  • Anatomy of a flip-flop: Dan Lipinski's path to immigration reform

    10/22/2014 4:35:25 PM PDT · by ObamahatesPACoal · 5 replies
    When it comes to liberal causes, U.S. Rep. Dan Lipinski usually is a stranger. The Southwest Sider is a Blue Dog Democrat in a party in which moderate conservatives like him have almost disappeared. Last year he was one of just seven House Democrats — and the only one from Illinois — to vote against re-electing Nancy Pelosi as House Democratic leader. He's joined with Republicans in a variety of causes and not too long ago was clearly pleased when his name was floated as a potential U.S. ambassador to the Vatican. (SNIP) Though Mr. Lipiinski kind of shrugs it...

    ANCHORAGE - The Pebble Partnership is suing the Environmental Protection Agency in federal court, seeking more details on what it calls “secretive meetings” by the agency with environmental groups and anti-Pebble activists. Pebble claims it filed a Jan. 22 Freedom of Information Act request with the EPA for any communications concerning the project between senior EPA officials, including Administrator Lisa Jackson, and a group of 16 people and organizations. The National Resources Defense Council, Trout Unlimited, the Bristol Bay Native Corp., and Sen. Mark Begich, as well as some of their employees, were listed specifically.

    CHARLESTON, WV – Natalie Tennant got a little help from her friend President Obama today when the White House announced it would delay executive action on immigration until after the midterm elections – a move intended to benefit Democratic candidates like Tennant. The Capito for Senate campaign released the following statement in response: “It’s appalling that President Obama would delay his deeply unpopular plan to grant amnesty to illegal immigrants until after the election as a political trick to help struggling Democrats like Natalie Tennant.

The law, which requires proof of citizenship for new Kansas voters, has left 22,000 would be registrants -- not so. "And now we have 22,000 people, who are citizens, in limbo. They don't have cell phones and smart phones," said Democrat Jean Schodorf (SNIP) Kobach said that his billing records show that he spent no more time per week on such activities than he would have on a round of golf.

The issue brought renewed negative attention to the long troubled school district of Hempstead, which has yet to accept its rapidly growing Latino population. As of last week, advocates say, at least 35 of these students who had successfully enrolled in Hempstead High School had not received instruction one single day. Other sources say as many as 70 kids are waiting to be accommodated. “There is a tough relationship between the community and...

According to an October 8-11 poll conducted by Oregon Public Broadcasting, 61% of likely voters were opposed to Measure 88. 53% said they were "certain" to oppose the measure while another 8% said they were opposed to it but "may change mind." 26% of Oregon voters said they supported giving driver's licenses to illegal immigrants while 5% said they supported the measure but "may change mind."

If you vote no on Measure 88, which would allow Oregon to assign driver’s cards to people who can’t (or just won’t) produce documents proving their legal residency in the United States, that’s exactly what you’ll be doing.

  • Bucking trend, judge upholds same-sex marriage ban in Puerto Rico, citing ‘procreative potential’

    The Washington Post ^ | October 22, 2014 | Gail Sullivan
    On Tuesday, a federal judge in Puerto Rico bucked the trend towards marriage equality, upholding a ban on same-sex marriage. The commonwealth romantically defined marriage in a 1999 law as a “civil contract whereby a man and woman mutually agree to become husband and wife.” “Because no right to same-gender marriage emanates from the Constitution, the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico should not be compelled to recognize such unions,” U.S. District Judge Juan Perez-Gimenez wrote in his opinion, which will now move to a federal appeals court. Adding his own two cents, Perez-Giminez concluded: “Traditional marriage is the fundamental unit of...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)If the local grand jury brings no charges against police Officer Darren Wilson in the case of Michael Brown's killing, street protests in Ferguson, Missouri, are inevitable. Demonstrators angry about Wilson's shooting of the unarmed black teenager in August already decry the grand jury's secrecy and "lack of transparency." But for those who believe that the grand jury procedure is some sort of cop and prosecutor conspiracy to trample the rights of minority citizens, a little background on this hallowed institution might be in order. Although prosecutors are often accused of controlling grand jury proceedings, the institution was actually created...

    Big-government aficionado Paul Krugman is calling for “public action to curb the power” of an entity he can’t quite bring himself to call a monopoly, even as he nonetheless compares its “abuses” to those of John D. Rockefeller’s Standard Oil company. The subject of his ire? “Amazon.com, the giant online retailer, has too much power, and it uses that power in ways that hurt America,” Krugman whines. “Does Amazon really have robber-baron-type market power? When it comes to books, definitely,” Krugman insists. “Amazon overwhelmingly dominates online book sales, with a market share comparable to Standard Oil’s share of the refined...

    More than a dozen lucky rabbits were given Swedish massages four times a day, courtesy of U.S. taxpayers, as part of a study to figure out whether massage can help recovery times after strenuous exercise — a practice Sen. Tom Coburn says makes a mockery of federal spending.

    After warning in August that hundreds of miners could lose their jobs, Boone County-based Coal River Energy has laid off 130 mine workers. Coal River Energy spokesman James "Skeets" Loving confirmed the layoffs Tuesday. In August, the company warned that 280 mine workers could be out of jobs. Loving said the company laid off 130 employees on Oct. 11, while keeping 94 workers and finding other work for 56 others. The affected mining areas are located near the border of Boone and Kanawha counties. Some are underground and some are surface mines. The company pointed to poor coal markets and...

