Obama and the Dispensing Power

President Obama’s abuse of his powers to attempt to grant pseudo-legalization to five millions illegal aliens by executive fiat has been widely described as being “unprecedented” in some quarters. This is inaccurate. Others have tried to argue that reasonable precedent can be found in actions of prior presidents, such as Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, who have issued executive orders relating to the implementation of earlier immigration laws. This is also false. It is difficult to find anywhere in the history of the United States a broader assertion of the power of the executive to make law than that asserted by Mr. Obama in this case. That does not mean, however, that this action is wholly without precedent in our collective political history.

Immigration Agencies Not Actually Capable of Processing 5 Million Applications

Obama’s illegal alien amnesty is just going to be an open door. It’s his DREAMER amnesty on a much bigger scale.
The infrastructure isn’t there to process and check all these applications. Congress won’t be allocating money for an illegal unilateral amnesty (which sets them up to be blamed for the consequences of Obama’s illegal actions) so the whole thing will be an open door for just about anyone trying to get through.
The political debate over Obama’s unilateral immigration actions is obscuring the more basic question of whether the federal government is actually up to the task of handling a flood of applications from as many as 5 million illegal aliens seeking quasi-legal status.


Holder: Federal Investigation 'Remains Ongoing'

Attorney General Eric Holder released this statement after news came down that Darren Wilson would not be indicted for the murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson, Missouri:
“While the grand jury proceeding in St. Louis County has concluded, the Justice Department’s investigation into the shooting of Michael Brown remains ongoing. Though we have shared information with local prosecutors during the course of our investigation, the federal inquiry has been independent of the local one from the start, and remains so now. Even at this mature stage of the investigation, we have avoided prejudging any of the evidence. And although federal civil rights law imposes a high legal bar in these types of cases, we have resisted forming premature conclusions.


Door opens for scrutiny of Federal Reserve

The new Republican majority in the Senate opens a door for a new level of scrutiny of the Federal Reserve, the quasi-public organization that largely controls U.S. monetary policy behind closed doors.
“Will we finally get a vote on audit of the Fed in the Senate?” asked Julie Borowski in a column on the website of the conservative and libertarian lobbying group FreedomWorks.
“The GOP-led House overwhelmingly passed bills to audit the Fed in 2012 and 2014. Back in September, it passed with a bipartisan vote of 333-92. Yet, it was basically dead on arrival in the Senate,” she wrote. “For reasons unconfirmed, Harry Reid refused to allow a vote on the bill – even though he cosponsored audit legislation in the 1990s. The Senate companion bill, introduced by Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., has 31 cosponsors but never even made it out of committee.”
But with Harry Reid no longer in charge of the Senate, she said, “we’re far more likely to get a vote on audit the Fed.”


Even The New York Times Has Awakened

The bottom line as articulated in this short piece reacting to a New York Times article and it is so very, very true.  Here it is:  "...the only real way to fight crony capitalism is to reduce the thing which enables the cronies – intrusive government. You can’t  regulate cronies away. Cronies LOVE regulation.  It’s how they make their bones. No regulation, no need for crony deals. Less regulation, fewer crony deals. That’s the way it goes."   http://finance.townhall.com/columnists/nicksorrentino/2014/11/19/even-the-new-york-times-now-agrees-with-us-on-obamacare-n1920665   Here is the New York Times article.  Government partnership with insurance companies has resulted in a government provided money bonanza for them.   http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/18/us/politics/health-law-turns-obama-and-insurers-into-allies.html?

How banks and the government rob you blind

Theft comes in many forms.
The most obvious occurs when a thug sticks a gun in your face or a knife in your back and demands you hand over your wallet or when a burglar enters your property and absconds with your valuables while you are away.
It also happens much more covertly. A person or a business may commit fraud. One of the greatest fraudsters of all was Bernie Madoff. His scheme made Charles Ponzi’s look like penny-ante poker.
Ponzi offered investors an opportunity to earn profits of 50 percent to 100 percent by buying discounted postal reply coupons in other countries — primarily Italy — and redeeming them at face value in the United States.

What They Do & Say

This is a very interesting piece by Jon Rappaport regarding the lawsuit filed by Monsanto to void this month's vote by Maui citizens to ban Monsanto and DOW from use, research and production of GMO products from their island.  This is a blatant act by a mega corporation in collusion with government to reverse a clear message sent them by voters, citizens and food consumers who do not want them or their products polluting the land and forcing GMO products down their throats.    http://jonrappoport.wordpress.com/2014/11/23/smoking-guns-why-maui-can-defeat-monsanto/

This is a consequence of our weak economy.  It is ignored by the president and mainstream media.  To raise it as an issue would fly in the face of Obama's attempt to grant immunity and work visas for up to 5 million illegals.  Don't worry about the 73 million American workers who are already suffering in involuntary part time jobs. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/11/hidden_unemployment_7.3_million_involuntary_part_time_workers.html 

Your will find this criminologist's observations about Bill Cosby and Bill Clinton quite interesting. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/11/a_brief_criminological_comment_on_bill_cosby_and_bill_clinton.html 

This item focusses on the Congressional Budget Office (CBO) and how lawmakers in this and past Congresses and administration officials seek to use, maybe better said abuse, the CBO as a tool to manipulate public opinion regarding proposed legislation. The illustration used to make the point is how Obamacare was constructed to hide from the public its real costs known by its creators.  This is an excellent summary of the misuse of this important legislative tool.   http://townhall.com/tipsheet/kevinglass/2014/11/22/smoke-and-mirrors-how-jon-gruber-proved-republicans-right-about-the-cbo-n1922165?

