Sen. Richard Blumenthal (D-Conn.) said Tuesday that although President Barack Obama “can’t make new laws himself” under the U.S. Constitution’s separation of powers, the president “can give people who are undocumented here the ability to stay.” “Article One of the Constitution says that ‘Congress shall have power…to establish [a] uniform Rule of Naturalization.’ Given that, does President Obama have any unilateral power to legalize illegal aliens?” CNSNews asked Blumenthal. “The President’s powers are limited to what the statute permits him to do,” he replied. “There are various ways that he can give people who are undocumented here the ability to

The Loophole Is Obama

It’s been reported everywhere — The New York Times, The Washington Post, Fox News — that the William Wilberforce Sex Trafficking Act requires that any non-Mexican children who show up on our border be admitted and given a hearing. (New York Times, July 7, 2014: “Immigrant Surge Rooted in Law to Curb Child Trafficking.”) The problem, we’ve been told, is that a loophole in the sex trafficking law mandates these hearings — or “removal proceedings.” But there is no such loophole.

As soon as they return from their five-week recess, the Senate will get to work, even on weekends, Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) announced Thursday morning. Reid said September could be a productive month, unless Republicans "keep up their sue-and-impeach show." The Senate, meanwhile, "will stay right here working until they (Republicans) finally get serious about giving the American people a fair shot." Reid announced that "every day between Sept. 8 and Sept. 30 is fair game. Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays -- we need to be here. I repeat for the third time here this morning, there is so much to

Texas Gov. Rick Perry will be politicking at the state fairgrounds, a backyard barbecue, an ice cream social, a winery, a grocery store, a business association office and other classic Iowa summer political venues during a four-day swing here. Perry is one of six Republicans pondering a 2016 White House bid who will be in the presidential stomping grounds of Iowa next week. He´s here Aug. 9 through Tuesday, Aug. 12.

A man who says he’s a lifelong Republican in Democratic U.S. Sen. Mark Begich’s most recent campaign commercial is currently registered as undeclared with no party affiliation, according to state voting records. The man in the ad, Skip Nelson, also says he voted for Republican Sen. Lisa Murkowski. But state records show Nelson did not vote in 2010, when Murkowski was most recently re-elected. Asked if he voted in 2010, Nelson said: “Frankly, I don’t remember.” “I remember going to several fundraisers for her. I thought I did vote for her,” he said in a phone interview Wednesday. “But I know I

Still struggling to secure the votes to pass their border funding bill, House GOP leaders are discussing a way to add a provision that would bar the President from allowing any more deferments for children of undocumented workers in the U.S. now, according to a senior House GOP aide. The change to the 2012 Obama administration policy known as "DACA" has been pushed by conservative Sen. Ted Cruz, and a group of House Republicans has also pressed House leaders to add it to their $659 million border measure. Leaders are working out the mechanics for how the change would be

Obamacare’s ‘Administrative Fix’

When it seems like the Obama administration is getting sued left and right for its implementation of the Affordable Care Act, West Virginia’s attorney general is now suing the administration for one of its last-minute changes to the law. Republican Attorney General Patrick Morrisey filed a complaint Tuesday against the Obama administration for its so-called “administrative fix” issued last November, which punted the responsibility for millions of cancelled health insurance plans to states and private insurance companies. President Barack Obama’s repeated promise that anyone who liked their health care plan could keep it became Politifact’s “lie of the year” when

“No” on Boehner SuperTrap Bill

As predicted, the House leadership has sprung its “supertrap” on conservative dissenters, luring them to vote for a flawed border bill with the promise of a second vote on a law purporting to prevent President Obama from expanding his de facto “deferred action” (DACA) amnesty of young illegal immigrants (the so-called “DREAMers”). The main bill is itself still deeply flawed: 1) It opens up the possibility ( embraced yesterday by Harry Reid) that the Senate could seek a conference with the House in which a much broader, “Gang of 8? style amnesty (plus immigration expansion) is on the table. Some have

Stories of shakedowns, brutality, kidnapping, and theft have dogged a group of the city´s Narcotics Field Unit officers for nearly a decade. But despite multiple investigations, cases against them never stuck. Federal prosecutors set out to change that Wednesday, laying out a sprawling racketeering case against six of the unit´s former members. The charges paint them as rogue cops running roughshod over the rights of their targets, confident that few would believe anyone who dared complain. (Snip) Between February 2006 and November 2012, it states, they stole more than $500,000 in cash, drugs, and personal property - all while using

CHARLOTTE, N.C.— A Liberian health official says the Ebola outbreak is now above the control of its government. “Our government has declared this now as a humanitarian crisis that is above the control of the national government,” Tolbert Nyenswah, Liberia’s assistant minister of health, told CBS News. More than 700 people have died in four western African nations during the largest Ebola outbreak ever, with over 320 known cases in Liberia alone. One American died while contracting the virus in Liberia. Two other American medical missionary workers also contracted Ebola. “This virus, if it is not taken care of, will

