GLENN: I think this President wants to have a fight

Get Glenn Live! On TheBlaze TV

For a President sold to the public as the one who would unite America, he sure seems to be picking a ton of fights. The latest being the sequester battle – he’s so willing to pick a fight he’s actually released hundreds of illegal immigrants awaiting deportation trial for fear that ICE would go over budget after the cuts.

The LA Times reported:

Immigration and Customs Enforcement officials have released “several hundred” immigrants from deportation centers across the country, saying the move is an effort to cut costs ahead of budget cuts due to hit later this week. 

Announcing the news Tuesday, ICE officials said that the immigrants were released under supervision and continue to face deportation. After reviewing hundreds of cases, those released were considered low-risk and “noncriminal,” officials said.

The releases took place over the last week and were an effort “to ensure detention levels stay within ICE’s current budget,” said ICE spokeswoman Gillian Christiansen, citing uncertainty caused by a budget standoff in Washington.

“All of these individuals remain in removal proceedings. Priority for detention remains on serious criminal offenders and other individuals who pose a significant threat to public safety,” she said.

“I believe that the President is trying to pick a fight,” Glenn said in response to the news.

“I see a guy who is releasing the illegal aliens, and I see a guy who will at some point just open up the prisons. If any state goes into rebellion he would just say, you know what, open up the prisons and he would open up the federal prisons. I mean who let’s go illegal aliens before you even have the cut?  Who would do that? What American thinks that’s a good idea besides a radical extremist,” Glenn said.

Besides illegal immigration, Glenn predicted that the White House will start releasing federal prisoners and cut down the military under the guise of budget cuts.

    He could also open the doors to the federal prisons in any state that doesn’t set up an Obamacare exchange.  He wouldn’t have to even say that’s why he’s doing it.

      Most dictators, such as Hussein and Quaddafi, when the end was in sight, did exactly that.

    Well he needs to let go of some Criminals after all where are they going to put the people that can’t afford to pay for health care and the fines and people who own guns legally because they are the killers not murders. Three years ago I would of thought that was insane but when you got Obamaunist running the country insanity is normal.

      “You people live in artificial fear, and the rest of us have rejected you.”

      Half a true statement, to be sure.

      Fear by its nature is never artificial.

      Your side rejected civility, natural law, history and all of the reality those elements represent in life, in favor of alarmist rhetoric, instigation of partisan violence, racism, and obfuscation a long, long time ago, and you are a perfect example of the predictable result: a sociopathic, belligerent man-child whose rare moments of satisfaction involve “winning conversations” on a website you view only to remain angry.

      You’re worse than Hannity.

      Obama is a coward and a liar.  The House was willing to give obama the choice where to cut the $85 billion and he refused because as he said, “I don’t want them blaming  for the cuts in various budgets”. He wants no cuts, only increased taxes and spending. Obama is a LSOS.  LOL LOL LOL

  • Soulphoenix

    Glenn is 100% right – Obama is trying to pick fights, and his aim is to completely destroy the Republican Party, the Tea Party, the Libertarian movement and all of the Moderate Democrats. He needs chaos and confusion, which he can use now that he essentially controls the message through the MSM. He will soon have enough of the military, given the number of good commanders who have been replaced with Obama’s hand picks over the last couple of years, to make things dicey in a real fight.

    We’ve seen this ALL before – world history is just repeating itself. But Obama has underestimated the American people – we will push back much harder than he expects, and from unexpected places, too, and he will NOT succeed in setting up his oppressive Progressive Paradise with himself at its head.

      The facade is beginning to crack.

  • Jerry Smith

    Not only does Obummer want to pick a fight. He is acting like a spoiled brat throwing a temper tantrum because he’s not getting his way on the sequester, i.e., the GOP has not totally caved — yet!!! God forbid we should deprive the bloated government of one nickel.

    • mspatdev

      What does he need to spend all of that money that he wants? Actually, he told the Unions that if they helped him with the election he would give them millions of $$’s. What did Obammy tell Russia’s leader after the election, give him lots of money? We support all of the no-good mid-eastern nations with money and planes. Who paid for all of that? Obammy is A VERY SPOILED BRAT. He isn’t getting his way. He said 2 yrs ago that he wasn’t going to do anything with the sequester, WHY NOW? He is spending money going around the country crying that he can’t get his way. What he needs is to separate the country more saying the Republicans made him do it. WRONG! It was his own party, Socialist, Communist, Radical Muslim, etc. I hope the country will rise up against him. He wants to ruin this country. He wants to be King of the U.S.A. and the World. He is very terrible, dangerous and he is a Hitler. He has been bent on causing more problems since Jan. when he put in the 2nd time. America get off your Asses and fight for your country or be killed.

         We’re not the same country we once were. How could we rebel against Obama? How do we even fight back anymore? I feel like our protests go unnoticed… they say protests and voting are all we have, but we’re being ignored by the people who we want to lend us an ear.  I think people need to start protesting in locations that will FORCE them to listen to us. It would take lots of planning and money.. but it’s worth it. We need a leader… I believe that’s all it takes… a leader to get everyone together and push back.

          We’re not protesting anywhere near enough to get noticed, and it’s unlikely we won’t in the near future either.  Most conservatives are working and and can’t take the time away from their jobs to join a protest rally; the Obama supporters are unemployed and are free to protest wherever the left-wing strategists tell them to.  Unfortunately, we conservatives will have to get extremely PO’d before we act, and by that time it will be chaos.

    Obama, fight? … seriously???  Given one chance to communicate directly with the Prez, I told him that if he stepped down now, there were even odds he could avoid prosecution later. 