As you read this item bear in mind that several Monsanto operatives are members of Obama's administrative staff.   http://preservefreedom.org/what-exactly-is-the-most-evil-company-in-the-world-trying-to-hide/  and if you do not believe that Monsanto is influencing national food policy read this article but if you just want to see how many past and present influential Monsanto personnel have worked for presidential administrations scroll down to "Government Appointment of Monsanto Associates".  You may also find the section entitled "Appointment of Elena Kagen" very interesting.    http://www.globalresearch.ca/monsanto-controls-both-the-white-house-and-the-us-congress/5336422

By now we have all heard about Jon Gruber, the MIT economics professor who admits that he not only helped construct the Obamacare law he also helped construct the law is such as way as so as to deceive the public about what it really would be and what it would do.  You have also seen how Obama and a host of Obamacare collaborators and advocates have frantically tried to distance themselves from Dr. Gruber.  This item shows how far back Obama and Gruber go - all the way back 2006 - there is video to prove it.  Quote: "Democrats have praised him for years as he came up with a means of making Obamacare “fit” so it could be codified into law as a tax.  And now that his ramblings have hit prime time, Democrats are distancing themselves from him as fast as they can.  President Obama has made sure to put as much distance between himself and Gruber as he can, even saying Gruber “never worked on our staff.”  He tells the truth about Gruber never working on his staff but that hides the lie that he was a central figure in constructing a law that purposely concealed the truth of what it was intended to do.  In the 2006 video he calls Dr. Gruber "my dear friend".  What kind of person would turn, as Obama has, on his "dear friend"?  A person like Obama.   http://survivaljoe.net/blog/obama-admits-hes-stolen-liberally-so-he-can-destroy-america/

'Lost' Lois Lerner Emails Found Despite 'No Backup' Claims. IRS Has No Comment

If you are an American taxpayer, the idea that your political (or other?) views could impact your taxes is pretty frightening. When you consider the power to tax—which includes the power to destroy—the mere suggestion of targeting is abhorrent. It’s one reason all the denials–including President Obama’s ‘no smidgen of corruption’ remark to Fox News in February–inflame rather than quell debate.
First, there was no targeting by the IRS. Then there was, but only by those rogue IRS employees down in Cincinnati. Then, there was a spontaneous uprising from a youtube video (oops sorry, wrong lie scandal). There was confusion about how to apply the tax law, but not political, and not from above. Then, top IRS Official Lois Lerner refused to testify.
IRS Commissioner Miller seemed defiant too and was sacked. Then, there was a year-long Congressional investigation before the IRS finally admitted the 2009-2011 Lois Lerner’s emails ‘disappeared.’ Then, the backups  didn’t work were recycled. Then, the new IRS Commissioner said the IRS needs a bigger tech budget.


There’s a Giant Contradiction at the Heart of the U.S. Economy

Suppose you told an economist these facts and only these facts: Long-term interest rates have fallen sharply over just a few months. Prices for oil and other much-needed commodities have been in free fall in the face of weak demand. Markets are predicting that inflation will be low in the years ahead and that the central bank will keep interest rates lower for longer.
Knowing only those facts, the economist would conclude that this country was staring down the barrel of a significant economic slowdown, and maybe even a recession.
What would that economist conclude, though, if stock prices are consistently rising toward record highs, job gains are the best in years, corporate sales and profits are rising, and business surveys and other real-time indicators of the economy point to steady expansion?
That country, of course, would seem to have a perfectly strong economic outlook. And as you have surely guessed, both these situations apply to the same country at the same time, which is to say the United States in November 2014.


CIA Insider Warns: "25-Year Great Depression is About to Strike America"

You will want to remember this date May 23, 2015.
According to one of the top minds in the U.S. Intelligence Community, that is when the United States will enter the darkest economic period in our nation's history.

And alarmingly, he and his colleagues believe the evidence they've uncovered proves this outcome is impossible to avoid.
In an exclusive interview with Money Morning, Jim Rickards, the CIA's Financial Threat and Asymmetric Warfare Advisor, has stepped forward to warn the American people that time is running out to prepare for this $100 trillion meltdown.
"Everybody knows we have a dangerous level of debt. Everybody knows the Fed has recklessly printed trillions of dollars. These are secrets to no one," he said.

