Obama to ´Quickly´ Go
for Immigration
Reform and Gun Control

Weekly Standard, by Daniel Halper

Original Article

Posted By:Desert Fox, 1/2/2013 7:23:24 PM

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.

Obama needs to be impeached for working for someone other than the American people.

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!

FTA: "The outlet claims that it is "unclear what type of immigration policies the White House plans to push in January."

No details on what sort of gun control legislation the White House will seek were offered in the article."

Duh. I can tell you exactly what they´ll attempt: citizenship for all illegal aliens and complete gun confiscation and outlawing of all gun ownership.

Of course neither of those will succeed so they´ll dial it back and Republicans will cave and call it compromise and a good deal.

Don´t they understand this is how revolutions are started?

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.

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...

Russia Tests Obama´s Ability
To Stop Its Advances
Associated Press, by Julie Pace    Original Article

Washington -- With the White House asserting that Russia is stoking instability in eastern Ukraine, President Barack Obama is once again faced with the complicated reality of following through on his tough warnings against overseas provocations. Obama has vowed repeatedly to enact biting sanctions against Russia´s vital economic sectors if the Kremlin tries to replicate its actions in Crimea, the peninsula it annexed from Ukraine, elsewhere in the former Soviet republic. Despite those warnings, Russian President Vladimir Putin appears to be testing Obama´s limits, instigating protests in eastern Ukraine, the White House says, and massing tens of thousands of troops on

How Being a Doctor Became the
Most Miserable Profession

By the end of this year, it’s estimated that 300 physicians will commit suicide. While depression amongst physicians is not new—a few years back, it was named the second-most suicidal occupation—the level of sheer unhappiness amongst physicians is on the rise. Simply put, being a doctor has become a miserable and humiliating undertaking. Indeed, many doctors feel that America has declared war on physicians—and both physicians and patients are the losers. Not surprisingly, many doctors want out. Medical students opt for high-paying specialties so they can retire as quickly as possible. Physician MBA programs—that promise doctors a way into management—are flourishing. The

Federal officials appear to be waiting out Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy and his supporters. Two days after a dispute over grazing rights, cattle and $1 million in fees and fines threatened to spin into a Wild West shootout, officials with the Bureau of Land Management promised they weren’t finished with Bundy. “The BLM will continue to work to resolve the matter administratively and judicially,” BLM Director Neil Kornze said in a statement that followed the Bureau’s decision to release nearly 400 head of Bundy’s cattle that had been seized as part of a fight over grazing fees. Spokesman Craig Leff declined to be

Land Management: A Chinese solar farm that fries birds is OK, as is redrawing tortoise habitat boundaries to benefit political donors. But an American rancher grazing his cattle brings feds with sniper rifles. It appears Nevada rancher Cliven Bundy has, at least temporarily, wonhis "range war" with the paramilitary wing of the Bureau of Land Management. Fearing another Waco, BLM has announced it will no longer enforce a court order and stop stealing Bundy´s cows, called "trespass cattle" by the feds, accused of grazing free on part of the 84% of Nevada that is federal property.

Since taking office in 2009, President Barack Obama has formally proposed a total of 442 tax increases, according to an Americans for Tax Reform analysis of Obama administration budgets for fiscal years 2010 through 2015. The 442 total proposed tax increases does not include the 20 tax increases Obama signed into law as part of Obamacare. "History tells us what Obama was able to do. This list reminds us of what Obama wanted to do," said Grover Norquist, president of Americans for Tax Reform.

It increasingly looks as if the Republicans will regain control of Congress this fall, with the GOP narrowly winning back a majority in the Senate and the House GOP either retaining or slightly building on its majority. But will the two top Republican leaders – House Speaker John Boehner and Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell -- be around to enjoy the spoils of victory? Both Boehner of Ohio and McConnell of Kentucky are crafty and highly resilient veterans who would be difficult for their opponents to bring down even under the best of circumstances. Yet McConnell is facing arguably one

Russia’s military carried out a flight test of a new multi-warhead intercontinental ballistic missile on Monday amid growing tensions with the United States over the crisis in Ukraine. The SS-27 Mod 2 road-mobile ICBM was launched around 2:40 a.m. EST from Russia’s Plesetsk launch facility, located about 500 miles north of Moscow. “The main purpose of the launch is to validate the reliability of a batch of this class of missiles made at the Votkinsk Plant,” Defense Ministry spokesman Igor Yegorov told state-run Interfax-AVN.

Climate change experts will today set out new plans for tackling global warming in the event that countries cannot reduce their carbon emissions in time. Dubbed ‘Plan B’ the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has looked at the possibility of sucking carbon dioxide out of the air and reflecting sunlight into space. The document is important because it will be used as scientific guidance for governments as they negotiate a new global climate pact, set to be adopted in 2015 However some environmental activists watching the talks in Berlin believe geoengineering should not be attempted.

A rapid shift to wind and solar power is needed if the world is to avoid catastrophic global warming, the United Nations warns in a crucial report today. Emissions of greenhouse gases need to be cut by up to 70 per cent before 2050 to control climate change, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says. ‘Large-scale changes in energy systems’ are required, with coal power stations to be switched off and replaced by wind and solar. And the transformation needs to be made in the next 15 years or controlling climate change will become increasingly harder and more expensive. The report was published

Although the Civil Rights Act, the landmark legislation which just reached its 50th anniversary, made great strides in desegregating the economy, economic discrimination is still widespread, and anti-discrimination legislation alone can never rectify the economic damage inflicted upon blacks by slavery and our Jim Crow apartheid regime. The Civil Rights Act was a mild reform, all things considered, but one conservatives fought with vigor and one many conservatives are still bitter about to this day. When the Civil Rights Act passed in 1964, the primary purpose was to root out discrimination in public accommodations (like hotels and movie theaters)

LAS VEGAS — The Nevada Republican Party stripped opposition to abortion and gay marriage from its platform Saturday as state convention delegates instead focused on judging fellow Republicans on their worthiness to serve in office and adherence to GOP values. The platform, with few changes, was adopted overwhelmingly as the Las Vegas convention stretched late into the evening. The vote mirrors that of the Clark County GOP, which voted earlier to remove platform language defining marriage as between a man and a woman and statements opposing abortion. Many Republicans are re-evaluating their strong stances on conservative social issues as public

Surveillance footage shows eight women piling into a Sunglass Hut and crowding around display cases. Shielding workers from what they´re doing, they quickly stuff dozens of fashion specs into their bags. A store clerk pleads with them to stop, before running out of the shot to get help and dial 911.