    That’s right, a direct and harsh insult from one of his peons.  And what do you think that 3 inch putz in size 13 shoes did – nothing, flat silence.  A punk.  He hasn’t got the temerity of the 17 year-old pimps he emulates.  No spirit, no fire, NOTHING.

    He is all Alinsky subterfuge.  Just a wish for the passion to lust after power in an empty suit. 

    Just like his wife and Hillary and many of their colleagues.  Vacuous powerless ghosts performing a charade of significance – waiting uneasily for the fire that will consume THEM.

    Obama wants a battle, anything to justify his ‘fundamental transformation’ of the nation and to ensure he has, in his own narcissistic fantasies, a ‘great triumph’ and show himself to be a ‘savior, messiah, god-king’ all in one.

      His object is with “Fairycoon” to cause hatred between whites and people of color to gain members for Islam.  It’s that simple.

    What Obama has done via DHS and will repeat elsewhere in the nation is impeachable offenses, if Obama wants such a fight, then let him have one…he will never give up power in the end and this latest round of desperation tactics proves it.

    Start Impeachment proceedings, and remove him before he has a chance to declare martial law, or start war..

      He has already started to collect his forces for martial law.

    This is the problem as I see it:
    According to surveys, 62 percent of Americans and 60 percent of America’s Christians believe that Satan is “not a living being, but is a symbol of evil.” The 1995 film The Usual Suspects contains this line: “The greatest trick the Devil ever pulled was convincing the world he didn’t exist.” If a doctor can persuade you that cancer does not exist, you’re more likely to refuse treatment for the disease.

    At the same time, our culture is clearly fascinated by the demonic. Hollywood keeps making movies such as The Exorcist because we keep buying tickets to see them. I think the enemy is using the media to desensitize us to Satan’s reality and evil. The more we view him as a film fantasy, the less we will be aware of his work in our lives and world.

    Haven’t you noticed the more angry you are, the less clear headed you think. People will intentionally make a person  angry to weakened them. People will make a person angry so they look crazy.  I think he knows what he wants to do will make Americans mad, and that’s why he wants control of the guns.

  • James Mitchell

    Bill Clinton did the same thing in Arkansas when he didn’t get re-elected governor. Out of revenge — and this is revenge motivated also, by a childish president — he’s mad he isn’t getting his way.

    Easy solution,,,release the illegals,,,bus them to the White House,,,release them with a note saying,,have a nice day.

      I came to that same conclusion yesterday, in fact I contacted Gov. Jan Brewer from Arizona and proposed that very same solution to her.

    Doesn’t anyone realize what President Obama is really doing? Of course he’s picking fights with the GOP!  He’s simply greasing the skids to make it easier to blame Republicans for everything that goes wrong in the future. He knows the economy isn’t going to improve. He knows the deficit is going to skyrocket along with the price of gas. He doesn’t care about that as long as he can fix the blame on someone else. He is continually and deliberately picking fights with Republicans on controvertible issues (gun control, gay marriage, women in combat, amnesty, Muslim Brotherhood, etc.) for the very purpose of making it look like the GOP is opposing him at every turn. Then when things continue to fall apart, like he wants them to, he’ll have his excuse ready:  

    “Those evil Republicans got in the way of everything I tried to do. If it wasn’t for the ‘Party of No’ I would have had our economy humming by now. There would be no poor, no rich, no homeless, no uninsured, no rising sea levels, no guns, no crime, and no second class citizens hiding in the shadows. America would be a Utopia by now if only those damn Republicans had let me do what I wanted to do without gumming up the works. It’s all their fault!  But it’s not too late. You can get even with them by voting for Democrats in the upcoming elections of 2014. Then I will have two years to implement my policies unopposed. But it will take more than two years to undo all the damage. So you will also need to vote for Michelle, our first woman President, in 2016 to ensure that my policies continue.” 

    OK, it won’t be those exact words but very similar. And I won’t be surprised if Obama’s media cheerleaders buy his excuse completely and expound on it to the point that nothing Obama does during his entire 8 years will be his fault. I still have some hope that the American people will wise up to Obama. But FDR’s leftist policies kept America in depression for over a decade and the people never did wise up to him. So I’m not too optimistic. 

    • Lorraine

      His ultimate objective is to crash the economy (which he’s doing as fast as he can) and drag us down to 3rd world status so we get our come-uppance for succeeding when all the 3rd world countres have not succeeded. Being prepared is no longer crazy; it’s necessary. This is an exciting time. Just sit back and watch history unfold.

    Obama wants the same fight that “Fairycoon” of the “Nation of Isam wants.  He wants a riot between black and white, and preferably between white and black and latino, in order to spread Islam into the anti-white community.  It is really that simple.

    It’s clear to me that Obama is pushing our buttons and trying to provoke a rebellion.  This plays into what Glen has warned us about with Obama’s Green Jobs Czar, Van Jones’, top-down bottom-up scenario; cause an uprising so the government can act to put it down.  I really believe that Obama and the extreme left would work in concert to make this happen, and in the end, suspend the constitution and replace it with a progressive socialist government.

    Sheriff Joe in Arizona will take ’em:
    “The Arizona sheriff known for his no-nonsense incarceration techniques has put out the welcome mat for criminal aliens that Washington prefers to release onto American streets using the sequester excuse. It wouldn’t cost Maricopa County much to pitch additional tents and assemble more 40-cent bologna sandwiches.
    If the government wants to save money, it can close the deluxe Holidays-on-ICE prisons for illegal aliens and emulate the Arpaio example.”

  • Bonnie Somer

    he picks things he cannot win and blames the republicans that is the strategy.  he then goes on tour and lies and demonizes this is unconstitutional along w/the o/things hes done by shredding the constitution then the endangerment of Americans citizens for political gain is what this is.
