  • Obama says: Executive Actions Not Amnesty; Amnesty Is the Immigration System We Have Today

    WASHINGTON Republicans predictably came down hard on President Obamas address announcing his immigration executive order, with House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) vowing to work with our members and protect the Constitution. How they were planning to funnel their outrage into legislative or judicial action was less clear. First, well build on our progress at the border with additional resources for our law enforcement personnel so that they can stem the flow of illegal crossings, and speed the return of those who do cross over, Obama said in the White Houses Cross Hall during the primetime address. Second, Ill make...

    I spend a lot of my time mulling over the large purchases in my life. And for good reason. Still, I tend to forget about the small, everyday things that matter most and have the power to make life a whole lot easier. The following household items are extremely useful and better yet each costs less than $10. 1. Chip clips I don't know why it took me so long to purchase a set of inexpensive chip clips for our kitchen. We end up using them for far more than just sealing bags for freshness.

    There's a lot to like in the International Olympic Committee's "Olympic Agenda 2020" IOC president Thomas Bach's 40-point reform plan designed to make the Olympics more desirable to potential host cities. The plan calls for the use of existing venues, rather than the construction of expensive stadiums that could become white elephants, as we saw with the 2004 Olympics in Athens. It calls for common-sense reforms like promoting gender equality and placing limits on the number of total events in the Olympics. It also calls for a bunch of cost-reduction measures, like letting international federations run events rather than...

    The president sought to start a war last night. In Barack Obamas announcement revealing the details of an executive order on immigration, he tried to frame his as a plan that was specific and tailored. Obama reaffirmed the principles in deferred action for childhood arrivals (DACA), expanded the age of those DACA-eligible children of illegal immigrants to 33 and above, and reaffirmed his commitment not to deport the parents of those children, who were not going to be deported anyway, so long as they have lived in the United States for five years. That is what Obama said, and...

    Last night’s presidential address on decreeing that millions of illegal aliens can stay here in violation of the law contained a deep deceit, buried in words that were, on the surface, true. President Obama’s rhetoric left the impression that at last, illegal immigrants would “pay their fair share.” From the official transcript: We expect that those who cut the line will not be unfairly rewarded. So we’re going to offer the following deal: If you’ve been in America for more than five years; if you have children who are American citizens or legal residents; if you register, pass a criminal...

    Barack Obama may pay lip service to working with Republicans, but we know hell ultimately attempt to ramrod policies he hopes will transform America, but which actually damage her. Mr. Obama came to America with a chip on his shoulder and that splinter remains despite Americans twice electing him. A man with a gracious and forgiving nature would have been moved by this outpouring; yet, despite all this, he seems unable to shed himself of his anti-Americanism, revealing a lack of charitable character. So, how will Americans protect themselves from his arbitrary executive orders that undoubtedly fall beyond his Constitutional...

    National Review ^ | 11/21/2014 | Mark Krikorian
    Obama’s speech announcing the his immigration diktat was the usual pabulum: “our immigration system is broken,” can’t let illegals “remain in the shadows,” “commonsense middle-ground approach,” blah, blah, blah. ​If I didn’t have to go on TV right afterwards, I would have played a drinking game. But the speech was notable for some of the things Obama didn’t mention. For instance, he lied about what his non-amnesty amnesty consisted of: “All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.” As polling has suggested, this is less likely to provoke opposition than the truth: “All we’re saying is we’re not...

    Country star Ty Herndon has something to share: He's an "out, proud and happy gay man." Herndon, 52, came out publicly as gay in an interview with People magazine. He says he's known he was gay since he was a child and started coming out to family members in his 20s. But the "What Mattered Most" singer, who had a number of hits in the 1990s, kept the news close to the vest. It wasn't until he attended a Tony Robbins seminar in 2009 that he decided to become more public, he told the magazine. "I realized I had an...

