Nerobama Fiddled For Five Days While Colorado Burned

June 27, 2012 7:48 pm 1 comment

Do you remember how the Democrat/Media Complex eviscerated George W. Bush for allegedly failing to take a more active role in dealing with the Hurricane Katrina disaster? Never mind that government at the state and local levels — as well as at the federal — should have acted in a more prompt and competent manner to ease the suffering of the storm’s victims, especially in the New Orleans area. The left and its captive media stenographers put all the blame at the feet of then-President Bush.

Contrast that situation with the current one in Colorado. Wildfires of “epic proportions” in the Waldo Canyon area of Colorado Springs have forced 32,000 residents from their homes as 15,324 acres are ablaze with only 5 percent containment. Even more alarming is the fact that the size of the area being incinerated doubled overnight from Tuesday to Wednesday.

What has been the reaction of the White House to the raging wildfires? After attending his 100th fundraiser of the year Monday night in Boston, President Obama was hitting up wealthy Democrat donors at four more events in Florida Tuesday. Only on Wednesday, more than six days after the fires began to ravage Colorado, did the president finally get around to calling Governor John Hickenlooper and Colorado Springs mayor Steve Bach to get briefed on the situation. Obama has now scheduled a visit to the state and directed federal officials to help. By way of contrast, Bush had declared a federal emergency and mobilized federal agencies fully two days before Katrina made landfall. There is, however, much more to the current problem than simply Obama’s five days of apparent indifference. Once again, the left’s green agenda rears its ugly head.

No matter what Bush did to try to ease the pain inflicted by Katrina on New Orleans, the knock on him from the left was that he didn’t show what his critics determined was the proper amount of concern for the hurricane victims. Yet there hasn’t been even a whisper from the corrupt media regarding Obama’s Johnny-come-lately approach to the fires and those who have been displaced and lost their homes in the Colorado Springs area. He has been obsessed lately with raising campaign cash, taking only a little time away from campaign activities to scarf down chili dogs and squeeze in another round of golf between the fundraisers.

If you recall that Obama’s response to the 2011 Texas wildfires that burned more than 2.2. million acres in the Lone Star State was to deny requests for a disaster declaration and federal assistance, then his reaction to the Colorado fires appears to be an improvement. But for more than five full days, the president fiddled while Colorado burned.

  • the truth is Josh that Pres. Barack Hussein Obama cares nothing for anyone but himself. over the last few years since he has become our elected dictator he has shown a lack of caring for anyone.

    I certainly hope that this the last year that we will suffer under the rule of Obama.

    Judge To Christians: Celebrate Gay Weddings Or Go To Jail

    An administrative judge has ruled Christians must now celebrate sodomy, or face jail.

    Spreading “civil rights commissions” in most cities and states are turning toward anti-Christian persecution, when Democrats and Judges rule that homosexual “rights” take precedence over Religious Freedom to opt out.

    Such was the case last week, when a pro-gay Judge in Colorado supported a pro-gay “rights” commission to enforce a Democrat non-discrimination law that openly punishes Christians.

    Jack Phillips, a Christian baker, was deemed to have no First Amendment protections, no right to protest, no free speech, no freedom of religion. Instead he was warned by Judge Robert N. Spencer that he must personally help celebrate homosexual “wedding” ceremonies or face $500 fines per future incident or jail.

    Why A Republican Governor Vetoed Religious Freedom

    Before the Arizona Governor Jan Brewer (RINO-AZ) vetoed a religious freedom bill that would have protected Christian business owners, she was warned not to embrace the homosexual agenda by nearly a dozen law professors.

    “Nearly a dozen leading law professors from Harvard, Stanford, George Mason, Notre Dame and other top institutions across America have endorsed the controversial legislation in Arizona that would strengthen the state’s religious-rights standards,” reports WND.

    The bill has been egregiously misrepresented by many of its critics,” the professors said in a letter to Brewer. “We write because we believe that you should make your decision on the basis of accurate information.

    Dueling Boycotts: Christians vs. ‘Gays’ And Mozilla vs. World Vision

    In recent weeks two dueling boycotts have forced leaders to resign their jobs.

    First the Christian charity World Vision endorsed homosexual “marriage” and faced a severe backlash by Christians. The corporation quickly repented, and issued a statement reversing their policy and returning to “Biblical Authority” for Jesus’ Matthew 19 definition of marriage as valid only between one man and one woman.

    A pro-homosexual board member, Jacqueline Fuller was forced to resign, and now World Vision has fully returned to the Christian faith. The Christian boycott has ended, and it is now safe again for Christians to donate to World Vision.

    However, all is not well, since other companies are now persecuting Christian leaders.

    National Right To Life leader endorses “Brady’s Law” in Colorado

    If you’re an insider to the pro-life movement, you recognize the potential divide between “incrementalist” pro-lifers who want to make abortions harder to do, and “personhood” pro-lifers who want to ban all abortions beginning at conception.

    I just conducted a news-making interview that may help bridge the pro-life divide.

    Carol Tobias, president of the National Right To Life Committee (NRLC), was just interviewed on our TV show PIJN NEWS and we discussed our differences.

    Carol then endorsed Colorado’s ballot initiative, Amendment 67, “Brady’s Law” that would protect children beginning at conception, giving them legal status if killed by a criminal.

    ‘They Are Slaughtering Us Like Chickens’: Muslim Persecution Of Christians, December 2013

    As happens at Christmas every year throughout the Muslim world, Christians and their churches were especially targeted—from jihadi terror strikes killing worshippers, to measures by Muslim authorities restricting Christmas celebrations. Some incidents follow:

    Iraq: “Militants” reported the Associated Press, “targeted Christians in three separate Christmas Day bombings in Baghdad, killing at least 37 people, officials said Wednesday. In one attack, a car bomb went off near a church in the capital’s southern Dora neighborhood, killing at least 26 people and wounding 38, a police officer said. Earlier, two bombs ripped through a nearby outdoor market simultaneously in the Christian section of Athorien, killing 11 people and wounding 21.”
