President Obama’s ‘Gruber’ Immigration Speech: Say One Thing, Do Another

Great breakdown by Newt of how Obama said one thing in the speech, but actually intends to do so much more unconstitutional action.

(CNN) — President Barack Obama’s speech Thursday night was technically a fine speech. It sounded good. It was rhetorically impressive. Its problem — or perhaps to the President its virtue — is that very little of it was true.

President Obama described what sounded like a reasonable plan to prioritize the deportation of felons, criminals and gang members over the deportation of other people in the United States illegally. “We’ll prioritize,” he said, “just like law enforcement does every day.” The whole proposal was entirely within his authority, he argued, because it amounted to a kind of prosecutorial discretion: “All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.”

But the policy the White House actually announced, as opposed to the policy the President described in his speech, was not merely a directive to emphasize enforcement against those who have committed crimes, or even a simple pause on deportations for millions of Americans here illegally. The policy the White House actually announced, in a memo from its Office of Legislative Affairs hours before the President’s speech, was a 17-point plan including several new programs without congressional approval, budget appropriation or spending authorization, and many of which the President either didn’t mention or which bore only a faint resemblance to what he described in his speech.

Decision In #Ferguson Case Not Expected Before Monday

Ferguson peacekeeper

At this point, the dragging this out, and seemingly announcing, “it’s coming” every weekend is just ridiculous. Get on with it already!

Via CBS:

Multiple sources tell CBS News that the announcement of a grand jury decision in the Michael Brown shooting case is not expected before Monday.

A 12-member jury is weighing whether to indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson, who is white, with fatally shooting Brown, a black teenager who was unarmed, on Aug. 9. The case triggered months of protests on the streets of Ferguson, some of which turned violent.

The community is bracing for the grand jury’s report, with Brown’s family joining President Obama and Attorney General Eric Holder urging people to remain peaceful.

Federal, state and local law enforcement agencies have deployed additional officers to the area in advance of any demonstrations.

Hirsi Ali Slams Modern American ‘Feminism': Focuses On “Trivial Bullshit”

Ayaan Hirsi Ali

Sing it, sister!

Via Washington Examiner:

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, a harsh critic of Islam’s treatment of women, said Wednesday that modern American feminism is focused on “trivial bullshit” and needs to be reclaimed.

Speaking at the Independent Women’s Forum Women of Valor dinner, where she received an award for courage, Hirsi Ali reminded her audience of how far feminism has strayed from its original purpose.

“I want you to remember that once upon a time, feminists fought for the access — basic right — access of girls to education,” she said.

Hirsi Ali — who despite the harsh words she said, spoke softly, almost timidly — told the story of a fight between her mother and father when she was about 11 years old. Her mother wanted to take her and her sister out of school because education would lead them to rebel against their family and “bring shame upon us.” Her father responded by saying, “If you take my girls out of school, I am going to curse you and you are going to burn in hell.”

Report: One In Three Black Inmates Convert To Islam While In Prison…

A Muslim covert with a predisposition to violence… what could possibly go wrong?

Via Daily Caller:

Back in 2006, then FBI director Robert Mueller prophetically described the radical Islamist conversion machine operating throughout U.S. prisons, to a Senate committee. He said that prisons were a “fertile ground” for Islamic extremists, and that they targeted inmates for introduction to the militant Wahhabi and Salafist strains of Islam.

The recent so-called “lone wolf” terrorist attacks in Oklahoma City, New York, and just over our northern border in the Canadian capital of Ottawa, may be the product of such radicalization. [...]

Last month NYPD officer Kenneth Healey, 25, was axed to death with a hatchet to the side of the head. He was not attacked by a “lone wolf,” but by ex-con Zale Thompson. New York City Police Commissioner William Bratton has called it a terrorist attack, and the NYPD might want to look at Thompson’s record in California where he did two brief terms in California prisons.

The statistics are staggering, and woefully out of date. One out of three African-American inmates in U.S. prisons convert to Islam while incarcerated.

This statistic is no longer limited to African-Americans in prison. The Huffington Post reported an estimated 35,000 – 40,000 inmates convert to Islam each year, and that 15 percent of the total U.S. prison population or 350,000 inmates are Muslim.

This is more than 18 times the national representation of Muslims in America, reported to be 0.8 percent. Prisons are churning out converts to Islam who are taught they are righteously entitled to control the religion, speech, and dress of family, co-workers and strangers.

Suing Mom And Dad

Screen Shot 2014-11-22 at 4.49.53 PM

In our entitlement culture, 21 is a child and college a right. Insanity. The parents will probably win on appeal but how sad.

Via NY Post:

What is it about kids in New Jersey suing their parents for tuition?

