Of America’s four national newspapers, only the New York Times’ editorial board is satisfied with President Obama’s plan to act on immigration reform without Congress. Obama on Thursday announced that he would issue an executive order to delay deportation for some 5 million immigrants now living in the United States illegally. “The president always has had authority to calibrate and prioritize the enforcement of immigration (and other) laws, but this wholesale reinterpretation amounts to overreaching,” the Washington Post editorial board said in response. “Mr. Obama was right to argue Thursday that otherwise law-abiding undocumented immigrants deserve a route out of

Bill Cosby: Why Now?

I don´t know if Bill Cosby drugged and raped women over the past four decades. No one in the media knows, either – not the ladies on The View, not MSNBC, not the Washington Post, and certainly not black feminists calling for his head. CNN´s Don Lemon doesn´t know, either. (snip)a peripheral question emerges from the barrage of coverage this story has received: why has the mainstream media suddenly come down on the 77-year-old former TV star like a proverbial ton of bricks when allegations of sexual assault have been swirling around Cosby for decades? Cosby´s latest troubles started when a

In a new Facebook video released by the White House, President Obama reflects on his historic immigration reform speech by reminding Americans why he had to act to give illegal immigrants amnesty. Obama explained he understood that most Americans were frustrated with people who were breaking the law and cutting the line by coming into the country illegally. With a soft piano soundtrack in the background, Obama helpfully explained to Facebook viewers that “it just comes down to people.” “You hear stories about young people who were brought here when they were two or three years old - are as



Major Obama fundraiser

WASHINGTON — He’s a mega bundler for President Obama. He’s been on Air Force One. He’s shared a Christmas visit with Michelle Obama at the White House. And now he’s being accused of sex with a minor. Terry Bean, 66, a gay activist and major Democratic fund-raiser, was arrested Wednesday in Portland, Ore., for allegedly having sex with a 15-year-old boy. Bean’s ex-boyfriend, Kiah Lawson, 25, was arrested Thursday in connection with the same incident. The arrests follow an angry breakup between the couple, where Bean accused his former boyfriend of extortion after Lawson gained access to hidden video images

While speaking at a swanky event Friday night in New York City, Hillary Clinton speculated about the immigration status of the people serving food and beverages at the gala. (Tweet) Clinton made the remarks at the New York Historical Society, according to MSNBC reporter Alex Seitz-Wald. She endorsed President Obama’s recent move to grant amnesty to 5 million illegal immigrants. “I think the president took an historic step and I support it,” Clinton said, according to the Associated Press.

President Obama has liberated
the GOP from passing an immigration bill
American Thinker, by Silvio Canto, Jr.    Original Article

The conventional wisdom is that President Obama has put the GOP in a no-win situation over immigration reform. In other words, pass a bill or you will be labeled anti-immigrant. See The New Republic´s position: There’s the growing risk that conservative anger will force Republicans to do something epically stupid in the near term, like shut down the government. I disagree with that conclusion. The GOP will react by challenging President Obama in the courts, and that´s the right approach. The politics of this will eventually play against President Obama, or exactly the reason that Democrats did not want to talk

WASHINGTON--President Barack Obama on Friday signed executive actions on immigration in Las Vegas and delivered a speech to sell his moves and cajole Republicans in Congress to call a vote on an immigration bill. Said Obama, "I told (House Speaker) John Boehner, I’ll wash your car, I’ll walk your dog -- -- whatever you need to do, just call the bill. That’s how democracy is supposed to work. And if the votes hadn’t been there, then we would have had to start over. But at least give it a shot -- and he didn’t do it." THE WHITE HOUSE -Office



What’s Distinctive About Democrats’
Losses Under Obama? Their Magnitude.
Wall Street Journal, by Rhodes Cook    Original Article

When Barack Obama was inaugurated nearly six years ago, Democrats ruled the roost in the nation’s capital, with solid majorities in the Senate and House of Representatives. Now, after Mr. Obama’s second midterm election, Democrats are a distinct minority on both sides of the Capitol. That in itself is not unusual. Mr. Obama’s two most recent predecessors, Democrat Bill Clinton and Republican George W. Bush, were in similar positions at the six-year mark of their presidencies: with congressional majorities in the president’s party giving way to the hegemony of the opposition. And six years into his presidency, Ronald Reagan saw

