Black Leaders Strangely Silent On Obama Amnesty

Black unemployment at 17% and rising…

Via Washington Times:

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) and the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) are endorsing President Obama’s amnesty for illegal immigrants, as they endeavor to maintain the fiction that the Democratic Party is aligned with the needs of the black community and maintain their own positions within the political power structure.

In reality, the failure of these organizations to examine the repercussions of the Executive Order on the black community is one more piece of evidence that black so-called “leaders” only care about the black community in order to keep the “racist meme” alive.

Obama Stereotypes Latinos: “They Mow Our Lawns, Make Our Beds, Clean Out Deadpans”…

Another edition of: “Imagine if a Republican said this.”

BARACK OBAMA: America is not a nation that accepts the hypocrisy of workers who mow our lawns, make our beds, clean out bedpans, with no chance ever to get right with the law.  We’re a nation that gives people a chance to take responsibility and make amends, and then create a better future for their kids.

America is not a nation that should be tolerating the cruelty of ripping children from their parents’ arms.  We’re a nation that values families, and we should work together to keep them together.

Michelle’s kids can eat well, but this is what your kids get…

Via Daily Mail:

Students in Wisconsin have taken to social media to blast Michelle Obama for their Thanksgiving themed lunches that feature a brown mystery mush.
The brown paste was served at Richland Center High School in Wisconsin and students earlier this month and they didn’t find the meal to be especially appetizing.

A student named Hunter Whitney posted photos of the brown mush and a single red apple along with the caption, ‘Had a very #healthylunch today. The apple definitely made up for the ‘mystery mush’ #ThanksMichelleObama.’

Ferguson Protesters Hold Mock Lynching…

Thew claim “police brutality is modern lynching,” or something.

Via Daily Dot:

Outside a St. Louis, Mo., courthouse famous for its gruesome history, three protesters gathered on Friday to staged a mock lynching in advance of a grand jury decision in the fatal police shooting of an unarmed black teenager.

Around noon on Friday, three protesters bound their hands with rope and pulled nooses around their necks at the base of a leafless tree mere yards from the steps of the St. Louis Old Courthouse. The actions of the protesters were intended to raise awareness about a harrowing, albeit controversial, statistic: that every 28 hours a black man is killed by a police officer in the United States.

The three activists, who identified themselves as T-Dubb-O, Rika Tyler, and Rae, told Free Thought Project writer Cassandra Fairbanks that the action was intended to spark conversation while a grand jury in St. Louis nears a decision on whether to indict Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer that on Aug. 9, 2014 shot to death unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Congress Sues Obama Over Obamacare

Sue, pull the money, put a stop to the illegality.

Via Daily Mail:

The House of Representatives, spearheaded by a growing Republican majority, sued the Obama administration on Friday over its implementation of President Barack Obama’s health care law, saying he had overstepped his legal authority in carrying out the program.

The case was assigned to Judge Rosemary M. Collyer, who was appointed to her post by President George W. Bush in 2003. The Department of Justice, which will defend the case on behalf of the Treasury and Health and Human Services Departments, has 60 days to file a response.

GOP lawmakers filed the lawsuit in federal district court in Washington the morning after Obama announced unilateral executive actions to expand protections for millions of immigrants who came to the U.S. illegally.

While Republicans complained that Obama had unconstitutionally exceeded his powers with those actions, the suit filed Friday did not address immigration.

Obama Already Fundraising Off Immigration Executive Order…

Never let a (self-made) crisis go to waste.

I want to tell you why I’m taking action on immigration.

There’s no disagreement in Washington that our system is badly broken. That’s why a bipartisan majority in the Senate passed comprehensive immigration reform. That was more than 500 days ago, but we’re still waiting for the House to hold a vote.

Every day we delay, our country and our economy suffer. Millions of families go on living in the shadows, without a chance to pay their taxes or do what’s necessary to get on the right side of the law.

So, just like every president in the last 70 years — Republican and Democrat — I’m taking steps in my power to help fix this broken immigration system.

If you agree that we can’t wait any longer for meaningful action on immigration, join Americans across the country, including supporters of OFA, who are standing up to fight for reform.

Some voices in this debate want to make this issue about me, so I want to be clear about this:

The actions I’m taking today are no substitute for comprehensive reform. Only Congress can finish the job.

But I’m not just going to wait for that day to come. The American people expect solutions from the people they send to Washington. Today, I’m doing what I can to take common-sense steps forward.

Add your name if you’re ready to fight for reform:

Obama Regime Admits They Over-Reported Obamacare Enrollment Numbers

B270fG5IAAA6voZ

They’re hoping to slip this one by you…

Via NYDN:

The Obama administration admitted Thursday that it over-reported the number of people who signed up for medical coverage under the President’s signature health care law by double-counting, in its initial reported numbers, hundreds of thousands of people who enrolled in dental insurance plans.