Last fall, Rachel Canning walked out on her parents and then demanded they still pay her tuition at a local Catholic high school. She lost her suit, and is now back with her mom and dad.

But Caitlyn Ricci hit the jackpot. This South Jersey daughter is on the outs with her folks, Michael Ricci and Maura McGarvey. This month, mom and dad took a financial hit when a state judge ordered them to pay $16,000 a year toward Caitlyn’s tuition at Temple University after she sued them.

There are conflicting stories about whether Caitlyn left her mother’s house on her own or was kicked out.

But there’s no dispute on the other main facts: Her parents are split; Caitlyn is living with her paternal grandparents; and she and her folks have barely spoken to one another these past two years.

In his ruling, the judge cited a 1982 New Jersey Supreme Court ruling that parents may be required to pay their children’s college education. That’s nuts. The good news is that a state assemblyman is proposing a law that would prevent these kind of suits.

We understand family squabbles can be nasty, and children are often the victims. But Caitlyn Ricci is not a helpless child. She’s a 21-year-old adult. Even in New Jersey, it should not be impossible to hope the law would treat her as one.

State Official: St. Louis Cops Have Received “Sensitivity Training” Prior To Ferguson Verdict…

Via Breitbart:

Missouri Director of Public Safety Dan Isom told reporters on Friday afternoon that part of local law enforcement’s instruction during the past 100 days was sensitivity training.

The information was revealed at a St. Louis Mayor presser discussing how law enforcement plans on handling the events following the announcement of the grand jury as to whether or not Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson will be indicted on any charges for fatally shooting 18 year old Mike Brown last August. The controversial incident set off protests last summer that led to violent face offs between protesters and police.

“The police department has been working over the past 100 days to give sensitivity training to their officers, but I think the biggest key and I’ll get back to this is that we’ve been dialoging with various people throughout the community,” Isom said. “So I believe we’ve gotten to the point where we have some understanding about how we’re going to interact with each other as this thing unfolds. My hope is that because of that, you will not have the necessity to do any of that.”

Isom explained, “Well, I think one of the biggest things is to try to work on restraint—try to understand people’s perspective. People have fear and anger and we need to have some understanding of that and we need to have some empathy and also a little bit of patience.

Despite the burden of the most obstructionist and dysfunctional Congress in history…Despite the challenge of taking office in the midst of the worst financial crisis in 70 years, President Obama has achieved incredible progress for the United States.

This week, the President announced he would use his Constitutionally granted power to take bold steps to overhaul our nation’s broken immigration system. It was a historic move from a historic President.

But Republicans think this is their chance to destroy the President. They’re threatening lawsuits, shutdowns, impeachment…one Republican Congressman even suggested President Obama be thrown in jail!

Andrew, this is critical. The President is under attack and we need to have his back. Will you add your name now and say that you’re standing with President Obama in this fight?

This is England. A foreshadowing of our future?

Via Moonbattery:

Lancashire Constabulary has joined forces with the ground-breaking national anti-knife crime campaign ‘Save a Life, Surrender Your Knife’, as the force’s knife amnesty comes to an end.

Since the amnesty began at the end of August, more than 800 knives have been handed in across the county – including swords, machetes and commando knives.

Axes count too. Presumably so do steak knives, pocket knives, butter knives, and possibly nail clippers.

Lancashire officers have now given their backing to a national initiative designed to raise awareness of knife crime and encourage the surrender of dangerous weapons. …

Despite the amnesty ending [in October], police say people can continue to hand in any knife at any police station with a front counter as well being able to drop them into the designated bins.

Obama On Facebook: Illegal Aliens Are “As American As Any Of Us”

Immigration Protest

Maybe as American as he is..

Via Breitbart:

In a new Facebook video released by the White House, President Obama reflects on his historic immigration reform speech by reminding Americans why he had to act to give illegal immigrants amnesty.

Obama explained he understood that most Americans were frustrated with people who were breaking the law and cutting the line by coming into the country illegally.
With a soft piano soundtrack in the background, Obama helpfully explained to Facebook viewers that “it just comes down to people.”

“You hear stories about young people who were brought here when they were two or three years old – are as American as any of us in attitude and love of country but don’t have the right papers and as a consequence they can’t apply for scholarships or they can’t travel because they are fearful that it might mean that they were deported,” he argued. “What you realize is that’s not what America is about.”

After CBS News aired a damaging report which suggested Attorney General Eric Holder had lied to Congress, the Department of Justice’s (DOJ) press director worked overtime to suppress reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s story and called her CBS superiors to complain.

Attkisson published a blockbuster story on October 3, 2011, based on documents which demonstrated that AG Holder was briefed on the Fast and Furious gun-walking case starting in the summer of 2010.

