President Barack Obama will go for immigration reform and gun control this month, the White House tells the left-leaning Huffington Post. Obama´s actions will reportedly be done "quickly." "An Obama administration official said the president plans to push for immigration reform this January. The official, who spoke about legislative plans only on condition of anonymity, said that coming standoffs over deficit reduction are unlikely to drain momentum from other priorities. The White House plans to push forward quickly, not just on immigration reform but gun control laws as well," reports the Huffington Post.
Comments: The HUNGER for CONTROL and POWER is NEVER SATED once a Godless Humanist Oppressive Tyrant tastes the sweet nectar of denying God Given Freedoms, Liberties and Individual Rights to the masses.
The Republicans will voice loud opposition to both in the beginning but in the end will cave and vote for both just so they won´t be criticized by the msm. I have had enough of the Republican elite always caving! Molon Labe!
I found it interesting that the white house called the huffington post. Who knew that inanimate objects could use the phone? The Republicans do NOT HAVE CONTROL - do you ever read what goes on. The Pubbies can demand, pass, etc., but it ain´t law until it is signed by everyone in the government. Concentrate on encouraging them to hang in there and throw up what roadblocks that they can.
I say "go for it"! I hope he throws everything but the kitchen sink at us. I hope he taxes everyone, runs up the debt and lets Illegals run wild. The more he pushes, the more he´s going to PO voters. When 2014 rolls around, hopefully we can take back the Senate. That will put a halt to Obama´s reign of terror. Generally, he isn´t able to get out his faithful Base during the Mid terms, so we should be able to win! It´s our only hope of putting the breaks on his plans!
So, is it still too early to talk about seceding...? Do we need more time to figure out what zippy´s intentions really are?...Maybe replace the bone...or maybe a few more jerks...Another election?....Yep, that ´s it...that´s the ticket ...I´ve always enjoyed reorganizing the deck chairs on the Titanic.
Interesting...Obama wants to bring in a few more million from south of the border...and they will compete for the thinning dollars with who??? You don´t suppose he is taking the green from the boys in the ´hood´ since he´s already used their votes...they are now surplus and as such expendable... we are already seeing the problems these two cultures are encountering in Los Angeles...Betcha we see some turf problems and soon... Make Chicago look like a picnic area.
Republicans fought a good fight, with the weapons we the voters gave them. There are some good articles tonight how the Dem´s used their best ammo to get another bill through that WILL hurt the economy. Taxes on the rich will be taxes on everybody. As another poster said 2014 Senate races are around the corner. Obama is as high today as he will ever be again in the polls and headed down. If Republicans did not do a strategic retreat and the economy really tanked we would be looking at Speaker Pelosi in two years.
Before boarding AF1 back to Hawaii, Obama sent a threat to the GOP via his gov´t run MSM, that he will not accept a battle over increasing the debt limit.... That congress needs to pay the bills they created !
Now immigration, gun control & unilateral debt clg EO´s all in January? This poser is pushing for a civil war.
I say the 23 states asking, should secede as a group & we can rebuild a Free America...
Killing off 40m Americans is in the business plan from the population czar... We need to secede before we can´t.
Yes, Australia banned all semi-auto rifles and shotguns and they were all turned in with nearly zero fight, chopped up by the government, gone permanently. IIRC, the real guy that the movie Crocodile Dundee was loosely based on was shot and killed while resisting arrest.
So why are you all wasting time here stroking each other? You´d do better in the face of every Congress critter you can find- all day, every day! Unless you´re working to alleviate the problem, you´re part of it. /rant
President Obama has found someone to blame for the Affordable Care Act´s rolling failures besides Republicans. ObamaCare is the government´s fault, not his. On Thursday, Mr. Obama dropped by American University for a heart to heart with Chris Matthews, and the MSNBC host wondered who in the executive branch is responsible for the botched health-care rollout. Mr. Obama listed a few impersonal culprits including "cynicism," "Washington gridlock" and "the management of government," but he then drifted into another classic. "The challenge, I think, that we have going forward is not so much my personal management style or particular issues around White House
Jobs Report: November´s numbers were stronger than expected, a phrase rarely uttered since this president took the economic reins. But while a bigger number is always better, one good month now and then won´t cut it. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy created 203,000 jobs in November, 196,000 of which were in the private sector. Now at 7%, the unemployment rate has fallen to the lowest level in five years. What´s more, unlike in previous months, the rate´s drop came from gains in employment, not from people dropping out of the labor force. The labor force participation rate actually
Executive Orders: A liberal constitutional scholar warns of the concentration of power not only in the hands of one branch of government but in a single man who ignores the Constitution and acts of Congress on a whim. As the story goes, Benjamin Franklin emerged from Independence Hall at the close of the Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia on Sept. 18, 1787, when a woman asked, "Well, Doctor, what have we got, a republic or a monarchy?" Franklin is said to have replied, "A republic, madam — if you can keep it." The Founders designed a system of checks and balances among three