About The Need To Reign In Government Abuse

Ignoring a previous rebuke by the Supreme Court government officials in the EPA sought to deny this citizen the right to use his land for a business venture.  Quote: "Mike Sackett said he and his wife were subjected to “hell” by federal bureaucrats in his case. “The EPA used bullying and threats of terrifying fines, and has made our life hell for the past five years. It said we could not go to court and challenge their bogus claim that our small lot had ‘wetlands’ on it. As this nightmare went on, we rubbed our eyes and started to wonder if we were living in some totalitarian country,” he said. “Now, the Supreme Court has come to our rescue, and reminded the EPA – and everyone – that this is still America, and Americans still have rights under the Constitution.”    http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/feds-upend-landowners-plans-for-own-property/

If the government is allowed to implement this progressive/leftist policy it will be another indication that the moral underpinnings of our culture are in rapid decline.   http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/schools-propose-let-boys-into-girls-locker-rooms/ 

This item illustrates how some liberal justices view the First Amendment.  In this case the decision rendered was a political correctness one and is representative to the sad state liberalism has wraught.   Quote: "It’s funny how the left has no problem with “intolerance” as long as it affects only Christians. For years, they’ve maintained that same-sex marriage should be allowed, often resorting to the “Why should you care?” argument. And it’s a persuasive argument. But now we see that same-sex marriage is not the endgame. It’s only the beginning."  And,  "In the trials facing the Giffords, we see a reflection of the Hobby Lobby case. We see the bakery owners who have been accused of discrimination for refusing to supply same-sex couples with wedding cakes. We see the T-shirt makers who have been fined for refusing to print gay pride shirts. We see individuals and businesses being told that the “rights” of gay couples somehow trump religious freedom. Strange how that should happen, considering one is expressly outlined in the U.S. Constitution and the other is…just a thing people are crying about."   http://www.leanrightamerica.org/uncategorized/homosexuality-trumps-christianity-ny-farm-fined-13000/

This item serves as an excellent reinforcement of the above item.  The government and leftist activists are making a mockery of the US Constitution.  http://eaglerising.com/11517/government-overreach-killing-freedom-religion/

These polling data should but probably won't give liberals and government operatives pause with regard to their incessantly seeking to end legal gun ownership.  Trying to take guns away from law abiding citizens is not an activity in which the government should not be engaged.  The Second Amendment says so.    http://therighttobear.com/bad-news-about-gun-safety-you-cant-afford-to-ignore/  This item reinforces the point made in the previous link.   http://totalconservative.com/2013-brought-higher-gun-sales-lower-crime-rates/

West About to Cave on Key Iranian Demand

The deadline for the talks between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the P5+1 is now less than two days away.
As the time nears for either the ability to announce an “historic agreement” about nuclear weapons with Iran or failure on yet another front, there are reports of an alarming shift in the wind blowing out of the west: a growing inclination to allow Iran to avoid admitting “possible military dimensions” (PMD) of its nuclear program in order to have a historic agreement.
Many news outlets are referring to the condition as merely a “mea culpa” demand, useful only as a tool to humiliate Iran. The suggestion is that the PMD requirement should be relaxed in order to allow Iran to “save face.”


NYC warns schools: Prepare for a flood of illegal immigrants

New York has sent a warning to its schools: Expect more illegal immigrants.
The city Department of Education has told principals it plans this year to enroll 2,350 migrant children from Central America who crossed into the United States unaccompanied — with many more to come.
“It is expected that children will continue to arrive in large numbers in the coming years,” says a DOE memo to principals obtained by The Post.
The notice comes as the city rolls out a $50 million red carpet for 1,662 minors who crossed the border this summer to escape ­violence and gangs in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador.
In the “surge,” 5,000 of the 63,000 migrant kids caught trying to cross US borders — or who turned themselves in for refuge — have been released to relatives or other “sponsors” in New York state. Most live with other illegal immigrants.

Illegal Immigration

Okay folks, here is President Obama's speech along with a bulletized presentation of the main points of his proposed illegal immigrant amnesty program.  From my perspective it is a very bad deal for Americans.  See what you think.    http://eaglerising.com/11687/obama-goes-alone-thumbs-nose-constitution/   Here is another take.  http://townhall.com/tipsheet/conncarroll/2014/11/21/everything-you-need-to-know-about-obamas-executive-amnesty-n1922199?

This is an analysis regarding the lawsuit challenging Obama's authority to enact amnesty by executive order filed by House of Representatives Speaker Boehner.  The analysis suggests that the Supreme Court will take up the matter and will be inclined to strike it down.   We will have to see. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/11/why_the_supreme_court_may_invalidate_obamas_amnesty.html

Quote:  "Offering “amnesty” for millions of “illegal aliens” or “undocumented aliens” acknowledges that some law has been broken. But one can only assume that Obama and Company would prefer that you skip over the definition where “amnesty” might, even in a remote way, actually be sort of a pardon for what would actually be a crime. Rather Obama would prefer that amnesty means that it’s just an accommodation for only a minor transgression like jaywalking. Sort of saying “Nothing to see here, so move along.”   http://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2014/11/just_why_are_illegal_aliens_not_criminal.html

Federal Government Threatens To Cut Food Stamp Funding To Maine In Photo I.D. Row

The federal government has threatened to cut funding for Maine's food stamp program, saying the state may be violating recipients' civil rights by requiring welfare cards to bear their photograph.

Maine began printing photos on electronic benefit (EBT) cards in July in an effort that Republican Governor Paul LePage said was designed to combat fraud.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture, which administers funding for the federal Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), said in a letter on Thursday that the state was now "at risk of losing Federal financial participation."


