Obama's idea of 'immigration reform' is very simple. Leave the boarders open, let the states take the whole cost burden of illegals, give amnesty for all. Tell them to vote Democrat for the rest of their lives, just as the Blacks are suckered into doing. Otherwise those mean Republicans will send you all back! THIS is what Democrats call 'immigration reform', and it's a fraud on the tax paying public. Republicans can't trust Obama, much less if real reforms were enacted, to enforce all parts of the law. Obama administration refuses to enforce immigration laws already on the books, and any so called new reforms would again be selective enforced to the benefit of Democrats, not the country.
Another classic example is Obama Care, for selective enforcement of the laws that only serve the Democrats best interests, not the public. It's all about how many new voters Democrats can gain, not about the good of the county. Democrats are quite willing to sell out of country to gain power!!! It's just this corrupt administration has taken it to a new level never seen before!
One thing for sure, your postings do go to prove just how smart you are! Craigie, for those who may have not seen it, can you tell us again about your life's great success story? I know your so humble, but don't skip anything.
Sort of like Obama isn't it, Craigie? Only this time the Democrats sent attack dogs from DOJ, even they were unable to make anything stick on Christie.
"We cannot blame the white people any longer"? Of course they can and will until the end of time. They can't blame themselves, so it always must be someone else who's fault it is. Slavery, Thomas Jefferson, #$%$, Government, Republicans, Tea Party, anyone except looking at themselves in a mirror for the answer. It's a fact Blacks & Liberals are always ready to pull the race card out as a tool to prove it's everyone else fault for the problems self imposed upon themselves.
This is why no one in the Black community is listening to the few Black Bill Cosby's that dare to tell Blacks the truth. It's those who call others racist that are the real racist. You only have to listen to the message of hate they continue to spread when attacking others as racist..
" I've been playing chess on line"! Must also be hard on you trying to figure out how to cheat at chess on line, but I am sure you will figure it out.
Can we assume your finally done playing with yourself now, or just taking a break?
"ISIS type rampage killing all rational people"! That being the case, you have nothing to worry about.
Your idea of being "democratic" is rubber stamping everything Obama wants. Forget about checks and balances, just make the Senate & Congress a puppet for an incompetent dictator. What you want is a socialist system that's totally controlled by Government and a dictator, not a free Democratic system. Never mind socialism has always been a flawed system that ends up enslaving it's citizens, for the benefit of a selected few. Socialism is spread by lies, as you well know by your own actions.
Harry Reid is sitting on 350 bills passed by Congress that are DOA as soon as they are dropped on his desk. Many bills were bipartisan!!
" It is the presidents job to consider both military AND diplomatic aspects". Oh yes, we know how well qualified he is for that job. Six years of his blundering continues today.
Craigie, your always dim witted on this subject (among others), yet you always keep bringing it up. The issue is not congress, but instead trying to get Harry Reid to function! Harry Reid does the bidding of Obama, so as we all know (except you), both get the 'bottle neck award'. Over 350 congress passed bills sitting in Reid's waste paper basket.
Pelley: Back when you watched the stars and stripes being lowered for the last time in Baghdad, were you confident in that moment that pulling out was the right thing to do?
Panetta: No, I wasn't. I really thought that it was important for us to maintain a presence in Iraq.
But the elected Prime Minister, Nouri Al-Maliki didn't want the U.S. force. As Iraq moved on, on its own, civil war broke out in Syria. The U.S. stayed largely on the sidelines but Panetta says the national security team urged the president to do more.
Panetta: The real key was how can we develop a leadership group among the opposition that would be able to take control. And my view was to have leverage to do that, we would have to provide the weapons and the training in order for them to really be willing to work with us in that effort.
Pelley: But with virtually his entire national security team unanimous on this, that's not the decision the president made.
Panetta: I think the president's concern, and I understand it, was that he had a fear that if we started providing weapons, we wouldn't know where those weapons would wind up... My view was, "You have to begin somewhere."
Vice President Biden, speaking to a Democratic women’s forum, had an awkward moment Friday as he praised former Sen. Bob Packwood -- who was forced out of Congress over sexual harassment claims.