Most presidents have politically troublesome relatives: Jimmy Carter had colorful brother Billy, Bill Clinton had brother Roger, and the George Bushes had son/brother Neil, who was involved in both the savings-and-loan scandal of the 1980s and Asian "sex romps" that emerged in a messy 2003 divorce. Obama has a passel of half-siblings, but his requisite nettlesome relative may turn out to be an uncle, Onyango (Omar) Obama. In August 2011, Uncle Omar was pulled over in Framingham, Mass., for driving under the influence. His arrest revealed both several outstanding orders for his deportation and his relationship to the
RUSH: Here is Wolf Blitzer. Last night on The Situation Room, Wolf Blitzer had in Fareed Zakaria GPS. I guess Fareed had his location device with him. He calls himself "Fareed Zakaria GPS." When you´re with him, I guess, you always know where you are. And they´re talking about the impact of the passing of Nelson Mandela, and this is classic. Listen to Wolf here... BLITZER: Is it overly naive to hope and pray that maybe the death of Nelson Mandela will inspire some of those world leaders out there right now to do the right thing, to recognize that bloodshed and
WASHINGTON — Without Nelson Mandela, there might never have been a President Obama. That is the strong impression conveyed from Mr. Obama, whose political and personal bonds to Mr. Mandela, the former South African president, transcended their single face-to-face meeting, which took place at a hotel here in 2005. It was the fight for racial justice in South Africa by Mr. Mandela that first inspired a young Barack Obama to public service, the American president recalled on Thursday evening after hearing that Mr. Mandela, the 95-year-old world icon, had died. Mr. Obama delivered his first public speech, in 1979, at
RUSH: We mentioned earlier that Obama didn´t know that Obama was living with his uncle, who happened to be an illegal alien at the time. Here´s Jay Carney. This is yesterday afternoon in Washington the White House at the daily briefing. Ed Henry, the Fox News White House correspondent, said, "The White House said that in 2011, that there was no record of Obama and his uncle, Omar Obama, ever meeting. Now the Boston Globe is being told by the White House -- and I assume you can elaborate here, Jay -- that, in fact, they not only met, but
More young men in California rise in pitch at the end of their sentences when talking, new research shows. This process is known as "uptalk" or "valleygirl speak" and has in the past been associated with young females, typically from California or Australia.But now a team says that this way of speaking is becoming more frequent among men.The findings were presented at the Meeting of the Acoustical Society of America in California. "We found use of uptalk in all of our speakers, despite their diverse backgrounds in socioeconomic status, ethnicity, bilingualism and gender," said Amanda Ritchart, a linguist at the University of
The question all week long was this: Who are you going to believe, an illegal alien or the president of the United States of America? Obviously, if it’s a president who once went by an alias, Barry Soetoro, you go with Uncle Omar, 100 percent, no questions asked. And so it was that the White House finally admitted to another, uh, misstatement — despite previous denials, Barack/Barry did sleep on his beloved Uncle Omar’s couch in Cambridge when he first moved here to attend Harvard Law School (speaking of which, we’re still waiting to see the president’s grades and his LSAT scores). But the
How do you get your arms around the catastrophe known as Obamacare? Is it even possible? At this point, I’m not sure it is. The list of individual disasters which threaten to ruin one-sixth of the U.S. economy and what has been, up until now, the best healthcare system in the world is exhaustive, and exhausting. The examples I will identify here barely scratch the surface. First but by no means foremost, we have the supposedly new and improved HealthCare.gov. Except it’s not, even the visible part. Stories still abound of people still failing to get in or to get through the enrollment
DAVID CORN: I saw a president who remains frustrated with the political-media culture that he has to work within, and that he´s looking to rally people, students here, and supporters, and people within the media. CHRIS MATTHEWS: But David Corn, you skeptic. He came to us today. He came amongst us. CORN: He´s trying to rally people behind this vision that he´s been promoting for a couple years. FINEMAN: By the way, he did it the end here, today, Chris, not by defending specifics, but by explaining why he´s in the game to begin with. And I don´t know about you, he´s
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has announced a new five-year strategic plan to improve safety for elderly drivers and passengers. Although they are statistically among the safest on the road, the number of older drivers is increasing dramatically — and with it, that group´s numbers of injuries and deaths. Since 2003, the population of older adults, defined as age 65 and older, has increased by 20% and the number of licensed older drivers increased by 21% to 35 million in 2012, according to NHTSA. Last year, NHTSA reported that 5,560 people older than 65 died and 214,000 were injured
The most curious thing of all about the November jobs report released on Friday was the huge drop in the unemployment rate — and the fact that the Labor Department chose not to disclose that the data going into that figure are under investigation for falsification. On Nov. 19, I broke the news in my column that the Census Bureau, which collects data that goes into the jobless rate on behalf of Labor, had caught one of its enumerators fabricating interviews in 2010. The culprit said back then (and to me during an interview) that he was told to do so by