Most US unemployed don't get benefits: Here's why

Even though the U.S. job market is gaining strength, there are still a lot of unemployed Americans. Yet only a fraction of them are receiving financial aid from the government.
Fewer than 25 percent of those out of work are signed up for weekly unemployment benefits, a near-record low since the government began tracking this data in 1987. That's a sharp turnaround from just after the recession, when as many as three-quarters of those out of work received help, a record high.
The drop counters a common assumption that most of those out of work receive unemployment benefits. It is partly a sign of an improving job market: Layoffs have plummeted and Americans seem more confident in their prospects for finding a job. But the drop also reflects the fact that state and federal benefit programs have been downsized from where they were just a few years ago. Unemployment benefits had been extended nationwide for as long as 99 weeks in 2009.

FACT CHECK: Obama's claims on illegal immigration

President Barack Obama made some notable omissions Thursday night in his remarks about the unilateral actions he's taking on immigration.
A look at his statements and how they compare with the facts:
OBAMA: "It does not grant citizenship, or the right to stay here permanently, or offer the same benefits that citizens receive - only Congress can do that. All we're saying is we're not going to deport you."
THE FACTS: He's saying, and doing, more than that. The changes also will make those covered eligible for work permits, allowing them to be employed in the country legally and compete with citizens and legal residents for better-paying jobs.


Obama Immigration Speech: All Major Television Networks Snub President, White House Not Pleased

All the major U.S television networks decided against broadcasting President Obama’s immigration speech and the White House continues to be disappointed, reports Yahoo News.
President Obama’s prime time Thursday night speech on immigration reform, announcing that he was going to move forward with his immigration plans on his own using his executive powers, failed to attract the interest of CBS, NBC and ABC. Though the White House implored the networks to run President Obama’s pivotal immigration address, the networks didn’t want to listen.
According to Politico, the networks felt Obama’s speech was political and therefore decided against airing it instead of their normal prime time programs.



It's a good question... it deserves an honest answer. Over 80% of Americans demand secured borders and illegal migration stopped. But what would happen if all 20 million or more vacated America? The answers I found may surprise you!

In California, if 3.5 million illegal aliens moved back to Mexico, it would leave an extra $10.2 billion to spend on overloaded school systems, bankrupt hospitals and overrun prisons. It would leave highways cleaner, safer and less congested. Everyone could understand one another as English became the dominant language again.

In Colorado, 500,000 illegal migrants, plus their 300,000 kids and grandchildren would move back "home," mostly to Mexico. That would save Colorado an estimated $2 billion (other experts say $7 billion) annually in taxes that pay for schooling, medical, social-services and incarceration costs. It means 12,000 gang members would vanish out of Denver alone.

Colorado would save more than $20 million in prison costs, and the terror that those 7,300 alien criminals set upon local citizens. Denver Officer Don Young and hundreds of Colorado victims would not have suffered death, accidents, rapes and other crimes by illegals.
Denver Public Schools would not suffer a 67% dropout/flunk rate because of thousands of illegal alien students speaking 41 different languages. At least 200,000 vehicles would vanish from our gridlocked cities in Colorado. Denver's 4% unemployment rate would vanish as our working poor would gain jobs at a living wage.

In Florida, 1.5 million illegals would return the Sunshine State back to America, the rule of law, and English.
In Chicago, Illinois, 2.1 million illegals would free up hospitals, schools, prisons and highways for a safer, cleaner and more crime-free experience.

If 20 million illegal aliens returned 'home,' the U.S. Economy would return to the rule of law. Employers would hire legal American citizens at a living wage. Everyone would pay their fair share of taxes because they wouldn't be working off the books. That would result in an additional $401 billion in IRS income taxes collected annually, and an equal amount for local, state and city coffers.

No more push '1' for Spanish or '2' for English. No more confusion in American schools that now must contend with over 100 languages that degrade the educational system for American kids. Our overcrowded schools would lose more than two million illegal alien kids at a cost of billions in ESL and free breakfasts and lunches.

We would lose 500,000 illegal criminal alien inmates at a cost of more than $1.6 billion annually. That includes 15,000 MS-13 gang members who distribute $130 billion in drugs annually would vacate our country.

In cities like L.A., 20,000 members of the '18th Street Gang' would vanish from our nation. No more Mexican forgery gangs for ID theft from Americans! No more foreign rapists and child molesters!

Losing more than 2 million people would clear up our crowded highways and gridlock. Cleaner air and less drinking and driving American deaths by illegal aliens!

America's economy is drained. Taxpayers are harmed. Employers get rich. Over $80 billion annually wouldn't return to the aliens' home countries by cash transfers. Illegal migrants earned half that money untaxed, which further drains America's economy which currently suffers an $8.7 trillion debt. $8.7 trillion debt!!!

At least 400,000 anchor babies would not be born in our country, costing us $109 billion per year per cycle. At least 86 hospitals in California, Georgia and Florida would still be operating instead of being bankrupt out of existence because illegals pay nothing via the EMTOLA Act. Americans wouldn't suffer thousands of TB and hepatitis cases rampant in our country - brought in by illegals unscreened at our borders.

Our cities would see 20 million less people driving, polluting and grid locking our cities. It would also put the 'progressives' on the horns of a dilemma; illegal aliens and their families cause 11% of our greenhouse gases.