Health and Human Services Secretary Sylvia M. Burwell acknowledged the error on social media after a Bloomberg News report alleged that the administration had included about 400,000 dental plans in numbers it reported for enrollments under the Affordable Care Act.

“The mistake we made is unacceptable,” Burwell said on Twitter. “I will be communicating that clearly throughout the (department).”

A White House spokesman later told the Associated Press that the administration had mistakenly over-reported Obamacare enrollment numbers by about 400,000 by double-counting consumers who had purchased both dental coverage and medical insurance coverage separately through Healthcare.gov and various state insurance marketplaces created under the law.

British Jihadi Who Said Islamic State Flag Would Fly Over White House Killed Near Kobani…

Abu Abdullah al-Habashi

Another one bites the dust.

Via Guardian:

A London man has been killed fighting for Islamic State (Isis), social media accounts linked to the extremist group have said.

Abu Abdullah al-Habashi was said to have died in fighting in and around the Syrian border town of Kobani.

He was born into a Christian family of Eritrean heritage and converted to Islam. The 20-year-old became a human propaganda machine for Isis, appearing in a video urging Britons to travel to Syria, another vowing the black flag of Isis would one day fly over the White House, and also appeared in a BBC interview.

He adopted the name Abu Abdullah al-Britani, and in one photo was pictured next to the corpse of a decapitated Syrian soldier.

At least 27 Britons have died fighting in Syria, and it is estimated that about 500 Britons may have joined Isis despite pleas for them not to.

AP Calls Obama A Liar: Fact Check Of Obama’s Speech Reveals “Notable Omissions”

Obama immigration

Stunning, they actually call him out on some of his lies.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama made some notable omissions Thursday night in his remarks about the unilateral actions he’s taking on immigration.

A look at his statements and how they compare with the facts:

OBAMA: “It does not grant citizenship, or the right to stay here permanently, or offer the same benefits that citizens receive – only Congress can do that. All we’re saying is we’re not going to deport you.”

THE FACTS: He’s saying, and doing, more than that. The changes also will make those covered eligible for work permits, allowing them to be employed in the country legally and compete with citizens and legal residents for better-paying jobs.

___

OBAMA: “Although this summer, there was a brief spike in unaccompanied children being apprehended at our border, the number of such children is now actually lower than it’s been in nearly two years.”

THE FACTS: The numbers certainly surged this year, but it was more than a “brief spike.” The number of unaccompanied children apprehended at the border has been on the rise since the 2011 budget year. That year about 16,000 children were found crossing the border alone. In 2012, the Border Patrol reported more than 24,000 children, followed by more than 38,800 in 2013. In the last budget year, more than 68,361 children were apprehended.

FBI Floods Ferguson With 100 Agents Ahead Of Grand Jury Decision…

Holder’s shock troops to keep the Ferguson police inline.

Via ABC News:

The FBI has sent about 100 agents to the St. Louis area to help deal with any problems that could arise from the grand jury decision in the police shooting of Ferguson teenager Michael Brown.

In addition to the FBI, other federal agencies have also mobilized staffers to get to St. Louis today, sources told ABC News.

A decision by the grand jury is expected soon, but St. Louis authorities said today that the grand jury is still meeting. The panel will decide whether or not to indict Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson for shooting Brown, who was unarmed, on Aug. 9.

Authorities are braced for a recurrence of angry protests that turned violent at times during the summer.

The FBI has ordered its Ferguson contingent to mobilize and arrive in the St. Louis area today. In addition to FBI personnel already in the St. Louis area, about 100 more are being dispatched, law enforcement sources said. Additional FBI personnel have been put on alert so that they could be called in as part of a second emergency wave if necessary, ABC News has learned.

BREAKING: IRS Says Lois Lerner’s 30,000 Missing Emails Have Been Recovered…

Lerner

Friday afternoon news dump.

Via Washington Examiner:

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 the IRS email system.

“They just said it took them several weeks and some forensic effort to get these emails off these tapes,” a congressional aide told the Washington Examiner.

Committees in the House and Senate are seeking the emails, which they believe could show Lerner was working in concert with Obama administration officials to target conservative and Tea Party groups seeking tax-exempt status before the 2012 presidential election.

Many Police Families In Ferguson Have Left Town Or Gone Into Hiding After Threats

Via Daily Mail:

The families of many police officers in Ferguson, Missouri, are in hiding or running from town amid death and assault threats.

One police wife told KTVI that she’s received threats over the phone and she’s been paranoid for her and her young daughter’s safety ever since.

‘Did they follow me here?’ she told the station. ‘Did I do a good enough job after work today of taking different routes, on my way home?

Tensions are rising in Ferguson as a grand jury decides whether to charge white Officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting of unarmed black teenager Michael Brown, 18.

