White House takes suggestions
from business on immigration changes

CBS News, by Rebecca Kaplan

Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 8/19/2014 7:18:37 PM

In addition to reviewing the deportation system of immigrants in the U.S. illegally, the Obama administration is weighing executive actions to change the legal immigration system in ways that could benefit businesses, the Wall Street Journal reports. In more than 20 meetings this summer, White House and other administration officials have recruited suggestions from industries like technology, agriculture and construction. High-tech firms, in search of ways to increase the number of skilled foreign workers that can come to the U.S., have pitched the idea of excluding workers´ spouses from the 140,000-per-year visa cap. They would also like to see the

Spot on, #3, and that´s 140,000 foreigners a year--A YEAR--taking jobs from skilled Americans, including Mr A, a vet who hates working for about the same amount of money he was making around 12 years ago. Never mind all the ConEd he´s done or the experience he´s gained, or the loyalty and conscientiousness he´s known for--bring in the foreigners who´ll work for what they can get until they can obtain a green card and start bringing in their relatives and collecting some welfare and social security payments. Yes, it can be done. Just look online at the astonishing number of law firms who advertise all sorts of things they can do for H-1B visa imports.

I hope Democrats understand what he´s doing. He´s not working to prepare more Americans to take high paying jobs, he´s looking to import more foreign workers to prevent Americans from taking high paying jobs. Hope and change.

FTA: White House and other administration officials have recruited suggestions from industries like technology, agriculture and construction

Isn´t it great that Obama doesn´t have a Congress to deal with. He can take suggestions directly from executives and illegal immigration supporters without ever having to be bothered with the House and Senate. If our founding fathers hadn´t been old white landowners, we could have elimated the expense of Comgress 225 years ago. Instead, we had to wait for Obama´s reelection to finally get rid of 535 senators, representatives and their staffs.

Obama, he may be a tyrant, but he´s our tyrant.

But but Barry you will be taking jobs from not only legal white citizens but perhaps the black population will stop rioting if their unemployment rises from 50% no jobs because you don´t consider them more than just slaves.

Unlike her husband, Michelle Obama doesn´t do extended press conferences. But during a visit Wednesday to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee, the first lady took any and all questions from the kids she met there, dishing on everything from her daughters´ prank skills to the president´s cooking. Here´s a top five list of what she revealed about life inside the White House. 1. The president is the target for most of the family´s pranks, though Sasha and Malia need to work on the element of surprise. Asked whom she likes to prank the most, Obama replied, "Oh,

The House on Wednesday passed legislation to audit the Federal Reserve System. Passed 333-92, the bill would require the comptroller general to conduct an audit of the Federal Reserve´s board of governors and banks within one year and submit a report to Congress on the findings. A total of 106 Democrats joined all but one Republican in support of the measure. A version of the bill sponsored by then-Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) passed in 2012 by a vote of 327-98. Paul´s son, Sen.

Benghazi Select Committee hearings begin
American Thinker, by Carol Brown    Original Article

An odd mixture of theatre, seriousness, and even a bit of unintentional self-parody from Rep. Elijah Cummings, kicked off the House Select Committee hearings on Benghazi. On Wednesday, the Committee held its first hearing. The topic, which was proposed by Congressman Adam Schiff (D-CA), was looking back at Accountability Review Board recommendations to make sure we learn from the past, not repeat mistakes, and protect lives. Uh-huh. Sounds like a nice safe distance from the core of the matter: Name the enemy, fight jihad, and hold every single member of the administration accountable for their irresponsible (at best) actions, or

New York Times Public Editor Margaret Sullivan is right to side with news consumers who are concerned about journalists from the paper meeting for off-the-record sessions with President Obama. One such session occurred last Wednesday, just before the president gave his speech on the response to the Islamic State. As the Huffington Post’s Michael Calderone reported, well-known figures from the New Yorker, The Post and the Times were among those in attendance. One reader, Tom English, complained to Sullivan: “To me, it really looks like the meeting was held to run talking/propaganda points by the media to see how best

Census: Marriage rate at 93-year
low, even including same-sex couples
Washington Examiner (DC), by Paul Bedard    Original Article
Posted By: JoniTx- 9/18/2014 10:47:24 AM     Post Reply
The Census Bureau reported Thursday that the nation’s marriage rate is the lowest since 1920, and the first-time inclusion of same sex married couples did little to reverse the decline. According to Pew Research Center analysis, the marriage rate of Americans 18 and older hit a bottom of 50.3 percent in 2013, down from 50.5 percent in 2012. In 1920, the first year mentioned, 65 percent were married, and the marriage rate hit a high of 72.2 percent in 1960. The new data did not put a number on the homes hosting same-sex married couples, though the Census last year

State police continue the round-the-clock manhunt for the man they say ambushed state troopers at the Blooming Grove barracks. Cpl. Bryon Dickson II was killed and Trooper Alex Douglass seriously wounded in the Friday night attack. Police say suspected sniper Eric Matthew Frein, 31, of Canadensis, stalked police from a hidden, wooded area across the road from the barracks, around 11 p.m., and then shot the troopers during a shift change. "Based on our investigation, it is clear to us that Eric Frein has a longstanding grudge with law enforcement and government in general since 2006," said state police Lt.

WASHINGTON – In a symbolic show of support for Ukraine´s fledgling government, President Barack Obama is meeting with Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko in the Oval Office on Thursday after the leader of the former Soviet republic speaks to a rare joint session of Congress. Poroshenko arrives in Washington seeking more robust U.S military assistance to help his country in its fight against Russian-backed rebels. Obama so far has resisted Ukraine´s request for lethal assistance, though the U.S. has provided about $60 million in nonlethal aid to Ukraine´s military. White House officials made clear that Poroshenko´s visit -- his first to

The Republican Party is, more than ever before in its history, an anti-urban party,” the New York Times op-ed page declared after the 2012 elections, a contest that saw the GOP trounced in city after blue-tinged city—and not just at the top of the ballot. Last year, Politico’s Alexander Burns dubbed urban Republicans “perhaps the nation’s most severely endangered political species,” and noted that the largest America city to elect one of these rare creatures recently was Indianapolis, Indiana—all the way down at 13th on the population charts.

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. "Hospitals, clinics, and the few treatment centers that do exist have been completely overwhelmed." The president was particularly dire

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

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for