It really hasn´t been that long since President Obama´s last visit to Del Sol High School in Las Vegas. It was only 661 days ago that he launched the immigration push he hoped would give him the first big legislative victory of his second term. But to really measure how much political time has passed all you had to do was watch the president´s return to the home of the Dragons on Friday and hear his adjusted assessment of the current immigration debate. Though he ended his remarks with a rousing and emotional appeal that brought his audience to their feet,

WASHINGTON - U.S. President Barack Obama´s executive action easing the threat of deportation for 4.7 million undocumented immigrants is unlikely to cover many of those eligible because of practical hurdles, immigration lawyers said. High application costs, extensive documentation requirements and lengthy waiting periods for approval sharply reduced participation in a 2012 executive action aimed at undocumented immigrants brought to the United States by their parents as children, and the process is expected to be even more arduous this time around, the lawyers said. Only 44 percent of the 1.2 million eligible immigrants under the 2012 order had been approved after two years,

U.S. Postal Service employees in San Francisco move 32 percent less mail per hour than the typical processing and distribution center for the rest of the nation, according to a watchdog report. “While the San Francisco P&DC has increased efficiency, there are more opportunities for improvement. We found it did not attain the efficiency achieved by similarly sized P&DCs,” said the USPS inspector general in a report made public Thursday. “Specifically, in fiscal year 2013, the San Francisco P&DC processed mail at a rate of 795 pieces per work-hour, whereas the similarly sized P&DC at the median productivity level processed mail at

Members of the militant New Black Panther Party have been arrested and charged with making straw purchases of two handguns and are believed to have conspired to detonate pipe bombs during protests in Ferguson, Missouri, according to several reports. Brandon Baldwin, who goes by the name Brandon Muhammad, and Olajuwon Davis, who goes by Olajuwon Ali, were indicted on Wednesday for making false statements in order to purchase two .45 ACP pistols at a Cabela’s in Hazelwood, just outside of Ferguson, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

Obama’s ‘America’

President Obama told us yesterday that we must legalize millions of illegal aliens because America is “a creed, an idea” — and is not what he calls “a bloodline.” The latter is an ugly term, hinting at Nazi-style racism, but what it caricatures is a more accurate view: that America is a concrete country with a concrete citizenry that has concrete habits, institutions, and mutual relations and obligations. Obama buttressed his view by pulling out the line that America is “a nation of immigrants,” with only the “idea” to hold itself together and make that nation “America.” In reality, America was

Hillary Clinton remains the overwhelming favorite to win the Democratic presidential nomination in 2016. However, some liberals are beginning to question her inevitability. Clinton is likely to have at least one challenger in the Democratic primary. Former Senator Jim Webb, for example, announced a 2016 exploratory committee in a retro web video on Wednesday. FiveThiryEight suggests he would make a good “anti-Clinton” candidate. In the video, Webb describes a Democratic Party that has lost its way and has lost touch with America’s working class. “The Democratic Party used to be the place where people like these could come not for a handout

Legal but Still Poor: The Economic
Consequences of Amnesty

Expanding amnesty to undocumented immigrants without creating new jobs is a recipe for keeping new Americans poor and dependent on social services. With his questionably Constitutional move to protect America’s vast undocumented population, President Obama has provided at least five million immigrants, and likely many more, with new hope for the future. But at the same time, his economic policies, and those of the progressive wing of the Democratic Party, may guarantee that many of these newly legalized Americans will face huge obstacles trying to move up in a society creating too few opportunities already for its own citizens, much less

ST. LOUIS — One morning late last month, a St. Louis courtroom filled up with prosecutors, lawyers and press who wondered if they’d catch a glimpse of a vanished man. The man, police officer Darren Wilson, hadn’t been seen in public since Aug. 9, when he shot and killed an unarmed black teenager and found himself in a wave of national fury. But here, at this unrelated preliminary hearing, Wilson had incentive to appear. He’d been asked to to provide testimony against an alleged low-level drug dealer — somebody he’d wrestled to the ground and handcuffed 20 months earlier, in