Over one million of Mexico's poorest citizens now live inside and along our border from Brownsville, Texas, to San Diego, California, in what the New York Times called, 'colonias' or new neighborhoods. Trouble is, those living areas resemble Bombay and Calcutta where grinding poverty, filth, diseases, drugs, crimes, no sanitation and worse. They live without sewage, clean water, streets, roads, electricity, or any kind of sanitation.

The New York Times reported them to be America's new 'Third World' inside our own country. Within 20 years, at their current growth rate, they expect 20 million residents of those colonias. (I've seen them personally in Texas and Arizona; it's sickening beyond anything you can imagine.)

By enforcing our laws, we could repatriate them back to Mexico. We should invite 20 million aliens to go home, fix their own countries and/or make a better life in Mexico. We already invite a million people into our country legally annually, more than all other countries combined. We cannot and must not allow anarchy at our borders, more anarchy within our borders and growing lawlessness at every level in our nation.

It's time to stand up for our country, our culture, our civilization and our way of life.

Interesting Statistics!
Here are 14 reasons illegal aliens should vacate America, and I hope they are forwarded over and over again until they are read so many times that the reader gets sick of reading them:
1. $14 billion to $22 billion dollars are spent each year on welfare to illegal aliens (that's Billion with a 'B')
3. $7.5 billion dollars are spent each year on Medicaid for illegal aliens.
4. $12 billion dollars are spent each year on primary and secondary school education for children here illegally and they still cannot speak a word of English!
5. $27 billion dollars are spent each year for education for the American-born children of illegal aliens, known as anchor babies.
6. $3 Million Dollars 'PER DAY' is spent to incarcerate illegal aliens. That's $1.2 Billion a year.
7. 28% percent of all federal prison inmates are illegal aliens.
8. $190 billion dollars are spent each year on illegal aliens for welfare & social services by the American taxpayers.
9. $200 billion dollars per year in suppressed American wages are caused by the illegal aliens.
10. The illegal aliens in the United States have a crime rate that's two and a half times that of white non-illegal aliens. In particular, their children, are going to make a huge additional crime problem in the US.
11. During the year 2005, there were 8 to 10 MILLION illegal aliens that crossed our southern border with as many as 19,500 illegal aliens from other terrorist countries. Over 10,000 of those were middle-eastern terrorists. Millions of pounds of drugs, cocaine, meth, heroin, crack, guns, and marijuana crossed into the U.S. from the southern border.
12. The National Policy Institute, estimates that the total cost of mass deportation would be between $206 and $230 billion, or an average cost of between $41 and $46 billion annually over a five year period.
13. In 2006, illegal aliens sent home $65 BILLION in remittances back to their countries of origin, to their families and friends.
14. The dark side of illegal immigration: Nearly one million sex crimes are committed by illegal immigrants in the United States!

Total cost a whopping $538.3 BILLION DOLLARS A YEAR!

This is pure unadulterated irresponsible foolishness on the part of President Obama.  He is committing $100 billion American taxpayer dollars to solve a "problem" of increasingly dubious merit.  The US is hopelessly in debt, only constitutes approximately 2% of the earth's surface and can ill afford to continue spending (wasting) taxpayer money on something that in reality is more of a political matter having little if any scientific credibility.   http://www.fixthisnation.com/conservative-breaking-news/scientist-makes-excuses-for-15-year-global-warming-hiatus/    Yet the president has decided he knows best and will waste $100 billion tilting at windmills.   http://www.fixthisnation.com/conservative-breaking-news/obamas-climate-change-plans-100-billion-price-tag/ 

This is science we are suppose to believe in and use to make major funding decisions?  Who in their right mind would even consider putting any credibility in any conclusions drawn from such a mess?   http://www.mrc.org/articles/five-years-climategate-ten-credibility-killing-quotes-data-files-media-ignored

Education And Such

Regarding the travesty known as Common Core, after this short piece you should understand one of the reasons why so many, including me, are vehemently opposed to it.  It has nothing to do with education.  It has everything to do with liberal self loathing.  Quote:  "The reason why I helped write the standards and the reason why I am here today is that as a White male in society I am given a lot of privilege that I didn’t earn,"  This is the illogical reason one of the authors of this travesty helped build it.   http://eaglerising.com/10962/need-another-reason-hate-common-core-listen-liberal-helped-write/

Two more states are considering dropping Common Core.  http://dailysignal.com/2014/11/12/two-states-eye-repeal-common-core/? 

