AFL-CIO urges Obama to circumvent
Congress on immigration

Washington Examiner (DC), by Sean Higgins

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 7/9/2014 1:28:00 PM

Calling them "aspiring American workers," AFL-CIO President Richard Trumka launched a petition Wednesday calling on President Obama to bypass Congress on the current immigration surge and to instead use his executive authority to aid the people flooding the southwestern U.S. border. "Families are being separated because Congress has failed to act on a commonsense immigration process. The crisis on our worksites and in our communities can´t wait. That´s why I´m calling on President Obama to extend administrative relief to Americans in waiting," Trumka said. Obama has said in the past that he is obliged to follow the law and order

Trumpka you´re an idiot. Try some TEA instead of the drugged kool-aid and quit being such a suck up butt kisser.

This borders on stirring up sedition against the laws that govern this country.

Trumpka´s clearly lining his pockets on this. Maybe the Chamber of Commerce paid him off like they do Schumer´s Republicans.

Heads up, union members. You´re paying dues to be protected and your leadership is playing games that will lose you jobs and security.

Trumpka, it is not legal to circumvent Congress, to force people to join a union, pay union dues, steal union dues for private purposes -- this being just a short list of things you need to know.

Vice President Biden touched on a number of Democratic campaign themes during a speech in Iowa on Wednesday to help kick off a nationwide tour for a group of Catholic nuns traveling the country to register voters. Though his trip to the first-in-the-nation presidential nominating state stoked speculation about his own bid, Biden said he was there for the nuns. "I was asked by the press why am I going out with Nuns on the Bus. I said because they are nuns. It is a simple proposition. You are looking at a kid that had 12 years of Catholic education. I

President Obama and Vice President Biden will debut a new campaign urging men to get more involved in preventing sexual assault on college campuses Friday at the White House. The campaign, dubbed “It´s On Us,” is designed around “the belief that it’s on all of us to be part of the solution in stopping sexual assault,” according to a White House official. “The president and vice president strongly believe that everyone has the right to live free from the threat of sexual assault, and have long been deeply committed to rooting out this violence wherever it exists,” the official said.

For the first time in his presidency, more Americans disapprove of President Obama’s handling of terrorism than approve of it, as discontent about his management of foreign affairs and the fight against Sunni militants in Iraq and Syria weighs on an anxious and conflicted public, according to the latest New York Times/CBS News Poll. As Mr. Obama broadens the military offensive against Islamic extremists, the survey finds broad support for United States airstrikes in Iraq and Syria, but it also demonstrates how torn Americans are about wading back into battle in the Middle East. A majority is opposed to committing

Another new data point that’s turning Eeyore frowns upside down, placing a juicy cherry atop Wednesday’s happy (and sorely needed) polling sundae. Time will tell whether this apparent momentum is the beginning of a trend or just a flash in the pan — but we’re rolling with it, baby. A shot in the arm from the Badger State, where Scott Walker was narrowly trailing his Democratic challenger among likely voters in this polling series last month.

Kansas “Independent” Comes Out
of the Closet as a Democrat
Power Line, by John Hinderaker    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/17/2014 9:06:51 PM     Post Reply
You are probably generally aware of the situation in Kansas, where long-time (and not very inspiring) Senator Pat Roberts survived a primary challenge by insurgent Milton Wolf, but was badly weakened for the general election. The Democrats shrewdly talked their endorsed candidate out of the race, and instead are coalescing behind “independent” candidate Greg Orman. Kansas voters surely would not elect Orman if they knew that doing so would keep Harry Reid in place as Majority Leader, but Orman’s “independent” stance is confusing quite a few Kansans. It shouldn’t. On Monday, Orman came out of the closet by endorsing the

The U.S. Air Force announced a significant change to its policy for reciting oaths Wednesday. Starting now, members and officers can choose to omit the words “so help me God” when delivering enlistment and officer appointment oaths. In a press release, the Air Force wrote: In response to concerns raised by Airmen, the Department of the Air Force requested an opinion from the Department of Defense General Counsel addressing the legal parameters of the oath. The resulting opinion concluded that an individual may strike or omit the words “So help me God” from an enlistment or appointment oath if preferred.

First Lady Michelle Obama has made healthy eating and exercise her signature issue. But, a recent study published by the Sage Journal found that her “elitist” advice actually “shames poor and middle class mothers.” The College Fix added that the study found that Michelle Obama’s healthy eating program is also sexist. It’s also sexist, the study’s authors suggest, noting that “intentionally or not, it places the burden of a healthy home-cooked meal on women.” Sage Journals published the study by North Carolina researchers Sarah Bowen, Sinikka Elliott and Joslyn Brenton.

President Barack Obama unveiled his plan to tackle the Ebola crisis in West Africa on Tuesday, promising to do far more to tackle the deadly virus he said could result in "hundreds of thousands of people infected" without US intervention. "More than 2,400 men, women, and children are known to have died and we strongly suspect that the actual death toll is higher than that," Obama said in a speech at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in Atlanta, Georgia.

Democrats are now (very slightly) favored to hold the Senate majority on Nov. 4, according to Election Lab, the Post´s statistical model of the 2014 midterm elections. Election Lab puts Democrats´ chances of retaining their majority at 51 percent -- a huge change from even a few months ago when the model predicted that Republicans had a better than 80 percent chance of winning the six seats they need to take control. (Worth noting: When the model showed Republicans as overwhelming favorites, our model builders -- led by George Washington University´s John Sides -- warned that the model could and

The Obama administration is preparing to introduce major steps to phase out production of a popular chemical coolant used in refrigerators and air conditioners, citing growing evidence that the substance is contributing to the warming of the planet. The White House will announce on Tuesday a series of voluntary commitments by some of the country’s largest chemical firms and retailers to move rapidly away from R-134a and similar compounds used in nearly every office, home and automobile in the country, according to current and former U.S. officials familiar with the effort.

Bill Clinton never inhaled. Rush Limbaugh says he never smoked it. Marco Rubio won´t answer whether he ever did smoke pot but Sarah Palin admitted she smoked it in her youth and didn´t like it. Those pushing to have more states legalize marijuana consider this drug rather harmless, medically beneficial and liberal politicians consider this issue one that will attract voters. I don´t blame Rubio for not discussing whether he indulged n his youth or not. He is a public official with young children and carries a different responsibility than the rest of us.

On Monday, the 50-year-old politician was photographed by paparazzi looking fresh-faced without any cosmetics on.
