Opinion – President Obama Takes On the Prison Crisis – Editorial – The New York Times – John Gelmini

Dr Alf is right to flag this NYT editorial but there’s another view.

President Obama is a lame duck President who did nothing to reduce the prison population in the first 4 years of his presidency, nothing to close down Guantanamo Bay, and nothing during the 3 years of this presidency in this regard.

As Dr Alf may know, President Obama has spent a fortune of American taxpayers money on stopping lawyers and others who dispute the authenticity of his birth certificate from impeaching him and removing him from office.

He dithers on Foreign affairs and refuses to take effective action against ISIS against the advice of his own generals. He is at best a disappointment and matters he failed to address will have to be dealt with by others.

He and those who support him need to weigh the future consequences when considering his so called “legacy” and people will need to choose a leader of the “Free World” to succeed him who is actually up to the job.

Opinion – A brief history of United States Courts v. Barack Obama – The Washington Post – John Gelmini

President Obama has not been backward in coming forward when it comes to using the American courts to silence critics, including many of those who have tried to have him impeached on the basis that his birth certificate is fake, that he was and is a citizen of Kenya and therefore not entitled under the US Constitution to be US President at all.

As Dr Alf knows the American courts have been used by President Obama to extend his pet causes and his power during the period which represents his “lame duck” status.

This article from the Washington Post represents the latest episodes of his attempts to circumvent the power of his political adversaries who would otherwise thwart his current attempts to get his own way.
