  • DESPITE OBAMA'S CLAIMS, AMNESTY WILL GIVE SOME ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS FEDERAL BENEFITS

    Obama went to pains to note that his executive order, giving five million illegal immigrants amnesty, would not qualify them for federal benefits. But new reports are casting doubt on Obama's claims. Despite claims to the contrary, Obama's amnesty will likely give millions of illegals access to Medicare, Social Security, and other benefits programs, several sources say. According to The Washington Post, Obama's amnesty order will give millions of illegals the status of being "lawfully present" in the USA. This status will require them to pay taxes, but as White House spokesman Shawn Turner notes, "If they pay in, they...

    President Obama characterized GOP critics of his Executive Order granting new rights to illegal immigrants as "excessively whiny. I've been really quite restrained compared to what I could have done." To help illustrate his self-imposed mercy, the President reminded his critics that "President Lincoln was far harsher with his critics than I have been. Hundreds of men were summarily arrested and their property confiscated for their criticism of his actions to suppress the secessionist movement. I have, as yet, done nothing of a similar nature, though my advisers tell me I'd be within my rights to do so." "Neither have...

    With the 2014 election now in the history books, the reality is that the 2016 campaign is upon us. And you can expect Texas to get more time in the spotlight now that the 2016 GOP presidential primary is a main attraction. Four candidates with direct or indirect connections to the Lone Star State are on most early lists of top potential candidates: Gov. Rick Perry, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz and two scions of families with strong Texas ties — U.S. Sen. Rand Paul of Kentucky, the son of former Texas Congressman (and frequent presidential aspirant) Ron Paul, and...

    “I don’t want to say they’re unsafe, but they’re dangerous.” That was how President Obama’s former transportation secretary Ray LaHood described America’s roads and bridges in a pre-Thanksgiving interview on CBS’s 60 Minutes. The high-profile story left viewers with the distinct impression that America’s roads and bridges are crumbling, and politicians were to blame. First, let’s dispense with the notion that travel in America is a life-jeopardizing experience. According to the Federal Highway Administration’s own 2013 report, the number of structurally deficient and functionally obsolete bridges has decreased every year since 2000. This same report also shows that fatalities and...

    On Monday night, after the release of the grand jury verdict rejecting indictment of Officer Darren Wilson in the Ferguson, Missouri shooting of 18-year-old black man Michael Brown, President Obama took to the microphones. “We need to recognize that this is not just an issue for Ferguson, this is an issue for America,” he said. “[T]here are still problems and communities of color aren't just making these problems up.” Obama was wrong, at least in the case of Darren Wilson. In viewing thousands of pages of FBI interviews and grand jury testimony, it becomes eminently clear that many members of...

    JOHANNESBURG (Reuters) - Barack Obama last year told a cheering crowd in Cape Town that a $7 billion plan to "Power Africa" would double electricity output on the world's poorest continent and bring "light where currently there is darkness". A year later, the U.S. president's flagship project for Africa has already achieved 25 percent of its goal to deliver 10,000 megawatts of electricity and bring light to 20 million households and businesses, according to its annual report. But the five-year plan has not yet delivered the power. Power Africa has not measured its progress by counting actual megawatts added to...

In one of his first public moves since winning the attorney general race on Nov. 4, Laxalt signed onto a joint statement sponsored by the Republican Attorneys General Association objecting to Obama’s decision to prevent the deportation of an estimated 5 million people. The statement also questions the validity of Obama’s oath to “protect the Constitution.” Signed by 20 attorneys general and attorneys general-elects, the letter doesn’t outline any course of legal action from RAGA members.

    Now that President Barack Obama has granted legal relief to as many as 5 million unauthorized immigrants, Republicans are thrashing about for an effective response. Only a few hard-liners are talking about impeachment now, but more could join them out of frustration with their other options. Many people in both parties have tried to quell such talk by saying the president is within his powers to issue the order. The problem is the pro-impeachment Republicans are right: There is a plausible case for taking that step. By constitutional design, impeachment for “treason, bribery, or other high crimes and misdemeanors” is...

In a high-profile speech on Tuesday dissecting Democrats' losses in this month's midterm elections, Charles Schumer, the No. 3 Senate Democrat, listed "a cascade of issues" botched by the White House, starting with Obama's push for healthcare reforms soon after he took office in 2009.

    resident Barack Obama tried to put a positive spin on his decision to issue an executive order to give several million illegal aliens clemency but his move also may have an unintended consequence of creating heightened job competition for America’s unemployed. Despite President Obama’s historic role as the country’s first African head of state, his new policy actually may hurt unemployed African Americans as much as any segment of the U.S. population. The addition of nearly 5 million people into the mainstream workforce to seek employment will increase competition for jobs and put downward pressure on wages, at least in...

    How Obama’s amnesty will give non-citizen law-breakers access to a “wide array” of programs — and an advantage in the job market.

On Tuesday, a White House official told the Washington Post that many illegals now protected from deportation will be eligible to receive a “wide array” of government benefits, including Social Security and Medicare. The admission verifies that, once again, Americans are forced to endure another lie perpetrated by the president. When he announced his executive action last Thursday, Obama was...

