President Obama said Wednesday he expects an immigration reform bill will be signed into law by year’s end, and possibly as early as June. “I’m hopeful that this can get done, and I don’t think that it should take many, many months,” Obama said in an interview with Telemundo. “I think this is something we should be able to get done certainly this year and I’d like to see if we could get it done sooner, in the first half of the year if possible.” Telemundo is the second-largest Spanish-language television network in the U.S. Obama also interviewed
Comments: Oh really? The king has spoken. What´s the big hurry?
obama certainly has the time and energy to make sure that the dems continue to buy votes. While all economic indicators point to more trouble at best and disaster at worst but he can´t seem to figure out what to do. They have had four years and they are still blaming Reps or spinning numbers into a false sense of "we are headed in the right direction". When you are 6 trillion in the hole and have the nerve to say "spending is not our problem" are you an idiot or an evil genius?
Obama is bogus on this issue, the "tough" hoops that he says that illegal aliens are going to have to jump through on their way to accelerated US citizenship, and US voting rights, are nothing more then routine factors of the immigration application process that all legal immigrants have always had to endure. You can see that Obama and the liberal Democrats are licking their chops at the prospect of picking up 10 million or so new voters that they can use to send the Republican (Stupid) Party into long-term political oblivion.
New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie is poised to sign a bill that will give illegal immigrants the ability to pay the same lower college tuition rates as state residents. That would make New Jersey the 18th state in the nation to give illegal immigrants the lower tuition benefit, Newsmax reported. The bill that’s headed to Mr. Christie has been altered a bit from the version that was debated by state politicos over the past few weeks. The New York Times reported that a provision that was approved by the legislature to make financial aid available to illegal immigrants was removed. That removal
President Barack Obama, who is departing Friday for a vacation in Hawaii that will reportedly last until Jan. 5, took more annual vacation days on average in his first term than the average private-sector worker gets after 20 years on the job. Obama took an average of 21.5 vacations days per year in his first four years as president. By comparison, private-industry workers in the United States who have at least 20 years on the job get an average of 19 days of paid vacation per year.
Mariah Carey is under fire amid reports that she was paid $1 million last weekend to perform for Angolan President Jose Eduardo Dos Santos, who has been labeled a dictator by human rights groups. Dos Santos is accused of ordering executions of his political opponents and journalists and exploiting the impoverished country´s resources. “Mariah Carey can’t seem to get enough dictator cash, reportedly more than $1 million this time," said the Human Rights Foundation´s Thor Halvorssen, according to Reuters. "It is the sad spectacle of an international artist purchased by a ruthless police state to entertain and whitewash the father-daughter kleptocracy that
Sometimes if an incident related to your particular cause is in the news, you might want to release a statement or make public comment to draw attention to your cause. This backfired on PETA in a major way this past week when, following news of a Pennsylvania teenager who was mauled by a black bear during a deer hunt, they sent out a letter to Camille Bomboy and asked her to stop hunting altogether. The letter, sent out last Friday, asks her to consider violence from the animal’s perspective. I am writing on behalf of PETA and our more than
So, leftist religious broadcaster MSNBC is taking A&E’s side in the Duck war. That’s their right, although, like the network’s unyielding support for Barack Obama, it’s a minority position. But when the Nation’s Richard Kim suggested today that if Phil Robertson and Bobby Jindal tried anal sex, they might like it, and host Chris Hayes giggled and said he wished Kim had gotten to do the GQ interview so he could ask them that question, well, honestly I don’t even know what to say. For an ideology that talks a great deal about keeping everyone out of everyone else’s bedroom,
A federal court on Friday granted almost 200 evangelical ministries relief from the Affordable Care Act’s so-called birth control mandate. The ruling by the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Oklahoma is the latest in a series of legal blows to the healthcare law’s requirement that workers be offered contraception as part of their employers´ insurance coverage. Under the ruling, 187 non-exempt religious groups that offer insurance through GuideStone Financial Resources of the Southern Baptist Convention are now protected from the mandate while their case proceeds. “This is an overwhelming victory for GuideStone and the nearly 200 plaintiffs in this class-action
By extrapolating quotes and just plain old lying, the elite media are using a GQ interview with "Duck Dynasty" patriarch Phil Robertson as an excuse to go on an anti-Christian rampage that they hope will further their longstanding goal of toxifying Biblical beliefs as bigoted and anti-gay. If you read the full GQ interview, though, it is glaringly obvious that Robertson is anti-sin, not anti-gay, and that he believes we should all love one another. To begin with, the Duck Commander did not single out homosexual behavior; he listed over a half-dozen sins, including adultery, greed, bestiality, drunkenness, idolatry, etc.
