  • Even with a green card, an immigrant can be deported under new guidelines

    A green card is no longer an immigrant’s insurance policy against deportation in the Donald Trump era. Documented immigrants can now be deported from the United States if they break the rules of federal and state programs that offer public benefits to immigrants. New guidelines implemented last week by U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services say that immigrants who abuse “any program related to the reception of public benefits” will be summoned to appear before an immigration court. Immigrants will be subjected to removal procedures if there’s evidence of “fraud or willful misrepresentation” in connection “with any official matter or application...

    Tens of thousands of veterans have expressed interest in obtaining a new national Veterans Identification Card, intended as convenient proof of their service when they seek military discounts offered by retail and restaurant chains. The high level of interest apparently was too much for the online application site — operated by the Department of Veterans Affairs at — and temporarily knocked it offline not long after it was rolled out at the end of November. Veterans Affairs has made improvements and is “monitoring the system regularly to ensure all veterans can access the application,” press secretary Curt Cashour said....

    A Pittsburgh coffee shop is brewing up backlash over a loyalty punch card featuring pictures of President Trump and other conservatives. Black Forge Coffee House owner Nick Miller says the satiric cards are meant to express frustration with the system and nothing more. However, critics complain the punch holes make it look like the politicos have been shot in the forehead. The subjects include Vice President Mike Pence, Texas Sen. Ted Cruz, former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum and conservative pundits Ann Coulter, Rush Limbaugh and Bill O'Reilly....

    President Obama used the race card during a tense debate over the future of the Middle East with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu. Obama recently agreed to an extensive interview with the Atlantic’s Jeffrey Goldberg for its April issue. The piece, titled “The Obama Doctrine,” highlights the president’s growing disillusionment with long-time allies. Obama even disclosed how he linked obstacles with Netanyahu to condescension instead of an ideological divide. “In one of Netanyahu’s meetings with the president, the Israeli prime minister launched into something of a lecture about the dangers of the brutal region in which he lives, and Obama...

    Some clients of Washington state's Obamacare exchange say they have been incorrectly charged for coverage already, and can't log into the website because it is down, KING 5 News in Seattle reports. The site allows people to pick their payment date, and Shannon and Josh Bruner told the station last week that they signed up to pay on Dec. 24. They say they were billed early, leaving their bank account $800 in the red. They were unable to get onto the site to fix the problem because it was down for the second week in a row. The incident raises...
  • Orson Scott Card Worries About Obama Turning "Urban Gangs" Into His Personal Police Force

    Slate ^ | August 14, 2013 | David Weigel (member, Ezra Klein's journ-o-list)
    The controversy over Orson Scott Card's opposition to gay marriage appears to have simmered down. Maybe it'll kick up again as the Ender's Game premiere closes in, but it shouldn't—Card's religious objection to gay marriage is shared by a substantial minority of Americans, and holding it against him is a little pat. The actual outrage over what's happening to gay Russians appears to have captured all the anger being directed Card's way. That's good! The gay marriage foofarah was a distraction from Card's much more fascinating political paranoia. His last column on politics is a sort of masterpiece of that...

    It's one of the most highly anticipated films of the upcoming holiday movie season, though "Ender's Game" now has a considerable amount of controversy to go with the hype. Geeks OUT has launched an online protest of the film due to author Orson Scott Card being an outspoken opponent of gay marriage. Called "Skip Ender's Game," the boycott urges potential audiences to steer clear of the film, which is based on Card's popular 1985 novel. "Do NOT see this movie! Do not buy a ticket at the theater, do not purchase the DVD, do not watch it on-demand," Geeks OUT...

    Meet Ryan Patrick Winkler. He's a 37-year-old liberal Minnesota state legislator with a B.A. in history from Harvard University and a J.D. from the University of Minnesota Law School. He's also a coward, a bigot, a liar and a textbook example of plantation progressivism. On Tuesday, Winkler took to Twitter to rant about the Supreme Court's decision to strike down an onerous section of the Voting Rights Act. The 5-4 ruling overturned an unconstitutional requirement that states win federal preclearance approval of any changes to their election laws and procedures. Winkler fumed: "VRA majority is four accomplices to race discrimination...

    The same-sex marriage wars took a decidedly ugly turn, according to the Washington Times, when a group of gay activists started a petition to demand that DC Comics fire a Mormon writer for his opposition to gay marriage. The writer in question is Orson Scott Card, best known for his science fiction novels such as "Ender's Game," soon to be a major motion picture starring, among others, Harrison Ford. Card has been employed by DC Comics as a writer for its new digital product, "Adventures of Superman."
