Obama vows to act on immigration,
with or without Congress, at
July 4th citizenship ceremony

Fox News & Associated Press, by Staff

Original Article

Posted By:LittleHoodedMonk, 7/4/2014 11:50:46 PM

President Obama renewed his call for immigration legislation at an Independence Day citizenship ceremony for service members, but once again signaled he would take action on his own if Congress doesn´t pass a bill. "I´m going to keep doing everything I can do to keep making our immigration system smarter and more efficient," Obama said. The president spoke at a White House naturalization ceremony on Friday for members of the U.S. military and their spouses. He touched on the hot-button immigration debate after, days earlier, vowing to proceed with executive actions in the absence of congressional legislation.

Comments:
This sounds like a direct threat at the legislative branch. Which politician will take this terrorist sympathizer to federal court...now. 0bama is outright pushing our form of government to the point of no return?

Democrats will be Democrats. However, this issue is a "third rail". If the Pubs fold, they will be done. If they stand firm, they will win.

I am not optimistic that they will stand up for Main Street America. I can only hope they will prove me wrong.

I wish #1 was correct, but sadly people aren´t willing to fight for what is right any more. Heck, nobody even understands what is right any more.

Navy SEAL tries to secure spot
on Northwestern football team

When you size up Tom Hruby’s chances of securing a spot on the Northwestern football team, it would be fair to say the odds are stacked against him. He’s a junior trying to walk on as a defensive end — meaning he is competing against scholarship athletes aggressively pursued by the university. He’s 32, has a wife, three kids and a full-time job. Overwhelming odds? That’s the perfect scenario for Hruby because that’s how he makes his living. Hruby is an active Navy SEAL. “I don’t feel like where I’m at today is some outstanding or amazing thing,” Hruby told the Sun-Times. “It’s just more of a challenging route . . . the way I kind of

Islamabad - Pakistan´s military officials on Saturday told the country´s top political leaders that the " terrorists are on the run and their command and control system had been crippled" as a result of the major military offensive in North Waziristan tribal region.

Cairo - An Egyptian court ruled on Saturday to dissolve the Freedom and Justice Party (FJP), the Muslim Brotherhood´s political wing, and to liquidate all its assets, according to the state-run Ahram online. The committee of the political parties´ affairs, responsible for granting licenses to newly-formed parties in Egypt, had filed an official request to dissolve the party which was established after the January 25 uprising which toppled president Hosni Mubarak in 2011. The Supreme Administrative Court´s decision which dissolved the party was based on the investigations carried out by the State Security Prosecution which proved violations

Kennett Square, Pa. - The cheerful sign outside Jane Cornell’s summer school classroom in Pennsylvania’s wealthiest county says “Welcome” and “Bienvenidos” in polished handwriting. (Snip) For the first time ever, U.S. public schools are projected this fall to have more minority students than non-Hispanic whites enrolled, a shift largely fueled by growth in the number of Hispanic children. Non-Hispanic white students are still expected to be the largest racial group in the public schools this year at 49.8 percent. But the National Center for Education Statistics says minority students, when added together, will now make up the

In January, Mirza Ismail married his wife, Nofa Kamal, in Sinjar, Iraq, near the mountainous region where today thousands of Yezidi Iraqis are stranded. After three months in Sinjar, Ismail, the chairman of the Yezidi Human Rights Organization, left for his home in Brampton, Canada, before Islamic militants escalated their campaign to wipe out non-Muslims. (Snip) Now, she is one of some 40,000 Yezidis, a religious minority group, stranded on Mount Sinjar after fleeing militants from the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria, who threaten them with two choices. “They either convert to Islam or die,” Ismail told The Daily Signal,

McCain Says Limited U.S. Strikes

Washington - President Obama’s authorization of limited military operations against militants in Iraq is not enough to counter a growing threat to the United States from “the richest, most powerful terrorist organization in history,” Senator John McCain, Republican of Arizona, said on Saturday. Speaking by telephone from Vietnam, where he was part of a bipartisan congressional delegation visiting Asia, Mr. McCain said in an interview that Mr. Obama was showing a “fundamental misunderstanding of the threat” presented by the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria, or ISIS, that is “deeply disturbing.”

Washington - Laying the groundwork for an extended airstrike campaign against Sunni militants in Iraq, President Obama said Saturday that the strikes that began the day before could continue for months as the Iraqis build a new government. “I don’t think we’re going to solve this problem in weeks,” Mr. Obama told reporters before leaving for a two-week vacation on Martha’s Vineyard. “This is going to be a long-term project.” The president repeated his insistence that the United States would not send ground combat troops back to Iraq. But he pledged that the United States and other countries would stand

VW recalls 189,000 SUVs in
North America for potential stalling
Reuters, by Ben Klayman    Original Article
Posted By: LittleHoodedMonk- 8/9/2014 12:37:28 PM     Post Reply
Detroit - Volkswagen AG said on Saturday it is recalling 189,490 Tiguan small sport utility vehicles in North America for potential stalling issues. The German automaker said gas bubbles may form in the fuel system in the affected vehicles from model years 2009 through 2014 when winterized fuel with high vapor pressures is used in warmer areas or during months with higher temperatures. That could lead to reduced fuel pump performance and pressure, potentially resulting in vehicle stalling and could lead to an accident. VW said no accident or injuries related to the issue have been reported. Dealers will install revised electronic control

