  • Dana Perino: Obama's Executive Amnesty Lawful

    11/22/2014 6:31:53 PM PST · by Javeth
    Breitbart News Network ^ | 11/21/2014 | Tony Lee
    Dana Perino, the Fox News co-cost and former spokeswoman for George W. Bush's White House, said that President Barack Obama's executive amnesty is well within the law. She admitted on Thursday's The Five that though she "might be an outlier on this," she believed "Republicans are really boxed in" on Obama's amnesty. "I don’t think that we’ll have the answer to the constitutional question for years," she said. "And at this point, I think the President has the prosecutorial discretion to do what he’s doing.” Hours before Obama formally announced his executive amnesty, Perino said Republicans "cannot stop the President...

    MOSCOW — Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. in Kiev on Friday condemned Russia for its “unacceptable” military intervention in Ukraine, while exhorting Ukraine’s newly elected government to complete its democratic and anticorruption reforms. During a joint news conference, Mr. Biden urged Ukraine’s president, Petro O. Poroshenko, to form a new government “in days, not weeks,” and to champion economic reforms, promote further economic integration with the West and root out what Mr. Biden called “the cancer of corruption.” “Even if the guns in the east fell silent tomorrow, Ukraine would still face a struggle for its democratic and economic...

    Republicans in Congress are unified in their desire to fight President Obama's action to protect more than 4 million immigrants from deportation and ease rules for up to 1 million more. They just can't agree on how to do it. Should they shut down the government? File a lawsuit? Or is there a more measured approach that could showcase Republican leadership, such as passing a legislative alternative? "We're working with our members and looking at the options that are available to us," House Speaker John A. Boehner said Friday. "But I will say to you that the House will, in...

    In the ongoing legal battle by Alan Gura to force the District of Columbia City Council to respect the second amendment of the Constitution, a request that the City government be held in contempt was file on Tuesday, the 18th of November, 2014.  It seems to come as a response to the city claiming that the Court lacked jurisdiction, because no request for a finding of contempt was fired. Judge Frederick J. Scullin, Jr gave the DC government until the 4th of December, and Gura's reply by the 11th of December.  From us.archive.org: TEXT SCHEDULING ORDER: regarding the #...

    A crowd gathered Saturday at a Chicago high school named for a Mexican president to rejoice in President Barack Obama's executive action to issue a reprieve for people living in the United States illegally whose children were born here — a decision that would shelter 4 million to 5 million from deportation. Chicago leaders, including Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Rep. Luis V. Gutierrez, D-Ill., addressed the crowd, most of whom were immigrants, at Benito Juarez Community Academy in Pilsen. Although they praised the president's action, they cautioned that the order was only a first step in immigration reform. "The hard...

    In its takeover of eastern Syria, the Islamic State, or ISIS, has reformed every aspect of society according to its strict interpretation of religious law. The reform of the education system has been especially intense. ISIS has banned any trace of the secular curriculum that used to be taught in local schools. Residents say they have burned old schoolbooks, which were considered a violation of divine law. Some students have fled ISIS territory to regime-held areas, seeking ways to continue their studies in the system they’ve always known. Others who’ve stayed behind are subject to the ISIS education system, shaped...

Cosby, 77, spoke to the newspaper Florida Today on Friday, before performing his comedy routine at a theater in Melbourne, Florida. The comedian has refused to address questions about allegations made by a number of women who said he forced himself on them sexually, with some accusing him of drugging them first. "I know people are tired of me not saying anything, but a guy doesn't have to answer to innuendos," Cosby told Florida Today,...

And then the shooting stopped. Apparently each gunman thought the other shot Ochwodho.

    U.S. Rep. Michael Grimm, the lone Republican member of the New York City congressional delegation, lashed out at President Barack Obama over his announcement to use executive action to overhaul the nation’s troubled immigration system. Grimm, who issued a statement following the president’s nationwide address on Thursday, stopped short of calling for impeachment, as other Republicans have done, but accused Obama of committing “a shameless act.” On Nov. 20, the president vowed to use executive action to prevent the deportation of some 5 million undocumented immigrants and added that he would clear the way for many of those immigrants to...

