Obama pivots to spanish language television after failures on budget, guns, healthcare

President Obama failureThe President is scheduled for sit-down interviews with Spanish language television networks Telemundo and Univision in an attempt to refocus American’s attention from his failures on the budget and gun control and the growing negative view Americans have on Obamacare.

President Obama is likely to focus on immigration reform – something that is much more likely to yield bi-partisan support than most of the items he focused on during his two terms. The White House is confident that growing numbers of Hispanic voters, many who watch Spanish language television, will help to pressure Congress into passing an immigration reform bill.

Obama has publicly supported legislation that would seek a pathway to citizenship for illegal immigrants already in the United States.

Obama had spent most of the first part of 2013 trying to paint sequestration as a doomsday device put in-play by Republicans despite press reports and noted journalist Bob Woodward’s expose demonstrating that the White House pushed for sequestration. Recently, the White House cancelled tours of “The People’s House” and threatened the East Lawn Easter Egg Hunt pointing to sequestration as the cause – all while Joe Biden had been taking weekend trips back home, the Obama’s continued to vacation like Hollywood elites, and the Vice President blew over a half-million on a hotel stay in Paris.

The Administration’s attempts to show that budget cuts are painful failed miserably. Sequestration didn’t actually cut the budget, it only reduced the size of recent increases in federal spending of tax payer dollars. With only minuscule cutbacks coming from sequestration, no real change to services or the economy are palpable. Obama’s credibility has taken a tremendous hit as his fiscal cliff turns into a non-event.

The President had also spent the last few months pushing for an outright Federal gun ban. Limitations on shotguns, pistols and incorrectly-labelled “assault weapons” were desired by the Commander-in-Chief – until now. With Harry Reid not wanting to lose his seat as Senate Majority Leader, he was forced to pull the gun ban from the gun bill – instead focusing on background checks and enforcement. Sen. Reid did not want to force Democrats from rural states to have to vote on a gun ban bill which would just about guarantee lost Democrat Senate seats and a Republican Majority Leader come 2014.

This month, even more negative impacts of Obamacare have been brought to the attention of Americans. More doctors are retiring early, fewer are seeking medical careers, the costs of the legislation are skyrocketing, healthcare claims costs will rise 32% on average and more than 80% in some states.

Obamacare, gun control and the budget – all important and highly-visible issues with voters. All issues the President would have liked to have define his Presidency. All of them not headed in directions in Obama’s favor. But not all of them the most important.

According to a March 26th Gallup poll, the economy, federal spending and healthcare are the top three issues with American voters. Obama is now pivoting away from federal spending, trying to pretend Obamacare isn’t really as bad as recent press says it is and has been failing on the economy overall since taking office.

Obama approval ratingServing in his second term, President Obama presides over a nation more divided than any time since the 1960’s.  Racial tensions, class warfare, and an economy taking much longer than expected to recover have left America with a melting pot in shambles. Hoping to prevent a two-term legacy of outright failure, Obama is seeking to use Spanish language television to get at least one thing accomplished that may be looked upon favorably in history’s eyes.

Univision Does the Work Mainstream Media Just Won’t Do

 Spanish language network Univision is quickly becoming a powerhouse in U.S. media.  Perhaps that’s because they are more concerned about their markets (read:money) then winning the beauty pageant on Capitol Hill. Their obvious concern for the people they serve and what moves them has led Univision to step out in front on the Fast and Furious scandal, which very well may be the biggest political scandal of our time. For months conservatives have been begging the mainstream media to pay attention to the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans and border agent Brian Terry as a result of the ill-conceived gun walking scheme from the Obama administration. But since the MSM is really made up of under-cover racists who actually don’t really care about the lives of people they don’t know or understand, they’ve buried their heads on the issue. Here comes Univision, picking up the slack and doing the job the mainstream media just won’t do. Perhaps when MSNBC starts caring a little more about their ratings than their spot on the cocktail circuit they’ll join Univision in covering real news. Until then, here is a replay of the Univision story with English subtitles. Please share this with friends. Americans need to know what has been happening at our hands south of the border.

President Obama in 2011: Can’t Stop Deportation of Illegal Immigrants by Executive Order

President Obama’s executive order to halt the deportation of certain illegal immigrants, essentially ignoring separation of powers and legislating from the executive, is sure to be called a cynical act of “pandering” in an election year. But it is far, far worse than that.

Compelling and conclusive video shows that the president is knowingly and willfully violating The Constitution of the United States and his Oath of Office.

President Obama at a Univision town hall in March 2011 literally says he cannot suspend deportations by executive order. He even gives an explanation about how laws are made in the United States before stating that ignoring the laws would not be an appropriate thing for him to do as president.

Below is the footage:

This shows without a shadow of a doubt to all citizens of the United States that a vote for Obama is a vote for an aspiring dictator. The man is willing to violate national sovereignty and disobey the laws of the United States in order to get a marginal electoral boost in a voting demographic. One wonders what laws Obama will wake up tomorrow and decide to ignore.

Hispanic voters better think long and hard before installing a dictator intent on bringing the same kind of corrupt, dysfunctional economics and backwards, banana republic politics to America as runs rampant throughout Latin America, South America, and former Third World nations.

If you want America to continue being America, vote this Hugo Chavez-type despot out of office and help this nation remain a beacon of liberty and prosperity, and a safe haven for people fleeing from tinpot dictators like Barack Obama.