Islam is entering our public schools.  Anyone who thinks this is a good idea is hopelessly wedded to the progressive agenda.  Double standards abound.  Think about it if anything Christian is even hinted at the progressive school system and atheists go banana.  Where has common sense gone?  http://survivaljoe.net/blog/is-this-how-obamas-schools-will-pave-the-way-for-terrorist-training-at-home/  

The progressive agenda is destroying any sense of common sense within our schools.  The madness needs to stop.  Read this.   http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/public-school-kids-seen-but-not-heard/

There are those who believe our public schools are just find and do a great job educating our kids.  Well, consider this.  http://patriotnewsdaily.com/schools-teaching-warped-version-of-bill-of-rights/  

This is totally unacceptable behavior on the part of this school.  It is an unfortunate consequence of political correctness.   http://2ndamendmentinsider.com/youll-be-disgusted-when-you-discover-the-reason-a-school-forced-a-5-year-old-to-sign-a-suicide-contract/

And what about this?  You cannot dismiss this item out of hand.  There are far too many examples to do so.  There have been several in our area in just the past year alone.   http://preservefreedom.org/are-public-schools-becoming-safe-havens-for-sexual-predators/   And then there are some schools teaching "how to do it" to 5th and 6th graders.  Have we gone crazy or what?   http://eaglerising.com/11466/parents-shocked-disgusting-sex-ed-curriculum-chicago-public-elementary-schools/
With liberal educators like this no wonder the nation is in trouble.  It is amazing how they have their facts all wrong and promote policies that have been repeatedly proven to be total failures. http://finance.townhall.com/columnists/michaelschaus/2014/11/13/professor-hopes-to-repeal-outdated-2nd-amendment-n1918011

What They Do & Say

Taxpayers are really taking it in the shorts with a poorly run postal service.  In this case congress is the likely culprit in not addressing a long standing drain on taxpayer resources.  The postal service should be privatized and removed from political shenanigans.  Those of us who use the postal service not only pay for our postage but contribute to billions in taxpayer funded subsidies provided each year to keep it afloat.    http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/dysfunctional-u-s-postal-service-loses-5-5-billion/

This professor who teaches unsavory subjects should be fired despite her tenured status.  That she is a member of the faculty and teaches what she does is a disgrace to the school she works for.   http://preservefreedom.org/watch-what-a-prn-professor-does-to-students-protesting-abortion/  

This gay rights leader raped a 15 year old boy.  Is that okay?   http://eaglerising.com/11676/gay-founder-human-rights-campaign-found-guilty-raping-15-year-old-boy/

She is simply so enamored with herself she does not recognize that her fellow Democrats do not agree with her leadership style and policies.  It has nothing to do with her being a woman.  http://unfilteredpatriot.com/pelosi-rejects-her-critics-as-sexist/  Unfortunately for the Democrats they did the wrong thing by keeping her in her leadership position. 

The liberal mantra is the it is they who care for the needy and downtrodden and that Republicans and conservatives don't.  But the evidence, according to the liberal cited in this article, is that the exact opposite is true.   http://teapartybulletin.com/truth-liberal-generosity/  

I have this question.  Does Obama's obstinacy in not approving the Keystone pipeline politically based or based on science?  You may find the answer here.   http://eaglerising.com/11639/democrats-become-anti-environment-party/

Despite all the available evidence proving him wrong it is truly sad that he cannot/will not face the truth of his compulsive lying.  He really believes he can lie his way out of his lies. http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/11/obama_claims_obamacare_not_deceptively_marketed.html

Some Muslim Issues - Not Good

These are just some of the problems resulting from President Obama and his promoting Islam since taking office.  Provided are a mix of actions taken by Muslims here and around the world.

This is a tradition in the Muslim world.  You may be disturbed by some of the images.  http://eaglerising.com/11153/muslim-men-children-beat-bloody-americas-streets/

Nor do they like Jews.  Here is what terrorists did in a Jewish temple in Jerusalem. Quote:  "Early this morning, four rabbis were murdered in Jerusalem as they gathered for morning prayers.  The attackers left behind bibles and prayer shawls soaked in Jewish blood.  The victims left behind 24 fatherless children. Our prayers are with the victims’ families."    http://makeadifference.cufi.org/

We love our family dogs.  But Muslims do not.  http://eaglerising.com/11144/muslims-really-hate-dogs-one-public-get-74-lashes/

Have women's rights people been raising their voices in protest of these type actions?  If so, not very loud.   http://raisetheflagreport.com/what-isis-did-to-a-woman-who-fought-off-a-rapist-is-beyond-horrific/  

And here.   http://preservefreedom.org/find-out-which-holidays-were-taken-off-the-school-calendar-after-muslims-complained/   Muslim complaints carry weight.  Christian complaints are ignored. 

Interesting item.  I had never heard of this group before and found the comments offered by the author instructive.    http://eaglerising.com/11338/muslims-peace/

Realistic Looks At Racism

This man is not only very wise but is one of my favorite commentators.  This item is worthy of the brief time it takes to read.  http://humanevents.com/2014/11/19/racial-quota-punishment/?  Now, be sure to listen to him in this brief interview.  Bear in mind that he is a former Marxist.   http://teapartybulletin.com/watch-thomas-sowell-clarify-liberals-vs-conservatives-in-less-than-5-minutes-video/

Consider this black man's commentary.  "It's no coincidence that the flames of racial tension were set ablaze during the 2012 presidential campaign after the death of Trayvon Martin, and yet again for Michael Brown who was killed on the eve of this year's midterms. Liberals, whether in the media or government, "never let a good crisis go to waste." Unfortunately, it's the families and communities of the victims that are left behind that pay the price of the Left's irresponsible race baiting long after the media has left the scene, and democrats have driven another phony racist narrative in order to keep black voters mad and others divided. Apparently, it's acceptable to hold police officers in places like Ferguson, Missouri accountable for the death of a black teen as long as the officer is white, but God forbid blacks are held accountable for all of the deaths that result from black-on-black crime in every major city around the country annually."  and  "This double standard has done more damage than good to the black community. Far too many blacks are incapable of distinguishing real black heroes from convenient black heroes."  http://townhall.com/columnists/carljackson/2014/11/18/black-thugs-arent-black-heroes-n1920379?