    Sixteen North Carolina judges have either resigned or retired after gay marriage became legal in the state last month when a judge ruled that an amendment to the state's constitution banning same-sex marriage was unconstitutional. In October, U.S. District Judge Max Cogburn of Asheville struck down the ban and ruled the amendment unconstitutional in response to a Charlotte-based lawsuit. Reports from the administrative office of the courts note that "between the ruling on Oct. 10 and the end of the month, 16 magistrates left their jobs, but the state wouldn't release why they left," Time Warner Cable News-Charlotte reports.

Monton's departure, which Chancellor Phil DiStefano termed "a business decision," comes during a year of turmoil for the Boulder campus' philosophy department, which has been accused of creating a culture that's perceived to be unfriendly to women. Monton had been under investigation for potentially violating the university's amorous relationship policy with students, CU officials confirmed. Both Monton and CU deny...

YMMV, but the New York Times suggests that the decision was made longer than just 17 days ago in this Friday night document dump: President Obama decided in recent weeks to authorize a more expansive mission for the military in Afghanistan in 2015 than originally planned, a move that ensures American troops will have a direct role in fighting in the war-ravaged country...

    On November 29, 1963, President Lyndon Johnson directed the Warren Commission to “evaluate all the facts” in the brutal November 22 murder of his predecessor, John F. Kennedy, on a downtown Dallas street in broad daylight. Reduced to its bare essentials, the investigation sought answers to three fundamental questions: Who, why and how? “Why” was entirely contingent on “who,” and that depended on “how.” Thus, the linchpin of the Warren Report—and every subsequent investigation—has always been precisely how Kennedy was assassinated in Dealey Plaza. That is the finding from which all the important answers flow; mishandle that question and the...

    A miraculous thing happened this week. After years of stonewalling Congress with claims that Lois Lerner’s emails were lost forever and could not be recovered, the IRS finally handed them over to congressional investigators for analysis. Up to 30,000 missing emails sent by former Internal Revenue Service official Lois Lerner have been recovered by the IRS inspector general, five months after they were deemed lost forever. The U.S. Treasury Inspector General for Tax Administration (TIGTA) informed congressional staffers from several committees on Friday that the emails were found among hundreds of “disaster recovery tapes” that were used to back up...

    Sen. Mary Landrieu’s (D) campaign in the Louisiana Senate runoff election has fallen flat. The endangered Democrat’s “Hail Mary” effort to convince the Senate to approve the Keystone pipeline failed, undercutting her argument that she should be returned to the Senate for her clout. She's fallen back on an advertising strategy that seeks to portray her GOP opponent, Rep. Bill Cassidy (La.), as bumbling and incompetent. But nearly three weeks into their final faceoff, it is Cassidy who is ahead in the polls, and Democrats who are worried that Landrieu’s efforts are falling short. “It didn’t work before, and if...

That’s why it’s not surprising that the bureaucrats at the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services would want to keep tweaking Obamacare. Mind you, it’s not so much because they think they can perfect the law. Rather, they keep tweaking the law in order to keep the American people from brandishing pitchforks and coming to Washington to tar and feather them and ride them out of town on a rail. Self-preservation can be a marvelous motivating factor. The geniuses who brought us the...

    Back when we first covered the release of the last American prisoners held by North Korea, questions were already making the rounds about Matthew Miller. He had allegedly gone to North Korea with the intention of defecting, had reportedly destroyed his passport and was ready to abandon the nation of his birth. Going by an interview in the Guardian this week, it looks like those reports were not exaggerated. For most people visiting North Korea, the prospect of being arrested during their trip is a source of some concern. But for 25-year old Californian Matthew Miller, it’s exactly what he...

Adding insult to injury, former President George W. Bush made the list. But it gets even better, former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was also included. The liberal website Raw Story bemoaned the very idea that the Smithsonian Institution “decided that George W. Bush is a more ‘significant’ figure in U.S. history” than the exalted one. Curiously, the only redeeming qualification Raw Story named when mentioning Obama is that he was the country’s first...