An appeals court denied Donald Sterling´s petition late Friday to stay last month´s probate court ruling against him, the latest round of legal wrangling over the proposed $2-billion sale of the Clippers to Steve Ballmer. The ruling capped a confused and hectic 24 hours that left all parties back where they started. Sterling´s attorneys face a Wednesday deadline to file their objections to the probate court´s ruling and presumably take the case to the appeals court again. (Snip) The order would allow the sale of the franchise to proceed, regardless of an appeal by Donald Sterling. After Levanas signed the final statement of decision in the

Sacramento - Gov. Jerry Brown´s decision to deny freedom to a Manson family cult member who passed muster with a state parole board follows a familiar path. The governor on Friday reversed a parole board´s March decision that there would be no danger to the public in releasing Bruce Davis, convicted of two murders as well as conspiracy to commit murder. He was not directly involved in the Tate-LaBianca slayings that terrified Los Angeles residents in 1969. Brown, in his decision, noted the barbaric nature of the murders Davis took part in.

For me, watching the Food Network was always an easy escape from the stresses of daily life. There was just something calming about watching chefs in action, and this network had perfected Zen cooking. They’d often use a natural-light filter that made food appear delectable, as if the chefs were blissfully cooking their culinary delights in the sunlit designer kitchen of a tastefully decorated, impeccable home somewhere in the Hamptons. (Well, with Ina Garten, that actually is the case.) I’ve never been anywhere near a sunlit designer kitchen in the Hamptons, but I still found it all oddly soothing. I’d

Bill and Hillary Clinton are making the most of their downtime in the Hamptons. The former U.S. President and his ex-Secretary of State wife were pictured this morning enjoying a stroll on the beach in Amagansett, where they are paying $100,000 to rent an $18million five-bedroom property for three weeks. The couple, who were accompanied by their dogs as well as a Secret Service agent, were dressed in very casual clothes, with President Clinton decked out in black SoulCycle shorts and green sneakers and his wife in a bright blue muumuu and slippers.

President Obama, who ran for office on a platform of ending U.S. military hostilities in Iraq, said Thursday night that he had authorized ´targeted airstrikes if necessary´ in an effort to protect the delivery of humanitarian aid to threatened Iraqis, and to ensure the safety of US personnel delivering the assistance. ´We do whatever is necessary to protect our people. We support our allies when they´re in danger,´ Obama said in an 8-minute speech delivered from the White House´s State Dining Room But American combat troops will not be returning to fight in Iraq, he insisted, and the U.S. won´t

Speaking at the U.S.-Africa Summit earlier this week, Secretary of State John Kerry had a bit of astonishing advice for African leaders. While noting that Africa faces a starvation problem, he also admonished its leaders not to create more farms. The reason? Adding more farms would contribute to “global warming.” Yeah, he really said that: “Certain agricultural processes can actually release carbon pollution and actually contribute to the problem in the first place. It’s a twisted circle. Always complicated. But we also know that there are certain ways to change that. For example, rather than convert natural areas to new farmland, a process

Democratic Texas gubernatorial candidate Wendy Davis on Thursday questioned the deployment of 1,000 National Guard troops on the border with Mexico to curtail illegal immigration and she promised, if elected, that she will study withdrawing them. The troop contingent was promised a month ago by current Republican Gov. Rick Perry, and it is expected that in the coming days they will begin to be deployed along the Texas-Mexico border, which stretches some 2,000 kilometers (about 1,240 miles). "The action I am ordering today will tackle this crisis head-on by multiplying our efforts to combat the cartel activity, human traffickers and individual criminals

Peace has to start with Israeli and Palestinians leaders, namely Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas, US President Barack Obama told the New York Times´ Foreign Affairs columnist Thomas Friedman. [Snip] Obama worried that Netanyahu´s high approval ratings--which have jumped in recent weeks in the wake of Israel´s month-long operation in Gaza--could prevent him from making the difficult concessions needed to reach a long-term deal: "If he doesn’t feel some internal pressure, then it’s hard to see him being able to make some very difficult compromises," like the issue of settlements, the president said.

President Barack Obama will embark on a previously planned two-week vacation to Martha´s Vineyard tomorrow regardless of the violence in Iraq and Gaza. Even as the first military airstrikes he authorized in northern Iraq were carried out Friday, Obama did not cancel the trip.

Russo also helped start the Our Country Deserves Better PAC, aka the Tea Party Express.

PRESIDENT OBAMA was right to order military action to prevent a potential genocide in northern Iraq and to stop forces of the al-Qaeda-derived Islamic State from advancing on Baghdad or the Kurdish capital of Irbil. However, the steps the president authorized on Thursday amount to more of his administration’s half-measures, narrowly tailored to this week’s emergency and unconnected to any coherent strategy to address the conflagration spreading across the Middle East. While U.S. airstrikes and drops of supplies may prevent the terrorist forces from massacring the Yazidi sect or toppling the pro-Western regime in Kurdistan, Mr. Obama lacks a plausible

An elementary school in the outer suburbs of Atlanta has outlawed birthday cupcakes, cookies and, in fact, all food from birthday parties over fears that some kids with food allergies could feel sad and left out. Officials at Brooks Elementary School in Newnan, Ga. announced the draconian new policy for the upcoming school year via a letter to parents, reports The Newnan Times-Herald. “When parents have brought in goodies for birthdays, oftentimes these children are not included in the snack because of dietary restrictions and have felt left out,” Julie Raschen, principal of Brooks Elementary, said, according to the Times-Herald.