    Another day, another stunning blockbuster report that Jesus was married! And to Mary Magdalene! The latest version of this meme comes from Simcha Jacobovici, an author and filmmaker who is famous for promoting stunning theories about Jesus that on further review often turn out to be dubious. Jacobovicis new claim that he has decoded an old text that reveals Jesus and the Magdalene were married and had two kids (and she was a co-deity with her husband) came out this month and has also been widely dismissed. But as happened earlier this year with the so-called Gospel of Jesuss...

After a number of problems with state and federal enrollment websites surfaced in late 2013, the CBO amended its projection down to 6 million.

Anything he says could be used against him in court, Texas governor Rick Perry warned yesterday at the annual Republican Governors Association meeting in Florida.

It’s a loser, it will take forever to decide, it’s an attempt to ‘redirect Republican rage’ away from budgetary remedies like denying funding, etc. Not so fast. I’m...

    An NBC News poll discovered that President Obama’s planned executive amnesty order is not overwhelmingly popular among Hispanics, while nearly half of all Americans oppose it.  In fact, the margin of opposition among all Americans is greater than the marhin of support among Hispanics. The casual assumption that Spanish-speakers automatically want to open the floodgates for illegal immigrants overlooks the vast diversity among people grouped together in a census category that assumes people from Barcelona are the same as people from Tegucigalpa.  It also fails to recognize that people who came here legally, or whose ancestors did, may resent...

Energy prices fell 1.9 percent last month, while food costs edged up a slim 0.1 percent. Core inflation, which excludes volatile energy and food, rose 0.2 percent in October. For the past 12 months, overall inflation is up 1.7 percent, and core inflation is up a similarly modest 1.8 percent....

But there is at least one area where the GOPs new Senate majority makes a big difference: a Supreme Court nomination. While its still unclear whether Obama will get to nominate another justice, the Republican gains in November make it unlikely a liberal nominee, such as Justice Thurgood Marshall, would be confirmed. And a nominee like the two Obama-appointed justices currently sitting on the court, Elena Kagan and Sonia Sotomayor, would face a possible filibuster. Only a true middle-of-the-road nominee such as...

That survey found that an executive order was only slightly unpopular, with 46 percent disapproving and 42 percent approving. Today, it seems that poll may have given Democrats false hope. An NBC News/Wall Street Journal survey released on Wednesday revealed that an immigration executive order from Obama would not be that popular at all, even with the demographics the president surely hoped to please.

    In a nation in which 1 out of every 3 homes is unaffordable, you’d think the primary goal of public policy wouldn’t be to ensure real estate becomes even more out of reach for the average citizen. However, we live in a country in which policy isn’t being driven by logic and what’s in the best interest of “the people,” rather, we live in an neo-feudalistic society in which policy is being driven by what is best for a handful of white-collar criminals. It’s bad enough that American financial oligarchs have leveraged free money polices of the Federal Reserve to...

With the rise of Obama, James Carville began peddling a new book 40 More Years promising that the Dems would rule for generations. Just this year Carville predicted that the Republican Party would become extinct if it lost to Hillary Clinton. But it was the Democratic Party that was going extinct in Carvilles own backyard. Republicans began winning Senate seats in Louisiana for the first time in a century in just the last ten years. If Landrieu loses, then both of the Louisianas...

    It should also be pointed out that the large scale airplane hijackings used by Al Qaeda on September 11 were pioneered by the PLO, though Al Qaeda received direct training in the techniques from the Iranian-backed Al Qaeda.As ABC’s Jake Tapper and a number of others have pointed out, this year Arab Muslim terrorists who operate under the “Palestinian” brand name have killed more Americans than ISIS. (via David Gerstman)While ISIS beheaded three American hostages, seven Americans have been killed ranging in age from 3-month old Chaya Zissel Braun who was a victim of Car Jihad, hurled out of...