    As one state after another sees their marriage protection laws fall to activist judges citing the equal protection clause of the 14th Amendment as justification for redefining marriage, President Barack Obama has gone further than the Supreme Court, insisting there is a constitutional “right” to same-sex “marriage” in an interview with The New Yorker. “Ultimately, I think the Equal Protection Clause does guarantee same-sex marriage in all 50 states,” Obama told the magazine. But he said he respects the Supreme Court for avoiding a final ruling on the issue, saying he sees their procrastination as a “strategic” move to allow...

    americanthinker.com ^ | 10/22/2014 | Monty Pelerin
    Doofus is an unusual but appropriate appellation for President Barack Hussein Obama. What Is A Doofus? "Doofus" is slang referring to a boob, for which the thesaurus lists the following synonyms -- idiot, nitwit, dunce, fathead, fool, goof, goon, imbecile, jerk. Some might argue that these synonyms may be inapplicable. Perhaps, but a diminishing percentage would argue that none are applicable. Such a characterization of the president five years ago might have seemed radical or harsh. Even the few who felt that way are probably surprised at the incomparable ineptness of Obama and his Administration.

With all the pathologies on parade right now in and around Ferguson, really, how could the loyalists of ACORN, which once claimed a membership of 400,000, have stayed away from the opportunity to lynch a white police officer for doing his job? The recruiting and fundraising opportunities for the cop-hating progressive movement are virtually unlimited.

A Pew Hispanic Research study found that though a record 25.2 million Latinos (11 percent of eligible voters nationwide) are eligible to vote in the 2014 midterm elections, "in many states with close Senate and gubernatorial races this year, Latinos make up a smaller share of eligible voters."

Oh, sorry, that didn’t happen. The new Ebola czar is not an expert in infectious diseases, or in public health, or even a doctor.

    Thousands of emails prosecutors collected during the first secret investigation into Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker's former aides and associates when he was a county executive were released Tuesday, prompting allegations from Walker and other Republicans that the timing two weeks before the election was politically motivated. Milwaukee County Executive Chris Abele's office made public the nearly 16,000 emails and attachments that prosecutors seized from county and personal computers during the investigation that ended in 2013. Walker was never charged but six of his aides and associates were convicted on charges ranging from theft to misconduct in office. The documents' release...

    After spending the weekend golfing, President Barack Obama flew to Chicago Monday to vote in the 2014 midterm elections. Reporters were there to film the event. At one point one of the workers tells Obama to “Vote Democrat.” Of course, this is against the law. Cook County is a Campaign-Free Zone – asking voters to vote a particular way is strictly prohibited..

    The Kentucky Republican Party is offering volunteers all-expenses-paid trips to join Sen. Mitch McConnell's (R-Ky.) campaign bus tour and "contribute to an enthusiastic atmosphere" at his events. In an email sent earlier this month and obtained by The Hill, Taylor Bumgardner, a Kentucky Republican Party regional political director, offers volunteers the opportunity to join McConnell on his tour, which launched Monday. Meals, lodging and transportation are included in the trip. "Senator McConnell is seeking volunteers to join him on a 3-day campaign bus tour around the state on October 20-22 to show our support for Kentucky coal. You would join...

    The Democrat mantra that voting fraud is rare takes another blow today with the stunning story of a GOP candidate unable to vote for himself in Cook County Illinois. The Illinois Political Review reports: Admitting his confidence in Cook County ballot integrity is shaken, State Representative Candidate Jim Moynihan (R-56), was shocked today when he tried to cast a vote for himself and the voting machine cast it for his opponent instead. “While early voting at the Schaumburg Public Library today, I tried to cast a vote for myself and instead it cast the vote for my opponent,” said Moynihan....

    Video cameras? Yes please! Give me one. Maybe two or three. I am absolutely a HUGE proponent of law enforcement using in-car and body mounted cameras. Some ask why I feel so strongly about the subject, and to them I offer the following personal anecdote. I have personally benefited greatly from the video obtained by a digital video camera, the in-car camera system in my patrol car. A number of years ago, I was involved in an incident where, as I arrived at the scene of a call, I came under fire by a suspect armed with a rifle. I...

    Ever since I was a kid I’ve been fascinated with WWII warbirds, my favorite being the P-51 Mustang. The North American P-51 Mustangs were armed with six .50 caliber M2 Browning machine guns, a good amount of firepower for the day. If you’ve been to airshows around the US I’m sure you’ve seen a P-51 at least once, but there’s something different about Ron Fagen’s P-51 Mustang named Twilight Tear. His actually has six functioning M2 Browning machine guns, kind of, read on.

    GoDaddy founder Bob Parsons rarely shies away from controversy--even when wading into the contentious debate over gun violence in this country. Parsons, a gun owner and member of the National Rifle Association, says that firearms aren’t to blame for mass shootings. That’s a hotly-debated and emotional topic, especially after a gunman killed 20 people at Sandy Hook Elementary School in 2012.

    The Supreme Court’s recent decision not to take up challenges to state amendments banning same-sex marriage has had two significant effects – it has expanded marriage to 30 states and reignited the political conversation around marriage equality in the 2014 midterms. Since 2011, I have worked with Project Right Side to help Republican leaders navigate a radically changing electorate on the freedom to marry. While public acceptance of marriage equality has steadily increased, this moment may ultimately be looked upon as the point where Republican opposition to marriage equality began to fall in earnest. According to a recent poll of...

    Houston recently passed an ordinance through its city council that has sparked quite a bit of controversy amongst conservative evangelicals. The Houston Equal Rights Ordinance (HERO), a broad-sweeping, left-leaning law trumpeted by the City of Houston and its openly gay mayor, Annise Parker, is supposed to protect gay, lesbian and transgender people from discrimination. All well and good, but according to the Independent Journal Review, the ordinance to ensure nondiscrimination, discriminates against those of faith who oppose it. Five pastors, members of Houston's conservative, evangelical base, oppose HERO, as does the liberal Americans United for the Separation of Church and...