In one recent message, a caller says: ‘Would you rather hear me coming out, coming out and robbing your house? And it would be like, it’d just be like silence man, you couldn’t hear nothing.’

‘It’s very frightening,’ said the police wife, who asked to not be identified.

‘Most people who have a family member who’s a police officer are very proud of what they do.’

She added: ‘This is real and people actually do know how to find us and they do want to harm us.’

Obama Establishes “Task Force On New Americans” As Part Of Immigration Order…

How exactly did we go from “illegal aliens” to “new Americans?”

Via WhiteHouse.gov:

The President’s Immigration Accountability Executive Actions will help secure the border, hold nearly 5 million undocumented immigrants accountable, and ensure that everyone plays by the same rules.  Acting within his legal authority, the President is taking an important step to fix our broken immigration system.

These executive actions crack down on illegal immigration at the border, prioritize deporting felons not families, and require certain undocumented immigrants to pass a criminal background check and pay their fair share of taxes as they register to temporarily stay in the U.S. without fear of deportation.

These are common sense steps, but only Congress can finish the job. As the President acts, he’ll continue to work with Congress on a comprehensive, bipartisan bill—like the one passed by the Senate more than a year ago—that can replace these actions and fix the whole system. [...]

Ferguson Schools Cancel All Classes Next Week…

No complaints from the teachers’ union.

Via The Hill:

A school district that includes part of Ferguson, Mo., will cancel classes next week in anticipation of a grand jury decision on whether to indict a police officer for killing an unarmed black teenager, according to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“With the heightened anxiety and activity, we thought it would be better for students and staff to extend the holiday at this point,” Jennings School District superintendent Tiffany Anderson told the paper.

The system had already planned to close schools on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday for the Thanksgiving holiday, so school officials decided to give students the entire week off. That makes it more likely that students will be out of school when a grand jury decision is announced.

Multiple reports have suggested the grand jury will not indict Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson. Wilson, who is white, shot and killed Michael Brown, who was 18 and black, in an incident that sparked large-scale protests and calls to reevaluate how minorities are treated by police officers.

San Fran Photography Company Shuts Down Over Relentless Hate Campaign Directed At Them For Declining To Shoot Gay Wedding…

The Diversity Enforcers get another scalp.

Via SF Gate:

Confronted over their decision not to take pictures at same-sex weddings, a Bay Area photography company opted to permanently put on its lens caps and shut its doors, according to a statement posted on the company’s website.

Urloved photography, a San Rafael husband-and-wife team, said it had recently referred a San Francisco gay couple to another photographer for their wedding photos because they “have different personal beliefs that we have difficulty with.”

“We genuinely felt referring this couple to a photographer who does share their personal beliefs would provide them with the best service for their special day,” a statement on urlovedphotography.com reads.

The incident is only the latest of dozens of recent national disputes between gay couples and businesses who deny service while claiming personal or religious freedom. [...]

After being turned away by Urloved, one of the men, who asked to not be named, took the fight to Facebook.

“Great shots but this company denied me and my fiance, a same-sex couple, from their services. Stand up and say something about it,” he wrote Nov. 4 on one of the company’s postings.

The business owners, Nang and Chris Mai, apologized to the couple, then closed up shop after they said they were bombarded with nasty calls and e-mails.

“We have been flooded with hate calls, e-mails and accusations that inaccurately depict our business,” the couple wrote. “On top of that we have come to a difficult decision that we will no longer be in the wedding photography business.”

BREAKING: Ferguson Verdict Imminent, Prosecutors Preparing News Conference To Announce Grand Jury Decision – Update: Prosecutor Says Jury Still Meeting…

Time to rumble.

(Reuters) – Prosecutors are preparing a news conference to announce the decision of the grand jury weighing whether to bring charges against a white police officer who shot dead an unarmed black teenager in Ferguson, Missouri, officials said on Friday.

The grand jury was still in session on Friday and no date or time for the decision announcement was known, the St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office said. Officials have said a decision by the grand jury is expected by the end of the month.

U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder urged police to show restraint in dealing with any protests that may follow the grand jury’s decision on whether to indict the officer, Darren Wilson, in the Aug. 9 shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown.

Update:

FERGUSON, Mo. (AP) — Activists, authorities and the family of Michael Brown called for calm Friday as a grand jury drew closer to an announcement in the Ferguson police shooting. But a spokesman for St. Louis County’s top prosecutor said the panel is still in session.

There was no indication when the grand jury would render a decision on whether to indict Ferguson officer Darren Wilson in the death of Brown, who was 18 and unarmed when he was killed.

Ed Magee, a spokesman for county Prosecutor Bob McCulloch, said Friday in an email to reporters that the grand jury is still reviewing the case. The time, date and place for a news conference announcing the decision has not been decided, he wrote.

The truth is, the closest thing we have to amnesty right now is doing nothing and that’s what House Republicans are doing.”
