Barack Obama's Wars

Via Power Line:
President Obama Makes War on American Intelligence Professionals

Holder's politically-motivated "investigation" has now been going on for over two years. The CIA employees who tried to defend their country, strictly following the advice they were given by Holder's own Department of Justice, are left wondering whether they will face criminal prosecution. This is an absolute outrage, and it is Barack Obama's fault. If he doesn't think that federal employees should go to jail for defending this country to the best of their abilities, consistent with the legal advice they were given by the Department of Justice, he should get a new Attorney General. Since he hasn't done so, we can only conclude that Obama is deliberately making war on America's intelligence community.
President Obama "Declares War on American Energy Workers"

All presidents deal with tough circumstances; it is the nature of the job. But we expect them to try, at least, to make things better for the United States and its citizens. When a president favors Brazilian workers over American workers, and puts American taxpayers' dollars behind that preference, what are we to conclude?

President Obama's Stealth War On Israel

The continuing influence of Obama’s pro-Palestinian sentiments is the best way to make sense of the president’s recent tilt away from Israel. This is why supporters of Israel should fear Obama’s reelection. In 2013, with his political vulnerability a thing of the past, Obama’s pro-Palestinian sympathies would be released from hibernation, leaving Israel without support from its indispensable American defender.
President Obama's War On The Rule Of Law

Punishing enemies and rewarding friends — politics Chicago style — seems to be the unifying principle that helps explain the Obamacare waivers, the NLRB action against Boeing, and the IRS’s gift-tax assault on 501(c)(4) donors.

They look like examples of crony capitalism, bailout favoritism, and gangster government.

And they don’t look like the rule of law.

President Obama's Stealth War On The Second Amendment

On March 30, the 30th anniversary of the assassination attempt on President Ronald Reagan, Jim Brady, who sustained a debilitating head wound in the attack, and his wife, Sarah, came to Capitol Hill to push for a ban on the controversial “large magazines.” Brady, for whom the law requiring background checks on handgun purchasers is named, then met with White House press secretary Jay Carney. During the meeting, President Obama dropped in and, according to Sarah Brady, brought up the issue of gun control, “to fill us in that it was very much on his agenda,” she said.

“I just want you to know that we are working on it,” Brady recalled the president telling them. “We have to go through a few processes, but under the radar.”