    Rep. Luis Gutierrez (D-Ill.), who leads the Immigration Task Force in the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, offered some clues as to what could be in President Obamas executive order. I think the president is going to choose between five and 10 years, that is that you have to be in the United States for five to 10 years and you have to be working here and you are going to pay for a background check, Gutierrez said on Fox last night. Youre going to submit your fingerprints and they come back clear. He is going to give you a work authorization...

    A Fox Business reporter is accusing her former CNBC bosses of reprimanding her for pursuing reporting angles that pointed out the mathematical flaws in the president's Obamacare law. Financial reporter Melissa Francis disclosed on her Fox Business program "Money with Melissa Francis" that when she worked for CNBC, she was told numerous times by her superiors to stop "disrespecting the office of the president" by reporting on what she called "the math of Obamacare." Francis explained that while at CNBC she pointed out to her viewers that it's not possible to increase the number of people receiving health coverage, including...

    A New York high school has rejected a student's request to have a Christian club on campus, prompting possible legal action by a Texas-based organization. Wantagh High School of the Wantagh Union Free School District recently denied official recognition for Elizabeth Loverde's proposed club "Dare to Believe." In response to the rejection, Loverde and her family contacted the Plano, Texas-based Liberty Institute, which sent a letter Monday to the principal, as well as to other school district officials. "Once a secondary school such as yours creates a limited open forum, it cannot deny equal access to student groups on the...

    Church leaders are upset after a recent article in The New York Times revealed that the Internal Revenue Service can use undercover agents disguised as members of the clergy as a means to gather privileged information. Following the Times' report last weekend that over 40 federal agencies use undercover agents disguised as attorneys, doctors, news media and other positions to gain access to privileged information, church leaders are appalled to find out that IRS agents are also allowed to pose as clergy, even though the agency doesn't have a crime-fighting function that warrants such a use of undercover tactics. In...

    Over the weekend we closed the chapter on the "mystery" of America's collapsing labor force and the record 90+ million Americans out of the labor force. As Pew reported, confirming what we had said all along, it has little to nothing to do with Boomers retiring - simply because under ZIRP they can't afford to retire - and everything to do with Millennials staying in school because they can't find the well-paying jobs they had expected, raking up $1.2 trillion (and exponentially rising) in government-funded student debt in the process. To wit: More and more Americans are outside the...

    Japan's economy is in trouble. The latest GDP figures unexpectedly show it to be in recession. In the long term, this is largely a story about demographics, and Japan is fighting an uphill battle. One-fourth of Japan's population is older than 65, and that number isn't going down anytime soon. That means a shrinking percentage of the population is working. Meanwhile, a growing percentage of the population is receiving benefits, living on a fixed income, and being supported by that shrinking population of workers. No amount of loose monetary or fiscal policy will bring more working-age people into the economy...

    It’s “the single most important committee in Congress,” one former Representative tells WTMJ in Milwaukee, with its fingers in practically everything the federal government does. Tax reform?

  • Deportations Deferred: Refusal to enforce the law means amnesty may already have begun.

    The administration says an executive amnesty for illegal immigrants already present in the U.S. is imminent. In fact, it may already be underway. Part of the plan the president is expected to issue would defer deportations for the illegal-immigrant parents of U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officials appear to be preventing the deportations of such people already. The agency, according to multiple people interviewed, is increasingly citing prosecutorial discretion as it doles out deferrals of deportations. Moises Herrera, an illegal immigrant from El Salvador who is now living in Boston, was about to...

    On Tuesday, The New York Times took its readers inside the city’s exclusive Four Seasons Restaurant where Al Sharpton celebrated his 60th birthday party at what was dubbed his “party for a cause.”“Mayor Bill de Blasio and Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo hailed him as a civil rights icon,” the profile of New York City-based activist and MSNBC began. “President [Barack] Obama sent an aide to read a message commending Mr. Sharpton’s ‘dedication to the righteous cause of perfecting our union.’ Major corporations sponsored the lavish affair.”It is a spectacular raise for an agitator who began his career inciting race...