His legacy of racial bigotry continues to grow.  Quote: "Earlier this year when President Obama nominated cop killer advocate Debo Adegbile to head up the Civil Rights Division of the Department of Justice, Attorney General Eric Holder applauded the move."   And   "Now, Holder has sided with a new set of alleged cop killers in Virginia by taking the death penalty out of consideration for four gang members who kidnapped and murdered Police Officer Kevin Quick."     http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2014/11/19/eric-holder-sides-with-cop-killers-again-n1920311?

People use numbers in interesting ways to make their point.  All of us need to be careful when doing so.  Here is an example of why courtesy of a most reasonable man. http://humanevents.com/2014/11/18/a-legacy-of-liberalism/?

Somehow this does not seem right.  His own irresponsible behavior should serve as evidence that he is not qualified to serve as anyone's role model or catered to. http://www.nytimes.com/2014/11/19/nyregion/questions-about-al-sharptons-finances-accompany-his-rise-in-influence.html?

Goings On With President. Obama

Petulance.  Quote:  "The president delayed his executive amnesty to help several embattled Democratic senators — Mark L. Pryor in Arkansas, Mary L. Landrieu in Louisiana, Kay R. Hagan in North Carolina, Mark Udall in Colorado and Mark Begich in Alaska — and they lost, or are about to lose, anyway.  Mr. Obama is said to be pouting, because none of the Democratic incumbents wanted to be seen in public with him, so great was the partisan stench. They wouldn’t fall on their swords for him, so why should he care?"   http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2014/nov/17/wes-pruden-shootout-time-on-the-potomac/

This is simply unbelievable after all the evidence that has been presented.  As as has often been said he believes his lies are true.   http://unfilteredpatriot.com/obama-claims-he-never-misled-public-on-healthcare/

The man has no core values that are compatible with our nation's historic values.  Most of his pre-presidency positions are diametrically opposite the ones he now holds.  The only conclusion I can draw is that he lied his way to the White House and started revealing his true positions once in office.  Here is one example.   http://dailycaller.com/2014/11/16/shock-flashback-obama-says-illegal-immigration-hurts-blue-collar-americans-strains-welfare-video/   Not convinced?  Read this.  http://www.americanthinker.com/blog/2014/11/didnt_anyone_in_the_hispanic_media_read_obamas_book.html

Consider this.  These are some of the people in the Middle East that our American President supports.  Recently he said that too many Palestinians have died  and that is certainly true.  But, he failed to mention that most of those deaths resulted from Israeli defensive reactions to constant aggression by Hamas operations from within Palestine.  Not to mention that Hamas purposely puts innocent Palestinian women and children in harms way for at least two reasons:  One, to try and deter retaliatory Israeli strikes and two, to cause the public outcry they know will come from press coverage of the tragic results.  http://townhall.com/tipsheet/katiepavlich/2014/11/18/watch-gaza-celebrate-the-slaughter-of-americans-in-israel-n1920525?

This documents an interesting exchange between the President's press secretary and a White House correspondent.  It places the president in the bulls eye of past statements that are now haunting him.  It has to be a hard job working as press secretary for someone who dissembles and lies as often as Obama.   http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/video-white-house-asked-if-obama-thinks-hes-emperor/

What They Do & Say

Following the money on the government's illegal immigration policies puts liberal donors in the crosshairs of partisan politics.  Quote: "Naturally, to run such a story the Times had to spend much of the article making sure the reader knew that these organizations were coming from an apolitical stance. They were interested in philanthropy, and they are driven by a moral compass that stands apart from Washington politics. It’s not until nearly the end of the story that we get to hear the other side of that claim. Dan Stein of the Federation for American Immigration Reform, which stands against amnesty, said, “The whole apparatus has become the handmaiden of the Democratic Party. These foundations fund activist organizations designed to create ethnic identity enclaves and politically control them for partisan purposes.”  http://unfilteredpatriot.com/follow-the-money-top-immigration-reform-donors/

This is just more evidence of the tactics used by the White House and its operatives in Congress and the media to get laws the political left want but cannot pass unless built on lies.  Quote:  "The bald-faced lies told to pass Obamacare expose not only that law, but all Democratic economic claims. When Obama boasts that it will be a huge boon to the economy to give amnesty to millions of low-wage workers, who won't pay income taxes but will need a lot of government services, remember: Obamacare was supposed to save money, too."   http://townhall.com/columnists/anncoulter/2014/11/19/isnt-jonathan-gruber-worse-than-the-downing-street-memo-n1921260?

