cuban immigrants, will win over Hispanic voters, a growing and increasingly important slice of the electorate. They also worry that he would offer a sharp generational contrast to Mrs. Clinton, a fixture in American politics for nearly a quarter-century who will turn 69 before the election.

As her supporters recall, Barack Obama beat Mrs. Clinton for the nomination in the 2008 elections after drawing similar contrasts himself.

Patti Solis Doyle, who ran Mrs. Clinton’s presidential campaign for most of the 2008 contest, said Mr. Rubio “could have the ability to nip away at the numbers for the Democrats.”

Ms. Doyle, the first Hispanic woman to manage a presidential campaign, added that Mr. Rubio could allow Republicans to regain a “reasonable percentage” of the Hispanic vote. In 2012, just 27 percent of Hispanics voted for the Republican candidate, Mitt Romney.

Mr. Rubio “is a powerful speaker,” Ms. Doyle added. “He is young. He is very motivational. He has a powerful story.”

Recognizing how essential it is to win Hispanic support, Mrs. Clinton has gone further in laying out an immigration policy than she has on almost any other issue, saying that she would extend greater protections to halt deportations of people in the United States illegally. She has also hired a former undocumented immigrant to lead her Latino outreach efforts.

Her own strategists, their allies in the “super PACs” working on her behalf and the Democratic Party all say they see plenty of vulnerabilities in Mr. Rubio’s record and his views. And they are trying to shape the perception people have of him while polls show that he is still relatively unknown: Yes, the Democratic National Committee said in a recent memo, Mr. Rubio was a fresh face, but one “peddling a tired playbook of policies that endanger our country, hurt the middle class, and stifle the American dream.”

So far, Democrats who have combed over Mr. Rubio’s voting record in the Senate have seized on his opposition to legislation raising the minimum wage and to expanding college loan refinancing, trying to cast him as no different from other Republicans.

The subtext: He may be Hispanic, but he is not on the side of Hispanics when it comes to the issues they care about.

 

What Hillary Clinton Would Need to Do to Win

 

Democrats will try to use Mr. Rubio’s youth and four-year career in national politics against him, depicting him as green or naïve — a liability at a time when unrest abroad is a top concern. “A Dan Quayle without the experience,” suggested Christopher Lehane, a veteran strategist who has worked for the Clintons.

Bill Richardson, the former governor of New Mexico, who is of Mexican heritage, said Democrats would also make an issue of Mr. Rubio’s mixed record on how to overhaul the immigration system: He initially supported a Senate bill to grant people in the United States illegally a path to citizenship, but he later backed down.

Mr. Richardson said that would poison his chances with Hispanic voters. “His own Hispanic potential would defeat him,” he said.

It is also unclear how much Mr. Rubio would appeal to Puerto Ricans, Mexicans and other voters with Latin American ancestry who may not feel much cultural affinity with a Cuban-American.

Still, when many Democrats assess Mr. Rubio’s chances, as nearly a dozen of them did for this article, they put him in the top tier of potential candidates who concern them the most, along with former Gov. Jeb Bush, another Floridian who is courting Hispanics, and Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin.

Mr. Rubio’s heritage and his youth could be particularly dangerous to Mrs. Clinton, they said. Each of those points could help neutralize one of her biggest strengths: the opportunity to help elect the first female president, and the experience Mrs. Clinton gained as secretary of state.

Mr. Rubio already appears to be pursuing that strategy. By calling himself a candidate of the “21st century, not the 20th,” he seeks both to turn Mrs. Clinton’s long career against her and to entice voters who may desire a change of direction.

In Florida, Democrats who have watched Mr. Rubio’s rise warn against playing down his strengths.

Former Gov. Charlie Crist, who lost to Mr. Rubio in a 2010 Senate race after dropping his Republican Party affiliation, said he admired how Mr. Rubio told the story of his immigrant parents — his mother a maid, his father a bartender — and how they worked hard so that he could succeed. “It’s hard to get more compelling than that,” Mr. Crist said.

SEE ALL COMMENTSJohn Morgan, a major Democratic donor in Florida who will hold a fund-raiser for Mrs. Clinton next week, said he planned to raise the issue of Mr. Rubio’s strengths with her.

“Jim Messina talks about how elections are about where we want to go from here,” Mr. Morgan said, naming the strategist who helped President Obama win two national elections. What is problematic about Mr. Rubio, he said, is “his theme will be, ‘We don’t want to go back; we need to go forward.’ ”

“I think they do underestimate him,” Mr. Morgan added. “He’s energetic, he’s photogenic, and he will say whatever you want him to say.”

Steve Schale, the Florida strategist who wrote the “Marco Rubio scares me” blog post, said that when he worked for the Democratic leader of the Florida House of Representatives, his boss, Dan Gelber, had a saying about Mr. Rubio’s effect on crowds, and about his sincerity: “Young women swoon, old women pass out, and toilets flush themselves.”

And Mr. Gelber himself recalled the day in Tallahassee, Fla., in 2008 when he and Mr. Rubio, then the speaker of the State House, gave their farewell speeches. He spoke first, followed by Mr. Rubio, as Mr. Gelber’s wife looked on.

“She’s sitting there weeping,” Mr. Gelber recalled, still incredulous. “And I look up, and I mouth, ‘Are you kidding me?’ ”

Mr. Gelber praised Mr. Rubio’s ability to use his family’s story to convey compassion for people marginalized by society, but he said he believed, as many Democrats do, that this was disingenuous.

“It’s a little maddening when his policies are so inconsistent with that,” Mr. Gelber said. “My head would explode.”

A Rubio-Clinton contest could ultimately come down to Florida. Republicans can ill afford to lose the state if they hope to win the White House. And bleeding Hispanic votes could make Mrs. Clinton’s path much harder.

“Losing a point among whites means winning Hispanics by about 5 percent more just to make up that loss,” Mr. Schale wrote in his memo on Florida’s election demographics. If Democrats continue to lose white voters, he added, Mr. Rubio’s place on the ballot would only complicate matters.

“He should be the one you don’t want to face,” Mr. Schale wrote.

Correction: May 22, 2015 

An earlier version of this article referred incorrectly to former Gov. Charlie Crist’s loss in the 2010 United States Senate race in Florida. Mr. Crist lost to Marco Rubio in the general election, not in the Republican primary.