Bill Cosby raped me. Sorry, it just seemed like the “in” thing to say. Okay. So I have never met the man. But I feel like I’ve known him all these years. And to know him is to be known by him. At least cable news imparts this notion. Joan Tarshis, in 1969 a nineteen-year-old comedy writer, thought she knew the Bill Cosby she knew on television. He broke character by allegedly plying her with flattery, booze, and drugs before plying her with him. “The next thing I remember was coming to on his couch while being undressed,” Tarshis recalls of a 45-year-old

Ahead of the grand jury in Ferguson announcing whether it will indict a police officer for killing a man in Ferguson, Missouri, Attorney General Eric Holder has released a video announcement telling law enforcement to behave. "The Justice Department encourages law enforcement officials, in every jurisdiction, to work with the communities they serve to minimize needless confrontation," Holder says. "Over the past few months, we’ve seen demonstrations and protests that have sought to bring attention to real and significant underlying issues involving police practices, implicit bias, and pervasive community distrust. And in most cases, these demonstrations have been both meaningful and responsible,

President Barack Obama has signed a secret order allowing the Pentagon to target Taliban fighters in Afghanistan, broadening previous plans that had limited the military to counterterrorism missions against al-Qaida, it was revealed Friday. The president´s decision, made during a White House meeting with national security advisers, also gives the military the green light to conduct air support for Afghan operations when needed. Obama issued the guidelines in recent weeks, as the American combat mission in Afghanistan draws to a close, thousands of troops return home, and the military prepares for narrower counterterrorism and training mission for the next two years.

The Monday deadline for a nuclear deal with Tehran is approaching. Naturally, that means John Kerry is spending the intervening hours begging his Iranian counterpart, Mohammad Javad Zarif, to come to terms. We’ve been skeptical about a deal, and that skepticism has grown with each concession we have made. This week, former CIA director Michael Hayden put his finger on the fundamental weakness of the administration’s approach here. In testimony before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, Hayden said it’s irresponsible to reach a deal when we do not have the intelligence or access to judge how close Iran is to a nuke. In



Kenya bus attack near

Suspected members of the Somali militant group al-Shabab have killed at least 28 people in an attack on a bus in northern Kenya, officials say. The bus was travelling to the capital, Nairobi, when it was stopped in Mandera county, near the Somali border. After taking it off the road, gunmen separated out those they thought were non-Muslim before killing them, officials said. Somalia-based al-Shabab has been mounting attacks in Kenya since 2011. That was the year when Kenya sent troops to Somalia to help fight the Islamist militia. Mandera, a remote area in Kenya´s north east, has been one of the regions affected.

Five prisoners released Thursday from the U.S. Navy prison at Guantanamo Bay, Cuba included hard-core al-Qaeda members who traveled and worked closely with terror leaders Osama bin Laden and Abu Zubaydah. The move is being seen as part of the Obama administration´s effort to shutter the military detention center, a promise the president made during his 2008 campaign but which he has yet to fulfill. Although an administration task force found in 2009 that they no longer posed a great enough threat to keep behind razor wire indefinitely, classified documents demonstrate that only a year earlier they were deemed high-risk

Usually when your team throws a Hail Mary pass, the football simply gets batted to the ground and the game ends. When Sen. Mary Landrieu (D-La.) threw one this past week in an attempt to save her political career, the other team intercepted the ball and ran it back for a touchdown. At issue was a Landrieu-led push for Senate approval of the Keystone XL pipeline, a long-delayed project that has pitted two core Democratic constituencies — the labor movement and environmentalists — against one another.

The U.S. performed a top secret mission in early November to retrieve two prisoners held captive in North Korea. Top spy James Clapper successfully brought Matthew Miller and Kenneth Bae back to the states. However, Miller revealed his real intentions Thursday. “I was trying to stay in the country,” Miller told NKNews.org. “They wanted me to leave. The very first night they said, ‘We want you to leave on the next flight.’ But I refused. I just did not leave.” In the interview, Miller said his trip was not political.

Washington -- It was the summer of 2007 and Senator Edward M. Kennedy, D-Mass., unloaded on his junior colleague, then-Sen. Barack Obama, D-Illinois. "You can´t come in here and undo everything!" Kennedy told Obama, according to Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC. Kennedy was angry, Graham would later recall, because Obama had signed on to be part of a bipartisan coalition of senators pushing a comprehensive immigration package, and yet he kept straying from the group´s agreements. The bipartisan team, led by Kennedy and Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., would consult before voting on amendments, voting against them as a group even when they personally supported