The vice president invoked the former Republican senator while addressing the Democratic National Committee's women's leadership forum.
The speech was largely devoted to highlighting the need to fight domestic violence against young women. But he also launched into an argument about how Republicans have changed since he was in the Senate, as he made his case for why Democrats need to hold their ground in the midterms.
He cited past GOP efforts to expand voter registration legislation, mentioning the late Maryland Sen. Charles "Mac" Mathias and Packwood.
“It’s Republicans that were involved, guys like Mac Mathias and Packwood and so many others. It wasn’t Democrats involved,” Biden said. “So I’m not joking, this is not your father’s Republican Party or your mother’s Republican Party.”
Problem is, Packwood was forced to resign from the Senate in 1995 after several women accused him of making unwanted or uninvited sexual advances.
Asked about the reference, Biden’s office told Fox News: “Throughout his entire career, the vice president has been a leading voice in the fight to stop violence against women.”
White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest also pointed to Biden’s record on women’s issues when asked about the remarks.
It’s been a rocky week for Biden, who in a speech earlier this week used the term “Shylocks,” which is considered by some to be an offensive term for Jews. Biden later voiced regret for the remarks. He also described Asia as “the Orient.”
Biden used the bulk of his remarks on Friday to tackle domestic violence. He said the administration would be unrelenting "to make it clear that it is cowardly not to step up."
"There is an absolute obligation, a moral obligation, to step up and intervene and say something," Biden said.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie’s longstanding claims that he had nothing to do with the controversial closure of bridge lanes a year ago appear to have been buoyed by a new report saying no evidence of a Christie connection has turned up.
NBC affiliate Channel 4 in New York quoted unnamed federal officials saying that after nine months of a federal investigation, they have found no evidence the Republican governor had any knowledge of, or directed, the lane closures on the George Washington Bridge in September of last year.
Christie, addressing the report on his “Ask the Governor” show on NJ 101.5 FM, said he wasn’t surprised by the report, because as he has said before, he had nothing to do with the closures, no matter what his political rivals say.
“Obviously we will wait to hear what whatever the authorities have to say, but this report comes as no shock to me,” said Christie, who is still thought to be mulling a 2016 presidential run.
Christie went on to say an internal report released last year exonerating the governor was “pretty much excoriated at the time” as being a whitewash -- but now “appears to be true.”
Justice Department officials would not confirm the latest report when reached by Fox News.
PHOENIX -- Police say Arizona Cardinals running back Jonathan Dwyer head-butted his wife after she refused his sexual advances, and broke her nose.
The details surfaced Thursday in a law enforcement report a day after Dwyer was arrested on aggravated assault charges and deactivated from all team activities. He spent a night in jail and was released early Thursday.
CBS affiliate KPHO-TV reports that Dwyer was released about 5 a.m. Thursday morning on $25,000 bond. He mumbled something to reporters, and when asked if he would play football again, he said, "I will." He then got into a taxi and was driven away.
NFL's struggle to "get it right": Another player faces domestic abuse charges
The altercation occurred on July 21 at their Phoenix residence. The next day, another dispute between the couple turned violent when Dwyer punched his wife in the face and struck his 17-month-old son in the stomach with a shoe, according to the report. The son wasn't injured.
In a police interview, Dwyer denied committing an assault, though he acknowledged that he punched walls in his home, threw a phone and that his wife bit his lip during the disputes.
So Obama can't be a Muslim because he ordered to bombing of Muslims? Isn't that just the point, Muslims been killing each other from day one so that don't mean he's not. Of course he can be a Muslim, though I doubt he is. As a self anointed expert 'Marxist' (what a joke you think it's something to drag about), Obama will be happy to learn he's not! On this I agree he's not, he's clearly a 'socialist' without a doubt. Anyone with an ounce of intelligence knows what a failure 'socialism' has been, and is today.
Word is being floated out by the Administration that to arm and train rebels in Syria will cost at the least $100,000 per person!!!! Even some Democrats already are suffering shell shock at such an off the wall cost with questionable results. We train them, then they turn on us, without a doubt!!