Those documents directly contradicted Holder’s claim that he first heard about Fast and Furious a few weeks before his congressional testimony in May 2011. Below is the video of Attkisson’s story as it aired:

Yet, liberals are spinning this report as an exoneration of Obama appointees?

Via Fox News:

A leading Republican wants to expand the House investigation into the 2012 Benghazi terrorist attack by adding a Senate probe, as a new House Intelligence Committee report Friday concluded that the initial CIA assessment found no demonstrations prior to the assault and a primary purpose of the CIA operation in eastern Libya was to track the movement of weapons to Syria.

The report described the attack as “complex” with the attackers affiliated with Al Qaeda. It also said the initial CIA assessment concluded there were no demonstrations outside the State Department Consulate in Eastern Libya.

Referring to the House Select committee Chairman, and the Democratic ranking member, Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-SC, said the current House investigation should be expanded.

CAIR Says Obama’s Executive Action On Immigration “Praiseworthy” First Step…

CAIR

CAIR has gone from being an arm of the Muslim Brotherhood to an arm of the DNC.

(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/21/2014) – The Washington-based Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights and advocacy organization, today called President Obama’s announced executive action on immigration a “praiseworthy” first step to address the nation’s crumbling immigration system.

“Along with temporary deportation relief for almost half of the undocumented immigrants in the United States, CAIR calls on the president and Congress to adopt comprehensive immigration reform that provides a framework for all 11 million U.S. residents seeking legal status and eventual citizenship.

“In his national address last night from the White House, President Obama said: ‘If you’ve been in America for more than five years; if you have children who are American citizens or legal residents; if you register, pass a criminal background check, and you’re willing to pay your fair share of taxes — you’ll be able to apply to stay in this country temporarily without fear of deportation. You can come out of the shadows and get right with the law. That’s what this deal is.’

“The president’s decision to provide deportation relief comes at a time when the Republican-controlled U.S. House of Representatives has failed to pass a comprehensive immigration reform package that was not broken down into piecemeal measures that would result in the increase of racial profiling, unconstitutional detention and militarization of the U.S. border.

“The president’s actions are praiseworthy in the face of strong Republican opposition to adopt meaningful immigration reform. Disappointingly, these actions should have come years sooner. Deportations in President Obama’s administration are at an all-time high, and half of those deported have no criminal record or only minor offenses, separating millions of hard working families seeking a path towards citizenship. We hope that this executive action will put a stop to such harmful and needless deportations.

Al Shabab Hijacks A Bus, Picks Out Christians, Kills 28

More war on Christians.

Via NY Post:

NAIROBI, Kenya — Suspected Islamic extremists from Somalia hijacked a bus in Kenya’s north and killed 28 non-Muslims on board after they had been singled out from the rest of the passengers, police officials said Saturday.

The bus traveling to the capital Nairobi with 60 passengers was hijacked at dawn Saturday about 50 kilometers (31 miles) from the town Mandera near Kenya’s border with Somalia, said two police officers.

The police insisted on anonymity because Kenya’s police chief ordered that officers should not speak to the media.

Some of the dead were public servants who were heading to Nairobi for the Christmas vacation, the officers said. About 20 gunmen ordered all the passengers out of the bus and separated those who appeared to be non-Muslims from the rest and shot them at close range, the officers said.

ST. LOUIS, Mo. – Students at Saint Louis University were handed a communist leaflet as they walked between classes Wednesday afternoon that declared “if the murdering pig walks, AMERIKKKA must be brought to a halt.”

The leaflet was distributed by two individuals associated with the Revolutionary Communist Party on Grand Boulevard, a busy street that intersects with the university’s quad and splits the two ends of the urban campus.

“If the decision is announced at night, the next day should be a day of NO BUSINESS AS USUAL at schools,” the leaflet stated. “Buildings on campus should be taken over, classes should become teach-ins on police murder of Black people. All this and more should be done.”

Its author is listed as Carl Dix, national spokesperson for the Revolutionary Communist Party, USA. It called for individuals to “pour into the streets” if Officer Darren Wilson is not indicted.revolutionnewspaper

“Major streets and highways should be blocked and traffic should be unable to proceed on bridges and tunnels,” the leaflet reads. “Professional athletes should join the response by refusing to play. Musicians should cancel appearances.”

Obama Orders Expanded Role For Military In Afghanistan

Via NY Post:

President Obama has quietly ordered an expanded role for US troops in Afghanistan through 2015, including permission to target Taliban fighters in the war-torn country.

Earlier plans had limited US soldiers to counterterrorism strikes against al Qaeda after this year.

The decision won’t affect the total number of US troops in Afghanistan, which will be about 9,800 by year’s end and half that by the end of 2015.

The earlier plan would have only allowed attacks on Taliban if they threatened US forces or gave direct support to al Qaeda.
