  • Yes He Can, on Immigration

    The New York Times ^ | 04-05-2014 | The Editorial Board
    If President Obama means what he says about wanting an immigration system that reflects American values, helps the economy and taps the yearnings of millions of Americans-in-waiting, he is going to have to do something about it — soon and on his own. It has been frustrating to watch his yes-we-can promises on immigration reform fade to protestations of impotence and the blaming of others. All Mr. Obama has been saying lately is: No, in fact, we can’t, because Republicans and the law won’t let me. Mr. Obama is correct when he complains that long-term immigration repairs have been throttled...

    The White House may be celebrating its ObamaCare sign-up figures, but they appear to have misjudged the mood of the electorate. Few are celebrating the law or its impact, according to the latest poll from Quinnipiac, and that’s not the only issue on which they are dissatisfied, either. While Barack Obama declared the debate “over” on ObamaCare, 55% of people declared it very much open (via Jeff Dunetz): American voters oppose the Affordable Care Act 55 – 41 percent and 40 percent are less likely to vote for a candidate who supports Obamacare, while 27 percent are more likely and...

He spoke at Israel’s naval base in Eilat at the presentation of the 60 missiles, 181 mortar shells and hundreds of bullets unloaded from the Klos C that was apprehended by Israeli commandos on the Red Sea opposite Sudan last week.

    Last week, the Congressional Budget Office released a report discussing the ramifications of Obamacare. The report revealed that the work-hour equivalent of approximately 2.5 million jobs would disappear from the workforce, thanks to Obamacare, in a voluntary process in which employees would simply dump out of their jobs, knowing they could get health care through expanded Medicaid and federal subsidies they would lose by working. Sen. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., an ideological leftist thought leader, spun the report as a massive positive for Obamacare: “The single mom, who’s raising three kids (and) has to keep a job because of health care,...

Social and religious conservatism, the former KGB officer insisted, is the only way to prevent the world from slipping into “chaotic darkness.” Mr. Putin’s views of the West were echoed this month by Patriarch Kirill I of Moscow, the leader of the Orthodox Church, who accused Western...

    From what I recall of my childhood, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s civil rights movement was not universally embraced in the black community. Some blacks were frightened by his actions and angry at the “crazy” colored man for stirring up trouble. “He is making things worse for Negros!” MLK became an American icon. In 1977, world renowned architect Phillip Johnson was approached by Rev. Robert Schuller with his “crazy” impossible dream. “So, you want to build a glass cathedral in earthquake country without obstructed views to the front and you have no money?” Rev. Schuller replied, “Yes.” The Crystal Cathedral...

    A number of news outlets have reported that Angola has "banned" Islam and started to dismantle mosques in a bold effort to stem the spread of Muslim extremism. Weekly French-language Moroccan newspaper La Nouvelle Tribune published an article on Friday sourcing "several" Angolan officials, including the Southwest African nation's minister of culture, Rosa Cruz, who reportedly offered the following remarks, which have been translated from French: "The process of legalization of Islam has not been approved by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights. Their mosques would be closed until further notice." The media reports have not described why Islam...

    The defects of the Obamacare website have become well known. But the problems with the law go further than the website. These problems are not incidental, but central to its design and the intentions of its architects. Many Obamacare backers, including Barack Obama, would prefer "single-payer" health insurance. The government would pay for everything and you would get health care for free. There is an inconsistency here with the way we treat other things regarded as the basics of life -- food, shelter, clothing. Government subsidizes food purchases only for some -- though a sharply increasing number in the Obama...

    November 20, 2013, 12:13 pm 'Uh oh': O-Care site crashes on Sebelius By Jonathan Easley The troubled HealthCare.Gov website crashed in front of Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius on Tuesday in Miami. A local CBS reporter jumped in while Sebelius was doing a test run on the site to say, “the screen says 'I’m sorry but the system is temporarily down.' ” “Uh oh,” Sebelius responded. The secretary held events in Orlando and Miami on Tuesday encouraging people to sign up for healthcare despite the problems the administration has had in getting the website up and running.

    The Internal Revenue Service issued $4 billion in fraudulent tax refunds last year to people using stolen identities, with some of the money going to addresses in Bulgaria, Lithuania and Ireland, according to a Treasury report released Thursday. The IRS sent a total of 655 tax refunds to a single address in Lithuania, and 343 refunds went to a lone address in Shanghai. In the U.S., more fraudulent returns went to Miami than any other city. Other top destinations were Chicago, Detroit, Atlanta and Houston.
  • President Obama didn't misspeak; He lied (and lied and lied!!!)

    Let's clear up some foggy prevarications polluting President Obama's ongoing snow job for ObamaCare: If you tell a spouse you're going to Sam's Club when you really mean Costco, that's no big deal. Those membership stores are the same, except one peddles better hot dogs. That's called misspeaking. However, if you're president of the United States peddling a legislative tumor like ObamaCare, one that you know will drastically change almost one-fifth of the nation's economy, one that openly claims to help a few million uninsured Americans while secretly disrupting the lives, families, finances and medical care of more than 100...

    Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas), the political face of the recent government shutdown, will make his first late night TV appearance on Nov. 8 when he guests on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno.”Cruz’s appearance reflects the increasingly common trend of political figures, no matter how controversial, venturing into late night, often in hopes of softening their image or reaching audiences normally not tuned in to politics. Cruz is mentioned as a possible candidate in 2016, and his appearance would be in line with other past candidates who have appeared in late night in advance of a run. In 2010,...

    Appearing on CNN on Tuesday, actor Sean Penn stated that he had a solution to the problem of the Tea Party. “Let's go to the Tea Party influence on Congress,” he said. “I think there is a mental health problem in Congress. This would be solved by committing them by executive order. I think, because these are our American brothers and sisters, we shouldn't be criticizing them or attacking them. This is a cry for help.” Penn then added that the Obama administration should commit Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX). “We should take care of him,” said the actor famous for...
