Cantor blasts Obama over phone
call on immigration reform

The Hill [Washington, DC], by Russell Berman & Justin Sink

Original Article

Posted By:KarenJ1, 4/16/2014 8:35:19 PM

President Obama called House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-Va.) to prod Republicans to bring up immigration reform, but the conversation apparently did not go well. Cantor issued a blistering statement afterward, criticizing Obama for calling him just after delivering what he called “a partisan statement” that indicated “no desire to work together” on immigration, a top priority for Obama that House Republicans have largely ignored. “After five years, President Obama still has not learned how to effectively work with Congress to get things done,” Cantor said in the statement. “You do not attack the very people you hope to engage in

Comments:
This entire thing is frustrating and exhausting. I certainly don´t trust Obama. I don´t know what to believe out of Cantor anymore with his support of the Dreamers.

I do not believe anything Zippy claims to have said or done. He intentionally attempted to make Cantor look bad.

Well by now the Republicans should know that the liberal Democrats are never going to support the effective enforcement of the immigration laws as they know that there are too many prospective new Democrat voters in the illegal alien population group for them to do anything like that.

As long as the laws allow for masses of illegal aliens to be granted amnesty and then eventual US voting rights it will be like that and only get worse, as the vast majority of illegal aliens are poor and generally uneducated low wage earners who the Democrats can exploit by promising them all sorts of new rights and government provided benefits and services in return for votes.

The Michigan soccer referee critically injured this weekend after he was sucker-punched during an adult-league game died Tuesday in an area hospital. John Bieniewicz, 44, was left in critical condition Saturday in Livonia after witnesses say he was punched in the head as he reached down for a red card. Police said Baseel Abdul-Amir Saad punched Bieniewicz after he indicated that the 36-year-old Dearborn resident was going to be ejected. Livonia police and the Wayne County prosecutor´s office have not named the referee, whom Acho identified as Bieniewicz. One witness told MyFoxDetroit.com that Bieniewicz was punched near his throat and fell without raising

   

 

  


 
Progressive Watchdog Media Matters
Employees Finally Get Their Own Union

Progressive watchdog group Media Matters for America lost the fight to keep its workers from unionizing Monday, the Huffington Post reports. Staff had been agitating moving to unionize since March, with Media Matters executives “fighting it every step of the way,” according to a Service Employees International Union statement. They filed a petition to the National Labor Relations board in April after executives rejected an attempt to unionize through a card check — an open method of unionizing that avoids secret-ballot elections. “The actions of Media Matters executives have placed employees in the impossible position of continuing to produce content

Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser to President Barack Obama, has a unique item of herself in her office: a photo of herself with three figurines bowing down in worship in front of it. The photo drew attention after Jarrett´s "Meet the Press" interview Sunday — and Jarrett posted a tweet Tuesday afternoon assuring her supporters the display was simply a novelty item. "Don´t worry friends, it was a gag gift," Jarrett wrote, pivoting to some White House messaging about the economy. "Us strong women don´t need worship," she continued, "just an economy for the 21st century. #WomenSucceed." Business Insider directly

One of the first things you notice when you move to Washington DC from the rest of America is how the specialized vocabulary of the Beltway dominates everyday conversation. Washington is the only place I know of where you can have complete conversations conducted almost wholly in acronyms and seemingly plain terms not used elsewhere: “I’ll be sending out an RFP for the OMB’s reverse markup of the omnibus stopgap DQA appropriation for the EPA’s CAA double topspin rejection of the CR.” (Perhaps there’s a little of this on Wall Street and in Hollywood, but those industries are situated within

HHS inspector general reports
millions of data inconsistencies

Applications for insurance coverage through President Obama´s health care law submitted in the final three months of 2013 contained millions of inconsistencies in which information such as income and immigration status could not be independently verified by the federal government, according to a June report from the inspector general of the Department of Health and Human Services. The inconsistencies may have resulted in individuals receiving an improper amount of subsidies, or subsidies that they shouldn´t have been eligible for in the first place — something that could require them to repay the money in future tax bills.

The Department of Health and Human Services recently recognized the RISE project (Recognize, Intervene, Support, and Empower) in Los Angeles County for its work to fight "anti-gay and anti-transgender bias" in the child welfare system in the county: To address the over-representation of LGBTQ youth in the foster care system, RISE set out to develop and evaluate a multi-pronged approach to helping LGBTQ youth find permanent and supportive families. Early research revealed that many LBGTQ youth in the foster care system question whether their environments are safe spaces. RISE engaged youth to design posters named “Brave Space” and other materials to

Northern Virginia Schools Struggle
Under Influx of Immigrants

A new report by the Washington Post details how Northern Virginia school districts, including those in Fairfax County, are struggling under the weight of an influx of new students seemingly poised to tax both the system and Virginia taxpayers to prop up a system that may be destined for decline. The kindergartners of the Class of 2026, who finished their first year in Fairfax County schools Wednesday, constitute the largest and one of the most ethnically, culturally and socioeconomically diverse groups of students the county has seen, a fact that school system administrators say could pose significant challenges in the decade

Nearly two years after he requested an appointment with a Veterans Affairs hospital, Vietnam veteran Doug Chase finally got approved for a visit to a primary care doctor. Unfortunately, he’d died in August 2012 of a brain tumor. Suzanne Chase, his widow, received a letter dated June 12, 2014 saying he could now call doctors at a Bedford, MA hospital to schedule an appointment. “We are committed to providing primary care in a timely manner and would greatly appreciate a prompt response,” it read at the bottom. “It was 22 months too late, I kind of thought I was in the twilight