Fifty-eight percent of likely U.S. voters have an unfavorable opinion of Pelosi, according to a recent Rasmussen Reports poll. What’s more, a whopping 41 percent have a “very unfavorable” view of the Maryland native. What is there not to like about Pelosi? After all, Planned Parenthood awarded her with its “highest recognition of leadership, excellence, and outstanding contributions” for her work in support of abortion. Of course, being a “Catholic” the Catholic Church ruled that she...

    Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri justified a foiled plan to assassinate Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman (Yisrael Beytenu) on Friday, claiming that while he does not personally know of information regarding the plot, "all the leaders of the occupation are considered legitimate targets for resistance." "The leaders of the occupation, who are responsible for the killing of women and children and the desecration of holy places, are legitimate targets," he said, in remarks translated by Channel 10 news. On Thursday, the Israeli Security Agency (ISA or Shin Bet) revealed that three Hamas terrorists had been planning to assassinate Liberman during Operation...

    The Church spends a good deal of money on the education of priests and religious. From seminary or convent formation to continuing education workshops and retreats, the faithful, of course, bear the cost. In justice, what do the faithful receive in return? The cost of seminary education is considerable. Room, board and tuition, I’m told, is now something like $40,000 a year per seminarian. That amount is charged to the diocese; it does not include the various gifts and grants seminaries receive, and it is comparable to the overall cost of private college. Over a typical five-year formation period, the...

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Summary of Obama’s IRS scandal, as of November 22, 2014 In May 2013, the Washington Post reported that the IRS had illegally targeted conservative groups for additional reviews. Organizations with the words “tea party” or “patriot” were singled out for harassment, such as requiring them to provide a list of donors, details about their internet postings on social networking websites, and information about their family members.When this was first reported by the media in May 2013, Lois Lerner, who heads the IRS division that had conducted these illegal activities, claimed that only low level employees had...

    Following discussions last week, Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Saturday night is expected to propose a bill negating permanent residency status and social benefits from Arab residents of Jerusalem conducting riots and terrorist attacks. "It cannot be that those who act in terror against the state of Israel enjoy rights such as national insurance," said Netanyahu. The bill, which would include in its scope those inciting terrorism against the state, would target not only the Arab terrorists but their families as well in stripping their residency and social benefits. Interior Minister Gilad Erdan (Likud) on Saturday announced that he was...

    According to the latest research, the modern farming methods have improved crop production but it also induced great impact on carbon dioxide cycles in the atmosphere. This concerned the scientists as the new drawback of the technology has come forward. Two research teams found the “breathing” pattern of the terrestrial plants which showed emission and taking of carbon dioxide every year in a cyclic manner. Last week, NASA released a video which showed carbon dioxide emissions in East Asia, Europe and United States and then reached the Northern Hemisphere; after that plants cleaned the atmosphere then returned the carbon dioxide...

    For some time now, Modernist, Liberal, or self-defined "Moderate" and even "mildly conservative" papers and blogs have railed against the "merciless war" waged by Orthodox Catholics on Pope Francis and his orientations. We are right in the middle of the parable of the mote and the beam! Didn’t they criticize, without a moment of rest, John Paul II and his attempt at a minor "restoration", these good souls now giving lessons? Didn’t they destroy Benedict XVI up to the level of what can only be called his moral assassination? Benedict XVI, about whom liberals said among themselves, on the day...

    The Chinese government has proposed a cooperative arrangement with the Vatican regarding the appointment of Catholic bishops. The Beijing regime has clashed repeatedly with Rome over the appointment of bishops. The Vatican insists that all bishops must be appointed with a mandate from the Holy See, and has announced the excommunication of Chinese bishops appointed without that mandate. China, on the other hand, claims that the government-backed Catholic Patriotic Association should appoint bishops. In his 2007 letter on the Church in China, Pope Benedict XVI said that the universal Church cannot recognize the authority of a group like the Patriotic...