Among whites who´ve graduated college, Obama´s approval stands at 41%, also a new low in the Gallup poll. (Graph) Perhaps most troubling of all for Obama: Gallup´s data only extended to the end of October, well before the recent racially-charged riots broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, and protests across the country. "About two-thirds of adult whites have not graduated from college, making working-class whites a particularly important group politically because of its sheer size,"

    When Ferguson, Mo., police officer Darren Wilson left the scene of the shooting of unarmed teenager Michael Brown, the officer returned to the police station unescorted, washed blood off his hands and placed his recently fired pistol into an evidence bag himself.

Wilson’s movements after the shooting were among a number of police actions in the aftermath of Brown’s death that experts said were unusual. The grand jury transcripts revealed, for example, that...

It is the latest effort by industry groups to roll back regulations that would reduce emissions like mercury, soot, sulfur, smog and carbon dioxide. The case also threatens to undermine one of the administration’s most significant victories and chip away at President Obama’s legacy.

    The Obama administration took steps Wednesday to cut levels of smog-forming pollution linked to asthma, lung damage and other health problems, making good on one of President Barack Obama’s original campaign promises while setting up a fresh confrontation with Republicans and the energy industry. In a long-awaited announcement, the Environmental Protection Agency said it prefers a new, lower threshold for ozone pollution of 65 to 70 parts per billion, but left open the possibility it could enact an even lower standard of 60 parts per billion sought by environmental groups. The current standard is 75 parts per billion, put in...

    Comedian Dana Carvey understands why comedians initially tread carefully when joking about President Barack Obama, the nation's first black Commander in Chief. What the former Saturday Night Live standout can't fathom is why fellow comic Dennis Miller got taken to the pop culture woodshed for embracing conservatism. Carvey expounded on his career, political humor and the host of radio's syndicated program The Dennis Miller Show during a wide-ranging chat with Carl Kozlowski's Radio Titans podcast Kozversations. The pair addressed the current state of political comedy, with Carvey sharing how he views his role as a stand-up and social commentator. In...

    That split screen of President Obama talking while Ferguson burned was the perfect image of the Obama presidency. On one side of the screen, Obama was asking for calm and praising his Attorney General Eric Holder for the work he did to promote peace and calm. On the other side, Ferguson was under attack- being looted and burned. That’s “the money shot”- the iconic image of the Obama presidency. It was almost as if Obama was saying to Ferguson, “IF YOU LIKE YOUR CITY, YOU CAN KEEP YOUR CITY.” Obama's Ferguson speech turned out to be as truthful as the...

    Blogger Doug Ross -founder of BadBlue News and a favorite of conservative hero Mark Levin- has gone from semi-famous in the conservative world to infamous amongst those in the ironically-named 'progressive' movement...  and NOW even the White House, as he's proudly made Obama's enemies list, according to a message from a Holder Justice Dept. hack revealed in a recent Friday document dump. Seems Eric 'With' Holder was caught lying by CBS rouge-reporter Sheryl Attkinson, Doug Ross, and others when they discovered the AG was briefed on 'Fast n Furious' a full year before he had previously claimed... while the scheming White...

    The only Americans who can legitimately object to immigration are native Indian-Americans, President Barack Obama told his Chicago audience Nov. 24, as he made an impassioned ideological plea for endless immigration, cultural diversity and a big government to manage the resulting multicultural society. “There have been periods where the folks who were already here suddenly say, ‘Well, I don’t want those folks,’ even though the only people who have the right to say that are some Native Americans,” Obama said, rhetorically dismissing the right of 300 million actual Americans to decide who can live in their homeland. Americans should not...

    The great thing about Obama’s teleprompter is that when he stops reading from it, he slips up and tells the truth.Daniel Halper: The White House has argued that President Obama’s executive amnesty order last week was made well within the existing law. But in remarks in Chicago tonight, President Obama went off script and admitted that in fact he unilaterally made changes to the law. President Obama made the admission after getting heckled for several minutes by immigration protesters. “Now, you’re absolutely right that there have been significant numbers of deportations. That’s true. But what you are not paying attention...

    The Defense Secretary job opening is emerging as a thanks-but-no-thanks opportunity, as some of the top potential prospects have already said they’re not interested in the job. Within minutes of reports Monday that Secretary Chuck Hagel would resign, the names of Michele Flournoy and Rhode Island Sen. Jack Reed emerged as top prospects. But each made clear by the end of the day that they didn’t want the coveted but high-wire, Cabinet-level post. The new secretary would indeed step into a difficult and complicated world, with the emergence of the deadly and unpredictable militant group Islamic State, amid Defense Department...

    The US Army plans to deploy about 150 tanks and armoured vehicles to NATO countries next year and some of the heavy armour may be stationed in Eastern Europe, a top American general said on Tuesday. The move is part of a US effort dubbed Operaton Atlantic Resolve in the Baltic states and Poland to reassure allies anxious about a 'resurgent Russia', with American troops deploying for several months at a time to conduct joint exercises. Nearly 50 armoured vehicles are already in place and another 100 M1 Abrams tanks and Bradley fighting vehicles will be "pre-positioned" in Germany and...
