‘World Is Going to Hell in a Hand Basket’: Judge Jeanine Slams Obama’s Leadership
In last night’s “Justice,” Judge Jeanine Pirro slammed President Barack Obama’s leadership on the immigration crisis.
Read the transcript below.
There comes a point in the life of a company when shareholders who believe the CEO is no longer capable demand resignation.
Signs are that if America were a company, the shareholders - now at a tipping point - would demand a similar move.
Let me put this in Jeanine speak, the world is going to hell in a hand basket and Barack Obama doesn't have the leadership, the instincts or even the interest to get America back on track.
Why do I say this?
Consider the following:
Sixty percent of Americans disapprove of the president's handling of the Israel-Hamas conflict.
Fifty-seven percent disapprove of his handling of Ukraine, Iraq and Afghanistan situations.
Sixty-eight percent of Americans disapprove of his handling of immigration and believe it to be an extremely serious problem.
Even his own party in Harry Reid's democratically controlled Senate couldn't pass the president's border crisis bill. The House at least passed a bill but America's CEO swore he wouldn't sign it and sarcastically chastised Congress for going on vacation.
As if, Mr. President, you are a hardworking, roll up your sleeves, take no prisoners kind of guy. Take a look.
And I won't even ask how many vacations, golf outings, fundraisers, and pool games you've had while the world turns and burns.
Now consider the immigration crisis – Mr. President please tell me why our border agents are not at the border stopping the continuous influx of immigrant children - most of whom, by the way, are teens -three quarters of those males.
Other countries close their borders, why don't we? What is it about the $17 trillion debt that you don't understand?
Now 80 percent of unaccompanied "children" come through the Rio Grande entry - yet Border Patrol is about 70 miles in. If you know that, why not put resources at that point?
Or is it your intent to stop them only after they enter the United States? As an alleged constitutional scholar you do know that once they enter, they are granted, According to the United States Supreme Court, constitutional rights never intended for them in the first place.
And what's that? This is a humanitarian crisis. Really? Where is the U.N. and its emergency relief coordinator? Why aren't they here? Why aren't they in Mexico or Central America?
Why? Because your plan is to get them here.
And the truth: Americans are the most generous, compassionate and charitable people in the world. Yet you for your own selfish reasons virtually invite the uninvited to change the demographic of this nation. But in the end, even you were duped: those who have sent the Trojan horse of children that you have so willingly accepted will have the last laugh.
You diverted Border Patrol agents to entry points used by these so-called children leaving other parts of the border unpatrolled. “Justice” has learned that drug cartels are exploiting the unguarded areas to continue their drug trafficking.
Remember a few weeks back? Shots fired from jet skis attributed to just those criminals at a less-patrolled part of the border?
You, Mr. President, are not only derelict in your duty to protect us, but you are opening up this country to Mexican drug cartels determined to create a new network in the United States as you funnel male teens throughout the country.
This week, 1,000 kids sent to a city where they can experience firsthand what it's like to live in your hometown - Chicago - the murder capital of America.
And so thanks to your refusal - or at the very least... ineptitude - to enforce our laws we now have a whole new overlay of government bureaucracy to accommodate those who break our laws - and we get to pay for it.
Now consider the international front - more ineptitude. Your brilliant secretary of state negotiates for an Israeli-Hamas cease-fire with Turkey and Qatar, actually believing Hamas, a terrorist organization, will keep their word.
After trumpeting his 72-hour cease fire - two Israeli soldiers were killed within 90 minutes. Tonight we learned a third soldier originally thought to be kidnapped - was killed in battle. Brilliant.
At this point any rational person would have to ask - whose side are you really on?
You're so quick to tell Israel to stop shelling after hundreds are killed in Gaza. And while there is no question that everyone bemoans the killing of innocents, why didn't you even follow up on your red line threat as over a hundred thousand are killed in Syria.
And Ukraine: You really scared Putin. Investigators still have not received complete access to the crash site and as of today, as many as 80 bodies remain on the ground.
But hey, not to worry - Ebola patients are entering the United States for the first time in history.
And on the economic front, the stock market almost crashed this week.
Yes, it is a crying shame that Congress went on vacation in the midst of all of this.
But since you talk out of both sides of your mouth, my guess - you'll be on vacation in Martha’s Vineyard very soon. A little golf, pool, and a few fundraisers.
And while you're relaxing, how about you give some serious thought to reading some books on leadership, since that's what you're getting paid to do.