LAREDO, Texas—Breitbart Texas caught an attempted illegal entry from Mexico on camera. The attempt occurred in broad daylight in the center of the Laredo, Texas. Two men can be seen crossing the Rio Grande River that separates the U.S. and Mexico on Texas’ southern border. The stretch of the U.S.-Mexico border between Laredo, Texas and Nuevo Laredo, Mexico has been especially neglected by federal and state authorities and has become a hotbed of narco-trafficking activities for Mexican cartels, specifically the Los Zetas. It is important to note that the area where the men crossed is one of the few staffed areas

What was supposed to be a generic left vs. right panel debate during Fox’s America’s Newsroom turned tense for a few moments as anchor Martha MacCallum berated her liberal guest, calling him an “apologist” for the Obama administration and the Internal Revenue Service over its lost emails controversy. Speaking with National Review editor Rich Lowry and Fox’s liberal commentator Bob Beckel, MacCallum lamented how it seems as though government has “lousy” computer systems that don’t work. Noting the recent IRS and Obamacare rollout problems, she said, “We are being told the government can’t handle the technology.” “There is a lot

Hillary Clinton’s artificially inflated poll numbers have made her seem like an especially strong presidential candidate, but the Clinton bubble is quickly coming to an end.(Snip) But Ms. Clinton’s re-entry on the political stage over the last few weeks is turning her back into what she was before her stint as Secretary of State: an intensely polarizing political figure. Politico’s most recent poll, conducted in June amid the initial publicity for her book “Hard Choices,” found that her favorability ratings have already dropped by 20 points since 2012 among Republicans. A recent NBC/Wall Street Journal poll found that her ratings,

CIA Under Fire
for Failure in Iraq

The CIA failed to provide adequate warning of the recent Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant military incursion into Iraq despite having a significant presence of agency officers in the country, according to U.S. officials and security analysts. Critics of the agency said the intelligence failure was made worse by a failure of the Obama administration to recognize the threat posed to the country by the ISIL, which last week renamed itself simply the Islamic State (IS) and declared its captured territory in Syria and Iraq is now a “caliphate.” The so-called caliphate region is under harsh Islamic law and led

Megyn Kelly faced off with former Weather Underground leader Bill Ayers in an explosive interview tonight in which Kelly repeatedly confronted Ayers about bombings and killings that the radical group was reportedly involved in. Kelly asked Ayers how many bombings he was personally responsible for. Ayers declined to answer, but did acknowledge the “terrible risk” they took with some of their more out-there tactics. Kelly grilled him on how the Weather Underground “declared a state of war against the U.S. government” and encouraged violence. Kelly went through a series of instances in which the Weather Underground was tied to bombings and killings,

The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. The proposed project would have extended from Alberta, Canada to Illinois, transporting approximately 400,000 barrels of crude oil per day. Estimated cost is $1.7 billion. But Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and 2014. Democrats are beholden to the radical green movement – the poor and middle class be damned. Now this… Canada pulled the plug on Keystone and will

As thousands of disease-riddled criminals storm across our borders, is it really time to mince words? President Obama appears to have an Agenda for America that stinks worse than a Border Patrol bus depot crammed with urine-drenched illegals. Is the man trying to protect and defend us, or does he want us to kick the bucket, run down the curtain, and join the choir invisible? On January 29, 2014, the Department of Homeland Security advertised for a vendor to escort 65,000 “unaccompanied alien children,” indicating that they not only knew the alien invasion was coming, they planned it.

Today, the Supreme Court ruled in the nationally followed Hobby Lobby case. The for-profit corporations that brought these cases to the Supreme Court—a craft store and a cabinet manufacturer—argued that the corporations’ religious convictions should excuse them from compensating their employees through the comprehensive health insurance required by law. Specifically, these private employers sought to exclude insurance coverage of several forms of birth control because, contrary to medical and scientific evidence, the corporations’ owners believe some birth control causes abortions. The Affordable Care Act already includes special arrangements for houses of worship and religious non-profits, like schools and hospitals. Houses

One week after traveling to Mississippi to do his utmost to help Senator Thad Cochran (R) beat Tea Party rival Chris McDaniel, Senator John McCain (R-AZ) talked about the strengths he saw in Cochran´s approach to campaigning. According to AZ Central, McCain dismissed criticism over the tactics the Republican Establishment used to get black Democrats to cross over and vote for Cochran. Said McCain, "There are some people complaining that African-American voters voted. [But] I thought one of the major priorities of the Republican Party was to get all minority and ethnic voters out to vote for Republicans." He described Cochran´s "get-out-the-vote campaign"

The Israeli Air Force carried out what it called "precision strikes" on 34 "terror targets" in the Gaza Strip overnight, after the discovery of the bodies of three Israeli teenagers who were kidnapped in the West Bank earlier this month. The Israeli Defense Forces said the strikes were in response to rockets being launched earlier into Israel from Gaza. The waves of rockets from Gaza and IDF retaliations have picked up since the teens were kidnapped and the Israeli crackdown began. Hamas has not claimed responsibility for launching the rockets but Israel holds them responsible for everything coming out of Gaza. The Israel Defense

In a hastily scheduled statement this afternoon from the White House Rose Garden, Obama said he would ´greatly prefer´ Congress passing any sort of immigration reform legislation, even if it wasn´t the bill he supports, but he was done sitting around waiting for that to happen. The president said his administration would ´refocus´ its efforts on the border, and he would use his ´existing legal authority´ to do ´what Congress refuses to do´ and fix the broken immigration system.