Weekly Standard editor Bill Kristol has advised House Republicans on Thursday morning that should vote against House Speaker John Boehner’s border crisis bill. “The House Republican leadership is having trouble getting 218 votes for its immigration bill,” Kristol wrote Thursday morning. ”The policy objections to the bill seem convincing to me—among them that it seems to appropriate more money, on a pro-rated monthly basis, than the president´s proposal; that it might well make it harder, not easier, to send some or all of the illegal migrants back; that it changes the asylum laws in ways that might well backfire; and

For over 2,000 years, Christians and Muslims lived in peace in Mosul, Iraq, the country´s second largest city. That all changed on June 10, 2014 when the Islamic State, formerly known as ISIS, invaded the city and evicted its Christian population. With the Christians gone, ISIS has begun to destroy or occupy every Christian landmark in the city. The Assyrian International News Agency released a full list of the 45 institutions the Islamic State destroyed or occupied. Here are a few examples: Syrian Catholic Diocese Church of Our Lady of the Annunciation Archbishop’s Palace Chapel Syrian Orthodox Archdiocese Church of

Penelope Cruz is worried her recent comments on the Israeli/Hamas conflict might be "misunderstood." So the Oscar winner issued an updated statement, according to Deadline.com, further explaining why she thought the Israeli government was committing "genocide" against the Palestinians. The actress admits she isn´t an expert on Middle Eastern affairs. I don’t want to be misunderstood on this important subject,” she said. “I’m not an expert on the situation and I’m aware of the complexity of it. My only wish and intention in signing that group letter is the hope that there will be peace in both Israel and Gaza.

At 10:02 on Friday evening, July 25, I received the following personal message from the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee: “THE IMPEACHMENT OF PRESIDENT OBAMA IS NOW A REAL POSSIBILITY.” The capital letters were in red. This was a blast email, of course, sent to everyone on the Democratic Party’s fundraising list, and also to political journalists. It referred to some very calculated remarks that White House communications director Dan Pfeiffer had made earlier that day about impeachment: “I think Speaker Boehner, by going

Those who get their Hamas news from Nancy Pelosi, Prime Minister Recep Erdogan (our “NATO ally” Turkey), or the many Muslim Brotherhood friends of the Obama administration and its State Department may think of this ruthless jihadist enterprise as a “humanitarian” or “political” organization. But if you want to know the real Hamas – and don’t have time to read the Hamas charter, which explains it will be satisfied with nothing less than the destruction of Israel – you would do well to listen to an important interview Mark Levin conducted last night. Mark’s guest was Mosab Hassan Yousef, a Hamas

CAIRO - Islamic hard-line militias are claiming to have taken control of Libya´s second largest city, Benghazi, after defeating army units, taking over military barracks and seizing tanks, rockets and hundreds of boxes of ammunition. A commander of one of the militias in the Shura Council of Benghazi Revolutionaries umbrella group told The Associated Press on Thursday, "We are the only force on the ground in Benghazi." He spoke on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to talk to the press. In a video put out by the umbrella group, Mohammed al-Zahawi, the head of the Ansar al-Shariah

Hypocrisy, deception and double-talk have never been seen as disqualification for membership in the Obamacare sales force. In fact, they´re standard tools of the trade. The president himself has employed them all continually and shamelessly. It is, after all, racist to refuse Barack Obama a pass when he blatantly contradicts himself. We all get that. But what´s the mainstream media´s excuse for ignoring the colossal about face of one Jonathan Gruber on the subject of the availability of individual subsidies under the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act? Gruber has neither the pigmentation nor the office to qualify him for the get

The language of the legislation that House GOP leadership will offer a vote on to win over conservatives on a border crisis bill contains significant differences from language Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) introduced a couple weeks ago. The original Cruz-Blackburn legislation prohibited the government from spending funds on issuing any new applications under the Deferred Action for Childhood Releases (DACA) program, as well as issuing any work permits to individuals in the country illegally. The new legislation prohibits the government from issuing “guidance, memorandums, regulations, policies, or other similar instruments” that would expand the scope

Part of the way through a live interview, Israeli Ambassador to the United States Ron Dermer asked NBC’s Chuck Todd if the network would correct a false accusation made by Gaza-based reporter and Hamas sympathizer, Ayman Mohyeldin. Mohyeldin claimed on Twitter and in a report for NBC News that an Israeli drone had attacked a UN facility, killing over a dozen civilians. The claim led to widespread condemnation of Israel. Yet an investigation proved that the cause of the explosion was a rocket from Islamic Jihad that fell short of its target in Israel, landing in Gaza. After Dermer asked Todd

If the House’s supplemental border bill were to make it to President Obama’s desk, Obama senior advisors would urge him to veto it. In a statement of administration policy, the Office of Management and Budget said it “strongly opposes House passage of H.R. 5230,” charging that the legislation would make the border crisis worse. “Republicans have had more than a year to comprehensively fix the nation´s broken immigration system, but instead of working toward a real, lasting solution, Republicans released patchwork legislation that will only put more arbitrary and unrealistic demands on an already broken system,” the statement read. The administration argues that

BEIJING - China’s newest celebrity is a large inflatable toad floating in the middle of a Beijing pond, but mentions of the giant frog have disappeared from some of China´s news and social media sites after some netizens pointed out similarities to Jiang Zemin, China´s retired leader.