The White House acknowledged Wednesday that President Obama would consider putting U.S. troops in "forward-deployed positions" to advise Iraqi forces in the fight against the Islamic State -- even while insisting U.S. troops would not be sent back into a "combat role" in Iraq.
Obama and his top advisers appeared to be threading a needle as they carefully clarified how exactly U.S. troops might be used, a day after Joint Chiefs Chairman Gen. Martin Dempsey opened the door to approving "U.S. military ground forces."
The White House continued to insist Wednesday that a "combat" role has in fact been ruled out, and that U.S. troops will not be engaging the Islamic State on the ground.
Speaking at MacDill Air Force Base in Tampa, after visiting U.S. Central Command, Obama told troops: "I will not commit you and the rest of our Armed Forces to fighting another ground war in Iraq."
He vowed that the U.S. forces currently deployed to Iraq to advise Iraqi forces "will not have a combat mission." Instead, he said, they will continue to support Iraqi forces on the ground, through a combination of U.S. air power, training assistance and other means.
But shortly afterward, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest clarified that Dempsey was talking about the possible need to put U.S. troops already in Iraq into "forward-deployed positions with Iraqi troops."
Earnest said that step has not yet been necessary, but if Dempsey asks to "forward deploy" American advisers, "the president said he would consider it on a case-by-case basis."
He said, in that scenario, U.S. troops "would be providing tactical advice to Iraqi security forces" or be in position to call in airstrikes.
"They would not have a combat role. They would not be personally or directly engaging the enemy," Earnest stressed. (Of course not, at least for today)!! Tomorrow a new day, more confusion.
FBI Director James Comey said in written testimony to Congress Wednesday that Americans within reach of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS, also known as ISIL) may be at risk of being kidnapped.
"We are deeply concerned about the safety and security of American citizens worldwide," Comey said in his written testimony ahead of a hearing in front of the House Homeland Security Committee.
"ISIL (better know by the world as ISIS), and other foreign terrorist organizations may continue to try to capture American hostages in an attempt to force the U.S. government and people into making concessions that would only strengthen ISIL and further its terrorist operations."
Obama on those who killed James Foley: "America does not forget" (on his way to golf course).
Over the summer, ISIS beheaded two kidnapped American journalists, James Foley and Steven Sotloff, after the U.S. began conducting airstrikes against the group to protect American assets in the region and help deliver humanitarian aid to a group of trapped religious minorities that ISIS was threatening to kill.
The curtain has come down on Climate Change: The Musical and reviews of the taxpayer-funded play about global warming are downright icy.
The play, which is actually entitled "The Great Immensity," and was produced by Brooklyn-based theater company The Civilians, Inc. with a $700,000 grant from the National Science Foundation, ended its run early amid a storm of criticism from reviewers and lawmakers alike. It opened a year late, reached just five percent of its anticipated audience and likely fell short of its ambitious goal of informing a new generation about the perceived dangers of man-caused climate change.
Plus, it apparently wasn't very good.
“Despite fine performances, the musical mystery tour is an uneasy mix of fact and credulity-stretching fiction. It’s neither flora nor fauna,” New York Daily News reviewer Joe Dziemianowicz wrote in a review at the time. “[The] songs — whether about a doomed passenger pigeon or storm-wrecked towns — feel shoehorned in and not, pardon the pun, organic.”
The play, which featured songs and video exploring Americans’ relationships to the environment, opened in New York in April with a three-week run before going on a national tour that was supposed to attract 75,000 patrons. But it stalled after a single production in Kansas City, falling short of the lofty goals outlined in a grant proposal. It was envisioned as a chance to create "an experience that would be part investigative journalism and part inventive theater,” help the public "better appreciate how science studies the Earth’s biosphere” and increase “public awareness, knowledge and engagement with science-related societal issues.”
It's all a bad joke until the rest of the world gets on board. Until then, we are just wasting jobs, businesses, money. We are shooting ourselves in the foot, while everyone else takes advantage of us and goes laughing to the bank.