Some of our current crop of school leaders have lost all sense of respect for history and recognition of people with "real" accomplishments.  This is just another indication of the decay that is so prominent in many of our public schools.   http://www.teaparty.org/school-removes-historical-hall-heroes-paintings-replaces-images-obama-oprah-celebrities-67498/

60% Of Households Get More Benefits Than They Pay In Taxes

The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) just released its annual report on “The Distribution of Household Income and Federal Taxes [11]” analyzing data through 2011 on American household’s: a) average “market income” (a comprehensive measure that includes labor income, business income, and income from capital gains), b) average household transfer payments (payments and benefits from federal, state and local governments including Social Security, Medicare and unemployment insurance), and c) average federal taxes paid by households (including income, payroll, corporate, and excise taxes).
Some additional analysis and commentary will be provided here that reveal a yet-to-be discussed major implication of the CBO report – almost the entire burden: a) of all transfer payments made to American households and b) of all non-financed government spending, falls on just one group of Americans – the top one-fifth of US households by income.
That’s correct, the CBO study shows that the bottom three income quintiles representing 60% of US households are “net recipients” (they receive more in transfer payments than they pay in federal taxes), the second-highest income quintile pays just slightly more in federal taxes ($14,800) than it receives in government transfer payments ($14,100), while the top 20% of American “net payer” households finance 100% of the transfer payments to the bottom 60%, as well as almost 100% of the tax revenue collected to run the federal government. Here are the details of that analysis.


Don’t Let Lame Ducks Spend Your Money

On November 4, voters fired the Democratic majority in the U.S. Senate, replacing it with a GOP majority that campaigned against Obamacare and big spending. But the Democrats who lost are still running the show. These lame ducks lack the moral authority to govern. They shouldn’t be allowed to do any more than the bare minimum to keep government operating until January, when the new Congress meets. Allowing Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid to ram through an omnibus spending bill for the coming year, or make other key decisions, would be like letting your ex-spouse keep using your checkbook. One of the first acts of the next Congress should be to outlaw lame duck sessions.
Lame duck sessions were unavoidable before jet planes. The framers of the U.S. Constitution provided 17 weeks for newly elected lawmakers to travel and take their seats on March 3. That was the 18th century.


How ObamaCare Turned Insurers Into Big Gov't Lovers

he New York Times this week reports that ObamaCare has made strange bedfellows between the insurance industry and the federal government. Who could have imagined that?
Just before the 2012 elections, we wrote in this space that, should President Obama get re-elected, repealing ObamaCare would be virtually impossible because the law "will have fundamentally reshaped the insurance market."
A few months later, we alerted readers again that after insurers "conformed their businesses to the many market distortions it will create," even those that once opposed ObamaCare "could end up lobbying for it."
In January this year, we pointed to a set of Blue Cross Blue Shield Association talking points, in which its CEO warned about "momentum that is quickly building among some leading conservatives" for a bill to defund the law's huge industry bailout programs.
Well, now The New York Times has discovered that, lo and behold, "the relationship between the Obama administration and insurers has evolved into a powerful, mutually beneficial partnership."

About President Obama

Walter Williams has it exactly right.  http://townhall.com/columnists/walterewilliams/2014/11/19/obama-vs-us-n1919775?Can you believe this? 

Is this poking Bill Clinton in the eye or being obstinate in the face of Republican election victories?   http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/obama-ag-pick-was-clinton-bimbo-eruption-fixer/

This highlights Obama's sexist views and touches on his racist views.   http://teapartybulletin.com/watch-obama-prove-that-he-is-sexist-video/

Now you tell me he is helping race relations.  He met with black protesters in secret.  Why?  If he wanted to help he would have met them in public so that everyone knew what he had to say.   http://www.thegatewaypundit.com/2014/11/obama-meets-with-ferguson-activists-says-hes-concerned-they-stay-on-course/

Obama who says he is looking out for the middle class has yet another tax for us up his sleeve. Quote: "There is near unanimity in Congress that state or local taxes on Internet access would directly deter the ability of consumers to obtain and utilize the Internet," he said. "If that is an accepted premise, the same concept should apply to the net neutrality debate and its certainty to increase consumer bills.”  http://www.foxnews.com/politics/2014/11/17/fcc-official-warns-obama-backed-net-neutrality-plan-will-bring-backdoor-tax-on/?

His sense of the law and understanding of economics are not only changeable given what he wants to do but also constitute encumbrances to his fantasies.   http://finance.townhall.com/columnists/petermorici/2014/11/18/obamas-peculiar-view-of-economics-and-law-n1920137

If you read this all they way to the end you will be absolutely convinced that Obama is indeed a pathological liar.  In fact if you get bored with some of the content and read the multiple examples of his total dishonesty.   http://www.wnd.com/2014/11/limbaugh-unloads-obama-is-a-sociopathic-liar/

The Obama Administration’s War on Immigration Enforcement

Reports that the Obama administration had been actively abetting the smuggling of illegal immigrants into the country are merely the latest example of the administration’s longstanding efforts to ignore existing immigration laws. The office of Senator Jeff Sessions (R., Ala.) has compiled the following extensive timeline of the administration’s “systematic dismantling of immigration enforcement”:
Many Americans may not be aware that a law enforcement officer who apprehends someone for speeding and discovers the person is illegally in the country does nothing. They just release them on the spot. It is even being applied to people in prison and jails.
How did we get here?
In early 2009 there was an Immigration and Customs Enforcement raid, initiated and planned while President Bush was in office.