Is this man simply expressing his beliefs or spewing bigotry?Either way, Phil Robertson, the patriarch in A&E´s "Duck Dynasty," won´t be duck calling on air anytime soon. The network suspended him after slamming gays in a magazine interview. In the January issue of GQ, Robertson said homosexuality is a sin and puts it in the same category as bestiality and promiscuity. "It seems like, to me, a vagina -- as a man -- would be more desirable than a man´s anus. That´s just me. I´m just thinking: There´s more there! She´s got more to offer. I mean, come on, dudes! You know
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid was hospitalized early Friday morning as a “precaution” after feeling ill, a spokesman said, adding that doctors concluded "everything is normal" after testing. “Early this morning, Senator Reid was not feeling well and as a precaution decided to go to the hospital. Tests have been conducted and everything is normal. He is alert, resting and feeling better,” spokesman Adam Jentleson said in a statement. "Doctors have asked that he remain in the hospital for observation so he will not be working today." The Senate is set to finish its business for the year on Friday.
For a few hours, it looked like Americans would quietly accept the suspension of popular “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson for his unfiltered opinions about sin, sex, gays and blacks in a magazine interview. But then, as if on cue, hundreds of thousands of fans of the openly Christian, duck-hunting businessman took to social networks and started their backlash. As of Thursday night, more than 1.1 million people “liked” the “Stand With Phil Robertson” Facebook page, while about the same number had clicked their support for another Facebook page called “Boycott A&E Until Phil Robertson Is Put Back On Duck
The suspension of Phil Robertson from A&E’s Duck Dynasty is outrageous in a nation that values freedom, according to social critic and openly gay, dissident feminist Camille Paglia. “I speak with authority here, because I was openly gay before the ‘Stonewall rebellion,’ when it cost you something to be so. And I personally feel as a libertarian that people have the right to free thought and free speech,” Paglia, a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, said on Laura Ingraham’s radio show Thursday. “In a democratic country, people have the right to be homophobic as well as they have
The Obama administration Thursday night significantly relaxed the rules of the health-care law for millions of consumers whose individual insurance policies have been canceled, saying they could buy bare-bones health plans or entirely avoid the requirement that most Americans have health insurance. The surprise announcement, four days before the Dec. 23 deadline for people to choose coverage that begins on Jan. 1, triggered an immediate backlash from the health insurance industry and raised new fairness questions about a law intended to promote affordable and comprehensive coverage. “This type of last-minute change will cause tremendous instability in the marketplace and lead
Olympic gold medalist Brian Boitano has announced he is gay. Boitano´s personal news comes two days after the figure skater was named to the official United States 2014 Sochi Olympics delegation by President Obama. "While I am proud to play a public role in representing the American Olympic Delegation as a former Olympic athlete, I have always reserved my private life for my family and friends and will continue to do so," Boitano, 50, said in an official statement. (Snip) Boitano joins tennis player Billie Jean King and Olympic ice hockey bronze medalist Caitlin Cahow as the third openly gay athlete
The A&E Network’s suspension of Phil Robertson, star of the most popular reality show in the history of television, for espousing views on homosexuality identical to those found in the New Testament may not be the first PC lynching in the history of our country, but it is certainly now the most prominent. It is also a singular example of how political correctness, via cultural relativism, is used to undermine democracy and freedom of speech and is, at its core, fascistic. Yes, I just used the f-word and quite deliberately. PC and cultural relativism are the godchildren of Martin Heidegger
