Judge Jeanine to Obama: ‘What don’t you understand about poor?’

Judge Jeanine Pirro made it clear the Obama administration hasn’t changed in the new year, slamming its rocky start and its attack on Catholic nuns.

Pirro had one resolution for herself and one for her country, she said at the opening of her Fox News show Saturday.

“For 2014, I wish for the United States to regain its position as the leading world power, one that is both respected and feared, one whose kindness is not mistaken for weakness,” she said. “A nation that means what it says, and says what it means.  Not one that whimpers and dithers and certainly not one that emboldens our enemies.”

The United States should be a “beacon for freedom,” Pirro said, but only for those who work for it and obey the law.

Pirro ticked off a laundry list of what she would like to see in a president, describing someone who is respected, who doesn’t lie, who puts the American people over politics and who isn’t always on the wrong side of foreign policy.

She wants a “government that respects religious freedom,” she said, then went after Obama for his treatment of Catholic nuns, saying:

Mr. President, now that you’re back from your Hawaiian vacation (how’s that handicap?), you come back and you try to take away from the Little Sisters of the Poor — a 175-year-old religious organization caring for low-income elderly and dying — their right to exercise their First Amendment freedom of religion.

You promised the Catholic Church you would not — under Obamacare — force those with religious objection to provide contraception to employees, which is contrary to their fundamental beliefs, and their exercise of their religion. In spite of your promise, you are spending millions in legal fees to force the Little Sisters of the Poor — who spend their lives serving the sick and the elderly — to provide contraception, sterilization, and abortifacients to their employees.

Pray tell, Mr. President, might you have lied to the Catholic Church? And now you want to sanction one home $6,700 a day? What don’t you understand about poor?

Even Muslim felons in federal prison are allowed to exercise their First Amendment religious freedoms without fear of punishment, Pirro said.

“Mr. President, it’s 2014 and we’re not getting off to a good start,” she said.

    Speaking of “the poor,” what many folks fail to acknowledge is that a great number, not all, are poor because of their lack of ambition, bad decisions in life, and general laziness. It seems that we, as a society, are, somehow supposed to compensate for the sorriness of many. Note well—-in NO way am I condemning the Nuns or the people they assist in their facilities. I am condemning the scumbags that lie around expecting society to support them.

      And that is why charity should be handled by local people and/or government. It is easier for neighbors to determine whether recipients are truly needy and not malingerers. Society screams out for intervention for drug addicts and alcoholics; but, shiftless people can just continue to feed at the public trough.

      1. galensdad says:

        Indeed!

      2. Pamela K. Cahoon Laub says:

        The Little Sisters of the Poor have served elderly poor for 175 years without government interference and don’t need it now. Many charities do a much better and more efficient job than the government ever will.

      you might want to condemn an administration that engenders this kind of mentality as well, while you are on the condemnation trail

      1. galensdad says:

        Yes. I do.

      As someone who is involved in trying to get young women to get an education prior to having babies, it is much more complicated. Many do not have the education to see that they will do better if they get an education first. Their life is what they see around them. Single mothers with “Checks” My friend the OB-GYN ( I am an MD also) tells the story that one young promising girl who he got on BC and hoped to get her to college came back to him and told him that she was the only one in her house not getting a check and that is why she was pregnant. Another told him that her mother told her that it was time to have a baby so she could get a check. As far a politicians getting involved to fix the problems this man should not be assailed but be asked what he would do other than just stopping the check. It would slow the number of those getting pregnant, but a few babies would be put at risk and most people would not say that is their problem not mine since they had a child they could not support. Most politicians run the other direction or say abstinence only as the answer. What do you call a mother who teaches abstinence only sex education? Grandma! Most who rail against abortion do nothing to teach anyone how to keep from getting pregnant which is what they really need to do to stop anyone from thinking they need an abortion and therefore there are no abortions. All they want to do is change the law. That is easy, but not greatly effective in stopping these girls from getting pregnant. These are the girls who are having babies!!!! We need to teach “Pregnancy Prevention Education” in the schools How to avoid pregnancy, what is the real cost of having a baby. How your world will be limited if you have a baby as a teen.
      The father is unlikely to stay and support this child.
      You have no social life. If you are a black teenager you have a 85% chance of being poor your entire life. If we can solve this problem as a society, then we will spend the money on ourselves, not prisons, police, higher insurance policies, neonatal units for babies born to teen mothers and the cost of raising these children and paying their mothers who cannot work because they must raise this child and then they have another.

    It is clear that the Founding Fathers intended the Constitution to protect the rights of individuals, families and organizations. They never intended the democratic party to use it as a means for their tyranny, oppression and persecution. The nuns keep their religious rights and the Obama administration has none. The Federal government has no rights, it has duties and it is answerable to the American people. Abolish the democratic party in a contest between them and the Constitution I choose the Constitution.

      democrat party*

      1. francoamerian says:

        There is nothing Democratic about the Democrat party.

        1. Arden Hale says:

          Or liberal either when it comes down to it. Liberal in democrat speak means degenerate.

    me too he shoud be impeached

    1. Eric says:

      To remove Obama from office would require a senate conviction which wont happen with the current makeup of the body.

    Why is she sticking out her tongue, is she trying to tell us ,to stick it to ourselves? That’s not very nice ,now,,I think from all,I know about her,she is not very nice, she hates American, is ashamed of us, and wastes all the money she can,
    So I guess she is sticking out that tongue at you and me.

      It is so easy to catch an ugly picture of Michelle. She doesn’t seem to be aware that cameras are always on her.

    Should not the primary architect of Obamacare, Bolshevik ideologue Ezekiel Emanuel, be charged murder?

    How dare this president offer affordable healthcare to poor women and innocent children?! His decisions to help people are costing me money and I’m tired of it! I want my country back!

    1. galensdad says:

      How dare this President cause healthcare policy holders to lose plans that they like, and force them to get more expensive coverage (or go without)? How dare he persistently, perniciously LIE to the American public in order to sell this marvelously flawed “plan”?

  8. Tom Markee says:

    Forcing Nuns to support birth control, what a joke. They like priests take a vow of Chasity, that means no sex. I guess that’s not strong enough birth control for O-idiot.
